2550 U.S. Highway 34, Drake
You can vaporize cannabis in any of the nine cabins at Rustic River and smoke as much as you want outside on the grounds. Located near Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, the fifteen-acre site has walking trails, a community campfire and a picnic area. The cabins were built in the 1940s and feature wood-burning fireplaces and cool old Western decor, but are updated with wi-fi and electricity.

Little Elk Meadows Lodge
12307 U.S. Highway 36, Lyons
Little Elk Meadows Lodge has several 4/20-friendly camping sites for cannabis users in a lush area off Highway 36 in between Lyons and Estes Park. And for those wanting to take a night off from sleeping under the stars without sacrificing their toking activities, Little Elk Meadows also rents a two-bedroom walk-out basement suite, which is also pot-friendly.
260 East Pagosa Street, Pagosa Springs
Yes, the First Inn is pot-friendly (though you can only vape inside, and smoke at outdoor smoking areas), but the real amenity is its location: Pagosa Springs is essentially engulfed by the Rio Grande and San Juan national forests and right next to Squaretop Mountain and Blackhead Peak. So you can tip your dab pen, order in a pizza and enjoy a little air-conditioning after a day full of hiking. You deserve it.
