Mueller Sstate Park Scenic View

​A popular watchable wildlife area, Mueller is home to abundant wildlife including elk, black bear, hawks, and mule deer.

Mueller State Park welcomes leashed pets in campgrounds, picnicking areas, but not on the hiking trails or in the backcountry. By keeping pets off of the trails, we increase the chances of visitors seeing the various species of wildlife in the park and are better able to maintain this pristine Watchable Wildlife Area. To learn more, read Pets at Mueller State Park. Pets must be on a leash at all times unless they are in a tent, RV or personal vehicle. We discourage leaving your pets in an unattended vehicle as intense sunshine can quickly heat up the inside of vehicles to as much as 20 degrees hotter than the outside temperature. Please plan and make appropriate arrangements for your pet during your stay with us.

Start Your Adventure at the Visitor Center

The Visitor Center, located atop Big View Overlook, features a scenic panoramic overlook hidden below the shadow of Pikes Peak.  In the heart of Mueller State Park, this information area features indoor and outdoor exhibits emphasizing the park's natural habitats, wildlife and heritage. Visit the Watchable Wildlife Kiosk and learn about those who call Mueller home. At the Gazebo, hand painted panels of the surrounding mountains help you get your bearings before heading out on the Wapiti Nature Trail.

Three trailheads from the Visitor Center parking lot connect you to short family friendly or long connecting hikes. Don't forget to pick up a trail map before you head out!

We're open for camping!

Mueller State Park will have road renovation in the campground during the summer 2014. This phase of the project will be repaving all of the campground roads and campsites beginning in May and lasting through September.
