Our daughter and son-in-law live in nearby Florissant, CO. On visits out there, we have been to Cripple Creek a number of times. A really neat little town with lots of history in mining.

Donkeys roam free downtown.
There is a railroad ride you can take from there..scenic ride on a steam-engine train
The Heritage Center (welcome center) just before getting into town is very interesting.

If you gamble a bit, there is a Casino there...but even if that's not for you, they have a good restaurant...great breakfasts.

Take a walk downtown and a drive to see the old houses, painted in pastel colors.

Nearby Victor is also an old mining town...almost a ghost town now.

The drive up to Cripple Creek on Hwy 67 affords some beautiful scenery.

Even though this reply is late, it might help others if they do a search on Cripple Creek. We stayed in a small private campground outside of Divide CO with RV parking a few years back. It's called Golden Bell and was beautiful and centrally located. Driving down the hill to Colorado Springs wasn't a big deal. Also, we were close to Cripple Creek and other hiking spots. We were in town for a family wedding - bride and groom were finishing up at the Academy.

The first few days we were there, we were alone other than the 4 couples that were camp hosts. Later in the week, others showed up but it was never crowded. It was also on 300+ acres so we had plenty of places to hike.

We enjoyed it so much, it was worthwhile to give the camp a donation.

I have many other photos but here are a few:
