Owner’s Campout 2019
After a very successful first and second annual fall Timberleaf Owner’s Campout in 2017 and even bigger in 2018, we’ve secured a spot for the 2019 edition. Last year we filled our campsite outside of Aspen, Colorado nearly to capacity with 10 trailers! This year, after much deliberation, we have selected a site outside of Leadville, Colorado. The historic Camp Hale East Fork Group Campground has accommodations for a multitude of trailers and space for everyone to be comfortably separated from one another (you know… not right next to your neighbor).
The Camp Hale campground is located just a stones throw from the East Fork Eagle River and Cataract Creek, home to wonderful fishing opportunities. Just up the road from camp is the infamous Colorado Trail, this segment of the Colorado trail highlights a climb up to the summit of Kokomo and Searle passes between Camp Hale and Copper Mountain. It’s an… intense… climb of 3,443’ with truly breathtaking views. In addition to miles of back roads, forest service roads, and 4wd trails in the nearby vicinity, there will be plenty of opportunities for activity throughout the weekend!
Friday, September 13 - Monday, September 16
This year we decided to book the site for three nights, while our main gatherings will be Friday and Saturday nights, we encourage all of you to stay and enjoy the crisp mountain air for Sunday night as well before making the trek home.
Saturday Night Potluck & BBQ
As is tradition, we will be hosting a BBQ night and gathering on Saturday night. This evening is our only designated gathering night, so we encourage all to come to the main area and hang out! We will be smoking pork shoulder and will provide a vegetarian option for those who don’t partake in the consumption of meat. Please bring a side dish to share and beverages of your choosing for yourself.
Location & Weather
The East Fork campground is located to the east of the main Camp Hale Memorial Campground, near the intersections of Jones Gulch Road and E Fork Eagle Road. It is a wooded loop with many campsite opportunities for our trailers.
The elevation is 9,200’ above sea level, so please be prepared for camping at high altitudes. Average temperatures in this area in September are mid-60s during the day, and mid-30s at night. While we don’t expect snow, it is always a good idea to be prepared for snowfall in the Colorado high country in September.
Spaces are limited so don't wait to register!
Price is per person, please purchase additional tickets for each guest in attendance. We have reserved the campsite for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Our group BBQ & potluck will be Saturday evening; feel free to stay Sunday night as well! We have two ticket options: primary ticketholder and guest tickets. Please purchase a guest ticket for anyone that will be accompanying you to the campout.
Only one ticket per person is necessary for the entire weekend
