Owner’s Campout 2021
Barring any restrictions, you’re invited to join us in August!
We’re very excited to invite you to the fifth annual Timberleaf Trailers Customer Campout! In the same location as the 2019 campout, with stellar views of the Rockies, and a beautiful setting, we look forward to joining you all for our favorite event of the year! Whether you have your trailer or are still waiting for it to be built, we invite you to join us this year!
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!
Thursday, August 12 – Monday, August 16
Like 2019, 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 Thursday & Sunday nights 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 (4-6 servings) and beverages of your choosing for yourself.
August 12th @ 3pm – August 16th @ 11am
Forest Rd 7261A, Leadville, CO 80461
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 August are mid-60s-low-70s 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 even in August.
Tickets / registration is handled through EventBrite, scroll down to register or click here.
August in Colorado can be very dry, while we would love to have camp fires, please be prepared for a fire ban. Propane fire pits are permitted in Colorado during most levels of fire ban.
We are providing the entrée for Saturday night’s potluck, please come prepared for your other meals & beverages.
Please bring a small side dish for the potluck (enough for 4-6 servings).
Bring plenty of sun screen! The high elevation makes sun exposure extra intense.
This site is “primitive” camping, there are pit toilets but no running water, power, or amenities otherwise.
- We will be camping in bear country. The bears in this area are not known to be aggressive, but can be food-curious, there are bear-proof food bins around the campsite to securely keep food & coolers away from the reach of curious critters.
- Please be prepared to wear a mask when interacting with other guests.
- The reservation for this site was made last year, currently we are proceeding under the assumption that things will improve and limitations will be lifted for gatherings.
- If we are unable to host the event at this location you will be notified as soon as we can form an alternative plan.
- Backup Plan A: Dispersed camping within the region.
- If we need to cancel the event for any reason you will be refunded the cost of your tickets.
- If you are sick or symptomatic, please stay home, we want you to feel better soon!
Camp Hale is a historic training facility for the 10th Mountain Division Troops, the nearby historical site is a very cool glimpse into the past. Our camp is located just off of the infamous Colorado Trail, which winds its way from Denver to Durango. In addition to the numerous streams and ponds in the area that are ripe for fishing, slabs of rock to climb, there are no shortages of activities to do within a stone’s throw of camp.
Price is per trailer/site, please add additional guest 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 paid ticket per trailer is necessary for the entire weekend. See below to register.
