Camping @ Leadville Aug 24-26, 2012 w/ Berner Group

Hi,

I'm the leader of the Colorado Bernese Mountain Dog Meetup & would like to invite the Canine Adventure Club to an upcoming camping event!

Last year I reserved a group campground at the Printer Boy campground near Turquoise Lake a few miles from Leadville. Unfortunately we got hit with a surprise rainshower that lasted all weekend. So... We're up for another try!

http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Printer_Boy/r/campgroundDetails.do?parkId=70313&contractCode=NRSO&chkAg=y

To help off-set the cost of the reservation, we will be charging a small amount per tent site.. :)

There is water at the site, as well as some picnic tables (Most likely the fire ban will still be in effect - so we will have to be creative about what we bring to eat). The bathrooms are a short (3 min) walk away. The bathrooms are nice (not outhouses), but have no shower facilities.

Please bring food for you and your dog - and feel free to bring stuff to share.

Bring WARM clothes and more blankets/sleeping bags than you think you will need - even though it's still summer, Leadville is 10,000+ in elevation and nights are chilly. :)  Also - if you do trailer camping, there is room for 1-2.

It's a beautiful area and is a short drive to the lake. Dogs *should* be on leash. :) If you have a long no-tangle leash - or one on a stake, it would be good for keeping the dogs in the camping site.

Please contact Buffy Snider if you have any questions.

    Had a great time with our small group. The weather was perfect (even if it was a little brisk at night). The Train ride in Leadville was fantastic!

    On Saturday at 10:00am, we will be taking the Leadville train for a trip with the dogs. It's 1 1/2 hours round-trip and costs $35. If you are interested in joining us - go to the "Suggested" tab for the Meetup, and RSVP! :-)

    See you soon!

    Hi Buffy. I dropped my check in the mail today. You will have tomorrow. Thank you for organizing. I am going to bring wine and cupcakes. Can I bring wine? I have been driving past this lake for years and am so excited to actually hang out here. I plan on staying beyond the couple of days. Is anyone else planning the same.

      Hi Kathleen - Thank you, I will look for your check. Unfortunately we have to get back to work - but it's a great area to explore! Yes, Wine is fine - we're looking forward to a mellow group (no keggers please) :-) & my husband is looking forward to the cupcakes!

    Buffy, we were so excited to meet other dog owners that love to camp, but the weather forecast and the fact that I am in the first week of school with a To Do list a mile long that can't be done out of town, is causing us to give up our spot. Someone is welcome to take our spot and take advantage of our pre payment. We don't expect our money back at this late date...so just fill our spot and we will hopefully join you all on your next adventure.

      Hi Colleen, We're sorry you can't make it this time - but I totally understand. Hope to see you at another meetup sometime.

    Just a reminder to make sure you bring a tarp, or tent footprint - the ground may be wet, and it might rain. :)
    Also kindling/newspaper would be good too...

    Hi Paula,
    It is possible - but I bet the sites are already sold out. I got these reservations about 6 months ago. I can check into it and see if they have any other spots open at the site - or another one close by. Buffy

    Question....since we already have 5 people waiting could we do another group?

    Hi Stellina,
    It is $20 per tent - so hopefully we'll have enough people to cover the cost of the reservation. Please let me know if you have any other questions! :) Buffy

  • Stellina G.

    When would we need to pay? Also, is $20 per person or per tent (we are a couple). We are very interested in attending but we would like to know a bit more about general "house-keeping' details :o) Thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
