Help support your MeetupChip in
Its all about having fun and getting away from routine life for a day, a weekend, weekdays, or even longer trips ... We live in a fantastic location with the outdoors minutes away and outdoor activities and camping are some of the best ways to enjoy the splendor of the outdoors and our Mountains here in Colorado and around the country! All of our trips, activities, events, etc will come from our members and organizers. Everyone is encouraged to make suggestions and throw out ideas for planning our next activity, trip, or adventure! Please note we are mostly limited to Colorado, however please do organize any area you want.
Our camping trips will include a wide variety of camping types: Backpacking, tent camping, car camping, pop-up tent trailers, and some places accessible by Camper or 5th wheel. Some of the trips may involve visiting established campgrounds with water, campfire rings, restroom facilities and fees (these trips will have a cost to help cover the site reservation costs). Other car camping trips may involve boondocking using unimproved campsites with no facilities but also no reservation fees or even where you can drive up to or at least very close to the actual campsite.
We are Pet & children friendly, in fact adults, kids and pets are normally invited to any trips/activities, but PLEASE read the description of each activity &/or trip for any specific information regarding kids & pets. Always contact the organizer for that trip, if you have any questions. Please note that pets are not allowed on some trails or in some areas. Many improved locations or state parks in Colorado require that your pet be leashed/restrained at all times.
We are not only about camping ... outdoors activities, longer trips, day hikes, rock climbing, fishing, mountain biking, skiing, road trips, and more in Colorado or around the country are all open events if you are interested! We hope you will join us in our exploration of outdoors here in Colorado and elsewhere. We always welcome more events and the organizers to plan and lead trips ... so anyone who has plans can post their ideas on the message board, or contact the leadership team and we can designate you the host, if you want to plan something.
What is Boondocking? For our purposes we defining boondocking as: when you camp for FREE somewhere with NO hookups (without amenities) and NOT in a campground ... which means there are NO Toilet facilities (outhouse or otherwise) are provided. This is also sometimes called Dry Camping ... Yes, we do understand that Boondocking may not really be the best term, but it has somehow come into 'common use' in camping & RV circles. So we are using it with the above meaning :o) You are welcome to bring 'toilet' facilities ... there are many types of commercial and homemade options used for Boondocking ...
