Since the last camping trip was such a hit, let's do another one!
This will be a Dog friendly and Kid friendly trip
This is primitive car camping only, so make sure to bring plenty of water and all the gear you will need and of course some adult style beverages to relax with around the campfire.
The Plan: To do a group camp in the Jefferson area that will allow folks to do their own hikes, mountain biking or fishing and have a relaxing atmosphere to come back to and socialize around the camp fire. There are many trails to hike or mountain bike in the area (Mt Guyot @ 13,370 ft, the Colorado Trail, West Jefferson Trail...) or lot's of fishing to be had (Jefferson Lake, Upper and Lower Michigan Resevoir). I will lead an easy hike on Sunday along the West Jefferson trail and plan on doing some fishing Saturday after setting up camp. So bring your boots, bikes, or poles and let's have a good time!
Directions (if you don't want to convoy): From Conifer take the 285 south for 37 miles to the town of Jefferson. As soon as you come into town you will want to turn right onto Michigan Creek Rd (Park county rd 35). As you take Michigan Creek Rd at mile 2.8 it will fork, stay to the right (turns to dirt road here). At mile 5.3 the road will again fork, stay to the left this time. At mile 6.3 it will open out to a large meadow with large pine trees that can accommodate a lot of people. For those technology savy people, the GPS coordinates for the camp site are 39.415524, -105.888551.
You won't need a high clearance vehicle for this as the dirt road is fairly well maintained. I've seen a mini van all the way at the top of Georgia pass following this route.
When you RSVP please note whether you will be camping, convoying with us, or just coming up for the day.
