There's a puptacular spot to camp with a large party in the White River National Forest. Camp Hale East Fork Group Campsite can accommodate up to 200 people. There are spots for tents, campers, and RVs here but no hook-ups. The site has picnic tables, some grills, a large fire ring, and two accessible pads. You'll have to bring water or a purifier with you when you come here. Set up camp by the scenic East Fork Eagle River and get ready for adventure!
The group campground is in a clearing by the water that has limited shade. Once you set up your site, grab your pole and go fishing for trout in the Eagle River or at Camp Hale Pond nearby. There are several areas to go walking or biking here. Take a hike on a section of the Colorado Trail. One part starts just outside of camp and heads east to Kokomo Pass. Head through sage fields, across a bridge, and past a waterfall as you climb to a steep ravine. Another pathway will take you through a meadow and a few stands of lodgepole pines on the way to Tennessee Pass. Take time in your travels to look for wildlife like bighorn sheep, elk, and deer.
Pets can camp with you here if they're on-leash, and many of the trails allow your fur-babies. Just make sure you follow any posted restrictions. Use waste collection bags to pick up their poop and pack it out when you leave. There are no dump stations in the campground.
Camp Hale East Fork Group Campsite offers a secluded area to gather with your friends or family members. Plan an outdoor reunion with a range of fun activities. Hike and fish in the wilderness during the day and gather around the fire at night to reminisce. Obey the food storage order to help protect yourself and your belongings from bears.
