2018, July 23-26: Rocky Mountain Egg Rendezvous

The 2018 Rocky Mountain Egg Rendezvous has an arrival date of July 23rd and the departure date of July 26th. We have reserved the group site at the Mountain Park campground on the Cache la Poudre river in north central Colorado. If you need electric hookups there are sites near by the group site that can be reserved on www.recreation.gov. I have not camped here before so I do not have any information about the campground other than what is on Recreation.gov.

I have great memories of a little bar and grill (mostly bar and dance floor) up Cache la Poudre Canyon, just below the Little Narrows on the river, named the Mishawaka Inn. Former college girl friend played base guitar and sang lead vocals for a good little bluegrass band named "Everybody and His Brother" that played gigs there often. From a quick web search, it looks like it's still there. We always swore that if the band got enough people stomping on the dance floor that the Inn would collapse into the river and we would all go for a white water ride down the river. Never happened, but we had fun trying. Beautiful area.

Thom, I get up that way frequently and that is a very nice campground and a good choice for a get-together. You will not be disappointed. There is a nice hike right out of the campground (Mt. McConnell), and other hikes in the canyon. Up the river about 5 miles+- is Glen Echo - a nice restaurant/store/gas spot. And down the river also about 5 miles is "The Mish", as Dale mentions...a restaurant/bar/event venue. The campground is maybe 30 miles from Fort Collins for those who need city stuff. If there is anything I can do to help you out, don't hesitate to ask. These are my stompin' grounds.

We are very interested. We haven't made any vacation plans yet but we like these kind of campouts. Sounds like a nice place. I'll let you know if we can come. How many people can camp in the group site? Thanks for the posting. Jann Todd

Have you ever been in the group site? If so, can you guess-ta-mate how many Eggs can fit? The site description says up to 75 people but does not say how many rigs. I won't hold you to it, just looking for an idea how much room we will have.

The campground is closed now for the season but I still hike that trail all winter. I'll poke around and if I can find the group site (is there just one?), I'll attempt to figure out how many TV/trailer combo's can fit. You might get a better answer, however, by contacting the campground or reservation site directly for that kind of detail. I do know there are some nice stone buildings that I believe were built by the CCC, as were some of the trail improvements. I think the whole site was originally developed by the City of Fort Collins back in the day when people would leave the town to camp and recreate and cool off in in the mountains. A lot of pretty cool history up the Poudre river.

If you Google the campground then zoom and go satellite image, you can get an idea of the overall size of the campground, and from the non-shaded sites, you can visualize how much space is allowed for each camp site (ample). So, using the eye-square statistical method, I'm guessing their website means 75 camp sites. I don't know if this link will carry over into the forum, but here's what I was looking at:

The group site is in the north section of the camp ground near where the river bend is. Recreation.gov states there are 32 camp sites plus the group site in Mountain Park Camp Ground and the group site specifically states "Max Num of People:75".

Also if you look at the satellite images, the area where the group site is has a lot of trees so you can not tell the size.

Group area - and thoughts

TomandCallie it is my stomping grounds as well and I think it would be a great idea for you to go check out the group area especially before the snow flies. I think it is well marked. I doubt I will get up there anytime soon.

It is a great campground but make sure how many rigs the group area will hold. I don't recall it being that large. I do remember the old stone buildings for picnics and group events. So make sure you have enough room for all the rigs that might show up. The entire campground is not that large. It is truly amazing being right next to the river. There is great hiking and people can go down the canyon and hook up with one of the whitewater rafting outfits for a great exciting day if they choose to.

Also make sure you do lots of advertising to possible attendees to let them know if they are going to try to make reservations, do it early. It is a very very popular place. There are other campgrounds along the canyon but they will be a bit of a drive. Meanwhile I will try to win the lottery. We sold our Casita last year and now really want a 21' Escape.
