Camp Hale Campground

  • This campground is located in the Camp Hale National Historic Site about 15 miles south of Minturn, CO in a wide, flat, open valley sparsely forested by lodgepole pines. There are 21 campsites available. It is near the headwaters of the Eagle River with the East Fork River close by. The Colorado Trail crosses within walking distance and the gravel roads in the Camp Hale area provide easy walking and bike paths. Fishing is also available in numerous small streams nearby. Camp Hale Memorial Campground sits at an elevation of 9,200 feet, offering guests a wonderful setting for recreation and relaxation.

    Camp Hale is historic because the 10th Mountain Division, an unit of 15,000 men, trained here in mountaineering and skiing techniques during WWII. Some saw combat in Italy during the war. Most of the buildings have been torn down, but foundations and other "footprints" remain. The 99th Infantry Battalion (Viking Battalion) also trained at Camp Hale. There are interpretive signs along US Route 24, explaining the history and accomplishments of Camp Hale.
