Colorado River Weekend - September 10 - 12, 2021!
Join us for the last river weekend of 2021 on the Colorado River!
CAMPING: We will be camping at the Pumphouse Campground (Co Hwy 106, Kremmling, CO 80459) in group campsites A & B. From Dillon take Hwy 9 North 36 miles to miles to Grand County Road 1 (Trough Road). Go west on Trough Road for about 11 miles, and turn right onto Pumphouse access road. Take the road to the river. The campground has pit toilets but no running water so bring whatever you need. We have reserved the group campsites for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights so 1) vehicles can be left at the site on Sunday while you boat and 2) you can camp there Sunday night if desired. There probably isn't room for large campers but raft trailers should be fine. There are also 20 individual campsites that may be better for campers but are probably all first come first served. There is a day-use fee of $5 per day, payable to the BLM on entry for each vehicle.

CRUISES: Cruises from here are downstream on the Colorado from Pumphouse, the Lower Blue if it is running, Gore Canyon, and the play wave at the campground. If you're interested in leading or sweeping a cruise register as such but also email the organizer (Gail Tubbs) to let him know what you'd like to do.
REGISTRATIONS: The group campground is limited to 60 people. Everyone participating in the weekend must be a CW member and registered regardless of whether they are boating or just a fun hog reading a book on the side of the river for the day. This includes significant others and children. We have four types of registrations. If you are volunteering to lead or sweep a cruise and want to join the group camp the weekend is FREE. Day participants and volunteers (either traveling in for the day or camping at an individual site) are also free. For all other participants the cost for the camping will be $10 per person for the weekend.
ACA Membership: CW encourages our members to also be members of the American Canoe Association (ACA). Not only does your $40/year individual membership support the mission and programs of the ACA, it also saves CW $10 per participant per event that we have to otherwise pay ACA for insurance, which frees up your CW membership dues for other CW programs. You can join here if interested Join ACA.
