Hi All,

We have details on the campsite! As most of you know, we are teaming up with our compadres in Colorado Springs, the Brew Brothers, for our annual camping trip. We are also coordinating it around the Brewer’s Rendezvous in Salida this year (see below). The Brew Brothers have made this an annual event and have told me they have plenty of room to accommodate our joint venture this year.

Info on the Brewer’s Rendezvous

16th Annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous; Saturday, July 14, 2012, 1-5 p.m., Riverside Park, downtown Salida. 45 brewers from around the state offer their best. Sorry, no dogs allowed in park. Local food vendors selling a variety of items ranging from burritos, hot dogs, Thai noodles. (719) 539-2068 (877) 772-5432. Sponsored by the Colorado Brewers Guild and the Salida Chamber of Commerce.


The Brothers tell me they have quite the festival at the campsite the Friday before so some of us are getting there Thursday night. If you have a camper there’s a RV park across the river (someone please bring a boat).  

Here’s the directions that correlate with the photo above:

  • On Hwy. 50, 1.2 miles from the intersection of Hwy. 50 and 291 in Salida, turn north on Road 102.
  • The road is between mile markers 223 and 224.You know you’ve turned on the right road if you are immediately on a bridge crossing the river.
  • Go 0.25 miles staying to the left of the stockyards up ahead.
  • After the 0.25 miles the road reaches some railroad tracks.
  • Turn right at the railroad tracks.
  • After 0.2 miles the road forks. Take the right fork.
  • About 0.15 miles further up the road there is a clearing overlooking the RV park. We will be camping in the clearing near the river.

Here’s the link to the RV Park: http://www.fourseasonsrvresort.com

Check the RHBC Facebook page for a detailed photo of the location.

I’m probably missing several things but this is a start. Let’s keep this forum going!
