    COLORADO RALLY!

    Hi Coloradans!
    We are new to the PUP community and just saw this.
    It is DH and I, DS and our aussie dog. We may be interested if there is still room available. What are the details? And is it just all PUPs hanging out or do activities go on. Just curious.
    Thanks!

    Always room at Dorchester, not many sites but you can just camp next to the campround and be good! Thinking I will go up that Friday evening. I think PUPs hanging out and getting to know each other, lots to do in the north end of Taylor Park like hike and fish and mostly just enjoy an incredibly beautiful place.

    Hope to see you there!

    We are pretty much there. What is the best way to get there from the denver area? How long of a drive should I expect?

    Take 285 to 24 North to Buena Vista.
    Once in Buena Vista, follow the signs to Cottonwood Pass (or you can stop and ask anyone in town). It is a left hand turn (west) right about in the middle of town. Go up and over Cottonwood Pass. It turns to dirt at the top of the pass (this is where Chaffee County become Gunnison County). Follow the road west down the backside of Cottonwood Pass. It will "T" into the road through Taylor Park. Turn right, or north, at the "T". Follow that road about 9 or 10 miles north, Dorchester Campground will be on your left. There is a sign for Dorchester and a cabin which is all that is left of the actual town of Dorchester that used to be there.

    It is a beautiful spot.

    See you there!!

    Okay Colorado folks. Where is everyone located? I was planning on being there this weekend until I realized that it was a military weekend for me. I am not too keen about traversing the mountain passes with the PU, especially since I don't have the brakes functioning yet.

    Maybe try to arrange another rally in a month or so?

    Hey Folks, it's ok that no one else was there - maybe two other campsites in use. I got there Thursday PM and left Monday AM. Nice relaxing weekend. I read a complete novel! Saw Elk & maybe a bear - pretty dark to tell for sure. Also - NO WATER AT DORCHESTER! If you don't bring - you can fill at Dinner Station - last 5 miles of road very poor. I guess we know who the real campers are now! FYI camping fee is $10 - no water, no trash pick up - Vault toilets clean and not too ripe - all the TP you need. $5.00 if your an old guy like me!
