Come for the whole weekend or join us for a day!


This will be a great time to spend time together and get to know your GRACE family better while we enjoy God's beautiful creation!

A huge "THANK YOU!!" to Ed and Michelle Ford for being generous and inviting the Church to use their land for our campout!

WHEN:

We plan to begin arriving on August 1st and enjoying ourselves in the mountains until the late afternoon on Sunday, August 4th

WHERE: 8014 Manhattan Rd, Red Feather Lakes, CO 80545
(map & directions below!)

We will be on the Ford's private property in Red Feathers! It is a beautiful location close to lakes and many places to hike, take a walk, and chill around the campfire! We will be at 8640 ft elevation. Plenty of Space to park RVs and set up tents!

THE DRIVE:

The drive is easy on well-maintained roads (some dirt) and we'll only be 2 hours away!

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

  • We will be in Bear, Deer, Elk, Moose, and Mountain Lion areas. [Ed has seen many a moose and deer around his land and there is a bear that likes the grease trap on his grill in the springtime!]

  • You are responsible for your own family's meals.

  • There will be no running water/RV hookups so please keep that in mind.

  • Cars are asked to be parked by the restroom in the gravel “parking lot”!
    (once unloaded)

  • There is a porta-potty-type restroom on the property. 
     

PACKING ITEMS TO REMEMBER: 

Basics include a tent or RV,  water, lantern or flashlight, sleeping bags, and food/snacks for your family. Other packing items to keep in mind are bug spray, chairs, blankets, pillows, games, cooler, camera, sunscreen, etc.  
 

THINGS TO DO:

  • Fellowship

  • Hiking (National Forest right next to the campsite!)

  • Star gazing 

  • Nature walks

  • Kayaks, canoes, or floating tubes are able to be put on Molly Lake which can be accessed by hiking through Ed's land for about a mile and a half or by driving/walking a road and over a hill to the lake.

  • You can swim in Molly Lake but it will be cold! 

  • Fishing is open at Molly Lake (we aren't 100% sure there are fish here) or at the Bellaire Lake which is down the road from the campsite. Bellaire Lake is a cold water lake that has $ 5-day pass fee and has paved sidewalks, picnic grills, and lots of fish(We saw a ton jumping when we checked it out!)

How to get there! 

  • Go north on 1-25 to Owl Canyon RD. West (Exit 281) for about 6.5 miles

  • At the round-a-bout go north towards 287 (70 E) for about 5 miles

  • At 287 go right (North) to the Forks at Livermore (74 E) about 3.5 miles

  • Stay on 74 E for about 23 miles

  • Turn south on Manhattan RD (The Potbelly Restaurant is across the street. It is a red building. )

  • After 1.8 miles turn left through the GREEN metal gates \

  • Bear right at the fork and again at the gate! 

  • Proceed to the drive and bear right to the clearing!
    [The restrooms and a gravel parking lot are about halfway up the drive. Cars can be parked here once unloaded! ]
