Fall Gear Review Trip To Southern Colorado

First fall review trip coming up in two weeks from today. Heading out to Southern Colorado to the Trinidad/Weston area. We will be fishing the Purgatorie River, Blue Lake, Bear Lake and any small streams we can find. We are still compiling all the gear we will be taking to review so I’ll post closer to the time we leave.

This review trip will be my first time to use the Hipcamp app for booking a place to camp. It’s a great website / app if you haven’t checked it out yet. You can also look at my post about Hipcamp last week. Hipcamp provides a way for people to find private land owners that invite campers to use their land for a very small fee. We have picked out Steve C’s El Casa Allegre in the beautiful High Country of Southern Colorado. Steve has been over the top helpful with booking and giving advice on fishing locations. Steve is also reaching out to land owners on the Purgatorie River for permission for us to fish since we are doing reviews.

Steve and his wife describe on their Hipcamp post, we have 35+ acres of beautiful pine trees and large rock outcroppings and also open meadows to camp in. We have a common open kitchen area and also a common bathhouse. Come enjoy the clean air of 8,000’ and enjoy some fishing, hiking, riding or just plain relaxing.

Sounds like a great place to me and only $20 per tent site per night and that’s for 2 people. Additional people are an extra $5 per night.

More gear information prior to leaving and reviews and pictures once we are on the water.
