A Mountain Campus for all of CSU

Located north of Rocky Mountain National Park at 9,000 feet, the Pingree Park Mountain Campus has been the academic field-session site for the Warner College of Natural Resources since 1916. Before the arrival of the University, the Koenig and Ramsey families occupied the Pingree Valley. Thanks to the preservation efforts of CSU, their cabins and other buildings remain intact today.

In 1975, CSU built a conference center and began hosting retreats and workshops. As part of Housing and Dining Services, Pingree Park provides facilities for conferences and classes in dorms and cabins.

In addition to CSU departmental groups, Pingree Park hosts a wide variety of groups from youth adventure camps to life-long learning programs. Conferences from the private sector also use the campus throughout the season. In the fall, Pingree Park hosts several of the Poudre School District “Eco-Week” environmental science programs.

Diverse wildlife claims the Pingree Valley as their home. Frequent residents include hummingbirds, deer, badger, and moose. Hiking trails leave from campus and climb above tree line to 12,000 foot peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park that comprise the southern skyline at Pingree Park.
