Summer Days at Pingree Park

June 6, 2011

Pingree Park - Colorado State University’s Mountain Campus

Summer Days at Pingree for faculty, staff, and alumni

Pingree Park is offering a special opportunity for faculty, staff and CSU alumni to come and experience the beautiful mountain setting of Pingree Park.

Accommodations are available nightly between July 1 and July 10. Families and guests are welcome to accompany CSU faculty, staff and alumni members. A registration form for “Summer Days at Pingree” is located on the Pingree Park home page as well as photographs, information, and maps of the area.

Located north of Rocky Mountain National Park at 9,000 feet, the Pingree Park Campus has been the field-session site for forestry and natural resources programs since 1916. Before the arrival of the University, the Koenig and Ramsey families occupied the Pingree Valley. Thanks to CSU's preservation efforts, the cabins and other buildings remain intact today.

In 1975, CSU built a conference center and began hosting retreats and workshops. Pingree provides facilities for conferences and classes in dorms and cabins. In addition to CSU groups, Pingree hosts student groups from CU, UNC, DU, and out-of-state universities. Conferences from the private sector also use the campus throughout the season. In the fall, Pingree hosts 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.
