Glen Aspen Ranch is a beautiful 200 acres ranch located on the outskirts of Woodland Park, CO.  Pikes Peak Council acquired the property in 2008 from the estate of Leonard Johnson Jr. a Korea War Veteran and long-time Postal Worker in Colorado Springs.  Glen Aspen Ranch is only 35 minutes from Colorado Springs, you’ll think you were a hundred miles away!

History

The ranch has a very interesting history dating back to the 1890s and the early homesteaders in the Woodland Park area.  Karl Fohn, General Palmers personal gardener, owned the property for several years.  If you would like to read more about our Ranch history, click the link to read the history prepared by our very own Carlos Perez, Campmaster.  HERE

Facilities

We have a variety of campsites for our campers.  Backpacking campsites are available along the ridge at the western boundary for those desiring a more rustic experience.  We have several areas near the parking lot and no hiking is required.  These sites are great for new Scout’s first campout.  We also have a 300 sq ft Training Building which is equipped with electricity, stove, refrigerator, microwave oven and coffeemaker for unit planning / training sessions at the Glen Aspen Ranch.  We also have a spacious 2,400 sq ft enclosed pavilion available for rent for large groups. We have folding banquet tables and chair for use in the Pavilion.  We also have 8 picnic tables that can be used by any group staying at Glen Aspen.  Click this link to see photos and brief description of the buildings and campsites.  HERE
