The Pikes Peak Council acquired this beautiful 200 acre ranch on the outskirts of Woodland Park, CO in 2008.  It was part of the estate of Leonard Johnson Jr.  It is available for use by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Crews.  The Ranch is only 35 minutes from Colorado Springs, you’ll think you were a hundred miles away!

Facilities

We have multiple backpacking campsites available along the ridge at the west boundary for those desiring a more rustic experience.  We have several areas near the parking lot and no hiking required.  This option is great for new Scout 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.  There are no drive-up campsites.

We recently added a new 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.

Scouts using the property will be must take everything home with them.  LEAVE NO TRACE is the rule.  There is no potable water on the property, so you must bring your own drinking water. We have restrooms or portable toilets available April through October on the property for campers to use. 

There is no cell service in the lower camp area, however, there is a land-line phone that can be used for emergencies in the Pavilion, Training Building and Homestead cabin.

Glen Aspen Ranch phone is attended on weekends during camping season. It can be used in case of emergency to contact a unit staying at Glen Aspen Ranch. An answering machine will record messages if unattended. The phone number Glen Aspen Ranch number is 719-687-3630 and the address is 11050 Loy Creek Road, Woodland Park, CO.

Animals on Campouts

Q. Can we bring animals or pets on campouts?

A. No, animals or pets are not part of tours or activities in Scouting. This does not preclude merit badge programs where specific animals are part of the merit badge (Horsemanship, Mammal Study, Reptile and Amphibian Study, etc.). The prefaceExternal Link to the Guide to Safe Scouting states that, “In situations not specifically covered in this guide, activity planners should evaluate the risk or potential risk of harm, and respond with action plans based on common sense, community standards, the Boy Scout motto, and safety policies and practices commonly prescribed for the activity by experienced providers and practitioners.”

If you bring a pet/dog to Glen Aspen Ranch, you will be asked to remove the animal and take it back home.

 

Fees and Reservations

Reservations for camping should be made by completing and turning in the Glen Aspen Ranch Reservation Request Form  plus any facility rental fees to the Council office.  The Campmaster will collect the remaining balance of camper fees at Glen Aspen.

All Facility Rental fees must be paid at the time of reservation due to the high demand for these facilities. The Training Building and Pavilion are not intended for overnight sleeping.
