Pingree Park
Less than three hours from Denver International Airport (DIA) and 53 miles west of Fort Collins lies a secluded valley by the mountains of the Mummy Range, Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt Forest, and the Comanche Peak Wilderness Area: The Pingree Park Campus. A place to escape to high clear streams, alpine wild flowers, and lodgepole forest pines. Pingree Park is Colorado State's unique mountain campus and conference center.

At an altitude of 9,000 feet (2,750m), Pingree Park provides cool summer days perfect for hiking, trout fishing, or other outdoor activities. Trails leaving from the central campus invite conference visitors to take a leisurely half-hour walk or a rigorous all-day climb up a nearby peak. Most important, a conference held at Pingree Park removes your group from the hectic pace and clamor of urban life. The lack of distractions allows participants to focus all their attention on meeting topics.


Pingree Park Campus
The Pingree Park Campus offers a variety of conference housing facilities. Nestled between pines and aspen groves, seven modern and newly built cabins encircle the Conference Center's main lodge. All rooms in the conference center cabins contain three single beds, private bathrooms with showers, and are heated with electricity. Central lounges in every cabin allow for informal meetings or relaxation. The separate cabins make it possible to serve groups ranging from eight to 120 participants.

In addition to the Conference Center cabins, there are two dormitory-style buildings and 24 rustic cabins. These accommodations offer economical rates. North Dorm and South Dorm hold a combined total of 80 people; the rustic cabins sleep four people each.

The Conference Center Lodge contains two large meeting rooms. The Fireplace Lounge is an informal meeting space with an impressive natural rock fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and dramatic view of the Mummy Range. The Lodge Classroom, a more traditional meeting space, can seat as many as 200 people. The room can also be setup with tables for board meetings, workshops, or banquets. A small kitchen adjacent to the classroom is used for coffee breaks and barbecues.

Other conference facilities include a variety of smaller modern or rustic classrooms as well as an outdoor amphitheater for presentations or evening slide shows.

Along with our meeting rooms, Pingree Park staff will provide clients with professional coordination of every conference detail from registration through evaluation. Services include transportation arrangements, use and facilitation of Pingree Park Team-Building Course, field trips, and clerical support.


Fine Food to Fill a Mountain Appetite
Since the days when lumberjack George Pingree hired the best cook in the territory to feed his lodging camp, Pingree Park is noted for its excellent food. "Fine food to fill a mountain appetite" is our motto. Pingree Park's professional food service staff takes pride in preparing nutritious meals. All meals are served cafeteria style with a choice of entrees and beverages, second helpings are available for most selections. Lunches and dinners always include a salad bar and an array of desserts completes the menu.

Plans can be made for steak or trout cookouts, candlelight banquets, and other special meals including Mexican and Italian menus. Snacks for coffee and cocktails can be provided with advance notice. Sack lunches can be requested for field trips and hikes.
