I come up to Camp Hale quite often and rent either ATVs or Snowmobiles from Nova Guides! It's always a blast!! Oh and don't forget rafting trips with them also.

This is a great site if you are interested in history. It is self guided with not much information. All that's really left are the foundations of the old camp. The location is beautiful. If you have time and are into history it would be worth it to stop by.

Camp Hale is a great historical park for a hike into pristine forest areas. Across from Camp Hale, hike into the Holy Cross Wilderness Area.

Primitive camping only but the views and hiking available are the best. Watch out for grazing sheep.

A group of friends and I camped at the Camp Hale Memorial Campground this July in conjunction with a rafting trip. I wasn't sure what to expect since the website said many trees had been removed due to beetle kill, but I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of remaining trees and privacy. The camp is in a beautiful part of the valley by the stream. No running water - so be sure to bring lots of your own - and no cell phone service, aahhhh relaxation. The campground hosts were very nice. The goats that live in the hills added a bit of extra charm by making strange sounds around twilight time, but after that they seemed to calm down. Don't worry, we confirmed that they were, in fact, goats. I would definitely go back.
