Where to Find Us

Our Location


Located in the beautiful mountains of western Colorado, Camp West is a fitting location for summer retreats and camps.

Our 52-acre facility is nestled in the valley of the Anthracite creek, in full view of the majestic Ragged mountains. 

Find us off HWY 133 at the 3-1/2 mile marker on County Road 12 (Kebler Pass). We are 25 miles West of Crested Butte, 20 miles East of Paonia, and 45 miles South of Carbondale (Glenwood Springs, Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley).

Our Pricing

We are blessed to be able to provide a fully equipped mountain location at exceptionally low pricing!

We are offering SPECIAL pricing in 2018 for the do-it-yourself crowd!  This special facility rental option is available to a limited number of individuals and groups during the summer months. We typically open in May and close in September. The camp is rented at a predetermined fee. We ask that each "do-it-yourself" group be responsible for bringing their own staff, bedding, toiletries, cleaning supplies, cooking items, plates, cups, spices and service. The camp will provide the facility and your group provides the rest! The renting group is required to leave the camp facility as clean (or better) than they found it upon arrival.*

"Pack-it-in/Pack-it-out. Leave-no-trace. Bring-your-own-staff. Pay-your-own-way.​"
