Immerse yourself in the wilderness of the Rockies on an exciting camping trip. You will experience the true beauty of the national park whilst enjoying a real backcountry adventure.
All the camps are a similar set-up and include simple luxuries such as washstands and hot water, filtered drinking water, an evening campfire, a spacious kitchen tent, ‘A’ frame canvas tents with wooden platforms for your accommodation and also rail corrals to keep the horses secure overnight. Nearby you will find fresh, clean rivers which are a treat for plucky swimmers and fisherman (please bring your rod if you’d like to fish!).
Each camp is surrounded by an electric fence to keep you safe from curious wildlife. There is a live-in cook who prepares your hearty camp meals, which are cooked and served in the kitchen tent. This tent warms up thanks to a wood-burning stove and there is plenty of seating space for socialising after dinner. Flints Park Camp even offers a hot shower!
During this ride you may explore a variety of tranquil areas including Rainbow, Sawback or Cuthead Lakes; breathtaking views of 40 Mile Summit, Cuthead View Point or Rainbow Ridge; wide, open valleys on the passes of Elk Lake or 40 Mile Summit plus the incredible beauty of the Dormer, Block and Mystic Valleys. There’s a historic elk corral and a wild goat trap which will hopefully allow you to spot and photograph some of the wildlife seen in the area: elk, deer, bighorn sheep, goats, eagles and perhaps even a bear or timber wolf. The rides are very casual with regular breaks and leisurely lunches, those being eaten on the trail. There is often the time for a post-lunch siesta or some exploring or fishing.
