Located just about an hour from Denver, Wellington Lake is a convenient and exciting place for troops to camp, fish, hike, paddle, learn, and explore!
Troops may choose to book in our Scout Camp, which is a large, forested area located at the end of the campground. Alternatively, troops may choose to book sites in the campground either through our online booking system, accessed through the Book Camping Page, or by using the advanced booking service to book more than three months in advance.
Adults: $12 per person per night
Scouts: $6 per person per night
*These prices are for troops choosing to stay in the Scout Camp Area. Scouts interested in staying in the campground, should refer to the Camping Page for information and pricing.
Scout Camp Facilities
The Scout Camp consists of three camping areas each with their own sign, picnic tables, fire pit, tenting area, and parking. Up to three troops/packs may be booked on the same weekend, however scout groups will only share the Scout Camp with other scout groups. There is space for trailers and RVs in the Scout Camp; if you plan to bring a large camper, please call to confirm that we can meet your space requirements.
The area has two rustic vault outhouses (total of four stalls), which are shared among all campers staying in the area. At the back of the camp, there is a small rock amphitheater which many groups use for ceremonies and evening campfires.
Scout Camp Areas:
Eagle: up to 40 people and 12 vehicles
Bobcat: up to 30 people and 10 vehicles
Bear: up to 30 people and 10 vehicles
If your group is larger than the maximum allowed in a single area, we will assign you to two or all three areas.
*At the time of booking, we will collect a non-refundable security deposit of $100 that will be put towards the total owed for the booking. 30 days prior to the check-in date, we will charge the card on file for the remaining balance. Any changes to the number of Scouts/Adults attending will need to be submitted at least 30 days in advance.
*Scout group reservations in the Scout Camp which are cancelled 30 days or more in advance of the check-in date will result in loss of the $100 security deposit. Reservations cancelled 29 days or fewer prior to the check-in date will result in loss of the full amount paid for the booking. We do not make exceptions to the cancellation policy for weather conditions or fire bans.
*In the event that a Scout group needs to cancel their reservation due to hazardous weather conditions, it may be possible to re-schedule to another weekend, based on availability.
Rules and regulations
All guests are required to complete a liability waiver upon arrival at the lake. For Scout Groups, we strongly suggest printing the waivers ahead of time so that parents can complete the form for their child. We ask that the Troop Leader collect all waivers and turn them in a the office at check in.
