IMPORTANT PARK INFORMATION FROM THE STAFF AT HIGHLINE!!
Highline Lake State Park would like for all participants planning for the 18 Hours of Fruita @ Highline to be aware of a few items that allows the park staff to keep the event at 100 teams.
The parks biggest limitation is parking and areas to camp. Please carpool to future events if at all possible. Parking by your campsite is limited so the following will be in effect as long as you don’t bring an RV. Teams bringing an RV may not bring any vehicles other than the RV in to park in the campground. Each solo and 2 person team will be limited to 1 vehicle (or one RV) and all 4 person or larger teams will be limited to 2 vehicles (or one RV). ALL ADDITIONAL VEHICLES WILL BE CHARGED A VEHICLE PASS. All 4 person teams or larger will be located in the campground and there will be at least 2 teams in every campsite. All solo and 2 person teams will be placed in the day use areas and will not have fire pits, so these teams will not be able to have camp fires. Also, no cars are allowed to park on the grass anywhere in the park; those ignoring this directive will be subject to a citation as this has been constantly abused.
Please limit the numbers of trailers and plan more tent camping to ease congestion in the campground. Each team will be limited to 1 camping trailer per team. ALSO, any team bringing trailers need to contact the park ahead of time to arrange this, as failure to do so will result in the trailer being parked outside the campground in the boat ramp parking lot. ALL additional trailers, over the one per team allotment will be placed in the boat ramp parking area based on space availability.
If you are bringing ANY type of CAMPER, RV, etc, you need to contact the park DIRECTLY with this information with your team name and size BY APRIL 20th. This is imperative for their planning-their contact information is (970) 858-7208 and email firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to another great event.
