National Camping Month is Coming Up!

Backpack, toasted marshmallows, campfire, counting falling stars… Rings a bell? That’s right! It’s camping time! June is the camping month and all 58 National Parks in the US are beckoning!

Leave the office behind, turn off the TV, grab your tent and family and enjoy nature’s magnificent beauty. Escaping to the outdoors for a couple of days is the best way of regaining your strength and recovering your peace of mind.

Picture yourself surrounded by nature, hiking, birding, bike ridding, whitewater rafting or fishing your lunch (Colorado license needed) during the day and relaxing, sitting around a campfire, singing songs, counting shooting stars, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate by night.

You can make all this possible at Mile Hi Rafting. We offer a wide range of outdoor activities on our Clear Creek Facility. We offer tent camping for the person that wants a total mountain adventure, only minutes from Denver. We have a variety of tent sites along Clear Creek, as well as Forested sites.

There is a large open fire pit (County Permitted) to tell stories around, a river to enjoy, and possible sightings of wildlife in its natural habitat, so bring a camera. Nothing is more exciting than hearing the wind blow outside the tent while the nocturnal critters crawl around.

Camping can be added to any of our Trips/Tours for $5 per person, children under 12 are free with adults. The following are some of our most popular overnight trips, at Mile Hi Rafting.
