About This Campground

Camp Hale was the center of mountain and winter warfare training developed by the United States Army during World War II. The camp was located here because of the site's natural features and ready access. When the war broke out this valley was served by both a federal highway and the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Moreover, the large open valley had adequate room for the camp including more than 1,000 buildings and structures as well as parade grounds, weapons ranges, and other spaces needed by the Army. There is a self-guided tour with 10 stops that take you in a loop around Camp Hale. Each stop has an interpretive sign with history of that area. Their is a larger interpretive site just off Highway 24 marked by stone pillars at the main entrance to Camp Hale about 17 miles south of the intersection of I-70 and Hwy 24.
