Ummmmmm I'm getting a little discouraged about attending westfest.

The campground has 4 cabins and 9 tent sites??All the sites are filled up and it's only April.

The tent sites are probably listed as full since we have them all reserved for WF. My guess is there is plenty of tent space still available. As far as cabins is concerned, those usually go quick during WF.

^^What Sgt and Pablo siad.

I am pretty sure all the Cabins, Yurts etc are booked, but there is PLENTY of tent space (it shows booked because I reserved it all) and we can use the entire hill for tent camping. When you register for Westfest+Camping -HERE- you get the tent site for the 9th and 10th. If you can I would suggest coming in the 8th though and just getting a tent spot directly from Arrowhead Point for one night.

Ok, thats sounds better. I was looking at the CG map and did not want to pitch a tent next to a full hook up site.

Thanks

Great I hope you guys can make it.

Delta21, the camping hill is very segregated from the "regular" RV portion of the camping ground and it will only be Westfest attendees on Friday and Saturday nights, Im not sure if that is good or bad (the way its going a lot of the RV spot will be for Westfest too!!)

I like being "segregated". It makes me feel a little inadequate when i have to pitch a 2 person backpackers tent next to a tour bus.

Just put in my order for Westfest and two nights of camping. What are the chances of nabbing a tent site if I show up a couple nights early?

Welcome! I got you down.

Call the campground and tell them you are registered for Westfest but want a tent spot for how ever many additional nights besides Friday and Saturday. Then you can stay in the same tent spot every night, including during Westfest. The number for arrowhead point is:719-395-2323.

Thanks and let me know if you need anything,
Ben

Free Shuttle for WF

A big thanks to Lenny at Deerhammer Distilling Company for setting this up and especially to American Adventure Expeditions who will be providing a FREE shuttle from Arrowhead to Downtown Buena Vista on Friday night.


American Adventure Expeditions has donated a shuttle so all Westfest attendies can safely get into downtown BV for the specials and VIP events at Deerhammer Distilling, as well as enjoying the other local restaurants and bars, and then back to Arrowhead Point. The shuttle will most likely be running from 3pm-9pm on Friday with regular pickups and drop offs






**Note: All this is donated and free but please, please tip the shuttle driver


American Adventure Expeditions is also offering 10% off any rafting trip for Westfest peps. This may be the perfect way to get the family or S.O. to come along so they can have a blast running Browns Canyon while you're out riding

They also have Zipline, Mountain Bike and ATV tours, as well as tours of Royal Gorge

This event looks really attractive, but I have to get my EXC to the site from Venice, CA. I'm going to have to fly into Denver and rent a car due to my tight schedule. If anyone's willing to haul my bike there and back I'd make it worth their while, for sure.

PM me please if you can help me out.
