Let's weeknight camp Thursday night at the Sawmill campground at White Ranch! It's close enough (25 minutes from downtown Golden) that it's possible to wake up and head to work more or less on time Friday, and smelling like campfire. ;-)

The sites are free. The park provides firewood, non-potable water to put out the fire, fire rings, and picnic tables. There is a vault toilet, and there are bear boxes for food storage.

The sites are a 1-1.25 mile hike from the trailhead. I use my backpacking pack, but I've seen people carry their stuff without an overnight pack if they don't have one. If you come late and don't know how to get to the site, we can come find you! These sites are amazing, considering how close they are to Denver. 

What to bring
sleeping bag
sleeping pad
Any other camping gear you need

I'll head up there at some point on Thursday early evening. I will let you know the site number once I reserve the site, so you can meet us up there any time.
