Camp Details:

Brewery Creek Guard Station is situated in a densely wooded aspen grove overlooking Brewery Creek a few miles south of the Continental Divide on the northern end of the San Luis Valley, Built in 1935, the two room cabin was originally used by a forest ranger who oversaw the Poncha and Bonanza Districts of what was then called the Cochetopa National Forest. The cabin offers wonderful views of Antora Peak (13,266') and Windy Point while the creek with active beaver dams just below the cabin provides enjoyable fishing for all, (please check Colorado Division of Wildlife for fishing seasons and rules). The area offers many opportunities for hiking, 4WD adventures in summer, hunting in the fall, and cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Brewery Creek Guard Station is located 2 miles from Bonanza, a historical silver mining town that was booming in the 1880's. Today visitors to Bonanza can see old mines, historical buildings, and old time mining equipment as they follow the Bonanza Mines Off-Highway Vehicle Tour (Maps for the Bonanza Off-Highway Vehicle Tour are available at the Saguache Ranger Station). Several hiking trails are also in close proximity to the cabin, including the Elkhorn Trail and several other trails leading up to Antora and Antora Meadows. Elk, deer, and other wildlife are often seen in meadows adjacent to the cabin. Renters are required to pack out all garbage. PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. CABIN MUST BE CLEANED BEFORE LEAVING, LEAVE THE CABIN IN THE CONDITION YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIND IT! Visitors to the National Forest are responsible for knowing the rules and regulations of the forest. Travel maps for the Rio Grande National Forest can be obtained by calling the Forest Service Office in Saguache (719)655-2547 or the Forest Supervisor's Office in Monte Vista (719)852-5941.
