A television news report says that the private Wellington Lake campground, site of Dragonfest and several other Colorado Pagan festivals, is closing for the winter and possibly permanently.
The campground was operated by a concessionaire, Castle Mountain Recreation. The lake itself is part of the Denver suburb of Thornton’s water system.
The closure would affect the nearby town of Bailey, the last stop before the lake for those coming from the Denver area.
Rumor has it that the closure is indeed permanent and that some other use is planned for the site—luxury mountain homes?
More when I hear about it.
UPDATE, October 19th: A massive yard sale of all equipment, boats, trucks, etc. from Wellington Trading Post will be held at Wellington Lake from 9-6 each day, Oct. 23-25. That sounds pretty final.
