ROME (AP) — Starting in January, Venice will require day-trippers to make reservations and pay a fee to visit the historic lagoon city, in a bid to better manage visitors who often far outnumber local residents. historic center, obstructing the narrow streets and busy footbridges crossing the canals.

On Friday, Venice officials unveiled new rules for day trippers, which will come into effect on January 16, 2023.

Tourists who choose not to stay overnight in hotels or other accommodation will need to register online for the day they plan to come and pay a fee. These range from 3 to 10 euros ($3.15 to $10.5) per person, depending on booking in advance and if it’s high season or if the city is very busy.


Violators face fines of up to 300 euros ($315) if caught and unable to show proof that they booked and paid with a QR code.

About four-fifths of all tourists come to Venice just for the day. In 2019, the last full year of tourism before the pandemic, some 19 million day-trippers visited Venice and provided only a fraction of the income of those staying at least one night.

Venice’s tourism commissioner dismissed any suggestion that the measure would seek to limit the number of people from outside coming to Italy’s most visited city.

“We will not talk about number cuts. We are talking about incentives and disincentives,” Simone Venturini told a press conference in Venice.

Utah Camping Reservation Tips for July 4th and Summer 2022 https://prague-hotel.co.uk/utah-camping-reservation-tips-for-july-4th-and-summer-2022/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 12:01:51 +0000 https://prague-hotel.co.uk/utah-camping-reservation-tips-for-july-4th-and-summer-2022/ A popular campsite locator app lists over 1,300 sites in Utah.

A popular campsite locator app lists over 1,300 sites in Utah. But when the 4th of July weekend was entered as the reservation date, the number of available places disappeared faster than a popsicle on a summer day. In fact, there were none. Nothing. Zipper. Zero.

Turns out it was just a temporary glitch in the app. But for any potential campers who didn’t make a reservation in January, the feeling is the same. Finding a campsite any weekend this summer, let alone a holiday weekend, seems impossible.

Good news: it’s not.

Even though 8.5 million people experienced camping for the first time in 2021, according to a June 1 report by free camping locator app The Dyrt (done in conjunction with two independent polling companies). And even the same report found that campers found it three times harder to book a site than in 2019 it can be done. Honest.

However, the penance will probably have to be paid for due to lack of planning. This will likely come in the form of no running water, electricity, toilets or – for those who don’t want to live without these luxuries – high costs. But if the goal is to spend the night in the great outdoors, it’s not out of reach, even this weekend.

“Be open to all kinds of different campsites and then you’ll have more options,” said Sarah Smith, founder of The Dyrt, a free campsite locator app. “Which I think is a really fun way to camp.”

Here are some options to consider:

Do a last minute check

The misfortune of others can lead to your luck. You never know when an injury or an emergency or the revelation of someone who doesn’t really like to commune with nature will cause them to cancel their reservation at the last minute. For this reason, it’s worth checking recreation.gov, the reservation site for all federally-run campgrounds (and some state-run campgrounds) to see what’s available. If you don’t have time to keep checking out that lakeside spot with great fishing, you can pay a little to have the Campnab app do it for you.

Other apps worth checking out include hipcamp.com and thedyrt.com, both of which offer established campsites but also deals with private landowners who want to rent space on their property.

Go in a group or glamp

Is it mandatory that camping involves setting up a tent in the dark and sleeping on a slope or on lumpy rocks? If the answer is no, and you also don’t think a basic tenet of camping is that it should be cheap, then the world is your yurt.

Although they can cost as much as a hotel room, several campgrounds still have glamping sites available. This is often a yurt, cabin, or freestanding trailer with beds, mats, and maybe your own hot shower.

The downside is that they can cost three to five times more than a place in a traditional campsite, and sometimes even more than a hotel room. The same goes for group sites. Several campgrounds around the state (try Tanner Flat or Strawberry Bay) still have reservations available for their most spacious sites, which may suit you and all of your neighbors, but also cost upwards of $100 per night. .

Be an early riser

Just for procrastinators like you, most federally run campgrounds have multiple first-come, first-served sites reserved. These can be high risk and high reward. If you can catch one, great. But if you want to keep looking for, say, something closer to the water or further away from the toilet, you risk being left out in the cold. That’s if you even get the luxury of choice. These sites fill up early and often, so it’s best to go mid-week (which is actually a great way to find camping areas anytime this summer) or at least several hours before departure if you want a chance to claim your right.

A few Utah campgrounds offering first-come, first-served sites to consider include: Anderson Cove Campground near Ogden, Gooseberry Campground in Fish Lakes National Forest, Currant Campground Creek south of Heber City and Hades Campground, located 55 miles east of Park City. .

Create your own adventure

One of the best kept camping secrets is scattered camping. On most lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management or the United States Forest Service, people are allowed to pitch tents or park their RVs. This means you can choose how far from a neighbor or the highway you want to be (although the courteous camper will look for a place that has already been used as a site). Plus, it’s free.

“If you have time and you have adventurous streaks, go out and explore a bit more and see what you can (find),” said Smith, who noted that the paid version of The Dyrt has land overlays. federal and often scattered popular site pins and reviews. “I mean, especially in a state like Utah where there’s so much public land.”

A few caveats, though, courtesy of Loyal Clark, spokesperson for the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

First, advises Clark, check campfire restrictions at Utahfireinfo.gov. If fires are allowed, make sure they are completely extinguished before you leave. To do this, pour water over the ashes and stir, pour and stir until they are cool to the touch. Also, don’t try to burn trash, like cans, plastic, or Styrofoam – wrap it up. And leave sticks in the ashes.

Second, camp at least 20 meters from rivers, streams and wetlands. Bring portable toilets or learn how and where to bury your business. This type of outing will also require you to draw or filter any water you will need.

Once you’re settled, unfold this camping chair and sit down to listen to the sounds of nature. Watch a hummingbird pass by. It should be impossible for them to support their bodies in the air with these little wings.

But, just like finding a camping spot on a holiday weekend, that is not the case.

Morgan Talty doesn’t want to be known as an “Indigenous writer,” at least not solely.

But he also doesn’t want to ignore his past, as it informs a lot of his work.

“I think the expectation is that when non-Indigenous people read about Indigenous people, they want a colorful and easy tour of the culture, something that doesn’t challenge them,” Talty said. “I knew I wanted to work against that.”

The 31-year-old, who grew up on a Penobscot Nation reservation north of Bangor, had to walk that line in his first book, ‘Night of the Living Rez,’ a collection of 12 interconnected short stories out July 5. .

The stories are fictional, but they are rooted in his experiences. Things he saw. Things that happened in his own family. Most of the characters are Native American, but they are not portrayed as stereotypes or caricatures. They are not filtered through a white lens of Western culture. They are just people.

“There really hasn’t been any depiction of the Penobscots in popular culture,” he said. “I don’t feel the weight of having to represent the entire Penobscot Nation, but at the same time, I feel tremendous pride in presenting fully realized characters, who have the same emotional journeys as everyone else.”

So far, the reviews have been strong. The New York Times and the Boston Globe each included it on lists of the best books of the summer.

“His debut collection, full of startling drama, offers a fresh take on the precarious lives of marginalized people in the 21st century,” read the Times review.

The awards came as a surprise to Talty who, in addition to writing, has three different teaching positions: at Husson University in Bangor, at the Stonecoast Masters in Creative Writing program at the University of Southern Maine (where he graduated from graduate school only a few years ago), and at Bay Mills Community College, a public tribal land school in Brimley, Michigan.

The book started with a piece he wrote in 2015, but he didn’t think of creating a cohesive collection until a few years later. The stories are told either by a young narrator, David, or by an older version of the same character, known as Dee. They explore emotionally heavy themes such as poverty, addiction and mental illness. The results of the characters are sometimes dark, but there is also a tenderness in their relationships.

“Morgan is singularly the most talented writer I have worked with,” said Cara Hoffman, an author who taught him at Stonecoast and keeps in touch with him regularly, in an email. “His work is funny, sly, a deep meditation on class and love; on the burdens that women carry; on the power and powerlessness of men. On what it means to be good in a very imperfect world.

Rick Bass, another author who mentored Talty at Stonecoast, offered similar praise.

“He was assigned to be my mentee, but he was always a peer from day one,” Bass said. “I was lucky when I worked with him at Stonecoast. Everyone knew immediately what he had.

ROAD TO WRITING

Talty was born in Connecticut but moved as a child to Indian Island, a Penobscot Nation reservation near Old Town that shares a border with a river of the same name.

Today the reserve is home to around 750 residents, but the population was closer to 500 when Talty was growing. It’s a close-knit community, and one that has struggled for decades to balance tribal sovereignty with economic stability.

All around him, stories abounded and he too discovered a love for storytelling early on.

He attended elementary and high school on Indian Island, then went to Orono High School as the reservation does not have its own high school. He was not good at it, he said, and college was not a certainty.

Unsure of his next step, Talty ended up in community college for a few years and had professors there who really encouraged him to pursue writing.

“I had a lot of support, but I’m not sure I believed it,” he said. “I still doubt it, honestly.”

Something clicked, however. With a college under his belt, Talty transferred to Dartmouth College and earned a bachelor’s degree in Native American Studies.

He returned to Maine and enrolled in the master’s program in creative writing at USM known as Stonecoast. He chose the low residency option, which is a two-year program that includes 10-day intensive residencies and six-month faculty-supervised independent writing projects. Talty worked on the stories that would become her debut.

“I read a draft of ‘Night of the Living Rez’ in 2018 when it was a tie-in storybook,” Hoffman said. “From the first sentence I knew it was brilliant, and after the first few stories it was clear that this was a book of enormous artistic and social significance and was going to be huge.

“For a student manuscript, it was extremely sophisticated. He played with timelines and narrative voice, the rhythm of sentences had a musical cadence, his ear for dialogue was impeccable.

By this time, Talty’s stories had been published in literary magazines, but selling a collection of them would be different. One of the first agents wanted to turn his stories into a novel.

“They basically said, ‘I don’t know how to sell this,'” Talty recalled.

He dropped that agent and instead signed with Rebecca Friedman, who represented Hoffman. She helped sell her stories to Tin House, a reputable small publishing house based in Portland, Oregon.

Talty said his Tin House editors didn’t force him to make the characters “more Indigenous”, and he was grateful for that.

Still, he worried about whether readers would react if his characters didn’t fit an archetype.

“At the end of the day, I think everyone feels the same emotions, so that’s something I’m looking for,” he said. “Making people feel something is the best way to connect.”

CHALLENGE LABELS

Talty said he drew inspiration from other Indigenous authors — Tommy Orange and Chelsea T. Hicks, for example — who helped make room for more disparate voices in literature.

But he also said he was careful not to lean too heavily into social or political commentary in his work, and when he did, it was subtle.

“I really love the craft of fiction, character building and setting,” he said.

Hoffman called Talty’s characters “deeply intelligent and complex”.

“He’s a master of understatement and surprise,” she said. “The setting – the Penobscot Reserve – is so richly drawn, it is its own character.”

According to Talty, to many people, Native Americans seem like a “dead culture,” even though that’s not true. Yet even a simple Google search of the term yields mostly 19th century images.

“A lot of what people know is what’s presented in popular culture,” he said.

Some topics were tricky. In writing about poverty or substance use, for example, Talty said he fears perpetuating stereotypes.

“But these are things that I experienced, things that I knew,” he said.

Bass said he doesn’t like looking at Talty’s work, or anyone else’s, comparing it to others.

“My daughter says, ‘Comparison is the thief of joy,’ and there’s a lot of wisdom in that,” he said. “What I love about Morgan’s work is that there is a softness that remains. No matter how dark or eerie the outer environment becomes, the characters have an inner light.

Talty now lives in the Levant, just northwest of Bangor, not far from Indian Island. He still has family and visits him about once a month.

His writing is increasingly noticed. He’s already working on a follow-up, and this year was among 35 writers to receive a $25,000 creative writing grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

And with all the advance praise from “Night of the Living Rez,” he hopes the book will sell.

“I didn’t grow up with a lot of money, so if that can support more work, I think that’s… well, of course it is,” he said.

In his future work, Talty expects him to continue to draw on his past, but he remains aware of being confined to a specific label.

“I think the label of Indigenous writer is both a fact of who he is and part of how publishing categorises,” Hoffman said. “He could also be called a feminist writer, a working-class writer, a pastoral writer, a comic writer. It’s clearly working in a tradition of great Native writers like Richard Van Camp, and ‘Night of the Living Rez’ is about the people of the Penobscot Nation, but I think Morgan has created a novel that transcends all labels. It is a literary work in the true sense of the term. It’s complex, clever, funny, heartbreaking, sad, beautifully written. It’s brilliant.”

Bass said he wasn’t surprised that Talty’s work was receiving praise.

“That’s what I was hoping and wishing for him, but you hope and wish for a lot of good books,” he said. “You never know what will catch the wind.”

Long Island-New York – The pandemic has been a time of great difficulty for the hospitality industry, but also a time of great innovation. Hotels and resorts have become more creative than ever to deliver exceptional guest experiences through new revenue streams. More than 500 hotels and resorts worldwide use RealTime Reservation to provide new ways for guests to interact with on-site services through a seamless system. Guests easily book activities and amenities such as spa packages, parking, poolside seating, food and beverage, recreational activities. The result is increased incremental revenue and improved customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Going even further, RealTime Reservation is working with analytics leader SAS to apply advanced analytics to the vast amounts of ancillary revenue data it collects from its pre-arrival hub. The resulting intelligence will help hoteliers develop informed ancillary revenue plans by answering questions such as; What is the optimal price for a cabin on different days and times? Which add-on experiences resonate best in the market? Should a hotel focus on high occupancy or ancillary services when staffing is an issue? And when planning a new hotel, should you devote space to spa services and poolside amenities, or develop coworking offices?

“SAS has done an amazing job providing the hospitality industry with prescriptive analytics on a global scale for decades,” says Shawn Tarter, CEO and Founder of RealTime Reservation. “Working together, we will leverage never-before-seen ancillary revenue data, providing hoteliers with comprehensive reports on where they should focus to maximize revenue through their own amenities and operations.”

“RealTime Reservation and SAS will provide ancillary revenue benchmark reports to the market,” said Chris Knothe, senior industry consultant at SAS. “Extracurricular services, including on-site amenities, and their impact on revenue is an important aspect of managing growth and maximizing profitability on the path to ‘Total Revenue Management’. RealTime Reservation is a leader in this field and together we will be able to provide insights that hotels and resorts will find especially useful and important when optimizing ancillary profit centers.

The new service offered by RealTime Reservation and powered by SAS will be called ARROW (Ancillary Revenue Reporting Optimization Worldwide) and will be officially presented at the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference in Orlando. ARROW is expected to be available later this year. You can find RealTime Reservation at booth number 947 at HITEC.

Reservation Dogs Casting Director Angelique Midthunder Knows Indigenous Talent https://prague-hotel.co.uk/reservation-dogs-casting-director-angelique-midthunder-knows-indigenous-talent/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 18:05:37 +0000 https://prague-hotel.co.uk/reservation-dogs-casting-director-angelique-midthunder-knows-indigenous-talent/ When the first set of rave reviews for “Reservation Dogs” arrived last summer, the surprise hit was hailed for its authenticity, humor and emotion.

When the first set of rave reviews for “Reservation Dogs” arrived last summer, the surprise hit was hailed for its authenticity, humor and emotion. And there wasn’t a single reviewer who failed to single out the cast of young new faces and up-and-coming native artists who bring the show to life.

“There is a myth that there are no native actors,” said series creator Sterlin Harjo. It’s a catch-22 Harjo is all too familiar with: There aren’t many native actors at Hollywood, because there is not much work for them there. “It’s like a western comes out once every year, you know? And it’s not that fun to play the same games over and over and over again.

The search for the show’s four young leads — all relative newcomers — might conjure up images of one of those epic needle-in-a-haystack casting stories that become Hollywood legend, but according to the co- Harjo creator, Taika Waititi, “[It] was one of the easiest casting processes I have ever experienced, which is very rare. There was no real discussion. We all knew instantly who we wanted.

That’s largely because while Hollywood doesn’t know where to look for Indigenous talent, for the past 15 years, casting director Angelique Midthunder has made it her life’s work. Along with fellow cast member and casting director Jennifer Schwalenberg, Midthunder created a database dedicated to Indigenous talent.

“She’s invested in the community and knows where to look and how to look,” said “Reservation Dogs” director Sydney Freeland, whose feature debut, “Drunktown’s Finest,” was also cast by Midthunder. According to Freeland, the Indigenous film community can seem relatively very small. “I feel like I know who all the actors are. I feel like I know who the talent is in front of and behind the camera. And what I love about working with Angélique is that she always finds someone I’ve never heard of or seen before.

In the video below, watch how Midthunder reunited the cast of “Reservation Dogs.”




Harjo first worked with Midthunder on the pilot for the comic book adaptation “Scalped.” Although “Scalped” didn’t go to series, the casting director impressed Harjo, who made her first call when “Reservation Dogs” was lit green. “I really wanted to work with her because I knew she would be willing to really do it the right way with me.”

Doing things the right way for Harjo and Midthunder meant traveling all over Oklahoma, visiting each of the regional reservations. Harjo unearthed talent in the halls of the hotels where the castings took place. “He was like, ‘Hey, when the kid with the blue shirt comes over, I want a little more time with him. He has a great look, a great vibe,” Midthunder recalls. Schwalenberg — who is Midthunder’s right-hand man in the office, scouting actors, making contacts and sending out auditions — said it’s not part of their philosophy to see lack of experience as a detriment. “What I’ve found in all my years of working is someone who has this thing innately, and we’ve been through it so many times, there’s just something about them and the camera loves them.”

This could be because Midthunder worked on both sides of the process, as a casting director and as an actress herself. “Right out of college, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life,” she said. She responded to a casting call placed in a newspaper looking for a dark-haired actress in her twenties who could ride a horse. Although she was hired and continued to perform here and there, she was not drawn to the stage. “I befriended a casting director and found her process to be exciting to me,” Midthunder said.

Identify a look, a personality or vibe it could potentially work for a character and a camera is one thing; knowing how to work with newbie actors, getting them comfortable in the audition process to explore and be themselves, and extrapolating if they could hold their own while filming a full season of TV is one other.

“Angelique, she definitely believed in me. I remember she encouraged me a lot. She was really great, like an aunt vibe,” said Paulina Alexis, who plays Willie Jack on the show. “I just had to play myself. I am a ground child. I must not give too much or too little. I could just be myself.

For Midthunder, this is the key to the success of the series. “Part of the magic of ‘Reservation Dogs’ is that we’re just looking for people to be themselves,” she said. “We’ve got that populated with a lot of street cast or non-actors, and that’s the case, I think, [give] it’s a very grounded, organic and believable feel.

In turn, Harjo was open to tailoring his characters to the young actors they encountered during the unique casting process. Willie Jack was originally scripted as a male character; when Alexis arrived to audition, it was for the role of Elora Danan, played on the show by Devery Jacobs. Despite reading for Elora, she was called back for Willie Jack. “I did it my way, I added my own improvisation, and my brothers were there to help me too,” Alexis said.

To underscore Midthunder’s influence, Harjo points to Lane Factor, who plays Cheese, the youngest of the “Reservation Dogs” managers. Factor had just taken his first acting class because his mother wanted him to spend less time playing video games. “The kid didn’t want to audition,” recalls Harjo, who eventually rewrote Cheese’s character to fit Factor’s personality. “His mother convinced him to come to the audition and he went all the way and was cast. It wouldn’t have happened without freedom and Angelique, how good she was and how much she believed in this process.

The more recognition his show, and especially its cast, receives, the more Harjo believes “Reservation Dogs” will change Hollywood’s view of Native stories and the availability of Native artists. But he also hopes stories like Factor’s will inspire others to see a path to the small and big screen. “Most aboriginal kids don’t even think it’s [is] an option to be on a TV show, but now they do,” Harjo said.

Alexis agrees: “Growing up, I always saw Willie Jacks all my life, but you don’t see him on TV,” she says. “It makes me feel good. It opens the door for other people to come in and tell their stories too, in their own way.

If, as Alexis and Harjo predict, “Reservation Dogs” is able to plant the seeds of a more Indigenous-inclusive Hollywood, it will be thanks to the casting director who has been plowing the ground for a decade and a half and making the fertile land for it to grow. –Kristen Lopez

Michigan government rejects off-reserve tribal casino plan in Muskegon after federal deadline extension denied https://prague-hotel.co.uk/michigan-government-rejects-off-reserve-tribal-casino-plan-in-muskegon-after-federal-deadline-extension-denied/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 14:36:36 +0000 https://prague-hotel.co.uk/michigan-government-rejects-off-reserve-tribal-casino-plan-in-muskegon-after-federal-deadline-extension-denied/ Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Wednesday denied a request by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians to build an off-reserve casino in Fruitport Township, Muskegon Countya project under discussion for almost 14 years old.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Wednesday denied a request by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians to build an off-reserve casino in Fruitport Township, Muskegon Countya project under discussion for almost 14 years old. Whitmer said she was put in an ‘impossible position’ by the US Department of the Interior, which this week refused a six-month extension to decide on the project.

In a letter to US Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, Whitmer said she was unable to support the Little River Band’s application because of the uncertainty created by another western Michigan tribe, the Grand River Band of Ottawa Indians, which is seeking federal recognition from the Department of Interior. Should he get this recognition, the Grand River Band may wish to open their own casino in the same area as the Little River Band.

The Department of the Interior must first decide whether to grant federal recognition to the neighboring bands of the Grand River of the Ottawa Indians. It is essential to have this information before making an informed decision. Without this information, I am unable to agree at this time and remain disappointed with the Department’s lack of flexibility in this process,” Whitmer said.

The lack of information, Wretchen explained, put her “in an impossible position.” “Despite my best efforts to obtain responses from the DOI regarding the Grand River Bands’ pending application for recognition, I am left without information critical to my decision on the two-part determination of the Little River Band,” it said. she declared.

Currently operating a casino in Manistee, Little River Band’s plans call for a $180 million development on the site of the former Great Lakes Down horse racing facility. The property would include a 149,000 square foot casino and a 220-room hotel on 60 acres in Fruitport Township. The governor’s decision was a blow to the Little River Tribe and Muskegon area officials who have defended the casino for years.

I realize that this denial is disappointing to the Little River Band and local community supporters, and I appreciate the considerable time and investment that has gone into this proposal.. My commitment to creating well-paying jobs and economic development in Muskegon is unwavering, and I will stand with anyone,” Whitmer wrote.

Since the proposed casino was not on tribal land, it required federal and state approval. The U.S. Department of the Interior gave its approval to the Little River Tribe in December 2020, saying the casino would be “in the best interest of the tribe” and “would not be detrimental” to the community. The Little River Tribe says 42% of its members live in the Muskegon area.

Fruitport Township Supervisor Todd Dunham said the governor’s decision was “so discouraging” because the project had been under discussion for 14 years.. “It would have helped the whole west side here, everyone had these new developments and developers because of the possibility of this casino coming, and now it’s all gone.”

Meanwhile, Larry Romanelli, elected ogema of the Little River Band, said tribal members were “absolutely devastated” by Whitmer’s lack of endorsement.. “This project would have created and supported 3,000 jobs for tribal members and families in the community, while providing funds for health care and housing,” he said in a statement. “Words cannot express how grateful we are for the support of our community and how disappointed we feel for them.”

Even though the proposed casino was backed by broad local support, other Michigan casinos objected to off-booking gaming. Detroit City Council and the Wayne County Board of Commissioners last year issued resolutions opposing efforts to expand off-reserve gaming in the state.

The State House also approved a resolution in February 2021, opposing the expansion of off-reservation gaming that is not part of tribal, state, and U.S. Department of the Interior-approved gaming pacts.

The project was first discussed in 2008, when the tribe purchased the 87-acre Great Lakes Downs property. After the U.S. Department of the Interior gave the Little River Tribe its approval in 2020, Whitmer was given a year to come to terms with the decision. Whitmer received a six-month extension to make his decision in December 2021but was later denied a second extension, forcing him to make a final decision by June 16.

Whitmer, in her letter to Haaland, said she would “would welcome the opportunity to review” the Little River Band’s casino application once the Department of the Interior decided on the Grand River Band’s application for recognition.

The old adage “know before you go” takes on new and heightened meaning in the Colorado wilderness.

Before we go camping, we need to know the fire restrictions, to begin with. These are becoming more widespread amid this mega-drought and amid waves of new arrivals. The pandemic marked a period of larger crowds across the mountains – and heightened campfire anxiety leading to greater burns.

With these mobs come new land management strategies. Of course, we still have our secret places. But these places have become and are becoming more uncovered, putting more and more pressure on the agencies tasked with maintaining the forest with short-term federal funds.

The result: a shift from dispersed to designated. Campsites that were once free now require fees and, in some cases, reservations made days or weeks in advance on Recreation.gov.

So maybe it’s time to learn to get along with our camping neighbors, time to enjoy our serviced campsites. Here are a few :

Amphitheater Campground: Why book a hotel room in Ouray if you can find a place here within 2 miles of the town’s shops, restaurants and hot springs?

The “amphitheater” is natural, formed by a volcanic explosion in ancient times from the San Juan Mountains. After the campground opens in mid-June, limited sites are available to enter without an appointment. Better to book. $24 for the night.

Boulders Campground: It’s a familiar place to people around Colorado Springs. Usually open in late May, this is a first-come, first-served campground. Good luck snagging one of the 17 sites, especially on weekends.

The campground is a must-see outside of Divide, a getaway from town and the base of the trail of the same name that leads to the Devil’s Playground Trail, which climbs to the top of Pikes Peak. $20 for the night.

Ridged mound drainage basins

Last year, Crested Butte became a prime example of the camping revolution. Across the valley, many sites have been cleared and others made official and marked for drivers on the roads to Slate River and Washington Gulch, for example. Things have also changed along the Kebler Pass. What has not changed: the breathtaking landscapes.

If you are driving, managers recommend having backup plans in case the sites are full. Or you can make reservations at several campgrounds, like Lake Irwin along Kebler Pass or Oh Be Joyful along the Slate River.

Davenport Campground: In southern Colorado, closest to Rye and Beulah, the big bonus here is history. You can say you camped in what is believed to be the first US Forest Service campground as we know it. Davenport was rebuilt the way Arthur Carhart originally designed it in 1919 – the plan that would inspire recreation plans across the country.

Accessible by road from Lake Isabel, as well as by hiking via the Carhart and Squirrel Creek trails from Pueblo Mountain Park. Without appointment and reservations, $24 for the night.

McInnis Canyons: At 122,300 acres, the sheer size of this National Conservation Area west of Grand Junction allows for all to expand. It’s a rugged, dry patchwork of sandstone canyons, arches and spires that tends to be hot in the summer. A few summers ago, we at least imagined the cool Colorado River in sight of the Knowles Overlook Campground.

As at Crested Butte, the motto here is “designated dispersed”. First-come, first-served at marked sites off Interstate 70 along the popular Kokopelli Trail.

Peaceful Valley and Camp Dick Campgrounds: These two sister lands are located in a glacial valley outside of Allenspark, in a dreamlike landscape intertwined by Middle Saint Vrain Creek and framed by the Indian Peaks. It’s a meeting place for anglers, hikers and mountain bikers, a combination that makes the sites very popular. Forty-one sites at Camp Dick, a mix of walk-in and booked. Ditto for the 17 sites of Peaceful Valley. Fees start at $25.

Peak One and Pine Cove Campgrounds: For their amenities and their proximity to the city, they are suitable for the whole family. They’re based on the Frisco Peninsula, where you can choose your adventures on the trails or on the water at Dillon Reservoir.

Peak One and Pine Cove combine to form 136 sites that can accommodate tents, caravans and motorhomes. First come, first served at Pine Cove, reservations from $22 at Peak One.

Pinon Flats Campground: Just as the sight of North America’s largest dune field is unforgettable, so is a night at its base. You will understand why the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has a rare international dark sky classification.

If you’re struggling to book a spot at Piñon Flats, the views are also great from campsites along the primitive 4WD Medano Pass. Other options are Oasis Campground, just outside the park entrance, and Zapata Falls Campground, 11 miles south.

Red Feather Lakes Campgrounds

You don’t hear much about Red Feather Lakes around Denver and the southern Front Range, but you definitely hear about them in the northern parts. It’s a quaint community of cabins and waters popular for boating and fishing — and campsites fill up fast. Check out Dowdy Lake, Bellaire Lake and West Lake Campgrounds. Fees start at $24.

Trinity Lake: In 2020, Colorado Parks and Wildlife began requiring reservations for camping at all state parks. Luckily, there are some underrated gems that still make reservations fairly available. That includes this lake on the southern border of the state.

On our last visit, we settled into the South Shore Campground, enjoying the shimmering reflection of Fishers Peak. Carpios Ridge Campground is another option, located near trails exploring the park’s plots on land.

The old adage “know before you go” takes on new and heightened meaning in the Colorado wilderness.

Before we go camping, we need to know the fire restrictions, to begin with. These are becoming more widespread amid this mega-drought and amid waves of new arrivals. The pandemic marked a period of larger crowds across the mountains – and heightened campfire anxiety leading to greater burns.

With these mobs come new land management strategies. Of course, we still have our secret places. But these places have become and are becoming more uncovered, putting more and more pressure on the agencies tasked with maintaining the forest with short-term federal funds.

The result: a shift from dispersed to designated. Campsites that were once free now require fees and, in some cases, reservations made days or weeks in advance on Recreation.gov.

So maybe it’s time to learn to get along with our camping neighbors, time to enjoy our serviced campsites. Here are a few :

Amphitheater Campground

Why book a hotel room in Ouray if you can find a place here within 2 miles of the town’s shops, restaurants and hot springs?

The “amphitheater” is natural, formed by a volcanic explosion in ancient times from the San Juan Mountains. After the campground opens in mid-June, limited sites are available to enter without an appointment. Better to book. $24 for the night.

Boulders Campground

It’s a familiar place to people around Colorado Springs. Usually open in late May, this is a first-come, first-served campground. Good luck snagging one of the 17 sites, especially on weekends.

The campground is a must-see outside of Divide, a getaway from town and the base of the trail of the same name that leads to the Devil’s Playground Trail, which climbs to the top of Pikes Peak. $20 for the night.

The Washington Gulch area near Crested Butte is among the areas with new rules on camping.

Last year, Crested Butte became a prime example of the camping revolution. Across the valley, many sites have been cleared and others made official and marked for drivers on the roads to Slate River and Washington Gulch, for example. Things have also changed along the Kebler Pass. What has not changed: the breathtaking landscapes.

If you are driving, managers recommend having backup plans in case the sites are full. Or you can make reservations at several campgrounds, like Lake Irwin along Kebler Pass or Oh Be Joyful along the Slate River.

Campers in what has been designated the Davenport Group in the mountains west of Pueblo. The Forest Service’s Davenport Campground remains, west of what was considered the agency’s first campground, envisioned between 1919 and 1920.
