A proposed campground west of Berthoud, Colo., is facing backlash from residents in the area. according to the Berthoud Weekly Surveyor.
The proposal calls for a 373-site park suitable for both tent camping, as well as RVs, about one mile west of the County Road 23 and County Road 4 intersection.
The proposal calls for the campground to be built out to full capacity in five phases with 120 sites in phase one, 50 in phase two, 68 in phase three, 39 in phase four and 96 in phase give. The plan also includes the construction of three buildings — a 2,000 to 5,000-square-foot greeting and check-in office that includes showers and a laundry facility, a 3,000-square-foot maintenance building and a 6,000-square-foot barn, all to be built during phase one of the project.
Restrooms will be, according to the county planning documents, “mobile and placed for easy access as needed.”
The project name is Colorado Base Camp and the developer is David P. Lee, of Longmont, and the owners of the tract of land on which the campground will be built are listed in county records as Hui-You Huang and Pao-Chin Huang, also of Longmont. The Larimer County Planning website states 9% of the approval process is completed, an additional 17% is in progress and the remaining 73% has not started.
