Mt. Evans Field StationPioneer Carnival 2008


Looking for a place to hold a retreat for your student organization that is away from the DU Campus but still part of the university? The Mt. Evans Field Station may be just what you're looking for.

The Mt. Evans Field Station of the University of Denver operates under a special use permit with the U.S. Forest Service. Two options are available for accommodating the lodging needs of groups.

The two-story "lodge" has central heating, a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms with showers, laundry room, a pantry with two standard sized refrigerators, and a large communal space with fireplace for use as a dining room, study area, and lecture/meeting room. Bed and bath linens are available upon request. The dorm may be reserved by the day or week and accommodates only one user group at a time.

A one-story cabin is available for use by individual researchers or small academic groups of 6-8 people. It features two bedrooms with bunkbeds, a large and fully equipped kitchen, central heating, a single bath with tub/shower, and a large living room with wood stove.
