At an altitude of 7,700 feet, Chief Hosa campground opened in 1918 as “America’s first motor-camping area.” The campground spans 58 acres within the 2,400 acres of the City of Denver’s Genesee Mountain Park, which is home to a city-owned bison herd and provides a unique opportunity to view these animals in a natural habitat.
The historic Chief Hosa lodge, built in 1918, is available for event rentals and provides beautiful mountain views of the Continental Divide to the west; Pike’s Peak to the south; Long’s Peak to the north; and plains to the east.
