New Hotel Concept, LOGE Camps, Is Helping People Get Outdoors and Explore
LOGE Camps is a new hotel concept that finds forgotten motels near our favorite towns and trails. It’s their mission to revitalize once-popular roadside motels that have been left to languish over the years. Through extensive renovations, they are reimagining these abandoned spaces into stylish, eco-friendly boutique hotel destinations welcoming a new era of outdoor adventurers.
Inspired by the surf, climbing and camping culture of the 70’s and the relaxed energy of a road trip with friends, LOGE (pronounced lodge) inspires people to get out and explore together. LOGE finds forgotten motels near some of the country’s most interesting towns, trails and recreation areas, and brings these properties back to life with a variety of ways to stay, including hotel rooms, hostel bunks, campsites, and RV spots. LOGE also has on-site gear rentals, fire pits, free live music and seeks to deliver a welcoming outdoor-adventure focused experience at each location.
Currently, LOGE has locations in Bend (OR), Westport (WA), Leavenworth (WA), Alta Crystal (WA), Mt. Shasta (CA) and more are slated to open in through the end of this year and into early 2024, including St. George (UT), Glacier National Park (MT), Missoula (MT), Crystal Slopeside (WA), and Taos (NM).
They just announced the opening of their latest hotel in South Fork, CO: LOGE Wolf Creek. It officially opened to visitors on July 13th and is a destination for outdoor-inspired individuals seeking access to some of Colorado’s best skiing, fly fishing, hiking, and backcountry exploration. LOGE Wolf Creek is located in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. With LOGE Wolf Creek, the group revitalized the old Wolf Creek Ski Lodge, retaining the heritage elements that made it a distinctive roadside stopover while updating the accommodations to reflect a modern experience centered around outdoor recreation.
Officially sited in the community of South Fork, CO, this new property boasts 50 rooms with full amenities and gear, including in-room Kammok hammocks, YETI coolers, BioLite headlamps, and Rumpl blankets for its guests to use. The property also features a communal fire pit, hot-tubs, and a full-service cafe (Wolf Creek Café + Bar) for meals, trail snacks, beverages, cocktails, and tap beer from Del Norte, CO based Three Barrel Brewing Company. If four walls aren’t of interest, LOGE Wolf Creek is also developing van hookups for those looking to maximize road trip budgets. EV charging stations are coming soon. When the sun goes down, LOGE Wolf Creek also hosts a slate of live music, campfire socializing, or just gazing at a star-filled night sky.
LOGE has gear on-site to open up outdoor-adventure focused experience at each location. At LOGE Wolf Creek, the gear program is focused on fly fishing, hiking, and snowshoeing. Use of gear is included in a guest’s stay.
Wolf Creek and South Fork have a thriving tourism economy, thanks in part to Rio Grande River gold medal fly fishing, backcountry and front country skiing, snowmobiling, and their emerging status as a hub for off-road cycling. Despite their apparel, these areas remain relatively uncrowded compared to other popular destinations in the state. This makes this part of the country perfect for LOGE Camps positioning as a gateway to the outdoor destinations before
they become household names.
In this spirit, LOGE is making a donation to the Colorado Trails Preservation Alliance as part of their 1% Community Giving program, supporting local organizations that advocate for more access to the outdoors.
