Camp Pena Colorado
« on: October 09, 2015, 11:37:37 AM »
Looking for some info on Fort or Camp Pena Colorado in Marathon. It's also called Post Park. Has anyone visited this site? Just wondering if it's worth a look next time I'm out there. The history is interesting.

It's a nice county park now. Great place for a picnic.

Been there several times as we usually stay in Marathon on our first night. As Flash says, its a nice "city park" for a picnic under the trees. We usually check it out early - first light- its a good birding spot. A nice pond helps attract them I guess. The drive there from Marathon, about 5 miles, is as nice as the park - scenery, wildlife and birds. Its worth an hour or so if your in Marathon.
