Here was the event description and camping layout from 2019, we had to skip 2020 due to Covid-19.


Description for 2021.

Welcome to Druids & Dragons Con 2021!

For the fourth year, we are running a, 'Camping D&D / Fantasy Table Role-Playing Convention' in Larimer County, Colorado. Based on how great it was in 2019 (skipping 2020; due to Covid-19), we are returning to Eagle campground at Carter Lake. We’ll have official D&D Adventurers League and Pathfinder for Savage Worlds Events to fill your weekend with.

Unlike most conventions which are located in hotels or game days located in stores, Druids & Dragons is located at a campground in Larimer County, Colorado. This gives us the ability to offer the con both in a unique and beautiful setting at a lower cost than many conventions.

Like 2019, we are giving more options for reserving campsites. You can get a campsite for different numbers of days depending on how many nights you want to stay. Regardless of how many nights you want to camp with us, you can play every day! Non-camping and non-gaming passes will also be available to make this a family friendly event.

Important Note:

Everyone will still be required to purchase car and/or access passes as normal to gain entrance into Carter Lake.
