Meet Your Hosts

Greg and Peri Ann Query

Welcome to Estes Park!

We've been happy campers for a long time.  Much of our family camping experiences have been in Wisconsin.  When our children became travel worthy, we made several multi-state trips to national parks. Greg was in scouting and has always loved life outdoors   Peri studied outdoor recreation and park administration in college, camped as a child with her family, and has worked in a variety of state, federal and municipal park settings.

Daugther, Jamie. worked at O'Connells Jellystone campground for two years. In 2016, she learned about campground management from the owner of Smokey Hollow Campground in Wisconsin. Jamie enjoys acting, playing Xbox, reading, bicycling, woodworking, and just being outdoors. Mark, 19, enjoys camping, Minecraft, riding bicycles, swimming, fishing, doing puzzles and eating pizza.  We are excited about our new life in Estes Park, Colorado.   Rocky Mountain National Park offers water, woods, and hills to explore for many years!
