About Us

Welcome to Tripoli Colorado, where High Power Rocketry begins at 8,800 feet above sea level!

White buffalo at Hartsel launch siteAs Prefecture #11, Tripoli-Colorado is one of the oldest prefectures of the Tripoli Rocketry Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and operation of non-professional high power rocketry. Host of LDRS VI, VII, VIII, IX, and XVI, the annual national Tripoli launch and meeting, Tripoli Colorado sets the standards with their impeccable safety record and vast pool of rocketry experience.

Tripoli Colorado operates as a Colorado Nonprofit Corporation, and has regularly scheduled launches sanctioned under the Tripoli Rocketry Association. The Tripoli Colorado launch site is located approximately two hours Southwest of Denver on a private buffalo ranch near Hartsel, Colorado in South Park. Our waiver, with launch windows, allows flights to 14,200 feet AGL (23,000 feet MSL).

We have a group of dedicated flyers and we'd love to have you join us. Our group is known for its team spirit and cooperation among members and visitors alike. We know how much time you put into your projects and we'll do everything we can to help your flight succeed.

Please join us for our first launch of the season, which will be on Sunday April 28th. 
 
I will be on site at 7 am and we can launch as soon as we are set up and ready.
 
Waiver opens at 8 am to 7,000 ft. AGL and windows can be called in to 14,200 ft AGL. Please let me know if you need a window when you arrive so we can coordinate windows with the FAA. 
 
As always there is no camping on site, no driving off of roads, and close the gate behind you.
