I have been camping at Wellington Lake since it re-opened. My dog and i love it up there. However, with new ownership this year the prices went up even higher. I had a horrible experience on September 26th. The previous night I looked up online to see if I should reserve a spot but there were so many available on... More

The campsite was nice, the location was really nice (only being 45 minutes west of Denver), but the facilities were disgusting. The campsite offers one fresh water spigot and you have to drive to get to it. The restrooms are plentiful, but they appear to have lacked any maintenance since they were installed. Unfortunately having a 5 year old daughter... More

It doesn't seem like the management does much at all to enforce rules but if you like canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding, and or fishing this is a great place to go. It may be a little overpriced, but you do have to keep in mind that it is a fully stocked private lake so you don't need fishing licenses to... More

We've visited Castle Mountain 4 times in the last 2-3 years; a couple of times with Boy Scouts groups and a couple of times on our own, and like other reviewers have said, yes, it's overpriced for what you get (no water or electrical hook-ups at the site, poorly maintained outhouses, etc.), but it's close to Denver and a beautiful...

I've been to many campgrounds/rec areas, not only in Colorado. Here's my take on this one: High points: * Beautiful view: lake, mountains, woods - nice! * Many camp sites are right at the water * large camp sites * nice hiking trails * the lake is great for fishing, boating or any other water activities Low points: * very...

Castle Mountain Recreation (aka Wellington Lake / Reservoir) is somewhat remote given that the roads that lead to it are dirt and fairly washboard enhanced which compels one to take in the scenery. Ensure that you bring all that you’ll need as the nearest store is ~ 1hr away. Once you’ve arrived the check in is painless. On a popular... More
