This was a great place to stay for quiet and beauty. There's a five mile diet road to get back there but the whole ride is beautiful and will get you in the mood. While they don't have rv hookups they do have water spigots to get water at and there is a dump station. Generators can be used from... More

We enjoyed an easy hike around the lake, it was a good beginning to our hiking adventures. We tried to complete the pass above the lake but it was still closed due to weather. Once we hiked it I got my mountain bike and repeated the trail on that. Although not challenging it was nice to get my feet wet.

Sylvan Lake is, in my humble opinion, one of the best kept secrets in Colorado. My family decided to take a weekend camping trip out there, without knowing much about it other than that we found it on a list of state parks, it looked like reasonable drive, and seemed relatively low-key. This lake is so serene, pristine, and the... More

We stayed last minute on an overnight on way from Denver to grand junction a beautiful place!! The only reason I didn't rate it excellent is because there aren't any hookups and the road coming in is not paved and rough. We took hike around lake it's just wonderful

This has been a family tradition every summer for years since we found it. The lake is great fun for the kids taking out the rental paddle boats or canoe. We attempt to fish, have never caught anything. The hiking is wonderful one of our favorite spots in Colorado.

Booked a stay at Fisherman's Paradise sight 35. Most people are considerate about using there generators. Others, not so much. Our neighbors started there generator at 6:30 to 7:00 every morning and ran it continuously. The policy at Sylvan is 6:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night. Give me break! If you don't want peace and quiet, stay home.... More

Just went on a trip from June 7 - 14 and it was great. There were 14 of us that went and we rented cabins 6, 7, & 8. I'm so glad we got these because the one by the lake had so many mosquitos you could be eaten alive lol. Up on the hill where we were there really... More

I stayed in a camping cabin at Sylvan Lake State Park. The cabin is 2 rooms (some are a single room) with the front room having a table and chairs, propane heater, chairs, and some shelves for storage. The other room is a bedroom, with three single beds and a double bed. The cabins (except cabin #1) do not have... More

On the first day of fall, my girlfriend and I spent a night camping at Sylvan Lake. When we arrived (a 3 hour journey from Colorado Springs), we were greeted by an amazing scene. Storm clouds surrounded the park and the aspens were just starting to turn. Our trip was marred by a steady down pour and a cold night... More

We came at the wrong time of the year! It was right after a snow storm, and we did not come with snowshoes and proper snow-apparel! So, we were able to walk across the frozen water a little bit, but there wasn't much else for us to do due to the snow. We basically drove the road of the park... More
