We camped at the Forest Service Campground and it is basic no electricity and there are only about 9 sites on the East end of the lake...we always go on a Thurs evening to be sure we get a spot or show up early Fri am for the weekend as it is popular. We always plan on eating over at... More

Our friends asked us to come with them to Sweetwater Lake Resort and we were glad did. The lake is simply beautiful and peaceful. The staff were all so friendly and kind. They accommodated my gluten free diet by toasting my own bread and waffles at meals and were careful with sauces and seasonings.The restaurant served great food and pies.... More

We had a great stay at Sweetwater Resort. Part of our group stayed in a cabin (Clayton) and the others stayed in the motel rooms. The cabin and rooms are all fairly old-school (décor, furnishings, etc.) but beds were comfortable and water was hot. This wouldn’t meet your expectations if you’re looking for a cookie-cutter hotel/cabins, but if you’re looking... More

My girlfriends drug me camping out to Sweetwater. We did not stay at the cabins, but definitely did the drive by....cause we were lost. Cabins looked quaint and not warranting the price. But they are a seasonal business and have to make their money during the brief time of the year. We were there in June, lake was still way... More

We wanted to get away from Denver for a couple of days. My husband found this "resort" online. We made the mistake of booking before we looked at TripAdvisor. We knew it was a rustic cabin, and we weren't expecting a 4-star experience. We enjoy small quaint rustic cabins and were looking forward to our trip. However, when we arrived... More

We arrived with 14 people, 12 horses and 8 dogs! The "girls" shared a big cabin, couples shared other cabins, my husband and I stayed in the motel, so we experienced most of the accommodations. They are a combination of old, dated and charming, pretty old ranch Colorado. We had a great group dinner at the restaurant (cafe) with an... More

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, go somewhere else. However, if you're traveling to see Colorado for what it really is, stay here. While the accomodations are a bit "dated", they are perfectly suitable. The real experience here is the wildlife. While staying, we were fortunate to see plenty of bear, hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, etc. and rowing on... More

If anyone has traveled I-70 by Dotsero you know how desolate this area is. Approxminately 17 North is this wonderful little resort. It's dog friendly, clean, owners are very friendly and relaxed. It has a motel that has 4 units (we stayed in one of these) and about 6 cabins. The motel and cabins are very old and don't look... More

We have traveled to Sweetwater lake for weekend getaways for 4 years now. It is very unique in todays life of cell phones and constant noise. At sweetwater lake, you will not find that. Our favorite activity is the row boats. The hummingbirds are very entertaining. And the simplicity makes you not want to leave. My wife has a busy... More
