There were lots of kayaks and paddle boards on the water. The trail was wide, with great views all around the lake. Many people were successful with fishing. The 1.5 mile trail was perfect for us after 17 hours of driving and getting acclimated to the elevation.

When we were there we camped in the middle of a grass field surrounded by mountains. It was beautiful. A nice lake to fish and hiking trails. Had water spigots to fill your jugs but no electricity. No place to charge phones (not even the outlet at the bathroom). Quarter showers that were nice and warm.

It's an hour drive from Avon on mostly paved road, with only the last 5 miles being well maintained dirt, to this lovely mountain lake. The 1.5 mile hike around the lake is scenic, about half in the sun and half in the trees. There are picnic tables right next to the parking, but they are not shaded. Some folks... More

Amazing place for a hike. You can't swim at the lake, but you can bring your kayak or a floating boat like we did! There are some cabins and I saw some camping tents too. Lots of picnic tables around. Watch your step for the hundreds of holes on the ground. They are the houses of cute little ground squirrels.... More

Spent two nights here last week. Didn't really know what to expect, just found it online and decided to go. Not too far from Denver, which was nice. It's half forest, part Jurassic park. Tons of aspens, lots of foresty trees. Not too many trees in the actual campground though, which doesn't make for too much privacy, but we didn't... More

Friendly staff at visitors center, plenty of picnic tables for day use, and a wide range of campsites. Take bug spray if walking around lake or fishing. Roads were maintained but I'd be hesitant to take a car beyond Sylvan Lake. Couldn't get beyond Basalt today because of large snow drift, but it was incredible scenery. $7 for day use... More

We've stayed in Sylvan Lake twice, the first time in a tent site, the second in cabin #8--which we loved, and highly recommend. It's private, comfortable, and right by an aspen covered hillside. And it has access to the Sneeve Gulch hiking trail, which we found to be a short and relatively easy climb on a packed dirt trail to... More

We spent an afternoon here. The visitor center is very nice and the staff are knowledge le and helpful. The lake is nice, as is the walking trail around it. There's really no shade, and at this high altitude, the sun can be scorching, so either bring your own shade, or plenty of sunscreen and water.

First, my rating is based on my actual experience at Sylvan Lake. If I would visit again, I would probably have a more pleasant experience. So I'll try to give you information that will make your experience more than average because I do believe Sylvan Lake has potential. Campsites: There are four different experiences available. 1. "Fisherman's Paradise" - I... More

Fairly easy to get to (about 25 minutes from I70), there is a dirt road for the last 5 miles so keep that in mind. Beautiful location - the lake is pretty and there are groomed trails around the lake and near the campground. We just went for the afternoon, brought a picnic lunch (there are several picnic benches) and... More
