“We Love it here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Everyone has their own taste in camping, but I can't find anything about this state park that would not appeal to everyone. I'd like to keep it a secret, but it's the best campground we've stayed at so far in Colorado with our camper. The restrooms and showers are maintained and clean. The sites are well groomed too, and spaced just far enough apart to really enjoy some away time. The only downfall right now, is with the drought, the reservoir is very LOW, so fishing is a bit tough going. The mountain views or the pinyon pine areas are both excellent.

Beautiful lake and views. Enjoyed driving around the park. The views of the San Juans from the lake are spectacular.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We have camped here now 4 times and love this place. We lucked out and were there for the Huck Finn fishing derby, which our kids loved. The party down at the beach was a blast too. Can't wait to go back!

“A Beautiful Place to Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

THE place to RV or camp while exploring Colorado's inspiring San Juan Mountains. Nicely laid out campgrounds for all types of rigs. Great hiking trails right in the park!
