Firewood Notice: PLEASE DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD FROM OUT OF STATE!
If you are planning to camp during an upcoming trip to Colorado, please help protect our public lands by buying local firewood near your destination campground. Firewood can spread harmful insect pests and diseases. If you have brought firewood from another state, please contact the Colorado Department of Agriculture immediately for instructions on how to dispose of it.

Find Campsites

 
ALERT: Our major road renovation project is underway. In order to minimize the disruptions and get as much work completed as quickly as possible some of our campgrounds have been taken off of the reservation system. They may close some of the Loops in these campgrounds while they work in these areas. They have completed most of the work in Rocky Ridge. They will be working on the remaining area in Loop A of Rocky Ridge and finishing the Park Office Parking Lot hopefully prior to Friday 7/18/14 but that is not a guarantee. Rocky Ridge went back on the Reservation system as of 7/1/14.

We have taken North Shore and the Back County sites off of the Reservations system beginning 7/6/14 and are hoping to have them back on by 8/15/14. These dates are subject to change as the construction moves on through North Shore and the Back County. We will put our sites back on the Reservation as soon as we are able to as they complete those areas.

Roads on the south side of the reservoir, including Witcher's Cove, Howbert Point, Rocking Chair, Rogers Mountain, Lazy Boy and Cross Creek will be re-gravelled during the summer and fall of 2014, but we do not anticipate closures in those areas. Sites in those locations can be reserved a minimum of three days in advance of arrival for visits through September 6th, 2014.

Visitors can expect noise and short delays during construction, which will be limited to daylight hours through the summer months. We appreciate your patience while we complete this much-needed project.

ELEVEN MILE STATE PARK, CO

Description

Discover incredible fishing at one of Colorado's largest reservoirs, Eleven Mile State Park! Rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout, kokanee salmon, northern pike and carp are all found within the waters of this 3,400 surface-acre reservoir. Waterfront camping, scenic vistas, uncrowded boating and ideal wind conditions for sailing and windsurfing make Eleven Mile a best bet for all visitors. The park is open year-round, offering spectacular Rocky Mountain sunsets and plenty of room to breathe. Visitors may choose from a variety of campsites at Eleven Mile State Park's 348 site facility. The showers, flush toilets and laundry facilities are closed for the season and will re-open on May 1, 2014. Vault toilets remain open year-round.

Eleven Mile Reservoir is now closed to boating for the season.

Check the park conditions page at www.parks.state.co.us/parks/elevenmile for the most current information.

Geography:

Eleven Mile State Park is located in South Park, a high alpine meadow at 8600 feet above sea level. Most areas lack trees but provide panoramic views of surrounding mountains or granite outcrops. Shade may be naturally provided by trees and other vegetation in some areas, particularly within some sites in Rocky Ridge C and E loops and the Back Country campsites. Please call the park for specific details.

Recreation:

Specific fishing and boating regulations exist for this park.

Water sports such as swimming, wading, tubing and waterskiing are prohibited.


Facilities:

Campsites in Rocky Ridge B, C, D and E-Loops, as well as those in North Shore D-Loop and the west end of Stoll Mountain, are closed for the season.

All other campsites are available exclusively on a first-come first-served basis until May, when the reservation season starts back up.

We are scheduled to re-pave access roads in Rocky Ridge, North Shore and Coyote Ridge/Backcountry areas in the spring and early summer. These sites will not be reserveable during this period, but many will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact the park at 719-748-3401 for more information.

Roads will be re-gravelled on the south side of the reservoir at Witcher's Cove, Howbert Point, Rocking Chair, Lazy Boy and Cross Creek in the Spring of 2014 as well, but sites in those locations can be reserved up to six months in advance for arrivals beginning May 9, 2014. Sites in those locations that are not reserved and are not occupied are available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the winter and spring.
