ALERT: We have started a major road renovation project which will take place in different areas of the park through the summer of 2014. In order to minimize the disruption and get as much work completed as quickly as possible, camp sites in Rocky Ridge are currently only available on a first-come, first-served basis. Specific campground loops within an area may be closed temporarily while construction progresses, but we do not intend to close the entire campground all at once, and will keep as many sites open as possible when it is safe and efficient to do so.
We have put the North Shore and the Backcountry campsites back on the reservation system until July 6th. As we get closer to that date, we will determine if we will be able to extend the reservation dates longer, or move these sites to a first-come, first-served basis only based on the construction schedule, but want to make sure we do not have to cancel reservations or move guests to other locations.
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 of 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. Any sites in these areas that are not reserved is available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the winter.
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.

DescriptionDiscover 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 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.
Specific fishing and boating regulations exist for this park.
Water sports such as swimming, wading, tubing and waterskiing are prohibited.
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.
