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.

Alerts and Important Information
In addition to the camping fee, an entrance fee is required at all State Parks!

The Lake Hasty Campground, located below the dam, provides plentiful shade with large trees in most sites. All 109 campsites have electrical hook-ups and modern facilities including centrally located water hydrants, coin operated showers and laundry facilities and pay showers. Some campsites are available year-round.

New for 2012, the Point Campground has re-opened for part of the year. The Point Campground, located on the north shore, sits on a ridge about a quarter mile away from the reservoir. No electricity, water or shade is available, but the views of the reservoir and surrounding landscape are exceptional. Vault toilets are available for your convenience. Point Campground is basically an overflow camping area and is only open from Memorial Day weekend to the 4th of July weekend. It is only available for reservations on weekends and holidays during this period.

Lake water levels fluctuate and launching boats can become difficult as early as July 1. Check the State Parks Webpage for current conditions.
