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.

Premier fishing, camping and boating are available along with a full-service marina and swim beach. The absolutely wonderful scenery--including nearby peaks, the Continental Divide, lush green valleys and colorful alpine wildflowers--make the park picturesque year-round. Hiking & biking trails meander through meadows and along the shoreline. Winter comes alive with ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and access to 146 miles of prime snowmobile trails. Most of the 188 campsites are very sunny and have outstanding views, many overlooking the 1,011 acre lake. Our sites accommodate trailers, motor homes, campers and tents.
