Windy and beautiful

Campground is somewhat exposed to wind. Trails lead out from campground to canyons and peaks. Clean pit toilets, no water. There's a horse corral with four pens. Road up is dirt/rock -- could by tough with snow/rain. Several stretches are one lane with occasional turnouts. Wind was very strong so…

Loved this campground !

Had a great experience here. We all enjoyed the super nice pool & hot tub. They also had a neat cactus garden to walk through.
Shuffle board available too.

Excellent family site

This is a great campsite for tent or campers. It has great access to the lake and the fish are almost always biting. Bring the kids bikes so they can explore a bit and enjoy the sunsets.

Nice and quiet

This USDA Forest Service campground is a very nice one. Nicely laid out sites, well maintained bathrooms. It’s easy to walk to the lake from the lowest tent sites. We stayed here in fall, and imagine it’s heavily used in summer. There’s a great trail around the lake. $20 as of November 2020.

Not bad for the price

Super cheap. The sites and restrooms needs some tlc. We were the only ones in the tent camping area which was a plus. This campground is good if you r doing tours in the day or just need a trip to get out.

I want to give this place 5 stars but not having a natural water source and locking the gates at night don’t get ya 5 stars 🤓 ...I understand their reasoning behind locking the gates however; bad humans out there that come in late at night and trash the place and don’t pay the measly $7 a night to…

Less busy then Patagonia Lake

We had a great time here over the weekend. The sites are large and spaced out. Each space has a fire pit and picnic table. There is water available but it’s located next to the pit toilets, not at the individual sites.

You can see the lake from the sites, but we had to walk about 1/2 mile to get…

Better as Day Use or Group Campground (Don't Trust the Website)

I hope this is the hardest campground review I ever have to write. The visit to Colossal Cave Mountain Park started pretty terrible but the property manager/caretaker (Gary) saved this review. Let me start from the beginning.

Upon arrival we were checked in and told there were fire restrictions in…

  • A view of the gift shop
  • It's normally very sunny here but we camped in the rain and it made for some spectacular views.
  • The group campsite, El Bosquecito. Lots of spaces but very close together and walk in only.

Family Camping

We regularly camp here with our cub scout pack and their families. Nice and well maintained sites, accessible bathrooms, and great rangers.
