About This Campground

Sunset Campground is situated on the shores of Union Valley Reservoir, among the towering cedar and ponderosa pines of Eldorado National Forest.

Nice area

We have been here once. It was early June. The weather rained, hailed and snowed. We were determined to stick it out but it was not the funniest camping trip. The water area is nice but it is a distance from most campsites. Campsites are a little close in some areas.
