The campground was well maintained, but the sites were so close together. Getting from loop E to the water was a trek. We tried 3 water spigots before we found one that worked. The bathrooms were well maintained. It was very beautiful sunsets. Lots of trash in the res though. It seems as if people just don’t care about their surroundings. We only saw 1 fish jump out while we were there so fishing was pretty lackluster.
We’ve stayed here twice, both in early June so we were relatively prepared for the cold coming off the lake. Like with any campsite, I say do your research on the area before visiting. Not all sites have views of the lake, but there is PLENTY of space to explore the shore. We were in Loop E most recently and backed up to a beautiful open space. We saw a big pronghorn and plenty of ground squirrels. Even though we were a little close to our neighbors, we barely heard them thanks to the boulders that served as site dividers. The bathrooms are always stocked and clean. During the day, we ventured down to the Marina Shop, played on the playground with our daughter (the slides are steep but she loved it), and then wandered along the shoreline. They offer kayaking, but it was way too cold for us.
We can’t wait to go back!
This campground is surprisingly beautiful. The snow covered peaks rise in the background of the lake. There are multiple small campgrounds around the lake that make up the State Park. The small campgrounds near the lake are non-electronic. The electric sites are further from the lake but a few of them have lake views. The marina appears to rent kayaks and canoes. The staff in the office were very friendly. The downside is that there are no trees and it can be very windy.
This campground has no shade and the spots were pretty small but the bus were big. Bring plenty of sun screen and comfy shoes, you sure may be a ways from the water.
we make 2 trips here every summer. We troll early in the morning before the wind kicks up. When it’s a full moon, we like to night fish from the shore.
It’s a long and bumpy drive to the back of the last camping area, but soooo worth it. We were greeted by a pack of donkeys who were very friendly and let us pet them. Then our camp was close enough to other campers but not cramped at all we still had plenty of our own space to not disturb our neighbors. They had no clue we got in a little after dark and set up camp and cooked food on our grill. When we woke up we were greeted with the most amazing Colorado sunrise over the mountains and water. We were in awe of the beauty that first morning waking up in the mountains. We went fishing and although we had no luck because we are from Ohio and don’t know how to catch trout lol we saw lots of people leaving with some nice sized fish. We will definitely be back. This was definitely a slice of heaven on earth.
Another great Colorado State Park, it sits above Eleven Mile Reservoir. The sites offer everything from tent sites to full hook up. There is limited shade, but most sites are exposed.
Theres beautiful hikes around the lake and the fishing is awesome between the reservoir and Spinny Lake, and 11 Mile Canyon below the dam.
Appropriately named this camp area is on a lake 11 miles from the hwy. I know this because we drove to the wrong camp area. Don't do what we did we turned down another road exactly 100 yards from the eleven mile canyon camp area. Had to turn back and go another 11 miles. Ugh. So there is an11 mile canyon, and 11 mile State Parkl and 11 mile Spillway camp. Yikes =hind site. After 33 miles of s l o w driving… It's a great place and not heavily busy for a boatable lake! Nice n quiet.
You feel like you’re on an island in the forest. Weekdays are great because you likely heave the place to yourself.
We had a great 2 night stay at Rocky Ridge C Loop Site #34 and will definitely be back. Staff were all very friendly, and sites were well maintained.
