I definitely see why the campground is called Lakeview! We had an excellent stay here with the exception of the hail and thunderstorm, but there was no planning for that. The site hosts we're very welcoming and friendly! My only issue is there were a lot of large RVs- one right next to us that had a huge generator which was REALLY loud! Very distracting when trying to get away from the sounds of the city.
There are a ton of activities to do in gunnison the campground is nice. The bathroom does not have flush water but there is water for drinking, but the water was a weird brown color so bring water before you go if you care.
