3 Reviews of Lottis Creek Campground
Definitely a favorite

Great spot for tent or RV camping. Stayed in Union loop with Jess (site manager btw awesome guy). Pros: -very clean sites and restrooms thanks to Jess. -great fishing along the Taylor river -plenty of shaded area at the sites. -great hiking. Cons: -if coming from Denver it’s a trek due to cottonwood pass being under construction. Bottom line: definitely a great spot, must check it out.

Park Cone Loop of Lottis Creek Campground

Smaller part of the Lottis Creek camp area on the other side of the creek. Only 10 sites, most you can reserve. Well maintained, beautiful spot at 9000’. Lots of birds and deer. Cattle drive in late June skirts the boundary, but it’s kind of fun to watch the cowboys and their dogs work. Great hiking from the site.
