Located in the Grand Mesa Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests, Lottis Creek Campground is at an elevation of 8,600 feet above sea level. On the shores of Lottis Creek, this newly remodeled campground is a perfect getaway for anyone that loves the outdoors. Nestled in lodgepole pines down the Taylor River Canyon, Lottis Creek Campground is great for anglers, hikers, bikers, and four-wheeler enthusiasts.
Two miles to the south, visitors will find access to the Fossil Ridge Wilderness Area. Hikers and equestrians can enjoy the trails of this pristine natural area. No mechanized or motorized vehicles are permitted in any Wilderness area. To the east of Lottis Creek Campground, four-wheel drivers will find many roads to explore. Cumberland Pass Road provides access to most of these trails.
There are 37 single family campsites. There is one group site accommodating 50 people and 10 vehicles with a group pavilion. This facility was completely renovated in 2012 with electric hookups at most sites. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring.
Many of the electric hookup campsites benefit from the shade provided by the lodgepole pines in the campground.
Taylor Park Reservoir is just a few miles from the campground, offering boating, fishing and swimming opportunities. A boat ramp and boat rentals are available there as well.â??Many trails for hikers are close by. Fishing is abundant in many areas and you will find numerous four-wheel drive trails.

What a gem! Lottis Creek is peaceful and beautiful, and just a great place to relax and enjoy the Colorado air. We stayed here over the weekend and really enjoyed the hosts on Baldy loop. They took great care of this campground and were kind to compliment our group (with lots of kids between the two families there). Getting to talking to them this was their last season, so can't speak to the hosts for next year.
We didn't have any cell service on AT&T, though one of the kids in our group had Verizon and was able to get a signal for calls. Not sure on data, but the hosts did say "Verizon worked". As others say driving up to the reservoir (10 minutes) has full bars service (if you need it).
Best camping ground I’ve been to. Host is amazing and hiking trail right next to the campgrounds leads to a beautiful valley. Will visit again
Stayed at the group site. Drinking water, pavilion with electricity & lights, your own restrooms. Slept right next to the creek. Trailheads walking distance away.
This campground is located about 15 minutes from Taylor Reservoir. You don’t have views of the reservoir but the campground is beautifully settled between pine trees. Yet, not enough shade to block our solar intake. No cell service. You have to drive to the reservoir to get it. The hosts were great and kept the place very cleaned and maintained. Some sites are more private than others. There is a nice hike close to the campground and the Taylor River is just a few minutes away. All sites had electrical hook ups. We loved it here!
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.
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.
Quiet, clean and peaceful campground. Friendly hosts. Looking forward to returning!
