Excellent

We had an amazing time! Showed up later on a Thursday and got super lucky with and awesome site. The lake is super close and the campground is surrounded with amazing trails. It’s a short drive from Leadville as well.

Beautiful location. Great hiking nearby

A beautiful site with a great location. Easy drive into Leadville and great access to the Colorado Trail. Nice put toilet, huge sites really give everyone space at this site. Great views of the lake and mountains on the other side. Picnic table and fire pit, totally recommend!

Pretty quiet on the lake

Not a bad spot! Pretty secluded right on Turquoise Lake. There was only one space left open for us to camp on, but it was right near the stream that leads to the lake. Plenty of fishing for Brown and Rainbow trout. There are some good trails nearby including Haggermans, which was pretty moderate.
