Overflow Camping is an asphalt parking lot.

Better than nothing, so happy for the neighbor 12 feet away with the cheap generator, if it weren’t for the noises POS I’d have to listen to them yell at each other. Really people, show some compassion.

Boondocking at its best.

Great neighbors nearby, very calm and quiet seniors. A little too crowded for my taste though. There are about a dozen campers in this meadow and no kids in the group. Ah, peace and quiet. I came here to escape the heat in the Northwest. Daytime high around 65, nighttime lows around 40 with…

About This Campground

Sitting deep in the forest to the west of Leadville, Turquoise Lake takes its name from the Turquoise mines that produced the semiprecious stone in Leadville's not too distant past. A spot prized for its fishing, camping, and hiking, Turquoise Lake provides some of the most beautiful views on the Leadville Ranger District. The east end of the lake hosts the majority of campgrounds, while the west end of the lake hosts the popular May Queen Campground near the Timberline Lake trailhead, which accesses the Holy Cross Wilderness. To the southwest of the lake rises the Mt. Massive Wilderness, along with such beautiful hikes as Native Lake and Windsor Lake. Snow in these areas can stay well into midsummer, and possibly longer. Turquoise Lake is heavily visited, especially during the summer months. Reservations for those campgrounds on Turquoise Lake that take reservations are often filled early, especially for holiday weekends. Camping is only allowed in developed campgrounds in the Turquoise Lake Area. There is no dispersed camping available.
