3 Reviews of Jumbo (Julesburg Reservoir) State Wildlife Area
Lake is almost dry

The lake is dry about 50% No overnight camping. Just daytime beach. Nothing to do here any more

Great spot for when the west side of the state is in Fire Ban!

we stayed for two nights and really had a great time. soft ground made it an easy set up for camp. Nice and quiet during the evening and a great spot for paddleboarding too!

First to Review
Quiet, Fun and close to home

It’s a wildlife refuge so it’s a little different to stay than say North Sterling Reservoir. For now anyways…

This is the perfect place to go to stay close to our home and not a long road home. You are able to schedule time with friends and head down and save your camping spot a day or two in advance.

Pets and fires are allowed. Just keep them on a chain and put them out!

They recently restricted up by the water camping which is awesome for parties that have lots of kids! They aren’t running into traffic unknowingly!

There is practically no beach but if you know that going into it, it’s fine!! You pick your passions!!
