Lake Fork Campground sits in the Rio Grande Forest, 40 miles northwest of Antonito, Colorado. The campground is a true getaway from any city, and requires an 18-mile drive on a gravel road. This high elevation campground boasts limitless beauty with mountain peaks, alpine wildlife spotting and several varieties of birds. Natural Features: The campground is located in south central Colorado on the banks of the Conejos River. It is shaded by spruce, aspen and a few cottonwoods and willows at an elevation of 9,500 feet. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area, including black bears, deer and marmots. Wildflowers dot the region, creating colorful landscapes for photography enthusiasts. Recreation: The campground is convenient to several trails, such as Lake Fork to Big Lake and Conejos Peak to Blue Lake. The Conejos River is a Gold Medal River, meaning it offers the greatest potential for trophy trout fishing. Rainbow and brown trout are the most common species in the river. Facilities: Some campsites overlook the river. There is one centrally located drinking water spigot. All parking spurs are gravel. Firewood can be purchased on-site. No electric hookups are available. Campers will find an old-fashioned steel tub bath at Brummels Rocky Mountain Lodge about 10 miles south. Nearby Attractions: Take in spectacular views of the Conejos Canyon and River along Forest Road 250. ACTIVITIES Fishing Hiking
Easily one of the coolest and prettiest car camp grounds that I have been to. We stayed one night and had a great time. It is a well kept campground in some of the most beautiful country. I highly recommend this campsite for anyone looking to get away from the busyness of everyday life.
