Colorado’s best kept secrets

This hike/camping experience is one that you'll only know from being a local. The elevation gain about 2,000 ft. and the line shack is about 4.5 miles one way. It's open to XC skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.  This is also a hunting cabin too. First come, first serve. 

The line shack sits on…

Great spot to explore

Visited 7/18/21. Approach is very busy but the lake area just serene. The lake is beautiful and you can swim in the water and fish. It’s an ideal place to camp for a weekend while hiking the area. Lots of lakes to visit beyond there. Planning to return with a rod next week.

Great campground pulling right off of rte 82 but with little to no road noise or visual. Best sites are along creek (3,4,6,7) with others ranging from 2.5 to 4 stars. Sites have table and fire pit and adult trees on soft dirt and flowers. Most of the 9 or 10 sites are large... The largest, listed…

  • part of site 4... private creekside...about 30meters from tent and eating sections.

Great camping near Turquoise Lake

Great campground on the shores of Turquoise Lake. Lots of clean toilets. Sites are well placed with space between them. Some are tight for a trailer. The bugs were not bad. The lake is beautiful and lots of things to do. Definitely will come back. The campground hosts were the best!

  • site 46
  • short walk to the shore

Unique location, right mix of natural beauty and amenities

My family of 4 had a great time at Big B's. Our only complaint was that it was quite hot (topped out near 100 degrees). The prepared food and cider were tasty, we got some fresh fruit and processed items to bring along with us (the peaches were amazing!). Our kids aged 8 and 11 absolutely loved the…

  • Rope swings from the trees early in the morning when few other folks were around.
  • Some fresh peaches at the peak of their ripeness are a divine thing to enjoy.

Great spot

Overall this was a really great campground to stay in. I only give 5/5 stars if I would return and this is a campground I’ll return to.

The campsites were very spacious and overall the entire campsite, (including bathrooms) was very clean and well maintained. We booked this at the last minute…

  • beautiful sunset in this gorgeous valley
  • morning mountain fog
  • rainy and cool when the temps were 90+ in Denver

Lots of road noise, close neighbors, but thankful for a place for the night.

No longer an official campground.

There are still some roads to "areas" but it is more like a slightly developed dispersed camping area

Perfect Dispersed Camping

This has been one of my favorite camping spots ever. Once you pass the Spring Creek Campground you will come up on a BLM sign and grom there until you can't drive anymore you can camp. All the way up and past the lake. I camped near the front because I got there late and had to find a spot quick…

Beautiful spot

Can get pretty busy depending on what time you get there but great views especially if you can get a spot down by the lake.

Great spot!

They had fire grates and toilets for the campsite. It was first come first served and is only $6 a night. The views were nice and the wildflowers were unbelievable. Gotta bring a paddle board for the lake next time I go!

Beautiful scenes

Our campsite was in the middle of the loop. The campsite was a little overgrown but very spacious. Our campsite was near the restrooms. They were vault toilets but very clean. It’s tucked into the Rio Grande National Forest (no cell service at all in the forest) and there are streams going through…

Quiet and Clean

This a great spot in a pretty state park. The Pioneer campground is down a gravel road and has views of the reservoir. Lots of deer. Not much privacy between sites in the area I was in. Could not locate showers in my campground either. Maybe the showers are at one of the other campgrounds nearby…
