A favorite spot

A favorite camping spot for me and my friends. Paid reservations and you need to pay a daily parking fee unless you have a state park pass. Hot in the summer!! Juniper breaks is alright but we really loved the kettle creek campground much better. Just be aware the water pump in kettle creek shoots straight up, which is VERY nice when you’re hot because #pueblo

A true desert oasis!

Lake Pueblo State Park offers 13+ miles of trails for hiking and biking, plus incredible access to Lake Pueblo itself.

The Arkansas Point Campground is a great place to camp. Sites offer mostly level pavement and 20/30/50 electric hookups. There is no water or sewer at the camp sites, but community water is available throughout the campground as well as a portable water spigot at the dump station.

My advice? Plan to stay here for at least 3-4 days. You’ll want to extra time to hit the trails during the day and do some stargazing at night.

Very nice campground

We stayed for one night in early October, at site 159. Level parking, and although we were somewhat close to our nearest neighbor to the east, it seemed like most sites offered privacy. As other have said, most if not all sites have covered picnic tables which are certainly nice in the Colorado sun. There are very nice paved trails for biking or walking. Well maintained facilities overall. Don’t expect shade at any of these sites. If we return, I would try to stay at some of the sites farther away from the entrance and closer to the water. Overall I definitely recommend this campground.

Won’t Go Back Ever

There is nothing to do unless you have a boat. No swimming allowed & it was 90*. The 1 area that allowed swimming was closed. Playground was closed & the rubber ground had lots of holes. We had electric hookups only. Our reservation was for 2 nights & only stayed 1. It was miserable. We stayed at Prairie Ridge space248.

Hot Happy Campers

Hot, hot, hot and more hot. Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way- the fishing here is great from the shore and a boat. You can spend a day just floating around on a tube, or simply drinking an iced cold tea under a shade structure.

Just know. In the summer-it’s hot!

Nice place

Good place. Hot in summer, but. Ice cool nights and mornings. Signage coming in was lacking. Web site and phone calls said “sold out” but there must have been 25 spots open that we could see. Electric, but no water. Nice showers and bath.

High plains camping-wind, wind and more wind

Nothing to write home about but it has electric. Decent spacing between sites but nothing between sites except sagebrush and dirt really equals zero separation.

Plenty of option

Pueblo Reservoir has plenty of options for day use and also camping. Whether you want to boat, fish, swim, hike, sun tan or just chill with some scenery- you can do it here. It’s nice but sometimes has a foul fish smell depending on where you are in the park. There are facilities around and overall it was a pleasant place to spend weekends!

Good for boaters

We had a fairly spacious site but beware back to back sites when booking. Some sites looked like a pull through that was split into two sites which is not great for privacy. Most campers had large RVs and came with their boats. This seems like a perfect camping spot for boaters since all the activities are on the lake but if you don't have a boat, you might want to consider another spot. We brought a kayak and it was not the best lake for kayaking as the water is rough from boaters who were frequently inconsiderate. The shoreline is very rocky and sharp so bring sturdy water shoes. The campsite is exceptionally windy so best not to pop-up a shade structure unless you want to watch it fly away.
