About Pinewood Reservoir

Pinewood Reservoir is located west of Carter Lake at an elevation of 6,580 feet. Pinewood is 100 acres of water surrounded by 327 acres of public land. It is popular for trout fishing and camping. The campground is newly remodeled and has drive in electric sites as well as walk in tent sites overlooking Pinewood Reservoir. The reservoir is part of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project operated by the Bureau of Reclamation and the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District. The purpose of this water project is to divert water from the west slope to the east slope for drinking water, irrigation, and hydropower generation. Reclamation is solely responsible for power generation. The agencies jointly manage water levels for irrigation, municipal, and industry use. Recreation is managed by Larimer County Natural Resources.

Brand new, 15 standard drive in electric sites and 12 walk-in tent sites are found at Pinewood. There are vault toilets and water spigots throughout the campground in addition to day use parking, picnicing, and a natural play area.

1 Review of Pinewood Reservoir
First to Review
Small but very nice campground above Loveland, CO

Pinewood Reservoir campground (also reviewed on this website as "Pinewood Lake" campground) is a small but well-maintained campground and has nice views of a lake and rolling foothills. There are 16 RV sites and 9 walk-in tent sites. Non-motorized small boats allowed and there is an easy hiking trail around the lake. Only draw back is you pay both a park fee and a campsite fee.
