Camp near Leadville beside alpine lakes at this primitive camping spot in Leadville at 10,00 feet of elevation! Twin Lakes campground Colorado is equipped for tents or boondocking with a stone fire pit and level ground. Beware the road leading up to it is not paved.
Pull into a campground near Leadville and Twin Lakes, Colorado, for a convenient place to pitch your tent, hook up your RV, find a hot shower, and enjoy a peaceful night in the woods.
We had a wonderful time camping along the Twin Lakes beach! A high clearance vehicle is preferred but we made do without one. There’s plenty of drive-in campsites, but we opted to haul our gear to a secluded spot on the beach. It was definitely worth it! The views were incredible and in the morning we hopped right into the crystal clear water.
We’ll be back to this spot again for a longer weekend because 1 full day isn’t enough!
There are about a dozen sites up here. Would definitely recommend a higher clearance vehicle but some are easy to get to. Sites are pretty close together.
Nice camp ground, gorgeous views day or night. I didn’t do so good fishing but heard it’s great.
Camp site perched up above the lake. Awesome view
Wow. Totally worth checking this out. There were plenty of other free spots at lower elevation but the view here is worth it. You drive up the mountain and then it’s a very short dirt road to the sites(about 5 in total). My little Saturn car was able to make it with 2 wheel drive easy. No water or amenities. Campfire rings and spots for tents. I wouldn’t bring an rv up there. Enjoy!!
lots of places to pull off the road, can get crowded during weekends in the summer so get there early to grab a good spot if you want a view of the twin lakes.
the location is half way between 2 mountain towns. there are no stores close, 25 miles at least. the lake is down this year and is quite.
This is a primitive site with many fire rings and stunning views of Twin Lakes and the surrounding 14ers. There is no official road to pull off, you will just pull of the paved road and follow the dirt path and look for a spot, You can camp in the open or in the trees. You can maneuver a small pop up or off road camper likes ours to most of the spots.
This is not in Lakeview Campground but up the road towards the reservoir.
