Basic, simple sites at lower lake location. Upper lake has benches and picnic tables with fishing. No campground at upper lake. Some of the prettiest views.

Fresh air and crystal lakes

Definitely a commitment to get to these spots, but you’ll be rewarded. Make sure to print a map before you head in, as you’ll loose all forms of cell reception once you leave the main highway into Canjilon. The campsites have trees between, so a bit of privacy. There are three different lakes to choose from up near the sites, and they are stocked with trout. Plenty of hiking trails as well. The closest convenient store or grocer is a good 40 minute drive, so pack in what you can.
