Campground with a nice view of the lake

We stayed in Site # 60 in the cedar campground it had electric I believe we filled with water. There is a loop with full hook up but there a little further than the lake but nice. Our site had a nice covered area with the picnic table under it & a great view from it. The lake is good for kayaking other than there are some people that come a few times a week to pull kids on tubes and they about swamped up. It's a beautiful lake, the weather is warmer than everywhere else we were in Colorado but still nice. Loved watching the deer get a drink from the lake later in the day. 

This park has 4 loops and there is a lot of nice sites. All have differrent things to offer.

Rifle falls is close by we spent several days taking chairs over there & sitting near the waterfalls it was cooler there. There is a campground there but it's busier and has a lot more people coming to see the falls. 

Close by you have Rifle Falls, Glenwood Hot Springs, Iron Mountain springs a little less busy and really nice.

Beautiful area

Really pretty country, lots too explore around the area. Nice camping. Sometimes it does get a bit crowded.

Empty off season Campground

We stayed in Cottonwood which is brand new with nice shower facility and gorgeous lake views. There were a few other campers in other parts of the campground but being shoulder season, we had the place almost to ourselves (except for some geese) we were originally going to stay up the road at rifle falls state park but that smaller campground was super muddy due to snow melt. Good cell reception at the visitors center.

High on a hill !

Booked through Passport America. Beautiful Rocky Mountain get away. We stayed one night on our way to California. The check in was difficult because only one person was working. After check in, we went to our site high on the hill above the lake. Awesome views and quiet overlook. Since fall weather was closing in, we didn’t need shade but if we had wanted it, there would have been very little to find!

Lots of different camping spaces

We love that’s there’s multiple loops to choose from for camping, and that the lake is right there. Fun for the kids! Wish there was more landscaping, or just more shady areas and privacy.

Good clean campground

Good clean campground. Sites are a little close together. We went on a busy weekend and it was completely full. Sites were clean and the bathrooms were clean all weekend. It is close to the lake and a quick drive or an easy walk. Had a great time!

Awesome lake veiw

Ccampground is clean, spacious, and well mantained. Has all the ammenties you need. Great lake. Not a lot of shade but a few.

Water activity

We had car issues as we pulled into the park. Rangers are all great people here. They helped us get to our site and connect with the tow and repair shop. Water levels are down 10ft, but the boating is still good. Water is clear but bottom is silt. Campsites are very clean, little to no trees.

Great view with nearby hikes

coming from the Rockies, this is a short drive to warmer weather camping with a lake. This area is great for hiking especially the falls near by. The campground is multiple loops with benefits to each - some have a lot of space with no shade while some have a bunch of shade and trees with smaller area to camp. Bring your kayak and go for a dip on the lake!

Hidden gem

This place was great. Off the interstate so not to get a lot of drive by traffic. We camped right on the lake, with a concrete pad, picnic table and the bathhouse was close by. Plus just a few minute drive to the Rifle falls.
