Typical private campground

This was a nice place. People were all super friendly. Pricey, but it’s private owned. Nice hiking trails super close to the campground. You can ride your dirt bikes, atvs from the campground into Rocky Mountain National Park. The town of Grand Lake was nice, typical mountain town. Breath taking views. Adams fall trail is near the town, recommend hiking. It’s pretty easy and not super long, but very cool! We saw our first and only moose while camping up there. It was super cool! They also have horse rides available for purchase and I believe dirt bikes/atvs

Favorite campground

This has by far been our favorite campground! The campground is spaced out nicely. It does not have electric or water hook ups. It does have Water spigots and a dumping station for a fee, I believe. It has awesome views of Mt. Elbert and Twin Lakes. The water is super cold, but it didn’t stop us from paddle boarding and having fun. The town of Leadville is small, but cute. If you take your bikes, I recommend doing the mineral belt trail. It’s a tough especially going in the one direction, lots of steep hills. Do some research first, some will tell you what direction to chose.

Clean, quiet campground

We visited in the fall. It was a quiet, nicely spaced campground. We had a spot right by the water. The water was really low, so we didn’t actually have water right in front of us. They offer all the amenities, electric, dump station, showers. Bring quarters for the shower! We stayed 2 nights. We drove into Estes Park, which wasn’t that far. The kids tried their luck at fishing, but didnt catch anything.

Small but quaint campground

It’s a small campground at the entrance to Mount Evans. Some of the sites are very close proximity, while others are pretty spread out. The camp host Rick was awesome! If your looking to party it up all night, this is not the place for you. Rick follows the quiet hours to a T! I would recommend this place for a night or 2. Also recommend the drive up to Mount Evans, spectacular views! There is a store/restaurant across the street from the campground, but it’s mostly touristy things, no camping supplies.
