My wife and I took our inaugural trip in our small camper to Pinewood Reservoir last weekend during the front range's first snowfall for 2019. We had just bought our camper and weren't about to let a little snow stop us from trying things out. We drove up on Thursday and the roads, despite some steep climbs and winding curves, was in great shape.
We found the campground empty, and already white with the snowfall. We had a reserved a spot and claimed it. Several other sites appeared to be reserved, but with the weather, we had the place all to ourselves. Heaven, with just a taste of lonely. Even with the snow and us being novices we set up without a hitch and were soon enjoying the magical panorama of the lake below us and the hills and mountain tops around us.
By Friday the weather had cleared and the Colorado blue skies had returned. While it was still chilly a few other campers arrived, including a number of Boy Scouts trying to hone their cold weather tenting skills. By our Saturday departure, the camp ground was filling up and we enjoyed meeting some nice neighbors.
All in all the place was perfect. the water access was off due to the seasons cold, but the place was clean, the restrooms were open, and the electricity was on. A great place for late season, and I am sure it is busy but spectacular during the summer.
