Wellington lake is a perfect family camping spot for anyone who likes to fish, kayak or otherwise play in the water. The sites book quickly but are worth it. We had 2 sites, one on the water and one off and that was a great balance. The sites don't have hookups and the campground doesn't have drinking water so bring all you need. The flies were miserable when we were there and didn't seem to respond to any sort of bug spray but citronella oil seems to help a little. Make sure everything in your rig is screwed down tightly as the 10 mile road to the campground is washboard bumpy beyond belief.
This small campground is great for those looking for a quick getaway near Denver. It's pretty quiet as they don't allow fires or alcohol although I'm not sure the alcohol is enforced. Great access to trails for hiking nearby. The shower houses are super clean which is a nice bonus.
