Charming Lake

There is a nice little shoreline trail that takes you around the lake. Campsites were nice, each site had a table. Some of the stalls in the bathroom were missing toilet paper and both the men's and women's bathrooms were out of soap. According to the maintenance schedule the bathrooms hadn't been checked in two days.

Beautiful Forest

This campground is beautiful! Each site is surrounded by ponderosa pines. A small creek flows through the campground.

Great Hiking

My friend and I took an overnight backpacking trip here. The hiking trails are nice and there is a nice lake at the parking lot.


This place is paradise. I highly recommend visiting. Be sure to plan ahead. It can be difficult to get camping permits.

Beautiful Park

The campsites were nice and the park is beautiful. In the morning we had breakfast in the lodge and had the chance to watch a storm come in through the canyon. It was incredible.

Love this place!

This is one of my favorite campgrounds. In a short hike you can set up camp surrounded by pines along the river. There is also a natural hot springs.

Beautiful Views

On a whim we decided to go spend the weekend at Great Sand Dunes National Park. The campgrounds at the park were full so we started looking for campgrounds near by. We happened upon Zapata Falls Campground and it was even more beautiful than the campground in the national park. We really enjoyed our stay here. The drive up the mountain is rough but once you reach the camping area it gets better. The campsites have picnic tables and fire pits. There are also toilets available.
