  • Love this state park! Great location off the beaten path with great fishing if you are will to work it. Camp sites are clean and organized and not too close together. All campsite restrooms are pit toilets but not horribly gross as some have been in my past. The main office has showers that are $1.50 for like 5 minutes but they seem to run much longer. The office/shower building has regular water toilets if you absolutely can't use the pit toilets. Very clean campground and a strong presence of game and parks people. The Marina is a nice addition to the campground as well that has all your basic needs. Little spend but what you pay over there you would pay in going down the mountain in gas to get to a larger store.
  • Camped with my daughter. The scenery is breathtaking. The sites are big and private. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. The lake is amazing. The only problem is lack of shade. If you don't have am RV, you won't have shade in any of the sites! At all
  • The park was nice, but I will never stay here again. We were enjoying ourselves until a park ranger approached us about our vehicle being parked partly on grass. I did not think it was a big deal and was prepared to move it on to the gravel. The Ranger then asked for my license, which i obliged. He noticed i had an out of state license. The then informed us of the policy of all vehicles remaining parked on the "parking pad" and that it was listed as a rule on a sign we were supposed to see driving through the park. When we checked in, no one mentioned any such rules or policies. Since i had an out of state license, he said we would have to take me in to custody and post bond unless i could present a temporary address in Colorado. I was able to do so, since i am working on 3 month contract in Colorado. He then said he would treat me like an in state resident and i had the option to pay him $50 on the spot or take it to court. He stated it was only $50 and would not break the bank. I have never experienced corruption like this, and am appalled it came from such a nice park.
  • Not a fan at all. Out of all the state parks I have been to, which is most I left here the most disappointed and least likely to ever return. The blonde lady at the park office not the marina was rude both times I dealt with her. The first question they ask you is, "Are you staying here" then they give you a short rude response and tell you multiple times to make sure you have your camping permit with you. Especially make sure you have that permit if you want to dump your waste in probably the worst state park dump station. NO WATER, DRY DUMP!?!?!?! The rangers drive around the campgrounds like they have never seen a kid, running stop signs, not even pausing with kids on bikes everywhere. What a disappointment this state park is!
  • Beautiful views, very reasonable prices, a play area for the kids. For those who need a little convenience, there are showers and toilets at the Rangers station. Loved our sites and will definitely go back.
