We stopped here on our way south from Colorado Springs. After getting off I-25 and making it through all the construction detours in Trinidad, we still made it to the park in plenty of time on a Sunday afternoon to get the Tailgator set up for the Broncos game. Stayed at the Carpios Ridge Campground, the road is narrow and curvy but entering the park was a breeze and the park is very well laid out. Getting out with a 40’ RV was tight but manageable. The lower portion, laundry, and main restrooms were closed for the winter,. Two, family style family restrooms with coin operated showers were open and they were both clean. The lake was very low but the area is still beautiful, with nice hiking trails. Though it is probably due to the time of the year this park is the quietest we have ever come across. No trains, no cars, no planes, no nothing, just peace and quiet. Would recommend this park for a one night stay or a week outing. The fee is $20/night for an electric site and $24/night for e/w/s, plus and additional $7/day for a parking pass unless you have a Colorado State Parks pass. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Trinidad Lake State Park is a regular stop for us because it's so dependable. Furthermore they now have FIVE campsites with complete hook-ups, which is a real treat. We always sleep soundly here with no traffic or train noise. I have one small complaint about their automatic bathroom lights. They shut off after you sit down on the toilet. Really weird! We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Another excellent Colorado state park. We were lucky enough to get one of the back ins that have a slight view of the lake, but excellent screening from our neighbors. We were in the Carpios Ridge campground, which is located on a cliff on the north side of the lake. The lake was very low. A large picnic area was located next to the campground, and a nice handicapped accessible trail in this area provided lovely views of the lake. The restroom/shower/laundry room was very new and spotlessly clean! We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

I also prefer state parks to commercial campgrounds and this one has all of the reasons--great view, large paved spaces, enough room between sites for privacy, and is well-cared for. The lake level is quite low, but the view of the lake from the Carpios Ridge campground was nice enough that it did not matter. I also got good Verizon cell service and data service for my mobile hotspot. One warning, however, is that even though it says water hookups are available, they are really only available at scattered hydrants in the campground. So you need to fill your tanks before you settle into your spot. (For me that is not a problem, as long as I know in advance). Rate is $20 plus $7 entrance fee per day. I bought an annual pass for $70 because I am planning to spend enough time in Colorado to pay for it. This is a place I will come to again. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We had the park to ourselves, off-season. Rangers were very friendly and helpful. The water spigot did not work and they were promptly there to fix it. Sites are nice with smaller trees around. There is a hiking trail to see the lake. We had to back in to our spot which was a bit tight for our 44' RV. Ample room to park the pick-up. There are fire rings and picnic tables at each spot. Would certainly return and stay longer to enjoy the rest of the park. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We love state parks and Colorado has nice ones. We have a 45' rig and we had no problems. Roads are a little tight, and most sites are too short, but we were able to maneuver with no problem and there are enough long sites that we had our choice. Huge sites and plenty of quiet. Restrooms and laundry are clean. Need quarters for shower, but hot water comes on fast. Hiking trails, amphitheater, etc. AT&T signal good, but Verizon weak. We will definitely be back!

The fee reflects $29/night (full hookups) + $8/day park pass. There are only 4 full hookup sites 1, 3, 6, and 63. However, the site we reserved (#3) was not level enough for our Class A. We had to try out 2 more sites before we found one level enough. Otherwise, the park was spectacular. Fisherman's peak in one direction and the Rockies in another. The bathroom, shower, and laundry building was new and very clean. Verizon 4G LTE service was very good. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

A nice park. We had a little trouble getting level, but everything else was acceptable. Pretty much your standard Colorado state park. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

What a gem! We lucked out and got their "handicap" space and boy what a beauty it was too. The only difference was, really, was that the patio area was a bit larger. The view, for most their sites, is right along the cliff over looking the lake. Really pretty! All state parks should be this well maintained and beautiful! All roads, sites, public areas etc were top-notch clean and well maintained and separated with plenty of foliage. I only wish we would have had more time to spend here!

We used this state park campground as a one night stop over, and mid week the end of September, we had our choice of sites. We picked one at the top of the cliff overlooking the reservoir, put our chairs out between the bushes, and had a beautiful relaxing view. This park is just 3 miles from I-25 but is very quiet and peaceful. The sites are long, pretty level, mostly back-ins. The road through the campground is narrow with drainage ditches on both sides which makes backing a fifth wheel into some spots a challenge. We would stay here again if passing through.

My family and I have camped here several times. We like it very much. It has big spacious spots. Friendly staff. We stayed there before they rebuilt the building for the restrooms/showers, and we didn't mind the bathrooms before. They were old, but they were clean. Now with the new bathrooms the park charges you not only to stay at the park AND the park pass, but now they charge you to take a shower as well. They should not charge a person staying in a tent so much if they are going to charge for taking a shower. Some people may not think that's a big deal, but going there for so long with the setup they had before to now paying the same for a tent site and with the addition of having to put in more money for something we got for free before is a little frustrating. I don't think that's going to stop us from staying there again because we do like the area. I would have given it 10 stars if it wasn't for that. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Tent.

This park has only 4 full hook-up sites. The others are electric only with scattered water spigots. We camped in Site 1, which was full hook-up site near the office. The water pressure was very low, and the site was gravel and not particularly level. On the plus side, there is a very nice nature trail in the campground, and two nearby natural areas that offer good hiking and birdwatching. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This state park was VERY expensive at $28 for an RV site with electric plus the $7 entrance fee. The park had been updated with newer restrooms that were clean and close to most sites, but only 4 sites had full hook-ups. The loops are a bit tight, and some sites are not level, we chose one that was. The rules are not enforced. Neighboring dogs were not picked up after. Another group here was loud until nearly 12 a.m. We love state parks, but we would have been better off in an RV park with some shade and management for the price.

Would have rated 10, if only they had full hook-ups and WiFi. There are 3 spots on higher ground with full hook-ups, but the rest only had electric. The roads were excellent and it was easy to drive our motorhome around. The clerk at the office said it is a "dwarf" forest and the trees don't get more than 12 feet, although I saw a few that I'd say were pushing 20. Our campsite was on a bluff above the lake. The site was gravel and quite level. Easy satellite access since the trees were not too tall. Very open private sites, neighbors 30' away on all sides. Quite, beautiful and clean. They are strict about dogs always being on leash. I would have liked trash cans more available, as they request you use the dumpsters near the campground entrance which was a ways away to carry the "doggie bag" every time! I did have very good internet access using my ATT i-phone tether, with a full signal and 3G. The campground was very peaceful and beautiful, we loved it.

We've enjoyed our stay here. It's a beautiful setting up on the hillside overlooking Trinidad Lake. Not at all crowded this time of year. Our gravel site is level and large enough for our 25' Airstream. There are plenty of larger sites available. Our site is electric only. Power is strong and steady. Verizon service is a little sketchy out here, but no problem with a booster. Also no worries setting up a satellite dish. The horizon is wide open. Nice hiking trails and scenic overlooks abound. Pricing is a little steep. The $20 is base rate/day for the electric only site we're in. Add to that a $10 registration fee and an additional $7/day park parking pass and it quickly adds up. I am not complaining, however. If we intend to keep these parks open, I believe that we, the end users, should bear the burden of cost. We will stay here again.
