This area of the Flat Tops is gorgeous and if you have an RV, Bear Lake Campground is a great place to go. The sites are very wooded and they have a good amount of space in between the sites. It is actually a big loop and easy to drive through, some sites you can't even see anyone around you. There are 2 camp hosts here that are very helpful if you are looking for hiking info or anything at all. One thing I like about this place, is that if it is full, there is also plenty of camping outside of Bear Lake. And, I also like how the area has 3 different reservoirs to fish. (Yamcolo Reservoir, Bear River, and Stillwater Reservoir.) And a trailhead for 3 popular hikes is near here as well. The campground is separate from the lake, however it is only a short walk out of the woods and to the lake. There is no electric hook ups, but there is a bathroom and water. We camped at Bear Lake Campground, Routt National Forest in a Tent.

Without reservations, nice camping spots can be hard to find. We took a chance, following a fly fisherman's advice and traveled the 14 miles of asphalt and gravel roads back into the Bear River area. We chose to stay at the Bear Lake campground, one of three along the Bear River - no reservation needed. Other single sites along the road/river were also open. While not level, the site needed little adjustment. Quiet, quiet, quiet. Trout filled waters flow below the dam. We will return. We camped at Bear Lake Campground, Routt National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is at 9,700' and twelve miles up a somewhat rough gravel road. It is located in a mixed spruce/fir forest with mostly shaded sites. Great trout fishing at three lakes in the area (Bear Lake is 100 yds. from the campground) as well as numerous hiking trails, including the infamous Devil's Causeway. Sites are wide and level; campground was refurbished in 2002. Water is from a mountain spring and was great. Vault toilets are new and clean. We camped at Bear Lake Campground, Routt National Forest in a Fifth Wheel.
