Great hide-away state park. Had two campgrounds with hookups. Just happened to drive by and see it and drove in. We used our Sr. Parks Pass and it is really cheap. We were in a dry camp area, thus $8 per night. $12 per night in full hook-ups. Reservations can be made in advance by lot you want. We were right next to a river/stream. Beautiful. Camp host was wonderful and an inspirational lady to all she met. You pay on the honor system as you arrive at the bulletin boards at the entrance to the park. The rates were not clear as to type of Sr. card that gives a discount. Our Camp Host helped us. Bishop Castle is 30 minutes west and a great place to stop and see. We will go back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very pretty campground above the lake. Lots of trails down around the lake and while we just stayed one night, there seemed to be a lot to do near by. The campground hosts were very nice and warned us about recent bear activity. You must fill up your water tanks prior to arrival as they do not allow you to connect to the water spigots located throughout the campground. Restrooms are pit toilets but modern and clean. They were also plentiful, the highest ratio of toilets per campground I have seen. We stayed here late September and the Aspens were quite beautiful, some of the best we saw during our vacation in Colorado. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This wonderful campground is west of the lake and up on the hill so you have great views of the lake and the mountains as well. Lake Isabel Lodge is a short hike if you have family without camping facilities. There are three other campgrounds in the park with one being a group site, one being completely on top of one another and the third, St Charles, being one of the top one hundred in the state of Colorado as defined by a respected guide book. Though the reservation site states the hookups are 15 AMP, they are actually all 30 AMP. We had site 25, which is one of the top requested as it is isolated and shady. It does not have a view of the lake but the shade and lack of neighbors more than made up for it. I believe we heard site 16 is also very popular as are 26 and 27. The camp host was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our time there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
