Camp and Fish at Loch Lomond

Colorado Loch Lomond

Added by

Loch Lomond offers amazing lake views with plenty of hiking trails close to camp and great fishing. If you have a 4x. 4, you can drive up to the lake.

The trail to Loch Lomond is very rocky. I suggest a high clearance 4x4 vehicle (I did see a small SUV and a Subaru..Not sure how they did it!!!). There are a few campsites at the lake and several along the way. I set up camp by the lake but had to move because the wind was so intense. I recommend camping below the tree line. This is dispersed camping and there are no fees to camp here.

You can fish at Loch Lomond but without a kayak the fish and game wardens recommend hiking to Reynolds Lake and Steuart Lake.

How to Get There

Beautiful campsites in amazing landscape

This is one of my weekday-overnight goto places! There's a gate on the road up to the lake that opens July 15th each year and I believe it closes September 30th (not 100% certain). When the gate is closed you will have to hike up to the camping area (LOTS of dispersed sites), which is about a 15min hike. Past these amazing campsites you'll continue to the lake for another 10 minutes or so.

Great Day Or Overnight Trip

The road leading to the lakes offers lots of great dispersed camping for big groups. We hiked around the left side of the lake then up and enjoyed a cheese plate #channingandthecheeseplate. Trail was a little hard to find in spots. Great day trip or quick getaway from the city with out of town visitors
