Description

Added by Dan Toups

Bear Lake Campground is a great campground to take the family. Sitting under the picturesque Spanish Peaks, Bear Lake offers spectacular views, open campgrounds, great fishing and gentle hikes through Colorado meadows.It is named Bear Lake for a reason. Keep your food locked up and dispose of your trash in the bear-proof garbage cans.

There are two main campgrounds with enough room for RVs. A secret for dispersed campers, if the campgrounds are full, turn south on the dirt road by the lower campground and you can drop a tent anywhere. Caution as this turns into an extreme 4x4 trail within half a mile.

From Walsenburg, take CO-12 E to Co Rd 422. Head west on Co Rd 422 and follow the signs 5.2 miles to Bear Lake Campground. During summer months, the campground is accessible by any type of vehicle, even motorcycles.
