Bear Lake Campground - Search Nearby - 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.

Incredible

This incredible experience was one of many i had in my time in Colorado. I want to visit again during the summer.

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
