Spruce Grove Campground

Lake George, Colorado

Overview

The beautiful Spruce Grove campground is positioned beside large rock outcroppings on Tarryall Creek. Magnificent hiking trails to the Lost Creek Wilderness Area are just steps away from the Creek Bridge. Located just 14 miles outside Lake George, Colorado, the area's wild inhabitants include black bear, mule deer, elk, bighorn sheep and bobcats.

Recreation

From the campground, hikers and horseback riders can traverse the Lizard Rock Trail, a 2.5-mile trail that passes Hankins Pass Trail and intersects with the Brookside-McCurdy Trail. Along the route are interesting rock formations that some say look like a lizard. The extensive Brookside-McCurdy Trail is a former pack trail in the Lost Creek Wilderness that can be backpacked in five to seven days. Anglers seek rainbow and brown trout in both the creek and nearby lake. Due to the limited parking within the campground, anglers and day hickers are asked to park outside of the campground. A recommended fishing spot is 11 miles away at the Tarryall Reservoir.

Facilities

Spruce Grove offers nearly 30 reservable campsites. Parking aprons fit RVs up to 35 feet in length and a maximum of eight guests are allowed to stay. Drinking water from a hand pump, trash collection and accessible vault toilets are among the amenities at Spruce Grove. Each site comes with a picnic table and a campfire ring.

Natural Features

The campground is perched along Tarryall Creek at an elevation of 8,600 feet, near Bayou Salado Reservoir. Campsites have little to no shade but are surrounded by mature spruce, aspen and plenty of good looking boulders. The area sits at the base of South Tarryall Peak and just north is McCurdy Mountain with a peak of 12,173 feet.

Nearby Attractions

Visitors enjoy the many great trails in the Lost Creek Wilderness, a 119,790-acre stretch of split boulders, rounded granite domes and knobs, rare granite arches, and forested scenic overlooks.
