Overall Rating:

An Army Corp of Engineer Park, John Martin Reservoir State Park is an oasis on the plains of southeastern Colorado. Located in the Lower Arkansas River Valley, visitors come to John Martin to take advantage of modern campgrounds, great fishing, un-crowded boating waters, diverse wildlife, and to see historical signs of the past. Camping is available at Lake Hasty Campground and Point Campground, with a total of 213 sites. Lake Hasty Campground consists of 109 campsites with 30 and 50 amp electrical service at each site. Water hydrants are available in the park but there are no water or sewer connections at the sites. A four-lane dump station with long approach and departure is in the park. There are two restrooms in the park with one supporting showers; showers are pay per use - $.50 for first 3 minutes, $.25 each additional 1.5 minutes. There is a playground in the park along with a large open field surrounded by campsites. About half the sites are shaded. Sites 31 ? 38 are on Lake Hasty but may cause some parking issues for large rigs with multiple slide outs. This is due to trees on one side and a pavilion covering the picnic table on the other. Park is big rig friendly with several long camping sites and more than ample spacing between sites. The Point Campground is for basic camping and has no hookups.
