This is a lovely San Isabel National Forest Campground on Turquoise Lake. Being a NFS Campground, the “services” are limited to vault toilets which were very clean. There is s NFS dump station not too far from the campground. There is a $10 dump fee and the fresh water hose doesn’t have a fitting to attach to a hose and we the campground didn’t have a faucet we could connected to. Just a few of the campsites overlook the lake; most are an easy walk to the lake. The sites are wooded and spaced nicely apart, but there isn’t much visual privacy as most of the trees are tall pines. Sites have gravel surface which was freshly raked before we arrived. The driveways are pretty level. Almost all of the sites are back in. A good location for tents and small to medium size trailers or RVs. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring (firewood is available for purchase). There isn’t s playground or a designated beach area. We had good cell phone service. We camped at Molly Brown in a Motorhome.

Almost all the parks in the San Isabel NF is worth a stop to see if it meets your needs, quiet and the views of the surrounding mountains is simply breath taking. If you need electric, water and sewer hookups keep on driving. We camped at Molly Brown in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds and we have stayed here many times for family reunions of sorts. Very busy on weekends and recommend reservations for the best sites all days. Upper sites are better protected from lake wind and still an easy walk to the lake. Close drive to the boat ramp. Disappointed the govt removed the better restroom facilities making this a lower class facility. We camped at Molly Brown in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $18. No hookups, but unthreaded water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Flush toilets and sinks in the bathrooms, no showers. Camp host said the campground will be converted to pit toilets only next year, which is unfortunate. Oh well. Sites are very well spaced and almost all are level. There were plenty of nice vacant sites to choose from mid-week, but almost every site was reserved for the weekend, so plan accordingly. We camped at Molly Brown in a Motorhome.

My family of 5 (small children) camped here this past weekend and it was a very nice trip. The good. Shaded, spacious, quiet sites; the bathroom has flush toilets, 2 stalls, sink with running (cold) water and a mirror, and was very clean. The view of lake, great fishing with no bugs this weekend whatsoever (too cold). There were few people. I was surprised how many empty sites there were considering I'd read how popular this lake was. The bad: cold, cold, cold! Windy, windy, windy! (The wind comes and goes though, it was not consistent, rather an on and off situation.) The lake is not exactly next to the campsites (we were in site #11). You have to walk down a ways and some parts are rocky, not huge rocks, just a lot of medium sized rocks, but lots of sandy areas too. Too far and too hard to carry our paddle boat down to the lake. So that was a bummer and plus, it was probably too windy for us to manage the paddle boat. It rained (more like sprinkled) but wasn't too bad; but as we were leaving it had started snowing!! So, my suggestion is, be prepared for much colder weather than you imagined and really bundle up at night. I certainly expected the cold, but not to that extent. Our heater actually ran so hard that it exhausted our battery over 2 nights. We woke up the second morning with smoke coming out of our mouths! The clothes I had brought for my children to play outside and get dirty in, ended up being extra layers for sleeping (which only helped them not to freeze rather than made them hot) and I did not have hardly any clothes for them to wear outside (myself included). So, we are looking forward to going back next year when we can get a good reservation, but I will plan accordingly for the weather. We camped at Molly Brown in a Tent Trailer.
