Overview

Overview

Cove Campground is a small, primitive campground ideal for anglers and rock climbers, nestled in the Eleven Mile Canyon along the South Platte River.

Natural Features:

Cove sits along the river and is one of the closest campground to the Eleven Mile Reservoir, which spans 3,405 surface acres and 5 miles in length. Eleven Mile Canyon was cut by the South Platte River and is bordered by polished gray granite cliffs.

Recreation:

Fishing for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout is one of the most popular activities for campers. Birding and nature photography are also ideal pastimes. Rock climbers enjoy the solid walls of the canyon.

Hikers can head to the nearby Overlook Trail for breathtaking views of Eleven Mile Canyon and Eleven Mile Reservoir. Occasionally, Golden Eagles can be viewed nesting in the nearby granite cliffs and crags. Springtime brings higher chances of seeing Bald Eagles.

Facilities:

Cove Campground offers four reservable campsites. Drinking water from hand pumps, picnic tables, vault toilets and campfire rings are available.

Nearby Attractions:

Visit the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, one of the richest and most diverse fossil deposits in the world. Petrified redwood stumps up to 14 feet wide and thousands of detailed fossils of insects and plants reveal the story of a very different, prehistoric Colorado.
