Overview

Overview

Lake Fork Campground sits in the Rio Grande Forest, 40 miles northwest of Antonito, Colorado. The campground is a true getaway from any city, and requires an 18-mile drive on a gravel road. This high elevation campground boasts limitless beauty with mountain peaks, alpine wildlife spotting and several varieties of birds.

Natural Features:

The campground is located in south central Colorado on the banks of the Conejos River. It is shaded by spruce, aspen and a few cottonwoods and willows at an elevation of 9,500 feet.

A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area, including black bears, deer and marmots. Wildflowers dot the region, creating colorful landscapes for photography enthusiasts.

Recreation:

The campground is convenient to several trails, such as Lake Fork to Big Lake and Conejos Peak to Blue Lake.

The Conejos River is a Gold Medal River, meaning it offers the greatest potential for trophy trout fishing. Rainbow and brown trout are the most common species in the river.

Facilities:

Some campsites overlook the river. There is one centrally located drinking water spigot. All parking spurs are gravel. Firewood can be purchased on-site. No electric hookups are available.

Campers will find an old-fashioned steel tub bath at Brummel's Rocky Mountain Lodge about 10 miles south.

Nearby Attractions:

Take in spectacular views of the Conejos Canyon and River along Forest Road 250.
