A dense forest of Engelmann spruce and lodgepole pine covers the campground, providing ample shade. Summer wildflowers dot the landscape. Summer temperatures range from 65-75 degrees during the day to 40-50 degrees at night.

Recreation:

Lost Lake offers rainbow trout fishing, canoeing and kayaking in a beautiful setting. The lake is open only to non-motorized watercraft.

Many hiking, biking, horse and off-road vehicle trails crisscross this beautiful region, including the Crystal Lake and Bald Mountain Trails, both of which begin nearby.

Mirror Lake Campground is just up the road and offers weekend amphitheater programs, as well as more great canoeing and fishing opportunities.

The campground contains several single-family sites, all with picnic tables and campfire rings. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. A water filling station is located at the entrance. Roads and parking spurs are paved.
