Overview

Overview

Round Mountain is a small, rustic campground that sits just 6 miles from Lake George, 11 miles from the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and 15 miles to Eleven Mile Reservoir. It is also within a short drive to hiking and biking trails, fly fishing, wildlife watching and birding.

Natural Features:

Round Mountain, at elevation 8,500 feet, sits near Blue Mountain, Stoll Mountain and Martland Peak. Campsites are widely spaced in woods of ponderosa pine and young aspen. The high altitude creates mild summer days and chilly nights. Aspen trees create a beautiful sunny yellow hue in fall.

Interesting wild inhabitants of the area include porcupines, mule deer, beavers and chipmunks. At night, the area makes for incredible stargazing.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy Lake George for lake fishing and prime waterfowl watching. Avid anglers come here in winter for ice fishing. The nearby Riverside Campground offers access to the Hardrock Trail. The 1.5-mile trail is open to hikers and mountain bikers, and provides interpretive signs about native flora and fauna.

Facilities:

Round Mountain offers about 15 reservable campsites. Amenities include picnic tables, vault toilets, campfire rings and a parking area.

Nearby Attractions:

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, about a 15 minute drive from Round Hill, boasts 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.
