Price paid reflects Senior Pass. This park is a hidden gem! Yes, it was damaged by winds in 2013 and there are a lot of trees down in the lower loop making it unusable/closed. The remaining sites are all really nice, as USFS campgrounds go. Trees that were damaged have, for the most part been cut down and removed. It's a lot more open than it used to be, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's plenty of space between sites, and a good mix of back in and pull thru sites. All have electricity, which was unexpected. Vault toilets in several locations. Easy access to Bellaire Lake itself, which is beautiful! Lots of folks come there for the fishing, which, from conversations with folks fishing, can be a mixed bag...some days good/some days not so good. One can easily hike around the lake. This CG is a good alternative to West and Dowdy Lakes that are closer to Red Feather. It's about 5 miles south of the main/paved road, and is dirt road access, but not a problem. There's also hiking trail access nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Most importantly to note -- fill your tanks before you come to this park. There are water faucets at the bathrooms, but they are NOT threaded to allow you to fill with a garden hose. Road #69 is dirt. The south end is very, very steep & crooked. The camp host was very nice & helpful. Price reflects senior pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground. We stayed in site #23, which is lakeside. Several spots are, actually. We had a large pull through site (we have a 34ft 5th wheel) with 30 amp electric service, no sewer or water at the site (vault toilets and water faucet nearby). CG was very clean and the hosts were extremely nice. Will stay here again!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here and really enjoyed ourselves. Our campsite was overlooking the lake and it was beautiful. Since this is part of Arapaho Roosevelt National Forest the area was lovely. Our campsite had electric hookups, no water but water spickets were located throughout the campground. A nice hiking trail goes around West Lake and also connects over to Dowdy Lake, which was fun to hike. Only vaulted toilets are available and they could be cleaned better. Shady trees throughout the campground. Each site has a table and fire ring. All in all: we really enjoyed our camp-out here. **IMPORTANT: Make sure to get reservations early. This campground fills up 4 months in advance for the entire summer, for weekends! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a beautiful Forest Service Park up in the Roosevelt National Forest. Several sites sit real close to West Lake, which is a very nice little lake. A lot of people come there to fish. Most of the sites are pretty large, but only electrical. This year they removed the hose bib from the water faucets, so if you wanted to fill your camper's tank, you had to cut the hose to push it over the end of the faucet. There is no dump station either, so you need to plan on driving back into Fort Collins or so to dump your tanks. Overall a very nice relaxing place to go for a long weekend.
