Blue Lake Campground

Blue Lake Campground, located at 10,440 feet in elevation, has a beautiful little lake ideal for fishing.

This rustic campground has 16 campsites, each with a table and fire ring. Some are shaded; others provide full sunlight. An on-site camp host offers firewood bundles for sale. Vault toilets and drinking water are available. No electric or septic hook-ups are available. Both reservation and first-come, first-served sites are available.

Aside from the excellent fishing, there are several trailheads leading into the Sangre de Cristo mountains nearby. Bear Lake is about 1 mile further in.

A well-marked trail system between Bear Lake and Blue Lake is open to foot and horse traffic. Across the road from the campground is FSR 436, a rough jeep road that provides access to Trinchera Peak where Big Horn Sheep are often seen.

This area will only continue to stay open to the public if we (all of us!) commit to Care for Colorado and Leave no Trace.  This remote campground only has vault toilets, so plan ahead and plan your poos!  Learn about how to be a “happy camper” so that everyone, for years and years to come, can enjoy this amazing gem of a lake in Spanish Peaks Country.
