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.
