Enjoy casting out to our local Denny Lake where you can enjoy catching fish. Our town lake is stocked with bass annually. You can access this lake right from our campground.
3 Acre Enclosed Dog Park
Your pet is going to love this 3 acre enclosed dog park with three separate entrances with spring loaded gates to ensure your pets safety.
1.5 Mile Hiking Trail
With direct access to the lake and hiking trail, it's a great way to stretch your legs after a long commute to our beautiful area. The 1.5 mile hiking trail will take you around Denny Lake. This is a great trail for walking or jogging and is pet friendly.
There are so many great opportunities to capture the beauty that this area offers. From the Sleeping Ute Mountains, the sunsets casting various colors off the the cliffs of Mesa Verde, or the reflection of the sunrise bursting from the sky on Denny Lake right from our campground.
Kayak or Canoe on Denny Lake
After settling in from your drive, pull out your kayak or canoe and get in the lake. It's a great way to change gears and enjoy the outdoors.
Take a dip in our refreshing pool or feel free to sit poolside and take in some wonderful mountain air and sunshine. There's nothing quite like it.
Let the kids unleash their pent up energy after you arrive. There's always fun to be had when climbing, crawling, or sliding on the playground equipment.
There's nothing like shooting hoops or playing a game or two. Our court is located at the far end of our campground, near Denny Lake for your convenience.
Relax and play a game or two of horseshoes during your stay.
There are so many trails you can trek in and around our area. See one of our Campground Staff for suggestions.
