Granby and Grand Lake Area Campgrounds Professional Review and Guide

"Busy and popular are the best words to describe this area on the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, and for good reason. The list of recreational activities available here is long and includes sailing, bicycling, golfing, rafting, sailboarding, tennis, and, of course, fishing.

Add to all that a string of gemstone lakes surrounded by camping sites, tucked away in the pines, and you’ve got a wonderful family destination. Oh, and there’s always Rocky Mountain National Park if you get tired of the lakes. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Rocky Mountain National Park: Timber Creek, Denver Creek, Lake Granby, Arapaho Bay, Stillwater, Shadow Mountain Reservoir: Green Ridge."

Lake Granby is is one of the larger mountain reservoirs near the Denver area, with all the water activities that that brings. Coupled with Shadow Mountain and Grand Lake, there is a very large boating surface, good fishing and even several good beaches. (Or at least what pass for beaches in Colorado) There are also a lot of trails in the area, some 4-wheeling, and other outdoor activities. Although the setting of Lake Granby is not quite as spectacular as that of Lake Dillon, which is further south, it is a much more affordable area to visit, and has more camping available. Grand Lake, which is a natural lake, is much more scenic (although small when compared to the reservoirs.) Both Grand Lake and the town of Granby offer all of the amenities that a day tripper or camper would hope for.
