Jackson Lake State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Jackson Lake is ranked one of the top 15 park beaches by Reserve America. A large, warm-water reservoir, Jackson lake is an important feature of the northeastern Colorado high plains landscape. Local farmers depend on its water to irrigate their lands. But before these waters grace the fields, they provide scenic recreational opportunities to all who are lucky enough to come this way. The Rocky Mountains will always be a draw, but this relaxing state park should not be overlooked.

Campers can stay overnight in a slew of shoreline campsites while boating, sailing, swimming, and fishing on the 2,700-acre lake. A walk-in tent camping area and lakeside beaches make this oasis even more appealing."

Very quiet campground, lots of lakes and reservoirs within easy driving distance. Very remote so pack everything you'll need for your stay. Pine beetle devastation is the big problem here, all pine trees have been removed from the site, making it feel a bit barren. We brought our 2 year old and this was a great place to introduce him to camping as there were very few people around for him to bother. Definitely recommended for peace and quiet, but be prepared to bring your own shade as the Pine Beetles have forced the forest service to remove all trees but Aspen in this campground.
