Forest Service Camprground. Reserve online:
Welcome to Aspen Acres Campground, located 25 min from I-25 alongside of the 103 mile Colorado Frontier Pathway and Scenic Byway. The Byway stretches through the beauty of South Central Colorado and the San Isabel National Forest. We are located three miles above Lake San Isabel, a 40 acre stocked lake tucked in the mountains. Our altitude is 9200 ft, which make summer high temperatures average in the 70's, and nighttime lows dip into the 50's, great for sleeping. Oh, did we mention that you don't have to drive over a mountain pass to get here? Safe travels.
Our R.V. sites are all full hook-ups (30 amp), and stretch around the campground, leaving many options for different types of sites, some farther away tucked up into the mountain, or down closer to our large rec hall and shower house area. Our cabins are also spread across the campground, some nestled privately in the woods. Check out our two very private loft cabins. Besides the rec hall and the Lounge, we have an open pavilion with cooking grills on the campground. Since we border the National Forest, our campfire policy complies with the Forest Service, meaning we allow campfires when they do. We have a shower house and laundry room (for long term visitors, 1 week or more), which we pride ourselves on its cleanliness. A restaurant can be found three miles down the road by the lake.
Bordering the San Isabel National Forest leaves plenty of things open for the adventurous to do. Trails stretch throughout the Forest, leading to many beautiful peaks and mountain valleys. Whether on foot, mountain bike, horse, or motorcycle, the trails offer much for many. You may even see a black bear rambling along, or some of the many other animals that live in the mountains. But then again for those who would rather relax on their vacations, the quiet atmosphere of the mountains and cool breezes make for lawn chair relaxing. And if the weather isn't cooperating, you can relax in our quiet Lounge area and read a book or magazine. We look forward to seeing you!
