Description

Oh man, this is one seriously great piece of camping in Eldorado. Lovers Leap Campground is known for its picturesque sites and for being right nearby to some of the best rock climbing in this neck of the woods. Only steps away from Lovers Leap, spent your nights camping under the stars, and your days climbing up some craggy rock faces. Hmm, what could possibly be better?

My boyfriend and I have camped here more times than I can count, both with friends and on our own. It's definitely not for those looking for a campground with lots of amenities, but it has everything we personally need! There's a good mix of sunny and shady sites to fit whatever you may be looking for, and has great access to lots of trad climbing and a couple of beautiful hikes. Definitely our most visited campground!
