Goose Lake Campground is what C+C Music Factory were talking about when they sang about “things that makes you go hmmm.” There are a crazy amount of recreational opportunities available and even though elevation is a challenging 6,700 feet, you’re unlikely to notice because you’ll be too distracted by the scenery to think about the workout you’re getting. Just be prepared to supply your own water. Even the best time of your life doesn’t make you immune to dehydration.

This camp spot is so fun with a (bigger) group of friends. There are at least 10 spots (drive up) surrounding the lake and also easy access off the main road. We brought floaties, kayaks, and SUPs to take out on the lake. There is plenty of hiking and mountain biking actives near by. Do not miss the fire tower hike!! There are bathrooms available close walking distance from all the sites but bring your own water! The sites are clean and well equipped with fire pits and picnic tables.
