A small rustic site four miles south of Georgetown along Guanella Pass Road, Clear Lake Campground’s visitors come to give weary screen-tired eyes a break and breathe in the mountain air. Camp at an astonishing elevation of 10,000 feet and collect dead or down wood for your fire. Additionally firewood is available for sale from the campground host. Georgetown has been used for filming in several television shows and movies. It’s also home of the Sonic Bloom Festivalevery June.

This campground was great mostly because of its location. I love the little town Idaho Springs about 20 minutes away (if you go there, get Beau Jo's pizza--it will change your life). The drive up to the campground was gorgeous (Guanella Pass). We stayed there early July and were freezing still, so dress warm! The bathrooms there are more like porter potties, so I recommend just going behind a tree to avoid the stench! Would love to stay here again during my trips to the colorful Colorado!
