Designed for low-key recreation and an ideal place for families, popular Lost Lake Campground is all about making the most of what Mother Nature has to offer. Go fishing for some trout, indulge in some non-motorized boating, or enjoy a group hike along Beckwith Pass or Three Lakes Trail. Swing by in mid-to-late summer, when the wildflowers are bursting with color. Lost Lake also provides a few equestrian sites for those who’d like to enjoy the surrounding area on horseback.

Gunnison and Chaffee counties have my heart! This campground wax so peaceful and gorgeous. Lots of wildlife crossed our paths during the two days we spent here to recharge before a multi-day hiking trip. You can’t go wrong with any area in the Gunnison National Forest. Be sure to hit Uncompahgre, San Isabel, San Juan, Rio Grande, Black Canyon, and Arapaho as well! Each year I circle through all the National Forests in CO because, well, why not? It’s the most wonderful and magical place for me to work remotely.
