Great campground. Nice and quiet. A few trails around the campground and lake that are easy in experience level. There are a lot of mosquitoes in the summer so bring plenty of spray or candles. Firewood bundles are available for purchase from the camp host. This campground is directly in between downtown Durango and Silverton. It's a great jumping off point for both cities, the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, and all other activities in the area.

Loved this lakeside campground, camped here in october, no host, no bugs but lots of hunters. Lovely spot right on the lake, Hermosa is a hood place to shop for farm fresh goodies and the amazing million doller highway to Silverton makes for an awesome day trip.
