Lakeside camping near Buena Vista guide

Overview

Like a city skyline, the Collegiate Peaks dominate the horizon around Buena Vista and serve as the backdrop for camping adventures in the area. Speckled amid these hills and peaks, youll also find several lakes with waterside camping spots perfect for paddling, fishing, and boating. The San Isabel National Forests Twin Lakes capture everything thats magical about this region and offer campsites like those in Lakeview Campground, right near these bodies of water. Cottonwood Lake is another regional gem with dispersed campsites and developed campgrounds dotting the national forest. Waterfront sites are also available at Eleven Mile State Park, with both RV sites and tent camping. Even if you cant find waterfront camping, water is within easy reach at many spots around Buena Vista—options include RV parks in and near town with full hookups and pull-through sites that come with wifi and dump stations. Summer is the peak season for Buena Vista campers thanks to warm lake waters, while spring and fall can be tricky due to plentiful snow.
