As of May 2018, we have updated our Reservations system. Campers no longer need an account to make a reservation. To cancel a reservation, please call the Visitor Center at 303-838-5496.

All campsites must be reserved online. Sites are not available for booking at the Visitor Center. Upon arrival, all visitors must check in at the Visitor Center.

ONLINE RESERVATIONS: Reservations (except for groups) can only be made 3 months in advance. If you are part of a group and would like to make a reservation for one of our large group sites or through our Advanced Booking Service, please see our Group Information page.

We provide year-round access for camping and day use. Whether you’re interested in an overnight stay or just plan to visit during the day, we offer a wide variety of activities: from camping to fishing, swimming and canoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and more. In winter, activities also include ice fishing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

Wellington Lake, one of our greatest attractions, is a privately-owned natural wilderness area. The 167-acre lake is managed as a trophy fishery with an emphasis on conservation.

Just a short drive’s distance from Denver and Colorado Springs, we welcome all visitors looking for a relaxing mountain getaway in the great outdoors.
