Campground amenities include drinking water (hand pump), vault toilets and trash collection. Each site also has a table, fire ring and grate. A firewood vendor is also on site.
The campground offers easy access to boating and fishing on Turquoise Lake. Hikers will like the 6.4-mile Turquoise Lake Trail. Other activities include mountain biking, backpacking, swimming, picnicking, hunting, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. The historic mining town of Leadville is also worth a visit!
