State Forest State Park Bockman campground is one mile north of the North Michigan Reservoir and has 52 total campsites nestled in the Roosevelt National Forest.  The campsites are quite large and can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs (up to 114 feet). There is also one group site (#345) that is designed to accommodate up to 6 tents. Bockman campground also has an amphitheater, dump station, flush toilets, showers, drinking drinking water and a horse corral for those of you camping with your horses.  You’ll also find a playground and picnic area nearby.

Each campsite has a table, fire ring and grate. You can stay up to 14 days during a 45 day period (and they can be consecutive). Six people and two vehicles are allowed per campsite. Pets are allowed (on leash). Generators are allowed from 10AM to 10PM. Firewood is also available for sale.

Bockman campground does take reservations from mid May to late September, but non-reserved sites are available on a first come/first serve basis during the summer and winter (weather permitting). In other words, the campground will let you stay at a reservable site – if it is not reserved. You’ll just need to inquire how many days it’s available. Campers should contact the park for current conditions and campground closures.

North Michigan Reservoir has a boat ramp, boating, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Other outdoor activities in the area include backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking, horseback riding, hunting and winter sports (ice fishing, snow shoeing, snow sledding, snowmobiling).

The ultimate in rugged Colorado, State Forest State Park offers visitors 71,000 acres of forest, jagged peaks, alpine lakes, wildlife and miles of trails. The park stretches along the west side of the Medicine Bow Mountains and into the north end of the Never Summer Range.

North Michigan and Ranger Lakes are two other campgrounds in State Forest State Park.

    This statement is confusing, “Bockman campground does take reservations from mid May to late September, but non-reserved sites are available on a first come/first serve basis during the summer and winter….”.
    I understand the off-peak month’s are available to first come-first served, but where are the non-reserved site’s located during the summer? Thanks!!! Roger

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Roger,
      Thanks for your comment! I’ll try and clarify in the overview. Basically though – if a reservable campsite is not reserved, then the campground will allow someone to showing up without a reservation to stay at the site.
