“Gorgeous Views and plenty of spaces”

Reviewed Sep 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Came in off season, there were only 3ish other camps we had to share with, but we were respectful of each other, and there was so much space. I'd venture say around a dozen or so established firepits, so take your pick. No moon the night we arrived, so we got to see some beautiful stars with ZERO light pollution. Drove a loaded down 2W... more

Nice place to camp, however the reservoir itself is actually private property we found out. The campsites were great with awesome views

“Beautiful and Quiet! ”

Reviewed Jun 29, 2018

Overall Rating

This was almost 5 stars! What brought it down was accessibility to the site we chose (which we definitely liked the best for us). We do manage to get into some pretty rough spots and the TV is 4x4. Once we set up we were happy. We found a spring in the town of Allenspark that was a cool place to fill some water jugs. There is zero cell... more

“Perfect & Free”

Reviewed Oct 08, 2017

Easy access in our rented Ford Econovan. Not many people around in early Oct. Good proximity to RMNP. Got here around 4, made a fire, listened to the coyotes, watched the Stellar Jays, went to bed, woke up for an incredible sunrise then spent the day exploring the RMNP. No complaints really!

“Great morning views, a bit of a drive. ”

Reviewed Aug 13, 2017

Overall Rating

In the morning on the way down this was really beautiful, but on the way up we had a thick layer of fog and narrow roads in our van that doesn't enjoy going up hill. Spots aren't super clear, you aren't supposed to go to the water (do not trespass signs) and we got caught in a sketchy area for the van at one point (might have been our ... more

My family and I camped here after finding that all the campsites in the were fully booked. We were wanting to camp at Pawnee and do some hiking at Brainard Lake. We saw Beaver Reservoir on here and decided to give it a shot. So glad we did! It is right around the corner from the road that takes you to Brainard Lake! We used the GPS coo... more

Great spot. Pretty private. Little noise (occasional cars driving in and out and we heard few gun shots early afternoon.) We had to clean up a good bit of trash, but aside from that no complaints. There aren't too many spots for bigger rigs, but we found about four we could fit in. The reservoir is private. We have sprint and ha... more

“Great boondocking, no cell service”

Reviewed Feb 19, 2015

Overall Rating

Just North of Ward Colorado is Beaver Reservoir, accessible by a well graded dirt road (turn off Hwy 7 at sign for Boy Scout Camp, County Rd 96). Roughly 1.5 miles down the dirt road is the National Forest Boundary, which extends all the way to the reservoir (but not around it). This gives about a 1 mile stretch of dirt road in which b... more
