This lovely campground is spread out in a lightly forested alpine meadow along Rabbit Ears pass, above Steamboat Springs. The wildflowers were beautiful! Many of the sites are a bit sloped, although we only needed a bit of side to side leveling on ours. The spaces have good separation from the neighbors. It gets quite cold at night, even in summer, so be prepared. We would be happy to stay there again.

Approaching the campground from Highway 40, Google maps had our position a bit wrong, and we thought we had missed the turn for Dumont. Continuing on, we came to the correct road, which has a clear sign.

Dumont Lake doesn't offer much more over most of the free camping all around this area. It is the closest campground to Rabbit Ears Peak if that is your thing, and a tiny lake (not really worth even putting a canoe in). Few trees exist in the campground itself with gave me the feeling of sitting out in the open. Not bad if you rely on solar, but it could get pretty hot in the sun otherwise.

The sites are nice and large, with table an fire ring. Water is available in the campground (not at each site) via a manual pump. Vault toilets are there as well. Beyond that, not much more to speak of.

Just an inkling of Verizon there. A booster may make it a usable signal.
