“Gorgeous Setting - Easy to Get In and Out, Private, Kinda Quiet, Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed Mar 31, 2018
We stayed the better part of a week at this beautiful Grand Mesa lake. This campground is right on Island Lake. The area is busy but remains very quiet except when the Hells Angels roar by on the nearby highway.
The lake is full of stocked fish and a special hybrid, Splake. We caught a few but most of the fish seemed to have an allergic reaction to the flies we brought with us.
At 10,000 feet in elevation Little Bear Campground remains warm in the daytime and cool to very cool at night. Our furnace kicked on a few times at night but we remained as snug as three bugs-in-a-rug inside our camper. (We don't miss our old tent much).
The Grand Mesa is a wonderful outdoor playground for all people who enjoy what God has created. Lakes, trails, 4X4 roads, campgrounds and wilderness all play a big part of the experience. Don't forget the mosquito repellent as many times I've had to put rocks in my pockets for ballast to avoid being carried aloft by the ravenous hordes of blood sucking insects.
We will make our trip to Island Lake an annual event, but maybe late August or September when the bugs freeze off.
The host was a great guy who was friendly, helpful and very courteous.
