Overall Rating

Great first come campground. Our site and a number of others had views of the lake. We launched our kayaks and paddle board right below our site. Beautiful trail along the lake which connected to other trails. No AT&T or Verizon. About 4 miles away was the visitor center which had free WiFi. Lots of lakes for fishermen. Free campsite on the other side of the highway available but were occupied by off road vehicles and trailers. They were logging in one area of the Mesa taking out damaged trees.

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.
