“We love this campground!”

Reviewed Jul 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This was actually our 3rd time staying here. It's on the west side of Turquoise Lake, so less crowded and more quiet than the other campgrounds on the east side of the lake. Site 18 is our absolute favorite site! You can't see anyone else and its extremely quiet. We were able to walk to the lake for fly fishing and kayaking. The Turquoise Lake trail (right off the campground) is moderate and has beautiful views of the lake. You are also near hiking trails off Hagerman Pass and near the trailhead of Timberline Trail with access to the Colorado Trail. You are about 10 miles from Leadville, so it is a little drive to go into town, but we don't mind that. The camp hosts are lovely and all facilities were spotless. There are vault toilets and potable water access. Cell service at our site was not good, but on the other side of the road we could get 4G with 3 bars.

“Nice campground with great views at the end of the road.”

Reviewed Sep 05, 2016

Overall Rating

Our campsite was pull through side and was quite big. We had nice views of the mountains from our campsite but the view at the end of the road was outstanding, which only a few camp sites had for the sites. The campground had pit toilets, which were clean.

We hiked both the north side of the Turquoise Lake trail and Timberline Lake trail. Both were very scenic.

There are several other campgrounds on Turquoise Lake. We checked them all out and like Molly Brown the best after our campground.
