There are 4 spring fed lakes, each one fished differently according to ability with one strictly for "catch & release" fly-fishers and another reserved for our fishing Club. 20 miles to the west is the magnificent Sangre De Cristo mountain range with 8 peaks over 14,000 feet and 53 high lakes - all a wilderness area - paradise for back and horse packers.Horseback riding & rafting available.

Typical Day

There are 2 RV parks. One has 18 full hookups (water, power, sewer) under pine trees with ample space for the biggest pull-thru and slideouts. The other RV park has 10 power hookups only with a common water source. This park is used for RV clubs and family reunions who want to be in the same area. This park is also in the pine trees and has lots of unstructured space. Dump station available.
