Camper Alert: We have just been informed by the Bureau of Reclamation that Flatiron Reservoir will be drawn down to near empty beginning mid-July 2017 to repair infrastructure related to the Colorado-Big Thompson Project water delivery system. Please be aware that there will be little to no water in Flatiron Reservoir from mid- to late July to the second half of November 2017. Pinewood Reservoir may also see below normal water levels and greater fluctuation as a result of this project. Carter Lake should not be affected.

Larimer County Natural Resources has over 400 campsites in a variety of beautiful locations in northern Colorado. Our campsites vary from electric and full hookup sites for your RV to walk to and standard sites perfect for tent camping. Please keep in mind that our campgrounds fill spring, summer and fall weekends, so plan ahead – or come during the week! We hope you have a wonderful camping trip in Larimer County!

You can make reservations from 180 days to 1 day in advance of the arrival date at www.larimercamping.com or by calling the reservation call center at 1-800-397-7795.

Sites that are not reserved become available that day as first-come, first-served for people who are physically present at the parks. These sites can not be held, nor can they be guaranteed over the phone.

Most weekdays (Mondays through Thursdays), there are usually sites available at all campgrounds as first-come, first-served. November through April, almost all sites are available first-come, first-served if you choose not to make a reservation.
