Choose between "ruffing" it or having some modern conveniences when you camp at John Martin Reservoir State Park. There are two campgrounds here. The Lake Hasty Campsite offers electrical hookups, running water, and pay showers, while Point Campground has basic amenities like vault toilets, tables, and grills. There's a daily fee of $28 for the former facility and $20 for the latter. This charge is in addition to the $8 per day vehicle pass. There are lots of recreational activities available for your enjoyment here.
Camp by one of Colorado's largest reservoirs in open spaces at either location. Once you set up camp, unpack your rod and go fishing for crappie, bass, trout, and a variety of other species. One pawsome spot to cast from shore is around Lake Hasty. You can go sailing or boating on the reservoir and enjoy the lake breezes. Access the water from the West Boat Ramp.
Got a hound-dog hiker at the end of that leash? There's a puptacular trail in the park. Follow the Red Shin Trail from below the dam to the Santa Fe Historic Site. The 4.5-mile pathway heads around Lake Hasty, passes canals, and goes by the Prowers-Hudnall Ranch. You might see bald eagles, antelope, prairie dogs, and other wildlife as you hike out here.
Share your adventures in this park with your furry pal. Keep your pet on a leash as long as six feet. They can come hiking with you and spend time with you in the campground, but don't take them swimming. Bring bags to scoop and throw away their poop.
Spend some quality time with your canine camper at John Martin Reservoir State Park. This facility is a pawtastic place to enjoy water and land activities. Take time to hike, bike, boat, or fish when you visit. The sites at Point Campground close over the winter, but the Lake Hasty facilities stay open year-round. All campsites in the park are available only by reservation.
