If breathtaking views are what you seek, staying at Lake Fork Campground will get you what you need! The three-tiered facility overlooks the waters of Blue Mesa Reservoir and across to the shores of the Black Canyon -- a staggering formation created by thousands of years of river flow.
Many of the sites here are asphalt, with two tent areas provided off of the upper level. While there are no hookup options provided here, during the summer months, visitors have access to flushing toilets and coin-operated showers located just off the grounds. A dump station is accessible on-site, as well as drinking water and an amphitheater. If you plan on visiting during the colder months, fees to stay here are $8 per night, but during summer, the rate doubles. For those that like to plan ahead, reserving your site raises the price by $3 per night.
While you're here, you'll likely want to take to the water! Motorized boats get the okay on this reservoir, meaning this place is a prime spot for water skiing and wakeboarding. If calmer watersports are more your thing, head out on a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard and absorb the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you. Nearby, you and your pooch can go for a trek on the Warner Point Nature Trail and see how many prairie dogs you can spot! Or, just stick by the sites and explore the ponderosa pine forest that grows naturally in this canyon.
Doggos are welcome throughout the campground, though you do have to keep them leashed during your stay. Also, it is advised that you never leave your dog unattended due to soaring summer temperatures that can be fatal to a dog left in a car or without water. Remember to be a good advocate for our canine friends by cleaning up any messes your woofer leaves behind and dispose of it in the trash receptacles.
