Description

Pinewood Reservoir is a campground in Loveland, Colorado that sits at an elevation of more than 6,500 feet on the shores of its namesake body of water. The campground is situated on a hillside, and scattered trees throughout the area block the wind that comes off of the water. There are 27 sites in total, 16 with standard electric, and 11 walk-in sites. Campsites tend to be small so RVs over 45 feet will have difficulty navigating the campground. Although the campground is open year-round, the busiest time to visit is between April and September. Pinewood Reservoir is a dog-friendly facility -- they just ask that your pet is never left unattended and that they're on a leash no longer than 10 feet.

The campground was recently renovated, and campsites have fire rings, grills, and picnic tables. There's drinking water available on-site from April to September, as well as trash collection, paved roads, and cooking areas. Pinewood Reservoir Campground has a playground to keep your two-legged children busy, and lots of lovely picnic spots to have lunch with your whole family.

There's a boat launch at the campground, as well as boat rentals and a boating supply store nearby. Due to strong currents, swimming isn't prohibited on Pinewood Reservoir, but the water is used for wakeless boating and fishing. If you want to visit a place where wakes and swimming area permitted, Carter Lake and Horsetooth Reservoir are nearby. The Ramsy-Shockey Open Space is adjacent to the campground, and this 177-acre area has several hiking and biking trails, as well as a quarter-mile wheelchair accessible boardwalk.

In addition to your $15 nightly camping fee, a Larimer County park entrance permit is required when you stay at Pinewood Reservoir. These are available at self-serve stations 24 hours a day, and failure to purchase one will result in a fine. Be sure to book your spot ahead of time so you don't miss out on this pawtastic campground!
