    We were so surprised to arrive at the Campground at Brainard Lake and find it had been completely upgraded. You'll find 47 campsites with 11 of them being tent-only, walk-in sites. All campsites had beautiful new picnic tables; fire pits; raised barbecue grills; huge bear boxes to securely store your food and coolers; and level areas for RVs and tents. You can easily walk to Brainard Lake from most campsites, but there is ample parking should you need to drive. There are abundant, clean, vault toilets everywhere and water spigots with potable water. The camp hosts had clearly posted which campsites were available, as this campground takes reservations online 6 months in advance. (The camp hosts also sold bundles of firewood.) Fortunately, we arrived during the week, because the weekend was completely booked in advance. Be prepared to pay a separate fee to the government (a National Parks Pass works) in addition to your nightly camping fee, which was $19.95/night. This campground is mostly in the dense woods, so each campsite is fairly private. There is one section that had a blow down of trees, so it's more open and sunnier in that area. Also, the campground sits at an altitude of !0,300 ft. so drink lots of extra water to avoid a high altitude headache. It's advisable to avoid alcohol for at least the first night due to the possibility of altitude sickness. The 4 mile road into Brainard Lake is a steep, winding, paved road so be prepared for switchbacks when pulling an RV. NOTE: There is no RV dump station at this campground.

    Brainard Lake has good population of Brook Trout if you enjoy fishing. Also some wonderful trails to hike with unbelievable scenery. BUT the real attraction at Brainard Lake is the Moose! I've seen as many as twelve very large bull moose at Brainard Lake in one day! The moose are usually very cooperative to pose for photo's too!

    We have tent camped all over colorado and this campground is by far the most beautiful place we have stayed. There are 8 walk-in sites that are full by 9am so come early. The vault toilets were clean and the campground is neat and quiet. The lake is a short walk or drive. We saw moose every day. Many hikes for all levels and fishing at the lake and surrounding streams helps the days fly by. It's also a great place to ride bikes. Altitude is 10,000 feet so drink lots of water and wear sunscreen every day. There is much less beetle kill here so you will have shade. What are you waiting for?

    My wife hiked around Long Lake, my brother and I fished Brainard and the South St. Vrain. This is a lovely mountain spot. I would recommend it especially to those who may have difficulty getting about as it is over 10,000' but blacktop all the way, terrific views, and good handicap accessibility. We saw a bull moose right off the road, and my brother and his family have come across them hiking here.

    We visited Brainard Lake during the early season when the ranger station wasn't open yet. We hiked up the highway 2 miles to check out this spectacular lake with views. We want to go back in August and try some camping and hiking. There was still quite a bit of snow and trails required snowshoes are cleats in June when we visited. We will definitely be back!
