Lost Lake Campground is a great place for families to camp. Kids and parents alike will enjoy fishing and hiking around Lost Lake, Dollar Lake and Lost Lake Slough. Beckwith Pass provides breathtaking vistas of the Ruby Mountain Range. The wildflowers in this region are phenomenal during mid-July and early August. Because of the late spring in 2011 the Columbine, which is the state flower of Colorado, is in full bloom, spectacular and numerous! Campgound Brochure
