Bear Lake Campground is located in the Bear River area, 14 miles southwest of Yampa on Forest Development Road 900.

This campground is on the Flat Tops and is managed by the Yampa Ranger District.

The campground has a rustic nature with most of the 43 sites naturally screened from one another. It also boasts 4 double sites and 1 triple site to accommodate larger groups.

The campground has been a favorite of visitors for many years. It typically opens for Memorial Day and closes sometime in October, dependent on weather and use.

Sites are available on a first come, first served basis. This area accesses some great fishing and hiking.

Surrounded by the 235,000-acre Flat Tops Wilderness, the views are spectacular.
