Blair Lake Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Located in a beautiful high-elevation alpine setting, this small 7 site tent-only campground is situated along the north shore of Blair Lake. Four campsites are walk-in only, the remaining three sites are accessible by vehicle. Expect heavy weekend use during the summer and note that the small, unimproved parking area is better suited for smaller vehicles.

Blair Lake, 35 acres in size and 20 feet deep, supports a population of brook and rainbow trout and is stocked regularly. The surrounding landscape provides an impressive wildflower display in early summer and tasty huckleberries in late summer/early autumn. The historic Blair Lake Trail begins nearby, enticing hikers, equestrians, and off-road cyclists into the high elevation prairies and forests.
