Green Ridge Campground

This campground is located in the Arapaho National Recreation Area near Grand Lake, Colorado and is situated on the shores of Shadow Mountain Reservoir and the Colorado River. There are 78 non-electric sites that will accommodate tents, trailers, and RVs. Facilities provided include restrooms, trash service, and drinking water. Each site contains a tent pad, fire grate, and picnic table. Additional facilities include a boat ramp.

Popular activities include fishing and boating on Shadow Mountain Reservoir or other nearby lakes or streams. Other popular activities include hiking and wildlife viewing around the reservoir and in nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. Most sites lack shade as the trees were removed during the recent mountain pine beetle epidemic.
