Overlooking the beautiful Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, surrounded by the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, relaxing to the whisper of our own natural waterfall, the Highlander RV Campground invites you to experience the best that Colorado has to offer.

 

Don and Diane Campbell, your hosts, are third generation Lake City Residents. They began building the Highlander in 1993 following a 22 year career in the Air Force.  Their oldest son Scott has recently joined the crew,  after his own 22 year career in the United States Army.   Their business philosophy is simple; provide a beautiful place that your friends and relatives would enjoy, treat your guest as friends, and provide as many amenities as possible at a reasonable price. This philosophy has resulted in the Highlander receiving the highest ratings in the Lake City area from both "Trailer Life" and "Woodalls".

Only minutes from historic downtown Lake City, yet far enough away from it all to relax. We are nestled in an Aspen and Spruce forest, only 600 feet north of Lake San Cristobal, Colorado's second largest natural lake.Our Campground and Log Lodge overlook the Lake Fork River. Relax and enjoy our soothing waterfall, view the Continental Divide and aspen covered peaks.

Before you head out for your daily activities, please join us for a cup of coffee, and conversation on the deck.

If hiking is your pleasure, have we got trails for you. On site, we have 30 acres on the side of Hotchkiss mountain that lead to the wilderness area further up the mountain. The trails are old mining roads and are easy to follow, up and down. Within 10 miles of the campground, we have 5 peaks that are 14,000 feet or higher. These 14ers all have trails to the top and afford spectacular views. They range in difficulty from easy to moderate.

 

If you prefer, we offer new Jeep Wranglers for rent by the day or week. The most popular 4Wd trail is the Alpine Loop. The loop connects Lake City and Silverton via Cinnamon Pass and Ouray via Engineer Pass.The well preserved ghost towns of Carson , Animas Forks , Burrows Park offer the explorer insight into the life here over 100 years ago. Old mines are numerous, and where the mine is now on public property, rock hounding is very popular.
