Woods Lake Campground Uncompahgre National Forest, Telluride Colorado

The Woods Lake Campground is located about 15 miles west of Telluride Colorado and supports a truly pristine campground experience. At 9,400 ft it is well engineered with sites for both trailers, tents, and vehicle sleeping in mind. In addition it has special sites for camping with your horses with corrals and plenty of feeder bins. Trails are abundant and allow a unique experience strolling through the pines, aspens, willows, and a wide variety of vegetation that line Woods Lake and several creeks that flow both into and our of the lake. Ive been told that there are edible mushrooms in the area but I need to get smarter at identifying them first. A free trailhead is also supported for both riders and hikers alike. Wilson Peak, Mt Wilson, and El Dente Peak looms in the background with all three over 14,000 ft.

I seem to be a natural at camp hosting and had no problems adapting to this life style. It takes a couple of hours a day for the chores and everything else is just being available to help any way I can. The Clark store in Telluride is very health conscious and has most everything I need. I can also take a scenic one hour drive to Montrose if I want a Walmart experience. God willing I will be here through September. Will celebrate the Day of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement here. Praise YAH!

    Seems a perfect fit for you, Michael. The area is really beautiful! And majestic! Mike and I are back in Canada for a month. I am in Guelph, On visiting Sheri and Mike is in Inuvik, NWT visiting our Granddaughter, Leah for two weeks. He and Ward went to help Leah build a small houseboat for her and her partner, Justin to be on the lake camping. They are all having a great time, I think. Enjoy your summer. Are you headed south come fall? Take care, Michael and enjoy your summer! Love, Aunt Carrie
