Leadville Area Campgrounds
Sugar Loafin Campground sits within a forest of conifers near Turquoise Lake and the historic town of Leadville. Turquoise Lake attracts large crowds during the summer months so this campground tends to get a bit crowded. It is not, however the busiest campground in the area. While there are several tent sites which are somewhat removed from the main area of the campground, the majority of the available sites are close together and offer little privacy. Beginners will enjoy the many amenities but camping purists will likely want to seek out more isolated and rustic campgrounds.
Swimming, fishing and boating are among the activities available at the near by lake while hiking and biking trails are also close by. Hagerman pass offers four-wheeling just a short drive away. Fire rings, picnic tables and grills are supplied and the on site facilities include Flush toilets, showers, drinking water and laundry facilities. A general store offers the basics including propane.
