Round Mountain is a small, rustic campground that sits just 6 miles from Lake George, 11 miles from the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, and 15 miles from Eleven Mile Reservoir. It is also within a short drive to hiking and biking trails, fly fishing, wildlife watching, and birding.
Round Mountain, at an elevation of 8,500 feet, sits near Blue Mountain, Stoll Mountain, and Martland Peak. Campsites are widely spaced in woods of ponderosa pine and young aspen. The high altitude creates mild summer days and chilly nights. Aspen trees create a beautiful sunny yellow hue in fall. Interesting wild inhabitants of the area include porcupines, mule deer, beavers, and chipmunks. At night, the area makes for incredible stargazing.
Visitors enjoy nearby Eleven Mile and Spinney Reservoirs for fishing and prime waterfowl watching. Avid anglers come here in winter for ice fishing.
Round Mountain offers 15 reservable campsites. Amenities include picnic tables, vault toilets, campfire rings, and a parking area.
