Twin Eagles Campground has nine campsites, some of which are walk-in, with a maximum trailer length of 22 feet. This campground is open year round with reduced service in the winter season. Facilities include toilets, tables, and fire rings but there is no water. There are no reservations at this campground; it is first come, first served.
The Twin Eagles Trailhead is also located at campground and provides access into the Lost Creek Wilderness Area on the Brookside-McCurdy Trail. Once inside the Wilderness Area, Brookside-McCurdy can be combined with several other trails to form your own loop. The Brookside-McCurdy Trail is the major north-south artery through the middle portion of the Lost Creek Wilderness. Its northern terminus is the Payne Gulch Trailhead and its southern terminus is the Twin Eagles Trailhead, southeast of the Tarryall Reservoir. About midway between these two trailheads the Brookside-McCurdy Trail passes through the Lost Park Trailhead. Along the way it connects with nine other trails, providing numerous opportunities to create loop trips of various lengths. Throughout its length, this trail presents the hiker with a wide variety of the different landscapes found in the Lost Creek Wilderness, including different forest types, wide-open parks, wild formations of red Pikes Peak granite, and the tremendous views found along the ridge between Bison Peak and McCurdy Park. Deer, elk, and bighorn sheep are some of the wildlife that can be seen along the trail. Because the trail is almost entirely in designated wilderness, Wilderness regulations apply.
From Lake George, travel north on County Road 77 (Tarryall Road) and drive for about 14 miles to the campground on your right. Park outside the gate and walk to the back to access the trailhead if you are not staying at the campground.
