Located on Lake Granby's northwestern shore, Stillwater Campground is the popular reservoir's largest campground with over 100 sites and the only one that provides hookups for RVs.
The campground provides a broad selection of site types, from walk-in tent-only sites, standard sites, and electic and water sites, but all of them are fully exposed to the elements, so be sure to bring a sun shelter and be prepared for commonly gusty winds. That said, the lack of trees provides for completely uninterupted 180-degree views of Lake Granby and the western slope of Colorado's Northern Front Range, stretching south to the Indian Peaks Wilderness and north to Rocky Mountain National Park.
The state's third largest body of water, Lake Granby was created when the upper Colorado River was harnessed by the Granby Dam in 1950, a part of the Bureau of Reclamation's Colorado-Big Thompson Project. Siting at an elevation of 8,280 feet, the reservoir is stocked annually with trout and kokanee salmon.
