In 1995, owners Bob and Jan Davis, struck by the beauty of the area, decided to make Five Branches Camper Park on Vallecito Lake their "home away from home." Today, this 27-acre park, bordering the San Juan National Forest, includes 6 cabins, 10 river front tent sites, 2 group tent sites, 91 RV sites, and some of the most beautiful Colorado wildflowers you will ever see. Many of these sites border the Pine River and Vallecito Lake.
The June 2002 Missionary Ridge Fire left us with very little damage. All structures on the property were untouched, as were the wildflowers and trees. Even with the low water level of 2013, fishing on Lake Vallecito was superb! 2014's May lake level is good! The air is clear, and the flowers are in bloom. Don't forget your hummingbird feeders, because they are VERY hungry. Other nature friends that have shown up include the chipmunks, ground squirrels, marmots, turkey, raccoons, and deer!
Our beautiful park offers guests a variety of things to do. Facilities include 6 cottages (park models), as well as RV sites and tent sites , with some of each located along the river or lake and in the woods. We have a camp store stocked with some of the items you may have left at home, a laundry room with coin operated washers and dryers, an outdoor meeting area to gather with friends, and campfire rings on your site for a warm, glowing campfire under a starry sky! You may also enjoy a hike or bike ride around the lake, swimming in cool mountain waters, or fishing, boating and tubing on the lake or river. Or Just Relax!
Come see why Five Branches Camper Park, on Vallecito Lake, is one of "Colorado's Best Kept Secrets." We can't wait to see you! And by the way, the park is pet friendly, so bring your furry and feathered friends along and visit our own resident camp cat "Lani". Don't forget to keeps your dogs on a leash, Lani has been known to turn those unleashed canines in!
