Lake Pueblo State Park is located about 14 miles west of Pueblo at an elevation of 4,690 feet. There are five campgrounds in the park. These include: Arkansas Point, Juniper Breaks, Prairie Ridge, Yucca Flats, and Kettle Creek. The latter three are collectively known as the Northern Plains Campground and are close together. There are a total of 401 campsites in the park. All of the roads and parking areas are paved. All sites have a covered picnic table, and fire pit. Water hydrants are located in all of the campgrounds. These campgrounds are quite open with only scattered vegetation making privacy limited. None of the campgrounds are located on the lake.
The Juniper Breaks Campground is located away from the north shore on a plateau above the lake. This centrally located campground is dotted with juniper trees. Facilities here are more primitive with just vault toilets and drinking water. This campground is less crowded than the others. There are 84 campsites in this campground. Sites 15, 17, 58, and 59 are disabled accessible. Sites 74, 76, 78, and 80 have great views of the lake.
The campground is open year round and is especially popular during the summer months. Reservations are accepted.
