Camping & Recreation

The campground overlooks Williams Creek Reservoir, with views of surrounding peaks. Teal, like Williams Creek, is popular, so plan to arrive early on busy summer weekends and holidays.

Williams Creek Reservoir is large and stocked with kokanee salmon and trout, with the campground’s 16 sites a short walk from the water. The Colorado Division of Wildlife offers fishing access through the campground to the dam.

Although this end of the lake has no boat ramp, lightweight boats can be carried the short distance to the water. You’ll find a National Forest boat ramp 1/2 mile north of the campground. Motorized boating is allowed on Williams Creek Reservoir, but water skiing and sail surfboards are prohibited, because the reservoir is restricted to wake-free boating.

Services & Facilities

A few large ponderosa pines give some shade, but much of the area is open and grassy. Only a few sites are suitable for larger RVs. Water, vault toilets, trash pickup; no showers. Host on site.
