Description Of Vallecito Lake
The Blue Spruce RV Park & Cabins is located just north of Vallecito Lake, one of Colorado’s largest and most beautiful mountain lake destinations. We are only 25 miles (about a 45 minute, leisurely forest drive) from Durango. An equally scenic route is from Bayfield about 18 miles, a comfortable 30 minute drive through a picturesque valley with rustic barns and galloping horses. As you approach Vallecito Lake you are greeted with the most spectacular views of the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness, over 2.5 million acres of public land.
This picture perfect area, nestled in a high alpine mountain valley, a wide variety of year round recreational opportunities. The country stores and restaurants, which are all encompassing, add to the charm and casualness of the area.
Vallecito Lake can boast . . . we have four seasons of fun and adventure. The summer offers cool mountain air filled with the scent of fresh pine that is perfect for biking, hiking, horseback riding and boating. The fall offers spectacular golden aspens and bright red oak – scenery that inspires photographers and beckons the big game hunter. Winter provides a wonderland for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, sleigh riding and peaceful relaxation.
