General Description

The Pine Point Campground is 1/2 mile north of North Canyon Campground, at the upper end of the Vallecito Reservoir. The campground offers good views of the high, often snowcapped peaks to the northwest. The 30 shady sites include several pull-throughs and long sites for trailers and other RVs. Some are near the water, but the area is not well protected for mooring boats. A sheltered area for boats and an open play area are located just south of the campground.

Directions from Bayfield, Colorado: Travel 24 miles north on County Road 501, then go 4 miles northeast on Forest Road 501a to the campground entrance.
