Stayed at campground and did some Glamping. Would recommend and return here. Clean and well maintained. The fishing was good as well. Wasn't too impressed with the ampi theatre. The lakes are all good for catching fish and not too crowded.

We paid $31 for an electric site near the showers. The female ranger was very helpful in helping us pick a site. Hogback trial was very nice. There was a neat little rock formation between our campsite in the pinion campground and hogback trail.

The Pinon Campground is very clean and such a nice area. We played golf at the adjoining golf course and love that. Took a nice drive up to La Veta and Cuchara.

Fishing was next to impossible because the lake was high and there were several people there. We have visited before when the lake was lower and still had the same issue.

Horsehoe Lake would probably work. Call the park or check the website for updates. TripAdvisor won't let me add the website so google Lathrop State Park Water Activities :-)

In Loop A, 25 through 36, Loop B, 53 through 56. These sites offer great views of the Spanish Peaks and the Cuchara Valley and LaVeta Pass.
