Property Overview

Molas Lake Park Campground was granted to the Town of Silverton in 1925 from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The 137-acre campground sits along the Million Dollar Highway (US 550) in the central San Juan Mountains; the most spectacular peaks in the Colorado Rockies. \

The Campground is adjacent to the largest wilderness area in the state of Colorado, the Weminuche Wilderness. Molas Lake Park Campground provides visitors with unforgettable scenery, a stocked 25-acre lake, National Forest access via the Colorado Trail, and dark, starry skies free from light-pollution.

The campground and day-use amenities were completely renovated in 2008.

There are more than 50 campsites serving tent-campers, small RV’s and pop-ups, and a few sites over 1,500 square feet to serve even the largest RV’s.

The park has one water pump, several clean and new vault-style restrooms, and showers.

Note:   None of the camp sites at Molas Lake have electric or water hook‐up’s although there are water taps located next to the office you can use to fill up your water containers. RV’s can fill up to 30 gallons but no more.  THERE IS NO DUMP STATION ON‐SITE.  The closest dump station is 5 miles in Silverton (fee).

Elevation: 10,000
