The Spectacular Spot In Colorado Where You Can Camp Right On The Beach

If you love camping, you already know that Colorado is the best place to live in terms of campgrounds with a view, off-the-grid places to pitch a tent, and oh-so fabulous glampgrounds. What you may not realize, however, is that Colorado is also home to sandy beaches where you can camp, including the gorgeous Jackson Lake State Park:

Located along the northeastern plains, Jackson Lake State Park is one Colorado’s premiere outdoor getaways for water sports, hiking, and hunting. What you may not realize, however, is that this “Oasis in the Plains” is also home to a beautiful swim beach, which was named one of the “Top 15 Park Beaches” by Reserve America! While swimming and relaxing on the beach’s sandy shore is an enjoyable experience, we recommend either bringing your RV or tent to Jackson Lake for a one-of-a-kind Colorado outing. Open year round, Jackson Lake State Park offers 260 campsites (complete with electrical hookups) that can be reserved 72 hours in advance by either calling the Colorado Parks & Wildlife’s offices (1.800.678.2267) or by visiting their website.
