at the Spillway Campground, check in at Aspen
Canyon Lake, the most popular camping area in the entire state,
has much to offer. Virtually every amenity is either available
on site or within a few miles. The Spillway Group Campground set
just above the lake and has room for 25 campers. This
campground is by reservation only. The campground is
well shaded by ponderosa pine, oak, aspen and douglas firs.
at the lake is a country store complete with boat rentals and
a battery charging station for those who bring their own trolling
motors. The store pretty much has everything you might need for
a great camping trip. A phone is available at the front door of
around the corner from the store is the Rocky Point day
use area. There is a charge to use the parking area but
it is minimal ($5.00). There is good fishing down by Rocky
Point and I tend to spend at least one afternoon there
