Campground Details

Number of Sites: 65

Sometimes called a sapphire on the plains, John Martin is a peaceful paradise in which people play, birds flock and wildlife roams. The park is close to historic landmarks, yet remote enough to attract year-round nature and recreation lovers to stay and explore.

John Martin Reservoir provides uncrowded boating, waterskiing, and spectacular conditions for a wide variety of wind water sports. The mild southeastern Colorado weather provides plenty of great days throughout the year. Anglers from shore or boat catch walleye, saugeye, bass, wiper, crappie, perch, and catfish.

Many consider the park a birdwatcher's paradise with almost 400 species documented in Bent County. Majestic Bald Eagles roost here in winter. Threatened and endangered species like the Piping Plover and the Least Tern make the park their home for several months each year. After the birds go to sleep, the stars entertain in a dramatic display of celestial light.

The park welcomes group or individual campers and picnickers in lakeside or shaded areas. Come to John Martin to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax at this quiet and hospitable park for year-round fun in the sun.

There are 213 campsites in two separate campgrounds in the park. Group camping is available at the Caddoa Shelter. Check the park overview map to locate the campgrounds.
