West Lake Campground

Want to take advantage of the available AWD and robust Honda Pilot towing capacity? Hitch up your boat and head out to West Lake Campground. Just 48 miles northwest of Fort Collins, this campground offers 36 campsites, each with a tent pad, fire grate, and picnic table. All sites, except for the 5 walk-in tent sites, also have electric hook-ups. West Lake Campground is an extremely popular destination where you can hike, fish, or just sit back and take in the beauty of the lake, the mountains, and the Ponderosa pines. You can make a reservation online at or by calling (877) 444-6777.

Arapaho National Recreation Area

The Honda Pilot dimensions make it easy to load up all of the gear you need to experience all that the Arapaho National Recreation Area has to offer. There are several campgrounds from which to choose, including Sunset Point, Green Ridge, Willow Creek, Arapaho Bay, and more. Activities include hiking, boating, camping, fishing, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing. To get more information, call the Sulphur Ranger District at (970) 887-4100.

Pawnee Campground

With 47 campsites for campers, RVs, tents, or trailers, Pawnee Campground has been a long-time favorite of families from Lakewood to Arvada. Again, the Honda Pilot towing capacity will serve you well if you are planning a visit to this popular spot on the east side of Brainard Lake. We suggest that you hike on the trails west of the campground to wander through the stunning Indian Peaks Wilderness. You can get more information by calling 303-541-2515.

Clear Lake Campground

If you are looking to get off the beaten path, the Clear Lake Campground just south of Georgetown is the one for you. It is sparsely used, does not require reservations, and has only 8 campsites, each of which are perfect for small camper trailers or tents. All sites have a tent pad, picnic table, and fire grate. This is a great place to get away from it all, and the spacious Honda Pilot dimensions will come in handy for bringing along all of the food and camping gear you’ll need. More information is available from Clear Creek Ranger District Visitor Services at (303) 567-4382.
