Larimer County Natural Resources opens new Sky View Campground at Carter Lake
LOVELAND – Larimer County Department of Natural Resources (LCDNR) is excited to announce the official opening of Sky View Campground, a new six-acre recreation development at Carter Lake reservoir, located along County Road 31 in Berthoud. Larimer County, Great Outdoors Colorado, Colorado Airstream Club, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, alongside other project partners.
Designed as the first campground in Larimer County catering to large groups, Sky View has a total of 15 campsites divided among three pods, accommodating up to 120 people. The design caters to groups looking to camp together for reunions, special occasions, and other events.
Sky View Campground is a capital improvement project funded partially from visitor day use and camping fee revenues collected at Larimer County Natural Resources properties. The campground opens officially on May 20, 2022.
Sky View can accommodate RV and tent campers as a fully paved campground. In addition, the paved site makes the campground accessible to individuals with mobility challenges. Other features of the campground include a group pavilion, electric hookups, water hydrants, restrooms, and communal fire rings.
If you are not much for camping, this location is close to home to join us for the planned Saturday activities or find a hotel nearby.
At the October 19th BOAC Lunch Meeting, we will have an event wrap-up and share how much money was raised this year for the Veterans at Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.
This group is amazing and dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.

BEST BBQ THAT EVER ROLLED INTO YOUR LIFE
————–Last Year’s Event ————
We had 36 campers show up on Friday, July 30, 2021, and brave the wind and wild storm at Chatfield. The next morning the sun came out and we tripled our turnout from last year and had more than 30 takers on the lake fishing for the biggest and most caught in the 3rd Annual BOAC Fishing tournament.
The fish were not having it, but the fun was non-stop!
Everyone came back to camp ready for a smokin’ delicious BBQ for lunch and got what they came for!
The best part of this event is what we are able to accomplish together for the Veterans at Project Healing Waters.
At the September BOAC meeting, we presented a check for $5,000 !
Proceeds Benefit Veterans at Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. Dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.
