Custer Cove Campground - GLENDO


↪ Get Directions

Amenities: Vault Toilets (1), ADA accessible camping pad (1)

Custer Cove is a moderately sized, heavily treed campground, which can be most easily accessed from I-25 by getting onto Glendo Park Road, heading south past the main fee booth, and turning left onto Lakeshore Drive. After about 1.5 miles, the campground will be on the right. A shelf of shale and clay surrounds the campground, but gives way to a gently sloped, sandy beach at the southwestern water line. The beach is extensive, and is a popular summer destination for swimmers and all kinds of water recreation. Most of the 20 campsites in Custer Cove have some tree cover, with the exception of sites 6, 9 and 20 which are entirely exposed. Sites 6 and 9 are also the largest, as both are pull-through sites, with a solid gravel base. The other campsites are fairly short and narrow, making them ideal for small RVS and campers, along with tent-camping. Usually, from mid-May to late July the water is high enough that campers at Custer Cove have easy walking access to the water’s edge. As the water level drops, the walk to the shoreline grows longer, but the campground remains one of the closer campgrounds to the water.
