Report: I go there every year with my grandparents my grandmaother has been going for 60 straight years. It is the funnest trip you get to see bears and other wildlife and the stream has a small pond behind campsite 3 that my mom and uncles dug.
Conditions: Shaddy
Water Availability: Enough water

Number of People Encountered: 50+ ppl
Recommend to a Friend: Neutral
Report: Very Crowded! All sites occupied or reserved when we went at all of Lake Isabel. A very pretty area, but the campsites are close together, with little privacy. Apparently it is a playground for Pueblo, so the average occupancy is not as low as it used to be!
