Teal campground is just a short walk from Williams Creek Reservoir which contains kokanee salmon and trout. The surrounding peaks offer great photo opportunities. A few large ponderosa pines provide limited shade, but much of the area is open and grassy. Only a few sites are suitable for large RVs. Teal, like Williams Creek, is a popular camping area, so plan to arrive early on busy summer weekends and holidays.
The Colorado Division of Wildlife offers fishing access through the campground to the dam. Although this end of the lake has no boat ramp, lightweight boats can be carried the short distance to the water. A Forest Service ramp is 0.5 mile north of the campground.
