First the scenery is gorgeous and the lake is perfect for kayaking and the numerous hikes into the Indian Peak wilderness are a must. Sites are well spaced mostly treed. There aren’t any sites w views of the lake but a short trail takes u right to the lake. The tent camping section are 8 sites in the trees by the creek, all are spacious w bear boxes. The sites are well spaced out so u don’t see the other sites. Only CONS this campground is extremely popular fills up every night during the summers ,it is at 10000 ft. Do it definitely gets cooler at night. We loved it because they do not hav hook ups and electricity so the obnoxious RV stay away.

Campsite reservations fill up fast but there are a good amount of walk-in sites available. Bring cash for payment envelopes if you plan to show up outside of regular hours. These sites have Hosts onsite for quick action if any issues. They mostly stay out of your hair but keep the grounds clean and your neighbors from getting out of hand. Hosts also have firewood for purchase. Most of these campsites are wooded and feel private. A few newer sites have been recently cleared out but we can see that they are trying to regrow trees in those areas. All are within a few minutes walking distance from trash bins, bathrooms, and a water source. All the reserved campsites that I saw had metal firepits, separate charcoal grilling stations, a bear-proof cabinet, and a picnic table. They are all fairly level with gravel and space for 2 vehicles at the site. The walk-in sites are the same except parking lot parking. The bathrooms are cleaned and stocked daily with toilet paper and hand sanitizer. There is no running water or lighting besides the window. Bring a flashlight or headlamp if using at night. This is a pet-friendly site but leashes are required. Temperatures can still be cool in July at altitudes of 10,000 ft. We still had snow on the ground but was still quite warm during the day. Nights will get very cold. I did end up using my winter jacket while doing night photography.

We got up and said let’s venture to Roosevelt wilderness and Brainard Lake Area. It is a endless cornucopia explosion of natural beauty. You should come for a picnic, hike. Fly fish or regular, canoeing on lake is allowed, non motor, paddle board too. Just an amazing gift from Mother Earth! Brings water, water, sunscreen, hats and their is Nederland to get lunch before you head or get afterwards?

Pawnee is a very well cared for campground in/near the Indian Peaks Wilderness, a gorgeous high-altitude setting (10,000+ feet). Paved roadway, clean bathrooms, potable water spigots, graveled level campsites (40+). Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, grill & bear box (for storing anything with a fragrance that might attract a bear - use it!). Elk loop (eastern area of CG) is more open/sunny, Moose loop is more densely wooded/shaded, some sites are walk-in tents-only. CG is within easy walking distance of Brainard Lake, which has ample parking, informative signage, and breathtaking views of tundra & high peaks beyond the lake. Walk a bit further (or drive to small trailhead parking lots) to Long Lake and Mitchell Lake trailheads. In July-Aug, the southern side of Long Lake has an absolutely spectacular display of alpine wildflowers! Hike beyond and above Long Lake to Isabelle Lake & small glacier. Hike beyond Blue Lake to Mitchell Lake. Pets must be leashed. You can't go wrong here: this whole area is beautiful, at any time of year! From mid-Oct till late spring - sometimes into June, depending on snow - the road is gated off near Red Rock Lake, a couple miles before Brainard. The new large parking area at the winter closure (w toilets & warming room) is a great base for hiking, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing (incl. moose!), photography, as well as snowshoeing & X-C skiing (trails nearby). Be prepared for high-altitude conditions: cooler, windier, dryer and with very intense sun. Drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen, sunglasses, layers...and enjoy!

We were so surprised to arrive at the Campground at Brainard Lake and find it had been completely upgraded. You'll find 47 campsites with 11 of them being tent-only, walk-in sites. All campsites had beautiful new picnic tables; fire pits; raised barbecue grills; huge bear boxes to securely store your food and coolers; and level areas for RVs and tents. You can easily walk to Brainard Lake from most campsites, but there is ample parking should you need to drive. There are abundant, clean, vault toilets everywhere and water spigots with potable water. The camp hosts had clearly posted which campsites were available, as this campground takes reservations online 6 months in advance. (The camp hosts also sold bundles of firewood.) Fortunately, we arrived during the week, because the weekend was completely booked in advance. Be prepared to pay a separate fee to the government (a National Parks Pass works) in addition to your nightly camping fee, which was $19.95/night. This campground is mostly in the dense woods, so each campsite is fairly private. There is one section that had a blow down of trees, so it's more open and sunnier in that area. Also, the campground sits at an altitude of !0,300 ft. so drink lots of extra water to avoid a high altitude headache. It's advisable to avoid alcohol for at least the first night due to the possibility of altitude sickness. The 4 mile road into Brainard Lake is a steep, winding, paved road so be prepared for switchbacks when pulling an RV. NOTE: There is no RV dump station at this campground.
