Description: Fishing galore is found at this 19-acre lake above 9800 ft which was renovated in 1998. Canoeing is possible. 32 campsites above the lake have been added. While large areas of aspens along US 64 have disappeared due to an infestation of western tent caterpillars, much of the aspens in Hopewell Lake Campground have survived, making it a photographers paradise. The lake is regularly stocked with Rainbow trout. Horse campers are welcome with several sites available. Bear, mountain lion and bobcat are common. The abandoned mining camp of Hopewell can be explored nearby. Forest Roads 1892 and 1893 are 2 miles west; roads used for hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, X-C skiing and snowmobiling. The group area accommodates up to 40 people camping. Group area has 21ft pull-throughs. Group shelter for picnicking holds up to 100 people.
