John Martin Reservoir State Park


Tent Camping RV Parks and Resorts 

John Martin Reservoir State Park is a sapphire on the plains of southeastern Colorado. Located in the Lower Arkansas River Valley, visitors come to John Martin to take advantage of its' modern campgrounds, great fishing, uncrowded boating waters, and diverse wildlife viewing. The park is close to historic landmarks, yet remote enough to attract year-round nature and recreation lovers.

Lake Hasty Campground nestled below the dam has 109 campsites, which can accommodate recreational vehicles, trailers, and tents. In winter, 51 sites remain open with Potable water available and a dump station. A camper services building, open April 1 to October 31, has flush restrooms, laundry room, and coin-operated showers.

The large reservoir accommodates all forms of water recreation including water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, windsurfing, and swimming. Anglers catch walleye, saugeye, bass, wiper, crappie, perch, and catfish. Fish-cleaning station.

John Martin supports a diverse community of wildlife. Resident and migratory birds abound here, making the park a bird-watchers paradise. Every year from mid-April to late August visitors share the sand and gravel shores of the reservoir with the Threatened Piping Plover and Endangered Interior Least Tern. During the winter months, Bald Eagles can be seen throughout the area.

Please call the number below directly for updated information before you make your on-line reservation. Please note that a daily fee or annual parks pass is required for entry into the park.
