Situated just 6 miles south of Silverton, Colorado, Molas Lake is a 137-acre Silverton-owned campground with 58 tent and RV sites next to a 25-acre lake. The alpine lake is surrounded by stellar views and is a great spot for those who want to camp, but have the conveniences of shower facilities, a camp store, kayak and paddle board rentals, a stocked lake in which to fish, and a town nearby.
Personally, we prefer dispersed camping next to rivers with more of a wilderness experience, but this is a great option for families and those who feel safer camping with others nearby.
