Many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails are in the surrounding area, including the 1.25-mile Molly Lake Trail (horse and foot only) and 4-mile Mount Margaret Trail (bike, horse and foot). Other popular activities include viewing wildlife and visiting nearby Red Feather Lakes Visitor Center.
Canoeing and fishing are popular activities on 10-acre, no-wake Bellaire Lake. Anglers cast for rainbow and brook trout, among other species. The campground is within walking distance of the lake via an accessible boardwalk. Several additional lakes are in the vicinity.
