In the shadow of the Great Sand Dunes National Park is peaceful San Luis State Park and Wildlife Area. Waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds and raptors fill the sky over this unique desert ecosystem, making San Luis an outstanding watchable wildlife area most of the year.
The park is located just 15 minutes west of the Great Sand Dunes National Monument and features a modern campground. All 51 sites have electrical hookups, sheltered tables, fire grills, nearby drinking water hydrants, and an available dump station. Campsites have a panoramic view of San Luis Lake, the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and the Great Sand Dunes.
San Luis has been a water sports haven in the San Luis Valley since the 1920s. Water skiing, motor boating, personal watercraft, fishing, sailing, windsurfing and swimming continue to be popular at San Luis. Only hand-launched boats are permitted on San Luis Lake at this time because of low water levels. The boat ramp is closed to motorboats.
The Mosca Campground is located in the low dunes west of San Luis Lake. View San Luis State Park Map for location. The 51 campsites feature a panoramic view of the lake, the surrounding mountains and the Great Sand Dunes. All sites have electrical hookups, sheltered tables, and fire grills. Drinking water and a dump station are also available on site. A bathhouse with modern restrooms, hot showers and laundry facilities is located in the campground.
