​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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 Park and Preserve 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.

Check the park’s Conditions Page or call the park at (719) 378-2020 for current lake conditions. During winter months call Lathrop State Park at (719) 738-2376 for current conditions.


The Mosca Campground is now OPEN for the season. For more information, visit the camping page​.
