My wife and I went to Sugarite Canyon State Park for the 4th of July weekend. Once we had our camp set up, the Ranger stopped by to give us information about the park. She was very informative and welcoming. The views are breathtaking. There is something to do for everyone; from fishing, hiking, bird watching, even a tour of the old coal mine town that once was there. The trout bite on corn, salmon eggs, and one gentleman shared his home made bait. There are two lakes there. Only electric motors and oar powered allowed. This kept the area quiet and peaceful. Lots of shade available. I cannot wait to go back. It is a short drive to Colorado.
