Welcome to Castle Mountain Recreation!

Castle Mountain Recreation
at Wellington Lake

Bailey, CO

At Castle Mountain Recreation, we offer a wide variety of activities: from camping to fishing, swimming and canoeing, to mountain biking and hiking. This lake has it all! In winter, activities include ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and more.

Wellington Lake, one of our greatest attractions, is a privately-owned natural wilderness area. The 167-acre lake is being managed as a trophy fishery with an emphasis on conservation.

We welcome people of all ages and from all walks of life looking to get away for a relaxing mountain weekend in the great outdoors. We're just a short distance from Denver and Colorado Springs.

WE ARE OPEN YEAR ROUND! For camping reservations click here.
