Back to Trinidad Lake State Park

13 03 2015

WP_20150313_004We’re back in Trinidad and the start of the 2015 Texas Road Trip.  With snow and cold conditions forecast for foothills areas around Denver overnight, we hit the road about 3PM yesterday and were set-up and de-winterized in site #2 at Trinidad Lake State Park by 7PM.  We’re partial to site #6, but it currently has a non-operational water faucet.  With antifreeze to clear out of the water system, we prefer full hookups.  And, surprisingly, all other full hookup sites are occupied.

Site #2 works just fine, it’s not nearly as private as #6 and the slope requires unhitching to level.  All of the internal campground roadways have recently been repaved, the guest services building with its gleaming red roof is spotless and everything except the water faucet at site #6 looks in good repair. There appears to be newly paved and improved campsites on the currently closed lower loop.  Sites #46-#50 are very private, some with good lake views and might be worth a visit later in the season.

Cellular service at Trinidad has improved dramatically over the years that we’ve been coming here.  There is full 4G AT&T service along with very fast Verizon broadband. There are also a few over-the-air TV channels out of Colorado Springs.  With rain in the forecast for overnight we’re pleased to awaken to cloudy but dry conditions. With an increasing chance of rain throughout the afternoon, we pay our $24 and pack it up hoping to stay ahead of the wet weather.  We’re headed to Santa Rosa Lake State Park in northeastern New Mexico.  More from there…

Good Luck on your travels. Nice to see you have finally hit the road. We are in San Antonio until Wednesday, then we are off to South Padre Island for a week (or so), then back to San Antonio as we watch the weather so we can start heading north, without having to winterize.
