The campground overlooks the beautiful Lake Fork of the Gunnison River and is surrounded by the breathtaking San Juan Mountains.
Built on mining claims dating back to the early 1900’s, the Highlander has 35 full hookup sites surrounded by spruce and aspen. The campground is nestled in the valley just north of Lake San Cristobal.
Don and Diane Campbell are third-generation Lake City residents who began building the Highlander in 1993 after Don retired from a 22-year Air Force career. Their oldest son, Scott, joined the team after his own 22-year Army career.
Sean joined the team recently after serving 22 years in the Air National Guard; and Amy joined after 22 years of teaching in Michigan. So it’s truly a family owned and operated business!
Their business philosophy is simple – provide a beautiful place that your friends and family will enjoy; treat all guests as friends; and provide as many amenities as possible, all at a reasonable price. This philosophy has resulted in the Highlander receiving the highest ratings in the Lake City area from Good Sam’s.
