Can you fish in the creek? Where is the best fishing?

Lightner Creek runs through the camp and is a seasonal creek at the mercy of mother nature. Its flow depends on snow melt and seasonal rainfall. You might see a little brookie trout in the early part of the season, but you are better off catching a big one in the Animas River just 5 miles east of our campground! There are also many other great fishing holes nearby, including Lake Nighthorse, Lemon Reservoir, and Vallecito Lake. Be sure to also stop by Duranglers Fly Shop on Main Street to get a fishing license and the 411 on where the fish are biting!
