Lakewood Camps is a traditional Sport Camp, continually operating since 1853, adjacent to the Rapid River. We provide a private cabin, and three home cooked meals in our lakeside dining room. We offer spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, and the best fly-fishing for native Brook Trout and Landlock Salmon in the lower 48 states. Arrive by boat shuttle on our private dock on Lower Richardson Lake, and experience a trip back in time.

This is a minimalist but superb trout fishing camps. Located on one of the best trout rivers in the US. Comfortable and functional cabins -- no luxury. Three solid meals. Extraordinary views East and North over Lake Richardson.

How do I get in touch with Lakewood Camps to make a reservation?
"All cabins have great views but some are closer to the water than others."
"Old, old, old! Certainly no insulation, and I hope you know how to maintain a fire all night."
"If you know the temperature will dip down at night, pick the room closest to the wood stove and/or the bathroom! You have your own table for dinner, so when the bell rings that dinner is ready, you can take your time no matter how far your cabin is."
