Great fishing, mountain views, hiking, wildlife viewing, and very peaseful. Says Kent Wilson
Why not camp at Cunningham Gulch since you're here at Vallecito Lake; a great site like San Juan National Forest is too great to leave out. This lake is so wonderful. A quick visit to Nebo Creek in close proximity to Vallecito Lake is a nice idea; going for a glorious snow mobile ride at Silverton Molas Pass on a winter day is always exciting. Whohoo, so many
fun things in one place! Vallecito Lake rocks! There's no such thing as a bad day of skiing at nearby Silverton, and at Vallecito Lake you can catch a glimpse of Hunchback Mountain.
