Greenhorn Campground is on a northern arm of Rollins Lake, 7 miles from Colfax. Rollins Lake is operated by the Nevada Irrigation District. Campers at Rollins Lake enjoy all kinds of water sports, including swimming, waterskiing, and wakeboarding. Jet skis are allowed on the lake. Fishing is good for trout, Kokanee, catfish, and bass. The campground has a boat launch ramp, limited boat rentals, a swim beach, store, game room, and horseshoes.
Greenhorn Campground has about 40 campsites on gravel or dirt pads. Some of the campsites are lakefront. Campsites are divided into several areas such as Rocky Point, Lake Front, Meadow, Pine Grove, Cabana, and Wagon Wheel.
Boaters passing lakefront sites on Rocky Point are inside a no wake zone, but they do not always respect the signs. Meadow and Wagon Wheel sites have limited shade. Pine Grove sites are well shaded, but some are on slopes. Boats can be moored beside Lake Front campsites. There is an additional fee of $7 per day for each boat.
