Try Winding River we camped there a couple weekends ago and the camp sites were nice and you can get some with trees if you reserve them and depending on the size of your camper... there is a small river running through it that we have caught some brookies and browns in.. As far as River fishing you could also camp at Shadow mountain and be able to fish the spillway right below the shadow mountain dam and you could also make the hike to columbine bay if you are willing to... I believe the camp sites at Shadow are first come first sever and they aren't heavily tree'd if that's what you are looking for... I also forgot that the Winding River has full hook ups if you will be staying in a camper... Another area to camp would be Arapahoe bay... It has some spots that are heavily tree'd but there are no full hook ups for the campers and there is a lake named monarch right next to it that I'm sure you would enjoy fishing for brook trout and there is a small river that runs from that lake into Granby that I'm sure holds fish... If you want more info on were to stay find the lake you are looking to camp around on this site and scroll to the very bottom and there will be links containing information on the campsites

Not much river fishing around Lake Granby, unless you want to do some driving. Hot Sulfur Springs has some camping and the fishing in Byers Canyon is very good, if you don't mind some work walking the canyon. Easy access along the railroad tracks. The Colorado all the way to Kremling is all good water.
