About Campfire Ranch on the Taylor

Camp and adventure in the Gunnison-Crested Butte valley at Campfire Ranch. It's still camping, just easier. We feature walk-in tent campsites, convenient amenities, demo camping equipment and an Adventure Concierge service!

Located alongside the famed Taylor River in Gunnison County, CO is the home of our first campground, Campfire Ranch on the Taylor. Our location is outstanding, positioned on County Road 742, down the road from the newly paved Cottonwood Pass, which is just 18 minutes to Crested Butte and 18 minutes to Gunnison. Taylor Canyon is home to some of the most iconic views in the Central Rockies, abundant recreational pursuits and outstanding access to nearby communities. We can’t wait to have you camp with us!

Get ready to camp in rustic comfort at Campfire Ranch on the Taylor. All of our campsites are walk-in and tent-only, which means no RV’s allowed. This saves you from sleeping beside noisy generators, idling vehicles and slamming car doors each night. Each campsite is just a short walk from your vehicle, water and bathroom, a backcountry feel without the hassle.

3 Reviews of Campfire Ranch on the Taylor
Perhaps the best campground

I hate to spoil this place with a great review, knowing it will make it more difficult to book here in the future. However, this may be the most thoughtful, scenic, and clean campground I’ve ever visited. With fresh, cold and clean mountain water for drinking!

Amazing location and sites

Great time for a first time camper or an experienced camper. Host will help you with any gear you need, give directions to any activities you want to do, and there’s no RVs. Climbing routes all around and Doctor Park is right there! Can’t beat it!

Super Easy - Great surroundings

I had the pleasure of going with a group of 8 and we had 1 site and become good friends with our neighbors by the end of it. Unlimited firewood for us since we love fires and the mountain biking trails are legit! We even had time to go into town, Crested Butte, and hang out for a few hours before heading back to camp. The clean bathroom is super nice to have along with that well-water. Oh, and it was nice to wake up and have hot coffee handy!
