Angel Creek Campground is a primitive campground requiring high clearance vehicles. There are 8 designated camp sites with tent pads and fire rings/grills. Port-a-potties are available.
Primitive camping right outside outside Ouray Colorado. Imogene pass trail ends at the campground entrance. Trail into campground is a little rough but that's primitive camping. There are vault toilets that seem well maintained. Sites are well spaced. Expect animal visitors. Sound of the river nearby is comforting.
June 5, 2020: Trekked into Uncompahgre and planted Taco the Tiger Moth onto a beautiful land of green grass. We only had a few hours to check out our surroundings and the creek nearby, and then the storm rolled in. Thankfully, we had Taco the Tiger Moth to keep us dry, but unfortunately we didn’t have time to experience anymore than the creek and the land around us where we planted ourselves for the day and night. We ended up staying inside most of the night and early morning because of the storm.
I give it 5 stars because of the location, the untouched wilderness, and the peaceful feeling we felt. Be free and wild.
P.S. The morning we left here we ate at a place called Camp-Bells in Ouray, CO..we highly recommend this place because of the awesome staff and delicious food. Num, num…
The campsite is beautiful. It’s close to the water and the views of the mountains are great. The sites are much more spread out than the nearby Thistledown site. That being said, we stayed for two night and both nights we were awoken by bears. The first night one tore into a plastic container we have with things like rope, propane, hammers, etc. The second night they were trying to get into the bear proof food lockers. It appears that these bears rely on food found at the campgrounds and it’s a dangerous situation for both the campers and the bears.
We stay at Angel creek campsite for 4 nights, it was quiet and clean, turning think I don't like is that there's only two portal patty and they were far from our campsite. Other than that everything was great..
We stayed here in June… It is close to Ouray but far off the grid, June is the month to go… All of the campsites are right on and or close to the water… LOTS of wildlife and deer….Did I mention the mountain views… Awesome Place and Ouray Hot Springs are close by in Ouray.
