Campsite is beautiful but there’s a bear problem.

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.

Clean and awesome

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..

Amazing Mountains...

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.
