Campgrounds still open between September and May have no services (water, electric, trash pick up or rest rooms). Please keep them clean and pack it out. Thanks!
Transfer Park Campground is only 1 mile past Florida Campground, with 11 acres of shaded settings above the Florida River. This was the site of a historic transfer station for ore and supplies between pack mules and wagons in the mining era. Two loops have 25 sites with shade and sun, and large, open play areas. The upper loop is mostly level, with several larger sites. The lower loop is near the river and has 2 larger sites, a few short pull-thru’s, and several tent spots.Parking for the Burnt Timber Trail is near the camp-ground. Hitching rails and an unloading dock for horses are available; however, horses are not allowed in the campground. This popular trail accesses the Weminuche Wilderness (where mountain bicycles and motorized vehicles are prohibited), with connections to the Lime Mesa, Mountain View Crest, and City Reservoir areas.
Beautiful area, no phone service…but that's not what camping is for, right? Nice deep fire pit, clean area. Not too busy.
About 45 minute drive from downtown Durango, this is fabulous off-grid camping. You feel like you are many miles away. The facilities are clean, location is beautiful. There is accessible hiking and cycling nearby. Campsites are very private. Water nearby. Camp host is great. Love this place!
A magical place.
