Closed For the Season

About

National Forest

San Juan National Forest

Overview

West Fork Campground sits near the West Fork San Juan River in a secluded 10-acre area, just over a mile from Highway 160. Visitors enjoy the area for its hiking opportunities and plentiful solitude.

Recreation

The West Fork and nearby Wolf Creek offer fishing opportunities, but are heavily fished streams. Only skilled and patient fishermen have much luck in these waters. The West Fork Trail, also known as the Rainbow Trail, leads into the Weminuche Wilderness from a trailhead a mile beyond the campground. The first portion of the trail passes through private property, so please stay on the trail and leave the gates as you find them.

Facilities

The campground offers single-family sites, some of which are adjacent to the river but without direct views. Most sites are suitable for large RVs. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water.

Natural Features

The campground is situated among a forest of mixed conifers, where sites have sun and shade. The West Fork can be heard, but not seen from the campground.

Nearby Attractions

Trailheads for Windy Pass and Treasure Mountain Trails are located across Highway 160 from the West Fork Road turnoff. Treasure Falls, located off Highway 160 about three miles from the campground, is an impressive 100-foot waterfall with a short hike leading to its base.

Well maintained sites near beautiful West Fork San Juan River

Compact campground but decent buffer between each site. Only a short distance to the river. Very well maintained restrooms and potable water source. Sites 16, 17 and 18 closest to river. 16 and 17 are pull throughs.

A mile or so from Rainbow Hot Springs trailhead

Great Stay

Far enough away from the hustle of Pagosa Springs, far enough from the highway. Old growth forest reminded me of CA.

Forest Camping

Beautiful, small campground near a a rapidly flowing stream/creek. Campsites are relatively large, on dirt, no utilities, but fresh water and restrooms.
