Fun and chill

We drove in, early afternoon and were surprised to find an available spot. The camp hosts recommended B4 cause it was a little secluded and had a level parking spot. Bathrooms were clean and convenient, mountain bikers were going by every couple of minutes.

Absolutely FABULOUS!

Last time I saw Vallecito Lake was in April of 2019. It was virtually empty of any water and that is not an exaggeration. Every bit had been drawn down and it being April the Spring melt had not yet started. However, the area around the lake had captured my soul and I had been hankering to…

Excellent amenities and staff

Incredibly friendly staff, great store with camping necessities and fun swag. Dog park was large enough with a shaded tree and benches. Pickle ball, movie night, pool, playground ect included. Almost every space was filled but it was quiet because the activities are spread nicely away from where we…

Great views - car camping

Great spot right off the road! This spot had plenty of space to park our car (a small RV would fit too). Great views and some shade.

Best of all the dispersed camps sites in our opinion.

Not a KOA but still solid

This campground was a very present experience. The river was right behind our site and there was a small amount of privacy. Pool was superb. My only complaints are that the bathhouse I went to (old one) was pretty rough. Also I’m convinced the wifi isn’t actually connected to anything. There is 0…

One of the best camp grounds in CO

We spent a total of 8 days at this campground with 2 dogs and 3 kids. it was amazing falling asleep to the sound of the river at night and waking up to the call of singing birds. We enjoyed all the area had to offer. I recommend bringing decent bug repellent as the mosquitos can get heavy at dawn…

Quiet

We are traveling with a young, very timid dog so asked for a large space. She gave us an end space with no shade and no grass; however, we have a nice view of the trees along the Animas River and are a short distance from the river. Lots of long term RVs, but their spaces are well maintained. Good…

quiet place to crash

We stayed here on a Tuesday night (May 5). It was extremely quiet; we were probably one of two campsites that were occupied that night. The outhouse was clean, and the campsite host came by and said hello in the morning. Overall it was a nice place to crash on our way to the sand dunes.
