Off the beaten path solitude

Spent seven days here as a base for bagging fourteeners, 4 wheelin', and just chilling.  Super clean campground, clean vault toilets,

Dispersed camping only

There is no campground here but dispersed camping is allowed in some areas.

Stayed just below

This is a nice area. Bathroom with no running water or electric. We have a big unit and dry camped just below this campground on Red Mountain Creek at the bridge, 1/4 mile away. There are other spots along the road also. Fishing is good above Ivy Creek campground and on Red Mountain. The road getting there is excellent but does narrow down and gets curvy the last couple of miles. I have a 40’ 5th wheel and made it fine but would not want to meet other traffic in this short stretch. Plenty of hiking, biking, 4-wheeling, fishing or just sitting and enjoying the peaceful mountains. We were here in July and the temps at night were about 40 and the day was 70.

Rollin on the River

Spots right on the river are pure bliss.  Full hookups and the sound of the Rio Grande to lull you to sleep.  How great is that? 

Full hookups were great.  Owners were fantastic and friendly. 

The town of South Fork is very small but you can get groceries and gas.  South Fork is on the East side of Wolf Creek Pass, which is a beautiful, steep, drive.  The best part about the area is the ample amount of fishing.  This area is an anglers dream, reservoirs in every corner of the map with the Rio Grande at your fingertips.  Fishing dreams made!

Campground spots were well positioned but a tiny bit close.  I would highly recommend any of the ones on the river, you have plenty of space to spread out between the picnic table, fire ring and grassy area by the river's edge.

Great family spot!!

Clean facilities, friendly staff, overall great experience!!

South Fork Campground + The Rio Grande River + Fly Fishing

My friend and I stayed at the South Fork Campground for a fly fishing trip.  

The campground seems to be primarily a RV campground with 50 sites, but they do allow tent camping with 6 sites. There is an office at the entrance and the staff were friendly. Next to the office is a community room and laundry room.

The RV sites have water and electric hookup. The tent sites do not - at least ours did not. There are restrooms with sinks, toilets and showers nearby the campsites.

The campground itself sits on the Rio Grande River which is a world class fly fishing river. When we were visiting the river was flowing fast and deep, so it was not a very productive time. We choose to fish in the mountain lakes and streams instead.

Overall the South Fork Campground is a nice place to stay for a few days or longer. The campsites were a little close in proximity for me, but I'm one that is accustomed to backcountry camping where there are few people around. The campground is a short drive to the town of South Fork where there are grocery stores, gas stations and outdoor gear and fly fishing stores.

Great spot!!!

Great site! It's about 12 miles down usfs22. Takes about 35-40 minutes to get back there. Road is very well maintained. Follow signs for parking once to get to end of road. There is a bathroom and multiple sites right on the river! Heard some coyotes in the distance! And hunters will frequent there!

Lots of amenities

Nice, clean privately owned campground with lots of amenities. Hot showers, bath house, ice and few supplies sold in the office. Campsites right along the river. Very friendly staff. Campsites are a little too close for our liking but worked out well for our stay. Close to lots of fishing and hiking in the area. Beautiful place to watch the sunset and the stars at night. Nice and quiet at night.

First to Review
Nice wild area

Early in June there are two moose that have babies in the area so keep your eyes open. The toilets are clean and the river helps drown out any noise from your neighbors.

If you’re looking for more rustic tent camping there is an informal area just downstream.

Wild cows & rapid rivers

Very long road to ride up the mountain to camping, like a winding goat trail if driving a larger rv. Beautiful scenery well worth the winding way. Free range cows traverse the area. Great for boondocking.
