Camped here last October 2020

It was amazing and beautiful, close to a lake and close to the town of st. Elmo which is a cool old little mining town.

Just a little farther down the road

The coordinates supplied take you to an ok site very close to the road. If you just go down a little farther and take a right on another dirt road to 38.554392,-106.236875 there are more dispersed sites. Not a lot of shade but a beautiful area. Plenty of room for small RVs or vans. The Colorado…

Nice Campground- Close Proximity to World-class Fly Fishing

This is not exactly our type of campground, which is the only reason I give it 3 out of 5 stars.  It is a little too exposed to sun and wind (see pics), but there are some sites that are tucked away a little more comfortably than others.  I suggest looking at a site map before choosing your…

Dispersed by the river with shade

We were able to find dispersed camping if you keep driving down the road past the private ranch. There was a fire pit, shade, and a short walk to the river. Super dusty though. Dog friendly and far enough away from other campers. Definitely recommend, as it has everything you need.

Nice site-horrible road

Sites are nice with plenty of room. Problem is the four mile road. It is really rough. Do not recommend driving anything heavy.

Nice location but pitiful water pressure and wi-fi

This campground is located on hillside just off of Hwy  50 approximately 6 miles west of Salida, Colorado. A beautiful location. We stayed here two nights in June, knowing this is a relatively new KOA that used to be a private campground. We would have left at the end of the first day except that…

Beautiful dispersed area

About 5 min up the mountain from the lakes. Lots of dispersed camping available. Our site had an amazing view of the lakes. Occasional dirt bike riding around. Some campers run loud music late into the night. Early June, lake water is very cold, but refreshing for a quick dip.

Quiet Get-A-Way

Large, non-electric sites with picnic table and fire pit. Most sites are tucked in the trees and well shaded. If shade is important, check the campground map before booking. We went for a nice walk down the forest road towards Weston Pass. Beautiful views.

One of Colorado's best campgrounds in my opinion. It is beautiful and on the beach of Turquoise Lake.

First come first serve, $24/night, $7 for each car after the first two. 20ish sites and they are all under a huge spread out pine glade. Well shaded during the day and keeps it cool as well as…

Quiet, beautiful campground

Beautiful little campground between Twin Lakes and Independence Pass. Our site had a large enough space for our oversized ground tent and enough shade to keep cool in the heat of the day. Our site was adjacent to the river which provided a loud background noise that is heaven to sleep to. The views…

Lakeside camping with boat ramp and trail access

We stopped at Matchless as we needed a first come site the night before our reservations at Molly Brown. We were a bit skeptical at first as it looks like a large asphalt parking lot. The campsites all surround the parking area so you park on asphalt but are steps away from your wooded site. We…
