Nice place but where is the camp host?

This is the second summer here. Lovely except no camp host. The toilets are all in need of tending. Already end of June. And full. People are coming up here putting tickets on first come first serve without occupying the space. That should not be allowed nor should putting a fake tent down.…

Worst camping trip ever

This campground is best suited for campers that have no children or pets, people who will spend zero time at their campsite or folks who are in their tent/camper by 9:30 pm.

This campground has zero tolerance for children

Our first impression wasn’t that great. Our site was clearly not…

Love love love!!!

Great campground at 9000’ with trees all around and wonderful view of the valley below. Hosts were great. We easily got our 40’ coach into a very level site. Definitely will be back!

Excessively Harassed By Camp Hosts

If you like to have a nice relaxing time camping… don’t come here! Seriously! If you can… cancel and go literally anywhere else.

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…

Gorgeous views but some drawbacks

The valley this campground is in, is flat out gorgeous.  Amazing boulder mountains and tall pines make for stellar views.  Sleeping with the sound of the river was also awesome for the whole family.  But, it isn't perfect (depending on your site).  We reserved site 21 b/c it was right next to the…

Wonderful campground around lake

Very peaceful location with lake, mountains and stream. Even when full it isn’t overrun. Lake is great for kayaks, SUPs and stocked for fishing. Very popular and fills quickly - a handful of sites are first come first serve. Used cell booster to get decent signal

This is one of our favorite places to camp in all of CO

Shhh, don’t tell anyone. You are on the river, nestled amongst gorgeous boulders, easy to get in and out of even with a large travel trailer.

The hosts are always extremely friendly and helpful. This one even helped us locate a dump station.

White Star campground is incredible

This campground is stunning. The individual camping areas are nice large spots, so you don’t feel close to you neighbors. Gorgeous views of Mt Elbert and surrounding 14ers. Lake is close for some nice easy fishing. They usually have water available as well as a dump station but they were closed for…

Free til season

Beautiful views of Mt Elbert. Large lot that could fit ANY rv. Amazing tent sights. Vault toilets are shared with boaters that have an adjacent parking lot. Super close to Colorado trail.

Loved it - dry camping (no water)

We really enjoyed this spot by the river. It’s alittle out of town and quiet. I’d definitely not follow google if you have a big rig as you will go through some tunnels to get to the Site and if you have a big rig you may not fit The site is dry- no water and no electric and no dumpster for trash…

Beautiful BLM land

Awesome location, beautiful views of the collegiate peaks and about 20 minutes away from Salida. There are lot of spots in this area (some side roads lead you to 360 views). The cows stroll through the fields every now and then too. Some trash and broken glass in places, but overall not too bad. On…
