Beautiful views of the river!

Pulled in around 4pm on a Saturday and only 1 other camper was here. A few vehicles were parked at the bathroom/trailhead, super friendly. There’s about 3-4 spots with picnic tables then at least 10 other spots with rock ring fire pits but no tables. There is 1 clean vault toilet, but no TP so bring your own. 1-2 bars LTE AT&T service available near bathroom but gets worse the further you go away from it. The views of the river are beautiful as well as the sunrise. It’s a bumpy 3 mile road off the highway, had no issues in my transit van as long as you take it slow.

Easy spot along the river

I car-camped here just before Labor Day weekend and while it wasn’t the most private camping area, I was able to snag a spot along the river and had a nice time.

Gorgeous campground,

The paces are spread apart and many line the creek that runs through it. The park is tiered so some RVs were up in the taller trees. We loved this place, it's not far from town but fills like it's deep in nature. Red River is an adorable town to boot.

We had great Wi-Fi as well. Couldn't have asked for more.

Breathtaking Views

This park was a great choice. Tucked in a canyon with a stream running through it, we secured a spot on the water. Large pine trees, tiered spots, walking distance to the cute town of Red River.

Small gift shop with very few items, no firewood for sale that I could see. Friendly staff, dog park, fishing, deer come in every night

Sandy desert like

We stayed in the first pull out to the left of the road. Watch the entry off CO 150 as it is very narrow. No hookups but no fee. All was well until the wind came up suddenly and we were in a brief windstorm with sand all in our trailer.

Closed, but with options

Campsites are closed due to mistreatment-- signs indicate too much partying, ATVs, and trash. Campsites are closed for wilderness restoration but parking/camping off the main road is possible. No services.

Lots of space!

Very secluded! Even when full I imagine the spots are far enough apart. If the spots are full keep going down the road! Plenty of dispersed camping! We’ll be back! Beautiful scenery!

BLM Dispersed road

Smooth dirt road with large spots and smaller spots right off the road. Perfect for when all the other nearby campgrounds are full, but make sure you get there before sunset because it will fill up. We stayed on a busy Friday and didn't go up the road too far; it looked like it gets steeper and rocky.

A Nice Area

A vehicle with off-road capabilities is recommended if you want to reach this campground. While not impossible with a regular sedan, it does take navigating up some unpaved switchbacks. The campsites here are undeveloped but there are picnic tables. Also most of the sites are on some sort of slope. The area is surprisingly busy and the parking lot often becomes pretty crowded, but not full, by morning. The lake offers a good view and there is some hiking nearby. A good spot if you want some more dispersed style camping near a lake.

Awesome RV resort!

Beautiful setting along the Red River. Spacious sites and all of the amenities. Friendly staff.
