Close to dead horse point, and just a short drive from Moab. Very nice campground with blacktop roads, flushing toilets, fire rings, and level tent spots filled with sand.
Located right on the edge of Telluride makes it easy to access the town. We set up camp and walked to get dinner/drinks that night. Quarter-operated showers and flushing toilets. Potable water and dish washing sinks.
Beautiful spot to camp. I think we got lucky that all of the spots weren’t booked. Probably the best views we had all week. Definitely check out the hiking trails in the area. Chief Ouray trail is difficult, so be prepared before you go up the mountain.
One of my favorite campgrounds that we stayed at last year. Quiet, small, and had great views over the hill.
Half of the camping spots are kind of difficult to get to if you don’t have a Jeep/4Runner/Tacoma. Definitely worth the drive up the mountain to see these Alpine lakes. Kind of crowded when we went on Labor Day weekend, but that was to be expected. Make sure you hike up to the other two lakes, they are even more beautiful than the main lake.
I’m sure we were just unlucky, but the campground was very noisy the whole night we were there. Nice view of the lake, though. If you want to reserve a campsite online, do so at least 2 days ahead.
Beautiful views from our campsite. No electricity in this part of the campground, but that also made it less crowded. Definitely coming back 👍
