Stunning views of rock walls surrounding Ouray

We just had one night but loved it. We put our little tent into one of the more private lots (#27), about 30m from the car, which have us a lot of privacy. I woke up to stunning views of the peaks, visible directly from the tent :).

The hosts are great, the bathrooms clean, and the town is just a 5-10 minute drive. I would definitely come back.

Nice site along the creek (traffic up nearby road audible but not too loud)

There are about 8 sites, most of them relatively close to each other (within sight). When we arrived ---for two days--- bathrooms were in a bad shape. But the campground host seemed to just have arrived, and the next day things looked better (still, it's close to Ouray and relatively highly frequented; incl. people stopping by on their way up Camp Bird rd to the various trailheads). Fire rings at this site do not have grills.

Currently closed (as of late 2020) for construction

It looks like most construction is finished (the sites look great: new fire rings w/ grills), newly level standard sites; decent space between sites) but the campground is still closed as of 5/19/21. Up the road, there is Thistledown campground (missing from The Dyrt) with 8 sites.

Good for the price

We stayed for one night at one of the double priced sites above the lake. The sites are spaced far enough from each other, so it is quiet even when the campground is full. Firewood is available for $7 per bundle. There were small flies but they did not bite (the lake is being refilled which apparently makes them come out of the sand at the beach). Bathrooms were very clean. Good hiking options close by (we highly recommend Castle Rock).

Peaceful site, beautiful views

Had a wonderful stay right next to the lake. Woke up to the sounds of birds. Sites include RV/van sites (2?) and at least six tent only sites. Each night only one other site was occupied. Views of surrounding mountains are beautiful. San Bernado Peak is a great rewarding (largely off-trail) hike right on the other side of the highway, with views of Lizard Head and more.
