Get out there and enjoy Colorado

Unique area - eleven mile canyon

Very nice campground with south Platte River front sites. We took our 19’ trailer and there are some trailer friendly sites but I would say this campground has better tent sites than trailer sites. The campground is clean and the views of the rock formations in the canyon are spectacular. The fishing was great. The mornings were cold. The host does a good job caring for the campground. There is a nice overlook trail (steep but short) right off the campground that is worth doing to get views of the reservoir. There is no access to the reservoir from the canyon. The road in the canyon can be bumpy and not great on your rig. There is a house near by with two dogs that woke us up one night and bark a lot during the day too FYI…

Great views of lake Dillon

We found this time of year (fall) a great time to visit this campground. It’s pretty busy in the summer but not as much during fall. The sites with water views are very nice. We had site #51 and we loved it. This campground is easy to get to, is close to Dillon, Frisco, Silverthorne and Break, and it has the best views of the Dillon reservoir. There are a few ways to get down to the reservoir from the campground. Makes for a nice quick hike. There is also a short hike at the campground entrance that give you great views. The site was clean and the hosts are active.

The best views of the collegiates

Dry camping at its best. The late season camping offers a more quiet and private experience at this campground. Fishing was great. Hiking is fun and the stars were amazing at night. No host this time but that is ok. Bathroom was functional. There is no water or trash at this campground. Sites are nicely spaced and their well maintained.

Great RV Park by the Rio Grande

We stayed at this RV Park a few days after an early snow storm hit the area. We needed electrical hookup and a spot by the river :). This campground exceeded our expectations. The spot was beautiful, clean and the managers were very friendly.

Beautiful area north of Steamboat

Very secluded, spacious campsites. Nice 3.5 hike around the like but you end up on the road. The excercise was good for us. Small lake great for canoes, kayak and paddle boarding. Some fishermen. No host. No water. Trash available. Clean campground with beautiful views and sunsets. Visited Pearl Lake and Steamboat Lake State Park while there.

The entire area is a paradise

It’s a hidden gem of this part of Colorado. This campground has a loop by the Coñejos River and that is where we stayed. Campsite was big and they are nicely spread out. Didn’t see the host much but they campground is kept well. No cell signal. We really enjoyed our 4 nights there but with the shaded spot we got getting consistent solar charge was a challenge. Either way, we will come back next year.

Quiet and beautiful

This campground is located about 15 minutes from Taylor Reservoir. You don’t have views of the reservoir but the campground is beautifully settled between pine trees. Yet, not enough shade to block our solar intake. No cell service. You have to drive to the reservoir to get it. The hosts were great and kept the place very cleaned and maintained. Some sites are more private than others. There is a nice hike close to the campground and the Taylor River is just a few minutes away. All sites had electrical hook ups. We loved it here!

Ample campground - great week!

This is a great campground if you prefer bigger campsites. Only a few sites have direct views of the reservoir but almost all have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Busy summer but the sites are large. Lots of loose dirt but it’s what you would expect. Several trails take you to the reservoir, there is also a short 1.5mi hike at the entrance of the campground. There is water, good cell service and several bathrooms.

Quiet yet close to a lot of action

We’ve stayed here before and we love it! The sunrise and sunset views of the river, canyon and Mt. Princeton are impressive. Sites are large and renovated a few years ago. Dogs were entertained watching the chipmunks walk in front of them. Great hike near by. Great fishing too walking distance. Short driving distance to Buena Vista and/or Salida. Excellent cell service. Clean bathrooms. No showers, no available water, no trash. Pack it in, pack it out.

Lots to do!

If you like water activities, hot days and cool nights this is the place for you! We went for the hiking and fishing but many were there with kayaks, paddle boards and other water toys. It’s far enough from the marina that you don’t hear boats going in and out. The views are great and the drive is spectacular. Zero cell service. You need to drive 25 min into the town of basalt for service. Fly fishing is amazing! Our site had great views but it was difficult to park our trailer. Some of the sites are tight.

Come here for views and location!

Views are stunning!! Best location to camp near Ouray as the hiking (right off the campground) is amazing! Close drive into town. Sites are nice. Some closer together than others. It gets busy so make reservations. Host was attentive.

Great basecamp to explore the area

Great campground. Two main loops, one with hook ups and one without. Each loop has a host and they do a good job of keeping the campgrou nd cleaned and reservations honored. The cute town of Redstone is just a couple miles down the road. Nice walk from campground. Marble is about 30min and they have the best BBQ place - Slow Groovin. Check it out. There are also great challenging hikes. Next time may rent an ATV

Happy to be back here!

Great views of the water. Sites are nicely distanced. It was cold and windy during our stay but the scenery made up for it. Campground is nicely taken care of and the host was helpful. Can’t wait to come back!

Great spot

Location is great! A mile walk into the quaint town of Redstone, 20min drive to Carbondale or Marble (opposite direction). Fun hikes near by and great fly fishing at the Crystal River (walking distance from campground). Hosts were great. We had site #1. Shared site but spacious with great views. No cell reception anywhere until you get to Carbondale. We drove into Redstone to get some WiFi bear the Inn.

Loved it!

Beautiful area with plenty of water activities and fishing near by (Yampa River). Nice views of the reservoir from our site. Sites are a bit close but the views make up for it. Short drive to Steamboat where you find restaurants, shopping and great hikes.

Great spot!!!

Great base camp for all the activities around you. Good hiking and fishing near by. Absolutely stunning views when you are at the reservoirs. Bring your kayak if you have one! There are no views of the lake from the sites but some of the sites have nice views of the mountains. The campground is nice and the sites are spread out which was great. We had tons of mosquitos which is the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars. Even with the mosquitos, we would go back!

Stunning views!

If you like to be by water and enjoy quiet and amazing views this is the place to be. The campground was remodeled in 2016 and the host keeps it in great condition. There is not a lot of shade but the temperatures stayed comfortable due to the proximity to the river. There was a nice breeze took. Couple of hikes very close. The tent area it’s right on the river. However, it gets crowded. The sites are nice space and not too close.

We went back!

Loved it so much the first time that we came back! For the best views, make sure to book in the lower loop. We stayed in site 11. Not the best views of the reservoir but decent. You can hear the waterfall. Campground sites at close to 10k feet in elevation. Keep that in mind. We enjoyed a great little hike around the reservoir plus amazing fly fishing the next morning. Can’t wait to get back!

Middle of the forest

Very quiet, serene campground! We are anglers and we chose site #26, which is closest to the river. It’s a hike down but doable! The probablemente was that the water was too high to fish. We will come back when water levels are down. There were some flies and mosquitos but better when the breeze came thru. Very peaceful and nice campground in the middle of the forest.

Beautiful site

Views of the reservoir are so beautiful! We stayed on site #8. Nice size, slight views of the water, it was nice! The fishing was great, the hiking was nice, the bathroom is impecable! Kudos to the hosts!!!! We will be back in August.
