Very green and beautiful. Do watch out for poison ivy, or poison something. We were there with a large group and a couple people got it. Without even leaving camp you can hike a little stream/river to a little pool. Lots of trees and shade. Take a drive and visit Slide Rock and also take in the views!

Absolute yes on this one!

Our campsite wasn’t huge, but wow! We hiked a couple of trails and enjoyed beautiful views and the beach was very close! There were some basic showers to wash sand off. I totally recommend this camp if you love the beach and the coast!

If you like water, you’ll like it here!

This campsite was great. We had a stream nearby that the kids all played in and we all bought water shoes and tubes in town and floated the river! We actually came to Pagosa for a family reunion and it was loads of fun for everyone.

Love, Love, Love

The views here were great. This area had all the things we needed. I recommend north Jenny lake - beware though, Jenny lake gets crazy busy so perhaps try one of the other lakes. We went to String Lake for lunch and it was lovely. There are many great trails for bikes. Jackson Lake Lodge has some fabulous views out the back on its balcony.


We just barely returned from our trip to Yellowstone National Park. I highly recommend it to everyone! We stayed a few nights at different hotel places inside the park. We did so many hikes! We saw thousands of buffalo and all of the most famous attractions. If you want to see elk just lazing about the town then go to Mammoth. I highly recommend doing things like the Grand Prismatic and Ol’ Faithful in the morning before 10:00 because after that the parking lots get very busy. We ate lunch in several different picnic areas and each one had a restroom. Dont forget to see the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and also the Huge waterfall! Bring your camera and your sunscreen!

Fabulous History

We stayed inside Mesa Verde for two nights. the camping was good and they even had showers and laundry you could use. Make sure you go to the visitors center first thing and book your tours of the different cliff dwellings!

Black Canyon Campground

Our family camped at Black Canyon last July and LOVED IT. I wish we would have stayed more than just a few days. We had deer around our campsite (we had to have our dog on a leash because at that time of year the deer have babies and get fiesty. The deer at our campsite didn’t mind our dog and just seemed curious.) The views on our hikes were breathtaking and we even saw a little bear! There are hikes for all ages, many as you drive around the top are short walks to the edge to look at the views. I also recommend going to the visitors center while you are there.

A good lake

We went in July - so bring bug spray if you go at the same time we did! Louis Lake is beautiful. There are some rustic cabins just next to it that you can rent out. Be aware that there isn’t electricity, but there are lots of canoes and kayaks you can take on the lake as well as life vests to wear. If you drive a little ways from there you can do an AMAZING hike that ends in beautiful waterfalls and a “slide rock” that is very smooth and you can slide over the falls. Park at Bruce’s (it’s a good parking spot) then hike Popo Aggies trail to the falls.
