Friendliest campground in CO!

Such an amazing and laid back place to camp! With two separate tent area, RV camping, and cabins, this place has it all! The bathrooms are always super clean, there is even an outdoor shower(covered of course) available in one of the tent sections. There are sinks available at both tent sections as well. There are also communal areas where you can hang out and meet other campers, you can watch directv in one area as well! There is a short trail that goes up the mountain behind the CG to a small chapel, and a swing that overlooks the river across the road. There is a convenient gas station/convenience/liquor store across the road within easy walking distance. There is a restaurant and bar under two miles as well. June is fantastic, she makes you feel like you are at home. Her hospitality alone is worth stopping by and checking the place out!

Nice place to stay a few days

Stocked general store with beer and liquor, plus food. Spots are a little small, I don’t suggest bringing a large tent or truck. Restrooms are clean, but be sure to bring your quarters. I would give them 4 stars if you didn’t have to pay for showers.

Great Basecamp

Sites are close together but very nice and level, plus there isn’t large gravel which is a lot easier on the tent. The facilities and laundry room were clean. So much to do in this area makes it an excellent choice. Salida is one of the coolest towns inColorado !

Great place to stop for the night

The tent sites are kind of centralized, not a lot of privacy. With that said, the sites were level and the facilities were fine. Good location, not far from crested butte.

My Favorite CG

I have been in love with this campground since I first visited in 2005. It is without a doubt my favorite campground! All the tent sites are great, but my favorite is T4 if your tent is on the smaller side. T4 is tucked away perfectly in the trees, on the bank of the Dolores river. ATT has good reception for calling, but it is Edge service. It will not work for internet. They do have WiFi, but it can be a little slow if everyone is trying to use it at the same time. The bathrooms are fine, they are cleaned daily. You will not be disappointed if you choose Priest Gulch, the scenery and layout for tents and campers can’t be beaten!

Absolute Gem

Easily one of my favorite sites I have stayed at in Colorado! It is an incredible set up for tent camping. The pads are well manicured with very fine rock and very level. The bathrooms and laundry facility are A+, they are located right next to the tent sites. You will be hard pressed to find a more peaceful campground, I can’t wait to be back!

Great Sites

So close to many attractions in BV, Salida, and Leadville! Check them out!

Amazing primitive tent sites

The setting of the primitive sites in the aspens was amazing! Clean bathrooms and laundry room as well. Very inviting and welcoming staff. ATT had a little signal, but I was also able to connect to WiFi at my site.

Roosters crowing at 5 AM

The scenery is nice, but get ready to be woken up by the campgrounds roosters at 5 AM every day. Won’t be back.
