Ouray is in a tight valley, so not a lot of room for RV parks. We got the last spot at this park, with just water and electric for $37 a night plus tax. The sites are REALLY close to each other. Zero privacy. ATVs/Jeeps constantly going through campground. A lot of kids. Pretty loud during the day, but quiet at night. It is walking distance to town and the hot springs (about a 10 minute walk to both). Restrooms were pretty good. Cell signal not a problem as it's in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean "in town" park. Walk the town and no need for a car. Access is easy along with gravel sites and roads. My satellite broke and the park doesn't have cable. Went four days without TV. We had a back-in site toward the rear of the park and it was great being almost alone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Enjoyed our weekend in the charming mountain town of Ouray here very much with a site by the river. Friendly greeting, huge restrooms, location near center of town and a wonderful box canyon within walking distance. Wifi and our AT&T cellular worked well, and we got a few TV channels via antenna. We had a rainy, relaxing Sunday and awakened to snow on the mountain peaks, which made for a beautiful drive to Telluride. Would recommend and return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Would have scored it higher, but the sites are very narrow and piled on top of each other. We were less than 5' away from our neighbor's slideout. Otherwise, the restrooms and showers were great, with a very friendly office staff. Easy access to downtown with lots to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best RV park the area within walking distance to downtown and close proximity to the hot springs. Pet friendly. Spotless restrooms, and super friendly staff make for icing on the cake to the beautiful views of the river. Sites are level and on gravel- a small park but well laid out and can accommodate a big RV. We camped here in a 37" RV and would recommend this location to any fellow RVer wanting to stay in Ouray. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When we arrived, our first site was blocked by a trailer. Our second site was so far off level the front tires were off the ground. At the third site, the auto levelers over-corrected and when we lowered them, the windshield cracked. We had paid for three nights, but after the windshield incident, we decided to just leave after two nights. management refunded one nights rate. She wasn't obligated to do so and we did appreciate it. All previous positive and negative comments that we read are absolutely true. However, we were able to get satellite TV, Wi-Fi bounced in and out but worked, and the traffic on Oak street wasn't an issue. They sprayed a chemical on the road and there was NO dust. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location for walking to Ouray but be prepared for very tight gravel and dirt sites, no TV, wifi was marginal at best. Unable to get satellite TV due to the hills blocking the reception. Barely able to get slides out and the awning was impossible due to size of sites. Some of the staff was friendly, some not. The sites on the river are better but we couldn't get one. Lots of truck traffic on the dirt road adjacent to the back sites. Verizon worked fine. OK for a night or 2 but the crowded sites and lack of wifi and TV made this campground less than average. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed one night here at 4J. We got a site with water and electric only. It wasn't a problem since they had a dump we could use on our way out. The restrooms were clean and light! The lady who helped us in the office was very friendly and accommodating. There is a lot of traffic on Oak Street that runs by the campground but that's not under the campground's control. It's still in a sweet spot for anyone who wants to go into town for restaurants, great hardware store with RV supplies and of course, Mouse's Chocolates. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is based on a two-week stay. The sites are quite close together. It's all about location here, you are two blocks from Main St., Ouray so you can walk to everything in town. The river back-in sites are the best because they provide a cooling breeze and the sound of the river, which is a distraction from how close together the sites are. The Wi-Fi was spotty. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are Very narrow. No putting out awnings and slides can come within feet of your neighbor. Almost ever other pull-through has a tree blocking you from pulling-through. It took a long time to get into the site making the turn and not hitting the utilities. The pull-through sites, without trees blocking you, exit over a big drop from the site onto the road which is a dirt city road that runs through the campground. City trucks are on it 24/7. During my week there, most all backed out of the pull-through sites when leaving. Only a few sites allow satellite reception. I had to move after setting up for DirectTV. No problem with utilities. Sites were level. Campground is within walking of downtown and quiet at night except for the road in front of the pull-through sites. It is only about 12 feet in front of you which is just enough room to park a small car sideways. City water trucks attempt to keep the dust down, but the nearest car wash I found is in Ridgeway. The one place to get fuel in town listed diesel at $4.29 on 6-2013, fill up in Ridgeway before starting down the road to Ouray. Easy walk to the City Hot Springs and park. I would stay here again, but only if I could get into one of three sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They have pull through sites but we opted to back up against the river. It was wonderful to fall asleep to the flow of the river. Perfect location for a quick walk to town. There was no cable access but we enjoyed using the TV room with the microwave available to pop our popcorn. Friendliness of the owners goes a long way! We would definitely stay there again. We love Ouray! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly family owned RV park. The staff is very knowledgeable of the area. Mostly gravel sites with beautiful views of the mountains that surround the little town. Sites were plenty wide/long. I think I drove up on blocks before using the leveling jacks but not unreasonable. We walked from the campground to all the area attractions including the city's hot springs. Yes there is traffic driving by now and then but you're camped in town. The convenience of being close to things far outweighed the little bit of city sounds. I will/would camp there again and in fact can't wait. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Personnel were nice and pleasant upon check in. Campground was level and well maintained. There is a rolling creek that runs through the campground which was very nice. The views of the surrounding mountains from our camp site were also pleasant. The washrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. It also has a laundry facility. Wi-Fi was very slow and sometimes non- workable. Campground is within walking distance to the town of Ouray. Would definitely stay again! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
A family owned RV park, this is conveniently located just blocks off of the Ouray main street. The view of the mountains, from the park, is very scenic. The owners were very helpful with tourist info and our spot was nice and roomy. I would definitely stay in this park, again!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We nearly left after the first night because of the street traffic noise; we were in the pull-through sites along the street (we do NOT recommend them). The campground either needs to put up a sound barrier, or the city needs to enforce the 15 mph speed limit. However, the staff was very nice about letting us move to a riverside back-in site. It was such a huge difference that we extended our stay another two nights (three nights total). The site was huge, with enough room for several toads and a large "living" area next to the river. Amazing views. Walked across the bridge several times for window shopping, shopping, dinner, etc. Easy access to great Jeep trails as well. Very charming town. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient park if you wish to walk to downtown Ouray or to the Hot Springs Pool. Beautiful high mountains hug the park for some great upward views, and nice mountain stream sounds at night. But the negatives were also considerable. My site was ridiculously cramped with tent campers literally so close I could not extend my awning or barely park my car. Wi-Fi showed a signal, but could never connect to my PC or iPad. Owners and staff were business-like and indifferent. Not rude, but not very welcoming or friendly either. Not sure I'd stay here again. Love the town, but there are other camping options nearby that looked more spacious. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park, right in the middle of a beautiful mountain town. Our last trip was a month long, and this was our favorite stop. The park is gravel, but not dusty at all - it's more like small river rock than gravel. The sites are a little close together, but there was plenty of space for our RV and toad. The hookups were good, and the owners were very helpful. In the winter the river that runs behind the park can flow very fast, so you have to keep a close eye on children. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is riverside, but if you have a large MH or fifth wheel with multiple slide-outs it would be best to request a larger pull-through. If you have small kids, pick a spot away from the river. If you have a dog, keep him on a lease and away from the grassy area near the river. That area is for the folks to view the river, not to get their shoes "fertilized." I would have given the park a "ten" if there was hot water available in the showers and if cable TV was available to the sites, not just the TV room. (The staff seemed a little indifferent about the luke-warm water in the showers two nights in a row) We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed camping right on the river. The setting, surrounded by mountains, is beautiful. We enjoyed walking around the corner to cool shops and good restaurants. The thermal pool, also an easy walk, was a treat. The restrooms were spacious and clean. This park and Ouray: delightful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is located within easy walking distance to Main Street. Centrally located and well kept. It's an older park with a RV section and a Mobile home section. The river sites are very nice. WiFi worked well as did Verizon and At&T. Great views of the surrounding mountains. Most sites were tight but we got a 42' MH in fairly easily. Nice staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were able to squeeze into a river spot and enjoyed the sound of the water. The sites are very tight and the roads are gravel. The views of the mountains are spectacular. You can walk to the hot springs. WiFi was excellent. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here. Our original site was in a parking lot like setting and the Wi-Fi would not work. After a day at that site the owners told us they had a cancellation for a river site. That site was great! We backed up right next to the river plus the Wi-Fi worked well. If you are planning on staying there, be sure to ask for a river site. We really enjoyed our week in Ouray and would definitely stay at this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground is conveniently located in town. The facilities are nice, but my only complaint is that the camp spots are too cramped! You barely have room to park your car and when you do it either sticks out into the road or it's right in your from door of your camper. We stayed in our pop up camper and the spot was so little that when we pulled the beds out on the ends, our bed hung right above the river! Good thing the bed didn't break! We would have been floating the river! Don't get me wrong, it is a very nice campground and the people are nice, just need to redesign the layout of camping spots. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park, right in the middle of Ouray; you can walk to the Hot Springs Pool, or anywhere in town. We had a great back-in site on the river and enjoyed listening to the river roll by. The staff was friendly and the park is very clean. This corner of Colorado is one of the most beautiful areas we have visited. Ouray has great restaurants, nice shops and very friendly people. We took a wonderful hike up to the Alpine mine overlook, about 5.5 miles roundtrip: saw a bear, elk and beautiful forest. The park was busy, but quiet with mostly families having a great time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice park: welcomed us with open arms and treated us very nice. The sites are a bit small for todays 30+ft rigs, and with 2 rigs having to be backed into a spot next to the river, it was a tight fit. The pull-through sites are very close together, and when the awning was pulled out, it over-hanged the neighbor's awning (good thing we were all together). Very easy walk to town and easy drive to a lot of sights in the area. The owners/managers of the park seemed to think that allowing their very young kids to ride round and round on a quadrunner during the evening hours was ok. Gathered around the fire trying to talk and have fun was interrupted by this quadrunner going back and forth for an hour or so. Even during the day, these very young people were allowed to drive a motor vehicle inside the park. This is unacceptable after paying a premium price to stay here. Yes, I and my group would be happy to stay here: just keep the youngsters off the motorized vehicles. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at 4J off and on for 12+ years. We have always found the owners very nice and accommodating. Campground is easy walk to town, some sites sit on the river. Clean park, clean restrooms, etc. The owners have done quite a bit to clean this park up and expand it over the years. They do offer discounts for 7+ days stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location within walking distance of the town of Ouray and also the Hot Springs pool. The campsite is small and river sites are right on the river which is quite a drop and not accessible. We were parked next to a small grassy area, which everyone used to walk their dogs (and not everyone picked up afterwards), which made our dogs a bit anxious with so much traffic outside. A better choice was to walk the dogs in the park next to the Hot Springs where there didn't appear to be a leash law, so well behaved dogs were able to stretch their legs! The sites are small and large rigs had their slide outs nearly touching. Towards the end of the campground are permanently located mobile homes, which we were located opposite, but this didn't present a problem to us. The staff were friendly. Wi-fi wasn't strong enough at our site, but sitting on the bench outside the office with our laptops solved this problem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived here for a two night stay only to find out the owner mixed up our reservation and had us down as coming in the following day. I could understand how they could make the mistake as they keep track of reservations on a note pad. They told me they would have to put us in a pull through site for the first day and then we would have to tear down and move to our riverfront site and set up again the following day. He did not even have the courtesy to apologize for the mistake and was very rude simply saying take it or leave it. Every other park was full so we pulled in the pull through which was so tight we could not even put our awning out fully without hitting the RV next to us. There is no grass at any of the sites, only gravel. There was lots of noise from the road in front of us between us and the tent sites. On their website they advertise outdoor hot tub and outdoor swimming pool on property in central area for guest to use. This is totally false advertising, as you have to walk a short walk over to the city of Ouray hot springs pool which is very nice, but you have to pay $10.00 per person. There is no pool or hot tub on the property. The next day we had to tear down camp and move to our riverfront spot. When we made reservations months earlier, we told them we had three year old twins and were concerned about being close to the river. The women said we would have plenty of room between the RV space and the river. The space was so tight that our rear bumper was literally at the edge of the river bank and the river was moving very fast. We had to line up chairs and anything we had to make a barrier and keep an eye on the babies 100% of the time for fear of them falling in the river. The owners were very misleading in their description when we made reservations on the phone. We were very unhappy with this park which is an older park and in need of upgrading. We stayed at Silver Summit RV park in Silverton which is about 20 miles south of Ouray and it was much nicer with large spaces and grass at every site and very friendly management. Never again for us at 4J+1+1 We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the destination for the maiden voyage in our new motorhome. Ouray is a beautiful place. We were here in '94 and '97 and are back again 12 years later. The awesome surroundings of the San Juan mountains and the peace in this small (7 blocks x 9 blocks) Colorado town feed a hunger in the soul. We brought our sons, ages 12 and 10, with us this time and we stayed in the 4J+1+1 RV Park and Campground. To have the RV park right in town was the attraction. No camps on the outskirts for us! Our spot backed right up to the Uncompahgre River and the short stroll to the Ouray The Hot Springs pool was a true bonus. This family owned park and campground made us feel right at home. The showers and restrooms were very clean and well maintained and included a wheelchair accessible shower, stall and a long mirrored vanity. Across the small gravel road was a laundry facility and children's play structure. We had a chipmunk join us a few mornings around breakfast time (yes, he got pancakes, too!). There are barbecue grills and picnic tables at each site which made outdoor dining among the mountains a pleasure. We stayed for a week in early June and were met with typical mountain weather - cloudy, overcast skies and the occasional abrupt downpour - which only added to the charm of this place. You know we'll be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in a 39 ft. 5th wheel, and were packed in so tightly that we couldn't exit our door without practically bumping into the next camper's slideouts. Our picnic table was up against over the next campers sewer hose. Grilling or eating outside was out of question, and parking for our vehicle was a problem. Hosts were pleasant, grounds seemed clean - we didn't stay long enough to check out much more. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I just drove through and this place, is good for big rigs. New gravel and level sites. Looked like 70ft. plus- pull throughs. Seemed like a much nicer place than Timber ridge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice small campground convenient to downtown Ouray. If you would like the option of being able to walk to town, this is the best place to stay. As other reviews have mentioned the campground is older, but very clean. The bathrooms were immaculate. We had no problem with getting in or out, but the campground was not full. There is a trailer park on site, however the owners have done a nice job of making the grounds beautiful. We stayed with two children (8 & 10) and they loved the Hot Springs pool. You can also walk to the pool from the campground. We will return! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has been a family favorite for years. Right in town. You can easily walk anywhere in this little town. A very quick walk to the Ouray Hot Springs, where you can soak and watch bats dart through the sky. We camped right on the river with a glowing aspen on either side of our site. The sites are on the small side, but worth it for such a great location. No WiFi, but several of the coffee and candy shops on Ouray's main street offer it free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Spaces were a little narrow for RV's. No swimming pool on site but you can walk across the bridge to the Hot Springs pool and swim for $8.00. Not a lot of extra amenities but very pretty scenery and deer in campground at night. No designated pet area but people must have cleaned up after their dogs because there was no mess. Easy walking access into town for shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here six weeks this time and four weeks last year. Some of the sites are small (it's an old park). The park is right on the river and within walking distance of almost all of Ouray. The lack of internet is a problem, but the city library has free WiFi and free PC's available to the public. The owners of the park are very nice. The park could stand to be modernized for bigger rigs. Ouray has a pleasant climate and the temperatures seldom get above the low 80's all summer. We didn't use our air conditioners. We did run the heater most nights even in August. We did a lot of four wheel driving. There are many good roads within 20 miles of Ouray. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owned by the Clark Family. Walking distance to the Hot Springs in Ouray. Jeep rentals available in town for 4 wheeling. Laundromat just up the street at the entrance to the campground. Walking distance to downtown area. We camped here in a camper.
As seems typical with many KOAs, this park is overpriced and seems to take customers for granted with the barest of amenities. Our assigned site could not accommodate our electric and sewer hookup. They could not reach - and it's only a 24" trailer! Then they gave us another site, and our awning touched the RV in the adjacent site. Our 3rd site we took, as we were getting tired of moving around and repeated visits to the office. This final site has a fire pit that is 1 foot from a fast flowing ditch. The layouts in this park, it seems to me are poorly designed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the best RV park in Ouray area, about halfway between Ouray and Ridgeway - perfect! Very clean, nice grassy areas, most spots have a nice amount of space. Call early for the best spots as this place fills up fast! We are not normally a fan of KOA but this is a really nice campground. They have a cafe there that we did not try but it seemed to be very popular. Very quiet at night. We were near the little stream so the water noise was very nice. We were here in 2012 and two years later they continue to maintain a nice campground, staff is very friendly. We will return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Luckily we had a "better than others" site. Dirty dusty roads, no Wi-Fi ever existed, no cable, no pool, one small/dirty hot tub. The "creek" is actually a drainage ditch. Low, low voltage during the warm afternoons:105 volts every afternoon. They do have a nice BBQ dinner with live entertainment on weekends. We would probably stay here if we come to Ouray again, because the campgrounds inside of Ouray are packed in like sardines. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to set up camp while you are jeeping in the mountains of Ouray. Our site was great and next to a small stream. We were also able to climb up a trail just across the street and enjoy a short hike. Campground was busy during the day with some noise but quiet in the evening and we were able to be out under the stars. We were not able to get a Wi-Fi signal from our site but since were are camping it was not an issue and we had other ways to access Internet in an emergency. Staff were polite and helpful. We will hopefully be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very professional staff, a beautiful park just outside of town. Lots of trees, sites reasonably spaced. Not really a place for kids, although neither is Ouray, but there is a playground. Wi-Fi horrible unless you're in the laundry room or up a 4 AM. Really, campgrounds in general need to work on this in this! Poor Wi-Fi is just not acceptable in this century! No cable, but I don't think the town gets cable either. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Super friendly owners. They let us check in on arrival at noon and gave us an opportunity to look at several site options. They have gravel and grassy sites. We chose grass by the stream. With all the recent and continuing rain, we would choose gravel next time, but that a weather issue, nothing wrong with the park. We spend three nights here. The place was well laid out and had a nice store. No pool, but a hot tub. The only downside was a ton of speed bumps. I'm all for keeping speeds down, but they were a real pain in the RV. Overall, a great park and a fantastic location. We'll be back for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is located a few miles north of Ouray and off the main highway cutting down on noise! Park is very green (grass) and well maintained. Our site was about 70% grass although not as level as we would like; it took us about 20 minutes and moving our RV 3 times to find an acceptable spot. The "lovely stream" referred to on the web site is actually an irrigation ditch, but did sound nice. The park staff was nice and accommodating. The showers are dated and in need of upgrades, they also weren't the cleanest I've seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't know why anyone would give this park a poor rating. We have been coming here for 7 years. Yes, some of the roads are tight, but we have no trouble getting our 39' motorhome in the sites in the back of the park. The sites in the back are wooded with plenty of room and lots of grass. This is a beautiful campground, yes it is a campground in the woods, not a gravel parking lot like they have in town. The Wi-Fi is good unless the park is full and everyone is on at the same time, then it runs slow - but that should be expected. The couple that own the park are very nice and have a great staff. I told the owner if they had cable I would say it was the best park I have ever stayed in. She explained that they were trying, but it was not available this far out of town. They are looking at other options. The food at the Creekside Cafe is great and prices reasonable. The park is really clean, they had a guy in a golf cart driving around every morning picking up any trash around - including Cigarette Butts (my pet peeve). Same guy was also cleaning fire rings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this campground several times in the past and that is why we continue to return. Usually we are in a tent camper but this time we stayed in a cabin. It was clean and very comfortable. However, I would recommend that a visitor reserve the larger, 2 bedroom cabins if available because the standard cabin was a bit cramped for 4 people. We will certainly return. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Creek runs through and right past many sites. Sprint phone service good and Wi-Fi excellent. Place fills up in the summer. The staff, although very polite and accommodating, aren't always on the same page. Lots are wide and easy to put 6 X 10 trailer next door to coach. We thought place was great and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely little park in a beautiful setting. It was a great home base for us to explore the towns or Ouray and Ridgeway as well as the many trails for our motorcycle and hiking. The park was very clean and quiet. There are two basic areas. We were in the "front" area which was nice but the "back" area seemed to have more space and there was lots of grass. We will probably opt for that area when we return. We also enjoyed strolling around the campground every evening - it was just lovely. One of the nicest KOA's I've seen. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very well run and maintained campground. Owners very involved in the daily running of the park. Rules are enforced, which I like. Loose dogs are not tolerated in the campground. We spent a week here and next time plan to stay a month or longer. Live music on the weekends and a good cafe on grounds. It is an older campground but so are most in this area, so some of the sites are not big rig friendly. A reservation is needed much of the summer as this park is popular with many campers coming to Ouray. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here out of necessity, owners so impressed with themselves, they can't see past their noses. Campground is extremely old and it shows, no updates or real money spent on improvement, too bad. It is in a beautiful location, too bad the greed obviously runs deep. Would never stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. It is kept very clean. The south side of the campground has a lot of grass. The north side does not; it is all gravel. The Kreek Side Cafe is really good. Weekends they serve BBQ made on site. They are very good with their BBQ. The stream (very small) runs right through the middle of the park. Bring cash they have a $10.00 minimum for credit cards. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is not big rig friendly. We have a 40 foot motorhome and asked for a larger site. Taking the office recommended route to our site, we encountered two trees with low hanging limbs that scraped the top of our motorhome. We had some difficulty getting our motorhome into the site because the road was narrow and the site was at an odd angle. It took three attempts to get it parked. I told the park workers about the low limbs and they were not trimmed during the two days we were there. The water pressure is low, fluctuating from 25 to 40 lbs. Not all sites are 50 amp. The 50 amp hookups were installed as an afterthought. Ours was inches off the ground and difficult to hook-up. This campground is in a beautiful location. It is OK for the RVs less than 40 foot but larger rigs might want to stay elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were happy to find this KOA just 4 miles from downtown Ouray. We stayed in a premium pull through site for 8 nights, which had more than enough length to fit our 38' fifth wheel and truck. The staff was friendly. The sites were clean. All sites have some shade. We had lots of room on the starboard (entry side) of our RV site, however the port (hook up) side was only about 6 feet from our neighbor. Since the KOA is away from the main highway, there was no road noise. The only negative we have about this KOA is that there is NO CABLE TV. After a long day hiking and trail riding, it's nice to come home and pop on the TV. Come on Ouray KOA. If you want big rigs and first class RV rigs to stay more than a day or two, you have to supply basic amenities like Cable TV or at least rent Satellite boxes for the 95% of RVers that do not have a dish. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is absolutely the best park we have ever seen for the scenery of the surrounding area, as well as the scenery around your camping area. The staff was friendly and helpful. They do have rental jeep type vehicles to see the surrounding area, but you need to get your reservations in early, as there are only so many of them available. The only thing we did not like about the park is their "Dog Walk", because it is located on a steep incline, and it is not maintained. Most people were taking their animals on a hiking trail in the middle of the park, and don't clean up after them. Management needs to address this problem and actually make the park "Pet Friendly" as advertised. Once this is accomplished, this could be the absolutely best KOA all around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in a spot on the stream and found it to be one of the nicest KOA's we have stayed. Sites are relatively spacious and the campground is clean. There is a cafe on site for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Food was good. Be aware that in peak season this place is packed and very busy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It may be the nicest KOA we have seen. Great area under large pines. Our dog loved walking on the soil instead of gravel. Meals served in the parks cafe. Ouray is the greatest for Jeep traveling. Expensive, but all parks in the area are expensive. They don't list any weekly or monthly rates. We would stay a month if we can get a better rate. Beautiful San Juan Mountains all around. Will stay again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I had a hard time understanding how the reviews of this campground varied so drastically. Now I know. We were here for one week. Some of the staff was great. Others were rude and unfriendly. One day the bathrooms and showers were clean the next day they were filthy with only a swipe with a mop. Our fire ring was dirty when we got there and was never cleaned. Wi-Fi was sketchy as we periodically lost our connections. This campground is the best in the area. I truly think that there is a little room for improvement here. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
I had camped here about 28 years ago and had great memories and was not disappointed! The staff was the most helpful, and curious of any campground ever! There was a lot to do, music entertainment on the weekends, a well stocked store, lots of trees, 2 restrooms/shower houses on the property. Even massage therapists were available at a very reasonable rate! It is a bit more expensive than other campgrounds $2-3 per night to be exact but the amenities, atmosphere, security, grounds were well worth it! They even had jeeps for rent to use on the passes! The owners were the absolute best! A beautiful stream run right through the middle of it all. Already have reservations for next July! We loved it! And no there are absolutely $0 extra charges for use of showers, gesh! Plus they do have a game/laundry room and hot tub. Best place we ever stayed! Scouts honor! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The Ouray KOA camping cabins are a yearly trip for us. We love the Ouray area and always stay here for a week or two during the summer. It is conveniently located right outside of Ouray. We have never been disappointed with our stay and we've been going there for about 8 years now. Their camping cabins are always clean and the locations are great. The restrooms and showers are always clean. The restaurant always offers up really good food at a great price. Can't wait to go again. Definitely recommend! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
It is the nicest KOA we've ever stayed at. Friendly staff, amazing café, hot tub, little creek running through the place. I wish there was a place like this everywhere we go! Nice location, quiet, easy to find, just look for the sign. (By the way, it is pronounced "you-RAY"). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for a day of rest after several days of dry camping. Although the staff was nice, the sites were tight and close together. Luckily the park was not crowded. We had to move from our first site because the shore utilities were in an awkward place and our electric cable was not long enough to reach. There was no fire pit at our site, only an elevated bar-b-q grill. There was an additional charge to use the showers. The store was sparsely stocked. I would not voluntarily camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here before, and enjoy the location out of town. There are many sites for this location, and some of the sites are pretty close together. The people in the office were very helpful in getting us a reservation during the busiest time of the summer. While you are there, eat at their Kafe, their hamburgers are fabulous after a day of 4x4ing. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice campground. Ouray is a resort town but very isolated and has a limited amount of usable land. This campground is open and shaded. The folks running it have owned it 21 years and more than accommodating. We found not having cable was no big deal and although they have no pool, it is hard to compete with the Ouray Hot Springs pool in town. Just drive the five minutes there and go swim in 97 degrees of relaxation. We found the campground to be a great starting point to visit Ouray, Silverton, Ridgeway State Park, Box Canon Falls, and all the San Juan Mountains have to offer. We will be coming back and highly recommend this campground if you are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not bad for a KOA. Had more of a campground feeling rather than just an overnight stopping place like most KOAs. Some of the pull through sites were a little tight. We saw 2 RVs in the pull through section back to back with just a few inches between their slide outs. We had a back in site on the stream. Our site was a little short for our 32' 5er and TV. We had to wedge our truck between a fence and our 5er to keep from sticking out in the road. Campground was quiet at night. Each site had a picnic table and combination fire ring/grill. We rented a jeep during our stay. The owner was friendly but not very helpful or knowledgeable about the jeep trails in the area. Jeep rentals are limited to daily mileage unlike rentals in town. (800) 562-8026 We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was wonderful, found us a wonderful site despite the fact that we arrived without a reservation on Labor Day weekend. Nicely located between Ridgway and Ouray. We would definitely stay here again. Free Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice campground. We had a nice pull-through site which was big rig friendly and shaded. This camp ground has lots of trees and a creek running through it. It appears that all of the sites have picnic tables and fire rings. The employees were very nice and helpful. I had breakfast at the Kreekside Kafe and it was very good. The campground is located a few miles north of Ouray, but is very convenient to town, area Jeep trails as well as to Telluride and Ridgway. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park, very clean restrooms & showers. Very friendly staff, check in was busy but moved quickly. I would have given this place a 9 rating until we went to eat at the BBQ/cafe. The owners were the loudest, laughing and drinking while working. Poor display of leadership. Take that away and a great park. I'd stay again, just not eat there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed this campground. It’s a busy campground the staff are friendly. After we settled into our site one of the staff stopped by to see if we needed anything from town. In the morning I was sitting outside reading with a cup of coffee and a deer walked within ten feet of me. They seem to keep motor homes, tents and trailers apart. Nice well kept grounds, great location for exploring area. Will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice KOA and we have been staying here on our Colorado trips since the early 1980's. There is a cafe on site where you can get breakfast, BBQ, and other tasty meals. Jeeps are available for rent on site. Friendly staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this campground a number of times over the years and always enjoy our stay. However in late June, July, and early August, it is very crowded. There are a lot of very nice sites, although some of the pull throughs and full hookup sites on the stream are all gravel with no grass. There are plenty of grassy and shady water and electric sites. Cafe on site has good food at decent prices. Jeeps can be rented on site at competitive rates. Friendly staff. Clean unisex restrooms and showers are available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at this campground. The office was a little busy, but everyone was very helpful. We especially enjoyed the Sunday night barbeque and bluegrass music. The campground was well-maintained and clean. We stayed over the Fourth of July and the park was full, but we didn't feel crowded. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Colorado. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was one of the worst KOA's we have been to in a long time! This campground has made it to my "never go back places", the rates were high and the check in was a cluster! The staff(workers) were rude and the sites very close together. Don't waste your money at this one!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great campground. 4 miles from Ouray. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wonderful mountain scenery and easy access to Black Canyon of the Gunnison. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a good park with all the basic needs for a successful camping stay. The sites are level, all the hookups are functional, and there is a picnic table on each site. Satellite access for TV works well. The view of the surrounding and sheer mountain is terrific. On the negative side, the park is really a large gravel parking lot, and the park itself is not particularly attractive, even though the surrounding view is. We would stay here again, as this is a good jump-off point for all the surrounding activities in Ouray and nearby Silverton. I definitely would rather stay in Ouray than drive my RV up the narrow, winding road to Silverton. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is in a scenic setting with easy access to 4 wheel drive and hiking trails. The owners and staff are friendly, helpful, and easy to deal with. The park is capable of handling any size RV and the campsites are roomy with great views. The bathrooms have been recently updated and are in excellent condition. And the Wi-Fi is accessible from any area of the park for easy computer use. This is an excellent place to stay to see the San Juan Mountains and to enjoy Colorado. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Positive points are that they are close to town and nice owners. Beyond that this is a gravel parking lot and there are many other options in Ouray. Very noisy road, as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We reserved a cabin for our parents and an RV spot for us. We were able to be close to one another. When we backed in, we had a little trouble and the owner was there with a smile to help us. The restrooms were spotless, the coffee service area in the morning was as well. We had a little trouble getting our RV level but I suspect if we'd have moved over a bit it would have been perfect. The hookups worked great, we had no trouble getting good Wi-Fi. We were close to the river to take advantage of the river walk. Our stay was fantastic! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is within walking distance to town and close to 4 wheeling trails which was nice and the river walk which we did nightly with our dog. However, it is basically a big gravel parking lot with no privacy whatsoever. The Wi-Fi was pretty bad unless you were close to the office. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked about local trails to do with our jeep. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful setting in a mountain town. A few small trees but not too much shade. It looks to be one of the easier to get into big rig parks in the area. Easy access to the town. Wi-Fi is kind of spotty as some of the other reviewers mentioned. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first time to Ouray. Found this park on the internet and we lucked out. We Loved it! The owners and hosts were extremely friendly! They personally showed us to our site. We constantly saw them around the park checking on people and asking how everything was. Bathrooms are older, but they were always clean. Hot, fresh coffee in the morning (with cream and sugar available). There is a river, we asked to be away from it because of our kids, and they said it was no problem. We stayed 6 nights and will be back next year. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Older park with gravel sites, uneven bumpy interior roads. Very friendly office staff. Our pull through site was wide and long. Water pressure is dangerously high. Very convenient to town. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have only two complaints about this campground. The spaces are narrow and trailers/motor homes are packed in here like sardines. Our neighbor's canopy nearly touches our trailer when extended. And, the WiFi is VERY slow. I realize we are staying through a holiday (July 4th), but wider spaces and upgraded Wifi (to handle the extra use) would be nice. Other than that, the campground is acceptable. A little beautification (trees, grass)wouldn't hurt. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The laundry was clean with an adequate number of washers and dryers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in a back-in river site. It was very nice and the river walk was very enjoyable. However, it was a long walk to the restroom/showers and hard to find in the dark of the night. Otherwise, everything worked well including the Wi-Fi. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our GPS indicated that this address was 1 mile away in the downtown Ouray area (which is incorrect) - so do look out for the Ouray RV park sign about 1 mile north of downtown Ouray. We will probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting! We camped in a back-in site. Wi-Fi was good. The road in is a little bumpy, but it adds to the rustic setting. Breakfast and dinner available at the cafe. We saw a deer run through the park this morning! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a big gravel lot. The sites are NOT even close to level. We were very close to the Wi-Fi antenna and reception was good to not at all. The water pressure is around 100 psi so you need a regulator. All sites are back in. The waterfronts are up a berm, over a fence, across a walking path and down to the river. The bathrooms are clean but "rustic" and need to be updated. The hosts are very nice but don't seem to know to much about the town. I would NOT stay here again on a bet. I feel that the park is way over priced. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second summer we parked here. Name has been changed to "Ouray RV Park & Cabins." New owners and camp hosts go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. They serve coffee in the morning and popcorn in the evenings. They have upgrade plans for near future. There are 11 long pull-through 50 AMP sites, 20 back-in 30 AMP river sites, 27 shaded 30 AMP sites and a number of tent sites. Sites are gravel, level, and medium to large in size. Laundry room has more than an adequate number of good machines. Room is very clean and has a book exchange. We liked the park last year and love the park this summer. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful. The town of Ouray (downtown is within walking distance) is near perfect, and the weather in the summer is cool and mostly dry. We are planning on coming back next summer since we still have not exhausted the many things to do in and around the town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A large open gravel parking lot with back in RV sites. The hosts were polite but that's about it. Most area information came from Police or Tour Operators. The WiFi is present but only strong enough in the South 1/3 of the park. The water pressure is estimated to be over 100 psi so a regulator between the faucet and the hose is a necessity! Beautiful river trail to the Town and Spa just outside the park over a log fence. The site we were assigned had about 3 packs of cigarette butts so it appears there is no site inspection. This is not a bad park but next time we'll try another. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean park with room sites. Clean bathrooms and convenient laundry room. Convenient to downtown Ouray. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Campground sits on the beautiful Uncompahgre River and has a 2 mile walking trail. Very pet friendly. Will always be my choice in Ouray! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am surprised no one has reviewed this RV park that has been here for many years. It is older but clean. There is one island of backins to each other but think those people are here for the whole summer season. And an island of pull through sites, plenty large for very big rigs. Then a long row of backins along the river. This is what you ask for! There is a nice path along the river with only fairly short walk into the pools in town. The whole park is gravel but each spot has a picnic table. The views from the park are outstanding: canyon walls on both sides and the mountains behind Ouray at the end. This is our third time here and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
