I'm not sure what campground the other people are talking about but we stayed there for almost 3 weeks and this is what they have. Decomposing toilets (no flush), some sites with electric (you pay $5 per night extra for them), no sites with full hookups, dump station but the fresh water was not working, fresh water available around the loops. This is a FS campground but it is run by the RMRC concessionaires. Most of the sites are very long and can accommodate large rigs but most will need a little leveling. You can reserve through "" or but it is not a very busy campground except on weekends. It is 17 miles north of Dolores then another 5 miles on a FS road (paved). There is almost NO phone service but occasionally we could get a signal for the computer and could text on the phone. We love this place with its spectacular views of McPhee Lake and easy access to the boat ramp. It is quite open with very few trees and can get quite hot in the summer but in September it is comfortable. We camped at McPhee/House Creek in a Motorhome.

BE AWARE: There are some discrepancies on the prices as far as what the website says, what ReserveAmerica says, and what you find out when you get here. There are only 4 sites with full hook-ups and you have to pay $25/night for these. There are also about 16 electric only sites. When you make a reservation through ReserveAmerica, they only collect the basic fee; be prepared to pay for other services when you get here. This is a very nice, quiet park in beautiful SW Colorado. Even on a summer weekend the park was almost empty. The host was very helpful and sells firewood and ice. A short drive down the hill is the reservoir. About 6 miles away is a convenience store where you can pick up bait and a fishing license (It's the Phillips gas station). Dolores is small and Cortez is about 12 miles away, do try to come with all you need. We camped at McPhee/House Creek in a Motorhome.

This is the new McPhee Recreation Complex, run by the USDA Forest Service (not the old House Creek campground which is on the other side of the reservoir). The sites vary in size, but some are large enough for 40' MH. Boat ramp is a short drive from the campground. Campground has nice trails with incredible views over the reservoir (500 feet below) and some Colorado peaks. Only four full hookups, 16 with electric and some with water. We camped at McPhee/House Creek in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground in the San Juan Forest near Delores and is very convenient to Mesa Verde National Park. There are only two sites with full hook ups. These rent for $25 a night. Eighteen sites have electrical hook ups and cost $20. Sites with no hook ups are $15. Golden Passport holders get $7.50 off. Reservations can be made and are recommended for the full hookups and for people who just have to have electricity. The park rarely fills so you stand a good chance of getting a site without reservations. There are flush toilets and pay showers. Each of the two loops have hosts who are very friendly and helpful. I loved this campground. We camped at McPhee/House Creek in a Travel Trailer.
