Nice quiet campground against the bluffs a couple blocks from downtown. There is a nice covered deck overlooking a grassy yard to sit and sip your complimentary coffee and quick breads in the morning. They have a group fire pit, laundry and cabins for your non-Rving relatives. Owners are a warm, friendly couple ready to share their town. No website but they do have Email firstname.lastname@example.org Excellent location to explore surrounding mountains by foot or jeep. - readontheroad

This was our second stay here. It is down a gravel road but easily managed by RVs. The sites were a little hard to maneuver, although some look like a pull through, if someone else is in the next site you have to back in. Ours was up a hill. Once in, the sites are very beautiful with views of the lake. On our last visit we rented a jeep from Castle Lakes, (they have 2) and drove the Alpine Loop. Fishing is available without a license for $7 limit 4. We caught nice sized trout. - jem11

This is a nice quiet family campground at 9200' along the road to Cinnamon Pass. Even though it is a great place to stay for an ATV/jeep trip on the Alpine Loop, they are not allowed to be ridden inside the campground except when leaving or returning from an excursion. That keeps the noise down considerably. The fishing lakes are great for kids of all ages, and I appreciate that this is not the kind of campground that attracts "loud partiers." We spent two weeks in July here, and used the heater nearly every night; a very welcome relief from my south Texas summer. There is no TV signal (I don't use satellite TV on vacation), no phone signal, and only a very rudimentary WIFI signal around the lodge. The beauty of the location more than compensates for the lack of electronic amenities. It is a 20 minute drive into Lake City, but the road is good and the trip scenic. - Major Dad

(Note: The owner of this park had a serious accident just prior to our arrival. This review assumes that the facilities would be much the same or better if he was present. The cooperation of neighbors and seasonal campers suggest that the owners are good people.) The location is beautiful, mountains all around. Utilities worked fine, wifi is limited to in or near the office. Although a fishing and "off road" park it was peaceful (aside from one camper who cared less about who was bothered). A previous reviewer noted a dirt road access (CR 30). It is about the best dirt road you will ever drive in the mountains and do not be concerned. five miles past the campground is 4-wheel country. There is a lot of wildlife in the area so use caution. - gumper

High on the southern 'cliffs' overlooking Lake San Cristobal, this "no frills" campground offers excellent views and that often-elusive "peace and quiet!" Providing a convenient "base" for sight-seeing, fishing, or "four wheeling" any of the areas spectacular four wheel drive roads, Wupperman Campground is an excellent alternative to commercial campgrounds. We camped here many years ago when out two sons were young and the "remote-nest" of Wupperman gave them more of a true outdoor experience than they would have. - RFP

This county campground is spread out in various spots along the south side of gorgeous Lake San Cristobel. I stayed at the loop that was right on the waterfront, but other loops were perched higher on a bluff. No hookups and only pit toilets, but there was 1 dump station. Picnic tables had seen better days and it didn't appear that cleaning fire pits was one of the host's duties. But, despite all this, it is one of the most scenic camp sites I've ever stayed at! I launched my kayak literally 20 feet from the RV and the lake was calm and peaceful: only a few small fishing boats and another kayaker on the water. My dog enjoyed swimming from our site as well. I was able to get both ATT and Verizon cell service here, but not 3G so don't expect lots of speed. Overall, a lovely spot to stay a few days. - WinnieViews

This is a bare bones campground run by the Hinsdale county just outside of Lake City on beautiful Lake San Cristobal. We camped here for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. We caught trout everyday and had a great spot on the Lake. There is water to fill your camper and a dump station, and a very friendly camp host who are just the best. This is a beautiful part of Colorado the lake is located along the Alpine loop, and Lake City is a nice little mountain town. There is a great bakery on the way into town, and if you like fudge they make it homemade at the Sportsman's outdoor shop. Lake City is a bit of a challenge to get to but really worth the drive. The campground has spots right on the lake, or on a bluff overlooking the lake. - sourdoughought

One of the nicer RV parks we have stayed in. We booked late for a 4th of July weekend and the only spot left was RIGHT next to the showers and it was set up in a way that we would have had to pull in backwards and run our sewer and hookups under the rig but we were happy to take what we could get because we had an engagement that weekend there.
I requested that if someone cancelled that I would like a better spot and they said that they would let me know. Well, they never did and we got there to find that not only did we get a different spot but we got one of the better spots in that part of the campground with lots of trees and relative privacy.
We saw where we COULD have been and while it wouldn't have been terrible it would not have been great. The spots in front of the shower are typical zero privacy small spaces, but ours was great.
The restrooms and showers were immaculate, the staff super friendly and helpful and the RV park very quite with lots of residents living full time there.
We saw the other RV parks in Lake City, this one makes them all look pathetic, the others have you RIGHT next to your neighbors with zero room or privacy.
Will definitely return here again! - CORockies

Park was nearly full, so we were lucky to have gotten one of the last sites, which was roomy enough compared to other parks in the area, especially those in town, that shoehorn you in. Clean bathrooms, attentive staff. Only used it as a base camp while we were off to experience the sights during the day, so no comment on the "RV park experience." Only drawback is they only take cash or check, no credit cards. Tough if you want to reserve a space while you are on the road a few days out. - Bull Durham
Jul 2010 - $31.00
We had a terrible site! It was supposed to be 50' and wide but was a shared driveway with the next site and barely had room to park our truck. Site and road was rocky (not gravel) and tough to walk on without twisting your ankle. Waist high weeds were about 6' from our door side so we had little space to sit in. Mosquito's were thick because of the weeds. Owner charged us $31.00 at check in and handed us a brochure about the park. When I read it, it said all sites were $28.00. Next morning, I went to office and asked her about it and she said we had a "premium" site. - number one

Season is winding down so the campground was quiet. Owners are very friendly and helpful. This is not a big campground so a big rig can be difficult to maneuver into a spot. The campground is in a good location, it is possible to walk to town. The community fire pit and free coffee are a nice touch. The laundry room, showers and bathrooms were very clean. The wifi was slow and there is no cable tv, no campstore. There are no camping discounts so with tax, we thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. But we would stay here again. - mohocamper

The owners are very friendly Oklahoma people. This is one of the cleanest campgrounds I have stayed at. The campers are very friendly. There is a community fire pit lit in the evenings and free coffee in the morning.
This campground is not fancy but friendly. The campground is perfect for the area because there's a lot of 4-wheel activities in the area so people are gone during the day. In the evening, there are cute little restaurants to go to.
The only suggestion I would make. There needs to be better signs where the office is located. - buitts

Park isn't fancy and doesn't have any fancy amenities, but it is off the main drag, clean and well kept, and the owners and camp hosts are very friendly. Owners are very concerned about well being of campers and keeps tabs when folks heading off 4 wheeling to make sure they get back ok. We've stayed here twice and it's a been a pleasure. - Kevin & Liz
Aug 2015 - $36.00
A wonderful park, we really wanted to stay longer. It is a small park and backing into the sites is not for the newbie or faint of heart but once parked you are glad you came. It is another of those parks with a great setting and really, really nice owners who make sure everything runs smoothly. The laundry and the showers were so clean we happily used them instead of our own and I noticed others did as well. There is a nice pavilion with a few gas grills available for use. - PBuds

Wife and I stayed here with some additional friends. Our friends stay each year at Highlander. As first timers there, we really enjoyed this facility. The owners really made us feel at home. The altitude was a bit to get used to, but all else was great!!! We would definitely go back next year! - TXRVKing2013

The park was clean and owners were very friendly. The donut breakfast and pot luck dinner was nice. Lots of 4-wheeling. We did not like how crowded everything was. We were so close to our neighbors that we could not open our awning and had to park our car so close to the camper that we could not open the door all the way. Our site was a gravel parking lot. We will look for other arrangements next time in Lake City. - squeek33

There are some sites that are suitable for small trailers -- not big rigs. Campground is very well located, directly above (literally) Ouray. Great views. Shady and cool. If you are not sure you can fit in here, better to scout the sites without your trailer first. - Prof Dan

This is a funky campground with a strange layout. The main section has the usual line of RV spots but across the (public) street are a line of E&W and non-serviced back in sites. We were in one of them. Had a tough time finding one that was level, but worked it out with blocks. We actually liked the site because it was very wide and had trees for privacy. The "riverside" sites weren't very impressive to me since the river is more like a canal running along the park with condos right on the other side. I certainly didn't think it was worth paying extra for them. The restroom and laundry room were clean and modern and showers worked well. The washers/dryers were a bit expensive but ok otherwise. There's also a folding table and a couple chairs. The best part of this place, as all others have mentioned, is that it's just a couple blocks from the center of town so no need to move your rig or unhook your tow/towed to go out for dinner etc. Nice. Wifi was mostly useless but Verizon worked well. I'd stay again. - Pdxjoanne

We stayed in 4J for two nights. best place we stayed but mainly because of the location. We were able to walk into town, which was rare for most campgrounds.
The sites are very close together, have to juggle to put the awning up and have it over your picnic table, trying not to be too close to the sewage outlet! However the facilities were good and clean, showers free. WiFi very patchy and sometimes nonexistent.
Saying all that we would come back to the site, as it gave us everything we wanted. - Singaporeally

The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's also nice that it's on the edge of town so everything is walking distance. (We are in our thirties to put it in perspective.) Parking in the small town can be a challenge. The town in nestled in a small valley surrounded by massive mountains! The views here are spectacular and every time you walk out of your RV your breath will be taken away.
The spots were nice, but a bit close for my comfort. A motor home pulled in beside us and their pop out prohibited us from placing the picnic table outside out door. We had to move it toward the front. The sites are very long however, so there is plenty of room in front/back. WiFi works pretty good in the middle of the night or very early morning. Most times I could not even log.
Facilities are nice. Laundry is about average, with about 5 of each machine (washer/dryer). One thing I could not understand is that the laundry facility is locked at 8 pm. This really made no sense to me considering the amount of people who come here to spend all day in the mountains hiking or offroading. These few downsides are minor however and I would certainly stay here again in the future. - Super58d

This is a great park if you want to be very close to Ouray. The best thing going for the park is its location, just a mile from the main part of town. It's a quick drive to get there, or you can walk along the riverwalk trail which runs right along the RV Park. The park is also right along the Uncompahgre River. The views from the park are wonderful, though the tall mountains to the east mean that you won't see the sun until two hours later than official sunrise! The free WiFi worked quite well, Verizon worked well, but AT&T data was very slow. The park is on the expensive side (we paid $54/night after tax), and is mostly just a gravel lot with hookups with very little in the way of landscaping. It's also fairly noisy since it's right on Highway 550. We might stay again, but would try to find something a little less expensive nearby first. - LifeRebooted

Overall very good, very crowded. But summer in Ouray is expected. Has large, wide, long spaces. Was gravel only, but easy access. - papa2

One of our favorite parks ever. Friendly and super helpful owners and staff, and the greatest location. We chose a premium site which is right by the Uncompahgre River, and you can hear the rushing waters this time of year the moment you open your door. Great wifi, clean facilities, and within walking distance to town. We walked along the river several times a day as we made our way to the cute little town of Ouray. No bugs, AMAZING scenery, full hookups, close to town (about a 12 minute walk). Sites are gravel and fairly level. I can't say enough good things about this place, and we look forward to returning! - MikulasGoneAgain!
