Nicely forested campground situated right on the Alpine Loop. Sites have decent spacing, although the site we were in had poor drainage. Had to dig some troughs to drain the pooling rainwater. Fires allowed, very pretty lakes with walking path. Excellent starting point for any 4x4 riding - just exit the park. - Seagrace

Castle Lakes Campground is a nice spot about 7 miles west of Lake City, Colorado. Two good size trout lakes are on the property. Be advised it costs $7.00/day to fish on the lakes in addition to the campground fee. The staff are friendly, camping sites are level, spacious, plenty of shade trees and all have power and water hookups. Only some sites have sewer hookups, which is why I rated this a "7" instead of a "10". If you end up with a site without a sewer hook-up, check with the front desk and they'll offer you a site with sewer hook-ups if one is available, or, let you pull into one that is temporarily unoccupied so you can dump your tanks. We dumped prior to leaving after 4 days of camping. The sites are mostly back-in sites but some very large TT and fifth wheels had no problems getting in and out. The scenery is tremendous! The lakes are surrounded by snow capped peaks. The campground elevation is over 9,000 feet so be prepared with warm clothes. Lake City is very small with only two small grocery stores. Be advised to bring food and beverages with you. There is Internet at the campground office and cell service is spotty at best. This campground is fairly remote and a wonderful getaway for hiking, fishing, 4-wheeling, jeep rentals, etc. It's not a place to come to if you want all the conveniences of TV or nearby shopping. We stayed at site number 48 which was large and had the best views (but no sewer hook-ups). - HangDiver

Just returned from Castle Lakes Camp Ground outside of Lake City CO. I've returned to this camp grounds year after year. Staff are very friendly, very helpful and you fell like you are very Welcome to their Camp Grounds. Bathrooms are always clean, Showers are always clean and Hot water every time I took a shower. They have jeep rentals, large lake with fairly nice size trout, full hook ups for RVs. A well stocked General store and just down the road, wild Moose, in two days I've seen 7 moose. Aspens were changing and snow along Alpine Loop. I will return there once again next year. I feel so relaxed and stress free while camping at Castle Lakes Camp Grounds. Thank you Castle Lake Staff. Keep up the good work. - Naturespaintbrush

We stayed here about 14 years ago with our daughters. Loved it then. We came back this year with our 10 year old grandson. We are in a 35' Bumper Pull. RV Park is on a bend in the river. Quiet because it is not in town. Some of the sites in the new section have beautiful views of the river. All the sites are nicely spread out. Gravel sites. Very woodsy feel. (We aren't fond of concrete, overly manicured places; or sites were the RV's are squeezed in like sardines) Seems like many sites are pre-booked long in advance, so get your reservation in early. Cash or check ONLY to pay your balance when you arrive. Bathrooms/showers in the new section are awesome. Each RV site has a fire pit and picnic table. A cousin from the Co. Springs area drove down for the weekend. She had the "Fishing Cabin":Cute decor, comfortable beds. Minimal though...just bunk beds, and a double bed in the cabin. Sink, grill and picnic table outside. But better than a tent :-) - bsusan

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

Rustic campground in a spectacular setting above Lake San Cristobal. Road in is narrow and a bit rough but we saw some pretty big 5th wheels camped in the upper campground. Really a beautiful area with access to miles of hiking trails and ATV roads that reach all the way to Silverton CO. Pit toilets, water taps, no showers and the dump station is locked so it can only be accessed when the camp host is available. - cfmelville

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

Had a problem with our electric connection. Owner came out and tried to help. Called a local RV tech who came, located the problem, fixed it and charged a very reasonable amt. overall the park is very neat and clean, as are restrooms/showers. Owners are very friendly. - PaleoTex

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

We're new motor home owners & the owners & their 2 sons respected that. a staff member lead us in & watched carefully as we parked in slot 11 near the office. It is a little tight since the levels are carved out the side of a hill, but we've been to parks even tighter. They do have various activities under the canopy. Restrooms very clean, & except from 12-1 they are open as well as the laundry (which we used late one evening). Everyone very helpful & informative about places in the area. - Dago Denver

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

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

One of our all time favorites. In the area of the Silver Jack reservoir. 20 miles of gravel/dirt road to get there, but campground is paved. Beautiful groves of Aspen. Water available at faucet, clean vault restrooms. Closest dump station is at Cimarron Visitor Center campground on highway 50, 20 miles away. Access to lots of back country hiking, Jeeping. Price reflects use of Senior Pass. - User2112

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. Pull through sites very close together. Free Wifi was nonexistent (even in the tv room near the office). The bathroom area, tv room and laundry room were spotless. Make sure when you are checking in to turn right when you arrive at the park office so you will be headed in the correct direction to park your RV. There were no signs at the check in so as a result we went the wrong way and had to disconnect the toad and turn around to get in the park. Also, driving into town the signs were almost hidden for the park location. The park appeared full the entire time we were there. It is handy to downtown. We did walk to the Hot Springs nearby which was fun. There are quite a few mobile homes in the park. There is no cable tv (only 3 PBS stations over the air), but they do have a lending library for DVD's and books in the TV room. - Gtown

Back in sites were wider than pull-throughs although still not very spacious. The internal roads were narrow, The park itself was not visually appealing. There were a lot of permanents there. The staff were very nice, the hook-ups all worked well and there were great mountain views. The location was terrific, easy walk to town. - SNL

There aren't a lot of choices in Ouray. This park is right in town so you can walk to everything. Convenient to hiking trails. It is pretty crowded, but all the parks are there. We would say here again in our fifth wheel, but not in the part to the right of the office as you turn in because it was too hard to back our 30' fifth wheel in and there was no water or sewer there plus it was the same price as the FHU sites. - ouachita princess

We arrived late and found our papers in the box on the front of the office with a map highlighting our site. Getting to our site in the dark was a little challenging but we had enough room to back in. We had reserved a premium riverside site, we were glad we did, our site wasnt big but we had more space than the other sites did. The town river trail runs behind the rv park, it was nice having access to it, our grands that were with us, used it everyday. Campfires arent allowed in this park which was disappointing. The campsites are gravel with a picnic table only. Each utility post has a light on it (which weren't working the night we pulled in) we had to cover our windows at night to keep the bright light out. We didn't use any of the facilities during our stay. - Autumnjoyz

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
