Definitely not big rig friendly, too many branches, narrow concrete runners, low water pressure, 30 amp spotty. Many hidden costs added to nights stay. Roads are full of ruts. Would not recommend anything over 40' come in here. We camped at San Isabel National Forest - Silver Dollar CG in a Motorhome.Undo

First, let's get to the identification of campgrounds issue. Silver Dollar campground, along with Molly Brown, Baby Doe, Father Dyer, the Printer Boy Group Campsite, and Mayqueen are ALL part of San Isabel National Forest's campgrounds at the Turquoise Lake Recreation Area west of Leadville. They are all managed by Rocky Mountain Recreation Company, which is a concessionaire of the National Forest. With the exception of Mayqueen campground, which is at the west end of Turquoise Lake, all other campgrounds, including Silver Dollar, are located on the east side of the lake. There are two dump stations. One is at the entrance to Molly Brown, the other at the entrance to Printer Boy Group campground. There is an additional $10 fee to use the dump station. Fresh water tanks can be loaded there. Tank up before going to the CG of your choice. All of these campground's, including Silver Dollar, are dry camping. Each site is back in, and some are pull in. This means if you want reserve or choose the wrong site, you will need to back in to your site at a 120 degree angle, and negotiate trees! Sites are unpaved, dusty in dry weather, and a bit muddy in wet, but firm on ground (you will not get stuck). We had no problems with leveling, but some sites could. Each site is spacious, and room between sites is extensive. Silver Dollar is completely forested, no water front views here, and likewise no wind problems. Wildlife was abundant, especially Gray Jays. On weekends, this and the other Turquoise Lake campgrounds are reserved well in advance on Reserve America.com, so plan ahead. Morning temperatures are crisp, even in July. Expect temps in the 40s. Mosquitoes were somewhat of a problem at times, but nothing unbearable. We would camp here again.
