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

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

I second what other recent reviewers said: the location of this park is great. You can walk nearly everywhere in Ouray. The spaces are close together, but everyone was very friendly, and we didn't spend much time in our RV anyway. We were there for only one night. There were a lot of "rules" about where to walk, especially with a dog. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Ouray. - Eldereaglewatchers

The weather in this area is mild compared to the temperatures in town, and nights around the campfire were nice and warm for September. The sites are large and comfortable, though the fire rings were small and the picnic tables fairly worn out. The best part is how clean the campground is, with private bathrooms and showers. Everything was spotless all the time. There was good lighting at night, but not too much. All spots were nice, especially the tent sites up against the field. I would definitely stay here again. - OffroadGirl

This was our third time here and we hope to be back next year in the Fall for the breathtaking beauty of this area. This is a very large RV park and takes a huge amount of work to keep up; but I think they do a good job. It is dusty from the gravel. WiFi was slow to the point there were a couple of times I went and used my personal hotspot (as a pro photographer there are quite a few images sent out!). Staff varies but I always am more forgiving than most - particularly this late in the season! - AZSwede

This is a better than average KOA. Our space was pretty large full hook ups with grass, picnic table and fire pit. Staff was helpful with all the local attractions. WiFi was pretty sad, even in the early morning hours, it just needs a major upgrade. The Bar-B-Q dinner was a very good deal, go early it is very busy place. There is no off-air TV channels, bring your Satellite dish. - JeffnAnita

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

This is a great setting for a park. The sites are spacious. They are electric only sites and although there is a water hydrant, it isn't very easily accessible. We had some water on board so did not use it. Also, if you want a dump station you have to drive about 6 miles west to another park entrance and up a dirt road about a mile. The park is fairly well kept. It is sad to see all the beetle kill that has taken so many of the trees, but there isn't much that can be done about that. Also didn't care for the fire pits which were so deep, you really couldn't feel the heat from the fire. I'm sure this is to protect from wildfires, but just not very usable. - jacknpeg

Due to beetle kill, the campground has few trees but lots of nice grasses. Nice trails available. Pit toilets, no showers. Nice lake with good fishing but lots of mosquitoes especially in the evening. Found a nice geocache. To see moose, get up early and take the Gould trail that leads to a meadow. No dump station at this campground; one is located at the North Michigan entrance. Be sure to visit the Moose Center...you can hike to it from the campground. - katinfoco

This used to be a favorite but now the trees are all gone and the service is not what it used to be. Evidently, since the Dept. of Wildlife took over the Colo. St. Parks, sevice and upkeep have gone downhill. The only amenity is electricity and firepits. One outhouse and one water faucet is all there is. We found out from a camper that the fish had all died of winterkill and the DOW had not re-stocked it yet. We won't return! - number one

I stayed here the first week of October 2017. In addition to the nightly fee, Colorado requires a $7 a day entrance fee...........or one can purchase a yearly fee for $70. I opted for the latter because I thought I was going to stay longer than 10 days. Rain chased me out in 6 days, but the pass is good for any Colorado State Park for a year from purchase date. I plan on staying in the park in the future. - Chris C

Ridgway State Park is 20 miles south of Montrose in western Colorado on Ridgway Reservior. We spent 4 nights in the Dutch Charlie campground site 186 (30A electric site) in the Elk Ridge section. Spacious campsite with beautiful views. Pa-Co-Chu-Puk campground north of the lake on the Uncompahgre River has full hookup sites. Ridgway is 4 miles south with a few restaurants and basic groceries. Montrose is 20 miles north with Walmart and City Market grocery stores. We took the scenic drive over Owl Creek Pass (good dirt roads) and also visited Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Beautiful campground and area. We would stay at Ridgway State Park again. - drfife

We spent two weeks at this park and enjoyed it more the longer we were there. Very large park with multiple campgrounds and multiple loops within those campgrounds. We stayed in the Pa-Co-Chu-Pu campground, so this review is specific to that one.
Mostly pull through sites and many had vegetation between the road and pad for an extra element of privacy. The pads are not overly long or wide for big rigs. We had to wedge our 43' RV in with some back and forth adjustments. We still couldn't fit all tires on the concrete, but not to worry since the rest of the parking area is blacktop. Sites vary a lot and ours was long and narrow, but with a really nice concrete sidewalk between the door area and the outdoor space situated at the rear of the RV.
You do get pretty consistent road noise from the highway, but depending on site, it's not horrible. When picking a site, the ones closest to the river are quietest and most of those offer more afternoon shade which is nice. This was our first time to this area and we loved it.
A couple of dings. There were dog bag stations, but no waste bags anywhere. A few plastic shopping bags crammed in them though. Sites are 30 amp only which wasn't enough to run more than one AC. It did cool off nicely at night though. Good AT&T signal, ok Verizon signal. We had clear sky for satellite. We will stay here again. - Jerry and Betsy

We had the same problem as the other couple that stayed July 2015. Park was packed and very difficult to maneuver RV and truck in. Luckily, on the morning we were leaving, the nice gentlemen across from us moved their trucks so we could pull out and leave. We have already reserved a more accessible camp spot for next year where we will not have this problem.
Staff was VERY nice. Location was great. Just outside of the main street. Made for a nice walk in the mornings. The roads to and from town were OHV friendly, so we could drive our UTV to the car wash and to the grocery store. They rent fire pits to you for very inexpensive, which was nice. They have 3 or 4 cabins that people without RV's can stay in.
We will be back next year but super happy we already chose and reserved our space. - 2TEXOMA

After checking in, we had to ask around to have both an ATV and car moved because it would not have been possible to maneuver in to our site. The whole park is a muddy mess when it rains, but then again so is most of Silverton. What seemed to be the owners and their friends were being rather loud outside the main building near our site until about 11 PM. Short-term sites are very close together with slideouts practically touching. Our site was sloped up at the truck end which made detaching and attaching our weight distribution bars almost impossible due to the angle. Wi-Fi crashed and disappeared during the one time I used it. I probably wouldn't stay here again. On the bright side, the staff was friendly and helpful. - Brad & Angela

The good: The park is a short walk into town and conveniently located. Seems to be more popular with the ATVers and off-road motorcycle crowd, as you can ride right out of the park and up to the trails. Our site was fairly level, the 50 amp power worked well and water pressure was great. There was a small grass "pet area" directly across from us that was also very convenient. The laundry room was clean although we didn't need to use it for anything more than getting a Wi-Fi signal. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Bad: The entire park is part gravel, patches of grass here and there and mud. When it rains it's a bit of a mess so you had better have a patio rug to put outside your door. Wi-Fi signal was unusable even though we were parked within about 60' of the office. Had to go sit in the laundry room to be able to do anything. Some sites have the power and sewer on the wrong side requiring you to either park opposite direction of your neighbor or run all your hookups under your rig. This is a no frills park and it worked for our needs but I do wish they would bring in a lot more gravel to help with the mud situation. I would likely try and get into the park on the other end of town or dry camp at one of the wonderful locations that are so available in the area on our next visit to Silverton. - NwJeeper

This park is now owned by Silverton Lakes Campground so you have to register there. I called ahead to confirm my site so I could go to A & B, unhitch the toad, and drive it to Silverton Lakes Campground to register. There is no one manning the office at A & B but we didn't need help. The nine sites facing southeast (toward Kendall Mountain) are far superior to the eight facing southwest. In addition to the views, the campground was adequate except for the WiFi, which cannot be counted on (Verizon signal was good). Cement Creek (the site of the infamous EPA spill) flows along the edge of the campground, but didn't look any different than when we stayed there a year ago. After checking out all the RV parks in Silverton, this one was the least crowded, quietest, and very close to the restaurants. - Dr. John

This park is within 2 blocks of the main street of Silverton. Easy walk to any of the stores and restaurants and the D&S depot. At 9000+ elevation, it gets cold at night in September but the days warmed up nicely. Like everything else in Silverton, this park is a little overpriced but is quiet except when the trains arrive and depart. We will stay here again. - Delbert

Top reasons to stay at A&B: 1) location. Located in the center of town. Sure, Silverton is small, but just 1 - 2 blocks away are restaurants, Montagna's Distillery and shops. 2) friendly folks. I have stayed here before and always feel good with these folks. My stay was somewhat open-ended and I had only booked 3 days with them but ended up staying 8 days (and my rate was adjusted to the weekly rate) but no problems! The park is not fancy but the views are great! - Nrf

We came for the Silverton 4th of July, and to rent a Jeep for a slice of the Alpine Loop drive. Both were great, with the best Fireworks Show we'd ever experienced. The owners of the park are two real nice people - hate to use this cliche, but they're 'Good People!'. They make all guests feel welcomed, and go out of their way to be accommodating. They put on a 4th's BBQ for family, friends and park guests. Reading many of the other reviews, I perceived that many guests 'Get it!, while a few 'Missed it!' - as far as what this park and motel is all about. Depending upon what time of the season a guest came, sure could make a difference on their opinion of the park. Heck, just 5-6 weeks before we checked in, they had over a foot of snow covering the campground. Snow and slush goes away, and then you have the maintenance prep rush, gravel for some of the parks roads and sites too. Grass and landscaping need to recover, and that takes time. This is ~9300' country, and things are different at this elevation. We were in their front part of the park, below the motel rooms, we had Site 1 with water and 20/30/50A service for our stay. Pull thru, plenty of length for our 40' RV and Toad, and good spacing between the neighboring sites. All mechanicals worked as expected. Another nice thing that is provided is the ability to rent well cared for Jeeps. They're new each season, and they are ordered right, to provide an added bit of safety and 'not getting stuck'. Many other guests we met 'Get it!', one group has come for over a decade. This park provides you a beautiful valley/mountain/steam train setting... as a haven and home base while exploring the region. Good Verison, AT&T too (But out due to teenagers shooting the tower while we were here!) Rate was weekly. Great owner's, great place. - Gsmitty

The owners of Red Mountain RV are the best! There are many choices for an RV park in this beautiful area and Red Mountain is our home in Silverton. We stay in this park every Fourth of July and the Lockey's go out of their way to make us feel like family. - OutbackUSA

This is a pretty average campground, but probably one of the best in the Silverton area. The campsites, reasonably level on a gravel bed, are fairly narrow and arranged in a double row, back to back. The utilities all work with no problem. The campground is fairly close to the railroad track, --- only this case it is a bonus --- as one can get a good view of the narrow gauge railroad trains driven by a coal-fired engine carrying sight-seeing passengers to and from Silverton two or three times a day. There are no trains at night! I am a little chafed at the high daily rate, as we were part of a large 4-wheeling rally. When we asked for Good Sam discount, we were told no discounts were given to rally participants --- not what we usually encounter when attending rallies. Still we would stay here again as the RV park is convenient to Silverton, and in a pleasant setting; but we would probably be a little more aggressive in trying to get a reasonable daily rate. - hoppytoad

Hosts are cranky! Sites are very tight, gravel with some grass. The only redeeming value for this parking lot of a campground is that it is in Silverton, with easy quad access to local off-road areas. - Seagrace

We were two spaces west of office. Owners next door. It was just a week before they close for the season so park was almost totally empty. They are very nice, friendly and helpful. My wife called from Ouray as both it was raining and the road was closed during the day, opening at 5 PM. We wanted to know if they thought travel over the 550 was OK and was there snow at the top. Owner said road construction tight, but passable with our 40 footer towing. We would arrive after close and they were going to be out for the evening. Owner gave wife the Wi-Fi code, which space to park. We thought that was above what other parks have done.
He did come over and shut off our water at 5 AM, again at 10 AM, which the second time I saw him, opened the window to talk. He gave me a bit of a reprimand for a dripping hose connection. Says water is expensive in Silverton, one cent per gallon (maybe it is). I cost them about $3 for the 12 hours of drip. I apologized and the rest of our stay was great. We did arrive late and in a pretty good rain storm.
Wow what views there. The Durango/Silverton steam train is right behind the park so you see and here it every day. Park is walking distance to train station, and downtown Silverton. They have no fire rings but it's OK if you have your own.
Lots and lots of grass, a bit frosty in the morning which we were told is standard all summer. We will stay there again, but for more than the three nights as this time. - Bobcat1

We had grass on 3 sides of us which was great for the dogs. Wifi was excellent and possibly the best I have ever had. I was unable to get the cable TV to work but that was not an issue because I prefer to use our satellite. This was our first trip to Silverton and hope to come back again. If we do we will definitely stay at Silver Summit. Parking site was on level gravel, electric was good and water was fine. This is not a resort nor does it pretend to be. Able to walk to anything in town. Excellent value with Passport America. - cubadoug
