Superb rv park; only downside was the wifi - which is not unusual. Made reservations there for a month next Fall - that should prove how we liked it! We camped at Ouray KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Ouray - what a gorgeous place! This KOA is 4 miles north of Ouray and 6 miles south of Ridgway, so it's located perfectly. Staff was very friendly and it's a nice park. Our site wasn't very clean (lots of leftover food around the fire pit), which we needed to clean due to bears in the area. Our site was level and fairly easy to get into. Their BBQ dinner that they serve on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays is outstanding! Live entertainment was quite good too. That was a nice surprise! We camped at Ouray KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't be fooled by Google Maps - it says Telluride is about 11 miles away, but that's as the crow flies. it's a one-hour drive to get there, but absolutely worth it.

This is our favorite campground in the area. We've stayed there on several occasions over the past few years and have always had a very good experience. The sites are large, clean and all have great views of the surrounding mountains. When it is open, the restaurant is also a nice addition. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Brickhouse restaurant in town is great. If you have a high clearance vehicle take the Owl Creek Pass road for a super scenic drive. And, by all means have a beer at the Ourayle Brewery, also known as Mr Grumpy Pants' brewery on main street. Great beer. Grumpy guy. Eclectic place. We always stop by. Have an open mind.

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. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Tent Trailer.

It's not in Ouray, so you'll need to travel a few miles to gas and restaurants. Ridgway is probably more convenient.

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! We camped at Ouray KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive Red Mountain Pass in the early morning and later in afternoon for the good lighting on the beauty of this one of the most beautiful drives in America. But be darn careful as there are places of 10-12" shoulder, no guard rail and straight down several hundred feet - curvy as well. I DO NOT recommend driving it with an RV.

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. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Motorhome.

Very large park a few miles north of Ouray. Lots of trees and roomy sites. Dust can be an issue depending on your spot and roof type sat antennas can be blocked by trees. Fairly quiet at night with very little highway noise which is really nice. It's an older park though and the facilities are showing their age even with attentive maintenance. If you are with a group, try to get spots in the same area otherwise there can be long walks. We usually avoid KOA parks but this one is a viable option for Ouray. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Motorhome.

The main problem is wifi, virtually unusable. Even when connected, the speed is of 3rd world quality. The owners know about the problem, but don't care. The campground is fairly dusty, even slightest breeze will pick up dirt and carry around campsites. Otherwise, decent location, nice surrounding and pretty quiet. I would not recommend anyone to stay here. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The sites are extremely close. There are several all summer campers which take up most of the best sites. It's gravel & very few campers adhere to the 5 mph speed limit so it's extremely dusty. Although they have 2 really nice staff, some so so staff, they also have some very rude staff which I found unacceptable. I doubt I will ever stay here again. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Motorhome.

The good is the people were friendly, the grounds were clean and the restrooms were very clean. Otherwise this campground was not spectacular. The sites were all gravel except for some patches of grass. All sites had a table and firepit. There are lots of trees, and scenery is beautiful. Internet was strong but so slow. There was no pool - unusual for a KOA. There was no cable TV - sad, but not unusual. They have breakfast everyday - worth avoiding. They have BBQ on weekends - just so-so. Pizza on Mon/Tue was decent. They have music on weekends - bring your cowboy hat and boots and expect to dance and have fun. I rate this place average. Many KOAs are better, but there is little competition any better in the area; and there are several, Their rates are pricey by about $15. I would try another campground if I visit again.

CG 5 miles north of Ouray actually. Typical KOA with lots of amenities - meals for purchase, recreation areas, etc. Large bathrooms with plenty of showers and stalls. Very nice staff. Lots of trees. Wonderful to hear the creek/river running near our site, although our site was a little tight. We would stay again. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the best rv park in Ouray. The others are just parking spaces right on the highway. This park is beautifully situated among trees with mountain views, and is off the highway. It is fairly quiet, especially at night. Sites are a bit close, but we had a patch of grass next to our site. No pool and no cable tv. WiFi is hit or miss, but Verizon signal was consistent. In my opinion, it's just overpriced. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

What a beautiful location. The campground is clean and well maintained. The Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Lots to do between Black Canyon NP, Ouray, Ridgeway and Telluride. Be sure to take a soak at Ouray Hot Springs or Orvis Hot Springs, both nearby. Gravel Site with grass around next to creek has full service 50amp, picnic table and fire ring. Verizon 4G LTE is good and park wifi is strong. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Well-located, well-run, not cheap. Sites are very close together -- a glorified gravel parking lot with some trees. Wifi gets slow in the evening. Laundry room is well equipped but can be busy. If you need hookups, this is probably the nicest and quietest park in the area -- most of the others are right on the highway. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Travel Trailer.
