It's hard to accurately rate this experience. First, our site. We paid $45 for one of the 4 premium sites. Our view was spectacular, but we didn't actually know where we were supposed to setup camp because there are no markers - and then whoever was there before us moved the fire ring so there was a large pile of ash & charred wood that we had to deal with. Then - fishermen take note. The fishing is awesome...but campsites 'own' any part of the lake close to their site. We found a lovely place to fish - but were chased out by the campground host because it belonged to a campsite - even though the site in question was at least 50' away, on top of a hill, and the last campers had left. We've camped & fished many places and have never run into a situation where a campground site controls the waterfront. This is not posted anywhere. If you want to camp & fish here, be darn sure of where you are allowed to be. - 08Passport

Beautiful setting, but no utility amenities, except for one fresh water drinking faucet located beside office which can be used to fill drinking containers, or your RV fresh water tank, if you have your own hose. This is dry camping at its finest, as long as your rig is no more than 23 feet in length, otherwise, you are limited to a man-made parking lot that was cut right out of the middle of a very large hill - unless you want to pay $45 per night for one of four "premium" RV sites upon another hill overlooking the lake (yet they did not appear to be worth the cost at all). Because the basic big rig parking area is cut out of the middle of a very large hill, and the camping parking area is within the cut out, you have no view except of the hill side in front of and behind you UNLESS you are on one of the ends. On their website, this parking area is referred to as located "within a unique geological formation". That misleading description sounds appealing, but the bottom line is that this park has great dry camping IF your rig is no longer than 23' in length. Otherwise, you will be basically stuck in an after-thought parking area with no view and not close to or even really part of the real campground. - God Bless America

This is a City of Silverton owned park. This park is almost at top of continental divide at 10,515 ft. It has some of the prettiest most breath taking views you will ever see. We stayed here in July, and all the mountains surrounding the lake were covered with snow. The sites were all very nice and clean. Since there are no hook-ups, we ran our generator and filled up with water at the check-in station. All of the sites have a great view of the lake. The site we stayed in backed right up to the water, we were about 15' from the water. The temperature is very cool here being up in the mountains, one day the high was 53 degrees and we were here in July. I think some would consider this a primitive camp site, however I have stayed at worse camp sites with hook ups. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table, the sites are all covered with gravel with zero dust. We all road bikes, fished, and hiked. I highly recommend that if you are in the area, try to at least camp here one night, might be the most beautiful campsite you will ever stay at. The mountains reflect off the water, the air is crisp and clean, and the nights are silent and peaceful. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay here again. One word of caution, the rules say generator use from 8am to 8pm. We ran our generator earlier and later than those times without a problem. HOWEVER and this is a big HOWEVER, we have a very quiet Yamaha. I spoke with the guy who lives on site and runs the place, and he said no problem with this as our generator was so quiet. He did say that he does have a problem with those who have those loud contractor type generators. So if you have a loud generator, 8am-8pm. The guy who runs everything was a really nice guy, but I would not recommend pushing your luck with him either. - TXDego

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

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 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

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

The most popular campground in the San Juan National Forest, and for good reason: the view is spectacular. Most of the sites are level or nearly so. All are gravel. Some sites are nicely shaded, others are in the sun.
Fills up quickly, even on weekdays. If you didn't make a reservation, you will need to get there in the morning to snag one of the first-come-first-served sites as someone else moves out. Cellular signal is too weak for handheld phones, but with a so-called "booster" antenna on an LTE router you can actually have Internet. - Old Mountain Man

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

Great location and very friendly staff. You can walk to the entire downtown area, including the hot spring mineral baths from this park. It sits right on the river and wildlife wanders thru on occasion. The pull thru sites are plenty long but they are very close on either side. Your neighbor's hookups are, literally, right beside your picnic table. But, with so much to do, you aren't home for long, its not a big deal. The tent sites were quite nice, roomy and set up for privacy. - Tessa & Toadee on the Road

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

Great location and amazing views from all around the park. Our site backed up to the river, but was a bit narrow when the neighbor showed up. There are wider riverfront sites which would be our preference for next time. Staff are extremely helpful and are genuinely interested in making sure you have a good time and your stay is fun. I was amazed that no matter the time you arrive, someone from the staff will come to greet you and show you to your site. Parking assistance is available should you need/want it. The onsite cafe is great and the city's hot springs pool complex is a short riverfront walk away. I only wish the park were a bit more than just gravel. There are a few trees on south side of the park. However, the rest is open and all gravel. Upside is that maneuvering is easy, even for the largest of rigs. We will definitely come back. - 45 ACP

Very nice park for our 3-day stay. No water available at sites during April but a full station is available which we utilized. Close to downtown Ouray and within walking distance of the Hot Springs - about 1/4 mile walk along the Uncomprahgre River. It was still the off-season so there were only a few campers. Onsite restaurant is open Friday thru Sunday. The views from the park are amazing!! Staff was friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again if we're back this way. - J Tucker

The views were amazing. Everything was clean. The people were very welcoming. The owner was happy to help me with some mechanical issues I was having with my RV. The cafe serves great food. We will definitely be back. - Steven Roloff
