Let me qualify my comments by stating that there are only 3 RV parks in Silverton, Co. They are all the same. It's a captive audience and they don't have to compete much because they are all busy. The ladies in the office were friendly and helpful. The men could use a touch of "friendly"!!!! Silverton caters to ATVs and 4 wheelers so the park is full of toy-haulers and, of course, noisy toys. - 1texan

Owners were pleasant and the bathrooms/showers were clean and functional. The sites are very close together but long enough to accommodate and size rig. Between the first row and the RR tracks is a large grassy field where you can park other vehicles and run your pups. The park is within walking distance of downtown Silverton where shops and restaurants abound. - cfmelville

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 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

We were looking for a CG close to Telluride that had electric sites (morning temps below freezing for several days in a row). We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice CG about an hour from Telluride. Ridgway SP has 3 camping areas: Pa-Co-Chu-Puk CG with FHU at the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk recreation site and Elk Ridge CG and Dakota Terraces CG, both electric only, at the Dutch Charlie recreation site 3.5 miles south. The sites in Dakota Terrace are arrayed in a meadow in full sun with patio covers over picnic tables for shade. They are closer to the highway with some road noise. The sites in Elk Ridge are in a pinion pine/juniper forest with shade and privacy and no road noise. We stayed in Elk Ridge. The sites are spacious with a mix of pull-ins and back-ins. All are asphalt, some are level while others require leveling. Some have more shade than others and some have views of the reservoir or mountains. There are ample water spigots throughout. There's a dump station with rinse and potable water near the entrance. Note the water at the dump station may be shut off in the event of below freezing weather with water available to fill tanks at the spigots. There's no wifi. There's good ATT and Verizon cell service. Note the A loop of the Dakota Terrace is open year round. The remainder of the loops in Dakota and Elk Ridge begin to close based on weather. There's an extra $7 day fee for those without a CO SP pass. - dsvt

Nice park below the dam with full hook ups and lots of space, however very little if any shade! The lake was really low and they could use lots of rain and snow over the winter! Nice park to stay in if visiting Ouray, Silverton and the Durango area. The Million Dollar Highway is a very interesting drive, just take your time to enjoy all the views! Also went up over Lizard Head pass to visit Telluride, Co. Just my opinion of course, but I think Lizard Head is the most beautiful pass in Colorado!! - lgvig

We stayed for 4 nights in Pa Co Chu Puk G loop. We had a pull through site facing the west with a beautiful view of the mountains and we were away from the main highway. There was a small group of trees planted to the west of our camper that provided shade from the western sun. The concrete pad was level and the full hook ups worked well. The sites are incredibly spacious. The grounds of the campground included access to the river and fishing ponds. The location was perfect for exploring Ouray and Telluride. The price quoted does not include the $16 online processing fee. We had purchased a Colorado Park Pass for $70 (annual fee), so the daily park usage fee of $7 was waived. I can easily say this is one of the most beautiful state parks in Colorado. - The Regans

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
