This public campground is part of Curecanti National Recreation Area: Blue Mesa. It is 20 miles east of Montrose. The sites for our 40' motorhome and Jeep were very narrow and short. We fit on #5 but it was tight. There aren't any pull-throughs but there are a few pull-along-side-of-the-road sites. The sites are paved and easy access just off Hwy 50. There is a dump station with water fill. The restroom had flush toilets but no showers. There are some trees. It was a scenic area and there's a very nice short hiking trail along the water at the nearby dam area but you have to drive to it. It was a good overnighter but with our long motorhome we'd probably stay at Elk campground next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a rustic, small campground that is administered from the National Park Service and belongs to the Curecanti National Recreation Area. The campground is located in a narrow valley, surrounded from steep mountains. There is only one paved loop road. Some sites are paved, some are gravel. Only a few sites are barely long enough for a 40 ft motorhome. Our site was perfectly level. You can only dry camp here, but there is a dump station a few hundred yards away that belongs to the campground. There is no shower. During the day it is noisy from Hwy. 50, but during the night it was quiet. The distance to the neighbors is bigger than on most commercial campgrounds. The price drops to $6 per night if you have a golden access pass or if you are over 62 (Interactive Senior/Access Pass). Unfortunately the campground looks run down, otherwise I would have rated it one point higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
