Why you’ll love Red Mountain RV Park

Nestled in the San Juan Mountains, the park has incredible mountain views. The RV park is right next to the Durango Narrow Gauge train tracks with a view of Kendall Mountain. No trails run at night, but during the day, you get to see the trains driven by a coal-fired engine carrying passengers several times a day. Great visual appeal and friendly hosts. There is plenty to do in the area.

Reviews of Red Mountain RV Park

We stay in this park every Fourth of July and the Lockey’s go out of their way to make us feel like family.” – Outback USA, RV Park Reviews
The San Juan Mountains are incredibly beautiful and full of history. The off-road and jeep roads are challenging yet beautiful. Silverton itself is one of the last small, Colorado mountain towns…”- RV Park Reviews

Reviews of Silverton Lakes RV Resort

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, RV Park Reviews

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.”– 2 TEXOMA, RV Park Reviews.

Reviews of Matterhorn Campground

“The most popular campground in the San Juan National Forest, and for good reason: the view is spectacular.”- Old Mountain Man, RV Park Reviews

This is a nice little campground nestled between the higher reaches around Telluride, Colorado. This campground is just off the highway, however the thick trees and the nearby creek help to obscure the noise from the road. The camp sites are fairly close together, but with the thick trees you still have a feeling of privacy. This small campground comes with many of the amenities such as fresh tap water, full RV hookup and some restrooms and showers.” – Camp Out Colorado

“Try the Ouray Perimeter Trail if you are in to hiking – or at least go to Box Canyon Falls (which is included in the whole perimeter trail hike). Also recommend the 15 minute drive to Ridgway to eat on the rooftop Sky Bar at the Chipeta Lodge and Spa. Live music on Fridays. Great views, especially as the sun is setting.” – RV Park Reviews

“Lots of things to see and do in Ouray. Hiking, biking 4-wheeling, Hot Springs, Box Canyon, and easy access to trails that take you over the mountains to Telluride. Book early and get a site right on the river.”– RV Park Reviews

We liked that it is close to town, and it was an easy walk. The convenient walk to the reconstructed city hot springs pool was nice too. “– Scot671, RV Park Reviews

The campground elevation is over 9,000 feet so be prepared with warm clothes. Lake City is very small with only two small grocery stores. Be advised to bring food and beverages with you.” -HangDiver, RV Park Reviews

“A well stocked General store and just down the road. . . in two days I’ve seen 7 moose. Aspens were changing and snow along Alpine Loop. I will return there once again next year. I feel so relaxed and stress free while camping at Castle Lakes Camp Grounds.” – Naturespaintbrush, RV Park Reviews

“I’ll state right up front, this is one of our very favorite campgrounds. It’s a National Forest CG it has about 35 sites of which approx 12 have electricity. The sites are situated in the woods above a beautiful lake and surrounded by huge mountains.” – Creativepart, RV Park Reviews

“If you are looking for a cushy park with lots of amenities, this is not the place for you. We didn’t have reservations, but the park holds a few sites for first come first serve. We found a spot that our RV would fit in although there were no utilities. You can run a generator between 8am and 10pm. The weather is nice and cool and the park is so quiet. We slept with the windows open and the weather was perfect for it. Would definitely stay here again. If you want a spot on the lake, with power, be sure to go to the website and reserve it well in advance because they stay pretty booked up in the summer.” – Joy C, RV Park Reviews

“As first timers there, we really enjoyed this facility. The owners really made us feel at home. The altitude was a bit to get used to, but all else was great!!! We would definitely go back next year!”– TXRVKing2013, RV Park Reviews

” A wonderful park, we really wanted to stay longer. It is a small park and backing into the sites is not for the newbie or faint of heart but once parked you are glad you came. It is another of those parks with a great setting and really, really nice owners who make sure everything runs smoothly. The laundry and the showers were so clean we happily used them instead of our own and I noticed others did as well. There is a nice pavilion with a few gas grills available for use. “ – PBuds, RV Park Reviews
