We loved this RV park. It is one of three in Ridgway State Park, but the only one with full hookups. We had site 278, which I chose after viewing the park on Google Earth. I think it is the best site in the park. It is right on the Uncompahgre River and is not far from the restrooms and laundry. My ten year old nephew caught several 20” brown trout right in front of the site. It is a steep hike down to the river 25 feet below. Or you can walk a couple hundred yards to easy access. The showers are free, the bathrooms spotless and the laundry is cheap and clean. The park was quiet and dark at night. We will return.

This was our favorite campground in Colorado! We stayed here for 3 nights at site #276HA in Pa Co Chu Puk campground. From our campsite we had full view of the Uncompahgre River plus the fishing ponds. It was wonderful hearing the river go past. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes around the campground in the evenings while my husband and I walked around. Lots of little walking paths around the fishing ponds, etc. for a relaxing evening stroll. Full hookups, beautiful showers, bathrooms, laundry facilities. We used this campground as home base while exploring Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP and Mesa Verde NP (a day trip). Would've loved to stay at this campground longer! Make your reservations early!!!

This campground is convenient but was expensive as state parks go, cost was comparable to the commercial sites in Ouray (which have better facilities and are close to the action) ALSO - when we visited in July, there was no shade on this site, so our RV became pretty warm late afternoon! That said, the trails around the fishing ponds and along the river were lovely, and the facilities were good. Would I stay at this location again, probably not - 4J in Ouray worked better for us.

We just got back from 10 days in Colorado, and the campground that I was looking forward to the most turned out to be the biggest disappointment. I had made a reservation in January for site #267. Nothing on the park's website, nor Google Maps of Google Earth demonstrated that river access is only achievable based on being able to repel off the side of a cliff and thru a jungle of trees. The only way we knew that there we were beside the river was that we could only hear it....from inside the camper safely away from the attacking swarm of mosquitoes. From the minute we arrived, I felt like a pincushion to the vile bloodsuckers that they are. When talking to the other campers as well as the Park Hosts & Park Rangers, we were left with the impression that this is normal during the summer and the only way to deal with it is either stay inside of continually cover yourself with Deet or some other repellant of choice. I was skeptical about the other campers overstating the mosquito problem, but when officials within the park told me this is how it is....I know we had to move. We were originally set to be there six days, but the people at Ridgway SP were great and got us moved to the Dakota Terrace campground the next morning.

Stayed here for 2 nights towards the end of July. Area is very pretty. Campground was very clean and the spaces very nice. Would definitely stay here again. We stayed with our 28 ft. motorhome. Easy in and out.
