We spent 5 nights at Angel Creek in August, 2020 (during the Covid craziness); we were in site 2. There are 8 first come, first served sites, some of which are tent only. The sites are well spaced and large, but not particularly well planned for RVs. Each has a picnic table and fire ring. There are 2 porta-potties and no water or trash service.

This campground is not advised if you have a big rig: we managed with our 23 foot (all in) TT, but it was a squeeze. The road is dirt, and not well maintained, somewhat steep coming in and a bit rutted. It's dusty when dry, and could get muddy when it rains. Stopping at the entrance and walking in to evaluate is wise before you commit your rig, unless your are in a class B.

Some sites have their own driveway, so you can get away from the traffic in these sites. Since the campground is off of the heavily traveled Camp Bird Road, there are lots of quads and other vehicles driving through, particularly on the weekend, so deeper into the campground is better. There is some road noise during the day, but almost none at night.

On the up side, the views are amazing even with the smoke and dust during our stay. Sitting by Angel Creek was lovely, but did require walking to the entrance area. And, at $10/night ($5 with an Interagency Pass), it's a great deal for a spot this close to Ouray.

Cell connectivity is spotty - we could make voice calls from our phones, but the only reliable connection was through our router with roof antenna, and it was fairly slow (2.9 Mbps down, 300 Kbps up on AT&T).

We will be back!

Fine views. River access down the road. Fire rings and picnic tables. Closets drinking water is in Ouray. The road is beat in a high clearance vehicle, but we did well in our minivan. Kids loved it.

Verizon 3G 2 bars. Usable.
