“A Beautiful spot just outside Durango”
Reviewed Mar 06, 2018
Thanks to the very helpful Rangers at the Pagosa Springs and Durango Ranger stations we were directed to the Bay City Gulch Campground.
Access to this spot was easy with about one mile of driving on a well maintained dirt road. We arrived to a beautiful sunset over the mountains. It is a small campground and we felt lucky to have it to ourselves. However, if it had been full we could have continued on the dirt road a little further up to several other campgrounds so there was no pressure to find a spot.
Bay City is open all year long, but even in a dry winter with unseasonably warm temperatures, there were traces of snow. In a snowy winter there would definitely be snow here.
The campground has views of snow capped mountains and is placed alongside a seasonal river. The river was mostly dry in February.
The campsites have fire pits, but no tables or bathrooms. The campsites are in two small clusters, so you are close to one or two other campsites. There are only 5 sites total though.
We were able to find a flat spot for the van and it appeared that was true for most of the sites. I would not recommend this campground for any big rigs as access in the campground is fairly tight.
