Overall Rating

A small campground. Best for tenters. Well graded dirt road, coming from Dolores. (on West Dolores Road (Forest Rd. 535) about 13 miles northeast of Dolores)Coming from Rico the road is narrow, rough and winding. Trailers not permitted. Trailhead to Navajo Lake just a mile away. There is a trail to a very sulpherous hot spring just four miles away. Good trout fishing, but no river access at campground. There are 15 sites, with 2 of them are reserved for people with horses. Beautiful aspens, firs and pines. An abundance of wildflowers. Some potable water (well is old and pump small, so the water is limited), 3 pit toilets, one labeled for women. A treat. . No dumpster, you have to take your trash out with you. I loved this campground. It was full only Fourth of July weekend. Otherwise usually 4-5 sites were full. Most sites with good separation. Two open ones that were good for solar use. No cell phone or wi-fi reception.
