I drove by this campsite and saw that I had a couple bars of LTE on Verizon at the highway. I imagine you’d be able to pick it up at the camp which is right next to it. Looks like an awesome spot I will definitely return to camp here some time and to confirm the cell signal.

“Nice free campgound by the river, convenient for Ouray and Telluride”

Overall Rating

This is well-maintained, free US Forest Service campground on the bank of the San Miguel River. With the exception of one campsite, it is all gravel. There are 2 pull-throughs, a small back-in site and a covered picnic table at the entrance. There is a very long pull-through, a large dirt back-in site, picnic table, clean vault toilets, and raft/kayak ramp in the center. At the far end is a large gravel area that would make at least 4 sites with good space between.Overall, the sites are very well separated. There is no water or dumpster.

I camped at the far end. With the exception of one night when a 5th wheeler with a noisy contractor's generator decided to park right in front of me, there were never more than 3 other campers here. There was no cell signal. There was a 3G signal just down the road in Placerville.

This section of Hwy 145, west of the Placerville intersection with Hwy 62 from Ridgway, is the Unaweep Tabeguache National Scenic Byway. It goes through some very remote country. Road noise at the campground was not a problem.

This is a convenient location for Ouray, the Million Dollar Highway and Telluride.
