“Tent camping - GREAT location and amenities. ”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Our original plans fell through, Priest Gulch had just opened and had RV and tent sites available. All sites are gravel with a grass "yard". Pets welcome. Some pull through, many back in spaces, especially the sites that are on the Dolores river. Beautiful!! The camp hosts stay with you until you are in or backed into your site. Free firewood for use in the campground. Site 8 & 9 are located close to the bathroom/showers and full equipped, heated gazebo. Full hookups at all sites on the main side. Across the river same, with nothing at the remote tent camping sites. Electrical was being upgraded across the river while we were there. Excellent wifi. This is bear country, no food/stoves can be left out.

This is a great location to hike, visit Mesa Verde NP, Hovenweep NM, Telluride etc.

Highly recommended!

“Loved This Place”

We originally had reservations at the McPhee Recreation Area for our visit to the Mesa Verde area, but upon arrival found it to be less than satisfactory. Fortunately we had good cell service and I was able to get into Priest Gulch about 20 miles away. What a difference!

The camp hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It's the only place I have ever been where the host stuck around to help you back into your site. And while the sites were fairly close together (about 15 to 20 feet apart), the fact that we were literally backed up to the Delores River made it all worthwhile. It was so nice to sleep to the soothing sound of the river that it really didn't matter.

The owners will provide free firewood if you ask. They just don't want you to take it out of the park.

WiFi was fairly good, with few dropouts. There is a reasonably priced laundromat on the premises.
