“Luxurious full hookup sites along the Uncompaghre River”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed in the Pa Co Chu Puk Campground (the northernmost camping loop in Ridgway State Park) for a few nights at the end of a 10 day trip where we boondocked - and it was nice to end the trip with full hookups. We had a nice, private site along the river - so the sound of the rushing water lulled us to sleep at night. Our site was... more

“As good as it gets!”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2018

Overall Rating

This state park is top notch! The water is currently off in the lower campground due to possible freezing in the forecast. The top loops are $24 and the bottom loops are $28 because they include a sewer hookup. The bottom loops are in closer proximity to the river for fishing access. Two negatives: 7 per day entry fee for CO state... more

“Well-maintained, beautiful state park”

Reviewed Mar 12, 2018

We loved our stay at Ridgway SP! They're located just 45 min outside Telluride and 5 min from the town of Ridgway. It was fully operational, well-maintained, space between the sites and surrounded by beautiful mountain views. They only have one loop open in the winter and we were one of just a couple campers. Each site has two picnic t... more

We’ve stayed at the main campground, as well as the Paco Camground. Both are excellent. If you love flyfishing (as we do), the Paco is the way to go. Nestled alongside the Umcompahgre River, there’s 2 miles of C&R Gold Medal Trout water. The campsites are spacious, clean, and offer full hook ups. It’s not too far to Ridgway for supplie... more

We spent one night here on our way home to Florida from Alaska. This park is just a few miles up highway 550 north of Ridgeway, CO. While it is close to 550 there was very little highway noise. The ranger who checked us in was great. He asked me if I was a veteran and when I showed him my VA medical card he handed us a pass good for... more

We enjoyed our stay at Ridgway State Park. We camped in the Elk Ridge section D loop. Lots of easy pull-through sites. There was electric hookups at our site with shared water. Shared water being a place where you can fill your tank. Our site was on the right side of the one way road and our friends camped on the left. They had to pul... more

Plenty has been said about this lovely little slice of state park that left me so regretful for staying at an RV park in town when we had a craving for an electrical hookup the night before. We dug the lay of the land here (and have been having so much fun in the national forest) that we decided to stay here another night anyway. You c... more

We stayed at Pa-Co-Chu-Puk portion of the Ridgway State Park. While close to the highway, this section is in a low spot behind the damn. There is a nice restroom and laundry facility onsite. Spots are large, but surrounded by high grass (protected). The chipmunks and deer are fun to watch in the mornings and evenings. Plenty of room to... more

This was my second stay at this wonderful Colorado State Park, in the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk area. These are full hook-up, concrete sites. The sites are level and spacious. There is not a lot of privacy, due to the terrain, but there is plenty of space so you do not feel you are in your neighbors' business. The fees for Full Hook Ups are $30... more

We stayed up top (Elk Ridge) which is a large expansive campground with some pretty nice views. All the amenities you can think of, plus some nice trails. The swim beach was closed down as the water level was very low late in the season. They allow dogs off leash in the day-use area (1 mile south of the campground entrance). You can... more
