“Small Campground in the Clouds”
Reviewed Jan 04, 2017
This is a small Forest Service CG above 9,000' on Sunshine Mesa, close to Telluride. The sites were the very small, but they were spread out and private. This was not the cleanest CG I have stayed at and the pit toilets had a sort of vacuum thing going on. I'll leave it at that.
The CG is in a nice location and there are views towards Mt. Wilson from a little trail on the edge of the CG.
I would not recommend that larger RVs attempt this CG. the sites are small and there is not a ton of room for turning around. It is first come, first serve, and it fills up early. You are taking a risk on a weekend, but if it full, you can find boondocking sites down near Trout Lake and Lizardhead Pass.
The CG was exceptionally quiet. There is no cell phone service at this CG. Even in the July heat, this CG was very cold over night and I ran the heat.
