Thank you! My 7 year old told me she only tried to open the door and it broke. Cheap fix.

Mike. We do not go on the west side often. South fork and Creed are beautiful. Wolf creek pass is a must!! The pine Beatle has really hit that area hard.

Mike,

There are many more camp sites in Western Colorado, but many are spots in the scrub oak and sage bush. These are too dusty and hot for us. I tried to give you some of the ones we like to stay at. These are usually shaded sites with some sort of water near by.

The Ouray area is where we camp each year - mostly the fall (Sept to Oct), There are a bunch of nice camp sites down there, but we have not really looked at them. We like to spend most of our time traveling the remote host towns and mines along the off road trails. We use the KOA or 4 J RV camps more for a basecamp with full hook ups.

While the Ouray/ Silverton are in the news with the mine release, it's a very nice area to camp. If you love history of western living & mining it's a great location.

Mining in Colorado has turned the mountains are very much like Swiss cheese. Down in the Telluride, Ouray, & Silverton you will see more ghost towns with educational information presented at the sites.

Erik. Stayed in Durango a couple of years ago at Alpen Rose RV park. Nice place. Full hookups. On Highway 550 going to Silverton. Fishing sucked due to rafters on the Animus But that is what i am looking for. To old to dry/dirt camp anymore. Ouray looked nice still checking out the others.

Just looked at it on Map quest. Just a spit from Silverton. Going to do some research on that KOA.
Thanks again.
Mike
