Snowslide campground is a playground of camping fun. There are shady sites along the La Plata River perfect for explorers and lots of space for your car or RV. Sites are semi-primitive (there are toilets), and it’s a quick trip to nearby campgrounds to snag water. Even during the summer, the temperature stays mild in this spot, so bring your sweater and cozy up riverside or take a quick jaunt to nearby trails and lakes. Snowslide is an ultimate chill zone, so bring nothing but good vibes and enjoy.

Cows often run through this camp, so be ready for morning Moos. Right side of road campsites are all near the river - can't go wrong with any of these. I say people 4 wheeling near river. Love this campsite, especially #4.

Note that temperatures were regularly 10-15 degrees lower than Durango. Lots of free firewood to collect.
