Wonderful campground! I have camped and backpacked at many places in Colorado, in the wilderness and at campsites. I can honestly say this is my favorite campsite in the region. Everything was close by (restrooms, trailheads, the river, water faucets, etc) the camp hosts are very nice and accommodating, if you've got any questions feel free to ask them. This is (to me) the most beautiful and awe-inspiring part of Colorado, and this campsite in right in the center of it all. Vallecito reservoir is just a 5 minute drive from the camp, and it offers fantastic fishing, stores, restaurants, etc. Weminuche Wilderness trail begins at the north side of the camp, I suggest a hike. I spent 2 weeks backpacking on that trail on a previous trip, amazing

Taken slightly upriver from the campsites, just magnificent!The river which runs right beside the campground. Good fishin'.Hiking the Weminuche Wilderness from the trailhead within the park.A view of Vallecito Reservoir from the peak.
