The tiny town of Telluride is so camper friendly, it provides first-come, first-served vehicle sites and walk-in sites in the Town Park Campground from mid-May to mid-October. You won’t find hook-ups here, but you will find panoramic views of the majestic San Juan Mountain peaks that surround what many consider to be the beating heart of this box canyon town. Other options for camping near Telluride are found just outside town, on Hipcamp or run by the Forest Service. These recreation areas offer cabin rentals and campground camping. Check out Matterhorn, Woods Lake and Sunshine Campgrounds. Sunshine is home to sites tucked in a dense aspen forest that boasts a picturesque mountain lake for cooling off. You’ll find dispersed camping in undesignated sites at Priest Lake State Park and primitive spots in the very popular, and very undeveloped, Alta Lakes Campground that’s nestled in a spectacular alpine setting. You won’t find any private campgrounds in the Telluride area, and the closest Colorado State Park is Ridgway State Park. Whether you pack it in, walk it in, or drive it in, this quaint mountain town plopped in the middle of a massive mountain range is designed to thrill campers.

Sunset is a color of blue like no other I have ever seen. You have to be here to experience the pastel sunsets over Mt. Gunnison.
View of the bee hives under 100 year-old cottonwood trees. Faces east to watch the sun rise over Mt Gunnison and Mt Lamborn.  See the sunset bounce off the mesas for a spectacular sunset.
