Nice setting on the banks of the Purgatory River. Wonderful listening to the wind in the trees. Feels like being in wilderness. If light sleeper and do not enjoy traffic noise bring ear plugs to ensure a good nights rest.
We loved our stay at Purgatory Riverbottom. It was so nice to be able to stay in town yet camp at the same time. We were able to walk and ride our bikes into town and experienc all the conveniences of that. Dusty was so friendly and we were very appreciative of the opportunity to camp on his land. There is a port a potty, our site was almost perfectly level, they are all right near the river, and you are looking right up at the illuminated Trinidad sign! Thank you Dusty for the awesome stay. We hope to stay here again for a future trip.
The best of both worlds
This is an amazing campsite. Dusty, the host, was the most accommodating and generous fellow I've yet to meet running one of these (and I've been to quite a few over the years). The different sites are sufficiently rugged to get the full camping experience while being right there in the city. You really feel like you're way out in the woods while down in the camp grounds, but just a short (2-3 minute) hike from the parking area, and then another couple minutes to the closest gas station, or whatever else you might need in Trinidad. The occasional train or siren is the only thing to give it away, otherwise you feel like you're in the country. I cam across a medium doe and a LARGE fox while hiking the trails. The water is great to wade around in if you're hot (not deep enough to properly swim), and the little pools were fun to lounge in. 10/10, will definitely be going back.
Clean and convenient!
Dusty is very responsive, nice and welcoming! The campground is close to downtown and clean. It is close to I25, but it was not very noisy and the other campers were quiet and respectful. We were there for the RAD Dirt Fest- super fun!
Very convenient spot to access town and trails out of town. Love the trail landmarks (tv), each campsite was nice and private. Only downside was some road noise at night, but to be expected in town.
