Beautiful area on a cliffside just on the opposite side of the road of Taylor River. The water is great, bathroom is kept tidy, and unlimited firewood for your campsite all provided by Sam. They are very welcoming and accommodating. Loved the experience, would go there again.

We loved camping here! There are only walk-in tent sites so no generators and there’s plenty room between sites. Sam is the best. We will be back. Thank you for such a great time!

Campfire Ranch has the best approach to camping that I've ever seen! Whether you're on a road trip planning a week at a time and can't deal with rec.gov bs, or trying to get into the outdoors without buying all of the gear, Campfire Ranch has got a spot and the gear for you. Incredibly clean and well thought trough all around. Sam was a great host and helped us plan and make most of our time in CO. Be sure to check out their website for more info. Hope they open up more!

My wife and I came to Campfire Ranch to spend a couple nights unwinding from our busy lives and found the best little oasis to fill our needs. Sam was our host, and a fantastic one at that. From the moment we arrived, he was a constant help and encouragement for our weekend aspirations. He taught us the best way to build a fire (and keep it burning), offered us a complimentary tent to borrow after our first night of stormy weather that rendered ours incapable of keeping us dry, and made a ton of great recommendations for hikes, sites and activities in the area. The campsite was fairly close to both Gunnison and Crested Butte, making it easy to pop over there for some exploring or staying in our little nook next to the Taylor River. We will absolutely come back to this campsite, no doubt about it. Thanks again Sam for the wonderful hospitality!

This place is awesome! Sam is super accommodating and really knowledgable about the area. Anything you're interested in doing, he can help guide you in the right direction. I love the concept of Campfire Ranch. It's the perfect place if you're brand new to camping--they have everything you need. If you forget pots and pans, they are only $5 to rent. If you want to try out a Yeti cooler, a nicer tent/sleeping bag, you can rent those too. Unlimited (free) firewood and kindling, shovel/bucket and picnic table at your campsite is super convenient. The only thing to note is that the campsites are pretty close next to each other (much like most organized campgrounds). I highly recommend!!
