Pine Ridge Botanical Sanctuary

1 site · Lodging2 acres · Ridgway, CO
This handsome Earthwork's tipi is situated in a private location amidst a lovely Ponderosa pine grove on the West side of the Uncompaghre river valley. Abundant birds fill the forest with their song and the tipi deck is a great perch for watching them flit through the forest. The land is just 10 minutes from Ridgway or ten minutes to Ouray (by car). The tipi sits on an elevated deck to provide a flat, dry space and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It is comfortably appointed with a memory foam pad atop a futon bed with clean sheets and cozy blankets. There's a propane cook stove, a picnic table, a few lounge chairs and fresh drinking water. Cheery solar-powered fairy lights make it easy to see inside at night and the shady hammock spot should not be missed for those seeking a blissful afternoon nap. Guests are most welcome to use the private, indoor, 3/4 bathroom in the apothecary shop at the main house on the property. A 2 minute walk along a nature trail from the tipi gets you there. Towels and toiletries are not provided. There are over 80 varieties of medicinal plants growing on the property. Some are in formal and informal gardens, others in the greenhouse and others grow wild in the forest. A comprehensive line of botanical products are created in the Apothecary on site. Tours are available by appointment. (970) 708-0236 Activities close by include: hiking trails within minutes of the land, rock climbing in Ridgway and Ouray, a via ferrata, the box canyon waterfall and hot springs are all just ten minutes away.

The Sundance Ridge - Telluride

1 site · RV, Tent40 acres · Sawpit, CO
"The most incredible views in Colorado" Perched on the edge of a 2,000 ft canyon, surrounded by an aspen grove and jagged peaks, there is no equal. In the beautiful Aspen grove and next to the ridge with canyon and mountain views. This is probably one of the most beautiful camp sites in all of Colorado. Hike on the property, especially the Ridge Hike" that goes along the ridge, featuring rock outcroppings and jaw-dropping views. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids camped out on the property before and after he robbed his first bank, which is still located in Telluride. This is where the name comes from. Please clean up after your pet and yourself. If there is dog or human waste of any kind of trash left behind, there will be a fee added to your reservation. Help keep the place pristine 😊

Thunder Heart Horse Sanctuary

1 site · LodgingRidgway, CO
This property on Amelia Street is the only 10-acre parcel in Ridgway.  Years ago, it was part of a larger parcel, owned by an eccentric woman - a very wealthy land owner.  She and the famous Marie Scott were land-owning buddies back in the day. I purchased this land in 1999 and actually moved onto the property in 2005 after renovations.  The cabin you will be staying in was renovated in 2012 when a bathroom was added. The property supports horses and llamas. All are friendly, most of them are retired - the horses, that is...the llamas are lawn ornaments.Cottonwood Creek and the Dallas River run through the property.

Camping near Ouray guide

Overview

With the jagged San Juan Mountains looming overhead, it's no wonder Ouray is called the "Switzerland of America." This is your go-to spot for Colorado adventure in every season. Get stoked about mountain hikes in the summer, or enjoy ice climbing and skiing in the winter. The town also boasts five hot springs—the perfect place to wind down after a weekend of high country camping. Campgrounds and RV parks in Ouray, CO offer craggy mountain views and easy access to hiking trails. (If they're filled up, check nearby Telluride and Silverton). If glamping at high altitude sounds more appealing, hunker down in a tipi, cabin, or yurt. For rugged tent camping, look no further than the Uncompahgre National Forest. Dazzling peaks and alpine tundra make up this 944,000-acre wilderness surrounding Ouray. Pitch a tent in the backcountry, or camp on top of the world at the Amphitheater Campground. There's nothing quite like sleeping under conifers with views of a volcano-carved amphitheater. Another outdoor haven is Ridgway State Park—one of the most popular parks in Colorado. Nestled just 15 miles outside of Ouray, this camping spot is famous for its mountain reservoir. Spend the day boating, fishing, windsurfing, and swimming, or explore the network of onshore hiking trails.
