Coworking Space with Mountain Views

6 sites · RVs, Tents6 acres · Montrose, CO
We bought a school house! Our long-term plan is to build out a full campground on the property, but in the interim we will be offering boondocking. While we are under construction on the outdoor space, the main building that we have converted into a coworking space is available for our guests to use from the hours of 9AM - 6PM. Unfortunately, we are on old agricultural land so the sites are in the direct sun during the day. Please be aware that it gets hot out here in the summer and take this into consideration when booking your stay with us. Please note that there is only one camping structure allowed per site (one tent, one rv, one van, etc.). Since we are under construction we ask that you use caution when pulling into the lot. Our property is also on a bike trail that connects to 70 miles of (mostly paved) bike trails across the town of Montrose. Please reach out with any questions. We look forward to hosting you!

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.
