We have COMPLIMENTARY Wifi, Drinking Water, Ice, Hot Showers, Bathrooms, Shade, and an equipped Camper's Kitchen for our guests to enjoy from April 15 - Oct 15! There are TIPIS, CAMPING CABINS, TENT and BOONDOCK SITES. WE ALSO HAVE A NAVAJO HOGAN (wood yurt) OPEN-YEAR ROUND. All of our sites are not listed here. We can also accommodate groups and small events but not public events. We have a private covered group site as well. Bright Star Campground: Once used as a church camp, it is now a Campground for all to enjoy! We are a perfectly located vacation campground on 40 acres with amenities and wide-open spaces. Amenities include hot showers, an equipped community kitchen, a pavilion with hammocks, tables, ping pong, etc. Enjoy complimentary coffee, eggs, filtered drinking water and more. Bright Star Campground is located in the Great Sage Plain in the shadow of Mesa Verde National Park with panoramic mountain/mesa views of the Four Corners region, all only 5 miles southeast of Cortez. We are in an arid desert climate. Water is scarce, stored in cisterns for use in camp. Because of this we ask that you be conservative with water use in camp. We are a cannabis-friendly destination but ask that Cannabis use stay at your campsite, cabin or tipi. There are many things to do/see nearby: Mesa Verde National Park, Canyons of the Ancients, Hovenweep National Monument and Phil's World Mountain Biking. Raft down the Dolores river, maybe rent a SUP or kayak and chill on a quiet reservoir. There are museums and cultural centers in the area as well. Durango is 45 min, Telluride is 1.5 hrs away, and Moab is about 2.5 hours away-including Arches and Canyonlands National parks. The best/nearest airport is in Durango. Cortez has Denver Air (Key Lime Air) with connections to Denver and Phoenix. The nearest large international airport is in Salt Lake City or Albuquerque.

Sunrise Small RV site w/Amenities
Fun spot with other campers and a communal area. Showers and bathrooms are separate, but still well kept. My site included electricity, table, and shading, which was ideal with how hot it was while I was there.

Bright star campground
It is a great atmosphere of community. We haven’t experienced this kind of campground on our travels yet. The community kitchen was great as well as the game area with a ping pong table. Met interesting people from all ages. Reminded me of a hostel atmosphere where people live alongside each other but have their own space.

Sunrise Small RV site w/Amenities
Super great camping area with 360 views. Plenty of space between campers and it has something for the RV, tent, and lodging. Amazing sunsets and National Park is right in front of you. Separate bathroom and showers and a central meeting building with games and a kitchen for all to use. Can’t beat the location and hosts are super nice and responsive. We’re coming back for sure!!

Great stay and great distance from everything you would want to see in the area. Owners were very friendly and they had everything you would need.
