2 tent sites
We believe campgrounds should be more fun, more accessible and more inclusive for all kinds of campers - that's why we started Campfire Ranch to make camping easier. Our campground is nestled between the granite walls of Taylor Canyon alongside the Taylor River in central Colorado, halfway between Gunnison and Crested Butte, CO. If you've never been to the area, get ready to be amazed, with over 2,500 square miles of public land, 700+ miles of singletrack trail and countless rivers, creeks and lakes to explore. We'll see y'all in the woods! Learn more about this land: *We will open May 19th for the 2024 season!* Camp and adventure in the Gunnison-Crested Butte valley at Campfire Ranch on the Taylor. Book now on our website for additional availability and site details at: Campfireranch.co - we feature walk-in tent only campsites, convenient amenities, demo camping equipment and a full Adventure Concierge service! Bookings are available up to 30 days in advance. Please contact us before booking if you are seeking a family focused experience - we do not have a kids area or playground and require that children under the age of 16 be in the company of an adult at all times due to our proximity to Co Rd 742 and the Taylor River. No multi-room tents are allowed at camp, we simply don't have the room, the largest tent size we can accommodate is 12'x12' - please inquire if you have specific tent questions. You can check-in with us anytime after 3pm the day of your reservation, please message us if you need to check-in after 8pm. All campers will be required to sign our release of liability waiver before camping (parents/guardians will have to sign for minors in your group) - you can review these terms and rules on our website: CampfireRanch.co

Best place to camp
This campsite was WONDERFUL! Very private while also having phone service was nice. The staff was AMAZING and had wonderful suggestions. I loved that they provided the firewood. It was already cut and they even provided some kindling. The site is very well maintained and they do have the best bathroom in the Valley! Will be back again!

You’ll Come Back To Campfire Ranch
This is the best camping spot in the state! Gunnison, Crested Butte, Ouray and the other places to explore in this area are a hiker’s dream. Waterfalls, Rock Canyons, Rivers, you name it… This area has it! One could spend their entire life here and not scratch the surface of all the wonders this area has to offer. However, what made our trip amazing was the site itself. Campfire Ranch is the right amount away to keep everything “wild” while located perfectly for any activity needed within town. You will not be left wanting with this location. The best part of our stay was Campfire Ranch itself. As a camper, I always feel like I’m either in BLM land or an RV park. Campfire Ranch is the first place I’ve camped that I truly feel was MADE for tent folk. This business has fire wood (free), wheel barrels (free), fire starter (free), toilets (you guessed it, free), and seclusion. Sam (the owner), and his team are delightful people that take pride in what they are doing and it shows they really care. Stopping at the front desk will leave you in a 30-60 minute conversation with whomever is working it because you genuinely care about them and they you. This is something special that you have to try. Mark my word, you’ll be a repeat camper at Campfire Ranch. See you there!
