This campground is just 1.5 miles from U.S. Highway 160 on the west side of Wolf Creek Pass and makes a convenient stopover on long road trips. But there’s an ever better reason to visit. It’s located just one mile from the trail to Rainbow Hot Springs, three natural pools in the Weminuche Wilderness. The campground has 28 sites, 15 of which can be reserved. There are bathrooms, drinking water and trash service, and the camping fee is $18 per night. Most sites are suitable for large RVs and a few are located along the West Fork of the San Juan River.
Recommended season(s): Memorial Day – Labor Day.
