Nicely forested campground situated right on the Alpine Loop. Sites have decent spacing, although the site we were in had poor drainage. Had to dig some troughs to drain the pooling rainwater. Fires allowed, very pretty lakes with walking path. Excellent starting point for any 4x4 riding - just exit the park. - Seagrace

Castle Lakes Campground is a nice spot about 7 miles west of Lake City, Colorado. Two good size trout lakes are on the property. Be advised it costs $7.00/day to fish on the lakes in addition to the campground fee. The staff are friendly, camping sites are level, spacious, plenty of shade trees and all have power and water hookups. Only some sites have sewer hookups, which is why I rated this a "7" instead of a "10". If you end up with a site without a sewer hook-up, check with the front desk and they'll offer you a site with sewer hook-ups if one is available, or, let you pull into one that is temporarily unoccupied so you can dump your tanks. We dumped prior to leaving after 4 days of camping. The sites are mostly back-in sites but some very large TT and fifth wheels had no problems getting in and out. The scenery is tremendous! The lakes are surrounded by snow capped peaks. The campground elevation is over 9,000 feet so be prepared with warm clothes. Lake City is very small with only two small grocery stores. Be advised to bring food and beverages with you. There is Internet at the campground office and cell service is spotty at best. This campground is fairly remote and a wonderful getaway for hiking, fishing, 4-wheeling, jeep rentals, etc. It's not a place to come to if you want all the conveniences of TV or nearby shopping. We stayed at site number 48 which was large and had the best views (but no sewer hook-ups). - HangDiver

Just returned from Castle Lakes Camp Ground outside of Lake City CO. I've returned to this camp grounds year after year. Staff are very friendly, very helpful and you fell like you are very Welcome to their Camp Grounds. Bathrooms are always clean, Showers are always clean and Hot water every time I took a shower. They have jeep rentals, large lake with fairly nice size trout, full hook ups for RVs. A well stocked General store and just down the road, wild Moose, in two days I've seen 7 moose. Aspens were changing and snow along Alpine Loop. I will return there once again next year. I feel so relaxed and stress free while camping at Castle Lakes Camp Grounds. Thank you Castle Lake Staff. Keep up the good work. - Naturespaintbrush

Rustic campground in a spectacular setting above Lake San Cristobal. Road in is narrow and a bit rough but we saw some pretty big 5th wheels camped in the upper campground. Really a beautiful area with access to miles of hiking trails and ATV roads that reach all the way to Silverton CO. Pit toilets, water taps, no showers and the dump station is locked so it can only be accessed when the camp host is available. - cfmelville

High on the southern 'cliffs' overlooking Lake San Cristobal, this "no frills" campground offers excellent views and that often-elusive "peace and quiet!" Providing a convenient "base" for sight-seeing, fishing, or "four wheeling" any of the areas spectacular four wheel drive roads, Wupperman Campground is an excellent alternative to commercial campgrounds. We camped here many years ago when out two sons were young and the "remote-nest" of Wupperman gave them more of a true outdoor experience than they would have. - RFP

This county campground is spread out in various spots along the south side of gorgeous Lake San Cristobel. I stayed at the loop that was right on the waterfront, but other loops were perched higher on a bluff. No hookups and only pit toilets, but there was 1 dump station. Picnic tables had seen better days and it didn't appear that cleaning fire pits was one of the host's duties. But, despite all this, it is one of the most scenic camp sites I've ever stayed at! I launched my kayak literally 20 feet from the RV and the lake was calm and peaceful: only a few small fishing boats and another kayaker on the water. My dog enjoyed swimming from our site as well. I was able to get both ATT and Verizon cell service here, but not 3G so don't expect lots of speed. Overall, a lovely spot to stay a few days. - WinnieViews

I can't remember what we paid-It was more than what I was quoted on the phone several months ahead-Oh well. The staff is excellent and helpful. The park is nice and good location. We were in River Loop. The surface is a little uneven and has large size rocks gravel so be careful with your big outside mat. There is an odd odor all the time-I think it is from the river water. Everything was spotlessly clean. The laundry is excellent (it is back in the Forest Loop). We would stay here again in our Fifth Wheel. - ouachita princess

We stayed here about 14 years ago with our daughters. Loved it then. We came back this year with our 10 year old grandson. We are in a 35' Bumper Pull. RV Park is on a bend in the river. Quiet because it is not in town. Some of the sites in the new section have beautiful views of the river. All the sites are nicely spread out. Gravel sites. Very woodsy feel. (We aren't fond of concrete, overly manicured places; or sites were the RV's are squeezed in like sardines) Seems like many sites are pre-booked long in advance, so get your reservation in early. Cash or check ONLY to pay your balance when you arrive. Bathrooms/showers in the new section are awesome. Each RV site has a fire pit and picnic table. A cousin from the Co. Springs area drove down for the weekend. She had the "Fishing Cabin":Cute decor, comfortable beds. Minimal though...just bunk beds, and a double bed in the cabin. Sink, grill and picnic table outside. But better than a tent :-) - bsusan

One of the nicer RV parks we have stayed in. We booked late for a 4th of July weekend and the only spot left was RIGHT next to the showers and it was set up in a way that we would have had to pull in backwards and run our sewer and hookups under the rig but we were happy to take what we could get because we had an engagement that weekend there.
I requested that if someone cancelled that I would like a better spot and they said that they would let me know. Well, they never did and we got there to find that not only did we get a different spot but we got one of the better spots in that part of the campground with lots of trees and relative privacy.
We saw where we COULD have been and while it wouldn't have been terrible it would not have been great. The spots in front of the shower are typical zero privacy small spaces, but ours was great.
The restrooms and showers were immaculate, the staff super friendly and helpful and the RV park very quite with lots of residents living full time there.
We saw the other RV parks in Lake City, this one makes them all look pathetic, the others have you RIGHT next to your neighbors with zero room or privacy.
Will definitely return here again! - CORockies

Had a problem with our electric connection. Owner came out and tried to help. Called a local RV tech who came, located the problem, fixed it and charged a very reasonable amt. overall the park is very neat and clean, as are restrooms/showers. Owners are very friendly. - PaleoTex

Season is winding down so the campground was quiet. Owners are very friendly and helpful. This is not a big campground so a big rig can be difficult to maneuver into a spot. The campground is in a good location, it is possible to walk to town. The community fire pit and free coffee are a nice touch. The laundry room, showers and bathrooms were very clean. The wifi was slow and there is no cable tv, no campstore. There are no camping discounts so with tax, we thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. But we would stay here again. - mohocamper

The owners are very friendly Oklahoma people. This is one of the cleanest campgrounds I have stayed at. The campers are very friendly. There is a community fire pit lit in the evenings and free coffee in the morning.
This campground is not fancy but friendly. The campground is perfect for the area because there's a lot of 4-wheel activities in the area so people are gone during the day. In the evening, there are cute little restaurants to go to.
The only suggestion I would make. There needs to be better signs where the office is located. - buitts

We're new motor home owners & the owners & their 2 sons respected that. a staff member lead us in & watched carefully as we parked in slot 11 near the office. It is a little tight since the levels are carved out the side of a hill, but we've been to parks even tighter. They do have various activities under the canopy. Restrooms very clean, & except from 12-1 they are open as well as the laundry (which we used late one evening). Everyone very helpful & informative about places in the area. - Dago Denver

Stayed here last few days, end-of-season, October 2016.....great accomadations....clean restrooms, showers ...... sites a bit small and close but not unacceptable....hosts were quite friendly and helpful ... would recommend location for home base while 4WD adventures being explored. - OD45

There are some sites that are suitable for small trailers -- not big rigs. Campground is very well located, directly above (literally) Ouray. Great views. Shady and cool. If you are not sure you can fit in here, better to scout the sites without your trailer first. - Prof Dan

One of our all time favorites. In the area of the Silver Jack reservoir. 20 miles of gravel/dirt road to get there, but campground is paved. Beautiful groves of Aspen. Water available at faucet, clean vault restrooms. Closest dump station is at Cimarron Visitor Center campground on highway 50, 20 miles away. Access to lots of back country hiking, Jeeping. Price reflects use of Senior Pass. - User2112

This Rv park is very small. The lane to the sites are very narrow and we caught the top of our Rv on a tree trunk that jotted out into the road. I walked it off from the tree to the parked motorhome across the road were 17 steps of my size 8 feet. The tree caused almost 2000 dollars in damage to our rig. The sites are cramped on top of each other. We could smell the sewer of the motor home next to us. There is no where to park your vehicle once you unhook. The trailer next to us parked under our slide and kept hitting our trailer. We were yelled at by another person for hemming them In the "overflow" parking. We voiced our concerns to the owner but were treated rudely and disrespectfully. We will never stay there again no matter how nice Ouray is... - Hello Kitty

Great views at this park. The location is great! You can walk to town. Except for a few sites, they are crazy close together. My awning covered part of the trailer next to us. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The laundry room was clean but only had two washing machines and three dryers working. - Fishclan Adventures

Folks: It aint about the campground....Ouray is the most scenic town we have visited in Colorado. The mountains rise up at the edge of town....amazing. This campground is right in the middle of town well within walking distance. Check in was quick and easy. If you have a big rig: navigation can be a bit tight and most of the sites are narrow so, if you are sitting under your awning, you will have a ring-side seat when your neighbor dumps his tanks. The wifi is very slow and, although we had 4 bars of 4G signal on AT&T, it was very, very slow as well. The restrooms and laundry room were as clean as I have ever seen. The sound of the river is mesmerizing. We would definitely stay here again. There was a burn-ban while we were there...no outdoor campfires or charcoal grills. Propane grills were allowed and available at the hardware store downtown (well within walking distance). - GoHorns!

Nothing special about the sites - just a bunch of flat gravel sites with good room between rigs and easy access. No landscaping at all. HOWEVER, the reasons for the 9 star review are as follows - easy access, GREAT location to Ouray, great water pressure, nice view of the mountains, clean, level, good restaurant on site. We would recommend and return. - BigGuy82

This park was just a big gravel lot. Spaces are very close and our table was right next to the sewer connections of our neighbor. Everything in the park was nice and very well maintained. We paid for a premium space, but it wasn't all that much different than other spaces except for backing up to the river. There were many big rigs here because the driving areas are spacious and easy to maneuver around. Walking distance to the city so no car is necessary. There is a small restaurant on the grounds but we didn't go there. - Donskiman

Service, service, service. Clean restrooms, clean Park, great location! We messed up our reservation and they bent over backwards to accommodate our needs. Owners Jason and Amber are hands on and it shows in the details and customer service.
Our space was double wide against the river. Full service with 50 amp power, water and sewer. The entire park is crushed rock, minimal dust, and out site was level. Our space was against the river, but the view is obstructed by the mound behind the Airstream trailer. It might be better for larger RV's or 5th wheels
Check in was quick and east. My receipt was emailed and a paper copy provided as well. Jason directed us to our site and guided us into the space. - Pete Paradise
