We all know how crowded National Parks are now. It takes reservations months in advance to get a campsite. Well, it's almost as bad at State Parks now too, so be sure to call ahead. But the Ridgway park is well worth it: it has...More

Great place to picnic and paddle board with kids and friends! DOW officers could tone down the tickets as we are all there to be safe and have fun. It was almost harassing to get questioned in every little thing! I realize they are doing...More

The campground below the lake is very clean and well. Maintained. I used the laundry and it was inexpensive and worked well. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. The campsites have full hookups making it easy for RV's and tent campers alike. There are...More

The staff inside the Visitor's Center were extremely helpful. One was a park ranger and the other was a volunteer. We didn't really go through the Park, as we were on our way to the San Juan Scenic Highway, but my brother did purchase a...More

If you camp by the river you hear the noise of the highway. If instead you camp at Elk Ridge, you don't hear the noise at all. The Fall colors we're absolutely stunning. The Starlit nights were brilliant

Cell service is great at the lake and campgrounds. We have Verizon. I don't know about others.
We plan to tow a small trailer behind our Dodge minivan with two motorcycles. Will we have to pay the vehicle fee on all 3? We plan to ride our motorcycles around the area then put back on trailer at end of day. Thanks.
