We stayed here for 2 nights : 22$/night + 10$ reservation fee + 7$/day State park entrance; electricity included. Located within the Ridgway State park boundaries (hence the state park entry fee), 5 miles from the small town of Ridgway and 20 miles from the larger town of Montrose. There are 2 other campgrounds within the state park boundaries : Dakota Terrace Campground (80 sites, electricity only) and Pa-co-chu-puk campground (80 sites, full hookup but just beside Hwy550).
Elk Ridge campground(100 sites in 2 loops) is the best choice of the 3 campgrounds : large scenic sites, a lot of trees, quiet, enough sanitary stations and water faucets, central laundry and showers (1$/4 minutes), central dump station. Short trails begin at the campground. Swimming possible at the Beach house plaza in Ridgeway reservoir.
