Elk Ridge Campground
Reviewed 20 June 2015

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.

Reviewed 9 July 2012

The campground was clean and generally quiet. Importantly there is shade among the pinyon and juniper. There are centrally located restrooms and showers. If you are in an Rv there are no on site sewer or water hookups, but there are taps close to the sites. There is electric however. Had there been full hookups I would have given 4 Stars. It is a good base for touristing around the area.
