9700-foot elevation. 5 campsites on the Alamosa River. The ghost town of Stunner is just east of the campground. This was a mining town that failed due to nonproducing mines and transportation problems. Parts of the town are private property, so pack out all your trash and observe posted trespassing signs. Stunner Campground is beside the Alamosa River 2 miles below the top of Stunner Pass. There are 5 campsites with tables, fireplaces, vault type toilet, and adequate parking. There is no water supply, bring your own. Firewood is limited. Convenient trailer spaces available. The Alamosa River is nearby for fishing, unfortunately naturally acidic water severely limits fishing in the Alamosa River between Stunner Campground and Terrace Reservoir. Big game hunting is possible.
