There are many camping opportunities on the San Juan National Forest. We offer developed campgrounds and more isolated dispersed camping areas. With some pre-planning you can find a perfect spot for you and your family. While sewer, water hook-ups and showers are not available; most campgrounds have drinking water, picnic tables, fire rings and vault toilets.

Campground reservations may be made at some sites through by phone at 877-444-6777 or online at Where available, reservations are recommended for summer weekends.

Campsites that have been paid for in advance will be posted as “Reserved.”  Only a portion of a given campground’s sites can be reserved each day, with the remainder available for first-come, first-served use.

San Juan National Forest campgrounds are operated by the Rocky Mountain Recreation Company.  The allocation of sites available for reservation will be evaluated on an annual basis and will be modified, as needed, to maximize customer satisfaction and accommodate use patterns.

“The reservation system allows visitors who want to plan their camping stays in advance to be assured of a campsite,” said Brian White, San Juan National Forest Recreation Staff.  “At the same time, all of our campgrounds will still allow for spontaneous camping visits on a first-come-first-served basis at other sites.”

We are working on getting recycling at all our campgrounds. Until then, you can pack out & recycle in local communities. Check campground bulletin boards or our app for detailed locations:
