Amphitheater Campground - Ouray RD
Amphitheater Campground is located on the side of a mountain above Ouray, CO. The campground is tightly designed with loops and 35 camping spurs among Gambel oaks and mixed conifers. There is a scenic overlook from the campground of Ouray and the "Amphitheater," which was formed by a volcanic explosion.
