West Dolores is one of three campgrounds along the West Dolores Road (Forest Rd. 535). The road follows the West Dolores River almost to its headwaters in the Lizard Head Wilderness. Side roads lead into the backcountry. After 32 miles, the road rejoins the highway 6 miles north of Rico. The road has a gravel surface, but the last 6 miles are steep, narrow, and not recommended for trailers.
- West Dolores River Fishing: Parking for fishermen is available near the campground. Please not, there are several parcels of private land along the river; please stay on the trail and do not trespass.
- Mountain biking: available on Forest Development Roads #532 and #535. Forest Service Trail #624 is 2.0 miles south of the campground.
Barrier-free sites are available.
