Report: Nice CG right above Ouray with a beautiful view of the valley. Very winding road around the campsites for good isolation from others. Not uncommon to see white tail deer roaming the grounds in early evening. Just note that if you have dogs you will be required to keep them on leashes so they don't chase the deer.
Conditions: I tried to get a space on Labor day weekend but to no avail. so making a reservation is a good suggestion.
Water Availability: Service at the CG were just excellent and a very friendly host.
