Ouray Colorado

Spent the last few days at the Ouray RV park. Nice thing about this park is location. From the park you can walk to anything in Ouray, restaurants, Hot springs, shopping, and trails. The folks at the park are very helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed our time in Ouray. TT performed flawlessly. This is so far from boondocking or"outback" RV park but would still highly recommend as a base camp for exploring the mountains in the area. Known locally as "The Switzerland of America".
Checked all through the park but didn't find any other Forum members. I have my forum stickers proudly displayed front and back of the TT. John or Soudough can tell you how to get yours if you don't already have a set.
Took along two of the German Shepherds and they behaved well, even when we took them to the Ourale House Brewery, home of that famous brew master "Mr. Grumpy Pants."

That sounds like a good trip. I would love to visit Ouray, it is definitely on my list. Thanks for the report regarding the RV park. I will check it out when we are headed that way.

Here is the link to the thread explaining how to obtain the forum decal if anyone is interested.

Thanks for your review. We plan to travel through Colorado next summer and will plan on a stay at Ouray. I see it’s not too far from telluride (as the crow flies). No wonder the mountains surrounding Ouray are spectacular.

Ha! The key here is "as the crow flies"!! Unless you go back thru Durango to get to Telluride there is a mountain range between Ouray and Telluride, albeit a very beautiful mountain range. I've made the trip "up and over" many times and loved it. It is best done mid summer or the condition of the passes can be questionable. I've made them in Jeeps, Hummer, 4runners. If/when you go, take Imogene pass via Tomboy mine straight into Telluride. I love it, my wife hates it, especially the little bridge built out into space over nothingness (a very deep cliff) which leaves her very unsettled. The first time I came out of Telluride and she was over the "hole". After that I come from Ouray which puts me "out there". It is one way at times so be watchful; and keep an eye out for marmots - we think they are pretty cute.

Thanks sourdough - canít wait. My wife has ďcanít not lookĒ syndrome when she thinks my driving is going to result in her demise. Instead of closing her eyes or looking away, she stares for max effect. Sounds like an epic ride. Iím giddy already.

I would take Black Bear pass to Telluride if it was open. It’s not. At least not yet. Drive a capable 4x4 and control your pucker reactions, and there is nothing grander.

My dad has a 5er parked behind his cabin on the Alpine Road on other side of Engineer ion way to Lake City from Ouray. Gods country right there.

I agree that it's God's country for sure. If taking Black Bear whoever does it needs to know you don't want to take your "Expedition" or "Tahoe"....watch word is "capable" - both in truck and 4x4ing.. And, it is one way.

We took a guided trip over black bear, in this





We love camping in Colorado.

Last September, when we left Ridgway state park we went north through Montrose and took 50 east to 149 south through Lake City... What a drive... God's country indeed!
