Sleep out under the stars.

The Telluride area offers up a variety of amazing locations for your chance to enjoy camping in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. From backpacking destinations to walk-in and drive-in campgrounds, we have something for everyone. 

While we welcome RVs, available parking space in our quaint towns is limited. RVs are only allowed to park overnight in Telluride Town Park Campground and sleeping in your RV is only allowed when your vehicle is parked in a designated campsite. The maximum length of RVs allowed in the Telluride Town Park Campground is 30 feet; that number must include the length of the vehicle pulling it. Sorry, no electrical hookups or RV dump stations are available on-site. The RV dump station is at the wastewater treatment plant at Society Turn.

RVs and trailers may park in the Mountain Village in the Gondola Parking Garage, levels 1, 3 and 4 only, and require two tickets at the rate of either $14 per day or $50 overnight (valid for 24 hours).
