  • Friendly staff, community events, and world-class trout fishing. This is the kind of camp ground where if you need help moving a table or need some flour people are more than happy to help. Most of the people who stay all season are from pleasant states such as Texas, Oklahoma, Lousiana, New Mexico, Florida, etc. The owner was a sheriff and there are other law enforcement professionals in the community here so it's very safe despite being so remote. Conjones River Campground RV Park is within walking distance of the Conjones River and the superb quality fly-fishing it offers. A few miles down the road is Trujillo Meadows, an easily accessible 69-acre lake suitable to float-tubing, small non-power boats, or shore fishing. If you have 4WD or take it slow in a 2WD vehicle with sufficient clearance you can head up to Platoro, a massive and productive reservoir. In addition you can explore the various other streams and creeks in the area, one such creek worth fishing is Elk Creek, just a ten minute ride from the camp ground. Hiking trails are plentiful and many can be challenging. You can do any thing from a few hours walking to backpacking for a week on nearby trails. Don't confuse this camp ground with the neighboring state park campground which has no electricity, internet, or phone availability. You can fish all along the state park part of the river without paying the state park campground. Do not be confused by this setup as the two parks are connected by a network of foot paths and an informal service road (vehicles can not cross between the camp grounds without accessing the main road). The campground is close enough to TMobile and Verizon towers in the neighboring valley that a short walk up to the church will put you in cell coverage. Alternatively a cell phone booster will easily give you a bar or two of 4G LTE. Basic supplies such as fuel and food essentials as well as several recreational marijuana disparities are located in nearby Antonito, about a 20 minute drive down into the valley. Do not ever speed through Antonito, the town is heavily pedestrianized for it's small size and the local cops run radar literally 24/7. The one mile strip of road in the entire country where the speed limit is consistently enforced can be found here :) Antonito also offers one of the last operating narrow guage steam engines in the world. For around $30 per person it takes you through 30 miles of Colorado and New Mexican vistas. It stops several times both ways to load water. Great activity for children but every one should try it once. It arrives at an old train depot in the mountains and there you receive a very good complimentary lunch. There is also a gift shop there, bathrooms, etc. Two trains run and you will likely see the 2nd train arrive from Chama, NM. After lunch you ride the train back to your car. It takes about 4 hours total. Most of that 4 hours is riding the train through the mountainous passes. Seating is informal and you can roam the train, there is an open car which offers the best views. Alamosa is a much larger town about 45-60 minutes away that has everything a mid-size town typically does: several supermarkets, a Walmart Supercenter, small college, restaurants, down town area with some artsy stores, etc. There's a tiny satellite airport if you are flying in or out. There's car rental there and you can get a 16 passenger air shuttle to DIA. Plan to come and stay a while. There's a lot to do in the neighboring areas and this campground makes a good base camp for fishing, hiking, and exploring the southern Rockies.

  • A little out of the way but once we got there enjoyed the quiet and nice walk along the river. Price was very reasonable

  • Beautiful location. Close to the river. Would stay again and recommend to others

  • The great outdoors

  • We stayed at Conejos River RV for a week in June with 2 other RV campers. We had a wonderful time. The owners were very nice, we had a lot of fellowship and getting to know each other. We will definitely be back and would recommend this campground. It really was one of the friendliest camp sites were have been to, helped us with whatever we were doing.
