South Rim Campground

South Rim Campground is located approximately 6 miles north of the intersection of CO Highway 347 and U.S. Highway 50 east of Montrose, CO.

All sites are in an oak-brush forest. Electrical hookups (30 amp) are available in summer in Loop B only. Generator use is not allowed in South Rim Campground. All sites have a maximum 14 consecutive day stay in a 30 day period. A maximum of 8 people and 2 vehicles are allowed per site. Vehicles greater than 35 feet are not recommended.

Reservations can be made for Loops A and B only, and must be made at least 3 days in advance. Loop C is first-come first served.

Dog Restrictions
From approximately June 1 to August 10, dogs are allowed in campsites, but may not be taken on walks (even on leash), and may not be carried around the South Rim Campground or on the Rim Rock Trail due to potentially aggressive deer protecting their fawns.
