One of the nicest campgrounds in the state. The sites are well designed with plenty of room for campers and tents. Shower facilities are available in each loop, which is very convenient.

Stayed in our fifth wheel in the Dakota Ridge campground at Ridgway State Park. Our site was nice (58HA). We had some privacy and an open area all our own. The site was not level at all, so we had some issues getting it level....More

We aren't campers so I cannot comment on the camping aspect. I can, however, say that this is a pretty spot. The camping places are spaced far apart and look clean. There is a very short loop trail that is very scenic.
