We stayed in a yurt which had lights, a tiny fridge and small microwave. This made our camping experience very comfortable. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. The park makes a good home base to go and visit Ouray, Telluride and some...More
We were pleasantly surprised to fin electric hookups in a state park campground. Most sites are pull-through for easy RV access. There are campground facilities throughout with clean restrooms and laundromats. The views of the reservoir and surrounding hills and San Juan Mountains are gorgeous.
We went in on the Dallas Creek side and were able to drive right to the water's edge. A little muddy at the water, but kids had a blast. The wind picks up in the afternoon, so be prepared when you're out on the paddle...More
We have camped at the state park at least a half a dozen times. Coming from southern Arizona it's a nice place to cool off. We always stay in the larger Elk Ridge loop. More shade there and close to the playground. The sites a...More
Can't describe the experience. You really have to be there to understand what the mountains are like. Not anyplace like it anywhere. We enjoyed a nice, peaceful walk up and carried down unforgettable images of waterfalls and views indescribable by picture. Go here.

Dutch Charlie has two areas - Elk Ridge and Dakota Terraces. We stayed there at the end of May 2014 in our 37' 5th wheel. We did not have reservations. We drove through Elk Ridge to look for a site. Most of them did not have a view. There were lots of tall trees. Down below in the Dakota Terraces, the trees were not mature. The views were amazing. The snow capped mountains were on one side and the reservoir was on the other. So, we ended up staying in the Dakota Terraces.
The roads are one-way. So, I guess that is why you were told 1/2 are backwards. It is not really a problem. You can always back in if you would like to face the other way. When you look at the map, just imagine the direction you would be driving to back-in the sites that are not pull-thru. That should help figure out which direction the road is going. Hope that helps. Enjoy!
