Best camp site

This is an amazing place to stay about 30 minutes away from Great Sand Dunes and Zapata Falls. Fishing/ Hunting license required but the camp host never came to check. Free electric hookups/ vault toilets/ dump stations/ fire rings. Very safe and quiet. There were plenty of marked camp sites. Looking forward to my next stay!

FREE Electric Hookups

I love this place. It's technically free although it does require a fishing or hunting license available from https://www.cpwshop.com/purchaseprivilege.page?displayCategoryID=251532604 🌙 There is someone here who will check although he said he usually let's ppl slide the first night. Pit toilets are available and the electric hookups are free (30/50). Super close to the Great Sand Dunes with some spectacular views. I was told you can stay 14 days, leave for 5, and come back for another 14.

I had great cell service with Sprint throughout most of the wildlife area. Be careful in nearby Alamosa though as the cops are total asshats and always out thick.

Free but CO fishing or hunting license required

Lots of developed campsites with sheltered picnic tables and W/E hookups. No swimming allowed, but boating is welcome. The water level was low when we visited in October. Also has a dump station. 1-day fishing license is $17 for adults @ https://www.cpwshop.com/purchaseprivilege.page?displayCategoryID=251532604. Additional days are $6. Annual pass for kids is $10 w/ adult license.

Amazing view and great place for a night

Technically you’re supposed to pay but there was no one to enforce that so it was free. Had electricity hookups and great views the bathrooms were locked. No nosy neighbors or rangers poking around. Somebody started a bonfire during a fire ban so the sheriff was cruising around all night though. I didn’t realize how cold the desert got in summer time at night.

Beautiful view

San Luis State Wildlife Park. Great view of the mountains, sand dunes, sunset and sunrise... Stars were incredible at night. Picnic table with shelter from wind and sun and fire pit. Can be very windy .Didn't try the toilets bc the previous review said they were closed, but have electric. Technically it is not free bc you should have a Colorado State Park pass or fishing or hunting license. We were here late November, so no one around. I read it is very busy in May and June. https://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/Parks/Sanluis

Beautiful lakes

Stayed here for one night in November. beautiful scenery. Technically you need a fishing license to stay I think but I had no problems. Campsites with picnic tables shade and fire pits. Toilets but they were closed when I was there.
