All camping vehicles must be parked perpendicular to the Ameri-Gas Lot, unless otherwise instructed by a staff member.






A $20 non-refundable deposit, per reservation, will be charged to your M/C or VISA at the time of reservation. This non-refundable deposit will go towards your first night’s stay when you arrive. We require a valid credit card in your name(valid ID also required) at check-in. Your credit card will be pre-authorized for the full cost of the reservation. If at check-out you choose to pay cash for your reservation please be advised that the pre-authorized funds may not be available for up to 10 business days. We have a 48-hour cancellation policy. That means if there is at least 48 hours notice of cancellation you will only forfeit your $20 deposit. If you cancel less than 48 hours ahead (or don't show) your credit card will be charged full price for the night's reservation. If this is a multiple night reservation and we don't hear from you, you will be charged for the first night and all other reserved nights will be forfeited and made available to people on the stand-by list.
Parking All day-soaker’s vehicles are to park perpendicular to the building or the Ameri-Gas fence. Registered overnight guests will be assigned parking on arrival.

People wishing to walk their pets should use County RD. 3, (south towards Ouray). Make sure you clean up after your pet! In order to provide a peaceful and tranquil experience for everyone, we require pets to be on a leash at all times.

Guest Behavior All guests are welcome here until their behavior interferes with another’s visit. If a person is blatantly being rude, they will be asked to leave immediately, without refund. If two people complain about someone being aggressive in ways such as staring, drooling, being invasive, etc., that person will be asked to leave permanently.
