Amphitheater (Co) Overview
Perched on the side of a mountain above the historic town of Ouray (CO), Amphitheater Campground offers 35 campsites set among oaks and mixed confers. There is also a scenic overlook from the campground of Ouray and the “Amphitheater”.
The popular campground is best suited for tent camping and small trailers. Sites 32-35 are ‘walk-to’ tent sites (about 20 to 80 feet from parking area), and sites 26 and 27 (about 100 to 150 feet from parking area). Each site also has a table, lantern post fire ring and grill. RV’s can park in sites 3 to 15.
Campground amenities include drinking water, vault toilets and trash collection. You can also purchase firewood from the camp host. Cell service is fair in the area.
Amphitheater – Area Recreation & Activities
We definitely recommend spending some time in the historic mining town of Ouray. It’s about 1/2 mile from the campground and offers a variety of shops, restaurants and also a public hot spring pool. There are also many historic (mining) sites in the area. Other activities include hiking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, picnicking and wildlife viewing.
