Tucked in the teeny town of Ridgway, Colorado, in the valley of the San Juan Mountains, Basecamp 500 is an outdoor lover’s paradise. The glampground—located 30 minutes from the Montrose Regional Airport—is comprised of a mix of canvas wall tents, tiny homes, and RV sites. Just-like-home amenities here include WiFi, pillow top beds, mini fridges, microwaves, and fireplace heaters.
For a tiny house experience, book a casita replete with full kitchens, stylish seating areas, and private bathrooms. Bringing the RV? The property features gravel campsites with two hookup site options.
Design the day with activities including a day trip to Telluride, or dare to brave a 14er (Mount Sneffels at 14,157 feet is nearby.) At Orvis Hot Springs, soothe tired and sore muscles in one of seven soaking mineral pools, and end the day with a locally-crafted beer at a pub in Ridgway. Back at Basecamp, turn in for the night and gear up for another day of exploration and adventure.
