Camping at Platoro Reservoir

Conejos County has affordable campsites and RV parks.
Or you can camp on your own in the backcountry (called dispersed camping by the Forest Service).

There are 770 square miles of public lands (Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management), in Conejos County. Within these many acres you can find a scenic spot just for you. Please make sure to pack-out anything you pack-in.
