Camping in Rio Grande National Forest is the ideal situation to take some time to yourself and unwind while enjoying nature and avoiding people. Ninety-five percent of Mineral County is public lands. You'll be sure to find your ideal camp spot, from a campground to an RV site, and even a dispersed camping location. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace while you are enjoying the backcountry. Remember, you are in the forest and may encounter wildlife. Be sure to lock your food and trash in your vehicle at night and that you have cleaned up your campsite before calling it a day. Looking to build a campfire? Take a moment and watch this Campfire Etiquette video. Scroll down and enjoy some virtual tours of the campgrounds in our neck of the woods. Be sure to stop by the Visitors Center for an area guide and up-to-date information regarding any fire restrictions. The Mineral County Landfill is open Monday, Thursday, and Saturday to accept your trash. There is an RV dump station 1/10 of a mile from the Visitors Center on Rio Grande Ave where you may empty your RV tank and fill up with fresh water.

 As of August 19, 2020, the State of Colorado is under a state-wide fire ban. Beginning August 21, Rio Grand National Forest will be observing Stage 1 Fire Restrictions.
