West Dolores Campground
Directions from Dolores, Colorado: Travel 21 miles north on Colorado Hwy 145 and Forest Development Road #535 to campground entrance.
West Dolores is one of three campgrounds along the West Dolores Road (Forest Rd. 535), which branches north from Colorado Highway 145 about 13 miles northeast of Dolores. The road follows the West Dolores River almost to its headwaters in the Lizard Head Wilderness. Side roads lead into the backcountry. After 32 miles, the road rejoins the highway 6 miles north of Rico. The road has a gravel surface, but the last 6 miles are steep, narrow, and not recommended for trailers.
West Dolores Campground is similar to Mavreeso and just a mile up the road. From Dolores, travel 21 miles north on Colorado Highway 145 and Forest Rd. 535 to the campground entrance.
