Silver Jack Campground (CO)

Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest

Silver Jack Campground has 60 campsites around three loops - Chipeta, Ouray and Sapinero. Each loop is heavily wooded with Aspen and a few spruce trees and an understory of tall grass and wildflowers. The campground is convenient to the Silver Jack Reservoir and a network of trails around the Cimarron Ridge. One of the three loops is often used for groups while the other two are for individual campers. Drinking water is available. There are no close communities to get provisions so visitors need to bring everything they need. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.

The campground offers single-family sites, each equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Some sites are handicap accessible.
