Antonito Colorado Camp
Ground is located along the
spectacular border of Colorado and New Mexico, 5 hours drive from Denver,
and a scenic one hour to Taos, Red River, and Chama, New Mexico, as well as
the Great Sand Dunes and nearby Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge.
In the early 1930's, Twin Rivers had an open air pavilion that served as the "hot spot" for weekend dances. Prior to that it was host to the Ute Indians as a summer camp ground in Colorado. Practically a historic landmark, these well maintained cabins and our RV camp ground in Antonito Colorado offers quiet solace with our privately stocked stream and cottonwood shade trees.
Situated along the Conejos River at 8,000' elevation, Antonito is the gateway to 40 miles of magnificent canyon where outdoor enthusiasts can fish, hunt, hike, and ride within minutes amidst breathtaking scenery of the Rio Grande Forest thick with pine and aspen, including glimpses of abandoned adobes and run down log cabins.
Upper Conejos River offers excellent trout fishing of rainbows and native browns. Platoro Reservoir, (where the U.S. largest gold nugget was mined), is stocked during the summer with rainbow, and soon after spring thaw there are some kokanee. Should you desire, guided fishing trips are available locally.
If you are hunting the New Mexico or Colorado region, this is a centrally convenient location for deer, elk, antelope, and bear, as we are 5 miles from the state line.
|Once the "mainline" of the infant Denver &
Rio Grande railroad, Antonito is now home to the Cumbres & Toltec historic steam
train, voted "America's most spectacular" narrow gauge railroad. Take an
excursion on the train and experience a step back in time and travel.
The nearby town, (and county seat), of Conejos boasts "the oldest church in Colorado" named Our Lady of Guadalupe.
We have the best of both worlds. The best of Southwestern culture including the annual green chile harvest and fall mushroom gathering, and the spirit of the Wild West with the ever common cattle drives and trail rides. Come visit!
Leave all your cares and worries outside the gate!
When you come to visit, please share some of the photos that you take during your stay and we will happily post them!
Have fun navigating our site.
