Mountain scenery mingles with magnificent campgrounds at Ridgway State Park. Modern, universally-accessible recreation areas and the five-mile long reservoir make memorable days and nights. Only 15 miles from the town of Ouray, Ridgway's great outdoors - the "Switzerland of America" - welcomes those from near and far. The parks popular campgrounds, beautiful reservoir, picnic and playground areas, extensive trails, and diverse wildlife offer year-round activities for all types of outdoor enthusiasts. Come enjoy our swimbeach too! There is so much to see and do in this peaceful, sunny, beautiful spot of Colorado. Come and enjoy it! The BOAT RAMP is OPEN for the season. All trailered watercraft must be inspected prior to launch. Inspection hours are available in the 'Conditions' for the park.

One of my favorites. Spring with a little snow is my favorite times to hike this one.
