After leaving Ridgway State Park we traveled to Gunnison, CO, and stayed 2 nights at Palisades SR. RV Park. This is a really neat park that supports the SR. program in Gunnison. Most of the people spend May – September and they have lots of activities.
After the 2 days here we traveled 16 miles to Elk Creek CG in the Curetani National Forrest. This was right on a lake and very nice, so we decided to stay a week.
While at Elk Creek we took a day drive to Crested Butte. A very touristy town but lots of neat stores.
From Elk Creek we traveled a short distance to the Salida East BLM Land which is now run by Colorado State Parks. No longer a free camping site which we stayed in many . times. Now, with very little improvement, it is $28.00 a night, plus the Colorado State Vehicle Day Use Fee of $8.00. Luckily we bought this pass last year and ours is still good.
Next post will be as we continue traveling through Colorado.
