Burro Bridge Campground – San Juan National Forest

There are 12 campsites on a sloping hillside above the river. A few trees give shade, and there are tent sites. Parking pads are wide enough to accommodate RVs. One site has a table suitable for wheelchairs.

A nearby corral is next to two campsites, for those camping with stock ($5/day). Two bays can accommodate 2 horses a day.

Location: Two miles northeast of Dunton, Burro Bridge 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.
