“wonderful place to camp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2009

we are still camping at the 4j+1+1 while writing this review. The staff are very friendly and courteous. Campground is extremely clean and has showers, ice, etc. very close to town which is a plus. The views are incredible and you are also very close to the river. There is nothing negative about this vacationing experience in this campground and I would recommend to everyone. This campground is much better than the Ridgeway State Park.
Thank you to the owners of the 4j+1+1 for making vacationing families a much enjoyable place to stay. they also have wifi

This campground was good for the proximity to all attractions to Ouray. Our campsite was a pull through and didn't offer a campfire ring. The pull through sites are close together but during the day you shouldn't be in the campground because there is too much to see and do. for those looking for a jumping point to the mountains this is your spot. For those looking to camp in the wilderness do it somewhere else.

This campground is located in an outstandingly beautiful part of Colorado! It offers spectacular scenes from any site. It has level gravel sites close to the river as well as farther back. It has free WiFi. There are new secure bathrooms that are clean and vary spacious and heated! It is just a short walk to the town of Ouray, which we found a wonderful town to visit.

We loved this campground! I traveled with my husband (the only experienced tent-camper in the family) and my two children, ages 5 and 9. Having never camped before, the kids and I were all a little nervous--but everything about this campground was welcoming, clean and fun. It is close to town, so walking to coffee shops, restaurants, hot springs, waterfalls, and shopping was easy. The staff at the campground were very helpful and kind. I couldn't believe how clean the bathroooms were. Not to mention the beautiful views of the mountains from the main road through the campground. We couldn't have asked for a better camping vacation experience!

  • Liked — Location -- close to the main street in Ouray, walking distance to everything
  • Disliked — Camp sites were a little small and very close to each other.

Our first experience camping in Ouray and at the campground with the quirky name was terrific! We were out for our maiden voyage in our new "used" popup and wanted to stay relatively close to home (Montrose), so having heard about 4J from friends we decided to give it a try for a weekend. We camped with our 3 sons, ages 9,8 and 5.

This campground is tucked in at the base of the canyon wall and a large sign off the main drag in Ouray easily directs you to it. Upon arriving we were not initially impressed with the view from the office located right at the entrance, but once out of our behicle it was apparent this place was spic and span clean...I mean immaculate. We've stayed in many private and public campgrounds and this was by far the neatest.

We were greeted before we even made it in the office door by a couple of friendly staff gentleman, and were helped out be equally warm and inviting family members at the desk. We were given a small bag with brochures of the area and directed to our site. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the showers were free and there was internet access in much of the park.

Our site was right on the river and the rushing water was moving quite fast due to incedible snow levels and run off this past year. Across on the other bank was a set of what appeared to be apartments or condos that were ewll kept and we never saw anyone outside.

The sites are small, as has been mentioned in previous reviews, but the picnic table appeared to be freshly painted,m the grill had been cleaned before our arrival, and we had shade which was wonderful. We never felt invaded by neighbors due toi the closeness of the sites, but some people might not feel comfortable with it. However, we were able to fit in our very large popup trailer, a large Dodge Pick up as well as our mini-van. It was definitely a squeeze but we made it!

The parl was surprisingly empty for this time of year, but we heard from several people that July and August the place is packed. It is adjacent an older mobile home park with older homes and my first thought upon hearing that was that it would feel at odds with the outdoorsy atmosphere. We quickly came to the concousion though upon seeing it that they are separate entities, and not at aoo disturbing. It is a unique set up, but it works and you don't lose the feel of camping at all.

There were tent site located on the other side of the park and they had nice wooden privacy fencing for a little bit of coverage for each site. Many sites in the middle of this smaller campground have no shade, but those on either side do.

We loved being here with the kids. There was a small playground with mainly swings and climbing bars, nothing fancy but enough to entertain them a bit. It was a 2 block walk to the town of Ouray which is always fun to explore and an easy 2 block walk to the Hot Springs, which is awesome and has a terrific park and play equipment there.

We saw one camper cabin available which was very small but appeared clean from viewing through the windows and it was also on the river. The smaller park and the welcoming owners creates an environment which encourages easy visiting...we spent one evening yacking with folks a few sites down as well as a morning visiting with the folks in the site next to us. We were able to watch thorugh binoculars as hickers scaled the canyon wall almost righ above our heads, and we took a short hike up to a waterfall a few blocks away.

And the showers/bathrooms, have we talked about those yet??? CLEAN...CLEAN...CLEAN. Spacious free showers with a chair for sitting to change and plenty of warm water. The counters were lengthy and the place looked like no one every used it, it was so clean. Not having to worry about having enough quarters was a real plus.

There are a couple of other options for camping in Ouray, the KOA...which is nice but not within walking distance of town and in a little warmer area plus much more expensive...and the Timber Ridge campground which is on the main road into town and has a nice little restaurant to eat at, but not much else but road noise and parking lot rows of RVs. Restrooms/showers there are not nearly as nice, nor as clean and feel very typically like a campground.

All in all, we have already made plans to stay at 4J again this summer and know it will become a family favorite. While I know some feel it doesn't offer enough for kids to be engaged, there is so much around within close proximity that it negates any negative as far as that is concerned, at least for us it does.

Have fun in Ouray!

The campground is awesome if you want to be close to downtown Ouray. The sites are very small and on top of each other but we would rather be down town. The bathrooms are probably the best I have been to as far as campgrounds. The campground is very clean and the staff is great! We will be back again!

  • Liked — The awesome staff and clean bathrooms!
  • Disliked — The tiny campsites. They were right on top of each other.

Our family stays at this campground every summer for about a week. We love Ouray and this location is perfect. It sits on the Uncompaghre river right in town and is walking distance to everything including the hot springs and main street. Most sites have all utilities available. Some are pull through although we like the ones on the river. Sites are adequate in size although not spacious. There are plenty of trees and shade. The restrooms and showers are always clean and well kept. There is a coin laundry at the corner of the property. The place is very busy during the height of the season so it is best to make a reservation well in advance.
