With stunning views of the surrounding mountains and access to outdoor recreational activities like fishing, boating, and hiking, Transfer Group Campground is a pawpular destination. The group site at Transfer Campground can house up to 50 people. There are picnic tables, a grill, pit toilets, potable water, and a fire ring here for your convenience. Although the family sites in the area are first-come-first-served, the larger facility requires advanced reservations. You'll find space for tents and smaller RVs here, but there are no electrical hookups.
Set up your quarters in the campground before you start exploring. The facility is in an aspen grove near the Mancos River. You'll find several interconnecting trails in the area to trek with your favorite hound-dog hiker. Big Al Trail is a half-mile out-and-back path that leads to an observation deck over West Mancos Canyon. Relax on a bench along the way to view the wildflowers and watch for critters like elk, deer, and wild turkey.
Another route that starts nearby is the West Mancos Trail. Descend into the canyon, then follow the river upstream for about five miles. Some parts are steep and rocky. Look for Hesperus Peak as you travel through the mixed forest. Avid anglers can visit Jackson Gulch Reservoir. This recreational area is about six miles south of here and is known for its trout and perch fishing.
Forest Service regulations require that you restrain your furry pal if you bring them along. Keep Fido on a leash whether you're hiking or relaxing by your tent. Remember to scoop their poop and throw it away.
This facility sits at an 8,500-foot elevation in southwestern Colorado and offers refreshing temperatures in the summertime. If you like the sound of sleeping under the aspen and waking up to birds singing in the trees, Transfer Group Campground is the pawfect vacation destination for you and your canine camper!
