Looking to reconnect with the beautiful Rockies after a very long absence, so want to get recommendations for the most beautiful campgrounds we can find.
A little background - we love nature and getting away from humans. We don't dig noisy or crowded spots tho we are willing to accept the realities of summer travelling.
Will be driving from Golden to Mesa Verde Natl Park second week of August. SO can head west on 70 then south, or take 285 south. Open to suggestions, however, for the most scenery we can squeeze in. Will have 3 nights to camp, and staying 2 nights in one place is always kinda nice. I visited Ouray when I was a kid so I'd like to camp there if the Amphitheater Campground (Natl Forest) is recommended.
Sure would appreciate some suggestions from folks that know and love the area!
