Abstract Background

Rio Grande National Forest


Palisade Campground

We strive diligently to keep our facilities disinfected, but cannot guarantee they are 100% free of coronavirus. Please bring your own hand sanitizer, and if you are feeling ill, help protect other campers and our employees by staying home.

Palisade Campground consists of twelve sites, most of them in one large loop with a couple sites separated from the loop.  The site sits on the edge of the Rio Grande River among cottonwoods and a few aspen and pine. A railroad traverses the campground with some use by individual rail cars traveling through periodically during the summer.  The elevation is 8,300 ft.
