Colorado’s Glampground Getaway, Basecamp 550 Is Truly One-Of-A-Kind
Colorado is known near and far for its amazing camping opportunities, but did you know that the Centennial State pulls out all the stops when it comes to glamping as well? Defined as “glamorous camping” (get it?), there are countless glampgrounds to choose from here in Colorado, including the one-of-a-kind Basecamp 550:
Located a mere 2 miles south of Ridgway, Basecamp 550 is the place to be for not only fun and comfortable accommodations but jaw-dropping views as well.
Billed as being THE place for the "modern gypsy, weekend jetsetter or outdoor adventure seeker looking for a comfortable and convenient place to enjoy the San Juan Mountains," there is something for everyone at Basecamp 550, beginning with the unique accommodations.
Like all great campgrounds, Basecamp 550 offers a spacious RV site but also boasts tiny houses and glamping tents for rent.
As the name implies, glamping tents are unlike regular tents where you sleep on the ground as they include a queen pillow-top bed plus a mini-fridge and microwave and a small fireplace heater.
In terms of their tiny homes, guests can also expect a comfortable pillow-top bed as well as a full kitchen and private bathroom.
In addition to a comfortable place to sleep, Basecamp 550 also boasts such amenities as Wifi, a clubhouse, gas grills and an outdoor garden sink, and more.
What is a Colorado glampground without a little adventure? Basecamp 550 has that, too, thanks to its San Juan Mountain location and its close proximity to incredible trails, skiing, and the Orvis Hot Springs (pictured).
