Amphitheater Campground has some first-come first-serve sights. I may try to grab one. The sites available for reservation are booked. Angel Creek is an option too.

If someone has to cancel at 4J, let me know and I will grab your spot.

Matt, I'd suggest Yankee Boy/Governor's Basin Saturday and Blackbear/Imogene should be fine on Sunday if you're taking the 80 out for the first time.

KOA about 10 minutes North of town is nice. They have tent sites but are requiring a 3 night stay this weekend. Maybe you guys can share a site?

Thanks for the welcome, hope we can make it. Sucks there isnt much preimiative in nat'l parks or blm lands. We can sleep in the rig if necessary. Looks like we may have waited too long to plan though....

Josh, Its just pretty tight everywhere around with the steep canyon walls making space for camping off the roads pretty limited. The KOA really isn't bad, especially in the far back area. We've done that ourselves in the past. The link is in my earlier post. Hope you guys can figure something out.

I'm starting to look at adventuresome options for the drive out Friday and drive home Monday. Stay tuned.... You know what I'm capable of!

I am going to take the risk and try to find a "first come first serve" tent site at the Amphitheater Friday morning. I am going to leave Durango around 8am which should put me in Ouray around 10am. I will post to this thread any remaining available spots. My backup plan is Angel Creek up the road to Yankee Boy. For some reason, I cannot do the KOA after driving past it a few weeks ago. If I was in an RV the KOA would be fine.

Hey everyone,

I'm going to be down in Durango Labor Day weekend and was wondering if i could tag along for Sunday Black Bear run? I doubt any of you remember me, but I've done a couple of Club runs in the past.

On a side note, i just bought a Power Tank and was wondering if anyone know a good place to get it filled in south Denver (Centennial)?

Thanks,
-Thanasi
