It is a wonderful town! I love it to pieces! They have a campground but it may be tents only, I am not sure. The culture of the town is very open and gay friendly.

There is a town campground that has a small handful of sites that will fit a 25' trailer. First come first serve. The town also has weird dips in the road and tight streets. Beautiful though.

It is wonderful there. They are friendly to everyone. Some campgrounds south that can handle your trailer and only 10 to 15 miles out of town. Might want a campground because it can get really noisy in town. Spent the summer there several years ago.

I hope this day to have the opportunity to help someone in need.

We took a trip there this fall. It is a great place to stay. The area is gorgeous!
Here is a link to the adventure that we had:

Telluride's Town Park for Camping

Telluride does have a beautiful little campground at the end of town with about 35 spots. "Telluride Town Park". There are only a handful that will fit an RV, and manuevering around the campground can be challenging. We have a 28' ft Airstream that we can just get through there. However, there are a few larger spots closer to the entrance that can accommodate a bigger rig. Call Telluride Parks and Rec to get information at (970) 728-2173. The park is strictly first come first serve with a max of 7 days and is around $35/night.

Check the festival schedule before you try to go, because the town turns over the entire campground to Bluegrass in June and Blues and Brews in September every year and you cannot get in unless you have purchased a camping and vehicle pass from the festival.

No hooks up, but there are showers.

Once you do get in, you are going to enjoy this beautiful little laid back town. You can walk out of the secluded campground to hike, bike, dine, visit shops, and enjoy all of it without ever getting in your car. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous.

And the town is friendly to anyone who visits, it doesn't matter if you are gay, straight or blue or a dog. You will feel welcome here.

I love Telluride, but not as the home base. Unless you don't want to leave it's too remote for my taste. I always stayed south of Montrose, and then did day trips to Telluride, Ouray, Silverton, Ridgway, Owl Creek pass (where they filmed "True Grit"), Black Canyon etc.
I never thought of Telluride as being gay friendly, but I guess that's why it is great, nobody notices.
There is a sign on the way in (or was) that says something like "Welcome to Telluride, a constitutionally friendly town." I took it to mean you could smoke pot anywhere. Maybe I was wrong.

We actually had the good fortune of getting a site their last July. It’s tricky to get a reservation as they usually sell out for the entire season in a day or two of opening the reservation window. We only booked five nights which was a mistake because there is so much to explore there! We tried to extend our stay but there was no way to do it at that point. There are no hook ups so be fully prepared for boondocking. We have a 28 foot airstream and we fit in our spot fine. Telluride is a very special town...not glitzy like Aspen, not full of it like Park City. I adore Tride!

We camped in Ouray and spent some time in Telluride last month. Beautiful place! We enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, and a trip to a ghost town (Animas Forks).
