Rico is located in the San Juan National Forest. Nearby improved RV/tent camping sites include those at the USFS Cayton Campground, located 7 miles north of Rico.  Dispersed camping is also available along the Dolores River.

Circle K Ranch (10 miles south of Rico) and  Priest Gulch (12 miles to the south offer RV and tent sites as well as cabins. The Green Snow Oasis (7 miles south) also offers guest cabins.
