San Juan National Forest is one defined by a rich history and unkempt but beautiful wilderness to hike in. It comes alive in the fall, but can be enjoyed at any time of year, which is why it’s best to stay in a unique camping option whilst you’re here, so that you can enjoy all that nature has to offer with a touch of something special. Don’t forget to bring your pet along, too, so they can experience it with you. Find a large range of outdoor activities at Purgatory Resort, where you can have fun in the midst of mountain views. See some of the park’s historical ties at Chimney Rock National Monument, where an archaeological site is a gateway into the past, and try snowboarding at Silverton Mountain.
