Cool Best Campground Location for FJ Cruiser Summit in Ouray

I've got a rooftop tent on my FJ and I'm wanting to go to the FJ Cruiser Summit in Ouray this year. Since I'll be pitching my tent each night after activities instead of being able to setup camp and leave it, I'd really like to figure out which campground is located closest to where the activities are for the Summit. Does anyone know where activities and vendors/etc are located during the event? Have a recommendation of which campground to choose (or even if there's just one you would avoid)?

Thanks in advance for your help! Keeping my fingers crossed I get my tickets tomorrow

The KOA just outside of town works out great. They have showers and it is only a few minutes from downtown.

Ampitheater campground is pretty close to the Twin Peaks Lodge/Summit Headquarters, on the edge of town. I'm staying at the Lodge - hit me up if you want to get in to their thermal pools Hope to see you there! - Deb

Do they get packed there? Is it typical for a line for bathrooms especially in the evening and the morning before events?

Not usually a problem. I was doing mostly morning runs so was up and out early.

I usually dislike developed campgrounds but the KOA in Ouray was great.

There are a few in the area besides the KOA. If you turn right just before the amphitheater camp ground it takes you up a short 4x4 trail to another set of great campsites.

Thanks. I've been looking into them granted I make the registration cut in the next three minutes. Lol. Wifey is coming along so she will need wi-fi and the likes.
