There just isn't much camping very near the town, unfortunately. I would seriously consider just getting a spot at the KOA just east of town.

Junction Creek is your only other option within 15 minutes of the Park. Other than that, you have to drive up 550 to find legal camping (cold) or halfway up to Pagosa. Lemon Lake / Vallecito is also cold. There's a quiet turnaround just within the Forest Service at the top of Missionary Ridge, but it's not easy to find and it's at 8500 feet.
