The Colorado State Parks, are unbelievably wonderful. Large sites and clean, I have yet to stay at one that I did not enjoy! We stayed in Loop G of the Pa Co Chu Puk area. There really isn't a bad site in the place, but the sites furthest from Hwy 550 are quietest, although the road was quiet at night. Great fishing, deer in the campground, perfect fall weather. The reservoir was low, but he river offered excellent trout fishing. Our Verizon signal was weak but worked. The signal is very strong in the Dutch Charlie Campground which is closer to the reservoir, but further from the Uncompahgre River.

The positive aspects of this campground are that the staff is helpful and friendly, it is on the San Juan River, and convenient to Pagosa Springs. The campground has an assortment of tent sites intermixed with the RV sites, and the layout is strange and the sites are poorly defined. That being said, the prime sites are on the river, although they are very close together. It was quiet and they have a nice little lake with a path around it. Our Verizon service was a little weak but we did have a signal.

This KOA is right off of Hwy 160, but sits back far enough off of the road that noise is not a factor. It is basically a big gravel parking lot and the sites are close together. The staff was friendly and helpful and tried to provide some separation as the campground was not full. There is a great large dog park within walking distance, and a lake with a walking trail. Our Verizon service worked well at this site.

This park is very convenient to the National Park. The sites are close, and the best sites are in the K row, or the sites at the end of each row. They offer more space. We had elk and deer in the campground every day and the elk were vocal and actively in the rut. The hookups and cable worked and we had a decent Verizon signal.

We camped here in a riverside site. The owners and staff are friendly and try to be very accommodating. Although there is no sewer hookup there is a service offered for dumping the tanks and there is a dump station. This campground is only about 10 minutes to Carbondale which is a charming town with a grocery store and good restaurants. The Verizon signal here was weak and we could not get local TV stations or a satellite signal. The sites are small and close together. The road is noisy but quiets down at night. I think that this is a works in progress as they have a potential gem of a campground if they make a few small changes.

This is a clean and quiet campground about 8 miles north of I-80 between Des Moines and Council Bluffs. We got a "walk in" full hookup site. It is a nice alternative to the noisy I-80 RV places. It had a strong Verizon signal and we got about 15 local TV stations. We would definitely stop here again.

This campground is across the road from the Taylor River. The road, although busy during the day, is quiet at night. Most of the sites have large trees around them, so satellite access is poor. Verizon worked well here. They have improved this campground over the years and the camp hosts keep it immaculate. The sites have a lot of space between them so, one has a fair amount of privacy. The dump site is down a dirt road about 15 miles up the canyon. It is not very well designed, and they charge $5.00. The dirt road is a very rough 4 mile drive. Next time we would just drive back to Gunnison or over the pass to Buena Vista to dump at a private campground. This is a beautiful area to hike, fish, and enjoy the outdoors.

This is a very well maintained park. The sites backing the green space are certainly the premium sites. Verizon worked very well here. It is quiet and has large sites making backing in easy. They have a fenced in dog run which is quite large and grassy with toys and water! It is a short drive to downtown Gunnison, and a 3 block walk to a beautiful walking path along the Gunnison River. It is in a very quiet residential area.

This is a state park on a beautiful reservoir, however, unless you have a site on the outside of the loops, you have very close neighbors. There is very little grass and no trees, just mostly dirt. The sites are not very level. When we camped here, the campground was full, with lots of kids and dogs. There is a weak Verizon signal and no available channels via the antenna. It is a remote area, without grocery stores or reasonable fuel. That said, it is a fishing/boating paradise with the "dream stream" just a short drive away. It would be a wonderful place in the off season.

This a small park in Lake City. It is in town, but is very quiet. The owners are friendly and helpful and keep the campground clean. The sites are close together, however, most of the people stay for the summer and are very considerate. The Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We had a good signal on Verizon. It is a beautiful area and a charming town. Stock up on groceries before you come. It is expensive to buy supplies. One can walk to the town, grocery store and to Hensen Creek which is more like a river for exceptional fishing.

This is a large and busy campground. It is quite close to I-80 and you can hear the highway from the Creekside Campground. Our site was very muddy, unfortunately right where our steps lowered. Cell-phone service was good. We camped here during a big thunderstorm outbreak, so can't really comment of the condition of the park.

This is a beautiful state park, however, be aware that most of the sites are very difficult to back into if you have a large rig. Our rig is 30 ft long and it was a challenge. If you have a rig larger than this the only sites you could get into would be 29 , 30, and 2. Only the inside sites have electric. Except for sites 29,30,31,32,1 and 2, it is heavy wooded and DARK. And when it rains, which it frequent does in Wisconsin, it stays wet. There is no hope of getting a satellite signal except on the few upper sites previously mentioned. Cellphone signal is weak at best. But, there are lots of nice trails to hike, and wildlife around. It is about 5 miles from the freeway and near a small town with a Wal-Mart.

This is a small family owned campground positioned on a 100+ acre farm. It is clean and well maintained. Although the spaces between sites is small, it has a beautiful little swimming lake and has lots of open space around it. It is set back from the road by a long lane. It is busy on the weekends with family campers, but during the week is very tranquil. The manager is very accommodating and helpful. Woodstock is a very quaint small town (the movie Ground Hog Days was filmed there) with a large Wal-Mart, and a town square. There was good Wi-Fi and we got an excellent Verizon signal on our cellphone. There is an small charge for Wi-Fi and electricity if you are on the weekly rate.

This is a beautiful campground. All the sites are large and concrete with plenty of space between sites. The rangers are helpful and friendly and the campground is exceptionally clean. We were able to get Verizon service. We choose a site on the higher end of the campground so that we could set up our satellite. Many of the sites are in the trees. There are three campground loops. We stayed in the only open loop..Red Head in site 16. There are many double sites in all four of the loops. Ruddy Duck loop and Cinnamon Teal are more open with fewer trees. Mallard Loop is very forested.

This campground is convenient to I-25 and the owners are helpful and friendly. We were able to get Verizon service and many local TV stations via the antenna. The Wi-Fi was marginal. The sites are gravel and not particularly roomy. The dump station is not in a level area so getting ones tanks completely emptied is not possible. So, it is important to reserve a full hookup site. When we were there the sites were rather muddy.
