Had reservations for 6 nights. We stayed on Buffalo Grove Loop which has water and electric. Sites are fairly level, pull-through or back-in and are large. There are other loops that are dry camping or electric only. Campground is quiet with nice views of the lake. There is no wifi but Verizon was good. A dump station is available. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with maps and things to do in the area. Even the park rangers are friendly; we watched them help a camper put his tent camper up in the rain. We would stay here again.

Season is winding down so the campground was quiet. Owners are very friendly and helpful. This is not a big campground so a big rig can be difficult to maneuver into a spot. The campground is in a good location, it is possible to walk to town. The community fire pit and free coffee are a nice touch. The laundry room, showers and bathrooms were very clean. The wifi was slow and there is no cable tv, no campstore. There are no camping discounts so with tax, we thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. But we would stay here again.

Nightly rate does not include daily use fee of $7. We ended up buying the annual state park pass for $70. We camped in Dakota Terrace above the reservoir. Elk Ridge area is higher up on the hill. Our site was a fairly level, pull through with 30amp. Some sites are back-in and some have covered picnic tables. There are plenty of water spigots; they allowed us to fill our tanks. A dump station is available. The campground hosts were friendly and helpful and sell firewood $5 and ice$2 There is a laundromat in the park. The visitor center is nice with lots of info about hiking/biking trails in the park and things to do in the area. This park is a good base for Ouray, Ridgway, Telluride and Montrose. We would camp here again.

We had a reservation and dry camped for 5 nights. We probably didn't need a reservation as there were many open sites. We were told to pick a site and since we are a big rig, the office staff advised us on several areas where we would fit. We drove around several times and finally found a level site where we would fit. Most of the sites fit campers 30ft or less easily. I agree that $30 does seem a bit high for dry camping but the campground is in the closest location for reaching the cliff dwellings all of which you have to drive to on the winding road with spectacular views. There is a campstore, cafe, free showers, gas station, laundromat, and dump station at the campground. Ranger programs were done nightly. Generators are allowed 6am-10pm. We enjoyed the sunsets and the deer. Would camp here again.

We camped here for 4 days. You need a reservation which was easy to do by phone and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are 6 sites with water and electric (30amp), no sewer. You need to have an extra long water hose as water is shared. The sites are in a gravel area, all back-in, fairly level. There are no facilities, no bathrooms or showers, no dump station. The area is right near the facilities dept which maintains the fairgrounds and they work all hours so it can be a bit noisy. The Durango community recreation center is next to the fairgrounds, we were told you could use these facilities (gym, showers) for a daily fee. The fairgrounds is about a mile or two from historic downtown Durango. You can ride the trolley ($1 per ride) into town as the stop is across the street from the fairgrounds or you can walk on the Animas River trail which is behind the fairgrounds and easy. We felt like this was a bargain compared to the private campgrounds in the area, and a lot closer to town. We would definitely stay here again.

Located east of town, tight turn into the park but it is well marked with a sign. If you are going east (left turn)when you leave, it can be difficult to pull out due to traffic. Just take your time. Check in was fine, staff gave us good information about restaurants and places to visit. We had a level pull through, full hookups that were easy to access. The laundry consisted of one washer and one dryer but were clean. This is a basic park in a good location. Not many amenities but wifi worked well. Cable tv is available but you need a coupler which the office has available for $2 deposit. Some road noise, but not too bad. Would stay here again.

Stayed here two nights. Loop A is for tents, Loop B has RV sites, about 3 can fit very big rigs. Sites are fairly level, some near the San Juan River, some near the petroglyphs. There are no hook-ups but there is a water spigot and pit toilets. There is a boat launch area for accsess to the river. The mosquitoes can get bad, especially closer to the river so make sure you have bug spray. We found it quiet and we used it as a base to explore Bluff, Monument Valley, Hovenweep and Goosenecks. The closest grocery store is 30 minutes away in Blanding, UT but there is a small convenience store in Bluff.

The road to this park is paved and easily driven. Entrance is $5 if you just want to see the view or camping fee is $10/night. The gate attendant was there until 6:30pm and returned the next morning at 7:30ish. There are about 8 sites with fire rings and picnic tables, but you can drive further on a a rocky unpaved road to other undeveloped sites. This is dry camping, no water spigot and a vault toilet which smelled when you got close to it. The view of the canyon is spectacular especially when you are camped a few feet away. You can hike along the edge, but not much else to do. It did get a bit windy (tents might be difficult) and there is no shade. At sunset, the canyon colors change, at night the stars are magnificent. We camped here for one night and are glad we did.

You can book this BLM campsite online, just be aware there is a $9 booking fee. There were plenty of sites available so we probably could have just driven in without a reservation. The campground has two loops and is big rig friendly with several pull through sites. There are no hook-ups but there are water spigots in each loop to fill up containers (not to fill your RV tank). The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful with things to do in the area. Even though the campground is near the highway, it was very quiet. Vault toilets were clean. There is even a short nature hike and nearby jeep trails. The town of Blanding is nearby. We enjoyed our stay here.

Agree with other reviews, nice owners, nice park. There were plenty of level, big sites available as this is less crowded season due to heat. Close enough to town and recreation. Wifi worked well, cable was free. Small campstore selling essentials. Laundry available. No pool. Would stay here again.

This is a BLM campground with dry camping and pit toilets, managed by campground hosts who were friendly. There is no dump station. We arrived around 1pm and were able to get the last site on the river side. Sites on the other side sit next to a bike trail and Hwy 128. The sites are spacious, some with shade especially when the sun goes behind the cliffs next to the river. While it got hot during the day, the breezes pick up in the late afternoon. You can also run your generator 8am-8pm. Solar panels do fine too. This is the closest BLM campground to Moab and Arches NP so we heard it fills up first. It is also big rig friendly, but we noticed many of the sites fill up with tents. There are no hiking trails near the campground but the bike trail goes to Arches and north along the river. We heard some boat tours on the river, but were not bothersome. Verizon access was slow, if you need wifi you can find several places in town. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.

Right off I 70. Check in was great as desk staff was very thorough about amenities, rules, etc. She even told us that the water pressure is high and let us borrow a pressure regulator. We had a spacious level, full hookup, pull-thru site. Roads are wide enough for big rigs. Cable tv is included, wifi did not work well. Pool and hot tub are available, lounge area has comfy couches and tv. Camp store is small, has some supplies and snacks. Nice playground and dog run. There are even tepees you can camp in! Road noise was tolerable. Would stay here again.

Small campground right off I-70, so there is road noise. Sites are electric and water, no sewer. Area is manned by two campground hosts. Dump station costs $23. Not really big rig friendly as there are only a few pull thrus, mostly back-ins. Some trees close to the turns. Our site was fairly level. Bathrooms were clean, showers 25 cents per 2 minutes. This is a no frills campground, but there is a hiking trail and it is a great base to go do things in Golden, Denver, Idaho Springs. The historic Chief Hosa Lodge is right next door but is used as a rental facility.

Stayed for a week, not a resort campground but good for what it is. Sites are back-in, gravel, level with good hook-ups. The roads are wide enough to navigate. There are some long term residents, but we noticed plenty of folks just stopping overnight too. There is a bit of road noise and an occasional train. The wifi worked ok, no cable, the pool was clean. There is no campstore, but there is a small area in the office with a tv and table where you can sit and a small laundry room off from the office. The office was not well attended but there is a posted number you can call that was answered right away. There is a good BBQ restaurant right on site where campers can get 10% off meals. Grocery store is not too far in Cahokia. The campground is convenient to downtown St Louis. If you don't want to drive into the city you can drive about 2mi to East Riverfront metro station near Queen Casino, park for free and get a day ticket or round trip ticket. We did this and did not feel like it was unsafe. In fact no one even checks if you bought a ticket. We thought this campground was fine for our needs.

Agree with others, good for a few nights stay or if you want to visit nearby distilleries or Louisville. The office is only staffed in the afternoon, so if you try to call as we did you may get an answering machine. Someone eventually called back. We were told that if we arrived when no one is in the office to just pick a site in the front, which is what we did. The sites are nice and level, big rig friendly, pull-thru and gravel. They are pretty close together and there is no picnic table but we had full hook-ups. The wifi worked ok. There is no pool, dog run, or store. Laundry is $2.50/washer. Nearby is a big weekend flea market, grocery. Met our needs.
