About Bob Nelson

Currently we have a Arctic Fox Camper on a 2015 GMC 3500 DRW. Retired old people, but only old in age. Travel with a service dog (golden doodle). Often we have a 16' cargo trailer behind us with a Chev Tracker in it, so we look for long sites..

This park should be held as a positive example to all other parks... Clean, paved lots with very green grass, tables, power, water, dump, level, and incredible staff/host. Nice warm swimming pool, enclosed dog area, rec room, plus, plus, plus.. Escorted to our site. This is our third stay here.... we will be back. Talked to a friendly neighbor and identified our next RV....

Date of Stay:

Nice park, but sewer was too far from power, so we could not use... Trains and hwy noise, but not bad.... We did not use other services... Left early next morning. Picnic table had been taken to the long term site next to us... so not available..

Date of Stay:

Nice park, but check the schedule.... As we were leaving, hundreds of bicycle folks were arriving for the 18 hours of Fruita.... Major mountain bike race... This was our second stay at a CO state park... at least this time we were not charged for a day pass on the towed.

Date of Stay:

Nice state park.... a little disappointed in the pricing... 20 for the park was a good price, but 7 for a day pass, and then another 7 for a day pass on towed vehicle was a bit much... Dump station at exit.

Date of Stay:

Made us feel welcome. Nice people. Site was level, and it appeared that all of them were... Dog walk area, but a few of the people did not always clean up. Shared picnic table and lawn area..

Date of Stay:

Got the last site.... This is really for longer term stay folks.... I think we just got here as someone left.... They made special arrangements for us in the form of early morning snow... probably 6-8". nice extra feature .... We did not have access to restroom, showers, or the rec room.... no accommodation for folks arrive after the office closes...

Date of Stay:

Nice campground, but very few level sites... This could easily be changed, but the managers fail to see that. Fire pit was clean, table nearby. Dump Station at Main Campground. Stayed one night.. Light snow several times.

Date of Stay:

Get in Early.... fills fast after about 11am. Good site, stayed two nights... Quiet both nights.. We did not make reservations... Camp host were very nice.

Date of Stay:

Terrible camp, but close to East Entrance to Zion. Worth it?? Questionable. several camps near Mt Carmel Junction that might be a better option. Dump outlet was about 8" above ground which made if difficult to use. Good wifi at the great laundry, lounge and hot showers. Probably the only redeeming factor. A little effort by the owners could make this a really nice park. Pull through sites on the upper end were 59.00.

Nice park, friendly people, nicest enclosed dog park we have ever found... An area for both large and small dogs. We stayed two nights for some sight seeing stuff. We would stay again. I think our site was designed for two rigs traveling together... if trailers, then both doors would open to each other and no room for awnings. 10 mph speed limit, but few observed it, especially staff. There appeared to be no effort to water grass... April and very, very dry..

Date of Stay:

Get in early; first come, first serve. This was our first stay here, and picked a no hook up site. Self contained really is an asset. $47 is a bit steep for an electric site, on poorly maintained roads, and small dirty campsites. Lots of trash around. Dump station if needed. We left it better than we found it. Probably will avoid this site in future trips.

Date of Stay:

Lots of improvements in the past few years.... Fairly clean, and an incredibly noisy gen set that ran all day.... A lot of people applauded when they shut it down at 8pm... Elk in camp, and a very large bull bison... nights were quiet. This was not our first visit to Yellowstone, and hope to be back again...

Date of Stay:

This truly a five star park. This was our first visit, but not our last. Very accommodating. off leash dog area that was fenced in. Facilities were all very clean. Showers were clean and all users had a clean floor mat to use. Quiet and away from highway noise.

Date of Stay:

Fort Stevens is a favorite. Normally we come here in the shoulder season, or off season to avoid the crowds. It was still nice, noisy, but nice. Only 4 loops have sewer. 3 lane dump station at the entrance/exit.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground next to the Grande Ronde River on FS rd 51. 6.2 miles from state 244. This could be an excellent campground if the USFS would maintain it even a little.. Brush is overgrown and several sites really are not usable.. Shame on USFS for letting the site go down hill. There is one very large pull through site. The rest are back-in.
