If you enter the Park from the south, it is quite a long, but beautiful, drive to the campground. Some steep hills but all good paved roads. We stayed in the electric only area on a Friday night. All sites were full but we didn't feel crowded. Good showers not far away and nice walking trails down to and along the lake.

Date of Stay:

This is and ATV park but also has biking and hiking trails as well as a lake/water trail. It was very quiet while we were there, perhaps due to the rainy weather. Park is about 10 miles north of Columbia on 63. Not hard to find but it doesn't jump out at you either. Campground is a couple of miles from the check-in so you have to drive in to find a spot and then drive back to register. Nice shower house and paved, mostly level sites. I would avoid the place in midsummer but it has several attractions that others no doubt value.

Very nice but not spacious campground. Canyon is narrow at this point so the road is close. Only the loops on the west side of the road were open. Campground is run by a concessionaire (Recreation Resource Management), they seem to have split the campground between reservable (south) and non-reservable (north) and if you don't have a reservation they do not offer any of the reservable sites, some of the best, even if they are available. Short, steep trail starts on the east side of the road, otherwise everything is a drive.

Previous reviewer is right, this is not a place for big 5th wheels or Class A's, but our 22 ft Class A Winnebago had room to spare (why did the quit making these little jewels?). We were in site #30 looking out over the river. Price was discounted from $20 due to drought water restrictions. Nice hiking along the river and up to the lake. Though it is within the Eldorado National Forest, this campground is operated by the Eldorado Irrigation District so they do not honor Federal passes.

We stayed here on a Saturday and there was an equestrian event in progress. Several horse trailers and RVs in the campground but it was not crowded. Ground is a bit uneven and has some soft spots but there are numerous old cottonwoods to provide good shade. We arrived early and watched part of the competition. Nice to see such a well used and maintained facility. Note that the park does not take out of state checks. The dump station requires payment by credit card but it was not locked the day we were there. Significant road noise even on the weekend, but it was pretty quiet during the night.

Stopped at the very nice visitor center on the east side of Duchesne and the docent recommended site #12 at the Beach campground. She was right, nice shade and right on the lake. Not sure when I've spend a more pleasant afternoon. Lake was swimable but a bit cold in June. Some of the sites slope down toward the lake but we were able to get leveled up easily. There are rental boats and jetskies available at the launch ramp.

Sites are close together but trees provide some privacy. This is a lovely place situated alongside an airport that caters to gliders. If you are lucky you can watch the glider activity or even take a ride.

Date of Stay:

Definitely rustic and not well suited to anything much over 30 ft. Electric only and the outlets are at the backs of the sites. Nice to be close to the river but the cabins occupy most of the river front. Dump station is on the wrong side and it is not easy to turn around within the campground. All that said, the setting is beautiful and the folks are friendly. The store's stock is not extensive by you won't starve if you get here with no food. The drive from here up to Foxpark and on to Steamboat Springs is lovely, but that's another story.

We just stayed for an overnight so can't say anything about the lake or golf course. The campground was very nice and not too muddy even after a heavy rain.

Very nice quiet park not a long way from the Interstate. The campground itself is a ways from the lake facilities so you have to drive a ways to get there. It is a bit difficult to find and though I'd been here before it seemed like I must have gotten off the track before we got to the campground. There were only a few other sites occupied while we were there but lots of birds to watch and deer that came through in the evening. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

This campground (Loop B) is quite a ways, about 7 miles, from the highway but is worth the trip. No stores in the area so best to stock up in Chandler. Quiet with good utilities but the sites slope down to the road quite a bit. Electric worked fine but the sit we picked only had a 50 amp and 15 amp plug. Did not have a 50-30 adapter so got by with 15 amp. There is a swimming area and launch ramp not far from the campground.

Basic overnight park. Easy access but away from the highway a bit. Still quite a bit of road noise but there was a strong wind from that direction. Electrics have been redone. A few long term units but lots of space for transients. Store seems to be closed so the office is the owner's kitchen. Nice folks.

Date of Stay:

Looking for privacy we picked the Cottonwood campground. There were only a few other sites occupied. Nice breeze and lots of shade from the mature cottonwoods. Great variety of birds including scissortail flycatcher, kingbirds and cedar waxwings. Utilities look to have been recently upgraded and the sites leveled and graveled. We were headed east on I40 and stopped at the OK visitor's center. When we inquired about the park the host gave us a $5.00 token to use at the campground.

Date of Stay:

Good stop to get the laundry done. There are several nice trails beginning at the back of the campground. Could use a bit of maintenance but lots of shade and pleasant folks. I do wish they would upgrade the dump station. It is right in the middle of the exit and the flush water was locked up.

Date of Stay:

Facilities worked fine. Not much shade and close spacing but nothing unusual. Friendly, helpful folks.
