This was our first stop on our first lengthy camping trip. We got spoiled. I had originally reserved a spot in the Cottonwood loop, because I thought it would be nice to be on the water. Despite the fact that I made the reservation on the first day reservations were open, we arrived to find out our spot had accidentally been given to someone else. The ranger said he could move that person to a different spot, but he suggested we might want to go up the hill to the Lakeview loop instead. He was right; Lakeview was much nicer, in our opinion. Full hookups were great. Sites are paved and very level. Restrooms/showers were very nice. We also didn't miss being on the water, because the lake was so low that being on the water was not particularly attractive. Great campground and not too far to do things in Glenwood Springs. *Notes: The fee I cited does not include the $10 reservation fee.

We were here early in the year when only one loop was open. Park is beautiful but the campsites were not so great. Had to try three sites before I found one with working electric. Sites are also close together and not that level.

Took our first ever camping trip to Johnson Sauk Trail Park for Columbus Day weekend. It must be a good place because it was over half full, even though the weather was very cold and overcast. Site was nice and roomy, and pretty level. I used leveling jacks, but it would have been tolerable without. Lots of nice trails for the kids to explore. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The only drawback was no hot water. Great getaway 20 miles from home. Our site had plenty of room for our 37' MH. Some of the sites would not. About half the sites may be reserved. Rate posted is basic rate. We paid extra $5 fee to reserve online.
