While this campground is adjacent to Utah Lake, the water level was so low we could barely see the water. Fortunately each site has a shade over a table on a concrete pad since it is very hot here. Some of the other sites in Loop B have some afternoon shade from trees. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating.

New owners purchased this park recently and they are providing "hands-on management." The setting is beautiful and the large sites are more typical of a state or national park. The laundry room, restrooms, and shower rooms are immaculate. Our only disappointment was that our site #38 was swampy. It appears there are water springs above and in this site. As a result, previous campers had moved the fire ring around to find a dry spot. This resulted in ashes mixed with wet gravel around the site, not a good combination. While these problems were not sufficient to cause us to change sites since we had no kids with us and were gone to during the day, this site should not be used until this wet condition is corrected.

This campground is located across the valley from the Transit Center on Bear Lake Road on the east side of the RMNP. This makes it very convenient to access all park sites and trail heads on the east side using the shuttle service, which stops every half-hour right in the campground. We choose loop C because it still has tree cover. The rangers were so helpful and the evening programs they put on were very well done. The restrooms were immaculate.

This park is still recovering from the flood of 2012 but they have made a lot of progress. While there is a large section of the park for long-term residents, the park is neat and quiet. We had a premium site, which was very long, on the river. The cottonwood trees on the river bank produced a lot of "cotton" but it did not cause any problems for us. It was nice to have a fire ring on the river bank. There is a Verizon hot spot by the recreation area. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. There is a large recreation field and covered area where there are some activities for scheduled on the weekends.

As others have said, this park may not be open too much longer. As long as it is, it is ideally located to access the main entrance to Arches National Park and Moab. Most sites are shaded by big trees, which is nice in the summer. The park is well maintained and quiet even though it is right off the main highway into Moab. It is adjacent to the river and a canal.

We have stayed here overnight several times. While there are many sites are occupied by long-term residents, the park is neat and quiet. The restrooms are clean and everything works; even the wireless and cable TV. The office is often closed by the time we arrive but they post open sites on board. This park is located a few blocks off the highway so it is quiet but easy to access from either direction. Most sites are shaded by big trees, which is important in the summer. We'll be back.

Although this a few miles outside of Durango it took just 15 minutes to get downtown, where we enjoyed the train to Silverton, as well as the bike trails along the river. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the sites are among trees along the creek. Our site backed up to the creek but was a bit tight. The pool was nice and the ice cream social was a hit. The Wi-Fi is only available outside the office on a shaded patio.

This park is just a few minutes outside of Salida and right on the river. While we did not have a river site we were close enough to enjoy the sight and sound of it. This park appears to be family owned and operated and everyone was friendly and helpful. While they are working hard there is a lot more to do to make this a first-rate park. Nevertheless, we enjoyed a quiet stay and the location is great.

While this park was damaged by the flood in 2013 it appears they have repaired most of it. The only facility not yet restored is the on-site mini-golf course but they are planning to do so. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are large enough to enjoy the outdoor space and all have green grass and picnic tables. Some sites are shaded with pines but most are open. We saw elk graze through the park one morning. Our site was near the river that flows around the park, which was especially enjoyable. The fishing pond was the center of activity for many and we saw several folks catching nice-size trout. The swimming pool was heated and sheltered from the wind so it was comfortable even when the wind was blowing. The setting is beautiful yet the park is convenient to downtown Estes Park and well as Rocky Mountain National Park.

This is our second time to stay at this park that is conveniently located to Loveland and Windsor. While it appears there are many folks who call this place home for extended stays, the place is quiet and neat. There is an abundance of shade from the large trees and they have recently renovated the office, one of the laundry rooms, the recreation room and the mini-golf course. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful park with large sites overlooking Lake Pueblo. There is no access to swim in the lake except at a swimming beach, which is several miles away. Each site has a paved pad with a fire ring and sheltered (top and one side) over a table. There is a $7 daily use fee in addition to the camping fee. Many of the sites are pull-through. There is a paved bike path throughout the park, which has several other campgrounds.

Date of Stay:

Nice place for an overnight. Far enough off of I-40 for a quiet night but close enough to be convenient. Generous pull-through sites. Nice swimming pool area and a mini-golf course provide a welcome break after a day on the road.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful park with lots of shade and easy access to Oak Creek just behind the park. Green grass and concrete pads for each site on gravel drives. Friendly and helpful staff who obviously take pride in their work. Library of books and DVDs to trade or borrow in the office. Just a short walk to Tlaquepaque and a 5 minute drive to uptown Sedona.

Date of Stay:

Large sites with shade from pine trees, tables, and fire rings. Very quiet campground with easy access to all the sites on the South Rim. There is a shuttle bus stop at the entrance to the campground and there are two links to paved bike paths to IMAX and most rim destinations. Shuttle buses have bike racks to make one-way trips possible. Water is available throughout the campground as well as at the free dump station near the entrance.

The primary appeal of this park is location. It is a very convenient location for seeing Santa Fe since the city bus stops right outside (senior day passes $1) and it is just a few miles from downtown. We were in site 12, which is the nicest in the park. It is screened with green hedges and has grass lawn the concrete pad. Staff is very helpful as they guide you into your spot.
