I was somewhat disappointed in this CG. I was impressed when I pulled in but then ... Wi-fi was down. My site was a pull-thru cement pad, but a bit steep before it leveled off. The concrete was covered in dried mud from a storm the week before with a lot of ants. I washed the mud from the area around my trailer so that I wasn't tracking the red dirt into my rig. They trimmed the grass on the second day of my stay but no one bothered to clean up the remaining dirt. I hooked up to their cable but the signal was fuzzy. Over the air stations were much better and they were all in HD. One expects more when paying premium prices for a site, but this place doesn't deliver. Laundry was inexpensive at $1.50 wash and the same to dry.

The best place to camp while visiting the Great Sand Dunes! However, the campground is your average NPS Campground with dry camping and poor camp site maintenance. Arrived at the end of a heavy thunderstorm and there was mud flowing everywhere. The campsite fire pit had trash in it; broken glass, metal lids etc. The picnic table was in the trailer parking area which I didn't feel like moving in the rain. That made parking a bit trickier than it may have been. The site was unlevel in all axes, especially front to back. Fresh water is available at the dump station unless you need to connect a hose to your rig then you need to fill up by one of the restrooms, if they are working. Reservations (loop 2) are recommended during June, July and August since the campground fills up every night.

First off I missed the turn into the campground as it is poorly marked after you make the turn off the main road. Roads are dirt. The patio at my site was covered with mud that had run down from the site behind and above mine. Had to share the water faucet with a neighbor. However, some sites have new gravel. As with most things: Estes Park in the summer the CG is expensive.

Nice KOA on the outskirts of Ft. Collins. A lot of activities for kids plus the pizza. Back-in sites are parked toe to toe with little space behind you. Dust was an issue when people sped thru the CG. Very family friendly. I would skip this place on a return trip.

I ended up here for 2 nights because of a screwed up reservation at another campground. Very expensive campground with little to offer. Road noise is present most of the time. Wifi was okay but dropped quite a few times. My Verizon signal was poor. The electricity voltage was low: dropped as low as 107 but never got higher then 112. Over the air TV stations came in fine during the day but half dropped out at night. (They no longer have cable.) There are mostly permanents and seasonal campers here. Maintenance appears to be nonexistent as there was leaves from last year blowing around ,as well as twigs and small branches from the trees.

Another beautiful Colorado State Park. Park is an easy drive from Rifle. Wi-Fi access ends about a quarter mile from the Rifle Gap dam. Pick your site carefully if you want a lake view from your site. The road to the CGs are narrow but the road within the CGs are wide. Sites are well maintained and clean. All utilities worked fine.

RV parking lot in the middle of an industrial area. CG is just off of I-70 and near truck stops. Fed Ex distribution center across the street. Hosts were helpful and friendly. Sites were level. All utilities worked fine.

Price does not include park access fee of $7 per day. I stayed here for a week and had to move a few times due to unavailability of a site for the entire stay. Sites are roomy and some are situated so that you have a feeling of privacy. Sites were fairly level. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful. There is some noise from 550 but it quiets down at night. Cell phone coverage is poor but it works. My Jetpack worked occasionally. Satellite reception was okay but receiving HD was iffy.

Nice clean park near downtown Cortez. Close enough to walk to stores and restaurants. One side of the campground abuts a machinery rental business. It gets rather noisy when they are moving the bulldozers and other machinery around or they are power washing the equipment.

Nice campground in a beautiful setting. Getting there is another story. The road into the park is very rough. It is mostly dirt with some gravel in places and feels like you are driving on a washboard. Anything in your rig will bounce around and anything that is not secured properly will be on the floor. Rating was based on the campground and the drive in.

Easy access to I25 and Santa Fe. Roads are gravel and dust is kicked up by speeders and Class A's with downward facing exhaust. Wind is pretty constant on the ridge. My site had a juniper tree next to it so I had shade on one side and it added privacy from my neighbors. Very quiet and dark at night. Laundry room was clean and moderately priced.

This RV park is centrally located. There is a section of permanent mobile homes surrounding the office. The RV section is 50% occupied by long term residents, some have been there for years. Management does not enforce their rules. My neighbor had an old car with visible damage and no license plate in their space. Some people allow their dogs to run around without a leash. Pull thru sites are positioned head-to-toe with little space between your neighbor. Wi-fi gets overloaded due to number of users. Rate is based on monthly rate and there was an additional charge to use a credit card. Train noise is noticeable but is 3 blocks away. There is more noise from people driving by with loud exhausts and music.

Great campground to use as a base to visit Mesa Verde and other places in the region. The owners care about your concerns and are very helpful. The Wi-fi was okay for email but not much else. Verizon signal is low but useable. Easy drive to Cortez for groceries and restaurants. I stayed for a week and the campground was not busy until my last day. When full, you will be very close to your neighbor.

Beautiful view thru the pass and all around. Over priced but really the only game in town if you want full hook-ups. Site was red sand mixed with dirt and some gravel. Cable was fuzzy. WiFi worked well when it connected but sometimes connecting was problematic. Verizon jetpack was useless. A wind storm blew in and it really was a big one. I believe that the pass at the bottom of the campground helped to intensify it. I had to put my Jeep at the rear of my trailer to lessen the impacts of the gusts. My neighbors rig was blown off its blocks and bent one of the stabilizers. I now know where all my leaks are since I have red sand in every crack and crevice. The staff was friendly and helpful.

A very expensive campground on the edge of Sedona with little to offer except location. You are within walking/biking of Sedona but you have to go uphill to get there. The campground sits below the main street next to Oak Creek. The staff is attentive and helpful. A nice touch is they actually check each site after checkout where they clean the table and rake the site. WiFi was typical of a campground, slow during peak hours. Cable TV offers 99 digital stations put drops off constantly. They say it's not their problem but my neighbor had the same issue. Some sites a bit tricky to get into and the trees show the scars. I would stay somewhere else if I ever return.
