Rate includes state park fee. Right near I-70 so some traffic noise especially in loop C where we were. Pull thru sites 42-54 even numbers are long and level. Others looked short. Lovely Camping right on the Colo River. Dog friendly but no runs although the paved roads give you a 2 mile round trip walk and there are other trails. This campground is east of Palisade not the first one which looked sparse by comparison. Recommend reservations as it looked to fill up for weekends. CG host is friendly chap who does some wood and stone carvings. No Verizon cell coverage.ATT worked okay. Definitely would stay again and for a few days! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice little park just outside Grand Junction. Plenty of room between sites and good utilities. Camp hosts did a great job. Sprinkler came on at our site every night at 9:30pm, which added a little cooling mist to our campfire session. Gravel pads with blacktop roads and sites all have a wind/sun shade over the picnic table. There are a couple ponds in addition to the river. I caught more rainbow trout than I could count in those ponds during a 4 day stay. No TV or cell/data reception in this canyon. Glenwood Canyon is spectacular and the nearby town of Palisade has a great wine trail. We'd stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.

First of all, the online reservation service is inaccurate. I only found 4 open sites for the 2 nites we wanted to stay, but when we got there the park was 80% empty for both days...and they charge you $10 for using their ineffective reservation system. This park is located approx 15 miles East of Grand Junction and right on I 70 with considerable truck noise if you are close to the highway. Once at the park, we found that there was no cell service (Verizon), no TV stations, and of course no WiFi. Park was clean and well maintained with a large staff. Lots of rules typical for a State park. The rate was $24/nite + $7/day for a vehicle pass + $10 to make the reservation for a total of $72 for 2 nites plus tax. That seems expensive for a park with minimal services. I think that on our next trip to GJ we will stay in a private campground with full services for about the same rate and closer to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
