Beautiful setting, large site, good location for hiking and exploring nature. Verizon worked great, zero AT&T. 30 amp hookup is very adequate for this time of year. Sites are a little uneven, so a little patience when leveling. Would have scored higher, but major roadwork occurring directly by the campground making for bumpy roads and delays. When completed, will be awesome. - datestreet

This campground is across the road from the Taylor River. The road, although busy during the day, is quiet at night. Most of the sites have large trees around them, so satellite access is poor. Verizon worked well here. They have improved this campground over the years and the camp hosts keep it immaculate. The sites have a lot of space between them so, one has a fair amount of privacy. The dump site is down a dirt road about 15 miles up the canyon. It is not very well designed, and they charge $5.00. The dirt road is a very rough 4 mile drive. Next time we would just drive back to Gunnison or over the pass to Buena Vista to dump at a private campground. This is a beautiful area to hike, fish, and enjoy the outdoors. - sunbadgers

Beautiful and serene natural setting in Taylor Canyon. Large pull through gravel site with large private sitting area. Even though heavily treed we were able to get satellite reception. Very friendly and helpful camphosts. Bathrooms are immaculate. Convenient to many scenic drives in area. Would be a 10 if there were sewer hookups. We would definitely return. - Wandering Wishnies

This RV park is set out on a hill in Taylor Park. (A "Park" in the West is an area largely devoid of trees.) This location, a significant distance from any sizable town, is at about 10,000 feet and surrounded by even higher mountains. The view of the mountains is stupendous. The positive: great view, friendly management, the utilities all work, nearby fishing, hiking, interesting and challenging trails for ATV's and Jeeps. The negative: poor to almost nonexistent Internet service even when using your own hot-spot, sites on which it is difficult to level. We like this park and enjoy the isolation from civilization. We would not hesitate to return. - hoppytoad

We couldn't wait to get out of there. No trees anywhere on the whole site. The utilities were laid out just the opposite of what they should have been. The sewage was towards the front and the water supply at the rear. and were spread out 15' apart making it difficult to reach everything. The campground host was extremely rude, just looking for a reason to hassle people. We would never camp here again. - lstephe99

The Colorado Dream Ranch is the only RV Park in the Taylor Park area. There are a few campgrounds with no hookups and one other place a few miles down the road that has a very limited amount of full hookup spaces. Dream Ranch is the only park that has numerous spaces, full hookups and direct access from the pavement which is really nice if you don’t like driving your RV on a dirt road. The park itself is nothing special and doesn’t have any trees or beauty. But the amenities it offers makes it all worthwhile and the 360 view of the mountains is breathtaking. There is a Laundromat and Showers on the premises and close by you have the trading post store, restaurant, and gift shop. Don’t waste your time eating at the “Nugget” restaurant; it’s only a short drive down the road to the historical town of “TinCup” where “Frenchy’s” has the best food ever. This is our second year at this park and what we love the most is being able to ride our ATV’s directly from our RV. We also really appreciate the manager for taking such great control of the park and not allowing anyone to abuse park rules which makes it nice for the rest of us who like to enjoy our stay. This is a fun park with lots of action and you will have a great opportunity to meet a lot of other people who also have the love for ATV riding. The Taylor park area is the “Mega” ATV riding of the United States. This area offers hundreds of miles of beautiful trail riding with numerous lakes, rivers, creeks, streams and wildlife. It’s definitely one of our favorite finds and we will continue to come back every year if possible. - shelliedoug

Lovely, shaded, peaceful campground on Gunnison National Forest on Taylor Canyon Road. Hosts were excellent and it was very clean. Vault toilets. You can see the highway, but it is very quiet at night. We were here for hiking in Crested Butte area. Turns could be a little tight for big rigs. We were here in a 30' fifth wheel and did fine. Watch for low limbs. We would definitely stay here again. Beware there is no RV dump station in the area. The one you will see advertised as "Almont" is really not in Almont, but a long way down Taylor Canyon Road close to the reservoir and then 6 miles down a very rough road to Tincup, CO. Closest "normal" RV dump is at Tall Texan RV park near Gunnison, CO on Hwy 135. - ouachita princess

This is a basic campground in that there are only gravel pads and no dump station, but the view is incredible. You are on the side of a mountain and can see a broad valley with Taylor Reservoir down the hill, and snow-capped mountains in the distance. Truly a postcard view. I got cell service by roaming. It is 16 miles from Almont, but that is the only nearby village. Water is available, but come in with empty tanks as the nearest dump station is 3.5 miles away down a dirt road. Also, bring plenty of food as there is only a small expensive store nearby. - judy_online

We had reservations for three nights but left after only one. We were in the electric loop which is out in the open, with NO shade, trees, or privacy. CG road was about 15 feet from trailer and road was busy and noisy. That night, the next site down had a party with lots of noise, music, shrieking kids, and hollering until about 11:00 pm. The next morning we told hosts that we would like to switch sites and move to a non-electric which would be in the trees (shade). They said we could, but would have to pay ANOTHER fee, even though we had paid 3 nights at our electric site. We figured if we had to pay again, we would just go someplace else as that CG didn't deserve our business! We won't go back!! - number one

This is a gorgeous forest campground but reservations are definitely recommended. It's very popular, especially the one loop of 50A electric sites. This loop has the views! The other three loops are in the pines although a few have limited lake views. The $13 reflects the Golden Age rate with electric. Many sites are very large and our 40' motorhome and Jeep fit great! We would definitely visit again. There are no showers, no dump, no RV water fill but there are water spigots. There is a dump about 5 miles toward Tincup but it's a very dusty road. The campground has paved sites and the Taylor Canyon Road to get there is paved. There is a strong Verizon phone signal but we got only Global Access for internet which was slow but adequate. - nbi600

Bears in the campground and cattle grazing in the woods: we loved this place. Pine Cone loop is across the stream from the main camp ground and has no water tank fill, so tank up in Baldy loop before going into a site at Lottis. No dump station in any loop is the only reason I gave it a 9. Very spacious, big rig access is good in some sites, no tree issues on the roads. - bobcovey

We stayed 2 nights in space 12 of Baldy loop. We had stayed previously when there was no electric. In 2012 the Forest Service totally re-did the campground and added electric to all of the sites. The place is beautiful. All the sites in Baldy loop are treed. Bathrooms are very clean and the camp hosts did a great job of keeping all the sites clean. Our site was very level only requiring less than an inch on one side. Nice fire pits and picnic tables. Other than the nice bathrooms there are no amenities but, hey, this is a forest campground. We didn't come for cable or Wi-Fi. Quite peaceful. Taylor Reservoir is about 7 miles up the road. There is an extensive hiking trail system that starts just south of the campground. We will be back in fact have reservations again in a couple weeks. - User3442

We were here right before they were closing for the season I think because we never saw the owners for the whole time we were at the campground. On our last 2 days we were the only ones there and the bathrooms were not cleaned for the 3 days we were there. That was concerning since there were no sewer hookups or dump stations locally. The campground looks very nice and might be better during prime season. It is also located in the back of an industrial park. If you look to the mountains you have a very nice view but not the other way. We might try this campground again during the prime season if in the area. - John Borajkiewicz

Great little park, although the office is only manned a few hours each morning. Clean, quiet. No dump station on site. Flowers and a small tree between sites. Our site faced west toward a grassy area, stream, and mountains in the distance - beautiful. - Liv2RV

There are only 2 toilets (1 for men, 1 for women.) Yes, there was often a line for both. The toilet stalls did not have hot water. This was by design. There are 2 showers. They are very good, but there is no toilet in the shower rooms. One afternoon we got back from hiking and there was no water at all.
The dog walking area has knee-high weeds that are not mowed. It is necessary to walk through someone's campsite to get to the area.
There is no hookup for sewer.
The WIFI worked about 1/2 of the time. - evcolo

Very nice park with cottonwood trees for shade. Lots are very close but quiet. Has propane gas for sale. Concrete patio, but the site wasn't very level. Not a real problem though. - MECamper

Rate was for a week's stay and also includes the $3/day extra for 50amp. We stayed here late season, so the park was emptying out. The fall colors there were gorgeous, and there's a sweet little stream that runs alongside. The owner put us in one of the best sites, after I asked for a satellite-friendly one (the cg is in a cottonwood forest). We had no problem getting signal with our roof-mounted dish and so enjoyed the beautiful location!! The sites near/next to the pond are lovely! Also found the owner to be very friendly and helpful when we needed extra hands for loading equipment. He obviously works hard to keep the cg in good shape and to help people into and out of their sites. I don't understand the other recent, rather poor, reviews of this place! We have done part-full time RVing for almost 6 years now and found this to be a very nice cg! And the so-called "trashy trailer park" another reviewer referred to wasn't visible/noticeable to us from the cg (in fact, I couldn't see it well enough to know if it was trashy or not!). We have a 40' motorhome and would definitely stay here again, esp. late season. - CarrieBearie

Probably was once a good family RV park. Nice log cabin style buildings. Beautiful outside pavilion, but all was run down with no activity for guest. When we arrived things were not right. Entrance was overgrown with tree limbs rubbing side of rig. Part of office ceiling had falling down. Guided us thru the back forty and parked us beside a year around renter. Grass had not been mowed. Would not stay here again. - ghhensley

This is really a nice campground but you must be 55 or older to stay at this park. In addition no overnight stays by children or visitors under age 55. There are other rules, such a strict 5 miles per hour within the park. If you can live with these rules then this is a great park to be in. The park is located within Gunnison city limits.
The interior roads and sites are on pack pea gravel. The streets are very wide. The pull thrus are staggered "side to side" and the back in sites are a little wider than the pull thrus. All sites have 50/30/15 amp electrical service, FHU and a picnic table. The voltage was hovering around 119 volts. There was no problem in getting the rig leveled.
The majority of the residents stay there for at least 3 months or more. However, all of the sites were kept tidy. There are (2) bathrooms with a shower in the club house. The laundry room had (3) washers at $1.25 and (3) dryers at $0.75 for 30 minutes. The club house, laundry room and bathroom were spotless. There is also (2) dog runs.
There are weekly pot lucks, card games and scheduled ATV rides.
The park Wifi was excellent. Verizon air card and phone reception was also good.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to this park. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

Saturdays they hold a pot luck meal that's been great. Drives and parking are all compacted gravel. Speed limit is 5 mph and enforced by mgmt. WiFi is 10/2 mbps, that is better than most campgrounds. Weather is pleasant in the Summertime 70's/40's for the most part. - HandyHank

This is our 3rd year to stay here. Almost 3 months this year and on the list for next year. If staying for a month or more you really need to make a reservation a year in advance. They do have a week here and there you might get in.
We have guest speakers on Wednesday, Pot Luck dinners on Saturday, Church Service on Sunday, and usually on Tuesday or Thursday a Jeep ride or a dirt road ride for those with out a Jeep. Model airplanes fly every morning in the calm still air. Fishing is close by and a boat is not needed. Walking, hiking, river rafting, biking, gun range, golf are close by. The ladies have stitch and bitch most every day.
This is a place where folks come back year after year. The cool mornings and pleasant afternoons make this a perfect place for summer. - jlb27537

very large grassy sites west of the city, yet only two miles from downtown. Very quiet, close to Gunnison River for rafting.

With all the beautiful campgrounds to stay in, this wasn't anywhere near expectations. The sites are very close and difficult to maneuver. The sites are all grass so its hard to tell when a site begins and ends. Though we paid for 50 amp, it is available only at every other site, so if you get there late and your next door neighbor has hooked up to the 50 amp, you're out of luck. Sewage was similar to the electric. When we arrived, the campground had rented out their ponds and open areas for a big party, making it VERY difficult to get into the campground with all the cars everywhere. - davis0056
