Another dirt parking lot. Just a place to park when you visit the sand dunes. They have WIFI but you'll have to carry your notebook into the office to help getting it setup. I couldn't figure his instructions and I worked on computers since the time when they took up whole buildings. Some trash laying around the CG and the one trash can was overflowing. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Great Sand Dunes NP is about the only attraction. There is, very oddly, a Alligator Farm in the area. Being from Florida we found this to be very strange. Shop in Alamosa. Oh yes there is some sort of small fort in Fort Gardner we passed but didn't visit.

Very basic but FHU utilities worked well. WiFi was fast. Only one or two 50 amp sites. Sites are very short. We have a big rig and we hung out on both ends of a pull through with the truck hooked up but was OK for 2 nights in off season. We used a 50 amp site close to the store. Any other site and I'm not sure we could have maneuvered it. Bottom line, this place is fine (if you fit) for a night or two to visit the Dunes. Did not check out the shower or bathroom. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I've stayed here 3 times now. There is no cell service except at the hot spot at the office. Wi-Fi is just OK. The spots are treeless but your DirecTV will work perfectly. I do like the river, quiet location and the owners. If you want a basic quiet place with clean bathrooms and showers this is your place. No frills, No noise, No hassles. Can't beat relaxing like this. Tent area looks good. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights using Passport America. It’s a dump, yes. There’s a major highway on one side and train tracks on the other side, yes. The highway was a bit noisy at times but didn’t wake any of us from sleeping. The train only came through once before we went to bed, so that didn’t bother us at all. The Wi-Fi was flying. It’s as close as you can get to Great Sand Dunes National Park without dry camping inside the park. Great Sand Dunes is now one of our favorite National Parks. We spent 6 hours there and didn’t want to leave. For 2 nights, this campground is fine. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Small RV park – not a resort. Gravel roads and sites with table and a few trees. Has partial and full hook up sites, but only a few sites with 50 amps. Small store, but no game room, no club house, no pool. Free password protected but weak Wi-Fi. No Verizon cell or 4G signal in the park. Satellite TV signal in most sites. No cable TV. Owner friendly and helpful and park accepts pets. Campground geared more for overnighters and visitors to Great Sand Dunes Nat’l Park, but OK for a night or two. Fifteen miles from Nat’l Park. State hwy on one side and railroad track on other side, but not much traffic and surprisingly quiet. Would stay there again. Cost listed is for Passport. Does not accept C2C, RPI or ROD. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

New owner (and former RVer) has big plans for this conveniently located park. Essentials, like great WIFI and showers and convenience store, are already done. Plan to come back in a couple of years to see his progress. Accepts PA. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is located between a very noisy (lots of trucks) highway on the north, and a railway on the south side. There was only one train during our stay, but it was loud. The only pros of this campground are full hookup sites with 30 Amp (only two sites have 50 Amp), level sites, free WiFi (they made it unnecessarily complicated to connect to) and a scenic view to the mountains. On the other hand it is very dusty and there are some rundown permanent rigs. The overall impression of this campground is dingy. That brings it to 4 plus and 1 big minus = 3 points. The Passport America (PA) discount is not valid for the 50 Amp sites. Those two sites are overpriced, but when we arrived it was very hot and I was tired, so we paid the price. We will not return to this campground. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects PA rate which makes this place worth an overnight. Lots of long term, mostly very old some run down rigs. Also mobile homes onsite, not all occupied, also run down. No fire rings & few tables. Still, despite negatives, if you are not real fussy & don't mind mixing your levels of accommodation up a bit this is worth a one nighter or two. Wi-Fi is good with an external router in the middle of the CG. Power pedestals look like they have recently been upgraded. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, little, no frills, campground located on Hwy 160 in Blanca. Great place to stay to see the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Zapata Falls. Clean restrooms and laundry. Free WiFi and a couple of local TV channels. Nice little store and friendly owners. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small park: 27 spaces, most with 30 amp service but was enough for our rig to stay for 2 nights. Very friendly staff/owners (that just took over operations in March). Many upgrades under construction. With a little TLC and this park will be a winner, and packed with a waiting list to get in! Located on hwy 160 about 50 miles from Walsenburg, Colorado. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is just 25 miles away, Fort Garland Museum is 4 miles away. There is a great diner within walking distance. Has on site propane, a food store, and video rentals. Overall a good value. They also accept Passport America. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

The price paid reflects a Passport America price. These are some sites next to a gas station in a small town. It was rather run down with some mobile homes to the side. We stayed here for a few nights to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park which is nearby. Our site was a full hook-up pull-through 30 amp site. The sites and roads are quite narrow. There appeared to be a number of construction workers staying there. There was quite a bit of road and train noise. The lady in the office was very friendly and helpful regarding information about the area. This was an OK place to stay for a night or two due to the inexpensive price and proximity to the national park. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was an ok place for overnight. In the Passport America directory, it says "some" cable TV sites. There are none due to the Blanca Cable going out of business. Get fuel in Fort Garland or Almarosa before hitting Blanca. We will drive the extra miles to another park. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed there three nights. The rate is the Passport America rate of $10 for full hook up. Close to the Sand Dunes and Ft.Garland. Site was level and the park is reasonable quiet and clean. The Rio Grande Scenic train passes by and blows the steam whistle. It has been a long time since I have heard that sound. We would stay here again. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground was like a dirt lot with a few weedy sites near the fence and road. Blanca is a very small town. Was a quiet park with a few residence type campers. Price reflects PA discount and you got what you paid for!!! Probably wouldn't stay here again unless we were tired of driving. Staff in office were very nice. Some dogs running loose. We camped at Blanca RV Park in a Motorhome.
