20 Parks near Creede, Colorado
Jun 2016 - $40.00
Located in a resort with cabins, motel, and high class restaurant. The Rio Grande runs through the property with a lovely bridge crossing it. The RV Park is square and all are back-ins. We were in site 16 which is at the end of a road, so easier to back straight in. We also had a beautiful view through the back window. The park wasn't crowded so we had no one next to us, it might be tight if it were full. - jem11

Nightly rate is based on monthly stay. The scenery is well worth the price to stay here. We stayed for two months. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our site was level and wide enough. There is a nice playground and lots of wildlife. We love the area and plan on coming back next summer. - Tandgtucker

This is a small park located on the Rio Grande River, a few miles out of Creede. All sites are back in on grass/gravel with a concrete patio and picnic table. We only need 30 amp as the 8,900 ft elevation offers warm days and cool nights.The sky is open for satellite and internet is adequate. Verizon cell is good, not excellent. Very quiet, both day and night. At this elevation, the stars at night are magnificent. Not all sites are the same width, ours was a little tight and if you have a big 5er like we do, backing in can be a little challenging, but do-able. - ronboett

Easy access from Hwy 149. The park roads in the Resort portion are gravel and sites are dirt and level. Road layout makes it easy maneuvering in a big rig. Sites are gigantic (40' x 80') and range in width, but more than adequate to park beside/behind the camper with fencing buffers. Every utility and connection is conveniently located and are up to spec. Facilities, grounds, recreations and luxuries were clean and maintained. Neighbors are friendly and helpful, staff is accommodating and escort you to your site. This is a destination park with gated access and some lots owned by campers. - duster340

I spent 4-days here in July 2016 and found this park to be very nice and welcoming. I didn't reserve in advance but called the morning of my arrival. I ended up in the "Resort" section in a site that was for sale but had not been sold. It was a beautiful site with a great view of the mountains, a water feature at the front of the site and a gravel walking trail at the front, as well.
The bathhouse is clean and nice but not up to the standards of the rest of the park. There is only one bathhouse and it's on the "RV Park" side, not the "Resort" side. The Laundry looked big and well laid out. It too is only on the RV Park side.
In reality there isn't much difference between the two sides. But the sites on the Resort side are available for 40-yr lease and are improved with pads, patios, outdoor dining/kitchens etc.
The wifi is pitiful. It drops all the time. I'm typing this in the park and I'll guess that the wifi will drop while writing. You can pay $3 a day to get better Wifi and I should have tried it. I just wasn't sure it would be any better than the free Wifi.
Cell service here is all 3G. My Verizon and ATT hotspots both show 3 bars and 3G service.
The sites are very large but unless you lease a lot for 40-yrs they are simply gravel with a picnic table, but plenty of room for your RV and tow vehicle/toad.
I'll be back that's for sure. It's a solid 8.5 to 9. Especially in this remote part of Colorado. Remote but absolutely beautiful. - Creativepart

This is a very nice park, large sites, good utilities. Lots of amenities and activities. Wifi was weak early in the day and limited later. We had a weak Verizon data signal. Our only complaint was that we had a site facing west so we had no shade in the afternoon. An east facing site would have been better. We would stay here again. Good views, close to town. - John and Carol

Stayed here in Aug, 2016 in a Class A motorhome. Camp owners and hosts are friendly and helpful. Beautiful views. The park is next to a hill with a huge rock bluff (probably over 700 ft to the top) on one side and the Rio Grande River on the other side.
Campground has rental jeeps and horseback rides with a guide. Only minutes from both South Fork and Creede. Good fishing, both stream and lakes, in the area.
Campground is nothing special with most of the sites without shade, only 8-10 had shade. Most sites are pull through and all sites are gravel with varying levelness. No picnic tables. Restaurant on site for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good food. - Camper71-2004

The park is located at the base of a huge, beautiful cliff that has deer, elk, and bighorn sheep on its slopes. Our site was a long level, gravel pull thru with grass between sites. All utilities worked fine. The internet is extremely weak and Verizon service is about 1/2 bar. The host was very friendly and helpful. They have a good restaurant on site and the ice cream in the gift shop is both delicious and inexpensive. There a lot of cottonwood trees (hence the name) shading the property, but we were in the open, so our satellite dish worked fine. Phone and internet upgrades would make this park a "10". - ronboett

Well maintained, "country" RV park about 12 miles south of Creede. The Rio Grande River is a short walking distance across the highway. Gravel/grass spaces that are easy to pull-through. The Wi-Fi access is very sketchy and slow if available. Not all cellular service is available (T-Mobile not available). Beautiful area next to the river and mountains. Horseback riding, river rafting, jeep rental, fishing, hiking: enough to keep everyone busy for weeks. RV park entrance is on west side of Lodge and Cabins! The entrance is fairly narrow, adjust your turning accordingly! Interior roads are easily negotiated. If you stop at the Lodge, pull in at front parallel to the road. Do not attempt to pull in on west side of Lodge with large rigs! Camp host site well marked inside the entrance. The camp host, staff, and owners are all very friendly and helpful. Some "summer-long" campers who return every year. We will definitely camp here again. - geo-gypsy

Good park for a base camp. Convenient to the 2 area highways. Utilities worked fine although some are inconvenient (had to lead water hose under trailer). WiFi was very good. Site was level. Many seasonals from Texas and Oklahoma who have come year after year. Activities and potlucks. - gumper

This was our first time in South Fork Colorado. We have been through here when we stay at Creede. This is a nice park easy to get to right off of 149. The spaces are well laid out. When you back into your site you must put your passenger side tires on the line. This designates your site. By doing this you should have plenty of room for your slides and awning. The views are not as grandeur as Creede's are but there are mountain views from some of the spaces. The WIFI here is awesome! There is no over the air TV. This is a good destination park. Price indicates monthly stay with our son. We will return when coming to this area. - Speedy

We stayed here for a quick overnight stop while passing through the area. Park was fairly empty. We were given one of the 3 pull-through sites and it was easy to get our 43-footer into, but would have been very tight if we had a neighbor. Water spigot was much too close to the sewer. A little pricey for an overnight for what you get, but easy highway access. - Xcountrypartyof5

We stayed here the last day before they shut down for the season. After one night camping we wanted to leave the RV and take the toad over Wolf Creek Pass for 2 nights. They allowed us to do that for a $15.00 per night storage fee. Very pleasant attendant. Some road noise from rumble strips but not bad. Would stay here again. Campsites are gravel as well as the roads in the campground. There are picnic tables at each site. There is a nice store at the office. Every thing about the campground is very clean and well organized. - travelerlee

Dumpy park with ugly metal corral style dividers between sites and overgrown with weeds and crowded. They benefit from being located on the east side of Wolf Creek Pass, a high altitude mountain pass. Anyone navigating the pass near dark is likely to take refuge here after nervously coming up the pass and approaching this small town. Price was somewhat good as compared to others, but literally nothing to do in this campground, no rec facilities, small store was closed when we got there, staff (older guy) wasn't too inviting. - yousah

This park is conveniently located in the town of South Fork. It is a very basic park and from what we can tell, one of the better parks in the area. The roads and sites are gravel. Each site is separated by a corral-like metal fence. The sites are close together with tow vehicles and toads parked every which way on the roads since the spaces are too tight to park your vehicle in the site. There is a small rec hall that is open to all unless it is booked by a group staying in the park. Most of the people in the park are returnees from East Texas who stay for the summer and seem to know each other. However, they were all very welcoming to us and invited us to their weekly jam session and card nights. There are weekly pot lucks. Verizon aircard and phone worked well. There is are two bathrooms and two showers and were very clean. There were two washers and two dryers and were reasonably priced. WiFi is available but we didn’t use it. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. For what you get, I feel the cost of the campground was high but this is the going rate for the area. We would stay here again. - adsaxs

Small park, about 33 spaces, mostly back in, rec. hall and separate game/card room, music, jams most evenings, July thru August, fishing, hiking, very scenic area, mushrooms in season, pool table and WII in Rec. hall, 5 mph in park. Many long term (monthly Rvers ) campers stay until Sept. Oct. Convenience store and fuel also on property. - txprospector

Very convenient for a stop over. Right next to Rainbow Grocery which has almost every thing you might need or want: food, automotive, sporting goods and RV supplies and prices are not bad at all. Right in the middle of town at the intersection of US160 and the road up to Creed. Surprisingly quiet. Filled with people from Paradise, TX that come every year for the last 40 years. Country/Western music jam session are frequent. Club house with pool table. Friendly owners that guide you in and help you set up. It's pretty tight - all back in spots with rear hookups. I had quite a stretch to make with my sewer hose, ended up moving over a couple of feet so I didn't have to go under the RV. I would camp here again only out of convenience. - creageous

Rainbow RV Park is a small park located behind the Rainbow Motel/Cabins and is within walking distance to Rainbow Grocery Store. Most folks are from TxX, OK and Kansas. There are several musicians and jam sessions several times a week. There is a rec, hall w/pool table and WII/entertainment/exercise--also a cabin for the several quilting ladies to do their sewing/quilting in. All in all a very pleasant place to stay. - txprospector

The neighbors were great, we really enjoyed meeting some interesting folks. The park, however, is well past it's prime. The management isn't friendly and they turn off the WiFi if they feel it is being used too much. The cable TV didn't work and the bathrooms/showers aren't clean. Overall the park could use a good sprucing up and a new attitude for the grumpy owner lady. The setting is absolutely beautiful. - oneeyedmac

Great park. Off the highway, so a bit of noise, but really not bad. Mostly grass sites, some are pretty sweet and shady are held by seasonal renters. Nestled in among the cliffs heading to Wolf Creek Pass on US160. There's horseback riding and ATVing run out of the office and professional quilting equipment. South Fork is 6 miles and the National Forest is 200 feet away. The air is cool and it rains some. There is a nice laundromat and showers. The water is a bit on the brown side, so bring an extra filter and the pressure comes and goes. Quiet, inexpensive and quite beautiful. I would stay here again. I am here for over 1 month paying $320/month plus electric. - creageous
Jul 2014 - $26.00
New mgmt, still a little unorganized, tried to charge us above the original price agreed. Fortunately, we had the email showing the price we agreed to. Wifi never worked, they kept promising it was being worked on but nothing ever happened on it. We requested 50 amp, but they only have four sites out of 50 that have 50 amp and they were occupied, one by a smaller trailer that was using 30 amps. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are NOT ADA accessible (25 years into the law). A fellow camper was in a wheel chair and could not use them. Over all, great visuals and nice location, but for the price, I expect better. - Orlan

This Cg was a nice peaceful overnight for us. It was only about a third full, with mainly retired RVers from Arkansas and Texas. It was grassy, clean, and quiet. Owner was very friendly and we will be back. - number one

We stopped because we were tired already and this area was beautiful. The campground was not the greatest but we had a nice experience overall. The managers even lent us a BBQ and were very nice. We did not use the showers or bathrooms, but I did check them out and they looked clean. The laundry has good prices compared to other campgrounds we stayed. There are no facilities for kids but we only spent the night and left very early so it work out for us. - ArTom

Power surges daily. Poor WiFi. Restrooms worn out condition but clean. Noisy right on highway. Aggressive breed dogs allowed (pit bulls and Doberman in park). Your neighbors fire ring's right next to your RV; burn all night and talk loudly. Mud puddles to jump over when walking.
Owners & staff friendly. Flowers in park a nice touch. River is beautiful. - HarperDash
Sep 2015 - $30.00
This is a small park right on the river. It is a nice place to stay. The staff is very good and informative. The tent sites are right on the river while the rv sites are on a hill above. The wifi is basically non existent and even at the office is worse than a snail crossing the road. We will most likely stay here again. - lapazjim

We stayed here a couple of weeks last year and stayed here a month this year (2012)and will probably stay here again in the future. This is an older park established in the 1950's I think, and was in a Chevy Chase movie "Vacation" made in the 1980's. Facilities are older but kept clean and usable. The WiFi does not reach all the campsites but an air card (Verizon)takes care of our needs just fine. A river on the south side of the campground has a good brown and rainbow trout population. They stocked it every two weeks while we were there with rainbow trout. Watched them stock in about five different locations (holes ?)in the stretch of river below the campsites. Most of the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Laundry facilities were acceptable, showers and restroom facilities were older but clean and working. We would return to this campground as it is a good central location to this part of Colorado. - etex ghostrider
