Very nice campground. Tent loop has larger sites and more privacy than RV loop. This campground rarely fills up, but RVs should have a reservation for weekends--its a long way down if you can't find a site. I was in my trusty tent and had no trouble finding a site on a Saturday evening. Beautiful setting. Nice hosts were highly visible. I would certainly camp there again if I was in my tent. Probably wouldn't take my trailer there. - NT2013
A great value with spectacular views and a friendly camp host. No reservations and it can get hot in summer, but weather was perfect in late September. Rate reflects senior discount. - Tomk2
For boondocking this is the most magnificent, best kept secret on the road. There are no reservations, so get in early or off season. Pay attention to the trailer length restrictions. There were only a few sites which could take our 30' Airstream. Drive the loop, take the trails, see the sights. This is our third stay there and we will be back. Rate reflect Sr. Pass. - SilverOtter

Excellent park for a one might stay or as a recreation destination. Bath houses clean. Staff efficient. Most lots have trees, but not a lot of shade, however, a covered picnic table is provided. Sites are concrete and level. Fire pits appear to be cleaned when you leave. Rates are reasonable and a full hookup site is only $4 more than water/power only. - Bama Camper
$24 per night was for a level concrete pad site with full hookups, sheltered picnic table, and fire ring. The campground has many large trees as well as low growing plants/grass separating the generous sites. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Many activities are available in and around the park. Nearby Grand Junction has everything anyone might need. AT&T & Verizon service were five bars of 4G LTE. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access. There were 12 OTA TV stations. - DD Rolling Ranch
This is an urban campground located right off I-70 in Fruita. There is noise from the interstate and from nearby train tracks although we are not bothered by that but some would be. Our site was concrete, level, and a pull-through with 30 amp, water, and a covered picnic table. Voltage was low and Verizon cell service was good. It is well maintained but the ground was soggy from so much watering and the mosquitoes were terrible. We called in advance to inquire about trees and to even get a suggestion for an adequate site since we are not from the area. Low hanging trees in campgrounds are a pet peeve of ours and we were told trees would not be a problem, but in fact they were. There are some low hanging trees at the entrance to the park that you must dodge and we had trees scraping the side of our RV at our site. Not all sites have issues with trees so choose wisely. It is a lovely place for being located in town. We would stay again but be much more selective on the site we choose. Our rate includes a $7.00 day use fee tacked on to the camping fee. - roadking
This place is a joke. Be prepared to read every line of the rules when you check in, BEFORE you pay. Many, many rules to which you must comply, and no refunds. The manager is cranky, unhelpful, and downright rude.
Wifi is terrible too.
It's clean though, and in a good location.
I've been traveling for four years and have stayed in a lot of RV Parks. I have never felt compelled to write a bad review before I stayed here. - abcd1234
Just a good all round campground. Wifi/cable work great. Location is super. Staff are friendly. Great dog walking/hiking areas are nearby: Dinosaur Hill and trails start just south of Kings View Blvd/below the Col National Monument/@1 mile from rv park/ south of bridge. Kind of an off leash area for friendly dogs! - Mtn hiker
This park is clean and tidy. The sites are close together and are all gravel. They have picnic tables and built in BBQ grills. The small pool and spa were clean, although I didn't have time to try them out. The fenced in dog area is quite small and all gravel, but the state park directly across the street has a walking path, and there is a sidewalk adjacent to the park where you can take a stroll with your dog, and enjoy the scenic view of the Colorado National Monument, and the mesas. It's located just a couple minutes drive from the Monument. The park seemed to fill up nightly over the weekend we were there. - jodykay50pub
