10 Parks near Fruita, Colorado

I'm a native of this area back for a class reunion. Our first time to this park but found it to be nicer than other parks in the area. Easy to navigate with our forty foot fifth wheel despite the round about getting off the freeway. Staff friendly enough. Site was okay, with good utilities. Very small swimming pool available as well as laundry room. This is the best place to stay if you want to visit Colorado National Monument. Good park to leave your rig, take a nice drive and picnic lunch into the monument, drive thru and take pictures and make the full loop back through Grand Junction. Or take in the Dinosaur Museum right across the street. Also watch for the Peach Festval in the other end of the valley in early Septemer annually. Best peaches EVER, bar none. - FulltimerFun

95' pull thrus! Love them. Very clean laundry area. $1.50 per wash and .50 for 20 min of drying. Gorgeous nature!
Definitely would stay here again. Didn't give a 10 because 1 tree near entrance needs trimming. - ontheroadmama

We were recently on a long trip to California, and needed a place to spend the night to finish the last leg home back to Colorado.
Reservation process was smooth by phone, and check-in process worked fine. We requested a long pull thru site so we didn't have to unhook, and we got a site that was exactly what we asked for. There was a little confusion when we drove to the site, as wasn't sure exactly which site was ours. But that could have been due to be tired after driving all day!
Nice pull thru site, gravel, plenty long enough. We only used the 50 amp service, didn't hook up water and sewer since it was such a short stay. All worked ok.
Took advantage of the pool, which was perfect on a hot day. The bathrooms were clean, but one set of bathrooms happened to be closed while we were there for maintenance.
Wi-fi was just OK, but that is the way it is at most places. Would definitely stay here again, as park was extremely well maintained, clean,and easy to get to from the interstate. - KTorline

This is a lovely National Parks campground. That said, most of the sites are small. RVs are limited to 40 ft. Our 5th wheel is 31' plus pickup. We had to do a lot of maneuvering to get into our site. There was room for our slideouts but our steps were on the road & we had to put out reflectors. The view, however, was spectacular. Lots of low pinyon and juniper trees make the area very attractive. There is water (no hookup) and clean flush toilets but no dump site. Generators are permitted in loops A&B 8am-8pm. There is a free dump in Fruita at the Colorado visitor center. Coming up to the campground there are tunnels. In the MIDDLE they are 16'. We drove down the center line with no problem because there is not much traffic. Reservations recommended. - storms

This is a beautiful National Monument, the campground is OK. Our site, #30 was not level, most of them aren't. Also, NO utilities and you must arrive with empty septic tanks and full water tanks. The visitor center in Fruita has a dump site and fresh water available.
Generator hours are from 8am to 8pm. Do not start early or be late turning it off. Otherwise the park host will come by and tell you to turn it off. And not very nicely!
Probably will not return since we do not live in the area and now that we have seen the Monument we wouldn't not return. - Rick & Karen

Saddlehorn is beautiful campground in Colorado NM. It provides spectacular views of the Colorado river valley below. The sites are generally smaller and not all that level. Our 30ft total length TT was one of the larger units in the campground. The campground is on a slope so even some of the higher sites still have good views even if you are not on the outside loop close to the drop off. Check the tunnel heights to make sure you fit through prior to your climb up to the campground (11'5" on the edge and 16'1" at center of the road). Standard NP type facilities with updated bathrooms that have running water. The campground does not have a dump station or water fill up. The visitor center at Fruita had a free and well kept dump and water fill up station. - rockwood tt family

Pros: This is a beautiful, fairly new park. The grounds were meticulously maintained and the restroom/laundry room were spotless. There are a ton of outlets in the laundry room and adjoining sitting room. Washers were $1.50 and dryers were $1.00 for 45 minutes, decent prices. Each site has a picnic table with shade shelter. Walking distance to shopping center with convenience store, liquor store, fast food and a good Mexican restaurant. Cons: pull thrus have shelter roof right along parking pad on passenger side and utility stanchion is right next to the line on the drivers side. If you have a big rig with pull outs on both sides or one on drivers side and want to use your awning you may not fit. Suggest you try back in site instead. They have a lot more side room and are quite long. Also half the lighting was out in the laundry room making it very dark, the change machine was broken, and the "suggestion box" had neither cards nor pencil. Probably so I wouldn't complain about the poor lighting! :). Also the showers are a big rip off at $1.00 for 4 minutes and the $7/day "entrance fee" on top of the camping fee is just stupid. Charge what you need to and don't nickel and dime users to death!
Might try the RV park across the road next time since it's only a few dollars more, looked really nice, and supposedly has wi-fi (although they ALL say they do and most don't work worth a darn!). Otherwise, I would still stay here again. - Pdxjoanne

Easy to get in/out from I-70 and around the park. Paved roads and sites. Sites are level. My two criticisms of the site are the bad/short angle entering my pull-thru with a long rig and a big rock caused much frustration. Secondly the fire pit is right next to the pad, only a few feet from the RV. Utilities worked well (extremely high water pressure, use your regulator). No Wifi, Verizon signal strong. - cwier

Very nice state park with nice trails to walk along the river. All utilities worked well. No WiFi or cable but got a few channels on the bat wing. Quiet night, didn't hear any trains and highway noise was just muted background sounds. Nice level concrete pads, paved roads and covered tables. Very nice restroom facilities with a laundromat. Easily accessible gas station at the exit. Lots of extra fees however with $28 camp fee, $7 entrance fee and $10 reservation fee plus pay showers ($1 for 4 minutes) so not necessarily a good value. The real value is it's wide open and spacious so you're not camping on top of one another. I would stay again. - utchaps

Clean campground with wide and long angled pull thru sites. Gravel streets and level gravel pads. Full hookups nice large laundry, well stocked store with good supply of RV products and very helpful and friendly staff. - Charlie M.

This is a very nice park and we would definitely stay here again. We had a pull-thru site that was plenty wide for our slides and awning plus room to park our truck beside the trailer. All utilities worked well, including wi-fi. Our site did not have cable but some sites did have it available. Roads and sites are well-maintained and level gravel. All grass was mowed and everything was neat and well-kept. There were two gravel dog areas plus a small grassy area nearby for those dogs who prefer grass to do their thing. The laundry area was small with only 6 washers and 8 dryers but the appliances were clean and, with one exception, in good working order. The staff was helpful and we were escorted to our site. - SandyA

Clean long & wide pull thrus with "all gravel" well maintained roads and sites, small trees between several sites along with Picnic Table. Friendly staff and restrooms and laundry spotless. Wi-Fi was good. Cable & Antenna many channels. Nice dog area, and on leash walking outside of park worked for our Lab. Pilot & Loves only ½ mile away. - mandrgames

Very modern with large cement pads and driveways. Utilities are very solid with good water pressure, excellent electric and good, ground-level sewer access. Our only problem was that most occupants are full-timers and not too tidy. We stayed twice, for a total of 3 weeks and never sensed any odors. The location is quiet and conveniently located. We will stay here again. - Shadezguy

This is a good overnight stop with friendly part-time staff. There is no office and you must call when you get there to find out how to check in and site number. Lots of permanent residents. A new looking campground with concrete pads but no picnic tables or grills. The turns in the campground are very tight for a 43 foot Class A. - John & Bobbie

This is my 2nd time here in two years. It is still fairly clean and all concrete. Not much character. The rate has gone up significantly, since last visit. The internet connection is now throttled and limited to 40kB. Too slow for any downloads. The laundry dryers do not heat up well, requiring extended drying times. Based on the internet alone, we won't be back. - retiredfields

This is a mobile home park with some RV spaces. Site was almost level, did use one block under wheels. Good for an overnight stay but nothing else. Would return for an overnight. - SD75mac
Sep 2015 - $28.00
While the park is under new management (not ownership) which was friendly and helpful, it was more of a mobile home park, the pet rules were not enforced, and grass & trees were missing. But it was handy to shopping and sightseeing. - Lke

Very pleasant check in...lots of full timers there..close to road...heard trains..but i dont mind that.NO WIFI...cable didn't work either...we really just wanted to be here for a night to catch up on Internet and watch some tv...NEITHER could be done. I wouldn't stay again..for a couple dollars more there are other options...picnic table was a wreck..need to replace..site was level though. - Ollie49

Friendly campsite hosts. Great place to set the kids free and let them play. Great spot to bring a group of friends and get a collective of sites. Clean. No hook-ups. Some good shade trees throughout campsites. - TraceN

An island oasis in the high desert of Loma, CO. Clean and tidy as all of the Colorado State Parks, this little treasure is hard to get a reservation for, but if you can, the rewards are big! This park is the location for many bike races (the famous "18 Hours of Fruita) and other events. The park caters to those scheduled events which means getting in on weekends can be a challenge at best- that is unless you are a participant in one of the events itself. The RV camping and tent sites are all emerald green and fully shaded with beautiful, large poplar trees. The sites are pull in styled and set along a narrow, one-way only, circular, paved road that allows for some tricky navigation for a large 5th wheel- ours is 37ft. and fortunately driven by a very skilled operator! There are only water hook ups and a dump station. The cycling, fishing, boating, hiking and birding opportunities at Highline are hard to beat. Super smooth and fast, well maintained mountain bike trails make for memorable single track thrills! Highline State Park is very dog friendly and truly serene. We can't wait to visit again! - RVLife4us

I got caught by surprise. Didn't realize this was a dry camping park, except almost every site appears to have a water faucet. Oh well. It's a nice park and was very busy for a Thursday night. I had to hunt through all the reservation cards posted to find one that was open for the one night I stayed there! Whatever you do, don't pay before you find a spot! I disagree about the big rig access, mine is 32 feet and I barely had enough room. I was in a "pull-through" and I couldn't put my slides out, they would stick out over the roadway through the park or would hit a tree. Most of the sites are pull through but are shaped in a steep arc and very close to the road. There are a few back in sites, perhaps those will fit the big rigs and slideouts. If you arrive after hours, there is a machine to take your fee, cash or credit cards (again, don't pay before you find a spot!). You have to do two transactions if you use the machine. I wasn't towing a car, but from what I understand (confirmed with the camp host), you have to buy both a camping permit and a vehicle permit for your motorhome. I am guessing that if you tow a car, you may have to buy another permit, but you might want to clarify this. The rate I am showing is $16 for camping and $7 vehicle fee. - DXSMac

This campground is located next to the county fairgrounds, convenient if you want to attend an event there, but something to consider during county fair time. Though we were there on a very busy weekend due to two festivals in town, nights were quiet, which we appreciated. Our pullthru site had decent space for us and our rig, and we were given a site with nice afternoon shade (which we had requested). Folks in the office and working around the campground were friendly and helpful. The only downside was leaving our soap & container in the bathroom, but no one ever turned it in - not the campground's fault, of course. One thing to note: leaving the campground heading west on US 50, it is necessary to turn right and then get into the left lane of the highway right away in order to make a U-turn at the next opportunity. - PokyRVer

We have stayed a number of times at this KOA and we have had good experiences each time. We get the pull through sites that are long enough for the coach and the toad. The sites are level and have a good gravel surface. There Is a picnic table at each site. The WiFi works well. The dog park is not much but they are next door to the fairgrounds where there are lots of places to walk the dog. The people at the front desk are very friendly. We used the pool on this trip and it was very nice. - Ludmilla

Very nice park that management maintains well. Well groomed green grass between sites with a nice space between campers. Easy in and out with 65' feet of MH and toad. Super nice office staff and Rocky their Rottweiler dog. - 45Ricochet

This is our second stay for one month. This is probably the nicest RV park in the Grand Junction area. They work hard to maintain the common areas and spaces. Some areas have small grass patches, other spaces are gravel only. 2 dog parks, a swimming pool and a nice laundry room. We requested a move to another shadier spot after a few days, and they were very accommodating. There are many full-time residents here, but everyone seems friendly. We will use this Park whenever we visit the Grand Junction Colo area! - Explorateurs

We arrived in the evening, but before dark. They close the office at 5:30 PM. In the morning they don't open until 9:00 AM. We didn't spend but one night. We didn't get to use many features. We did walk around in the evening. The park seemed very nice. Most sites were pull-throughs. They had cable TV (analog) which we used. The Internet was not good; it kept dropping. The signal seemed strong enough. The park was adequate for our one night stay. - Scot671

This appears to be a re-branded KOA that was being well maintained. The sites are close together and the utility connections are just outside the distance from the slides. The park is convient to IH-70 but there was no noticeable highway noise. The wifi was free and one of the best we have found in a park. - workingdog

Beautiful State Park. In fact I haven't yet found a Colorado State Park I didn't like. Beautiful nature trail all along the Colorado River. It can get 100 degrees in mid-July but the mesas on both sides help hide the sun earlier and later in the day. Tip: Start your AC early, set it lower to begin with and use your awning. Verizon doesn't work well, but AT&T is pretty good. The restrooms are not as nice as in others, but they are satisfactory. The camp hosts are very nice and friendly. I will certainly return again. Nice relaxing 5 day stay. - Colorado Vagabond

Rate includes $10 transaction fee for online booking plus $7/night park fee paid upon arrival. They accept credit cards. If you plan to stay at other CO parks, you might consider buying an annual pass.
We had a pull-through site which was plenty long. Sites are well-spaced. Our site had a covered picnic table which was nice because it was quite sunny and warm mid-June.
There is a fishing pond and a (different) swimming pond. The Colorado River runs along the back of the property and there is a nice pathway for walking. The campground is "sandwiched" between two mountain walls and they are beautiful. We're told big horn sheep come down to the river but, sadly, we never saw any.
The good news is that the campground is super easy access off the 70 highway. The bad news is that the 70 highway is also sandwiched between the mountain walls so the noise is pretty constant. It didn't bother us but I could see that it might bother some especially if you're trying to sit outside and relax.
One negative is that a nearby neighbor was pretty boisterous one night until 1am. We were surprised park patrol and/or the camp host didn't shut them down. - GottaGoNow

The only draw back here was road noise! But, The scenery was incredible, and we got used to the noise. Great location for day trips around Grand Junction. Espesially up to Grand Mesa.
Sites were mostly pull through, gravel. great shelters with picnic tables at most sites. - Jeff Jangerous
