Used this as a stop over. Just a gravel parking lot with no shade. Temperature was pretty hot outside. They did get us checked in very quickly. Easy in and easy out. Not sure if I would stay again. If I did it would only be for a stop over. Hopefully I have the fee correct. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for touring Colorado National Monument and Dinosaur Discovery Center. Easy access off I-70. This is a nice clean park close to restaurants and gas stations. It was over 100 degrees during our stay so we especially appreciated the small pool and spa. Spaces are gravel with a table in the usual close, side by side layout of many parks with only a few trees scattered around the park for shade. A little bit of grass between spaces would have been nice. Free wireless was for only 24hrs after which you must sign up and pay for service ($5) and was very sporadic. Management was very friendly. Even though the amenities were very basic we enjoyed our stay. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very rude lady working at the park. We just got out of the R.V. after a long drive, a dog barked at our 2 Beagles and our dogs barked back once, and she said we won't have barking dogs here. We moved to a different site. Don't stay here if you have dogs. This place in over-rated, only hot gravel to walk you dogs on. A real nice State Park across the street. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Good layout, level sites. Quiet, friendly. Good Mandarin restaurant in walking distance, also Taco Bell. Many other attractions in the area for sight-seeing. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Park is very clean and has a view of the mountains. Restrooms/showers were spotless. Check in was easy and efficient. We camped here for one night. We don't know why it is so highly rated by Woodalls. It's basically a gravel parking spot, and we would not recommend for anything but overnight. Very few trees and/or grass and what grass they have they do not allow dogs on. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well kept park. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were very clean. Has nice big, level gravel sites with scattered trees. ATT and Verizon service was very good. Pool and spa were not yet open. Why don't these parks keep the hot tub open in the WINTER when you really want it?? Park staff was very friendly and helpful.

We camp here about 4 times per year as a first/last night on our trip. We've reviewed Monument several times. Many long-term residents working in the energy business. Staff was helpful. Easy in easy out. Wide level gravel sites. We had a shear bolt break on one of our slides. Called the guy that advertises on their check in sheet and he got us back on the road the next morning with only a short delay. Strong Internet signal. Don't like paying for it but oh well. No major complaints. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stopped in here for just one night. We got there late and had to check ourselves in. The check in process was pretty simple. Everything we saw of this campground looked really good. The location is nice with a Colorado visitor center next door. The one drawback is that they offer internet access but it is not free. Good for an overnight stay We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We chose this park because of its proximity to the Colorado National Monument. It has paved roads and gravel sites. There are a few trees but overall it looks like a desert campground. The campground was quiet and well kept. The restrooms were clean and new. The pool was very small but we did not use it so it was immaterial to us. It is convenient to the interstate and to Grand Junction. The cable offered several channels and I didn't mind paying for the internet (4.95/day or 14.95/week) because it was fast and reliable. If visiting the same area, we would stay here again. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Stay well away! Office was locked, and no one was around when we arrived at 7:05 p.m. Standard paperwork permitted check-in, but bathrooms/showers were locked tight. Wireless internet, free at the previous 10 places we'd stayed, cost $4.95 for 24 hours. Office opened at 8 a.m., and surly clerk shrugged at our complaints, saying bathhouse had to be locked against vagrants. Asked what the $35 charge had bought us, she smirked, "A place to park.

This immaculate park with all the bells and whistles is delightful. Staff helpful. Sites level. Near the CO National Monument, a oft-overlooked gem. We would definitely recommend it without reservations. We camped in a travel trailer. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is just fine for a stop to see the Colorado Monument or Grand Junction. There are many permanent residents. The big rig pull-thru sites are long enough for our 45 foot bus and car trailer and wide enough for the SUV next to the trailer but that's all. The sites are all gravel with no grass between and are close together. Laundry was poor but there is a good commercial laundromat in GJ. WiFi is Tengo. Both Verizon and AT&T air cards worked well. Satellite was fine although an adjacent coach with a dome appeared to be blocked by a tree - they had no service. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a delightful, well-manicured RV park with extremely long spaces (ours was 95 feet), wide paved streets, beautiful views, and everything you could want in an RV Park. Others have commented on pipeline workers who reside in the park and there are some but management insists that their sites be clean and neat, and they are. I would rate this park a 10 across the board except for two reasons: Their wi-fi service costs a ridiculous $5.00 daily, is through what is arguably the worst RV park internet provider in the county, TengoInternet. The service is very poor despite the extremely high price. The other drawback is the location of the water connection. It is below ground and you literally have to stand on your head to connect your hose. For these reasons I drop them from a 10 to an 8. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean and quiet park with a separate section for big rigs with very long pull-thrus. The sites were quite level, all gravel, no trees and my only complaint was that they were a little close together. The water and sewer hookups were somewhat strange but not a problem. For those who want to visit the Colorado National Monument, it is a perfect stopping place. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We, too, were somewhat reluctant about this park because of earlier negative comments, but found them to be either not representative of current conditions or overstated. We found the office staff to be friendly and helpful, the "big rig" sites are among the largest we've seen and the services are all more than adequate. There are two laundries, both with more than average washers and dryers. We didn't see the "permanent" sites mentioned by others. That doesn't mean they aren't there, but we weren't bothered by them if they were near us. We had to leave two days early because of an emergency and they refunded to us one night's costs, which they did not have to do, but we appreciated. The only negative is that the sites are all gravel, with no grass in between, and if, as it did when we were there, it rains heavily, they tend to puddle extensively. It is definitely a family park and we were there on a holiday weekend, so there were a large number of children, which some people might find off-putting, but we weren't bothered. We would definitely come back here, despite the somewhat pricey rate. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
