Just stayed one night. Several permanent residents/older coaches. Very quiet - close to the highway, but the road noise was minimal. Sites are narrow and not very level; even our auto leveler could not manage to get us level. Staff was friendly. - vanvfam

This campground is located off of Interstate 70 in Glenwood Springs, Co. The office manager was friendly, efficient and led us to our site. Most of the park residents are long term and live in older, run-down trailers. The approach to the park is steep as is the interior roads. The site was level and long enough for my tow. The utilities worked fine. Very few amenities here and the noise from I-70 (200 yds away) was loud. It worked ok for one night or may do well as a base camp for all the activities in the local area. It felt like living in a trailer park. This place will do in a pinch, but would recommend checking out other places if you need more than a place to "crash". - jl2000

The friendly and conscientious host (owner?) is very welcoming and provides area information as well as escort to your site. Interior roads are steep, rough and pot-holed. Sites are narrow, gravel, level terraced areas cut into the hillside. Mature trees provide shade at many sites. Many units appear to be old and permanent. Electric worked well, water pressure was low but okay, wi-fi was good, AT&T phone and data signals were fairly good in the area. Though we managed to enter and exit without mishap in our 39' fifth wheel the park is iffy for big rigs. - never settled

"RESORT" it is not!! RV sites are extremely close together including slides close to cabin doors. Sites are gravel with very little maintenance. Office manager and staff were rude! We arrived earlier than the 2:00 check in time and were told we had to leave and come back on or after 2:00 pm so their maintenance people could prepare the site for us. During our 3 day stay, there was no maintenance preformed on any rv sites! We were also charged $5 per day for each dog although no dog area was provided! We booked online and were told that sites were not assigned until arrival, which was not the truth. Extremely expensive for what the so called "Resort" provided. - NvRver

I can concur with most of the reviews about the poor location of the hookups, so be sure to plan accordingly. The location and outdoor offerings are fantastic so perhaps that's the reason for the high price. There was no cable at our site - 108 - but I didn't really mind. The temperature was ideal at 72 degrees and we didn't use our air conditioner. The laundry only has two apartment style stacked washer and dryer units which needs to increase due to all of the outdoor activities. Bring loads of quarters as these appliances are expensive. This location was a treat because of the canyon and river scenery but I am not convinced it was worth the admission fee. Also, we were travelling in a 25 ft. rig. - KC8RXQ

The good and the bad...This park could be a rated as excellent, but because of some design flaws is just average. We pulled in with our MH and were surprised to be told immediately that our money was nonrefundable as soon as we signed the reservation paperwork. I thought that was strange, but when we drove to our site, it became all too apparent. The sites are somewhat narrow, not at all level, and not well laid out. Every site I looked at had the electric at the very back of the site, the water in the middle, and the sewer was in the front of the site. If you don't have 30 foot of sewer hose, you can wait until you leave, like we did, and dump by pulling forward out of the site, until your hose can reach. You will also need some boards to get your coach somewhat level. Not wanting my front wheels off the ground kept us walking uphill to the rear of our coach while we were here. Other than those things, the campground is in a great location, is quiet, and the scenery is spectacular. The staff was very helpful and courteous, and even changed their minds about not letting us stay here with our German Shepherd, although they charged us and additional $5 for the Shepherd and $5 for a 5 lb. Papillion. I definitely thought the price was out of line with the facilities available. Hopefully, the owners will reconsider the layout of the sites and improve upon their usability. We will probably drive right past this place on our return trip. - WhiskeyMan

This is a lovely little park that is extremely well run by 2 sets of camp hosts. They are very attentive and will help in any way they can. The sites allow for a private outdoor setting with your own picnic area. The park would be a 9 if it did not have the road noise. The highway proximity does make for a good bit of that. Being on the bike path and so close to the river make up for the traffic. - rickimcm

The City of Carbondale has recently taken over what used to be called the Mount Sopris RV Park. Sewer connections are difficult to reach. Lots of traffic noise from Highway 133 and Highway 82. Access to park is difficult and not marked on Highway 133. There is only a green RV sign with an arrow. I'm sure this park will improve with time. Good cell coverage. Convenient location. - silverfox9

We had back-in site right next to the river. Absolutely gorgeous. Morning sun. Great fireplace to sit around at night. No cellphone coverage but good WiFi most of the time. Dump station. - Kiwijo

Check in was ok. Thought we were getting river front, but there was a problem. Got a nice, big, level, kind of shady pull thru. Very nice park next to the river. Well kept, nice staff. Newer restrooms & showers. No dump at sites but they have honey wagon service available if your booked for 3 nights. Very nice service. We didn't swim but lots of folks used the pool. Lots of road noise during the day, but very little traffic at night. We would stay here again. - Tredguy

We had a beautiful back-in patio site next to the river. This is a campsite you can actually "hang out" at. We spent hours sitting by the river while the kids played. Sites are gravel and may require some leveling. Laundry machines are new. The store has ice cream and toys like bubble wands. There are no sewer hookups (park is right on the river); there is "honey wagon" service for stays of more than 3 days only. - Rpodder2

The CG is off the beaten path. We didn't like the first brush, but the second tour we found a site next to a small stream. The RR look to be clean, but we have not used them yet. Mostly cabins and sites were used by workers. The office hours were limited, but manageable. Good for an overnight. - Dennis D

Where do I start...first let me say we did not stay here, after driving at least 7 miles off the highway to this hole in the wall campground I felt the need to let other people know not to waste their time. You take a drive throw an area with some nice homes, then you come to a very narrow road that is really not suited for large RV's. Then to a turn into the "campground" you have to go down a steep dirt driveway, we parked and walked around at about 12:30 on a Friday in July office closed and NO one came out to greet us, but I was not surprise because I called on the way and recording said office was only open till 10:00 a.m. what in July... After walking the campground we found it in very poor condition, power boxes broken and just hanging from many sights. This campground has not been taken care of in some time, sadly because it's in a very nice spot on the river.
Their web site say's they have a Wheelers 5 star rating and Woodall's 4 star, clearly NO one has been to this campground in years to rate it. The pictures you see on their web site do NOT look one bit like I found this campground to be in Mid July 2015. - laears

We had made reservations in January 2014 for a one night stay in August 2014. We requested a pull-thru for our 36' fifth wheel. We arrived rather late (8:30 PM) and tired after an 11 1/2 hour drive from Arizona. When we arrived, the office was closed and a set of instructions had been left for us. Our site was way too small for the size of our rig, the site was very unlevel on ungroomed dirt and the hookups were all in the wrong places requiring us to select either electric or water for the night. We selected electric so at least we would have power to the fifth wheel RV. The water hookup could not be found without the use of a flashlight; it was literally located in scrub and long meadow grass that had not been cleared in some time. I used the shower facilities to wash my hands, and when I entered the men's facilities, it was filthy with water everywhere including the sink counters, and toilet paper, paper towels, and empty toiletry containers everywhere - not a place where I would take a shower! All of this for $55.00 per night, thus not a place where we would return. Beware, the photos on Elk Creek Campground are not actual photos of the place. They are only advertisement photos of hikers and fishermen. This place is better suited for tent campers and dry camping in small rigs. We would never return here! - broncobillyaz

This is a nice campground if you are looking for something close to the interstate with full facilities. It wasn't our thing because of the interstate noise and too far away from Glenwood for a good base camp. - RosalitaAS

Right off I 70. Check in was great as desk staff was very thorough about amenities, rules, etc. She even told us that the water pressure is high and let us borrow a pressure regulator. We had a spacious level, full hookup, pull-thru site. Roads are wide enough for big rigs. Cable tv is included, wifi did not work well. Pool and hot tub are available, lounge area has comfy couches and tv. Camp store is small, has some supplies and snacks. Nice playground and dog run. There are even tepees you can camp in! Road noise was tolerable. Would stay here again. - mohocamper

Spent a week here, in several different sites.
The good - friendly staff, new and clean place, practically on the river. Very nice clubhouse and super clean restrooms. Best place in the area. We were climbing up in the Rifle canyon, and needed WiFi at night and in AM.
The bad - Right on I-70, although spots furthest from freeway not bad on noise. Poor workers at desk baffled by computer system, so bring your patience if other than a simple one night transaction. Management doesn't yet have policies to "school" bad dog owners at registration. Had to educate one myself after enduring endless barking one AM.
Overall, very nice stay and would be happy to repeat. - Phx24J

I ended up here for 2 nights because of a screwed up reservation at another campground. Very expensive campground with little to offer. Road noise is present most of the time. Wifi was okay but dropped quite a few times. My Verizon signal was poor. The electricity voltage was low: dropped as low as 107 but never got higher then 112.
Over the air TV stations came in fine during the day but half dropped out at night. (They no longer have cable.) There are mostly permanents and seasonal campers here. Maintenance appears to be nonexistent as there was leaves from last year blowing around ,as well as twigs and small branches from the trees. - jnateg

Initially it was difficult to "see" beyond the MANY awful permanent resident RVs that were visibly in VERY poor condition and VERY run down - initially it was very uncomfortable. Have never before seen a park that allows permanent residents' RVs to be such eye-sores, however, if you can get beyond the initial shock, which we eventually did, the water, sewer, and electrical were a-ok as was the location for exploring the Aspen area. - God Bless America

I'll preface this by saying I usually don't reserve a site in a park that doesn't have current reviews, but we wanted to be near Aspen/Snowmass Village and this CG in Basalt is the closest park with full hook-ups that can accommodate a motorhome. It is a small, older CG with narrow, tight, close gravel sites. We were in a pull-thru next to a few other motorhomes that were so close there was barely room to park the toad between. Water, electricity and cable worked fine. For us, this was just a place to park our RV while we spent time in a really beautiful area of CO. This park served our purpose. - jacksup1212

This is a good stop on I-70. It's a well kept rustic park along a rushing stream. I gave the service a 2 because there was no management on site although he was accessible by phone. Wifi was good. No reservations were accepted, just first come first served. I'd stay here again. - RVerMJ

This park was shall we say "interesting". We have a 40' Motorhome and when I pulled in I thought oh oh and the interior appeared narrow and from where I parked I wasn't sure I could get out. That and there was no one in the office and it seemed like no one was about. Finally we found a live person who could check us in. There is a nice office/club house with a nice deck and fire pit. The rest of the park had mostly permanent and seasonal residents but they were clustered at one end. The interior roads proved fine for our size and our site was adequate but was a bit short. Gravel throughout. It was OK for one night and we probably stay again on a future trip. - jeffnbarb

This place has potential. It is in a beautiful setting. There is a wonderful deck off the back of the office. The grounds are nicely laid out. Trees have been planted. Restrooms & showers are nice & individual rooms. No sewer hookup at sites but the dump station is easy access. The sites are far from level. I'm not sure why they are adamant about using pads under levelers since this asphalt is not worth saving. The grounds map shows a river front lounge area but we did not check this out. There are not many RV park options in this area. This is an option with easy access from I-70. - 2togoNebraska

Another beautiful Colorado State Park. Park is an easy drive from Rifle. Wi-Fi access ends about a quarter mile from the Rifle Gap dam. Pick your site carefully if you want a lake view from your site. The road to the CGs are narrow but the road within the CGs are wide. Sites are well maintained and clean. All utilities worked fine. - jnateg

Beautiful view from the Lake view Loop. Could be a bit exposed if windy or bad weather. Lovely clean sites, well maintained. Be aware you need to pay an additional $7.00 a day park fee on top of your camping fee. But it does give you access to Rifle Falls Park as well as Rifle Gap park when you go exploring. - AdrianaW

We stopped here for a quick overnight and fell in love with this state park. To be clear, it's a ways off of I-70. To get to it requires traveling a windy and sometimes narrow road with some very sharp turns. It makes for some interesting times in a 40' class A motorhome. But the drive is worth it!!!
The park is one of the nicest state parks we've ever camped in. Check in was a breeze. The site itself was a pull through and the pad was concrete. The utility hookup was very clean with all the utilities either in a concrete box or in very clean and raked gravel.
The picnic table is covered by a small pavilion which is located on a gravel pad. I was amazed that even the gravel pad had been raked prior to our arrival.
The only reason that this park is not rated a "10" is because there is no shade. Still, this is an absolutely beautiful park located on the lake. I'll be back. - Maddog11

5 days, 4 nights. Campground itself is gorgeous, falls are beautiful, lots of deer, also saw turkeys, muskrats, hawks and fish. Nice grass, trees dispersed, electric but no water. Campsite surface was gravel, mostly shady, and included a fire ring and picnic table.
More of a city park atmosphere than a camping atmosphere. Tons of traffic every day driving by your campsite to go up the road 100 yards from the campsites to the parking area for the falls. Falls are lovely. Traffic all day & half the night with screaming kids, loud stereos and barking dogs are not my idea of camping. My dog is trained not to bark while camping unless something serious happens. These people were just rude & totally unconcerned with the noise they were making. I will not return. - VickieB68

There are only 13 RV sites and 7 tent sites, so we felt the need to book online, which costs $10. Then you have to pay a $7 day use fee, which makes it a bit expensive at $39 altogether. The place is very attractive with grass and trees and the sites are very spacious, 8 pull through loops and four back ins. There is no TV (or internet, but didn't expect that) and the restrooms are just vault toilets. The trail to the waterfall continues on past a cave and up to the top of the falls, worth the walk. We also did the squirrel trail. It's a 12 mile drive after you turn off the I-70 but worth it. - Arthur and Freda

This S.P. is immaculate! Grass was mowed and cared for better than most peoples lawns. Sites were level, tables good, electric was fine. This is NOT a party park so you will get a good nights' sleep. We will go back. - number one
