2 Parks near Glenwood Springs, Colorado

The park could certain use some sprucing up. No place hardly at all to walk pets and the park is VERY steep throughout. Many sites are at very steep angles and obviously an older park, but will accommodate larger rigs. The driveway in is also very steep. That said, probably best bang for the buck in the area, especially for short term. - 7 on the road

What a little gem! Harken back to RV campgrounds of the 1950's. Shaded camp sites at various levels added privacy. Friendly and helpful office. Great Wi Fi reception. A couple of cautions: (1) It is a bit of a hike up to the office, restroom, and showers. (2) Don't trust your GPS to find Ami's Campground. Call for directions, then it makes sense and is easy to find on Hwy 6. We stayed only one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. - arascal

This is our second stay at this campground. The tiered camp sites are nice but they are narrow and steep grade getting to the site. Water has an unpleasant taste. Make sure to bring your own drinking water. Wifi is only available at the bath house. - gartail

I was a bit concerned after reading through the reviews & the much discussed manager (I think he is one of the owners) but was relieved to find the staff was very helpful and courteous although they were well rehearsed in 'once your payment is processed there is are no refund' & 'we are sorry you are having trouble with the wifi, here is a password for the laundry room wifi or you may ENJOY the internet at the No Name Bar and Grill'. The implication here is there is no service guarantee or apologies. The camp wifi has an intentional filter on it - works great to access the park's own website & sometimes to download email, but everything else is filtered (verified with a scanner). Clearly the claim of wifi misrepresents the service. At least the Bar doesn't mind if you don't buy anything while you use a table. The whole place seems owned by the same people although everything in the park has a different legal name (bar, campground, rafting outfit, zipline) I assume all for some tax or legal liability setup.
The back in full sites are spacious but everything is gravel, some trees give some shade, summer afternoons can be hot. Sewer drains are oddly placed at the front of the site rather than back where dump valves are so I (and others) had to make a stop to buy another 10' of sewer hose to reach. They have no cable and local air channels are limited to a couple children's channels, PBS and some rerun UHF channels.
The lower campsites (smaller rigs) are right on the river and quite beautiful but very closely packed together and just across the river is the train track. Not a problem up the hill where we were but definitely a trade off for being next to the river. They have some cute cabins along the river. You could fish right from your campsite if inclined.
Pluses: Location - the canyon is beautiful. Access for big rigs is good both for backing in and turning around. - TX Fifth wheel

Biggest ripoff in 25 years of RV'ing. There is no wi-fi unless you go to the bar (buy drinks). Spotty cell service, dusty and dirty. Not big rig friendly as advertised, water and sewer are at the front of your site on the road!
In addition to $58. per night add $5.00 for each person over 2 including kids and $5. for each pet, but no pet walking area. There is no grass anywhere. The only thing truthful about their web site is the high prices, but there is no value for the price. We would never be back. - Chuck F

Nice park and some sites on the Colorado River but the views from the other sites aren't bad either. Good Wifi. Site we stayed in was spacious and clean. There are trees at the back of the sites we stayed in and the hookups are clear in the back so you either have a choice of hookups or satellite. There is no cable. Of course, if you have long hoses/electrical cord no issues. We would stay here again. - Steve & Terri
