2 Parks near Glenwood Springs, Colorado
Apr 2016 - $35.00
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

Park is in a beautifully setting. the tiered sites provide everyone with great views.
However it definitely needs some work. The roads with in the campground are rutted & full of potholes, sites need to be leveled & could be wider.
Site services were easily reached and in good working order. Did not use any on the facilities such as laundry, showers, etc. - Our-Wandering-Casa

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

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 place is the most jammed we have ever experienced. Campers, tents, just 3 feet apart. Did not have septic hook ups on our site. Employees very into visiting with other employees and not providing service. In the eating area two were discussing bad customers they had to deal with. We paid for 3 nites but only stayed two. The facility is very hilly. The town is nice but pick a different RV Park. - Internetputz

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
