Driving in uphill, the host was very pleasant and happy to make suggestions for Glenwood Springs attractions and for our next nights stop south of here. Parking downhill from the office, all sites are close together with no trees/scrubs between the gravel sites. The terraced layout means that you are not looking in another camper's window. Our pull-through site was level. Most sites are full hook-ups. Traffic noise from I-70 just down the hill can be heard when sitting outside, but is consistent and without annoying rumble-strips. Great campground to explore the area, including the Glenwood Farmers Market and Hot Spring Pool. Good Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We will return. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed two nights, one night on our way to and from the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was handy because it's right along I-70 but because of the terrain the sites are built on several levels. It was tough going up hill all the time to go the restroom and also to walk the dog. The owners were friendly but don't appear to put any money back into the park for improvements. The bathrooms especially needed remodeling. We couldn't get Wi-Fi at our site but I had a very good Verizon signal on my smartphone. We'd probably stay somewhere else if we go through the area again. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Long pull-through sites although built into the mountain were level. It was pretty tight navigating and tackling the hills. We managed with our 35' fifth wheel. We stayed for two nights. It was quiet except for the trains (no horns though). There is a short trail from the park with great views to walk the dogs. No wifi. Staff was friendly and eager to offer suggestions on what the area had to offer. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

What a view!! Although the park is short on amenities, due to the location, it is breathtaking. I love the mountains. Restrooms were clean & staff is friendly. Could not use my air card or the WiFi but wasn't surprised. It is the mountains after all. Would stay here again. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an OK campground, but seems dirty and lacks landscaping, etc. It is by no means pretty or peaceful. It smelled of trash while we were there, and the spot we were in was dusty and just seemed ill kept. A bit more cleanliness and landscaping would go a long way to make this a very nice campground. Also, the bathrooms had spiders in the corners, dust in the fans, etc. Although we enjoyed our stay and the host was very nice, it just seemed dirty to me.

A mere four miles from a bit of paradise in the largest mineral pool - Glenwood Hot Springs Pool. The campground roads are asphalt, the sites are mostly pull-through gravel, and all are stacked up the hill that is this campground. All the entire campground is cut into the mountain, so the sites are narrow and have no grass. The trees shading our trailer kept temperatures pleasant, and I enjoyed a peaceful evening outside. It was pleasant seeing the Colorado River and Horse Mountain over the top of the trailers downhill from us. The interstate highway traffic noise is consistent, somewhat muted and not annoying, and did not disturb my sleep. Lots of outdoor activities surround the area. I will return.

I would like to disagree with nearly all the negative things that have been said about Ami's Acres. Yes, it is on the side of a steep hill, but that is what makes it beautiful and gives every site a great view of the mountains and the Colorado River. During the day the noise from I-70 is loud, but at night it becomes white noise. The train doesn't toot its horn so it is a non-issue too. My one complaint is that I could not even get anything with my own WiFi hotspot and the campground hotspot is up by the office. And the owner is really nice and helpful and the campground itself is quiet. The biggest complaint from others was the water which we found to be quite acceptable and usable. I'd give it 3 stars and stay here again. Not 4 or 5 because of the lack of amenities. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

A little tough to get into, and bath house is up the hill from the sites. Appears to be lot of residents, but didn't see any issues. Host was friendly and helpful. Wi-fi is best near the office/bath house. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Interesting location - thought it might be difficult on the side of a hill but drive slow and big pull-through made it fine. We liked the terrace effect of the sites to overlook the river (superb), freeway (not too noisy), & train on other side of river (not squeaky rails or horns-so OK), plus canyon walls on both sides are wonderful. Very friendly host made us feel at home. We did not need amenities as Glenwood has more than enough to do in one stay, just get bottled water for your coffee!

Every review we read about this park was true. Unfortunately, the water was undrinkable. Very salty, and left a residue on everything! So bring your own water. The sites were very narrow with sharp turns. Had to change our site because we couldn't get into the first one. Also the bathrooms are at the top of a steep hill. You definitely got a work out going to the shower or bathroom unless you were at one of the upper sites. The men's shower lacked privacy with only a divider between stalls, and no curtain. Also no soap dispensers for hand washing. The good thing about this location was that it was close to Glenwood Springs and all the activities. Also it was beautiful being nestled in the side of a mountain. Noisy at times being close to the train and interstate but pretty! Also the owner/or manager was great. Very friendly and really tried to accommodate us. Wi-Fi restricted to office area. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good driving directions on their web site - review them and/or look at how to get to the campground in Google Earth. The roundabout right at the I-70 exit can be a little confusing. Check-in was friendly and courteous. Interior roads are asphalt and in fair to poor condition. The sites are terraced into the side of a hill and are narrow. We are in one of the "Big Rig" sites and it was plenty long for our 40' coach and 18' car hauler trailer (but we scraped the trailer tongue turning into the site. There was a bush next to our slide out (street side) in the way and we couldn't open up one of the bay doors. The campground water tastes like there was saltwater intrusion - it is really awful tasting. This is a tired old campground with many junky permanent trailers, 5th wheels and old class As 'gracing' the property. I would not stay at this campground again.

This park served our purpose as a one-night stopover with hookups. The entire campground is on a hillside meaning the sites are terraced and very close to each other. There is barely room for a small table between your RV and the drop off down to the next site. As other reviewers have noted, the turns are tight but we made it in with our 34' Class A leaving our Jeep toad hooked up. We were told that sites within 100' of the office would have Wi-Fi but it was pretty weak even though we were within that radius. We agree that the water tastes awful! Be sure to arrive with an ample amount in your fresh water tank or bring bottled water for drinking and brushing your teeth. The water is OK for flushing the toilet but that's about it. Light sleepers beware - the location is right on the interstate and the railroad is just across the river. There are a lot of what appear to be permanent residents in ancient RVs that probably haven't moved in years but we had no trouble with anyone. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We called and then e-mailed to confirm this park could take a 45 foot motorhome. They e-mailed back that they could and looked forward to serving us. We arrived and attempted to go to the assigned site. Impossible! Roads were narrow and washed out. Trees would have ripped our side and would have been VERY difficult maneuvering a way out of the camp. We went back to say we could not get in and the host was very understanding. We had to leave and find another spot 6 miles back from where they were. We sure could have saved time and fuel if we had known ahead of time. I do not recommend this site for any large rig, not matter what the size. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

It is very convenient, right off I-70 and on the outskirts of Glenwood Springs. Many of the sites are tiered, long, narrow pull throughs so for a one night stopover, we didn't even have to unhook. The office manager is extremely friendly. Could even get Dish Satellite and Verizon MiFi (despite the mountains). We have stayed here before and we will stay here again for a 1-nighter or a home to enjoy the surrounding area. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 3 nights in a tent trailer. We were hooked up to the water system and it was bad tasting water. The freeway and train noise were bothersome rising up from below the campground. The women's shower was on a short timer and left this user in the shower in the dark twice. The men's bathroom was missing doors on the stalls and on our third night there the outside bathroom door was missing. The situation prohibited us from letting an 11 year old shower on his own. This was brought to the attention at the front desk but was quickly dismissed. We would not stay here again unless we were desperate. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Tent Trailer.
