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. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Lovely park, but very steep with sharp turns. I did see some big rigs manage it but my driving skills wouldn't be up to the task.

Tables at each site were tall with no chairs. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Considering there are few camp options around Glenwood, this facility offers the most for one's money. It was built years ago with a vision by the current owner's dad, back in the day when RV'ers had a Buick and a canned ham trailer, so yes, the sites aren't (and can't be made into) very friendly to today's 100 ft diesel pusher with a boat and a Harley...

It's a campground built years ago on the side of a mountain, pretty remarkable. If your expectations can be lowered some from comparing it to a facility built last year, you will relax and enjoy. As far as location, you are within biking distance to everything Glenwood offers. There are lots of walk/bike trails. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.
