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. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Call ahead for accurate rates! We'd planned for a two day stay in Glenwood Springs on the way home, based on their Website's quoted Off Season rate of $40.00. The price upon check in was actually $63.80. Also be prepared to pay $5.00 per dog, as is stated on their website. Although stated, it is a very unusual extra nightly cost. Their off season rate had been changed to peak season about a month ago, according to the front desk employee. This isn't peak season anywhere in the mountains of Colorado and there are very few guests. This is false advertisement. Their sites are not set up to be user friendly as their water and septic are at the front of the site, while the electric is in the back. Overall extremely dismayed at paying 72.39 per night for parking in a gravel parking lot, and that's with a 10% Good Sam discount. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here just for an overnight stay, and this campground was excellent for that. Pretty expensive, but what a view! We were in the "upper" area for larger rigs. Our site was level and easy to setup in. I did have to use two lengths of sewer hose to reach the connection, but that's why I carry two sections. I would stay here again of passing thru this area.

This is an OK park. Just off interstate and one exit from city of Glenwood Springs but expensive for what you get. Bathrooms clean but not great. Wi-Fi lousy even though they put us 3 sites from the on-site restaurant with its own Wi-Fi signal. It is on the river and has boating and zip line activities on site. Staff not overly friendly or helpful. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

This RV park/campground is centered around river raft trips which are operated right next to the RV sites. There is a lot of traffic in and out and people drive through the RV sites continually. They have a restaurant/grill on the other side of the RV sites and they even have semi trucks delivering to the grill right through the road that goes between RV sites. The river is not accessible other than to look at as there is no beach area. One nice thing is that there is a very long biking/hiking trail that begins right next to the RV park. On the negative side, they charge extra for pets, there is no cable TV, no laundry room, and no swimming pool so the price is quite high. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

It is OK as a campground but not even close to a resort. The river sites are for tents or very small campers. We have a 42' motorhome, we were given a site on the "Big Rig" hill, back-in 80'. Not even close to 80', maybe 60'. Awning hit the tree branches, only choice we had otherwise couldn't open the front slide. Sites are marked off by medium size boulders and small boulder type rock all around the site. My adult daughter tripped on a boulder and sprained her ankle. There is no dog walk. The big attraction is the ease of getting rafting arrangements, zip line and rock climb wall on the property. Outdoor restaurant, very expensive, onion rings $9.95, ice cream bar was $4 in the store. Wi-Fi on the hill worked OK but very slow. Hot Springs pool close by, short drive to Aspen. Price reflects $5 a day charge for each dog and one extra person. Since we stayed weekdays Monday-Wednesday, it is overpriced. It is a tourist town but if you get away from the main intersection there are some fast food restaurants. This is not an overnight stay place, if you enter the park after dark you will not be able to figure out how to get around. It is a good family place for the kids and teens if they don't fall on the boulders! Won't be back. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

This resort has a great location, right along the Colorado River and convenient to town, looks tired and a little worn though. From a resort point of view, it has rafting and zip lining, deluxe and basic cabins as well as RV and tent sites. We stayed in our 26 ft travel trailer at one of the riverfront sites. The first thing I noticed in our site on arrival was an old shower sandal that looked like it was sitting there for awhile. These sites are quite narrow with our awning almost touching the trailer next to us. The sites are also really short. We managed to fit but ideally I would think 20 ft or less would be better. The riverfront sites offer water/electric but no sewer, not a biggie for a couple of days. There are sites up the hill that are full service and accompany larger RVs. I would stay in one of those next time, just because of size. Unfortunately the full service non river sites don't have a fire pit. Our site did but I was a little concerned the smoke from our fire would go in the neighbor's trailer due to how small the sites are. As for maintenance the park isn't horrible but looks like it could be a little better maintained. Bathrooms are cleaned three times a day but those nearer the river sites appear to be in need of an upgrade and more thorough cleaning staff. They just don't look or smell clean. I noticed the other set of bathrooms that have the laundry and internet cafe are much nicer. The thing we really didn't like though was when we reserved we had to pay for our entire stay; most places we stay just ask for first night's deposit. In addition to full payment, refunds aren't given if you cancel or check out early. Like most places around here the price is fairly expensive but that's too be expected in a tourist area. For the price I was expecting a little more polished. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have been in the park for about an hour and just got our coach somewhat level. I should have listened to the other reviewers and gone somewhere else. When you arrive they give you a stack of papers to sign. The first being a list of all the rules and you have to initial each one and sign at the bottom. Feels like your signing for a mortgage instead of 3 days camping. Our site was so unlevel on the driver side that our front our left wheel was off the ground. We had to place our jack pads under the wheel to get anywhere near level. Then we tried to hook up the sewer hose. We have 35 ft of hose but were short since the sewer connection is in the very front of our lot away from all other connections. We have been traveling for 2 1/2 months and this is the 1st time we have been greeted by someone with an attitude. After signing all the papers we asked if our mail had arrived. The answer was I'm sure it's not here or I would know and he walked away. I asked for information on activities. He said you already have our brochure. But here's another one. When we decide on activities in the canyon we will go out of the park and give our money to someone else. I gave the park a 2 and not a 1 based on the views and nothing else. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Yes, it is a resort. It has very nice suites and cabins. The RV park looks like they just decided to throw it into the mix. Sites are stone and mostly level. We had no problem backing into our site. A nice stone buffer area between sites, but with sporadic picnic tables. We had weeds. We are in a 40 ft. RV and the electric box was behind the back wheel and the water was at the front wheel and the sewer was in front of the coach. We did not have enough sewer hose to hookup. If you are into rafting and other sports you'll probably love it here. We were in site 109 and we had WiFi. They have a No Name Bar & Grill that we thought would be a nice place to have a glass of wine and dinner. It's picnic style tables on open deck, which was nice, if they'd been clean. Tables were "beer" sticky. Food was not great. We only stayed one night and I think it was way overpriced for the quality of the park. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 6 nights in a RV. Great location close to town. Great views of the canyon. Some train noise at night but didn't seem to bother us, we have stayed at this park before. Nice bar and grill in the park. Zip-lines and water rafting on the property. The power and water worked well. The sewer was hard to get to but we managed OK. The bathrooms were dirty and had broken stalls not good for the amount of people staying at the park. The other problem with the restrooms is they are shared with the rafters and are very crowded during rafting hours. The sites had lots of weeds, but were spaced nicely. Because it is shared with a rafting company we had rafters walking through our site and the sites around us, security is not what we have seen in past years. In the evenings there are lots of camp fires making it very smokey. Because of the crowds and smoke we will be look for another RV park on our next trip to Glenwood Springs. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Built into a hillside. Clean and modern bathrooms. The staff could be a little bit more accommodating. When I walked in to register, I got the feeling I was interrupting something. They charged $5.00 for my Jack Russell Terrier and taxed that! Not sure that is on the up and up. Be sure to by Ice before you get there. They have the record for the most expensive 8 pound bag at $4.68 a bag. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park if a little tight for big rig. Don't trust GPS. They have moved entrance to make it easier to get in. If you follow GPS you end up unhooking your toad and making a hairy 16 point U-turn on the edge of a river. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice managers, easy to get in and park our rig. Part of the campground is right on the Colorado River. Restaurant and outdoor bar on the premises. Campground is right next to a wonderful bike path that goes into town (and further – toward Aspen). Manager gave us off-season rate even though we stayed through holiday weekend.

We were at the park in the middle of winter and needed electricity just to be on the safe side. It was cold and snowy and their electricity worked. The bathrooms were closed and did not use the dump station. Staff was okay, nothing good or bad. Not a good value to say the least. It is expensive for what you get. There were no other parks actually open in the area. We probably would not stay again. If we had tested out our rig for a few days before to make sure the electrical system was working correctly, then we just do not need $68 for electricity. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Truck Camper.

First the good....close to the river and Glenwood springs. Water pressure good. Now the not so good....WAY OVERPRICED for what you get and calling itself a resort. Concur on all previous reviews regarding sewer, dusty, noisy. Pay up front, no refunds. I can see why. It is pretty here in the canyon, but it does not compensate for the poor sites. I normally do not go into the bathrooms, but wanted to see them for my review. Although fairly clean, very old in need of updating. We are full-timers, and see a lot of RV parks. I am fairly lenient on them, but due to the high price of this one, it did not meet my expectation of a reputable resort. We would not stay here again. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.
