Well, we just paid $80 for one night at this "resort" (2 people + 2 dogs) the most we've ever paid for a site in 2 years on the road. This begs the question - what makes an "RV resort" different from a gravel parking lot sandwiched between the freeway and the railroad tracks? Amenities! Unfortunately, when we arrived on Labor Day at 430 pm, there was literally no staff on site. No restaurant, no bar, no office, no host, no zipline, no raftng...no one! The campsite is small, gravel, dirty, trash in the bushes, dog poo etc. The next day the office person gave us no discount despite the fact that nothing advertised on their website was open. There are only 2 things that save this place at all - the CDOT bike trail is awesome, and the hike up No Name Creek cannot be beat. Both of these attractions are accessible from the FREE parking 100' from the "resort." Never again, there are better alternatives in this area. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

I would have liked this place better if it weren't priced so high. Not worth what they charge for it. $60 plus $7 for kids over 5 yrs. It's just a parking lot with some fun things to do. You can't see the river from the sites unless you're tent camping. The staff was friendly. It was very clean and well maintained. Fun things to do (zip line, ropes course, rafting) but neither of my kids were big enough to participate in any of them. But that didn't stop them from charging extra for my 6 year old. There was a playground at least. There's a wi-fi hot spot you have to walk to. Not sure why they did it that way since I could pick up their private office signal just fine from our site. A good wifi signal would have helped justify the cost some. Location is very convenient to Glenwood Springs. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

"RESORT" it is not!! RV sites are extremely close together including slides close to cabin doors. Sites are gravel with very little maintenance. Office manager and staff were rude! We arrived earlier than the 2:00 check in time and were told we had to leave and come back on or after 2:00 pm so their maintenance people could prepare the site for us. During our 3 day stay, there was no maintenance preformed on any rv sites! We were also charged $5 per day for each dog although no dog area was provided! We booked online and were told that sites were not assigned until arrival, which was not the truth. Extremely expensive for what the so called "Resort" provided. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I can concur with most of the reviews about the poor location of the hookups, so be sure to plan accordingly. The location and outdoor offerings are fantastic so perhaps that's the reason for the high price. There was no cable at our site - 108 - but I didn't really mind. The temperature was ideal at 72 degrees and we didn't use our air conditioner. The laundry only has two apartment style stacked washer and dryer units which needs to increase due to all of the outdoor activities. Bring loads of quarters as these appliances are expensive. This location was a treat because of the canyon and river scenery but I am not convinced it was worth the admission fee. Also, we were travelling in a 25 ft. rig. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Glenwood Canyon Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Rafting trips right on site a short walk across the parking lot. Guides were good, safety conscious and equipment was in good condition.

Bike rentals in town can take you up the the canyon for a 16 mile downhill ride. Beautiful scenery.

Safeway, City Market (Kroger), Walmart in town. Lots of good restaurant choices nearby, Near some of best flyfishing rivers in the country.

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.
