14 RV Parks near Grand Junction, Colorado
Apr 2017 - $28.00
Camped overnight on our way back to Niagara. Stayed here because of the closeness to restaurants, next time we'll drive the extra miles.
Really run down, dirty place. No curtains in the shower windows. Place hasn't been properly cleaned in a long, long, long time.
Permanent residents allowed to pile junk on their sites, everything you think of when you hear trailer trash. Just a couple of rules would go a long ways to improve this park. Unless you're a sadist avoid this park. Stay at the Pilot (Travel Station) down the street. - papaken

The customer service was friendly, knowledgeable about local activities and events. The facilities were clean and the grounds were well kept . We enjoyed our stay and will return on our next trip through Colorado. - Stephanie Garza

This is a mobile home park with some RV spaces. Site was almost level, did use one block under wheels. Good for an overnight stay but nothing else. Would return for an overnight. - SD75mac

Very nice. The paved site was spacious with some shade, and the restrooms and showers were clean. I had a wonderful time. I would stay in this park again. I do love Grand Junction. - Sarah rojas

Very modern with large cement pads and driveways. Utilities are very solid with good water pressure, excellent electric and good, ground-level sewer access. Our only problem was that most occupants are full-timers and not too tidy. We stayed twice, for a total of 3 weeks and never sensed any odors. The location is quiet and conveniently located. We will stay here again. - Shadezguy

This is a good overnight stop with friendly part-time staff. There is no office and you must call when you get there to find out how to check in and site number. Lots of permanent residents. A new looking campground with concrete pads but no picnic tables or grills. The turns in the campground are very tight for a 43 foot Class A. - John & Bobbie

Came to this park intending to stay 3 to 4 weeks. I called ahead and made reservations and was told if we stayed only 3 weeks we could still get the monthly rate. When we went in to pay the manager told us if we stayed for 3 weeks we would not get a monthly rate and the total cost would be over $900! We argued, but she would not budge. This park has recently been sold. There are very dilapidated RVs parked there permanently and it appeared most of the people there were on a permanent basis. We had stayed in this park previously and it was ok. It was near our sons home, so it was an ideal location for us. Needless to say we did not remain in this park. There was also construction going on so it is very dusty. The restrooms were clean but the staff, including the manager were not a friendly or accommodating. Staff could be overheard being very vocal about their disgust with the new owners and the new policies put in place. Customer service was non existent. - suzwoodard

The trains rumbled by all night long. They have a nice looking pool but no one was in it and the lady at the front desk told us it wasn't warm enough to swim in. Many of the spots are very close together, vegetation is lacking and there are many permanent residents giving this place an unsavory feel. Two out of three showers were not working in the men's restroom. We would not stay here again. - Colorado gal

This is our second stay for one month. This is probably the nicest RV park in the Grand Junction area. They work hard to maintain the common areas and spaces. Some areas have small grass patches, other spaces are gravel only. 2 dog parks, a swimming pool and a nice laundry room. We requested a move to another shadier spot after a few days, and they were very accommodating. There are many full-time residents here, but everyone seems friendly. We will use this Park whenever we visit the Grand Junction Colo area! - Explorateurs

Our second time to this RV park. We think it's one of the nicest KOAs. Staff is super friendly. Registration queue can get a little congested but staff is very quick with the check in. A small store with limited supplies. Restrooms were clean and modern. Roads were easy to navigate. Roads and sites are thick gravel. Very attractive and well maintained park. Sites are spaced nicely. Some grass. Some sites have a grill, fire pit, patio and patio furniture. We had a deluxe site, C-11, that we felt was worth the price. We think it's the nicest site in the park, an end spot with all the things mentioned above plus a six foot privacy fence and lots of grass. Two fenced pet areas. Utilities worked great. You may need extensions depending on how you park and whether you want to keep your tow hooked up. The power and water are awkwardly placed in your neighbor's patio area. WiFi was very good. Lots of cable channels. Some noise from the fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday night. - VegasVagabonds
May 2017 - $30.00
Stayed two weeks. Awesome staff hooked us up with the spring rate of stay-5-nights-get-2-free. Park is next to fairgrounds; we only heard noise a couple times (announcers, horses, and derby cars). Quiet otherwise; very few kids while we were there. Not a lot of long-term folks. You have to always turn right out of the park and if you want to head back north/west, there's a u-turn intersection just a bit down the road. We were happy here. We're unique; we have a dually truck, 40' fifth wheel, small SUV, 10x10' flat-trailer and two motorcycles. All of this fit well on regular pull thru site (not a deluxe site); we did park truck perpendicular behind 5er. Site was good gravel, not beat into the ground and not so deep it was hard to walk. Outdoor space nice with grassy area, then rocky area with BBQ/fire pit, then patio-paver section. There are mature trees in the park as well as some smaller trees; didn't hinder maneuverability or scrape RV. You're not totally on top of your neighbor, but pretty close IF your rig has slides on BOTH sides (your neighbor's awning will be a few feet from your RV). Only slightly annoying aspect of the site was the decorative fence between each site, and also the trees. It looks nice, and helps it not feel like just a big parking lot...but, our slides were millimeters away from the fence on driver's side so our passenger-side slide wouldn't be in a tree. We were not able to walk around our RV without having to hike over the fence or just walk thru neighbor's site. Also in our row only, your neighbor's hookups are just past the end of your patio area - kind of awkward. Not like that in every row. Appreciated that they let us get a package while here. WiFi was great for surfing websites, social media, email. Multiple bars of AT&T LTE. Staff was constantly working to keep place nice/improvements. Note - grass is watered with ditch-water, staff said not to let pets drink it. - FrozenWaters

Site was huge with a picnic table and fire pit. Gravel site with plenty of room. Wifi is ok, not great. Tmobile cell service worked great. - Shaughn
May 2017 - $44.00
Sites allowed a little more room side to side than the last space. Gravel roads and sites, need more gravel in sites. Located in an industrial area outside of town but close to Colorado NM and Gateway Canyon. Beautiful drives. No table. Barely enough room for 37' coach, our sm car had to be parked parallel to coach with little room to open doors. - T2P2

We really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, safe. Our site was too short for us. We couldn't park our truck at our site. - Terry and Bob Simmons

My wife and I have traveled 45k miles through 41 states in the past nine years and we have never encountered finer Customer Service than we received at Junction West RV Park.
Due to a family emergency, we had been forced to cancel most of our previously planned summer space reservations and were without a confirmed reservation for Labor Day.
While traveling north through Denver in route to Montana, my wife decided to called JW RV Park to see if they had anything available for the Labor Day weekend that would tie into a confirmed September reservation we had retained at the Grand Junction KOA. To our good fortune, Lisa answered the phone and informed my wife the park was booked full, but they had just had a cancellation and she told us to 'come on', they had a space for us. Upon arrival we were guided to our space and assisted with parking.
The park has a great view of the Grand Mesa to the west and we've seen many wonderful sunrises and sunsets during our stay.
JW has some of the largest (70 ' x 40') pull-throughs we have ever encountered with rail fence dividers between each space and nice picnic tables. The surface is gravel, but has very little dust issues due to the type of gravel used. The streets within the park are 33' wide, so there no issues for larger coaches towing. Utility connections are handy, but you will need a long coaxial cable if you require cable. The water pressure was a bit lower than we usually encounter, but nothing of concern. JW is located near I-70, but excessive noise is not an issue. There's a Love's on the access road if you require fuel and the park is located ~4 miles from numerous restaurants and grocery markets.
The Maintenance Staff is continually roaming the park conducting routine checks, up keep and improvements, but are prompt to deal with any issue you encounter during your stay.
The Owners & Staff are top notch. Great park.
Rate based on daily, weekly & monthly during our stay. Daily =$43 w/GS. - Les Gipson

We came on a Thursday. There was road construction past the welcome center right near the entrance to the park but we were waved through it. I will not repeat what almost everyone has said about the tunnel because we did not find it to be true. Our motor home is over 11 feet high and the usual width, no problem. We didn't worry about the heighth of it at all. Gorgeous views on the way to the campground. There is a visitor center for the park near the campground. There are some short hikes from there. There are no hikes from the campground itself. You will need to bike or drive to hikes that are longer.
Our site was number 43 and it was a pull through. The nice thing about it was it was set back from the road with more privacy than others. A lot of the so called sites are tiny widenings in the road barely big enough for small trailers. Another thing about the park is that those over 62 get it half price at $10.00. This is a huge discount. We didn't qualify for it and gladly paid. But there is no electric or sewer so
perhaps $20.00 is steep. The park filled up with free loaders after dark who pulled out before light.
The sites have fire rings but you can only use charcoal. My husband bought charcoal from the camp host and she told him about the Pinon nuts in the area. Seemed friendly. We took a nap in the afternoon and there was a pounding and yelling at our door which woke us up. It was the camp host who asked us if we had found any thing on our site when we moved in. She never apologized for waking us or intruding. Very weird. It's a beautiful park but the people running it are not that considerate. We had a problem about 7 years ago with a ranger coming up while we were still in our car but parked and telling us we had better not let our dogs on the trails. So because of this later incidence with the camp host we will not be back. - KSum

This is a lovely National Parks campground. That said, most of the sites are small. RVs are limited to 40 ft. Our 5th wheel is 31' plus pickup. We had to do a lot of maneuvering to get into our site. There was room for our slideouts but our steps were on the road & we had to put out reflectors. The view, however, was spectacular. Lots of low pinyon and juniper trees make the area very attractive. There is water (no hookup) and clean flush toilets but no dump site. Generators are permitted in loops A&B 8am-8pm. There is a free dump in Fruita at the Colorado visitor center. Coming up to the campground there are tunnels. In the MIDDLE they are 16'. We drove down the center line with no problem because there is not much traffic. Reservations recommended. - storms

This is a beautiful National Monument, the campground is OK. Our site, #30 was not level, most of them aren't. Also, NO utilities and you must arrive with empty septic tanks and full water tanks. The visitor center in Fruita has a dump site and fresh water available.
Generator hours are from 8am to 8pm. Do not start early or be late turning it off. Otherwise the park host will come by and tell you to turn it off. And not very nicely!
Probably will not return since we do not live in the area and now that we have seen the Monument we wouldn't not return. - Rick & Karen

The park is nicely located and offers great convenience and a variety of places to eat. The lots are pretty tightly squeezed in and do not offer much privacy. The rules are applied discriminately to the guests but, are not followed by management or employees. The management is rude and speaks to the guests as if they (management) are not accountable. After staying a few months through winter, I decided to move my Fifth Wheel in the middle of the month. I am local and paid through the month in advance. When I moved my RV they immediately put another guest in the spot and then demanded the electric to be paid even though it was still rented by me through the end of the month. When I told them I was disappointed in the way they handled the situation they told me they were disappointed that I left. I explained that the lot was still rented by me until the end of the month and technically they were in breach, they told me I had no legal grounds to keep the space. The electric bill which by no means was exorbitant at $47 was demanded immediately despite the agreement that the bill would be at the end of the month. Poor handling of a situation by management and the trailer trash employee working behind the counter. - William Herold

Typical gravel RV park, no shade, no grass, hot and dry. Wi-Fi was horrible, they kept saying it was being fixed, but never was. Had to keep going into Lowes and use theirs. But if you are liking to hike, this is the place for you. Also fast food nearby. - H Russell

We really liked this state park. Check in went fine... we had to pay an extra $7 for the park entrance fee, but knew that ahead of time. We purchased 2 bundles of fire wood which were very dry. The sites were very spacious, with low foliage to give privacy between sites. Loved our site, right along the edge, but if the day use area was full, we would have had to look at a lot of parked cars. Each site had a great fire ring, covered picnic table, and beautiful paved pad and pebble sitting area. You could see the freeway and town, but the road noise was very minimal and it was nice to be so close to it. Beautiful area. Could definitely see staying there again. Would love to explore the monument area next time. - Cindy Sue

The park itself was well located for our travels. This is our first time to stay in a Colorado park. We are from Texas and are very familiar with our state parks. Our stay in Colorado is after spending several weeks in state parks in AZ and UT. We stopped at the rv park across the street from the park entrance to get propane. While there, we unhooked our toad. When we got to the state park entrance, the woman at the visitor center informed us that we would have to pay an extra entrance fee for the car because we had detached it. She said that we could go back around and reattach and then reenter the park and not have to pay the extra fee. My husband came up during this discussion and she informed him of the RULES. I told him that this park had negative reviews on Yelp because of the customer service at the entrance. The woman at the gate then said to me so you must have known the rules since you read the reviews. We were tired at this point so I just paid the difference and we went to our campsite. The campsite itself was great. I hope that the customer service was an anomaly and not indicative of Colorado state parks. - Sherry527

This is a gem of a State Park, with very helpful and friendly staff at check in. Interior roads are nice and wide and big rig friendly, all well laid out and easy to get to sites. Our full hook up site was very spacious, with plenty of room for our towed. Our concrete pad was a long and level pull through with plenty of privacy between sites, there was some grass and shade trees. All sites have a shaded picnic table, and fire ring in a gravel area off the main pad. We had wonderful views of the mountains and it was very quiet. The bathrooms were modern and clean and the laundry was well equipped with four washers and four dryers and spotlessly clean. Very pet friendly with plenty of places to walk your pet, on a leash of course! No Wifi but cell was fine. The Colorado River is next to the park and there is also a bike path that connects to the park. Food stores, restaurants are close by, and of course the incredible Colorado National Monument is a must see! We would most definitely stay here again, the camp ground hosts work so hard to keep this park looking immaculate, this is how all parks should be run and maintained. - tobyjug

Beautiful State Park. In fact I haven't yet found a Colorado State Park I didn't like. Beautiful nature trail all along the Colorado River. It can get 100 degrees in mid-July but the mesas on both sides help hide the sun earlier and later in the day. Tip: Start your AC early, set it lower to begin with and use your awning. Verizon doesn't work well, but AT&T is pretty good. The restrooms are not as nice as in others, but they are satisfactory. The camp hosts are very nice and friendly. I will certainly return again. Nice relaxing 5 day stay. - Colorado Vagabond

Rate includes $10 transaction fee for online booking plus $7/night park fee paid upon arrival. They accept credit cards. If you plan to stay at other CO parks, you might consider buying an annual pass.
We had a pull-through site which was plenty long. Sites are well-spaced. Our site had a covered picnic table which was nice because it was quite sunny and warm mid-June.
There is a fishing pond and a (different) swimming pond. The Colorado River runs along the back of the property and there is a nice pathway for walking. The campground is "sandwiched" between two mountain walls and they are beautiful. We're told big horn sheep come down to the river but, sadly, we never saw any.
The good news is that the campground is super easy access off the 70 highway. The bad news is that the 70 highway is also sandwiched between the mountain walls so the noise is pretty constant. It didn't bother us but I could see that it might bother some especially if you're trying to sit outside and relax.
One negative is that a nearby neighbor was pretty boisterous one night until 1am. We were surprised park patrol and/or the camp host didn't shut them down. - GottaGoNow

The only draw back here was road noise! But, The scenery was incredible, and we got used to the noise. Great location for day trips around Grand Junction. Espesially up to Grand Mesa.
Sites were mostly pull through, gravel. great shelters with picnic tables at most sites. - Jeff Jangerous

I am reluctant to review this campground because now other people will know about it and I might not have it all to myself any more. Well-known to locals, it's at 8,500 feet in elevation and stays cool during the hot days in Grand Junction 4,000 feet below, which elevation gain you will achieve in only 25 miles of road. So yes, the road is steep and where it changes to gravel it gets rough: make sure every thing in your RV is battened down or it will shake loose. Campground is in an oasis populated with aspens, oaks, deer and turkeys and you can drink the water. Gets busy on weekends but camp host says it has never been full. I shall definitely camp here again. - Old Mountain Man
