Very nice clean park, large site, we stayed in the FHU in the back of the park. No cable and few tv channels, wifi ok. Would stay here again.

Bull Moose were down by the stables. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful area. Campsite was clean, with plenty of space. Beautiful views and very nice walking trails. A lot to do here. Horseback riding, buggy rides, a convenient little store. Location was so convenient. Only a couple of miles to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and a few miles away from Granby marina and restaurants. The really nice part was it was rustic so we got the feeling of "camping" with all of the conveniences. We were on a month-long trip from the east coast and this was one of our favorite campgrounds. We were in the first small loop, which had adequate space for us, but those who want more privacy, there are plenty of more spacious and secluded sites. Plan early...they stay pretty booked. Staff is very friendly and helpful! We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We love this RV campground. The campground is right outside of Rocky Mountain NP west entrance and wildlife roams nearby (elk, moose). The campsides are big and level and most have some shade. There's horseback riding, camp store, etc. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We had originally planed to stay at another park but we told that we have to stay in a parking lot because it was Labor Day weekend, so at the last minute in desperation we called Winding River, and it turned out to be a jewel of a park with plenty of room between sites. Very family friendly with a cookout on Saturday night and a cowboy breakfast on Saturday morning, horseback rides and many activities for the entire family. The (very small) Colorado River is a short distance away and they had a wonderful Cowboy church on the riverbank Sunday morning. It borders Rocky Mountain National Park and it is close to the very touristy town of Grand Lake. About the only thing that kept it from being a "10" is a very small laundry with only 2 washing machines. There may be more in a building somewhere else but that's all we could find. The staff was very friendly and the entire park is a winner. One word of caution: our GPS was miles away from the actual location, but in their defense we were warned not to trust the GPS when we made reservations. Don't know why it was so far off, but trust them when they give specific instructions and tell you the GPS is wrong. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Various types of campsites, from rugged tent to spacious pull-throughs for large rigs. For RVs, sites are gravel with easy to use hook-ups. Excellent Wi-Fi. They have special facilities for horses and ATVs. Adjacent to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake area has three large lakes for boating and fishing. If you like hiking, you are in paradise. Only weakness is muddy roads after a rain. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The back pull-through spots are very quiet. However, they are not level. There were potholes and ditch marks in sites 119-129. I saw one big rig with its front wheels off the ground. Our site was 4" off level sideways. Otherwise this was a nice park. The view of the Indian Peaks Wilderness is spectacular. All the pine trees in the area are dead, so the scenery isn't that great. You cross the bridge and you are in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The restrooms are dated but clean. Moose and elk right near the RV park. They had a road grader smooth out the interior roads, I don't know why they didn't work on the pull through spots. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is wonderful! It is very large and scenic. All people that work here are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of activities and fantastic access to Rocky Mountain National Park. Easy access and roads. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it as often as we can! I am not sure of the rate we paid, but it was totally worth whatever it was!!!!

Stayed ten days over 4th of July. Activities were great and nearness of Rocky Mountain National Park was outstanding as was the general setting. The FHU "meadow" was a dusty parking lot right on top of your neighbor. We opted for W + E site, which were more spacious (almost as dusty, though) and with a bit of a view. Dump station was handy enough and good. Laundry facilities were minimal with 2 washers and 2 dryers for 150 sites! As dusty as everything was, this was woefully lacking. Wi-Fi was almost non-existent. The staff was generally good with a couple of clinkers. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Convenient to Grand Lake and helpful staff. The power to the entire site was down without warning and internet access was unreliable. When it was up, it was good, but it went down and stayed down often We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

This campground is sort of a cross between a dude ranch and an RV park. There are lots of great activities for families: horseback riding, chuck wagon dinners and breakfasts, petting farm, fishing, etc. The park caters to horse owners and there are many sites with corrals for campers who bring their horses and ride the many trails. The park is bounded by the North Fork of the Colorado River and Rocky Mtn Natl Park. You can rent ATV's, go hiking into the Park, see moose: all without leaving the park. Sites with sewer are limited to about 5 or 6 near the front of the park and 30 or so in the back of the park in a meadow. The meadow sites were not attractive to us and we were lucky enough to stay up front. There's no mowing of grass so the sites tend to be overgrown. They were also uneven and tough to get level in our big rig. The roads are dirt and not well maintained; lots of pot holes and rough spots. Nevertheless, Winding River is well-managed, full of friendly staff and located in a beautiful spot. We stayed here in our big rig and would stay again. One note: If you forward mail to this resort, you must use General Delivery in Grand Lake as the Postmaster there will return mail addressed to individuals at Winding River Resort. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a great time staying at this RV park. We rode horses, ate the pancake breakfast and had a great time walking are dogs around on the grounds. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would recommend this park and stay there again. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is hard to rate. The facilities are good, clean restrooms & showers with lots of activities including horses and ATV,s. The RV sites are close together while the other sites are very spacious. Also, the park needs about a train load of gravel. Our site was a muddy goo as were some of the roads. If they put some (lots) gravel down the park would be an 8 or 9 but as a muddy goo a 6 is generous. We will look for a different park in the Rocky Mountain National Park area. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. Saw moose & weather was fine. The park roads were rutted & potholed. Lots of mud. The FHU sites were large but unkept. Tall grass and lots of weeds. Restrooms & showers were clean & nice. Staff was friendly but they were rarely in our area to clean up sites. The Wi-Fi was pretty sad. Worked intermittently.

The location,choice of hook-up types,and horse corrals are the main reasons to stay here. We did not like the lack of any real shade and the many uneven and muddy sites. Yes, you will see moose, but way too many ATV's bring you back to reality. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
