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!!!! We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 has a rustic, ranch-type environment, which our family came to greatly enjoy. Kid- and pet-friendly. Set up for horse campers also. Very large spread-out park. The restrooms/showers/laundry toward the back of the property near the ATV rentals appeared newer than those at the office. Very nice and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a minor repair request for our site, which was done quickly. This park has stables offering one and two-hour rides at a reasonable charge. Horses in good condition and the wrangler we had leading our ride was an experienced horse person and very good at taking care of the riders. There did seem to be a fly problem around the stable and the petting pens. We stayed in the full hook up area which did not have any shade and no privacy; however, it was not an issue for us because most people (including us) were gone during the day. Yes, there are no paved roads, which did get a little dusty (until a light rain). Due to this being a horse-friendly park, there would be horse droppings to dodge on the roads, but staff cleaned the roads regularly. And, yes, the pine beetle has done damage to the pine trees in this entire area of Grand Lake, but there is still lots of beauty to be enjoyed. We did not participate in the ice cream socials, wagon rides or pancake breakfast, but did attend the Sunday morning Cowboy Church which was a blessing. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

Very nice campground with sites a good distance apart. Very convenient location to Rocky Mountain National Park. Some shaded sites, but not many due to the large number of trees in the area that are dying due to the pine beetle. Restrooms were kept fairly clean. Showers each in their own little room, allowing for extra privacy. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Moose frequently seen here! We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

We arrived after driving through Rocky Mountain National Park. The directions were coming in from the south off of I-70, but the signage for the campground is good either way. The mile and a half road from 34 is in need of repair, and as is the road in the campground: frequently potholed and muddy. FHU sites are ample and surprisingly level. We had quite a bit of rain the first few days and it was muddy. To the camps credit, they got out the grader and did some work. Maybe all the horses are why they don't pave? The dead pines all over the area from pine beetles took the bloom off the rose for us. We were last here in '97 before all the devastation. We had family staying at the Grand Lake Lodge about 2 - 3 miles away, so we kept busy and enjoyed the area for six days. Grand Lake is a 10 - 15 minute drive and well worth the daily trip for us. Do not miss the Addams Falls. Breath-takingly beautiful!! Good FHUs, adequate if uneven cell (T-Mobile) and Wi-Fi reception. Rate reflects AAA discount. We would return, but not without watching the extended weather forecast first. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Fantastic location right next to the Rocky Mountain National Park with the Colorado River running right through the resort. A real ranch experience with horse stables and great rides. We chose the large sites in the forested section for the space between sites, 50 amp service, and the gorgeous wild flowers everywhere. There are some full hookup sites for long term stays at the back of the resort, but we were fine without sewer hookups for a week. Large elk meadow 1/2 mile away with herds daily. Great access to National Forest for off-roading or hiking. Had an adolescent moose walk right beside the motorhome one day but the best sight was the huge bull moose which calmly walked through the campground. You can call the sites: rustic. No paving or fancy patios, but picnic tables and fire pits and water faucets. This is our favorite type of camping. It is very much like a COE campground. Service was friendly, great breakfasts and ice cream. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Motorhome.
