This reflects RPI rate. We have a 45' totally electric motorhome. I called ahead of time to make sure they could accommodate our big rig and that we required 50 amp service. I was assured that would be no problem, so I made my reservation. Upon arrival the sites were dirt with some gravel and lots of sage brush, no grass. The utilities were at the very back of site and on passenger side, so extra hose and extension cords were required. After backing into our assigned site I discovered it was only 30 amp. I returned to the office and asked to be re-assigned to a 50 amp and was advised that there were a limited number of 50 amp and none were available. We left and found much better accommodations down the road. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four nights and had a blast! The sites are back in, but I have been backing up trailers since I was 8 years old (now 55), so I didn't have any issues with that. Played mini golf and spent the day on Blue Mesa in a pontoon boat, then had dinner at Pappy's! We had to cancel our horseback riding as a rain storm came through. Instead, we drove back through Gunnison and up Taylor Canyon for some 4-wheelin'! The staff was great and helped us with whatever we needed. We did join the club and will be back there in three weeks for their last open weekend of this camping season! Can't wait! While we are not big into fishing (which is one of the big attractions to this area), we decided that we liked this location as a base for our summer camping activities as it is central to a lot of the places we like to go in the Colorado mountains. And when we have out-of-towners visiting, we can always take advantage of the cabins, some of which also have an RV spot right next to them. The wifi was OK (they said that they are working on it) and in the site we were in, we had no OTA TV reception, and since our trailer was new, this was the first time we ever tried to hook up cable TV to it. We couldn't get any cable TV stations, so I asked one of the park's maintenance guys about it, and he and another guy came out to our site and checked the post and even hooked a TV up to it, and as it turned out the cable hookup in our new trailer is bad (warranty repair coming soon). Hope they don't get tired of us as we plan on spending lots of time there in the near future and beyond! We love Blue Mesa Ranch! Wish I could post some photos here . . . We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We have Verizon, so had spotty cell service at our site, but after all, this is a mountain getaway! But they have their 'cell service gazebo' by the parks entrance, and we got good service there. And Gunnison is only a 15 minute drive away for food, Walmart, gas . . . whatever you need!

One of the few parks we would give a 10! I will admit we were here after Labor Day and the "rug rats" were gone but, boy, is it peaceful! They are putting in a new Wi-Fi system and it is improving. Poor AT&T. Sites are nicely spaced and do require some leveling, but that goes with the territory. The peacefulness makes up for it! We plan to return. Rate reflects Coast-to-Coast member rate. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 5 days on a promo tour of the ranch. When we checked in we were given site #88. We drove to the site and quickly figured out that we couldn't back into the site. It was long enough, but the road (paved) leading to it was just too narrow for us newbies (as the person giving backup instructions to driver, I suck) to use. We went down the road and snagged #79 instead. As a side note, the sites are all (or mostly) back-ins. If you're good with that then go for it. If you're not all the comfortable with the maneuvering then beware. The ranch is nice, it's peaceful, and this time of year no kids (nice). They have pools (indoor and outdoor). We tried them both, and on the best day we were there really enjoyed the outdoor "adults only" pool. The key is to be a member here. We liked the place, just didn't know if we'd use it all that often. We're not big fishers, ATVers or boaters, so just not our style of RVing. Other then that the staff is friendly, though somewhat absent, but that's OK, we really didn't need them for much. The area is lousy for cell service, you almost need to drive down to Gunnison (9 miles?) to get coverage (or go out in the middle of the lake.) The Wi-Fi (while improving) is still very spotty and unreliable. We got a pontoon boat for a day and had the BEST DAY ever on the lake! It's very pretty/peaceful out there. We enjoyed our stay, and we'll be back (if we can, as we didn't buy in to the membership). Our stay was free, as a promotion. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Blue Mesa Ranch twice within a month. The first time they gave us a site on the west side of the park. The power was down to 103 volts at times! We asked to move east a couple of rows and the power was fine. They charge $2.00 per day for "cable TV" turns out it is air tv 4 channels! We used our own antenna which received the same channels for free. We asked to extend our stay 5 days and were told they would be full..well they had over 60 open spaces. May or may not return! We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

Large wide sites with nice views of the lake and mountains. This is a convenient location for hiking, boating and fishing. The restrooms and showers were well maintained and clean. There is a nice indoor family pool area and outdoor adult pool area. There are nice amenities. I would recommend this park and will stay again. We stayed for two weeks.

This is a very large campground with a lot of amenities. Unless you like boating or fishing, there's not a lot else to do outside the park. The lower (older area) has some small trees for shade, but the upper area is out in the sun. Some of the sites are not very level, but most are OK. As others have mentioned, the Wi-Fi is almost useless (not enough bandwidth for the hundreds of users). Our biggest problem with this park is that there was no cell phone service -- it's in a dead spot. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

Site offers ample space, no 50 amp service, WiFo access useless and only marginal in office. The reason given was not enough bandwidth for all of the rv sites...so get more bandwidth! We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

Great Rv park with wonderful view of Blue Mesa reservoir. We have stayed here many times over the years and would recommend to any camper. The resort has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. One for families and one for adults which is nice for quiet time. There are planned activities, mini golf, horseback rides and planned dining functions. The sites are large and most offer views. The public area and rest rooms are clean and modern. The staff are friendly and helpful. We have camped here in a fifth wheel and a motorhome. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

As our second RPI park we were quite impressed. The first left us a little worried about what we had bought into. This one however, was definitely an upgrade. The showers were clean for the most part however the showers near the outdoor pool were more like a pressure washer on an excellent day. The showers near the indoor pool were much more user friendly, although they did not drain properly. There is no real cell phone service in the area, however they do offer a land line for making important out going calls. Internet service is provided through Tengo-Internet; and not one of the best providers. It is geared down to less than 100 MB per 24 hour period to which you had to pay $2 per day per computer / device. Plus $1 a day for "cable" although you only receive 4 channels. The check in manager (a older female) was rather rude and "short". All in All, I would recommend this park and stay there again if we travel through the area. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

We came in under RPI and bought a membership to get access to ROD and AOR networks. This is a nice park in high desert vegetation across the street from Blue Mesa Reservoir. Resort has lots of activities, 2 pools, billiards, mini golf etc. They serve meals 4 days a week which is a nice break from cooking. People are EXTREMELY friendly. Public allowed and you may get a break on camping costs by attending a presentation. We love membership camping; you may too. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

This park is acceptable but needs some renovation. Nothing major; just routine maintenance to sites, hook-ups. We stayed here with ROD membership. Good spot near the Blue Mesa lake. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground with many amenities. Close to town, close to Blue Mesa Res. Had a great time. Campsite was fairly level for a back in. Got here at night in the rain and had very little trouble hooking up. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

I was expecting more. Sites are uneven, the "natural grasses" they are trying to grow are sage brush. Cellular reception is very bad. Unless you like to fish not much to do. Could be really nice, but it isn't. We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.

This has to be one of the very worst campgrounds in Colorado. The Office and Pool area are the only things that are nice. The park is out in the sun and Sage Brush with no trees. The sites are eroded and unkempt. The sites are a powdery dirt and you better have lots of leveling material as they are not even close. Your neighbors are about 15 feet on either side of you with no privacy at all. When the wind blows the dust and dirt do also. It is very depressing to stay here. The management has done nothing to enhance the park. They are only interested in selling you a time share: Ha Ha. I cannot imagine why someone would pick this park again after spending only one night there. I have never had such a bad RVing experience. Also when we asked about Tengo internet we were told: no limit. Then on the second day of paying for internet we were locked out as using too much bandwidth. So money spent was money wasted. It is not a friendly place for dogs because there are stickers EVERYWHERE!! We camped at Blue Mesa Ranch in a Motorhome.
