It's located on a somewhat steep slope that is easy to navigate, but because of the layout of the park, doesn't give many trailers a view of the reservoir. Sites are gravel but are pretty level. Ours only required one block to get perfectly level. As an older park, it has the wonderful advantage of having lots of mature trees, in this case very pretty Aspens that line the road and separate the sites.

Less attractive is the doubling up of rigs into single driveways. We had a large diesel rig warm up his engine to depart and because he was backed up within about 2 feet of the rear of our trailer, he was able to force us out of the Airstream to get some fresh air, light headed and smelling of fumes. Thankfully, most people here seem to come to stay for a while so this only happened once.

As on-the-road internet workers, the internet here really was our big issue. There is no real cell phone signal here, just an occasional roaming 1x signal for Verizon. With the booster, we could make phone calls but that was about it. The park does provide Wifi with antennas scattered through out the park to provide a strong signal throughout the park. The speed seems to be throttled to about a 1Mbps speed which is perfectly adequate for us to work. However, they have some pretty severe data caps that come into play that will make it difficult for any road work warriors. They seem to throttle you down to 250kbps after about 300-400 MB in a single day. Don't forget to turn off your Apple photos upload and attempt to upload more than 1GB, they will cut off your connection entirely. However, the office staff was extremely nice and helpful and turned us back on after that little incident. That said, we ended up going into Gunnison to the public library or one of the coffee shops in town to get our work done on several days. If you just need email and light web browsing, this park will be great, but if you need to put in an 8 hour day, this may not be the place for you. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Park is 12 miles west of Gunnison. Park is up steep hill. RV site is quite long, but most of it was hilly. Most of sites are permanent installations and not well kept. Vehicles parked in roads and some roads are dead ends. No real amenities. Park advertises wifi, but it is very sporadic. Cable tv is available. We got 2 out of 3 satellites on Dish to work. Cell phone coverage is nonexistent, but mountains in all directions. Park is quiet. The best thing about the park is the scenery. Blue Mesa Reservoir is across the highway. Location is great for mountain trails or fishing. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

puddleduck, owner at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins responded to this review

We take your comments seriously and we ask all our customers to make us aware of anything they feel we could improve . It is much easier to have the conversation in person and we can come away with a better understanding of your thoughts.
We do have 20 mobile home sites in addition to our 68 RV sites and the owners are required to maintain them to certain standards. If you saw something you found to be unacceptable I truly wish you would have made us aware.
I am somewhat confused about the reference to dead end roads and vehicles parked in them. There is one cul-de-sac as shown on our site map but seldom would anybody have a reason to park in that area.
If you found our wifi "sporadic" I apologize. If I knew where in the park you were or what problem you encountered I may be able to make improvements. Our system is sometimes slow to cut off "bandwidth hogs" and that too can have an effect on the rest of the customers.
Cell service is difficult. There are some areas of the park where some people can get service. There is also a cell booster at the office to help folks who can not get service.
I can only hope that you contacted the provider that you are paying for service and let them know about your experience.

They do not post their park policies/rules on the website and failed to mention until we arrived that they DO NOT permit campfires. They do have WiFi & will issue a UN/PW at check in but 1/2 of the UN/PWs failed to work. They have 2 washers and 4 dryers, two of which were broken. One washer is small and the other is large load capable. The bath/shower rooms have 1 toilet and 1 shower; the showers cost $2.00 that buys 5 min of hot water. After a day at the lake, my 16 y/o and 5 y/o daughters used the shower room. According to them, while inside, a lady banged on the locked door and with a southern accent yelled at them through the open window, saying something to the effect of, "Why don't you go somewhere else to take a f*#@ing shower?!" That is the level of clientele Gunnison Lakeside RV Park attracts! Likely due to long term residents, I suspect they have a rodent problem. A mouse got into our trailer shortly after we arrived, which we caught. I mentioned it to another camper and she said they had a rat in their fifth-wheel belly storage a year or two ago while at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park. When I mentioned the mouse to a staff member, I was told, "Well, we are in the mountains, we do have mice out here." Ummmm, okay. Thanks for the biology lesson but what do you as an RV resort do to eliminate, or at least reduce their rodent problem. In regards to long term residents, my friend was parked next to a long term resident. A park employee warned us not to disturb the person because they slept during the day and worked at night. Ummmmm, I don't give a rat's @$$ what time they work! I'll respect the park's quiet hours and that's about it! We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Purchase some Bonide Repels-All Animal Repellent (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Bonide-Products-238-Repels-All-Anml-Repellent-Rtu/25762694) and spray all around and under your RV, as well as any retaining walls adjacent to your site.

Thank you for pointing out that our policies were not posted on our web site. They are now.
I'm sorry you had trouble with your un/pw on our wifi. Had you asked for help we would have gladly provided a custom password that would have been easier to use.
I'm also sorry you had a mouse in your camper. We use products to help prevent this, but have to keep them at a safe distance from people, pets, rabbits and chipmunks but some can escape our best efforts. There are numerous products on the market to help avoid this very common problem and you can find lengthy threads on RV forums to help.
As far as the woman using foul language to your children. Had we been notified at the time she would have been asked to leave immediately.
We take your comments seriously we constantly try to provide our customers with an enjoyable experience.

We have stayed here several times the last few years. The park has great views, but the biggest plus of the park is the friendly, helpful staff. Everyone is super friendly, and will point out great things to do in the area. Very quiet, mostly fishermen staying there due to its proximity to the Blue Mesa Reservoir. They are about 12 miles out of town, so it's a little jaunt into town. Very little cell service, they do have weak wifi (on par with most RV parks), and offer a few television stations via cable from an amplified signal captured from TV repeaters sitting on top of Monarch Pass. I'm very satisfied with the park, and will return next summer. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Great views in eastern row. We faced east looking out toward Gunnison, 12 miles away..the nearest town. Eastern row all full time mobile homes, not RV's. Had grass right out or door. Site was reasonable level. Park is across the highway from Blue Mesa Lake. NOTE. Little cell service. I had to keep walking the park near the highway to stay connected. Could not get our Verizon hot spot to work. They give you two of their codes but each additional is$5. Never been charged for hook ups like that. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Park is basically right on Blue Mesa Reservoir which was good for us as we were here to fish, and a nice public boat ramp across the highway from park. There are lots of permanent residents, but all is fairly well kept. Quiet hours are abided by, and the staff is friendly. We will stay again.

We stayed here 3 nights. The park is maintained very well. It is a beautiful park. The only hiccup was a space we were supposed to stay in was occupied by a motor home that was broke down so the people we were travelling with had to stay further than we would have liked, and the second night they left a sprinkler running and flooded our front door. Otherwise it was a pleasant stay and I would stay there again. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Lovely fall scenery with a lake view from our site. Nice people in the office. Great overnight if you are traveling Hwy 50. If you are a fisher person or boater and want hook ups this would be a good choice. My only complaint is the shower. I really do expect a free shower at private parks. They have very limited bathroom facilities. One Ladies and one Gentlemens which are just like your bathroom at home--one john,shower and sink ( too limited for 67 sites). Most folks don't care about this but it is big with me. I would have given them an 8 if they had better bathrooms. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 3 days in Sept to see the colors changing. Our pull through site was long and level, the WiFi and TV were acceptable, the owners were friendly and helpful and the campground was clean and well cared for. We will stay again when we are in the area. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Paid $42.79 for two nights, Passport America rate with taxes. We had a nice long fairly level 50 amp full hook up site with good Wi-Fi. Our Verizon was at the very edge of its service area. TV was bad, no batwing, but cable had some over the air signals, but we did not get much. I ran the coax straight into the back of our front TV, had a couple of PBS type stations. If you fish, a great place to stop. But other than that, its just a pit stop along US-50. Overall, a decent place for a short stay. Very nice helpful folks here.

We camped here over the the 4th of July weekend. The location is close to the Stevens Creek launch point at Blue Mesa Reservoir. The pros: - Very close to the lake - Friendly staff - Clean restrooms - Well-stocked store The cons: - Showers are pay and require $2 for about 10 minutes worth of hot water. - The WiFi is not too bad, but they only give you a password for ONE device. Do not download a lot of data or they will cut you off. They have limited internet options due to their location and they will monitor you if you download too much content (such as watching a moving on Netflix) - Cell phone service very limited (Verizon) which may be good or bad depending on if you need the service or not - The sites were not very level (property is on the lower side of a hill) - When we were there, there were a lot of flying bugs (not biting, but annoying) and not something that the owners could control.

Just got back from our Colorado vacation! This was was the perfect spot for our stay in the Gunnison area. It was across from Blue Mesa Reservoir where we put in our boat. No problem getting our unit to our pull through space. There was plenty of room for our dog to walk without distractions. Easy on & off from Hwy 50 and very quiet. Owner's were very friendly and helpful. This is a place to go back to. We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an nice rural RV Park, about 8 or 9 miles out of Gunnison, across the road from Blue Mesa Lake. We paid the Passport America rate, with an extra $2/night charge for an extra wide site. We got the wider site so we could socialize with fiends who were also staying in the park. The gravel sites are level, and the hookups all work and are readily accessable. There are trees in the area, making the park attractive, but they are placed so we had no trouble getting satellite access for TV. Telephone service with Verizon was poor. There is a hot spot, near the office where telephone calls can be made. Internet via Verizon MiFi, did not work, and the park wi-fi was very very slow. I found that using that service, I was unable to reach some Internet sites requiring passwords. We would stay at this park again, but the poor telephone and Internet access was very annoying.

Easy access off the highway between Gunnison and Montrose, but no significant road noise. We were there for 3 days, and it was a great "base camp" for our ventures to crested butte, Gunnison, black canyon, and the recreation area. Close to the lake if you are a boater. Nice staff. They had kind of a weird setup where the pads were really long, and had connections on both sides. The intent being they could park short/medium sized rigs back to back. It wasn't busy, so that wasn't the case for us, but for some reason they still had us back in, even though the other half was empty. Internet was slow, but they tell you that upfront. Overall I would stay there again We camped at Gunnison Lakeside RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.
