This is about the only game in town. This RV park is a flat piece of gravel adjacent to a restaurant, a Best Western Motel and a drive in theater(!). It was clean, level, fairly quiet, treeless, plant less and featureless. It will be dusty on very windy days, a likely occurrence. Good antenna reception and our Verizon phone and broadband worked OK. - rncordy

Since I couldn't get ahold of a Visitor Ctr, I called local Sheriff Dept to confirm it was OK to overnight here (even though there is a sign that says it is OK to) and was told "yes you can, 1 night only". There was a music event in the park but was not crowded or too noisy. Great place to stay. Quiet and safe. Difficult to tell where to park, but we stayed on Spruce back by the trail, against the grass. - debmc

This is a free city park near the Upper Rio Grande River. Ask the Visitors Center for a one-night permit. It is located on Oak St. south of US 160. It was not open when we arrived so we parked without one and no questions were asked. RV sites are not marked. Apparently one parks beside the city park or in the dead end of Spruce St. where it meets the path along the river. The city park is well-kept, nicer than parking in a big box store parking lot. - Bill Strong

This is a basic park located close to town, but away from the highway. It was very quiet and access to the river and walking was excellent. They are working on an expansion which looks like it will be really beautiful! There is much potential to this park and the owner seems dedicated to making it a great park yet keeping it's rustic charm. There were many permanent tenants and older trailers, but everyone seemed very nice. The owners were extremely nice and wanted to make sure everything was good for your stay. We would definitely return. - RV Velo Quest

The park is down a paved rd that turns to dirt about .2 of a mile before the entrance of the park the dirt section is in good shape. Sites are dirt and grass but pretty level. This a basic park lot of construction workers live in the park. The hook ups were fine no bath house. They are building sites on the Rio Grand at this time. - Bigdodgediesel

High marks for value, we paid the cash price of $33.40 for 2 nights using Passport America. Power was fine, we did not need AC so we took a 30 amp, FHU, grass, pull thru site with very good wi-fi. Sewer connection was a bit uphill, but we have seen far worse. Just needed to empty the sewer hose before disconnecting it.
This place is a bit rough around the edges, but everything works and the people here are nice. The hookups are side by side on a lot of sites. But we took the one right next to the entrance and had an empty field on our curbside. Overall a nice place to spend a night or two. - Bob and Inga

Read the poor reviews and believe them. A dirt lot that turns into a soupy mud hole if it rains. The only bathroom available is inside the residence. Additionally, they no longer even provide WiFi. I've stayed in much better parks for less money. - Bikefiend57

This park is better than any park we have stayed at between Pueblo & Pagosa Springs. Wide driveways that are easy to maneuver with new gravel on each road & site. Good wifi, good 50 amps. We chose a pull thru at the back so it was a large quiet site. Lots of rabbits which are fun to watch. A very nice KOA for a day or two. Very nice personnel. Definitely a place we will return when in the area. - Freedom Bus

Trash not picked up regularly. No gravel, turns into a mud pit when it rains. Our rig sunk in the mud when we pulled in. Owner out of state and current manager doesn't have a clue. The "playground" is an old broken down backyard swing set that is not safe for kids to play on. They said they had good wifi, but it was not. We ended up using our hotspot to check email. No cable. The only shower/ bathroom they offer is in the owners house. The well water is non filtered and smells of sulfur badly. Our inline filter couldn't even help with the smell. We had to use bottled water during our stay. Not a place we will stay at again. - TravelOBRN

Wow, great WiFi, I don't see that very often. An older KOA, with small pool. $1.75 laundry, clean facility. Friendly staff - RVers that stay and work. Gravel campsite with picnic table and truck tire rim as fire pit. Our site had only 30 Amp service, which is okay for us. Elevation is about 7500 feet. - Bburgbrewer

This is a simple park, typical of older KOAs. All roads and sites are gravel, but it is clean, sites are level, and most are pull-throughs. The laundry room is very clean and has a small book exchange. As others have noted, there are sites of various lengths, cabins, and nice areas for tents. The pool was closed when we arrived; the park closes for the season on Oct. 15. Alamosa is 3.5 miles away and Great Sand Dunes National Park was an easy 45-minute drive. - DiplomatTraveler

Enjoyed our stay here at the koa very much. Great location for all the local attractions, sand dunes, alamosa, gator park, etc. All the sites are level, most if not all are pull through, clean everywhere. Folks are nice and welcoming, everything worked including the wifi. Lots of shaded spots, cabins to rent and a nice area for tents. Dog play area and a small playground. - SeeinUSA

Very nice hot springs and pool, an oasis in the high desert. Sites very long but not very wide. Big firepits, some fairly close to your neighbors camper,vehicle. Odd setup; if all sites are occupied, you have to go in the exit to get to the front of your site. Half the sites share same water hookup as neighbor so you run your hose under your rig. Big wide open, beautiful views. Wifi sporadically ok. All pull thrus. - jeeper13

The pool is the main attraction and the RV sites are a sideshow. Both were a disappointment for us. If you come here for the pool expect to be joined by the local population from morning to closing time. The pool water is hot, 98 F or higher, which made any prolong stay in the water somewhat dangerous and uncomfortable. Loud music is played over multiple speakers, which can be heard at the RV sites. Sounds of people screaming, yelling, and splashing can be heard at the RV sites till closing time. The most disturbing aspect of the RV sites are the overhead stadium bright lights. One was directly over our Motorhome. The sites are tight, dirt base, and dusty. It rained during the night and what a mess. The Wi-Fi is terrible. VZ 4G does not work well here. There are a total of two toilets and two shower stalls. The RV crowd, tent campers, cabin and lodge users all compete for those two toilets. Safety and security here was a concern for us. Rift raft pool users wander around the RV sites. Perhaps that is the reason for those bright lights at night. We had planned to stay two nights, but rejected any thought of another night. We stayed here in a Motorhome and we will never be back. - James Barr

This RV park has 10 sites and is very basic. All sites have W/E. There is now a dump station on site.
All roads and sites are on packed dirt. The sites are very long and can accommodate large rigs. The electrical box was on the appropriate site but the water spigot was shared between two sites. The electrical voltage was on the low side - hovering around 116. The sites were fairly leveled. It was extremely quiet at night.
There are (2) washers @ $2 and (2) dryers @ $2 for 45 minutes. The bathroom was very clean and the showers were coin operated.
Wi-Fi was available but we did not use it. Verizon Air card and phone reception was good.
You get a 50% discount to use the pools. There is now an "adult" only section to the pool called the greenhouse. Featuring 3 small soaking tubs with varying temperatures, a 10 foot by 75 foot zero entry pool, and a sauna. Here is also a small restaurant in the pool area that is reasonably priced.
We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

This is quite remote, which we enjoyed. Went when the park was pretty empty. Only a few other campers there. The road coming in is gravel, but well maintained. If there were bathrooms, we didn't see them or seek them out. The reasons to stay here are two: the great sand dunes are nearby and the views are spectacular. 180 degree mountain views. The sunsets can take your breath away and it gets dark enough to see the Milky Way. The campsites are pretty standard. No trees. - MissyBuck

We stayed here a couple of times during the month of September including the final night of the 2016 season. We really liked this Colorado State Park due to spacious sites, which have tremendous views of the dunes and the massive mountain range. The showers are coin operated and the overnight price is steep when the day pass is figured into the cost. Yet, these drawbacks appear to be the norm for Colorado State Parks. The campground loop roads are paved and narrow. The entrance road to the park is gravel. The electric hook-up is on the wrong side, but this can be corrected by going the "wrong way" on the loop road. The campground is isolated and beneath a dark sky zone. At least during September the majority of the sites are unoccupied. The San Luis Valley gets really cold at night. Colorado ought to be embarrassed charging campers for a shower after collecting $31 for the night. We may return on future visit to GSDNP. - James Barr

This campground is a total rip-off for the price. That said, there are beautiful views of lake, sand dunes and mountains and it is extremely quiet. No trees at all, great for satellite, but no shade to be had.
The entry road is a mile or more of severe washboard. As the DW said, "The worst RV road I have ever been on!"
We arrived at 4:45 PM. No one at the gate (watch out 13'2" clearance!) went to the site we had reserved two months ago, there was a tent set up with a printed park pass for the same date as our reservation on the post! We found another site.
Only electric and the post is on the right side of the trailer. The few and far between water spigots are also on the right side of one way roads. Had to drag my hoses through the mud to fill (it was raining).
I say terrible value because we often stay at a State Park near Denver for the same price! Close to metro area, full hook-ups, beautifully maintained, concrete pads. Here at San Luis no hook ups other than electric and park is poorly maintained. No staff to be seen anywhere, same cost!
We had paid in advance for five nights, left the next day. Won't be back. Going to argue for a refund! - Dennis M

We make South Fork Campground a regular stop and have since 2011. It is nestled among the trees next to the Rio Grand River - which are gold meadow trout waters at this location. That means you can only keep brown trout over 13" with a two fish limit. There are monthly sites, pull through sites and riverfront sites. The riverfront sites are all on a nightly basis and, except for one site in the corner that has been reserved by the same family for decades, there is a two week limit on the riverfront sites. We love South Fork Campground because it is one of the few campgrounds that allows campfires. Other locations within the city limits are restricted. We also like the river flowing right behind the RV. It's quiet and shaded because of all the trees. Some of the sites put you pretty close to your neighbor and some require some experience to back into because of the trees. The hosts/managers are very friendly and helpful. The laundry room is our favorite of all the local campgrounds. There are six washers and four dryers and a folding table. Great place to stay. - Mike Mitchell

We spent 2 nights in our 32 foot motor home, and had a river site. The park itself is fairly small, with private property on both sides. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are fairly small, as are most private campgrounds. We had campers on both sides of us, both friendly and enjoyed their company. Second night 2 couples came in to the 2 sites one over from us, and both allowed their dogs to run off leash. Management doesn't seem to notice or enforce the leash rule. Also be prepared if you have a river site, other campers will walk through your site to fish/play or just see the river. So don't expect privacy. We had 3 kids without supervision come through our site and fish and wade in the river. If you do camp there, be sure to visit site 13. He does some amazing woodworking. Walking sticks and chapels. One of a kind carvings! So this is a nice campground, if you have nice neighbors. - Tracey12

We have a small trailer with no hook-ups and a tent (3 people). Restrooms were tiled (no linoleum!) and loved having the toilet stalls' doors open out. Very clean (restrooms and campground) and quiet. We stayed August 18th and August 20th. A person traveling with us forgot her PJs in the shower stall when we left after staying on the 18th. The owners had found them, folded them up and left them on the counter in the bathroom. The PJs were still there when we returned on the 20th. When we returned and asked about the clothing they said they thought they were ours. Very friendly owners. Will camp there again when the need arises. - Judy K
