8 RV Parks near Mosca, Colorado
Oct 2016 - $30.00
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

The views from the site are beautiful. It is right by the entrance of the Great Sand Dune NP. This is an older park and it shows. The sites are close together. The interior roads are gravel and very rough. The staff is friendly and helpful. Electric is good but water pressure is poor. There is no WiFi or Cable but Verizon is good and we had no problem with satellite. - roybrody

A small campground at the hot spring pool. This campground is good but the focus is the hot spring pool. Lots are very close to each other and offer some shade. Site surface is sand and features a fire ring and picnic table.
Be sure to pull into left side of sites, and then loop back into your site. Sites are at an odd angle but if you go to the left it dead ends and you will have to back up.
When camping you get pool discount. Pool is very popular with families, but they have an adult section with a very lounge like feel. I would highly recommend to upgrade if you are not a big kid person. - Kevincolorado

Great view of the sand dunes and close to park. My 40' MH would not have fit in the National Park rv sites. The road to the sites was not just gravel but rocky and rough. We could not pull into our site so unhooked toad and backed in to our pull through site. The FHUs were fine but no wifi. We did not look at their restrooms,showers or laundry because we have our own. The empty site next to ours was littered with big mounds of dog poop. All RV owners should be responsible enough to pick up after their dogs or they should not come to RV parks. RV Park owners should clean up after RVs leave a site. - JAWS

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

We stayed in loop 1 which is first come first served....we were able to maneuver our 36' mh ok but I wouldn't go much bigger, there are very few spots for a mh this size in this loop but there are some, leveling in some of the spots is challenging, but manageable....of course there are no hookups and didn't use the restrooms....this loop has some excellent views of the dunes and the surrounding mountains....ATT cell service was almost not existent so wifi or using your hotspot is not good...the host was very friendly and accommodating....most of the pull thru sites are just pull overs on the road so stepping out of your vehicle can be close to vehicle traffic....this is a typical national park campground and in our opinion is worth the price...we would stay here again..... - smoky40

great location to explore the dunes. Restrooms very clean. We arrived on Sunday around 1p, not many sites available. Unfortunately, many of the pull thru sites are just a pull off of the side of the road thru the CG, some very narrow. Medano creek was dry. Be sure to do some hiking in the forested areas surrounding the dunes. very nice views. - katinfoco

This NPS campground has two loops and each has an assortment of spacious sites suitable for an RV. Motorhomes or trailers over 32 feet have fewer potential sites to select. The key to a good site is to arrive early. We stayed here for five nights. At 4 o'clock each afternoon the swarm arrives and most sites are taken by sunset. Weekends fill up by noon. The only available water is located at the restrooms. Nearly all sites are shaded by pinyon pines and the loop roads are paved. We stayed here in a Motorhome and will likely return some day. - James Barr

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

I wanted power, water and Wi-Fi for the night because I'm dry camping for the next four nights. Wi-fi seems OK in the middle of the afternoon with a strong 5-bar signal and no latency because the network is overloaded. We'll see how it is later as travelers come in - it was OK, but the park was not crowded.
I'm a bit surprised the park is so far east of Alamosa - there is no shopping nearby. Groceries, restaurants, and other supplies are a moderate drive to the west.
Very friendly host couple, but it's your standard gravel parking lot KOA. What more needs to be said? - Retired-n-Roamin

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

Last post pretty much covered it. Our site #10 was about 75 feet from busy highway with heavy truck traffic. Site 10 was gravel all around. Auto leveling done in short order - pretty level, good water pressure and EMS was happy with 50 amp service. Local water was good for cleaning windshield and bugs off front with no water spotting. Our space was side-by-side and had to park our toad in part of empty space on the other side. An older park, lowest price in area. Overall suitable for quick overnight stop but not much else. Picnic table shared with neighbor. - ctpres

OK Park for overnight. The couple in the office were very friendly and helpful. Sites are tight and trees could use some serious trimming. There's a lot of junk in the park, u haul trailers and a railroad tracks out back. Site was barely long enough for our 30' 5th wheel and truck. This older Park has a lot of potential but needs a lot of cleaning up. We probably would not stay again because it was tight. - Islandgirllil

I thought the campground was very nice when you take into consideration where you are and the short season they have. We looked at other campgrounds and felt this one was the nicest in the area. You do get some road noise throughout the day as highway 160 is busy and you are right next to it. But you easily get adjusted to that and it quiets down at night. Bathroom and shower were acceptable. A lot of space to take your pets for a walk. There is a store on site as well as gasoline and propane. Sites are reasonably large. What was really nice was a wi-fi that was strong and never a problem! - BigGene
