Beautiful State Park. In fact I haven't yet found a Colorado State Park I didn't like. Beautiful nature trail all along the Colorado River. It can get 100 degrees in mid-July but the mesas on both sides help hide the sun earlier and later in the day. Tip: Start your AC early, set it lower to begin with and use your awning. Verizon doesn't work well, but AT&T is pretty good. The restrooms are not as nice as in others, but they are satisfactory. The camp hosts are very nice and friendly. I will certainly return again. Nice relaxing 5 day stay. - Colorado Vagabond

Rate includes $10 transaction fee for online booking plus $7/night park fee paid upon arrival. They accept credit cards. If you plan to stay at other CO parks, you might consider buying an annual pass.
We had a pull-through site which was plenty long. Sites are well-spaced. Our site had a covered picnic table which was nice because it was quite sunny and warm mid-June.
There is a fishing pond and a (different) swimming pond. The Colorado River runs along the back of the property and there is a nice pathway for walking. The campground is "sandwiched" between two mountain walls and they are beautiful. We're told big horn sheep come down to the river but, sadly, we never saw any.
The good news is that the campground is super easy access off the 70 highway. The bad news is that the 70 highway is also sandwiched between the mountain walls so the noise is pretty constant. It didn't bother us but I could see that it might bother some especially if you're trying to sit outside and relax.
One negative is that a nearby neighbor was pretty boisterous one night until 1am. We were surprised park patrol and/or the camp host didn't shut them down. - GottaGoNow

The only draw back here was road noise! But, The scenery was incredible, and we got used to the noise. Great location for day trips around Grand Junction. Espesially up to Grand Mesa.
Sites were mostly pull through, gravel. great shelters with picnic tables at most sites. - Jeff Jangerous

Came to this park intending to stay 3 to 4 weeks. I called ahead and made reservations and was told if we stayed only 3 weeks we could still get the monthly rate. When we went in to pay the manager told us if we stayed for 3 weeks we would not get a monthly rate and the total cost would be over $900! We argued, but she would not budge. This park has recently been sold. There are very dilapidated RVs parked there permanently and it appeared most of the people there were on a permanent basis. We had stayed in this park previously and it was ok. It was near our sons home, so it was an ideal location for us. Needless to say we did not remain in this park. There was also construction going on so it is very dusty. The restrooms were clean but the staff, including the manager were not a friendly or accommodating. Staff could be overheard being very vocal about their disgust with the new owners and the new policies put in place. Customer service was non existent. - suzwoodard

The trains rumbled by all night long. They have a nice looking pool but no one was in it and the lady at the front desk told us it wasn't warm enough to swim in. Many of the spots are very close together, vegetation is lacking and there are many permanent residents giving this place an unsavory feel. Two out of three showers were not working in the men's restroom. We would not stay here again. - Colorado gal

This is our second stay for one month. This is probably the nicest RV park in the Grand Junction area. They work hard to maintain the common areas and spaces. Some areas have small grass patches, other spaces are gravel only. 2 dog parks, a swimming pool and a nice laundry room. We requested a move to another shadier spot after a few days, and they were very accommodating. There are many full-time residents here, but everyone seems friendly. We will use this Park whenever we visit the Grand Junction Colo area! - Explorateurs

Our second time to this RV park. We think it's one of the nicest KOAs. Staff is super friendly. Registration queue can get a little congested but staff is very quick with the check in. A small store with limited supplies. Restrooms were clean and modern. Roads were easy to navigate. Roads and sites are thick gravel. Very attractive and well maintained park. Sites are spaced nicely. Some grass. Some sites have a grill, fire pit, patio and patio furniture. We had a deluxe site, C-11, that we felt was worth the price. We think it's the nicest site in the park, an end spot with all the things mentioned above plus a six foot privacy fence and lots of grass. Two fenced pet areas. Utilities worked great. You may need extensions depending on how you park and whether you want to keep your tow hooked up. The power and water are awkwardly placed in your neighbor's patio area. WiFi was very good. Lots of cable channels. Some noise from the fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday night. - VegasVagabonds

Stayed two weeks. Awesome staff hooked us up with the spring rate of stay-5-nights-get-2-free. Park is next to fairgrounds; we only heard noise a couple times (announcers, horses, and derby cars). Quiet otherwise; very few kids while we were there. Not a lot of long-term folks. You have to always turn right out of the park and if you want to head back north/west, there's a u-turn intersection just a bit down the road. We were happy here. We're unique; we have a dually truck, 40' fifth wheel, small SUV, 10x10' flat-trailer and two motorcycles. All of this fit well on regular pull thru site (not a deluxe site); we did park truck perpendicular behind 5er. Site was good gravel, not beat into the ground and not so deep it was hard to walk. Outdoor space nice with grassy area, then rocky area with BBQ/fire pit, then patio-paver section. There are mature trees in the park as well as some smaller trees; didn't hinder maneuverability or scrape RV. You're not totally on top of your neighbor, but pretty close IF your rig has slides on BOTH sides (your neighbor's awning will be a few feet from your RV). Only slightly annoying aspect of the site was the decorative fence between each site, and also the trees. It looks nice, and helps it not feel like just a big parking lot...but, our slides were millimeters away from the fence on driver's side so our passenger-side slide wouldn't be in a tree. We were not able to walk around our RV without having to hike over the fence or just walk thru neighbor's site. Also in our row only, your neighbor's hookups are just past the end of your patio area - kind of awkward. Not like that in every row. Appreciated that they let us get a package while here. WiFi was great for surfing websites, social media, email. Multiple bars of AT&T LTE. Staff was constantly working to keep place nice/improvements. Note - grass is watered with ditch-water, staff said not to let pets drink it. - FrozenWaters

Site was huge with a picnic table and fire pit. Gravel site with plenty of room. Wifi is ok, not great. Tmobile cell service worked great. - Shaughn

Rate is monthly rate divided by 30. This is a bit of a "Party Town" park -- they openly advertise that they are "420-friendly" which does attract a certain crowd. On the other hand, everyone -- staff and guests -- are very friendly and mellow. Lots of cats about, which is always a good sign. With the grocery store in town closed, this C-store is the only place for miles around to buy gas or food, so there is lots of traffic, with concomitant noise & dust. Also, the pull-through sites are NOT LEVEL and leveling is done only with extreme effort. The pull-throughs are also very close together, to the point where slide-outs intrude onto neighboring spaces. These are the closest full hookup sites to the Grand Mesa, and there is also an RV dump for folks returning home from the Mesa. I will definitely stay here again, but not during the hot part of the year: there is no shade except in site A. - Old Mountain Man

This park's name is accurate - RV CAMP. It's not a resort or even a park because it's pretty rustic. The spaces are nebulous (tough to know if you're really in one), but they give you enough freedom to get almost) level. The surface is occasional gravel with cement & rock fire pits. There were no vacationers while we were there, just workers in the local industries (although they were very friendly. We would stay here again if we wanted to visit the Grand Mesa for fall colors, but I do believe the price is too high for no cable (because you probably won't get broadcast channels). Looks like the park is for sale --I hope the new owners will put a little money into the place and make it a true destination because the Mesa is an awesome place (and there are no full hookups higher on the mountain). - User873

Camped overnight on our way back to Niagara. Stayed here because of the closeness to restaurants, next time we'll drive the extra miles.
Really run down, dirty place. No curtains in the shower windows. Place hasn't been properly cleaned in a long, long, long time.
Permanent residents allowed to pile junk on their sites, everything you think of when you hear trailer trash. Just a couple of rules would go a long ways to improve this park. Unless you're a sadist avoid this park. Stay at the Pilot (Travel Station) down the street. - papaken

This is a mobile home park with some RV spaces. Site was almost level, did use one block under wheels. Good for an overnight stay but nothing else. Would return for an overnight. - SD75mac

Very nice. The paved site was spacious with some shade, and the restrooms and showers were clean. I had a wonderful time. I would stay in this park again. I do love Grand Junction. - Sarah rojas

Very modern with large cement pads and driveways. Utilities are very solid with good water pressure, excellent electric and good, ground-level sewer access. Our only problem was that most occupants are full-timers and not too tidy. We stayed twice, for a total of 3 weeks and never sensed any odors. The location is quiet and conveniently located. We will stay here again. - Shadezguy

This is a good overnight stop with friendly part-time staff. There is no office and you must call when you get there to find out how to check in and site number. Lots of permanent residents. A new looking campground with concrete pads but no picnic tables or grills. The turns in the campground are very tight for a 43 foot Class A. - John & Bobbie

Stayed at Jumbo C.G. three nights. Best campground on the Grand Mesa for rigs over 30 feet. Quiet black top circular drive, and large tent pads at each site. A screen tent is definitely in order, as the mosquitoes are a real nuisance. But after all, this is the Colorado high country (over 10k ft elevation) with over 300 lakes. Beautiful Mesa Lakes within walking distance, lots of fishing and hiking trails, camp hosts friendly and helpful, and The Grand Mesa is magnificent!! - grizzly0099

This is a national forest campground, make reservations at www.recreation.gov. 21 sites with electric, 5 without. Water available but no hookup. No sewer or dump station. Vault toilets. Absolutely beautiful location at 8000 feet elevation. Lakes all around with good fishing. Sites are neat with picnic tables, some with shade. Cell phones work. Warnings about mosquitoes but we did not experience them at this time of year. Would definitely return. - JEMc

Sites allowed a little more room side to side than the last space. Gravel roads and sites, need more gravel in sites. Located in an industrial area outside of town but close to Colorado NM and Gateway Canyon. Beautiful drives. No table. Barely enough room for 37' coach, our sm car had to be parked parallel to coach with little room to open doors. - T2P2

We really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, safe. Our site was too short for us. We couldn't park our truck at our site. - Terry and Bob Simmons

My wife and I have traveled 45k miles through 41 states in the past nine years and we have never encountered finer Customer Service than we received at Junction West RV Park.
Due to a family emergency, we had been forced to cancel most of our previously planned summer space reservations and were without a confirmed reservation for Labor Day.
While traveling north through Denver in route to Montana, my wife decided to called JW RV Park to see if they had anything available for the Labor Day weekend that would tie into a confirmed September reservation we had retained at the Grand Junction KOA. To our good fortune, Lisa answered the phone and informed my wife the park was booked full, but they had just had a cancellation and she told us to 'come on', they had a space for us. Upon arrival we were guided to our space and assisted with parking.
The park has a great view of the Grand Mesa to the west and we've seen many wonderful sunrises and sunsets during our stay.
JW has some of the largest (70 ' x 40') pull-throughs we have ever encountered with rail fence dividers between each space and nice picnic tables. The surface is gravel, but has very little dust issues due to the type of gravel used. The streets within the park are 33' wide, so there no issues for larger coaches towing. Utility connections are handy, but you will need a long coaxial cable if you require cable. The water pressure was a bit lower than we usually encounter, but nothing of concern. JW is located near I-70, but excessive noise is not an issue. There's a Love's on the access road if you require fuel and the park is located ~4 miles from numerous restaurants and grocery markets.
The Maintenance Staff is continually roaming the park conducting routine checks, up keep and improvements, but are prompt to deal with any issue you encounter during your stay.
The Owners & Staff are top notch. Great park.
Rate based on daily, weekly & monthly during our stay. Daily =$43 w/GS. - Les Gipson

A little-used campground less than a mile up the highway from Jumbo campground, and where Jumbo sends people when they are full. No water in 2016 because a rock fell on the line; maybe they'll fix it some day but this campground has seen NO maintenance in years and is deteriorating. Sad, because it is nice. Lots of pull-thrus, some nearly level and some awful. All sites are shaded with tall trees. Gourmet mushrooms grow in this campground in season, also wild strawberries and raspberries. - Old Mountain Man

The CG is just above 10,000 feet so if you're not accustomed to this elevation you best be aware of the issues of dealing with it. The lake is great for fishing and has a nice boat ramp. The CG has been around for a good while, but was basically remodeled just two years ago. The sites are generous, but gravel, as is the road into and through the park. The Nat'l forest info/visitor center is about 2-3 miles from this campground (there are several campgrounds in this specific area). At this specific CG only the first 9 sites have electric (ours didn't). The campground host was the nicest man you'd ever meet (we spent about an hour talking to him). This area is good for people that like to fish and mountain camping. It's a climb getting up to this area and a long decline going down, but the roads are good. There are some fruit farms in the Cedaredge area (south of this campground) & we pick up some cherries heading to the campground. We would definitely camp here again, but would prefer an electric site if we went back. Some of the high numbered sites have great views to the south, but no electric at those sites. - Parrothead Mike
