Rate does not include daily entrance fee as we have a CO yearly pass. This is another super CO state park. Other states should model their SP system after CO. Huge level site with covered picnic table, fire ring and wonderful lake views. The whole campground is big rig friendly. No WiFi and spotty Verizon cell service, but we found you could get a signal at the golf course a few miles down hill. The 6-7 miles once you turn off CO 13 and to camping loop are narrow and winding, but doable and worth the effort. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

Go up to Rifle Falls SP and see the falls and hike up to the fish hatchery, it's awesome. Harvey Gap is also close and a pretty drive. No camping there but nice site for a picnic and fishing. Rifle has everything you need to restock your RV.

Large, paved sites and roads. Utilities worked well but water pressure was extremely low at 20 psi. Our site at the top of the loop (site 51) was very quiet which we loved. Verizon signal was sparse, there sometimes and not others. If this park had Wifi and better cell service I would give it a 10. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Fifth Wheel.

This might just be our best state park camping experience ever. Pull through sites are paved and there is an adjoining patio of raked gravel, a shelter, a picnic table, and a fire ring. Showers are pay, four minutes for a dollar. Hookups worked well, we showered in our motorhome. There is also a dump site down by the office for the other campgrounds that don't have sewer hookups. Lakeview is the only one with full hookups. This place looks like golf course people are taking care of it. When booking your site be sure that your RV will not be parked between you and the view. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

Lake offers fishing and boating. Rifle Falls State Park is just down the road. Tell them you're camped at Rifle Gap and they waive the entry fee.

Another beautiful Colorado State Park. Park is an easy drive from Rifle. Wi-Fi access ends about a quarter mile from the Rifle Gap dam. Pick your site carefully if you want a lake view from your site. The road to the CGs are narrow but the road within the CGs are wide. Sites are well maintained and clean. All utilities worked fine. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful view from the Lake view Loop. Could be a bit exposed if windy or bad weather. Lovely clean sites, well maintained. Be aware you need to pay an additional $7.00 a day park fee on top of your camping fee. But it does give you access to Rifle Falls Park as well as Rifle Gap park when you go exploring.

We stopped here for a quick overnight and fell in love with this state park. To be clear, it's a ways off of I-70. To get to it requires traveling a windy and sometimes narrow road with some very sharp turns. It makes for some interesting times in a 40' class A motorhome. But the drive is worth it!!!

The park is one of the nicest state parks we've ever camped in. Check in was a breeze. The site itself was a pull through and the pad was concrete. The utility hookup was very clean with all the utilities either in a concrete box or in very clean and raked gravel.

The picnic table is covered by a small pavilion which is located on a gravel pad. I was amazed that even the gravel pad had been raked prior to our arrival.

The only reason that this park is not rated a "10" is because there is no shade. Still, this is an absolutely beautiful park located on the lake. I'll be back. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

One of the great Colorado state parks with full hookups in the Lakeview loop. Other loops closer to the water have electric and water or just electric. Dump station is available. In the Lakeview loop, the sites are large and most have great views of the water and hills. On site host does a great job on having a pristine, clean site for you when you arrive. He even rakes the gravel. Sites had a level concrete slab for the rv, with picnic table and fire pit. Some picnic tables have a covering. Restrooms and showers were clean. We were at the top of the hill in site 53 and it was so quiet with nobody in front of us and nothing but a hill and some deer to the passenger side. This is a great state park and we shall definitely return. The cell service for ATT was limited but was available at certain locations in the park.

First the Colorado State Park Campgrounds are fantastic we have not had a bad stay in one so far. We could only stay 3 nights at Rifle Gap as we came without reservations. We stayed in the Lakeview section with outstanding views full hookups and a roof over the table.

The sites are spacious, sunny and open with a concrete pad, picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful lake and campsites, easy access - especially for larger rigs. Roads are paved and the sites are level concrete pads. The adjoining gravel patios are beautifully raked before you arrive, and include a fire pit and picnic table. The whole park is nicely kept and the park hosts were super friendly. All hook ups worked great. The sites are tiered so most get a nice view of the lake. We used this as a base camp for trips to Aspen, Grand Junction and Glenwood Springs. Would definitely return!

We are here for Rally and it is very clean and well taken care of State Park. Sites are level and well spaced with great views from each site. We will definitely camp here again. Although there were no trees on the site we did have a shelter for the table providing shade. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Fifth Wheel.

Really pretty State Park and the Lakeview CG has some really nice views. Although there are no big trees in the CG many sites have large covered ramadas. I wouldn't hesitate to camp here again. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

This was our first stop on our first lengthy camping trip. We got spoiled. I had originally reserved a spot in the Cottonwood loop, because I thought it would be nice to be on the water. Despite the fact that I made the reservation on the first day reservations were open, we arrived to find out our spot had accidentally been given to someone else. The ranger said he could move that person to a different spot, but he suggested we might want to go up the hill to the Lakeview loop instead. He was right; Lakeview was much nicer, in our opinion. Full hookups were great. Sites are paved and very level. Restrooms/showers were very nice. We also didn't miss being on the water, because the lake was so low that being on the water was not particularly attractive. Great campground and not too far to do things in Glenwood Springs. *Notes: The fee I cited does not include the $10 reservation fee. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

Campground was adequate. The fee was not justified, however. There's a transaction fee to make reservations plus Colorado state park entrance fee that was $7 more per day. The lake was down, and park service can't help that or the fact that it's just dry and the drinking water is slightly tan and mineral-laden. We have a Colorado park pass, which must be glued to your front windshield. Permanently. We're from another state and will only use the pass for two weeks this year. But we're stuck with the blooming decal forever!!! Other states give card pass which must be accompanied by photo ID. That's a better method. I realize this practice is not the policy for Rifle St Park. Still, I would not return there . It was not even close to getting value for cost. I've stayed in three star hotels thru Priceline for same nightly rate. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Travel Trailer.
