Another great trip to Fun Valley, our 11th. Can’t imagine why anyone thinks the work campers are unfriendly unless they assume all retirees are old grouches. Most all have worked there for years and are very friendly and helpful. Roads are paved, sites are grass and/or native soil covered with spruce needles. Many on site activities including stocked trout ponds, miniature golf, paddle boats, float on the river, bike rental, nighttime entertainment, C&W dancing some nights, grocery, large clean staffed laundry. Some things to be aware: The name is Fun Valley Family Resort. They rent to families only. And it is a "gated" park. Only registered guest may enter. There is an even mix of families and retirees, with many of the retirees bringing their grandchildren. The park is large, about 3/4 mile end to end and on both sides of the river. It is an old park (1959) with 400+ RV sites laid out when RVs were much smaller. Sites range from quite large to tight. Some sites in the trees seem somewhat haphazard but that is because they simply put them where the trees were not. No reservations taken and no sites preassigned. You check in, drive thru until you see a site you like, and park there. During very busy times you may not be able to get a site you would prefer. Last week of June to end of July can be very busy. If there is a lot of rain, some of the sites can be somewhat muddy for 2-3 days. Sites in the trees are mostly 30 amp, sites in the “meadow” are mostly 20 amp. WiFi is weak, but available. Unlike most RV parks, there are always people out walking, biking, jogging, fishing, visiting, etc through out the day. So it always appears busy. We will stay here again.

We were not allowed to enter the park to evaluate whether or not we would want to stay here in the future so my review is based on what I could see and experience as far as the check-in desk. The lady that "helped" me was a little rushed and seemed aggravated that she had to interrupt her conversation with a co-worker in order to help me. She barked that I could not enter the park to preview it, citing "security concerns". Sites seemed quite crammed in viewing the park from the road, and it looks like an enormous complex. When I got back in my care to leave and as I turned around to exit the parking lot, two security guards leaped up and rushed toward me as if I was going to enter the park without their permission. Good grief, dudes. I know you are retired with nothing else to do, but chill out. I can say with absolute certainly that we will not camp here. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful area but....way over priced. Long way from anywhere. Park was really run down and dirty. Don't stop here ! We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Our rate includes a week of square and round dancing but does NOT include the "food package". The "just camping rate" looks to be about 25/day plus taxes. Assortment of sites: "parking lot", treed, level, not so level, etc. Located in spectacular valley, on a river (South Fork of Colorado, I believe). Park has stocked private fishing ponds at additional cost. A mixture of 15amp and 30amp power (some of the posts have 50amp plugs but they are not hooked up. It's a long drive from here to anywhere. Nearby towns are small and prices reflect the lack of serious competition and the short season. Our only reason for going to this park is because of the square/round dancing but lots of non-dancing campers return year after year. Beats me why, but maybe they know something I don't.

It's a beautiful location but the facilities are totally run down and the showers are just gross. It would almost still be worth going if the people who run it and a lot if the staff weren't so grouchy and rude. They advertise Wi-Fi, but you can only get spotty service at the front office. The RV sites are not paved so it is either dry and dusty or wet and muddy. The restaurant food is poor quality and run by the rudest people. Won't go back.

Cranky staff- overpriced food & things are pretty run down. It seems that no upkeep has been done in the past couple years. There's lots to do which is nice but usually crowded. Wi-Fi doesn't work 90% of the time. Many of the workers are not friendly & seem almost annoyed when you ask for help or need service. Fun Valley needs a face-lift & some new energetic help.

Rate reflects nightly rate for a square dance week of 6 nights. Dancing and food is included. Restrooms & Showers were clean and the water was hot. There is no air conditioning or heat in restroom. Site was level on grass. Boards needed because on grass. Park site size is okay, but can be a little close. The access is off US 160 down a curving hill. Park roads are dirt and gravel, but not a lot of dust. Didn't try the Internet. Park is quiet and there is adequate lighting. Owners are nice and the park is well maintained.

A great place to stay. Plenty of things to do for the family. Very family friendly. Some of the sites are very cramped. Many sites do not have 30 amp electrical hook ups. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best. We could not connect for the four nights we were here. Highly recommended. We will stay here again. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Pros: a lot to do, easy to find, very friendly staff, pretty setting,close to alot of attractions. Cons: They don't take reservations so you have to drive around to find a spot you might fit into,tight and closely spaced, more 20 amp sites than 30 amp sites and these are generally to ones that are open unless you get lucky. All in all it was a good experience and I would come back. The Wi-Fi worked most of the time and we even had ocassional cell phone service which isn't bad for the mountains.

Price is so high because it included all meals and square dancing. Restrooms & Showers are clean. Site was level on grass. It is fairly hard with room for a forty footer and towed. Swing room can be limited and hookup is side by side which can lead to narrow living space. Park is right off 160 below the road. Main park roads are paved with the site roads dirt and gravel. It is a very quiet park. It backs onto the Rio Grande River. There are lights in places but the clear sky and moon provide the rest. Staff is friendly and the park is well maintained.

Packed in like sardines and the staff (work campers) were very unfriendly. I would dry camp beside the road before staying here again. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Tried to stay here, but they would not even allow us to enter to check out the details of the park. From the road, which is the only way to preview it, it looks like RVs are packed in like sardines. I knew the original founders because I live in their hometown and they were much more accommodating folks. Current staff and owners act like they are the only place to stay and have a very arrogant attitude, as if everyone is just dying to stay there. Park appears to be well maintained and clean. Numerous activities are available, but could not view or evaluate any of these. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

We were at this park for 2 months. All of the workers are very nice. They have activities going on all the time. The park is very peaceful and very secure. A great place for kids to enjoy themselves. We will definitely go back, and hopefully for the entire summer. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We were here for 9 days in early-mid June. What an awesome place. Our entire family had a great time. It was getting crowded towards about the time we left. The food in the diner was great and fairly priced. We found everyone very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend the trail ride if you have time. Cell reception was very poor (AT&T), but that's not the fault of the campgrounds. We would return for sure. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Back in 2003 we camped at Fun Valley and loved it. We always wanted to return, but we heard the park had run down. This year we decided to go back and we were glad we did. The resort was in great shape and wonderful. Our ten year old daughter never dreamed that Fun Valley had so many things to do. It's nice to go to a place that still has family values and doesn't stick you with high prices. This place will be a annual summer time stop for my family.
