This park has some good points and bad points. South Fork is located just east of Wolf Creek Pass, a nice place to stop and rest. There is no over the air TV reception. There is good water pressure and electric. The Wi-Fi was mediocre, sometimes descent speed and other times just plain slow. All the spots were well shaded. The RV park is a few miles east of ‘downtown’ South Fork along US 160. With the park being 'down' from the highway, there is no traffic noise. The park has some nice quiet riverside sites, where you can sit and watch the Rio Grande flow south to Mexico. There is a rarely used railway line that runs along the highway, that makes for a nice dog walk. About 100 yards down the line, there are railway cars parked, but it makes for a nice walk outside of the park. The road leading in the other direction leads to a small number of streets with homes, that is also a nice walk. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. Nothing fancy here except the beautiful river, but it's a very pleasant park. We only stayed three nights, but lots of the folks there stay a month or even the whole summer. No cable TV and no channels available via antennae, so unless you have a satellite dish the Internet is the only possibility; luckily the Wi-Fi is good most of the time. We will be back to stay here again. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The forest fire missed all of South Fork and the entire town and this RV park are open for business. This campground has some monthly sites available for about $15 per night. The bathroom and shower houses have been completely remodeled and are great. The park hosts are the nicest people. Evenings are cool and the daytime temps are about 75 degrees. Many fishing areas and four-wheeler trails are open. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This Park is situated between Highway 160 and the Rio Grande on the east side of South Fork. The cottonwoods give plenty of shade. We were lucky to get a river side spot for one night. All facilities are nice and clean. Did not try the Wi-Fi because my iPad with AT&T 4G performed perfectly. Caught a brown trout with my fly rod, making it a perfect stay. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park for a week's visit. Wi-Fi is terrible. If this is factored in with the price, they should give a discount. Nice clean laundry room. Managers are very nice. Several full season residents, but they keep their sites clean. Sites could use a sprucing up with some new gravel to cut the dust. We would stay here again if in the area.

Great campground, beautiful setting. It is very treed and shady, but even big rigs should not have a problem with clearance. The folks who run this place are great, very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again if we make it down to South Fork. If you can get a riverfront site, do it, the sites back right up to the river. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were in a riverfront site and it was a nice setting. The park was very nice but the riverfront sites were extremely dusty. Most of the gravel that was in the front part of the campground was missing from the river sites. Our particular site also required some work to level. Overall, a nice campground that could stand some improvement. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here 8 days. Clean park. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of friendly folks. Lots of trees in most sites, so bring your portable dish as there is no antennae or cable TV, and trees block your dish. However, park staff came second day and pruned limbs to get dome satellite to work. Quiet. Some regular activities in the summer such as breakfast, etc. Gravel sites are level and adequate length. Good electrical, water, and sewer hookups. Will come again. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

Managers and staff are awesome here. Went out of their way to make sure all was right. The park is nice, we were in site 41 backed right up to the river. No problem with cottonwood trees or mosquitos. Power and water were good. We did not use the Wi-Fi,have Verizon aircard, cell phones worked good. We would stay here again, but would be careful on what site we chose. Some sites are very tight. Was amazed to see a large motorhome backed in to a site with two huge trees not 10 feet apart. Our site was large and level. Only issue was for other campers to get to the river, they had to go right through someone else's site. No dedicated path to river. Not so much an issue unless you have a gang of loud little munchkins heading to the river. We would stay here again. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I’m sure this park would be more desirable once the cotton wood trees finished seeding and the mosquitoes were gone. It is the only park we found with trees but I think I would rather be elsewhere next time so we wouldn’t have to deal with constantly cleaning our basement air conditioner’s grill because of the cottonwood seeds. The mosquitoes hunted in packs and we weren’t anywhere near the river. Anyone near the river will need a blood transfusion by the time they leave. Most of the sites were gravel, except ours. We dealt with dirt blowing in our face when it was windy and a muddy mat when it rained. The Wi-Fi was worthless but our Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. On a good note the laundry room has 7 washers and 6 dryers and very clean. There is propane on site but you couldn’t get a big rig in there to fill up. Good for filling your BBQ bottles. Nice friendly staff and an RV repairman on site. Rainbow Grocery Store to the west of the campground and in Del Norte to the east (about 13 miles) there’s another grocery store. There’s a fenced in play yard for the kids with a swing set. All the campers were friendly and as other reviewers have mentioned a lot of them are return campers that come back each summer. I didn’t notice a bunch of “yard junk” as another reviewer mentioned because I was busy combating the mosquitoes. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

The people here are tremendous. The battery in my Jeep died and the owners drove me to the nearest place to get a replacement. Such service! Even though South Fork Campground does not have cable TV, there is plenty to do outside the RV. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park with lots of shade and nice river side spaces. It was easy to get into, clean, quiet and the managers were very nice and helpful. It is the only park in the area with lots of shade trees. All the trees were trimmed so there was no danger of overhanging branches damaging our motorhome. I would definitely stay here again.

This is our 3rd year at this campground. It has more shade and bigger sites than others in the area. The campground hosts are "people friendly" and make everyone feel welcome. I read a previous comment about the campground that mentioned those of us that are seasonal and all our junk. We have signs with our names, solar lights, screen rooms, bird feeders, flowers, etc. that help to make the park appear homey and friendly. And, true there is a RV repairman with his sign out in the park, but, he is very busy and it is handy to have someone come to your RV to do repairs instead of driving to Colorado Springs, Pueblo or Denver. He is busy in all the area and has helped many of us RVers. We have recommended this campground to our friends and they are as pleased with their stay here as we are. We are here for the summer and will return next May. Great Place! We camped at South Fork Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice campground for an overnight stay. There are pull through sites, as well as back ins and river sites. It has friendly managers and is a very clean and scenic park. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Motorhome.
