19 Parks near Wagon Wheel Gap, Colorado
Aug 2016 - $34.00
Stayed here in Aug, 2016 in a Class A motorhome. Camp owners and hosts are friendly and helpful. Beautiful views. The park is next to a hill with a huge rock bluff (probably over 700 ft to the top) on one side and the Rio Grande River on the other side.
Campground has rental jeeps and horseback rides with a guide. Only minutes from both South Fork and Creede. Good fishing, both stream and lakes, in the area.
Campground is nothing special with most of the sites without shade, only 8-10 had shade. Most sites are pull through and all sites are gravel with varying levelness. No picnic tables. Restaurant on site for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good food. - Camper71-2004

This is a very well located park with the Rio Grande River running through the resort and an amazing towering rock mountain just behind it. One morning I saw a herd of bighorn sheep on the grassy area just behind us!
There is a restaurant, store and ice cream parlor on site. The ice cream cones are large, inexpensive and you can sit on the patio and watch hummingbirds while you eat.
Friendly campers and grassy sites are a plus, as is the open sky for dish, not always available in these mountains.
Phone and internet are poor to non-existent and the laundry leaves it bit to be desired.
Fishing is available on the grounds as well as jeep and raft rentals and horseback rides. - ronboett

The park is located at the base of a huge, beautiful cliff that has deer, elk, and bighorn sheep on its slopes. Our site was a long level, gravel pull thru with grass between sites. All utilities worked fine. The internet is extremely weak and Verizon service is about 1/2 bar. The host was very friendly and helpful. They have a good restaurant on site and the ice cream in the gift shop is both delicious and inexpensive. There a lot of cottonwood trees (hence the name) shading the property, but we were in the open, so our satellite dish worked fine. Phone and internet upgrades would make this park a "10". - ronboett

decent spot, but a little cramped and pressed against the highway traffic. - bpwarner72

We found this little park the last time we were in South Fork staying at another park. This park is funky but comfortable. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger parks. It’s very small and far enough off the road to be quiet. Most of the other parks in the area are situated right along the highway. The majority of RV sites are located behind the cabins. The interior road and sites are gravel. Water pressure was at 50 lbs., no problems with the power or sewer. Sites have a picnic table and are wide enough for all your slides and awning. Extra parking for boat trailers, tow dolly or vehicle trailers. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked well and we were able to get our dome satellite in. The parks Wi-Fi signal at the back of the park was weak and we were not able to connect. We had the very last site (#16) in the back of the park. It wasn’t quite level but we didn’t have any problems leveling our motorhome. We opened up to the views of the San Juan Natl. Forest and being at the end of the park you forget there are other people around. There’s a little gazebo with electricity for a get together and a group fire pit. (At this time there is a fire ban). The owners here have a cute little sandwich shop (located in the middle of the park) with outside dining. They use their own smoked meats and serve homemade Cole slaw and potato salad. They’ll even pack you a sack lunch if you let them know the night before. Bathhouse has one toilet and two showers. Although they smelled clean the shower grout needs to be scrubbed and bleached. We’ve never used the shower facilities in any park where we have stayed and to be truthful the bathhouse needs to be updated. The laundry room has 1 large capacity washer and 1 dryer. The price is a total of $2.00 to wash and dry. Each Friday there’s a farmers market in the Visitors Centers parking area located at the junction of Hwy 149 and Hwy 160. They feature local produce, baked goods, jewelry and other crafts. The nightly rate is $25.00. Site #16 is $28.00 with a private fire pit. We were charged $25.00 since there’s a fire ban right now. Weekly rates are $140.00 and monthly rates are $335.00 + electric. We didn’t see any mosquitoes while we were there. We would stay there again. - jannie5

Small park, about 33 spaces, mostly back in, rec. hall and separate game/card room, music, jams most evenings, July thru August, fishing, hiking, very scenic area, mushrooms in season, pool table and WII in Rec. hall, 5 mph in park. Many long term (monthly Rvers ) campers stay until Sept. Oct. Convenience store and fuel also on property. - txprospector

Very convenient for a stop over. Right next to Rainbow Grocery which has almost every thing you might need or want: food, automotive, sporting goods and RV supplies and prices are not bad at all. Right in the middle of town at the intersection of US160 and the road up to Creed. Surprisingly quiet. Filled with people from Paradise, TX that come every year for the last 40 years. Country/Western music jam session are frequent. Club house with pool table. Friendly owners that guide you in and help you set up. It's pretty tight - all back in spots with rear hookups. I had quite a stretch to make with my sewer hose, ended up moving over a couple of feet so I didn't have to go under the RV. I would camp here again only out of convenience. - creageous

Rainbow RV Park is a small park located behind the Rainbow Motel/Cabins and is within walking distance to Rainbow Grocery Store. Most folks are from TxX, OK and Kansas. There are several musicians and jam sessions several times a week. There is a rec, hall w/pool table and WII/entertainment/exercise--also a cabin for the several quilting ladies to do their sewing/quilting in. All in all a very pleasant place to stay. - txprospector

We stayed here the last day before they shut down for the season. After one night camping we wanted to leave the RV and take the toad over Wolf Creek Pass for 2 nights. They allowed us to do that for a $15.00 per night storage fee. Very pleasant attendant. Some road noise from rumble strips but not bad. Would stay here again. Campsites are gravel as well as the roads in the campground. There are picnic tables at each site. There is a nice store at the office. Every thing about the campground is very clean and well organized. - travelerlee

Dumpy park with ugly metal corral style dividers between sites and overgrown with weeds and crowded. They benefit from being located on the east side of Wolf Creek Pass, a high altitude mountain pass. Anyone navigating the pass near dark is likely to take refuge here after nervously coming up the pass and approaching this small town. Price was somewhat good as compared to others, but literally nothing to do in this campground, no rec facilities, small store was closed when we got there, staff (older guy) wasn't too inviting. - yousah

This park is conveniently located in the town of South Fork. It is a very basic park and from what we can tell, one of the better parks in the area. The roads and sites are gravel. Each site is separated by a corral-like metal fence. The sites are close together with tow vehicles and toads parked every which way on the roads since the spaces are too tight to park your vehicle in the site. There is a small rec hall that is open to all unless it is booked by a group staying in the park. Most of the people in the park are returnees from East Texas who stay for the summer and seem to know each other. However, they were all very welcoming to us and invited us to their weekly jam session and card nights. There are weekly pot lucks. Verizon aircard and phone worked well. There is are two bathrooms and two showers and were very clean. There were two washers and two dryers and were reasonably priced. WiFi is available but we didn’t use it. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. For what you get, I feel the cost of the campground was high but this is the going rate for the area. We would stay here again. - adsaxs

We were here on a rally so no idea of cost. Park is being rehabbed. The sites are gravel as are the roads. The site was easy to get into and out of. The reason for the low number is that it looked like all the site work had been done. If that is the case, then many sites need to be redone as they are very unlevel. The worst was: the rear was below the front, thus always having the potential to be a safety hazard, as your rear wheels are the brake on most motorhomes. - peddy dick

Hot showers in spacious modern bathrooms with actual hot water !!
NEED I SAY MORE?
This park is one of the best I've ever designed. Family oriented, and very well poised for you to take advantage of Southwest Colorado. Many great spots to choose from, all with great views; and plenty of wildlife everywhere you look.
Peacock Meadows; a true Gem in the Rockies! - bpwarner72

The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Location and views were excellent. Lots of wildlife and the RV park is right on the Rio Grand River. Excellent WIFI and hookups. Kids had lots of fun with all the wildlife, rabbits, geese, ducks, beaver, squirrels, prairie dogs, ect. Overall is was a great time with our kids, truly a nice family RV park. - World travelers from Florida

We stayed here for a quick overnight stop while passing through the area. Park was fairly empty. We were given one of the 3 pull-through sites and it was easy to get our 43-footer into, but would have been very tight if we had a neighbor. Water spigot was much too close to the sewer. A little pricey for an overnight for what you get, but easy highway access. - Xcountrypartyof5
Sep 2016 - $12.00
Stayed for a month which is why it is $12. The power is really great and so is the water pressure. WiFi was good most of the time. Pretty level spots. There was dinners lots of time in the rec hall which was good and nice. Bring your dish to share. Would stay again if in the area. - neilontheroad

Good park for a base camp. Convenient to the 2 area highways. Utilities worked fine although some are inconvenient (had to lead water hose under trailer). WiFi was very good. Site was level. Many seasonals from Texas and Oklahoma who have come year after year. Activities and potlucks. - gumper

The neighbors were great, we really enjoyed meeting some interesting folks. The park, however, is well past it's prime. The management isn't friendly and they turn off the WiFi if they feel it is being used too much. The cable TV didn't work and the bathrooms/showers aren't clean. Overall the park could use a good sprucing up and a new attitude for the grumpy owner lady. The setting is absolutely beautiful. - oneeyedmac

Great park. Off the highway, so a bit of noise, but really not bad. Mostly grass sites, some are pretty sweet and shady are held by seasonal renters. Nestled in among the cliffs heading to Wolf Creek Pass on US160. There's horseback riding and ATVing run out of the office and professional quilting equipment. South Fork is 6 miles and the National Forest is 200 feet away. The air is cool and it rains some. There is a nice laundromat and showers. The water is a bit on the brown side, so bring an extra filter and the pressure comes and goes. Quiet, inexpensive and quite beautiful. I would stay here again. I am here for over 1 month paying $320/month plus electric. - creageous
Oct 2016 - $17.00
My rate reflects Passport America. Very nice clean park right off Highway so a little noise. It is better to back in this site because of the way they have railroad ties laid out . We pulled in but couldn't help but go over one of them because of turn radius. The FHUs were fine but wifi only worked half the time. I have no idea what their bathrooms, showers and laundry look like because we have our own. We stayed 3 days and loved touring the area . We would stay here again at these prices. - JAWS

Spent a weekend here. The Staff was friendly and helpful. Had a back-in space. It was wide enough but the road is very narrow because everyone is parked there. Had to move two trucks so we could back in. Even though the park and Lodge were full, it was quiet and comfortable. Everyone acted responsible. This seemed like a much better choice then the 500 trailer RV park up the hwy. The Rio Grande river is right across the street. With being the prime time of the season, the price was awesome. Needed to put a towel around the sewer dump line because it doesn't seal. All other connections were good. We would stay here again. - Ron n Sharma

Very friendly staff. When it rains (and it does often) the park roads have a lot of mud holes. Wi Fi and TV reception were very poor and often didn't work at all and the service people were out almost every day working on it. The park is very convenient to great fishing and all outdoor activities. Some of the motel guests were very drunk and disorderly with their loud music and racing their ATVs thru the park. Not a place for small children when these people are present. We would definitely look for a different park if in the area again. - dok

Management was very nice. Sites are pretty close together and even though we had a pull-thru, one of the turns to get to our site was pretty tight. There are some nice back-in sites next to the river, but they would definitely require some jockeying to get parked. Wifi never did work for us. We had a Verizon signal, which we boosted, and a strong but slow ATT signal. - lorangl

We stayed at South Fork in a 30 ft. motorhome for one night. Good location on Rio Grande but only a few sites back on to it. The sites are very close together, and when we were there, it appeared many sites were long term stayers, a month or maybe longer.
The hosts are very helpful and friendly, facilities could do with a bit of modernization, and WiFi was intermittent, unless you sat near 'the shed'. - Singaporeally

We had a wonderful experience here during Memorial Day weekend. The whole campground was beautifully kept with accommodating managers. We enjoyed the woodland setting. We will definitely be returning. - User2853
