This park just reopened this year after a 4 year shutdown due to forest fires. Loop road and site access is tight but manageable. 7500 feet in elevation makes for a pleasurable summer stay. About 4 miles of hiking trails in the campground with access to the National Forest backing the area.
Great staff, ensured garbage was dumped several times a day. Bathroom facilities maintained very clean. Sites were cleaned and raked after each rig left.
Site layout is strange. Our site had the fire ring behind the unit and the picnic table at the front drivers side.
No water or sewer at sites. Potable water fill station and dump station located at park entrance. I had good quality power on a 50 amp site.
Weekend traffic was busy, due to a very large church group in the group shelter area for the weekend. - RE:Todd

OK place to stay in the area. All of our hookups worked. We only needed 30 amps since it was pretty cool. The site itself was really only a dirt and gravel lot but it was fine for our needs. We did have a big tree for shade. Lots of grassy areas to walk the dog so that was good. Trains were noisy and frequent but the whole town is along the tracks so no other options. We went to the 2 closest pueblo and enjoyed the sites. Would stay here again if we were in the area. Nice lady in the office. - Reeetired
