We stayed here three years ago and had one of the best sites, with a cement patio, overlooking grassy, rolling hills. This visit we weren't quite so lucky as the campground was nearly full, although we managed to squeeze our 32' fifth wheel into the back in site allocated to us, with small patio and picnic table - in the Yucca section of the campground. Most sites are pretty level. The office has a well stocked store with supplies and information about attractions in the area. We like this campground due to the open spaces surrounding it, which is great for dog walking, but beware of the cactus which my dogs always seem to be attracted to, and I spend a good ten minutes pulling the "thorns" out of their paws and muzzle! There is an official gravel dog walk around the outside of the campground about 3/4 mile in length. Wi-fi was weak from our site. We would stay here again when visiting the Santa Fe area.

Lovely campground with lots of shade and feels more like a State Park, although the stream was dry when we stayed here. The pet park is excellent; a reasonably spacious, fenced in area with obstacle course see-saw and jumps for the smart pups!! Sites were level with nice grassy areas alongside, with cabins dotted between the RV sites. The pool appeared spotless, as was the whole campsite. Very friendly staff help you back into your site, and the campground seemed extremely well run. A small store on site has basic necessities available. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Durango area.

Great location within walking distance of the town of Ouray and also the Hot Springs pool. The campsite is small and river sites are right on the river which is quite a drop and not accessible. We were parked next to a small grassy area, which everyone used to walk their dogs (and not everyone picked up afterwards), which made our dogs a bit anxious with so much traffic outside. A better choice was to walk the dogs in the park next to the Hot Springs where there didn't appear to be a leash law, so well behaved dogs were able to stretch their legs! The sites are small and large rigs had their slide outs nearly touching. Towards the end of the campground are permanently located mobile homes, which we were located opposite, but this didn't present a problem to us. The staff were friendly. Wi-fi wasn't strong enough at our site, but sitting on the bench outside the office with our laptops solved this problem.

Fabulous campsite close to highway, but with no traffic noise. We were in site 40 with an unobstructed view of the lake and spectacular sunsets, as well as great mountain views. This is a fairly new state park with spotless laundry and shower facilities. Good paved roads with level, pull through sites, each with a covered picnic table. The tent camping area was also great, with general parking and walk ways to the tent sites and plastic wheelbarrows to ferry your belongings to your camp area. Very open feel to this State Park, although not much shade. We would definitely stay here again!

We moved here after camping at "The Bend in the Road" attending Speed Week at Bonneville Salt Flats, as we ran out of water and needed to hook up! The rate was a rip off as we were in the overflow campground with no wi-fi or cable hookup. Obviously they told us that the rate was due to it being Speed Week, and we needed facilities, so didn't have a choice. The "stickers" were so bad that our dogs couldn't step outside the RV without getting about 20 of them stuck in their paws! The dog run is tiny with no grass, just gravel and my dogs looked at me like I was insane when I took them in there. So I ended up putting them in the car and driving down the road to some waste land. The pool was an odd green color, although plenty of people were enjoying it. No shade in the area we were in and quite a few permanent residents alongside us. However, the on-site store had good supplies, with a sitting area and coffee and snacks available. The laundry area was small and VERY hot, but clean and well maintained. The showers were spacious and clean.

Great views with spectacular sunsets over the mountains. Nice campground, tucked away from the main highway. Campsites were a little close together and are probably a bit cramped for the larger rigs. Each site had a picnic table and grassy area next to the site, and some sites had good shade. Easy access to the town of Moab and The Arches National Park and other surrounding National Parks. We walked our dogs in the stable area behind the park, which didn't seem to be a problem with anyone. Wi-fi and cable TV worked well. Beautiful scenery and inexpensive campsite. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Moab.

This wasn't our original destination, but unfortunately our truck broke down, and we were stranded in Grants for two days, whilst the Ford Dealership fixed it! The site is all gravel with level sites and a small dog walk area at the end of the campground. The wi-fi was excellent and the laundry facilities, TV sitting area, and showers were clean and well maintained, with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Fortunately there was a good convenience store within walking distance for emergency supplies. We wouldn't have chosen to stay here, but under the circumstances it was a positive experience and inexpensive.

Good location, about seven miles off I-40. If you want to camp in the premium sites you need to make a reservation. We didn't and had to take a site without water hookup, away from the lake and the canyon. There were no on-site staff when we arrived and it's an honor system, placing your fee in an envelope and posting it in the receptacle. Although our neighbors told us that they had set up in one of the vacant premium sites and the maintenance man had made them pack up and move. We did however, love the location and a short walk to the lake was worth it with a chance for our dogs to take a paddle! The canyon on the other side of the park was spectacular and unexpected. The park was pretty much empty on a Monday afternoon. Sites seemed spacious, although some were more level than others. If you don't need all the "extras" that RV sites can offer, this is a peaceful and beautiful location with good fishing in the lake apparently.

We loved this campground, although some sites don't have a lot of shade, it's peacefully located off the main highway. We took the back road in by mistake and really thought we were lost in the middle of nowhere, until we came over the hill and spotted the azure blue lake beneath us. The camping area is separate from the day use swimming area, which was pretty packed on a Sunday afternoon. But the campsite was quiet overnight with fairly spacious campsites and an opportunity to let our dogs paddle in the lake - they loved it! You can't beat the rate for this park.

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip and also on the way home, 2 1/2 weeks later. The campground is clean and well run. With a store available at the office with essential provisions, gifts etc. The pool looked inviting in the 100 degree temperatures, although we didn't get the chance to use it. We have two large dogs, so a trail walk close to the entrance of the park was perfect for exercising the dogs. Wi-Fi was weak, although we weren't too far from the office. There is a restaurant open Friday, Saturday & Sunday's this time of year, we ate breakfast there on our first visit -which was excellent. A positive experience for a one night stopover.
