First time here, didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Our site was nice, plenty of shade and quiet. Viewed birds, humming birds and squirrels running around. Would definitely come back, I like the fact of being able to reserve on line.

“Decent, but not the most scenic spot on the Conejos River”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2017

Overall Rating

The Conejos River Valley is a really lovely stretch of Colorado, and there are some awesome campgrounds in the area. Unfortunately, Aspen Glade just doesn't measure up to the other spots along Hwy 17.

There are three loops to the campground - A, B, and C - and there is a big difference between site quality in the different loops. Loop A, which is where we ended up staying for one night, has just a few spots, all of which are visible from the highway, have limited space/shade/privacy, and are mostly overgrown. Because of the overgrowth & ground condition, some of the sites that are listed as being large enough to accommodate bigger rigs wouldn't actually be up to the task.

Loop B is in better shape, as it looks like each site has been given some more recent TLC. The spots are more level, cleared, and some even seemed to have fresh gravel laid down. A lot of these spaces don't offer much in the way of shade or privacy so you'll definitely be seeing your neighbors.

Now, for something completely different - let's talk about Loop C. This is the only area of the campground with direct river access, and each of the sites is tucked in among the pines, offering plenty of shade and privacy. The fact that it's MUCH nicer than the rest of the campground probably explains why it was booked solid well in advance.

One other thing to note about Loop C is that it's down a short but steep hill from the rest of the campground - meaning if you stay in loops A or B, you'll have to trek up and down every time you want to visit the Conejos.

For any full-timers working from the road: all Verizon coverage completely dies just a few miles from Mogote, CO, so be sure to plan in advance.

All in all, this place is...fine. It's not the best camping experience, but it's an alright base camp to get deeper into the mountains, while still being relatively close to Antonito.
