“Great Off Season Camping!”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2018

Overall Rating

We were here mid-April, before the summer season opens, and had wonderful luck with the weather. Plenty of sites available with electric hookups in Loop D, including pull-throughs. Other loops were dry camping only and virtually empty . Sites are paved and reasonably level. Dramatic views of the mountains. Convenient to the reservoir for fishing and to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison for hiking. Took a day trip up to Crested Butte. Off season rates in Loop D are $20 ($10 for those with a national park pass). The park service let us choose and tag our site, but they apparently don’t remove expired site tags. Check sites with tags but no RVs as they may be available. Note that this is a dead area for cell phone service. We had to drive into Gunnison to check email and messages.

“Price reflects winter rate”

Reviewed Apr 21, 2018

Overall Rating

So far we like the campground. A little bit of trash here and there and it doesn't look like there are any camp hosts here yet. Still in the off season the price is 14 for electric site. They have 20,30&50 amp hookups. Our pedestal looks to be very new also so that's a plus. The dry camping loop is only $8 a night right now in the off season. Easy access of hey 50 and a lake view. Only negative is cell reception is just ok. No 4G or LTE on Verizon or att.
