“Great if you are in a pinch”

Overall Rating

There are about 5 single sites and 1 double site. It is right along the river but there is no good river access. We stayed in site 2 and it was level, but there is not a good spot to sit right outside your rig. The fire pit and picnic table are behind so it seems a little crunched. The top sites are better for space and there is a turn around spot so you don't have to worry about driving down the road. I wouldn't take anything over 35'. It is close to 75 and 6 and so it is loud, in June it was 100 degrees without shade and the bugs were ridiculous. There is day access to the right, which is nice but can get noisy.

So the positives, it's right at the bike path that goes for miles and miles, it's 7 miles away from a Costco, and it is pretty central do a lot of places (Vail, Avon, Glenwood). There were a lot of fishing spots either way on the path. There are toilets and as I mentioned before the sites were pretty level so there isn't hard setting up.

All in all, if I needed to stay 1 night because it was a travel day, I would but not an extended stay. There are not that many RV parks in the area and the ones that are are $$$! There is one place close that has dry camping but it's $35 for nothing, so in comparison to that this is a lot better. There isn't a lot of boondocking close by either.
