“Tight lines....fish on...”

We made the reservation six months in advance for Rosa Loop which is the only one with full hook up. Depending on which way you are coming you may have to tow your RV up Wolf Creek Pass, the climb from east to west not so bad, the downside of east to west pretty steep, from west to east the climb is steep with the down side being not as steep, good brakes and an awesome "hoss" of a truck is needed. LaVeta Pass depending on which way you arrive is not as suddenly an upright climb, but slow and steady to the top. We arrived within regulation time, mid afternoon. Campsite is a pull through, with a shade shelter, the pull thru's on this outside loop are gently curved, however each end of your pull thru does touch on your neighbors. Campsite was clean, no trash or dog waste. The inside loop are largely back in's with no shade shelters, while the outside loop has a shade shelter every other site, small trees here and there, it does get hot here. You can bring a shade shelter but the winds may be prohibitive at times, seemingly coming up out of nowhere...so much so that they will actually sound sirens on the lake as a warning...but this is after the winds have started. The sites on Rosa loop are very close together, but no matter it remains a beautiful out of the way place. Be sure you stock up for your stay before you come here, as the nearest town for supplies is Durango...Walmart....that being 40 miles one way little backroads until you are a few miles out Durango. We fish and have a boat, you almost do need a boat to fish the reservoir as the banks are steep, rocky in places. Fishing was excellent, especially for smallies and walleye, a few perch, no large mouths at least not for us, plastic baits were the winner. I do not know if the marina close to the campground rents boats, but there is another marina a little further down that may. Weekdays are fairly quiet, however by Thursday the activity ramps up, as does the noise. I get it people work and want to have fun, but it should not be at the expense of others.....others do not necessarily want to hear your music or television, blaring obnoxiously. If you have a boat you may be able to squeeze it in by your camper or behind it...or in front of it, depending on size...large boats not so much. The camp host last year was good, and pretty well keeps people on the up and up, the rangers do drive through on occasion...pretty rare. Dogs are allowed, and are to be leashed and waste picked up...however not always the case, as on the trails dogs were loose and dog waste was evident. The view from a lake side campsite is beautiful. Chimney Rock is close by, with occasional night time star gazing and tours scheduled.

We enjoyed a restful stay at this state park after a couple of busy weeks at another location. The sites by the lake are awesome! Great views and very spacious. We stayed in a full hookup site. We didn't use the bathrooms, but my husband said he went in and they weren't that nice. Since we had full hookups that wasn't a problem. Verizon worked well here. As we were driving into the park I had no Verizon signal, but as soon as we got to the campground, the signal was good. There must be a dead spot on the way in. I think AT&T also worked, but we didn't use it much as AT&T is our backup in case Verizon doesn't work.
