“Colorado’s Finest State Park”

Reviewed May 21, 2019

Overall Rating

Incredible staff who take very good care of the facilities. We stay at state parks as often as possible and this is by far the best. (Sorry Mueller) the best price for full hookups as well. Fully paved, super level pull through that are over sized. All campgrounds specially spaced apart, so even if this campground was full it wouldn’t ... more

“Beautiful Park - for Amazing Winter Camping”

Reviewed Feb 02, 2019

Overall Rating

Great place to stay for Winter RVing.... The park has about 6-8 sites they keep plowed and cleaned off. Bathrooms, heated, were open (no showers). We had electric hookup (site 6 - pull thru) They have water faucets centered so that few sites can share - you fill up then unplug your hose until you need to fill up again. We saw a lot... more

“Excellent state park”

Reviewed Nov 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely Colorado state park. The spacious sites are arranged around loops and most are parallel with the road. Sites on the exterior of the loops tended to be a bit more private than ones on the interior of the loops, but all were pretty good. The sites have nice sitting areas with picnic tables, gr... more

“Quiet, clean, wonderful”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed on the lower loop, above the river. Very quiet, but I think the upper loop would be much noisier, because it is next to the highway. Being there off season was nice. Nice pull through and clean sites. If you need cell service or antenna tv, forget it, but it’s well worth it. We loved this place! The only negative thing,I can ... more

“An unexpected gem”

Reviewed Jul 29, 2018

We chose this SP because it just made sense logistically as a meet up for us and couple of friends who could make it there without too much problem. Looked like a *decent* place online on the SP website, but we weren't exactly expecting it to be great. But we were really happy to find a spacious, well kept and well managed park with ... more

“Gorgeous park, peaceful, quiet”

Reviewed Jul 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed at Ridway State Park for seven glorious days. We were in a self-contained RV, so we did not have to use the showers or bathrooms. The park is very busy during the summer, but we always felt like we were the only ones camping there. It is so quiet at night, no traffic noise or anything to keep you awake. As with any s... more

We really liked this state park offering great mountain views and access to some on-site trails. Bike ride along the trail leading to Ridgway but did not make the full ride due to the oppressive heat. Site were well spaced out and fairly level with concrete picnic pads. Sites have electric hook-up only which seems standard for CO Stat... more

“Luxurious full hookup sites along the Uncompaghre River”

Reviewed Jul 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed in the Pa Co Chu Puk Campground (the northernmost camping loop in Ridgway State Park) for a few nights at the end of a 10 day trip where we boondocked - and it was nice to end the trip with full hookups. We had a nice, private site along the river - so the sound of the rushing water lulled us to sleep at night. Our site was... more

“As good as it gets!”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2018

Overall Rating

This state park is top notch! The water is currently off in the lower campground due to possible freezing in the forecast. The top loops are $24 and the bottom loops are $28 because they include a sewer hookup. The bottom loops are in closer proximity to the river for fishing access. Two negatives: 7 per day entry fee for CO state... more
