“Only for small rigs”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2018

Overall Rating

I was very surprised when we drove thru this campground. We went to scout it first before possibly staying. It looks to be a well kept campground. My only complaint is the size of the sites. Even with our 24ft trailer tip to tail we would struggle to find a spot to fit. About 1000ft in elevation change from I-70. It's a beautiful... more

“Typical good quality federal park campground”

Reviewed Mar 13, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here two nights in mid March 2018. Easy to find. Bathrooms were clean with actual flushable toilets. Check the official website to see what loops are open. In the off-season (now), only Loop A was open, which is first come first serve. Site 16 was flat and near the restroom. I just backed in with my truck (tent only). Some sites... more

“Just one night but look forward to next time”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed just one night at this campground in early November while headed west to Utah. The campground was really quiet with only a few other campers. I didn't see or hear anyone from my site - yay! I was camped in a tent. Many sites had vegetation between them adding some privacy. The weather was great, not too hot in the day not too ... more

“Nice campground!”

Reviewed Aug 15, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a typical NP campground. Nice, quiet, some nice views. Most of the sites aren't large enough for big rigs. We have a 40ft fifth wheel. There were only a few sites that were good for us but we did find one. There are nice bathrooms, drinking water spigots, recycle bins. There is not a fill station or dump station. The cam... more

“Nice campground, lousy weather”

Reviewed Aug 09, 2017

Space 42 is a great location with a very large pull through driveway. Nice spot for tent, too. No Firepit. Only charcoal fires in grill. Nice bathroom with autoflush toilets. Potable water. The view on loop B is breathtaking. However, be prepared for crazy weather in the summer months. We stayed in early August and both days got... more

“Beautiful view of the valley”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We had no problem getting up to the campground, but the road from Fruita is not for the faint of heart. The park service website says 40 feet max for an RV, but there is no way a 40 foot RV would fit here. We are 25 foot trailer and 19 foot truck and there were only a few sites that we thought might work for us. We pulled in here on ... more

“We enjoyed our time here and would definitely come again. ”

Reviewed Sep 08, 2016

Overall Rating

We loved it. Beautiful warm days that our solar worked well. Nice views of the area. Not crowded at all. Sites were not level, and after fiddling to make one work, we changed to #22, which was much more level. We enjoyed the hikes, and the ranger led "stroll" was especially nice. She was full of information and told wonderful stories.... more

“Typical NP Campground”

Reviewed May 25, 2016

Overall Rating

It's crowded, with screaming kids during the day, noisy mountain bikers at night, and generators blaring in the morning. The views are nice, bathrooms are great, and the LTE is fast, but not worth $20/night. Ignore the signs about low clearance when you come in, signs say 10'6", but this is from CDOT, there is actually 16' of clearance... more

“Good ol' National Park campground”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2016

Overall Rating

This is your standard National Park Campground. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either. Obviously if you are looking to explore the National Monument this is the place to camp. The trails just outside the campground are worth your time so don't miss out. The horizon at night is beaming with the city lights of Fruita... more
