“Beautiful and clean ”

Reviewed May 13, 2019

Overall Rating

We paid $11 with national parks annual pass, without pass it would have been $22. A loop and B loop allow trailers/RVs. C loop doesn’t allow generators so it was nice and quite. All sites seemed to have plenty of space and amazing views. Clean bathrooms with flushing toilets and running water. Cell service fluctuated between 4G/LTE and... more

“Scenic, Clean, Roomy with Easy In & Out site. Level Pad with Ample Parking”

Awesome scenery with spectacular views of the Grand Valley. The National Monument is small but very scenic with many hiking and bike trails. All needed services are only 4 miles away in Fruita which is becoming famous for its Mountain Bike trails. The closest dump station is at the Fruita Visitor Center which is free, including pota... more

We just finished a 3 week vacation road trip from Missouri all the way to California. This was our first night camping spot! Although I can see how it could get busy and basically on top of each other during peak times, it was very nice for us! We stayed on site 75 and the wash station was in between our site and the next. Definitely l... more

“Only for small rigs”

Reviewed Apr 06, 2018

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

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

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

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

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
