We loved this campground. The location is right outside the west entrance to Rocky Mountain (you actually enter the park to get to the campground). The area is surrounded by wilderness and we saw lots of elk and some moose near the campground. The campground has numerous activities for kids (horseback riding, petting zoo, etc) and has plenty of amenities... More

Kids rode bikes without a worry. Horse rides, and bike rides-nice neighbors who took time to introduce their horses to our kids. Views abound and yes if you can't live without wifi and cell service we both got perfect service in the middle of the park!!!! Quiet and restful and not far from the town of Grand Lake which is...

This is a fantastic park. The RV spots in the back have no concrete pads, so it can get muddy when it rains. If you have a horse this is a great place for them and you. We rode ATV's - available right at the resort. A great little zoo for the kids, too.

Stayed with folks in their motorhome during Labor Day weekend this year and in a cabin Memorial Day weekend over a year ago. This compound has a small general store, clean shower buildings, horse back riding, playgrounds for the kids and miscellaneous activities. It is located just across the river from the west side of Rocky Mountain NP so there... More

We spent a week at Winding River Resort with our two personal horses. The riding is amazing. The campground is nice, clean with not much leveling needed. The horse pens are nice and large. We cannot say enough good things about this place. All the employees were friendly and very helpful. The amount of moose, elk, deer, etc was unbelievable.... More

Stayed in a cabin the last couple nights of our trip after traveling all over the state. Great place to relax and unwind. Kids loved petting the animals, throwing rocks in the river, the pancake breakfasts on the weekend were fun, and taking the 2 hour trail ride into RMNP, the first horse ride for the boys, was a hi-lite...

Best ever camping experience! Awesome service, clean restrooms, friendly staff and campers. Great location for free outdoor activities - running, hiking, biking, kayaking and swimming. We did not want to leave! Go during the week if u can. Gets a little crowded during the weekend rush in the summer. Definitely coming back. Would live here if we could!

Just returned home from Winding River Resort. We stayed two nights in a non-utility tent site. The site was very roomy, could have easily put up two tents. The restroom and showers were clean and only a short walk away. Everyone was well behaved and quiet hours were followed. Seemed like there were plenty of activities, though we did not... More
