We camped here for two week-day nights in a tent in July. I think the place is over priced, but the campground was pretty full, so the rates are probably okay for the market. The mens bathroom in the main building needs some maintenance, but it was clean and there were enough showers and toilet stalls. The staff was very... More

This place was fine, but nothing special. I have a four-year-old, and I got tired of walking the half-mile round trip to the bathroom. I also got tired of the steady stream of heavy vehicles flowing past our campsite -- RVs, horse trailers, trucks, it was neverending! Our campsite (# 52) was fine -- pretty good shielding from neighbors on... More

The lady I talked to when I made my reservations was the only nice staff member I talked to in the whole place. First of all, there is only wi-fi near the bathrooms, up by the front and VERY far from most of the campsites. There is not even a picnic table to sit at there if you want to... More

We stayed 2 nights in "The Hideout" camper cabin and loved it! Complete with hummingbirds, wildflowers, petting zoo, and mountain views, it was magical for us and the kids. Our cabin was slightly larger than what I consider average and surrounded by wildflowers. There was a hammock outside our cabin, which was fun to swing in and watch the hummingbirds... More

Our 8 day stay started off with 2 free pancake tickets while there was four in our party and each person in the party was supposed to get one. Then come to find out you are only able to keep two of your horses at your campsite in eye view while your other horses are put up to half a... More

Spent 2 nights at this wonderful place. The RV spots are huge, nothing like the usual cramped spaces at other parks. We had an amazing view of Rocky Mountain National Park and even had a moose stroll by our campsite! In addition to horseback riding, there is ATV riding rental on the ranch with trails directly connected. Will definitely return!!

This is a peaceful location with great views and nearby activities. Slept in tents for three nights in late summer and had bears trotting through the campsite every night. Look forward to returning and going horse riding.

We have enjoyed sleigh rides here in the winter, and hay rides in the summer. They never fail to impress! Their staff is professional, the horses are beautiful, and the chili, burgers and hot dogs are tasty.

We have stayed at Winding River a couple years in a row and cant wait to return. It is a great place to stay that is really convenient to RMNP and to the town of Grand Lake. The wildlife around the resort and the mountain views are amazing. The place is clean, staff is friendly and helpful. The pancake breakfast... More

While this resort is primarily for RVers and campers, I stayed in the Larkspur room - one of two guest rooms in the building that houses the store and office. These rooms are upstairs and are fairly spacious. They include a microwave and refrigerator and the basic dishes and flatware for two people. However, they do not offer a sink... More
