I've never met anyone so rude as the manager of this campground, both on the phone and in person. Then, the campground was such a disappointment; all rocks, dirt and nothing else. The pool was there, but hasn't been operational for a long time. Camp store was sadly lacking in anything you'd want to buy. Overall, not a pleasant stay... More

OK first of all this is a RV park and as such you should expect small sites all close to each other with no privacy. We booked this placed after Monarch Pass Campground was closed for the 4th July due to flood and I wanted a place near by for a night only. Place is by the road so no... More

Don't stay here!!Young girl was nice when checked in. A young couple was camped in our site. We told them that was our site. They said a man told them to just camp anywhere. We went back to office and told the young girl. She said that wasn't right. She told them to move. We had to wait for them... More

It seems this is a trend... We routinely stay at RV parks during the winter to ski local mountains and not have to board our dogs. We've made April trips to ski Monarch for over a decade- in fact I have stayed at this park several previous times. Because we are skiing, I asked the manager about a late checkout... More

Our dog got off her leash at 7:30 a.m. during a winter storm and the manager absolutely freaked out by yelling at the top of his lungs at my wife over and over while we were trying to get control of our dog. I have never seen such treatment of a customer like this in my 53 years of life.... More

There's a lovely creek running between the RV and tent sites that the kids really enjoyed playing in .... Perfect for our first time in Salida, close to town and on 50 so easy to get west to continental divide and back into town! Next time we'll probably head up to monarch camp sites :)

We camped here in June and from the moment we arrived were transported back to the kind of camping adventure we had remembered as kids! The Manager was a soft spoken woman who made us feel instantly welcome as she invited us to go up and just view the tent areas before we decided which we wanted. The views were... More

For the past 5 yrs we have stayed here each year for a month at a time during the summer. We travel in a 42' coach towing a 16'trailer with our off road Jeep. The camp spots are just long enuff for us to fit. Granted, the campground and interior roads do need major help and improvement. Blame the owners.... More

We enjoyed this campground because it is sort of a wilderness spot, great sightseeing area and not from town, the restrooms are very clean and the staff is great also, good showers and lots of hot water, roads could use some help but no big deal. We will come back here again

Stayed for a week in this poorly maintained park. Paid way too much for the dump that it was. This campground's prime came many years ago. It sits on a terraced hillside, and has not been maintained. Consequently, the hillside and roadways have become badly eroded. The roadways are too narrow and trees have been planted at the entrance and... More
