This place is wonderful. We are so relaxed after visiting here for 2 nights, next time will definitely be longer. We stayed in a studio cabin closest to the river. (#4) It is 30 ft from the river, but honestly, how close do you need to be? You can hear the river from the cabin, and see a bit of... More

We have stayed in dozens of cabins in Colorado over the years and rank this as #1! Rocky River Resort is sparkling clean and the grounds are meticulously maintained. They are located between Gunnison and Crested Butte, which makes day trips to either location ideal. The deck off the Gunnison River is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee... More

We have been visiting Gunnison every August for over 10 years and always loved our stay at Rocket River Resort! Quite frankly it is the only reason we make a yearly trip there! The clean fully furnished cabins are perfect for us! The owners could not be more hospitable and friendly! Always wood cut for a big bonfire they have... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 9 month old son and our dog. We stayed in the one room cabin with a kitchen and a bathroom. Everything was really clean, it was a little outdated but I think that added to the rustic charm. The grounds were very clean and well kept as well. It was a little... More

This is the second time I stayed at Rockey 's and have to say that it's a great little place. The cabins are older, but very clean and everything was in working order. The small kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. Even better, our cabin was right across from the Gunnison river, and the whole complexes in... More

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights in September for our anniversary in one of the rustic cabins. Found out from the gracious and accomdating hosts that The cabins were moved from Blue Mesa in the 1960's before the Gunnison River was dammed to create The Blue Mesa Reservoir. The cabins date back to the 1800's and are beautifully... More

We stayed at the Rockey River in September and enjoyed the tranquility of the place surrounded by the fall colors and Gunnison River flow. The management is extremely competent with a sincerity not always found in lodges of this type. Grounds beautiful. Only 4 miles to town. Features rustic and modern cabins and the price was right. We'll come back... More

We loved our spur of the moment get-away to the Rockey River! Our cabin was clean and had everything we needed. The hosts usually require a 2-night stay, but gave us a decent rate for 1-night and accommodated my niece's request at the last minute to surpise us by giving her the cabin next door. Great location on the Gunnison... More

This was our 2nd year staying at the Rockey River Resort. Stayed in cabin 3, which was near the river and we could hear it at night (lovely). The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cabin was small but perfect size for 2 people and very clean. We look forward to visiting the area next year and will for... More

Rockey River Resort is located on the Gunnison river with 15 Cabins and 24 RV sites (mostly full all summer so make reservations early). RV Sites are approximately 150ft. from a quarter mile of Trophy Fishing along the Gunnison. Sites are large (approx. 30’ x 50’) fully equipped, with fantastic water, sewer and 30 AMP Service (but don’t sweat it,... More
