This resort is a quaint, family owned resort that was absolutely perfect for our first time visiting the CB area. I did research on the nearby cabins and found that Rockey River was the best place that met our needs. Dog friendly was number one on our list, and they were very accommodating to our pets. They even offered pet... More

All of the running around we all do...gets to slow down at this wonderfully family oriented setting. We had a great time with all of the family (from 70-6). Great cabins. Super clean. No harm when sitting up by the river past dark. We had a wonderful time! You will not be disappointed!

Stayed in studio cabin,1 bedroom, 2 beds. The cabin is extremely clean and the setting is out of this world! It is very "rustic". Needs a firmer mattress on the beds and a little larger shower and they would be perfect. You cannot beat the location for any amount of $$.

We stayed for two nights with a group of 44 (some had to go elsewhere because we filled up the place) and it was ideal for us. It is a real getaway -- i.e., no TV and spotty Internet service -- but the office has WiFi and a computer if you go into technology withdrawal. Owners Rob and Dani Wattles... More

The cabins are older but they are very clean and virtually right on the banks of the Gunnison River.my two step sons and I stayed in cabin number 2 along with our dog for one night the cost was $120 plus tax plus a small fee for the dog....

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
