We were looking for a place to overnight in our motorhome between Cheyenne Wy and Moab UT. Rimrock Campground is located about 3 miles west of Meeker on Highway 64 overlooking the White River Valley. This area is NW Colorado's sheep range. We passed huge herds of grazing sheep and saw several Basque-type sheepherder wagons.
The RV row we were in along the road was mostly seasonal campers with maybe 2 or 3 sites available for travelers like us to reserve. Several other RV and tent sites and cabins were spread out around their grounds. Our gravel site had full hookup and some shade trees on the west side. The seasonal population were a fairly quiet bunch and the grounds were rustic but kept up. The restroom/shower building is older and well-used but OK clean and showers had plenty of hot water. Laundry facilities are available.
The campground sits below huge rimrock cliffs which make for a pretty backdrop but block all TV and radio reception (which explains why all the seasonals had satellite dishes). So plan for a quiet evening of conversation or bring a good book to read. My Verizon wireless cell worked OK as did the Wi-Fi if you sat on their office's front porch. They give a Good Sam discount. See their website www.rimrockcamp.com for additional info.
