This facility is quite huge, which means that you won't be real cramped and have (some) room for privacy. Some sites have full hooks up (electricity, water, sewer), others only have electricity & water, while some are dry (none of the above). There are even sites with corrals for horses. The campground also features rental cabins, nice showers, ATV/UTV/Snowmobile rental... More

This is a very convenient location for visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. Our campsite was large and accommodated 2 vehicles including RV. Site was downsloping requiring a bit of leveling. Water, electric and sewer connections were good. Horseback riding and pony rides available at this resort and the kids enjoyed the horses corraled in several locations around the park. Restrooms/showers... More

Stayed here 4 nights in a TT. Sites are level, connections are good, bathrooms are superior in every way, from cleanliness to water pressure. Staff is friendly & they don't micromanage the guests. Other campers were all very nice. The riding stables charge a reasonable price. The petting zoo, playground, beach along the creek, baseball diamond, volleyball court, tennis court,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Winding River Resort. We took our 5th wheel camper and parked in spot number 41. It was a nice size stall. Very quiet and not many cars driving by. We enjoyed the ATV rental. We took the 3 hour tour and was about the perfect amount of time. I would recommend this camp ground... More

Great place to camp with family and friends. Awesome bathroom facilities with hot showers and nice flushable toilets. Playgrounds for children to play, horseback riding and general store for supplies. ATV rentals onsite and great trails for beginner to advanced dirt bike riders. Well maintained camp sites and friendly staff.

Stayed for 3 nights with 32 ft. camper with slides and tow vehicle in spot #13. Campground is somewhat isolated and very quiet. We saw a female moose each night of our stay which was cool! Check in was fine - make sure you ask for your receipt - I was not offered one. Spots could use a little maintenance... More

We've been to WRR many times, even during super busy holiday weekends. The place is unmatched in Colorado. The staff is amazing, and the resort is large, on the edge of RMNP, with spacious spots, treed spots (pine beetles did some damage), and great amenities. The petting zoo, store, playground, pancake breakfast picnic areas are awesome. The river is fun... More
