The park is overrun with campers who are here permanently. There is no tv reception , and no cable. The run into Salida is about 10 miles. The mountains around the park are breathtaking and there is a really pretty stream running on the back of the property. The campsites are very unkempt and ugly and the appearance of the... More

We will never stay here again. The grounds are only standard. No amenities. And the power kept going out. We had to reset everything in the RV when this happened which was 6 to 7 times a dat. Seems they do not have enough power for this size of park. People were friendly though and somewhat helpful.

My husband and I are traveling the US currently so we have been able to stay at some really nice places, some in between and some not so nice. As I read the reviews about the old management we decided to give it a shot anyways! I am so glad we did! The gentleman at the front desk was so... More

The pictures on their web site are deceptive. This rv park is in a dry and dusty canyon with constant high winds. We drove into the driveway and had to cross a very bad spot in the driveway which was a gravel dirt road. We had reserved our space weeks ahead but were told that our spot was being worked... More

The NEW Staff was awesome!!! I would definitely come back here again. Bad reviews were from previous ownership. Spent three days here and would do it again. We brought along 3 families and had a great time. The staff also gave us infomation on a local fishing lake so we ended up having some surf and turf for our final... More

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
