Rockey River Resort
Reviewed August 31, 2012

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 sure stay here!

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, you won’t need to run 2 A/Cs with highs in the low 80’s). Your gracious hosts will do almost anything to make your stay a great one, and you’ll find a diverse group of residents ready to welcome you and assimilate you into the “Trailerhood”, whether you’re staying a day, or more than a month.

Oh, if you’re a former Corporate VP with a drinking problem (belligerent drunk), and enjoy threating young ladies and 85 year old Gentlemen (like you probably did back in the glory days), Rockey River just might not be the place for you. Otherwise it’s the greatest place to spend a summer vacation or extended stay, in one of the best locations in the world.

The RV park is NOT close to the river. The RV park is small and trailers are squeezed in, side by side. You can smell sewer when you try to find a place to sit outside. Also, unless you are one of the clique that park there year round, you are not welcome but are actually profiled/scrutinized. My husband brought our Airstream up 3 weeks before I came up but was asked to leave because he "scared" people! Sure he is a big burly guy with a bald head, a beard, tattoos on his arms, and wears sleveless shirts. But the guy is also a retired VP of ConAgra and how he choosed to look now is his purogitive. After seeing the park for one night I was so glad to move. I wouldn't have stayed there another night!

Althought the cabin we stayed in could have been shown a bit more TLC, had a fun time at the "resort". Lots for the kids to do ( bikes, rope swing, tether ball, basket ball). Cabins lack TVs and my cell phone reception was bad (there is wifi available in the office). Thought being unplugged for a couple of days was fantastic, though the kids may not entirely agree. Well worth it for a very laid back stay. Hosts were very friendly and helpful.
