  • We stayed at the island acres section for three nights. Chose this park because we were in the area to visit friends in Mesa, CO. Lovely state park. We had a huge site surrounded by grass. Gravel pull...  read more »
  • Loved the amenities, loved the convenience to things in the area, biking nearby is perfect. Hosts and State park staff were wonderful throughout the entire stay. Planning on going back in October. 
  • Better than average for sites and overall layout. Right in Fruita - beside the Colorado River, close to dining and Dinosaur Museum. 
  • Great place to camp and access the National Monument and surrounding sites. Pull through RV sites are private. Ours had a blossoming lavender plant. Bathrooms and showers all very clean. Water tastes good out of the tap. River nearby provides a nice walk and gorgeous sunset. Staff were very friendly. And no bathroom smell... Not sure how the other reviewers had any problems. Everything feels new and well maintained, including the built in shade at each site. Downsides: typical highway noise of an RV campground. Also, the Taco Bell across the street has what's gotta be the brightest light in the county. the pull throughs were a tiny bit small for our 24' 5th wheel, but certainly manageable. Would highly recommend and would stay there again.
  • Nicely laid out and maintained Colorado SP. Sites are big and well spaced, grounds are well maintained, laundry is available. Verizon and AT&T were both 4G and fast. There are a couple of lakes that are off limits due to E. Coli contamination but there is also the river if you want to let your dog swim (we'll hope it was ok). The best part is the access into Fuita, just a short easy bike ride away. The Copper Club brewery is a chill small town spot with excellent beer. The Hot Tomato has really good pizza. The only negative is the noise coming off I70 and an occasional whiff of something foul that makes you think a water treatment plant might be near by.
  • I like camping here. We camped here in tents. The site we were in this time, had very little shade. We had to move the picnic bench around through out the day. It's OK because most of the day we spent at the swim beach. The swimming pond is perfect for kids. Bring a floatation device and float around all day. Bring an umbrella or canopy because there is little shade. The mosquitoes are bad at sunset so bug spray is essential. They have nice amenities including showers, laundry room, a vending machine and playground. There is also a convenience store close. Nice place
  • Park itself was nice and convenient. Checking in the attendant was rude (I think trying to be funny.) A friend came to pick my husband up to go golfing and was told he had to pay even if he was just pulling in and out. Later on we came back to water coming out everywhere from our camper. A valve in the bathroom broke. The ranger pulled up and said they had turned our water off a couple hours ago. When we got into the camper this was clearly not the case. It was still on full blast. A friend came with a shop vacuum and was told he would have to pay $7. They even said "oh is that for site 11?, well can't the come get the vacuum from you at the gate?" Are you freaking kidding me?!?!? We told our waitress at dinner about it and she said when she stayed there they made her friend pay to drop her kids back off! Rude! Inconsiderate. I feel like if we needed a tow truck or something they would make them pay entry.
  • I would give them 0 Stars if I could - all for rudeness! It's a nice Campground. Just get reservations ahead of time so you don't have to talk to the jerks. There is no excuse for even bureaucrats to act that way.
