This could be a nice park. The sites are above the lake, but it's so low that water sports are not allowed. It is gravel and a a tad rough around the edges. We were the only campers the night we stayed. From Silverton take TX 86 W 5 mi and TX 207 N 7 mi.
This city "park" is a level gravel area with nothing but full hook-ups to recommend it. There is one grill and one table with cover. The first 2 nights are free and then it's $10. Nice town, but road noise quite constant. OK for overnight.
What's not to like when your view is of the tallest sand dunes in North America. Sites in loop 2 are bigger than loop 1, but still small. Many require your across the road site holder to be absent to be able to back in. That said, if you can fit in here, don't miss this. Since 2009, about half the sites are reservable.
The bark beetle has eliminated all shade from this campground. The lakefront sites do not have hook-ups. Most of the sites are small and a tad uneven. There is some road noise. West entrance to RMNP is about 10 miles.
The location,choice of hook-up types,and horse corrals are the main reasons to stay here. We did not like the lack of any real shade and the many uneven and muddy sites. Yes, you will see moose, but way too many ATV's bring you back to reality.
This poor rating is because even at the end of October there were houseflies everywhere. Our flogger seemed to attract more. If not for flies it would rate 9. We also caution that the sandy trails hold a lot of burrs that seem to jump onto pets paws.
We could see the Flaming Gorge Reservoir from our dining window. The campground is about 10 miles from the visit center for the Gorge Dam and the great flyfishing on the Green River. About 1/2 sites are reservable. Water is from spigots, but available for RV tank filling near entrance.
Set in a beautiful caldera surrounded by mountain vistas, this is a serene RV park setting. The hosts provided detailed information on local attractions. It is the most pet friendly park we've visited with a 6 acre run.
This is one of 3 parks at Ruedi Reservoir which is on the Fryingpan River about 15 miles from Basalt. It is close to the boat launch area and loaded with kids on summer weekends. There are a few water spouts in the camp, but the only hose comparable source is at the dump station. The use of the dump station requires an extra fee of $6 and it is quite difficult to access due to sharp turns and poor paving.
