This is our 2nd time here. VERY big rig friendly. Clean. Easy access to I-40 with Loves at the corner. Perfect for overnight or just a few days to check out Amarillo. Negatives are the sites have no picnic table, fire ring or BBQ, and some I-40 noise which the a/c easily drowns out, but sites are all paved and level with lots of space for putting out your slides and parking. There are temporary workers who tend to be clustered in their own area. Check out Abuelo Restaurant while in the area; it is awesome!
Really nice and spacious. We stayed in the section with 50 amp. Our site had a covered picnic table, fire ring, BBQ grill and ample parking. It was quiet, we were just across from the river and had great cell service so my Verizon hotspot worked really well. Don't miss the fantastic BBQ restaurant in town. Park is about 10 minutes from I-40 but worth the drive. We looked at the shaded 30 amp spots and they are really nice. Some are riverfront.
The owners were very nice and the park was very clean. In fact, they were such nice people that I hate to give the park such a low rating but $35 and No Sewer in a pull through sight was unreasonably high and the truth is the highway noise was the loudest I have ever heard at any park. We might of well just parked in the emergency lane of I-40 and spent the night. I have stayed in many KOA and highway and train noise is just to be expected but this was the worse. KOA must have laughed all the way to the bank when they sold these people this property.
Awesome...wonderful campground. Wish they had sewer we would have stayed 2 weeks. Lots are spacious and private. Waterfront lots are really nice. One section is very wooded for tent camping. We were in a 40' motor home and picked a larger lot that was not as shady. Quiet. My MiFi card was slow. Hosts are super. Nice dock and ramp. We will be back.
The park is immaculately clean and everything worked as expected. Only about 1 mile from Manitou Springs. The park was very noisy with sirens, motorcycles, helicopters and 5:40am dumpster collections. The city trail which run behind the park offered opportunity to view all sorts of wildlife from deer & squirrels to sleeping vagrants & druggies. The sites were tight so exiting the motor home without hitting the car with our door was challenging. Water pressure could fluctuate up to 80-85 PSI so we filled our tank and ran off the pump. We will stay somewhere else next time.
Rustic Park. We enjoyed our premium site that was parallel to the river. The back in sites looked a bit tight but they did back to the river. We enjoyed evening fires with the camp host who is friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was the fasted I have ever seen at any park. Our cell booster got us a weak signal with Verizon otherwise there is no cell service. The camp host has a phone for emergencies. The mountain water tasted GREAT!! Lots of wildlife (deer, mountain sheep & bear) to view and they stay on the other side of the river. Small park and there are some year round residents. We looked at other parks in Estes but in our opinion they were no better. So we stayed here an extra week.
This place is one of the bigger rip offs you will find but your choices are limited in the area. We camped in the gravel parking lot in back. Water and sewer worked well. New picnic table and fire pit. I just don't like the gravel parking lot atmosphere. The Wi-Fi is totally unusable and I figured out why. They want you to come up to their office and use their "Pay by the Minute" Wi-Fi. Sites in the older section with trees are extremely un-level. We saw many coaches propped up on their leveling jacks with wheels off the ground. That made me glad to be in the level gravel parking lot. Also, their food is extremely over priced, but there is a Subway at the corner. We will not be back.
Very nice friendly owners. New and very clean. Easy access to lots of Jeep and ATV trails. All utilities worked well. Spacious lots. On the downside, the campground is a large gravel lot but that is to be expected in Utah. The owners are planting trees. Only 10 miles for I-70. Easy big rig access. We would stay here again if in the area.
Easy interstate access. Pull-through site was tight turn for our 40' coach. Had to drop toad to maneuver around. The campground is well laid out offering lots of privacy when sitting out. Enjoyed the covered picnic table. Unfortunately, the fire pit was not installed properly and thus unusable. I mentioned it to the workers but they did not seem to care. Just to make note: the e-coli levels are high in the lakes so you can not go into them, and I surely would not eat the fish. The campground is located right next to a sewer treatment plant. We did not smell sewer gas on our visit.
We had a very nice lakeside spot with covered picnic table. Fishing was great. Easy access to Grand Mesa. However, the bathrooms were run down and nasty. Showers were disgusting. They were pay showers that liked to take your money. Camp hosts were grumpy. You would think a place without full hook-ups would try to keep the bathrooms in good repair. We were saddened because Colorado State Parks are usually our favorites to stay in. Bring your bird feeders. There are millions of hummingbirds here.
This is our 2nd time staying at Ridgeway. We were in the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk section this time so that we could have full hook-ups and a pull through site. Everything was what we expected. Colorado State Parks are a real deal! As far as I am concerned if you want to be near Ouray, this is the place to camp. We will return.
The park was clean and owners were very friendly. The donut breakfast and pot luck dinner was nice. Lots of 4-wheeling. We did not like how crowded everything was. We were so close to our neighbors that we could not open our awning and had to park our car so close to the camper that we could not open the door all the way. Our site was a gravel parking lot. We will look for other arrangements next time in Lake City.
We had a really great site in the back next to a pond where we enjoyed watching the family of ducks. The park is clean and well shaded. Our 40' coach maneuvered the turns easily. Park is under new ownership this year. Owners and staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the cookout with band. Wi-Fi needs work. Great location. This is the best park we have found in Gunnison.
An older, well maintained park with huge lots. Some with shade. Friendly and helpful owners. Happy guests. Good Wi-Fi. Was once a trailer park but is almost fully converted to camping. The few full time trailers that are here are neat and attractive. We will definitely stay here again!
In 14 years of traveling, this is the most over-rated campground we have ever experienced. We expected so much more for $60 per night. It started with the 30 minute check-in experience & nobody escorting us to our site, followed by the 34 PSI water pressure (I could not even wash the soap from my hair). Flower planters showcased dead sticks and weeds. Grass at our site was all dead. The fitness room had broken and missing equipment, and there wasn't much there to begin with. We were so sad that the management company is not bringing this campground up to where it could/should be!! We have stayed in much better for much less.
3/10 mile from interstate. Quiet park overlooking private lake. Bring your fishing pole no license required and they have bass. Only bad was driveway is narrow covert so arrive during daylight. friendly, helpful host. Clean park. We will overnight here again
Does not get much better than this. Clean and well maintained. Friendly owners. Big rig friendly. Lots of pull through sites. We stayed 16 days. Would stay here again. Probably not a first choice for long stay with children.
It is sad how badly mismanaged this park is because it could be a really nice one. The internet that they advertise will not get you onto the net. They are quick to tell you that nobody else is having problems and the truth is everybody is complaining. The dog waste stations were overflowing with filled bags for days on end. Nice new restrooms with filthy showers. Very windy while we were here. Easy interstate access. Priced like a first rate park but really below average.
