We stayed at Elk Ridge Campground in space 96, and thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful park. It was very quiet, and even though there were other campers nearby, the large sites, spacing between sites, and abundant trees really dampen any sound. We thought we would have some view of the reservoir from up here, but the abundance of trees pretty much blocks the water and mountain views. Still, we didn't spend too much time there, since we were mainly in the area for viewing the spectacular fall aspen in the mountains around Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride. This is a perfect location for accessing those areas, and Montrose is nearby for shopping and most services. We were surprised that such a jewel of a park was so uncrowded during peak fall colors in the area. Hope it stays that way!
We only stayed here one night on our way home from Yellowstone National Park, but we really liked this RV park. The staff (owners) were very helpful and friendly, and our pull-through site enabled us to stay hooked up so we could get an early start in the morning without disturbing our neighbors too much. Their location is convenient but far enough from the interstate that the noise level is pretty low. My only complaint was that not all sites were furnished with picnic tables, and we happened to be located in one which did not have a table. I don't know why this was, but we didn't bother to complain for such a short stay. If we come this way again, we'll definitely stay here again.
We stayed at Moraine Park campground for four nights, and really enjoyed our stay. The elk were in rut and it was a very short drive to get to a spot for close-up photography (although there were often some inconsiderate people who blocked the roadway at times). We stayed in C loop, space 239, and the only problem was that the space was a pull-through with barely enough room for our travel trailer and pickup truck, which protruded into the roadway a foot or so. The reservation site had addressed the length of the travel trailer, so we thought we were OK, but it was a tight squeeze. But staying on the outside of this loop gave us a hillside location and we were able to watch and listen to some of the elk from the hillside, which really added to the overall wonderful experience.
This was a wonderful RV park, and because it was near the end of the season, the park was less than half full. We had requested and were given a back-in site along the rear boundary of the park bordering the Gallatin National Forest, and it was very nice having dense forest right behind our site. The site was very roomy for our travel trailer and pickup. One nice surprise was having a coupon each day for two free hours of Wi-Fi service, which suited our needs perfectly. Another nice bonus was having the nearby aspen trees cover some of our site with a carpet of bright yellow leaves when the wind picked up, like a snowfall of gold.
This is a nice park for an overnight stay, and everything is as advertised, except it is very noisy. I would give this park a higher score, but the highway noise went on all night, and we even had a few jet airliners on final approach zoom very low directly overhead. I also heard the low rumble of a diesel locomotive a couple of times late in the evening. I had to resort to running the A/C fan all night (in lieu of heat) and using earplugs in order to get some decent rest. The reviewers who said this is a quiet place must be hearing impaired or have a soundproof RV. I expected much better for a park that got a 8.5 overall rating in the Trailer Life directory.
