We stayed at this park on our way to our summer workamping gig in Ouray Colorado so we only needed a place for one night. As we pulled in the first this we noticed was the “No RV Sites Available” sign.
Our first overall impression of this park was that it was possibly under construction. It was a smaller park that was laid out in an organized fashion. Under the KOA rating system, this park is considered a Journey park.
The check-in process went very smooth as do most KOA’s. Since we are KOA workampers and were on our way to a workamping job at a KOA we get vouchers to stay at KOA’s along the way. That made our cost for this park $0.
When we originally booked this campground he told us we would be in site #39. He wound up putting us in site #16. As it turned out, when we checked out site #39, we realized we would never have fit there.
Where Are We Putting Our Truck
Speaking of fitting, the sites here were all very tight. After we unhooked our truck from the RV, we had trouble fitting it onto our spot. The lady in the spot next to us offered to let us park across her site as she had a smaller Class C and had a little extra room. Even though we didn’t take her up on her offer, we thanked her. We thought that was an awesome
Where Is That Sewer Hose?
We wound up squeezing the truck next to our RV. That left little room to get into our passenger door and no room for a fire as we were right next to our fire pit. Some of the other sites were a little larger but not that much bigger. Also, our neighbor’s sewer hose connection lined up in the middle of our site.
The campground was not a very large one but offered a few different amenities. There was an outside vendor that was onsite giving guided horseback riding through the trails. There was an additional fee outside of the KOA fees.
The views of the surrounding areas were spectacular!!! Every way you turned was an awesome view. We were even treated to an awesome sunset that night.
What You Will Find
The roads were all gravel and level. There was a small playground and a dog park located in the back of the park near the restrooms. The set of 4 restrooms/showers in the rear of the park were clean and there was one bathroom in the main office. Also in the rear part of the main office was the laundry room. The laundry room consisted of 2 washers and 2 dryers. Everything was super clean.
The office/store had limited supplies. They carried things like dry goods, some RV supplies, drinks, and some ice cream bars.
This park has some room for improvement. It looks like it is on the right track and after talking to the manager it seems he has some good ideas. As for now, the park is ok for a couple of nights. The views were awesome and the park was quiet so you will enjoy a good night’s sleep. It is not near any airports, train tracks, or major interstates.
