I typically rate campgrounds as they fit into 1 of 5 categories. This campground will be rated as a Basecamp — grounds that offer a comfortable home base that you’re happy to return to after a day of exploring the surrounding area. Ratings for this category are based on: Value to cost: 5 Overall grounds: 5 Utility of sites (hookups, layout, accessibility): 5 Local Attraction Proximity: 4 Reservation Process/Ease of Getting a Site: 5 Amenities: 5 Customer Service: 5 Cleanliness: 5
This KOA Holiday is, by far, the nicest we’ve seen. It seems brand new with a lovely layout, nice patches of grass and room between spaces and the Colorado River running right by. In COVID times, pool areas were highly restricted, so we didn’t bother (there were tons of kids at the grounds over Labor Day weekend). They have an awesome water feature area and playground for kids too! There’s a little trail to explore the river island.
There is a nice gas station and market not 100’ from the front office. And gas prices are cheap! Front office staff were very friendly.
There was a set of bathrooms, showers and a small laundry room by us. We used neither but both seemed nice and were cleaned consistently every day. The park is very close to a few shops and restaurants in the small town of Silt. Glenwood Springs is about 20 minutes down the road… easy access to the Hot Springs. And Rifle State Park is about 30 minutes away. It’s super easy access right off 70 freeway, but no car noise.
The hookups were laid out nicely and worked well. WiFi was as good as we’ve ever experienced at a campground. We paid for a patio and enjoyed the “fancier” setup. One word of advice… if you want to book a site by the river (they look awesome), make sure you have some bug spray… mosquitos seem to be abundant closer to the water.
Yes, its a nice campground. It is close to Town if Glenwood Springs. Yes, the train runs late at night and early in the morning and will wake you. The advertised “internet” is NOT available at campsites. There is a “unsecured” hotspot at the bar and grill and at laundry. Cable box was broken and no offer to fix, since its owned by 3rd party cable company. Place is fairly large and busy and had 2 washers and 2 dryers, $4 per load. Its NOT worth $75/night!
Wow! This is a beautiful spot. The lower campground is for tents and smaller RVs, but is definitely the spot to be if you can swing it! This campground has cabins, glamping tents, tent pads and spaces for RVs. We camped in spaces 17 and 18 in the lower campground right by the river. The “resorts has a rafting company, zip line, and restaurant/bar on premises.
- Easy to access off of I-70, but you feel a million miles away
- Gorgeous scenery all around
- Very easy access to the bike/walk trail through Glenwood Canyon
- 5 to 10 minute drive to Glenwood Springs attractions - Hot Springs, Gondola, downtown shopping a land restaurants
- Spaces are EXTREMELY close together
- The train runs by, which is very nice to see and experience as it runs through the canyon, but at 5 am, that sucker is LOUD
- It’s a pricey campground, but could be worth it if you take advantage of all the amenities and it fits in your plans
Overall, this is a great campground. I might save it for a mid-week stay or slightly off season so you aren’t stacked on top of your neighbors.
We had site # 26 it had water & electric hook up, picnic table, fire pit & a metal shelter over the table for shade & wind. Great view of the lake but the lake level was down so we weren't as close as you could be but still a great lake & mountain view. I have Verizon I had 2 to 3 bars & could stream Pandora. We had deer, Western Meadowlarks, bluebirds & magpies. The camp host was awesome. Nice clean restrooms and clean campground.
The campground is close to one entrance of the Black Canyon of Gunnison (one of the least visited national Park) it's it's deeper than the grand canyon & narrow. Nice little hikes & pull over view points easy to enjoy. Across from the overview loop there was a small campground we drove through and some viewpoints there. A small trail Chasem took you right to the edge there was a chain link fence between you & the canyon. We saw Elk on the way in & out of the park.
Take some time to drive to the shoreline & set up your chairs & relax. Fishing along there is good.
The campground is big with several loops & is maintained well.
I had scheduled three campsites, the suites, and the Canyon Club for a wedding. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we were forced to cancel the venue, which we communicated prior to the 60 day time frame for room and site refunds (other than first night). We were told by the caretaker of the property, that the owners would have to be contacted. We requested to speak directly to the owners and have waited over three weeks to no avail. We filed a BBB complaint and have heard nothing. Our calls requesting information are ignored and messages not returned. This property is not ran ethically and will not communicate with guests in a timely manner.
