Truly Paradise on the river

This is the most beautiful RV park I have ever seen. It is surrounded and someone planted about a hundred flower baskets! Full service. Has super clean restroom and showers, laundry facilities, and it’s set beside a peaceful river. $75 a night. Will definitely be back! Love it!

Worth the price

This RV park is great. We were apprehensive staying here because it exceeded our budget (by a lot). But once we pulled in, we knew it was worth the money. The campground sits right on the river and is tucked away from the road. With only a couple dozen sites, it feels far more intimate than any of the neighboring parks. The people who checked us and and helped us get settled were very kind and had lots of great recommendations.

We look forward to a return visit!

Beautiful but Cozy

Smaller campground very close to RMNP. Sits directly beside the Big Thompson River. Spent three nights in July. Each site has a deck over the river. Can't beat the sound of water rushing. Several long-term campers and a group of "cabins" are the majority of the park. People running the campground and work camping are super friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are really small but clean. Only two showers and two stalls. Probably because the long terms are big units and the cabins have their own bathrooms. You do have to squeeze into your site but they help you back-in and pull out when you are ready to go. I do not believe they allow tent camping. We would stay again.
