Empty nesters enjoying the outdoors with our 2 dogs. 41ft 5th Wheel.

Great laid back campground with full hook ups

This was a great campground just south (3 miles) from Meeker Colorado. Roads and lots were gravel but well maintained. Sites are packed rock and pretty level. Full hooks ups with sewer, everything worked great. Even had good WiFi that allowed us to work all week. James the host was very friendly and accommodating. Right along the white river, flowing strong in late May. Saw deer 2 mornings. Sites are well spaced out, site 14 had a huge front area next site was ~50 yards away. Occasional road noise, but mostly the sound of the river. It is a no-frills campground, which suited this week stay just fine.

Great 1 Week Stay - Mid May

This is a 50+ community - for the first time I was really glad I was in my fifties.   Host are great and very accommodating.   Just ask and they will help you at.    Stayed for a week in one of the back-in sites in the South section of the campground.   The Uncompaghre River was about 30 yards behind the camp site - a short walk through the tall tree line.    The North Section of the campground are pull-through sits with great shade.   Tall Elms stand over nearly the entire North section.   Paved roads throughout.  large cement pads for the trailer and large concrete patios off each pad.   Grass otherwise covers the site.   Sites are large, no issues to fit my 43' 5th wheel and Truck.   12 miles to Montrose - a cute yet full sized town - anything you need is there.  Delta is about 15 minutes in the other direction.    Camp is located on the edge of the little town of Olathe.   They have a few restaurants, a new Brewery that just opened, a liquor store and a gas station.   Unable to venture into Olathe - do to COVID lock down. WiFi was good throughout the campground.

6 Night Stay

Friendly staff, easy bookings. Spaces are close together and many force you and your neighbor into the same grass area - doors open towards each other. You will certainly be forced to meet and interact with others. We were somewhat mid-COVID so they did very well to space people apart To be able to maintain distance. WiFi was pretty poor and I had a booster antenna as well. No cable. Everything else was very good - Power, Water, Sewer. A fair amount of road noise and lots of motorcycle road noise on the weekend. Positioned Against a rock ridge and had trails that went for a few miles - maybe more. Easy to get to even more trails and lots of hiking options. Liquor Store and Convenience Store across the street. Gas, Home Depot and a Camping World were within 2 miles. I think this campground would feel very tight when nearly full during non-COVID times.

2 week stay

Stayed 2 weeks at the end of February. Very clean, well maintained, didn’t feel too crowded on neighbors. Mix of full/long timers and some of us Nomads. A few social events but not a wide variety of activities. Only down-side was the road noise. Only a 2 lane road out front but more noise than expected. And sometimes disturbed the outdoor time. Didn’t hear the noise with the RV all closed up. Liquor store, gas/convince, couple restaurants within walking distance. Small brewery less than a mile down the road.

First to Review
Overnight Stay Denver to Austin

Convenient location passing thru area. Very friendly staff, very clean. Full hook ups. Many pull through sites. There is a Love’s just up the road, could fuel up before getting back on the road and run up for any conveniences. Far enough from highway that you didn’t hear the noise. Large area for the dogs. Maybe a little pricey for an overnight stay, but if you want clean, easy, safe and convenient this is the place.

Great state park

Only one night passing thru, but this goes on the return for an extended stay list Campsites were large and spread out Large lake and water access Power and water at campsites Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. No problem getting thru park with 41ft 5th wheel. Hiking, water, open space - a perfect setting for a longer stay. Covered picnic tables, flat camp sites.

Sunday-Wed stay

Full hook ups. Friendly staff. Roads were paved it a little run down. Crushed stone pads were flat and easy to stabilize. Also good for keeping the dirt out. Cement area with picnic table was at every site. Several long time guests on East edge the rest of the park was wide open. Had good space for dogs. Backed up to a river and had its own pond. Along the river there was no issue with road noise. No recycle collection or Propane on site. Was a nice quiet stay in Early March

Lake Meade State Park in March

Stayed 2 nights in early March.   Lake View site #22, beautiful view from the lake's edge.   Most sought after site.    Was nearly all alone.  Power and Electric hook-ups.   Many hook-up options but no sewer.    Did have a dump station.   Roughly $20/night for premium site.    Some spots are a little close together, but the lake views and otherwise open areas make up for it.
