Only minus is that the sites are a little close together, but the grounds are gorgeous; abundant wildflowers, grazing deer, and a wonderful campground host, Dave. Quick drive to GCNP entrance, general store with all the essentials PLUS lots of cool souvenirs right across the road from the campground.
Nice, clean park. Pretty views, great swim beach. Didn't try the fishing. Nice space between sites BUT site # 7 looked liked the "Amityville Horror", being infested by biting flies. Would come back except for the almost 3 hour drive might be a deal breaker.
Arrived early evening (6-ish) after rejecting a disbursed campsite which wound through "Hills Have Eyes" terrain. Immediately accommodated by the nicest lady, and led to campsite on a grassy opening a stone's throw away from a bend in the Rio Grande. RV area was out of site/ out of mind. The 4 or 5 tent sites were secluded, beautiful grounds,clean restrooms and showers just built. Fire pit provided and a bbq grill offered if needed. Would recommend and will return again, hopefully for 2 nights. Watch a skyful of stars and then fall asleep to the sound of the river.
Been going here since 1991. We go behind the reservoir and follow signs to Packer (Yes, named after Alferd ) Gulch. Abundant disbursed camping. Water pump at the reservoir. Target shooting and ATV roads. Rough road going in but have done it in everything from a Taurus, to a mini van, to a jeep with pop -up. Fallen wood everywhere.
