    Fairly typical KOA but with a few long-term residents

Not so with this campground: it has a fair amount of trees and the space between sites is decent if not roomy. The sites in the front are a bit tighter but have the taller trees that provide shade for the RVs. In the back of the campground, the sites are separated by grassy islands, so there’s more space, but most of the trees are shorter. Many of these sites are occupied by seasonal or full-time residents: we were probably placed in that area because we were staying for two weeks.The campground has the typical KOA amenities - propane refills, camp store, laundry room, a playground, and a pool - but it also has a hot tub, a covered communal patio with grills, and recycling bins (paper, cans, and plastic). The fenced dog park was pretty small and didn’t get much use. Most of us walked our dogs on the leashed dog walk adjacent to a small canal running along the length of the campground: convenient except for the mosquitoes.In terms of cell service, I was getting 15Mbps down and 8Mbps up with my Verizon Jetpack hotspot with MIMO antenna: good enough to stream TV although with pauses and periods of low quality, particularly in the evenings. My AT&T phone (which I didn’t actively use for data) got 63Mbps down and 12Mbps up.The campground is only a few block from the center of town: you could walk to several bars and restaurants. The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is only 20 minutes away via US-50.We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

This park is clearly well maintained and manicured. The sites and roads are all gravel and very easy to maneuver even with a big rig. Each site is well spaced from the next with grass, curbs, and shade trees. Most of the spaces are long pull-throughs, but even the back in sites appeared to be plenty long for rigs of 40 or more feet. All of the utilities were in great working order and conveniently placed. There were amenities such as laundry, playground, swimming pool, dog walk, and free cable tv, and while not free the staff picked up an empty propane tank and returned it to our site filled for a most reasonable fee. There are a couple of rows for those who are staying long term, but those are at the back of the park and the rigs were well kept and sites nice and tidy. This campground is just enough away from the main roads to be nice and quiet. We would certainly stay here again.

    Close-ish to the national park

We didn't have a reservation prior to showing up and were lucky to get one of the last spots. We stayed in spot 18 which is the first pull-through spot as you enter the campground. That meant we got some headlights and a bit of noise in the evening but nothing too crazy.The campground is one of the closest campgrounds to the national park but it's still a bit of a drive up to the visitor center. We were a bit late coming back down in the morning and requested a late checkout but our spot was already reserved. They let us park in the overflow parking behind the office so we came back and moved it before heading back into the national park.We walked over to the basketball court and shot some hoops and walked around the campground. It seems like about half the campground is permanent (or long-term) residents but everything is tidy and the trees offer some nice shade.

So, it's convenient to many places in town and Black Canyon of Gunnison NP. The sites were a little snug for my 32TT but definitely not the worst I've seen. Thats if your staying in the front of the park. Stay away from the back of the park! Full timers slums... and the dog run... well... filled with trash. The restrooms and shower houses were nice, but the laundry room was something to be desired (do your laundry before you get here).The full hook ups were in an easy to get to place and we did have a decent picnic table, but... just not our cup of tea!

    Tent sites are outside of the campground and not really nice. Unfenced, everybody can pass by, so somebody stole our folding table and a new carpet, no refund or discount by the owner (worth 100 Dollar!!!)! Pool closed, even it was really hot during the day. Bathroom clean and RV Sites really nice.

    We are not fans of RV parks but this one was fine. But that is mainly because many sites were not occupied. We had a corner lot which we like. Bathrooms were immaculate, they were just remodeled. Owners were friendly.

We had made reservations ahead, good thing because they seem to be full every night.You are right in the city of Montrose, so everything is close by. If you need to resupply, this is the place to do it.The sites are gravel with grassy areas between. Side to side they were plenty wide. But it still felt like everyone was packed in. There are a number of long term residents, but none of the sites appeared junky.We didn't try the WiFi, but instead relied on our Verizon Jetpack which had an excellent signal. The cable TV worked OK. But we preferred to use our antenna to get an HD TV signal instead. There were plenty of OTA channels.The pool was closed because it was late in the season, but the hot tub was still open. This was an above ground hot tub that could hold four comfortably. Best part was that you had access to the controls and could set the temperature to whatever you wanted!!This KOA makes an excellent base to explore The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Make sure you do the drive at the top AND the drive down to the bottom.We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if in the area.

    Normally I am not a big fan of KOA, but this one is clean and convenient for sightseeing in the Montrose area. Restrooms, showers and laundry facilities are immaculate. The wifi service is marginal, even with a booster. This is our second stay in four years.
