Fodor's Review

Anglers love this spot on the Colorado River, 10 mi from the Grand Lake entrance. In the evening, you can sit in on ranger-led campfire programs. All sites accommodate RVs, tents, trailers, or campers, and are limited to eight people. Firewood is sold here. It's first-come, first-served (reservations are not accepted).
