Glenwood Canyon Resort is in a beautiful location. It sits in Glenwood Canyon along the Colorado River and directly off Interstate 70.

Our stay was great for five nights out of seven. But, This place is a huge attraction for wedding receptions and other large parties. Because of this, the park owners appear to have no interest in enforcing the quite rule after 10 P.M.  Our first night was Saturday night. There are two park model cabins across from our site and it was occupied by the wedding party guest. They partied all night long. They had music blasting until after five AM. A few of the party animals felt the need to be loud and yell all night long. Our last night was Friday. Again another wedding party had taken over the tent camping area along the river. They were not as inconsiderate as the first group. They had a DJ playing music but it ended shortly after eleven PM.

My complaint is that you are not given an after hours number. So, if the noise bothers you you’re out of luck. If your power goes out, or your water breaks, too bad. You have no one to contact after the office people are gone for the day. And as for complaining, forget it. I mentioned the horrific noise after our first night and the girl in the office said: “I’m sorry about that but we had a wedding party last night.”

But the location is amazing. The Colorado River is on the bottom side of the campground and you can camp along the river if you like. A concrete trail runs along the front of the resort and goes for many miles along the Colorado River making this a great place for bikes, joggers or dog walkers to get some exercise. They also have a bar in the campground if you want to enjoy a drink in the evening.

Not a big deal for some, but I want to mention that the sites are a little tight to back into. You have ample room around your site, but they have large boulders lining each RV spot and these are in the way. A large 45″ Prevost took about thirty minutes to get into his spot because the boulders were so large he could not get his rear end of the rig to over the top of the boulder. So he had to wiggle the rig into place by going in reverse and forward a couple dozen times. Our fifth wheel sits higher so we were able to go over the boulders in our way.

In conclusion, we will not stay here again regardless of the beauty. If the manager would consider enforcing the quiet hours this would be worth the $69 per night rate. As it is now I would not pay $10 per night since you can’t get any sleep during the night.

We like to support small business along the way so we always look for that special place the locals like to eat. We also look for full hook up camping spots to basecamp for a week or two while we visit the local communities so we can report back to you what we find. We will give you our honest opinion of each place we stay, eat and work out. Our Beagle Boxer mix, Echo, will also give you reviews on dog friendly places and local dog parks that she visits.
