Camping in Glenwood Springs area

Would like recommendations for a campground on the river in the Glenwood Springs to Aspen area. Camping in a 40' fifth wheel.

Tried the Crystal River Resort but is full.

Rock Gardens is the only campground on the river I am aware of in the Glenwood Area. The Forest Service has a campground in Marble and there are several in the Aspen area if you want to go further out.

Maybe the Redstone Campground? 40' is their max, so it should work if they have availability.


Bogan Flats campground is near Carbondale. They allow up to 40 footers, but have no hookups as far as I can tell. I'm sure I've been by this one but just can't remember what it looks like! mtnlife, do you know? Is it in a pretty spot?


We haven't been by this one but I came across the info when looking for something else--Elk Creek Campground is a commercial campground near New Castle, on Elk Creek. Did you particularly want to be on the Crystal River?


Glenwood Canyon Resort is an option, too. Located in Glenwood Canyon, they have cabins, tent sites, and RV sites. Interstate 70 is close by, but from what I've read, you don't hear the traffic much because of the river. However, you do hear the trains go by.
