This is one of the few commercial RV and tent camping sites, about 5 minutes SW of Carbondale and 45 minutes to either Glenwood Springs or Aspen. I cannot comment on the cabins, but the campsite was great if you are lucky to get a site next to the river, where its peaceful hum lulls you to sleep and blocks out neighbor noises. Actually, I would have given this 5 stars if the sites were larger and spaced out as our neighbors campfire was less than 10 yards from ours (nothing like backwoods forest camping options nearby). Some sites are better than others if you have your pick, but make sure you get a reservation on a busy weekend (we were there July 4th - it was full). Despite the close quarters, the site is well-maintained with hot shower, toliets, sinks, and drinking water, and I would recommend it for all kinds of travelers especially those with small kids (we brought a 9 month old) and dogs (everywhere!).
