“Low price , low quality living”
Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

We always say, "you get what you pay for". Whew, did we ever :( we stayed in the Dry Bean. A 3 bedroom , 2 bath cabin. We did have plenty of room for the 5 of us.
I'll start with the positives as they are less than the negatives. Wifi was a plus as there was sketchy cell signal. Cute cabins from the outside. Fun snow play areas for the kids. Staff were friendly. Kids enjoyed the resident dogs to play with. Our cabin temperature was fairly good...warm enough yet one side of the cabin was clearly warmer than the other. Close proximity to Wolf Creek Ski, only a 15 minute drive in dry conditions. There was a laundry facility on location, however we did not use it.
Negatives included uncomfortable beds ... Ugh after a long day of skiing. Our bed had a huge dent in the middle and I fell into my husband all night long. Terrible plumbing, from the gross showers to the spraying bathroom sinks... What a disappointment. Just wanted a nice shower after skiing , not in our cabin. And all the water areas were dirty, rusting and poorly maintained. We cooked most of the nights and probably left the kitchen cleaner than when we arrived. Dishes and utensils had dried food stuck to them. Coffee pot needed a good scrubbing...
We looked forward to some tv at night. Well, we brought a DVD ... The player wouldn't work. We borrowed VHS tapes, the VCR didn't work. ALL remotes were broke. So to change channels someone had to sit at the cable box and press the button through all the hundreds of channels.
The power outlets in the walls were all loose and we couldn't plug many things in without the plug literally falling out of the wall. Half of the lightbulbs were blown, with lamps being temperamental.
College kids would love this place, but not for a family...

Me and my brother stayed several nights on our way through to California and have missed it ever since! Clean rooms, friendly hosts, beautiful scenery and a great atmosphere who could ask for more. They even have a horse trail and sleigh ride, the town and ski area are also close by, it's the complete Colorado package.

If you are looking to experience Colorado in a true mountain sense...then this is the place! Beautiful, peaceful scenery to admire and enjoy...a meandering river to explore...a lake just around the bend to fish or hike around...a place to just relax and experience a calm that only the mountains can give! Liz and Goat tend to this special place and their guests with kindness and smiles!

We tripped over this campground on our way from Cortez, CO to Cody, WY a couple of years ago. We were only going to stay a couple of nights, but that turned into a week, then two weeks, then a month and finally to two months! We only left because of previous commitments back home. Before we left we made reservations for the next year!! (We never did make it to Cody!)This will be our third year there and we can hardly wait to get there! People are sooo friendly and made us feel right at home like we belonged there right from the start! It's quiet and feels like a small town. It truly feels like coming home! We have recommended this campground to everyone we know. Although we RV fulltime, this is now our summer home! Come join us!!! We have pot lucks every week and lots of jeep trips into the mountains (4wheelers are welcome to join us!). There's lots of good fishing and wildlife sightings (sometimes right there in the campground). We even had a deer join us for our outdoor church service one Sunday! Goat and Liz, the managers, are very friendly and very helpful. Hope to see y'all there!

I travel with a large extended family, and we explored South Fork for the first time. We originally booked a vacation rental, that try as we may, we could never reach the person we booked it from. Someone in town recommended Goodnight's, we called, and they were more than happy to accomidate us. We stayed in a cabin, until it was reserved for someone else, and they offered another lodging, off site, but we were headed home the next day anyway, so we just left early, and found lodging on the way home.
The owners are a little different, but do their utmost to make your stay enjoyable. Living in a plains state, loin clothes are noth common, except at Pow Wows.
