James M. Robb - Colorado River State Park, Fruita Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is part of the riverside trails that span from Fruita to Palisades. Great views of the river. The trail is paved, which makes great for bicycling, running or taking a casual walk in scenic environment. There are benches along the trail. The lakes are great for fishing and non-motorized boating. Shelters and picnic areas are available.

  • Felt like we were camping at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Beautiful canyon walls on both sides with the Colorado River at your door. State Park so fees were very reasonable. We had E/W/S. Make sure to ask for sewer if you want it,as all the sites do not have it. Easy on/off highway but you can hear the trucks during peak times.

  • Great for camping, all hook ups or just electric. They have awesome showers snack machine and laundry. Close to town for supplies. $35 a night

  • This is a great area to walk your pooch. There's a path around a fishing pond that connects with a local paved path alongside the Colorado River. There are public restrooms and a park as well.

  • Beautiful and well maintained campground. The campground has nice grassy areas and gravel driveways so we never get a tent full of sand. We love visiting yearly for the Palisade Peach Festival in mid August.
