Tips for other Campers:

Although we had a pull-through, the turns were too sharp to maneuver our 45 ft Class A into the site. We went around the 'block' and ended up backing into our sight. The row of campers behind us were packed in with the tow vehicles causing our dilemma. Site not level. Good nights rest, though. Beautiful scenery surrounding Palisades.

This will be a lengthy review. The good: very friendly check-in staff. The not so good: Site 9 rock base not level. Grass, I should say mostly non existent vegetation was poorly maintained. Strong diesel exhaust smell (from a nearby business) during night requiring us to shut windows. Our new airstream and black truck had a days worth of hard water stain on both sides from irrigation system during the night. Vegetation being watered was just a big waste of water resources. If you can imagine a lot of dirt and a few srigs of grass and weeds. Advertised pool (drained), hot tub (drained), dog run (high weed infested), advertised as "oasis", that being a real joke. This property, if given the financial resources and care it may deserve, could be a real oasis, someday. But it isn't now and won't be for awhile to come. Left early in morning before office opened. Called while on road and spoke with and very nice, asked to receive some type of consideration (total refund would be appropriate), anything would have made this issue better. Since that didn't happen, this review was written. Beware! Know what you are getting for the money. We've been in hundreds of private and state campgrounds and this one, by far, was the biggest disappointment. Actually could be the worst experiences we've encountered. We gave this place a chance to make it right, but they failed. Anyone can contact me and I'll give you the same info. I am as nice as I can be about this campground. Lucky my wife didn't review. It would have been brutal. We camped at Palisade Basecamp RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Palisade was a cute town. This campground should be avoided until owners do the right thing by the customers investing in this dump, in its current form.

We are new to the RV life and just spent a week at Palisade Basecamp. It is a great place! It truly serves as a "base camp" for all of the wonderful places to visit in the western wine country! The place is new but the attention to detail is very impressive. The park was easy to find and get into. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of all of the resort. The beauty of their location is awesome. How can you beat being located next to a vineyard! The staff and owners of the Palisade Basecamp are very friendly and helpful. We will be back for sure! We camped at Palisade Basecamp RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is only 2 years old so there is no shade and no sign of trees being planted. The sites were level and ours overlooked the Colorado River. the bathrooms were some of the cleanest and most modern ones I've seen in this area. Everything is new and laid out well. The showers were immaculate as was everything else in the restrooms. The laundry was small, but would work. We camped at Palisade Basecamp RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We toured the Grand Mesa and some of the wineries. We also shopped at the fruit/vegetable stands along the highway. The cherries were excellent! We attended the Bluegrass Festival in the park in the town of Palisades and went to the farmer's market in town. Great trip!

A lovely setting perched above the Colorado River and with magnificent views of bluffs and plateaus. This new campground is almost completed. The sites are level, grass is planted, and when it is completed will be very, very nice. A lot of care and money is going into this endeavor. Price seems a little high, but a private campground costs a lot to create and run. We camped at Palisade Basecamp RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of wineries and orchards in the area. We went to Carlson Winery--they have a couple of cats that are mascots. One of their labels is "Laughing Cat".
