What People Are Saying About Mountain Views at Rivers Edge

“Great views, friendly staff, good price and clean facilities. The only reason this isn’t a 5 star is because I wish there were a few more trees around for shade, but that’s just the type of location Crede is located, not a fault of the facility.” – Daniel, Google Review

“Great views. This is one of the nicest RV parks that we have stayed in. Friendly people, clean, great facilities, large sites and great mountain views. We stayed in one of the normal sites versus the leased sites.” – Jackie, TripAdvisor Review

What People Are Saying About High Country RV Park

“I came to the Delores Canyon for the fantastic scenery but there were no RV parks! What a treat it was to find Lloyd and the crew at HCRV. It is the ONLY park in nearly 100 miles! They made me feel right at home and Naturita is a great little hub to explore the area from. I will be returning many more times.” – Bobcat, TripAdvisor Review

“High Country RV was excellent to our weary group of bikers after a long day of mountain roads. Lloyd had no problem with us taking a single site up with our 5 bikes. While the weather for us was nice enough to only set up cots or sleep on the ground it may not be during your stay. The sites are very dusty and if you go left from the main entrance there is deep gravel so be aware. Wi-Fi, laundry, electric and showers made this a great place to recharge and get a good night’s sleep.” – Josiah, Google Review
