Campground Review: Tall Texan RV Park, Gunnison, CO

Tall Texan RV Park sits in a lovely shaded glen just a block from the Gunnison River and only a couple of miles North of downtown Gunnison, CO.

There are 90 RV sites situated amongst tall, old cottonwood trees. The trees provided welcome shade during our stay but made it a little bit difficult to get full satellite service. During our stay the trees were "snowing" cotton heavily each day as well as dropping a little bit of sap! Roads and sites are dirt/gravel with some grass, a concrete patio and a picnic table. We had site #64, a nice pull through on the end of a group of sites.

Amenities include laundry, restrooms/showers, wifi, playground, recycling. We got good 4G Verizon signal using our own internet service. There are also a few large tent sites and some cabins for rent.

There is a pretty irrigation ditch running through the park, as well as a pond. Some of the RV sites are situated near the pond, very pretty. The park sits a couple of blocks off of busy Hwy 135, but does get a little road noise from it during the day. It is very quiet at night.

This was a very nice park, the only drawback being the sap falling from the cottonwood trees. Luckily it washes off with a little elbow grease. It is probably only a problem at this time of year. If in the area, we'd likely stay here again.

Site #464.

  1. Lovely park!! Last night Deas cooked hamburgers on the grill, and then later when we were walking the dogs I asked him "Do you need to do anything about those hot coals?" And then, at the same time, we both yelled out in our best 80s hairband voices, "HOT KOHLS!!!" Miss you guys!
