James M. Robb State Park

This angle makes the park look crowded, but it really isn’t and the sites are spacious with lots of trees

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
This is a beautiful park with mostly roomy pull-through sites
and older folks who seem to be passing through and/or
visiting nearby Colorado National Monument.  The rangers
were friendly and helpful, and we were very comfortable with
the site and atmosphere.  There was some distant noise from
I-70, but we only heard it at night and it was not bothersome.
There were also some trains passing through at a distance, not
noisy enough to wake us up.

Road and site access/type?
All paved interior roads and sites with concrete pads.  Although
the sites were long, access into them was a little tricky because
the pads were not very wide.  Not a big issue for most folks, but
it was a bit of a tight fit getting in with our motorhome/car
combination.

Sites spacious and/or level?  Comments?
The pull-through sites along the roadside were not wide in the
paved area, but the overall size was very generous.  Our site
(#2) was plenty long for the coach and car, with room to spare.
Spacing between sites was great, since they were along the
roadside and not in a grouped area.  Our site and most of the
others we saw were very close to level, we did not have to use
our jacks.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The full-hookup 50-amp power was adequate, and water
pressure was strong.  The Verizon signal to our phones and
boosted hotspot was good.  The park did not provide WiFi.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
The picnic table was large and of high-quality, and covered –
excellent!  The fire pit was also good quality and the office
sold nice dry firewood at a reasonable price.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
No complaints here, the bathrooms and showers were
contained within a modern building that was clean and had
nice benches and hooks for the showers, which were pay
units.  The laundry room consisted of 3 washers, 3 dryers
and a nice folding table.  Prices for the machines were
reasonable.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
Pets could be walked on-leash on the interior roads, and
there were grassy areas available but we did not see an
off-leash area.  There was equipment for kids to play on
at the bathhouse near us.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
We saw a gravel trail near the front entrance that
appeared to be sufficient for bikes or walking, but we
didn’t have time to check it out.  Many trails were
available at nearby Colorado National Monument, the
main attraction here and a wonderful place to hike.

Groceries & other services nearby?
A grocery store and most other services were just up the
road in Fruita, and just a 15-minute drive away was
Grand Junction which could likely handle any major
work an RV’er would require.  We took advantage of the
LOCO fuel station just outside the park entrance, which
had easy access to diesel pumps for large RV/car
combinations and also filled our propane tank.

Comments:
We really liked the RV park, the cities of Fuita and Grand
Junction, and especially the beautiful Colorado National
Monument that we could see right out the window.  What
a gem this park was!  The area is at about 4500′ elevation,
making the day and nighttime temperatures very pleasant
this time of the year.  We would gladly stay at this excellent
state park again when in the area.
