The camping area was a bit small. There were four campsites close to each other. Would like a bit more space since we were not with a group. This place would be great for a group based on proximity.

This is a super beautiful camping area with farm animals, an idyllic lake, and great hiking spots. Just as a heads up, this is not a private camping spot. There are cabins, an RV area, and 4 camping spots which are in a small clearing. Fires are also allowed only in a communal fire pit. These are not complaints just something to be aware of if you’re looking for a secluded camping spot or you don’t want to interact with other campers. Everyone was so friendly and my kids loved playing with other children on the playground and basketball hoops, which was awesome because they were never bored. Definitely recommend and would camp there again someday when I get an RV.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. It was remote enough, but still close enough to Meeker for emergency supplies. The campgrounds were nice and mostly well kept. The tent area could have used a mowing. Otherwise it was a great experience. We would definitely stay again and plan to next year.

Not sure if we or our dogs had a better time tent camping at Ute Lodge. Mona and Carl could not have been more accommodating! The area is beautiful and my grandson was so excited to see his first bald eagle there. We enjoyed a pot luck dinner and met many wonderful people. It was the best camping experience I have ever had! Thank you so much!

We had a great time! It’s a perfect place to come with a family and a dog. The kids had tons of games and other kids to play with and so did the dog. The tent spot is far enough away from the RVs - so it’s quiet at night. The bathroom were nice and clean and it was wonderful having hot water. We caught 3 fish and I was able to go paddle boarding in the lake on-site. It was hot - you definitely need some sort of shade canopy to help keep you comfortable. We had an excellent time!

I felt like I had come home. Such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We were supposed to camp but arrived in the rain. They quickly accommodated the change to a cabin and saved us from despair. The property is gorgeous and the hiking was stunning. One of my favorite spots.

This was a site unseen reservation for a weekend camping family experience. While the location for tent camping was far from a traditional “backwoods by a river” it proved to be enjoyed by the 7 adults.and a 4 year old. The horses, pigs and chickens were an added delight. The pond with canoe was enjoyed by all. The camp host were very friendly and informative. The bath house was clean and ‘‘twas nice to have the hot water and flush toilets! We will definitely tly reflect on fond memories.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ute Lodge! I wanted to get away from the city and test out some new gear I picked up in preparation for upcoming summer dispersed camping trips. Tent camping on their grounds was perfect! I, unfortunately, didn't get to meet Mona in person but Carl (her husband) and everyone on the host crew were incredibly hospitable. The scenery and air quality were AMAZING ... so peaceful. Also, having amenities like the bathhouse, electricity hookup, wifi and water felt pretty luxurious. One thing to note is that the tent sites are really close to other campers but I figured it meant safety in numbers for me as I was traveling solo. I had some good convos with my fellow travelers, which was nice. All in all, I would highly recommend camping here and hope to return sometime in the near future.

The horses arrived just as I was leaving. So beautiful!Another photo of the lakeMy view each morning. The RVs were lined up across the dirt road from the tent sites.The bubbling brook near the campground.
