We and 2 other couples stayed 2wks there 2 years ago. As said it's a little pricey but still a very nice park. The town's 4th of July celebration is pretty nice for such a small place. The park is all gravel with well defined semi spacious sites. Elec power is good but is metered. Our bill was about $35 and that's with going thru a record heat wave for the area for near a week, 90degrees. But it would still be in the high 30s early in the AM. My GPS showed altitude at 9004'. It's an easy trip from the South as in Santa Fe or East. Any thing from the North or West has mountain passes to cross.
The scenery is spectacular with mountains all around and the Rio Grande running right next to the park. Be careful with your awning especially in the afternoon. When the rain showers build over the mountains there can be micro bursts of wind 50/60mph for just a couple of minutes then back to near calm. The town has sparse shopping for the gals. Our 3 shopped it out in about 4hrs. then go back about every 3 days an rotate the store's stock. A decent grocery in town for necessities, a liquor store and a few cafes. 4 wheeling is the big thing there on the back country roads and trails. The trip over the mountains to Lake City is really nice and then on to Gunnison, nice day trip.
We all decided that if we do it again, we might stay there a couple of days then make a base camp in Pagosa Springs or Durango, just a lot more to do, especially for the girls.
Just an aside, our AT&T cell phone was the only one in our group that would work in Creede. One of the others was AllTel and can't remember what the other was.
