    Highline state park or James M cobb fruita section

    my boyfriend and i are coming to fruita for 5 nights oct. 4th the 9th which campground is better for tent camping, we just want somewhere nice with showers, which has more privacy and is best getting to the trails........

    Highline - probably more privacy and less feeling like you are camping in the middle of town.

    James M Robb - More of a central location to the three main trail networks (Lunch Loops, 18rd, Kokopelli). Can walk or bike to restaurants, etc....

    I would probably camp at Highline if it was me.

    If you look at this map, what you won't see is a couple gas stations, a mcdonalds, a wendy's, etc.... that would also be ON the map.

    Highline. Further to Lunch Loops, but closer to Rabbit Valley. It's about a wash (compared to Cobb) when going to Koko or 18-Road.

    Cement benches, pebble filled tent pads, bathrooms, views of the local truck stop (smells too) - go to Highline and enjoy the peace and quiet.

    Don't forget the endless generators running on the road maggots. Of course they kind of blend in with the I-70 noise...

    Never camped at HL. Always been a 18 road or RV guy. I just bring the old Sun Shower.

    Be warned: 18-Road SUCKS when it's raining. Highline is at least tolerable when it's raining...
