General rules & policies Cabins at Riverbend RV Park and Cabins in Montrose CO. These rules are in place so that everyone will have a safe stay.
RV Site and Tent Site Check-in: Noon – 7:00 PM (June – September); Noon – 5:00 PM (October – May)
Cabins Check-in: 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM (June – September); Noon – 5:00 PM (October – May)
Please note that we cannot accommodate late arrivals after 7:00 pm (June – September); or after 5:00 PM (October – May). If you cannot arrive to the Park by our check in times, please consider changing your travel dates. Of course, we are aware that uncontrollable events can delay your arrival. We ask that you stay in contact with us if you are delayed.
Check out: 11:00 am
Early Check-In or Late Check Out
If you would like an early check-in or a late checkout, please call ahead and make a request. However, your request is subject to availability. Our policy cannot accommodate arrivals prior to 11 am, therefore you should plan your travels accordingly.
Early access to the Park (before check-in time) does not guarantee that your cabin or site will be ready or available at the time of arrival. Similarly, extended access (after check out time) does not guarantee that you will be able to stay in your cabin or site until departing from the park. Early access/extended access only guarantees you access to the campground and campground amenities, which may require that you park in our overflow parking. In addition, we do our best to honor preferences; however, requested sites are not guaranteed.
Your RV must be tagged and registered while in the Park. In addition, our policy states that it can not be older than 10 years old, unless it has been fully restored and considered “vintage.” Car and tent camping is not allowed in our RV sites without prior management approval.
All of our park’s tent sites are available first-come, first-served. One pet policy allows for one per tent site. And, because our tent areas are community parks, we enforce a no-nuance pet policy. Therefore, you will be asked to leave immediately if your pet causes a nuance to other campers. Pit Bulls or Rottweilers, or mixes thereof, are not allowed in our Park.

If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast. Motorcycles, ATV’s and all vehicles should be driven to and from campsites only. Please remember that you share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians. In summary, this rule and policy is for everyone’s safety and to also keep the park a pleasant environment for all of our guests

Firewood can carry invasive insects and diseases that can kill native trees.

Park Pet Rules & Policies
We are animal lovers, very fond of pets and appreciate the fact that people recognize their pets to be an integral part of their family. We ask that you obey and respect the following Park Pet Rules & Policies out of respect to all fellow campers and pets.
- To prevent injury to your pets, please keep them on a leash (no greater than 6 feet) at all times.
- For health and safety reasons, pets are not allowed in campground buildings.
- Please do not leave your pet unattended outside your camper.
- Any pets showing aggressive behavior will be asked to leave and you will not be given a refund.
- You are held responsible to pick up after your pet.
- We ask you to show respect to your neighbors by not allowing your pet to bark and disrupt their peace and privacy. If a barking problem persists Riverbend Management may request the dog to be removed from the property.
- All guests are responsible and liable for any personal injury or damage caused by their pet with regards to other guests.
- All domestic household pets are required to be inoculated and shall wear identification tags.
Service Animal Policy
Our park welcomes visitors with service animals. The ADA and Colorado law define a service animal as a dog that is individually trained to perform tasks or do work for the benefit of a person with a physical or mental disability. (In some circumstances, a miniature horse who is individually trained also qualifies as a service animal.) The tasks or work the animal does must be directly related to the person’s disability. Service animals are “dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities,” according to the Revised Americans with Disabilities Act Service Animal Requirements. Our Pet Policy applies to service animals with the following exemptions:
- Service animals in a working capacity are allowed in all public areas of the park when accompanied by a visitor with a disability; and,
- Service animals should be harnessed, leashed or tethered unless such devices interfere with the service animal’s work, or if the visitor’s disability prevents the use of these devices. In that case, the visitor must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls.
We understand that service animals may need recreational breaks; therefore, if a service animal is not working (e.g., running around, playing fetch, etc.), it is only permitted at designated pet locations. Neither the ADA nor Colorado’s service animal law includes pets or what are often referred to as “emotional support animals”: animals that provide a sense of safety, companionship, and comfort to those with psychiatric or emotional disabilities or conditions. Although these animals often have therapeutic benefits, they are not individually trained to perform specific tasks for their handlers. Under the ADA and Colorado law, owners of public accommodations are not required to allow emotional support animals, only service animals.
Riverbend RV Park owners or staff will issue one verbal warning if you or your guests are in violation of our pet rules & policies. A second violation of our rules & policies will result in immediate eviction from the park with no refund or camp credit.
