Barr Lake Campground, Brighton, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

If I could put minus stars I would. We have stayed at this park off and on for 3 years due to required surgeries at the nearby Hospital. Our first stay the sewer backed up and flooded the entire grounds under and in front of our trailer. Park Maintenance would NOT clean up the mess or even offer. My wife and I were outside in the snow digging trenches to drain the filth away from our unit. It wouldn't have been so bad but I am was 69 yo and just had surgery. This was 2016 We stayed here again from August 2017 until present due to more required surgeries. The park has the same problems with the sewer backing up, thru-out the park now, and the Laundry Room will flood if all wash machines are used at same time. The water keeps shutting off when the temperature gets above 90 degrees! There is dog waste everywhere and the new Manager seems to not care as her dog waste is not picked up either. The electrical system thru-out the park needs to be re-done. The new manager took her dog into the office when it was a puppy and it peed everywhere on the carpet and left to dry. It smells like an outhouse at times. There is always a sign on the office door on weekends now stating that the "park is full." New management seems to really care about the park though, I guess. They paid some five-thousand dollars to put plants down the side of the Entrance Road instead of fixing the sewer, water, electrical system and the other problems. Word thru-out the park has it that the new manager wants everything taken out of the little store in the office because she doesn't want to deal with it. They have NO WiFi unless you are in the office and have the code, which they don't give out. One more surgery and we are out of here, to never return, if we don't get thrown out first! The new manager is forcing out people she doesn't like! She fought with one couple that had been here for 20 years so much that they just up and left. They were in their late 70's and never caused a problem! We camped at Barr Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a nice shopping center .2 miles away. Numerous fast food places in the shopping center. Platte Valley Medical/Hospital 1/2 mile away. Grocery stores and Walmart 1-1/2 miles. Access to I-76 is right next door to park. I-25 approx. 7 miles west of park.
