We needed full hookups for multiple weeks. The RV places around Denver really suck, so we had to go with Elk Meadow. Pros- The crew were very friendly and helped a lot. It is located right next to Rocky Mountain National Park. Trash pickup from your site daily. There is a pool, but nothing special. On Saturday nights they did have live music with beer and wine. Cons- Elk Meadows is way over priced. The weekly rate is $455 with GS, but there is a 10.7% 'Camping Tax'. $1,511.06 for 3 weeks. They charge $2.50 per page if you want something printed. They charge $4.99 for a 10 lb bag of ice. I'd call that price gouging. The park is dirt and gravel with small patches of native grass between the sites. When it rains (as it does almost daily in the mountains) there is a lot of dirt washed into the site. No mail delivery. The park does not accept mail of any kind for the guests and the post office in Estes Park does not accept general delivery. This is the only RV park we've been to that doesn't accept mail for the guests. Overall, you are stuck with the limited selection of places in the area. If you must use Elk Meadow, be prepared to pay. We camped at Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Avoid the whole area during the summer tourist season if at all possible. Estes Park is a very popular town. Rock Inn has a great happy hour.

I agree with many of the previous reviews. Older park. Facilities are very dated, but clean. Good sized spaces that are grass. Roads are gravel. The power pedestals are very dated. They are wired correctly, but have seen better days. We stayed on the side with only water and electric as we were only there 2 days. Had that whole section mostly to ourselves. We drove 30 miles to Andersonville. That's the site of the National POW Museum and Civil War Confederate POW camp. It's also a national cemetery with many Civil War graves and monuments. The road noise was pretty bad especially when in conjunction with 2-3 trains per night. We will not stay at this campground again. We camped at Southern Trails Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
If you need work on your truck, call Borums NAPA. Gas station, auto service, and auto parts store. I had them do an oil change and rotate/balance tires. Unique auto parts store as it also had typical hardware store items as well as plumbing supplies. You can also get ammo there.

This is an older RV Campground, but in good shape and clean. The staff was great at check-in. I needed a washer for my water supply hose and they just gave me one. Some airport noise. Close to the Big Texan. There's a limo service that will pick you up, no charge. We camped at Overnite RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
You need to hit the Big Texan. Great steak, even if you don't go for the big 72 oz challenge. Cadillac Ranch is on the other side of Amarillo. Need to check that off also.
