Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

D Loop, the site was at the end of the loop where it comes back in to the main road, so no one in front to block the views. Plenty of space between this site and the one immediately behind. A bit tricky backing in, as there are trees on both sides close to the edge of the site, and a tree at the back end, inhibiting rear overhang. Consequently, the site was a bit tight, but was manageable. Lots of shade, in late May there were still some evidence of the snow storms that had come through prior weekends. This was Memorial Day weekend, still spots of snow, but they were gone by the Monday after. Cool weather at 9200 feet, but pleasant. Great hiking trails in GGCSP, already have reservations to return and try a different loop. We camped at Golden Gate Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chambers Lake Campground USFS, Bellvue, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Site 021 was an excellent site, nice and level, easy to get into and a great view of the lake, above the boat ramp area, up on the hill. At the intersection of the loop, so some traffic, but not bothersome at all. Warm days, cool nights, great place for a fire in the evening, fire ring not close to the trailer, plenty of space. We camped at Chambers Lake Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Park Campground-Roosevelt Nat'l. Forest, Bellvue, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

A return to Mountain Park (see prior review) and no surprises. Bear Loop 023, electric site. Level back in site, easy to get in. Plenty of space between sites, fire pit far enough from the trailer. Heavily treed area, provides good shade, awning would only be needed for rain protection. We camped at Mountain Park Campground-Roosevelt Nat'l. Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Jackson Lake State Park, Orchard, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Nice site, a bit of an incline to get in, but level once up. North View Loop is on a hill overlooking the lake. There are picnic shelters with wind blocks, and for good reason. It was very windy the entire weekend, from various directions. Too windy for a fire in the evening. Plenty of room for a 26ft trailer and dually tow vehicle. Nicely spaced, not a feeling of being right on top of your neighbors. This particular site has an unobstructed view of the lake, as there's no sites in front to block the view. We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

First time back to Golden Gate Canyon in over 30 years, and it did not disappoint. Site was in loop C (#031) and was a good site, though it could have been more level. Had to lower the front end about as low as it would go, and boards under the curb side of the trailer. That said, it as a wonderful weekend. Camping in the pines, drove around the park exploring and went down to the main visitors center. Well staffed, friendly and knowledgable. Good access to areas outside of the park, such as Black Hawk and Central City. Didn't use any of the facilities, so can't comment about their status. But the campsite was clean. And unlike another poster, I have no problem whatsoever with the Rangers patrolling the area. Nice to know that they are watchful, and it seemed as though their primary interest was to make sure that campfires were always attended to. We camped at Golden Gate Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Morefield Campground (NPS), Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

FHU back in site on the last week of operations there. Site was secluded with bushes separating sites on both sides and trees/meadow at the back of the site. Water/electric/sewer all worked well. The restroom had already been winterized for the season, but had no reason to use it. Site was level with room, though the fire ring and picnic table were a bit close to the trailer. Still, enough distance to have a good fire going. Staff was friendly, the general store was fairly well stocked; you could tell it was toward the end of the season. Thought prices might be discounted, not the case. Still, a good value and one of the best National Park experiences we've had in many years of camping in NPs. We camped at Morefield Campground (NPS) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you have plenty of fuel! Diesel prices inside the park were higher than average, and the one station outside was no better. Fuel up in Cortez or Mancos prior to entering the park. You'll be doing a lot of driving inside the park; it's 4 miles to Morefield, and another 11 miles to Farview Lodge, 15 miles to the most popular cliff dwelling sites.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

End of the row site on "G" street, the site was level and a small grove of trees separating the pull thru site from the main street. Next site over was close but not overly so. Water/Electric/Sewer all worked well, though they have an unusual recommendation to not leave your sewer hose out, only connect it up when you have to dump -- due to the crows (very large) that like to peck at and punch holes in the sewer hoses. Otherwise, the site was fine. Convenient to walking to the entry where one can get the shuttle to get around in the 3 parts of the South Rim area of Grand Canyon National Park. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

United Campground of Durango, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park, right off the highway. Sign was a bit hard to see, if you're not looking for it, you could miss the turn. The turn itself was a sharp U turn to get off the highway to the frontage road. Staff was friendly and helpful. Site was FHU, good level site near the end of the row. Fairly easy to get into. W/E/S all worked well. Great view of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad that goes through the site. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

North Rim Campground (NPS Campground), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 2 nights at the North Rim in their final week of operation. Site #11, an outside side near the premium sites on the canyon edge. All sites in the park are pull thru. Huge level site, plenty of room between the trailer and the picnic table/fire ring. Lots of pine needles for fire kindling. Excellent Verizon 4G wireless service (reportedly there's a Verizon tower in the area). No hookups, but that's what we wanted. Nice shade with the many trees, comfortable during the day, crisp/cool at night. Campsites were all clean as were the restrooms. General store well stocked, even for late in the season. Only real down side was that the diesel fuel price was jacked up from $2.99 to $3.26 overnight for our departure date. Ended up fueling up at the Kaibab General Store for $2.89 -- it's 7 miles outside the park. We camped at North Rim Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're making reservations, look for the "premium" sites near the canyon edge. Not too close, but close enough for a view. Also look for an outside of the loop site if possible.

Guernsey State Park, Guernsey, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Originally had a no hookup site in Sandy Cove, called and changed the reservation to a W/E site at Sandy Beach. Process was very easy, simply asked if there had been cancellations, and the reservation agent was able to confirm there were, and moved me. Took maybe 5 minutes total. The campground itself was fine, a mixture of sites with trees along the lakeshore, and more open sites. I had one of the open sites. It was level and easy to access, though with no trees around, it did get a bit warm. Having electric was welcome, in that I could use the A/C. Dump station with water available at the entrance to the park. There's a lot to see in this State Park. It's very large and there are 13 CGs all around the lake. Some will accommodate only a few campers, others are larger. Lots of beautiful views of the lake, take the time to explore around it. Museum is nice, gives some good history of the area. Not far from the town of Guernsey, and the Oregon Trail Ruts. Also convenient to Fort Laramie NHP, which was fascinating and informative. Only problem is the CG we were in was very close to the railroad and trains that run through the area. Constantly. Coal trains running 24/7 on a regular basis. Major rail yard just outside of Guernsey on the east side, trains heading down to the power plant in Wheatland to deliver coal. One can hear the rumble of the trains all day and night. Fortunately there were no railroad crossings, so they were not blowing horns. If one can adjust to this rumble, it's a nice place to stay. Not the best state park I've visited but certainly nice enough for a weekend. And of you're in to water sports, the lake can certainly accommodate that, with more than a few boat launch areas. Countywide fire ban in place, so no campfires allowed. Rangers patrolled the area regularly and took care of those folks who disregarded the fire ban notice IN BIG LETTERS! We camped at Guernsey State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Even though this park is in Eastern Wyoming, where one would think it would be relatively flat, it isn't. There's lots of rolling hills enroute to the park, and the park itself has several somewhat steep roads to deal with and it's curvy and narrow. Certainly doable, just something to be aware of.

Mountain Park Campground-Roosevelt Nat'l. Forest, Bellvue, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

As other reviews have pointed out, this is an outstanding campground, offering electric and dry sites. There are 4 loops -- Bear and McConnell loops have electric hookups. All the sites appeared to be level, the site we had certainly was. Paved interior roads, gravel pull thru and back in sites. Well spaced between sites. Hosts are excellent at keeping the CG well maintained and clean. Firewood available from the hosts. Non-threaded water faucets available throughout the CG, efficient fire grates for the sites. Challenging hike from the CG, the Kreutzer Trail, with interpretive information, and the McConnell trail that reaches Mt. McConnell -- elevation gain from 6600 feet to just over 8000 feet in a 4 mile loop. We camped at Mountain Park Campground-Roosevelt Nat'l. Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Camp Dick (USFS), Ward, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Can't believe this campground hasn't been reviewed more frequently. It's an excellent campground, located between Ward (8 miles away) and Allenspark (8 miles away) at Peaceful Valley. There's actually 2 campgrounds here, Camp Dick (with 40 sites) and Peaceful Valley (with 17 sites). Stayed at Camp Dick over the Memorial Day weekend 2016; rate is without senior pass discount (half price), and did require a 3 night minimum since it was a holiday.

Sites are well spaced, some in the open, some in the trees. CG is in a valley with a stream running through it, quite a few sites are streamside; there's also a cul-de-sac with some sites, in the trees and a bit more private. Each site has a fire ring, table, separate grill and tent pad. All are well maintained and cleaned regularly. CG road is paved; sites are gravel and level.

Family friendly CG, can accommodate a variety of campers/RVs. No hookups at all, and common water available, but faucets are not threaded. Firewood available on site from host. Host very friendly and efficient. We camped at Camp Dick (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

Falcon Meadow Campground, Falcon, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Two night stay there. Needed to be on the east side of Colorado Springs. Yes, the park is old. It's been around since 1959, but it's better than many others that have been around less time. It is laid out rather strangely, but is fairly easy to get around. Were originally given a back in spot that had the utilities on the opposite side from where they should be. We asked about another spot, a pull-thru, didn't have sewer, but did have water/electric. Utilities worked fine and were in the right place. Site was a fairly new one on the north end of the park near the dog walk field. LOTS of rabbits in the field and adjacent camp sites, but they weren't a bother -- rather fun to watch them. HUGE, ferocious rain storm the 2nd night, caused some flooding within the campgrounds and some tree damage, trees uprooted and limbs down, but no damage to campers that was visible. One poor soul in a tent probably got soaked! Staff there very friendly. It's a good choice if you need to be on the east side of the Springs, and it's easy to get to locations around town. We camped at Falcon Meadow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Memorial Day weekend at Chief Hosa, one of the coldest/rainiest holidays in recent memory. The site we had was OK, it was fairly level, but it was muddy, particularly where the tow vehicle was parked. Didn't spend much time outside due to the weather. The campground can get crowded and the sites are close together, but no more so than some of those parking lot RV parks where there's barely room to breathe. The staff was friendly and very helpful, guide to help us get the rig in place. Water/Electric connections, no sewer. Only drawback -- they charge an additional $23 to use the dump station there, which is way too steep a price. I gave the park a 7 rating, since it's a viable park to stay in, close to I-70 and amenities, easy commute to Denver or Evergreen/Conifer area. Some of the sites aren't overly level, and it does take some experience in getting in and around the campground, as there are a lot of trees, and some tight turns. It was clean, and the restrooms were very clean. Some folks gripe about the fee to shower, but it's not really unreasonable. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Glacier Basin Campground (NPS Campground), Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Rate noted above is with the Senior Pass discount. This is the "off the beaten path" campground in RMNP, somewhat less popular than Moraine Park, but just as nice. There's great views, a mixture of campsites/types; pull-throughs, back-ins, and tent sites. Some in the trees, some out in the open. We had a site that was a pull-through in D loop (D142), nestled in the trees but with an open view to the south. Will definitely keep this site in mind for future trips there. The restrooms (and there were numerous restroom buildings) were sparkling clean with flush toilets and sinks; seems a shame they don't include showers, but that doesn't detract from them, would just be a welcome addition. About the only thing that somewhat soured our visit was the very cranky "lady" that was selling firewood/ice, who made a very disparaging remark about us not having anything less than a $20 for the firewood; that was all the cash we had. She was really nasty about it, and when we go again, we will make sure to have something smaller so she won't be as cranky! We camped at Glacier Basin Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
