This little campground is trying to rebuild. It still needs a lot of work but the management is making progress. All utilities worked as they should. I would say it is still run down but it's a campground with a heart!! The staff and full timers I met were very friendly. I stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. I would stay here again when I return. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Oh my goodness, "rundown" is an understatement. I didn't use the restrooms because I was afraid of what might be growing in there. The train noise was deafening. I didn't sleep all night. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I would never come back. The one bright spot was the restaurant. The Pepperpod Restaurant was wonderful!! Good food. - lancecamper2

The campground is located immediately off Interstate , so there is some highway noise and is behind the Pepper Pod restaurant. It is basically "carved out" of the back lot and each campsite is white rock pads on dirt/gravel drives. There is little or no shade or privacy and the sites are close together. It appears to be an old facility that is maintained to the basic minimum. A huge drawback is the railroad the runs within feet of the back property line and coal trains go by every half hour day and night. They blow the horns upon entering the town and all the way through. Don't plan on sleeping through this. It is barely acceptable as an overnight stay because it is run down, minimally maintained and train noisy. This is too bad because there is a desperate need for a nice RV park east of Denver on I-76. - marker82

Only stayed 1 night. This place is very trashy. The site had trash and dog poop all over that we ended up cleaning. The plus side was the shopping center close by with restaurants - fatolman

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! - oldman35x2

I would give this "campground" zero stars if I could! My husband and I were headed to Wyoming, then on to the Canadian Rockies, when we ended up needed to get our transmission looked at. The nearest facility that would even look at our motor home was near Denver, so we needed a place to stay for one night. There are very few campgrounds in the Denver area, and even fewer that had a space last minute. I called Barr Lake while we were en route. The woman who answered the phone said she was about to leave for the day, but would reserve a spot for us, we could do a self check in. Well, after driving and driving, we finally found the place around 6pm or so. I walked to the office, which was closed, but noted that our name was assigned a spot. I should back up and say that we were NOT impressed with the looks of this place before we even pulled in! As another reviewer mentioned, this looks like a permanent trailer park, with lots of junk laying around. We drove thru the place and could hardly believe how bad it was. After 11 years of rv-ing, this is honestly the worst "campground" we have ever seen! The junk was bad enough, but what really turned us off were the people wandering around the place, who looked to be on drugs, and/or were drug dealers. Very creepy place.
We'd been driving all day and were beat, but did NOT want to stay here. We found the site we'd been assigned to, then noticed that the electrical box had a pad lock on it! How on earth were we supposed to hook up? This dump wanted $40 bucks a night, plus an extra $2.00 per night for our little puppy (which is a joke!). We were so creeped out by this place we decided not to stay, it just did not feel safe! Ended up spending the night in a Walmart parking lot. The first time we've ever done that before. Certainly not comfortable or ideal, but it was 1,000 times better than Barr Lake! Oh, and the "camground" was also right next to a busy expressway and railroad track! - fly girl

Access to the park was good as was the signage. Check in was quick and pleasant. This is a reservation only park but we had not make a reservation. The young lady made everything work for us and we did not pay a reservation fee. We did pay a $7.00 entry fee. Parameter roads had a few potholes but none were that bad. Our site, Bald Eagle Point 52 was a level concrete pad with a covered table, fire pit, power, water and sewer all very well placed. The only drawback was the constant noise from the freeway. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. We pair $35.00 including the entrance fee and feel we received good value. We would return if in the area. - Rollin Ollens

I would have given this park a "10" except that it is located next to I-25 so you are never free of the highway sounds, otherwise it's a great place to stay for a night or a week. Campground was amazingly clean as were the facilities. It is located next to the St. Vrain river and wetlands so there it's something of a bird watching mecca. Also there are plenty of nature and hiking trials as well as fishing opportunities. As for the campsites there are 87 total about half are electric only and the other half are full hookup. Each site comes with a level concrete pad, picnic table and fire ring. - longgone

This is a lovely state park RV CG, located near freeway and very convenient to Longmont area. Sites are pull-thru in loops adjacent to the graveled interior road, sites are graveled, very spacious, and surrounded by grass. Sites have picnic tables with a wind shield. Reservations require registration with state park service reservation system, but once done, easy to make reservations. This appears to be a very popular destination for locals on weekends, so reservations required far in advance for weekends, but not so much during the week. Park staff very friendly & helpful. - JerryD

We found a gem, but... It is now closed while the county makes rules for the campground. On the northeast side of Denver, we arrived about 8pm. Looking for a stop-over site for 1 night, we opted to avoid the other tacky run-down campgrounds along I-76. We chose to drive 6 miles for a quiet night. Arriving at the clean park/fairgrounds we looked for a sign to find the camp sites. We did find the camping locations using the internet. Parking on concrete and blacktop, all sites were very close together parking-lot-style and were marked "reserved" or do NOT park here. Although their website http://www.co.adams.co.us/index.aspx?NID=396 lists 4 separate camping sites, there is a 5th new camping area with an additional 4 sites with 50 amp and 30 amp hook-ups (no water). The nice sites are across the street - East - from sites 1-8. These new sites back up to the green park surrounding the Mann/Nyholt Lake. The area is gravel and almost level. A picnic shelter is at one end of the new sites. No water at these new sites. Verizon wifi was strong. Although no one from the county administration building was around to help us find a site, a local lady was very helpful. There were no activities the night that we stayed, and it was very peaceful. No late registration box available, so we paid in the morning before leaving. No Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We would return, but call first to be sure it is again open. - AluminumCloud

This is basically a place to overnight, it is not a destination. Being a fairgrounds, the sites are meant to oblige 4H and rodeo campers who need to be near their livestock, but can be used by anyone where there are no events scheduled. There is an excellent park only a few hundred yards to the east, and good fishing in the lakes there. There is no shade and all RV's must use the dump station which is in the wrong location on the map given to you at check-in. Also, the woman who handles the bookings can be very cranky. A good place to park for us since we were visiting family nearby, and very inexpensive. - je23dr13

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We had 30 amp service and water. The first two nights were very quiet. Only one other RV. On night three, ten rigs arrived between 10 p.m. and midnight. They were part of the work crew setting up for an event at the fairgrounds. The place got very busy. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so plan your arrival accordingly or call ahead. Staff was super to work with. - Traveller101

This may be a very nice park in the future, but it is in the developmental stage! We had called 45 days previously for reservations. As we were getting close, we called around 11:45 AM to see if anyone would be in the "office" during the lunch hour. No answer; left message and telephone number. Arrived around 1 pm and had reservations for two nights (made on June 24); no one there (only "office" was an RV with flat tires) so we called campground number again and left another message. Additionally, there were four other names and numbers on a big board in front of RV so we called all of them and left messages. One gentleman called me back and said they were out of town and a lady was on duty. Left another message for her and explained what the gentleman said to me.
We saw an empty spot (only one) so assumed it was ours and set up. (It was the only empty spot) No one came back that night and no one called. No one called on Monday. Around 6:25 pm a woman showed up at our RV site, presumably the lady I called. Apparently, they had no record of our calling and making a reservation, and she said she did not get any voice mail messages either. Thankfully, no one needed our spot Monday evening so we paid $35/night (very pricey for this new park without laundry facilities or office). FYI, all but one site are for long-term campers. That one site was full for a week (we had already talked with them to see what they knew about checking in). Hopefully, they will have short-term camp sites sometime in the future.
It is VERY close to railroad tracks and they are VERY ACTIVE day and night. Long-term campers are workers and start their diesel engines early; i.e., 5:30 am.
On the plus side for this RV Park, these are large, long RV sites; mostly pull thru sites; fairly good WIFI and cell service; no problem with satellites since no trees.
If you are looking for a short term stay, look elsewhere. We would not stay here again. - vmi1962

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a very new camp ground and is still under construction. It is off to a good start with well laid out parking on crushed asphalt (I think it will be paved in the future). Sites are long & pretty level. Parking is back side to back side near your neighbor with hook ups between for both of you, while your front door side has plenty of space for a table. It appears the owners are working on the spaces in between to provide tables, but there weren't tables during our stay. No bathroom / shower house right now, but there are some portapotties. It is near a busy train track but the trains rarely blow their horns. It's mostly just the rumble you'll hear, which some folks may like. Overall, this place has good potential; and is an affordable place to stay while exploring the Denver area. My rating is based on it being a good place to park if you are self contained and don't expect 'resort' entertainments. - Rambling Registrar

This is an ongoing project, so during our time of stay it was just a field with a bunch of RV spaces. The owners are super friendly, they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The water hook-ups are top-notch and each site has both a 30 & 50 hook-up. There was no cable, but they offered free wifi and our antenna picked up over 30 local channels. They are constantly working to improve the place. The ''yards'' are huge! The way they have this place designed is genius. Each camper is back-to-back giving each lot a giant yard. There is a train track pretty close, BUT to our surprise it didn't bother us a bit. They don't blow a horn right by the park, and most of the time we never knew they were passing unless we were outside. They don't have any facilities, but like I said- they are just getting this place up and running so I'm sure in the future they'll have a lot more amenities. We were in the area for work and it was next to impossible trying to find an open lot in nearby cities. We stumbled across this little gem and we're glad we did! The town of Keenesburg is pretty small, but they have pretty much whatever you need (a little grocery store, dollar store, laundromat, auto parts, a few restaurants, ect.) If we have to go back to this region for work, we will definitely be giving the manager a call to reserve us a space! They have weekly rates as well as extended stay (monthly). Bottom line, these guys are good people.
Denver is about 30-40 minutes away

This is a small RV park (about the size of a backyard) at 917 31st Ave in Greeley. There is no sign, but it's down a driveway behind an auto repair shop and apartment at this address. Water pressure is quite low, so had to hand fill the water tanks and use the internal pump. Of all the campgrounds I have stayed at this had the filthiest rest room (there is one coed rest room- when checking in was told to knock before using restroom) Owner only comes down on weekends, but you can mail a check or pay on the weekend. Although absentee management you are given a business card in case of problems or questions, and he is quick to return calls. I learned to leave my screen door shut, otherwise one of the many friendly cats in the RV park will invite itself in your RV! - Traveling man

I don't even know where to start but will try going best to worst. The bathroom is clean enough to be tolerable - didn't use the showers but they appeared to be similar. That's the best. The sites are all gravel and dirt. No grass anywhere. They are literally side by side so slide-outs were within 1-2 feet of neighbor. You have to weave and duck to walk between sites. The whole place is pretty sketchy. We saw one site occupied by someone overhauling his pickup and apparently sleeping in the truck and my parents were nearly run over one night as the sheriff chased a vehicle through the campground. But wait, there's more. The host or ranger or whatever was the most awful, foul-tempered person I've ever encountered in a park. She yelled at people, accused one of our family of having expired license plates (they weren't), and ultimately kicked another one of my family out of the park (no refunds) saying their camper wasn't "legal". The alleged illegal camper was a recent private party purchase so no plates, rather, "In Transit", and keep bill of sale on you at all times, plate within 30 days - which is the law in our home state. Because that's apparently not the law in Colorado, she deemed them illegal and kicked them out (their pickup tow vehicle was plated and licensed). Her reasoning was they need to "keep the riffraff out". See above stories and know they aren't successful at keeping said "riffraff" out and her application of rules is inconsistent at best. We are a family of respectable professionals and retirees gathering for a family event in Colorado and we were treated horribly. Sadly, we had stayed at this park several years ago and it was much nicer and we never encountered such problems - so it has gone downhill fast. I will never ever consider staying here again. Find a Walmart parking lot - you'll be safer, better respected, and not be kicked out. - MamaK

It's a good place to stay when passing through Boulder. Some grass and gravel. We stayed overnite, but spoke with people who had been there vacationing and they liked it. Close to activities in the area. - skier1947

We were lucky to get the very last site that our rig could fit in - 30 amp electric only. The next day we were able to pull into a newer site with 50 amp and water. Sites are dirt but fairly level. We could not get satellite reception in the first site but were able to get it in the 2nd site. This is a very bare bones park with an automated system for paying. It's not possible to find an available site without using the machine which makes finding a site very difficult. You need to walk through and find sites without RVs and then go to the machine and plug in the site number to see if it's available. I will say the 2 park "rangers" were very helpful. We were here for a family reunion and all parks in the area from Denver north were full. Our reservation at a real park was mixed up so we had no choice but to stay here. It isn't bad for overnight if you can get in. Arrive early and hope! - dickens

We have stopped at this campground several times over the past 10 years to visit family in the area. Nothing has changed. The worn out laundry equipment, the broken down exercise equipment, even the worn out carpet in the office and pale green paint on the bathroom walls is still the same. The electric was spotty at times failing on several occasions during hot week we were there. Huge potholes that become mud holes at one end of the campground. Our neighbor complained of the pothole at his site and someone came by and threw a few shovel fulls of gravel down. The campground is mostly full of oil field workers who are generally quiet and leave early in the morning but their work vehicles and oversize pickup can make navigating some of the interior roads taxing. This is an old KOA campground that shows little evidence of improvement. If not for the workers it would be mostly empty because there is little to recommend it. Oh yes, during our day the stockyard stench was present nearly every day. - longgone

Didn't know if you paid monthly there is no refund if your stay is cut short. Didn't see rules till after you paid. Work truck broke down so he brought it home and traded out trucks and was driving his personal truck there while at work, and they accused husband of having aftermarket stuff done to his personal truck he had to use which was false it is all stock but they would not listen and were very rude about it. Space is horrible sites are so close together, not kid friendly. People are rude. So glad to be out of there and will never go back. Worst RV park we have ever been to! - Abeyta

Have stayed here before, so was not surprised. Nice park with level spots. As I only needed electricity and water, didn't opt for full hook ups. Did not watch television, so have no idea what the service is like. Staff was friendly and had no problems checking in. Was not asked age of rig. Good directions to site. I would stay here again when I am in the area. Price is very good. - redlou48

So sorry about this place. We stayed here many years ago and it was nice. Now mostly long term people with permanent things added to their sites. No one seems to pick up after their dogs. Parking was very crowded...had to unhook to even go to site. Office staff was very friendly. - travel2011

The park has power issues (very low voltage on one leg) which prevented the use of standard RV Surge protectors and low water pressure making showers a bit of a challenge.
RV Spaces are *very* tight. I had a family of HEAVY smokers next door that churned out more smoke than a Semi-Truck. With the trailers packed so close you get all the odors from your neighbor. Naturally they felt no reason to accomodate any nonsmoker requests. Had to resort to a filter mask. Due to tempuratures I was not able to use fans to clear out the RV air.
I was planning to stay through March, but ended up leaving after the first month. - WillD

We stayed in space where we had more room between our units as ours was older unit. Newer units with slides and awnings will find it more challenging. Laundry facilities are taxing the drain system and overflow the drains, yet no warning signs are placed out. When office closes, not always as hours posted, no one will answer telephone until voicemail is listened to the following day, unless Sunday. Read all park posted signs pertaining to video taping and supposed rules, it may make your stay "easier?".
Sites are "graveled" still have drainage issues. - Traveler25

Friendly owners which are very laid back. This is not your normal run RV Park. But I will stay here when ever we are in the area. Park could be greatly improved by making the permanent residents clean up around their sites. The Park has great access to the surrounding area. - From the Kites

This is more like a trailer park the a campground. This place is more then half full of permanent trailers.It is looking run down and old. The whole place needs a face lift. There are nice people living there but a lot of junk laying around. - dozerdog
