This park is great. We stayed in the D loop again, which is perfect for larger rigs. Since the park is under construction due to their plan to raise the level of the reservoir, we had to go in the east entrance, but it's closer to the campground anyway so that wasn't a problem. Like several other Colorado state parks, this dam and reservoir are managed by the COE, while the park areas are managed by the state. D loop has full hookups until November, when they shut the water off for the winter. The other loops are really nice, but not big enough for us. We stayed in three different spots because we booked too late to get a long stint in the same space, but that was ok. The site we were in had a cancellation during a snow event that was coming up, so we didn't have to move. That was a plus! We like this park and will always put it at the top of the list when we come back to visit family in our old city of residence. We get the annual pass, which covers admission to ALL of the state parks, and is well worth the price. - Denise and Glenn

Price reflects camping only. There is also a daily access for of $8. Annual passes are available to cover the daily fee if you are a frequent state park camper. I have a lifetime pass that I paid a lot for but they refused to honor it because circumstances caused me to move out of state. I was disappointed that apparently lifetime does not really mean lifetime so my camping really cost me $41 per day. Check in was a little chaotic as numerous campers arrived at about the same time with only one check in station. That being said, the park is very nice with plenty of space between camping sites. OTA TV produced numerous channels. Can pick up Wi-Fi near the restroom facilities. Interior roads are blacktop and sites are level concrete slabs. Picnic table on small patio and fire ring at each site. Sites are cleaned by campground host after each departure. - Bobco

We enjoyed our stay here. We had a nice pull through with nice space between other campers and had lots of places to walk the dogs. There are bunny rabbits everywhere so have a good leash. There is construction in the area, they are raising the level of the lake. Its really going to be a summer hot spot. Make reservations early the locals book the weekends far in advance. We will stay here again. Littleton is a nice little town. - Davidsons

Senior mobile home park with mostly permanent residents. There are about 15 transient sites. Site was small, but adequate. Restrooms and shower were Ok, but need paint and maintenance. - Wayne B41

Location was good for us visiting family in the area. As others have stated, the speed bumps in the park are jarring. Our site was VERY tight, and there was a puddle of water to the rear left of the site. I suspect the puddle was from their sprinkler system leak. We parked our tow vehicle perpendicular to the RV in front, and had just enough room. This is essentially a mobile home park that has a limited number of sites for transients. We had no problems here, and it was pretty quiet during our 3 night stay. - novastorm

I stayed at South Park twice in a two week period and I will NEVER stay there again.
A Walmart parking lot would be a much better place than here.
Both times I was treated rudely by the groundskeepers and swore at twice by them!
And, when I went to the office to ask for one more night they brought up my reservation on the office computer, then said..."Sorry, we are all booked up until next spring!"
So I said, "Well, I guess I have to leave in the morning.", to which the park manager said "Yup!"
Well, at my next stop the very next night I was looking at my paperwork and realized that I had indeed already paid for that night...but they just let me go and still haven't refunded me for the extra night they charged me for.
I have several friends that live there and have been told that since I left 3 1/2 weeks ago nobody has been in the site I was in both times.
The park is very nice, laundry facilities are good and the swimming pool is awesome, but the RV spaces are so close and tight to back into, plus there are cars and trucks parked in the street that makes backing into the sites even more difficult since the sites are barely long enough for the RV's, let alone the tow vehicle.
30 amp plug was loose and had to use a padlock to hold my surge protector plug from falling out. Found out later that it is against park rules to padlock the power pole.
Plus, the pool and laundry room closes at 8 pm...hardly enough time for travelers to take advantage of these amenities.
It is almost like they really don't want RV'ers to stop there...only year round residents! - John_D

We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

Nice sites in a wilderness area in the middle of a city. The sites were nowhere near level and the water seemed to have oil in it. A good price for well spaced sites. - Thedogsma

Convenient location close to Red Rocks amphitheater. No water or sewer hookups at sites. No wifi or cable TV, but AT&T cell reception was OK. Back-in site was large enough for our 40 ft fifth wheel, and did not have to unhitch. No trees for shade, but had a picnic table and a fire pit. Reasonable rates for what you get. - Wayne60

A couple of things to note right off before you make a reservation here: 1) The sites are electric only. I think most, if not all, are 50 amp. 2) There are water spouts nearby, but you'll need a long hose if you want to fill from them. There is a water fill station on the opposite side of the campground from the entrance. 3) There are two dump stations that are easy to get into and out of, but seem to be busy often. The place is like an oasis in the middle of the city. The campground is nestled down between knolls, so you don't know you are in the city, unless you look really hard to the south to see a shopping center. It is barely visible as you can see the rooftops at night when their lights are on. The bike trails are fun to ride. It can be busy in the afternoon and weekends at the nearby lake, which has a nice sandy beach. - JazerNorth

Would not recommend. Nothing more than a parking lot. They turn off the water when it gets cold. They have picnic tables that they place on a hill. Water is every other site. No sewer. No trees. One shower facility. No other amenities. I have been to a number of fairgrounds and like this one the least. Their WiFi requires that you re-login frequently and blocked many sites (Netflix is a good example). Understandable with a large campground, but this one is very small. The wind comes off the mountain with no break. They have no trees or other shade. Don't show up at night unless you have support for backing in. It is pretty dim. - PeteAustin

Location, location. Finding a spot in the Denver area is very hard. This park is near I70 and U.S. 6. Easy to get to most attractions. Tight spaces and a lot of turnover. Very nice picnic area and playground. Odd requirements to register. You must show proof of ins. and regist. for all vehicles. There are gravel pull throughs long enough for most rvs and nearby tow vehicle parking. A downside is little physical security. Park is open at night with no gate. Sheriff patrols occasionally. We had no problems but would have preferred more controls. Limited 50A sites. We would stay here again. - captaincakes

Fairly quiet location. Sites are close together so if you have a bunch of slides on both sides and use your awning you aren't going to be happy. Level gravel site. - mrracechaser
Oct 2018 - $76.00
Our site had quite an angle to it. We needed to use blocks to level the trailer side to side. The park is relatively quiet and has a connecting trail to local open space for nice walks with great views of Denver. Staff were friendly and helpful. The park was clean. WiFi was satisfactory and Verizon worked. TV reception was poor. It seemed rather expensive for what we had. - Dreaming

Overpriced for the amenities in the park. We arrived at 11:45 and were assessed a 25 dollar fee for early arrival. Moving out and sitting at a large parking lot was not easy to accomplish, so they had us stuck. Couldn't leave as they collect a 50 percent non refundable deposit. This park has a world class set of rules and owners that are very clear to the staff that they are not to be bent or broken. Staff seemed to understand that this park has not been subject to good review, but their "hands were tied". We had an escort to our site who disappeared before I started pulling in to the site. Sites are small, leaving little or no room to park our toad, we have a 36 foot motor home, I can't imagine what a larger rig would do. Needless to say, this visit will be our last at this park. I hope that the owners of this park don't buy any others. - Uncle Joseph

We stayed here because I was booking at the last minute and the local parks were full. We paid the peak season rate even though the pool and hot tub were closed. There's a lot of traffice noise from several highways surrounding it. The shower was one of the best I've had with individual rooms, good pressure and temperature regulation. Our site was level but difficult to wiggle our 25' View into. A nice park but a bit pricey. There's a path up to a big grassy area to run dogs. - Thedogsma

The spaces in this park are very narrow & no space to park tow. My slide was almost touching my neighbor. Couldn't open awning because of closeness. Roads are very narrow & poorly maintained. Many old RV's with people living in them. Have 33 ft. rig & had difficulty getting in spot because of cars parked part way in road. Broke passenger mirror because of this issue. In addition, I did not feel safe here. I am a Thousand Trails platinum limited member & will contact them about my concerns, misleading pictures, & representation of this park. - vickie438

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith
Sep 2014 - $34.00
This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943

This is our first stay in this park in March, which is historically the snowiest month in Denver. We've stayed here several other times at different times of the year, and have enjoyed each stay for different reasons. This time we hunkered down for the Bomb Cyclone storm and managed quite well. The staff was plowing the Abilene loop multiple times as the snow was falling, and after getting rid of the pile they dumped in front of our driveway it was easy to get out and around. We saw owls, a bald eagle, and deer - including an albino deer, never seen one of those before! The Abilene loop is the only one open in the winter, but it has water bibs that allow it whereas the other loops don't. Since it's full 100% of the time the parks system should consider opening/modifying at least one other loop. With the new reservation system they don't charge a reservation fee any longer, which is nice since the whole campground is now reservation only. If you show up you have to either get online or call the phone number to GET a reservation before you can stay. However, they also raised the daily camping rate to $41 per night. That's up from $30 per night (in person) in Sept/Oct 2016. That seems a bit excessive, over 30% in 3 years. The rangers were great, patrolling frequently. They even woke us up at 8 in the morning to tell us the storm was coming (sorry guys, but as full-timers the weather is our #1 concern at ALL times!). Thoughtful, though, as their warning was the wind might cause power outages. And if there's no power, there might be no water. Like good scouts, we're always prepared, and while the power flickered several times during the storm event it never went out long enough to confuse the appliances. Winter is an experience, another notch on our belt. We'll be back because it used to be our home and we have friends and family in the area. We truly like this park. - Denise and Glenn

Very nice park with great views and wildlife. We saw deer and heard coyotes or wolves and owls. During winter, there is just one loop open so pretty sparse, but the spaces are nicely spread out. They have heated water faucet which is nice for this time of year to lower freezing issues. They don't really keep the streets clear of ice, but with the weather, it is manageable. Lots of activity in the park with cyclists and joggers. Service is fine, we didn't really see anyone. There was one day a camper had damaged the water so we did not have water supply as they worked on it. By the end of the day, we were back to having water. We only learned this by calling office, there was no notice given to campers like a left message on phone or note on windshield. - PicturingRVLife

We stayed here for 3 nights while passing through on our way to Breckenridge for skiing. This was a great location for shopping for ski gear. There was a lot of snow at the campground which was so pretty, and only the Abilene loop was open in January. It was great to have full hookups at a state park. The sites in the Abilene loop are spacious. The camp hosts were so friendly and we enjoyed talking with them. We would definitely stay here again if in the Denver area. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile all worked well. - Love2Camp777

This park is located on I-70 about 10 miles west of downtown Denver. It has gravel driveways and site pads, well covered with gravel meaning no dust. We had a pull through site with full hook ups, 50amp electric. The WiFi was excellent. The bathroom/shower were good and kept clean. It's kind of an odd arrangement in that you get a key to one of the 7 or 8 restroom/shower combinations. At any rate, nothing super special here but a good solid experience. We paid $41.80 per night. - Coopsecondact

This park is basically a gravel parking lot with no extra frills, but it worked well for us. Our space was pull thru, fairly easy to get in and out, and nice gravel. We had full hook ups but we had to run the electric cord and the water hose under the rig to the hook ups on the opposite side. The sewer was on the correct side. They had free WIFI but it seldom worked. The women in the office was very nice. We used the public transportation to go into Denver and the bus stop was very close (maybe a block). There was a lake next door with walking paths. - JackieD

We were going to stay three nights, but left after two. The office was closed Sunday and Monday so couldn't get number for the laundry room, and I had laundry to do.They had a paper with our site number on it and that's it. No number for the laundry, restroom or shower. The sites are roomy, and the roads are wide. People raced thru here not paying attention to the speed limit. Dogs barked all the time. - Sheila Rosson

We were here when there was a lot of snow. The park was full but they said they had room for our 37 foot motorhome. They put us up against the fence. Luckily there was no slot next to us as we had to go in diagonally in order to fit in the space and reach the water. The park is very tight! And not many spaces, especially the back in spots, are really good for a bigger rig. We were also crossing snow piles since we could not go back into the space directly. As for the park, the location is perfect and has a popular trail right next to it. It is very picturesque especially with the snow and mountains on a clear day. The trail was nice, though also meant it was very busy with residents talking and using the trail, early and late. We would like to go back to explore Golden again as it is a cute town with lots of character and good spots to shop/eat. - PicturingRVLife

This is one of the most difficult city parks we have been to. Difficult because it is tough getting a site here as it is always full. The location is great, right outside of Old Town Golden, and the Old Town area is fantastic. Lots of shops and eateries to choose from, and even the Coors Brewery and bottling plant is nearby (Yep, we did the tour). The RV park has a variety of sites sizes, but not a lot of larger ones. We were in site "D" which was just big enough for our 40' Bus. There is a river that runs right behind the park with a paved exercise path that we used daily. On the other side of the river is the Colorado School of Mines, and many of the students use the path for exercise or training by the cross country running teams. In spite of all the pedestrian traffic we were never disturbed even though our site backed right up to the path. We paid $55 a night for a FHU 50 amp site that had a gravel parking pad but a cement patio. Close attention is required when pulling into a site due to the large trees and over hanging branches. We saw a lot of folks pull into the campground only to pull right out again because they had no reservations. Our T-Mobile air card worked well here, and we were able to get satellite despite the tall trees. The restrooms are older but clean, and are handicapped accessible. One thing being a city park, the full size trash truck comes into the park and empties the dumpster every day. I guess there is no danger of over flow that way. At an elevation of over 5600' Golden gets warm days and cool crisp nights, at least in September. I think by December things may be a bit more chilly. This is a highly recommended city park, just don't forget your reservation. - SargeW

This park was weird. Picturesque location in a city park, but for a public park, the sites were tight. We had enough room to get into our site and move around, but nothing extra. Sites were relatively level. The hookups were weird. The water hookup was at the very front of the site, and down in a hole in the ground, and I wasn't able to get my blue filter hooked to it. I'm from the area and knew that the water was good, so I was okay skipping the filter, but it was still odd. There were two sewer hookups on the site, one at the very front and one in the very back. Electric was in the very back. Also, there was a power cord plugged into the 20 amp outlet. It ran through the ground and into the hole the water hookup was in, where it was apparently supposed to be plugged into something else. Both ends of the electric core were in there. There was a massive rainstorm the night we were there. In the morning, the hole was full of water and both power cord ends were submerged in the water. I was grateful for GFCI outlets. We never figured out we're the cord went. This is a city park, and there's a popular trail going right by the creek side sites, so not a lot of privacy. But there's also a nice park next door and a community center with a pool. Check in was strange. The office closes at 4 pm. We had reservations, so at 3:45, the woman from the office called us, asked us when we were going to arrive (4:15), and gave us the codes for the restrooms and showers. When we arrived, there was a traffic cone and a reserved sign blocking our site. If you're going to arrive after 4 pm, I would recommend calling and getting the door codes. - AnnP
