This beautiful state park is located conveniently right off I-25 so fuel, shopping and restaurants are nearby. Check-in was easy as this is a reservation only/site specific park. All sites are long and level with a concrete pad for the camper and the 20/30/50 electric box, a fire ring, and a covered picnic table. Sites 1-41 are both back-in and pull-off with electric only. Sites 42-87 are pull-off with FHU. Sites are far apart and there is lots of open green space and trails around several lakes for recreation. There are also several day use fishing areas. Bathrooms and the pay showers were clean. There is also an $8 a day "daily " fee in addition to the campsite fee. - JoyceM

In addition to the daily rate, you'll need to decide if you wish to pay $8 per day for your stay or buy an annual pass (good for 12 months and good for all CO state parks). Be careful if you have a toad. If it's NOT ATTACHED when you arrive, you may need to pay an additional $8 per day or buy an additional annual pass. We encountered a linkage problem with our toad and had to disconnect prior to arrival. Only by the 'grace' of the attendant were we not charged extra for the tow car permit. However, she felt caught between the official policy and her leniency. Check out sunrise and sunset over the water- quite spectacular. Remember to get enough quarters to pay for the $0.75 four-minute shower each day. The 'official' direction for approaching this pull-through site put our rig on the opposite site to the power stanchion. We were able to pull into the site from the opposite direction. - snabo

If it didn't seem like we were camping on the shoulder of an interstate because of the incredible road noise, we would give this place a 10. Extremely serene environment next to small ponds and sheltered picnic tables. Modest walking trails around all the ponds. Lots of room around all the sites. - Dennison

Basic, but clean park. Utilities worked well. Spent four nights; no problems described by previous reviewer. Dirt over gravel, level sites, adequate-width interior roads. Sites are close together, a few with limited shade. Most sites are pull thru with some back ins. Price is dependent on utilites at site: none, water only, water and electric. No sewer, but dump station included in price. Most of the surrounding grassy areas are filled with foxtails, so walk dogs along road or across street in fairgrounds. No reservations, self-service site selection and fee station; enter a site number and displays whether it is available. Campground "office" window has no set hours, and if not staffed when you arrive the shower/bathroom code is not available unless the window empoyee happens to return, or you can find a random fairgrounds employee driving around in a cart. According to the sign, the dump station is locked after 4 PM, except when it isn't. It is difficult to enter the dump station driveway from the park because of the placement of the trash bin, so turn around across the street in the fairgrounds parking lot and enter through the campground driveway. No internet and AT&T had low service. TV reception was good from Denver. Many restaurants and shopping close by. It is an inexpenisve base for sightseeing. We would stay again. - LoneWolf

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 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

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

This is a former KOA with gravel interior roads and pads. The interior roads and pads are well maintained, the office staff was helpful. The RV park is located just off I76 in an industrial area. The biggest drawback, clearly noted on the campground website, is the close proximity to railroad tracks. Trains run all night long and whistle at several intersections. We were there for one night while traveling through. - Jim1924

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

Although this RV park did not have amenities and was very basic, we were happy to have it available. There is no other RV parking in the vicinity of Boulder. Since we wanted to visit our daughter there, we needed this play to stay. The management was friendly, but Wi-Fi only worked inside the building. - Ricky724

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

Really nice to stay here with a lovely view over the lake! We had site # L 10, which one is very spacious for our 40' motorhome. Easy and nearly leveled parking. It was quiet there and a you do have a good value for you money. Enjoy as we did! - Dietmar

Ive had a great stay here, all the staff is very helpful, the bathrooms and showers are very clean the grounds maintenance cleans them every morning which is very nice. All in all it is a great place to camp out. - Alex_Imagine

The roads are winding and they're not clearly marked, so it is difficult finding out where to go.
We were woken by police officers shaking our tent at 4 AM, as was everyone else at the campground. It was horrifying.
It is always very full, and there are tons of loud children and infants. - Hayley W

Small clean city park in a rocky valley next to a bubbling stream. OK access from the south (Boulder/Denver). Lots of city roads and stoplights to get in from the north and out to the east, which was our route. No wifi. Water/Sewer/50A at the back corner. Never saw the park staff but didn't need them. ReserveAmerica added a $10 online reservation fee. Ouch. - Randy Burnet

This place was very recently refurbished, and it's a really pretty, smaller park. You get the mountains in the backdrop, and fall is really beautiful here. The park has tons of amenities and things for kids to do. The city put a LOT of money into this place, and it's super walkable to cool things in town like the original Oskar Blues Brewery. It's not far from Boulder either. The camp host was exceptionally nice, and while the spot we initially reserved would up being more difficult to navigate (the sewer connection was just too far back), he quickly switched us to another spot that was a lot better. We were in spot 4, and you get really pretty views, whereas 12 was backed up to the trees (you wouldn't be able to see as much), and the sewer connection was next to the fence. AT&T cell service was good, but they don't have Wi-Fi. We really enjoyed this place and would recommend it to others. We paid $530 for 14 days. It wasn't busy in October. - Anthony D

This RV Park has been completely rejuvenated after a terrible flood. New sites have been made. Unfortunately the price to stay here has escalated so that the park is no longer good value. All the sites are back-in. In half the sites, trees prevent getting satellite reception. Management seems unaware of the desire of many to get satellite TV reception, so all the sites backing up to the trees are filled while the more open spots are empty. There are rules against using charcoal barbecue except in the awkward pits provided by the park (Only one nearby for the motor home people.) We used to like this park, but because of the price and the problems with TV reception, we are unsure if we will stay there again. - hoppytoad
