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

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

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

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

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

Directions to campground were poor. We had no Internet or telephone service but 44 channels over the air tv. We were in the new section of the south campground up on a hill overlooking the lake. Site was somewhat level. Very breezy in late afternoon. 20 miles to Loveland. - daviputnam

Dogs are welcome but most people do not pick up after their animal. Many/Most of the sites are almost not navigable, very rough and impossible or difficult to get your RV level enough to use your refrigerator.
This is a County park and although a beautiful place the sites are small and not level. We have stayed at this camp ground 2 times and both time our awning was damaged but very harsh and sudden winds (gusty unexpected). Fishing is great but do not put out your awning. - Rex & Carol

We stayed in E38 and it was a great site for our fifth wheel plus a tent pad. My daughter had her 17th B-day Camping party. The restrooms were close by and the showers too for her guests. I loved that it was within walking distance of the marina. We rented a boat and brought it there. We rented a slip for 2 nights so we could come and go on the lake. It was a fun trip. The park rangers were very present there so if you want to come and be rowdy this place isn't the place to do it. They stopped a few times for our neighbors and once to our site because the kids had their iPods playing music after 10 PM. I really enjoyed this trip. Last year we got a horrible site, E11. It didn't house our 5th wheel well at all. There was a tree that got in the way of our slideout so we had to face it in a different way than probably intended. It put us in downward facing when we stepped out the front : / This trip was very fun and we loved the site and it was within an hour of our home. - themayerfam

We stayed in the electric/water only portion of the campground. The electric was 30 amp. Spaces are small with just enough room to let the slides out. It was hot in Denver while we were there and the power just could not keep up with the demand. Our air conditioner would barely work. There also is no dump on site. There is also a FHU area with 30 amp power. There are no reservations and these sites are hard to get. Wifi is not available on the sites; only in the clubhouse. The clubhouse is nice and spacious, food OK, drinks good. Not sure I would I would stay there again without a sewer hookup. - Phaeton Joe

Called ahead and was told by the RV park host that there was one full-hook site available. When we arrived site #14 was empty so we took that. Very tight space with a 90-degree back-in. Ok for a motorhome but a large 5th wheel may have issues. Good 30 amp electric with very high water pressure. Make sure you use a restrictor. We went to the bar to pay for our site. Very friendly lodge. Dinner was a huge smothered burrito which was delicious. We will be back. - StarlifterFE

This park is strickly for Elks Club members and their guests only. A very nice park with 40 sites. 50 amps FHU $20, 30 amp FHU $18. Water and electric only $16. They say they have a dump station. The lounge is very nice and they have lunches and dinners. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area. - kathiecarlson

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

Lucked into this campground when we planned a last minute trip. About an hour away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Campground is situated in a beautiful valley. No hookups and cannot accommodate large RVs. (Narrow roads) Campground is popular, but we were able to come in early on a Sunday and get a first come first serve spot. Restrooms are pit toilets, but they are and I am not kidding, the cleanest campground restrooms i have ever seen! Hiking trails near campground in Roosevelt National Forest. Beautiful scenery and great place for spotting moose. Even had one walk through our campsite. - CansasKamper

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. - ThomInColorado

Great campground. Within 1-2 hours of Boulder/ North metro Denver. Dry camping, but we had a generator so no problem for us. No amenities, just a great get-away location. Kids had fun exploring the stream, riding bikes, etc. Will definitely return! - co_campers
