Chatfield is a large park with many things to do. I stayed in loop A and all spots were pull-through. I was very pleased with the park and would definitely stay here again. - Michael_T

LOW CLEARANCE!!!! The entrance from Hwy 121 in ONLY 13’! Big rigs must be aware of this. If you get to the booth you will have to back up 300 to 500 feet to make a u-turn and go the entrance on Roxborough Park Road. Signage for all this is none existent! What kind of a Park doesn’t post warnings? - TRDAWG

This is a beautiful campground. Close access to Denver and the mountains. Sites are spacious with concrete parking pads, large metal tables and a fire ring on a fine stone pad. We come here again - Woody48

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

I have never had a near altercation at a park with an employee before today. We pulled into this park, paid and drove to our site. The site had the water and sewer hook ups under the RV. Yes, under the RV. Once you pull in over the hookups, you get to climb under your RV to connect a hose and the sewer hose. Hopefully you have enough room between the hook up and the bottom of your rig, otherwise you are out of luck. While we were hooking up, the park manager stopped by for the second time during our parking and I asked him why the hookups were under the pad as that is horribly bad for RVers. He jumped in my face, poking his finger at my nose, telling me that he didn't like my attitude. I asked him with a "please" to not poke his finger in my face and he asked me if I wanted to try to assault him. LOL. I told him it was just a bad set up for a full size RV and he proceeded to lecture me about how he was doing me a favor by letting us stay at the park and that I could F off and leave. My wife and I went to the office to see if we could talk to someone more reasonable and he was waiting in the office with who we guess is his wife. She started in on us before the door closed that we had a bad attitude and that we should leave because they had no use for our bad attitude. My wife asked if we would get our money back and the office manager threw our check at her, gave us a few more F offs and told us not to ever come back. Deal! The park is seriously sketchy. They would have gotten a 1 star review even before the altercations. The park is mostly long term/full time residents that have super old park models, trailers, etc. with junk all over the place. They have cars parked randomly around the sites and along the streets making it nearly impossible to get to your site. I try not to be negative about the parks, but the managers here and the trashiness of the park in general make this one to avoid at all costs. - Gary Gilliam

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

Nice roomy sites and paved pull throughs. Spacy and lots of trees and grass. Bring bug spray and mosquito repellant especially at dusk. There are hiking and biking trails. Fishing, boating and swimming are within a short distance. Cherry Creek is surrounded by suburbia so traffic noise is noticeable but tolerable. - dirtherder

Camped here in a 40' MH with tow for 5 days. Site 79 was a back-in that allowed us to have some shade. Park is well maintained Wifi was spotty and weak at our site. One complaint for us was that we could not sleep with the windows open at night for fresh air as too many people lit campfires which made the park really smelly and smoky at night. Probably the only decent park near Denver. - denvercats

Easy to see why this State Park stays booked up all the time. Very nice and spacious sites separated from other sites more than adequate. Courteous check in experience. Obvious law enforcement patrol on a regular basis. Hope to visit here again. - Rebel Yell

25.00 $ a night including electricity up to 50 amps inside an nice park and at the "entrance" of Denver means: THIS IS AN NICE CAMPGROUND, WHERE WE WOULD STAY EVER, when we are in the Denver Region!
You do have enough space for the motorhome and the tow-car! OK, you didn't have water or sewer at the site ..... but look at the price and the region! You are able to use an dump-station and (at an other place) an water-fill station (both at the circle-route round the campground-sites). This campground is well maintained inside an nice park including the lake.
On Labour Day the park was crowded, but inside the campground it was quiet. Only the traffic-noise could be heard, depending on the wind-direction.
When the main-gate is closed, they are opening an other gate only for the campground. This entrance lies hidden. But you gets an map at the check-in, which shows this late-entrance clearly. Better, you have to use this map, but not the GPS, when you are returning late in the evening. - Dietmar

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

Ensure you enter through the Mississippi gate. Busy but very quiet. Only noises are fighter jets and helos. Free laundry, showers and bathrooms on site. - Dan Hof

Very nice and open area. Peaceful and quiet until around 9 am then the jets start flying. Its actually awesome to watch! - crazyboy135

Nice park. Quiet. Location is great. Lots of space at each camp site. A few nice trails to walk dogs on. No dog park. Security of being on the base. Commissary and Exchange. Not a lot of planes flying over like other bases I've stayed at. Had a minor misunderstanding when we arrived. Our camp host came by to greet us. We signed in at the Outdoor Rec Center the next morning. Three days later we get a call asking if we are still coming. We got it all cleared up. The laundry room is free. But only 2 washers and 2 dryers. That's okay except the washers don't work half the time. We wound up finding a laundromat to do our laundry in most of the time. One of our final days all 4 happen to be working at the same time. I was finishing my laundry when a pregnant lady with 5 kids came in to do her laundry. Her oldest daughter was very chatty and told me they didn't live here they just come here to do laundry. Camp host is mommy's friend and let's us come here. Rules state only RVers. There clearly isn't enough washers for outsiders to come in and do their laundry too. I never used the shower/restroom area. The grass around park needs to be cut. It's like 10 inches tall. There doesn't seem to be a set schedule. They cut it whenever. Not sure what's going on with RV next to us. I think it's abandoned. Really makes park look bad with the couch and sofa just sitting there on a trailer. Sofa has been there a long time. You can see where sun has bleached it. We spent over 5 weeks here, and it's been just sitting there. No fault of the park but I have to mention the moths. We catch a dozen a day in our RV. Guess it's the biggest complaint in the park. It's a nice campground. However I would probably stay somewhere else if I were in the area again. The park really needs better management. The outdoor Rec center needs to take more charge of this park. - RLKeller

Denver Meadows is not a pretty park, it has many older trailers and the utilities can be in poor location on some sites. There was a mobile home community as part of the park. Those mobile homes are being removed and some of those sites are being used for long term RV's. It is one of the least expensive parks in the Denver area. Our site was an old asphalt surface but there are sites with grass and trees. The 50A breaker kept flipping despite a built in energy management system in our coach. When I went to the office, they were very willing to put in a new breaker and it was done within two hours. Some sites for large vehicles are double sites which are used as single pull through sites. The park lies between I-25 and the Denver Light Rail. A small creek parallels the light rail line. This location is thus somewhat noisy but also makes it pretty inaccessible to casual traffic. The interstate highway has a sound barrier which reduces the noise but you will be able to hear the traffic day and night. We stayed a few days more than three weeks and never had any security concerns. The park is within sight of the Fitzsimmons Veterans Hospital and Anschutz Colorado University Hospital. The light rail station is also close enough to walk or ride a bicycle. There are shopping areas within several miles south of the park but no retail outlets in the neighborhood. We will stay at this park again. - LivinTheDream

I stayed here because of work and I was unable to find another RV park that had an extended stay. The second worst park I have ever stayed in. It is so bad, I am moving to another city an hour away just to get out of here. And here are the reasons why.
1. Cost, it is $376.00 a week for 50 amp site, no discount for a month. So for the month I stayed there, it was $1504.00. 2. Location, it is on the edge of the hood, and homeless people walk through the RV park. There is a homeless camp just down the walking path. 3. The site is an asphalt parking lot that has seen its better days, lots of holes and humps, and the only grass is the weeds that they never mow. 4. Problems with the site, one day the water was off for hours, another day the electricity went off 4 different times, I was told it was because the 50 amp trailers were all running both airs at the same time, duh, you pay for 50 amp so you can run both airs on a hot day!! 5. Value, there is none, other than being in the city. No Wifi, no cable, a laundry mat where 4 of the 8 washing machines were broke. Let’s just say that I won't say I would never stay here again, but it will be my last choice if I do, just like it was this time around. - CambucK

This is by far the worst RV park we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many!! City needs to inspect this place!! Not safe and not clean what so ever!! Sewer connection backs up. Power connection is nasty. - Kristy Sharpton
Dec 2018 - $40.00
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

Booked two sites during our stay. Staff was cordial but anytime we went to the office it was always NO, the owners won't agree to it. Pricey, park outdated, too close together spaces, very rough internal roads. Very noisy. Across the street bands played until 2 am. - scoots46

This is one of those over priced, under delivered “Resort” parks that charge an arm and leg for camping. It’s is one of only a few available campgrounds west of Denver so we had no choice after a 7 hour drive from Moab UT. To add insult to injury they charge an extra 10% because it was Labor Day weekend. It’s obviously not a popular park as there were lots of sites available. The city run campground was unfortunately full. The pool and hot tub were being shut down for the season when we arrived. We were given a back in site adjacent to a manufacturing plant. At least it wasn’t on the other side of the park near the motorcycle bar with the god awful country band.
They have both back in and pull through sites. Our back in site was very narrow and short there was plenty of room for our slide outs and utility connections but the passenger side and access door exited directly into a utility on the next campsite and drainage ditch. Our site had a concrete slab that was off level 2 inches from side to side and the road slopes opposite of the site making uncoupling and coupling difficult Many of the pull through sites had entrances so steep that they were only accessible from one direction hence making them back in or pull in site only.
Restrooms were older but fairly clean not as updated and clean as you would expect for the price we paid. The plastic picnic table had a huge burn mark in the center of it and was bent on one end making it difficult to use.
As I stated earlier there was a pool and hot tub just not functioning during our visit. There is also a very small back yard type play structure for children.
If you’re desperate and in need of a site for one night I guess this place is fine otherwise in our opinion we will never stop here again. If you do decide to stay here request a pull through site that is easily accessible. You will however pay a higher rate. - Funengineer

Entrance is clearly marked, exit is not. Turns are tight and spots are very close together. Reserved a pull through as we were only here one night passing through. Even so the guide to the site said most have to unhook to be able to maneuver into the space. We did not have to unhook, but having to do so negates benefit of pull through. Quiet time did not apply to the very loud biker bar directly across the street. We will not return. - sgm_rick

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
