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

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

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

We spent 4 days here on our way down to the Rocky Mountain National Park. The park is fairly large, with two sections. We stayed in the newer section which had nice level concrete sites with nice picnic tables and fire rings. The road to the campsite, is dirt with some pot holes, so drive slowly once you are off the blacktop. Our site was directly beside one of the lakes, so we had nice views the entire stay. The site that we were in was full hookups with 50 amps, but some of the older sites, do not have sewer hookups. We did not use the bath house, so no comment on that. You are close to almost anything that you would want, so it makes it very convenient. We would stay here again if in the area. - Newjade

This parks plus, convenient to HWY 25 is also it's biggest draw back. Other than right next to HWY it is a very nice park, Full hookups, lots of birds, great views of the front range. - Kevincolorado

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

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

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

Carter Lake is a wonderful place to bring your boat! The Eagle campground is well kept and clean. It is an older campground and could use some improvements to interior roads and sites. Roads are gravel and dirt and some places can get a little steep when moving your rig around. Electrical hookups only and water spigots are situated here and there. Closest dump station is at the Ranger station about 15 minutes away. Our site, E-05, was a bit unlevel, it has the best view of the reservoir in the entire campground. Quite spectacular! Cell service was awful with T-Mobile. No wifi available. Shower house is fairly new and clean, but a bit pricey. You must purchase tokens for $1 each. 2 token minimum to start for 6 minutes. Eagle Campground is just across the street from the main marina and marina store, very convenient! There is ample parking for boats and extra vehicles next to the campground neat the shower house. Only really crappy thing that happened (Not the CG's fault) was some idiot stole my boat cover off my boat one night! Rangers were quick to respond, but a dead case. - colochoclab

This is our second stay here at Carter Lake. This reservoir is a great place to bring your boat! Big and quiet even on a weekend! We camped in Eagle Campground across the street from the marina. Super close to the boat ramps and ample parking next to the campground for your boat and tow vehicle. A new shower house is close by all within walking distance from your campsite. Electric only, a dump station is a few miles away at the ranger station, water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Beautiful scenery! Fairly heavily wooded area. Beware, the roads in the campground are tight and fairly steep at places, but manageable. Our site E-16 had a great view of the lake! Drawback of this particular site was it is crazy un level. 2 packs of leveling blocks plus some spare wood needed to level our 30 ft trailer. Most sites are fairly level, but be prepared. Quiet campground, moderate ranger presence so no issues! Spotty cell service with T-mobile. We will definitely be back! - colochoclab

I am giving this park a negative review based on the first campground loop; we did not try the other loops. The positives - the hosts were friendly, the lake was beautiful and the marina store was great. They cleaned out your fire pit every morning, which was a nice touch. The negatives, and why we won't stay here again: the roads were in horrible condition, all dirt, just one giant pothole. That was the easy part of getting in! The entrance to the first campsite loop is up a hill, on a tight turn, flanked by trees and a side slope - all on loose gravel. We made it intact - barely, thanks to 4WD on our tow vehicle. Others weren't as lucky, as both trees on each side of the slope were completely gouged out by vehicles. Then we made it to our campsite. Not only was it incredibly unlevel, it was on a dirt/gravel mix that made it impossible to get traction. Even with 4WD enabled, we were still spinning our tires. We couldn't get the trailer on leveling blocks because the gravel would shoot them out. And we weren't the only ones, all through the park you could hear tires spinning on gravel as people returned to their campsites. In addition, the grass was not mowed and we saw numerous snakes at our camper, along with dead ones on the road. I would only camp here if you choose your site in person ahead of time and verify that you can enter and exit safely and that the site is indeed level. We did see some sites better than ours that were occupied. - wookiemouse

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

This campground is beautiful and spacious. Well located close to Loveland, Berthoud and Longmont, CO. The three stars on value relate to the fact that it's an electric only campground, with no showers for $32. You can drive to nearby Carter Lake campground for showers which are wonderful. The rangers here were very nice and helpful, willing to answer questions. The campsites are very large. The setting is really pretty. The toilet houses were very clean. No firewood sales on site - you can buy at the marina at Carter Lake. Campground was very quiet, although mostly full. Apparently this is a fishing paradise and lots of folks were fishing. Nearby Carter Lake has showers and a marina shop where you can buy firewood and other essentials. Carter Lake itself is great for sailing. Dump station is at south end of Carter Lake - about a 15 minute drive away. - Joaowens

This was my first trip of the year and the weather was fantastic. The reservoir isn't large, but it's nice. We stayed on the far end of the park where there are good views of the water, but the sites were not level. In addition, my motor home was too tall and wide to fit in site F16. If I stay here again I would stay on the lower section where sites are flat and open. The road is very close by, so you hear traffic most of the time. The worst part of staying in Larimer County is the daily fee, though, that you must pay on top of the camping fee. It is more expensive than the state parks fee, and the annual pass only covers three parks. This is probably the only time I will get an annual pass for Larimer County. - OffroadGirl

We stayed at this park as the RV campgrounds in Estes Park were not open at this time of year. This is a very small reservoir with a nice camping area surrounding the water. At our pull through site the electric tower was on the wrong side of our coach necessitating running the hook up under the trailer. While this was inconvenient it did allow us to have a view through our larger side windows to the lake. We had a covered picnic table and a fire pit in a large area. It appears that the one way road entrance was changed without regard to electric hookups. There is no sewer dump at the park and the closest is at the South entrance which was about 20 minutes from the park past Carter Lake. There is one potable water faucet which did have threaded if needed to fill up, however it was very close to a site and would necessitate parking in the road to use. The park was completely full on the week-end and the spaces were all reserved. There are pit toilets available which were clean at this time of the year, however we did not see anyone stocking or cleaning the bathrooms and there appears to be no Park host. During our stay we had considerable rain and the roads and site were fairly muddy. The lake is too small for motorized boats but we did see people using kayaks and fishing. We had OTA television stations, but Verizon service was spotty and limited. There was no AT&T service. There is no designated dog area so walking was limited to the park road area and down near the shore of the lake. We would stay in this park again if we were in the area. - bbmidwife
