12 RV Parks near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado
Jul 2016 - $18.00
Up a some what steep dirt road that needed grading, this campground sits among a lot of downed trees. Many sites are unprotected from wind that blows through here almost daily. Most fire rings are older style, but most sites have a charcoal grill too. Nearby lake was extremely busy over the weekend as there is a day use area near by. While we stayed in site 8, we liked site 10 much better for the limited privacy it affords. Camp host woke us early one morning yelling at another camper, fellow seemed to pay very close attention to the goings on - maybe a little too much. Doubt we will return to this CG. We did like Red Feather Lakes for it's village charm. - Paul Gavin

Price paid reflects Senior Pass. This park is a hidden gem! Yes, it was damaged by winds in 2013 and there are a lot of trees down in the lower loop making it unusable/closed. The remaining sites are all really nice, as USFS campgrounds go. Trees that were damaged have, for the most part been cut down and removed. It's a lot more open than it used to be, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's plenty of space between sites, and a good mix of back in and pull thru sites. All have electricity, which was unexpected. Vault toilets in several locations. Easy access to Bellaire Lake itself, which is beautiful! Lots of folks come there for the fishing, which, from conversations with folks fishing, can be a mixed bag...some days good/some days not so good. One can easily hike around the lake. This CG is a good alternative to West and Dowdy Lakes that are closer to Red Feather. It's about 5 miles south of the main/paved road, and is dirt road access, but not a problem. There's also hiking trail access nearby. - ThomInColorado

Most importantly to note -- fill your tanks before you come to this park. There are water faucets at the bathrooms, but they are NOT threaded to allow you to fill with a garden hose. Road #69 is dirt. The south end is very, very steep & crooked. The camp host was very nice & helpful. Price reflects senior pass. - Retired & rambling

Nice place to stay it is just reopening under new Mangagement, Rustic cabins a RV lot. Very reasonable on the lake. - millerfamily

Beautiful, roomy, well-spaced, 15/30A electric site but at too high a cost, even with the Federal Senior Pass. $23/night for a USFS campground with no RV water fill (despite having a threaded water faucet right in front of the restroom) and no dump anywhere in entire town. We were told by the private contractor campground host that we had to go into town and buy water from the town water supply at the post office! After doing that, we found out that you can fill up a water container from the campground water faucet, carry it to your RV, and fill the tank manually, you just can't use a hose to fill it. Apparently, the hoses might cross-contaminate the water supply? First time I have ever heard that despite RVing in 33 states, including Alaska, and 6 Canadian provinces! Interesting that the campground hosts don't have to do that, just the "guests." You can take the hiking path around the lake to the "supermarket" on the opposite side of the lake. Doesn't have much in stock, but would do in a pinch. - fanrgs

Great campground. We stayed in site #23, which is lakeside. Several spots are, actually. We had a large pull through site (we have a 34ft 5th wheel) with 30 amp electric service, no sewer or water at the site (vault toilets and water faucet nearby). CG was very clean and the hosts were extremely nice. Will stay here again!!! - seven_campers

We camped here and really enjoyed ourselves. Our campsite was overlooking the lake and it was beautiful. Since this is part of Arapaho Roosevelt National Forest the area was lovely. Our campsite had electric hookups, no water but water spickets were located throughout the campground. A nice hiking trail goes around West Lake and also connects over to Dowdy Lake, which was fun to hike. Only vaulted toilets are available and they could be cleaned better. Shady trees throughout the campground. Each site has a table and fire ring. All in all: we really enjoyed our camp-out here. **IMPORTANT: Make sure to get reservations early. This campground fills up 4 months in advance for the entire summer, for weekends! - MonaK

This is my favorite campground close to home (Northern Colorado.) It is a NFS camp ground under private management. Pit toilets, running water but not at each site. NO filling of RV water tanks. No dump station in the area. Beautiful area. Many campsites are by the lake, or have a view of the lake. Lots to do: fishing, boating, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards. Nice easy and moderate hiking. We prefer sites with view but not next to the lake, as bugs are bad at twilight. We recommend reservations far in advance of camping dates. - Ftcollinscamper

Beautiful place to stay. We have a 41 foot rig with a full size long bed and one loop I would not try to go through again. A little narrow between a couple of trees. - Mleeder

Book early for Dowdy Lake, Colorado. It get booked up very quickly, usually 6months in advance. Back loop (sites 31-62) closes in the winter.
52 Rv sites (with electric H/U) 10 tent. Clean vault bathrooms, site raked and free of trash, clean firepit. No water hookup, no dump. Boat ramp in Day use area. Firewood $5. Bring a container for water as spigots are not threaded.
Hiking, fishing and a ton of wildlife!

This is a charming multi-level facility with camper spots, tent sites, and cabins for rent. We enjoyed our stay here and found it reasonably quiet despite being on 14 Highway. The owner is friendly and helpful. There is a limited grocery across the street that also services hamburgers, etc. - RV4CATS

Here you are paying for the area, not so much the campground. Getting here is a GORGEOUS 32 drive through the Poudre River Canyon (outside of Ft. Collins). This area is an outdoorsman paradise-hiking, fishing, kayaking, canoe, rafting, hunting, horseback riding, ATV. Very beautiful and peaceful. A 50 min drive into Ft. Collins. A little store across the street. This is family owned by people who care about their property, and if you are causing problems, she will let you know and if you don't correct the problem, you will be asked to leave. It also has cabins. This would not accept the website, which is www.canyonsidecampground.com. This would be perfect for a family reunion for an active outdoorsy family. She also has destination weddings, rents the entire area for $2000 for the weekend. Great tent area, playground. Wildlife on the canyonside, river across the street (easy walk, beautiful view). Right across the street from Archers Resort, which has some groceries, and a food truck that has reasonable hamburger-type items, and breakfast. - Enjoying_Retirement

Campground consists of 16 cabins, 4 tent sites and 3 pull-through RV sites. Considering the price per night, the campground was not well cared for. Restrooms and showers were not clean, hot tub was dirty. Although there were lots of rules upon check-in, no rules were enforced. Pets are an additional $10 per pet per site. Good scenery! Lots of trees! Tent sites are along the river and very scenic! No cell phone service available in the area and only one pay phone in the campground. Very buggy. Other campgrounds in the area appeared better than this one. We will be back to the area, but probably not to this campground. - colochoclab

A really nice CG on the Cache la Poudre river. Most campsites are just a few steps away from the river. Many sites are well separated from the others. All the back-in sites are large, most are fine for 40' rigs. All sites are level and have nice tent pads. There are several tent only sites, some right next to the river. The few pull thru sites are for 25' or smaller rigs. All the NF campgrounds along this 15 mile stretch of Cache la Poudre river have nice level gravel campsites. Kelly Flats CG does not take reservations. Really nice for those of us who can arrive on a Wednesday and plan on staying through the weekend, but don't know the area and which campsites are nice. In the peak summer period, these CG's fill up on weekends. So, if you know exactly which campground and which campsite you want to stay in, you can make reservations in four other CG's along the river. Note: This is a NF CG, no water, elect or sewer hookups. Just a nice pretty place to spend a few days. - A-S_Travels

A gem of a National Forest campground. The only Nat.For. campground in the area to provide electric hookups. Very scenic, very quiet, many hiking trails in the area and several major trails leaving from the campground. Very little use we believe due to the steep, 6 mile gravel road to get to the park. Despite this, we saw many large rigs arrive during our week stay. Don't let the gravel road deter you. The first mile is the steepest part and after that you are afforded with amazing views of the Poudre Mt area as you approach the park. The camp hosts were great. We had a problem with our dogs barking nonstop the first day we left for a hike and they were very professional when they brought it to our attention. The park is immaculate and the toilets were kept very clean. Group and equestrian areas are also available. - BranTaylor

Very clean and organized. Lovely host site and the host couple was very friendly and informative. We first met them when we mistook the pump house for a bathroom, located at the other end of the campground. Apparently they have hosted there for about 5 years. The setting of the campground is very natural along side of a winding river. Fishing top notch. Hosts showed us the best spots for trout. We plan to go back this coming season.
The spacing between lots is spacious and the lots are gravel with a covered, forested tree canopy. There is a fire ring and picnic table. - Johnco

Ansel Watrous is the first in a series of NF campgrounds located along Colorado Hwy 14 as you drive up the Poudre River canyon from "Ted's Place". We stayed in the "upper loop" as it is more RV friendly. (The "lower loop" has a hairpin curve at the entrance that restricts access to shorter rigs.) The lower loop had 7 RV sites and 3 tent sites, and each of the sites back to the Cache la Poudre River. The lower loop was long and narrow and sandwiched between Hwy 14 and the river. Fortunately the noise of the river masked the highway noise. We were disappointed that the Young Gulch trail, located just across the road was still closed due to the 2012 forest fires, but the friendly hosts directed us to the very pleasant Hewlett Gulch and Greyrock Mountain trails located down the road. Also located nearby is Mishawaka, where we had a very pleasant meal on their deck over the river. It is also a popular venue for concerts. The campsites were level and spacious. The hosts kept everything neat and tidy. Rafters use the river, and fishing is very popular. Our rate reflects the golden access discount. - midcenturynana

Nice location in the Poudre Canyon. Some sites are high about the river; therefore, not river sites as expected. There is significant road noise from the highway, especially during the summer. The river did provide some noise to block the road traffic, but it wasn't enough. Park was clean and well-kept. Ample vault toilets and water spigots throughout park. - Lisa CO

Nice clean NFS campground. We were in spot #30, on the secluded electrical loop. Vault restrooms very clean and odor free. Showers were fifty cents and lots of hot water. We would stay here again. I use a CPAP machine so it is nice to have electric. No cell service. - Jim Lee

As other reviews have pointed out, this is an outstanding campground, offering electric and dry sites. There are 4 loops -- Bear and McConnell loops have electric hookups. All the sites appeared to be level, the site we had certainly was. Paved interior roads, gravel pull thru and back in sites. Well spaced between sites. Hosts are excellent at keeping the CG well maintained and clean. Firewood available from the hosts. Non-threaded water faucets available throughout the CG, efficient fire grates for the sites. Challenging hike from the CG, the Kreutzer Trail, with interpretive information, and the McConnell trail that reaches Mt. McConnell -- elevation gain from 6600 feet to just over 8000 feet in a 4 mile loop. - ThomInColorado
