Loop D 109 29' travel trailer. We camped with our FCRV group for a total of 6 families. The campground was sold out as it normally is this time of year. The pads are pull through and level (took me 3 minutes to level the rig), but just barely enough for our rig and truck. Rangers will ding you for parking on the grass. Electric only which is fine for a short stay. The grounds are well kept and the showers were clean. Bring quarters, 25 cents per minute, 75 cents to start. I don't have a problem with that, but did not avail myself. Alcohol is NOT permitted. That said, so long as you are discrete and not obviously intoxicated, Rangers will not hassle you. They seem to be tolerant so long as you do not disturb others, but will ticket you and boot you without hesitation if you become a problem. I would have given 5 stars, but one of those nice Rangers poured out $40 worth of Crown (he could have ticketed me at $180). They lose one star because the lad giggled as he abused my booze.

| Great Place to Stay

Stayed at Boyd Lake State Park from June 26th through July 3rd. Great place to stay during the Colorado Sparkler. The staff is friendly and park is beautiful. The camp sites are level for ease of setup. The restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. The showers are a quarter a minute with a seventy five cent minimum. Will highly recommend this park to my family and friends.

| Excellent campground

Great stop. Very popular with locals on weekends, so reserve ahead of time. A great view is possible if you study the map. Laundry facility very clean ($1.75 to wash, $1.25 to dry). Yes, you pay for showers but it keeps the riff raff out and there are no lines. We loved the bike path that took us all over town. We stayed two weeks in our Class A motorhome.

| Geared towards families

By user-5879671... on 2017-10-23.

Just overnight for us. Lots of families with lots of tents, bikes etc. Probably mostly local people here for longer stays. Our site was not at level or shaded. Probably would not return

| Nice park

It's a very nice park, too bad every time we stay there, we get kicked out when the weekend comes around because it's booked up. I don't think state parks should take reservations. It should be first come first served. Otherwise, is a nice, quiet place with laundry and a swimming beach. Lots of room to walk the dogs.

| Beautiful Lake

Nice park. We were in #31 which is right beside the lake so great view. Many trees and hiking trail down to the lake. Very peaceful and not TOO close to neighbors.

| Okay campground

This campground is old, the roads are in bad shape and the the campsites are as well. Electric only which is okay for a 5 day or less stay. In addition to the camping fee you will pay a daily park access fee ($8 per day for out of state) and also .75 for a three minute shower, the bathrooms have no soap dispensers. I don't mind paying extra fees for nice facilities and clean amenities but this park has neither. Seems like Colorado has mastered the fee charge but doesn't provide decent and clean facilities in return. I'll pass on Colorado State Parks from now on and stay in private campgrounds.

Nice level pull through campsites. Electric only with water available at various places. Very clean restrooms and showers. Laundry facilities also nice. Great trails and very quiet. Usually sold out on weekends.

Can't say anithing about the showers but the toilets were clean. We' ve been there for one night. It was great. It's beautiful to walk along the like. Great place. But you have to pay 6 or 7$ a day for the statepark.
