Pros: The sites are nicely spaced and well maintained. Most are pull-through and have fire grates. We saw deer move through and there are lots of songbirds. Cons: Even though quiet hours are supposed to from 10-8, there was loud music and partying going to well after midnight, and this was at a site very near the camp host's site. Also, there are railroad tracks nearby that can be heard at all hours.
Great State Park large paved sites , no wifi but good cell phone service
Big sites and everything, including the restrooms and showers ,very neat and clean. we were visiting relatives in downtown Denver but felt that this place was even worth the 45 minute drive each way. It was quiet, plenty of restrooms, nice tables, firepits, and RV pads. the showers are 50 cents for 3 minutes. coin machine available. Nice laundry area. Only negative: paying $8 per day entry fee to the park on top of the camping fee (we paid $22 for electric only site). this is way too much and ridiculous. campers should only have to pay a one time entry fee for the length of their stay. anyway, be prepared to pay the $8 per day in addition to your camp fee.
It was our maiden voyage for our camper. Enjoyed the stay and will probably go back someday.
The reservation system is flawed. Although a spot may be available, you must wait until 12pm to pay for it. If you are already camped in another spot and need to move, this kills your whole morning since they will not let you pay at 9am when they open. They will remind you that you should have booked a site six months ago to avoid reservation inconveniences. The sites are big, clean, and nice. HOWEVER...you had better go and look at your spot first before you pay, because if you want to change you will have to pay for the additional site. There are no refunds or modifications allowed. There is a great dog park here, BUT...the dog park is six miles away on the other side of the park so forget walking there. Many of the sites remain pre-booked, open and unused and the park does not have a policy to free these sites up. There is NO OVERFLOW parking and they do NOT provide walk-in spots on the weekends, so plan on staying at the Walmart on Coal Mine as a back-up plan.
This looked like a great park. There were lots of empty campsites, but when we went to check in, the nice gentleman was working between two computers to find a spot, and then cancellations and couldn't find a place for us that was suitable. It took about 25 minutes for us to decide to go elsewhere. Colorado needs a better system for reservations. Also, if we pay for a daily pass, I think the dog park should be included and not an additional $2 charge. It seems they are adding on every time you want to do something.
Nicest RV site we have ever stayed in. Level paved pull thru with cement pad with nice table. Sites were very spaced out with open areas all around.
Love the size of the sites and that they are spaced out nicely. Great paved area for vehicles, concrete patio for picnic table. Fire pit large but locked in place too close to the RV. Little road noise and random train. Only real complaint is that you pay $32/nite for FHU and on top of that must pay $8/day park fee. That’s a bit much. WiFi was pretty good.
Price of a campsite has gone to $36 plus entry fee of $10. Will not pay $46 for a state park campsite with electric only. NUTS!
