Our site was one of the nicest that we have ever had anywhere. We were in the small loop next to the outlet that has sites 12 thru 20. These sites are all on concrete pads and have 50 amp outlets. Our pad was at least 80 feet deep and double wide. The fire ring was integrated into the pad. You could park an 18 wheeler on the site. There is no bathhouse in this loop, but one is available nearby in the large parking lot. Verizon cell, broadband and OTA TV were very good. This loop has some of the nicest sites that we have seen at a COE CG.

CASH only at this Omaha City run CG. Tough call on rating this place. It was a dust bowl the day we arrived. Our toad had a layer of dust so thick we could not see out of the windows. I had to dump a bucket of water on the windshield before unhooking it. That was just from the drive in and locating a site. Lots of fast moving traffic within the CG keeps it dusty. After an afternoon of rain, things got much better. Sites are either RV sites or tent sites. The RV sites have red topped number posts, the white topped posts are tent sites. Sites vary from level to very sloped, the closer to the water the more level they are. These water sites come with plenty of geese droppings included. The site we had was filthy and the grass around it was long overdue for mowing. That was true of most of the sites. I also checked the men's bathhouse and it was pretty disgusting. Glad we did not need to use them. Being a FCFS CG, people start coming in during the week to pick their site. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and lots of sites had trailers on them that had been left earlier in the day. 30 amp electric was good for our four day stay. Water is available on the way in at the dump station and in various locations within the CG loops. The price and location here add to the value. The locals seem happy with things as they are. It is a nice cheap CG close to the city. But they really do need someone here to keep an eye on things. There is no excuse for people to come in and leaving the sites in such a mess. Hundreds of cigarette butt's littered the ground, beer bottle caps, etc. But the place works ok for a pit stop along I-80 in the Omaha area.

We paid the Passport rate of $18 for a 50 amp FHU site. We agree with the review that recommends coming down Colorado and parking on the street, it makes getting into the site easier. All hookups worked great. We did several loads of laundry while here and were happy with the machines on the south side of the bath house. Our Verizon broadband was good. The TV is a funny setup, but we did get stations when we were expecting nothing over the air. Overall a very good value and a nice stopping point off of I-70.

Casey's RV Hide-A-Way's street address is 4189 Highway 86, Elizabeth, CO 80107. If coming from the west, you will pass thru the town and the last traffic signal will be Hwy 86 and CR 17. The turn into the CG will be your second left, the first left is the day use section of Casey's Park. The entrance is paved for a few feet in, but due to fairly deep erosion it is a tight turn. The dump station is before you reach the CG loop, a somewhat long narrow tear shaped loop. Large rigs might have trouble making the full loop as it is a pretty tight turn back into the loop. Odd numbered sites on on the outside of the loop and the even numbered sites are in the loop. The electric and water are both good and up to date. This CG is in a rustic setting (you won't see or hear any mowers around here) and works for a few nights. Most units cannot dump and get back into the CG loop without leaving the Park or backing back in. Cell and TV were both good.

High marks for value. We paid the Passport America rate and had a nice level 50 amp full hook up, pull thru with Wi-Fi. Our Verizon cell and broadband were both excellent and TV via batwing was also very good. The wi-fi was very fast, since our stay here 3 years ago, they have upgraded the wi-fi and added repeaters to eliminate dead spots. The electric was good, the water so no good. As reviewed before make sure you use a filter or come in with enough in your tank. This RV park is what RVers need more of, a decent place at a reasonable price to spend a night or several at. They also have good weekly and monthly rates. They have completed the pool work since our last stay and it looks very nice. The new owners are super and we saw signs of improvement ongoing here. Lots of new picnic tables, many of the sewer connections have been set in concrete, young trees planted and other improvements. It is nice to see a place that puts money back into their business. We would gladly come back here.

High marks for value, we paid the cash price of $33.40 for 2 nights using Passport America. Power was fine, we did not need AC so we took a 30 amp, FHU, grass, pull thru site with very good wi-fi. Sewer connection was a bit uphill, but we have seen far worse. Just needed to empty the sewer hose before disconnecting it. This place is a bit rough around the edges, but everything works and the people here are nice. The hookups are side by side on a lot of sites. But we took the one right next to the entrance and had an empty field on our curbside. Overall a nice place to spend a night or two.

We paid $100.70 for a 3 night stay, 1 night with Passport America and 2 with Good Sam. We had a level, gravel pull thru site with 50 amp FHU's, cable and wi-fi. The cable was pretty much your basic lineup with a half way decent picture, not HD. This park made a nice base for visiting Mesa Verde NP.

Date of Stay:

Our second stay here, 15 nights this time. A great quiet location with very good utilities. As mentioned, the cable is a bit fuzzy but it is a very good lineup with HBO included. We had a nice shaded back in site on a concrete slab and did not need AC for most of our August stay. People here get a solid 10. The value is a bit off as they have gone up quite a bit since our first stay. Overall a great place to spend some time.

Date of Stay:

We came in on a Sunday afternoon in early August and had no problems finding an open site in Loop C. Most sites are fairly level, but some do have a bit of grade. Most of the double sites were taken by tent campers, but we had no problems with a single wide site. No over-the-air TV or cell phone reception at this NP. Nearest place for limited supplies is Torrey, about 10 miles west. Forget going east for anything. The campground hosts were right on top of things here. Just what we normally expect in a NPS campground. Deer are all over here, we had six mostly bucks show up one afternoon. We would come back if in the area. The only negative would be the very limited generator hours. 8 to 10 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening. It gets light at about 6, so waiting until 8 makes for a later start to the day.

Good value about sums it up at $20 a night after taxes added. We had a 50 amp full hookup somewhat level pull-through; our front left corner was pulled right up to a small bushy tree. When we called, we had asked about getting one of the bigger sites on the top level and were told they fill fast at the beginning of the season and then stay that way. He said that they have 'opened up' some of the sites on the lower level, but these sites are still tight as can be and are 15' x 55'. Some of these sites have a rail fence on between them making them extra tight. We were OK the three nights we had empty sites on both sides of us. But one night we had someone pull into the site on our curbside making things really tight. We could not walk around our RV without going into another site. It's that tight. They do have some wonderful 30 amp and water sites behind the office that nobody seemed to use. These sites are cheaper at $14.95 a night. You could have all the room you need in these sites, so if you don't have a 50 amp RV, it would be well worth checking out these sites. OTA TV was very good, the Wi-Fi was mostly very good. As long as you know what to expect, this place works as a base for visiting the local NPs.

We paid $25 plus 11% tax for a large level pull-through with 50 amp full hookups. Most sites came with a pile or two of dog crap at no extra charge. If you look up 'the middle of nowhere', this is it. The review about 47 over-the-air stations was that poster's idea of a joke. No OTA TV reception here at all. Verizon cell and broadband both on extended 3G networks. The broadband varied with the time of day, OK early (very) AM and not usable at all in the PM. This is a 24 hour establishment with a lot of very early traffic. There are several mobile home style trailers here and the people who live in them just drive through any empty site. So we had traffic passing through the empty site next to us. A Sysco food delivery truck towing tandem came in before 6 AM with his delivery in the rear trailer. Lots of shuffling around for that. There really are no other options around if you have a decent RV.

Good Sam discount, lower marks due to high cost for this part of NV. Overall a very nice stopping point. We had a nice long and level 50 amp full hookup with cable & Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was mostly very good during our two day stay. Interesting cable lineup, I found network stations out of Vegas, Reno and Salt Lake City. So no matter which way your headed you can see what's going on. Very friendly check-in. The laundry was small, 2 of each, $1.50 for washing and $1.00 to dry. The dryers looked new and all machines worked great. The only negative was when they just shut the power off to our row to fix a problem at a site. It was during the dinner hour, fortunately we had just finished ours. No warning at all, there were only 3 or 4 sites occupied and it would have taken less than 5 minutes to notify us. Instead, we are checking for tripped breakers and looking for a problem that was not there. A complete lack of common courtesy by the maintenance staff.

We stopped for two days and it was like being in hell it was so hot. There are NO 50 amp outlets here and we could not run both ACs on 30 amps. The electric boxes are locked with a padlock. So the RV turned into a sauna while we were checking in. The girl who checked us in forgot to come out and unlock the electric for us and we had to go back in to get her to come out. Which she did, only she unlocked the electric box and water on our curb side we moved to. We could reach, but it was more time in the blazing sun making the water and electric connections on the wrong side. I was in the process of moving the coach as the first site we had chosen was at the US-50 end of the middle row. Cars and trucks would come flying into the RV area from the side street passing within a couple of feet of us and while driving through empty RV sites. The side street next to the RV sites becomes one way from here to US-50. So lots of traffic cuts thru this "RV Park" to bypass the one way portion. The first row closest to the motel had what appeared to be 3 permanents in it taking all of the east facing sites. The other open sites in that row all faced west. The Wi-Fi was extremely slow from the RV sites. Over-the-air TV was limited to a couple of PBS type stations, no networks. Verizon cell and broadband were both good. OK for a one night stay here, but that is it.

As reviewed before, this is a great campground with large mostly level sites with 50 amp electric and water. We had no trouble finding a site in late July mid-week, but did end up with a lot of sun late in the day. The turn off is 5.5 miles down from CA 36. After making the turn off of 89, the first left is the dump station which also has potable water available, Legacy Campground is the second left. If you are in a big rig you really don't want to go any further down the road unless you have been there before. We took our toad through the North Campground and it is tight, we did not see one site that would work for a large motor home. Going further down there did not appear to be any place to turn a large rig around. Legacy Campground has no over-the-air TV reception and no Internet access with Verizon. We did have marginal cell service coming through as 1X.

Date of Stay:

Good value with Senior pass. We had a fairly tight pull-through and were barely able to keep our tires on the asphalt. The campground is mostly level, but no effort was made to level out the sites. So they do have some slope to them, but we had no problem getting level. The 50 amp electric was good, we did not use water. No dump station is available here. The bathrooms had a code to access them. The host who we never saw has the code for them. Very quiet and dark at night. Lots of empty spots when we arrived mid-week. Over-the-air TV was OK, we did pick up a few stations.
