Rifle Falls State Park, Rifle, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Wow! Rifle Falls State Park is a quick 10 minutes north of Rifle Gap SP. Absolutely worth it! Amazingly scenic with lush vegetation! With only 15 rv sites, this is the smallest SP we've been to, but it is the most beautiful without a doubt! Immaculately kept and very clean. Most sites are long pull-throughs, but our site, #003 was a back-in listed for 29 feet and under. Not to worry, it is actually MUCH longer than the site advertises. My 30 ft trailer AND truck fit easily with room to spare! Electrical only, but there are quite a few water spigots scattered around. (One is right next to site #003!) Most sites like ours are mostly shaded, but there are a couple that are more open and a few heavily shaded. Our site was moderately level, needed a few leggo blocks. The sites on the east side of the road all back to a beautiful creek! We heard that the Falls can get very busy on the weekends, but they have a policy of "one in, one out" when the falls parking lot is full. The lot only has about 20 parking spaces, so traffic is not too bad. No cell service whatsoever. The nearest place we found with service is back at Rifle Gap. There is no dump station at Rifle Falls, but there is a big one at Rifle Gap. Just tell them you camped at the falls. Very dog-friendly park! No camp store, but plenty of stores in Rifle about 20 minutes away. Simply stunning. We will be back! We camped at Rifle Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop, Rifle, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Rifle Gap State Park / reservoir is approximately 15 minutes north of the town of Rifle, Colorado. The Lakeview Loop is the only FHU loop at the campground and appears to be the newest, built within the last 10 years or so. Main interior roads are well paved as is the Lakeview Loop. The other, older loops, are gravel roads with electric or no hookups. A large variety to choose from! Our site, #014, was VERY level and has a good view of the reservoir. Asphalt road with a concrete pad and gravel patio space much in the fashion of other state parks. No issues with electric, sewer or water. Some previous posts complained of low water pressure when the campground is full, but we had no issues whatsoever! The main draw of the campground is the reservoir. Rifle Gap reservoir is an irrigation reservoir and water level was down 28 feet during our stay. The long, narrow reservoir is a great place for water skiing and boat traffic was very low despite the weekend. Boat ramps were long and wide, but there is no marina or store. Cell service was spotty, but we did have 4g with T-Mobile at our site. It did get very hot during our stay (102+) with some wind at night. Not much in the way of trees anywhere. Camp hosts were wonderful and friendly! We will be back! We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Travel Trailer.

The main draw is of course the reservoir and water activities. But Glenwood Springs is only 30 minutes away! The town of Rifle is small, with only a few touristy shops. here is a City Market and Walmart for supplies. A MUST SEE is Rifle Falls just 10 minutes north of Rifle Gap! Amazing waterfalls and campground! (See our review)

Eagle Campground at Carter Lake, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

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.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

For us, Chatfield is a close destination and we regularly use it for quick weekend camping. Our particular site, #040, was very nice with lots of room! Chatfield is undergoing a makeover for the next 3 years (approx.) so some of the activities will be disrupted. The West entrance to the park has limited access and is used for the North boat ramp and off-leash dog area only. This is due to the access road being diverted. Campers must use the south "Plum Creek" entrance off Roxborough Road. Best route is Santa Fe to Titan Rd. Google it. The Water Reallocation Project will raise the reservoir by approx. 12 feet. Some wetlands areas will be lost. Main Marina will be moved to the east cove probably within 18 months. We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mueller State Park, Divide, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

One of our absolute favorite state parks! It seems there really isn't a bad spot in the campground although some are smaller than others, so check your site length! Our site this time was #125. Great site and although listed as a 25 foot site, I was able to get my 29ft tt in with little effort. Also had room for my truck. Site was a tad unlevel side-to-side, but levelers fixed that. This particular site has no cell service whatsoever, darn it. This site is right next to a water spigot making it convenient to top off. It is also near a vault toilet, but that was not an issue. Additional parking was nearby. We camped at Mueller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Boyd Lake State Park, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We have been to Boyd Lake several times. The last time we were here was 2016 and not much has changed. Still a good campground for the money and the proximity to the lake for boating is great! Not much to add as previously stated. Out site was level, good power and clean. We do use our patio mat to keep the gravel out as the sites are asphalt with gravel.

Overall Rating:

We camp here about every other year and it never disappoints! Great scenery, (fairly) level sites, quiet and clean! Our site #53 is a very long pull-through on a corner with no neighbors around. Not full hookups, but steady 30a power with no issues. Shower house fairly close and clean. Lots of dog-friendly hiking trails nearby! We will be back!

Eagle Campground at Carter Lake, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

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! We camped at Eagle Campground at Carter Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $90.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed or week-long stay here! An absolutely HUGE resort. Pros and cons to being so big. Lots to do at the resort, but lots of people here too! Our site #602 was away from the main area, so it was a little quieter. Sites are spaced fairly close together, but still enough room for awnings, etc. Huge variety of sites to pick from, and I recommend calling the resort to make reservations so you can pick the site or least the area you want to camp. (Locking in a site costs an additional $10) Lots of neat specialty stores on site, but beware you will pay higher resort prices for the same things you can find in Keystone. 2 big pools with hot tubs. One pool is "adults only" after 8pm. A nice touch! Good restaurant and an outdoor bar! If you can, reserve a Chuckwagon Dinner/Show through The Stables. Was a ton of fun!

Cheyenne Mountain State Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of our favorite parks to stay at! Great place to stay as a base of operations for seeing the sights such as the zoo or 7 Falls. Hookups worked well except for lower than normal water pressure. It was something the entire park was experiencing, not just our site. Usually have good water. Our site #044 was one of the few pull-throughs in the campground. There is a grade at the end of the site that made hooking up the trailer sway bars more difficult, but manageable.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Overall Rating:

*This review is for the Arapahoe Group Site* This is our second stay at the Arapahoe Group Site, so don't be shocked at the price compared to individual camp sites! We had a great stay with our camping group from work! We had 6 RVs and 2 tents with a total of about 32 people camping. The site is spacious with plenty of room for everybody and their dogs! There are 6 30/50 amp power pedestals for the RVs, with 3 water spigots for shared water use. No individual sewer, but a dump station is nearby. This site has a covered pavilion with a private bathroom and ample sink area for food prep. Hot/cold water and electrical outlets are very handy! A lot of tables are included and a HUGE fire pit! The grounds are a grass/dirt mix, so it can get muddy when it rains. Great access to the reservoir and picnic areas. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Because we are locals to the area, we frequent Chatfield quite a bit. Although we didn't stay at Chatfield last year, this year we used it for our first shake-down trip. We had site #10 in A Loop this time. A Loop is a favorite because it is the oldest and the trees are now mature providing some shade depending on site selected. The views on the east side of the loop are great and the marina is within walking distance. Most sites in A Loop are full hookup and everything worked well. Site was level and clean. Only thing I noticed was that the water hookup ran dirty when first setting up and again when leaving. No real concern as we always use a filter, but worth noting. We will be back!

Tips for other Campers:

The reservoir is the major draw for this park, especially in the summertime. I can get crowded out on the water and sometimes the rangers implement a "One boat off, one boat on" rule. Best to launch early and stake out a spot on the beach before it gets busy!

This is our second stay at Elk Creek. We had a wonderful week stay here! Not much to add that hasn't already been said! The absolute best campground in the area.
We reserved what (in our opinion!) is the best site in the lot, #011, one year in advance, during our first stay actually! This site is a FHU that backs in a small meadow. It's like having a big backyard! Trees abound and it has a wonderful feel to it.

Boyd Lake State Park, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We have been coming to Boyd for a lot of years and always have had a great experience. The lake is wonderful for boating and lots of things to do.

Having said that, our trip this time was pretty good with a couple of exceptions.
We had reserved a site nearly 6 months ago (you MUST reserve early to get a weekend spot here in Colorado!) but due to work, we could not spend the first night, but opted to arrive early the next morning. We were surprised to see a tent camper in our reserved spot when we arrived! The camp hosts were not helpful and I had to call the Park Rangers. Turns out the camper was camping illegally and was issued a ticket by the Rangers and kicked out of the park. Never had that one happen before! Other than that, not a bad stay.

The Park is starting to show it's age and could use some updating, but is still pretty good. Good electricity and water spigots are scattered around. Lots of room at the dump station! Shower house was not clean, but was usable. (Lots of cobwebs).

Overall a good park, but upkeep was lacking. This I will pin directly on the camp hosts. The hosts only job appeared to be... well... camping and putting tags on the reservation markers. No campsite upkeep or cleaning was seen during our 4 day stay. It was disappointing because we love seeing how other hosts in other CO state parks maintain their sites with pride. No so much here. Too bad. I know it's dependent on the particular group of hosts and usually they are pretty good. No this time and it showed.

Having said that, we WILL be back next year! We camped at Boyd Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Always a favorite! We spent Memorial Day weekend with two other families in Abilene sites #007, #008 (ours) and #009. Absolute great location! Long pull-through sites with enough extra to park you boat. Utilities worked great!

We come here at least twice a year and always have had a great time!

The main draw for the park is the reservoir and the water conditions were good for the busy weekend. A LOT of people on the beaches! The only complaint we had was a very large group set up on the beach next to us with loud amplified music. We just packed up our stuff in the boat and headed to a secluded spot farther up the beach! Lots of beach to choose from! We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
