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. We camped at Boyd Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The lake is the big draw for this place! Good boat ramp access and there is a separate ramp area for PWCs only. Kinda nice feature!

Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $26.00
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, 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! We camped at Mount Rushmore KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $132.00
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!

Elk Creek Campground, Grand Lake, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

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.
We will be back! We camped at Elk Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you like looking at wildlife, take a drive around sunset just west of the campground. We usually saw deer, moose and even a fox!

Additionally there is a fantastic off-leash dog area just up the road!

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.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

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.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We have camped several times here and it is always a fun place to go! This year, we were in A Loop, site #008, our favorite. Great views of the lake and within walking distance to the marina. FHU worked great and site was very level. Water pressure was a bit low, but no problems. This was the first year we brought our boat along and initially we parked the boat and tow vehicle at the marina because we were not sure if it would fit at the site. The next day we tried it and it did fit! Even with the 30ft trailer and truck, the 18ft Bayliner and SUV tow vehicle fit within the site.
Nice and close to home, we will be back! We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Always a favorite! Great base camp for exploring the area such as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Seven Falls. We were in site #42.

Elk Creek Campground, Grand Lake, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here! The staff is outstanding! There is a wide variety of sites here, but all have fantastic views! Out site, RV#1 was very level and had full hookups. (Not all sites are FHU). We did have wifi, but it was because we were close to the office. We did have strong AT&T signal. The sites in back are more rustic and forested. The sites in the middle surround a small forested meadow and, in my opinion, are the best sites in the campground. Most sites will accommodate good sized rv's, our 30ft trailer was easy to navigate around. Moose are a common sight at dusk in and around the park. The big draw to the area is the lakes. There are several ramps within 5 minutes of the campground and the campground has ample overflow parking for boats and stuff. This is a very dog-friendly campground and our 2 labs had as much fun as we did! There is an off-leash area 5 minutes away, a must do! The only negative notes is a lack of pool and that the roads are packed dirt. Afternoon rains are common, and it can get a bit sloppy. We will definitely be back next year!

We love coming here every year, a nice getaway from Denver! We had site #02, possibly one of the best in the campground, nice mature trees and green grass! Although it was a busy weekend, it was nice and quiet during the evening. The big draw here is the lake. With Chatfield closed due to flooding, Cherry Creek was a zoo. Boyd was busy but not at capacity. Great fun! We will be back! We camped at Boyd Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A bit rainy and soggy for the Memorial Day Weekend, but still a fun place! The newer showerhouse in the Sandpiper campground is better than the one in Pelican, but still not bad. Sites were fairly level and electric worked good. The lake is a popular place for watersports and when the sun came out the roads dried up nicely and everyone hit the beach. Lake was VERY full, so not much beach area to use. Be aware that storms can come up quickly in this area! We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
