This park was very close to the entrance to the RMNP and had great views. There was a bit of elaboration on their website as to exactly what the campground offered. "Perks Coffee Bar" was just expensive cups of coffee you added your own sugar/creamer to, the ice cream and snack shoppe were donuts and a chest freezer with ice cream sandwiches etc. We spent a week there and hoped to sit in the hot tub at least one night due to the walking/hiking we were planning to do, but the hot tub was not functioning and had not been functioning for a while (and was never repaired during our week long stay). The kids enjoyed the mini-golf, small arcade and pool. We are accustomed to space in between our sites and this campground offered no space and no grass. We traveled with another family and when they opened their slide out and we opened our awning we were touching each other. The campsites are gravel and extremely tight, NO campfires, (except in the tent sites), only reason I can figure is because there would be a domino effect if one camper caught fire. I would not recommend this campground if you don't want to know your neighbors well and had planned on spending any time at the campsite, it's basically a place to sleep at night. There is a $2 a day cable charge and also a $2 per person charge if you have more than 2 people in your camper. We spent over $400 for 8 nights. We did find the staff to be friendly and helpful. We camped at Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a weekend at this campsite and were pleasantly surprised. The restrooms left something to be desired but other than that we really enjoyed the campground. We were in a circular campsite with plenty of space, the pool was nice and the staff was helpful. You are within walking distance to the Park and if you didn't feel like making the walk they have a shuttle that takes you in and out of the Park. We are planning another outing to this campground next summer with some friends. We camped at Adventureland Campground in a Travel Trailer.
