Excellent campground for an overnight stop or short stay. Easy after hours check-in, just stop at office, fill out short registration envelope, add payment, and deposit in lock box. Site number not needed so no need to pick out your site before registering. Just pick out an empty one after you register. No need to be picky as all are easy to navigate, pull-thru sites of adequate size and spacing for most RVs, level, & full hook-up. Campground is far enough from the interstate to dampen road noise but close enough for convenience. Nice owner/operator lives adjacent. Only con is that there are no trees so would be hot in the summer but even this shouldn't be a problem if all you want is an overnight stop.

Large gravel sites with ample gravel lounge area including picnic table, fire ring, grill, and lantern holder. Lots of mature shade trees. Our site was one of the few hilltop sites with little view of the lake but most others are adjacent to the lake shore. Good separation between sites. Restrooms are clean and functional. In other words, a typically excellent Corps of Engineers campground at an affordable price.

Stopped for one night on a holiday weekend and got one of the last few sites which happened to be full hookup. Sites are quite close to the neighbors with some trees but no underbrush so no privacy. Gravel site was level and our particular site was shorter than most but adequate for our rig. Staff was very friendly and helpful. And of course the bunnies were really cute!

Nice public campground where many sites have an excellent view of the bay. Some sites separated by shrubbery but most open to each other. Reasonably level. Boat launch ramp at campground entrance.

I liked the fact that campground fees are used to support this historic 600+ acre farm. Campers can hike along the shoreline and visit the garden and livestock (cows and sheep). The office staff very friendly and helpful. Dump station, trash bin, & recycle bins are behind the office. The only reason I didn't rate the campground a 10 is because the levelness of the sites varies. But this won't stop me from coming back! Note that their sites have been renumbered but there's a cross-reference on their website.

The campground is next to a small lake on the side of the mountain. There is a small trading post and a host at the campground but you must check in at the visitor center at the top of the mountain during office hours. Visitor center is about a mile up a steep hill from the campground so forget walking or biking there. Sign at visitor center says if you arrive after hours pick out a site and register in the morning. Gravel sites on one-way paved loops. Pretty setting, friendly service, and adequate facilities. Enjoyed the views from the ridgetop Pine Mtn Rd and the Pine Mtn Trail. Will return another time to explore the nearby Little White House at Warm Springs.

The official name of this campground is Indian Paintbrush. Stayed 5 nights while attending training nearby. While I was in a small rig, I noted the sites are big enough for even the largest rigs. It is in a desert type environment so only a few trees and no privacy between sites but sites are well spaced. Electric at each site and water available at spigots in several locations. Clean, functional dump station. During the day one enters/exits via the Morrison Rd (Hwy 8) park entrance nearest the Hwy 470 interchange. At night one enter/exits directly from/to Hwy 470 northbound via W Hampden Ave. Campground is in the corner of the city park near two highways so some road noise but otherwise in a lovely park environment with hiking/biking/equestrian trails and boating/swimming on several lakes. Note that this park contains the flood storage area for a multi-purpose dam that reduces flooding in Denver areas along Bear and Turkey Creeks downstream. Therefore, parts of the park may be inundated at times. I was unable to determine if the campground lies within the potential flood storage pool but it is on higher ground at the opposite end of the park from the Bear Creek Dam and could be evacuated via W Hampden Ave if needed. I would definitely return to this campground if in the area. Online reservation was easy.

We stayed in the West Campground. Long, full-hookup, pull-through sites. Some fairly level, others unlevel. All campground roads and sites are sparsely graveled; facility roads are in better shape. Beautiful views from the West Campground. Took a peak at the nearby East Campground and much of it is just a large open area. The East Campground does have restrooms though while there are no restrooms in the West Campground. There is a guardhouse at facility entrance that is manned 24/7. Staff there are very friendly and helpful.

Easy access from I-40. Sits back behind car dealership and other businesses. Long level gravel sites. Some road noise but not too bad. Walmart and a few small stores and fast food restaurants on other side of interchange.

Date of Stay:

Arrived late at night and had easy time locating our envelope and finding our 2 Premier Cabins. We had several youths and needed the 2 cabins. Premier Cabins sleep 6. They were clean and well equipped. Lofts are better suited for youth. Grills are a bit small, but overall good Cabins. Cabins are located on hillside and campsites down the hill on leveler ground. Check in Saturday morning was painless and lady was very friendly. We would do this again.

Road in although paved is very rough. Stayed in campground section on the lake. Sites are medium size, suitable for modest size rigs. Roads are wide. Trees leaning over road that show signs of being hit before were being removed. Sites along lake are sandy and relatively open; interior sites are shady and covered in pine needles. Lots of beach area. Hope to go back!

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate includes $8 non MI resident fee. This large campground would likely be noisy during peak season, but was very quiet at this offseason time. Restrooms/showers are not yet open. Only a few sites on water but there is a large sandy area for beach games. Has limited waterfront access. Could have a boat at some sites. Has a very nice view across large lake.

Date of Stay:

Most sites at this park are occupied by long term residents. Only a few sites in the older section are available for transients, and most of those most suitable to small rigs. Management is friendly and park is neat and clean. It's several miles from the interstate.

Date of Stay:

Park is convenient to I-25 without being right on it. It is on the first road over along the interstate but on the far side with large building businesses between that help block the noise. Sites were gravel and the one we were put in required moderate leveling but doable. Bathrooms and showers were quite clean but several stalls on both the ladies and men's sides were out of service. Perhaps since it's the off-season they are waiting to call the plumber? The check-in staff were friendly but we were disappointed to hear that there would be no free pancakes as this was closed for the holidays. Would definitely consider staying here again if in the area.

The Oasis RV Resort is very convenient to I-40 without being right on it. After exiting the interstate on Arnot Rd (Exit 60), turn to the south, go past the Love's, and the Resort will be a few hundred feet down the road on the left. The Resort has a solid wall around it blocking the yellow lights so if you arrive after dark (as we did) at first it looks like there is nothing down this dark road but it's there! Check-in was easy with their friendly staff. Our site was indeed level and the private bath/showers were clean and well heated. There is a lot of pavement and no trees so I imagine that the Resort could be hot and crowded in the summer but it was fine for our winter stopover.
