There are many sites here with amazing, beautiful views not only of the lake, but also of the surrounding mesas and mountains. It was completely quiet during our Sunday-Friday stay near the end of the season. The restrooms were clean, but I wasn't a fan of the shower - the water was reasonably warm, but the shower head added so much air to the spray that it was more like having a cold, windy mist blown on you. The airflow from the head even caused the shower curtain to swing way out. At least there was an overhead heat lamp in the changing area. I actually stepped out of the shower to warm up under it a couple times. Otherwise this is a great place to camp. Another reviewer commented on noise from pumps (just north of the Buffalo Grove bathrooms). I actually thought it was insects the first couple nights, so it's not an offensive sound at all. You'll only hear when it outdoors on a calm night. There is a very strong Verizon 4G signal here. Note the Buffalo Grove loop has 50-amp and water at each site. This loop has the best views if you want electric. The Juniper loop has electric but the water spigots are not site-specific and can be up to 100 ft from a site. Elk Run and Ringtail Cat have no electricity. Ringtail Cat sites are the closest to the lake.

This is a big RV park. It's far enough off the interstate that you can't hear any road noise. The pull-thru sites are very long and spacious. It's super easy to navigate a big rig through this park. Lots of huge, nice rigs here. Our 32' travel trailer looked small in relation to everything else. :) The dog run is large but the entrance gate area was very muddy during our stay. We enjoyed the use of the large hot tub one cool evening. There were some areas of the roads in the park in need of repair, but the problems were avoidable while towing. The wifi was essentially useless but our Verizon signal was strong.

We were assigned a spacious pull-thru site. It was very long with above-average spacing between the units. The park itself was exceptionally quiet during our 2-night stay. Staff was very friendly and the bathrooms were very clean. The only reasons I didn't give it a 10 is the highway noise is fairly noticeable and the dog run fences are a bit short for large dogs (ours could jump over easily if they wanted to). I'm just being nitpicky, though. :) Overall it's a great place.

This is an exceptionally nice park. It's obvious the owners take a lot of pride in it. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The park is nicely wooded, shady, and grassy. It's on a river and backs right up to the Cumbres & Toltec narrow-gauge steam locomotive bridge across the river. Almost every site has some view of the train. Twice a day folks from the park gather and wave as the train goes by. We found the sites to be spacious. The Wi-Fi service is one of the better we've encountered. There are outdoor hotspots throughout the park. Given that there are 100 sites here, it functions quite well. (You'd never guess there are that many sites - the layout is attractively broken up) Verizon 4G is nearly full-strength.

After checking in, we had to ask around to have both an ATV and car moved because it would not have been possible to maneuver in to our site. The whole park is a muddy mess when it rains, but then again so is most of Silverton. What seemed to be the owners and their friends were being rather loud outside the main building near our site until about 11 PM. Short-term sites are very close together with slideouts practically touching. Our site was sloped up at the truck end which made detaching and attaching our weight distribution bars almost impossible due to the angle. Wi-Fi crashed and disappeared during the one time I used it. I probably wouldn't stay here again. On the bright side, the staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed 2 nights here. It's a nice, quiet park. We lucked out and got a spot at the end of a row, so we had a fire pit and grass. Most sites did not have fire pits due to the proximity of the trailers. Lots of amenities including a pool and hot tubs. We had a good Verizon signal here. We were in the area up front that has some good trees. There is another area further back with no trees.

We stayed for one night to break up the drive home. The campground is very quiet and serene. Host was very friendly. We were asked to limit our water usage to 5 gallons due to a water main break. We appear to have reserved the one pull-thru site with a somewhat steep front-to-back slope (I used 6 Lynx blocks to keep the tongue jack from extending too far). Great views across the endless landscape. As someone else mentioned, you can see the interstate and trains but cannot hear them at all. Despite the bright line-of-sight lights from Winslow, the night sky is very dark. Only a handful of sites have 50 amps, so do your homework if you require 50. We had good Verizon coverage and many over-the-air TV stations available.

We loved this place and would return frequently if it weren't just a little too far from home for us. We stayed 7 nights. 50-amp service and water worked great. Verizon coverage is great. There are good views from nearly every site and the hosts did a great job of keeping the place clean. Our site was level. Some of the pull-thrus are a little close to each other, but most sites are spacious. The park is just outside of town and there is a dog park just a few minutes from the campground (next to the ballpark you pass on the way in). The hiking trails are nice and the fishing lagoons were very peaceful. The only reason I gave this a 9 rather than 10 is because the dump site is so far from the campground (approx 1.5 miles round trip). I made 4 trips total with a 15-gallon tote and it took some time!

We've used this park several times for short stays while in transit. It's a simple, quiet, no-frills gravel park. Sites are relatively wide and some have trees. It would have been better if they had angled the sites so everyone can have a view of the bluffs rather than a view of the trailer next to them. There are metal fire pits in some but not all sites, but they are lightweight and you can just grab one from another site as the residents in those sites have always said it's fine if we take it. We always use our own shower (that's the point of having a trailer, right?), but I peeked into the bath house and the showers were clean but in desperate need of remodeling (the park is for sale). Owners/employees are always friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is very good. There is a tranquil pond with ducks and frogs along the front end of the sites that makes for a nice evening stroll.

Beautiful, quiet, clean, well-maintained campground. Great views are everywhere. There are electric hookups at some sites (A and B loops), but no water or sewer at any sites. Dump station has potable water. Bathrooms have dishwashing sinks, so it's pretty easy to conserve your trailer's water for just showers and hand washing. We made it our whole six nights on one fill of our 35-gallon fresh water tank by using the park's dishwashing sink and jugs of water for flushing our toilet.

Oh man, what a beautiful campground! Colorado obviously takes their state parks very seriously. Most sites were quite spacious and have great views of the mountain and/or the town. The entire park is very clean and well staffed. Maybe we got lucky, but it was also very quiet. We can't wait to come back here again someday.

This is a bare-bones RV park. It is minimally maintained and weedy. The roads had some rutted areas, and the Wi-Fi was absolutely useless. The Wi-Fi worked for a few minutes here and there and was incredibly slow when it did work. It was quiet and sparsely populated when we arrived on a Thursday, but Friday night when the locals started coming in the place filled up with everyone's music, barking dogs, and screaming kids and continued as such for the entire weekend. Mary's Lake is just across the highway, but you can't see it from the campground. There is a somewhat periodic, somewhat random whooshing sound you'll hear all night from water gushing into the lake from a pipe. It's very quiet, but just loud enough to get into your head just as you're about to fall asleep. The one good thing is the rangers did a good job of keeping things quiet after-hours. I wouldn't stay here again.

This is probably the best park we've stayed in. It lies in a wooded area and feels more like camping than being in an RV park. Our spot was a little tricky to back into due to some trees, but ours was the anomaly in our loop. The other spots looked easy to get into. It was clean and well-maintained, the staff is friendly, and the residents (all refugees from Texas who come here every summer) were friendly as well. The Wi-Fi was by far the best we've ever encountered. Strong signals and very fast.

Date of Stay:

Super clean and quiet. Spacious sites with grass and trees. Owners are extremely friendly. Park seemed to be mostly occupied by seasonal/full-timers. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We had a gorgeous end site right on the river, so close that we had to pull forward a foot after parking to be able to walk behind the trailer without falling into the water. Overall the park was beautiful but there was a lot of variation in the appeal of the various sites. We got a good one. The Wi-Fi was strong and the employees were very friendly. Our only complaint was the horrid sulfur water from the hookup. It smelled awful. We assume it was well water (there are sulfur springs in the area). The water in the bathrooms was fine, however. Would rate higher if it weren't for the stinky water.
