Date of Stay: June, 2013
This CG is now a Jellystone Park campground. Clean facilities and well laid out. Close proximity to Montrose. The hosts went out of their way to include our children in camp activities (hay rides, nature walks, crafts, etc. Very nice people for sure. Clean laundry facilities, showers, and bathrooms. Game room was more my speed- pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard (not a bunch of video games) kept the kids busy. The pull through sites are easy to get in and out of. Most of the trees are fairly young and will take a few years to provide large amounts of shade. Most of the sites are wide open which was ok. It seems like new ownership and they are working hard (and doing a good job) of keeping the place up. Nice clean playground with picnic areas. Unfortunately a fire ban was in effect so no campfires, but they do have community set ups for it. My only gripe was the pool water temp. I presume it was early enough in the season and they had not gotten the system up and running at full speed. Water temps were 68-69*F. Rather chilly by my standards, but the kids still put up with it. Plenty of things to see in the surrounding mountains, kept us busy for a week. Would come here again.

Clean park with many things to keep you busy. Great for the kids: large playground, horseshoe pit, game room, etc. Clean bathrooms and pool. Staff very friendly and campsite just outside of Estes Park. Stayed here twice this summer and will go back next year. Cabins are available if you don't have an RV. Liked this place due to cleanliness and close proximity to Denver (easy drive).

Very clean and plenty of things to do. Close to the Royal Gorge and Canon City. Read several of the reviews of the hosts being rude but did not have that experience. Did see them get angry at other people, but that was for not following the rules (diving in a shallow pool). If you feel the need to speed though the campground or disregard the safety rules clearly posted at the pool, you should probably stay somewhere else as you will get put in your place. As mentioned before, they strictly enforced 5mph speed limit; keeps the kids safe and the dust down. Will camp there again.

Clean open space with plenty of shade. No services other than a hand operated water pump on top of the hill. Friendly park rangers and QUIET! Would go to again.
