Date of Stay:

Used as an overnight travelling I75. Easy access to and in the park with our extra large 40' Big Rig RV. Just off the interstate but quiet at night. Clean and very well-kept. Friendly staff. Very fast Verizon and AT&T LTE signal. We would certainly return.

Date of Stay:

Stayed as an overnight while traveling in the off season. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large sized 40'+ big rig RV. Quiet at night and park looks very well kept. I thought the price was high for just an electric connection and concrete pad since water at the sites was turned off (but available at the office) but, during their regular season, looks like it would be a fair value given the amenities. Great AT&T and Verizon signal. Satellite signal available at most sites. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Very easy access to and in this well kept park with our extra large sized 40'+ big rig RV. Sites in back of park near I-24 have significant traffic noise but middle and front of park were much quieter. AT&T Internet reception fair but Verizon was very strong. Very friendly and helpful staff made our stay very pleasant. We would return.

Date of Stay:

Big Rig accessible but not particularly Big Rig friendly. Enquired about height when reserving (our Big Rig RV is 40'+ long and 13' 6" at its highest point), was told no problems, but found upon arrival a tree at entrance had low branches which scraped roof of RV. Sites are grass over sparse gravel and exiting requires driving through a grassy former farm pasture with an incline which was wet and left us very apprehensive. Charged $33 for a nights stay even though sign in the office advertised $30 per night. Verizon signal poor but AT&T LTE was very fast. Very friendly owner and everything was well-kept. Quiet at night. I thought it was slightly pricey for full hookups in a grassy field. I doubt we would return.

Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV. Great LTE service on both Verizon and AT&T. Close to I40 but highway noise non-intrusive. Wide concrete pad sites. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful views in all directions. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV although roads and sites are gravel and can be very rough in places. Great Verizon LTE service and good AT&T 4G service. Quiet at night. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would certainly return.

Date of Stay:

Excellent state park that is our first choice for a stay in the Colorado Springs area. Beautiful views in all directions. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV. Good Verizon LTE service but AT&T voice and data sporadic at best. Quiet at night. Only two issues keep this from being perfect; (1) pay showers ($1 for 4 min) and (2) it's booked full on weekends well in advance so it's tough to stay long enough to amortize the $10 reservation fee to lower the nightly rate. Our rate for two nights was $28 per night + $7 per day access / vehicle fee, and $10 reservation fee. We would certainly return.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects a week's stay. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV. Good Verizon LTE service but AT&T voice and data sporadic at best. Cable available only at the expensive premium sites and little chance of satellite signal if you have a fixed dish. Friendly and helpful staff. Park was full during our stay so advance reservations recommended. Best of the private RV park options in the area.

Easy access to and in the park with our extra large sized 40'+ Big Rig RV (although Hy36 can be daunting, take your time to and from Estes Park and you will be fine). Call for directions to bypass downtown Estes Park in a Big Rig RV. Pros: Closest park with hookups to the RMNP east entrance. Excellent AT&T and Verizon LTE cellular signal (parks east of Estes park have no cell service). Cons: Expensive. No amenities (pool / hot tub) open during our September stay. Sites and interior roads more dirt than gravel causing nonstop dust. I though this park was very overpriced but other options in the area provide no better value or better facilities.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV but negotiating into spaces would be difficult if park is busy. Pricey for a basic park with no sewer. Great shower houses. Weirdest design for a campground I have ever seen. 30 amp RV's park parallel in spots along the main road or in a tight gravel parking lot. Newly paved 50 amp back-in sites put RV's within inches of each other; no room to walk between RV's if they have slides opened. With 12 (50 amp) sites available there were 6 RV's here during our stay all nonsensically parked side-by-side rather than every other spot. Some highway noise from I70 and Highway 6. We stayed here because this is the only place where we could get a site within 100 miles for Labor Day weekend and having no other choice is the only way we would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Full hookups, gravel sites and interior roads, and typical overpriced KOA. Kampground can be described with one word : Noise. Highway noise and train noise is unbearable. If you're deaf or have removable hearing aids it might be adequate. Otherwise stay elsewhere.

Date of Stay:

Easy access to and in the campground with our extra large 40'+ Big Rig RV. Pretty setting and quiet at night. Rate reflects $26 camping rate + $10 reservation fee + $9 daily vehicle fee. Very nice bathhouses but wasn't impressed by the pay showers; fifty cents per three minutes is somewhat over the top. Great AT&T and Verizon signal. Most sites suitable for satellite; check map when reserving for tree cover. We would return.

Date of Stay:

Follow campground's website directions. GPS off by several miles. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV. Pricey for a gravel lot style park with full hookups. Wide open for satellite reception and Verizon and AT&T both have good signal, which was great because we weren't provided with a password for the WiFi. Very dusty and not "lakeside". Nearby trains run regularly through the day and night and whistles sound just about the time you are getting back to sleep from the last train and whistle. One noisy night was enough - We would not return.

Clearly I'm in the minority but I don't understand the high ratings for this campground. Easy access to and in the park with our extra large sized 40+ Big Rig RV. Very Expensive and I was on a site with thin washed-out gravel with no cable or wifi. Not a resort; more a campground with a swimming pool and a dirty hot-tub. Power flickered several times during our stay. Water was opaque (like watered down milk). Pretty setting but sites are not oriented to see the views. Will look for a campground that is priced more reasonably in relation to amenities offered next time in the area.

Date of Stay:

Well deserving of its good rating. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large 40'+ Big Rig RV. Close to the interstate but no traffic noise. Full hookups, long level pull-through sites, and friendly / helpful staff all for a reasonable price. This is a winner and we will stay again every time we pass through the area.
