St Vrain State park is just north of Denver, CO. While located alongside I-25 there isn't much road noise. There are 3 camping areas. The one on the south side where I stayed (#45) is the newer section. Here the sites are E/W/S. 20/30/50A. Concrete pad next to a curved picnic shelter. The pad is wide enough that I was able to put out the awning on my Airstream without hitting the picnic shelter. Not much shade in this section. The north side has two sections. Both have mature trees. Pelican Loop has the best tree/shade coverage while Mallard Campground has a mix of open and shaded spots. These are electric only sites (20/30/50A) There is a nice dump site available on site. Verizon was 5 bars inside the Airstream with 15/8mbs down/up on Speedtest. Park is convenient to lots of activities in the Denver area. Ft Collins is about 20 minutes north, Longmont 10 minutes west and Boulder about 20 minutes away. E only $22, EWS $26 and a $7 per vehicle fee.

Larson Park is attached to the Guernsey golf course. There are 15 sites. 30/50 power on the power pedestals. Please note there is NO RV dump available. Closest one is the Wyoming Visitor Center at I-25 or within Guernsey State Park. The entrance to one of the Oregon Trail historic sites in nearly across the road and would be hikeable. All sites are back-ins. With relatively close spacing that might be challenging for rigs over 30ft, making the backing turn to get in. Seems to get light to moderate use.

Peak View RV Park is under new ownership. It is located about halfway between I-25 and Gurnsey, WY on US 26. It sits on a hill with a great view to the south and west and the Rocky Mountains. Sites are gravel, full service. Good WiFi and Verizon was 4 bars and great speeds, 10mb/s+.

There was a lot of improvements done in 2014. 14 total sites. All are dead level concrete pads surrounded by gravel. Didn't measure but Class A's would still have room left over. They are also wide enough that you have patio room. Each one has 30A power and water. Site 6 has 50A as well as 30A. City is making a lot of improvements. One of the city personnel said additional improvements would be more trees, a better view of the river and with some funding adding sewer connections at each site. There is a major railroad track about 8 blocks away but even with heavy coal traffic it really couldn't be heard. Verizon was 1-2 bars LTE which seems to be normal for Torrington.

Date of Stay:

This park has 27 spots with Water, 30a and sewer. Spots are reasonably level. All gravel. It is a self service park so there is no one there for checkin. 1-2 bars on Verizon which is typical for Torrington. There were only 2 other RV's when I drove through. And two that were there permanently, didn't look like they were being used. Gave it an average score, serviceable but not exactly an outstanding RV park.

Small park with friendly owners. 3 miles from the Fort Laramie National Historic Site. It is next to the railroad tracks but I must be lucky since there hasn't been a train this afternoon. The tracks are usually heavy with coal trains from the open pit mines in Wyoming. Site was dead level. Easy setup. 50amp worked fine. There are couple of what look like full time rigs and the houses surround the sites. No big deal unless you have a hang up attitude. The town has one restaurant but most other spots including a gas station that was open a couple of years ago are now closed. Check out the Lira Mexican restaurant in Lingle, WY which is 10 minutes to the east.

Great park. The parks folks are helpful. Most sites are first come and they will let you go find a spot before you pay. Since I work from the road I needed Verizon service. The only area that had coverage was on the northwest side as you come into the park and the water/electric sites. 2 bars Verizon LTE but I needed my Wilson booster to get that level of coverage.

Date of Stay:

This could be a great park. Good location, picturesque, friendly staff, somewhat tight spots but that is the norm. I'd rate it higher except for the lack of cable channels and very poor Wi-Fi. And the Wi-Fi other than 1 hour is not free. TengoInternet with the usual charges. Verizon MiFi worked fine.

     

Lyman KOA

Lyman, Wyoming

Date of Stay:

A basic KOA. Sites are on grass with gravel tire tracks. Need blocks to get level. Wi-Fi was poor. Verizon was fine. Lyman is close to the fort at Fort Bridger state park. Try "The Cafe" at the truck stop on I-80. Looks like a dive but the food is very good and reasonably priced.

Date of Stay:

Interesting park. Sites are on grass, huge amount of space. Bit uneven so needed blocks to get level. Good Verizon, so-so Wi-Fi. Best part is being next door to the state park of the same name.

Date of Stay:

Nice KOA. Check in was straight forward. Sites have a reasonable amount of space between them. Number of sites have shade trees. Good looking swimming pool and hiking trails behind the park.

Nice park in an interesting small town. Back of the park has great sites with lots of shade trees. I booked at the last minute and had a spot next to Hughes Rd. Wasn't a problem. Very quiet with little traffic noise during the night. One of the most unique set of RV park buildings I have ever seen. Management was friendly and efficient.

There are multiple campgrounds around Carter Lake. I stayed 1 night at the Eagle CG at the north end but had zero Verizon service even with a booster. Sites in Eagle can be challenging to get your rig level. I need 3 levels of leveling blocks and still wasn't quite level. Moved to the South Shore CG. I found a few sites where I could get a couple of bars of LTE on Verizon but only with a Wilson 4G booster. S27 and the adjacent sites had a signal. Park was busy on Sunday but pretty quite for the next 3 days.

Nice county-run park. Sites are dirt but level with a bit of grass between them. Water and electricity only. Water and electicity is $25, water OR electric only is $20, no hookups $15. Self pay station if the office is closed takes Visa, MC, or cash. Might be a bit noisy if there are events going on but on this Friday night it was peaceful.
