Better USFS campground than Kelly Dahl up the road, and bonus of having cell reception. Hosts were busier than at KD, kept bathrooms very clean (there are even some new ones here). Variety of sites, many reserved for weekends. Pretty wildflowers, lots of space between most sites, and some are almost level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice and quiet site to spend a restful getaway. There was a large entryway but some of the sites inside are narrow. It is a very quiet campground and we would choose it again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a national forest campground 5 miles north of Blackhawk. It is fairly quiet (highway noise) Rather primitive but roads are good and sites are level. Water is available. Bears have been seen but not many. We camped here in a camper.
This RV park is very sub-par. In a beautiful part of the country, there is no view--it sits down in a valley. Park is not kept up at all. Weeds were up to our knees in the campsite, bathrooms were disgusting. It was so bad, we forfeited the two nights we had paid for when the reservation was made and moved to the nearby KOA (they wouldn't even consider giving us a refund). It's no wonder you have to pay in advance, no one in their right mind would drive in and keep a reservation there otherwise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Miserable stay! Weeds taller than my child, dirty bathrooms, apathetic staff, and seedy looking clientele led to a bad experience. I did not feel safe here. This place is very run down and it is obvious there have been zero repairs or maintenance since it stopped being a KOA years ago. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This park is old and not up to date. The photos on the web site are accurate; dirt roads to bare spots in the quakies. Or biggest problem was the instructions on how to get here. The people "in charge" just didn't seem to care about their customers. I'd certainly go to a park in Golden or a state park before I'd go back to Dory Hill. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Do not believe the pictures on their website. Cable TV advertised but it's only in 4 sites facing side of store. No campfires in this area as there's not enough room between RV's to allow it. Firepits in alot of the other sites and there's lots of grills. Nice help from the man in office but the other staff was extremely lacking in help. Propane, fuel, store, liquor store and recreation center across the street. We stayed in site 27 for the cable TV, only received 20 channels and the view of the side of store. Playground was a joke for my 4-year old but a little walk past the baseball fields and my child fell in love with the best playground. Walked around lots of the sites: 1 and 2 are the best for privacy but unlevel. Plus, a little walk past site 1 there is an old campground that was fun to walk through. Bathroom/showers were clean. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Older campsite, layout is a little funky. Power and water, no sewer, but they do have a dump station. Pretty clean but a little run down. Nice playground for the kids, Dory Hill seems to be a little center for the community. They have propane, convenience and liquor store plus gas (didn't notice if they have diesel or not). Sites are not real level, some are narrow, we had to navigate our rig so we could push out our slides. We would stay here again, there are not many options with power and water in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the only campground up here with hook ups. Water and electric only with a dump station. Dirt roads and the site we are on is very unlevel. In fact I had to put 5.5 inches of blocks down to drive the rear wheel of the truck on to get the front of the 5er up to level it. It still isn't perfect but doable. The office staff is very friendly and nice. I got a Wi-Fi signal from somewhere but don't know where. The Gilpin County offices are across the street so maybe that's where. The Gilpin County rec center is also close by and non-residents can swim indoors and shower and use all the facilities for $3 a day. They advertise cable TV but our site didn't work and I used my satellite dish. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
