All the previous comments tell it all...HOWEVER...we paid $295 for the weekly rate plus $46 for one extra night! What we got was reliable 50amp electric, good water pressure and a sewer hookup in the back of the site. For what the owners charge they should be able to upgrade the washrooms, showers, pool, etc...and have a great park. When the VA hospital opens, they will have no problem filling the park. - loneranger

The owner is nice the very first days but changes very quickly. Once you are set up she is rude and spends her days checking on you in her little golf cart. I have nothing against owners checking that everything is ok by making rounds but the owner of this park stops and stares which is very uncomfortable. The restrooms are disgusting: the sinks are broken, the doors don't lock properly and toilet paper is always out! The showers are very dirty. The sites are not well maintained, the power doesn't work very well, I was always plugging and unplugging to have power. My husband's kids came for the summer and the morning after their arrival, Fay, the owner, came to ask me "are these your kids?" in a very aggressive and rude way. I said yes and she said "it's $5/day per kid to stay here". We left the same day!!! Not only it's outrageous as we pay for a site that is not even nice, the swimming pool is condemned and the owner will not fix it because it costs too much money and she told me, before we brought the kids, that kids were annoying and noisy!!! Nice! Anyway, unless you really need a RV park for the night or the week, I wouldn't recommend this park. She charged $269/week for a dirty, not welcoming, not well maintained site. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!!!! - Lt-11-03

The park was incredibly filthy, waist high grass everywhere, dilapidated trailers everywhere. This place was a majority of trailer park homes that were run down, dogs barking, trash everywhere. The pool was empty and the office space was a run down space. I literally feared for my life when I had to walk my dog to use the restroom. - S. Watkins

We enjoyed our stay at this campground very much. There are nice concrete pads with full hookups. Shade is pretty much non existent so getting your satellite to connect is easy. What we really appreciated was the WYFI service. With a $50 refundable deposit you received your own MYFI unit with unlimited data. We have never encountered this before and were very pleased with this great service.
Camphost was very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Reservations in the summer are a good idea. The campground was very busy throughout our stay with little availability.
Grass is very shaggy around your sites but remember this is a high desert area.
We would definitely stay here again. - Wgcamper

We just spent 3 weeks at Buckley Famcamp, and enjoyed our stay. The Famcamp is located away from the city and majority of the base with quick access to the base facilities. It is quiet except for the "sounds of freedom", F-16s, taking off and buzzing the runway which is located right across the street. Don't get me wrong, we loved hearing and seeing them and took many great pics! Bath/restroom facilities appeared clean, we did not use them. Sites are level. Although there were some families with children in the Famcamp they were quite and not bothersome. Over all we really liked this campground and will use it again if we return to the Denver area. Now the not so positive: the campground is run by MWR and has NO emphasis placed on it from the base/MWR commanders consequently MWR employees pay no attention. There were 5 sites with broken water pipes that have not been repaired and no one shows any signs of wanting to repair them. The streets within the Famcamp are narrow, not enough maneuver space when you must turn corners, as evidenced by the mud on the roads and ruts in the grass areas. At least one site is all but impossible to get into even with a small trailer due to the sites positioning and the narrow roads. The Famcamp sits on a hill and many of the sites are low, when it rains they retain water. Mowing happens only before holidays so the grass was high, due to all of the rain. They mowed just before Memorial day weekend and brought a street sweeper in and cleaned off the interior roads. What a difference! - Harley Oma

We are presently parked at Buckley and very pleased to see improvement. We were here 2 years ago and the weeds and grass were shockingly high. This is a pretty new facility, with large spaces, concrete pads, picnic tables at each site and full hook-ups. Buckley is a really nice base and Aurora is a nice area and very close to Denver Int'l Airport. You may make a reservation, but not for a specific spot. In fact, this place appears to be so busy I would say that you MUST make a reservation and not just assume that an empty one is yours for the taking. There is now a camp host on site(we were greeted promptly and very nicely) and you WILL have to move if you wind up sneaking in and taking another's slot. There are a few longer stay folks, but n actual homesteaders ... just folks waiting to make settlement on a new home. the grass is not being mowed on a regular schedule and the facilities are very clean. Laundry is FREE! - dqcarol

This is a gorgeous park just outside the hustle bustle of Denver. Beautiful reservoir with swimming, boating and miles of bike paths. Lots of birds and wildlife too. Highly recommended, but plan ahead, especially in the summer months. Must reserve in advance. Most RV spots are well groomed and have lots of space and privacy in between sites. We had plenty of room for our 34 foot RV in the Pioneer and then Coyote Loops. - AF -San Diego

Price includes $10 transaction fee for online booking plus $9 per night park fee which is paid at the gate. They accept credit cards. If you plan to stay at other CO state parks, you might consider buying an annual pass instead.
Cherry Creek is a lovely park with tons of things to do. The sites are large with lots of separation between them. We wished we could have stayed longer. It's definitely one of our all-time favorite campgrounds! Apparently we're not the only ones who love it. The park is popular - especially on weekends - so try to book early.
Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi and DirecTV all worked perfectly. We did not use the park's wifi system.
Depending on which site you're in, you will hear noise from Parker Road but we didn't find it bothersome. You're more likely to notice it during rush hour periods or if there are sirens. - GottaGoNow

I cannot believe this place. We reserved it because it is billed as the only RV Park in the city of Denver. We wanted to be close to downtown, so visit the mint, and museums. Although the park itself is reasonably clean, the neighborhood is horrible. I felt like I was staying in an inner city ghetto. Its on a major street, sirens constantly all night, and hookers walking the park! They actually knocked on our door and offered, well, you can figure that out! We didn't have a car, and when we walked a few blocks to a liquor store, we were approached by someone offering to sell us marijuana, and by a beggar. We had breakfast one morning at a nearby restaurant, where we met a local cop. From her, I learned that the owner of the RV Park also owns the run down, seedy motels and trailer houses surrounding it, and is uncooperative with law enforcement. Her comment was, "Why in the world is someone like you, staying at that dump?" Absolutely avoid this place at all costs. - Mallory

Good news: Close to Hyland Hill's Waterworld. Bad news: More squatters than RV'ers. Make sure you lock everything as it sounded like the police were busy enough in this area. - dpthdiver

We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

We were desperate for a site in Denver and very happy to find this park. The laundry facilities were inexpensive and very clean. The long term residences are, for the most part, neat and tidy. The park is certainly quiet. The clubhouse was clean and pleasant. We were fortunate enough to have utilities that were easy to reach, not the ones in the center of the slab. Other reviews have talked about the speed bumps which are effective to say the least. The curbs are difficult to back over. The rates were pricey and they do not take credit cards. We had to park our car on the street as did many others. - codgette

Wow. I want to say something nice but I'm having a tough time. We needed the site for storage and electric only. There was no break on the price. That is the first time in 6 years we have paid full price when we weren't even in the unit. The interior roads are narrow for large rigs - doable, but narrow. Lots of speed bumps- more like speed mountains - they are big. The handful of sites for RVs are narrow and short, with broken concrete. We thought for sure we had busted a tire trying to back into the site. We had to park the car sideways to keep it out of the road. Not much space between sites either. It was hot so we had all three A/Cs running. After a few minutes, they all shut off. We reset the breaker at the post and tried again. Same deal. After the third time, we went to the office. They said it was due to the service that was being done on some lines in the park. Not so. My husband figured out that the 50amp circuit breaker was bad. Back to the office. The lady at the front desk pointed at a man leaving in a golf cart and said that's who we needed to talk to. We chased him down and explained the problem. First thing he did was look at his watch - 20 minutes until the office closed. Uh oh. Although he was less than personable, he did replace the circuit. And don't even think about using the WIFI. It was unusable. - Free

This is the second time we stayed here, terrible access to the main street, the trees and brush hang over so you have to pull almost into traffic to get out.
The first time we stayed here was Dec 14 ice and snow and no water, same price, The temporary spots are back in. If your unit is smaller than 30 ft, bad curbing and narrow drives makes it difficult for any one with a 24' trailer and pick up. And even if it just an over nite you must disconnect to be there. Second time in July 15. Same parking, back in disconnect and no parking because other pickups are there also. Grass is not cut and brush along the road is worse than in the winter.
I had hit a stump and bent / loosened my step and was rattling, so I decided to fix it by re-adjusting it. The manager came by and chewed me out for working on the step. Although his wife was a nice person . I will not recommend this place and good luck getting out of the drives. And do not park on the concrete as it may crack. - Chucksontheroad

This park is strickly for Elks Club members and their guests only. A very nice park with 40 sites. 50 amps FHU $20, 30 amp FHU $18. Water and electric only $16. They say they have a dump station. The lounge is very nice and they have lunches and dinners. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area. - kathiecarlson

We found a gem, but... It is now closed while the county makes rules for the campground. On the northeast side of Denver, we arrived about 8pm. Looking for a stop-over site for 1 night, we opted to avoid the other tacky run-down campgrounds along I-76. We chose to drive 6 miles for a quiet night. Arriving at the clean park/fairgrounds we looked for a sign to find the camp sites. We did find the camping locations using the internet. Parking on concrete and blacktop, all sites were very close together parking-lot-style and were marked "reserved" or do NOT park here. Although their website http://www.co.adams.co.us/index.aspx?NID=396 lists 4 separate camping sites, there is a 5th new camping area with an additional 4 sites with 50 amp and 30 amp hook-ups (no water). The nice sites are across the street - East - from sites 1-8. These new sites back up to the green park surrounding the Mann/Nyholt Lake. The area is gravel and almost level. A picnic shelter is at one end of the new sites. No water at these new sites. Verizon wifi was strong. Although no one from the county administration building was around to help us find a site, a local lady was very helpful. There were no activities the night that we stayed, and it was very peaceful. No late registration box available, so we paid in the morning before leaving. No Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We would return, but call first to be sure it is again open. - AluminumCloud

This is basically a place to overnight, it is not a destination. Being a fairgrounds, the sites are meant to oblige 4H and rodeo campers who need to be near their livestock, but can be used by anyone where there are no events scheduled. There is an excellent park only a few hundred yards to the east, and good fishing in the lakes there. There is no shade and all RV's must use the dump station which is in the wrong location on the map given to you at check-in. Also, the woman who handles the bookings can be very cranky. A good place to park for us since we were visiting family nearby, and very inexpensive. - je23dr13

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We had 30 amp service and water. The first two nights were very quiet. Only one other RV. On night three, ten rigs arrived between 10 p.m. and midnight. They were part of the work crew setting up for an event at the fairgrounds. The place got very busy. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so plan your arrival accordingly or call ahead. Staff was super to work with. - Traveller101

We were wanting to stay near Denver and lucked out to get a reservation at Prospect RV Park. The park is in a great location about 15 miles from the 16th Street Mall. The owners are very welcoming and the park is clean. Sites are fairly close together, but hookups are positioned well. Wifi was not great but we were about as far from the office as you could get. And the office advised that the wifi was for light surfing and not streaming. Lot is gravel and our site was level. The laundry facility was nice and clean. No frills, but the location can't be beat for visiting downtown Denver. We would definitely stay here again. - chefb1969

We have stayed at this park a few times and find it very convenient for access to Denver. It is adjacent to a town park that provides a great dog walking. We plan to stay here again. - gadabout80

Needed a place for 2 nights near Denver. This park looked okay from previous reviews and due to lack of parks in the Denver area and very poor reviews on nearly all parks we chose to stay at Prospect. The park was fully booked, most units were permanent or seasonal. It was 95 degrees. We had site 10, an end site. The electric power was supposedly 50 amp but output was insufficient for our coach. On leg was 112 and other fluctuated between 105 to 107 causing pulsating surge. Park claimed they hadn't experienced issue before but later admitted they had previous issues with sites at the end of service line. However, another RV owner in a Prevost was also in the office reporting he had the same electrical issues for several days. We had to use our generator during the day but would not be allowed to run it at night. We were able to use a 20 amp outlet on pedestal to run an extension cord through a window to power an electric fan. Since we could not locate any other parks in area and that the TravelAmerica Center 2 blocks away and the Walmart would not permit overnight RV parking we were stuck. The owner did advise the park was built in 1988 on a "shoe string budget" and has outdated aluminum wiring. She willingly accepted my proposal for us to stay for 2 nights and only charge for 1 night. If you have a newer model RV and require minimal electrical to power your unit be aware that this park may not fit your needs. The park is otherwise okay but no frills. Location is good for access to I-70 and is quiet. - venice

Good luck in finding a decent campground on I-76 in CO. This one was adequate for an overnight, but it is really a permanent trailer park, with plenty of junk laying around the full timers. That being said, we felt safe and it was quiet enough for an overnight. We pulled in to several others on the way and would not even consider parking our RV. There is a great business opportunity for someone to open several parks in a cannot miss area. - Sir_Charles395

The park itself (common areas etc) appears well maintained and clean if old. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about some sites and, as noted, most sites are occupied by long-termers. Quiet for our weekday stay. Perhaps with little turnover there is no need for staff to be responsive via phone or office presence - in fairness, my call re: availability was returned after a few hours. Older park with a somewhat cramped layout but I've had much smaller sites and the road junctions are big enough for big rigs. Some sites could be a leveling challenge. All in all, its acceptable for a short stay. Especially considering what else is available this side of Denver and the price. - fulltimer121

Although the space was nicely sized, this campground was, well, awful. I called to make the reservation and asked about Internet at the site. She said yes, they have it but it could fade in and out. Well, there was none at the site. I had to get it in the office which closed early-ish, but was also available outside the office door. Sitting in the rain to get Internet was an issue. Also asked if there was a tornado shelter as Denver airport just had one and it was about 10 to 15 minutes away. She said the office was the shelter. However it closes at night so it's a shelter only during the day! This campground was extremely noisy with trains going by at least once an hour, including the middle of the night, all night. It is located about a half block from I-76 so the truck noise goes on all night. The place is not neat as it has probably 90% permanent residents which store junk all over the place. I would not stay at this 'campground' again, nor would I recommend it. I could stay elsewhere for the same or less money and I would. - IreneJD
