This is a simpler campground with reasonable rates. We enjoyed the secluded location. The host was very friendly and accommodating. - David Hir.

The stream campsites are in the owner's front yard. The "Rule Sheet" you get is a page long filled with more don'ts than do's. Parking and turning around are difficult. We were told they only took credit cards, but upon arrival we had to pay cash. Unfriendly staff. - arobic76

I made a 4 night reservation at this campground for 2 adults and 2 dogs (Lab and Husky) in a 35 ft motorhome. The website stated: shaded sites with trees...near or on creek...leash free dog area. When we arrived we were pointed to a gravel parking spot with no trees, no shade, no grass, no dirt, no table...just a parking spot in between 2 other RVs with maybe 5 ft between each. The "dog area" was the side of a mountain almost impossible to get to. I did show the host the print out of his website and asked for a creekside site. He told us those sites are for people without pets and if we didn't like the spot we could just leave. So we did. This was also a cash only place which they did not tell us on the phone, and we would have had to go back into town for the cash. We will never stay here. - Dale and Cyndi House

The rate includes the sales tax, and had to be paid in cash. I might have driven on if I hadn't already been turned away from a state park campground that morning, the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend. The campground is in a narrow canyon and so neither my cell phone nor my mobile Internet router worked, but they gave me a pass code for a good strong Internet access, although slower than Verizon's 4G signal. I also asked for and got the spot next to the creek. It's amazing how much more restful a rushing creek is than traffic noise. - Littlebigrv

We had reserved a non sewer site, upon arrival we learned it was $23 to use the dump station. The receptionist let us move to a sewer site (which was $2.59/night more but less than $23). She was very friendly and helpful. While we were there we had a package sent Fed Ex there, both lady hosts were extremely helpful with this, both watching out for our package if it came before we arrived. Many many thanks to them! The site we moved to, #5, was extremely narrow, but it had sewer. We stayed 2 nights. Bathrooms clean, had to put quarters in to take showers, but I did not use so I don't know how much it cost. We were very close to downtown Golden. A few over the air channels, good Verizon signal. Wifi if you sat near the reception area. Would stay here again without hesitation. - Chucknviv

Stayed here for 10 days, split between site #13 and site #14. Had to play a sort of "musical chairs" on our transition day because three sites were switching, all amongst each other! That was interesting. Somehow, it was done though, and all was well. Site #13 is a bit of a squeeze, as you need to get in close to the edge of the site to make sure you're not blocking the pull through site directly behind you. Thankfully, they guide you to your site and help you position, because this campground is confusing. It's very old, and most of the sites show it (odd spacing, lots of tiny spaces, weird hookup locations, etc).
We were told our hookups were at the back of our site, but when we went to hookup, we weren't numbered for that specific box - we were numbered for a box about 10 feet in FRONT of our rv and down the slope (all sites on the ridge share electric and water with the tent site on the bottom of the ridge). This was very confusing and we had to go out and buy an extension cord to be able to make it work. Then, a few days in, we walked by the hookups and saw that the box we'd originally been told to hook up to (which was only numbered for the tent below) was now magically numbered for our site (#13). Seems the host came by, saw what we had to do to hook up, thought "oops", went and numbered the correct electric box, BUT NEVER TOLD US. We switched it to that one, but it was our last night. We can forgive the bungle, but at least tell us!!
Site #14 was easier by far. Leveling and hookups were all easy. Trash is a bit far from this section of the campground. Also, since this seemed like a grey area when I was researching, you DO need to pay to use the dump station, EVEN IF YOU ARE CAMPING. The fee is $23, and you'll have to sign paperwork acknowledging this.
Other than that, this was a good campground. We were able to get a Verizon Mifi signal. Sites felt open, there's a trail across the road that's great for dogs, and the mountain views are wonderful. - LanderWust

Memorial Day weekend at Chief Hosa, one of the coldest/rainiest holidays in recent memory. The site we had was OK, it was fairly level, but it was muddy, particularly where the tow vehicle was parked. Didn't spend much time outside due to the weather. The campground can get crowded and the sites are close together, but no more so than some of those parking lot RV parks where there's barely room to breathe. The staff was friendly and very helpful, guide to help us get the rig in place. Water/Electric connections, no sewer. Only drawback -- they charge an additional $23 to use the dump station there, which is way too steep a price. I gave the park a 7 rating, since it's a viable park to stay in, close to I-70 and amenities, easy commute to Denver or Evergreen/Conifer area. Some of the sites aren't overly level, and it does take some experience in getting in and around the campground, as there are a lot of trees, and some tight turns. It was clean, and the restrooms were very clean. Some folks gripe about the fee to shower, but it's not really unreasonable. - ThomInColorado

This campground is filled every weekend from Memorial Day until it closes the day after Labor Day. There is a friendly and helpful host. My high rating is for the tent sites--probably the best in the state, the scenery, the large camp sites and the hiking trails. This is a Forest Service campground. There are no hookups. There is a dump at a nearby campground. The RV sites are widely spaced, but there is no shade. Rigs over 35 feet will have a hard time fitting into a site. There are 360 degree spectacular views. Fill your water tank in advance. The only water on site is hand pumped. Reservations are available and required for weekends. The vault toilets are clean. There are no showers. This is a place for people who love camping and the outdoors. Man made amenities are in short supply here. The nightly rate is with a Golden Age pass. - NT2013

This is a forest service campground. There are no hookups. The 3 pull-thru sites are on the creek. However, they are really just wide spots in the road. That said they are private and pretty special. Most of the other RV sites are short and open with no shade. But they have wonderful scenery 360 degrees of it. All have picnic tables tables and fire rings. It is the tents sites that justify the high rating--they are actually a 10 plus. The hiking is also a 10. Wonderful trails!! Trail rides are available just down the rode. Horses are in good condition and gentle. To reach the camp ground take Hwy 24W make a right on CR 77 (less than a mile from Lake George). It is paved. Follow it for 13 miles. The last 7 miles have lots of pot holes. The campground is poorly marked so starting looking for it on the right when you pass the little white school house (looks like a church). Turn right at the end of the white fence just pass the old school. Roads in the campground are good. Tent people will need reservations for the 8 walk in sites. RVers probably can get in without reservations during the week. This campground is full every weekend. - NT2013

The price of $27 includes $1 off for senior discount plus an $8 pass for the tow vehicle. This place is kind of hard to explain. It is like a little oasis in the middle of chaos. What is unusual is you can see and hear noise from the interstate. Plus the very bright lights of the nearby Home Depot. I see this as a day use park more than a place to stay. It appears to be heavily used this way. Most of the RVs were older and appeared to have been stationary for a while. I assume from locals who leave the RVs there for weekends. Our site was very unlevel, and we satisfied ourselves with sort of level. Kind of pricey for just water and electric and no other amenities. It is a long drive from the entrance to the RV sites so be patient :) - Free

This is a big day use park as it is located in town but you don't feel like you are in town. Lots of biking/hiking trails which were really nice. The campground is located at the back of the park. The sites were located a bit close together and there isn't much shade but for the price and location it was great! We stayed a second time as we came back thru Denver after a stay in Rocky Mountian NP. Great location for stocking up on supplies. - Adventure-Next

At first glance i didnt care much for the park, but it started to grow on me each day. The campground has no shade nor privacy. It does have nice sized sites and they are level. Just electricity but water is avaibile in the campground. Great biking and walking trails. There are horse stables and an archery range. Its in a good location to make day trips. We would stay here again. - TEXASBOY

We stayed in spot 9 and had a great view. Spots 1-10 all have amazing views of Central City. Other reviews complained about the drive into the KOA. There is a new access road from the Central City Parkway that eliminates that issue. Our site was concrete and rock with plenty of room for our 35 ft motor home and Toad. The staff was terrific. The roads were wide but were gravel with a large amount of dust. We had a great stay and will very likely return. - Scott and Lorraine

Very beautiful views at this campground. The upper level and back in sites generally have the best views, It is a bit of a tuff climb up the parkway, but the new entrance way saves the extreme down hill and switchback inside Central city. It would be nice if the staff would not put buses in front of the view of travel trailers. The park is dusty, and unfortunatly the staff drives fast and they set a poor example for the guests.That being said the staff were very friendly and helpful. - acadiandave

Park has concrete pads, fire rings, picnic tables. Multi level park with great views. The park is at about 9000 ft. We were in an upper level pull in with and incredible view of the valley below and Central City. As another reviewer said the ride up is better suited for a sports car not a 40 ft motorhome, but it was worth the adventure. - CGNRG

We loved this campground. There were air balloons over the reservoir on two mornings. Grounds well kept. Some distant noise from C 470, but not overwhelming. Beautiful views of the foothills. We didn't use the showers but they looked top shelf. I prefer this SP to Cherry Creek. In addition to the campground fee there is an $8/day SP fee. - Zabanya

We have camped several times here and it is always a fun place to go! This year, we were in A Loop, site #008, our favorite. Great views of the lake and within walking distance to the marina. FHU worked great and site was very level. Water pressure was a bit low, but no problems. This was the first year we brought our boat along and initially we parked the boat and tow vehicle at the marina because we were not sure if it would fit at the site. The next day we tried it and it did fit! Even with the 30ft trailer and truck, the 18ft Bayliner and SUV tow vehicle fit within the site.
Nice and close to home, we will be back! - colochoclab

Large pull through sites. Easy access, full hookups, nice views, lots of space between sites. Easy to get in an out of the sites. Very level. Campsites were very clean. Great all-round campsite. The one downside is they are not close to the water or the marina, but overall a great campsite. Get a site on the outer side of the outer rings of the loops for more space and privacy. - Alix1912

The new ownership of this campground has done a great job improving this place. The sites are slightly narrow for large motorhomes with slides, but we still fit, just closer to neighbors than we usually are. However this campground does not have the ability to expand as it is tucked in to a defined area in a city environment. The location is great as you are close to downtown Golden and have easy access to I-70 if heading into Denver.
The staff was very nice and helpful, the pool and hot tub very clean, bathrooms spotless. You cannot hear the traffic from I-70 even though just off the interstate.
We will definitely stay here again when we come to Denver. Highly recommended!
Price is on the high side but that is expected when in a city. - Hula dancer

We stayed here twice in July. The park is very busy and the exceptional staff works hard to keep ahead of the action. For example, we came to Denver for a funeral. Our initial checkout day and the funeral were on the same day. The front desk staff found us another site in the park which allowed us the extra night. We had a long pull through and a deep back in. Both had room for our motor home and toad. The pull throughs are set up nicely with rigs alternating directions keeping utilities out of view. We have stayed here before and will again. - Scott and Lorraine

As described in previous reviews, location, location, location. This park is so convenient to freeways, shopping, movies, downtown Golden and Denver. Clearly it's banking on that convenience to command the high price. The page of rules and regulations are enough to make even a Washington DC bureaucrat blush. We stayed here about 5 years ago in one of the end sites with a private patio. The grass was greener, patio table looked new, and the office accepted our UPS mail forwarded package without hesitation. It seemed like a very guest friendly, welcoming resort. It was expensive then too, but not nearly what it is today. Because we had such a positive experience the first time, we neglected to read updated reviews of this park on RV Park Reviews. Big mistake. The price has gone up, but the amenities are going down, like they no longer accept UPS or FedEx packages for guests, and the overall appearance isn't what we remembered. Our 2 week visit was in a site with the communal patio area, and we had to disconnect the tow vehicle and park it in front of the motorhome to reach hookups. The grass was dead and the patio tables had seen better days. While our neighbors were very nice, they had a large family BBQ which, through no fault of their own, placed the party right in front of our motorhome. When it came to laundry, the washers were $2.50 and the dryers were $.25 for 4 minutes and they don't even get hot. After what felt like a trip to Las Vegas and a session with a slot machine, we gave up on the dyer and took everything back to the rig still damp. Even the laundry is no bargain here. Sadly, there is so much untapped potential, but you don't get much bang for your buck anymore. It's a mystery why Good Sam rates this park a 10. We won't be back. - Dunwrkn

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith

This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943

This park is the strangest we have stayed in. The sites are concrete and maybe 3 feet wider than our rig. A class A pulled in to the site next to ours, and his slideout was 14 inches from mine. His heater port was right outside our bedroom window, sounded like a tractor starting up. Must be a dog kennel next door to the park--not a relaxing morning. Moving around the site requires care as the next site was about 18" lower than ours with a steep slope to stumble over. Would not feel secure, were I not armed. I'm not sure I could have pulled out, if anyone was in the site below ours, very tight as it was. Stay at Walmart, you'll be better off. - Mike Hartwell
