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

Private residence with spaces set up around their home.
The site was located by a beautiful little stream.
Very inconvenient dog walk area. - Pungogirl

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

We stayed here for three days to visit friends in the area. This is the first and original RV park in the US of A. We knew coming in there were limited services (30 amp electric and water with dump site) but it was perfect. Good space between rigs, quiet, and many trees. It took us 20 min to get almost anywhere in west Denver. Showers cost $.25 for 2min ($1.50 for my shower) and were very clean. The roads thru the park were gravel and washed out somewhat, but passable. We will be back. We camped here in a motorhome. - k-n-r

Small campground right off I-70, so there is road noise. Sites are electric and water, no sewer. Area is manned by two campground hosts. Dump station costs $23. Not really big rig friendly as there are only a few pull thrus, mostly back-ins. Some trees close to the turns. Our site was fairly level. Bathrooms were clean, showers 25 cents per 2 minutes. This is a no frills campground, but there is a hiking trail and it is a great base to go do things in Golden, Denver, Idaho Springs. The historic Chief Hosa Lodge is right next door but is used as a rental facility. - mohocamper

The Rv sites are a bit tight but the hosts guide you in so there's no need to worry at all. They're amazing! The dump fee is $23 and the showers cost $.25 per two minutes and you can only use 2 quarters at a time. Beside the freeway noise the campground is fairly quiet. The hosts are incredibly friendly and very caring. If you want to grab a cancellation make sure you ask them in the morning and they'll come get you if one pops up. It's a close campground to a lot of neat say trips. One exit down/up is Walmart if you need anything. We did have two bears rummaging sites last night. - Kimmy B

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

We stayed at Bear Creek for three days in a motorhome. Though the sites weren't level, we were able to get stabilized without to much difficulty. The sites were roomy and quiet, with plenty of room for tow and great Verizon signal. We had friends join us who stayed in the cabins and their only complaint was the terrible smell in the pit toilets. It was hardly bearable, but fortunately they could just use ours. That did require us to go to the dump station more than we'd anticipated, but all in all it wasn't a big deal. We would stay there again. - lpsmith

Very quite, great lake facilities and other sports if desired. The area were the camp sites are do not have large trees as yet but they have been planted. It was a mix of tents, RV's of different ages. There were children, old folks like us, 20 somethings but very quite the 3 days we were there. - LindaGarrard

Again, this is a difficult place to describe. We had 50 amp electric but no water (they have a fill up station). No sewer but there is a dump. If you want a pull-thru, the sites are way in the back. The closest restroom was a vault toilet. Stinky and full of flies. Disgusting. The campground is quite a ways in from the park entrance. - bspe

As I read many of the other reviews of this park, I feel a little foolish writing my review. I'm not sure that we were staying at the same park.
First, the positives. The staff was very friendly and efficient and we were escorted to our spot upon arrival. The problem with the road has been addressed and there is now an easier entrance.
Then, the negatives. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with concrete pads installed. There are a few trees that have been planted in the gravel that will be nice once they mature. The spaces are very narrow. Our neighbor had two trucks parked and although they were fully in their space, the truck bumper was about 3 feet from the bench of our picnic table. Too close for me. The 5th wheel across the parking lot had 2 trucks and a small car parked in their space. Pretty tight! The new entrance is not marked as such. Although we were on the right road, the place where we needed to enter looked like an exit. The upper loop where we were parked offered no view whatsoever, except of other rigs. We have been on the road for 4 months and this is the most we have paid for a spot, yet, this is the most unpleasant park that we have been in during this time. We will look for a different park next time we are through this area. - themom3

We stayed here on two different sites. The experience was night and day as a result. The pros of this park are the location, the camp store and some of the staff. The cons are major ones - is it all sharp, dusty gravel and some very clueless staff.
I thought we were prepared for the mountain climb with the reviews here - but what they really don't tell you is that the climb starts about 10 miles east of the exit. Once you get to the park there isn't really a climb. Ignore gps! There are brand new roads so once you get off the exit, follow the KOA signs. The first site was amazing - right on the edge (I think it was site 3) where all you saw were mountain views and lights of Central City. It was amazing. The biggest problem was there was absolutely no grass anywhere and the gravel wasn't polished - it was very tough if you have dogs.
The camp store is huge and will most likely have anything you want. The staff who work in there are hit or miss. There are a few - namely the owner, his son and a few long-term staffers - that were excellent. There were a few who were completely clueless. For example, I observed them watching three kids throw rocks (rocks, not stones) at chipmunks and they said nothing. I finally told the kids to stop. Being a campground, I'd hope that respect for wildlife was high on the staffers' radar. Nope. These same staffers also let their dogs loose in the park - observed, mind you, but loose.
The second site was not good. No view. Still the sharp gravel, still no grass, and with the lack of view it wasn't worth staying there. Because of the dust, you couldn't really enjoy spending time outdoors without the view.
We could potentially stay here again, but it would be a stop-through if anything. - Kamnel

A very large state park with lots of things to do: Biking, boating, fishing, model plane airstrip, camping. You get the picture. In our camping loop D there were a few trees but not many. I think it was a average of one per sight. Lots of room between sites with full hookups and nice level concrete pads for parking. There is plenty of room to park our big motorhome, our car and our friends car when they came to visit. There is a fire ring and picnic table. We would stay here again. - k-n-r

We stayed here for three nights and definitely would come back. We received free daily passes due to my husband being a veteran. A nice surprise and appreciation from the state of CO! The campground was spacious and had nice trails, especially for bikes. The scenery is beautiful and a very relaxed atmosphere. - GT and DK

Park is located on Chatfield lake in Littleton CO, southwest of Denver. We were there on a Thursday and camped in site C122, electricity only for $26.00. There were plenty of sites available. Sites were pull through and have very little or no shade. We were in a electricity only loop, there is a full hook-up loop for $30.00. We had a Veterans/Military Pass, issued by Colorado for its State Parks. Saves you the $8.00 daily pass which is in addition to the camping fee at every Colorado State Park during the month of August.
Park facilities include flush toilets, pay hot showers, laundry, centrally located water, fire ring and a dump station. Bathroom and Shower house was very clean. The park offers boating, bicycling, horseback riding, hiking, and a swimming beach on the opposite side of the lake. It even has a model airplane flying field. We would stay at Chatfield SP again. - Viarivoli

Stayed at Dakota Ridge for a week which included the Labor Day Weekend. The rates go up by $10 per day for Labor Day which I have never approved of. It bothers me that someone charges more, "Just because we can". The park is laid out well and are reasonably level. Blacktop roads and concrete pads are nice and dirt/grass between spaces. Site was barely long enough for 45' MH and tow. Sites are mostly opposing pull through so you share a patio (grass/dirt) with your neighbor which worked out for us as our neighbors were quite enjoyable. Space between coaches on utility sides is sort of tight. There is about 8 to 10 feet between our slides which is acceptable, but does not do much to enhance any view. Park is well maintained, pool, hot tub, which we did not use. Convenient access to I-70 and local shopping. However price seemed high (including Labor Day Surcharge). We would stay here again, but would probably look around more before we booked. - TheBigL

This park has location location location. Proximity to freeways was terrific. However, No cable tv but good antenna reception. Stayed 3 nights and never able to connect to their wifi. Not as tight as some of the reviews. We backed up to a hill and their were a lot of people walking near our site to the hiking trail. - Maltaman

This park has is centrally located and close to freeways. We had good satellite, but had to put out the traveler rather than the rooftop. ATT excellent. Wifi was good. Sites are close and the park is busy, and there are not many big rig sites so plan ahead. - zcaptain

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
