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

Very guest unfriendly $23.00 to dump your sewer. They will not receive a package sent to me by mail. Owned by the City of Denver and they couldn't care less what you think, it won't affect their pay check one bit. While your at this campground you are in the safest place in the US. The camp host drives his Gator by every 15 min. and you will see a park ranger often. I don't know what they are looking for but you feel like you are being watched constantly. - Jimmy elloitt

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

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

Great clean city park, and value for the location. Park is about 3o minutes from denver, only 10 minutes to red rocks amphitheater. Close to major highways, restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Electric only sites, although there is water spickets throughout the park, if you get lucky can just run a hose over and fill up your tank. Cell service worked great for At&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Sites are very large with fire pits and a picnic table. Tons of walking and biking trails surrounding the park A.so borders a golf course, which has a walking/biking path that runs through it. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

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

On a gravel drive. No grass. Very close together sites. If you have a spot in the north edge you have a good view. Everyone else parking lot. - Paige Taylor

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

Spent a week here. Very nice and scenic. Lots of walking trails. Laundry was an extra bonus at a state park. You did have to pay a $8 daily fee on top of the nightly rate. - Paige Taylor

We were able to reserve a site available by walk-up. It's a 3-mile drive from the entrance to the campground. All the sites in this campground are pull-throughs and situated in large loops encircling each other, so you still have neighbors, but everyone feels pretty spaced out from each other. It's a pretty good system. The roads are all paved and sites are all concrete pads and level. No view of the lake from the campground, but you're far from the city and feels like you're out in nature on the prairie. It's a nice retreat for the city-dwellers who don't want to travel far away. - Sara C.

We stayed at Chatfield SP for two weeks shortly after staying at nearby Cherry Creek SP for two weeks, so drawing comparisons is inevitable. Chatfield gets high marks for offering full hookups and level, concrete sites for only $30/night. There are lots of paved trails for biking and walking, and we never ran out of places to walk our dog from the campground (including walking him down to the lake for a swim). Although the park has great views of the nearby mountains, we found the park scenery itself to be pretty bland--very few trees, mostly just open fields. Of the four camping loops, we found that the sites in A, B, and C were fairly close together. We chose D loop which has much larger and more private sites. Although we saw a strong signal from the campground WiFi we were never able to get connected. Our Verizon and AT&T both hovered around 1-2 bars of signal so we switched on our cell booster for better speeds. The fenced 70-acre dog park ($2/day or $20/year) is very nice, with paved walking trails and several small lakes for dogs to swim in. It's on the other side of the State Park though, which means a 7-mile drive from the campground, around the lake, on 25 MPH roads, so plan on 15 minutes each way to get to the dog park. The park roads are generally good, but some sections are new and wide with bike lanes, and some sections are old and narrow, so you WILL be driving slowly behind bicyclists pretty often. It also takes at least 15 minutes to exit the park and get to the nearest stores. Despite these drawbacks it's a very nice park and we'll likely return. - LifeRebooted

Contrary to claims this is not a big rig friendly park. Inordinate number of rules and fines. Locked trash dumpsters with $25 customer fine if trash left and scattered. Rude golf cart "police" watching for visitors who have not paid although perhaps only stopping by for a few minutes visit. $5/car plus $5/person. Overpriced rates. NONREFUNDABLE 50% reservation required. Pool and spa closed. No CATV. SATV difficult from many sites. Locals strong.
This was our favored park for many years, but it has become so crowded with too large of RVs extending into the streets, plus other vehicles also encroaching into the streets. So customer unfriendly, and so overpriced, that we no longer recommend staying there. This deterioration has been gradual over the past 4 or 5 years, but has really gotten bad over the last 2 years with the advent of rude "golf cart police" out enfircing rules with no common sense. We will not be returning after using this park for over 15 years. - User1485

Very good location for 7 night stay. Clean restrooms..some showers did not get hot...close but good sites..dog area for dogs...but would be great if it was fenced so dogs could come off leash. .bags for dog waste at walk..but amazing some folks still opt not to pick up which makes it bad for us that do. Office staff very nice. Good park and would be my pick in area again. - GrandpaBentley

We travel full time in a 45 foot coach and have been traveling from 2008. So, in other words, a lot. I mention this so you know we have things to compare to. We have not idea on how this park gets good reviews. The park is rated as a Big Rig park. While we did fit, it truly is NOT setup to handle large rigs. Few sites fit a 45 foot coach here and the pads just fit the coach and you step out on rocks if you do not twist an angle on the concrete. The site they gave us, a "Pull Through" which we can not pull out of as we would not be able to make the turn as they have a light pole in the way and the site in front of you is too close as the road is too narrow. As such, this pull through site needs to be backed out of. We made mention of this to them and the answer was that they have few sites that will fit. We did tell them that the site they put us in, while we did fit, we could not pull out of and need to back out. We asked for a back in site, which is less expensive, and they said we would not fit. So not only do we still need to back out of a pull through, we needed to pay the higher price.
The site is not level, a number of them are not, and we could not use our jacks and needed to air level, good thing we have that option, as the site is so off, the jack leveling system said No Way! Then you have the sewer line that goes up hill! Yes, depending on which way you are parked, your line may be UP HILL and thus becomes an issue when it comes time to put things away as there is no way to empty the tube before you disconnect. The sites also share a common area. So your door is facing the door of your neighbor. So you have no private area. In fact, we can not even use the picnic table as it is at about a 20 degree due to tree roots. And that tree is so close and over grown that we can not use the awnings. A lot more to mention but I only get 2000 char. for this review. - BrendaB

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
