30 Parks near Boulder, Colorado
Jul 2010 - $13.00
Although this RV park did not have amenities and was very basic, we were happy to have it available. There is no other RV parking in the vicinity of Boulder. Since we wanted to visit our daughter there, we needed this play to stay. The management was friendly, but Wi-Fi only worked inside the building. - Ricky724

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient for visiting friends in the Longmont/Boulder area. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weekend in September.
All sites have electric, some have water. There's a dump station near the entrance. There's no wifi. ATT and Verizon coverage were ok. The sites are all arrayed in a flat gravel parking lot and are quite narrow. Sites on the ends of the rows feel larger as they abut small islands to direct traffic which also hold a picnic table. There are few trees, mostly around the perimeter. Despite the small sites and nearly full campground, we enjoyed several quiet nights. All sites are first come first serve, there are no reservations. - dsvt

Simple park in nice area, convenient to shopping, movies, and Saturday farmers market in season. Easy spots on a first come first serve basis with 14 day stay limit. Easy into Boulder, Lafayette, etc. W&E worked great. Dump station pretty easy to get into. No sewer sites but nicely kept bathhouse with individually lock shower stalls and clean sink/toilet ares. Very quiet after dark. Humane shelter close by but no noise noted. Park needs some spiffing up so you don't feel like you are camping in an empty lot. Overall, a good place to stay.
We will stay here again. - FulltimerFun

Nice little park in the middle of longmont, CO. Nothing fancy about it, gravel roads and sites that are little tight. Bathhouse with separate showers. Lots of places and things to do with a mile or two. We were able to ride our bikes to grocery stores, restaurants, and the old main street area. About a 15 minute drive to Boulder. No wifi or cable. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

The roads are winding and they're not clearly marked, so it is difficult finding out where to go.
We were woken by police officers shaking our tent at 4 AM, as was everyone else at the campground. It was horrifying.
It is always very full, and there are tons of loud children and infants. - Hayley W

We are full timers and spent late May through August in this park. This is the only park I know of in Denver area that is NO reservations - which is great. You can almost always get in during week days, and often on weekends, just by showing up around the noon check out time. First come, first serve. The 2 catches are that you must be out one day after 14 days, and you can't occupy the park on holiday weekends - 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc. They are reserved for boaters with passes. You can buy an annual $16 senior pass, which eliminates the $7 a day entrance fee. We paid $12 a day, plus the one time $16. Wonderful, spacious sites by the lake, and some not so spacious further back. - charlyhors

We stayed here about 4 years ago, and the quality has stayed about the same, the sites are spacious, and its a good value for the $$. The fishing is ok and they have one dock near the boat ramp you can also fish from. The rangers are very helpful in seeing you are sucessful in catching something. I wish they had at least a dump station on site. - Fitzjohnfan

This is a FHU city park. The sites are very, very close, I was between to class a's and my 5th wheel slide out almost touched theirs. No room for awning or anything else. There was no picnic table of course no room for one. The sites were level, but short. At this time its a cash or check operation no credit cards. The host did take me to the site and directed my backing. As for tv do not plan on watching much you do get a few. - rving4fun

This is a beautiful park, only partially recovered from a devastating flood in 2013. It has water, sewer, electric on very tight sites. Our shady area is adjacent to our neighbor's sewer hookup. The upside is that is the only RV park near Boulder with utilities and is in the center of a charming old town. Interesting restaurants with organic food and craft beers are within walking distance. Utilities are new and adequate. Over-the-air TV is adequate. We thought we had a reservation, but the host seemed surprised. There was room and he allowed us to choose. There are no site numbers, and access to St.Vrains river is fenced off with Do Not Enter. But grassy park areas, and beautiful cliffs make this a hidden gem. In addition to the site fee, the city asks for donations to help rebuild. I hope the city can get the funds to finish the job. - Yeager

As previously stated it is a small campground and if you have pop outs then would be very tight. All gravel, no grass, no picnic tables, no fire pit, just gravel. To the west of the pull in sites there are sites for tents and there must have been two dozen squeezed in. The showers/toilets must be at the far end of the park. But in torrential rain I didn't make that journey. There were two porta-johns, not sure if the camp hosts are responsible but they were trashed inside. One was so bad that stuff was on the floor in front of the actual toilet. Most disgusting situation for a porta-john. Good news is the town has a visitor center a block east, closer than the bathrooms in the park, which are fine. Did get one bar on Verizon but it was weak LTE and sometimes switched to a roaming connection. Won't go back. Just wasn't a whole lot of fun. And at $35 you should expect more. - Gary Camp-Inn

We stayed here one night mid-week. Weekends are always full and there are rarely any cancellations. The camping area is built around several ponds. The mature area - sites 1-41 - is paved, has trees and shade, and the plumbed facilities are located on that side. The newer area has plenty of room for bigger rigs, and pit toilets in permanent structures. The roads on the new side are dirt/gravel, and the grass is natural growth - which means pretty scrubby out in Colorado where the winters are harsh and summers are hot and dry.
The picnic tables are covered by a type of awning which would provide some shade and maybe some wind protection. The sites have cement pads that are VERY level. We didn't have to unhook the Freightliner from our 45' fifth wheel, and even had room for the car although it was tight. The loop configuration makes it feel spacious, and you don't have neighbors right next to you.
Proximity to I-25 meant a bit of traffic noise from the freeway, but we weren't bothered by it even with the windows open. The volunteer hosts and rangers were very friendly and helpful. - Denise and Glenn

Great state park, lots of room and lots of sites. Great job of setting up sites; large concrete pads and picnic tables with wind breaks; great water/power/sewer setups. Some road noise from interstate which just east of the park, but the park is large and roomy. - FOSJ

Paved entrance road, but most interior roads are gravel/dirt. Pads are concrete and pretty level with excellent spacing between sites and utilities well placed. Sites have rubber-coated picnic tables that accommodate wheelchairs and have a permanent shade that gives some relief from the afternoon sun. They have a barrel or two for recycle (metal/glass/plastic). It appeared that the Park Police patrolled continuously so it is very safe. The park is right next to I-25, with essentially no barrier trees so there is some low to moderate road noise, but that did not bother us. There are several ponds that can be fished (bass, crappie, catfish, etc.) and licenses may be purchased at the entrance. - FreeWheeler

Pretty good forest service cg, close to Nederland. But could not find a single level site, and as previously said, this place is best for tents and vans. No cell reception. Hosts never made contact with anyone and raced around in a truck. - Annie's Song

This is a gorgeous setting (right in the middle of National Forest at 8,600 feet). Sites are dirt and vary a bit in size and levelness. There's a handfull of spaces for big-rigs (we have a 40' Class A), but I'd say the majority of the sites are better suited to tenters and smaller rigs. Fire-pit, grill and bench at each site. Pretty forest views and good space between campers. Half the sites are reservable, the others are first-come-first-serve. Potable water, but NO dumpstation here. No hookups. Pit toilets only. Overall a a primitive campground in a lovely and very relaxing forest setting. We'd definitely go back. - nina_70

A typical National Forest campground. Has no hookups and limited sites for big rigs. There are 18 walk-up sites and the rest are reservation at Recreation.gov. Has nice camp hosts and the park is nice. - nedmtnman

Can't believe this campground hasn't been reviewed more frequently. It's an excellent campground, located between Ward (8 miles away) and Allenspark (8 miles away) at Peaceful Valley. There's actually 2 campgrounds here, Camp Dick (with 40 sites) and Peaceful Valley (with 17 sites). Stayed at Camp Dick over the Memorial Day weekend 2016; rate is without senior pass discount (half price), and did require a 3 night minimum since it was a holiday.
Sites are well spaced, some in the open, some in the trees. CG is in a valley with a stream running through it, quite a few sites are streamside; there's also a cul-de-sac with some sites, in the trees and a bit more private. Each site has a fire ring, table, separate grill and tent pad. All are well maintained and cleaned regularly. CG road is paved; sites are gravel and level.
Family friendly CG, can accommodate a variety of campers/RVs. No hookups at all, and common water available, but faucets are not threaded. Firewood available on site from host. Host very friendly and efficient. - ThomInColorado

Great campground. Within 1-2 hours of Boulder/ North metro Denver. Dry camping, but we had a generator so no problem for us. No amenities, just a great get-away location. Kids had fun exploring the stream, riding bikes, etc. Will definitely return! - co_campers

Great park. Only reason we rated it an eight is because it doesn't have a full hook-up option. As a state park it is fabulous and gorgeous! - Team Lobster

This used to be our favorite but the last two trips it has gone to heck! We were here four nights and the bathrooms were NEVER cleaned. Floor was spotted and stained, TP all over, and trash can in bath never emptied. We used their showers once, and they were both (men & women) filthy. I mentioned these complaints to a ranger and was told to "be tolerant" as they are short handed. That seemed odd, as they had two host couples who never did anything that we saw but walk their dogs.
We won't be back to this state park, even though it is in a great location. - number one

Great state park camping! The scenery is breathtaking! Very similar to Mueller State Park in appearance, just smaller and closer to Denver. We stay here every year and enjoy it immensely. Too bad it was not full hookups, oh well. Watch out for the close trees when turning. We traveled the Peak to Peak highway to Estes Park this time. Worth the time and drive! We will be back! - colochoclab
