This is a very pretty, well-kept park. We just stayed here overnight so we didn't take advantage of the extra amenities. It seems to have a lot more chalets than it does RV sites. Our site was level, nicely situated, and would be very pleasant to sit outside (had it not been raining). However, there was not enough space to leave the car hooked up. There is a small dog enclosure with grass and a small dog walking loop. There is access to a narrow trail, but we didn't have an opportunity to try it. We would stay here again. - Dapper

I really don't know how to rate this place. It is so all over. The pros and cons, I guess, is the only way to do it.
Pros - the location (my lawd, the location is perfect - between Breck proper and Frisco), the roads that are paved, the extremely large lots, the views, big-rig friendly
Cons - the staff is completely, 100% clueless, the constant noise from the construction and maintenance crews (who don't adhere to the rules of no work on weekends and working well past 6 pm), the road noise from route 9, the lack of consistency between sites (they are privately owned and there are very few minimum standards), no water pressure.
We stayed in one site which had a table and covered patio (no firepit) but it seemed all squished together (also had a security camera, not fun to see on one's vacation), then in another site which had a firepit, covered patio and decent location. You'll find a ton of Prevosts and Tiffins.
They really depend on the location carrying them. The staff is truly clueless (when I asked about the construction noise, they asked if I was renting privately or from them - why does it matter? - and they seemed disappointed when I said we were renting from them) and the amount of construction is crazy due to the amount of private sale renovations. We looked at buying a site due to the location but the staff is so bad, we didn't feel confident we'd be well-served if there was ever a problem. The road noise is something we wouldn't enjoy when hosting a fire.
It will take a while to get used to the roads and map. Just know that everything surrounds the clubhouse.
Will we be back? Sure. The location can't be beat and they are good enough. But if another full-service campground comes to the area that is well-paved and has a decent staff, they'll be in trouble. They really should pay people to get decent staff, as this would've made a world of difference for us. - Kamnel

Super nice place. We stayed only one night passing through, and were very tempted to stay longer, and would have if not for prior commitments. I have not stayed in an RV park as nice overall as Tiger Run. Beautiful scenery, beautiful sites, tons of amenities, etc. We so badly wish that we could have stayed longer, as we didn't really even explore the park, clubhouse, etc. Our site was not perfectly level, but leveling up wasn't difficult. The grass was in great shape, as well as all of the landscaping throughout the park. The office staff were nice. As an owner park, there are certainly a higher percentage of people firmly in place, as opposed to frequent turnover of sites each morning. There were some high dollar rigs in this park, as well as many nice-looking cabins. I didn't see anything at all in this park that would detract from the rating. The price is high, yes. But for what it is, and where it is, that is "the going rate". We would return to this park and spend as much time as we could in the future, gladly. Tiger Run is in my top 2 of RV parks visited in my travels, mainly because of how picturesque it is. - KeystoneTT

Great dry campsite. Nice space between sites. New trees growing back. Large level sites all with mountain views, some also have lake views. - Kiwijo

This campground in the White River National Forest near Dillon, Co. look over Lake Dillon and is surrounded my mountains. It's just beautiful. This is a dry camping area which has water near the entrance, spacious gravel sites with fire ring but there isn't a dump site on the campgrounds. - Jim Butler

Very nice dry camping spot. There is a loop with electric but you need to reserve in advance if you want a shot at one of those. Location is excellent. - 4redwings

We stayed in the Heaton Bay for its proximity to the trail rides in the area. Close to I-70 but relatively quiet. If you're looking for 5 star accommodations this is not it, But if looking for a convenient place you can't beat it in the area for the price. Adequate space between sites, nice views and close to town. If you need the Hilton stay in Denver. We will return. Asphalt surface pad. - birdbrains

Nice park as others said, but be aware there is NO sign on Dillon Dam Road. You can see the sign about 100' down the road as you pass it up. There is a turn-around at the dam but it is tight for a 45' motorhome. And we were in site C-27 that is supposed to be 65' but my 45' motorhome barely fits, and the site is too narrow to fit my truck alongside the motorhome. So it is parked in overflow parking about 1/4 mile walk. - folivier

There is no water, so bring your own. There are a few campsites right by the river, which provided a nice white noise. But you can hear the interstate from the campsites not by the river. Do not take a trailer into the upper loop -- there is no sign warning you not to do so, and there is no room to turn around. - Prof Dan

Stayed here twice for a week each time this summer while doing business in Vail. Price is with Access Pass; otherwise, $20 a night+ reservation fee. The only show in town for camping. It is about a 10-12 minute drive to the Vail center village. We have a 32 ft RV, and this campground will only accommodate a few rigs that size. Make reservations. It is often full in the summer. At the mouth of a beautiful canyon in the forest, with rushing Gore creek drowning out a lot of the hwy noise from I-70 1/2 mile away. Sites are generally not level, but what else is new. Somehow I was able to get satellite for TV both times I was there, even though there are a lot of trees. Verizon 4G 2-3 bars, data and voice worked fine. USFS restrooms very clean. Nice host, most sites have decent privacy. Pretty A very nice USFS campground. - snowave

There are not many campgrounds near Vail but we had read about a first come, first served National Forest Campground just east of town called Gore Creek. As we had our choice of sites when we arrived and settled in easily. The sites are large and private. There are no services other than pit toilets. We arrived under fire restrictions so no camp fires here (although usually, that is not a problem). You can hear the road noise from I-70 faintly but it’s quiet enough that the wind in the aspen trees drowns it out. It was a great spot to stay near Vail and we would definitely stop here again. There is no Wi-Fi but the 3G signal was strong. - L. Miller

A "minimal" park behind the Motel. We camped here while visiting friends in the area, so we were very happy with the facilities. Electric and water were fine. Pull through site with small grassy area with picnic table. Small, young trees at each site provided some privacy. Dogs were welcome, but not much room to walk. Took ours to the fairgrounds about a block away. Met our needs and certainly the best value in the area. - User2112

Looks like 10 hookup sites, a small lawn for 2-3 tents and small area for dry camping. Not much of a park but "the only game in town". The motel claimed to have WiFi, but we were unable to connect at any time during our stay. No laundry. Most sites are pull-throughs. Not a very attractive park, but we stayed 2 weeks while scouting the area, so shouldn't complain too loudly. - camprats

Very basic small park. Several permanent residents. Pull through was easy to get into. We did have to ask the maid to move car to leave, as she parked in front of us. - paxton

We have stayed at MiddleFork RV twice over the past three years. It is by far the most convenient place for campers and close to all of the scenic sites. There is an awesome grocery store nearby. The management is great and are very accommodating. If we ever come back to FairPlay we will definitely stay at Middle Fork again. - Aames

Everything is pretty much the same as it was two years ago (see my previous review) except that they have raised the weekly and monthly rates to ridiculous extremes. Nightly rate isn't so bad, but I won't be able to be a monthly resident ever again. - Old Mountain Man

Rated 8 instead of 10 because there is only one thing to do here (well, two if you're a fisherman): pan for gold. If you're not into gold panning you might not like this place! However, the tourist attractions in town would be walking distance at sea level. At nearly ten thousand feet, it may or may not be walking distance for you. The park is new, staff is friendly & knowledgeable, sites are reasonably level, bathroom seems clean (but I didn't use it), etc. but there are no shade trees, no playground/rec room, not even any picnic tables at the sites. You pan for gold. And there is plenty of gold there. I get gold in every pan full of dirt, which has never happened to me anywhere else I've prospected. They have pans, classifiers, etc. around for your use if you're a greenhorn, plus gold panning supplies (pans, sniffer bottles, vials, etc.) for sale at the office. I have lost track of the number of times I've camped here this season, but it's been quite a lot. P.S. The trout are HUGE. - Old Mountain Man

Resort is located about 24 miles south of Breckenridge. Fairplay is a small, friendly former mining town and offers a few good restaurants and an interesting historic downtown. Whispering Aspen is located in town and has modular cabins, park models, and RV sites for sale and rent. Sites are large with concrete pads, but could use a some additional landscaping. Staff is extremely friendly and easy to get along with. The resort offers a clubhouse with a lounge, pool table, and outdoor tennis courts. A nice getaway and rural alternative to Tiger Run in Breckenridge. - Scottx2

Absolutely beautiful park, one of the most scenic I've been to in Colorado. Camped in July, mid 30's at night and low 70's during the day. Very spacious sites. Highly recommend a lakeside site. Located in a shaded lodgepole forest, along Turquoise Lake. Elevation is 10,000 feet. Entrance road is narrow but had no problems towing my 25 ft 5th wheel. Limited water available, no electric or sewer hookups but there is a dump station at the park. - Colorado Camper

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient to Leadville and had full hookups. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed here on weeknights in September.
This campground met our needs. It's in downtown Leadville and walking distance from stores, restaurants, museums. It has full hookups. The sites are small and close together and all in full sun. Most are level. The grounds are clean. The manager was friendly and helpful. The free wifi was not usable. High speed wifi is available for $2 a day. Verizon and ATT coverage is adequate. - dsvt

Like others have said, don't judge a book by its cover. I was a little skeptical when I saw the sites. It looks like a gravel parking lot but the sites were fairly level. There is not much space between units and one unit opens to the one next to them. Our neighbors were very nice and we enjoyed talking with them. It is right on the edge of town and we walked to restaurants, stores, and the museums.
Again, the bathhouse and laundry doesn't look like much but they were clean. I didn't use them but I try to check them out anyway. The WIFI worked great for us and there is a grill at each site (a nice touch). We did self check-in and then tracked down the owner/manager, who was very nice. - CraftCrazy

We stayed 4 nights to Jeep and day trips in the area. Very central location with lots of outdoor activities available. The campground is located at the edge of town and you can walk into town easily from campground. Initial impression when you drive up may not be good but the gravel sites were level and water, electric, sewer all worked well. Very good cable TV channel selection. Did not use their Wi-Fi. Rudy the owner was eager to help. Overall, this was a good, quiet place for us to stay. If you're expecting a plush campground with lots of activities, this is not it. This is our second visit and would use it again. - birdbrains
