3 RV Parks near Briggsdale, Colorado

This is a wonderful park to get away from it all! It is not a long drive from Boulder or Ft. Collins, but it feels very isolated and is certainly quiet. It is possible to reserve half the sites, but when we were there it was not crowded and during the week we had the place practically to ourselves. I didn't find it busy with day visitors like the last reviewer, in fact we rarely saw another soul. The only downside is that there is not much to do here, just a short hiking trail by the creek. We got a decent Verizon data signal and cell reception. - MrSunshine

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount. Be aware that, if you come in from the east, there is no gas fro 60 miles so get gas before you head out. Based on the other reviews and the location, we had expected a very isolated, quiet camping spot. It was not. It was a busy park with many day visitors and many drive through visitors. Perhaps a part of the issue was that it was Memorial Day, but even after that it was busy. It is a popular birding spot, so gets lots of visitors for birding. Sites 2 through 5 are first-come, the others can be reserved. Sites 4 & 5 and sites 6 & 7 are double sites. We got site 2, which had some shade. The sites are pleasant and are very well separated. There is some vegetation for visual separation for a few of the sites. The interior roads and sites are gravel. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. The scenery is nice with great sunrise and sunset. There is quite a bit of road noise from passing trucks, but it did not destroy the experience. We were able to get satellite with our off-the-coach dish. Verizon phone and data (4G) were strong. There is no dump station. There is fresh water and the bib does have threads for filling a tank, but it is difficult to get to and would require a long hose; it is best to arrive with full tanks and plan on carrying out all waste water. There are pit toilets, which we did not use. There are no showers. There is a short hiking trail from the campground. There is a 21 mile, driving bird trail not far from the campground. It is a pleasant drive, particularly early in the morning or late afternoon. It is good to find or download a map for the birding trail as the backcountry roads can be a bit confusing. There are camp hosts but we saw little of them and they knew very little about the area. We would definitely stay here again. - TheJim

All the previous reviewers are spot on. This is a lovely out of the way oasis. The spots are well spaced and very level. We backed to the creek and had wonderful shade. The vault toilets were very clean. There is water available, but without a threaded spigot, so come with a full tank. There is no dumpstation either. Our price reflects the golden access discount. - midcenturynana

Off the beaten path but well marked to get there. Our site was a pull through at the waters' edge. Picnic table and fire pit were in an edged gravel area. Beautiful view of the lake. However it rained and the wind blew the 3 days we were there. Staff at the Visitor's Center was very friendly. - Betsy_02

Jackson Lake is not a lake, it is a reservoir. It rests in the Colorado plains about 1.5 hours east and north of Denver. The east and south side are one long dam. Jackson Lake Campground has tent and RV camping with lakeside sights, just beware. We brought a kayak and small pontoon boat, but were unable to access water from our campsite, #008, Lakeside Campground. There is a jagged rock shore, which I didn't not attempt to climb. My 34-year-old son was able to get to the water in tennis shoes. The rocks covered about 15-20 of a slanted shore. We were told there is sand after that; a beach that shows up later in the summer (we visited early August) when the reservoir drains.
There is a marina, but we did not have a vehicle for the drive because our sight was "lakeside".
There are showers (and flush toilets), the water was hot! And strong! That is great, but the women's shower needed a spray of bleach water, the walls were moldy. Or at least, they appeared to be moldy.
Jackson seemed to be great for boaters, jet skis and fisherman. My grandson caught a huge (20"?) carp on his first throw using a kiddie rod. We weren't surprised as there are dead carp on the shore stinking up the camp. We saw at least 15. We were told the fisherman kill them and they wash up on the west side. My son moved two to avoid the smell, they were in various states of decay.
If you look at the website, the campground map shows stairs that lead to the water. These are great for kids, but hardly fun for anyone without balance as the steps are mossy and slick, made of concrete.
Saturday and Sunday were full; we arrived on Thursday and it was quiet. The spaces are far apart, great for dogs and parties. We may not go back without a boat. The west beach was okay for kids, however, we were interested in paddling. Not our cup of tea, but likely good for families and boaters. - HollyB

A bit rainy and soggy for the Memorial Day Weekend, but still a fun place! The newer showerhouse in the Sandpiper campground is better than the one in Pelican, but still not bad. Sites were fairly level and electric worked good. The lake is a popular place for watersports and when the sun came out the roads dried up nicely and everyone hit the beach. Lake was VERY full, so not much beach area to use. Be aware that storms can come up quickly in this area! - colochoclab

This is our first stay in this RV park and will stay there again when we're in the area. Check-in went smoothly and we received clear directions to our site. Bathrooms and showers were clean. - Loving Retirement

I stay in RV parks for a month at a time, so I am not entirely clear on the nightly rate. This park is a relic, nothing has been updated in at least 40 years. The electrical connections are underneath, so you have to loop your cord around the top so it doesn't fall out. It is on HWY 36 just down the road from a massive feed lot, so there will be the aroma of cow from time to time. The spaces are incredibly small and the roads are even smaller, expect to have a tough time pulling a large RV into the spaces. The staff is very nice and the price is reasonable. They do also have metered LP gas, in case you will be spending a long time in the winter. Overall, I have stayed in worse parks, but not many. - Mike Benedik

Greeley RV Park is priced right for anyone who hates themselves. The staff are insanely rude and openly mock anyone with an older RV. They won't let anyone with an RV built before 2005 stay for more than a couple of nights. Nobody wants to use the bathrooms because they look like they've never been cleaned and the campground smells like sewage. The best thing about this place will be when it gets shut down for health code and environmental violations! - WrathOfPhontex
