16 RV Parks near Brighton, Colorado
Aug 2014 - $20.00
We found a gem, but... It is now closed while the county makes rules for the campground. On the northeast side of Denver, we arrived about 8pm. Looking for a stop-over site for 1 night, we opted to avoid the other tacky run-down campgrounds along I-76. We chose to drive 6 miles for a quiet night. Arriving at the clean park/fairgrounds we looked for a sign to find the camp sites. We did find the camping locations using the internet. Parking on concrete and blacktop, all sites were very close together parking-lot-style and were marked "reserved" or do NOT park here. Although their website http://www.co.adams.co.us/index.aspx?NID=396 lists 4 separate camping sites, there is a 5th new camping area with an additional 4 sites with 50 amp and 30 amp hook-ups (no water). The nice sites are across the street - East - from sites 1-8. These new sites back up to the green park surrounding the Mann/Nyholt Lake. The area is gravel and almost level. A picnic shelter is at one end of the new sites. No water at these new sites. Verizon wifi was strong. Although no one from the county administration building was around to help us find a site, a local lady was very helpful. There were no activities the night that we stayed, and it was very peaceful. No late registration box available, so we paid in the morning before leaving. No Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We would return, but call first to be sure it is again open. - AluminumCloud

This is basically a place to overnight, it is not a destination. Being a fairgrounds, the sites are meant to oblige 4H and rodeo campers who need to be near their livestock, but can be used by anyone where there are no events scheduled. There is an excellent park only a few hundred yards to the east, and good fishing in the lakes there. There is no shade and all RV's must use the dump station which is in the wrong location on the map given to you at check-in. Also, the woman who handles the bookings can be very cranky. A good place to park for us since we were visiting family nearby, and very inexpensive. - je23dr13

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We had 30 amp service and water. The first two nights were very quiet. Only one other RV. On night three, ten rigs arrived between 10 p.m. and midnight. They were part of the work crew setting up for an event at the fairgrounds. The place got very busy. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so plan your arrival accordingly or call ahead. Staff was super to work with. - Traveller101

I would give this "campground" zero stars if I could! My husband and I were headed to Wyoming, then on to the Canadian Rockies, when we ended up needed to get our transmission looked at. The nearest facility that would even look at our motor home was near Denver, so we needed a place to stay for one night. There are very few campgrounds in the Denver area, and even fewer that had a space last minute. I called Barr Lake while we were en route. The woman who answered the phone said she was about to leave for the day, but would reserve a spot for us, we could do a self check in. Well, after driving and driving, we finally found the place around 6pm or so. I walked to the office, which was closed, but noted that our name was assigned a spot. I should back up and say that we were NOT impressed with the looks of this place before we even pulled in! As another reviewer mentioned, this looks like a permanent trailer park, with lots of junk laying around. We drove thru the place and could hardly believe how bad it was. After 11 years of rv-ing, this is honestly the worst "campground" we have ever seen! The junk was bad enough, but what really turned us off were the people wandering around the place, who looked to be on drugs, and/or were drug dealers. Very creepy place.
We'd been driving all day and were beat, but did NOT want to stay here. We found the site we'd been assigned to, then noticed that the electrical box had a pad lock on it! How on earth were we supposed to hook up? This dump wanted $40 bucks a night, plus an extra $2.00 per night for our little puppy (which is a joke!). We were so creeped out by this place we decided not to stay, it just did not feel safe! Ended up spending the night in a Walmart parking lot. The first time we've ever done that before. Certainly not comfortable or ideal, but it was 1,000 times better than Barr Lake! Oh, and the "camground" was also right next to a busy expressway and railroad track! - fly girl

Worse experience with a campground yet. Came to work a job, I was told $320 over the phone, drove 1200 miles and when I arrived was told $400 a week, almost 1600 a month. Bathrooms and showers run down and nasty. No pool. No WiFi. No phone service. 3 sewer hook ups at every spot, none that fit normal camper hook up so sewer runs all over the ground and camper or 5 ft apart. Trashy park. Stayed 2 nights and decided to leave, couldn't have paid me enough to stay, she also refused to refund the money for remaining 5 nights even though we didn't stay. - DJN

Tacky is about the best you can say. You get a bare site with electric, water, and sewer--and nothing else. No cable (lots of broadcast channels), no wifi. The best thing here is its proximity to the light rail train, the RTD A line; $5.20 round trip to downtown in a 15-minute ride. - Savvy_Granny

The worst place in the country. Stayed here 1 year for work because nowhere else to stay in the area. Very dirty, combat cockroaches, bedbugs, earwigs and feral cats. Raised rent to $1100 for 28 days. Truck broken into 5 times. Reported to management and they told me that it's not their problem. Very rude!!! Gypsies that don't watch their children so they run wild everywhere. No WiFi. This place is a ghetto slum and management is slum lords that don't care and told me so to my face. Manager will ride around in golf cart and stare at me. Very very uncomfortable. If possible Do Not Stay Here! Police will not even investigate the break ins. Office is dirty. The manager is very rude. - traveling today

This park is strickly for Elks Club members and their guests only. A very nice park with 40 sites. 50 amps FHU $20, 30 amp FHU $18. Water and electric only $16. They say they have a dump station. The lounge is very nice and they have lunches and dinners. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area. - kathiecarlson

I cannot believe this place. We reserved it because it is billed as the only RV Park in the city of Denver. We wanted to be close to downtown, so visit the mint, and museums. Although the park itself is reasonably clean, the neighborhood is horrible. I felt like I was staying in an inner city ghetto. Its on a major street, sirens constantly all night, and hookers walking the park! They actually knocked on our door and offered, well, you can figure that out! We didn't have a car, and when we walked a few blocks to a liquor store, we were approached by someone offering to sell us marijuana, and by a beggar. We had breakfast one morning at a nearby restaurant, where we met a local cop. From her, I learned that the owner of the RV Park also owns the run down, seedy motels and trailer houses surrounding it, and is uncooperative with law enforcement. Her comment was, "Why in the world is someone like you, staying at that dump?" Absolutely avoid this place at all costs. - Mallory

Good news: Close to Hyland Hill's Waterworld. Bad news: More squatters than RV'ers. Make sure you lock everything as it sounded like the police were busy enough in this area. - dpthdiver

A big disappointment given the lovely pictures on their website. The neighborhood is crime central. I witnessed the coke machine being stolen in the middle of the night. I will not return. - BobbieM

We stayed in the full hookup section right on one of the ponds, which gave us beautiful sunset views. There was a shelter over the picnic table which provided shade and wind protection, a very nice feature. The site was an easy level pull-thru. There are cleared trails around every pond, many of which interconnect, providing very convenient dog walking. Both Denver and Boulder are under an hour drives. There is an additional day use fee of $6/day plus a $10 reservation fee but it is still a very good value. We really enjoyed our stay here. - Dapper

We stayed in the newer, full hookup section, so this review is specific to that area. First the good. Very nice large sites with nice spacing between them. The way the campground is organized in large loops mean you aren't looking out toward close neighbors and have some really nice views from your patio area. Long, very wide, and flat concrete pads which also include concrete around the electric pedestal and water/sewer hookups (no mud!). Really decent price for full hookups. Any of the sites in the full hookup section are very big rig friendly. You can't go wrong with any, but when selecting your site online, try to find one further from the highway and off the main gravel campground road. Also, during warmer months, take into account orientation so you get afternoon shade from your rig. The bad...close to busy highway so you get consistent, pretty loud highway noise. The roads in the newer section are all very, very dusty gravel so there is a lot of dust kicked up any time anyone drives through. No shade other from your rig or site shelter. A few more dings...the dumpster and recycling can were always full. No dog waste stations anywhere in park. Nice short walking paths around the ponds. - Jerry and Betsy

This may not be the most attractive state park around, but it does have a lot going for it. Full hookups for $30, very large, spacious sites, plenty of places to walk with trails around most of the many small lakes, excellent Verizon and AT&T coverage, and a reasonable drive to Longmont and Boulder. Sites are completely level concrete, with a covered gravel picnic area. When outside we can hear the interstate but it's far enough to not be loud or bothersome. The full-hookup section is mostly wide open with few, if any, trees, and is all dirt roads so our car was a mess, and when walking our dog outside we had to deal with lots of dust when other cars drove by. The electric-only section of the campground has paved roads, many mature trees, and is much prettier. We had to deal with some mosquitoes but it wasn't bad compared to some other spots we've camped recently. We'll return in the future to spend more time exploring the Boulder area. - LifeRebooted

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

One of the best FamCamps I've had the pleasure of using. This is attested to by the long lead time for reservations. You can not reserve more than 30 days in advance, wait to 29 or 28 and you likely won't get in.
The campground and spaces are spacious, clean and for a Military Base very quiet. Many pull through and back in sites, first come first served so arrive early on your reserved date to get the best sites. Most sites have sloped entrance / exit, but the pads are flat & level.
They have a long term issue with water in the campground so the normal $24 rate was reduced to $10. - OpaS

38 hookups, back-in and drive thru.
Can make reservations 30 day in advance with Outdoor Rec. (720) 847-6100/6853. There are 2 gates. Enter Mississippi gate. From 6th St turn onto Airport, then Alameda Pkwy to Mississippi. After entering gate go straight on S. Aspen and make left turn at 3rd Stop Sign to FamCamp. Pick your open site and park. After drive to Outdoor Rec at bldg 1022 on S. Aspen to register. Free wifi avail. - DoggyDaddy

We came in after hours without a reservation. The camp host's wife pointed out a few open pads to select from. The following morning we registered at the MWR office which is about 3 miles away. The pads are excellent concrete with full hook-ups. No shade. No view. There was an adjacent grassy area where bombing range target vehicles are stored, that was a good place to let my dog run off lease. It was fun watching F-16s take off close by. - Tidy Boy

This may be a very nice park in the future, but it is in the developmental stage! We had called 45 days previously for reservations. As we were getting close, we called around 11:45 AM to see if anyone would be in the "office" during the lunch hour. No answer; left message and telephone number. Arrived around 1 pm and had reservations for two nights (made on June 24); no one there (only "office" was an RV with flat tires) so we called campground number again and left another message. Additionally, there were four other names and numbers on a big board in front of RV so we called all of them and left messages. One gentleman called me back and said they were out of town and a lady was on duty. Left another message for her and explained what the gentleman said to me.
We saw an empty spot (only one) so assumed it was ours and set up. (It was the only empty spot) No one came back that night and no one called. No one called on Monday. Around 6:25 pm a woman showed up at our RV site, presumably the lady I called. Apparently, they had no record of our calling and making a reservation, and she said she did not get any voice mail messages either. Thankfully, no one needed our spot Monday evening so we paid $35/night (very pricey for this new park without laundry facilities or office). FYI, all but one site are for long-term campers. That one site was full for a week (we had already talked with them to see what they knew about checking in). Hopefully, they will have short-term camp sites sometime in the future.
It is VERY close to railroad tracks and they are VERY ACTIVE day and night. Long-term campers are workers and start their diesel engines early; i.e., 5:30 am.
On the plus side for this RV Park, these are large, long RV sites; mostly pull thru sites; fairly good WIFI and cell service; no problem with satellites since no trees.
If you are looking for a short term stay, look elsewhere. We would not stay here again. - vmi1962

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a very new camp ground and is still under construction. It is off to a good start with well laid out parking on crushed asphalt (I think it will be paved in the future). Sites are long & pretty level. Parking is back side to back side near your neighbor with hook ups between for both of you, while your front door side has plenty of space for a table. It appears the owners are working on the spaces in between to provide tables, but there weren't tables during our stay. No bathroom / shower house right now, but there are some portapotties. It is near a busy train track but the trains rarely blow their horns. It's mostly just the rumble you'll hear, which some folks may like. Overall, this place has good potential; and is an affordable place to stay while exploring the Denver area. My rating is based on it being a good place to park if you are self contained and don't expect 'resort' entertainments. - Rambling Registrar

This is an ongoing project, so during our time of stay it was just a field with a bunch of RV spaces. The owners are super friendly, they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The water hook-ups are top-notch and each site has both a 30 & 50 hook-up. There was no cable, but they offered free wifi and our antenna picked up over 30 local channels. They are constantly working to improve the place. The ''yards'' are huge! The way they have this place designed is genius. Each camper is back-to-back giving each lot a giant yard. There is a train track pretty close, BUT to our surprise it didn't bother us a bit. They don't blow a horn right by the park, and most of the time we never knew they were passing unless we were outside. They don't have any facilities, but like I said- they are just getting this place up and running so I'm sure in the future they'll have a lot more amenities. We were in the area for work and it was next to impossible trying to find an open lot in nearby cities. We stumbled across this little gem and we're glad we did! The town of Keenesburg is pretty small, but they have pretty much whatever you need (a little grocery store, dollar store, laundromat, auto parts, a few restaurants, ect.) If we have to go back to this region for work, we will definitely be giving the manager a call to reserve us a space! They have weekly rates as well as extended stay (monthly). Bottom line, these guys are good people.
Denver is about 30-40 minutes away

Very easy access to I-70. Very close to mountains. Excellent showers were actually individual restrooms with plenty of room and privacy. Excellent washers/dryers. Lovely ladies in the office. Park is located next door to a park that has playground equipment and a lake. Gate between RV park and park is open 24/7. Excellent trails for biking and walking pets. The absolute only negative note is that wifi was very very poor. - Mary Sch

Left Cherry Creek State Park to stay here while visiting some friends in the Denver area. I only stayed in this park because of the location. Staff was so very nice on the phone but park needs major update. Large gravel rv park, very dusty, with no markings for sites. Poles rise up for the ground with a number on them. My sewer cover was a rock. Mostly full timers who park their trucks, cars and tow vehicles in the driveway There is no room for your tow vehicle. I was very lucky that after my second day, the rv in front of me left, giving me a way out. Otherwise I would have had to go to the office to get people to move their vehicles. I will NOT stay here again. Overpriced for what you get but the location was good for my stay. - tomatohead

We stayed overnight and were pleased with the quality of the park. Our site was extremely quiet and overlooked the park next door. Our only complaint WiFi did not work as advertised. - housecar
