This is a fairly well maintained campground with helpful and friendly staff at check in. All the roads and pads are gravel. Our site was a long and level pull through with plenty of space to park our towed. Big rig access was good. Very quiet, plenty of shade trees, grass between each site with a picnic table and fire ring.The park is surrounded by beautiful mountain views, unfortunately very few of the sites take advantage of this. Long term residents occupy a significant portion of the park and generally these sites were kept tidy. The northerly portion of the park is devoted to RV storage which would look much better if it were screened from the RV sites. The bathrooms were old but clean and the laundry was small but adequate however 2 washers and I dryer were out of order while we were there. Pet friendly with doggie bags and disposal station. WiFi and cell were adequate. Satellite in the premium pull throughs presented somewhat of a challenge. Small local food stores and restaurants are close by with plenty of sightseeing. We would stay here again, it's not a destination resort but fine for a few days, however, we did think it was expensive, but this seemed to be the going rate for the area. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here in one of the premium pull-throughs. Spacious, pretty level. Escort to site, helps spot. Staff friendly and helpful. Utilities all worked well. TengoInternet was free, mixed speeds. Not the greatest for dog walking, no designated area. A little pricey, but a good spot. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. Mature trees and manicured grass in most of the sites make this a great place to stay. The views are wonderful. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Good clubhouse area and showers are available. We come here at least once a year, usually more. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very disappointed in this park. Drove out of our way to stay here; never again. Seemed like an owner was there when we checked in but was training someone who took forever. Maybe he could have stayed to help her instead of disappearing. On top of that we were supposed to get our Passport America discount. Owner or manager said no, they were in the prime season. That is not what it says in their advertisement for Passport America. It was snowing the day we stayed there and very minimal traffic with plenty of vacancies. On top of that, at our site the sewer line was so far to the rear you would have to back up with your towed vehicle to dump your tank. Find another place to stay, overpriced and disorganized. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grassy sites with full sun and some with shade. Nice grass that they keep green and watered. Laundry was good. We have stayed in a few others over the years and so far this is the best in the area. Satellite is available, but not in all sites - so make sure you ask. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for the night on the way to Estes Park. The park is very full, lots of summer folks. Check in was good. Office person was ok. We were led to our site. Site was long pull through. We stayed hooked up. It was level gravel, had a pretty good size lawn and table plus fire ring, spacing between these sites was very good. Utilities worked good, WI-FI was Tengonet, but actually worked ok. Verizon signal was weak. Cable TV channels were very clear. All in all, a very nice park with amazing mountain views. We would stay here again. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped here for 3 nights on our way over to Ouray for some Jeeping. This is very clean and well kept campground. We had a big site with lots of room and grass outside our door. There are several people here staying the entire summer, but their sites are also well maintained. We had a problem with our MH and they recommended a shop just up the road which took care of our problem in a couple of hours. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

This is a lovely park. Everything worked well, even the Tengo Internet. Cable was wonderful with 65 channels. The price seemed a bit high, and they offered no discounts, but the young lady who took my reservation told me that she couldn't guarantee a 50 amp hook up unless we had a premium site. It seems the standard sites are shared hook ups with only one 50 amp between the two. So if someone has already taken the 50 amp connection, only a 30 amp is available. One reason we came here was because this is the only park anywhere around that has cable, and after a month of nothing but ABC with its reality shows, PBS, which shows the same thing over and over, cooking channel, and Spanish channels, we were ready for something else when we came in at night after sight seeing all day. Park was immaculately clean, and we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely come back. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

We love this campground. This is probably our 4th summer visit. The new owners are as nice as the previous owners. Beautiful views of the Collegiate Peaks from many sites. Older sites have big shade trees. Gravel roads and pads. The restrooms/showers/laundry are VERY clean. This campground makes a good home base to do lots in the area: fishing, rafting, kayaking, jeeping, hot springs, and touring ghost towns. There are good restaurants in Buena Vista, Leadville, and Salida. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice park, well maintained and cared for. There has been a change in ownership, but the new owners are friendly and do a good job continuing what has always been a great place to stay. The Wi-Fi and cable work great, and there were plenty of activities within the park that allow campers to get acquainted with each other. The area is ripe for great adventure - river rafting, hiking, fishing, ATV or Jeep rides, enjoying the hot springs, or just exploring the area. Nearby is St. Elmo, Cottonwood Pass, Independence Pass, and Leadville. The 14ers are majestic - you can't go wrong with a view like that. We keep this park on our A List!!

This place is on the A-list. Nicely landscaped campsites with large mature trees and grassy areas. The site was far enough away from highway 24 so that the highway noise was not an issue. The staff was friendly and helpful. Dog friendly. The store clubhouse and shower area were clean, well stocked, and in pretty good shape. We had a very pleasant Labor Day weekend.

We were greeted by a friendly staff and checked in quickly. The deluxe sites are long and bordered on the sides by grass. The regular pull through sites are close and side by side hookups. The seasonal campers are separated from the short term sites. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. The 4 outside restrooms/showers are older and clean, but two of them were closed (for winterizing?) which made the other two pretty busy. There are two more in the clubhouse. The park is quiet and well maintained with good electric and water. We would camp here again. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an outstanding park. The sites are wide, long, and level. Site have a grassy area between them. There are fire rings and picnic tables at the sites. Cable is good with over 50 channels. The staff is great with a escort to the site and aid in getting you lined up in the site. We would stay here again. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

A nice enough park, with pretty little plantings scattered around and conveniently located to town. But it was very expensive (compared to two other places we stayed at in BV, one of which at least was much nicer in our opinion), very crowded, only has one 50 amp hookup available for two sites (so if you get there after your very close neighbor, you only get 30 amp), and there's no really good place to walk your dog. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.
