Made my reservation (and paid for the whole stay in advance) for a premium 50Amp pull through. Surprise #1: When I arrived I had to disconnect to get in the site. Surprise #2: This was a shared pedestal site, so my neighbor was 3 feet away. Surprise #3: There was only one 50Amp receptacle and it was occupied. Owner said 50A is first come, first served but the site using the 50A was a permanent. Owner was willing to sell me a "cheater box" so I could use the two 30 Amps as a 50A (illegal in many states). Owner refused to move me citing "scheduling difficulties". Also had some water pressure issues, and only half the laundry machines worked. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is very well kept and maintained well but the laundry needs some attention. The owners live on site and are very friendly and they schedule several activities such as an occasional breakfast and game night, etc. Overall Snowy Peaks is a well run nice park with friendly staff and guests. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice clean park. Clean, attractive, private restrooms and showers. Quiet. Spacious spaces with grassy lawns, new picnic tables, decorative fire ring. Good cable and Wi-Fi. Very pleased with the park. Best in Buena Vista. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our overall impression was of a friendly, well run, well maintained and clean RV Park. Gravel sites were level. Lots of trees and grass between the sites that was kept green. Good location on the edge of the town with access to many outdoor activities. Nice views. It's hard to beat the weather. Warm days and cool nights. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. There are only four and they are unisex, but I never had a problem. The only drawback is that the sites are a little to close. But overall, a great RV Park.

This park is the best park I have ever stayed in. Everything was clean and well maintained. The employees went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. The sites are close together but that did not matter, this way you make new friends. The trees are mature and the grass was watered several time in the week we were there and mowed when it needed to be. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

We had a lovely stay here to explore the Buena Vista and Leadville area. We were in one of the premium sites. Very long pull through, plenty of space for our 33' motorhome and jeep and a very nice amount of space between rigs with lovely grass and a fire ring (which we did not use), Our site, 45, had one of the biggest trees on property which provided nice shade and was well trimmed such that we easily drove our rig under it. The only downfall was the park is very close to the highway so there is lots of traffic noise.

The staff was super friendly, we had an issue with our rig that forced us to extend one night while waiting for a part to be delivered. They were very accommodating and humored my many calls while we were out an about to see if the mail had been delivered yet. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
