5 Parks near Elizabeth, Colorado
Sep 2014 - $30.00
This park is located in the outskirts of old town Elizabeth. There is only a P.O. box, no street address on the website for the park. Reservations can be made online at caseysrvhideaway.com. I called several times to try to find an address, but only received a call back once we had found our way to the park and gotten settled. Unfortunately, I don't recall the street address. Easy access for larger rigs. Entire park is dirt/gravel. Sites are of varying sizes, some back-ins, some pull-throughs. Nice spacing between sites and the park is laid out such that the sites are not all side by side. Electric and water at sites, dump station at entrance to park. There are no other amenities. Lots of trees in the park. Verizon data/cell service was good. There seemed to be a number of semi-permanents in the park, most of whom did not pick up after their pets. There is not a fenced dog area, but there's plenty of space within the park and adjacent areas for walking pets. Deer visited the park daily. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

As others have mentioned, the park is quiet, clean and shady. And, as mentioned, there are no facilities in the park. I rated this park 5 for the lack of facilities and price. I personally think the cost/services ratio makes this park considerably overpriced. - Deck & Margot

Stayed here for a week. This is a public park with what I call "Bare Bones" facilities. Water & Electric at all sites including 20/30/50 amp service and excellent water pressure. Many trees for shade. Drive is gravel, but not dusty. Sites themselves are roomy and clean but not all fit a big rig. The town is very close. Access is easy. Operator of park lives close by and is readily available. No conveniences, yet. A small meeting building is nearly finished but no other structures. No showers/laundries/pools, etc. Bare Bones, but VERY QUIET, with wondering deer. There is a small city park adjacent, but does not generate any problems. Close to Denver & "Burbs" on SE section. Easy access to I-25 & I-70 I will stay here again. - rahangman

Meh! I mean for the money they charge I just expect more. I spent $60.00 a night for an "electric deluxe site" I don't know what was deluxe about it, no sewer, no water and not level, plus we were in a section that seemed more like overflow camping then a part of the campground. The water was the main issue for me since I hadn't topped my fresh tank and didn't realize I didn't have water until I was completely set up. (Note to self; look at hookups first thing) they do have a hose at the check in station to use but as I said I didn't know this so I used the old 5 gallon jug to get water in it. My real beef with it is their website should have better information about site specific amenities. Like the fire ring we had but didn't know about until we got there, so instead of bringing our own wood we spent $6.50 a bundle for theirs. Overall upkeep of the park was marginal at best the ball pit was a sandbox, the pool was small and crowded and a relic. The field of dreams was an overgrown field. The swimming hole I liked but it too needed the sticker bushes around it taken out an a better way to get to the top of the slide. The staff was very friendly and helpful and my grandkids loved the activities but we weren't impressed. - Skirby

Disgusting excuse for an RV Park. Sights not level, often in the extreme. Mud, gravel, extremely steep hills complete the scene. We are on top of a hill far from showers or rest room. Unimproved overpriced sad facility. Few alternatives, the place is full. This park should be avoided. - bossdoug

Park on edge of railroad tracks & I 25. Noisy all night! Very hilly campground on side of foothill. Sites vary but very few are level. A family oriented park so lots of kids driving golf carts & moving about. WiFi was OK but slow.
If you must stay in that area, pick a site up the hillside but check it out first! - Kasey11

This is a very nice State Park located in an otherwise urban area. The park is large with lots to do. Campground itself appears to be very well run. Lots of camp hosts going about keeping the place clean and orderly. Our paved site was absolutely level. All utilities worked very well with the exception of the WiFi. Once again we have an overburdened public network where the signal strength is adequate but the throughput is deplorable. I used my Verizon phone hotspot. We stayed here for three nights visiting family in the area. We would stay here again. - Airstreamers

Booked this site 6 months in advance: #14, backed up to woods. Lots of privacy but terrible mosquitos! They don't spray either. Its the woods! Won't park in woods again in this season! Got bit quite a bit. Bought a screen tent which helped. Got many TV channels here even in shade trees surround trailer.
Had great ranger program one night, with wild wolf, deer roaming 10 ft from trailers every day with twin fawns. Beautiful.
Overall swim beach is great: picnic areas all over beach with grills. Lots of trails for the grandkids and I could go on. My scooter ran great on trails.
There is no playground in the camping area, really need to build one for all the children who camp here.
Have to cross a busy road in the park to get to the swim beach where the playground is. Laundry is where the showers are, handy. Was a quiet area, busy traffic outside park. No fires allowed. WiFi is spotty.
We enjoyed our stay. - Jane-James

We have stayed here in the past and everything is nice and it is a State Park with full hookups. The only thing that was of concern was that they had not mowed the grass in quite some time. The rest of the park is very well maintained. - PackerFanRick

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

We enjoyed our stay at this campground very much. There are nice concrete pads with full hookups. Shade is pretty much non existent so getting your satellite to connect is easy. What we really appreciated was the WYFI service. With a $50 refundable deposit you received your own MYFI unit with unlimited data. We have never encountered this before and were very pleased with this great service.
Camphost was very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Reservations in the summer are a good idea. The campground was very busy throughout our stay with little availability.
Grass is very shaggy around your sites but remember this is a high desert area.
We would definitely stay here again. - Wgcamper

We just spent 3 weeks at Buckley Famcamp, and enjoyed our stay. The Famcamp is located away from the city and majority of the base with quick access to the base facilities. It is quiet except for the "sounds of freedom", F-16s, taking off and buzzing the runway which is located right across the street. Don't get me wrong, we loved hearing and seeing them and took many great pics! Bath/restroom facilities appeared clean, we did not use them. Sites are level. Although there were some families with children in the Famcamp they were quite and not bothersome. Over all we really liked this campground and will use it again if we return to the Denver area. Now the not so positive: the campground is run by MWR and has NO emphasis placed on it from the base/MWR commanders consequently MWR employees pay no attention. There were 5 sites with broken water pipes that have not been repaired and no one shows any signs of wanting to repair them. The streets within the Famcamp are narrow, not enough maneuver space when you must turn corners, as evidenced by the mud on the roads and ruts in the grass areas. At least one site is all but impossible to get into even with a small trailer due to the sites positioning and the narrow roads. The Famcamp sits on a hill and many of the sites are low, when it rains they retain water. Mowing happens only before holidays so the grass was high, due to all of the rain. They mowed just before Memorial day weekend and brought a street sweeper in and cleaned off the interior roads. What a difference! - Harley Oma

A well-maintained park, but the roads were narrow and the sites were not very roomy. The wooded sites could be very tricky to get into. The "wi-fi lounge" was a laugh. It was the only place you could get wi-fi, other than at the office, and even then it was as slow as dial-up and often disconnected. She explained it goes thru their phone line and is always like that, which is way under what is needed for a park this size. - pandcallen

Our stay here was wonderful. Everything was clean and well cared for. We especially enjoyed the pool! They have a variety of activities for all ages. The location is convenient to area sights. The owners and staff here are exceptional. We had axle problems and everyone was kind, helpful and understanding to our situation. I definitely would recommend this campground! - Ginny and Bruce

This campground has an excellent staff. Pleasant, helpful, and always greeted us with a smile. The grounds are well-maintained and clean. Laundry room is clean, reasonably-priced with machines that work well. Bathrooms and showers are clean and roomy. Located besides I-25, there is road noise, though the grounds are filled with many trees that help the atmosphere immensely. - AmyOros
