5 Parks near Elizabeth, Colorado

Casey's RV Hide-A-Way's street address is 4189 Highway 86, Elizabeth, CO 80107. If coming from the west, you will pass thru the town and the last traffic signal will be Hwy 86 and CR 17. The turn into the CG will be your second left, the first left is the day use section of Casey's Park. The entrance is paved for a few feet in, but due to fairly deep erosion it is a tight turn. The dump station is before you reach the CG loop, a somewhat long narrow tear shaped loop. Large rigs might have trouble making the full loop as it is a pretty tight turn back into the loop. Odd numbered sites on on the outside of the loop and the even numbered sites are in the loop. The electric and water are both good and up to date. This CG is in a rustic setting (you won't see or hear any mowers around here) and works for a few nights. Most units cannot dump and get back into the CG loop without leaving the Park or backing back in. Cell and TV were both good. - Bob and Inga

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

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

We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed our time there very much. After having been packed in at Garden of the Gods in Colo Springs, we had a spacious site. We could barely see our neighbors on either side. We had wildlife like squirrels, rabbits, magpies, and several deer wander through our site. The trail system is outstanding for walking and biking. The Reservoir is very nice, although we didn't boat or swim during our stay.
We weren't sure if we would like this park when we pulled in, but we would highly recommend this as a base of visitation during a stay in the Denver area. We were able to visit Boulder, Rocky Mountain National Park, and even Breckinridge. Some of those places took some driving, but they made for great day trips.
The park is quiet, at least post Labor Day and the loop design keeps it from feeling crowded. Give this one a try if you have any interest in the Denver area. - OurNextStage

Cherry Creek State Park offers a great combination of location, price, hookups, and site-size! The location is convenient, with the entrance to the park less than a mile from I-225, and plenty of stores, restaurants, theaters, etc. nearby since the park is in the middle of the suburbs. Our site in Pioneer Loop had some background traffic noise from Parker Rd but it wasn't too noticeable. The sites were plenty wide and spacious, but they don't provide much privacy since it's mostly grass between sites, and only a few trees. Most sites are "C-shaped" pull-throughs on the side of the road, but we picked a back-in which we prefer for extra privacy. Some sites looked a little un-level but ours (#47) was fine. The park is huge, with plenty of places to walk or bike, as well as a swim beach with a section our dog enjoyed visiting often. The other end of the state park has a 107-acre fenced dog park with a nice river (Cherry Creek) running right through it, which we frequented as well (it's $2/day to enter the dog park, or buy an annual pass for $20). AT&T and Verizon were both fast, plus the park has free WiFi that worked pretty well except during the busiest times (evenings and weekends). Probably our only complaint is that the park roads to get to the campground are in pretty poor condition, very bumpy and patched multiple times. Since it's a 6-8 minute drive to the camp sites once you enter the park, you're on these roads a lot. $30 for full hookups, large sites, WiFi, and a beautiful nature setting just a couple miles from "civilization" made for a great experience, and we'll definitely return! Worth noting, we stayed for 14 days, but had to make our reservation months in advance for that to be possible. The park was full almost every day. - LifeRebooted

The RV sites are great. Roomy with well functioning utilities. Very easy in/out. Paved roads. Good Wifi throughout the park. Restrooms were very dirty and nasty. - cwier

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

The only negative for this resort is how close the trees are to the interior roads. It is certainly doable to maneuver through the park but you have to be extremely careful and go very slow. The resort staff know how bad it is because they escort you to your site and point out the best way to get past the trees. If not for this one issue, this would be a perfect resort. - Mustcamp

We stayed here one night due to proximity to next destination. Use caution. Access to park somewhat difficult off and onto interstate, expect narrow pathways inside park to site. Park very full with "A" and "C" class, as well as those campers in tents and some local long-term camping. High level of interstate road noise, all night. - Yeeha

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
