18 RV Parks near Englewood, Colorado
Jul 2018 - $66.00
I stayed at South Park twice in a two week period and I will NEVER stay there again.
A Walmart parking lot would be a much better place than here.
Both times I was treated rudely by the groundskeepers and swore at twice by them!
And, when I went to the office to ask for one more night they brought up my reservation on the office computer, then said..."Sorry, we are all booked up until next spring!"
So I said, "Well, I guess I have to leave in the morning.", to which the park manager said "Yup!"
Well, at my next stop the very next night I was looking at my paperwork and realized that I had indeed already paid for that night...but they just let me go and still haven't refunded me for the extra night they charged me for.
I have several friends that live there and have been told that since I left 3 1/2 weeks ago nobody has been in the site I was in both times.
The park is very nice, laundry facilities are good and the swimming pool is awesome, but the RV spaces are so close and tight to back into, plus there are cars and trucks parked in the street that makes backing into the sites even more difficult since the sites are barely long enough for the RV's, let alone the tow vehicle.
30 amp plug was loose and had to use a padlock to hold my surge protector plug from falling out. Found out later that it is against park rules to padlock the power pole.
Plus, the pool and laundry room closes at 8 pm...hardly enough time for travelers to take advantage of these amenities.
It is almost like they really don't want RV'ers to stop there...only year round residents! - John_D

The only thing this place has going for it is their location. Staff are rude, people are rude, the facilities are dirty and the place has gone to hell in a hand-basket. I wonder if the owners truly know what's going on. - Randall S

May 6 - 12, 2018 This park is located in a seedier part of town. The first night there there gun shots rang out, which made you want to duck and cover. The facilities at the park are dirty and poorly maintained. The sites are not level and some just have mud or piles of rocks around the sites. The park manager is a poor excuse for a manager. He has no people skills and destroys personal property without notice to the owners. If you interact with him about your property he destroyed, his best answer is "it is none of your business" and he is going to call the cops. He also tells you to leave if don't like it. We left early and there was no refund. You have been warned about this park. Go there at your own risk. - Winniebee

We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

This park is truly a hidden gem! We never expected to have a campground in the city where you can't even see the city. This is a huge city park with lots and lots to do in it. They have horses, boat rentals, beach, lots of trails and biking. Electric only sites. Good cell coverage. The sites are HUGE. Easy to get to from C-470 There is a little noise from the C-470 traffic, but we didn't notice it inside. No shade. We would definitely stay here again. - jacknpeg

Our site was very spacious and level. The road is paved and well maintained. It is an easy ride into Denver. 2600 acres just outside a big city -- great combination. The down side is if you have dogs, which we do. There isn't really any grass; it is brush, which is cut back for the sites. My dogs didn't like walking on it. There is also some foxtail around, which can be dangerous for a dog if it gets in its eye or nose, so you have to be careful. Still, it's a terrific value and we would definitely return. - Dapper

Wide gravel site. All interior roads paved and well maintained. Dump station and water fill station easily accessible to 45' motor home. Dumpsters scattered throughout park. - blumarlin

Chatfield is one of our favorites in the US. Paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. The work campers rake the rocks and clean the sites after each camper leaves. We did not use restrooms. WiFi worked great the entire two weeks we were there. Lots of OTA channels and wide open to receive satellite. Strong Verizon signal. D loop is very big rig friendly. Sites are large and offer some privacy. As others have mentioned there is a construction project going on to increase the water level of the reservoir. It doesn't really affect the campground and we never heard it but when going out the west entrance you do drive through it. Bigger rigs must enter on the east side but that is stated in your confirmation. Huge dog park that you can drive to. We'll be back. - thekites

This is a great park. Hard to believe it is so handy to Denver. Paved roads. Concrete pad sites. Picnic table. Fire ring. Sites are well spaced apart by natural environment. Great family destination for a weekend of camping. Great for overnight stay if passing through Denver. Very big rig friendly. Very well maintained park. Will definitely return. - WinnMac

For us, Chatfield is a close destination and we regularly use it for quick weekend camping. Our particular site, #040, was very nice with lots of room! Chatfield is undergoing a makeover for the next 3 years (approx.) so some of the activities will be disrupted. The West entrance to the park has limited access and is used for the North boat ramp and off-leash dog area only. This is due to the access road being diverted. Campers must use the south "Plum Creek" entrance off Roxborough Road. Best route is Santa Fe to Titan Rd. Google it. The Water Reallocation Project will raise the reservoir by approx. 12 feet. Some wetlands areas will be lost. Main Marina will be moved to the east cove probably within 18 months. - colochoclab

Fairly quiet location. Sites are close together so if you have a bunch of slides on both sides and use your awning you aren't going to be happy. Level gravel site. - mrracechaser

We rolled up midweek with no reservations. The amount of paperwork to get a site was crazy. DL, registration, proof of insurance. Then we had to be "escorted" to the pull thru 30 amp site. It must have taken nearly an hour to get from the gate to the site. The site is narrow and water, electric only. Gravel and right on top of the neighbors. - Brian n Barbara

Easy highway access if you need a place to stay in Denver area. We had a 50 amp electric and water asphalt back-in site. Sites 8 - 12 are angled the wrong way for a driver's side back in and not that long. Sites 1 - 7 are straight back-ins and much longer sites. Sites would be cramped if all were full. Turn around dump station at end of road. Nice walking/bike path. The restrooms were the highlight - very clean and brightly lit and the showers were coded private stalls, very clean, warm, well-lit and hot water. - Our Rolling Home

This place is great for location to hiking trails but a little pricey. The site pads are concrete and level but the other areas of the site is inclined so having a level spot for chairs, grills, and tables is a challenge. - utex61

As a last resort, as all the preferred area sites were booked, we got the last site (K3) at Dakota Ridge. Sites are very close together and open. No privacy at all. But worst, the sites are not level. K3 was pitched about 10º side to side. I tried about 10 times at different locations on the site to level but my computerized leveling system kept failing with excess slope, even with the rear wheel about 5" off the ground. I asked the owners for help and they sent 2 broken pieces of 2x4, which still did not help. When I told them about the slope, they said nothing in Golden is level. Hmmm. Had to leave. - nrb

Park has changed hands to RV Inn as management company but based on experience at another RV Inn property, this is not the problem. Management has terrible attitude and that trickles down to other employees. We stayed here in 2014 and service was great. First about the park. Sites are very tight for us in 40 ft fifth wheel. We would have hit another rig with tail swing if we had blindly followed the escort cart. My wife spotted so we avoided that. Fifth wheel that came in four days later followed the escort vehicle and did hit another rig with tail swing and split back cap open. Sites are short and close. Roads are very tight. We noticed picnic area up the side of the hill closed and overgrown, dump station closed, hot tub closed, dumpsters pad locked shut so you couldn't use them at your leisure, and damage to exterior of office that was addressed with duct tape. In short, they are not taking care of the place. Staff attitude rude and confrontational. I needed carpet cleaned and called a week ahead of time to make sure it was OK. I asked if they had anyone to recommend and the lady said they use Stanley Steamer. I don't like them and she said I could use whoever I wanted. I schedule for the following week with another vendor. I prepared our rig and the tech arrived and started work. About half way through a park employee approached on a golf cart and said to tell the tech to come outside. The park employee did not even talk to me. He told the tech he was trespassing and would have to leave. Threatened to call the police. I contacted the manager who told me that's the way it is. He said they had to prove insurance, etc. even though park policies specifically absolve or all liability for all persons on property. My carpet cleaner had to leave with job half completed even though the park said I could use whoever I wanted. I hope to never need to stay here again. Also, if you have a guest for any period of time it is $5 per day and $5 for the car. So one guest for one night in one car is $20. I encourage all to look for another option. - Moe and Flo are on the go

The spaces in this park are very narrow & no space to park tow. My slide was almost touching my neighbor. Couldn't open awning because of closeness. Roads are very narrow & poorly maintained. Many old RV's with people living in them. Have 33 ft. rig & had difficulty getting in spot because of cars parked part way in road. Broke passenger mirror because of this issue. In addition, I did not feel safe here. I am a Thousand Trails platinum limited member & will contact them about my concerns, misleading pictures, & representation of this park. - vickie438

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith

This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943

Very decent park with really friendly staff. Very quiet at night. Laundry room was really nice, very clean, only $1.25 to wash & dry, & had a TV, VCR, & huge video library to watch! Bathrooms had shower & sink in them & are cleaned a few times daily. The back fence backs up to community park, trails, lakes, playground, & more. - User3782

We stayed at Prospect RV for 5 days in April. First let me correct a previous review. They do not have 50 amp service. At first that was a concern for us but it was cool enough that we never had to run the AC. The staff said they were trying to update to 50 amp but had to wait for utility company to replace transformers. There is a lovely city park right next door so walking dogs was very easy. Not far from all the things we wanted to see and do in Denver. It was a little tight getting into our spot with a 40' 5th wheel but we've been in worse. Getting out would have been impossible if not for the staff. My husband went to the office the day before we left to ask them for help. When we went out the next a.m. to pull out, every car had been cleared out in our row (there are a lot of long term residents). A staff person even went so far as to call me after we had left because someone had found one of our dogs ID tags and she wanted to send it to me because she didn't want him traveling without one. We would definitely stay here again in cool months and, if they upgrade to 50 amps, we would stay any time. There wasn't room for our tow vehicle at the site but parking was close by. All hook ups were where they should have been. - jgothier

This park is very close to Denver for access to the various attractions there and just west of the city. The staff is very friendly, and bathrooms/showers are very clean and private. A couple things kept me from giving it a 9 or 10 across the board. We never could get connected to the WiFi, and the spaces were very tight. We had a pull-through space and had to move the neighbor's picnic table in order to pull out. There's a beautiful park accessible from the pet walk area with trails, lakes, Clear Creek and the usual park items. We were just here for one night and would definitely stay again. - Eldereaglewatchers

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

Very spacious and nice park. Lots of room between sites. Stayed in both pull through and back-in and no problems with either. Nice trails and lake on site. Only issue is with reservations. If you want to stay more than 2 days, you will have to reserve way in advance or you will be moving around sites. Seems like with today's technology, they should have a better reservation system. - RV Flagstaff Travelers

I'm not sure it will let me review a park we haven't actually stayed in...just tried to make a reservation. First, you cannot make a reservation with less than 3 days advance notice. Secondly, the $30 rate for a full hookup with an 80' pullthrough which sounds very nice also has an additional $10 added for actually MAKING THE RESERVATION. Thirdly, there is a $9 charge each day for your tow vehicle or a toad, and that is for each vehicle. You can buy a pass for $70 something and avoid the $9 per day charge. You CANNOT call the State Park itself to make a reservation...it is a first come, first served park if you want to take a chance on arriving and finding a site. I talked to a rep in the office who was very nice, and asked about any places around there to ride a motorcycle and she said the traffic is very heavy around the park, but very nice inside the actual park. - Ginny H

Very nice Colorado State Park. 80 ft. level concrete pull thru full hookup 30/50 amp sites. Located near Denver and in a large park with lake and other activities including fishing, boating, trails etc. Is always full during the summer so make reservations early. They charge $9.00 for a daily vehicle permit ($70.00 annual if you are staying 10 or more nights). We were only charged one fee even though in a motorhome with toad. Others were charged twice for "anything with an engine" which is ridiculous. Would stay here again. - teepee51
