The RV park is very handy to Rocky Mountain National Park (you don't have to drive through busy Estes Park). When you first pull in it looks crowded but the sites are spacious. No shade but at 7500 ft elevation it stays cool. There is s fishing pond & creek. Dog friendly! We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Extraordinary work camp staff; very friendly and helpful and would be remise to not note the work done to repair all of the damage done by the floods from 13. Newly renovated laundry room and bathrooms, were exceptionally clean and taken care of. The onsite putt-putt course is still closed from the 2013 flood. Site was large enough for our 36 ft trailer and truck. A few sites are shaded but most are open while each have adequate space and a picnic table. Elk were grazing both in and just outside the park each morning while we were there. Park has a fishing pond and saw several folks catching some nice size trout. The swimming pool was closed while we were there for repair; camp staff were hopeful to have it open by Father's Day. The setting is beautiful and is convenient to downtown Estes Park and less than 1 1/2 miles from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. If we are ever in the EP area again, we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We were guided to our FHU pull through site. Pleasant but not fancy site. Office staff very helpful with initial temporary WiFi access problem. WiFi was ok. Nice dog walking along the river and perimeter, and poop bags provided. Mini golf course was being deconstructed. Close to RMNP and to Estes Park shopping. We enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a motorhome. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is with Good Sam discount, but still overpriced. It is called an RV resort, but there is nothing about the campground that makes it a resort except for being in the Rocky Mountain National Park tourist area. At site #39, the 50 amp connection did not work properly. Seven of the eight dryers were broken. Roads and sites are a mix of dirt and gravel. We stayed here for five nights while visiting family. We probably would not stay here again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We spent four night here and enjoyed our stay. The views and the river were great. We would definitely stay here again. We had no trouble getting around with our 36 1/2 foot RV. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We had probably the closest site to the river and thoroughly enjoyed the view and the sounds! Strangely, the "premium" sites are all in the middle of the park, with people constantly driving/walking through, close to the bathrooms, etc., and overlooking the "lake" (really just a pond). Not sure why those are considered prime sites. But overall it was a great place...nice enough space between the RVs, and located in an absolutely beautiful spot. Would definitely stay here again.

We are former long time residents of Estes Park and were in the tourist business for 31 years. So, we are familiar with area campgrounds. Spruce Lake has one thing in common with other campgrounds in Estes Park. They are overpriced. It's called location, location, location. It is convenient to the National Park and town. Nearby Sundeck Restaurant was great. National Park Village grocery in walking distance is adequate but very expensive. Go to Safeway. Gas at National Park Village was the highest in town. The sites are fairly level but could use grading. The pool looks good but small. Showers and bathrooms look good although we didn't use them. Dryers in laundry were in very bad condition with several out of order. The mini golf was a rundown wreck. Grassy areas around the perimeter to walk the dog. Poop bags are provided. Nice fishing lake. Campground by the river which provides nice sound to block out traffic noise. Sites are small but adequate. Not much elbow room, but didn't hang out in the campground. Staff is nice. Water and electric are good. Wi-Fi was useless. Cable is good. Not a bad campground in general but not worth $57 per night with upcharge since it was 4th of July week. We do have reservations there for next summer. Main reason is its access to the National Park and proximity to the YMCA where we will be volunteering. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great staff, but the office is only open 8-5. Sites are dirt with patchy weeds in between, back to back, with power at your rear and fairly close together. Max length site is 42'. No security. I was never able to get onto campground Wi-Fi. Verizon and AT&T two to three bars. Close to town and walking distance to several restaurants, liquor store (very expensive) and gas station. Also very close to Rocky Mountain NP which is magnificent. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

While this park was damaged by the flood in 2013 it appears they have repaired most of it. The only facility not yet restored is the on-site mini-golf course but they are planning to do so. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are large enough to enjoy the outdoor space and all have green grass and picnic tables. Some sites are shaded with pines but most are open. We saw elk graze through the park one morning. Our site was near the river that flows around the park, which was especially enjoyable. The fishing pond was the center of activity for many and we saw several folks catching nice-size trout. The swimming pool was heated and sheltered from the wind so it was comfortable even when the wind was blowing. The setting is beautiful yet the park is convenient to downtown Estes Park and well as Rocky Mountain National Park. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Okay, other reviewers aren't wrong, but they aren't being fair. This is a fantastic park! Yes, it's tight. So what? Look around you...mountains and wide open spaces in every direction. Amazing views. Great facilities. They are up and running with very few small exceptions after a 500 year flood that would have put lesser parks out of business for good. Wifi sucks. Useless. So what!? You don't come to Estes for wifi. You come for mountain air, vistas, shopping, food and the most amazing feature of all: the RMNP which is a short jog away from this park. We come year after year and will never stay anywhere else because you can't walk to all the awesome amenities this park offers. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Spruce Lake is a fine park. Like lots of businesses along the Big Thompson river were damaged in the Colorado floods last year. But they are up and operational with some major repairs to the office and newly graded roads. Great spot for visiting Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Sites are of good size. Mix of 30 and 50 amp locations. Only downside was poor WiFi but that isn't unusual these days. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park was OK, but not worth the price. The staff were very nice, however the sites were dirt and there was only weeds between them, no grass. They were close together and many were tandem so you had another trailer right behind you. They do not allow outside dog kennels. The only thing we really liked about this park was the dog walk which was right along the river with lush grass. We would not stay here again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Large RV park with fishing pond (fee required). Wide RV sites available. No shade. All gravel roads and pads, some with grass. Playground, heated pool. Friendly check-in. Apparently a popular place, very busy at this time (Sept. 8 - 11). We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The view from this park is beautiful. You are just a few miles from Rocky MT National Park. The RV park was fine gravel very level. The showers were large and clean, very clean. The internet and cable were good. I would stay here again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
