No grass or rock, mostly fine dirt, which makes it impossible to keep it out of your rig. It is located at 7500 ft. so if altitude bothers you not the place to visit. The campground looks like a parking lot with no pull-throughs and units close together and very few trees. They guide you to your site and pick up trash twice a day which is nice. All of the hookups worked. The lake looks nice saw kids fishing but no fish. Estes Park and Rocky Mtn. N.P. where very busy and filled with tourists. If you can visit in the spring or fall it would be better. Would look for a different campground next time. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The National Park was packed, taking away some of the beauty. Had a drink at Stanley Hotel which is a classy old hotel and worth the visit.

Very nice staff, helpful to get you into each site easily, we had a back-in but the host moved a picnic table so we could pull through. Beautiful spot on the river, great mountain view. Not many shaded spots where we were, but the sounds of the stream were very peaceful. Trash pick up twice a day due to bear activity, close to downtown for attractions. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Jeep tours were great, beautiful downtown with lots of shopping and food choices. Recommend doing grocery shopping before you get here, the grocery store around the corner is expensive and not clean or well stocked.

The park seems to have an overall tired worn appearance. The pool and hot tub were closed even though it was June. The sites are spacious but are gravel mixed with grass. The location is good but I agree that this park is not a good value for such a high price. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The attraction for this park, which is essentially a parking lot on a river, is its central location about 2 miles east of the Beaver Meadows entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and about 2 miles west of the bustling downtown of Estes Park. It is nice to stay west of Estes Park if you are mainly focused on RMNP so you don't have to drive through the Estes Park summer traffic each time you want to enter RMNP.

Spruce Lake is well-maintained (except the putt-putt course that was destroyed in a flood three years ago). The laundry room was one of the largest and nicest I have seen in 9 years of camping all across the country. The camp hosts are friendly and there is a small trout pond your kids can fish in (for $8.50 per day). But the RV sites are crammed together and there is nowhere to put your lounge chair and absorb the beauty of the area. If you don't mind dry camping, you would be much happier getting a camping site within RMNP if you are there for the scenery and can get a reservation. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Rocky Mountain National Park is the big attraction. If you are going to RMNP and Estes Park in the summer, avoid the weekends if possible, because they get very crowded. Even on Monday - Wednesday (the best days to visit), try to be in RMNP very early (like 7:00 a.m.) to hike or drive Trail Ridge Road. You'll avoid the long lines at the RMNP entrances and along the roads. Trail Ridge Road can become bumper to bumper on summer afternoons.

Very convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park. A park employee helps you back in your site, which is very much appreciated and necessary because the sites are not angled. We had to wait about 15 minutes to park because a travel trailer in our row was backing in and then had to unhook. Tight spaces between rows. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I have mixed feelings about this park as the sites and roads are not well maintained and dirt mixed with some gravel and mostly back in on and mine was not level as one would expect at this price...but it was close enough for the jacks to work with one wheel slightly off the ground. Wifi was not great...used my cellphone plan mostly. Bathrooms were VERY well kept and laundry was nice. Kids will enjoy the fish pond. Staff was excellent. The main thing this park has going for it is location which is wonderful for access the spectacular RockyMtn. National Park. Despite the poor value...we'd stay again in this $30 park with a $30 location. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Estes Park is a busy but nice little town with lots to see, eat and do. Library has free wifi if the park doesn't work well. Plenty of stores and restaurants only 1.5 miles from the campground...and the visitors center there has lots of good suggestions and brochures. Park and ride the free shuttle in town.

Have stayed here several times a year over the last few years. Has all the qualities I want: level sites, WiFi, cable TV, fishing pond, swimming pool, hot tub, playground for the grand-kids, event center, weekend events, and great staff. We tried several campgrounds at Estes Park several years ago and none compare. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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.

If you arrive on Rt. 34 you have to drive through the downtown area to reach the campground. But then it is easy access to the national park. Sites are dirt, very dusty, with no shade but there is adequate room and you don't feel like you are on top of your neighbor. Price is probably competitive for the area. We would use this campground again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.
