Really small. Not a good fit for large RV. Would try somewhere else next time. - I r.v for fun

Worst RV Park ever. First, it's practically on Hwy 289 so it's super noisy. The only overnighter sites face the highway, and it's bright out, so you better have dark curtains. We knew this going into the place, but we were desperately tired and stopped anyway. The management was less than hospitable, and cranky. When I asked her if I could write a check she looked at me with an accusatory look and said "Is it any good?" When I asked her if she had laundry facilities, she said, "I got nothing! Just a place to hook up and dump. That's it." Going against our better judgment, we set up in one of the 3 overnight spots, and the electric hookup was a joke. It actually had old fuses instead of circuit breakers. We plugged into the box on our site, and there was no power. So we plugged into the one next to us and it worked for a bit. But the next morning the outlet was sparking, arcing and crackling (we weren't even running anything except the water heater and fridge), and when my husband went to go shut off and unplug, it sparked and almost started a fire up our RV cord. Our cord prongs are smoked. The park noise and the dumpy trailers there were bad enough, but that was the last straw. I went over to management and just told her we had to leave 2 days early. I did not say why out of fear that she wouldn't give me a refund. She kindly gave me my check back, which was nice. At $20 a night, this place is no bargain if they fry your electrical system. Stay away, and bite the bullet and pay for the pricier campgrounds in the area (we went to Johnson's Corner, 20 miles south, in Loveland). Fort Collins has squat in the way of RV parks, so the best you'll get is down the highway in Loveland, or maybe the state parks, which cost just as much as the parks, so why not go for the full hookups instead? Eeek. After 2 years on the road, we've never seen anything this bad. Boondocking at Wallyworld would've been much, much better. - LiveWorkDream

No Showers or Restrooms which they do tell you up front. This is mostly a Mobile Home and Monthly Campground with only 2 spaces available for overnighters, the one we got was in a beautiful shaded spot, the only pull-through is part of a driveway with no shade. The park is very well maintained and the owners very friendly and helpful. Very close to town for shopping etc. They do not have any discounts, we got good internet and 4 tv channels via antenna. - mskitny

This is a destination RV park where a family can enjoy the many included amenities without ever leaving. If that is your plan, this is a great park and worth the money. If all of those amenities have no interest to you, you will be paying a huge premium staying here. The entrance is long and paved and a security guard checks you in. The registration area is large and staff is friendly. a host takes you to your site. The interior roads are gravel and narrow, made worse by cars parking in the road at the perimeter back in sites. We had a corner spot with a huge paved patio, wrought iron furniture, fire pit and BBQ grill, but no grass. There is a concrete pad large enough to get a big rig situated on it, but the front and back of the site is gravel. The utilities worked fine. WiFi was not great. There were many restrooms and they were very nice with very spacious showers. The lake is nice and you can walk your dog around the half mile perimeter. - VegasVagabonds

This was a difficult review to complete as there were both good and bad points. First, if you like narrow and shallow back-in sites, this campground is for you. Our back bumper was less than 5 feet from the rig behind us and our slide was about the same distance from the neighbors picnic table. The pull-thru sites seemed to have much more room. Next, during our first two nights, the CG was mobbed. Just about every site was occupied, so there were adults and kids and barking dogs everywhere. It was like being in downtown Denver at lunchtime. But on the last few days, it slowly emptied, so there were less people and not as much noise. The entrance ways were all paved, but the roadways within the park were dirt and stones, so without rain, it was dusty most of the time. I must say that the staff we had contact with were hardworking and very friendly. There were numerous activities going on throughout the park, but seeing Mount Evans, Estes Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park trump campground activities. If we were back in the area during the "in" season, we would not stay here, but we may consider it during the "off" season. - Love To Travel 2

Talk about a bait and switch swindle. Reserved a full hookup site for 5 days. $30.00 on reserve America. Okay that's pretty good right, Wrong!!! When we arrived we had to pay another $7.00 dollars a day as a parking fee for the MH and Toad. That's $7.00 each or another $14.00 a day.
This for dirt roads and site, lots of dust and idiots driving to fast. Lots of road noise.
It's one our list as a never again park. The county should be ashamed !!!!!! - traveler1952

This is a rustic county park and the experience centers on the clear, cold reservoir. We stayed 1 night in site #S71 which is a pull-through electric only site right on the lake. Although we didn't have a water connection, there were spigots available to fill your tanks about every 4 sites and at the dump station. We could enter the water and swim from our site as well as from the adjacent sites.
It is an older park; the semicircular pull-throughs we doable but a little snug for our 31' trailer and truck. There is a new bath house one end of the reservoir which was very clean and had pay showers. The older bathrooms on the loops weren't in great shape. We had no cell reception (AT&T), but the reservoir is hemmed in by the mountains. It is a 15-20 minute drive into Fort Collins.
Please note that in addition to the nightly rate, there is an $8.75 reservation fee and a $7/day vehicle fee. - texasAUtiger

The campground is located at the south en d of the horse tooth reservoir just west of Fort Collins. Interior roads are well groomed gravel and sites are level. There are full hook up sites but we chose an electric only site for our one night stay.
Weekends are busy so book ahead. - n2916s

Easy access from the interstate. Rate reflects the state park daily camping rate. Water spigots located in each row in all loops not at sites. Parking pads are curved but pull through. Great bike trail runs through the park. Great access to the lake. Easy access to the dump station. Reserve site online, there is a fee. Check campground map on Google Earth to select a site with trees or that suits you best. - Mustcamp

Rate above includes having to pay a daily admission fee to access the park. Overall, a nice place. We had an end site near a bath house that was quiet, clean, and level. Only complaint would be that there was no soap available in the bath house to wash hands with! The showers are coin-operated but have good water pressure and are hot. We didn't have time to check out the lake as we were visiting family nearby but it was nice to camp by. - calijame

Great state park close to lots of services and amenities. We had a pull-through site with a lake view. Our site was also next to the multi-use concrete path that runs through the park. Perfect! We went for runs on this path and also rode our bikes on it for over 20 miles in the city of Loveland. Access to the path was our favorite feature of the campground. We were in the first loop, which is a short distance away from the beach area and the lake. Services were excellent. As other reviewers have noted, this campground feels more like a city park than a state park. Most sites are well shaded. As with most Colorado state parks, water spigots are shared among campsites. We would definitely stay at this park again. - tripster

Unlevel sites with old crumbled concrete pads. Table and chairs on raised patio stones, unfortunately you are setting on your patio with your neighbors sewer right at your table......not really what you would to have while trying to enjoy a meal or for that matter and afternoon beverage. Last time the patio site was cleaned was the last rain... Vehicle has to be parked at an angle behind your RV in an inadequate space. Quiet inside park but road noise from Hwy 287. Many full time residences. Management seemed nice and did help you park. Would not stay here again. Very poor value for your dollar. - John3508

Stayed here for 2 nights on our way home in Denver area. This is the first time we have stayed here versus other campgrounds in the Ft Collins area and were pleasantly surprised. Sites are on a hill and gravel but there is a concrete slab in each site that is level so park on it and you just have to adjust front to back. Had to park truck sideways on site due to short length, but there are longer sites if available. And they have better water pressure per pamphlet. Ours was weak. There are trees for shade and the altitude results in a comfortable temperature. Wifi is weak at times, better in early morning or late evening when there are fewer users. There is some road noise from US highway just outside the property. Nice rural area but close enough to all the amenities of Ft Collins. We will return. - RV'er

Sites were level with tall trees for shade. Easy in/out with 40 ft. motor home. A very clean campground in a nice rural area yet close enough to Denver for day trips. Price is for electric only site. Would stay here again. - Alfa 40

Staff very helpful and were able to accommodate us for the night. Someone lead us to our site and helped us pull in.
Site was a level pull-through with easy to reach services. Sites were close but not impossible so.
Using the word "resort" is a stretch, but the park is adequate for short stays. About 1/2 long-term residents. - daviputnam

Rolled in without a reservation, staff very helpful and were able to accommodate us for the night.
Site was a level pull-thru with easy to reach services. Staff were friendly & helpful. Someone lead us to our site and helped us pull in.
They were obviously getting ready for the summer season, lots of maintenance work going on. Pool was scheduled to open in May. - Our-Wandering-Casa

This really is "so-so". It was a little dirty and a bit cramped but the staff were at least friendly. However they follow Greeley's rule about RVs not being older than 10 years. Which is really annoying. Would I stay here again? Only if I really had to. - WrathOfPhontex
Jun 2012 - $19.00
Friendly owners which are very laid back. This is not your normal run RV Park. But I will stay here when ever we are in the area. Park could be greatly improved by making the permanent residents clean up around their sites. The Park has great access to the surrounding area. - From the Kites

This is more like a trailer park the a campground. This place is more then half full of permanent trailers.It is looking run down and old. The whole place needs a face lift. There are nice people living there but a lot of junk laying around. - dozerdog
Jul 2010 - $25.00
The other reviews were right. It's shaded by well spaced trees, the price is decent, but it is populated by many permanent and semi-permanent residents--only three sites left for shorter stays. Sites are level gravel with green grass and picnic table, roads are hard packed dirt but not dusty. The pool is small and old, but clean and warm enough. Wifi worked fine. Lots of dogs and leashes are not strict. Toilets are old but clean, but the shower floors are creepy. Okay for a stop over, or to stay a month or two, but not great for a few days of recreating. We stayed only one night, then went looking for better facilities. - JunebugW

We couldn't get in Boyd Lake SP when it was full for the weekend ,so tried this park. The worker campers in office were nice but open hours are very limited. Looked like nearly every site was taken by full-time residents or long term visitors from out of state. Were told the Park has been purchased by owner of Riverview Rv Park down the street and eventually will not be open to over night campers. It was ok for our purposes, with cable, wifi and good electric. Bathrooms were small and very outdated; so was Laundry room. Most sites were tight and in full sun. Easy drive up Big Thompson canyon to Estes. Can't really recommend and it will be a residential-type place anyway. - Annie's Song

Rate reflects weekly rate. Staff: friendly. Neighbors: friendly and, oh, my some were even long time residences. Yes, the sites are close together, but I've been at worse; we had a concrete pad with a picnic table on it which I consider quite roomy. It is on a hill and a bit tight to get into spots, but we managed with our 35' fifth wheel. Laundry facilities were clean. Location is great; not far to get to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain NP. Devil's Backbone a very short drive (1.3 miles) with great hiking and biking. Even Loveland downtown is not that far away. WiFi was relatively good. - MichelleKry

We have been full timing for two years, and this was the first time we actually did not stay. After driving through the park and noticing the spaces were very close together and several residences that were not in great shape, we paid the cancellation fee and left. The park needs some work; spaces and the full time residences needed to be cleaned up. We made the reservation in advance as we would be attending a wedding in Boulder. Ended up staying elsewhere which was much nicer than this park. - Wsurf

This park is dirty. The road surfaces are dirt, and every time a vehicle comes or goes it kicks up a major dust storm. Your vehicle(s) will not stay clean here, and you can't sit outside for long without being assualted by a cloud of dust. - Rodstein
Sep 2016 - $25.00
Sites were short and rather narrow but we were able to use both slides and awning. Roads and sites were sand/gravel but level and in fairly good condition. All hook-ups worked well, including cable and wi-fi. Staff was friendly and helpful and we were escorted to our site and really appreciated the help getting backed into our site between trees. - SandyA

Interior roads and sites are level dirt with gravel. Many of the pull-through sites are side by side. Sites are close together but generously wide roads make maneuverability easy. Many mature trees provide a lot of shade. Electric and sewer were good, water pressure was low, wi-fi was frequently slow but functional, cable was basic but worked well, AT&T phones worked but there was no data service. The restrooms were clean, the laundry was worn but clean. Many sites are permanent and a lot of those are old, sprawling and unkempt. Office hours are rather limited but the staff was friendly and helpful. - never settled

We just used this camp as a stop over and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Took us to our site and helped us back in. Place was clean and well maintained. Would very much stay here again. - Ruckmanite

I was referred to this park by a park mgr. in Loveland, CO because their RV park was full. I reserved 2 days ahead and was told on the phone that I had to pay by credit card then and NO refund was possible as they had a 48 hr. refund policy. Soon after my arrival I noticed an awful odor in the air. I found out that there's a cattle lot close by and the park frequently smells bad. The smell varies according to the direction of the wind and at times made me nauseous. I will never, ever stay in this park again. This is unfortunate as the staff was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. - June Foster

The park staff was very helpful. For example, a branch on a tree was too close to one of our slides; they quickly trimmed the branch for us. Every time I had a question, the staff was very happy to respond. Some have complained about the smell. There is a feedlot behind the park, and sometimes there is an oder of livestock. We found that most of the time, the smell was not that strong; it was simply a farm-smell. Every once in a while, depending on the wind, the smell was a bit stronger. I guess if you are a city person, that might be a problem, but for a country boy, even at the worst it wasn't all that bad. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for the views, and for the great service. - MFTDoc
