This is a small RV park (about the size of a backyard) at 917 31st Ave in Greeley. There is no sign, but it's down a driveway behind an auto repair shop and apartment at this address. Water pressure is quite low, so had to hand fill the water tanks and use the internal pump. Of all the campgrounds I have stayed at this had the filthiest rest room (there is one coed rest room- when checking in was told to knock before using restroom) Owner only comes down on weekends, but you can mail a check or pay on the weekend. Although absentee management you are given a business card in case of problems or questions, and he is quick to return calls. I learned to leave my screen door shut, otherwise one of the many friendly cats in the RV park will invite itself in your RV! - Traveling man

Didn't know if you paid monthly there is no refund if your stay is cut short. Didn't see rules till after you paid. Work truck broke down so he brought it home and traded out trucks and was driving his personal truck there while at work, and they accused husband of having aftermarket stuff done to his personal truck he had to use which was false it is all stock but they would not listen and were very rude about it. Space is horrible sites are so close together, not kid friendly. People are rude. So glad to be out of there and will never go back. Worst RV park we have ever been to! - Abeyta

Have stayed here before, so was not surprised. Nice park with level spots. As I only needed electricity and water, didn't opt for full hook ups. Did not watch television, so have no idea what the service is like. Staff was friendly and had no problems checking in. Was not asked age of rig. Good directions to site. I would stay here again when I am in the area. Price is very good. - redlou48

This is our first stay in this RV park and will stay there again when we're in the area. Check-in went smoothly and we received clear directions to our site. Bathrooms and showers were clean. - Loving Retirement

So sorry about this place. We stayed here many years ago and it was nice. Now mostly long term people with permanent things added to their sites. No one seems to pick up after their dogs. Parking was very crowded...had to unhook to even go to site. Office staff was very friendly. - travel2011

The park has power issues (very low voltage on one leg) which prevented the use of standard RV Surge protectors and low water pressure making showers a bit of a challenge.
RV Spaces are *very* tight. I had a family of HEAVY smokers next door that churned out more smoke than a Semi-Truck. With the trailers packed so close you get all the odors from your neighbor. Naturally they felt no reason to accomodate any nonsmoker requests. Had to resort to a filter mask. Due to tempuratures I was not able to use fans to clear out the RV air.
I was planning to stay through March, but ended up leaving after the first month. - WillD

We stayed in space where we had more room between our units as ours was older unit. Newer units with slides and awnings will find it more challenging. Laundry facilities are taxing the drain system and overflow the drains, yet no warning signs are placed out. When office closes, not always as hours posted, no one will answer telephone until voicemail is listened to the following day, unless Sunday. Read all park posted signs pertaining to video taping and supposed rules, it may make your stay "easier?".
Sites are "graveled" still have drainage issues. - Traveler25

Cons-In need of a facelift Old & unmaintained. No place for dogs, defunct mini golf course (if you want to call it that) no wifi, no cable or internet hook ups, no place for parking, majority permanent residents Pros- Great cell reception, cheap, shopping nearby, friendly residents. - Lostnsummr

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

This is a very nice state park located conveniently to I-25 so there is some road noise. We were in the FHU section, sites 42-87. These sites are spacious, long, level, concrete pull-through, with a concrete patio, a covered table, and a fire ring. There is no shade. There is also a flush toilet building in this section. There are several ponds with trails around them so there is plenty of area to walk and exercise a dog. Fishing is available at some of the ponds. Be aware of the $10 reservation fee and an additional $7 daily pass fee. We used this location to explore Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. - JoyceM

It is a really nice State Park. Good fishing and plenty of walking trails. It is near I-25 and you can hear the road traffic. You have plenty of room at your site. - Renegade Traveler

This is a very pretty campground with ponds and wildlife. While our site did not have water at the site, we were easily able to top off our fresh water tanks by running two hoses to the water outlet; other sites had water and sewer. The sites are wonderful. It was also very convenient for visiting friends and family in the area. The biggest problem we experienced was the noise from I-25 (we were the 3rd closest site to the highway). Also, while the check campers, day visitors and guests closely at the entrance during the day, at night there is no security. Despite those drawbacks, we still loved this state park and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. - dandd

Nicely kept park but the spaces are very close together. Bathrooms were very nice but a code was needed to use them and wasn't given at check-in, you had to ask. Wifi was horrible and we had no tv reception. The most disappointing thing for us was that there were no campfires allowed and no space to have them if they were allowed. Very convenient to area shops and restaurants and easy route to the mountains. - pkdrummer

We noted some of the negative comments of others, but found them tolerable. This is obviously an older park built before the days of big rigs. Although a bit congested, we had enough room in an end row site. The staff was super in getting us into our site safely and easily and we decided to stay over an extra day. The park is conveniently located off Interstate 25 and State Highway 34 with shopping close by and lots of things to do and places to go in the area. All in all, the park was nearly full the two times we stayed there -- which says a lot about the facility. - Gene Hain

This campground is conveniently located off of Rt 25 in Loveland. All the sites are shaded by tall mature trees. There is a playground, pool, mini golf and dog run. Restrooms are clean. Showers are nice. The back grassy areas of the park are occupied by seasonal campers. The front gravel areas (with no grass) are used for nightly campers. These sites are slightly small and arranged in a staggered parking pattern where the passenger (door) sides of RVs are facing each other. The only way to arrange your picnic tables is to position them side-by-side with your neighbor, which doesn't allow much privacy. Unfortunately that means that the 2nd RV to each pair of sites usually ends up with no private eating area because the 1st RV gets the optimum table between the 2 rigs. We didn't like this too much. There is also a lot of road noise from Rt 25 and Rt 34. We probably would pick another campground next time even though the facility is clean, convenient and the staff is friendly. - EVO_Bob

This little campground is trying to rebuild. It still needs a lot of work but the management is making progress. All utilities worked as they should. I would say it is still run down but it's a campground with a heart!! The staff and full timers I met were very friendly. I stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. I would stay here again when I return. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Oh my goodness, "rundown" is an understatement. I didn't use the restrooms because I was afraid of what might be growing in there. The train noise was deafening. I didn't sleep all night. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I would never come back. The one bright spot was the restaurant. The Pepperpod Restaurant was wonderful!! Good food. - lancecamper2
Oct 2007 - $27.00
The campground is located immediately off Interstate , so there is some highway noise and is behind the Pepper Pod restaurant. It is basically "carved out" of the back lot and each campsite is white rock pads on dirt/gravel drives. There is little or no shade or privacy and the sites are close together. It appears to be an old facility that is maintained to the basic minimum. A huge drawback is the railroad the runs within feet of the back property line and coal trains go by every half hour day and night. They blow the horns upon entering the town and all the way through. Don't plan on sleeping through this. It is barely acceptable as an overnight stay because it is run down, minimally maintained and train noisy. This is too bad because there is a desperate need for a nice RV park east of Denver on I-76. - marker82

Stayed hear while visiting relatives nearby. Things to remember is the price of camping does not cover the cost of the $8 daily entry rate. Also, the check in was extremely slow as the office at the park also registers boats- an extremely slow process. Although there is no sewer hook up, there are bathrooms and showers. The showers require quarters and I think it was $1 to get the shower started. All of the sites are pull through but area not big enough to leave the tow vehicle attached. - Cavtrooper

The park has both good and bad qualities. The proximity to the lake is fantastic, and there is a lot to do. Sites are big and you are relatively far from other campers. You can have a motor home and two vehicles, or a motor home, tent, and one vehicle. The bad qualities are largely what you get for the price. They only offer electric hookups, with plumbed toilets (bring your own soap for hand washing) and showers nearby (showers will cost you some quarters as they are not included in the price). You also have to pay to get into the state park ($8 or so per day). There is no store and they do not sell firewood. With that said, I would stay here again because of the views and access to the path that goes along the lake. Just get ready to spend some money. - OffroadGirl

We spent 2 nights here as we were traveling through. The location worked well for us to visit friends and relatives. Fortunately they have 50 amp here as we had to run AC because of heat and campfires nearby. It worked out that we took a day to visit Rocky Mt. Nat'l Pk. Sites are asphalt and curved and not long enough for MH and toad to stay attached. Electric was fine; no sewer or water, restrooms and dump station nearby, many channels on broadcast tv, no wifi. Price high for limited utilities/ camping & daily fee, but typical of Co.state parks. - JAWS

This may be a very nice park in the future, but it is in the developmental stage! We had called 45 days previously for reservations. As we were getting close, we called around 11:45 AM to see if anyone would be in the "office" during the lunch hour. No answer; left message and telephone number. Arrived around 1 pm and had reservations for two nights (made on June 24); no one there (only "office" was an RV with flat tires) so we called campground number again and left another message. Additionally, there were four other names and numbers on a big board in front of RV so we called all of them and left messages. One gentleman called me back and said they were out of town and a lady was on duty. Left another message for her and explained what the gentleman said to me.
We saw an empty spot (only one) so assumed it was ours and set up. (It was the only empty spot) No one came back that night and no one called. No one called on Monday. Around 6:25 pm a woman showed up at our RV site, presumably the lady I called. Apparently, they had no record of our calling and making a reservation, and she said she did not get any voice mail messages either. Thankfully, no one needed our spot Monday evening so we paid $35/night (very pricey for this new park without laundry facilities or office). FYI, all but one site are for long-term campers. That one site was full for a week (we had already talked with them to see what they knew about checking in). Hopefully, they will have short-term camp sites sometime in the future.
It is VERY close to railroad tracks and they are VERY ACTIVE day and night. Long-term campers are workers and start their diesel engines early; i.e., 5:30 am.
On the plus side for this RV Park, these are large, long RV sites; mostly pull thru sites; fairly good WIFI and cell service; no problem with satellites since no trees.
If you are looking for a short term stay, look elsewhere. We would not stay here again. - vmi1962

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a very new camp ground and is still under construction. It is off to a good start with well laid out parking on crushed asphalt (I think it will be paved in the future). Sites are long & pretty level. Parking is back side to back side near your neighbor with hook ups between for both of you, while your front door side has plenty of space for a table. It appears the owners are working on the spaces in between to provide tables, but there weren't tables during our stay. No bathroom / shower house right now, but there are some portapotties. It is near a busy train track but the trains rarely blow their horns. It's mostly just the rumble you'll hear, which some folks may like. Overall, this place has good potential; and is an affordable place to stay while exploring the Denver area. My rating is based on it being a good place to park if you are self contained and don't expect 'resort' entertainments. - Rambling Registrar

This is an ongoing project, so during our time of stay it was just a field with a bunch of RV spaces. The owners are super friendly, they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The water hook-ups are top-notch and each site has both a 30 & 50 hook-up. There was no cable, but they offered free wifi and our antenna picked up over 30 local channels. They are constantly working to improve the place. The ''yards'' are huge! The way they have this place designed is genius. Each camper is back-to-back giving each lot a giant yard. There is a train track pretty close, BUT to our surprise it didn't bother us a bit. They don't blow a horn right by the park, and most of the time we never knew they were passing unless we were outside. They don't have any facilities, but like I said- they are just getting this place up and running so I'm sure in the future they'll have a lot more amenities. We were in the area for work and it was next to impossible trying to find an open lot in nearby cities. We stumbled across this little gem and we're glad we did! The town of Keenesburg is pretty small, but they have pretty much whatever you need (a little grocery store, dollar store, laundromat, auto parts, a few restaurants, ect.) If we have to go back to this region for work, we will definitely be giving the manager a call to reserve us a space! They have weekly rates as well as extended stay (monthly). Bottom line, these guys are good people.
Denver is about 30-40 minutes away
Nearest city is Brighton, 18 miles (Walmart, Lowes, ect) - MeganC

We were lucky to get the very last site that our rig could fit in - 30 amp electric only. The next day we were able to pull into a newer site with 50 amp and water. Sites are dirt but fairly level. We could not get satellite reception in the first site but were able to get it in the 2nd site. This is a very bare bones park with an automated system for paying. It's not possible to find an available site without using the machine which makes finding a site very difficult. You need to walk through and find sites without RVs and then go to the machine and plug in the site number to see if it's available. I will say the 2 park "rangers" were very helpful. We were here for a family reunion and all parks in the area from Denver north were full. Our reservation at a real park was mixed up so we had no choice but to stay here. It isn't bad for overnight if you can get in. Arrive early and hope! - dickens

As others have said, this is not a destination resort but a convenient overnight campground with either electric or water hookup for $20. Check in is fully automated and takes cash or credit. There is also a sewer dump which is free for campers. I found a shady pull-thru site which was reasonably level. Aside from some geese that honk their way through the park, this is a quiet campground. Some workers [convicts?] were planting flowers while I was there but some of the back-in sites were overgrown with weeds. The only problem is that the interior roads and sites are dirt and after thunderstorms the previous night there were a few muddy areas. I would stay here again. - mockturtle

This is sort of an emergency campground to stay in when there is no other place available. There is a newer section suitable for long RV and an older section, in which we stayed, as the newer section was full. The RV sites in the older section are short and narrow. When our 4 slide outs were extended,. there was not room to walk around the RV. There was not room to park the car in our site. The bathrooms were marginally clean, with two of the four sinks stopped up an unable to drain in a normal way. As stated in other reviews, there is no sewer hook-up. The park really is not managed. One can not make reservations, so it is first-come to get a site.There is no one in charge on the premises, much of the time. We would stay in this park again, if there was no recourse except for Walmart and even then Walmart may be preferable.. - hoppytoad
