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

We have stopped at this campground several times over the past 10 years to visit family in the area. Nothing has changed. The worn out laundry equipment, the broken down exercise equipment, even the worn out carpet in the office and pale green paint on the bathroom walls is still the same. The electric was spotty at times failing on several occasions during hot week we were there. Huge potholes that become mud holes at one end of the campground. Our neighbor complained of the pothole at his site and someone came by and threw a few shovel fulls of gravel down. The campground is mostly full of oil field workers who are generally quiet and leave early in the morning but their work vehicles and oversize pickup can make navigating some of the interior roads taxing. This is an old KOA campground that shows little evidence of improvement. If not for the workers it would be mostly empty because there is little to recommend it. Oh yes, during our day the stockyard stench was present nearly every day. - longgone

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

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

I would have given this park a "10" except that it is located next to I-25 so you are never free of the highway sounds, otherwise it's a great place to stay for a night or a week. Campground was amazingly clean as were the facilities. It is located next to the St. Vrain river and wetlands so there it's something of a bird watching mecca. Also there are plenty of nature and hiking trials as well as fishing opportunities. As for the campsites there are 87 total about half are electric only and the other half are full hookup. Each site comes with a level concrete pad, picnic table and fire ring. - longgone

This is a lovely state park RV CG, located near freeway and very convenient to Longmont area. Sites are pull-thru in loops adjacent to the graveled interior road, sites are graveled, very spacious, and surrounded by grass. Sites have picnic tables with a wind shield. Reservations require registration with state park service reservation system, but once done, easy to make reservations. This appears to be a very popular destination for locals on weekends, so reservations required far in advance for weekends, but not so much during the week. Park staff very friendly & helpful. - JerryD

Gravel roads inside the park, however, park staff keep them watered so there is limited dust. Excellent sites, pull through and level. We stayed in the Kestrell Section. The only negatives are the added fees: $10 Reserve America fee per reservation and the park entrance fee. We purchased the annual pass since we stayed several days at several Colorado State Parks. No charge for tow vehicle as long as you tow the vehicle into the park. Easy access to interstate. Walking trails around the lakes inside the park. - Mustcamp

Made reservations for 9 nights a month in advance. Asked for a premium site as we have a 40 ft 5th wheel and another small car and was told no problem. Paid $470 total. We were crammed into a very small space not even room for picnic table between us and other trailer. Also had to park our truck in visitor parking as site was too short to park it there. When we complained they said that was all they had. There was several larger empty spaces in the park. - KellyT

We called 1 hour before closing to see if they had a spot for the next day. They were opened when we arrived and indeed had a spot for the next day for 1 week that we could have. Since it was close to closing time, the computers were already shut down. We were assured it would be there for us the next day. I called as soon as the office was open the next morning. The lady told us that a note was left that we would be arriving the next morning. She took a deposit until we arrived and the balance was paid on arrival. Not only were the staff very polite and had worked things around so we could have 2 weeks in the same spot. Office staff was excellent and the man that guided us to our spot was fantastic. We have found this resort to be very clean and upgraded. Haven't used the bathrooms but everything else is nice and clean. Where else can you put your trash (in garbage bag) near the road in front of your site to be picked up all day??? That rates a 10 in my book. Will try our best to stay here next year for a month. - Bonnie Grafton

The lady in the office was wonderfully nice. The place was very clean and has a fenced in dog park. The wifi was very good and there are a lot of trees. But... the spaces are VERY close together. My neighbor had a crying baby inside that I could hear in my motorhome over my AC and TV. That is how close they are. My spot had absolutely zero water pressure, the water trickled out of the shower and the kitchen I could not even rinse out a glass of water. Might stay here again for one night in a pinch. - DogFriendlyGuy

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

I don't even know where to start but will try going best to worst. The bathroom is clean enough to be tolerable - didn't use the showers but they appeared to be similar. That's the best. The sites are all gravel and dirt. No grass anywhere. They are literally side by side so slide-outs were within 1-2 feet of neighbor. You have to weave and duck to walk between sites. The whole place is pretty sketchy. We saw one site occupied by someone overhauling his pickup and apparently sleeping in the truck and my parents were nearly run over one night as the sheriff chased a vehicle through the campground. But wait, there's more. The host or ranger or whatever was the most awful, foul-tempered person I've ever encountered in a park. She yelled at people, accused one of our family of having expired license plates (they weren't), and ultimately kicked another one of my family out of the park (no refunds) saying their camper wasn't "legal". The alleged illegal camper was a recent private party purchase so no plates, rather, "In Transit", and keep bill of sale on you at all times, plate within 30 days - which is the law in our home state. Because that's apparently not the law in Colorado, she deemed them illegal and kicked them out (their pickup tow vehicle was plated and licensed). Her reasoning was they need to "keep the riffraff out". See above stories and know they aren't successful at keeping said "riffraff" out and her application of rules is inconsistent at best. We are a family of respectable professionals and retirees gathering for a family event in Colorado and we were treated horribly. Sadly, we had stayed at this park several years ago and it was much nicer and we never encountered such problems - so it has gone downhill fast. I will never ever consider staying here again. Find a Walmart parking lot - you'll be safer, better respected, and not be kicked out. - MamaK

It's a good place to stay when passing through Boulder. Some grass and gravel. We stayed overnite, but spoke with people who had been there vacationing and they liked it. Close to activities in the area. - skier1947

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
