We had reserved a non sewer site, upon arrival we learned it was $23 to use the dump station. The receptionist let us move to a sewer site (which was $2.59/night more but less than $23). She was very friendly and helpful. While we were there we had a package sent Fed Ex there, both lady hosts were extremely helpful with this, both watching out for our package if it came before we arrived. Many many thanks to them! The site we moved to, #5, was extremely narrow, but it had sewer. We stayed 2 nights. Bathrooms clean, had to put quarters in to take showers, but I did not use so I don't know how much it cost. We were very close to downtown Golden. A few over the air channels, good Verizon signal. Wifi if you sat near the reception area. Would stay here again without hesitation. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the Coors Brewery Tour in Golden, very nice.

Stayed here for 10 days, split between site #13 and site #14. Had to play a sort of "musical chairs" on our transition day because three sites were switching, all amongst each other! That was interesting. Somehow, it was done though, and all was well. Site #13 is a bit of a squeeze, as you need to get in close to the edge of the site to make sure you're not blocking the pull through site directly behind you. Thankfully, they guide you to your site and help you position, because this campground is confusing. It's very old, and most of the sites show it (odd spacing, lots of tiny spaces, weird hookup locations, etc).

We were told our hookups were at the back of our site, but when we went to hookup, we weren't numbered for that specific box - we were numbered for a box about 10 feet in FRONT of our rv and down the slope (all sites on the ridge share electric and water with the tent site on the bottom of the ridge). This was very confusing and we had to go out and buy an extension cord to be able to make it work. Then, a few days in, we walked by the hookups and saw that the box we'd originally been told to hook up to (which was only numbered for the tent below) was now magically numbered for our site (#13). Seems the host came by, saw what we had to do to hook up, thought "oops", went and numbered the correct electric box, BUT NEVER TOLD US. We switched it to that one, but it was our last night. We can forgive the bungle, but at least tell us!!

Site #14 was easier by far. Leveling and hookups were all easy. Trash is a bit far from this section of the campground. Also, since this seemed like a grey area when I was researching, you DO need to pay to use the dump station, EVEN IF YOU ARE CAMPING. The fee is $23, and you'll have to sign paperwork acknowledging this.

Other than that, this was a good campground. We were able to get a Verizon Mifi signal. Sites felt open, there's a trail across the road that's great for dogs, and the mountain views are wonderful. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart and Home Depot are literally one mile down the road. Saw lots of RVs hanging out in the parking lot at Walmart. Great proximity to Denver, with amazing views of the Front Range. Be careful of the steepness of I-70!! Don't push your vehicle too hard or you'll be pulled over on the side of the road. Countless 18 wheelers were crawling with their hazards on while navigating westbound.

Memorial Day weekend at Chief Hosa, one of the coldest/rainiest holidays in recent memory. The site we had was OK, it was fairly level, but it was muddy, particularly where the tow vehicle was parked. Didn't spend much time outside due to the weather. The campground can get crowded and the sites are close together, but no more so than some of those parking lot RV parks where there's barely room to breathe. The staff was friendly and very helpful, guide to help us get the rig in place. Water/Electric connections, no sewer. Only drawback -- they charge an additional $23 to use the dump station there, which is way too steep a price. I gave the park a 7 rating, since it's a viable park to stay in, close to I-70 and amenities, easy commute to Denver or Evergreen/Conifer area. Some of the sites aren't overly level, and it does take some experience in getting in and around the campground, as there are a lot of trees, and some tight turns. It was clean, and the restrooms were very clean. Some folks gripe about the fee to shower, but it's not really unreasonable. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice setting with large trees, clean and quiet, but roads and spaces were very uneven, and the showers were some of the worst I've seen. You get 2 minutes of hot water for a quarter, then you had to get out of the water to add another quarter. There was nowhere to set clothes or shoes out of the water. Odd set up for pull throughs meant my RV door was directly across from my neighbors door, about 5 feet away. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The setting is pleasant, but right off of I-70 so road noise is pretty prevalent. The Wi-Fi is very spotty and not very good even if you have a good connection. It can't be relied on. The sites are close together. There are lots of trees and the camp hosts are very nice. It is a nice place to stay while doing things in the area - very convenient to the Denver metro.

Easy on/off from Interstate 70. Campsites are in a woodsy setting, and somewhat sloped, which makes leveling a challenge. Park staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Peaceful park despite the closeness of other campers. We would stay here again. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Lots of road noise. WI-FI - useless. Sights are very small and sloped. Nice staff. No laundry. Paid in advance, but had to leave a day early due to altitude sickness - they would not refund the unused balanced. This was not a holiday weekend. We would not stay here again. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Truck Camper.

This was an old city park which has been re-configured for RVs. We were at right angles to the rig behind us and our site was sloped. It's a beautiful setting and worth a night or two. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed staying at Chief Hosa Campground for our last night of a great trip with our grandchildren. The restrooms were very clean, and the manager is on top of maintaining a top notch, rural campground. The grandchildren enjoyed the playground area, and could sit and watch the hummingbirds for hours. Thank you. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a really great campground to stay in if you're looking for some peace and quiet, mountain views and lots of hiking trails. The campground does have 5 full hookup spots but 3 of them are usually used by the hosts. We were able to get one of the full hookup sites and it made our stay very convenient. The park is on the mountainside so the roads are dirt and a little steep and curvy in areas but we saw some really big rigs come and go without an issue. The hosts were awesome and the bathrooms were kept very clean. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

When we first pulled into the park I wasn't impressed. After a couple hours here I came to really like it. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The sites have side by side hookups but they are roomy, so that isn't a problem. The pool is large and warm. Showers are sparkling clean, large, and have great water pressure. There are 2 dog walking areas with bag stations. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at Chief Hosa. We elected to stay just three days this time as we are not fond us using the "Blue Boys" to empty the tanks. But, at least they were available if you need them! The sites are all dirt which makes for a not so nice site when it rains. Sites are also very narrow. To me this is a true "campground" not an RV park. Lots of tent campers and children. The best part of Chief Hosa is the elevation, which is 7700 feet, so it is much cooler than Denver. Staff is also very accommodating. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I love this campground! Yes you do have to pay for showers, however they are beautiful and very clean! I even felt comfortable without my flip flops on. Yes some of the sites are somewhat difficult to get into, but they are not impossible. You just need to have patience! You have to realize that you are camping on the side of a mountain!! I loved being under the pines. We had no problem with being level and we just a had a wonderful short stay. The attendants are very sweet people and very helpful. We traveled with two children under 13 and our pooch! I would come back here in a heartbeat!! We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well treed. Steep grades in some locations. Great dump station. Close to road and highway. Road noise is present but not disturbing. Friendly and helpful campground hosts. Coin operated showers: 25 cents for 5 minutes. We would stay here again. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground personnel were directing RV's in the wrong direction, so several RV's had to back up long distances to properly park. Sites are hard to get into and not level. Not advised for larger rigs. Advertised as "full hookups" but no dump provided at sites, just a dump site for entire camp. No convenient pet area and no waste bags provided even though there was a dispenser marked "pet waste bags." We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
