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.

This is America's oldest RV Park-my husband's grandparents camped here when he was a little boy! It is rustic and beautiful, with hiking trials, wildlife and a brand new shower house. The views from Chief Hosa Lodge, just across the road, were outstanding, and our neighbors saw a bear nearby. Do not expect perfect sites, though we had a level, large site for our 30' fifth wheel. The views are great, as are the staff, and you are close to Denver without the heat and hassle. Other reviews must have expected a KOA type place-this is rustic, with good hookups and wifi, but little tv reception and no sewer, though they have a dump station and even loaner porta-totes to use. We loved it here, camped for a week plus and will return. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is very rustic. It's more of a tent place. We were charged extra for two of our kids. It was very wooded and difficult to move our rig around. Our friends that were with us in a tent, had a much easier time here and were not charged extra for their two kids. We would come back for an adult trip if back-packing with tents.

Let’s start out with the good. The have fast, free internet. OK, now to the bad. First, the campground is very close to the interstate. Upon arriving, we were greeted quite rudely by the lady running the front shack (i.e. office). After paying extra for kids and pets (a first!), we were allowed to proceed to our site. What a mess of a campground. Apparently, the person designing the campsite layout and the other person designing the utilities didn’t meet before construction began. I kid you not, our dining room window was not more than 3 feet from the king-pin of the fifth-wheel parked next to us. What a great view! Luckily, the voltage eventually came up to above 108V so that we could switch the fridge back over to electric with the A/C running. No way could we run the electric water heater. Our utility pole was right in front of the neighbor’s door. Depending on the site you get, you may need an extra sewage hose and extra electric cord. Our neighbor’s sewage was in the same place as ours. Remember, their kingpin is at our dining room window. Talk about a long sewage run. The sites are not very level and obviously quite narrow (our slideout came within about 12 inches of our neighbor’s trailer!). In fact, I had to use 4WD to back up into our site. The grass was literally 4 feet tall. I guess we should have known things would not work out when we had to sign a form stating that we had read and understood the rules, which was a first for us. Apparently, this park is operated by the city. If you check out my previous reviews, you will see that I typically don’t give such a poor rating. However, this park deserves it… what a disappointment! We will never stay here again. We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
