Clear Creek RV Park is all about location. It is located on a stream and has a great concrete walking (biking) trail to downtown Golden, Colorado. The local area is great and offers a lot of outdoor and indoor activities.

Neighbors are near and there are a few larger rigs in the park but beware of low hanging trees and tight spots. We camped here in a 25 foot motorhome and were able to extend our slide but not our awning but we were in one of the smaller sites.

This is a very popular campground so make your reservations early. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to take the Coors tour, go to Lookout Mountain, and take advantage of the other wonderful activities in the area.

Grocery stores are within a short driving distance and the Saturday Farmers Market was a short walk from the RV Park and one of the best we've seen.

Still the great little place it was five years ago. Biking, hiking, whitewater kayaking and more literally next to your campsite. Museums and city park with playground a very short walk away. America's most charming downtown a moderate walk or very short drive away. Tons of other outdoor recreation a short drive away. Spaces are narrow and close together; no one cares because no one spends much time inside their RV here. Not cheap and no one cares about that either; people come here for what Golden, Colorado has to offer and Golden offers quite a lot. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bicycling, hiking, whitewater kayaking, paragliding, museums, dining, Coors brewery, gold panning, more museums -- there are more things to do in Golden, Colorado than I can even remember let alone list here.

Very nice park within the town limits. The sites are really close together but the surrounding area is very nice (creek, walking trails, walk to town). We called the morning of our stay during the week and were able to secure a FHU site. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Despite the negatives we loved being here.

The positives are that the campground is near the heart of Golden and only 20 minutes from the centre of Denver.

Lots of pleasant shading.

Golden is a lovely town with lots happening along the creek front, right outside the campground. Walking distance (10 mins) to historic center.

Negatives, sites are very cramped, good job the neighbours are friendly as in many cases you shake their hand out of your window. Way too popular, difficulty getting a site, so book ahead. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

So many things to do it won't fit in the Tips section.

Free and all literally less than 5 minutes away: Coor's Tours, Town history museum, School of Mining Museum, Astor House Museum, Outdoor history museum. Historic town center.

Lots of good concrete sidewalks and pathways (wheelchair friendly) along the river and into town, linking to many parks and activity areas. Watch the whitewater canoeing. Watch the joggers. Watch out for the joggers too. Watch the hangliders.

So close to the Rockies for scenic drives.

Paid: Railway Museum. American Mountaineering Museum/Center

Excellent municipal campground. It is in the city of Golden, just a ten minute walk from the downtown area. Very friendly staff, nice level sites, 50amp electric throughout (they will loan you a 30amp adapter if you need it) and water at most sites. Sites are fairly close together. Bath house was clean. They have no reservations, but you can call the morning you wish to stay and they will hold a site for you. Great place to stay if visiting the Denver area.

This municipal campground continues to be one of our favorites to visit with our teenage kids. Right on the river where the kids enjoy floating and kayaking and within walking distance to downtown Golden with great dining and drinks opportunities for the adults and kids alike. The campground is relatively small and does not take reservations, so a bit of luck is required to get in on first come first serve basis in the high season. Wifi is excellent, campsites are level, some full hookup, some elec/water only. Only a few tent sites available. Bathrooms are kept clean and even during the weekend Buffalo Bill days festival the city ensured campers privacy by adding security at the entrance to the campground. A great place with the family if you can get in. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely little park. It is run by the city of Golden, so therefore you are limited to a two-week stay. The staff is very friendly and efficient. It is in the middle of town within walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. There is a paved trail running alongside the campground where visitors and locals alike walk, and bike, with kayaker's often seen in Clear Creek. It is adjacent to a large park with a playground, which attracts day users. If you prefer a remote area, this is not for you. We, however, found it charming and very enjoyable. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clear Creek (City of Golden, CO) campground is a very popular campground so call (we were told to call at 8AM) on the day you would like to arrive to see if they have a space for you. Don’t just show up. We walked into Golden and had dinner at the Old Capital Grill (15 min easy walk), but there are other eateries and shops available in downtown Golden. The campground is somewhat crowded, hard gravel and level so our automatic levelers didn’t need support plates. As the Denver-Boulder area had just suffered devastating rains, the park had been emptied and we were one of the first to call/return so we got a nice river site for our two day stay. As they don’t take reservations except for the day of your intended arrival, call ahead and be prepared to learn they’re full. Your summer stay is limited to a max of two weeks. They have a strong Wi-Fi. On the downside one camper along the creek had the back of his rig sprayed with graffiti. Nothing like that happened during our stay. Not all sites are rooftop satellite friendly, but there are enough local TV and radio stations to get with a standard crank up antenna. The staff is city employees – not camp workers and they do a nice job. We would return to this campground if in the area. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This small city owned campground is a gem. We enjoyed watching all the rafting and tubing activity on Clear Creek. They don't take advance reservations. Call at 7am on the day you plan to arrive and they will let you know if they have a space for you. It was full every night of our 9 night stay. You can stay up to two weeks. It's a great location for everything in Golden, plus the mountain drives, and Denver are just short trips. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small but excellent park. The management is both friendly and helpful. A joy to deal with. The sites are close together but well worth the effort. Clear Creek has a great walking path with easy access to downtown Golden. The park is busy and tough to get into but you will like it once you do. All facilities are clean and well-maintained. We will stay here often! We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Small sites, barely enough room for the tow vehicle to park with the trailer. Camper behind us was close enough to reach out and touch the the back. We thought based on the description that we'd be able to walk to Golden, not really possible as it is a distance from the campground. In addition people not staying at the campground had easy access to the campground from the walking path. Do no think we'd stay here again. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice small park near enough to town to walk to stores and restaurants. It is hard to get into as they do not take reservations. It is in a city park so you share it with a lot of locals. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The playground was not actually on the campground; it was near the entrance in a city park, but it was easily accessible and fantastic. The walking trail along the river was great: kids loved it. However, we noticed non-campers coming into the campground from the walkin trail, at least one of whom was suspicious. The site itself was horrible for our 33 foot rig. No room to extend the slideout, and barely room to park our Wrangler. We self-registered after hours, so we did not have access to the bathrooms or Wi-Fi. We would not camp here again.

The good thing about this park is it's location, along a riverwalk, about 3 blocks from Historic Downtown Golden, beautiful setting. A lot of RV's parked in a small area, sites close together with little room to park tow vehicle. Gravel sites, mostly level, with paved interior roads. A dump station at the entrance, a short one-way road. The office staff was friendly and helpful. The restrooms/showers, and laundry were well maintained. Their Wifi worked excellent. They do not take reservations. I called the morning I wanted to arrive and was put on a list. When I arrived there were no full hook up sites available, so I took a electric only site. The next day a full hook site became available and I moved. It was a hassle, I don't know why they don't take reservations. Rate includes tax and Good Sam discount. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely small park, close to the creek where you can watch the people with the mini-kayaks. Walking/biking trail next to RV park. Flat site,clean grounds, close enough to Denver to see the sights there and close to Red Rocks and other area attractions, not to mention, Coors. The only drawback is that they don't take reservations. You have to call that morning or maybe the night before and hope for the best. 14 day stay is maximum. I would return in the future. We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.
