11 Parks near Granby, Colorado

Price is with senior passport. Another beautiful federal facility. Gravel back-in sites with gravel pads for picnic tables and fire pits, situated on a peninsula on Lake Granby a few miles north of Granby, CO. Beautiful panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. No check-in issues - was told "just go to your site and enjoy the sunset". Bathrooms were clean, showers free; but you can't adjust the water temperature and some were very hot, others not so much. Still fine. A great place to camp. - rv1guy2cats

The rate reflects a 50% senior discount for a non-hookup site. This is National Forest Service Campground manged by a concessionaire. Based on what we had read and imagined, we thought that Lake Granby would be this quite, remote Forest Service lake. It is not; the lake and the area are heavily developed, so don't expect a wilderness experience. That being said, the area is still very nice with beautiful views. This campground is pretty much devoid of trees, but that does make for some good views. The sites have some separation but, because of the lack of vegetation, there is no privacy. There is also some road noise from the adjacent highway. This is the one campground on the lake with a dump station. There is also fresh water at the dump station, but, for some unknown reason you have to attach your hose to a tap that is about 7 feet up. Perhaps this is a temporary issue. Our Verizon phone and data were very strong. We had no problem with satellite since there are almost no trees. We did not stay at this campground our allotted time of 8 nights. - TheJim

The rate is $25 for an electrical site, plus the $7 NFS day use fee. This is our second time here, the first being a few years ago before it was clear cut due to the pine bark beetle infestation. While I do wish the trees were still there, the 360 degree view of the mountain ranges with the lake in the foreground is in a word - spectacular. It is a few miles from Grand Lake and the west park entrance. - barbielab

Nice campground - larger than it looks from the road. It's in the Rocky Mountains so entirely level sites are a bit scarce. Some sites are big rig friendly. There are trees between most sites so privacy is better than average. We were in a Class B so site was spacious. Would come here again with our big rig but would want to make sure we had one of the big rig friendly sites. - dfwcantor

We loved this campground. The owners really care and answered so many questions to help our first trip to RMNP be an awesome one. They also are so nice, and went above and beyond for us. Rebecca really understands customers service, and we also enjoyed meeting the other family members and employees.
We do wish they had a fenced in dog run, but they were kind enough to tell us a few places right near the campground where we were allowed to take our dogs off leash to run and get worn out. (we have a young lab, need we say more?!)
Our site was quite private, and loved all the greenery and trees. Table was in good shape, and loved having a fire pit. Other campers were a pleasure to meet, they seem to attract good people.
We will definitely be back and hope they have room! We drove to Estes and were happy we choose to stay in Grand Lake. Campground is in a good area, and very close to the park entrance as well. - Dank

They accept no discounts, AAA or Good Sam. They are a bit expensive for what they have. The sites are nice, all wooded. The lady checking everyone in was not very nice. - kbarkley

We love this RV campground. The campground is right outside of Rocky Mountain NP west entrance and wildlife roams nearby (elk, moose). The campsides are big and level and most have some shade. There's horseback riding, camp store, etc. - CastleRook1

We had originally planed to stay at another park but we told that we have to stay in a parking lot because it was Labor Day weekend, so at the last minute in desperation we called Winding River, and it turned out to be a jewel of a park with plenty of room between sites. Very family friendly with a cookout on Saturday night and a cowboy breakfast on Saturday morning, horseback rides and many activities for the entire family. The (very small) Colorado River is a short distance away and they had a wonderful Cowboy church on the riverbank Sunday morning. It borders Rocky Mountain National Park and it is close to the very touristy town of Grand Lake. About the only thing that kept it from being a "10" is a very small laundry with only 2 washing machines. There may be more in a building somewhere else but that's all we could find. The staff was very friendly and the entire park is a winner. One word of caution: our GPS was miles away from the actual location, but in their defense we were warned not to trust the GPS when we made reservations. Don't know why it was so far off, but trust them when they give specific instructions and tell you the GPS is wrong. - bigt

Various types of campsites, from rugged tent to spacious pull-throughs for large rigs. For RVs, sites are gravel with easy to use hook-ups. Excellent Wi-Fi. They have special facilities for horses and ATVs. Adjacent to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake area has three large lakes for boating and fishing. If you like hiking, you are in paradise. Only weakness is muddy roads after a rain. - AGCS

We definitely miss the trees but this is a natural process and an example of how a forest regrows from a meadow. Elk frequent the campground in the mornings and evenings. Moose and bear can be seen nearby. The standard rate of $26 seems high for dry camping. There is a posted 30' RV length limit. Most sites are designed for tents or small camper vehicles. All sites are 1st come 1st serve and the campground fills often by mid-afternoon. 8900' elevation in Kauwanechee Valley often sees 40 degree overnight temps in July. Interior roads and parking are all asphalt. Tent pads at each site. - Trailbuddy

No trees -- beetles killed them all. Not pretty, and there was little privacy between sites. But views of surrounding mountains were very good as a result, and stars at night were great for the same reason. - Prof Dan

Still a nice campground even without the trees. The mountain pine beetles that have killed so many of the majestic tall straight pines trees in Colorado, have sadly struck here too. Over a couple years the various loops have been closed and the dead trees removed. The tallest trees left in the parking areas are at most 10-12 foot tall - but growing and healthy. During tree removal, it appears that the campground layout was changed to have fewer sites with more room between sites. I don't remember if the sites were asphalt before, but they are level. Most sites are back-in and available for tents or RVs, some sites are tent only set up for small groups, and some RV only sites are pull through. I enjoy ranger talks, but lightening cancelled the evening's program. On the nice night, a ranger gave a very informed and specific talk about geology of the tundra to the lower treed areas - very nice! Fortunately, the rainy night happened after the herd of at least a dozen female elk meandered through the campground with the lone male, and two babies. We watched for about an hour and one-half as the fire-rings provided an ash snack for the females. We will return. - AluminumCloud

Can't believe this campground hasn't been reviewed more frequently. It's an excellent campground, located between Ward (8 miles away) and Allenspark (8 miles away) at Peaceful Valley. There's actually 2 campgrounds here, Camp Dick (with 40 sites) and Peaceful Valley (with 17 sites). Stayed at Camp Dick over the Memorial Day weekend 2016; rate is without senior pass discount (half price), and did require a 3 night minimum since it was a holiday.
Sites are well spaced, some in the open, some in the trees. CG is in a valley with a stream running through it, quite a few sites are streamside; there's also a cul-de-sac with some sites, in the trees and a bit more private. Each site has a fire ring, table, separate grill and tent pad. All are well maintained and cleaned regularly. CG road is paved; sites are gravel and level.
Family friendly CG, can accommodate a variety of campers/RVs. No hookups at all, and common water available, but faucets are not threaded. Firewood available on site from host. Host very friendly and efficient. - ThomInColorado

Great campground. Within 1-2 hours of Boulder/ North metro Denver. Dry camping, but we had a generator so no problem for us. No amenities, just a great get-away location. Kids had fun exploring the stream, riding bikes, etc. Will definitely return! - co_campers

Very nice National Park close to Estes Park, in fact this is where we had to stay to visit Estes Park. The campground sites are very spread out and water faucets are available through out the camp but you need a water cheater to hook up. No dump so come empty. We would never had found this park had Estes Park not been full, so sometimes things do work out. - monaco cruiser

I use RV Park Reviews a lot, but admit I don't write too many reviews. I am doing so for this park because of the negative remarks from the last few reviews. Our 2 night stay was more than satisfactory. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. There were several places to walk the dog. One area was beyond their fence but one side was on a road hardly used. I walked our dog there numerous times and never had to move for a vehicle, or be concerned for our safety. There is a large number of workers in the park but only one started up his truck before 6am and did not leave it running. It is pretty hard to avoid parks without "permanent" residents anymore, but I think this park does a good job of accommodating their needs with those "passing through." Bottom line, glad we ignored the negative remarks and took a chance on Red Mountain. Our stay was fine and we would return. - J&C

Check-in by a somewhat surly lady, we could not make her produce a smile.
When you are viewing the campsite on Google Maps and see highway 40, an airport and the railroad nearby, don't worry. The road is quit during the night, the airport has only a few movements of private jets during the day and the railroad is running through a 100 ft deep valley behind the airport. No problems here.
If you are making a reservation, ask for a site far away from the natural gas pipeline maintenance workers! They have the annoying habit to start their diesel trucks at 5 AM (yes: 5 AM), right below your bedroom window, leave them running for 15 minutes and then drive away to work. The 'quit hours' obviously don't count for them.
Restrooms and showers are very clean, but the all doors inside are only 3 feet high, from your knees to your chest. And one men's restroom and one women's restroom had no door at all, we never saw that before.
The Wi-Fi antenna is on the office building, so the signal strength is very much depending on the distance to the building and the number of RV's in between. We had a very weak signal at our site, but near the office Wi-Fi is very good. - Bluesbirdy

Nice park, a bit above average. We did get a level shaded site. All utilities worked well. Restrooms/showers were clean and nice although my wife would have preferred more privacy than half (saloon) doors for the changing area, which I found a bit small. The owner/staff were very good and responded to the smallest problem or the largest (Wi-Fi) which then work very well. Road noise was not bad but the airport (very little usage) would make you take notice. Like most towns Kremmling is functional but a short drive will take you to some very nice mountain scenery. - gumper

The rate reflects a 50% Senior Pass discount. This campground is one of several National Forest Service campgrounds on the shore of Green Mountain Reservoir in White River National Forest. The GPS coordinates are 39.87944, -106.27722. It is the only one that takes reservations (recreation.gov). It is very convenient, just off of Highway 9 but has almost no traffic noise. The road into the campground and all interior roads and sites are dirt/gravel. Sites 1 – 32 are spread out along the shore right next to the lake, some with great views of the lake and surrounding mountains. They are the best for views but most are hard to level for all but the smallest RV, unless you are skilled at leveling and have ample blocks. We are 27 feet and were able to find a spot where we could level. Sites 33 – 44 are away from the lake, but are nice, long level sites. Some of these would be suitable for even the longer RVs. There is no fresh water or dump, nor are they available at any of the campgrounds on the lake, so come with full tanks and plan on leaving with full waste tanks. There are vault toilets. When we were there, campground hosts were present. Depending on the source, the campground closes for the season on September 14 or 26, so best to call to confirm closing date during the September period. We did not have a Verizon signal. There are few trees so getting satellite is not a problem. There is a great 3 miles hike around lower cataract lake about 15 miles away. We would definitely stay here again. - TheJim
