We had a very nice experience when we camped over Memorial Day weekend. All of the campground attendants were very pleasant and helpful. We will definitely return to this campground at some point. - Becky Muncy

Beautiful campground, nice shady sites on a lovely alpine lake. It is urrounded by snow capped mountains, what a wonderful place to stay. Sites were gravel, all back in type, mostly level. Nice picnic tables and fire grates. Exceptionally well maintained. This is a rustic campground, probably not suitable for large rigs. Vault toilets. No hookups are available here, this place is for the nature lovers. It's right on the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park. Nice, friendly campground hosts. I can't wait to go back! - julievojo

Actually a very nice campground. Our pull-through spot was fairly level. Would have been more privacy and shade but most trees were cut down because of the pine beetle. Lots of activities for our children. The staff were friendly and the place had a pretty nice gift shop. Fraser, Granby, and Grand Lake were within a short drive. We would probably stay here again. - seven_campers

Lots of stuff for the whole family to do. This campground is part of a recreational facility that includes cabins, vacation homes for rent, and lodges. It is also the center for summer camps for kids and has many things to do including mini golf, craft activities, an indoor pool, a climbing wall, zip line, horse back riding and hiking trails up into the surrounding mountains. Some of this costs extra money, especially anything including horses. The campground itself is really only open through the summer, whereas the rest of the facility (including cabins and lodges) is popular for cross country skiing and snow-shoeing through the winter. You can rent bikes in the summer and cross country ski gear in the winter. This place is well set up for groups and reunions with all of the various housing options. The mountains are scarred by the bark beetle infestation, like pretty much everything in this general region, but the trails are still nice once you get up into the hills. The campground is otherwise not very scenic, but with all of the activities we never had to leave the property to keep the kids busy, and we'll be going back there sometime. - markandanne

Willow Creek Campground is part of the Arapaho National Recrecreation Area. There are 3 other public campgrounds in the area but this is the only one that still has trees since the pine beetle infestation. It is a great little park to get away from it all. The sites are really nice and private. Many are on the lake. This park is for real campers. The KOA crowd would hate this place. The road in is 3 miles of gravel. There is a one lane bridge which would require anyone hauling a trailer to turn right, turn around--there is a handy turn around-- and then cross the bridge straight on. There are vault toilets and no showers. Water is available. It is a very pretty little spot. I camped here in a tent but I am planning to bring my travel trailer nest time. - NT2013

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

This is our second stay at Elk Creek. We had a wonderful week stay here! Not much to add that hasn't already been said! The absolute best campground in the area.
We reserved what (in our opinion!) is the best site in the lot, #011, one year in advance, during our first stay actually! This site is a FHU that backs in a small meadow. It's like having a big backyard! Trees abound and it has a wonderful feel to it.
We will be back! - colochoclab

Small park, limited number of full hookup sites with 50 amp. Very clean and only 1 mile to Rocky Mountain National Park and 2 miles to Grand Lake -- loved the location! Staff was excellent. Some sites can be challenging to back into and as on a hill leveling assistance may be needed -- 41 ft motorhome with tow vehicle. Moose walking through park while we were there- a real treat. Definitely will go back if in area! - Rose & Noel

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

Beautiful area. Campsite was clean, with plenty of space. Beautiful views and very nice walking trails. A lot to do here. Horseback riding, buggy rides, a convenient little store. Location was so convenient. Only a couple of miles to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and a few miles away from Granby marina and restaurants. The really nice part was it was rustic so we got the feeling of "camping" with all of the conveniences. We were on a month-long trip from the east coast and this was one of our favorite campgrounds. We were in the first small loop, which had adequate space for us, but those who want more privacy, there are plenty of more spacious and secluded sites. Plan early...they stay pretty booked. Staff is very friendly and helpful! We would definitely stay here again! - Pungogirl

Very nice clean park, large site, we stayed in the FHU in the back of the park. No cable and few tv channels, wifi ok. Would stay here again.
Bull Moose were down by the stables. - 16 Crusader

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 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

Nice family run campground. Best wifi ever! No TV, no cable. Lots of families and hunter-fisher folk. Sites a little tight. Right next to the Kremmling hockey rink. No dog park, but pets are allowed to run in the open fields. - pbrodie

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
