3 Parks near Grand Lake, Colorado
Aug 2015 - $45.00
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

What a beautiful campground just outside the nice village of Grand Lake, very close to the West entrance of Rocky Mountain NP!
Spacious gravel sites with grass and trees all around. Wildlife viewing at your site, in our case a moose crossing the campground.
About half the number of sites have no sewer connection, only water and electricity (like our site). Dumpsite available. Restrooms and showers were clean. Large TV-room and game room.
Wi-Fi signal is weak in the park, you have to go to the office or TV-room for good connection, but you take that for granted in a park like this.
After all we were lucky that the RV-parks on the East side of the mountains were fully booked! The prices are ridiculous over there, in Estes Park up to $70 a night. Are they cleaning your bathroom and changing the sheets for that price?
We know for sure, next time again on this side of the mountains. - Bluesbirdy

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

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

The back pull-through spots are very quiet. However, they are not level. There were potholes and ditch marks in sites 119-129. I saw one big rig with its front wheels off the ground. Our site was 4" off level sideways. Otherwise this was a nice park. The view of the Indian Peaks Wilderness is spectacular. All the pine trees in the area are dead, so the scenery isn't that great. You cross the bridge and you are in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The restrooms are dated but clean. Moose and elk right near the RV park. They had a road grader smooth out the interior roads, I don't know why they didn't work on the pull through spots. - scouter
