3 Parks near Grand Lake, Colorado
Jul 2015 - $40.00
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

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay here! The staff is outstanding! There is a wide variety of sites here, but all have fantastic views! Out site, RV#1 was very level and had full hookups. (Not all sites are FHU). We did have wifi, but it was because we were close to the office. We did have strong AT&T signal. The sites in back are more rustic and forested. The sites in the middle surround a small forested meadow and, in my opinion, are the best sites in the campground. Most sites will accommodate good sized rv's, our 30ft trailer was easy to navigate around. Moose are a common sight at dusk in and around the park. The big draw to the area is the lakes. There are several ramps within 5 minutes of the campground and the campground has ample overflow parking for boats and stuff. This is a very dog-friendly campground and our 2 labs had as much fun as we did! There is an off-leash area 5 minutes away, a must do! The only negative notes is a lack of pool and that the roads are packed dirt. Afternoon rains are common, and it can get a bit sloppy. We will definitely be back next year! - colochoclab

Elk Creek Campground is located just outside Rocky Mountain National Park, and is just up the road from the town of Grand Lake. Both are great places to visit. The people in this park aim to please. The bathrooms are spotless and seem brand new, with plenty of showers to serve the campers. The laundry room was also very clean and even offered an iron and ironing board. Our site was fairly private and level. We were happy to have a very strong Verizon signal. Our only complaint was that they charge $15 for a honey wagon service, which we thought was a bit excessive. We would definitely come here again if in the area. - dbcordello

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

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

This park is wonderful! It is very large and scenic. All people that work here are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of activities and fantastic access to Rocky Mountain National Park. Easy access and roads. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it as often as we can! I am not sure of the rate we paid, but it was totally worth whatever it was!!!! - Easter2
