12 Parks near Greeley, Colorado
May 2009 - $20.00
This is a small RV park (about the size of a backyard) at 917 31st Ave in Greeley. There is no sign, but it's down a driveway behind an auto repair shop and apartment at this address. Water pressure is quite low, so had to hand fill the water tanks and use the internal pump. Of all the campgrounds I have stayed at this had the filthiest rest room (there is one coed rest room- when checking in was told to knock before using restroom) Owner only comes down on weekends, but you can mail a check or pay on the weekend. Although absentee management you are given a business card in case of problems or questions, and he is quick to return calls. I learned to leave my screen door shut, otherwise one of the many friendly cats in the RV park will invite itself in your RV! - Traveling man

This is our first stay in this RV park and will stay there again when we're in the area. Check-in went smoothly and we received clear directions to our site. Bathrooms and showers were clean. - Loving Retirement

I stay in RV parks for a month at a time, so I am not entirely clear on the nightly rate. This park is a relic, nothing has been updated in at least 40 years. The electrical connections are underneath, so you have to loop your cord around the top so it doesn't fall out. It is on HWY 36 just down the road from a massive feed lot, so there will be the aroma of cow from time to time. The spaces are incredibly small and the roads are even smaller, expect to have a tough time pulling a large RV into the spaces. The staff is very nice and the price is reasonable. They do also have metered LP gas, in case you will be spending a long time in the winter. Overall, I have stayed in worse parks, but not many. - Mike Benedik

Greeley RV Park is priced right for anyone who hates themselves. The staff are insanely rude and openly mock anyone with an older RV. They won't let anyone with an RV built before 2005 stay for more than a couple of nights. Nobody wants to use the bathrooms because they look like they've never been cleaned and the campground smells like sewage. The best thing about this place will be when it gets shut down for health code and environmental violations! - WrathOfPhontex

So sorry about this place. We stayed here many years ago and it was nice. Now mostly long term people with permanent things added to their sites. No one seems to pick up after their dogs. Parking was very crowded...had to unhook to even go to site. Office staff was very friendly. - travel2011

The park has power issues (very low voltage on one leg) which prevented the use of standard RV Surge protectors and low water pressure making showers a bit of a challenge.
RV Spaces are *very* tight. I had a family of HEAVY smokers next door that churned out more smoke than a Semi-Truck. With the trailers packed so close you get all the odors from your neighbor. Naturally they felt no reason to accomodate any nonsmoker requests. Had to resort to a filter mask. Due to tempuratures I was not able to use fans to clear out the RV air.
I was planning to stay through March, but ended up leaving after the first month. - WillD

We stayed in space where we had more room between our units as ours was older unit. Newer units with slides and awnings will find it more challenging. Laundry facilities are taxing the drain system and overflow the drains, yet no warning signs are placed out. When office closes, not always as hours posted, no one will answer telephone until voicemail is listened to the following day, unless Sunday. Read all park posted signs pertaining to video taping and supposed rules, it may make your stay "easier?".
Sites are "graveled" still have drainage issues. - Traveler25

Friendly owners which are very laid back. This is not your normal run RV Park. But I will stay here when ever we are in the area. Park could be greatly improved by making the permanent residents clean up around their sites. The Park has great access to the surrounding area. - From the Kites

This is more like a trailer park the a campground. This place is more then half full of permanent trailers.It is looking run down and old. The whole place needs a face lift. There are nice people living there but a lot of junk laying around. - dozerdog

The other reviews were right. It's shaded by well spaced trees, the price is decent, but it is populated by many permanent and semi-permanent residents--only three sites left for shorter stays. Sites are level gravel with green grass and picnic table, roads are hard packed dirt but not dusty. The pool is small and old, but clean and warm enough. Wifi worked fine. Lots of dogs and leashes are not strict. Toilets are old but clean, but the shower floors are creepy. Okay for a stop over, or to stay a month or two, but not great for a few days of recreating. We stayed only one night, then went looking for better facilities. - JunebugW

Although the restrooms appear to be recently remodeled, the overall campground was rundown and seedy. When I called for a reservation, I told the person I wanted a 50 amp, pull through, and did not want to disconnect the tow. When I got there, the receptionist said we had a 50 amp pull through, but needed to disconnect the tow because the turns in the campground were too tight. I was not happy. I got escorted to my site and had ample room to keep the tow connected. Likewise on the way out. The WiFi was a NoFi. Download speed was .2, upload 0, ping was over 200 ms. I did not use the dump, but my neighbor was using mine, with paper towels stuck around it for security. I couldn't have used the other one, because it was pointed away and the lip was broken off. You are staggered parked, so entry doors are across from each other. If you are grilling or sitting outside, your neighbors are 10 feet away. I'm not anti-social, but I like my privacy. I will not stay here again and will not recommend it. - F4GPilot

Staff very helpful and were able to accommodate us for the night. Someone lead us to our site and helped us pull in.
Site was a level pull-through with easy to reach services. Sites were close but not impossible so.
Using the word "resort" is a stretch, but the park is adequate for short stays. About 1/2 long-term residents. - daviputnam

Rolled in without a reservation, staff very helpful and were able to accommodate us for the night.
Site was a level pull-thru with easy to reach services. Staff were friendly & helpful. Someone lead us to our site and helped us pull in.
They were obviously getting ready for the summer season, lots of maintenance work going on. Pool was scheduled to open in May. - Our-Wandering-Casa

I've stayed in many state parks around the country and this is one of the first times I felt kind of disappointed with a state park campground. It felt the closest to being more of a commercial campground where everyone is crammed together, though sites are spaced far enough apart where campers can pitch a tent next to their picnic table. We only stayed 2 nights which was enough for us. I don't ever plan to return to this park as a destination stay. - Sara C.

Easy access from the interstate. Rate reflects the state park daily camping rate. Water spigots located in each row in all loops not at sites. Parking pads are curved but pull through. Great bike trail runs through the park. Great access to the lake. Easy access to the dump station. Reserve site online, there is a fee. Check campground map on Google Earth to select a site with trees or that suits you best. - Mustcamp

Rate above includes having to pay a daily admission fee to access the park. Overall, a nice place. We had an end site near a bath house that was quiet, clean, and level. Only complaint would be that there was no soap available in the bath house to wash hands with! The showers are coin-operated but have good water pressure and are hot. We didn't have time to check out the lake as we were visiting family nearby but it was nice to camp by. - calijame

We stayed here one night mid-week. Weekends are always full and there are rarely any cancellations. The camping area is built around several ponds. The mature area - sites 1-41 - is paved, has trees and shade, and the plumbed facilities are located on that side. The newer area has plenty of room for bigger rigs, and pit toilets in permanent structures. The roads on the new side are dirt/gravel, and the grass is natural growth - which means pretty scrubby out in Colorado where the winters are harsh and summers are hot and dry.
The picnic tables are covered by a type of awning which would provide some shade and maybe some wind protection. The sites have cement pads that are VERY level. We didn't have to unhook the Freightliner from our 45' fifth wheel, and even had room for the car although it was tight. The loop configuration makes it feel spacious, and you don't have neighbors right next to you.
Proximity to I-25 meant a bit of traffic noise from the freeway, but we weren't bothered by it even with the windows open. The volunteer hosts and rangers were very friendly and helpful. - Denise and Glenn

Great state park, lots of room and lots of sites. Great job of setting up sites; large concrete pads and picnic tables with wind breaks; great water/power/sewer setups. Some road noise from interstate which just east of the park, but the park is large and roomy. - FOSJ

Paved entrance road, but most interior roads are gravel/dirt. Pads are concrete and pretty level with excellent spacing between sites and utilities well placed. Sites have rubber-coated picnic tables that accommodate wheelchairs and have a permanent shade that gives some relief from the afternoon sun. They have a barrel or two for recycle (metal/glass/plastic). It appeared that the Park Police patrolled continuously so it is very safe. The park is right next to I-25, with essentially no barrier trees so there is some low to moderate road noise, but that did not bother us. There are several ponds that can be fished (bass, crappie, catfish, etc.) and licenses may be purchased at the entrance. - FreeWheeler

This may be a very nice park in the future, but it is in the developmental stage! We had called 45 days previously for reservations. As we were getting close, we called around 11:45 AM to see if anyone would be in the "office" during the lunch hour. No answer; left message and telephone number. Arrived around 1 pm and had reservations for two nights (made on June 24); no one there (only "office" was an RV with flat tires) so we called campground number again and left another message. Additionally, there were four other names and numbers on a big board in front of RV so we called all of them and left messages. One gentleman called me back and said they were out of town and a lady was on duty. Left another message for her and explained what the gentleman said to me.
We saw an empty spot (only one) so assumed it was ours and set up. (It was the only empty spot) No one came back that night and no one called. No one called on Monday. Around 6:25 pm a woman showed up at our RV site, presumably the lady I called. Apparently, they had no record of our calling and making a reservation, and she said she did not get any voice mail messages either. Thankfully, no one needed our spot Monday evening so we paid $35/night (very pricey for this new park without laundry facilities or office). FYI, all but one site are for long-term campers. That one site was full for a week (we had already talked with them to see what they knew about checking in). Hopefully, they will have short-term camp sites sometime in the future.
It is VERY close to railroad tracks and they are VERY ACTIVE day and night. Long-term campers are workers and start their diesel engines early; i.e., 5:30 am.
On the plus side for this RV Park, these are large, long RV sites; mostly pull thru sites; fairly good WIFI and cell service; no problem with satellites since no trees.
If you are looking for a short term stay, look elsewhere. We would not stay here again. - vmi1962

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a very new camp ground and is still under construction. It is off to a good start with well laid out parking on crushed asphalt (I think it will be paved in the future). Sites are long & pretty level. Parking is back side to back side near your neighbor with hook ups between for both of you, while your front door side has plenty of space for a table. It appears the owners are working on the spaces in between to provide tables, but there weren't tables during our stay. No bathroom / shower house right now, but there are some portapotties. It is near a busy train track but the trains rarely blow their horns. It's mostly just the rumble you'll hear, which some folks may like. Overall, this place has good potential; and is an affordable place to stay while exploring the Denver area. My rating is based on it being a good place to park if you are self contained and don't expect 'resort' entertainments. - Rambling Registrar

Very popular campground for locals during the weekend so pretty crowded, but clears out nicely on Sunday afternoon. Horsetooth Reservoir is beautiful and the campground has lovely views, even when the water level is low. There was some road noise from County Road 38E, but it wasn't too disturbing. Mostly spacious, pull through sites. Level, dirt pads. The roads are not paved, so lots of dust. We visit Fort Collins a couple times a year, and we have stayed at other private campgrounds in the area. This was our first time staying at Horsetooth South Bay and it fits our style more...more rustic, more space between sites, and more affordable than private campgrounds. The campground fee was $25/day but there was also a $7/day County Park fee, and you need tokens to use the showers, but still quite a bit less than other campgrounds. - Smashcamp

We chose to reserve ($10 if you call, less if online). For Full Hook Ups (50 amps & good water pressure) it's $30/night plus a vehicle entrance fee of $7/night. Pit toilets. Our site (S-6) was almost level and spacious with a picnic table and fire pit. Nice views of the canyon from our site. We had open skies for TV reception (just young trees planted in our area) and good 4G Verizon service. The interior roads DO have tight turns for bigger rigs. They've built a beautiful new Information Center as you come in. It wasn't open when we were there, but may be when next season starts. They also were just paving the county road (38E) that you use to access this campground. Be sure to turn in when it says Horsetooth Reservoir, South Campground whether or not you have a reservation. Wonderful camp hosts to help you out. The place was pretty quiet, probably because we were there mid September. - TJElser

Gravel roads and sites are in good shape. Electric was solid. Good satellite reception and OK Verizon 4G signal. Park was fairly quiet during the week. We used this as a base to visit RMNP. Would stay again. - Pjoe

We couldn't get in Boyd Lake SP when it was full for the weekend ,so tried this park. The worker campers in office were nice but open hours are very limited. Looked like nearly every site was taken by full-time residents or long term visitors from out of state. Were told the Park has been purchased by owner of Riverview Rv Park down the street and eventually will not be open to over night campers. It was ok for our purposes, with cable, wifi and good electric. Bathrooms were small and very outdated; so was Laundry room. Most sites were tight and in full sun. Easy drive up Big Thompson canyon to Estes. Can't really recommend and it will be a residential-type place anyway. - Annie's Song

Rate reflects weekly rate. Staff: friendly. Neighbors: friendly and, oh, my some were even long time residences. Yes, the sites are close together, but I've been at worse; we had a concrete pad with a picnic table on it which I consider quite roomy. It is on a hill and a bit tight to get into spots, but we managed with our 35' fifth wheel. Laundry facilities were clean. Location is great; not far to get to Estes Park/Rocky Mountain NP. Devil's Backbone a very short drive (1.3 miles) with great hiking and biking. Even Loveland downtown is not that far away. WiFi was relatively good. - MichelleKry

We have been full timing for two years, and this was the first time we actually did not stay. After driving through the park and noticing the spaces were very close together and several residences that were not in great shape, we paid the cancellation fee and left. The park needs some work; spaces and the full time residences needed to be cleaned up. We made the reservation in advance as we would be attending a wedding in Boulder. Ended up staying elsewhere which was much nicer than this park. - Wsurf
