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
Jul 2010 - $25.00
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

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

This really is "so-so". It was a little dirty and a bit cramped but the staff were at least friendly. However they follow Greeley's rule about RVs not being older than 10 years. Which is really annoying. Would I stay here again? Only if I really had to. - WrathOfPhontex

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

Great state park close to lots of services and amenities. We had a pull-through site with a lake view. Our site was also next to the multi-use concrete path that runs through the park. Perfect! We went for runs on this path and also rode our bikes on it for over 20 miles in the city of Loveland. Access to the path was our favorite feature of the campground. We were in the first loop, which is a short distance away from the beach area and the lake. Services were excellent. As other reviewers have noted, this campground feels more like a city park than a state park. Most sites are well shaded. As with most Colorado state parks, water spigots are shared among campsites. We would definitely stay at this park again. - tripster

We have been coming to Boyd for a lot of years and always have had a great experience. The lake is wonderful for boating and lots of things to do.
Having said that, our trip this time was pretty good with a couple of exceptions.
We had reserved a site nearly 6 months ago (you MUST reserve early to get a weekend spot here in Colorado!) but due to work, we could not spend the first night, but opted to arrive early the next morning. We were surprised to see a tent camper in our reserved spot when we arrived! The camp hosts were not helpful and I had to call the Park Rangers. Turns out the camper was camping illegally and was issued a ticket by the Rangers and kicked out of the park. Never had that one happen before! Other than that, not a bad stay.
The Park is starting to show it's age and could use some updating, but is still pretty good. Good electricity and water spigots are scattered around. Lots of room at the dump station! Shower house was not clean, but was usable. (Lots of cobwebs).
Overall a good park, but upkeep was lacking. This I will pin directly on the camp hosts. The hosts only job appeared to be... well... camping and putting tags on the reservation markers. No campsite upkeep or cleaning was seen during our 4 day stay. It was disappointing because we love seeing how other hosts in other CO state parks maintain their sites with pride. No so much here. Too bad. I know it's dependent on the particular group of hosts and usually they are pretty good. No this time and it showed.
Having said that, we WILL be back next year! - colochoclab

This price was for the campsite. It is another $7/day for vehicle access to a Colorado State Park unless you have an annual pass. Park borders I-25 and is noisy. Site 33 is the furthest from I-25. That said, it is very, clean, tidy. Sheltered picnic tables where there are no trees. - Kiwijo

We stayed here for two nights. We were only able to get electric at the last moment. The site spaces are spacious, fire ring and table right by the pond. There is noise from I25, but since it was so hot we kept our AC on. The mosquitos are horrible at night. - Kwanyen

This is a nice state park that is convenient to I-25. Yes you do hear the noise from the interstate, but it didn't bother me. At night we had our A/C on so that drowns out any noise anyway. We stayed in the Coot Pond loop and our site was right by the pond. We had a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance and the sunsets in the evening were beautiful. It was very hot when we were there (upper 90s most days), so we didn't get to enjoy the outside as much but the mornings were lovely and evenings were nice as soon as the sun went down. They don't have any laundry facilities here which was inconvenient. Verizon 4G worked well here. The only reason I knock off any stars for this and every other CO state park is because of the ridiculous $10 reservation fee and the fact that you have to pay the $7/day park entrance fee on top of the campground fee. We travel full-time and this is the only state so far that we have been to that makes you pay an entrance fee in addition to the campground fee. Since we are traveling around Colorado for a couple of months it made sense for us to buy the CO state parks annual pass for $70, but it makes staying at CO state parks a lot more expensive than other states. We are from Florida, and FL state parks do NOT make you pay the entrance fee on top of the campground fee to camp there. - Love2Camp777

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

This is a rustic county park and the experience centers on the clear, cold reservoir. We stayed 1 night in site #S71 which is a pull-through electric only site right on the lake. Although we didn't have a water connection, there were spigots available to fill your tanks about every 4 sites and at the dump station. We could enter the water and swim from our site as well as from the adjacent sites.
It is an older park; the semicircular pull-throughs we doable but a little snug for our 31' trailer and truck. There is a new bath house one end of the reservoir which was very clean and had pay showers. The older bathrooms on the loops weren't in great shape. We had no cell reception (AT&T), but the reservoir is hemmed in by the mountains. It is a 15-20 minute drive into Fort Collins.
Please note that in addition to the nightly rate, there is an $8.75 reservation fee and a $7/day vehicle fee. - texasAUtiger

The campground is located at the south en d of the horse tooth reservoir just west of Fort Collins. Interior roads are well groomed gravel and sites are level. There are full hook up sites but we chose an electric only site for our one night stay.
Weekends are busy so book ahead. - n2916s
Sep 2015 - $37.00
This place was just a little weird for us. It is obviously very popular and very heavily used by locals for access to the lake. Tight interior roads for large RV's. We saw several RVs just back up rather than try to make some of the tight turns. Lots of boulders to try and avoid when backing into the site. It was also really noisy. The sites themselves were level and the utilities worked great. Distance between sites was reasonable. The lake was low but there were several jet skis running around constantly. Unfortunately, we were also backed up to the maintenance area which generated it's own noise. And, wow, it's expensive for a reservoir especially with the additional fees per vehicle per day. - Free

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
