Although this RV park did not have amenities and was very basic, we were happy to have it available. There is no other RV parking in the vicinity of Boulder. Since we wanted to visit our daughter there, we needed this play to stay. The management was friendly, but Wi-Fi only worked inside the building. - Ricky724

I don't even know where to start but will try going best to worst. The bathroom is clean enough to be tolerable - didn't use the showers but they appeared to be similar. That's the best. The sites are all gravel and dirt. No grass anywhere. They are literally side by side so slide-outs were within 1-2 feet of neighbor. You have to weave and duck to walk between sites. The whole place is pretty sketchy. We saw one site occupied by someone overhauling his pickup and apparently sleeping in the truck and my parents were nearly run over one night as the sheriff chased a vehicle through the campground. But wait, there's more. The host or ranger or whatever was the most awful, foul-tempered person I've ever encountered in a park. She yelled at people, accused one of our family of having expired license plates (they weren't), and ultimately kicked another one of my family out of the park (no refunds) saying their camper wasn't "legal". The alleged illegal camper was a recent private party purchase so no plates, rather, "In Transit", and keep bill of sale on you at all times, plate within 30 days - which is the law in our home state. Because that's apparently not the law in Colorado, she deemed them illegal and kicked them out (their pickup tow vehicle was plated and licensed). Her reasoning was they need to "keep the riffraff out". See above stories and know they aren't successful at keeping said "riffraff" out and her application of rules is inconsistent at best. We are a family of respectable professionals and retirees gathering for a family event in Colorado and we were treated horribly. Sadly, we had stayed at this park several years ago and it was much nicer and we never encountered such problems - so it has gone downhill fast. I will never ever consider staying here again. Find a Walmart parking lot - you'll be safer, better respected, and not be kicked out. - MamaK

It's a good place to stay when passing through Boulder. Some grass and gravel. We stayed overnite, but spoke with people who had been there vacationing and they liked it. Close to activities in the area. - skier1947

We were lucky to get the very last site that our rig could fit in - 30 amp electric only. The next day we were able to pull into a newer site with 50 amp and water. Sites are dirt but fairly level. We could not get satellite reception in the first site but were able to get it in the 2nd site. This is a very bare bones park with an automated system for paying. It's not possible to find an available site without using the machine which makes finding a site very difficult. You need to walk through and find sites without RVs and then go to the machine and plug in the site number to see if it's available. I will say the 2 park "rangers" were very helpful. We were here for a family reunion and all parks in the area from Denver north were full. Our reservation at a real park was mixed up so we had no choice but to stay here. It isn't bad for overnight if you can get in. Arrive early and hope! - dickens

I would have given this park a "10" except that it is located next to I-25 so you are never free of the highway sounds, otherwise it's a great place to stay for a night or a week. Campground was amazingly clean as were the facilities. It is located next to the St. Vrain river and wetlands so there it's something of a bird watching mecca. Also there are plenty of nature and hiking trials as well as fishing opportunities. As for the campsites there are 87 total about half are electric only and the other half are full hookup. Each site comes with a level concrete pad, picnic table and fire ring. - longgone

This is a lovely state park RV CG, located near freeway and very convenient to Longmont area. Sites are pull-thru in loops adjacent to the graveled interior road, sites are graveled, very spacious, and surrounded by grass. Sites have picnic tables with a wind shield. Reservations require registration with state park service reservation system, but once done, easy to make reservations. This appears to be a very popular destination for locals on weekends, so reservations required far in advance for weekends, but not so much during the week. Park staff very friendly & helpful. - JerryD

Gravel roads inside the park, however, park staff keep them watered so there is limited dust. Excellent sites, pull through and level. We stayed in the Kestrell Section. The only negatives are the added fees: $10 Reserve America fee per reservation and the park entrance fee. We purchased the annual pass since we stayed several days at several Colorado State Parks. No charge for tow vehicle as long as you tow the vehicle into the park. Easy access to interstate. Walking trails around the lakes inside the park. - Mustcamp

This RV Park has been completely rejuvenated after a terrible flood. New sites have been made. Unfortunately the price to stay here has escalated so that the park is no longer good value. All the sites are back-in. In half the sites, trees prevent getting satellite reception. Management seems unaware of the desire of many to get satellite TV reception, so all the sites backing up to the trees are filled while the more open spots are empty. There are rules against using charcoal barbecue except in the awkward pits provided by the park (Only one nearby for the motor home people.) We used to like this park, but because of the price and the problems with TV reception, we are unsure if we will stay there again. - hoppytoad

This city park is right in downtown Lyons and was wiped out by a flood in 2013. Most of the town was damaged also. So the city rebuilt the entire park. Group shelters, picnic, tent site, restrooms, showers are all new. There are only 17 RV sites with full hook ups, more tent sites. This park stays full. Locals flood the park on weekends with soccer games and other activities. All roads in the park are dirt so with a lot of activity the dust flies so you have to keep doors and windows closed. No WiFi or cable. The rates are up there with nicer RV parks where these services are provided. But the city can charge these rates because there is no competition in the area. On top of that they only take cash or check as payment. That's just weird in this day and time. The camp hosts were super nice and helpful. We were next to them for three weeks and saw how hard they worked. The city feels they need to charge for a lot of things; the park parking lots have a electronic parking machine where visitors pay like $5 for four hours, showers are coin op. Most disturbing, the city will totally rent out the entire park to groups that allows this group to totally run the park for their group for a period of time. The park hosts have to move out during this time. Locals are banned from this city park during this time. Makes you wonder what's going on during this time. Weekends and summer traffic in Lyons is heavy with people headed and returning from Estes Park. All in all, this was the most unusual park we have stayed at, but we made the best of it. The City of Lyons is in the tourism business big time so they need to step up and up grade their services. - Milton1 -_

A small park owned by the Town of Lyons. This RV park and adjacent city park was completely rebuilt after devastating floods three years ago. The town has spent over $8 million on the rebuild. Very clean bathrooms.
A limited number of sites with full hook-ups are available. They are all level and no pull throughs.
This park is now open all year. A creek runs around 3 sides of the city park and looks good for fishing but we didn't try. 20 miles to Estes Park via Hwy 36.
Management is friendly and conscientious. - Eric 921

The roads are winding and they're not clearly marked, so it is difficult finding out where to go.
We were woken by police officers shaking our tent at 4 AM, as was everyone else at the campground. It was horrifying.
It is always very full, and there are tons of loud children and infants. - Hayley W

We are full timers and spent late May through August in this park. This is the only park I know of in Denver area that is NO reservations - which is great. You can almost always get in during week days, and often on weekends, just by showing up around the noon check out time. First come, first serve. The 2 catches are that you must be out one day after 14 days, and you can't occupy the park on holiday weekends - 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc. They are reserved for boaters with passes. You can buy an annual $16 senior pass, which eliminates the $7 a day entrance fee. We paid $12 a day, plus the one time $16. Wonderful, spacious sites by the lake, and some not so spacious further back. - charlyhors

We stayed here about 4 years ago, and the quality has stayed about the same, the sites are spacious, and its a good value for the $$. The fishing is ok and they have one dock near the boat ramp you can also fish from. The rangers are very helpful in seeing you are sucessful in catching something. I wish they had at least a dump station on site. - Fitzjohnfan

Directions to campground were poor. We had no Internet or telephone service but 44 channels over the air tv. We were in the new section of the south campground up on a hill overlooking the lake. Site was somewhat level. Very breezy in late afternoon. 20 miles to Loveland. - daviputnam

Dogs are welcome but most people do not pick up after their animal. Many/Most of the sites are almost not navigable, very rough and impossible or difficult to get your RV level enough to use your refrigerator.
This is a County park and although a beautiful place the sites are small and not level. We have stayed at this camp ground 2 times and both time our awning was damaged but very harsh and sudden winds (gusty unexpected). Fishing is great but do not put out your awning. - Rex & Carol

We stayed in E38 and it was a great site for our fifth wheel plus a tent pad. My daughter had her 17th B-day Camping party. The restrooms were close by and the showers too for her guests. I loved that it was within walking distance of the marina. We rented a boat and brought it there. We rented a slip for 2 nights so we could come and go on the lake. It was a fun trip. The park rangers were very present there so if you want to come and be rowdy this place isn't the place to do it. They stopped a few times for our neighbors and once to our site because the kids had their iPods playing music after 10 PM. I really enjoyed this trip. Last year we got a horrible site, E11. It didn't house our 5th wheel well at all. There was a tree that got in the way of our slideout so we had to face it in a different way than probably intended. It put us in downward facing when we stepped out the front : / This trip was very fun and we loved the site and it was within an hour of our home. - themayerfam

We stayed in the electric/water only portion of the campground. The electric was 30 amp. Spaces are small with just enough room to let the slides out. It was hot in Denver while we were there and the power just could not keep up with the demand. Our air conditioner would barely work. There also is no dump on site. There is also a FHU area with 30 amp power. There are no reservations and these sites are hard to get. Wifi is not available on the sites; only in the clubhouse. The clubhouse is nice and spacious, food OK, drinks good. Not sure I would I would stay there again without a sewer hookup. - Phaeton Joe

Called ahead and was told by the RV park host that there was one full-hook site available. When we arrived site #14 was empty so we took that. Very tight space with a 90-degree back-in. Ok for a motorhome but a large 5th wheel may have issues. Good 30 amp electric with very high water pressure. Make sure you use a restrictor. We went to the bar to pay for our site. Very friendly lodge. Dinner was a huge smothered burrito which was delicious. We will be back. - StarlifterFE

This park is strickly for Elks Club members and their guests only. A very nice park with 40 sites. 50 amps FHU $20, 30 amp FHU $18. Water and electric only $16. They say they have a dump station. The lounge is very nice and they have lunches and dinners. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area. - kathiecarlson

We found a gem, but... It is now closed while the county makes rules for the campground. On the northeast side of Denver, we arrived about 8pm. Looking for a stop-over site for 1 night, we opted to avoid the other tacky run-down campgrounds along I-76. We chose to drive 6 miles for a quiet night. Arriving at the clean park/fairgrounds we looked for a sign to find the camp sites. We did find the camping locations using the internet. Parking on concrete and blacktop, all sites were very close together parking-lot-style and were marked "reserved" or do NOT park here. Although their website http://www.co.adams.co.us/index.aspx?NID=396 lists 4 separate camping sites, there is a 5th new camping area with an additional 4 sites with 50 amp and 30 amp hook-ups (no water). The nice sites are across the street - East - from sites 1-8. These new sites back up to the green park surrounding the Mann/Nyholt Lake. The area is gravel and almost level. A picnic shelter is at one end of the new sites. No water at these new sites. Verizon wifi was strong. Although no one from the county administration building was around to help us find a site, a local lady was very helpful. There were no activities the night that we stayed, and it was very peaceful. No late registration box available, so we paid in the morning before leaving. No Verizon phone and MiFi connections. We would return, but call first to be sure it is again open. - AluminumCloud

This is basically a place to overnight, it is not a destination. Being a fairgrounds, the sites are meant to oblige 4H and rodeo campers who need to be near their livestock, but can be used by anyone where there are no events scheduled. There is an excellent park only a few hundred yards to the east, and good fishing in the lakes there. There is no shade and all RV's must use the dump station which is in the wrong location on the map given to you at check-in. Also, the woman who handles the bookings can be very cranky. A good place to park for us since we were visiting family nearby, and very inexpensive. - je23dr13

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We had 30 amp service and water. The first two nights were very quiet. Only one other RV. On night three, ten rigs arrived between 10 p.m. and midnight. They were part of the work crew setting up for an event at the fairgrounds. The place got very busy. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so plan your arrival accordingly or call ahead. Staff was super to work with. - Traveller101

Lucked into this campground when we planned a last minute trip. About an hour away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Campground is situated in a beautiful valley. No hookups and cannot accommodate large RVs. (Narrow roads) Campground is popular, but we were able to come in early on a Sunday and get a first come first serve spot. Restrooms are pit toilets, but they are and I am not kidding, the cleanest campground restrooms i have ever seen! Hiking trails near campground in Roosevelt National Forest. Beautiful scenery and great place for spotting moose. Even had one walk through our campsite. - CansasKamper

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
