Nightly rate is $24 plus $7 per vehicle. Aug vehicles fee waived for all military and vets regardless of state of residency. Electric only. Water spigots throughout campground. Dirt sites and roads in campground. Level sites. Sites are very well spaced. Picnic table (some covered). Many with some shade. Near lake. Some water-side sites. Birding opportunities through out park. Verizon signal okay. Extended from one overnight to three nights because it was so quiet and pleasant. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

The park was very nice with lots of trees. Beautiful view and very quiet. Only disappointment was we were under the impression that there was a beach for the lake, and there wasn't. Great place for a boat if you have one, but not for swimming. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Overpriced we think by about $7-8.00, but it's in Colorado. Full service restrooms, showers, but the showers are pay which we think is a bit much with the price paid for the site. They worked well though.
Second time stay. Lots of mosquitos to deal with. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Campground was a nice surprise. We stayed in Hasty Campground and sites were extremely large, roomy and quite level. The waterfront sites were great; however, due to the roof structure over the picnic table, high, large RV's would have a problem fitting in them. Electric only at all sites, so fill your fresh water tank or bring water jugs. There are water hydrants throughout the park. Lots of shade trees on most of the sites, but there are many without any shade as well. We had reserved #91, but preferred to be closer to the water so we just chose another. All in all, a very pleasant stay. Gave it a 9 instead of 10 since there was no water or sewer at the sites. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price includes $7/car load day fee and $24 camping fee. Being early in the season and midweek, we scored a lake front spot in the Lake Hasty campground (with electricity). It was very spacious, fairly level with a picnic table under a roof. We just barely fit width-wise with our opposing slideouts and the picnic table roof. No water or sewer at the sites. There is a dump station (no potable water at the dump station). There are water spigots about and a dish washing sink in the comfort station. The comfort station also has three sets of washing machines/driers for $1 ea. These were open the entire time of our stay. The bathroom part of the comfort station opened in the middle of our stay, that is where the change machines are. They didn't work well (either bring quarters or lots of small bills). My one attempt at a shower ($0.50/3 minutes, $0.25/minute thereafter) wasn't hot enough for me. There is a fair amount of hiking (around the lake, one-way through the park, and across the dam). I loved the view of water and the pelicans, but there were things that were off putting that prevented me from loving the place. I guess to throw it into a general category would be the other campers: campers two spaces over on both sides with loud music (during the day but still...OMG I am turning into my mother!), one with their dogs off leash, lots of trash on the trails and especially at the fishing spots, Sunday night people left their trash bags on the ground at the overflowing dumpster, Monday morning the ranger is cleaning up the mess after the animals got in it, during the week someone didn't get their fish carcass in the dumpster and again the animals got at it. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Biggest camp sites we have ever stayed at! Sites are HUGE! At least 60' between them. Very quiet. Tall trees and tons of birds. It felt like we were camping by ourselves in a park. Nice playground in the center of the site. Clean showers / bathrooms. Pay showers - $.50 / 3 minutes and up. Level site. Swimming beach down the road. Site available to us that night. Very helpful staff. We will go out of our way to come back here again if we are in SW Colorado! We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

We thought this was a pretty nice park. Some sites are very shaded and others have no shade. These are electric only sites with water hydrants nearby. It seemed to be a park that has been kept up pretty well. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the better CPW state park campgrounds. Sites on the east side of the Lake Hasty campground are heavily treed, large and spaced far apart. The camper services building with the restrooms and showers is open thru usually the end of October. There are 4 places to fish here. One of our favorite places in the spring and fall. It gets very, very hot here during the summer months. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of our favorite spring-fall Colorado State Park campgrounds. Very shady, level sites backing up to small Lake Hasty (not huge John Martin Reservoir). Up to 50 amp electric; lots of water hydrants scattered throughout campground; clean, heated restrooms (with 4 pay shower stalls in men's and 4 in women's); and a long, wide, 4-lane dump. Stayed here on way to and from short TX-OK- KS trip and shared the 109 sites with 4 other campers each night. Nightly rate based on weekday stay with senior Aspen Leaf Pass. We will be back! We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

$27 includes $7 daily Park Entrance Fee. Electric hookup only. Very nice campground below Dam, on Lake Hasty; it was quiet and peaceful on a weekday in Sept. Easy access off U.S. Hwy. 50. Spacious gravel sites, level, long and wide. We would stay here again. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$20 per night was for a 30A electric on a level gravel site. All sites are very spacious. There is also a required park permit, which can be purchased on a daily or annual basis depending on how many parks you plan to visit in a year. There was a picnic table (on some sites with a shelter) and a fire ring. There is a dump station near the campground entrance. The scenery includes many huge trees that help shade the sites. If you like walking/hiking/biking there are trails and roadways inside and outside the park. We saw many western kingbirds and doves. Their songs filled the area. The night sky is gorgeous as are the sunsets. The park was very quiet during our stay but I’m sure when it fills up during warmer weather, the noise level increases. The campground is 16-miles from town where there are most conveniences. We received somewhat limited AT&T cell phone service and slightly better Verizon data service. The park offers no Wi-Fi. We received a few OTA TV stations. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

While very popular during the summer months, the campground was nearly empty in early October. Most of the prime lakeside sites were vacant! Verizon voice and MiFi services were adequate. We would return to this State Park campground. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Gave it an 8 rating because there was no electric or lights in the women's side of the shower house. Otherwise great. Not much in the area to do other than fish. Colorado State Parks are almost too expensive for our tastes. We stayed here one night passing through, and would stay again if passing through.

We didn't have a reservation when we arrived on a 4th of July weekend. The park was pretty full but we still were able to get a site (although it was not in the shade of the big trees that are in the campground). Lots of families as they had some type of family event going on earlier in the day. As others mentioned were were able to fill our tanks from one of the many spigots located around the campground. My only complaint was that the men's shower room was being cleaned in the morning when we were trying to leave. My wife went to take her shower and the coin changer didn't work but one of the showers provided "free" showers. Nice campground, I would stay there again. There is lots to see in the area along the Arkansas River. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A clean well maintained park. The sites are very large. Sites 1 – 28 have little or no shade. All other sites have shade. The sites are gravel and reasonably level. From our site (37) we had no problem receiving the DTV signal. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (3G). The restrooms and showers were modern and clean. No soap provided in the restrooms. You have to pay 50 cents per 3 minutes for shower water. There is a coin laundry, fish cleaning stations, and a sand beach. The town of Hasty, 3 mile from the park, has a small store and a post office. The nearest town with a supermarket is Lamar CO, 24 mile south. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
