8 Parks near Hudson, Colorado
Aug 2016 - $22.00
This little campground is trying to rebuild. It still needs a lot of work but the management is making progress. All utilities worked as they should. I would say it is still run down but it's a campground with a heart!! The staff and full timers I met were very friendly. I stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. I would stay here again when I return. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Oh my goodness, "rundown" is an understatement. I didn't use the restrooms because I was afraid of what might be growing in there. The train noise was deafening. I didn't sleep all night. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I would never come back. The one bright spot was the restaurant. The Pepperpod Restaurant was wonderful!! Good food. - lancecamper2

The campground is located immediately off Interstate , so there is some highway noise and is behind the Pepper Pod restaurant. It is basically "carved out" of the back lot and each campsite is white rock pads on dirt/gravel drives. There is little or no shade or privacy and the sites are close together. It appears to be an old facility that is maintained to the basic minimum. A huge drawback is the railroad the runs within feet of the back property line and coal trains go by every half hour day and night. They blow the horns upon entering the town and all the way through. Don't plan on sleeping through this. It is barely acceptable as an overnight stay because it is run down, minimally maintained and train noisy. This is too bad because there is a desperate need for a nice RV park east of Denver on I-76. - marker82

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

I would give this "campground" zero stars if I could! My husband and I were headed to Wyoming, then on to the Canadian Rockies, when we ended up needed to get our transmission looked at. The nearest facility that would even look at our motor home was near Denver, so we needed a place to stay for one night. There are very few campgrounds in the Denver area, and even fewer that had a space last minute. I called Barr Lake while we were en route. The woman who answered the phone said she was about to leave for the day, but would reserve a spot for us, we could do a self check in. Well, after driving and driving, we finally found the place around 6pm or so. I walked to the office, which was closed, but noted that our name was assigned a spot. I should back up and say that we were NOT impressed with the looks of this place before we even pulled in! As another reviewer mentioned, this looks like a permanent trailer park, with lots of junk laying around. We drove thru the place and could hardly believe how bad it was. After 11 years of rv-ing, this is honestly the worst "campground" we have ever seen! The junk was bad enough, but what really turned us off were the people wandering around the place, who looked to be on drugs, and/or were drug dealers. Very creepy place.
We'd been driving all day and were beat, but did NOT want to stay here. We found the site we'd been assigned to, then noticed that the electrical box had a pad lock on it! How on earth were we supposed to hook up? This dump wanted $40 bucks a night, plus an extra $2.00 per night for our little puppy (which is a joke!). We were so creeped out by this place we decided not to stay, it just did not feel safe! Ended up spending the night in a Walmart parking lot. The first time we've ever done that before. Certainly not comfortable or ideal, but it was 1,000 times better than Barr Lake! Oh, and the "camground" was also right next to a busy expressway and railroad track! - fly girl

Full hookups, pleasant staff, mostly gravel. Good value for Denver area. Close to Denver and good access to fast developing shopping mall with food and shopping. - Supdog11

Good luck in finding a decent campground on I-76 in CO. This one was adequate for an overnight, but it is really a permanent trailer park, with plenty of junk laying around the full timers. That being said, we felt safe and it was quiet enough for an overnight. We pulled in to several others on the way and would not even consider parking our RV. There is a great business opportunity for someone to open several parks in a cannot miss area. - Sir_Charles395

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

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 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

All the previous comments tell it all...HOWEVER...we paid $295 for the weekly rate plus $46 for one extra night! What we got was reliable 50amp electric, good water pressure and a sewer hookup in the back of the site. For what the owners charge they should be able to upgrade the washrooms, showers, pool, etc...and have a great park. When the VA hospital opens, they will have no problem filling the park. - loneranger

The owner is nice the very first days but changes very quickly. Once you are set up she is rude and spends her days checking on you in her little golf cart. I have nothing against owners checking that everything is ok by making rounds but the owner of this park stops and stares which is very uncomfortable. The restrooms are disgusting: the sinks are broken, the doors don't lock properly and toilet paper is always out! The showers are very dirty. The sites are not well maintained, the power doesn't work very well, I was always plugging and unplugging to have power. My husband's kids came for the summer and the morning after their arrival, Fay, the owner, came to ask me "are these your kids?" in a very aggressive and rude way. I said yes and she said "it's $5/day per kid to stay here". We left the same day!!! Not only it's outrageous as we pay for a site that is not even nice, the swimming pool is condemned and the owner will not fix it because it costs too much money and she told me, before we brought the kids, that kids were annoying and noisy!!! Nice! Anyway, unless you really need a RV park for the night or the week, I wouldn't recommend this park. She charged $269/week for a dirty, not welcoming, not well maintained site. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!!!! - Lt-11-03

The park was incredibly filthy, waist high grass everywhere, dilapidated trailers everywhere. This place was a majority of trailer park homes that were run down, dogs barking, trash everywhere. The pool was empty and the office space was a run down space. I literally feared for my life when I had to walk my dog to use the restroom. - S. Watkins
