3 RV Parks near Julesburg, Colorado
Jun 2017 - $35.00
We weren't expecting much out of the Pony Express and RV Park in Julesburg Colorado, we were just looking for a park less than 200 miles from Aurora Colorado on the way to Lincoln Nebraska for a short stop. Like we said we weren't expecting much and the park delivered what we expected. Our GPS devices brought us right to the park although we had trouble finding it on one of them. Since it was right across the street from the Colorado Welcome Center we input that location. When we got there there was no discernible office so we called and was told to pick a site, the 50a sites are at one end of the row. The owner of the park runs the Welcome Center so we got settled and went there and paid for 2 nights. Everything is gravel except for the grass that you have to drive on to get into the pull-thrus. The hookups were convenient and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. We think that since we were so close to the Colorado Welcome Center and to I-76 we had real good Verizon 4g and cellphone reception. This a no frills park with no wifi so we were glad for the good Verizon coverage. The park and the area is probably best for a short stay. - Bob & Jo

Stayed 1 night. Grass and dirt lots. Fairly level. Place was locked when we got in about 5:20 pm. Manager waved us over and told us to park where we wanted, she would be back later. Cable doesn't work. Did get wifi code, when she came to collect the money for space. No trees, or facilities. Sure not worth the price. Don't think we will stay here again.
Nothing to do here. There is 1 road that is a semi circle. Manager/owner is nice and friendly. Lots of room for improvement. - Swcrafters

Stayed for one night passing through. That is about all you can do here. Easy access. Across street from Colorado welcome center. Interstate noise was minimal. Area is sparsely populated as mentioned in other reviews, so do not expect much. There is a store on site but it was never open during our stay. Upon our arrival (in the middle of the day) the office and store was locked and empty. The manager (nice guy) dropped by several hours later after we chose our own spot and said "That's how we do it around here! Just pick your own spot." Sites were dirt/grass and level. Hook-ups were fine. There are very few spaces at this campground and not all have 50 amp, so you are very limited on site selection. It's an open field with some hookups arrayed in a u-shaped pattern. There is no shade and on a Colorado summer day it became quite warm. Despite this, there was plenty of room and the kids had a great time with open fields and grass to run around in. WiFi was listed, but we were never given a code nor used it. There are no facilities to use. No pools or playgrounds. The welcome center across the street had 24-hour restroom access which I found easy enough to use. I felt it was a bit pricey for what you got here. But that being said, there was some attraction to being out in the middle of nowhere with hardly anyone around. I would stay again, my family probably would not. - mm1407

The owner was very funny and friendly on the phone when I made a reservation for the 2017 solar eclipse (Lake McConaughy, Ogalalla, and North Platte were all completely booked). His mother was very helpful and welcoming when I checked in. The two spots with dedicated fire pits were taken, but because I requested one on the phone, The owners, brought us a new portable fire pit to our site, where they had set up a picnic table and chairs. We left for North Platte for the day and when we got back they had brought us a huge pile of wood to burn!!! They all called us by our names while we were there. They brought out freshly baked cookies for us that night. Then, later, they came back with some frozen elk meat to send us home with!!! In the morning they brought out freshly baked cinnamon rolls for the entire camp!! I normally hate camping so close the interstate, and honestly I'll never really have a reason to ever stay in Big Springs again... But the McGreer Family is amazing!!!!!! Extremely friendly! Incredible service! Their hospitality and graciousness toward my family has ensured that we will DEFINITELY be going out of our way to stay here again!! - David Bragg

This is a delightful small family-run campground, very convenient to I-80. There is some slight traffic noise, but we slept thru it. Sites are grass, level, FHU and the wifi is great! Owners could not be nicer, brought our mail to our door, even. There is a small rec room open to everyone. Laundry has one each W/D, very clean. We will definitely stay here again. They honor Passport America for one night. Our cost is based on 2 nights. - SusanRon

This is one of my favorite campgrounds .Small super friendly people. This time our fridge was on the fritz and we needed ice so the lady brought us ice from her fridge ! If they have extra and you are not leaving early you receive farm fresh eggs. Sites are level, grass, easy hookups . Have my own hotspot so I did not use wi-fi . - Wildfire

It's the trains...it seemed every 20 minutes. They blow their horns 5 times going through town and you hear every one of them! Beautiful grassy sites, friendly owners: but those trains...0_0. - AdrianaW

What a beautiful RV park! The owners keep the place clean and mowed. There's a lovely little creek and bridge to cross it. Many trees including a young orchard that is home to many birds.
The campground is only about a block from town.
So the trains...yes there are trains...all day and all night and they are about 3 blocks away. They did wake me up but if we'd been running our AC I wouldn't have noticed them.
We had such a relaxing time here that we would not hesitate to return. - User3146
