This park is truly a hidden gem! We never expected to have a campground in the city where you can't even see the city. This is a huge city park with lots and lots to do in it. They have horses, boat rentals, beach, lots of trails and biking. Electric only sites. Good cell coverage. The sites are HUGE. Easy to get to from C-470 There is a little noise from the C-470 traffic, but we didn't notice it inside. No shade. We would definitely stay here again. - jacknpeg

Our site was very spacious and level. The road is paved and well maintained. It is an easy ride into Denver. 2600 acres just outside a big city -- great combination. The down side is if you have dogs, which we do. There isn't really any grass; it is brush, which is cut back for the sites. My dogs didn't like walking on it. There is also some foxtail around, which can be dangerous for a dog if it gets in its eye or nose, so you have to be careful. Still, it's a terrific value and we would definitely return. - Dapper

Wide gravel site. All interior roads paved and well maintained. Dump station and water fill station easily accessible to 45' motor home. Dumpsters scattered throughout park. - blumarlin

Horrible, horrible place. The biker bar across the street and jake brakes trucks on the street will ruin your stay if the office staff doesn't finish you off first. After traveling the country for two years we have never been treated more rudely anywhere. If you can stay anywhere else in the Denver area we highly recommend you seek out other locations! - Russell01

Tight Tight Tight spaces for Big Rigs! Poorly maintained pads. Our concrete was cracked and broken ALL over and common areas full of huge tree roots and tree stumps from dead trees. Many sites are VERY unlevel. Utility boxes are old and broken. They allow cars to park in the roads between sites which makes for hard maneuvering. Biker bar across street causes major issues with loud music if you are on the side in front of the office. Small pool. This is a really old park. I would not recommend even for an overnight if you have any RV over 35 feet. All pull thru sites are buddy sites, so you share your common area which is very small. - TX Travel Lover

This was the worst RV Park experience I've ever had. I arrived after an 8 hour drive from Albuquerque. They charged my credit card and then led me to my trailer site and I backed in and set everything up. I ran down the street to Camping World to get some supplies and when I returned, the night manager and another trailer were sitting in front of my trailer looking upset. They told me that I was parked in their space and had to move. I said that this was the space that they led me to and I made my reservation 2 months in advance. They told me that they don't reserve particular spaces and I had to move. I asked where I was supposed to move to and they showed me the "overflow" space right next to where I was. On the map it shows the this space as the dog walk and there were obvious signs of much peeing and pooping on the grass. I said that I'm not paying $175 to park 3 nights in the dog toilet. Then I was told that was the only space remaining. I said if you don't reserve particular spaces for anyone, then why does this other trailer get the space that you put me in? They said it was because they are staying 10 nights for $600. So after much yelling and screaming with the front desk, I demanded my money back and left. Never, ever stay at this RV Park! I ended up having to stay in a parking lot since all other RV parks in the Denver metro were full. - Jay Leutwyler

The spaces in this park are very narrow & no space to park tow. My slide was almost touching my neighbor. Couldn't open awning because of closeness. Roads are very narrow & poorly maintained. Many old RV's with people living in them. Have 33 ft. rig & had difficulty getting in spot because of cars parked part way in road. Broke passenger mirror because of this issue. In addition, I did not feel safe here. I am a Thousand Trails platinum limited member & will contact them about my concerns, misleading pictures, & representation of this park. - vickie438

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith

This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943

This park is listed as "Big Rig access" which we found is NOT TRUE if you are over 32' long. We had trouble making a turn to get out and rubbed a tree after sliding on loose gravel. Park is heavily wooded with sufficient space between sites, both nice features, but we only saw 2 or 3 truly level sites. The remainder were badly sloped requiring blocks or planks. Our front tires were on 4 layers of blocks and barely touching once we put our jacks down and we still were not level. Some loose gravel and a lot of dusty dirt until it rained, then everything was dirty. The lady in the office was nice to deal with and very helpful. The gentleman there not so much. First time in 7 years of RVing we had to pay ($23) to dump in addition to the nightly fee. Showers are coin operated. Will never return. - GrandpaDan

Staff rude and uncaring. Reservations here mean nothing, as they will give the site you reserve to someone else, and you get what they want you to have. Utilities in a state of disrepair and there is no sewer. Additionally, they charge $23 for you to dump your tanks. Grass was 2-3 feet tall. Trash and dog poop everywhere. Crowded and noisy. Low hanging trees. This place is awful and should be avoided at all cost!!!! - Creagin

We found this to be a nice, attractive campground, but then again we like wooded/natural settings more than rows of concrete. We only had a 30-amp connection, but while it was hot in Denver, this park is 2,000 feet higher and the air was cool enough that we didn't need our air conditioners. We had no sewer connection, but since we were only there two nights it wasn't a problem. It's very surprising that guests need to pay to use the dump station. Our electric and water hookups were on the wrong side, so we had to run the wire and hose under the coach, right to the middle of our camping area. The RV sites are a little closer together than we'd normally find in a public park. Our site #9 was pretty unlevel for our motorhome (low in back), but a shorter RV probably wouldn't have as much issue with the slope. AT&T had 2 bars of LTE and decent speeds, Verizon had 2 bars of LTE and was pretty slow. We didn't bother trying our cell booster. The interstate noise was noticeable when we were outside but it wasn't a bother. There's a trail right out from the campground, and a 1.5+ mile dirt road loop around Genesee Park which was great for our dog walks. Walmart is a mile away. We'd stay here again if we could find a better site (more level, sewer and/or 50-amp connection, utilities on the correct side). - LifeRebooted

Location, location. Finding a spot in the Denver area is very hard. This park is near I70 and U.S. 6. Easy to get to most attractions. Tight spaces and a lot of turnover. Very nice picnic area and playground. Odd requirements to register. You must show proof of ins. and regist. for all vehicles. There are gravel pull throughs long enough for most rvs and nearby tow vehicle parking. A downside is little physical security. Park is open at night with no gate. Sheriff patrols occasionally. We had no problems but would have preferred more controls. Limited 50A sites. We would stay here again. - captaincakes

Fairly quiet location. Sites are close together so if you have a bunch of slides on both sides and use your awning you aren't going to be happy. Level gravel site. - mrracechaser

We rolled up midweek with no reservations. The amount of paperwork to get a site was crazy. DL, registration, proof of insurance. Then we had to be "escorted" to the pull thru 30 amp site. It must have taken nearly an hour to get from the gate to the site. The site is narrow and water, electric only. Gravel and right on top of the neighbors. - Brian n Barbara

In my opinion, the RV park was disgustingly dirty (mold in the bathroom showers) and there is no accessible shower stall. In my opinion, the park manager was consistently rude, unprofessional, and extremely difficult to deal with. The park manager was not helpful with 1) RV bookings, 2) Did not correct their amp service when it didn't work, 3) Took 2 days to get the water spigot at the front of the park fixed, 4) Allowed smoking in the bathrooms (instead of redirecting smokers to the designated smoking area), 5) Accessible requests were ignored and/or denied. If you have any type of handicap, in my opinion you should consider finding a different park. - PR Travleler

Right downtown but you feel you are out in the country. Had a Creek side site. Will go back again. A lot of hiking in the area. - Mleeder

Absolutely a great park. So close to downtown Golden (5 minute walk), right on Clear Creek. Great walking trails accessible from park. Will stay here anytime in the Denver area. - SC RVer

It is a beautiful park and campground. Sites are level and very spacious. My site (195) was shaded back-in but still had satellite reception. Roads are wide and easy to maneuver. There is a very nice off leash dog park that had mostly large dogs (swimming, etc) but all were well behaved. Check-in is a little time consuming. If you do not have a park pass you wait in one line to be told to go to park reservations office to check in where you wait in another line to purchase your pass plus obtain your toad pass. Very congested area but am told they are building a new area for campground check-in. Lots of construction at the north end of the park, but it does not affect the campgrounds if you enter through the Titan Parkway/Roxborough Park Rd entrance. Be sure to read directions on your confirmation. Very busy; get a reservation early. - Freedom Bus

Chatfield is one of our favorites in the US. Paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. The work campers rake the rocks and clean the sites after each camper leaves. We did not use restrooms. WiFi worked great the entire two weeks we were there. Lots of OTA channels and wide open to receive satellite. Strong Verizon signal. D loop is very big rig friendly. Sites are large and offer some privacy. As others have mentioned there is a construction project going on to increase the water level of the reservoir. It doesn't really affect the campground and we never heard it but when going out the west entrance you do drive through it. Bigger rigs must enter on the east side but that is stated in your confirmation. Huge dog park that you can drive to. We'll be back. - thekites

This is a great park. Hard to believe it is so handy to Denver. Paved roads. Concrete pad sites. Picnic table. Fire ring. Sites are well spaced apart by natural environment. Great family destination for a weekend of camping. Great for overnight stay if passing through Denver. Very big rig friendly. Very well maintained park. Will definitely return. - WinnMac

Location was good for us visiting family in the area. As others have stated, the speed bumps in the park are jarring. Our site was VERY tight, and there was a puddle of water to the rear left of the site. I suspect the puddle was from their sprinkler system leak. We parked our tow vehicle perpendicular to the RV in front, and had just enough room. This is essentially a mobile home park that has a limited number of sites for transients. We had no problems here, and it was pretty quiet during our 3 night stay. - novastorm

I stayed at South Park twice in a two week period and I will NEVER stay there again.
A Walmart parking lot would be a much better place than here.
Both times I was treated rudely by the groundskeepers and swore at twice by them!
And, when I went to the office to ask for one more night they brought up my reservation on the office computer, then said..."Sorry, we are all booked up until next spring!"
So I said, "Well, I guess I have to leave in the morning.", to which the park manager said "Yup!"
Well, at my next stop the very next night I was looking at my paperwork and realized that I had indeed already paid for that night...but they just let me go and still haven't refunded me for the extra night they charged me for.
I have several friends that live there and have been told that since I left 3 1/2 weeks ago nobody has been in the site I was in both times.
The park is very nice, laundry facilities are good and the swimming pool is awesome, but the RV spaces are so close and tight to back into, plus there are cars and trucks parked in the street that makes backing into the sites even more difficult since the sites are barely long enough for the RV's, let alone the tow vehicle.
30 amp plug was loose and had to use a padlock to hold my surge protector plug from falling out. Found out later that it is against park rules to padlock the power pole.
Plus, the pool and laundry room closes at 8 pm...hardly enough time for travelers to take advantage of these amenities.
It is almost like they really don't want RV'ers to stop there...only year round residents! - John_D

The only thing this place has going for it is their location. Staff are rude, people are rude, the facilities are dirty and the place has gone to hell in a hand-basket. I wonder if the owners truly know what's going on. - Randall S

We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

The park is older but kept up well the staff if very friendly and helpful. Spaces are very close together but workable. WiFi is very intermittent even with our booster. Good location to visit Denver and surrounding communities. - Greg and Brenda

Very decent park with really friendly staff. Very quiet at night. Laundry room was really nice, very clean, only $1.25 to wash & dry, & had a TV, VCR, & huge video library to watch! Bathrooms had shower & sink in them & are cleaned a few times daily. The back fence backs up to community park, trails, lakes, playground, & more. - User3782

We stayed at Prospect RV for 5 days in April. First let me correct a previous review. They do not have 50 amp service. At first that was a concern for us but it was cool enough that we never had to run the AC. The staff said they were trying to update to 50 amp but had to wait for utility company to replace transformers. There is a lovely city park right next door so walking dogs was very easy. Not far from all the things we wanted to see and do in Denver. It was a little tight getting into our spot with a 40' 5th wheel but we've been in worse. Getting out would have been impossible if not for the staff. My husband went to the office the day before we left to ask them for help. When we went out the next a.m. to pull out, every car had been cleared out in our row (there are a lot of long term residents). A staff person even went so far as to call me after we had left because someone had found one of our dogs ID tags and she wanted to send it to me because she didn't want him traveling without one. We would definitely stay here again in cool months and, if they upgrade to 50 amps, we would stay any time. There wasn't room for our tow vehicle at the site but parking was close by. All hook ups were where they should have been. - jgothier
