3 Parks near Lamar, Colorado

This place is only OK for a quick overnight stay. It is easy to get in and out and my site is very level. There are so many flies that I only hooked up electricity and plan on opening the door as little as possible. The site I am in is filthy and next to a run down permanent trailer. There is quite a bit of noise from the road. The lady in the office asked if I had my own satellite and when I said that I did, she said that I wouldn't need their cable then. Unfortunately my site is so filthy I don't even want to set up my satellite. I will not return even for an overnight. $36.00 is ridiculous for this. - realgoodbear

This was an overnight stay. Full hookups on a wide open parking lot. Easy in and out. - ronandpatti

This used to be a Passport America member campground but isn't now. It's a motel and RV camp; 8 rooms, 1 "cabin", and 22 full hookup sites. Hookups are functional but old. Sites are nothing but gravel; no grass, no tables, no pads, not quite level. One men's room with pay shower (50 cents/4 minutes), outdated but appeared to be clean. Rules prominent, "NO REFUNDS" also prominent. Free cable TV is available (I used my dish), along with free Wi-Fi that is slow and sometimes fails. All in all too much money for what you get. - rv1guy2cats

Gravel trail into the RV parking sites was rather an abrupt drop off if you have an RV with little clearance. Pea gravel to park on. Since there were no other campers we pulled in parallel to the electric pedestal. One of the pedestals had a damaged 50 amp outlet but we found an undamaged one. No customers at the lounge, but we saw a car and went up and made a donation for the electric. Hookups are basically in the highway ditch but traffic dropped off after dark. - run2

Rate is donation. You must be an Elks member. There are 4 sites in front of the lodge on the gravel driveway. Only electric and there is 1 water connection available. You would be next to Hwy 287 about 2 1/2 miles from Lamar, truck noise is not bad late at night. You also can dry camp in the parking lot. Great for overnight stop. - margeandbob

This park is a work in progress for the new owners. They are nice; I hope it is not beyond them. Everyone has been posting about water. It appears to be ground water that is percolating up through the soil. In rural farm terms it is called ponding which can take acres out of production. On the farm it indicates that drain tiles are broken and need to be replaced. I think it is the same here. It needs fixing asap. There is some standing water but the bigger problem is the saturated soil that encompasses many sites.
We did a walk about and picked our site because it was dry.
The office was closed with a call number on the door when we arrived at 1:00pm. The owner arrived about 30mins after call. Once registered, he left again. The office was dark and dingy with no services offered.
The park is not dirty, nor are the horse barns. It is just untidy, junky, messy take your pick. The grounds need tending which is not being done. There are weeks of daily upkeep behind. A big dumpster and a all hands clean up day would go a long way. Even the flagpoles are empty. How hard would it be? This park gives an unattractive first impression that never gets better. The permanent residents appear to be firmly entrenched, not transient workers, not out of state plates. Some are unsettling at best.
There is a pool that probably looks good in season, but now, almost October, needs to be drained and covered. It is an eye sore. Some flowers, landscaping, and lighting would go a long way. Not happening.
The bathrooms are old KOA style and are adequately clean, as are the showers. Saw no reason not to use them. There is also a small laundry.
The park would be better lit at night if some bulbs were replaced.
Previous posts mentioned older kids, I'd put them to work. There needs to be a lot of effort here. I wish them well. We'll not be back to see the effort bear fruit. - Jack B

Stayed but one night, was just passing through. Few trees so somewhat windy but this is the Plains. Level pull through site but there was dampness around several sites which had been graveled over, ours included. That made hooking up a bit of chore. Something was leaking, have no idea what but there was no sewer smell so it must be alright. Easy to access. It is an OK place if just passing through and you need a night to rest. - Jake67

Sites very wet, lots of standing moldy smelly water. It was not rain water. Sites were large enough for our 41 ft motorhome and tow vehicle without unhooking. Water pressure and 50 amp worked fine. Did not put jacks down because of muddy conditions. Probably won't stop here again. - Jeepers55
