4 Parks near Lamar, Colorado
Oct 2014 - $10.00
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

We had stayed here before, but the place has gone downhill and the price has gone up.
Fairly level gravel FHU site, but interior roads are poor. Management doesn't seem to care where or how you park as long as you pay first.
We will not be staying here again. - Alworth

I have to say that I didn't stay at this park. I had looked at past reviews and because I was passing through the area for the first time, planned to stay here for the night. I called ahead of time and asked for a pull through with full hook-ups. The guy I talked to indicated that that would not be a problem.
When I arrived at about 3PM I was met in the office by a lady who told me to just go pick a site and let her know which one I took. I asked if they had cable TV and she said she wasn't sure but she knew that some campers used satellite dishes, not a warm feeling. We agreed in the office that I would take site 39 on the end near the exit. I drove around from the office to the site and found that it was to short for my 36' MH with out disconnecting my tow. I then circled the campground and found that ALL sites were to short. I returned to the office and explained that I couldn't find a site. The lady said why don't you take off your tow? I asked for a refund and left. I'll never stop here again. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

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

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

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. - bobojay

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. - lpampin

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. - MichelleKry
