Family/kid friendly. If you have kids who like to swim in a warm pool, like hay rides, parks, and a bouncer/trampoline, this is the place for you. Our kids had a blast. Pros - activities, pancake breakfast, clean restrooms. The sites are level, well-shaded, and although close together, they did a great job separating them with trees. Cons - the biggest was no fire rings at individual campsites - instead, you had to walk (or rent a golf cart, as many did) to a common area and use a fire ring there. Impossible to sit around the fire while the kids are asleep inside, or to start a fire in the morning while the rest of the family is still getting up. The other con - it was right next to I-25 and a busy train track. Even though we had layers of trees blocking the views, the trains were loud and frequent (seemed to be at least every 30 minutes). We would likely return, primarily for the kids. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I have been RV'ing for over 25 years and can say this was the worst place I have ever stayed. Check in took forever as lady did not know how to work a computer and had to keep re-trying. Only positive was escort to site, as it would be hard using map provided. Sites were so un-level that rear tires were a foot off ground and still not level. So many untrimmed trees that slide out could not be moved until I went out and cut limbs back. After moving rig two times and using all blocks I could find it did level up. Then came three days of kids running around in golf carts unsupervised. Kids shooting off fireworks when it was against campground rules. No one from campground was ever seen trying to stop kids from running wild. I have stayed at the YB park in Wichita Falls Texas and had a great time. This one, not so much. I will go out of my way by 100 miles so as NEVER to stay at this park again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.Undo

Easy to get to, right by the freeway, but not loud. It actually feels like you're in the forest even though you're in the middle of the city. Staff was friendly at check in and around the park. Biggest complaint and the reason I wouldn't stay here again, is the hills. Most of the sites appeared small and some would require backing downhill into your spot. The escort taking me to my site drove the golf cart up the huge hill so slow that just before I reached the top I lost traction and couldn't make it over the top, I had to back down the hill and come up with more speed to make it. Trees were so close in the spots that an awning couldn't be put out, but there is enough shade that it isn't needed. There wasn't a lot of choices in this area and this one was ok, would stay here again if we had to. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Travel Trailer.Undo

First, we are Huge Jellystone park fans. Have been for decades. The owners of this campground are super friendly and we enjoyed their hospitality. This campground just doesn't seem as groomed as others we have visited. The sites seem wedged into the sloping terrain, and heaven help you should it rain (a regular occurrence) as this place will get muddy fast. While there are a number of activities advertised at the campground, they do not live up to the Jellystone norm. Where most parks have a large common hall for movies and activities, this location has a caboose, which was much too small. While we did watch a VHS movie on their small TV, a movie on the big screen in my coach would have been a better experience. This park is famours for having a busy train track running along it's eastern edge. The trains never blew a whistle and were never a disturbance.

If you are going here to see Yogi Bear then it is fine... otherwise, I'd find somewhere else. The activities described on the website did not even come close in real life. The "slide" is some plastic on a hill into a mud puddle. The pool was ok, but small and did not seem heated. The fishing pond is only ok, if it is your first time fishing. Movie night is a 27" TV and a VHS tape. None of the other activities were scheduled while we were there. Fire department removed most fire rings. The staff was friendly. Renting a golf cart was a big hit. Disc golf was fun. Yogi was fun. Dog park was nice. The site you get is going to affect your opinion of this park a lot. It is on a pretty good sized hill with spots carved out wherever they could. Anywhere up the hill has lots of trees and are well separated. Some sites are big with easy parking and others are very narrow with difficult parking. At the bottom of the hill it is pretty open but most of the spots seemed cramped. We were in 110, which was narrow, but is the last site before a road so it felt big. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.Undo

Other than being way overpriced and the fact that it is right next door to some very busy railroad tracks, it is not as bad as some reviews I've read. The staff was friendly and helpful and the site (175) had a beautiful view. It was safe and during the summer I'm sure it has a bunch of stuff to do for families. However, we used it for location as it is close to relatives in Castle Rock and there are simply not a lot of RV parks around here. Don't know if we'll stay here again but not a horrible experience all in all. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

My Army daughter and her husband came from Georgia to visit with myself and her brothers stationed at Ft Carson. The Staff and owners went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. We really liked the all-you-can eat pancakes every morning for only $3.50 with complimentary coffee. I am used to campgrounds with landscaping and grass...but I realized when talking to the owner that this is kept as natural as possible as to not upset the eco balance. No fake bushes or flowers...the sites are private with scrub oak separating them. We loved the Rescue Goat program and heard that they expect a bunch new babies spring 2013, so we are coming back!! We also loved learning about the history of the land and the railroad running in front of the park. This park is very unique with a ranch and a real cowboy! We felt a genuine down-home attitude and are excited about the plans to improve and increase the outdoor family education they have in mind.

Way too expensive for what is offered. Hilly area for a R.V. park. All gravel roads that are OH so steep. Narrow sites when using slide outs.Lots of highway and train noise as the tracks are right beside the property. It was rather warm and I checked the voltage out after my A/C kicked the breaker out on my motorhome. Power was Very low. I contacted the staff, when they checked it out they agreed but what can they do. I worried about burning out my compressor on the A/C with the low voltage. I would Not camp there again.

We stayed here 3 days so we could attend graduation at the Airforce Academy in Colorado Springs. Interior roads were extremely rough, sites narrow and not level. We would not have had room to put out a slide if we had one. Bathrooms and showers were clean, but laundry was not. They had a sewer issue while we were there and locked all the sewer caps while they worked on it, which was fine. They didn't unlock them all when finished and it took an hour, 2 phone calls and a trip to the office to get someone to unlock the cap so I could dump our tanks when we got ready to leave. We will not stay there again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.Undo

Very unimpressed with this campground. Entrance and interior gravel roads in horrible condition - no problem with 5 MPH limit - faster than that the RV might have shaken apart. We have a triple-slide 36' MH and the "premium" site we had was probably the 2nd worse I've ever seen - the sites had 10-12' high "privacy" shrubs/trees in between each site, approx 10' wide as well. This made our site so narrow that slides on 1 side were in in the shrubs (so I had to crawl under slides to get to electric/water/sewer) and I had less than 3' to walk through on the other side. Also the sites were very unlevel - had to drive up on boards to get even close to level. Upon arrival the staff first positioned me so that entrance step was less than 1' from the fire ring! While they had lots of kids activities, they were generally very unorganized and they did not have enough supplies. Activities like the family hay-ride were not impressive either. Would not ever stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.Undo

We have stayed here before because it is close to our friends' home. However, we think they raised their prices too high since it is right next to the railroad tracks and trains go through all day and night. Since they are so high we just stayed one night and then moved to the State Park in the Denver area. Nice staff and very helpful.

The best sites are on top of a hill, furthest from the railroad tracks that are used constantly by long, noisy freight trains. Sites are narrow, fire rings are placed too close to the neighboring sites so you have your neighbors get together right outside your window. Sites are NOT level as you go up the hill and if you want a pull through and have a trailer with low ground clearance- forget it. You have to go up one side of the hill on a very narrow road and half way down the other side. This park was not designed for today's RVs with slideouts. They don't maintain their road, which is extremely rutted due to rain (natural speed bumps), the bark park is unusable by any dog of less than about 25 # as they can slip through the fence. No chicken wire to prevent that. My dogs were not able to play in there as they are 7 & 18 pounds and got through the fence easily. Like another reviewer said, kids' activities are haphazard at best and they ran out of s'mores at the bonfire early. To their credit, the rangers did help me solve a problem with my water heater without charging me. Being less than 100' from the railroad tracks was a challenge. Thankfully, I was only there at night. They are WAY too expensive for the amenities they offer. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Absolutely a 10. This is a great location with easy access to Denver and back down to Colorado Springs. Yes, there is some highway noise and some train noise and I was at the very front facing railroad and interstate and had absolutely no trouble sleeping. My girls 7 and 4 had the best time with Yogi showing up at our campsite for several minutes for my 4 yr olds birthday breakfast. All office staff, field reps, campers had a smiles from ear to ear. Will do it again with my 35ft Jayco travel trailer. A+ pool, laundry, location, friendly Yogi team. My wife and kids are looking forward for a longer stay.

We absolutely love this campground! I grew up camping at Yogi Bear campgrounds (La & Tx) and continued the tradition with my kids here in Colorado. We've been to other Yogi Campgrounds, but this one is our favorite here! The staff is the best, the activities are fun, the pool is great, the fishing pond is fun, and the all you can eat pancake breakfast is delicious and convenient. We love the golf carts: makes it easier to get around. We've been going to this park for a couple of years now, and I'm surprised by all the wonderful changes and how quickly it's growing. I would highly recommend this campground, especially for families! It's our favorite vacation place to be! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Campground Cabin.Undo

My family and I have just spent an absolutely wonderful weekend at the Jellystone Park in Larkspur. We celebrated our youngest son's fifth birthday here yesterday and he said it was his best birthday ever! Our site was clean and large. The views were beautiful. I had a great escort to my site and parked and set up with ease. This means a lot to me as I drive and set up our motorhome while my husband is at work. Any extra help that I can get is great. My parents came up from Denver for the day and we had so much fun. We rented a golf cart and used it to easily get anywhere we wanted to go. We started out with a pancake breakfast in the morning followed by a visit to the goats and the tipi village for a story and a chance for the kids to draw a picture of their experience with the goats. The kids learned a lot about goats and didn't even realize they were learning. Later, we decorated our golf cart in a Mardi Gras theme and met at the ranger station for a golf cart parade around the campground. My kids had so much fun decorating the cart with Grandpa and throwing candy to the kids around the camp. It was a memory that will last a lifetime for us. Those are the moments that we try to capture when we camp. After our parade we went to the caboose for a Cajun Food tasting event. We tried Sausage Gumbo and Red Beans and Rice. There were several options and they were all delicious! We didn't even realize how much we liked Cajun food and are going to look up some of the recipes. This really added to the experience. I had lined up at the Ranger Station for Yogi to visit our site at 4:15 for my son's birthday. They had different options available and I was able to pick the one that worked for us. They were right on time and he was thrilled. Yogi brought balloons and a toy along with a birthday card. He helped us to sing "Happy Birthday" to our son and came with lots of hugs, even a big one at the end for Grandpa. We pulled out the old fishing poles and went down to the pond to try our luck. We weren't able to catch anything despite our valiant efforts, but that's how it seems to go every-time we fish. Someday we'll get one! In the meantime we have a blast trying. We cooled down after fishing with a dip in the pool for the kids. The water was warm and they really enjoyed it. It was a great finish to the activities for the day. I was officially worn out and so were my kids. We slept like rocks. That is what I call a great day camping! This is an ideal campground for families to really enjoy their kids. Yogi seems to bring out the best in all of us. We had so much fun, laughed until it hurt and made memories that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend this campground. We have been coming here for the last few years and love it. It is only a few miles from my home but when we are here, we are on vacation! We are close enough to run to any of our obligations while still getting away for awhile. We enjoy the different themed weekends and will be back again later this summer. Thank you Yogi Bear for delivering a wonderful weekend! We will see you next time! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.Undo
