We camped in the Lake Hasty campground. This is a pretty good state park campground, with huge sites. You won't have to worry about hearing your neighbors snore. In the loop where we stayed, you could mark off a football field in the open space in the center of the loop behind the campsites. We had plenty of room for our 41' motorhome in our back in site, with room to park our towed car (and another, if we had visitors) in front. The pad and patio is packed small gravel, and almost as hard as concrete. The site was quite level, and the grassy area around our campsite seems like we were on about a 1/4 acre lot between our next door neighbors on each side. There is no water hookup at the sites, but there are a few community spigots scattered on each loop. There is one dump station that serves the whole park, but it does have 4 lanes. We did have an issue with ants. We had an active bed in the middle of the patio when we arrived. We used some creature deterrent, and they weren't much of a problem the rest of our stay. We had weak signal for our Verizon MiFi, and no signal for our AT&T network phones. At times, we could walk a little way from our site to get a phone signal. The park is below the dam, which dampens the signals from the carriers. We had no problem with satellite dish reception for the TV, but there are zero over the air TV channels available. There is a small convenience store with a deli 2 miles away from the park, but if you need restaurants, groceries or WalMart items, the nearest town is Lamar, which is about 20 miles away. It's a town of about 36,000, so it has your basic needs. There is no one at the check in station. If you don't have a reservation, there is a self service slot to register and pay. Rangers patrol regularly, and they check your vehicle passes. You also need a state park pass in addition to the camping fee. We have an annual pass, but had to go to the visitor center to get a pass for our towed car. - Mike Hopkins

We knew that camping in SE CO in June was going to be a gamble. The first three days were 102 degrees plus and little breeze. Thankfully a cold front came through to cool things off and the weather was really nice our last three days. That said: we booked 7 nights but left a day early because we had already gone through THREE cans of bug spray and I was absolutely over trying to fight the mosquitos and deer flies any longer.
The campsites are well spaced out for the most part and were mostly level. There was a dead tree at the back of our parking area. Even with the dead tree 3" from the back of our rig, we had to stretch our power cable to the max to reach the pedestal. Overall a clean park with very friendly staff who work hard to keep up with the park's needs.
Definitely bring everything you will need and don't get low on fuel as the nearest town is 20 miles away in Lamar. Also, prepare for cell service to absolutely suck.
We MAY stay here again but would only go between October and April. - Team Lobster

We stayed here for 5 nites. Sites were electricity only(50 amp) & very ample in length for our 40'MH & tow. The sites were spaced away from each other for good privacy. Each site had a small shelter over the picnic tables providing shade & wind break . It was very windy at times. We were at the bottom side of the dam, but Lake Hasty was walking distance to fish or swim on the small beach. There was a convience store for bread, milk etc in Hasty a few miles away, but not for major groceries. We probably wouldn't stay again. - slawrence

Owners making great strides in developing this park. Great customer service. Infrastructure a bit limited - park hemmed in by a creek on one side and a shopping plaza on the other. Level site long enough for my 65'; some other reviewers commented on the train - the tracks are not near the park, and though you can tell there is a train passing, it was not disruptive. - EnjoyinLife

Owners making many changes and upgrades to include new water spigots, sewer drops. Road well maintained and was adding nice trees along front edge of park. - Rick H Smith

This park is not very attractive. Staff was nice, but confused. They asked us to pay at the desk, even though they had charged our credit card when the reservation was made the day before. They took us to the site they registered for us and another trailer was there. So they took us to the back of the park, next to a tractor. Spaces were adequate, but rocks placed at edges of the site made entry and exit difficult for our 39' fifth wheel. Dog park is small, but had nice agility play equipment. I would have rated the park several points higher but for the price. The value for this type of facility is in the $30-35 range. They charged us $45 base, plus $10 for our dog. That's a lot for dirt, gravel and a tractor view. The park appears to mostly have long term residents. - dem
