Beautiful scenery around Leadville. Park itself is very rough looking although the tent sites look more appealing and have the feeling of a forest campground. We were told we could not get full hookups so opted for water and electric only. The roads are very rough, not maintained with very little gravel left. Spots are extremely tight and unfortunately our view consisted of a travel trailer on one side and a motorhome on the other. Showers and restrooms very nice. There is no Wi-Fi, cable. Walking the dog was problematic since the dog walk area was a tiny patch of scrub brush with some broken glass here and there. We had to leave after one night because of altitude sickness, so be aware of you may be susceptible. The trip to Leadville from the interstate was quite a challenge for the 37 foot motorhome. Some harrowing turns on a long uphill pull to over 10,000 feet. Certainly not a relaxing trip for us. Some TLC on the grounds would go a long way here. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Very clean restrooms. The sites are a little tight, as others have noted. The season is very short and I guess they need to make their money while they can. Owner separates taxable site fees from non-taxable 'people' fees, so the total cost can be a little confusing. It all works out and the owner does it so campers pay less taxes. We did have to pay $6/night for an extra vehicle. Very helpful staff in the camp store. Fun golf course a mile away. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Had a so called pull- thru site. the TT next to us was so close that our sewer hose was under there slid out.Pull- thru sites were so tight that we had to ask our neighbor to move his truck so we could make our turn to pull out. Asked management if they could trim a few tree limbs that were rubbing against our unit. I was told they do not trim limbs. Other sites had limbs that were trimmed. All in all a very negative experience. In 25 years of RVing this park is in the top 5 worst we have stayed in. Save your money stay else were.

The biggest negative is tightness of the sites. Big fifth wheels will have problems parking if the place is full. No Wi-Fi. Wired Internet service is in the rec room and it's fast. Mosquitoes can be a problem in June. The office staff was helpful when we needed to extend our stay one night. The location was right for us.

Interior roads are gravel and there are concrete strips for parking, picnic tables and fire pits at sites. Water, sewer and electricity worked well. It is a ways away from any major highways so no traffic noise. Sites are a lot closer than I prefer and noise from neighbors could easily be a problem. No Wi-Fi or cable TV. While we were there the park was very quiet, but also a long ways from being full. Part of the park has numerous pine trees. We were given an escort to our site. All the staff we contacted were friendly and helpful. On clear moonless nights the altitude allows for a great view of the sky. Note there is a $7.50 per person charge in addition to the $34.00 fee per site We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

The rate cited reflects a monthly rate including electricity and all taxes. They were able to accommodate our 43 foot rig though there only a few sites that can handle this length and also only about 7-8 50 amp sites. However, the weather is so cool at this altitude (10,000 ft) that we would probably have been fine with a 30 amp site since one so rarely needs air conditioning at all. Scenery is fantastic and access to the many wonders of the area is very convenient. The owner and staff are super-helpful and friendly. This is really a campground, not an RV "resort." Think of it as a cross between a Forest Service campground and an RV park and you'll get the picture. We would have gladly stayed the entire summer, but alas, my wife had problems with the altitude and we had to leave early. This is not uncommon in Leadville, especially if you're a senior. Nevertheless, we would stay here again in an instant if we could and we highly recommend it. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

The sites are very small so it can be a problem if the neighbors dogs do not get along with your pets. Just not enough space between them. Overall the campground needs some tree trimming and grass mowing. The was a horrible mosquito problem which could have possibly been helped had the grass and brush been trimmed. The dog walk area was nearly unusable due to the overgrowth of sage brush. It is now just a single file trail through the brush. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were hot. The camp staff was friendly and the ice cream social was well worth the $1.50. Not sure if we will return this could be a really nice campground with a few changes.

A helpful and friendly staff combined with a beautiful location make for a pleasant stay in Leadville. Clean bathrooms and laundry facilities, a large off-leash pet walk area, and nightly ice cream social add up to even more camper comforts. Although the sites are a bit small and uneven, Sugarloafin' Campground has our hearts. We look forward to another long-term visit. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this RV park several times over the last few years. It is a great park to use as a base camp to explore the area. No TV or Wi-Fi but 3G and cell is available in the area. Restrooms are reasonably clean, and the folks at the desk are very accommodating. Some of the spaces can be a little tricky to get into, but once you're settled, they aren't bad.

I would not recommend this park for any rig over 20 feet. Sites are cramped and backing a big rig is hard. Owner is not on site. Dogs ran free to use the bathroom. Any notable wind filled the air with dirt. We will not return here under the present conditions. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Our main concern when going to campgrounds is how clean the washrooms and showers are, since we only camp in a van and have no such facilities. This place did not disappoint. The sites were a little close, but we did not notice because of the shrubbery in between our site. The campground was a little more rustic than others we have stayed at, but being surrounded by mountains fit the mood. The site personnel were very friendly, and they have an ice cream social every night for $1.50. The hummingbirds put on a nice show also. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

We got there after dark and the young lady behind the counter to check us in offered us the use of her cool flashlight to help us park. Very helpful staff. There are lovely trees at the site. It is only 1.68 miles to a great trout fishing lake. You may store boat trailers for free on a special site they keep just for user storage. Our site was not very level, but we got the second-to-last one available because it was a very busy weekend in Leadville. Other sites looked better. Be sure you have something to lay outside your door or you will track a lot of dirt into your camper (like we did). We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are over 40' would not stay in this park, concrete runners are hard to stay on and you have to watch that jacks are straight. Poor electricity, not very well kept. Would not return, left before our time was up. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

An excellent park to soak up the beauty of Leadville, CO. Just three miles from downtown, this very charming and peaceful campground with friendly, knowledgeable staff has so much to offer. Every evening, there is a all-you-can-eat ice cream social for $1.50! The busy hummingbirds in the park are an added bonus for free entertainment. Yes, the sites are a little tight and not perfectly groomed, but this campground feels like home and it's well worth the location so close by to Turquoise Lake's myriad of outdoor activities. The tent camping sites are beautiful, perfectly level and well shaded. We found the bathrooms to be spotless and the campground store well stocked with helpful supplies. If you have dogs, this is the place to stay when in Leadville because the off leash area is vast and the campground is next door to a National Forest. We look forward to our next visit here.

After having stayed at the nice RV Park in Creede, we were really disappointed in this run-down park. We stayed here two years ago and it has gone down-hill since then. I think the owner doesn't know how to use a hose to water. All the grass is dead and the only thing surviving are the weeds. We were lucky, we got a spot with concrete pads for the wheels and jacks. All the big rigs and big fifth wheels across the way had just dirt, which was really dusty. The rather young staff tends to put big rigs and big fifth wheels down this last row where it is hard for them to maneuver. The spaces are narrow, but there was enough room for our slide on one side and the awning on the other, but not much left over after that. We paid $30 a night for a beautiful RV park in Creede and $39 a night for a run-down, over-crowded RV park in Leadville. If you have anything over 35' you'll have trouble in this park. But it is better than the other place in town. We decided this was our last trip to this park. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.
