The only thing this park has going for it is location. For larger rigs, they are the only choice in this area. The park is the dirtiest, most crowded park we have ever visited. There were campers and tents and vehicles crammed into everywhere. The roads are dirt and there is no attempt to control speed so dust billows. The staff consists of a couple of young adults who do not assign the sites by size and need. The dumpsters overflowed and campers placed bags of trash on the ground for several nights, a bear hazard. The staff did not address the situation. People parked regular construction trucks on the grass, sleeping in the cabs with no camping equipment. Some owner involvement and presence, along with some clean-up and care, could make this a nice park. We will not return to this park. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Busy time of year for this park as it was full of cyclists for the Leadville 100. First impression when entering the park is that of a barely maintained Forest Service Campground. Dusty pot holed interior roads. Check in was fast (confusing the way they break down the charges, they say it saves the guest $$), we were led to a "drive through" site that was impossible to negotiate with our rig due to the layout of the road and the very close sites. I was told to back in, I am pretty good at backing the trailer but this site was to tight. I chose a back in site and it worked out fine. The site had two cement strips for the RV's wheels, however the our two vehicle was in dirt and several inches lower then the concrete strips. The trailer was level, all good. The sites are very close together, the tent sites had more room. The weeds and grass were ankle deep and higher. The bathroom/showers were very clean. WiFi is available in the rec room, very strong and fast. We would stay here again. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

We were assigned a site that was very difficult to access. They sent a young man to help guide us in. God bless him- he was nice - but not experienced with how to maneuver a large fifth wheel. It's a good thing a couple of spots were open on the other side of the road - otherwise we would not have been able to get in the site. And, I had made a reservation about a month earlier. The site was mostly dirt - it could be much improved with gravel or something other than dirt. They have a weird pricing system here. They charge by the site and by the number of people in the party. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff. Restrooms and showers were very clean. The campsites were a little confusing and the roads could use some gravel. But it was close to the most beautiful golf course I have ever played. I would camp here again. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
