2 Parks near Longmont, Colorado
Oct 2015 - $20.00
The sites in this park are pretty close together. We are able to get our slides out but you are very close to your neighbor. It can be very muddy when it rains. This campground is in town so your are close to groceries and several big box stores. Boulder is a short drive and Denver is about half an hour away. The location is the best feature. We found this park to be fairly quiet. We were one of the lucky sites that had a picnic table. Most don't. - barthur

We have used this campground many times in the past due to family in Longmont. Positives: Location is right behind the County Fairgrounds, so convenient for events (if you don't mind horses with occasional noise and odor) and the Sat. AM farmer's market. Short drive to shopping, including a Super Target. Nice walking trails around ponds with osprey nesting areas. Negatives: Sadly, our most recent visit was miserable. There are no sewer hookups (dump station) and the bathhouse, consisting of men's and women's bathrooms with toilets/sinks and a row of separate shower rooms, is heavily used and filthy. The bath house is cleaned by county jail inmates, and cleaned poorly. The lights kept going on and off for an inexplicable reason, making the bath house impossible to use at night. Apparently the county very honorably welcomed refugees from last year's horrible floods to camp there, but there still seems to be some people living there semi-permanently with rigs in disrepair. The grounds get muddy in rain since roads and sites are all gravel. The grounds are weed-infested. As a result, the whole campground now has a very seedy appearance despite a nice flower bed framing the front. There is a clerk manning an office, but if you arrive after hours you have to go over to the county maintenance yard nearby to get the bath house code. There is a cash machine to pay (need exact change or credit card) regardless if the clerk is there. $20 reflects electric only, $25 for electric & water. We will probably stay again, however, since St. Vrain State Park, the other option in town, is more expensive and further out of town. We'll just have to be self-contained and hope for no rain. - bigfootcamper

This is an older park with dirt roads and sites. Most of the campground is too tight for Big Rigs (tight turns and low hanging tree limbs) but there are 8 sites behind the office which can accommodate rigs over 40 feet. No WiFi, cable or sewer. There is a dump station which is easy to access. Since this is a county fairground there are lots of horse shows and events on weekends. Very dusty in the summer. The campground used to take reservations but it is now on a first-come, first-serve system. This will not be a problem if you arrive mid week but weekends seem pretty full. Good location for touring the Boulder area. We will stay here again. - lmg

This park is about 15 miles from our house. We used it for a 2 night "test run" with our new travel trailer before taking it over the mountain for 10 days in Moab. It is very basic but was exactly what we needed to test all the beeps and bops of our new rig.
It is VERY close to I-25 so you do have constant highway noise. That said, this is a great place to use a an overnight stop on long trips. Minimal shade. Level sites, easy to maneuver large rigs. This place has a lot of ponds that would be nice for fishing. - Team Lobster

We stayed at a full hook-up site. The site was a level concrete pad and all utilities were fine. The picnic table is under a shelter on a gravel pad. The highway noise is very noticeable but not a issue when inside. Walmart and King Soopers (supermarket) are about 5 miles away in opposite directions. Earlier in the season there are a lot of birds due to the numerous lakes. There are several trails around and between the lakes. - barthur
Oct 2015 - $29.00
Rate reflects $22 electric-only site plus $7 daily park fee (purchase the annual pass for $70 to save). We walked up without a reservation to stay 2 nights. The sites are very nicely spaced apart and they all come with a water view. The showers are coin-operated at .25 cents per minute. The stalls close with a locking door. It's situated pretty close to I-25 so you can hear the interstate traffic. Verizon LTE data signal was excellent here, full strength. - Sara C.
