This is a nice state park that is convenient to I-25. Yes you do hear the noise from the interstate, but it didn't bother me. At night we had our A/C on so that drowns out any noise anyway. We stayed in the Coot Pond loop and our site was right by the pond. We had a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance and the sunsets in the evening were beautiful. It was very hot when we were there (upper 90s most days), so we didn't get to enjoy the outside as much but the mornings were lovely and evenings were nice as soon as the sun went down. They don't have any laundry facilities here which was inconvenient. Verizon 4G worked well here. The only reason I knock off any stars for this and every other CO state park is because of the ridiculous $10 reservation fee and the fact that you have to pay the $7/day park entrance fee on top of the campground fee. We travel full-time and this is the only state so far that we have been to that makes you pay an entrance fee in addition to the campground fee. Since we are traveling around Colorado for a couple of months it made sense for us to buy the CO state parks annual pass for $70, but it makes staying at CO state parks a lot more expensive than other states. We are from Florida, and FL state parks do NOT make you pay the entrance fee on top of the campground fee to camp there. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two nights. We were only able to get electric at the last moment. The site spaces are spacious, fire ring and table right by the pond. There is noise from I25, but since it was so hot we kept our AC on. The mosquitos are horrible at night. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an outstanding Colorado State Park with a beautiful unobstructed view of the Rocky Mountains, if you are in the Coot Pond Loop. We love it and will make this an annual visit for the maximum 2 weeks allowed. The only disadvantages are lack of laundry facilities at the Camper Services building, and the lack of a "clean" restroom in the full hookup area. Only the "electric only" section has paved roads, but one of the hosts indicated that they plan to pave the full hook up area roads next year, which would eliminate dust in the area. The bicycle/walking trails throughout the park are wonderful. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Sorry, can't remember what we paid. Stayed one night in the full-hookups section. Would rate this part a 7 because, although spacious and clean, there were no trees. We had never stayed in a state park with so few trees. The second night we didn't have sewer but the site was much nicer (trees, shrubs). We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Surprised that the roads are dirt. It was windy and dusty. Sites are nice with concrete pads and full hookups. Price reflects daily rate plus $10 reservation fee. Close to the interstate so as expected there's traffic noise 7/24. Not bad inside with A/C going. Would stay again because it's still better than most private CG's. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A lovely, spacious state park about 25 miles north of I-70, just west of I-25 and a few miles east of Longmont. No trees to speak of, but very spacious sites, covered picnic tables, excellent hookups, attractive ponds, level concrete pads, and grass. Gravel walking trails, fishing is allowed (with license). Could stay there quite a while. Each site is cleaned by friendly workampers immediately upon being vacated. $7.00 per day car fee. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here 7 nights, love this park. spaces have cement pads, sun shelter and a fire pit! Unhooked and was level! Staff was great! Only have 2 complaints. The grass has way over grown around the ponds and around the site, and you also have to pay $7 per day to use the park on top of your space rent. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Actually, the CG itself is very nice. Concrete, pull-thru, FHU site with a gravel patio, table, & covered wind guard. The sites are very spacious, both on the site and between sites. It's close to I-25, so easy access. Road noise outside the RV, but not inside. There's a walking path around the pond. No shade trees to speak of. Rate includes a $7.00 per day entrance fee PER VEHICLE, so we paid $14.00 per day for MH & toad.

My beef is with the reservation system and the employee at the entrance gate.. We stopped 2 nights before we were to leave to see if we could extend our stay 2 nights as we needed to have an RV tech fix our a/c. We were told she couldn't do it that day, but to come back the next evening, and she'd book it for us. The site was available for those 2 nights, and we had first rights. I questioned that what if someone booked it online. Was told that the booking window for online was 72 hrs. out, so no worries, we'd be fine. We came back the next evening as instructed, and the site had been booked online. She talked in huge circles when we tried to hold her to the fire. Typical government establishment. We won't be back. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

In a semi-urban area without a lot of choices, St. Vrain SP is an excellent place to stay. I wouldn't call it a destination campground due to its location, but if fishing and boating is your thing, this might be a little bit of heaven. All the sites have electric hook ups and two of the loops have full hook ups. The FHU area is a newer area and doesn't have mature trees like some of the other loops, so less shade. The park has a large number of long pull-throughs and back-ins and the park roads are easy to navigate. I thought the rates were reasonable, the reservation system worked well (ReserveAmerica for all CO state parks)and we were able to extend our stay with no problems. The view of the nearby Rocky Mountains reflected on the many lakes was a nice extra. The only downside was the freeway noise, which was probably the worst we have ever experienced in two years of full-timing. I think it is because I-25 is raised up above ground level and there is nothing to muffle the sound. But if you need to visit family or do other business in the Boulder/Longmont area, this is the place to stay. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Site #56 had a fantastic view of the mountains looking over the lake only a few feet away, the sunsets were beautiful. Over all the park was well maintained and easy to get around in with our 40 foot motor home. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Roads are paves. There are loops in this park. We where in FHU site. All sites pull through on gravel with concrete pads, table under structure and fire ring. Near the reservoirs. 4G. There's a playground on the other side and you can walk dogs anywhere. Note: there is a $7 daily fee. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

St Vrain State park is just north of Denver, CO. While located alongside I-25 there isn't much road noise.

There are 3 camping areas. The one on the south side where I stayed (#45) is the newer section. Here the sites are E/W/S. 20/30/50A. Concrete pad next to a curved picnic shelter. The pad is wide enough that I was able to put out the awning on my Airstream without hitting the picnic shelter. Not much shade in this section.

The north side has two sections. Both have mature trees. Pelican Loop has the best tree/shade coverage while Mallard Campground has a mix of open and shaded spots. These are electric only sites (20/30/50A)

There is a nice dump site available on site.

Verizon was 5 bars inside the Airstream with 15/8mbs down/up on Speedtest.

Park is convenient to lots of activities in the Denver area. Ft Collins is about 20 minutes north, Longmont 10 minutes west and Boulder about 20 minutes away.

E only $22, EWS $26 and a $7 per vehicle fee. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.
