This is a very pretty campground with ponds and wildlife. While our site did not have water at the site, we were easily able to top off our fresh water tanks by running two hoses to the water outlet; other sites had water and sewer. The sites are wonderful. It was also very convenient for visiting friends and family in the area. The biggest problem we experienced was the noise from I-25 (we were the 3rd closest site to the highway). Also, while the check campers, day visitors and guests closely at the entrance during the day, at night there is no security. Despite those drawbacks, we still loved this state park and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

This review is for the full hookup, 30/50 amp sites. The roads are all gravel. Sites, which are mostly parallel-to-the-road pull throughs, have a concrete slab for the RV and a gravel patio area with covered picnic table and fire pit. These sites are very spacious. If you make your reservations online, add $10 for the transaction fee. Add an additional $7 per day for the park entrance fee payable when you arrive. Highway noise may be an issue for some. Firewood was $5 bundle; about one night's fire. We would stay here again. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Review is for the electricity only sites; these sites have paved road access and large, level concrete pads for parking. Some are pull-through and some back-in. Picnic table and shelter are on a large, level gravel pad. Pick your site carefully. We were a group of 3 RVs with sites 38, 39, and 40. These were chosen because they were right on one of the ponds, with unobstructed views. As it turns out, there are a lot of fishermen and they have full access to the shore - even in your campsite. This includes use of your picnic table and shelter unless you happen to be occupying it. It may not bother some, but having someone smoking and carrying on a loud conversation in my reserved spot was annoying and detracted from our enjoyment of the park. Other than that, kudos to the park staff and hosts for keeping the park spotless! We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a week while visiting family in the Denver area. The park ended up being much more expensive because in additional to the nitely rate we had to pay either for a yearly state park pass or a daily rate of $7 for a vehicle pass. The campground provided a beautiful view of the mountains and foothills and despite the closeness to I-25 it was quiet. It was nice to stay in a state park with full hook-ups. It also had a covered picnic table. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Cost was $28.00 p/night plus a one time $10.00 registration fee which works out to 33 p/night for us for two nights. Math not my forte. At any rate we stopped for some voyage repairs to our Motorhome and this was a good spot to do it from. Site have concrete pads and ours was just long enough for a 45' MH. Great walking and we were far enough from the road it didn't bother us. We will go back when visiting that part of Colorado. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall, good location, facilities and spacing between camp spots. Some highway noise, but not overbearing or distracting. Down side was LOTS of long-term campers limited availability. And worse part was Park Ranger who overcharged us and when followed up and paid for an additional day with the on-duty attendant, she mentioned the overcharge to the Park Ranger who simply looked sheepish and did not correct his mistake. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is the absolute best place to stay between Colorado Springs and Fort Collins on the Front Range of the Rockies. Very spacious pull thru sights, great views of the mountains and many ponds and nature trails. The only two things keeping this from being a five star park are: the roads are only paved in the electric only section. full hookups are gravel roads and dusty. Also a laundry facility in the camper services building would be great to have like in most other Colorado State Parks. But aside from those minor inconveniences, it's a great base camp to go and hike in the mountains, visit Denver or Boulder and many many others. We will stay again We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the full hookup section right on one of the ponds, which gave us beautiful sunset views. There was a shelter over the picnic table which provided shade and wind protection, a very nice feature. The site was an easy level pull-thru. There are cleared trails around every pond, many of which interconnect, providing very convenient dog walking. Both Denver and Boulder are under an hour drives. There is an additional day use fee of $6/day plus a $10 reservation fee but it is still a very good value. We really enjoyed our stay here. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the newer, full hookup section, so this review is specific to that area. First the good. Very nice large sites with nice spacing between them. The way the campground is organized in large loops mean you aren't looking out toward close neighbors and have some really nice views from your patio area. Long, very wide, and flat concrete pads which also include concrete around the electric pedestal and water/sewer hookups (no mud!). Really decent price for full hookups. Any of the sites in the full hookup section are very big rig friendly. You can't go wrong with any, but when selecting your site online, try to find one further from the highway and off the main gravel campground road. Also, during warmer months, take into account orientation so you get afternoon shade from your rig. The bad...close to busy highway so you get consistent, pretty loud highway noise. The roads in the newer section are all very, very dusty gravel so there is a lot of dust kicked up any time anyone drives through. No shade other from your rig or site shelter. A few more dings...the dumpster and recycling can were always full. No dog waste stations anywhere in park. Nice short walking paths around the ponds. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

This may not be the most attractive state park around, but it does have a lot going for it. Full hookups for $30, very large, spacious sites, plenty of places to walk with trails around most of the many small lakes, excellent Verizon and AT&T coverage, and a reasonable drive to Longmont and Boulder. Sites are completely level concrete, with a covered gravel picnic area. When outside we can hear the interstate but it's far enough to not be loud or bothersome. The full-hookup section is mostly wide open with few, if any, trees, and is all dirt roads so our car was a mess, and when walking our dog outside we had to deal with lots of dust when other cars drove by. The electric-only section of the campground has paved roads, many mature trees, and is much prettier. We had to deal with some mosquitoes but it wasn't bad compared to some other spots we've camped recently. We'll return in the future to spend more time exploring the Boulder area. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

When making an online reservation for St. Vrain SP, we noticed that you could only enter an RV length as 40' or less. When we received the reservation confirmation, it stated RV maximum length of 45'. The reason I state this is, we have a 45' motorhome and was concerned that we would be turned away having completed a reservation for a 40' motorhome. Every full-hookup site at St. Vrain SP can easily accommodate a 45' RV. All of the FHU sites are pull-thru with a concrete pad. The WSE hookups were placed correctly and our 50-amp pedestal provided ample strong voltage on a 100 degree day. The campground is well laid-out but watch for the big boulders that cordoned off the perimeter of your RV site. Water pressure was very high. Beautiful views of the ponds that surround the State Park. And the snow-capped mountain views are fantastic. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Longmont was a delight. We dined at Georgia Boys BBQ in downtown Longmont. Go visit Cheese Importers corner of 1st & Main St. at the railroad tracks in downtown Longmont. 2 story building filled with cheeses from all across the USA and imported from abroad. Check out the olive bar & restaurant. Fantastic find! A Super Walmart is very close to the State Park.

Stayed for a few nights before we go on a lengthy trip just to make sure all systems in the rv work. We were in Coot Pond loop, site 66 next to the pond and it is a beautiful spot. Nice view of the mountains. The site was clean and gravel around fire pit and picnic table freshly raked. Parking for the rv is a large, level concrete pad. There is a metal sun shade above the picnic tables and outdoor meals can be enjoyed in the shade. Lots of space between sites and plenty of green spaces for kids to play. There is some road noise from I-25, but not bad even when sitting outside. The park is about a 5 minute drive from the highway and would be convenient for an overnight stay. Our rate of $37 per day includes $7 daily vehicle fee. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at St Vrain while visiting family in the area. It is a very nice park, but I would not make this a destination park unless you need to be in the area. We stayed in site 33 in the Mallard Loop. This area (North side of the entrance road) of the park has electric only sites and paved pads that are very level. For the electric only sites, the fee was $26/night, plus $7/day entrance fee, plus a $10 reservation fee. Total cost for a 3 night stay was $36/night. Water comes from shared water spigots. There are 3 in this loop and only 1 worked while we were there. The dump station has additional water spigots that worked. The spots south of the main entrance road have water and electric and this area appears to be newer, but the roads and spots are gravel only. The bath house was clean, but the showers will also cost you. $1.25 for the first 4 minutes, (but you get a free minute for the water to warm up) and $0.25 for each additional minute. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

St. Vrain is a very nice, clean park with great fishing and bird watching (bald eagles, blue heron, pelicans.) The park is kept spotlessly clean and the rangers and camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. The negatives are the showers which are in need of maintenance, no on-site laundry, and it is expensive at $43 per night for an electric-only site. This includes the outrageous $10 reservation fee and a $7 park entrance fee (a Colorado State Parks oddity). We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

It was an ok park. Not particularly pretty and very close to the highway. For a short stay or an overnight it would be great. Keep in mind that at all Colorado state parks if you don't buy a yearly pass you will be charged additional fees. If you are going to spend 14 days or more a year at a SP in CO it is worth buying one. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.
