32 RV Parks near Lyons, Colorado
Oct 2016 - $33.00
A small park owned by the Town of Lyons. This RV park and adjacent city park was completely rebuilt after devastating floods three years ago. The town has spent over $8 million on the rebuild. Very clean bathrooms.
A limited number of sites with full hook-ups are available. They are all level and no pull throughs.
This park is now open all year. A creek runs around 3 sides of the city park and looks good for fishing but we didn't try. 20 miles to Estes Park via Hwy 36.
Management is friendly and conscientious. - Eric 921

This is a FHU city park. The sites are very, very close, I was between to class a's and my 5th wheel slide out almost touched theirs. No room for awning or anything else. There was no picnic table of course no room for one. The sites were level, but short. At this time its a cash or check operation no credit cards. The host did take me to the site and directed my backing. As for tv do not plan on watching much you do get a few. - rving4fun

This is a beautiful park, only partially recovered from a devastating flood in 2013. It has water, sewer, electric on very tight sites. Our shady area is adjacent to our neighbor's sewer hookup. The upside is that is the only RV park near Boulder with utilities and is in the center of a charming old town. Interesting restaurants with organic food and craft beers are within walking distance. Utilities are new and adequate. Over-the-air TV is adequate. We thought we had a reservation, but the host seemed surprised. There was room and he allowed us to choose. There are no site numbers, and access to St.Vrains river is fenced off with Do Not Enter. But grassy park areas, and beautiful cliffs make this a hidden gem. In addition to the site fee, the city asks for donations to help rebuild. I hope the city can get the funds to finish the job. - Yeager

Dogs are welcome but most people do not pick up after their animal. Many/Most of the sites are almost not navigable, very rough and impossible or difficult to get your RV level enough to use your refrigerator.
This is a County park and although a beautiful place the sites are small and not level. We have stayed at this camp ground 2 times and both time our awning was damaged but very harsh and sudden winds (gusty unexpected). Fishing is great but do not put out your awning. - Rex & Carol

We stayed in E38 and it was a great site for our fifth wheel plus a tent pad. My daughter had her 17th B-day Camping party. The restrooms were close by and the showers too for her guests. I loved that it was within walking distance of the marina. We rented a boat and brought it there. We rented a slip for 2 nights so we could come and go on the lake. It was a fun trip. The park rangers were very present there so if you want to come and be rowdy this place isn't the place to do it. They stopped a few times for our neighbors and once to our site because the kids had their iPods playing music after 10 PM. I really enjoyed this trip. Last year we got a horrible site, E11. It didn't house our 5th wheel well at all. There was a tree that got in the way of our slideout so we had to face it in a different way than probably intended. It put us in downward facing when we stepped out the front : / This trip was very fun and we loved the site and it was within an hour of our home. - themayerfam

This is our second stay. See our first DSVT review. We were looking for a convenient place to stay in the general area while visiting friends in April. There were only a few other RVs. Our stay was quiet. Although this park is more functional than aesthetic, we came back for the convenient location, easy access and friendly staff. - dsvt

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient for visiting friends in the Longmont/Boulder area. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weekend in September.
All sites have electric, some have water. There's a dump station near the entrance. There's no wifi. ATT and Verizon coverage were ok. The sites are all arrayed in a flat gravel parking lot and are quite narrow. Sites on the ends of the rows feel larger as they abut small islands to direct traffic which also hold a picnic table. There are few trees, mostly around the perimeter. Despite the small sites and nearly full campground, we enjoyed several quiet nights. All sites are first come first serve, there are no reservations. - dsvt

Simple park in nice area, convenient to shopping, movies, and Saturday farmers market in season. Easy spots on a first come first serve basis with 14 day stay limit. Easy into Boulder, Lafayette, etc. W&E worked great. Dump station pretty easy to get into. No sewer sites but nicely kept bathhouse with individually lock shower stalls and clean sink/toilet ares. Very quiet after dark. Humane shelter close by but no noise noted. Park needs some spiffing up so you don't feel like you are camping in an empty lot. Overall, a good place to stay.
We will stay here again. - FulltimerFun

I am giving this park a negative review based on the first campground loop; we did not try the other loops. The positives - the hosts were friendly, the lake was beautiful and the marina store was great. They cleaned out your fire pit every morning, which was a nice touch. The negatives, and why we won't stay here again: the roads were in horrible condition, all dirt, just one giant pothole. That was the easy part of getting in! The entrance to the first campsite loop is up a hill, on a tight turn, flanked by trees and a side slope - all on loose gravel. We made it intact - barely, thanks to 4WD on our tow vehicle. Others weren't as lucky, as both trees on each side of the slope were completely gouged out by vehicles. Then we made it to our campsite. Not only was it incredibly unlevel, it was on a dirt/gravel mix that made it impossible to get traction. Even with 4WD enabled, we were still spinning our tires. We couldn't get the trailer on leveling blocks because the gravel would shoot them out. And we weren't the only ones, all through the park you could hear tires spinning on gravel as people returned to their campsites. In addition, the grass was not mowed and we saw numerous snakes at our camper, along with dead ones on the road. I would only camp here if you choose your site in person ahead of time and verify that you can enter and exit safely and that the site is indeed level. We did see some sites better than ours that were occupied. - wookiemouse

There are multiple campgrounds around Carter Lake. I stayed 1 night at the Eagle CG at the north end but had zero Verizon service even with a booster. Sites in Eagle can be challenging to get your rig level. I need 3 levels of leveling blocks and still wasn't quite level. Moved to the South Shore CG. I found a few sites where I could get a couple of bars of LTE on Verizon but only with a Wilson 4G booster. S27 and the adjacent sites had a signal. Park was busy on Sunday but pretty quite for the next 3 days. - Gary Camp-Inn

We've camped at this campground a couple of times and it is one of our favorites. Great lake views and plenty of pine trees. Spot was fairly level and there's good separation between spots. There is a new bathroom with flush toilets and pay showers within this campground. Marina and store are right across the highway, unfortunately the highway can get loud at times, but not unbearable. Dump station is quite a drive down the hill. If you're considering this campground, or Flatiron or Horsetooth, the yearly county pass might be worth the money instead of the $7/day fee that is extra above the camping nightly fee. - FlightCrew

Friendly staff. Site was spacious but a challenge to get into. Steep grade and tight turns. Staff really helped in getting us into the site. Clean restrooms but no TV or wifi. Would come back again. - Luthersr

First the good: The WiFi was excellent, reliable and fast. The escorts really do a good job in assisting RVers to backing into the sites.
Now the bad: The escorts have to be good as the sites are all back-ins and tend to be hilly, sometimes with odd angles to the interior roads. The interior roads are narrow and tend to have obstacles that impede the backing in process. Our road didn't have an alternate exit and traffic had to wait while we were backing in and unhitching, as the our site wasn't long enough to accommodate our 34' trailer and tow vehicle. We were blocking half the road. The site was level from side to side but ran uphill toward the back. The location of the fixed fire ring made it difficult to park my tow vehicle since it was close to the trailer and right where I wanted to park it. Care must be taken when driving on the roads since there are many children playing at this park. There was no cable or OTA TV available. The one laundry room did not have enough washers and dryers for a park this size. In my opinion this park is not worth the cost. - RVRenter

Great location for the Estes Park region. One thing I noticed that no one mentions in their reviews that there is no over the air TV or cable. So NO TV unless you have satellite. I guess this is normal while in the mountains but a surprise to our group that never encountered this before in our travels. We had a stream behind us near our fire ring/grill which was nice. We stayed 4 nights/ - rdb1

We were impressed with the staff when we checked in and even tho we didn't have a reservation, we were able to get a space. The area was clean and beautiful. We did notice that people didn't clean up after their dogs and that might be something to add to the regulations booklet. When we decided to stay an extra day, the person on duty that Sunday morning (March 19th) was "extra" pleasant and helpful to us and to the other campers that were checking in. - Arlene Harmon

Dog feces is a problem since no one seems to pick up. Sites are very unlevel and rutted.
My site was facing the wrong way and I had to disconnect everything and turn around to leave because sometime since it was built the roadway has become one way. Extremely bad sites. - Rex & Carol

We paid $26.50 per night when reserved. When we arrived we learned that we needed a Larimer County Access pass to camp. Rates are $6 per night, $80 yearly, or as we did, bought a senior rate yearly pass for $35. So our 6 day stay cost was $32 per night. Site # F18 was right on the water and is large and scenic. Electric only. There is no water, sewer, and no dump. Showers are available at Carter Lake CG 5 miles away for $2.00 for 6 minutes. They have a token machine that is cash only. No Verizon service available for our phone or data. The site and view were nice, but the lack of amenities lowered our rating. - DEBandVINCE

Very nice National Park close to Estes Park, in fact this is where we had to stay to visit Estes Park. The campground sites are very spread out and water faucets are available through out the camp but you need a water cheater to hook up. No dump so come empty. We would never had found this park had Estes Park not been full, so sometimes things do work out. - monaco cruiser

Although this RV park did not have amenities and was very basic, we were happy to have it available. There is no other RV parking in the vicinity of Boulder. Since we wanted to visit our daughter there, we needed this play to stay. The management was friendly, but Wi-Fi only worked inside the building. - Ricky724

Can't believe this campground hasn't been reviewed more frequently. It's an excellent campground, located between Ward (8 miles away) and Allenspark (8 miles away) at Peaceful Valley. There's actually 2 campgrounds here, Camp Dick (with 40 sites) and Peaceful Valley (with 17 sites). Stayed at Camp Dick over the Memorial Day weekend 2016; rate is without senior pass discount (half price), and did require a 3 night minimum since it was a holiday.
Sites are well spaced, some in the open, some in the trees. CG is in a valley with a stream running through it, quite a few sites are streamside; there's also a cul-de-sac with some sites, in the trees and a bit more private. Each site has a fire ring, table, separate grill and tent pad. All are well maintained and cleaned regularly. CG road is paved; sites are gravel and level.
Family friendly CG, can accommodate a variety of campers/RVs. No hookups at all, and common water available, but faucets are not threaded. Firewood available on site from host. Host very friendly and efficient. - ThomInColorado

Great campground. Within 1-2 hours of Boulder/ North metro Denver. Dry camping, but we had a generator so no problem for us. No amenities, just a great get-away location. Kids had fun exploring the stream, riding bikes, etc. Will definitely return! - co_campers
