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! - ME for Maine

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. - mountainfan

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. - SHIPM8

So sorry about this place. We stayed here many years ago and it was nice. Now mostly long term people with permanent things added to their sites. No one seems to pick up after their dogs. Parking was very crowded...had to unhook to even go to site. Office staff was very friendly. - travel2011

The park has power issues (very low voltage on one leg) which prevented the use of standard RV Surge protectors and low water pressure making showers a bit of a challenge.
RV Spaces are *very* tight. I had a family of HEAVY smokers next door that churned out more smoke than a Semi-Truck. With the trailers packed so close you get all the odors from your neighbor. Naturally they felt no reason to accomodate any nonsmoker requests. Had to resort to a filter mask. Due to tempuratures I was not able to use fans to clear out the RV air.
I was planning to stay through March, but ended up leaving after the first month. - WillD

We stayed in space where we had more room between our units as ours was older unit. Newer units with slides and awnings will find it more challenging. Laundry facilities are taxing the drain system and overflow the drains, yet no warning signs are placed out. When office closes, not always as hours posted, no one will answer telephone until voicemail is listened to the following day, unless Sunday. Read all park posted signs pertaining to video taping and supposed rules, it may make your stay "easier?".
Sites are "graveled" still have drainage issues. - Traveler25

This is sort of an emergency campground to stay in when there is no other place available. There is a newer section suitable for long RV and an older section, in which we stayed, as the newer section was full. The RV sites in the older section are short and narrow. When our 4 slide outs were extended,. there was not room to walk around the RV. There was not room to park the car in our site. The bathrooms were marginally clean, with two of the four sinks stopped up an unable to drain in a normal way. As stated in other reviews, there is no sewer hook-up. The park really is not managed. One can not make reservations, so it is first-come to get a site.There is no one in charge on the premises, much of the time. We would stay in this park again, if there was no recourse except for Walmart and even then Walmart may be preferable.. - hoppytoad

We stayed here because we were visiting our children in Boulder and rv parks in this area are few and far between. This park is certainly not well kept. There is no resident manager. The grounds are full of " goat heads" (weeds with very sharp stickers), in fact they carpet many of the rv sites. Some of the weeds in the flower beds are shoulder high. The driveways and roads are dirt and full of potholes. The restrooms are cleaned daily by inmates from the local jail and most of the hooks to hang your clothing and towels have fallen off the walls and were not replaced. Walking your pet can be a challenge with all the stickers but you also have to watch out for the "leavings" from irresponsible pet owners who do not clean up after their pets. The most grounds maintenance we saw was when they were watering some of the trees and bushes from a tank on the back of a pickup. Although there have been very nice flower beds at one time the weeds have been allowed to crowd them out. As others have noted the spaces are very crowded. We had to dodge low hanging branches and there were pull through sites we couldn't pull into because the trees are not trimmed. There are plenty of activities at the fairgrounds, especially on weekends and shopping is good and convenient. For being is such a populated area it was fairly quiet. The sheriff and park rangers were regular visitors while we were here but there is no other park oversight. One day a homeless person asked a neighbor of ours for the bathroom code. She did not give it out. I would not stay here again if I could avoid it. The utilities did work well but there is no sewer hookups. The dump site is only open from 8 to 4 so if you want to leave early in the morning and dump on your way out you can't. The most positive thing I can say is that the price is cheap. - suzwoodard

We were able to be here for the big eclipse. The spaces are both short and very close together. It is very difficult to park your tow vehicle. In our space the water was on one side and the electrical pedestal was on the other. The utilities were adequate. The parking surface is just plain dirt. The manager here was very helpful. The big advantage of parking here is cost and often availability. Most of the commercial parks in the area could cost twice as much. Since this is the county fairgrounds, there are often things happening in the fair facilities. Sometimes, rodeo, barrel racing, Saturday farmers market, bicycle trail, ponds with ospreys etc and etc. Great shopping and restaurants are nearby. We would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

Cons-In need of a facelift Old & unmaintained. No place for dogs, defunct mini golf course (if you want to call it that) no wifi, no cable or internet hook ups, no place for parking, majority permanent residents Pros- Great cell reception, cheap, shopping nearby, friendly residents. - Lostnsummr
Jun 2012 - $19.00
Friendly owners which are very laid back. This is not your normal run RV Park. But I will stay here when ever we are in the area. Park could be greatly improved by making the permanent residents clean up around their sites. The Park has great access to the surrounding area. - From the Kites

This is more like a trailer park the a campground. This place is more then half full of permanent trailers.It is looking run down and old. The whole place needs a face lift. There are nice people living there but a lot of junk laying around. - dozerdog

Nicely kept park but the spaces are very close together. Bathrooms were very nice but a code was needed to use them and wasn't given at check-in, you had to ask. Wifi was horrible and we had no tv reception. The most disappointing thing for us was that there were no campfires allowed and no space to have them if they were allowed. Very convenient to area shops and restaurants and easy route to the mountains. - pkdrummer

We noted some of the negative comments of others, but found them tolerable. This is obviously an older park built before the days of big rigs. Although a bit congested, we had enough room in an end row site. The staff was super in getting us into our site safely and easily and we decided to stay over an extra day. The park is conveniently located off Interstate 25 and State Highway 34 with shopping close by and lots of things to do and places to go in the area. All in all, the park was nearly full the two times we stayed there -- which says a lot about the facility. - Gene Hain

This campground is conveniently located off of Rt 25 in Loveland. All the sites are shaded by tall mature trees. There is a playground, pool, mini golf and dog run. Restrooms are clean. Showers are nice. The back grassy areas of the park are occupied by seasonal campers. The front gravel areas (with no grass) are used for nightly campers. These sites are slightly small and arranged in a staggered parking pattern where the passenger (door) sides of RVs are facing each other. The only way to arrange your picnic tables is to position them side-by-side with your neighbor, which doesn't allow much privacy. Unfortunately that means that the 2nd RV to each pair of sites usually ends up with no private eating area because the 1st RV gets the optimum table between the 2 rigs. We didn't like this too much. There is also a lot of road noise from Rt 25 and Rt 34. We probably would pick another campground next time even though the facility is clean, convenient and the staff is friendly. - EVO_Bob

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

The park has both good and bad qualities. The proximity to the lake is fantastic, and there is a lot to do. Sites are big and you are relatively far from other campers. You can have a motor home and two vehicles, or a motor home, tent, and one vehicle. The bad qualities are largely what you get for the price. They only offer electric hookups, with plumbed toilets (bring your own soap for hand washing) and showers nearby (showers will cost you some quarters as they are not included in the price). You also have to pay to get into the state park ($8 or so per day). There is no store and they do not sell firewood. With that said, I would stay here again because of the views and access to the path that goes along the lake. Just get ready to spend some money. - OffroadGirl

We spent 2 nights here as we were traveling through. The location worked well for us to visit friends and relatives. Fortunately they have 50 amp here as we had to run AC because of heat and campfires nearby. It worked out that we took a day to visit Rocky Mt. Nat'l Pk. Sites are asphalt and curved and not long enough for MH and toad to stay attached. Electric was fine; no sewer or water, restrooms and dump station nearby, many channels on broadcast tv, no wifi. Price high for limited utilities/ camping & daily fee, but typical of Co.state parks. - JAWS

We have been to Boyd Lake several times. The last time we were here was 2016 and not much has changed. Still a good campground for the money and the proximity to the lake for boating is great! Not much to add as previously stated. Out site was level, good power and clean. We do use our patio mat to keep the gravel out as the sites are asphalt with gravel. - colochoclab

This is our second stay here at Carter Lake. This reservoir is a great place to bring your boat! Big and quiet even on a weekend! We camped in Eagle Campground across the street from the marina. Super close to the boat ramps and ample parking next to the campground for your boat and tow vehicle. A new shower house is close by all within walking distance from your campsite. Electric only, a dump station is a few miles away at the ranger station, water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Beautiful scenery! Fairly heavily wooded area. Beware, the roads in the campground are tight and fairly steep at places, but manageable. Our site E-16 had a great view of the lake! Drawback of this particular site was it is crazy un level. 2 packs of leveling blocks plus some spare wood needed to level our 30 ft trailer. Most sites are fairly level, but be prepared. Quiet campground, moderate ranger presence so no issues! Spotty cell service with T-mobile. We will definitely be back! - colochoclab

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

This RV Park has been completely rejuvenated after a terrible flood. New sites have been made. Unfortunately the price to stay here has escalated so that the park is no longer good value. All the sites are back-in. In half the sites, trees prevent getting satellite reception. Management seems unaware of the desire of many to get satellite TV reception, so all the sites backing up to the trees are filled while the more open spots are empty. There are rules against using charcoal barbecue except in the awkward pits provided by the park (Only one nearby for the motor home people.) We used to like this park, but because of the price and the problems with TV reception, we are unsure if we will stay there again. - hoppytoad

This city park is right in downtown Lyons and was wiped out by a flood in 2013. Most of the town was damaged also. So the city rebuilt the entire park. Group shelters, picnic, tent site, restrooms, showers are all new. There are only 17 RV sites with full hook ups, more tent sites. This park stays full. Locals flood the park on weekends with soccer games and other activities. All roads in the park are dirt so with a lot of activity the dust flies so you have to keep doors and windows closed. No WiFi or cable. The rates are up there with nicer RV parks where these services are provided. But the city can charge these rates because there is no competition in the area. On top of that they only take cash or check as payment. That's just weird in this day and time. The camp hosts were super nice and helpful. We were next to them for three weeks and saw how hard they worked. The city feels they need to charge for a lot of things; the park parking lots have a electronic parking machine where visitors pay like $5 for four hours, showers are coin op. Most disturbing, the city will totally rent out the entire park to groups that allows this group to totally run the park for their group for a period of time. The park hosts have to move out during this time. Locals are banned from this city park during this time. Makes you wonder what's going on during this time. Weekends and summer traffic in Lyons is heavy with people headed and returning from Estes Park. All in all, this was the most unusual park we have stayed at, but we made the best of it. The City of Lyons is in the tourism business big time so they need to step up and up grade their services. - Milton1 -_

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

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
