This is a very nice state park located conveniently to I-25 so there is some road noise. We were in the FHU section, sites 42-87. These sites are spacious, long, level, concrete pull-through, with a concrete patio, a covered table, and a fire ring. There is no shade. There is also a flush toilet building in this section. There are several ponds with trails around them so there is plenty of area to walk and exercise a dog. Fishing is available at some of the ponds. Be aware of the $10 reservation fee and an additional $7 daily pass fee. We used this location to explore Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. - JoyceM

It is a really nice State Park. Good fishing and plenty of walking trails. It is near I-25 and you can hear the road traffic. You have plenty of room at your site. - Renegade Traveler

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. - dandd

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

We were lucky to get the very last site that our rig could fit in - 30 amp electric only. The next day we were able to pull into a newer site with 50 amp and water. Sites are dirt but fairly level. We could not get satellite reception in the first site but were able to get it in the 2nd site. This is a very bare bones park with an automated system for paying. It's not possible to find an available site without using the machine which makes finding a site very difficult. You need to walk through and find sites without RVs and then go to the machine and plug in the site number to see if it's available. I will say the 2 park "rangers" were very helpful. We were here for a family reunion and all parks in the area from Denver north were full. Our reservation at a real park was mixed up so we had no choice but to stay here. It isn't bad for overnight if you can get in. Arrive early and hope! - dickens

As others have said, this is not a destination resort but a convenient overnight campground with either electric or water hookup for $20. Check in is fully automated and takes cash or credit. There is also a sewer dump which is free for campers. I found a shady pull-thru site which was reasonably level. Aside from some geese that honk their way through the park, this is a quiet campground. Some workers [convicts?] were planting flowers while I was there but some of the back-in sites were overgrown with weeds. The only problem is that the interior roads and sites are dirt and after thunderstorms the previous night there were a few muddy areas. I would stay here again. - mockturtle

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

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
Sep 2017 - $50.00
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

Directions to campground were poor. We had no Internet or telephone service but 44 channels over the air tv. We were in the new section of the south campground up on a hill overlooking the lake. Site was somewhat level. Very breezy in late afternoon. 20 miles to Loveland. - daviputnam

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

Stayed hear while visiting relatives nearby. Things to remember is the price of camping does not cover the cost of the $8 daily entry rate. Also, the check in was extremely slow as the office at the park also registers boats- an extremely slow process. Although there is no sewer hook up, there are bathrooms and showers. The showers require quarters and I think it was $1 to get the shower started. All of the sites are pull through but area not big enough to leave the tow vehicle attached. - Cavtrooper

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

Carter Lake is a wonderful place to bring your boat! The Eagle campground is well kept and clean. It is an older campground and could use some improvements to interior roads and sites. Roads are gravel and dirt and some places can get a little steep when moving your rig around. Electrical hookups only and water spigots are situated here and there. Closest dump station is at the Ranger station about 15 minutes away. Our site, E-05, was a bit unlevel, it has the best view of the reservoir in the entire campground. Quite spectacular! Cell service was awful with T-Mobile. No wifi available. Shower house is fairly new and clean, but a bit pricey. You must purchase tokens for $1 each. 2 token minimum to start for 6 minutes. Eagle Campground is just across the street from the main marina and marina store, very convenient! There is ample parking for boats and extra vehicles next to the campground neat the shower house. Only really crappy thing that happened (Not the CG's fault) was some idiot stole my boat cover off my boat one night! Rangers were quick to respond, but a dead case. - 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

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 stayed at this park as the RV campgrounds in Estes Park were not open at this time of year. This is a very small reservoir with a nice camping area surrounding the water. At our pull through site the electric tower was on the wrong side of our coach necessitating running the hook up under the trailer. While this was inconvenient it did allow us to have a view through our larger side windows to the lake. We had a covered picnic table and a fire pit in a large area. It appears that the one way road entrance was changed without regard to electric hookups. There is no sewer dump at the park and the closest is at the South entrance which was about 20 minutes from the park past Carter Lake. There is one potable water faucet which did have threaded if needed to fill up, however it was very close to a site and would necessitate parking in the road to use. The park was completely full on the week-end and the spaces were all reserved. There are pit toilets available which were clean at this time of the year, however we did not see anyone stocking or cleaning the bathrooms and there appears to be no Park host. During our stay we had considerable rain and the roads and site were fairly muddy. The lake is too small for motorized boats but we did see people using kayaks and fishing. We had OTA television stations, but Verizon service was spotty and limited. There was no AT&T service. There is no designated dog area so walking was limited to the park road area and down near the shore of the lake. We would stay in this park again if we were in the area. - bbmidwife

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
