Pretty good forest service cg, close to Nederland. But could not find a single level site, and as previously said, this place is best for tents and vans. No cell reception. Hosts never made contact with anyone and raced around in a truck. - Annie's Song

This is a gorgeous setting (right in the middle of National Forest at 8,600 feet). Sites are dirt and vary a bit in size and levelness. There's a handfull of spaces for big-rigs (we have a 40' Class A), but I'd say the majority of the sites are better suited to tenters and smaller rigs. Fire-pit, grill and bench at each site. Pretty forest views and good space between campers. Half the sites are reservable, the others are first-come-first-serve. Potable water, but NO dumpstation here. No hookups. Pit toilets only. Overall a a primitive campground in a lovely and very relaxing forest setting. We'd definitely go back. - nina_70

A typical National Forest campground. Has no hookups and limited sites for big rigs. There are 18 walk-up sites and the rest are reservation at Recreation.gov. Has nice camp hosts and the park is nice. - nedmtnman

Great park. Only reason we rated it an eight is because it doesn't have a full hook-up option. As a state park it is fabulous and gorgeous! - Team Lobster

This used to be our favorite but the last two trips it has gone to heck! We were here four nights and the bathrooms were NEVER cleaned. Floor was spotted and stained, TP all over, and trash can in bath never emptied. We used their showers once, and they were both (men & women) filthy. I mentioned these complaints to a ranger and was told to "be tolerant" as they are short handed. That seemed odd, as they had two host couples who never did anything that we saw but walk their dogs.
We won't be back to this state park, even though it is in a great location. - number one

Great state park camping! The scenery is breathtaking! Very similar to Mueller State Park in appearance, just smaller and closer to Denver. We stay here every year and enjoy it immensely. Too bad it was not full hookups, oh well. Watch out for the close trees when turning. We traveled the Peak to Peak highway to Estes Park this time. Worth the time and drive! We will be back! - colochoclab

Just BAD. The ladies shower backs up and you end up standing in backed up drain water. Another visitor there said it was worse than a jail shower. NICE. The campground is noisy. It is advertised as full hook up and once there we were told there was no dump hook up. Ridiculous. The sites are weedy and unkempt. If you have other options-use them. Do NOT stay here. - Kaykaydoo

This RV park is very sub-par. In a beautiful part of the country, there is no view--it sits down in a valley. Park is not kept up at all. Weeds were up to our knees in the campsite, bathrooms were disgusting. It was so bad, we forfeited the two nights we had paid for when the reservation was made and moved to the nearby KOA (they wouldn't even consider giving us a refund). It's no wonder you have to pay in advance, no one in their right mind would drive in and keep a reservation there otherwise. - Thor MC

Miserable stay! Weeds taller than my child, dirty bathrooms, apathetic staff, and seedy looking clientele led to a bad experience. I did not feel safe here. This place is very run down and it is obvious there have been zero repairs or maintenance since it stopped being a KOA years ago. - Samba

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

As I read many of the other reviews of this park, I feel a little foolish writing my review. I'm not sure that we were staying at the same park.
First, the positives. The staff was very friendly and efficient and we were escorted to our spot upon arrival. The problem with the road has been addressed and there is now an easier entrance.
Then, the negatives. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with concrete pads installed. There are a few trees that have been planted in the gravel that will be nice once they mature. The spaces are very narrow. Our neighbor had two trucks parked and although they were fully in their space, the truck bumper was about 3 feet from the bench of our picnic table. Too close for me. The 5th wheel across the parking lot had 2 trucks and a small car parked in their space. Pretty tight! The new entrance is not marked as such. Although we were on the right road, the place where we needed to enter looked like an exit. The upper loop where we were parked offered no view whatsoever, except of other rigs. We have been on the road for 4 months and this is the most we have paid for a spot, yet, this is the most unpleasant park that we have been in during this time. We will look for a different park next time we are through this area. - themom3

We stayed here on two different sites. The experience was night and day as a result. The pros of this park are the location, the camp store and some of the staff. The cons are major ones - is it all sharp, dusty gravel and some very clueless staff.
I thought we were prepared for the mountain climb with the reviews here - but what they really don't tell you is that the climb starts about 10 miles east of the exit. Once you get to the park there isn't really a climb. Ignore gps! There are brand new roads so once you get off the exit, follow the KOA signs. The first site was amazing - right on the edge (I think it was site 3) where all you saw were mountain views and lights of Central City. It was amazing. The biggest problem was there was absolutely no grass anywhere and the gravel wasn't polished - it was very tough if you have dogs.
The camp store is huge and will most likely have anything you want. The staff who work in there are hit or miss. There are a few - namely the owner, his son and a few long-term staffers - that were excellent. There were a few who were completely clueless. For example, I observed them watching three kids throw rocks (rocks, not stones) at chipmunks and they said nothing. I finally told the kids to stop. Being a campground, I'd hope that respect for wildlife was high on the staffers' radar. Nope. These same staffers also let their dogs loose in the park - observed, mind you, but loose.
The second site was not good. No view. Still the sharp gravel, still no grass, and with the lack of view it wasn't worth staying there. Because of the dust, you couldn't really enjoy spending time outdoors without the view.
We could potentially stay here again, but it would be a stop-through if anything. - Kamnel

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

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

Private residence with spaces set up around their home.
The site was located by a beautiful little stream.
Very inconvenient dog walk area. - Pungogirl

The stream campsites are in the owner's front yard. The "Rule Sheet" you get is a page long filled with more don'ts than do's. Parking and turning around are difficult. We were told they only took credit cards, but upon arrival we had to pay cash. Unfriendly staff. - arobic76

I made a 4 night reservation at this campground for 2 adults and 2 dogs (Lab and Husky) in a 35 ft motorhome. The website stated: shaded sites with trees...near or on creek...leash free dog area. When we arrived we were pointed to a gravel parking spot with no trees, no shade, no grass, no dirt, no table...just a parking spot in between 2 other RVs with maybe 5 ft between each. The "dog area" was the side of a mountain almost impossible to get to. I did show the host the print out of his website and asked for a creekside site. He told us those sites are for people without pets and if we didn't like the spot we could just leave. So we did. This was also a cash only place which they did not tell us on the phone, and we would have had to go back into town for the cash. We will never stay here. - Dale and Cyndi House

We stayed here for three days to visit friends in the area. This is the first and original RV park in the US of A. We knew coming in there were limited services (30 amp electric and water with dump site) but it was perfect. Good space between rigs, quiet, and many trees. It took us 20 min to get almost anywhere in west Denver. Showers cost $.25 for 2min ($1.50 for my shower) and were very clean. The roads thru the park were gravel and washed out somewhat, but passable. We will be back. We camped here in a motorhome. - k-n-r

Small campground right off I-70, so there is road noise. Sites are electric and water, no sewer. Area is manned by two campground hosts. Dump station costs $23. Not really big rig friendly as there are only a few pull thrus, mostly back-ins. Some trees close to the turns. Our site was fairly level. Bathrooms were clean, showers 25 cents per 2 minutes. This is a no frills campground, but there is a hiking trail and it is a great base to go do things in Golden, Denver, Idaho Springs. The historic Chief Hosa Lodge is right next door but is used as a rental facility. - mohocamper

The Rv sites are a bit tight but the hosts guide you in so there's no need to worry at all. They're amazing! The dump fee is $23 and the showers cost $.25 per two minutes and you can only use 2 quarters at a time. Beside the freeway noise the campground is fairly quiet. The hosts are incredibly friendly and very caring. If you want to grab a cancellation make sure you ask them in the morning and they'll come get you if one pops up. It's a close campground to a lot of neat say trips. One exit down/up is Walmart if you need anything. We did have two bears rummaging sites last night. - Kimmy B
