This was a one night stop over before going to the Pike's Peak area. Nice park. Easy to navigate with a big rig. Concrete pad. Friendly staff. Each site has a covered table and fire pit. Our site was in a loop that had around 6 pull through sites, so there was lots of space between each unit. - therealSimpsons

We stayed 5 days in an electric only site. These sites have a concrete pad and paved roads. The FHU sites have a concrete pad but the roads are gravel. The FHU section is also closer to I-25. If you stay in a site as far west as possible the traffic isn't as noticeable. Nice trails to walk/bike ride around the park. Fishing from shore is the big draw here and there were a lot people doing it. No swim beach but I did see a couple people on SUPs one day. Plenty of OTA stations and nothing blocked our satellite view. Strong Verizon for hotspot. Plenty of grass for walking dogs around the park. Camp hosts clean the sites after each camper. We would stay here again. - thekites

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 little campground is trying to rebuild. It still needs a lot of work but the management is making progress. All utilities worked as they should. I would say it is still run down but it's a campground with a heart!! The staff and full timers I met were very friendly. I stayed here for a week while visiting family in the area. I would stay here again when I return. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

Oh my goodness, "rundown" is an understatement. I didn't use the restrooms because I was afraid of what might be growing in there. The train noise was deafening. I didn't sleep all night. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I would never come back. The one bright spot was the restaurant. The Pepperpod Restaurant was wonderful!! Good food. - lancecamper2
Oct 2007 - $27.00
The campground is located immediately off Interstate , so there is some highway noise and is behind the Pepper Pod restaurant. It is basically "carved out" of the back lot and each campsite is white rock pads on dirt/gravel drives. There is little or no shade or privacy and the sites are close together. It appears to be an old facility that is maintained to the basic minimum. A huge drawback is the railroad the runs within feet of the back property line and coal trains go by every half hour day and night. They blow the horns upon entering the town and all the way through. Don't plan on sleeping through this. It is barely acceptable as an overnight stay because it is run down, minimally maintained and train noisy. This is too bad because there is a desperate need for a nice RV park east of Denver on I-76. - marker82

This is a small RV park (about the size of a backyard) at 917 31st Ave in Greeley. There is no sign, but it's down a driveway behind an auto repair shop and apartment at this address. Water pressure is quite low, so had to hand fill the water tanks and use the internal pump. Of all the campgrounds I have stayed at this had the filthiest rest room (there is one coed rest room- when checking in was told to knock before using restroom) Owner only comes down on weekends, but you can mail a check or pay on the weekend. Although absentee management you are given a business card in case of problems or questions, and he is quick to return calls. I learned to leave my screen door shut, otherwise one of the many friendly cats in the RV park will invite itself in your RV! - Traveling man

We have stopped at this campground several times over the past 10 years to visit family in the area. Nothing has changed. The worn out laundry equipment, the broken down exercise equipment, even the worn out carpet in the office and pale green paint on the bathroom walls is still the same. The electric was spotty at times failing on several occasions during hot week we were there. Huge potholes that become mud holes at one end of the campground. Our neighbor complained of the pothole at his site and someone came by and threw a few shovel fulls of gravel down. The campground is mostly full of oil field workers who are generally quiet and leave early in the morning but their work vehicles and oversize pickup can make navigating some of the interior roads taxing. This is an old KOA campground that shows little evidence of improvement. If not for the workers it would be mostly empty because there is little to recommend it. Oh yes, during our day the stockyard stench was present nearly every day. - longgone

Didn't know if you paid monthly there is no refund if your stay is cut short. Didn't see rules till after you paid. Work truck broke down so he brought it home and traded out trucks and was driving his personal truck there while at work, and they accused husband of having aftermarket stuff done to his personal truck he had to use which was false it is all stock but they would not listen and were very rude about it. Space is horrible sites are so close together, not kid friendly. People are rude. So glad to be out of there and will never go back. Worst RV park we have ever been to! - Abeyta

Have stayed here before, so was not surprised. Nice park with level spots. As I only needed electricity and water, didn't opt for full hook ups. Did not watch television, so have no idea what the service is like. Staff was friendly and had no problems checking in. Was not asked age of rig. Good directions to site. I would stay here again when I am in the area. Price is very good. - redlou48

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

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

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

The lady in the office was wonderfully nice. The place was very clean and has a fenced in dog park. The wifi was very good and there are a lot of trees. But... the spaces are VERY close together. My neighbor had a crying baby inside that I could hear in my motorhome over my AC and TV. That is how close they are. My spot had absolutely zero water pressure, the water trickled out of the shower and the kitchen I could not even rinse out a glass of water. Might stay here again for one night in a pinch. - DogFriendlyGuy

The park is older but nice. The staff was very nice and helpful. The pool was wonderful and the laundry facilities were very nice. Majority of sites are for full timers with about 15% available for others. The sites are very close together so you do get to know your neighbors. Some road noise and fire station is close and busy. A lot of resident bunnies that like to come visit. - Greg and Brenda

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

This may be a very nice park in the future, but it is in the developmental stage! We had called 45 days previously for reservations. As we were getting close, we called around 11:45 AM to see if anyone would be in the "office" during the lunch hour. No answer; left message and telephone number. Arrived around 1 pm and had reservations for two nights (made on June 24); no one there (only "office" was an RV with flat tires) so we called campground number again and left another message. Additionally, there were four other names and numbers on a big board in front of RV so we called all of them and left messages. One gentleman called me back and said they were out of town and a lady was on duty. Left another message for her and explained what the gentleman said to me.
We saw an empty spot (only one) so assumed it was ours and set up. (It was the only empty spot) No one came back that night and no one called. No one called on Monday. Around 6:25 pm a woman showed up at our RV site, presumably the lady I called. Apparently, they had no record of our calling and making a reservation, and she said she did not get any voice mail messages either. Thankfully, no one needed our spot Monday evening so we paid $35/night (very pricey for this new park without laundry facilities or office). FYI, all but one site are for long-term campers. That one site was full for a week (we had already talked with them to see what they knew about checking in). Hopefully, they will have short-term camp sites sometime in the future.
It is VERY close to railroad tracks and they are VERY ACTIVE day and night. Long-term campers are workers and start their diesel engines early; i.e., 5:30 am.
On the plus side for this RV Park, these are large, long RV sites; mostly pull thru sites; fairly good WIFI and cell service; no problem with satellites since no trees.
If you are looking for a short term stay, look elsewhere. We would not stay here again. - vmi1962

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a very new camp ground and is still under construction. It is off to a good start with well laid out parking on crushed asphalt (I think it will be paved in the future). Sites are long & pretty level. Parking is back side to back side near your neighbor with hook ups between for both of you, while your front door side has plenty of space for a table. It appears the owners are working on the spaces in between to provide tables, but there weren't tables during our stay. No bathroom / shower house right now, but there are some portapotties. It is near a busy train track but the trains rarely blow their horns. It's mostly just the rumble you'll hear, which some folks may like. Overall, this place has good potential; and is an affordable place to stay while exploring the Denver area. My rating is based on it being a good place to park if you are self contained and don't expect 'resort' entertainments. - Rambling Registrar

This is an ongoing project, so during our time of stay it was just a field with a bunch of RV spaces. The owners are super friendly, they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The water hook-ups are top-notch and each site has both a 30 & 50 hook-up. There was no cable, but they offered free wifi and our antenna picked up over 30 local channels. They are constantly working to improve the place. The ''yards'' are huge! The way they have this place designed is genius. Each camper is back-to-back giving each lot a giant yard. There is a train track pretty close, BUT to our surprise it didn't bother us a bit. They don't blow a horn right by the park, and most of the time we never knew they were passing unless we were outside. They don't have any facilities, but like I said- they are just getting this place up and running so I'm sure in the future they'll have a lot more amenities. We were in the area for work and it was next to impossible trying to find an open lot in nearby cities. We stumbled across this little gem and we're glad we did! The town of Keenesburg is pretty small, but they have pretty much whatever you need (a little grocery store, dollar store, laundromat, auto parts, a few restaurants, ect.) If we have to go back to this region for work, we will definitely be giving the manager a call to reserve us a space! They have weekly rates as well as extended stay (monthly). Bottom line, these guys are good people.
Denver is about 30-40 minutes away
Nearest city is Brighton, 18 miles (Walmart, Lowes, ect) - MeganC

If I could put minus stars I would. We have stayed at this park off and on for 3 years due to required surgeries at the nearby Hospital. Our first stay the sewer backed up and flooded the entire grounds under and in front of our trailer. Park Maintenance would NOT clean up the mess or even offer. My wife and I were outside in the snow digging trenches to drain the filth away from our unit. It wouldn't have been so bad but I am was 69 yo and just had surgery. This was 2016 We stayed here again from August 2017 until present due to more required surgeries. The park has the same problems with the sewer backing up, thru-out the park now, and the Laundry Room will flood if all wash machines are used at same time. The water keeps shutting off when the temperature gets above 90 degrees! There is dog waste everywhere and the new Manager seems to not care as her dog waste is not picked up either. The electrical system thru-out the park needs to be re-done. The new manager took her dog into the office when it was a puppy and it peed everywhere on the carpet and left to dry. It smells like an outhouse at times. There is always a sign on the office door on weekends now stating that the "park is full." New management seems to really care about the park though, I guess. They paid some five-thousand dollars to put plants down the side of the Entrance Road instead of fixing the sewer, water, electrical system and the other problems. Word thru-out the park has it that the new manager wants everything taken out of the little store in the office because she doesn't want to deal with it. They have NO WiFi unless you are in the office and have the code, which they don't give out. One more surgery and we are out of here, to never return, if we don't get thrown out first! The new manager is forcing out people she doesn't like! She fought with one couple that had been here for 20 years so much that they just up and left. They were in their late 70's and never caused a problem! - oldman35x2

I would give this "campground" zero stars if I could! My husband and I were headed to Wyoming, then on to the Canadian Rockies, when we ended up needed to get our transmission looked at. The nearest facility that would even look at our motor home was near Denver, so we needed a place to stay for one night. There are very few campgrounds in the Denver area, and even fewer that had a space last minute. I called Barr Lake while we were en route. The woman who answered the phone said she was about to leave for the day, but would reserve a spot for us, we could do a self check in. Well, after driving and driving, we finally found the place around 6pm or so. I walked to the office, which was closed, but noted that our name was assigned a spot. I should back up and say that we were NOT impressed with the looks of this place before we even pulled in! As another reviewer mentioned, this looks like a permanent trailer park, with lots of junk laying around. We drove thru the place and could hardly believe how bad it was. After 11 years of rv-ing, this is honestly the worst "campground" we have ever seen! The junk was bad enough, but what really turned us off were the people wandering around the place, who looked to be on drugs, and/or were drug dealers. Very creepy place.
We'd been driving all day and were beat, but did NOT want to stay here. We found the site we'd been assigned to, then noticed that the electrical box had a pad lock on it! How on earth were we supposed to hook up? This dump wanted $40 bucks a night, plus an extra $2.00 per night for our little puppy (which is a joke!). We were so creeped out by this place we decided not to stay, it just did not feel safe! Ended up spending the night in a Walmart parking lot. The first time we've ever done that before. Certainly not comfortable or ideal, but it was 1,000 times better than Barr Lake! Oh, and the "camground" was also right next to a busy expressway and railroad track! - fly girl

Full hookups, pleasant staff, mostly gravel. Good value for Denver area. Close to Denver and good access to fast developing shopping mall with food and shopping. - Supdog11
