We stayed in this park for 2 months and did enjoy our time there. There were some negative items, but will start with the positive. The creek was close by and a walking/biking trail close. The grass was maintained by the park and it was well shaded with mature trees. Shopping for anything you need is close by. The negatives: close to a busy highway, but that didn't bother us. Try to get a site away from the highway if you can. There were problems with sewer at times, but management promptly took care of that. The Denver area is extremely hard to find places to stay and so this was the best we found. Would stay again. People very friendly in the park. Price reflects monthly rate. Wi-Fi only available in the office. - happy travelers

I stayed here for over a month. At first glance, this place looks shabby, and it has an inconvenient entrance/exit, but once you're there, you start to see it's actually a pretty decent place to stay. It's 20 min to downtown, about 45 min to Red Rocks and it butts up to Denver's amazing run/bike trail. - riding_on_air

This is a former mobile home park. The park has lots of shade and level concrete pads to park on. The location is nice because it is next to the creek. However, the grounds could use some updating. I don't think anything has been updated here since it was first constructed 60 years ago. Price seemed a bit steep at $38. We were charged for four people even though we had only two adults and two children under two years old. Good Denver metro area location. Most people staying in the park are long-term residents. - je23dr13

Office is closed Sat and Sun. Went in Sat and our packet was waiting at office. No cash or credit cards. Placed check in envelope and deposited in night box. Sites are all back in and level. Sewer hookup a bit high. We had site right by pool which was still open even after Labor Day since weather was warm. Separate space for car by side of coach. Other tows were parked in front of RVs. Didn't use any amenities but appearance of park was well kept and clean. Park is quiet with very little traffic near us. Most of park appears to be mobiles and park models with RVs sprinkled in except for those daily sites where we were. We have been through Denver many times and always stayed on outskirts. This park is right in town and easy in and out. Wish I found it earlier. Would stay here again. - Jmh510

We were desperate for a site in Denver and very happy to find this park. The laundry facilities were inexpensive and very clean. The long term residences are, for the most part, neat and tidy. The park is certainly quiet. The clubhouse was clean and pleasant. We were fortunate enough to have utilities that were easy to reach, not the ones in the center of the slab. Other reviews have talked about the speed bumps which are effective to say the least. The curbs are difficult to back over. The rates were pricey and they do not take credit cards. We had to park our car on the street as did many others. - codgette

Wow. I want to say something nice but I'm having a tough time. We needed the site for storage and electric only. There was no break on the price. That is the first time in 6 years we have paid full price when we weren't even in the unit. The interior roads are narrow for large rigs - doable, but narrow. Lots of speed bumps- more like speed mountains - they are big. The handful of sites for RVs are narrow and short, with broken concrete. We thought for sure we had busted a tire trying to back into the site. We had to park the car sideways to keep it out of the road. Not much space between sites either. It was hot so we had all three A/Cs running. After a few minutes, they all shut off. We reset the breaker at the post and tried again. Same deal. After the third time, we went to the office. They said it was due to the service that was being done on some lines in the park. Not so. My husband figured out that the 50amp circuit breaker was bad. Back to the office. The lady at the front desk pointed at a man leaving in a golf cart and said that's who we needed to talk to. We chased him down and explained the problem. First thing he did was look at his watch - 20 minutes until the office closed. Uh oh. Although he was less than personable, he did replace the circuit. And don't even think about using the WIFI. It was unusable. - Free

We did not stay overnight although we had paid for two nights. There was a site with several tents and quite a few people staying in it in the Cottonwood Loop. After we parked at our campsite north of this site, we walked around and noticed human feces, trash and a horrible smell coming from the campground. We had some lunch, then an altercation broke out and several of the people moved to another campsite opposite ours. We left. Very unpleasant experience. - isabel poppit

Have stayed here numerous times over the past 4 years; generally in the spring and rated a 9. Trip this time is for a pre-thanksgiving visit with family. This trip, the park has changed dramatically! Many very, very old RV's; some "home-made" rv's; multiple tents/occupants in several sites; some campers storing belongings around/under rv's as if "permanent"; 4 sites had laundry hanging outside; unattended dogs outside in pens at 3 sites; observed multiple dog "poops" with "no-scoop". Did not see any SP patrols as previously. Common areas not maintained as before. Maybe it's the "Fall" season changeover waiting on "Spring"; I don't know, but it's sad. Don't know if would stay here again, but there's not many other choices for campgrounds in the area. - garton

You do need a Colorado State Park Pass or a $9 per vehicle per day fee in addition to camping fee of $18 for dry camping or $28 for FHU. Sewer connection is towards the rear of the pad so you may need an extension for your sewer hose. Good Verizon cell and data, campground wi-fi worked adequately on weekdays and was marginal on the weekend, granted the amount of people is way less than during the regular camping season. Lots of mule deer, turkeys, magpies and coyote's reside here especially in the campground!
Reservations are a must except for the winter months Nov - Mar. One FHU loop is for reservations only, one FHU loop is for walk-ups with a 14 day maximum. and one loop is dry camping only. Campsites are not sold or available until noon each day, so you can put your name on a list when office opens to be first come first serve at noon to get an available spot. - dmkimm

Spent a week here. Very nice and scenic. Lots of walking trails. Laundry was an extra bonus at a state park. You did have to pay a $8 daily fee on top of the nightly rate. - Paige Taylor

We were able to reserve a site available by walk-up. It's a 3-mile drive from the entrance to the campground. All the sites in this campground are pull-throughs and situated in large loops encircling each other, so you still have neighbors, but everyone feels pretty spaced out from each other. It's a pretty good system. The roads are all paved and sites are all concrete pads and level. No view of the lake from the campground, but you're far from the city and feels like you're out in nature on the prairie. It's a nice retreat for the city-dwellers who don't want to travel far away. - Sara C.

We stayed at Chatfield SP for two weeks shortly after staying at nearby Cherry Creek SP for two weeks, so drawing comparisons is inevitable. Chatfield gets high marks for offering full hookups and level, concrete sites for only $30/night. There are lots of paved trails for biking and walking, and we never ran out of places to walk our dog from the campground (including walking him down to the lake for a swim). Although the park has great views of the nearby mountains, we found the park scenery itself to be pretty bland--very few trees, mostly just open fields. Of the four camping loops, we found that the sites in A, B, and C were fairly close together. We chose D loop which has much larger and more private sites. Although we saw a strong signal from the campground WiFi we were never able to get connected. Our Verizon and AT&T both hovered around 1-2 bars of signal so we switched on our cell booster for better speeds. The fenced 70-acre dog park ($2/day or $20/year) is very nice, with paved walking trails and several small lakes for dogs to swim in. It's on the other side of the State Park though, which means a 7-mile drive from the campground, around the lake, on 25 MPH roads, so plan on 15 minutes each way to get to the dog park. The park roads are generally good, but some sections are new and wide with bike lanes, and some sections are old and narrow, so you WILL be driving slowly behind bicyclists pretty often. It also takes at least 15 minutes to exit the park and get to the nearest stores. Despite these drawbacks it's a very nice park and we'll likely return. - LifeRebooted

Great clean city park, and value for the location. Park is about 3o minutes from denver, only 10 minutes to red rocks amphitheater. Close to major highways, restaurants, grocery stores, and shops. Electric only sites, although there is water spickets throughout the park, if you get lucky can just run a hose over and fill up your tank. Cell service worked great for At&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Sites are very large with fire pits and a picnic table. Tons of walking and biking trails surrounding the park A.so borders a golf course, which has a walking/biking path that runs through it. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

We stayed at Bear Creek for three days in a motorhome. Though the sites weren't level, we were able to get stabilized without to much difficulty. The sites were roomy and quiet, with plenty of room for tow and great Verizon signal. We had friends join us who stayed in the cabins and their only complaint was the terrible smell in the pit toilets. It was hardly bearable, but fortunately they could just use ours. That did require us to go to the dump station more than we'd anticipated, but all in all it wasn't a big deal. We would stay there again. - lpsmith

Very quite, great lake facilities and other sports if desired. The area were the camp sites are do not have large trees as yet but they have been planted. It was a mix of tents, RV's of different ages. There were children, old folks like us, 20 somethings but very quite the 3 days we were there. - LindaGarrard

The worst place in the country. Stayed here 1 year for work because nowhere else to stay in the area. Very dirty, combat cockroaches, bedbugs, earwigs and feral cats. Raised rent to $1100 for 28 days. Truck broken into 5 times. Reported to management and they told me that it's not their problem. Very rude!!! Gypsies that don't watch their children so they run wild everywhere. No WiFi. This place is a ghetto slum and management is slum lords that don't care and told me so to my face. Manager will ride around in golf cart and stare at me. Very very uncomfortable. If possible Do Not Stay Here! Police will not even investigate the break ins. Office is dirty. The manager is very rude. - traveling today

All the previous comments tell it all...HOWEVER...we paid $295 for the weekly rate plus $46 for one extra night! What we got was reliable 50amp electric, good water pressure and a sewer hookup in the back of the site. For what the owners charge they should be able to upgrade the washrooms, showers, pool, etc...and have a great park. When the VA hospital opens, they will have no problem filling the park. - loneranger

The owner is nice the very first days but changes very quickly. Once you are set up she is rude and spends her days checking on you in her little golf cart. I have nothing against owners checking that everything is ok by making rounds but the owner of this park stops and stares which is very uncomfortable. The restrooms are disgusting: the sinks are broken, the doors don't lock properly and toilet paper is always out! The showers are very dirty. The sites are not well maintained, the power doesn't work very well, I was always plugging and unplugging to have power. My husband's kids came for the summer and the morning after their arrival, Fay, the owner, came to ask me "are these your kids?" in a very aggressive and rude way. I said yes and she said "it's $5/day per kid to stay here". We left the same day!!! Not only it's outrageous as we pay for a site that is not even nice, the swimming pool is condemned and the owner will not fix it because it costs too much money and she told me, before we brought the kids, that kids were annoying and noisy!!! Nice! Anyway, unless you really need a RV park for the night or the week, I wouldn't recommend this park. She charged $269/week for a dirty, not welcoming, not well maintained site. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!!!! - Lt-11-03

One of the best FamCamps I've had the pleasure of using. This is attested to by the long lead time for reservations. You can not reserve more than 30 days in advance, wait to 29 or 28 and you likely won't get in.
The campground and spaces are spacious, clean and for a Military Base very quiet. Many pull through and back in sites, first come first served so arrive early on your reserved date to get the best sites. Most sites have sloped entrance / exit, but the pads are flat & level.
They have a long term issue with water in the campground so the normal $24 rate was reduced to $10. - OpaS

We came in after hours without a reservation. The camp host's wife pointed out a few open pads to select from. The following morning we registered at the MWR office which is about 3 miles away. The pads are excellent concrete with full hook-ups. No shade. No view. There was an adjacent grassy area where bombing range target vehicles are stored, that was a good place to let my dog run off lease. It was fun watching F-16s take off close by. - Tidy Boy

We enjoyed our stay at this campground very much. There are nice concrete pads with full hookups. Shade is pretty much non existent so getting your satellite to connect is easy. What we really appreciated was the WYFI service. With a $50 refundable deposit you received your own MYFI unit with unlimited data. We have never encountered this before and were very pleased with this great service.
Camphost was very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Reservations in the summer are a good idea. The campground was very busy throughout our stay with little availability.
Grass is very shaggy around your sites but remember this is a high desert area.
We would definitely stay here again. - Wgcamper

I cannot believe this place. We reserved it because it is billed as the only RV Park in the city of Denver. We wanted to be close to downtown, so visit the mint, and museums. Although the park itself is reasonably clean, the neighborhood is horrible. I felt like I was staying in an inner city ghetto. Its on a major street, sirens constantly all night, and hookers walking the park! They actually knocked on our door and offered, well, you can figure that out! We didn't have a car, and when we walked a few blocks to a liquor store, we were approached by someone offering to sell us marijuana, and by a beggar. We had breakfast one morning at a nearby restaurant, where we met a local cop. From her, I learned that the owner of the RV Park also owns the run down, seedy motels and trailer houses surrounding it, and is uncooperative with law enforcement. Her comment was, "Why in the world is someone like you, staying at that dump?" Absolutely avoid this place at all costs. - Mallory

Good news: Close to Hyland Hill's Waterworld. Bad news: More squatters than RV'ers. Make sure you lock everything as it sounded like the police were busy enough in this area. - dpthdiver

This is a perfect campground for an urban camping trip. It has great places to walk and include your dog. Its very close to the light rail. You can get to anywhere in Denver and the mountains. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent is because the sites are unlevel, but hey, it's in the foothills. - Terry and Bob Simmons

As others have commented, this is not a destination but it is a decent place to stay for a night or two. We stayed here because the campground we had stayed at during the week was booked for the weekend and we wanted to stay in the area. This park has a bizarre layout. We have a 45' rig and were assigned one the parallel spaces. Both the spots behind and in front of us were occupied so my husband had to parallel park the RV into a very tight space. It took a few tries, but he got down eventually. We were very close to our neighbors so don't expect any privacy in your outside area. There was a picnic bench though. There were some spots that looked like they had long term occupants, but these were camp hosts. The place didn't look run down, but it was a little cluttered and dirty. They have a very nice grass area that our 3 dogs enjoyed (not fenced in so no off leash) and they also have a dirt track where I took the dogs for a run. The one awesome thing about this park was the WiFi. It was fast and it never dropped. I would stay here again if I had to, but it's not a place I would go out of my way to visit. It was also fairly expensive for water and 30 amp only, no sewer. - Danielle_S

Easy access to the park with our larger sized 40'+ Big Rig RV but negotiating into spaces would be difficult if park is busy. Pricey for a basic park with no sewer. Great shower houses. Weirdest design for a campground I have ever seen. 30 amp RV's park parallel in spots along the main road or in a tight gravel parking lot. Newly paved 50 amp back-in sites put RV's within inches of each other; no room to walk between RV's if they have slides opened. With 12 (50 amp) sites available there were 6 RV's here during our stay all nonsensically parked side-by-side rather than every other spot. Some highway noise from I70 and Highway 6. We stayed here because this is the only place where we could get a site within 100 miles for Labor Day weekend and having no other choice is the only way we would stay again. - Snidely Whiplash

We stayed here overnight. We had a pull-in site. The power was good. The water pressure was high; the manager loaned me a pressure reducer.
The interior roads were crushed stone. The park is a couple of blocks from I-70 but is easy to get to the park. The management is helpful. - skigramp

Nicely hidden in a residential/commercial area, but convenient to major highways. Not many amenities (pool, rec room, etc.) but a good "base camp" for exploring the Denver area.
Lots of semi-permanent residents (relocating to the area and looking for housing, but also some who make the RV park their home). - grandflic

Very crowded, my site had no sewer, and dog walk was a long way off. - Rex & Carol
