4 Parks near Sterling, Colorado

Nice pull-through sites on dirt/gravel with shade trees. Level side to side but some front to back leveling needed, so had to disconnect for a one night stand. Utilities were very well located. Some freeway noise and a train in the middle of the night but beautiful sunset, and other campers were quiet except for some workers leaving early. Did not use the available pool but it looked fine. - Old Geezer

Very tight sights. Pool was clean. Had to prune trees before getting into our sight. Definitely a one night stop over. Not much road noise. Quite a few seasonals. - stickyeye

This place is a dump. Apparently a former Yogi Bear facility. They had self check-in when we arrived at night. No one on staff for any assistance. Just drop your money in the drop box and choose your own site. This place is located in no man's land, the stretch of Interstate in northeast Colorado that has very few cities or campgrounds. The owners of this place take advantage of that fact and I'd guess that the majority of campers chose this campground as their only choice. Complete lack of maintenance, weeds all over, permanent campers in disrepair, Interstate noise, dusty, scary looking main building that isn't staffed. - yousah

We stayed at the inlet grove CG for 1 night (electric only); only 1 other camper in the huge CG on a Tuesday night. There are 2 other CG's available at this huge state park. Water spigot close by, ~15 miles north of Sterling. Just follow the signs after exiting Interstate 76. The area is barren...a few trees with some grass. Probably a great recreational area if you are into watersports. Would have rated it higher if we were interested in watersports. The reservoir is used for agricultural irrigation which accounts for the low water level in August. - katinfoco

We stayed at the Elk Ridge campground. The sites I saw were generally not level but not extreme. The water from the hydrants tasted as if it sat in a rubber hose. We bought bottled water to drink. There is a charge for showers @75¢ for three minutes. You also need to pay an entrance fee for every day that you camp. Because of the location there is not much shade but a shade structure is provided for every campsite. The park itself is ok but geared to boating. - Dewey Smith

YOUR GPS WILL TAKE YOU ON STRANGE PATHS TO GET TO THE PARK . Take main street through Sterling to 7th AVE (NOT 7th ST). Go north on 7th Ave to CR 46. Turn left on CR 46 and watch for signs.
The reservation system is not good. You must make reservations three days ahead or stay one day at a time. Locals make lots of reservations and never show up. Most of the campground we used had reservations starting on Thursday through the weekend. There were less than twenty sites occupied when we left on Saturday morning.
Other than those two things, everything else was very good. Wild turkeys, small black ferret like animals, prairie dogs, large white water birds we have yet to identify, beautiful sunsets and cool nights. - geode

This park used to be a trailer park, but after the flood in 2013 they pulled out all the old trailers and put in grass, concrete, and fences. The spaces are back in and can be a bit tough to back into with the fences. You do get a fenced in yard with trees and sprinklers. You park on a concrete pad which makes leveling a breeze. The spaces are designed for long term stay, so the sewer and water connections are designed to go under the vehicle. This is by far a very nice place to stay, the owner is incredibly nice and easy to work with, he will even help you back into your spot. It is a mom and pop operation, so I'm not sure if they accept credit cards. The alternative is Buffalo Hills and all it took was one drive through the park to convince me to stay anywhere else. I usually stay for more than a month, so I'm unclear of what the daily rate is. If you are staying for only a night it may not be the most convenient park, but it is worth the extra effort. - Mike Benedik

Just a rock/gravel lot with 6 or 8 hookups. However, they are pretty level and have 50 amp, water and sewer. It is pretty easy to get to, but on the west side of town. This is much easier to find and drive to than the STate park which has no sewer and water at the sites.
So I would use again as an overnight stop. Also there just aren't many parks within 70-80 miles north or south of Sterling. - twindman

This is a new park less than a year old and only has 8 back in sites with full service without cable. The sites are long and level which makes it a good stop over for a night as you do not have to unhook. There is a RV parts dealership on site and the owner is very helpful. - Irish2
