25 Parks near Wheat Ridge, Colorado
Sep 2016 - $35.00
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

We were wanting to stay near Denver and lucked out to get a reservation at Prospect RV Park. The park is in a great location about 15 miles from the 16th Street Mall. The owners are very welcoming and the park is clean. Sites are fairly close together, but hookups are positioned well. Wifi was not great but we were about as far from the office as you could get. And the office advised that the wifi was for light surfing and not streaming. Lot is gravel and our site was level. The laundry facility was nice and clean. No frills, but the location can't be beat for visiting downtown Denver. We would definitely stay here again. - chefb1969

This park is strickly for Elks Club members and their guests only. A very nice park with 40 sites. 50 amps FHU $20, 30 amp FHU $18. Water and electric only $16. They say they have a dump station. The lounge is very nice and they have lunches and dinners. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the area. - kathiecarlson

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

The roads are winding and they're not clearly marked, so it is difficult finding out where to go.
We were woken by police officers shaking our tent at 4 AM, as was everyone else at the campground. It was horrifying.
It is always very full, and there are tons of loud children and infants. - Hayley W

We are full timers and spent late May through August in this park. This is the only park I know of in Denver area that is NO reservations - which is great. You can almost always get in during week days, and often on weekends, just by showing up around the noon check out time. First come, first serve. The 2 catches are that you must be out one day after 14 days, and you can't occupy the park on holiday weekends - 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc. They are reserved for boaters with passes. You can buy an annual $16 senior pass, which eliminates the $7 a day entrance fee. We paid $12 a day, plus the one time $16. Wonderful, spacious sites by the lake, and some not so spacious further back. - charlyhors

We stayed here about 4 years ago, and the quality has stayed about the same, the sites are spacious, and its a good value for the $$. The fishing is ok and they have one dock near the boat ramp you can also fish from. The rangers are very helpful in seeing you are sucessful in catching something. I wish they had at least a dump station on site. - Fitzjohnfan

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

Nothing fancy here, cramped sites, some paved, some gravel. A good sized laundry room that isn't cleaned very often. Nice neighbors, mostly long term residents. No trees, and the grassy areas are marked to keep dogs off. There is a dog walk area. One of several not very destination-like RV parks in the Denver area. The staff is nice. - WanderingWraith

This was a place to park for a couple of nights. It did have full hookups, but other than that, I can't say much for this place. The sites are so closely jammed together that there isn't room to put your awning out. Dog walk is quite a hike from most RV spaces, and is just a gravel area. Signs at every grassy area warning you to keep your dogs off the grass. I saw a WiFi antenna on top of the laundry building, but could not access the WiFi without signing up and paying, which I don't do. I would not stay here again. - gfs1943

This park is the strangest we have stayed in. The sites are concrete and maybe 3 feet wider than our rig. A class A pulled in to the site next to ours, and his slideout was 14 inches from mine. His heater port was right outside our bedroom window, sounded like a tractor starting up. Must be a dog kennel next door to the park--not a relaxing morning. Moving around the site requires care as the next site was about 18" lower than ours with a steep slope to stumble over. Would not feel secure, were I not armed. I'm not sure I could have pulled out, if anyone was in the site below ours, very tight as it was. Stay at Walmart, you'll be better off. - Mike Hartwell

The interior roads are blacktop and the RV pad is concrete. The bad news is that in the entire park there are at best 6 level sites. We saw motor homes with their front wheels 6 to 9 inches in the air. Once parked I almost needed a step ladder to get in the door because the lot sloped away from the concrete pad. We pulled the picnic table over to use as a step. No cable TV and only fair Internet. Surprising because I was 25 feet away from a WiFi antenna. If you have a need to stay in Golden it is the only game in town. Overpriced for what you get. - joeandbea

Our site abutted onto a noisy industrial firm. Our view from the site was of ugly rusted 55 gal barrels and metal parts. Metal clanging sounds awakened us often. Sites are tight, wifi non-existent, pool and hot tub were closed for season even though temps were in mid-80s. We were charged peak season rate of about $60. When I asked manager for a rate reduction due to wifi and pool amenities not available, I was quickly informed I was wrong to ask for a reduction since all campgrounds have bad wifi and they charge peak rates into November without pool and hot tub. Very rude management. They believe the customer is always WRONG. Drive on by this place...there are other decent rv parks in the area. - MNDoodles

We stayed 3 nights just this week at a cost of $180 for 3 nights. All the other places in the Denver area were full so we had little choice.
Staff were nice - but we didn't have much contact with them to rave much more than this.
Grounds are clean and trash is picked up at your site by 10:00am each morning
$180 for 3 nights. Most expensive site rent I've ever paid in 25 years of camping
Space M34 was a bad space. It is located at the back of the park, next to long-term renters. The motorcycle rider (M36) goes to work at around 6:30am. NOT the best way to wake up in the morning. The 5-ers in space (M35) leave their dogs locked up all day. Periodically barking. Leveling on the very new concrete pad, should have been easier, but for the edge drop-offs, etc. Our 3 steps were way too high so they provided a step stool. Problem is - the ground slopes down so the step stool, any step stool used, was not solid and wobbled. This is a huge accident/injury problem.
Showers are not cleaned properly. In stall 3 - for two days there was a hair in the shelves(soap dish) in the shower and a crusty q-tip that the cleaning crew didn't see? Really? They missed this twice? The soap dishes in stall 3 had soap scum build up and dust accumulation. It was gross. The grout in the shower stalls has not been scrubbed in a while and again the soap dishes had major build up. Periodic use of a bottle of Tilex would go far to improving the shower stall cleanliness. The tops of the divider walls between the shower stalls has about 1/4 of dust accumulation.
The toilet stall door was broken, and instead of actually fixing, there was a hook and eye which left an inch space for others to see me doing my business.
Wifi was sparse and was in and out during our visit. For the price we paid - internet should be screaming fast.
We will be back in the Denver area but we won't be back at this place, nor any of the other affiliated RV parks. - JoshuaTree

Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful scenery. Creek right next to our site, and walking distance from a community park and downtown Golden. - vanvfam

This is a neat little park tucked away between downtown Golden and the Colorado School of Mines, right on Clear Creek. We stayed overnight once on the way up into the mountains and once on the way back. We will definitely be back for a longer stay. Not the best park for people looking for lots of peace and quiet. Families and college students are out tubing down the river (or walking by the park upstream, tubes over shoulders). Park entrance is controlled on the weekends to prevent tubers from taking over parking, and pedestrian traffic is limited to a path along the river, outside the park (several spots back right up to this path). Farmer's Market is a short walk away, and downtown Golden is just a bit farther. There is something nearby for everyone. - Boidster

This park is NOT for motorhomes. Actually, it is not satisfactory at all because the sites are way too small. Every two sites should be one - minimum. My 33 ft coach barely fit in site 7 and I had to park my compact car next to the office over 50 yards away. I couldn't use my picnic table because there wasn't enough room on my site. I could barely extend my two slideouts - one on each side. The tent pitched in the next site to me was where my picnic table should have been. The 24 hr laundry did not have a bill changing machine. There is literally no space to sit outside your rig unless you want to sit in your neighbors site or in the road. The owners knew the size of our rig and concluded that site 7 would work - NOT! Will never come back! - wjhgolf4

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

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
