Very decent park with really friendly staff. Very quiet at night. Laundry room was really nice, very clean, only $1.25 to wash & dry, & had a TV, VCR, & huge video library to watch! Bathrooms had shower & sink in them & are cleaned a few times daily. The back fence backs up to community park, trails, lakes, playground, & more. - User3782

We stayed at Prospect RV for 5 days in April. First let me correct a previous review. They do not have 50 amp service. At first that was a concern for us but it was cool enough that we never had to run the AC. The staff said they were trying to update to 50 amp but had to wait for utility company to replace transformers. There is a lovely city park right next door so walking dogs was very easy. Not far from all the things we wanted to see and do in Denver. It was a little tight getting into our spot with a 40' 5th wheel but we've been in worse. Getting out would have been impossible if not for the staff. My husband went to the office the day before we left to ask them for help. When we went out the next a.m. to pull out, every car had been cleared out in our row (there are a lot of long term residents). A staff person even went so far as to call me after we had left because someone had found one of our dogs ID tags and she wanted to send it to me because she didn't want him traveling without one. We would definitely stay here again in cool months and, if they upgrade to 50 amps, we would stay any time. There wasn't room for our tow vehicle at the site but parking was close by. All hook ups were where they should have been. - jgothier

This park is very close to Denver for access to the various attractions there and just west of the city. The staff is very friendly, and bathrooms/showers are very clean and private. A couple things kept me from giving it a 9 or 10 across the board. We never could get connected to the WiFi, and the spaces were very tight. We had a pull-through space and had to move the neighbor's picnic table in order to pull out. There's a beautiful park accessible from the pet walk area with trails, lakes, Clear Creek and the usual park items. We were just here for one night and would definitely stay again. - Eldereaglewatchers

We stayed in the electric/water only portion of the campground. The electric was 30 amp. Spaces are small with just enough room to let the slides out. It was hot in Denver while we were there and the power just could not keep up with the demand. Our air conditioner would barely work. There also is no dump on site. There is also a FHU area with 30 amp power. There are no reservations and these sites are hard to get. Wifi is not available on the sites; only in the clubhouse. The clubhouse is nice and spacious, food OK, drinks good. Not sure I would I would stay there again without a sewer hookup. - Phaeton Joe

Called ahead and was told by the RV park host that there was one full-hook site available. When we arrived site #14 was empty so we took that. Very tight space with a 90-degree back-in. Ok for a motorhome but a large 5th wheel may have issues. Good 30 amp electric with very high water pressure. Make sure you use a restrictor. We went to the bar to pay for our site. Very friendly lodge. Dinner was a huge smothered burrito which was delicious. We will be back. - StarlifterFE

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

A big disappointment given the lovely pictures on their website. The neighborhood is crime central. I witnessed the coke machine being stolen in the middle of the night. I will not return. - BobbieM

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

Location, location. Finding a spot in the Denver area is very hard. This park is near I70 and U.S. 6. Easy to get to most attractions. Tight spaces and a lot of turnover. Very nice picnic area and playground. Odd requirements to register. You must show proof of ins. and regist. for all vehicles. There are gravel pull throughs long enough for most rvs and nearby tow vehicle parking. A downside is little physical security. Park is open at night with no gate. Sheriff patrols occasionally. We had no problems but would have preferred more controls. Limited 50A sites. We would stay here again. - captaincakes

Fairly quiet location. Sites are close together so if you have a bunch of slides on both sides and use your awning you aren't going to be happy. Level gravel site. - mrracechaser
May 2018 - $30.00
We rolled up midweek with no reservations. The amount of paperwork to get a site was crazy. DL, registration, proof of insurance. Then we had to be "escorted" to the pull thru 30 amp site. It must have taken nearly an hour to get from the gate to the site. The site is narrow and water, electric only. Gravel and right on top of the neighbors. - Brian n Barbara
Jul 2015 - $30.00
The spaces in this park are very narrow & no space to park tow. My slide was almost touching my neighbor. Couldn't open awning because of closeness. Roads are very narrow & poorly maintained. Many old RV's with people living in them. Have 33 ft. rig & had difficulty getting in spot because of cars parked part way in road. Broke passenger mirror because of this issue. In addition, I did not feel safe here. I am a Thousand Trails platinum limited member & will contact them about my concerns, misleading pictures, & representation of this park. - vickie438

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 was the worst RV Park experience I've ever had. I arrived after an 8 hour drive from Albuquerque. They charged my credit card and then led me to my trailer site and I backed in and set everything up. I ran down the street to Camping World to get some supplies and when I returned, the night manager and another trailer were sitting in front of my trailer looking upset. They told me that I was parked in their space and had to move. I said that this was the space that they led me to and I made my reservation 2 months in advance. They told me that they don't reserve particular spaces and I had to move. I asked where I was supposed to move to and they showed me the "overflow" space right next to where I was. On the map it shows the this space as the dog walk and there were obvious signs of much peeing and pooping on the grass. I said that I'm not paying $175 to park 3 nights in the dog toilet. Then I was told that was the only space remaining. I said if you don't reserve particular spaces for anyone, then why does this other trailer get the space that you put me in? They said it was because they are staying 10 nights for $600. So after much yelling and screaming with the front desk, I demanded my money back and left. Never, ever stay at this RV Park! I ended up having to stay in a parking lot since all other RV parks in the Denver metro were full. - Jay Leutwyler

Overall park is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Now for the sad part. The park is run like a Prison Camp with owners treating guests like it is their privilege to park there. Rates are extremely high for a park with no cable, poor internet, and camping spots that are so small that RV damage is almost expected getting in and out of your site. Also, in my two week stay they moved me 4 different times for no reason they could articulate?? They charge extra for anything they can, so be prepared if you have an extra vehicle or family member. Bottom line, if you read all the reviews and still stay there, it is on you. I made that mistake but never again. WalMart parking lot would be an upgrade to this money hungry RV park. - B Boy

This place is great for location to hiking trails but a little pricey. The site pads are concrete and level but the other areas of the site is inclined so having a level spot for chairs, grills, and tables is a challenge. - utex61

In my opinion, the RV park was disgustingly dirty (mold in the bathroom showers) and there is no accessible shower stall. In my opinion, the park manager was consistently rude, unprofessional, and extremely difficult to deal with. The park manager was not helpful with 1) RV bookings, 2) Did not correct their amp service when it didn't work, 3) Took 2 days to get the water spigot at the front of the park fixed, 4) Allowed smoking in the bathrooms (instead of redirecting smokers to the designated smoking area), 5) Accessible requests were ignored and/or denied. If you have any type of handicap, in my opinion you should consider finding a different park. - PR Travleler

Right downtown but you feel you are out in the country. Had a Creek side site. Will go back again. A lot of hiking in the area. - Mleeder

Absolutely a great park. So close to downtown Golden (5 minute walk), right on Clear Creek. Great walking trails accessible from park. Will stay here anytime in the Denver area. - SC RVer

This park is truly a hidden gem! We never expected to have a campground in the city where you can't even see the city. This is a huge city park with lots and lots to do in it. They have horses, boat rentals, beach, lots of trails and biking. Electric only sites. Good cell coverage. The sites are HUGE. Easy to get to from C-470 There is a little noise from the C-470 traffic, but we didn't notice it inside. No shade. We would definitely stay here again. - jacknpeg

Our site was very spacious and level. The road is paved and well maintained. It is an easy ride into Denver. 2600 acres just outside a big city -- great combination. The down side is if you have dogs, which we do. There isn't really any grass; it is brush, which is cut back for the sites. My dogs didn't like walking on it. There is also some foxtail around, which can be dangerous for a dog if it gets in its eye or nose, so you have to be careful. Still, it's a terrific value and we would definitely return. - Dapper

Wide gravel site. All interior roads paved and well maintained. Dump station and water fill station easily accessible to 45' motor home. Dumpsters scattered throughout park. - blumarlin

I stayed at South Park twice in a two week period and I will NEVER stay there again.
A Walmart parking lot would be a much better place than here.
Both times I was treated rudely by the groundskeepers and swore at twice by them!
And, when I went to the office to ask for one more night they brought up my reservation on the office computer, then said..."Sorry, we are all booked up until next spring!"
So I said, "Well, I guess I have to leave in the morning.", to which the park manager said "Yup!"
Well, at my next stop the very next night I was looking at my paperwork and realized that I had indeed already paid for that night...but they just let me go and still haven't refunded me for the extra night they charged me for.
I have several friends that live there and have been told that since I left 3 1/2 weeks ago nobody has been in the site I was in both times.
The park is very nice, laundry facilities are good and the swimming pool is awesome, but the RV spaces are so close and tight to back into, plus there are cars and trucks parked in the street that makes backing into the sites even more difficult since the sites are barely long enough for the RV's, let alone the tow vehicle.
30 amp plug was loose and had to use a padlock to hold my surge protector plug from falling out. Found out later that it is against park rules to padlock the power pole.
Plus, the pool and laundry room closes at 8 pm...hardly enough time for travelers to take advantage of these amenities.
It is almost like they really don't want RV'ers to stop there...only year round residents! - John_D

The only thing this place has going for it is their location. Staff are rude, people are rude, the facilities are dirty and the place has gone to hell in a hand-basket. I wonder if the owners truly know what's going on. - Randall S

May 6 - 12, 2018 This park is located in a seedier part of town. The first night there there gun shots rang out, which made you want to duck and cover. The facilities at the park are dirty and poorly maintained. The sites are not level and some just have mud or piles of rocks around the sites. The park manager is a poor excuse for a manager. He has no people skills and destroys personal property without notice to the owners. If you interact with him about your property he destroyed, his best answer is "it is none of your business" and he is going to call the cops. He also tells you to leave if don't like it. We left early and there was no refund. You have been warned about this park. Go there at your own risk. - Winniebee
