The place is nicer for the smaller type trailers or pop ups. I would say there is more sites for tenters than trailers/popups. It is in a nice location and a nice campground. Go into St. Elmo and feed the chipmunks. There are beautiful hummingbirds too. There is a little lake that you can walk to from the campground and fish. The fish aren't the biggest but at least they were biting. Not a real big place, but it did the job. There were trees and a stream. I loved the white noise.
I like this place in spite of no-hook ups. The scenery is nice. No neighbors immediately adjacent to you. Trees are near most sites. My kids road their bikes to and from Dumont Lake where we fished. My girls enjoyed catching butterflies with their new nets. Last time we stayed here we had a tent only. It was nice to travel in our trailer. There are large picnic tables but the ants seemed to like them too. Trails are available nearby for hiking and biking. We drove into town to take our tubes down the Yampa river (20 minutes away). The kids always enjoy floating down the river. There are two water pumps and outhouses nearby most of the sites. There are sites just for tenters. The area is beautiful and near Rabbit Ears Pass.
This is a great family resort. Indoor and Outdoor pool. Free miniature golf, shuffle board, tether ball, basketball court and more. They have steak nights, bingo, and a band. Look at web site for calendar of events. They have a lot of shaded areas. Big place with cabins too. It is within 25 minutes of the Royal Gorge. A lot of places to go white water rafting too. We plan on going there again soon. It has been under new ownership in the past 2 years and they are trying to spiffy up the place constantly. One of the dump stations was on the fritz when we were there but it did not cause any problems for us. The site we were at was by a running creek and the white noise made it really nice to sleep to. I think this place will only get better as time passes due to the new ownership. They are very much into trying to improve the campsite. Members get to camp there for $3.00 a night plus get free ice. The scenery is awesome!
We enjoyed the campground. We liked that they offered shuttle service to the dock and Resort Hotel which are both in walking distance. The golf course looked awesome. The kids loved the pool and arcade room which we were able to use since we were staying at the RV campgrounds. Lake Vermillion is a great lake. The sites with out hookups are the ones with the best location. Any site with hook ups was in the middle with no trees. I would stay here again because of the marina/dock and hotel access. My sister in-law won $140 dollars on the penny slots. It is no Vegas, but will do while your camping.
We stopped here on our way back from MN. We really enjoyed it and are planning a trip back. Most of the sites have a lot of trees and there are sites with lake views. They only take reservations during Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekend (3 day min.), otherwise, it is always first come; first serve for campsites only. This seems to be the place if you want to fish. We saw a lot of people bringing in the fish. The place will tow your boat to the launching area if you don't have a vehicle to pull it there. Boat rentals are available. They also offer storage of your RV or Camper for $40/mo. They have a play area for the kids. We encountered a wind storm but it was no problem for our Hybrid/Trailer. They have a very nice store where you can buy your license and anything you forgot. A gas pump is available too. The sites are approx. less than 1/4 mile from beach area. It looks like the water used to come up to the lake view sites a long time ago. I would recommend trying Van's.
