Great site with easy access from Interstate. Roads were a little narrow and sites were close together, but it was a great park. Lots of things to see and do in Golden. Pool was cleanest I have seen. WiFi was in and out. Will stay here anytime I am in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't give very many 10's but this is an excellent park. They'd get a 10 1/2 if they had cable. Antenna pulls in an adequate number of stations. Wi-fi was good most of the time. Power and water pressure acceptable. Sites are paved, wide and the pull-thrus are long enough for big rigs and tow vehicles. Sparkling clean pool (temperature was perfect) and hot tub. Clean bathrooms/showers. Roomy laundromat with very reasonable prices. Lounge area with a pool table and an exercise room. Nice little hill to climb with a picnic area at the top. Extremely nice people in the office. Quiet at night. Convenient to highways (but far enough away to keep noise to a minimum) and to Golden. Two restaurants that you can walk to. Convenience store across the street. Cute little vintage amusement park just down the road ideal for children. Resident bunnies that came around every night to beg for carrots. Your trash is picked up every morning from your site. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.....there are not a lot of other choices in Golden. And, yes, they have a no-refund policy, but it's rare to find a park that doesn't. Park seems to fill up every night, so reservations are strongly recommended. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't be fooled by the pretty pictures on their web site. This place is run down and badly in need of repair. Our concrete pad was unlevel, cracked, and uneven. It was difficult to level our big rig. Some of the asphalt pads were in the same condition. The roads are worn out and there are many pot holes. Also, the roads are very narrow, making access to the site difficult. There are no level places to connect or disconnect your toad. The grass is dead and brown. A rip-off for fifty dollars a night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed here two nights and will stay here again. Park was conveniently located. People were very friendly and helpful. Service was great. I stayed in a pull thru, and have a 30ft mobile home with a toad. I had full hookups with cable. Everything worked fine. Restrooms and showers were nice. I like to stay in RV parks that are rated 8 or higher. This exceeded my expectations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First impressions were great! We had a 10 month-old baby and everyone was so very friendly and nice. Very clean! The location was excellent as well, the trail from the park into the city of Golden was awesome! The downside was no refunds. We were there for two weeks with a third on the books and paid for. My husband's grandmother in FL died and we had to fly home. We made reservations to put the RV in short term storage on the Air Force base. I asked for a refund for the last few days. It was a flat-out, "No." So, we ended up in Florida, at a funeral, still paying Dakota Ridge RV park fees. We will never visit that park again, which is a shame because it really was nice. The only reason I didn't give it a "1" was because they were great on the housekeeping there and it was in a good location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice nestled in the mountains but also close to freeways, restaurants and shopping. A little pricey but overall a great place to stay. The even pick up your garbage from your site. No other park had that service. Folks are friendly and staff is great. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice level concrete pads. Good Wi-Fi and utilities. No cable but the antenna picked up over 30 channels. The people in the office were friendly and they led us to our spot. The roads inside the park are paved but can get tight with a big rig. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Good Sam discounted. Excellent access to area. WiFi is acceptable (sometimes) and better than most parks. People are pleasant and helpful, but it's obvious management has been "abused" by some "campers" so have removed cable and mailing, etc. Third or fourth time here and would stay here again. Although a bit tight, staff guides lead you to site to minimize any tight turns. Very good facilities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Everything about the location of this campground is great....Close to Denver, Golden, Mountains, Boulder, Colorado Springs. Inside the campground comes the disappointment. We were here for two weeks and found road noise, excessive noise from a manufacturing facility right next door..lots of beeping fork lifts. The sites are narrow and when it rains you step right onto mud and grass. The interior roads are crumpling and there are some spots that have potholes and raised asphalt. The sites are so close together we had a small section to put a chair out that was even level. In talking to our neighbors over the two weeks everyone had the same disappointment over the crowded conditions. Not worth the price for the cramped conditions. The owners need to do some serious upgrades to the roads. We stayed in a Motorhome and found leaving our site to be a challenge due to the closeness and overhang on other campers. We will not return nor recommend for any extended stay. We even witnessed a military member with an emergency where the Campground would not refund their four last nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An ok park but not my first choice. We find this park to be way over priced. We stayed here a month and wanted an end spot but they said they didn't have any available. Well all month long they were available. I think they put you where they want you not where you would like to stay. Even though I paid top dollar for this spot, we have a small trailer right next to us with screaming kids and mom and dad screaming at them, and I can't get an end spot. The sites are no more that ten feet apart and the doors meet each other which is not my favorite way to park. Our neighbor on the other side just sat down to use the restroom. Yes it's that close! The wifi is very poor. I never got a good signal right across from the office. I saw a person park there automobile behind there trailer as they were getting ready to pull out and they had a tire in the grass and the manager came over and got all over this guy. The man was very upset and I found it to be very unprofessional. As I said this is not my first choice while staying in Denver but as you will find there is not too much to choose from and I think they are ripping people off. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If your RV is under 25 feet, you are forced into certain spots regardless of cost or availability. Do not accept sites that back on to the factory that works 24/7; you get no peace . Dogs are allowed, but no pens, so if you want your dog outside you must sit with a leader . Overall not a bad place but not great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although pricier then some in the area, the campground has a lot of level sites, great areas to hike right behind the campground. We had to move from another campground because we needed better internet and this campground was far superior. Staff friendly. Would stay here again. We were here for a week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park in good location for visiting Denver or Golden. Tons of great shopping nearby. We didn't use any of the amenities. Only negative was RV pad was very narrow so that stepping out of coach was a drop off to ground. Others had step stools to deal with that. We'd stay there again when in Denver. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean, nice RV park. Staff was very friendly and worked hard to keep park looking nice. We were here during the floods that hit the area and every time the rain let up staff members were out cleaning and tending to flood issues that needed work. Once the rains stopped, it was nice to see the managers out walking the park every night talking to guests and making sure the guests' needs were being handled. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park in a super location! Clean, efficient park with good electric, level sites and big rig friendly. The farther your site is away from the pool and up the hill the better your view will be. We do not use the public restrooms or pool so I cannot comment. Very nice personnel. Lots of hiking & biking in area. Only a few miles from downtown Denver. The only problem is that the park has some road issues that need to be resolved. Asphalt needs repair in a few areas, but it does not effect your experience. We have been here before and will always come back here when stopping in Denver for a few days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, well-maintained campground with easy access to Golden, the road to Boulder, and either roads or, better still, the Light Rail system into Denver. Sites are paved with grass in between. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of these places they call a resort ; it is anything but. Narrow sites, broken concrete pads everywhere, narrow roads, tight sites, noisy, landscaping dreary and poorly taken care of, leveling can be an issue. They have a bad drainage problem here resulting in soggy grass at your site, but they continue to water it into oblivion. There are very few places in Denver to park an RV, so this place is non stop rigs moving in and out all hours of the day and night. Most people take care of their pets, but the usual special people let their dogs potty wherever. Wi-Fi ok, but slow. Cell phone ok. Others utilities ok. Office area and laundry, pool are clean. Quiet hours not observed; stayed here a week and was woke up by many rigs leaving as early as 5am. Wouldn't stay here again unless absolutely necessary. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for a week while visiting Denver. Before we arrived, the campground wanted us to pay a 50%, nonrefundable deposit to book our reservation. This we agreed to. We paid 334.00 for the week. Based on this price, you would think this would be an excellent park. When we arrived, my back stabilizers would barely touch the com in contact with the ground. It was a job to get the coach level. Then we discovered we had no patio, only a grassy area between the cement slabs for the coach. This grassy area was so sloped that you could not put a chair on it comfortably. Then we discovered no cable TV? My fault, should have read a few reviews. Our coach is 40’, and there was barely enough room for the truck. Had to park it sideways. This park is highly overpriced for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has GREAT Wi-Fi!! We stayed 2 weeks in this park and loved the convenient location to Golden and surrounding areas. The park itself is very busy, sites are tight and most are not landscaped well. H3 is sloped and muddy when it rains. There is also a tree on this site that blocked our roof mount satellite, so we had to get out the portable. It was difficult to pull out of this site with our 40' RV due to the sharp angle, tree & shrubs. I would recommend this campground for a short stay on your way somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is everything you hate about a KOA, but it's not one! Lots of rules that don't seem to be abided by or enforced by management. When we arrived they had moved us from requested big rig back in site to pull through. We waited 45 min in a very tight check in area. Because we were right next to rigs already there, we didn't turn on the generator while temps climbed to 90+ degrees. The people in the pull through were still in the pool at checkout time. They tried to move us to a site our 40 ft would have never fit in, but it covered half of narrow road. The sites are very close; you can almost reach out and touch on both sides! The pool is full of screaming kids. Dog park was on a steep hill marked with a sign, beware of rattlesnakes! Rules say no walking between sites, but we saw heads walking beside our coach. Coach next to us left at 6:45 am with quiet time not being over until 8am. Normally I wouldn't care about their rules, but with rigs so close you notice. This older park was built for smaller rigs and is land challenged; it is not meant for bigger rigs they say they can accept. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is very clean and well-staffed. The manager was rather abrupt and not very friendly. The sites are very close together, as it is an older park. The sewer connection on some of the sites are higher than the sewer hose outlet on our RV, and we had to ask to be moved (they were not happy about accommodating us). We've stayed here before, as it is convenient to our RV dealer, although quite expensive. WiFi is great. And they do come around an pick up your trash every morning - never been anyplace else that does that We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here overnight on our way to Durango. The park is aesthetically pleasing with paved roads and paved sites, but also has a few draw backs. The roads are tight and narrow and while I was able to get to my site, it required careful maneuvering of my 40 ft fifth wheel. The pull through site was long enough to remain hooked up during my stay, but the paved pad was not level so I did have to use leveling blocks to get level side to side. One feature I particularly dis-like is the pull though sites are set up with shared common areas so the doors of the campers point toward each other. I prefer not to face my neighbor when I am sitting at my picnic table. While this campground worked well for an overnight stay I would probably not select this park for a longer duration stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access to and from most highways and freeways. Very nice campground with many beautiful sites. Lots a places to safely walk your dog(s). We've stayed there many times and I highly recommend this place. Fun staff and they pick up your garbage each morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very busy park. The check in was hurried and the office staff was unconcerned. The sites are small and the concrete pad is just big enough to accommodate our 40 foot rig but you exit the coach on the spotty grass. The sewer is up hill? No cable but we got dish signal. The pool is small for the size of the park. The work out area is a joke. The laundry is very good. The internet is good. Don't get stuck on the west side of the park on the weekend. The loud out door band and motor cycles across the street is bad. We will find something else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is not in the best of areas but seems to be secure enough. It was close to our relatives so was convenient for us. There was grass and trees, but the trees block the satellite services, and the grassy area by us had not been recently cleaned up. The pool looked beautiful as did the laundry facility, neither of which we used. The putting area is a joke ,but the kids' play area seemed nice enough. There was no exercise area for the dog unless you walked up the slope to the rear. The management was kind to escort us to our site and accommodating as well, but at the price we paid, the parent company must be hoarding the profits. At least it was better than one of its "sister" parks. We would stay at this park again for convenience. All roads and sites were paved, though some were better than others. Sites are relatively close together but trees help block. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 12 days in a 43 foot motorhome. Our first site was down near the club house. I did not like it at all, first off our satellite dish was hitting a tree, second there was a slight gradient when we stepped out of our RV and after a good rain, it turned to mud, Our RV was a mess after two days, Also the sites are very close, too close for my own comfort. I asked to be moved to the top of the hill and we did - or us it was like a whole new camp ground, more space, quite from the road, lots of sun, open sky for our dish. I was very satisfied with our new site B7. And for this reason we stayed for an additional 5 days. The campground is very well kept, very clean. The rest rooms, club house and laundry rooms are excellent. The fitness room, although better than most campgrounds because most have none, could be larger and have more and better equipment. The manager whom I have forgotten his name was also very friendly and helpful, always cheer full as was the men working around the grounds. The ladies in the office - not quite so much. They may need a little hospitality training. For such a nice campground in a metropolitan area, I was surprised they did not have a security gate, although it was not needed. I walked and jogged a lot and there is the Jefferson County trails not far from the campground. Also, the new train is a short walk or drive from here, 2 bucks gets you into Denver with free parking. THIS CAMPGROUND WILL NOT ACCEPT MAIL OR PACKAGES on behalf of its guest under any circumstance, hard and firm, not exceptions. They charge you $15 to wash your RV, just a bit high, but I was happy to be able to to it at all, lots of campgrounds will not let you at all. I would rather be able to pay and do it than not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Way over priced. A bar with live bands immediately across the street with another bar and grill with live music close to another side another side. No cable, no mail service and rules (dogs off leash, other dogs using your space for a bathroom and owners not cleaning up afterwards) are not enforced even when you report them to the staff. Very unfriendly office staff. When you are in the office vestibule the office staffs conversation is amplified and you can very clearly hear their conversations and you get a clear impression of what they think of the customers that are paying their wages. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived here one week after a spring snowstorm that dumped a foot of snow on the Denver area. This park is on a bit of a hillside, tight turns in our 43' RV. Sites are level but hillside runoff drains into your site. On arrival we were originally assigned G1, just behind the registration building. We opened the door and stepped out into a several inches of snow due to shady area. Many other open sites had no snow. Lots of staff around, directing people via golf carts. I recommend they inventory the best spots available, so they make wise site assignments, or shovel them off prior to guest arrivals. We requested to move to G4, up the hill closer to the picnic area. This park had many open sites during our pre-season stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although a bit pricey, this is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in anywhere, and the proximity to Denver, Golden, and the mountains makes the price worth it. Park is in a beautiful setting with great views, the staff is super friendly, and it is easy to get into and out of with paved, level sites. This is the second time we stayed here, and we will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park could be so much better if they would change out the management and give refunds for certain situations. We paid for a month and got called out to work unexpectedly after only being there 2 weeks. Management refused a refund and also wouldn't even offer a credit so we could come back and camp there when we come back into town. On top of that, they were rude and told us that they had to sacrifice to give us monthly spots. The place was only half full during our entire stay. The good: * Good location * Decent sites * Nice walking area up the side of the mountain * Nice laundry area The bad: * Rude management * No refunds under any circumstances * Extra fees for EVERYTHING (dogs, kids, visitors, extra vehicles) * Wi-Fi was worse than dial-up * Very noisy next to highway, industrial business and biker bar The other park in golden was completely full despite being much smaller and in a less convenient location but people prefer to go there because of the friendly staff and better rates. Dakota ridge could be packed year round if they brought in friendlier staff and started treating customers better instead of making them feel like a nuisance. Also, the extra fees for everything made rates so much higher than anywhere else I've stayed and to top it off, they charge taxes on everything which I've never experienced before. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived in the early afternoon. The staff was very professional and helpful. For the second time this trip to Pueblo Colorado I ran my pickup battery down due to the breaking system. The staff was quick to come to the rescue! This park is very clean and neat. We were very grateful for their hospitality. The laundry and bathroom/showers were very nice and clean Thank you We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time staying at Dakota Ridge. The park is immaculate and staff are friendly and helpful. It has blazing fast Wi-Fi, pool, hot tub, clubhouse with kitchen area, dining tables, large-screen TV, book exchange, pool table, and small fitness room. We plan to stay here again next time we're in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The only thing this this campground has going for it is location. It is very convenient to Golden and to I-70. The negatives are many starting with the extremely rude and unprofessional staff. In all of our travels we have never encountered a group like this. We were treated like 2nd class citizens. From check-in to check-out we were treated as if they were doing us a favor. Also, the rate they quote over the phone is very misleading. They charge extra for everything. I questioned the pet charge and was told I was welcome to leave. The sites are OK, and the place is clean. There is no cable TV, and the wi-fi is spotty at best. The pet area is a joke. One staff member told me that if they saw me not cleaning up after my dog, they would fine me $25. I hadn't even taken him out yet! All in all, a terrible choice for more than a one night stop over. I asked for the owner's number and was refused. I heard later that he was just as rude, so it probably would have done no good to complain. We moved from this place to another park. Avoid Dakota Ridge if possible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park. The sites are a bit on the tight side, but acceptable. The roads are all paved, super for walking our dog in her wheelchair and there are nice trails behind for walking our other dog! Everything looked very well maintained and we would certainly stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. Well laid out, clean and tidy with helpful staff. The downside is that in addition to a high nightly rate we were charged $5 per day for our car, and $15 if we wanted to wash our trailer. There was also an additional charge if we wanted friends to stay overnight. The rate quoted was based on their weekly rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The lady at the check in desk and the man taking us to our site was both very nice & polite. The park was clean. Our site had a long concrete slab but was narrow. The utilities were very poorly located. The park is in a good location, but parking is tight and limited. I was picking up a motorcycle trailer and asked about parking it for the night. The manager wanted to charge me $10 to park the motorcycle trailer over night. When I expressed my displeasure and told him that was ridiculous, he told me that if real estate was free, the parking would be free. Because of his attitude and policy, I will not stay here again and would encourage others to be weary. The manager was not customer oriented at all. Very disappointing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent urban RV Park. The new WiFi is much improved over our previous stay. Music and noise from the saloon across Colfax Ave may be annoying to sites at the north end of this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access from the interstate. Quick check in with a reservation. I was guided to the site and all utilities were explained. The site was level front/back and side/side. Directions for departing the park were also given. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Office personnel were very friendly and both types of coffee were offered at no cost. This is a very nice landscaped park and I would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As others have said, you're packed in pretty tight here, but we managed OK with our 43-foot rig. The roads are bumpy and uneven so you must move at a crawl through the park. It's expensive but we were here was to attend a family wedding in Denver and there's not a whole lot to choose from in the Denver area. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area, but this is not a destination park for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park gets rave reviews from many but I don't understand. NOT big rig friendly. Yes we fit but there are only a few (count maybe 5) that will fit 45'. Most interior roads are extremely tight to maneuver. Rigs will drag bottom leaving many of the sites that have almost a ramp upon pulling out. Pets - longest list of restricted dogs I have seen. Sure - nice staff, lead to site, nice pool and if you're lucky - good space between sites (again, VERY few). But - sure is close to Denver, etc. Next time I'll find someplace else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean park but: packed in like sardines. They really have maxed out space utilization and because all spaces are constantly utilized, there is little breathing room. Price is high, but not much else around: location, location, location. Staff is nice. Next time I'll try someplace else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been using this park every year for the past nine years. Usually we stay here several weeks to visit family in the area. Regrettably, the manager was changed two years ago, and the park has deteriorated in several aspects since. That said, I am familiar with all of the Denver area RV parks and still rate this one as the best. Paved roads and concrete or asphalt pads which are mostly pull thru's. New commuter rail station is close and will open soon to provide easy mass transit to downtown Denver. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 2 nights-1 on a weekend. Packed in tight, but back from the road so fairly quiet. No satellite access from our site and poor Wi-Fi. Our feeling was that the park facilities are over-run on the weekends and not-too-bad weekdays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in a Pop up with a front deck for ATVs. We loved this park! The pads were nice level concrete, sites had green grass, the pool was the best one we have seen in a park, the staff was very friendly and the park was nicely paved. We did some touristy stuff like the Dinosaur Walk, Mother Cabrini shrine, Buffalo Bill's grave and wildlife overlook (all of which were easy enough to get to from the park). Would have rated it higher, but the sites were a little close together for my tastes and there were not much in the way of trees for shade. Some sites had nice trees, but the ones in the back of the park did not. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
When we made our 3-week reservation long in advance, we requested a back-in site. We were given the choice of either being on the side next to a 24-hour factory or across the road from a bar. Not wanting 24-hour noise, we opted for the bar side. It was more than a bar - it was a biker bar with lots of boys who needed to get their Harleys to max speed in as short a time as possible. Plus, the road we were on is busy US 40 with lots of heavy traffic. Park owners can't fix the location. I would recommend not taking a back-in site. Pull throughs have some isolation from the noise but in many cases are very narrow. Sites are generally level with some broken and heaved paved sites. We had a couple of nice trees to cut the record heat. Water was good. Wi-fi was generally good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Dakota Ridge in Golden, CO may be the nicest campground in the immediate Denver area but it is also the most expensive. It is not a destination park. That said, you get what you pay for. The paved site we occupied for four days was on the side of a hill but it presented no leveling challenge and the in park wi-fi was quite good in our rig. The check-in process was smooth and we were escorted to our site by a camp worker. Camping World is about a mile away from the campground. The electrical (50 amp) service was good along with the just right water pressure. They offer a good dog walk area along with “doggie bags” and scoops. On weekends there is music ( if you can call it that ) on a too loud scale from a nearby bar but during the week things are quiet. They offer a small pool that would be nice to have on their 100 degree days. They offer AAA and Good Sam discounts and we would consider this park in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have rated this park higher if not for their attitude on the first day, that the Wi-Fi would not connect to the internet was not their problem. It was their problem and was eventually fixed. Tell customers the truth right up front. Otherwise, the park was fine. Tight spaces and turns. Nice shade trees. Would probably stay here again if in the area. Pricey. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All the amenities are tip top as is the staff. They do nitpick extra charges on you. There is no dog run. WiFi is good. We are located at the furthest point from the office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Even though we reserved our reservations way in advanmce, we had much difficulty when checking in and the workers canceling one of the reservations in our party. The sights were paved, level (some had shade), and not spacious. Many rabbits in the park which kept our dogs entertained. No cable TV for the high price and Wi-Fi was sparse. Close distance to Golden and Coors brewing company which is well worth checking out and free of cost for parking, tastings and a great tour. Dog friendly, no dog park however great walking trails from park (with lots of "beware rattlesnakes" signs, however none encountered). Restrooms were excellent. Small work out facility which was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park - second time here. Got a small space because I called late for Memorial day weekend, but it fits with a shoehorn. I appreciate they offered spot to us or we would have been way out of desired area. Clean and neat and very good sign and escort employees. Super sharp guiding our back into site with good common sense. About 1 mile from Camping World. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with plenty of room for our unit and truck. There are many nice amenities. Although the park is in-town, the noise level is minimal. Our site was level but there was not a pad by our camper door. It was just a little gravel and grass. It was raining so we had to puddle jump. There is only one bathroom facility (very very clean) so it could be quite a hike for campers in further away sites. We stayed one night as we were just passing through. I feel the rate was a little high but considering the area it probably is reasonable. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean, quiet, well kept park with amenities that include a pool, hot tub, great laundry room, clubhouse, etc. Staff is friendly and efficient. They pick up your trash from your curbside. VERY dog friendly (no vicious dogs or breeds) and an incredibly large off leash area up the small hill for dogs to run. Trails close by. Easy in/out, easy access to anything you need in town. There is a bar close by and one Saturday night (we were here 2 weeks) the band was VERY loud but over with by 10. We'd stay here again. There are many outdoor things to do around here, and even some hiking and biking right from the park. There are longer term residents, but they don't 'look' like it. Very well kept park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were there visiting our son at school in Lakewood. There are very few campgrounds in the area to choose from, but Dakota Ridge was lovely. Pretty central to Denver and the western mountains for climbing and hiking. Grounds were pretty and clean. Nice hot tub after a day skiing. Office staff friendly. Planning on staying here again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We could practically move here permanently, that's how great this place is. Friendly staff, immaculate grounds and facilities, and easy access to Golden and Denver make this a park you'll want to check into for more than one night. The pool wasn't open yet for the season, but the clubhouse was open and enticing with several nice games tables and a small but good fitness room. The showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities looked new and were very well maintained and clean. We didn't even have to haul our trash to the dumpster - just put it at the edge of our site and it was picked up daily. Even the Wi-Fi, a common complaint of mine, was reliable. We're not TV watchers, but were told that an antenna on our motorhome would pick up about 30 channels. Our two nights here were much too short and we look forward to returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The showers and bathrooms are very clean, but sometimes I had a problem getting hot water while showering. I had to try 3 showers until I found a hot one. It is something about the knobs. They have one knob to adjust both the hot and cold water. I told the staff about it and was told that you definitely had to find the sweet spot. Turning it all the way to hot is often not as hot as backing it off a little on two of the showers. This should be fixed. The lounge and kitchen area are extremely nice and they also have a nice book and DVD lending area. The lounge has cable but the sites do not. I have a $12 HD antennae that I mount on my roof. It was pulling in about 30 channels. I only used it for football games and was never unable to find the game I was looking for. They also have a great laundry room. The pool is closed during the winter but they kept the hot tub open the whole time I was here. I would not really call the park a resort because there is really nothing to do there, but it is close to everywhere. I loved driving to downtown Golden and walking on the river walk. It runs along Clear creek which feeds the Coors plant which you can see during your walk. My Florida dog took his first swim in that creek so if you find a short black hair in your Coors, we apologize. Another fun thing about the park is the rabbits. There are coyotes in the hills behind the park, so the park is a refuge for a lot of rabbits. I was walking my dog and thinking about coyotes one night and all of a sudden, about 10 of them started howling from about 100 yards away. My fearless dog wanted to go check them out but we just sat and listened. It was really nice. I liked being in the foothills of the Rockies. I felt protected. Within 20 miles west, the temp drops drastically. I definitely recommend taking a day trip west. I went about 60 miles one day and saw some wonderful sights. I was there in October and November and the temps did get cold (-7 one night) and we had some beautiful snow. On snow days it would be overcast but the next day the sun would come out and it was wonderful. It was 20 degrees one day after a snow and I was comfortable in a t-shirt. The sun up there is amazing. Snow often melts during the day and then freezes on the park's roads at night, so black ice is a real problem at night when walking a dog. I bought a pair of $15 crampons at a sporting goods store which I would recommend to anyone who will be walking on the park's roads at night. If you do not get them, I almost guarantee that you will slip and fall. I must stress how nice and accommodating the staff are. They were a real joy to work with and I enjoyed talking with them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is in a good location for visiting the area. Sites were adequate, but no cable TV available. Nearby bar was very loud and continued well into the night with loud music. Make sure you know exactly how many nights you want to stay because they will not refund if you prepay and then have to depart early. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay here every time we pass through the Denver area - it is one of our favorites. It is very clean and well kept, with fairly level concrete pads. Good Wi-Fi, and they even have a telephone modem available for doing banking and such. Very friendly staff, and on-site newspapers. There is a biker bar across the street from the park's entrance, so if noise is not your cup of tea, ask for a quiet site. We did, and we got one on the back which was very quiet. Pull-through sites are side-by-side, and not very large. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicest RV park in the Denver area. Side by side hookups so you are close to your neighbor on one side. Some sites where the sewer connection is uphill. Some sites are level, others are not. I have never understood how you can pour a concrete pad and "not" make it level. Nice amenities with pool, hot tub, laundry, exercise room. Extra charge for 50 amp seemed unreasonable. Pads are narrow and some with rather severe drop offs which can damage your tires if you aren't careful pulling in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately, the Boulder area doesn't have much in the way of RV parks so it's really about picking the lesser of all evils. This is a very clean park neat to Golden but LOTS of rules = extra charges = expensive. The "dog walk" is pretty pathetic too but they do have some grass next to most sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with paved roads and level concrete pads. There are sites for the largest DPs. It is dog friendly with 2 dog walks plus a trail around their "mountain". We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was immaculate. My husband and I felt comfortable there; campground was tucked away and felt safe/secure. Amenities were abundant- a pool, small exercise area/gym, jacuzzi. Negatives-Staff was professional but not particularly friendly. Sites were close together and a bit difficult to manuver into. Given the additional pet fee should have had a better area designated- area was large enough but not enclosed and sloped- felt like I was walking my dogs in a drainage ditch. Did have disposal bags and trash bin available. Given the cost cable TV should have been available. However, only other RV park in Golden is the city park- (drove by)- was nice but very open, downtown and security was questionable. Therefore would choose Dakota Ridge again. Loved Golden- great downtown area- immaculate with a nice walk along Clear Creek, many shops and restaurants; also enjoyed a great tour at the Coors plant. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Understand the rate for us. We have 4 kids and a lab/shepherd mix. Normal seasonal rates are in the 40's. Incredible sites. Most are concrete, level, and long enough to have my 40' trailer and Suburban on the pad! The kids absolutely loved the pool, and we got good use of the exercise room. (They have those new water resistance rowing and cycling machines and a universal that were all in great shape.) The park location is great. Easy access to Boulder, Idaho Springs and I-70, Golden, and Wheat Ridge. There is a mall about a mile away, and everything just seemed close, without being right next door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent 11 nights at Dakota Ridge. Nothing not to love about this place. It really has everything you need and it's close to all kinds of shopping and restaurants. Staff if very friendly and accommodating. Each site has a cement slab, grass, a table and some sites have shade trees. Sadly our site was in full sun and it was the hottest August on record. The pool is nice, the laundry room is big and clean, there is a pool table, library and lounge area. The grounds are spotless. As mentioned in many other reviews the sites are close together, but we didn't find it to be a reason not to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
So far a very nice park. Lots of shade and quiet. Nice pool especially when kids aren't in it. The area is confusing and not a great deal of things to do close by. Lots of freeway on/off ramps. Very clean and well maintained. Would give it higher marks if it had cable and wasn't so expensive. Rate reflects $900 mo. fee. Would have stayed a couple of months if not for the rate. Good place though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with good paved roads, level cement site. Friendly helpful staff. Good Wi-Fi, clean small pool. A little pricey, but we would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here one night passing through the area. Very nice park! Friendly staff, manicured sites, very clean and large restroom/shower area. A lot of amenities. Paved streets and some shade. Would definitely stay here again. Cons: weak Wi-Fi--tried to access more than once with no luck; and, a little pricey. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground with lots of green grass, nice level pads, clean buildings and pool. The freeways converge in this area so be careful to read instructions on how to get to the campground, but the noise level is minimal once you get there. The pull-through sites are much nicer than the back-in spots around the edges - much bigger grassy area between units. I would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RV'er beware! This is a very expensive place to stay and not worth the money. The only advantage they have at this park is they are 20 minutes from Downtown Denver. They know that so they take advantage of their location and charge more than they should for this park. If you have pets, specifically dogs, open your wallet because they will charge you $25.00 per dog. Since they charge so much per dog you would think that there would be an adequate dog park or dog run. They provide a drainage ditch for their dog walk. It is unclean and full of disease. My dogs became very ill along with other dogs that stayed in the park. We spoke to several people and they confirmed the same illness that our dogs came down with. We had to take our dogs to the vet 3 times resulting in a $600 bill just to get them well. Our dogs have never been this sick in their lives and they are 7 years old. We left the park, moved to another park and they have been healthy. We will never expose our dogs to this park again. If you care about your animals stay clear of this nasty park. Also do not show up mid month especially when their rates change. They will charge the higher amount regardless of what their staff member tells you about what you will be charged and their manager there has no people skills or customer service quality whatsoever, she is confrontational and condescending. How does someone like that have a job in this job market? They do not honor their rates stated in their web site either. All the parks that we have been to pro-rated their rates when their rates change based on when you arrived or leave. We have been across the country for a full year in 2011 and we feel this park and its management have ripped us off. In addition, the park has RV'ers facing each other as opposed to back to back. We are social people and make friends where ever we go, but not everyone is social or friendly. It can be awkward if you get a neighbor who is not friendly. There is no privacy. Again we feel this was a cheap way to develop the park. We will never stay at this park again. We would not recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay for a few days. Friendly stuff. The pull through are long and wide with some of them are concrete base. They have a hot tub (Did not work when we were there. My 2nd stay and will come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here 2 nights while visiting Denver. Clean, well cared for park. Friendly staff. Great laundry facilities. Large showers. Some road noise. Had to pay $5 extra per night for over 2 people. Gets expensive for a family of 4. Store is a little lacking. Free coffee, tea and cocoa during office hours. Office hours are only 9am to 6pm. Nice, level sites. Unfortunately, our site faced the door of the site next to us and they were smokers so we didn't use our picnic table. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park, and with it being completely full during our visit, we are not surprised. First the positives: The pool was SPOTLESS and clean as was the hot tub, and we enjoyed that the hot tub had exclusions for the "under 14" crowd. They have a very nice indoor kitchen area with full fireplace with TV and nice leather couches and chairs with gaming/food tables. In this same area, are a book exchange, games, nice pool table, and a very nice workout room. The check in was busy, but there were several very friendly helpers in golf carts to escort you to your spot. All sites are concrete and very level which we appreciate. They also have a really cool little nature trail that goes up their "mountain" (really a rocky outcropping), and it's lit up at night The negatives are that the PULL THROUGH sites are set up so that you park door to door, but there is two picnic tables are set up so you don't have to share. There seems plenty of room between the units. Another negative is that there is no cable TV, but we were able to receive 37 local channels from Denver. There is also a "biker bar" across the street, and it didn't seem too annoying, but they did play the outdoor speakers loud during the daytime. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Probably the best park with convenient access to Denver. This isn't a rural area so traffic and urban noise exists. The physical facilities and staff are excellent. Wi-Fi works but I would rate it very poor lacking bandwidth most of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RV's park door-side to door-side! My neighbor's door was 12' across from my door. My opposite side windows were 4' from mine. NO PRIVACY! NO CABLE! 1 hour of rain left 3" puddle outside my door for 2 days! Dog walk on side of hill! East side sites are next to industrial park that starts making loud noise @ 6:00 AM. Advertising for park is miss-leading. $300 discounted (??!!) weekly rate is very high. We are full-timers and this is the most expensive park we've stayed in with very minimum amenities. We do not recommend this park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great RV Resort. Nice people and very nice sites. Would recommend 100%. Lots of nice sites with shade, and level parking. Very nice swimming pool, laundry facility and restrooms/showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our 3rd summer camping here. We have spent at least 2 months every summer. One of the best in Colorado. Small roads but excellent setup. Convenient to Denver and suburbs or I-70/I-25. Courteous staff and very nice facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park in Golden, only 10 minutes away from Lakewood where we had some business. ATT very good, free wifi good. Lots of free extras like trash pick up and propane pick up from your site. Staff very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Its a very convenient distance to Denver for anyone working in the area temporarily. We stayed for about a week, its a very pleasant environment, nice spaces and beautiful scenery. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 5 days here while in Denver. When we arrived the staff was friendly and kind. We were guided to our site and the staff member helped us back into the site. We were placed on the edge near the dog walk area which provided easy access for taking the dogs out. The park is located near C-470 highway and Colfax Avenue, which are both busy. However, our site was perfectly situated to receive minimal noise. This location is actually pretty central to the Denver metro area. There is easy access to points north, west, east and south. The club house was updated and clean. The laundry was very clean as were the bathrooms. The hot tub was still open and made for a nice treat to relax. For the active types, this park is very close to Green Mountain, Matthew Winters Park and Apex Park. All of which offer some good hiking and mountain biking. Be advised however, that Apex Park can be very busy on the weekend. It is possible to ride your road bike from the park and be on the C-470 bike path in a couple miles. This is definitely one of the better parks we've stayed in and will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All roads in park are asphalt and sites are cement. Sites at top and bottom of hill are level. The others sites are not. You will see wheels off the ground and blocks under one side or the other everyplace. Site has 30/50 amps, water, sewer, and a table. 50 amps cost you $3 more per day. The hookups on a number of sites are in the wrong place and hard to hook up to. The pull thru sites are side by side hookups but hookups are in better placement. The back in sites are to short for most large motorhomes. You have tons of noise here. On west side you have the motorcycles bar and a sports bar with loud music to enjoy. On the east side you have a couple of business with tow motors and more noise. Now add the road noise from Colfax Ave. plus Hwy 470 and I-70 and it never stops. Wi-Fi was good most of the time but as you are working the system would stop working but in time will come back up. TV channels over the air are no problem. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Playground equipment for the kids. The office and pool were nice but we did not use anything here. One big problem was the small sites that office will try to pack you into. At the time we come in park had lots of sites that were nice large pull thru, but we were told only two sites were open take it or leave it. We were in park a number of days and the open sites never had an RV unit on them. I also saw a number of Class A's drive up to the so called open sites, get out to look at them, and then drove out of the park. Lost business. Poor way to run a park. Price was on Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here many times because it is a nice RV park close to Denver. I feel they are ready to make some capital improvements. The fitness room equipment is old. The sites are too close on one side. They could save water by redesigning the lawns at the sites plus make them more private. Asphalt pads are a bad idea with the temperatures Denver gets. Hey owners: let's see some changes and improvements! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Good Sam discount with an extra charge for a dog and 50 amp. This campground is very busy! We had to move once during our two week stay to accommodate a site-specific reservation although the policy on the website states you are unable to choose your sites. There are few back-in sites for bigger rigs. The interior pull-through sites are "buddy" sites, which means you share a lawn with another camper, (i.e. two picnic tables, etc.). On the other side, you are very close to the next rig. The park is clean and well maintained. The park is loaded with rabbits, and nearly every evening we smelled skunk. Trash is picked up at your site between 8 and 10 a.m. The pool, restrooms, laundry and clubhouse were very nice. I was disappointed the fitness room had no treadmill. We found it pricey considering the tight sites and no cable. We would probably look for something less expensive next time, but would stay again if necessary. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little road noise in the front, fine on the hill. Awesome sites and friendly staff. Clean restroom and large shower stalls with (yes) pressure. Lots of walk areas for pets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My wife and I purchased our first travel trailer and immediately took it to this RV park for a one night shake down. The office staff helped make sure I got a space I could back into and the folks on both sides of my space helped as well. The site was well shaded and quiet. Overall a great experience. This is a good place to choose if you are going to be in Denver and don't want to be in the city but still close by. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We would give it a 10 if not for the road noise. They do not have cable and you probably will have to level your rig. They do have a fitness room. The campground is convenient to everything in and around Denver. Golden is a very nice town to visit. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park. Bathrooms are some of the cleanest we've seen anywhere. Sites are fairly level and only required minimal spacing on one side. Concrete pads with rock edges. We did notice some street noise. Across the street is also a bar that held a couple of outside parties with loud motorcycles. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. We liked the location. It is central to shopping and easy freeway drive to other points of interest. We liked the grass area next to our coach, but be prepared for the watering that takes place each night. The dog run is adequate for small dogs and there is a trail leading out of the camp ground that can be used for larger dogs. The down side for this park is the sites are close together and we experienced numerous fellow campers walking through our site to get to the pool/shower area. Also the Wi-Fi was very slow and continuously dropped the Internet. In our opinion this is the best park in the area if you want to be close to the Denver area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here as closest park to family and our route out of town next morning. Very close sites even for our 30 ft Class C. It looked to be very challenging for big rigs/tows. However, staff available to help us back in and they could not have been more helpful. AAA+ facilities. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was clean and well kept. The shower and restrooms were very nice. Pool area and club house were all up to date. My issues were with the road noise (next to and up the street from a Harley dealership and a biker friendly bar) and the unlevelness of our site. It was a pull through but was still unlevel. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here over the Memorial day weekend and thought it was a nice park. Close to Red Rocks, Golden, and Morrison. Park is clean and well kept with a lot of larger and newer rigs. We camped in a 37' 5th wheel and even with a paved pad we couldn't quite get level. I could have used leveling blocks but that would have required hooking back up to the truck which I didn't want to do. There is no cable TV although we were able to get quite a few of the Denver channels as a lot of the TV transmission towers are right behind the park on Lookout mountain. The park is surprisingly quiet even though it is near the I-70 and E-470 highways. There is a biker bar across the street but we didn't hear the noise in the campground although you can hear the bikes come and go. There is a sports bar just up the road but we didn't stop there. Wi-Fi was worthless any time I tried it so I gave up. There was a small patch of grass between campers but it was more like a patch of weeds. Sure wouldn't take much to make this a nice area. No campfires were allowed although we did cook on our charcoal grill. There were a lot of families, kids and dogs in the park so it seemed busy outside, and with no campfires we just stayed in our RV evenings. Cost was a little high but the park seemed full so I guess it is working for them. Keep in mind it is a park at the edge of the Denver metro area if you decide to stay here, it is not a real camping experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. It gets bonus points from us for having paved roads and pads. Sites were plenty large to pull thru without unhooking, although they weren't real level. We had to use leveling blocks. Location is very convenient to Golden and Denver (Hwy 6 goes directly downtown in about 20 minutes). The facilities were spotless. Hookups were solid. The Wi-Fi was bandwidth dependent and tended to die in the evening when everybody was using it. The park sits against a rocky hillside that is illuminated at night and is strikingly beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice paved sites. The park management has discontinued cable TV service so it is satellite or antenna service only (if satellite, be careful of trees). Streets and sites are all paved but very narrow making it a bit tight for big rigs. Management very cordial and helpful. All facilities are kept very neat and clean. This is one of the nicer parks in the greater Denver area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice facilities and RV sites. The owner is disputing with the cable company so we had over the air TV only. The hot tub was out of service for the winter. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice office, game room, store/gift shop, LPG, and laundry was reasonably prices. We felt that it was overpriced in comparison to other parks. Even though we stayed a week we only received a 10% Good Sam discount. Most other parks give you a day free if you stay a week. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are not many choices of parks for big rigs in the Golden area. Dakota Ridge was nice, sites were "buddy" sites with front doors of the rigs facing, but we did not mind that. There is grass between sites, not as nice as the immaculate landscaping they advertise but there is grass. Our site was on a hill and a large section of the grass was dead and our picnic table had no flat area to sit so we could not use it. Our site was in a quiet area of the park and we were happy with the location. My problem with this park is they charge extra for everything, $3 per night for 50 amps, $2 for cable and $1 each for dogs. We paid for the 50 amps and the fee for each of our three dogs. There is nowhere to exercise or potty the dogs. They offered a small area on the side of a hill with some stone down as a "dog walk" and another strip of mostly dirt on the other side of the park. There are signs everywhere to keep off the grass or don't walk your dog here. So, it was very expensive for what you get. I doubt I would return there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very busy park. We had previously seen it several times, although this was the first time camping. Most of the sites were full, lots of people, kids, dogs etc. which is the way I think an RV park should be. The pool is nice, the people in the office were nice. However, the office closes at 5:00 P.M., a very early time. The roads through the park are narrow and some of the turns difficult with a 45" motorhome with trailer. They have several spots for dropping a trailer (extra charge) but reserve ahead. Because it had rained a lot before we got there, a lot of the sites were pretty wet; ours was right by the door (of course there!) Previous reviewers mention noise, and if your site is right near the entrance, I'm sure it is noisy. But it is in an urban area, so we expected noise. If we were to be in the area again, we probably would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What we like are the people who work in the office and the location. The biggest complaint we have is that this place is so expensive and they charge for so many things that other parks don't. Besides the nightly space rental, they charge a daily rate for an extra vehicle (even if one is paying a monthly rate for the space) which is our trailer parked in an overflow space. The daily rate is for 2 people. Any child over 4 is charged $5.00/day extra. With their monthly rate, we pay for electricity which we expect. But when we are on a daily rate, we pay $3.00/day for 50 amp services that we need, so we're still paying for electricity. We had to drive our motor home sans the trailer to FL for a month for family issues, but we would be returning to this park so of course we had to pay for the month we weren't here because if we didn't they would not let us pay just to leave our trailer here in an overflow parking space without a motor home in a space. We offered to let the park rent out our space so somebody else could pay the space rent for the month but they refused, which made no sense at all to us. If there was another park in this area, we would stay there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Why would anyone be assigned a site with Colfax Avenue directly behind them? If you pass this way be warned. This is a busy, noisy street! The biker bar directly behind our RV site had music playing all night long and the people and partying in the parking lot could be heard with windows closed. The park was clean and staff nice, but they need to consider travelers trying to get a good night's rest before traveling in the morning. The charges were expensive for a sleepless night! We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Road construction made it a little difficult to get to but not too bad. There is NO cable TV anymore. The Wifi was good. Sites are narrow but I had no problem getting in and out with my trailer behind my Morothome. Office hours of 9-5 are a little arrogant for an RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well-kept campground which would like to be an RV resort. Unfortunately its location is in Golden (high rent district) but its neighbors are low rent, 7-11, biker bar, etc. Easy to get to good shopping and restaurants. Very good and efficient welcome. Excellent rec room and exercise room. Rather noisy so could not sleep with windows open. Also sites are small. Rather high priced, but then it is Golden. We camped here in a Motorhome.
VERY nice park. The only drawback is the pricing. $600.00 per month in the off season and $900.00 during the summer. You won't get a break even if you are there for a year or more, which I was. Park is very clean and the the people take care of whatever you need. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is not what it is advertised to be. It is on a busy street with no view. That said, the staff was very friendly and we were escorted into our site. The restroom/showers were clean and air conditioned. The park was clean and well maintained. We were in site A1 which was a back in site (they charge more for a pull thru) which was next to the street. We enjoyed the live band from the biker bar across the street and especially enjoyed the noise of the loud pipes as the bikers roared off into the sunset (or night). The music did stop at a reasonable hour, but the traffic noise did not. If you want to pay $40.00 a night for a tight space in a clean park this is the place for you. We will not return to this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites don't give you a lot of extra space, and we are experiencing moderate to heavy noise from the road over the fence. The welcome was friendly, though, including escort to our site; the pool and lounge area look very nice and they offer some free refreshments. Having just come from rural, alcohol-free (or nearly) Utah, we enjoyed having restaurants and shopping near here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been traveling for 5 weeks and this is, by far, the worst experience we have had. As our satellite dish is not working, we wanted to make sure we had cable. Unfortunately, the cable at Dakota Ridge is ghosty and snowy. The ad in Trailer Life and/or Woodal's indicates a view of mountains and city lights. When, in fact, it is located in an industrial area with the sounds of the 70 freeway and no view whatsoever! The sites are extremely tight for big rigs and sloped so egregiously that even our levelers won't help so, of course, our shower will not drain. We had booked our stay here for a week thinking it would be a nice hub to experience Colorado. As it is absolutely nothing as described in their ad after 3 days we inquired as to a refund if we left early. To our dismay there are no refunds!!! Once they get you in here, you're out of luck. Please, do not be swayed by the ad touting views and big rig friendly - they're not. After all the years of traveling in RVs this is the first time I have been compelled to write a review. Hopefully, my experience can save other travelers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big clean RV park. Was told when booking we would have a pull thru, we ended up with a very small tight back-in. This place is advertised to have level concrete pads. We have a very uneven asphalt pad. Supposed to have cable, our site does not have a hook-up for cable. Free Wi-Fi for those that sit in a particular direction with the wind blowing the right direction. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We find this park a great option for a one or two night stay in Denver (Golden) when we are passing through. The facilities are good and clean. The sites are small and not shaded but as I said for a night or two we find it more than acceptable. If we wanted to stay in the Denver area longer we would probable find something a little farther out and up in the mountains. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Although I agree with the comments about the excessive charges and the noisy biker bar and factory, I found excellent positives about this campground that will keep bringing us back. No other campground we have ever stayed at have the following options and, to us, these are worth the extra charges: 1. You can reserve a specific campsite if you have been in one you like, or you if you found one that you would rather be in the next time. 2. If you pay for a specific number of days and leave earlier than you had planned, they will give you a credit of all days not used on your next visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Modern,clean and friendly but expensive. Base price does not include cable, pets, 50amps. Close to highways plus convenient to downtown Denver (Coors and Investco Field.) Would stay again because of the location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is pretty nice if you don't get parked in back by the boiler factory, or whatever it is they noisily do there. The people are nice. The thing that detracts is the nickel/dime aspect of extra $ for pets, cable, 50 amp, etc. The good outweighs the bad, though. All the hookups function well and the cable list is lengthy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The spaces are extremely narrow and many require blocking of front and rear wheels. The cable TV service is spotty. Do not pay for this service unless you know your particular site works. Children are supposed to be monitored, however, many parents/grandparents do not know what this means. Watch out for children traffic. Park is convenient to shopping and roads leading out of Denver to the mountains but is over priced due to a captive market. There are few RV parks in the Denver proper area. Management is helpful but you need to constantly check your reservations as there are many bookkeeping errors made. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff at Dakota Ridge make this park! I have never stayed at an RV park where they pick up your bagged garbage daily! Very well cared for and nice amenities. Every staff member I had contact with were polite and helpful. They also sell the best cinnamon rolls in the office daily. It is over priced though considering the location. There is a "biker" bar across the street that is very loud, and the motorcycles without mufflers are deafening. The neighborhood is also industrial. There were also additional costs that are not mentioned when making a reservation, cable, 50amp, daily per pet fee, and costly Wi-Fi. I would, however, stay there again because of the staff and cinnamon rolls. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a first rate urban park. The only reason we didn't rate it a "10" is that some of the sites are quite close together. That was not true in our case, however, because we had a pull-thru at the end of a row and had plenty of space on either side. The paved roads help keep the park quiet. The staff is extra friendly and efficient. Someone leads you to your site. Although we didn't use the pool or laundry, they appeared to be very clean. In fact, everything, including the landscaping, is very well maintained. There is a very nice lounge area with fireplace in the office building. We used our own Internet broadband card so cannot comment on the WiFi. We also didn't use the Cable TV. There was good local reception with our antenna. Although the park is located on a fairly busy highway during the day, it was pretty quiet at night. Relative to what we have paid at much less desirable parks, we felt the $38.00 nightly rate we paid to be reasonable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The amenities in this park are among the finest I have seen. The RV sites are the worst I have seen in 31 years of camping. The roads are too narrow, the sites are too narrow. You are slammed up against your neighbor with side by side hook-ups and then share your "front yard" with your other neighbor. He gets the front half, you get the back half. This place makes KOA (keep on adding) look like a piker! You pay extra for kids, pets, 50 amps, cable, wi-fi. The daily charge certainly isn't worth it when you have to pay all those other charges. We didn't have kids, pets or use cable but the 50 amp and wi-fi cost us additional. The back-in sites around the perimeter are better spaced but they are short and you can have your choice of backing up to a factory or a biker bar! This is about the "only game in town" so they charge what the market will bear. Personally, I'd camp in Colorado Springs and drive to Denver next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great urban park with great amenities. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park is very clean and well maintained. We parked on cement with nice grass beside it. The pool and hot tub were appreciated. Some other posts complained about noise - I called ahead and they assured me I was parked near the middle of the park and we had no problem with noise. We did have to pay $4 a night for each grandchild that stayed with us. I feel sorry for parents who are having to pay an extra fee for children. It should be included in the rate. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here a couple of times for multiple days and enjoyed our stay each time! The sites could be more level but were not, by far, the worst I have seen! The only big problem that I noticed was with the campers themselves not being courteous enough to park their extra vehicles in the overflow parking areas. The people camping next to us had to be told multiple times to move their car and truck so others could move in and out! The showers and restrooms were near perfect! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The facilities as far as restrooms and laundry, pool and rec are nice, beyond that this campground was the worst we have experienced in a month on the road. We were in a site along the back row that looked down on a factory back full of junk and they worked from 6am till 9 or 10 at night with a forklift beeping all day and loud steel dropping. The back door of our rv was a few inches from a steep hill and if you tripped you would roll down into the factory. The mtc. people brought over a wooden platform to put under our rear steps so no one would fall but it in itself was dangerous. Not even a fence to close off the rear of the park so we looked at oil drums, and piles of junk. We would never go back here again, we spent 3days as we visited friends in the area. They charged us the same rate for this substandard spot as the rigs up near the office that were in decent spots. The area is a little seedy as well and there is no security. Very disappointing, the only reason we give it a 2 is the bathrooms are nice although far from our site. 20M was the # so beware. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park with paved interior roads and paved RV sites. Great pool, hot tub and laundry. Convenient location to attractions. The park was very expensive. Almost an insult. The counter staff was rude and unfriendly. The park had a high noise level due to being located on a busy street and also the rear of park was next to a irrigation pipe manufacturer who started their electric saws each morning at 6:30AM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park. No room to park truck at site. Very small and hard to hit sites. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were not informed our view would be a factory out back. Grounds were well kept and clean. The exercise room had broken equipment. Wifi did not work at our site. We had to go to the office area to get signal. Not a bad site if you want to be near Denver. Not the most relaxing place to enjoy a great view and quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I give this place a 6 on a scale of 10. I'm being generous as I think this spot is way overpriced. We were here for an extended stay and did not get a lower rate. Centrally located and a pleasant staff. But maybe we'll look for another spot next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When you check in be ready to legally sign away all of your rights and the rights of your entire family when on this property. It goes down hill from there.Semi's where idling next to our campsite at the steel factory next door (about 20 feet from our site). Then the factory was making noise until 8:30pm , then the biker bar kept us up until 1:30 A.M.. The bathrooms are clean. The security at the park is there to protect the park. Anyone can come and steal stuff, since there is no gate. The pool is secured by a 6 foot gate, security cameras and electric pool cover at night. This gives me the feeling that they have had problems, and the staff keeps repeating "This is a Metropolitan area" when asked about the noise level.This is the worst camping experience I have ever had. The cost was $50 for a family of 4. I will never stay here again and I will not recommend anyone ever stay here. The staff should disclose the problems at time of reservations, I you are still considering this park, ask the staff about the noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest parks in the Denver area and it is always full in high-season. We called 2 months ahead for our visit in June – good thing, there were absolutely no sites available; plan ahead for this one. The well-treed sites are separated by well-kept, very wide lawns. The streets are paved and most of the sites are now cement. They were previously asphalt and it seems that they’re being upgraded a bit at a time. The park provides an escort to the side and parking assist if needed. The park provides garbage pick-up at the site. Nice pool, office, laundry & shower – all very clean. All day coffee & hot chocolate in the office/meeting room. Friendly staff. Good voltage & high water pressure – be sure to use a regulator. Propane available on site & the office will accept mail for visitors. Good Sam discount available as well as an additional discount available from one of the three other sister parks: Spruce Lake, Elk Meadow, & Rocky Mountain RV. Now the bad news. The sites are back-to-back, most share a utility post. The entry doors of side-by-side units face each other and share the lawn expanse – each with its own picnic table. We stayed for a week and fortunately had quiet, responsible neighbors – not so in some cases, which I imagine can make for a very unpleasant stay. Expensive rate and they have ala carte add-ons: $3 a day for cable, $2 a day for cable, instant-on phone $2 a day, extra person $4, $1 for each dog a day and so forth. They restrict certain dog breeds (Rottweiler, Akita, Staffordshire Terriers, Pit Bull & Doberman). The older, asphalt sites have cracked off and crumbled corners, making leveling difficult. The pads are fairly narrow, making things a bit tight on the driver’s side of things. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I've stayed here a few times and although pricey I'll likely use it every time I come to the area. Downtown Denver is a quick 10 miles east if you are going to a game or Elitch Gardens. The park is nice and clean, but the pads are narrow and some sites are unlevel. I guess those things aren't bad enough to make me look elsewhere. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with my cable. I called the office, within minutes two workers showed up with a TV and tested my connection. Turns out my connector was bad. They were very helpful. Oh and they escort you to your site, which is very nice, after trying to read maps and finding sites at other places. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall this is a decent, albeit somewhat over-priced campground. You pay a premium for the proximity to Denver. Roads are narrow and sites are a bit cramped. Concrete pads are not level and are too narrow. If noise bothers you, then beware. The biker bar across the street is unbelievably loud. Traffic noise simmered down at night but was significant during the day. Sites on the east side of the park are more quiet, being further from the bar, but they also are closer to I-70. Restrooms are the best I have ever seen. WiFi is fine but very expensive. The park was clean and their mountain was small but fun to climb. Staff is friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice park built on a hill. The sites look level, but being on a hill, they slope downward and require several blocks under one side to level side to side. Roads are narrow, but lots of big rigs were there, so they manage to get around. Wifi is not free, cable costs $2 extra a night. My pull through in row K had a very narrow pad and my stairs opened up off the pad and required a large step down to the sloping grass. Staff was very friendly and they have free coffee and hot chocolate. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice, well-run and well-located RV park. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restrooms/showers are very nice, clean and well-maintained. There is an area adjacent (to the south) and up a short, but steep, path where dogs can run freely. It is actually the covered-over site of the former county dump, but you'd never know that from any foul odor. The only drawback is that the WiFi isn't free, and if you have a site very far from the central antenna, you'd better invest in an amplified receiver. Coach Connect is the provider, and while they try hard, the connection is often hit or miss, and the charge is about $35/month. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely landscaped clean campground backed up to the mountains. Grass, picnic table and tree at all sites. Friendly staff and clean facilities. Level concrete pads with sewer hookups. Propane available on site. Nice clubhouse. Dog walk area was small and muddy. We were used to paying a lot less per night but this seemed to be the going rate in the Metro and surrounding areas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We are going fulltime and are taking advantage of all of this campground's "rates". We stored for a month for only $50, and since we wanted to test our systems they let us hook up with the electricity metered. This is a great alternative to the usual storage places as it has much better security and amenities. They also provided free use of a 100# propane tank, charging us just for the LP itself. Being newbies they even helped walk us up through our hookups and gave us some valuable advice on blackflow siphons and pressure regulators. This wasn't something they had to do and we really appreciated it. If we want to stay overnight they just charge us the nightly rate and we unhook from metered for that time. There are extra charges for WiFi as it is provided by a third party service - Coach Connect. It's a little wobbly at the edge of the park but works even with video messaging so we are very pleased. And yes, there are additional charges for cable, phone, third person and pets (although they did not charge us for an indoor cat). Fulltime rates are $530 + meter for the month. We're very very pleased with this campground. Although it is urban, I have not found the noise any worse than the apartments we currently live in. At least in this park the guys rake the leaves - and don't use those awful leaf blowers! On the east side is a distribution facility of some sort and during the week there is the noise of trucks coming and going. We are parked on that side and once in awhile it gets loud enough to get my attention but nothing to upset me. On the west side are the two sports/biker bars and I have noticed on some nights you can hear the music loud and clear even on the east side when I'm outside. But there you go - it's urban. Otherwise the big rock hill on the back side which they dramatically light up at night helps to offset some of the location's drawbacks. Rattlesnakes exist in the "wild" - I appreciate the reminder for caution. And in the winter they are not active. There's also open space close by - Apex Trail - at the other end of the Heritage Square (fun weird place to visit even in the off season) just up the road to the west about half a mile. Perhaps because we were going to be living through the winter we were given a very nice concrete pad, easy to pull into (even for newbies) with our 34 foot motorhome. Leveling was no problem and all hookups worked perfectly. Most impressed by the friendly helpful staff and the sheer cleanliness and care that goes into the facilities and park. We cannot gush enough about this. Love the little streetlights, street signs and the dumpster is not a mile away! The park is not that big :-) And they also offer morning trash pickup at curbside. So unsure why that was a problem for another poster. Pool is closed for season but we will take advantage of the little weight room which has interesting water resistance machines, the billiards table and the cozy clubhouse. There's a small play set for children and a couple of little grass putt putt greens for the golfer. Funny to watch people chip about with those little plastic balls. Even a nice little gas fireplace and complimentary tea and coffee in the clubhouse. This park has nicer amenities than our last "luxury" apartment complex! The ladies bathroom/showers even has built in blow dryers and is meticulously maintained. Be sure to get careful directions, though - the location is great once you get there but right at this spot Colfax, Highway 6, 470 and 70 become all mixed up on the maps. Once there, though, you'll find you are within easy distance to Golden and all major shopping needs including Home Depot, Petco, Kohls, Wild Oats, Ultimate Electronics, Target, Office Max and many restaurants and a movie theater. Camping World is also not far away but currently are enduring road construction right in front of their entrance - take a car, not a motorhome if you can. Downtown Golden should not be missed. Very quaint and lovely. There is a shortage of good RV parks in the Denver area and I highly recommend this one if you are new to the area and want to get your bearings in a safe and friendly place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed at this park in 2002 and was very pleased and was looking forward to another stay here. Again this time, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The lobby is beautiful and I used the bath house this time which was well appointed, spacious and clean. However, this time I was given a site in the NE part of the park. The site was unlevel by 2". There was water constantly running down the road and on to my site which caused a constant mud problem and after a winter storm, very dangerous ice. The black top pad was worn and rutted. Some one had dumped their holding tanks on the ground and it looked like no effort had been made to clean it up. I looked around and and there were other sites available that had cement pads and were level with better views. Those sites also did not have the mud/ice problems I had. WiFi cost $4.95 and cable is $2 extra. These fees are on top of the $37.50 site fee. Because of the condition of my site, the extra fees and the fact that I was stuck down in the boondocks I do no find this park acceptable any more. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice urban RV Park. Very nice clubhouse with pool table and lounge. Workout room. Stayed on pad E3 which was an easy pull thru near the clubhouse. A pilot takes you to your space. Near Coors and golf. In Jefferson county and easy to get to. I will stay here again when visiting Denver. Make sure you have a reservation - I got one of the last places. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park for an urban park. The roads are narrow and the concrete pads are barely wide enough to park on with no pad for the picnic table. I don't care for the back to back parking where your 'front yard' is also your neighbors 'front yard'. Their website is very misleading, it says wifi is available at all sites and on the same page list the extra fees such as for cable and dogs etc. but does not say an extra fee for wifi. When I asked about it the lady said oh one of the books forgot to put that in there. I told her it is on the parks own website. I don't think that it was a mistake I think it is deliberately misleading. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites in this park are narrow as are the roads which are in poor condition. While many of the sites are tolerable, we were assigned one of the many inferior sites. The blacktop was severely crumbling and the site had a distinct downward slope. It made leveling very difficult after a difficult back-in with the trailer because of the narrow interior roads. Sitting outside was impossible because of the highway noise (a hill, so there was a lot truck revving sound), and construction of a building adjacent to the park. There were jackhammer sounds from 5:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. even on the weekend. The noise was as loud as if the jackhammer were beside your ears. The pool was not open despite there having been at least two weeks of over 90 degree temperatures. We definitely would not stay here again. There are extra fees for cable TV and for pets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here from Oct 2006 through April 2007. Very nice. The staff is friendly, for the most part. They provided an external propane tank for the winter, but charged us $2.70/gal when the going rate was $1.99/gal. The sites are narrow and our 3 slides just barely made it. They seem to 'nickel and dime' for assorted things, cable, pets ($25/month) and during the winter months you could not even GET to the dog walk. Their winter monthly rate was $530 + electric and propane. They raised their monthly rate for summer to $730 + electric and propane. Our electric bills ran over $100/month during the winter. (One month was $225!) If you need to work in Denver, this is pretty much your only choice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I thought this was a very nice park. The roads were a little narrow and made backing into some of the campsites difficult. Campsites were small, but clean. Propane was available, and the staff was very friendly. If I stay in the Denver area again, I will pick this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We like this campground. We had stayed here before and we were impressed with the cleanliness and the landscaping. It is a great base camp for spending time in the Denver area and also to run up to some of the mountain towns close to Golden. They were able to get us in at the last minute. Some of the sites are a little close and we had to take one of the smaller sites since they were about full, but even the smaller site was better than any other campground in the area. We have a 37' motorhome with two slides and we found our site fine for an overnight. They are building a pool. The staff is friendly. We will stay here any time we come back to Denver. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unlevel sites in both aspects; can lose a windshield from twist trying to correct both. Pet daily charge $1 per pet; Coach Net wi-fi fee. Visual ok - office facility excellent. Ok when in area and need a location but not really a great campground in terms of physical problem of uneven sites and these neddlesome fees which the really class parks are not charging. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice resort, which is just a tad tight for 45' Prevost. Also a little overpriced for their type of RV Resort. Having said that we'd stay there again as it is neat, clean, well organized, good management and close to the Denver area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a spotlessly clean, modern resort with a very cordial and helpful staff. A beautiful community room with a huge fireplace, tv, kitchen and even a trade a book library was decorated for fall. The spaces were wide enough for 3 slide-outs and we had no trouble at all maneuvering throughout the park. There is a shopping center close-by and a 12 mile drive on this same street takes you straight into downtown Denver. We have been fulltiming for over a year now and rate this resort very high on our list of favorites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
RV Park in an urban area, just off a busy highway. Spaces are quite narrow, but grass and landscaping are immaculate. Convenient to Golden-Denver-Boulder area. The area can get a bit noisy, especially on weekends when the bar across the street operates at full volume. WIFI and cable are available for extra fees. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you like a campground that charges a healthy rental and then tacks on fees for 50 amps, fees for your dog, fees for cable tv, and exorbitant wi-fi fees, you'll fall in love with this place. If you seek a campground that has sites so narrow that your wheels will barely fit on the paved area and one where your neighbors are so close that neither of you can put out your awnings, then this is the park for you. If you like getting out of your motorhome on muddy grass and don't want a patio, then this place is right up your alley. If you like walking half a mile to dump your daily trash in the only dumpster area in the park, then you'll love it here. If you don't mind walking past "watch for rattlesnakes" signs on the way to the only spot that lets you view the Rockies, then you'll be happy here. If you like roads that are so narrow and turns that are so sharp until you're biting your nails getting to your space, then you'll be pleased here. In short, this is a high class dump. Stay somewhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a neat, clean park with narrow, paved roads and level,concrete pads on every site.
All rigs are escorted to their site, and 40'+ rigs will have no problem following the escort to their assigned pad. All sites have small grassy areas w/tables adjacent. There are two dog walk areas and a hiking trail up onto the ridge, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view orf the Rocky Mtn. Front range, and of the denver area. It is very peaceful and quiet. The staff is very courteous, friendly, and helpful. The laundry, restrooms, and shower facilities are modern, well lit, and sparkling clean. LP gas, some groceries and RV supplies are available on-site. Drawbacks:Although there is a small playground in the prak , there is no pool, and not much else for children to do. However, this is Denver, and there are tons of things to do within 30 minutes travel time. The campground does offer discounts for area pools, and there is an amusement park in the area. Camping world and RV Dealerships are also less than 15 minutes away. Reservations and deposit are recommended. We will stay here again. We stayed here Memorial Day Weekend, 2004, in a 36' class A. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is great. The staff was very nice. We had no problems. Great place to see Golden and Denver, park is close to start of Rocky's. We plan to go back and spent more time. We run out of time due to all the places to see around this park. We camped here in a camper.
Very, very nice park. Easy big rig access. Concrete/asphalt pads. Desk in lobby for modem hook-up - 1 line. Very clean and well maintained. Open space behind park has picnic area and hiking trails. We camped here in a camper.
nice park, well kept, may have to unhook if pulling 'toad' with a 40 footer to make turns on some interior roads. We camped here in a camper.
Pull thru, paved sites with some landscaping between sites: Easily handled 40' 5th though parking for toter was tight. Neat and clean park; Close to interstate but hill in rear minimized noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
well kept, concrete pads, in foothills of denver, with easy access to I-70. We camped here in a camper.
