Wonderful state park

9/25/2020 Pros: this could be a long list but I will give the top pros. Very easy to find, very easy to check in and easy to access sites, back in or pull through. The entire park is very well kept. Sites a spaced apart no crowding. Beautiful cottonwood trees turning colors. Big rigs this is the place for you.

Cons: Have not found any yet.

Maiden Voyage

Just bought our adventure van and decided to try it close to home so we could understand how everything worked. The campground is clean and quiet, I made a quick stop in the facilities and everything was well maintained. I didn’t love the campground feel … I felt like I was very close to other campers. Now that I know our camper van is in complete working order, we will be doing more dispersed camping - trying to get away from it all - isn’t that what camping is all about?

Beautiful getaway right outside Denver

The park was much bigger than I thought. The sites are decently spread out but this park is always packed due to it’s close proximity to Denver so I would recommend reserving ahead of time. There are lots of biking/hiking trails that mostly cover the area around the reservoir. The “beach” area was my favorite. The water was cool and felt great back in August when the days were excruciatingly hot.

The bathrooms were clean but showers are coin operated so bring quarters (some of their change machines weren’t working). It was $1.25 for 6 minutes of hot water. Depending on which shower stall you choose you may get great water pressure or you may get one that dribbles. Coin operated laundry is available (indoor) and the machines are clean and well maintained.

This is definitely a great place to get out of the city for a couple days. Bonus points if you have a boat and can take full advantage of the reservoir.

Nice state park outside of Denver but expensive

The facilities at this state park are really nice. Relatively level and paved spots, big rig friendly, full hookups at sites, and laundry and wifi on site but it's not the prettiest or most secluded campground. There's a lake and lots of trails for biking or hiking and I think it popular getaway for locals. We did see lots of deer and a great horned owl which was cool. You can definitely hear the highway and are close to any amenity you could need. About a 35 minute drive from downtown to explore. It's a bit expensive with a daily fee on top of camping fees. We were happy to snag a spot as it's one of the closest and nicest options to explore Denver in an RV but wasn't wowed.

A piece of nature tucked into the city.

Located in the city, but once you’re in the park you don’t feel like you’re in the city at all!!! The RV spots have full hookups and are nice and spacious, as are the neighbors. We were able to set up a tent too! Great place to stroll and relax. Beautiful sunsets. Clean bathrooms and laundry facilities with a little vending machine.

A great place for camping (RV and tent spots), fishing, wildlife/nature viewing, hiking, boating (all water activities), has a swim beach, marina, off leash dog park, shooting range, horse stables that you can do a beautiful hour horseback ride.

FEES: Campsites $41 full hookup, basic campsite $28, daily park pass is $11, annual park pass $83, daily dog park pass $3, annual dog park pass $25, and group camping is available too.

Full hookups but little shade

Fairly spread out sites but very little shade. Full hookups but Colorado price increase and state park access fees are nuts! Each site has a concrete parking pad, but for some inexcusable reason they're very NOT level.

Great Place

For a park that is almost right in the city this place is really awesome… the SUP is fun but if the wind picks up it’s tough.

In-City camping, but away from it all

This CG is very well maintained… It is a state park and like others has great maintained camp grounds with full hookups, dump site, and many recreational activities.  It is in the center of the city, but aside from the traffic on the dam in the distance you would not realize it.  Sites are clean, level, have fire-pits and picnic tables… you can choose loops with hookups or without… Most sites do not offer a lot of shade, but some have a few trees.  The reservoir is the main activity draw (beach, boating, fishing) but there are plenty of trails also in the park to bike/walk.  Because of its proximity to Denver Metro it is very busy in the Summer season.

Super busy but great for dogs

This is a location that you only camp if you literally don't have any worries about being around people. It is ALWAYS packed due to the tons of hiking trails, huge dog park, and water access. 

I taught kayaking to little ones here and it was always a fight to get into the park, get to the water, and not get run over by boats and unexperienced (or entitled) people. 

The campground is well maintained but it sit really worth being able to be basically in a metropolitan city? For me I'll go somewhere more nature friendly and less crowded. 

BUT it is excellent for dogs. We love taking out dogs here because they can play in water, run their hearts out, and hang out with other dogs. It is pricey to get into the park though. $80 for a year pass to the state parks and another $25 for the dog park fees.
