We spent two nights at Kelly Dahl in our Class C motorhome and it thoroughly met our needs. The site is clean, orderly and not crowded. Apparently, in season it's tough to get a spot, but we had no problem getting one in the first come first serve section. Sites 1 - 20 are fcfs and 21 - 46 can be reserved. There are vault toilets and water. The sites each have a picnic table and a flat area for a tent, or in our case, a screened sitting tent. We didn't spend much time at the campsite. It's so close to outstanding hikes that we spent our days away visiting local mountain trails and hanging out in Nederland. (My wife found a small boutique that she enjoyed a lot.) Great pizza place and it's just ten minutes from the campsite, but feel like many more miles away. We recommend it highly.
We had a great stay at a tent site here. Our site was number 8, had a tree, and was by the bathrooms. The bathrooms were clean, and had a nice shower as well. Everyone was friendly, the staff and the other people staying there. Lots of RVs, but only three of the regular tent sites were taken and we had the most amazing view!
A nice campsite that is easy to access from the main road and the east side of the park. It is often fully booked, especially with how popular national parks are right now. The sites are fairly close together so you can easily see and hear other groups, but not enough to bother you. This particular campsite was a little inconvenient because it is about 30 meters from the parking spot, and it is all up hill. It can make moving coolers and other bulky items a little more difficult than usual. Overall, a decent camping spot. No spectacular views, but you are camping in a great national park.
This was our second visit to Pinewood Lake and while some things stayed the same others were much the same. Our first visit last fall was during the final stages of a blizzard. Not to be outdone this visit we arrived last week on the tail of an early September snowstorm! But the weather cleared quickly and all was well with great weather the rest of the weekend. This was our first visit with an on duty camp host and I must say that they were wonderful. The campgrounds were spotless, as were the restrooms. Camping during wildfire season in Colorado means fire bans but we found a way around that small obstacle. This lake is a great getaway and offers a ton of things to do. Hiking, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding to name a few. The views of the lake and surrounding valley are the Colorado foothills at their finest.
Very nice level sites. We stayed in site 100 and the other sites were a bit close by. No trees between us and the site on either side, but we did face the hill so the view was nice.
Lots of very friendly, helpful seasonal/ grounds keepers. General up keep was very good. The Yellow Lab at the front desk was so sweet, the kids loved her.
Affordable, clean spot to do laundry as well. Really close to Estes Park and easy off the highway when we needed to leave the next day.
