Granted we arrived after some heavy rain (I guess), but it was tough to get around without walking thru mud. Taking the dogs out for their business you came in with a filthy animal. The sites were really tight and it was tough moving around the campground with a 41ft 5th wheel. Saw other large rigs having difficulty getting into sites,
Clean and friendly staff
We stopped in to Wolf Creek State Park later in the day on a Wednesday after trying to stop at a different campground that was closed. We were worried about finding a spot as the sun was going down so we called even though no one usually answers phones at state parks (esp during COVID). The woman that answered was SO nice and I was so happy to hear a voice on the other end. So that’s a huge plus. You can reserve spots online in advance but clearly we did not because we didn’t know we’d be headed there. Same day is first come first serve. We are tent people and love primitive camping in spots where we can really be away from everyone and at least pretend like we’re alone. Rolling in in the dark, we weren’t motivated to checkout the walk-in campsites. And it wasn’t necessary because the area - which if full would’ve been pretty cramped for our taste- was absolutely empty. So we were happy. Many many spots for RVs all next to one another but there was tree cover for some and the possibility of a little bit of privacy but not much in that area.
We had an almost full moon, but otherwise I think the stars would’ve been pretty awesome. The next morning we woke up and took a little hike down to Shelby Resevoir to see what was around. We were at campsite 18 and it was about 10 min hike down over there. Beautiful and big! Maybe good swimming I would assume? Too late in the year for us.
We will definitely be back to checkout more of the primitive/walk-in/hike in sites! Hiking trails look interesting and fun and Eagle Creek State Park is just across the water (that’s the bigger one). The 4 stars was because the sites are pretty close together which- even with RVs- I think people mind- but maybe not? We love to be back in the woods ans I do think there is an option for that. We just didn’t have time to check it out. Will update!
We stopped for one night on our trip from DC to southwestern CO. We pulled in there at about 11pm. The ofc was closed, but the instructions were clear enough that we found our site (We’d booked online on our way there) and quietly set up. We woke this morning at 8 to donkeys braying which was cool. The area is clean, well-managed and has the look of a nice neighborhood of campers in the trees. Lots of kids and activities. The staff we interacted with were very friendly. It’s definitely a great place to stop on the way along RT 70 (easy off and on) for a night. It looks like some folks have settled in for the long haul with flower gardens and lawn furniture.
Just stayed the night on our way through. It was good enough. Level sites, clean pool and bathrooms. Our site was the pits - the very first one upon entrance so every car in the place had to pass us. Had we stayed more than the night we would have asked to move. And they have donkeys that are cute.
This is a wonderful campground with drive in availability, equestrian camp and reservable sites! The have great camp hosts Dave and Sharon on the reservable side that will help out in anyway and are so friendly! This campground also has boat access and a beach and hiking trails. It is built into the woods so most lots are very shady and all are very level.
