Stunning Hidden Find

This place is incredible! Right by a lake, this campground is extremely well maintained and spacious. You can sit at a picnic table, under luscious trees overlooking the lake and the houses beyond. There are RV spots and primitive campsites, and if you go Sunday-Thursday, those primitive sites are…

Good kid amenities

Convenient location along I-70 meant lots of highway noise. My kids loved the ping pong, basketball, inflatable jump pad, old metal playground and outdoor pool. Mosquitos were bad at dusk and dawn. Sites were tight and the standard site we had didn't include a fire ring. Restrooms were clean but…

Clean, friendly, quiet

Tent-camped at a walk-in site on S-loop (away from water). Gatehouse attendants were super friendly. Free shower house was clean and serviced regularly. Other loops a bit more busy but seemed nice enough.

Campground with Lots of Camping Opportunities

After having camped every night for the past several nights in cold weather, we decided to stay in a KOA Kamping Kabin this time. While we were in Colorado, it had gotten below freezing and it had snowed. It was time for a break. This campground should be rated on a scale of 1-10. I would give it a…

Truly A Hidden Gem

This was our second time camping here and we loved it just as much as the first! We stayed on Wheatgrass loop site #57. The sites are huge! This back-in site was easily 50-60ft long. Water and electric hookups were conveniently located and the site was mostly level side to side. And that view!…

This looks Fake

I'm almost positive this camp site is fake. I wouldn't call the number to make reservations.

Dirty bathrooms

  We came in the late afternoon on a Friday in October. Drove from the interstate. We saw the sign & turned. We became completely lost. I picked up a map at the office, which was closed, but it didn't help. We drove around then came back to the office. There was a conservation officer in the…

Restrooms are heated and showers are available as well.

Senior Passes are accepted. If you choose not to use the electric sites, there are primitive…

Beautiful Site

I camped in my tent here the last day of January and was very happy with the site. I was the only person who stayed the night and had an awesome time roaming the grounds in evening and morning! There was some snow and the ground and tons of tracks from wildlife when I woke in the morning. It was a…

What a lovely campground and state park

What a lovely campground and state park.  It’s 16 minutes off I70 and feels so remote and peaceful- no highway traffic noise. We pulled in late at night on a Monday in October after many hours in the road and were thrilled at how peaceful and clean it was. We stayed at campsite 17 right on the lake…
