Alright free camping

This was our first free campsite we've stayed at. The camping area is about 3 miles down a well maintained gravel road that ends into basically a gravel parking lot that is camping zone. There are pit toilets all over the place. We didn't really like the parking lot camping area and with no one…

Nice campsite!

Went here on a sunday night. Only two other campers. Toilets, dumpster, and water pump present. Only bummer was lots of ticks and there must be a gun range nearby, which set off our dog's anxiety.

Nice semi-quite place to overnight.

All and all nice place. Some roads are gravel and chalky leading there (my cars still covered and I'm in Colorado now!) Pit Toilets were nice, one for campground. 2 potable water sites. Campsites were not well defined and judging by the beer cans in some site fire rings it might get rowdy on the…

  • View from site #8. About 5 spots occupied on a Wed night.
  • 8 miles on this road coming from the East off of 70.

Neat location; didn’t love rv spots

The area as a whole is neat. The primitive sites are spacious and lovely. We have an rv with 50amp service and essentially, we were on a converted parking lot next to a pavilion. The sites facing the river were a bit nicer.

There is security that drives around to check on everyone which is nice…

Fun, clean and family friendly

We booked a RV trip here with another family. We were able to reserve side by side and had a great time. We even scheduled a float trip. The general store has most everything you need, its quiet, family friendly and well maintained. There were many activities to choose from. We are excited to go…

Lots of Family Fun

We love to camp here, we have lots of friends here, old and new. There is swimming year round with 2 indoor pools, hot tubs and sauna. Summer time swimming at 1 outdoor pool and 2 swimming beaches at the lake. You can rent paddle boats, canoes, kayaks and fishing boats. Plenty to do all year round…

Excellent Campground

So nice and clean. The office staff was so pleasant as well as the guys that delivered firewood and ice and helped guide us into our spot. We made plans to go back in a couple weeks. We were there Memorial weekend and the place was packed but still nice and quiet.

Quiet and relaxing

This place is really awesome! One of our favorite stops all year. Full hookups, level pad, clean, and quiet.

Jason met us within minutes of our arrival and was very welcoming. Check it was easy and straight forward. We bought ice for $3 and farm fresh eggs for $2.

You need reservations. It is a…

Unexpectedly nice spot along I-70

Friendly staff at check-in. Firewood was delivered promptly. Had a shady pull thru site. Was convenient to I-70. Very quiet. A mix of seasonals and those traveling through. Pool was sparkling clean. Restrooms were not private but were clean. Camp store was cute.

Couldn’t find the campground

There was no signage and Google and Apple Maps couldn’t get us there. When we found the trailhead there was no designated camping spot on the maps. I

Peaceful

We stayed in our pop-up camper that was close to the road at the front of the campground. Across the road was the river so we were close to the river which was very nice. We did take a walk through the campground which is very large. We found a dry riverbed where we looked at rocks. There was a…

Mixed reviews

We were parked on a hill with lots of gravel. Campsites are very narrow. But there was a very nice pond to fish at although it was a bit of a hike to get to. They have a dog park which was nice.
