We stayed here in early June to avoid the chaos of RMNP and were not disappointed. The drive from Golden up into the park is beautiful and you truly feel like you are leaving the noise of Denver and the metro behind. There is no cell service anywhere in the park (for my Verizon phone anyway) which I actually enjoyed. The park is very quiet, has many beautiful trails (they arent necessarily marked the best and the maps mileages are a bit off, but made for a beautiful, longer than expected hike to Panorama Point.) Our site was very clean, the only complaint I had about our site in particular was that the fire pit was below the picnic table which was below the spot for our tent and the fire smoke overwhelmed the rest of our site due to the upwind. I did not know that we could not bring hammocks to the site so set mine up and came back to find it missing - a ranger stopped by and had put it in our tent with a note - my fault, they were very friendly about it. Beautiful and quiet campground over all with nice facilities for bathrooms and even dishwashing. Will definitely stay again over the National Park!
We stayed here in mid April, I believe we stayed at CC #6. The site was beautiful, the cabin well kept. My only complaint about the site is how close the cabins are together, but the fact that the decks face into the woods and ravine is very peaceful and makes up for it. The cabins are nearby a trail that you can wander through the woods down to the river which is nice. We definitely used the heat at night to stay warm but had the windows open at night, it was perfect weather, this is a great place for spring and fall camping. (Never been during the summer months.)
