The sites were nice with cement patios. Some were a little closer to other campers. The art sculptures and machinery were fun for the littles to see. We enjoyed the trail around the perimeter and they even had a band come out to play on Saturday.
We stayed here on our way from Denver to Santa Fe for a night. The hosts were super helpful at checkin. The sites are a little close and not a ton of trees. We checked out the water park and the water was freezing! The main pool is heated and nice. The jump pad and playground were fun for the littles. At times, you can hear the noise from the interstate and the gun range across the road. Overall, we will definitely be back to stay longer.
Very nice campground with a creek running through it. Bonus if you can get the creek side so you hear it all night. Well kept grounds. Very quiet and shady. Would definitely stay here again.
So much to do for the littles!! Recently completely redone the entire park and it is all so wonderful! The campsites are amazing and the activities are so much fun. I love the proximity to Denver. Our kiddos love the characters. We will definitely be back each year, even more so with the new park!
This was a very well kept campground. They were always watering grass, which the kiddos loved the sprinklers. We stayed in the smallest cabin they had, but it had AC, bathroom with shower, and small kitchen. Owners were very nice. There are a lot of mobile homes here that people seem to have purchased, but it wasn’t overly crowded with them or additional campers. RV spaces were semi-close together, but you didn’t hear your neighbors very much. Recommend getting a spot on the East side so you could have an actual lake view since it is technically across the highway from the lake. Speed limit was a strict 5 mph and they enforced it! Playground was a little older, but the kiddos liked it. Their little store had everything that you may have forgotten at home.
Super clean campground. Close to Red Rocks and Denver. You have to drive a bit to get to the lake. Some nice hiking and biking trails off the campground. Beautiful views of the mountains. Has trash and recycling areas. Would stay here again!
Such a beautiful campground. The sites are well spaced out and some are more private with trees. Playground is a lot of fun. They have some programs at their amphitheater. Close to biking/walking pathway that goes around the lake. To swim or SUP at the lakes, you do have to drive a little bit. Early weekend mornings you can typically see some hot air balloons.
This is one of our all time favorite places to stay. The key is to book way in advance as it is super popular with its close location to Denver, as well as get a spot on the water. There is no cell service, which is nice to just disconnect. Bring your SUP or kayak to enjoy the water more.
We stayed here overnight as we were traveling through and it rained most of our stay. The owners were super nice and checking in was quick. The spots are semi close to each other, but the people by us were quiet. They have some cute goats to see. We would stay here again.
Stayed here one night as we were traveling through. There was a mix up on our spot, so the host and ranger moved us to a new one by the water. They all had little docks that would be nice if you had a boat. The dam was cool to see and the playground was cute for the kids. They had some of the spots closed off due to COVID.
Stayed a night here on a Wednesday and there were only 5 other people. Host said it was going to be full over the weekend. It was very quiet for us. Lots of shade trees. It is not technically “lakeside” but about a half mile walk across the highway to get to the lake. It is well kept. Playground was nice and our kiddos loved it. Would stay here again!
The campground is non-electric, so remember that if you like to run your AC when it is 100+! Luckily, a rain shower cooled it off for us. There were only a handful of people staying there. The hosts were super nice and drove around to check on everyone often. Wish we would have booked the teepee spot so we could hang out in it. Luckily, we did not see any rattlesnakes, though I heard there are giant ones in the park. Lots of hiking trails. Overall, a gorgeous place to explore.
Gorgeous view of Devil’s Tower from your campsite. Lots of people staying in one place, but the sites are semi-spaced out. The store is cute and staff was helpful. Had outdoor movie night but the pool was closed (not sure if that is due to COVID or not). The playground was super popular with all the kids. Overall, a nicely kept campground.
Such a beautiful place to stay. Ideally, you would want a spot by the water and/or under the shade trees more. For the reservable side, it has electric hook ups and community water spouts you can fill your tanks with. Spots are pretty spaced out. The big lake is easy to get to. Dump stations are at the big lake and should be marked better. There used to be a playground at the campground, but it is gone. Did find one by the dam at the non-electric side of Lake Ogallala.
Reserved this last minute because we would be in the area over the weekend and were unsure on dispersed camping areas. The park itself is mostly year round/seasonal spots. The one spot that was left was next to the garbage truck and in the rocks, as well as right next to someone. Playground was super outdated. Workers were nice, but the place was not worth the money we paid. I did not see any grassy pads you are able to rent for the day/weekend like the previous photos showed.
Tried to go on Vasquez Ridge, but was closed on Winter Park side. We actually were able to go around on the Fraser side with Road 72 and it ran right into the other side of Vasquez. Lots of dispersed camping in the forest and next to a creek. Super peaceful. Close to hiking/biking trails. Please pack out what you pack in-lots of trash in the area.
Sites are really close together and campground was full for the weekend. It felt like too many people in the small area due to the lack of trees. Host was super nice. Close to lots of trails.
Tried to visit over the weekend and there was a big gate up with a closed sign on it. Close to lots of hiking/biking trails. Will try again next year!
