This is one of Colorado's best state parks when it comes to facilities. Roads are well paved, full hookups available, and clean bathrooms and showers. Campfire rings are well built with a water hydrant close by to help put out campfires. The park is located about 500 feet above the city providing a wonderful view during the day and night. There are numerous trails throughout the park suitable for hiking and biking. I cannot wait to come again.
The views of the lake and surrounding area are great. However, the park needs some serious upgrading. The roads within the campground need to be repaved. In the section of the campground where we stayed there were no showers and the toilets were vault type. There are apparently some showers and flush toilets at the campground entrance which was about 1/2 a mile from our section of the campground.
We were looking for one last camping weekend before the cold started to set in. Based on the previous reviews, we chose to stay here. We were not disappointed. The property is very clean and the staff very friendly. We had a very nice, wide back-in spot (#32). The location is about halfway between Colorado Springs and Penrose/Canon City. We would definitely stay here again.
We went to Lake McConaughy for Labor Day weekend and all sites by the lake were full. Luckily, this campsite had spots available. They have very nice long pull-through sites (big enough for a big rig and tow vehicle plus some). The staff was very friendly upon check-in. The location was quiet except for the occasional freight train in the distance. The location is about 1/2 mile south of the I-80 and we didn't notice very much traffic noise. We would camp here again.
This resort is on one of the coves of Grand Lake of the Cherokees. We came here with my parents for a jet-ski vacation. The resort does have a fishing dock as well as a ramp for boats/jet-skis. They also have four slips for boats (free if you are a guest at the resort). We stayed in a section that only had water/electric (30 amp) hook up, but was fine for us. Plenty of shade trees in this section with large sites. These sites were closer to the water as well. They do have about 20 or so pull-through sites with 50amp service. The staff was very friendly.
The campsites here are usually very spacious. However, there seems to be a lot of sites that are not level whatsoever and we were stuck in one of these this time. As with other Colorado state parks, you need to pay the $8 fee to reserve sites online. Usually this system works well for reserving, but on this last visit, our original site was double-booked. We were not impressed to say the least. The camp hosts were very friendly in resolving this issue.
We recently spent four nights here. The owners have recently reopened this campground. It is situated in the SW area of Lake Eufaula near Crowder off of Highway 69. They do have lakeside campsites available with a very nice view of the lake. They also have two boat ramps in the park and and a nice area for swimming, fishing, and jet ski load/unloading. The staff here are very friendly and eager to help out. My only complaint is the bathrooms. They were built in the 1960s and need to be updated and maintained a bit better. They are about 1/3 mile from the lakeside campsites (thus an additional bathroom/shower would be beneficial). I would visit again.
Jackson Lake is a great state park for fishing and water sports. We went here for the 4th of July weekend to do some jet skiing. The site has a lot of various sites (some with electric and some "primitive"). Sewer dump is at the park entrance. There are various water faucets around the park where you can fill up your water tank before you settle into your spot. The marina is fairly well stocked with food/goods. Gas was about $.40-$.50 higher per gallon compared to the city. My Verizon Wireless card did work although signal was very low.
The pros: The staff was very friendly. They also provided free WiFi service. We had a back-in slot that was actually double wide. This allowed us to park our motorhome, vehicle and a jet-ski (campsite not far from Lake Pueblo) with plenty of room to spare. They have a cafe onsite that offers reasonably prices meals (we ate breakfast and it was very good for the price). The sites seem to be fairly level. The cons: Very close to interstate and a main rail line as previous reviewers have posted. Pricey in my humble opinion ($46/night before taxes). The exit off the interstate to get to the campground is under major construction and can make it hard to make the correct turns (especially in the dark!). A lower price and proximity to the interstate would have raised my rating.
We have gone here the past two years for jet skiing. I highly recommend that water activities be done during the week instead of the weekend as it is zoo on the weekends. Since this is an irrigation lake, the water levels will drop dramatically later on in the season if it is a dry year. The end of June/early July seems to have plenty of water for water activities.
This is a very nice and quiet campground. We stayed here late in the season starting on a Sunday. There were only four sets of campers. The staff was very friendly. This may be a difficult campground for very large motorhomes as some areas are very tight. We did fine in our 30' motorhome towing a vehicle. The Wifi has good saturation throughout the park and was very reliable. We would definitely stay again.
This campground was not too bad. As the previous reviewer stated, the sites are a bit close together and can be crowded if the park is full. The WiFi is intermittent at best as it seems they need to reset their WiFi hardware several times a day. Once their office closes at 8PM, the internet soon dies after that. Vernal is a booming town with all the recent oil drilling and homes to rent are hard to come by. There are a few "rough necks" (folks that work with oil drilling) who are camping at the site, but they are very quiet for the most part. The park seems to be very quiet in the evening with no loud parties or radio. Probably would stay again if ever in the area.
We have visited this park a few times before. Depending on which area of the park they put you in, it can be a good or bad experience. This time we had a slot that was not on the perimeter of the park and was, overall, very quiet. Since we visited after Labor Day, they had closed the indoor hot tub, but the pool was still open. The park is near historic Manitou Springs and close to other attractions in the Pikes Peak area. Most sites are not too level. The roads are paved, but sites are gravel. They do have WiFi access, but we did not get a good signal where our site was.
The new owners bought the place in May or June. We made reservations with the previous owners who did not keep their reservation system up to date too well. When we arrived, they really didn't have a full hookup site for us. They did have a site that only had water and electric, which was good enough for us, and there was a sewer dump on the way out. The new owners went out of their way to make sure our stay was good. This location appears to be a former KOA. There are LOTS of nice big shade trees and lush green grass when we were there. The swimming pool was good size. Bathrooms were clean. We would stay there again if in the area. I think once the new owners clean up the reservation mess that was left to them, they will be able to keep on top of it all.
This park is very close to the main highway to the Islands in the Sky section of Canyonlands and about five miles or so from the south entrance of Arches. Also, about a mile north of the park is the west entrance into Arches which requires 4x4. For the area, the park was not bad. The sewer hookups required a very long hose as they were at the front of the space instead of the back of the space. I don't recommend that you buy gas at the gas station they have. We put some in our Jeep and it made the engine ping like crazy until I ran it out. The bathrooms are very nice (individual units) with toilet, sink and shower. I would probably stay there again if in the area.
This location is fairly nice. The pull-throughs are long, but seems like they pack a lot of people. Be careful when driving through the park as there can be a lot of people and vehicles in the road. There is a waterpark on the property as well (closed on Sundays). We arrived here on a Saturday and our site was near where people would walk from the waterpark section to the RV park section. People would walk right through our space without giving a second thought (ask for a space futher away from the water park section). The weekdays are better as there is not as many people. Plenty of large trees for shade. The wireless internet was spotty here as they were having hardware issues when we were here. We stayed for three nights. We would stay here again.
This KOA was not too bad as KOA campsites go. The staff was friendly. They also offered breakfast but we did not try it. The sites were not that level and were dirt/compacted gravel. They had wireless internet, but the signal was poor at our site plus they wanted a $6 for a 12 hour session. There is a playground for kids. The location is slightly east of town and about 1.5 miles from the interstate, thus noise from traffic was minimal. The road leading up to the location was under massive construction when we were there making for very tight fit for an RV on the road. We stayed for overnight and would probably stay there again if in the area.
This is one of the nicest RV parks that we have been to. There are not a lot of big trees yet since the park is so new. I cannot add too much else from what the other reviews have posted. My only complaint is that the wireless internet is not free ($4/day), but it does work very well. The free cable TV offers a good selection of channels. The price seemed fairly reasonable when compared to the other RV parks in the area. We would return here again if visiting the area.
I would hardly call this a resort. The pull-through sites were not level. The section that they put us in was far away from the playground and pool. There are no trees. The pull-through sites were wide though for your rig and a vehicle side by side. I think they are asking for a LOT of money for what they have. There seemed to be wireless internet there, but I could not connect. We stayed for one night and will not return again for the price they want. The views of the Tetons were nice though.
The owners have two locations in Lander. We stayed at the smaller one on the south side of town. The park was nice. There was adequate space in the pull-throughs for pull outs and longer rigs. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The location is on a hill and offers a nice view. My only complaint was the driveway coming in to the park. It was steep coming off the highway. If you angle your entry just right, you shouldn't have a problem. The wireless internet does have a short range and if you are not in the first row, you will need to go to the office to receive signal.
