Yes, there is noise from the freeway, but the park is very well-maintained and the people are friendly. Our site was grassy, but the ground seemed solid. Our nightly rate includes a 15% Escapees discount. One of the best features is the community campfire with seating all around. We enjoyed getting to meet our neighbors there. We would stay here again for an overnight.
I agree with others who have reviewed this park. It has nice long, wide sites and is quiet. It is not scenic, but it is a pleasant overnight stop. The best feature is the RV/truck wash that is just to the right of the exit from the campground. It works well and was extremely convenient to enter. I wish more campgrounds had such an easy-to-use RV wash. The 3-cent fuel discount was meaningless since the station was the highest priced in view. Price reflects FMCA discount.
Everything about this park says professionally run. The reservation was easy to make and the woman making the reservation worked with me to ensure that we got a site near family who had already made a reservation. The young man who checked us in made sure that our site had been plowed before he sent us down. We stayed on a "standard" site and had room for our rig, our towed vehicle, and a guest's car. Full time residents were friendly. A maintenance worker drove by and noticed a light out at the site and stopped to make sure everything was okay. Internet balked a couple of times, but was overall good. This resort is a little pricey, but we felt well cared for and felt that the facilities were as expected.
Pass this by if you're just here for an overnight. It would be a good place to stay if you were staying for a few days to enjoy the city of Golden and the creekside campground. Almost all of the sites were taken by rigs that were obviously there long-term. We were outside the 14-day limit time of the year. That left three sites with electricity only for us to use. The site we were assigned was barely long enough for our rig and getting our towed vehicle on the site was a feat. Our main concern was that the electrical power was very low voltage for most of our stay. Internet was off and on. We were also concerned that one of the two fresh water spigots for filling tanks was in the same space as the dump station and the other was at the back of an unused camp site. Park staff was nice and we were offered a 50-to-30 amp adapter if we needed one.
We came in on a Sunday morning and the office was closed and did not open. We self-registered so we may be missing some information that would have been available if we had talked to park staff. The cable reception was unacceptable; it was fuzzy and we did not get any of the major networks. A neighbor told us that the cable system had been hit by lightning and there was a dispute with the insurance company. As mentioned by another reviewer, we were expected to disconnect our water overnight. The park definitely needs a little TLC. We were in a site by the Interstate, but inside the RV the noise was not noticeable. We would stay here again if the timing required a stop in Raton. Wi-Fi worked great.
This is a nice clean campground with a few long-term residents. It made a great overnight stop. The management was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi service was free and fast. Murals downtown were interesting. While it is not the most scenic, it was comfortable and convenient.
The road leading to the campground is winding and two-lane. However, there are plenty of signs telling you when and where to turn. We particularly appreciated being routed on a bridge over the railroad tracks in the town of Saluda. We were traveling with a 13-year old and he was greatly entertained here with the facilities available. He used the zip line, the lake for swimming and for paddle boats, and the skateboard ramps. Our site was long enough for our 36-foot unit and our full-sized SUV. The office staff was courteous and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
The new owners have really worked to spruce up the park. They are very friendly, helpful, proud of their park, and concerned about their guests. I was given instructions for a "safe" way to get to the casinos. I appreciated the cleanliness of the park. The wifi has worked well for us. They have discounts for Good Sam or for Escapees. The sites are narrow, and we didn't put our patio awning out all the way because we were afraid that it would hang over the site on that side of the coach. Since we are here for only one night, that's not a problem for us. We will stay here again.
We had a blood-pressure raising experience just trying to get into this park. Getting to the park requires careful navigation. When we arrived at the front gate, we pressed the intercom button to ask for admittance, but there was a malfunction and we received a busy-signal type sound. When I used my cell phone to call the office to ask for admittance, the manager answered the phone and was very rude. He agreed to open the gate, but did not. When I called back, he yelled at me to use the intercom and then hung up on me. We were rescued by a very nice young woman from the office who walked out and opened the gate. She was so pleasant we chose to overlook the manager's behavior. The park is located at the intersection of two interstate highways which makes it extremely noisy if you are parked on the periphery. It does have nice facilities and is reasonably close to a Camping World and Chicago.
This is a very friendly, quiet park in a unique location. We considered it one of the nicer experiences on our trip. The owners have made an effort to make the park enjoyable for all guests. The grounds and the pool were very clean. Although our site did not have sewer, we found the dump station a convenient stop on the way out of the park. We enjoyed walking through the dunes, and our grandson enjoyed hunting for "gem stones". The drive to Freeport is short so we were able to run into town for dinner.
