The primary obligation for an RV park is to give you a flat, mostly level site to park on and reliable utilities to connect to. This park failed us on the first point. We have been to over 160 RV parks and site 31 at Sugar Loafin Campground is perhaps the worst site I have ever tried to park on. Not only is it not level both front to back and side to side, but it looks like a bomb site with potholes, high spots, etc. At least bring in some gravel and fill in the holes so that it's sort of flat. I looked at other sites and many of them look like site 31. Another thing I have never experienced is the per person, per day charge on top of the daily rate. So apparently the daily rate includes zero people. For each person that plans to stay there, you will be charged an additional $4 per person, per day. Given that 90% of campers will contain 2 people, add $8 per day to the daily rate. Enjoyed Leadville, not so much with Sugar Loafin. With taxes we paid just shy of $50 per day for a seriously sub-par site. No thanks. Oh, and there is no WiFi, seriously, $50 per day and no WiFi.

Grounds are dirty, weedy, and cramped. Roads are potholed and dirt.

We had a very dissapointing stay here on our trip to Leadville. First, the good: The area is absolutely beautiful! This campground sits along a county road, but traffic is light so vehicle noise shouldn't be a bother (it wasn't for us). The office staff are extremely friendly and helpful, I had no complaints with them (while they were there). Now for the bad: They pack this place like a sardine can! The campground claim of 30ft wide RV slots is a COMPLETE LIE. My awning was only a few feet away from my neighbor, and I was only two feet from the hookups on the other side. On top of extremely tight spots, the DIRT roadways are narrow, one-lane paths. This combination meant I had to ask one of my neighbors to relocate their TV for the night so I could leave early the next day. It would have been impossible to pull my 25ft TT out otherwise. Fortunately I had very nice neighbors! There no paved or graveled RV pads. They have a few with concrete runners, but the majority of them are plain dirt and they ARE NOT LEVEL. Make sure you have some leveling blocks with you, because the ground gets very soft when it rains (almost daily in the mountains). Lastly there is no camphost (not that I ever saw any way) which means there is nobody to enforce quiet hours. So if you have noisy neighbors, you are going to have to go talk to them yourself. I can't comment on the bathrooms as I have my own and didn't use theirs.
Sadly, there are NO other campgrounds with hookups anywhere close to here, but I think boondocking or a NF campground would be a lot more enjoyable than going back.
