Great park right along the Big Thompson River just outside of the main area of Loveland giving easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park just 30 minutes up the road. The park has a ton of trees and has a true camping vibe. It has a large portion of their sites for the short term campers set up along the river. These sites are all back in and go right to the edge of the river with a picnic table set up between the sites. The roads and sites are dirt and gravel and it can get dusty at times when there are several vehicles moving around. The staff was very friendly and accommodating for our changing plans. There were a lot of families with kids using the playground, volleyball and grass areas. Approximately half of the sites along the river give satellite reception, but most of the park will be blocked by the very large and mature trees. The wifi never worked well for us.
Dust! Seems to be a theme for us lately. Once again, we were at the intersection of 2 heavily used driveways. The driveways don’t have any gravel on them, just dirt. The site pad was dirt with scraggly weeds. There was a picnic table and fire pit but nobody wants to spend any time outside being assaulted by clouds of dust. We had a back-in site, full hookup with 50 amp electric. The free WiFi was OK, bathrooms were a little rustic but kept reasonably clean. We used the laundry and the cost was reasonable, $1.75 for wash and $1.75 for dryer. We will not return due to the dust. We paid $39.10 per night.

The campsite was really nice and the staff was very kind. Our spot was backed up to the river which provided a beautiful view. There was a live band at night, and a lot of things for kids too do. Estes park was just up the road and about a mile toward town was great hiking trails. Our only complaint was the size of the sites. All the campers were almost on top of each other. We couldn't even completely extend one of our slides or the awning.
Water pressure so low in RV that we couldn't take a shower. Cable tv had so much snow that we could barely make out the picture on some channels (had new co-ax cable so it wasn't us plus we had good picture in previous campground). Complained twice about pressure to no avail. Neighbor also had poor pressure and said office didn't care. Unfortunately not many park choices in this area. We gave up and left early. Advise you avoid this park.
This campground had a massive flood due to the Big Thompson River in 2013 and lost nearly 100 campsites. They are still rebuilding and most areas are very nice but some spots are still being updated. The staff are nice the spaces are somewhat small but overall very pleasant. Worth a visit, I'd go again!
This is a great place to stay. The people are very friendly. The grounds are family and pet friendly. Can't wait to go again. Minutes from the mountains, fishing, and shopping. In the summer months they have live entertainment most weekends.
The people were very helpful in making our reservation. The campground is in need of a overall cleaning. Poor grounds keeping, many old run down trailers with lots of junk outside, and very confusing roads with very poor signage. Not up to the Good Sams standards that we expect.
