Traveling full-time in a 42-foot coach we have stayed in over 400 RV Parks, we stayed here in August 2019 for six nights.
(1) Clean, quiet and well-maintained park with great amenities is what you will find here along with a very friendly staff.
(2) We live in the age of WIFI technology and there is nothing to stop any RV Park across this country from investing in doing WIFI properly. This park does not offer WIFI.
(3) Level pads, big coaches need paved or thick gravel pads that are level. We give this park a 5-star rating for having level paved sites. This park had the most generous sites we'd ever encountered! The amount of space between sites was absolutely amazing. No crowded sites here!
(4) Maneuverability, some parks have very narrow roads which make backing up and turning very difficult, we found this park to have plenty of room to maneuver including when towing.
(5) Dust, some parks are so dusty that even after short stays your unit needs a bath, not here, the dust on our coach was very minimal compared to many other parks.
(6) Satellite, as you know satellite reception is very hard to receive when you have large trees. If you stay away from the sites with the tall trees to the south you should receive reception.
(7) Phone Service, we have AT&T which worked great here.
(8) Dog play and potty, plenty of area to walk your dog here including an open off-leash area.
Bonus: This park has fantastic paved bike/walking trails that go throughout the park and around the reservoir lake. Be sure to take advantage of this great feature!
One oddity: Be prepared to pay an extra $10 fee (per night) for your tow vehicle, or your truck (if your hauling). Yes, your truck! Of all the different rv parks we've stayed in, we've never encountered an extra daily charge for our tow vehicle, or when we traveled with our trailer, an extra fee for our truck. This extra charge really caught us by surprise! I still think there must be some mistake or misunderstanding about this fee as it seems crazy.
Inspite of the extra fee, we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying here.
We spent four nights at Cherry Creek State Park. This is a great park, with big campsites and nice facilities, an 880-acre lake and lots of undeveloped land with hiking and bike trials, and a riding stable.
More remarkable is that the city has grown up all around it. But you would never know other than occasional traffic noise from a nearby road.
Be forewarned, they nickel-and-dime you to death. In addition to the camping fee ($30 per night and a $10 registration fee), you have to pay a $9 per day entrance fee and another $1 per day water charge. On top of that showers were 50 cents for three minutes. Though not enough to lose any sleep over the shower charge kind of ticked me off.
Great state park and campground. Sites are spaced apart; pull thru, cement pad. We were in an area where we were next to open field. picnic table and fire ring both in great condition. One of our favorite campsites on this trip!
Rate is $30 per night for 50A FHU, but you have to spend $9 per night or buy the $70 per year park pass so for our week stay, that brought the price to near $40. Very pretty state park, you are right in the middle of the Denver/Aurora metro area. Park is very busy. They have great spacing between the sites, power and water pressure is good. Wifi is better than when we were here 4 years ago, but as sure they planned it, still only good for checking the headlines and email. There are a lot of walking, biking trails on the park. Most are very busy with multiple traffics. We walked several of the trails, but there were always other people. Plenty of staff presence, friendly hosts who appear to have designated jobs and are working. Seems each site is cleaned between guests and the gravel patio raked. Most people obeying dog leash rules, a few not. Lots of deer in the park and throughout the campground. Hard to get reservations during the season, but we would stay here again.
a very nice state park – quiet, spacious, with sites ranging from tent sites to full hookups. Utilities all worked well with good WiFi. No cable but got 20 channels on batwing. Nice walking trails and beaches on the lake. Roads are paved and sites have concrete pads. Very clean bathroom/shower/laundry facilities but bathrooms have no soap (who ever heard of bathrooms not stocked with soap) so bring your own. Showers are pay ($1 for 6 minutes). My only gripe is the extra fees. Camping is $30 but then there's a $9 entrance fee and $10 reservation fee plus pay showers. And you better make a reservation well ahead of time. We were there on a Tuesday and it was full. Denver area traffic is terrible all day so be prepared for that. There is an easy gas station about 1 block past the park entrance in the large shopping center. I would definitely stay here again.
