STAY AWAY !!!!!!! i booked a pull thru 6 months ago, got charged a deposit for a pull thru. Then when I got here, they had switched me to an 18 ft. back up for my 24 ft. motorhome. The manager, who refused to give me her name, was awful! Apparently a new employee had switched our reservation a few days ago in error. The manager yelled at her right in front of us!!!!! The manager ( a slender woman about 5'5" with short brown hair) said there was nothing she could do for us and offered to refund our money....she said there was no guarantee on sites... yet after we took the inferior site, we noticed quite a few pull thru's that were not occupied. So apparently someone got preferential treatment over us getting there early!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEN she had the nerve to charge us an extra $25 for getting there 30 minutes before check in (although by the time we settled the matter it was just 10 minutes early!) She refused to remove the early charge to compensate us for the errors THEY made! Go somewhere else if you can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First the facts then I will share my emotion. Facts: * Made reservations Dec 29 2017 for a one week stay June 29th to July 6th 2018 * was promised site 37 by the staff at the time * was given site 22, was told by the Manager this site is for 20 ft trailer, I have a 24 foot trailer which they knew about * Site 22 has what maintenance told me is an underground spring running through it * Manager would not give me a different site, she said none available * You get to view your neighbors sewer a few feet from your door * You have very little space outside, slopes down when you exit your door causing possible trip hazard * Site very unlevel, large down hill slope from front to back, making it hard to level. I needed to use their parking timber to even get close * Site had two warehouse pallets on ground right side to try to cover pooled water from running spring * Paid $68.00 a day for 7 days total $480.00 * You get to listen to forklifts and loud banging in the morning and afternoon because the park is behind a warehouse that runs 6 AM to 10 PM * Manager would not give a discount for the site and problems * WIFI worked well the majority of the time * Water pressure was good * They pick up your trash each morning Emotion: I have stayed at a lot of RV parks before. My experience with the management being able to solve a problem they created was horrible! I feel I paid a very high rate per night and was left feeling like all they care about was your money. I was offered a refund which someone in the park says they never do. The reason they did it for me I believe is with the 4th of July weekend they knew I would have to stay, which they were correct as everything else was booked within miles. When you make reservations 6 months in advance you do so to avoid situations like this. I was told when I got there by the manager, they don't guarantee sites, but yet in December they did. Not my fault. I thought I was the customer paying some of their bills, apparently not. They made their management issues my problem and I only wanted to vacation. They could have softened the blow of having to accept site 22 with a discount. It would have at least showed they cared, but they don't. Just get your money. A lot of this stuff I could deal with if they would have offered at least one of the options I presented, a discount or another site. That would have told me at least they cared. I'm not in the RV park business but am told a lot of parks always try to leave one site open to avoid this type of issue. Again very poor management. Know what your getting into if you decide to stay with them. Some others in the park I talked to were not happy. I paid a lot of money for a bad experience!

I had reservations for three nights and we had just driven in from Kansas City Missouri. After checking in and paying for our site, we were escorted to the site and my husband and staff looked at the site and there was no way our 34 foot 5th wheel was going to fit safely. We returned to the office and talked to staff and they set us up for a 30 foot spot instead of 34 foot spot. The staff said they were completely booked and couldn't help us. We asked if they could call another campground and staff said nastily we don’t do that. We just drive 7 hours and they didn't even apologize that they made a mistake. I would have rated them 0 if that was in your rating. There are so many good campgrounds, if all campgrounds were like this one, I would sell my RV.

So over priced for what you get. For $70 a night, I expect a darn near perfect park. Uneven pads, narrow sites - once slide outs are out, you have no concrete to walk on. One lady at registration was awful to work with. Just didn't care about customers. We ride so the biker bar across the street with live music and bikes ripping out of there was okay to us but I can see where it would be a problem for others noise wise. We made reservations saying we had a tow. They gave us space C1 leaving us nowhere for the car. There are three parking spaces down the road for cars. Each time I came back to the park they were full so I just squeezed in fron of my motorhome. Location is good but there is no breathe taking view of the Rockies. NO CABLE!!!!! When we are traveling we depend on local TV for weather and things to do in town, stores to visit. I understand we can get that through Google but for $70 a night, they should have cable. You cannot have your mail or packages sent here. I would recommend looking elsewhere and saving some money.

Unfortunately our experience was not a good one. Where do I start. The resort packed the trailers and class As in like sardines. Parking for vehicles was difficult or non existent. The game room ( pool table ) was ripped and not really usable. The workout equipment was broken and not usable. One of the office staff was hard to deal with and down right mean. It was winter and if they did not like where your heated hose was plugged into the power box they would just unplug it and throw it on the ground. EXTREMELY expensive and they wanted to charge for everything they could nickel and dime you for. The supposed scenic views had the interstate on one side and a storage facility on the other. Unfortunately multiple other issues just not worth the trouble for short time parking just stay in the Walmart parking lot. Save your money and aggravation Rving should be fun this was not. Check out other Dakota reviews especially on Yelp I see many others had some of the same issues.

We were on the road for two weeks, and this was the WORST park we stayed in. We arrived on a Saturday evening about 5:30 PM - the office was closed; our reservation/site information was pinned to a bulletin board. After following the map (thru one way streets) we found our sight on the right-side (blind side for backing into) of the downhill street; the site was 90 degrees up a different hill to get to the VERY narrow concrete pad. Thankfully somebody had dug a "step" into the hillside just below where we positioned the step to our rig - otherwise we have stepped out on to about a 45 degree downhill slope.We checked out the following morning. Sites are small, staff makes you feel like teyt are doing you a favor to even talk with you. If you are travelling in the area, PLEASE find another park to stay in!

My husband and I are currently full-time travelers who until recently lived in the Golden, Colorado area for over 20 years. We have a 30 foot travel trailer pulled by a Ford F-150. We stayed at Dakota Ridge for 14 nights after Labor Day in September of 2017. We were assigned site M20 when we arrived. We were escorted to the site, which was a nice touch. However, the site was surprisingly narrow. Fortunately, my husband is a pro at backing the trailer up. There was just enough room for the trailer and a picnic table that we had to move to the back of the site (that had an extreme drop-off). Our truck was then jimmied in across the few remaining feet at the opening of the site. What we immediately realized also is that the entire RV "resort" is adjacent to a manufacturing complex that operates from 6AM to 10PM Monday thru Friday and sometimes on the weekend. We awoke every day to an employee arriving for work with hip hop blasting at 5:55 AM. At 6:00 AM every day, the bay doors of the manufacturing facility were thrown open and the day's heavy construction began. Very loud noises all day long. Dakota Ridge RV "resort" has made no effort at all to provide any sort of mitigating sound barrier. You park right next to the noise. When we asked to move to another site, we were pleasantly told that they would check and get back to us the next day. We never heard a word. The receipt you get up front states in bold letters that they give no refunds - a clear red flag that we were not the first unhappy travelers. The roads at the "resort" are narrow and uneven with many old patches. Really the only positive comments I can provide are that the "resort" does provide a good location as far as proximity to shopping and dining, plus the laundry facility is clean. This park is overpriced for what you get - BY FAR!!!! We will never stay there again!!!!!

This is Dakota Ridge RV "RESORT". The first picture was taken from the front door of our RV. The second picture is the front of our site. As you can clearly see the neighbors septic hose is under our awning. The third picture is sitting on our "patio" in front of our RV. This is beyond disgusting to me. The fact that they expect people to expose themselves, their children, and pets to their neighbors feces is beyond my understanding. I saw a child in the park playing in their front space and she pulled the neighbors septic hose out of the ground. GROSS! This is not only unsightly, stinky, disgusting, and inexcusable, it is not sanitary. We most certainly will not be back to stay here nor will we refer anyone else to come here. Our spot is like a postage stamp with a sewer view. We spoke to the office and she stated the park is old and there is nothing they can do about it. My thought is start working on your greed and maybe rent every other spot. Of course that would never happen because with business owners like this they are only concerned about the bottom dollar.

These people run a nice campground; however... RULES, RULES, RULES! From the moment you walk in the door, you're blasted with rules posted all over the cabinets. I needed to overnight my meds (I forgot at home), and I was open with them about that, but their rule is they WILL NOT accept packages for their customers! Period! ...end of story. These people seem to be afraid of every little thing. They must've really been bit at some point. So, I'm waiting at my camp site and the mail carrier shows up and I, literally, run to the front office to beat him into the door. The mail carrier puts my package on the counter and one of the ladies says to the other, "Don't touch it!" Serious! We had friends show up and we had to pay $5/person to for them to stay in our coach! Our friend was arranging his bags in his truck and one of the park employees came by to make sure we were not working on the coach! Really! Ours is a Brand New, 2018 coach, and no need to work on the coach! But RULES, RULES, RULES! There are signs EVERYWHERE! Do this and don't do that. I was afraid to be outside after 10:00 for fear I would have the rules police show up! Nice camp ground, but you're very very controlled and policed. Maybe good, but not so good!

Traveling in @roadsongairsteam and learned the hard way about Dakota Ridge RV Park. Good Sam Club has them rated 10/10/9 and their location is great. How bad could it be? Very very tight spaces, ski ramp approach to our site, no cable tv, no recycling, no ice, dumpster locked after 10:00 am, sketchy wifi, road noise, and then there is the bad news: constant sewer gas odor. I'm outta here.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Always greeted me when they saw me and asked if there was anything they could do. The grassy areas were brown but they said there was some work done and the sprinkler lines were cut and they were trying to get the grass green again. The facilities (clubhouse, restrooms, showers, pool) were very nice and well kept. I especially like the roomy showers. On the downside, the interior roads are quite narrow and congested because the sites are pretty short. All interior roads are blacktop and sites are concrete but narrow. Sites are not real close together, but there is not a lot of "elbow room". Based on all this, I think it is a bit of a stretch to call this a resort, but it is a nice place to stay and out of the city. Price seems a bit high but it is a metropolitan area.

Way over priced, not much help from the park, bathrooms broken and they stink, I asked why the store is empty and she told me to go across the street for what I needed... @ 60.00 a night this place is cheap and worth 2 stars.

Dakota Ridge RV Resort is the worst campground we have ever stayed at in our 20 years of camping. I reserved "buddy" sites six months ago, and our sites were open when we arrived, but they decided to give us the two worst sites in the campground instead, J1 and J2. Our "buddy" sites faced AWAY from each other, unlike the sites we were supposed to have. So we had a buddy site with a stranger instead of my folks. Avoid this RV park at all costs, but absolutely refuse J1 and J2 if you must come here. My folks and us both bottomed out getting in, and I bent one of my jacks beyond repair. I went and bought a new set of jacks, which cost me $100, and asked for some compensation. Just $30 was all I asked for, and we paid over $240 for three nights here, and I was told they wouldn't do anything. Worst customer service ever!! Please share this with anyone you know that goes camping in the Denver, CO area!

5 gallons of RV's crammed into a 3 gallon bucket. To arrive or depart will most likely require numerous neighbors to participate as their trucks/autos/RVs create obstacles (just hope they are available and not away or asleep!). One side of the park appears to border a landfill while the other is only feet from a very busy street (HEAVY weekend traffic fairly constant until well after midnight). Staff friendly but beware!

At first glance Dakota Ridge looks lovely. As you drive in to your site though, (we arrived at 7 pm; office was closed but paperwork was waiting for us in the lobby), the roads are very narrow, cars jutt into the roads making driving to your spot a challenge - a big challenge. Our site was small - all the sites are narrow and short - which is why cars and rigs extend into the roadways. The site itself was a nice level slab - but there's grass on either side and there's almost a ditch and big step down from the slab to the grass if you want to walk around. Because everything is so tight, getting our coach into the site at the right angle was impossible. We tow a car and it's just about sticking out on one corner - we didn't have a choice of pulling up more as even with two joined sewer hoses we would not have been able to reach the dump pipe had we moved up. Water and electric connections work fine but are old. There's soft mud/spongy filling in the ditch in a small area of the concrete pad which I suppose is to facilitate walking but its spongy and prevents putting a step-stool down - so getting into/out of the rig isn't all that easy. These fillings also track dirt wherever you walk. We didn't bother to level our coach as the pads are pretty level - and if we did I don't think I'd be able to get in/out without climbing on handrails. There are signs all over to clean up after your dog - but there are few garbage receptacles; I walked to the office to find one, which was full and I had to stuff a poop bag in. The pictures of Dakota Ridge are lovely, but clearly taken when the park wasn't nearly filled - during our stay it seems packed. This is one of those cramped parks where if you put your arm out a window you'd come very close to touching your neighbor. Haven't met any staff - our paperwork said to be sure to check in tmw morning by 10 - however I am expecting them to be overpriced for what's at best mediocre accommodations. We would likely not stay here again. Have no idea how Good Sam rated this camp ground so highly.

We had a confirmed 3-day reservation for full hookups for my 32 ft 5th wheel but when we arrived we were told that the only remaining site had no water. They said they had potable water supply to fill my tanks to use during our stay but when the escort brought me to the water source it was their dump station hose and was clearly labeled as non-potable water. The escort said it was city water and safe to drink but when I asked that he drink from it he responded that he doesn't drink city water. They offered to refund our money and we could leave but they also said that there are no other parks with openings in the area (which my wife called and confirmed). As a result we had no option but to stay at the site with no water. I suggested to the manager that he at least offer some small discount due to the error and no water and he refused, again stating we could leave. Horrible customer service. Apart from this huge issue, the park physically was acceptable. They offer cement pads although ours was far from level. Our was a pull-though site of sufficient length and offered a picnic table. Spacing was about 10 ft apart with grass yards between. The advertised wifi did not reach our trailer. Overall this is not the experience I expected from a Good Sam's listed Campground. I would never stay here again.

We requested a long pull thru when I made the reservation. they take you to your spot It was to short. I called office and they told me they made a mistake and moved to a longer one. The spots are very narrow (my tires are approx. 2" from a drop-off ). They don't have cable TV anymore.). This rv park is way over priced for what you get. I wont stay here again.

We no longer recommend Dakota Ridge. Beware. This is not a "resort". It's nothing more than an out of date, over priced, rule laden, older RV park. The sites are short by today's standards, so many RVs extend into the street, and vehicles park extended into the street, to the extent that big rig manuvering can be a challenge. Reservations require a 50% NON-REFUNDABLE deposit. Holiday weekends require a three day minmum at an escalated $70/day. Your guests are charged $5/vehicle plus $5/person -- even for a few minutes visit. And, if not paid, the park's golf cart police will rudely insist on them leaving immediately. Also, fines abound. Our family have used this park for many years -- going back to when it was the Scenic Rock Campground. The draconian customer treatment has been instituted over the past three years. We will no longer use Dakota Ridge. There are better alternatives.

We travel full time in a 45 foot coach and have been traveling from 2008. So, in other words, A LOT. I mention this so you know we have things to compare to. WE HAVE NO IDEA on how this park gets good reviews. The park is rated as a Big Rig park. While we did fit, it truly is NOT setup to handle large rigs. Few sites fit a 45 foot coach here and the pads just fit the coach and you step out on rocks if you do not twist an angle on the concrete. The site they gave us, a "PULL THROUGH" which we can not pull out of as we would not be able to make the turn as they have a light poll in the way and the site in front of you is too close as the road is too narrow. As such, this pull through site needs to be backed out of. We made mention of this to them and the answer was that they have few sites that will fit. We did tell them that the site they put us in, while we did fit, we could not pull out of and need to back out. We asked for a back in site, which is less expensive, and they said we would not fit. So not only do we still need to back out of a pull through, we needed to pay the higher price. The site is not level, a number of them are not, and we could not use our jacks and needed to air level, good thing we have that option, as the site is so off, the jack leveling system said NO WAY! Then you have the sewer line that goes UP HILL! Yes, depending on which way you are parked, your line may be UP HILL and thus becomes an issue when it comes time to put things away as there is no way to empty the tube before you disconnect. The sites also share a common area. So your door is facing the door of your neighbor. So you have no private area. In fact, we can not even use the picnic table as it is at about a 20 degree due to tree roots. And that tree is so close and over grown that we can not use the awnings. Ok, water pressure...They have good static pressure. Note what I said...Static. When it is OFF the press build up to about 60 Psi, however when you open it, it is good for about 3 seconds and then it drops to about 30 Psi. We have to use our water pump. Note...They also will not even accept deliveries. So be sure you do not need that. Office Staff was very nice. They felt bad but could not really do anything. We did let them know that it would be good to NOT put a 45 foot coach in that site in the future. Wi-Fi uses Ubnt commercial gear with Wireless bridges and then AP's off of that. (Which is right.) The bad part, too many bridges with only on one master AP they connect to. They seem to limit speed to 3Mbps down and .5 up. The down speed works well (at least right now) but they could up the upload speed to even 1 Mbps. 3 Mbps is enough for surfing and email and is how a park should be setup. (Seeing I do these, I do agree with how it was done except for the single master bridge AP.) We stayed late October and at this time it costed us $61 a night!!!! Too much for what the park is. But I guess you pay for the location and not now nice the park could be. Would would leave if we could, but there is NO REFUNDS and also they take 50% on booking that is not refundable. Glad we only booked 3 nights, but that is 3 nights too long. YOU WILL BE MUCH BETTER OFF IN A STATE PARK. (Sigh, nothing close to the area.)

Sites not level Lots of rules - they make you sign extra forms about their dog rules that they don't enforce, one quick walk around and you'll see lot of dogs chained up outside with no owner out with them. and there's dog barking all day around the park. No dog park $5 per visitor and $5 per car for visitors who aren't staying the night, they just came for dinner Pricy Laundry - $2.50 to Wash, $2 to dry and my clothes were still damp Tight roads hard to back into spot We were on the outside edge and there's an industrial area next door who work from 6am to 9pm very loudly Limited restrooms, only located at the office and not many toilets. the restrooms also close from 3:30pm-5:30pm everyday for cleaning. No cable Terrible wifi I wish Denver had more options for RV parks than places like this couldn't be so awful. Positive - it's a clean park and not far from downtown Golden

Clean park, friendly, helpful staff. We didn't use the restrooms or the laundry so I can't say anything about them. Sites were a bit smaller than we would have liked, but not uncomfortable. We never did get the wifi to work, but we didn't really need it so we didn't ask for help so that's not the park's fault. Liked the trash pickup service, that's helpful. The only 'complaint' would be the bar to the west with a loud band at night. But we couldn't hear it inside the RV so it was not a problem for us. Otherwise I'd say it's a nice place. We usually prefer to be out of town a ways, but it's a nice place none the less.

The park is very clean, nice showers, bathrooms, laundry room, and pool. On checking in staff was efficient and friendly. You are escorted to your site which can be helpful or a hindrance. Spaces are very close together side by side and the path to your space is narrow. Parking your vehicle can be difficult. During the weekend the site is relatively quiet with the exception of barking dogs outside of the park. Monday a.m. the industrial noise was incredible. Large semi-trucks backing up, honking, and unloading. On Monday, the day we were scheduled to check out by 11 a.m., we received a call about a family emergency. We decided I would stay in Boulder and my husband would return to Texas with the trailer. Because of the traffic issue and the fact he would have to take me to a residential area I went to the office to ask if we could have leeway with checkout time so he could leave the trailer, take me to Boulder, and then return to hook-up and pull out. I was told that if the trailer was not out by twelve it would be towed and it would be $25 dollars extra without exception. I admit I was very upset by the emergency at the time but I do understand the way businesses run. I would have gladly paid the $25 dollars but the callous approach left us both with a very bad taste. While hooking up the gentlemen in the golf ?carts came by and ask us if we were leaving (we were disconnecting utilities), and circled around twice more before we could pullout. The park is expensive $158.00/3 nights. It is called a resort, but does not have the amenities of a resort. It is good for an overnight stay when you have places to go. It is always full due to the lack of RV parks in the area therefor they don't need your business and it shows.

We have been staying here since 2002 and without a doubt some spots are better than others, and some spots cater to specific RVs better than others. This is true of most campgrounds. This year our spot was horrible with our rear entry as the last step was nearly impossible to navigate and we can't use a step stool with our dog. However, the site was plenty long and level and had plenty of room for our 36' triple slide Cougar 5th wheel. We've had better sites here, but didn't get our reservations in early enough to get the one we wanted! Anyone with a mid entry door would have been fine on this site and we are used to dealing with step height issues with our rear entry. The staff has always been friendly and courteous to us. There were plenty of local channels available and we bring our own Wifi as campgrounds often have limited or marginal access. It is one of the highest priced places we stay at each year but it's close and convenient to everywhere we want to be in the area. We will definitely be staying here in the future and would recommend this RV park to others.

Unfriendly staff, pool out of order our entire vacation, hot tub closed down earlier than what sign stated, overly priced, ongoing maintenance on our site and poor communication from staff. We were extremely disappointed with this place!! We would've definitely stayed at another place if we would've been informed of the pool not being in working condition. We had 4 children with us under the age of 6 that we paid extra for this place because of their pool. We should've been informed of the pool not working! We, in turn, had to pay other places with pools such as rec centers and other facilities all while still paying Dakota Ridge for their daily fee. Very disappointed we didn't receive a refund and owners are not willing to resolve issues. Would never stay there again as they ruined our vacation!!

Facility was clean, staff were very nice. Only negative to report during our stay was we had two rubber orange marker cones stolen. I use them to mark a slide out that has been walked into in the past. I have removable pipe insulator sleeves as bumpers on the slide edges along with the marker cones placed on the ground beneath the slide out. If you leave items outside your RV be sure they are secured to your RV. My location was E3 which is visible from the road. We did check with the staff to be sure they were not mistakenly picked up by the staff rather than stolen.....sorry to report they were stolen!

the bathrooms and washer/dryer area are wonderful. This is not a camperground this is an rv parking lot. There was no TV and in June the pool was "closed for the season" if you like to sit outside of your camper at all this is not the place unless you enjoy looking at your neighbors sewage hose. We were not informed the TV and pool were not available nor were we compensate $

This park is going through some changes. They changed the staff, who for the most part were very nice. They are removing most of the slabs on the sites that were cracking or not level . they are pouring new concrete on these sites! Great! The bad news is they do this while you are there. For the prices that they charge you would think that you were in for the time of your life, wrong! This park is too small for the big rigs of today. I have seen soo many people complain about there spot. This is a nice park, but it seems like the corporate owners could care less if you come back or not, because they are always full. That's a shame, this is such a nice area. NO POOL NO HOT TUB while I was there. The reck hall has one very old pool table, and some free weights, that's it. 16 days costed me 1100.00. I will never go back again.

It is very OVER priced. Almost $75.00 a night for a back in space, super odd staff that spends most of your check in time telling you what yon CANNOT do. After we paid they told us everything in the park that was shut down, didn't work or under repair. It seems that front desk thinks this is the greatest place EVER, however it is a average RV park with average service and average hook ups. The ONLY thing that is above average is the price.

A pretty good-sized community park. It is on the western edge of the metropolitan Denver city limits, at the base of the foothills. The staff was friendly, the clubhouse was bright and open. The land there is on the side/bottom of a small hill, so the campsites are not as level as we may have liked. With leveling blocks and such, we were able to nestle in pretty well. The restrooms were decent but the showers were cold, not something you want to experience when there is snow on the ground outside. At $50 a night, I would have expected steam in my shower stall. Instead, it was a quick in-and-out.

Extremely unfriendly staff. I was told I had to be guided into my site. Previous reviews state that the sites are very narrow, the reason for a guide. Well the guide did not do his job as he ran me into a tree limb. In order for me to move forward or back the limb had to be cut off the tree. My insurance said it was my fault because I was the driver. I get that but the park said oh well too bad. The next day the park was full and I experienced a low or high voltage on one leg of the 120 volt system. Shame on me for not having a surge/low voltage protector. I now have one but extensive damage was done to my Class A. Again the park management said oh well too bad. I guess the love of the almighty dollar is greater than taking care of their customers.

campground has tight pull-tru sites,concrete pads are only as wide as the coach, so when you step out of your coach you could be on unlevel ground. No cable & wi-fi was very poor . They have a no refund policy for early departure no matter the reason !!! Even if they rent out your site they still refuse to refund your payment !!!!!

Always enjoy staying here when I visit family in Boulder. Enjoy it's close proximity to my fav Red Rock park. Easy to walk to restaurants, convenient drive to shopping. Great hiking and trails just over the ridge, off sight. Friendly staff, always greet with a smile and work hard to accommodate your needs. Lovely common room to hang out in with friends or family. Spaces are a bit tight but you are in a city, and it's a busy, popular area. They helped me park my rig with no problem. Prices are high here as they are in most popular high tourist destinations, but it's worth it. Well maintained facilities and pretty campground with nice views nestled in the hills. This is my second stay here and I always look forward to returning.

There aren't many campgrounds in the Denver (I-70) area but Dakota is probably one of the nicest ones to stay at. We tried getting in another one but it was full, THANK GOODNESS! We pulled in around 7:30pm in hopes of finding something or we would've had to backtrack to who knows where. They actually had one available spot for a 30 footer so we got really lucky. Next morning, 8am, we went to check in and we asked for another night because we wanted to go to Rocky Mountain NP that day so we definitely needed another night. The park IS an hour and a half away and lots of traffic in Estes Park. We didn't wanna tote our trailer up there to a campground, we were close to burnout towing for two weeks through mountains. They weren't sure if it was possible but the gentleman who helped us really worked the system and got it all worked out for us. We had to wait for him to call us to let us know if we could stay so it was enough time for breakfast and by 9:00am he called and said we could stay on the site we had. He knew we wanted to get to the park soon, as he knew the distance we would be driving. We would've moved if we had to but he worked it out for us to stay in that spot. We were on with our day from that point forward. The staff at Dakota were all very friendly with smiles on their faces, it was a pleasure to meet them. Our site was good, it's totally what we needed but there was kind of a construction business right behind us and they started work about 8am and didn't stop until about 10pm. It wasn't overly loud or anything and there is brush and trees between us and them but they do keep their radio on and you can hear them talking and fussing at each other. Not that big of a deal but I'd stay on another row and have no view of them at all, if you're the type to make reservations. The bathroom was very nice and comfortable for showering. My son enjoyed the pool one evening. The whole campground was nice and clean. It was a short stay but we enjoyed it. I thought it was the perfect, last minute ending to our two and a half week trip and Dakota helped us out! I would stay here again to go to RMNP.
