This review is from a recent experience at the Elk Meadows Lodge and RV Resort located in Estes Park, Colorado. We had previously stayed at this resort and were hoping to recap some pleasant memories from the past. Not to be so. We had a family gathering of 3 families and chose to have an RV site as well as an adjoining cabin. We arrived and set up camp, enjoyed a fun family evening and then set off to bed. That is when it all went south. The cabin was overrun by bedbugs and mites. Our 1 and 3 year old granddaughters were covered and were of course scared and upset. Their parents too now clearly were experiencing similar issues with the bugs. Literally, there were so many, they were climbing the walls. At 3:30 in the morning, there was no alternative but to take the family to the bathhouse, strip them clean of all infested garments, bathe them, and then find alternative clothing. EVERYTHING in the cabin had to be removed, cleaned, or washed to attempt to rid the family and possessions of these horrible parasites. Of course, we needed some help and immediately called the “Emergency” number listed on our check-in materials. What? No answer. Let’s try again. VOICE MAIL? Yes, this was the response from the emergency number. Six attempts later, we finally got a reply. The reply came with sympathy but no support. “Stop by in the morning after 8:00 and we will see what we can do.” Are you kidding me? This is how they handle an emergency? Just think….. So the next morning, I was given some change to wash/dry our clothes and the cabin was refunded as it was non-usable. Washing clothes took the better part of the morning as everything needed to be cleaned. So much for our Estes Park plans. Following the washing session, we decided as a family that the ten of us could not stay in the trailer and that we would have to go home. We were offered a Tee-Pee as a compensation for the bugs. Understand you have to have your own bedding? Oh that’s right, it was full of bugs from the cabin. Their reply “We have some old sleeping bags that someone left”. Their solution. I asked for an obvious refund. Their maintenance issue had caused us to leave. No word from the owner. They replied, “Well, he is in the canyon and can’t be reached.” For what it's worth, cell service is strong throughout the canyon and front range. Well, he is in meetings and asked not to be bothered. (I guess we are a bother when his cabins are full of bugs). We NEVER had a chance to discuss the issue with him. The staff also, refused to communicate with us for the next several days as we tried to move the process forward for a possible refund and compensation for lost items. We had to leave our “Pak-N-Play” for obvious reasons. Again the management’s reply “Well, we emailed him and left a voice message”…. Little effort on the part of the staff but NO EFFORT from the owner. How sad. One begins to see why the reviews are so low. I asked to talk to the owner. Finally, we have had to go through our credit card company to protest this charge. As of today, there has been NO RESPONSE from Elk Meadows as well. Thank goodness for the support we received from the card company. Things happen. I understand that. But it is how businesses respond that makes them poor, good, or great. Sadly we experienced how “POORLY” Elk Meadows handles situations. They don’t. Take this for what it is. You may enjoy your stay there but understand if you have issues, you may be on your own. You decide on your next trip. There certainly are other choices as well as the National Park. Read the other reviews and I am guessing you may make other choices. I know we are done with Elk Meadows and will certainly network with other RV’rs as we can. Signed, What bugs me

Nice park. But, a few miles from the beautiful national park, you’re not here for the RV park. While we were out site seeing, staff did take our picnic table for another camper. But when confronted (politely), they brought us another table. We love to put up our doggy fence, but read the camp rules, which prohibit dog fences or enclosures. So, when the camper next to us (on our last day there) put up their pet enclosure, we were surprised that no camp staff enforced the rules (even if we enjoyed visiting with their pups). Cable TV, water pressure, camp staff, all great. We were here for three days, on the way to Yellowstone, for another week stop, before heading back home to Florida.

Horrible experience. Staff is horrible to deal with and only likes to argue with customers if you have anything wrong. Bathroom wasn’t touched in 5 days. One hot tub broken other is open but filthy! Small sites with maybe 4 feet and we are sharing that space with another camper! Plus this space is on an incline!!! They refuse to move or refund campers and say sites are chosen on length when smaller campers have huge sites. We camp a lot and have NEVER had this bad of an experience anywhere. Do not stay here!

Great site as a base camp for activities in Rocky Mountain National Park. One mile from the entrance. Gorgeous views!! Sites were fairly level and all gravel. Very dusty during our stay, but that is to be expected. They advertise WiFi but that’s a joke. Even cell reception is hit or miss, but your in the Rocky Mountains. Staff was amazing. So friendly and helpful! Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for a 7 night stay. The campground is nice and the views are incredible. Rocky Mountain National Park is very close and the hiking is amazing. The campground does not have many trees or much grass. It did not get very warm while we stayed, so not having trees was not a huge deal. The local shopping area is nice with great restaurants and coffee shops. Stop by Kind Coffee when you are in town. Our spot was close to the office and the wifi was good. There were lots of wifi routers around the park to assist.

Nice place to stay. However, if you want to leave a day early., they will not refund you the money for that day, Which I think is very unfair.

Elk Meadow is a big facility with huge appeal and a great view of the mountains that we all came to see. The facility is pretty complete and there are lots of employees running around keeping things up. I was put out by a myriad of petty rules and a WIFI that really can't be called WIFI. You can stand next to the repeater or next to the office and still not get on the internet. You are not allowed to smoke pot on the grounds (which I agree with) but there is a sign on every door to every bathroom, and amenity in the park, enough already. You are not allowed to wash your rig without permission and a $15 charge. Finally you are not allowed to use detergent pods in OUR washers.

I recently stayed here for four nights. Was greeted on my arrival after 5 days of driving to get there with you are here early (11:30) so pay $25 to check in or $10 to sit in your rv until check-in time OR get off the property. The campground was 2/3 empty and I have never been treated so badly. Also, there was no real grass here....just dirt and gravel. However, you are not allowed to use a mat because it will kill the grass???? The cable did not work for me or my neighbor. The view was nice but I will not be coming back.

Had a wonderful stay, views from F-18 was awesome. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Only one issue, F-18 isn't that level, had my front wheels off the ground with blocks under levelers to get it level. Place is located a mile from the Rocky Mountain National Park, need to have an Access Pass. Disabled Vets can get a free pass, just show park ranger your I'D and VA disability rating letter. Park Rangers were very friendly also. Overall a great place to stay.

We were scheduled to stay at another RV park, but I messed up on the arrival date. We called this RV park and they were able to fit us in on the busiest weekend of the year. (Labor Day). We ended up cancelling are reservations at the other park and staying here for the week.The staff has been wonderful from the front desk to the ground crew. Bath rooms and showers were very clean. Nice Pool, nice dog park. The view of the mountains from this park is breathe taking. We will be back.

I made reservations for this park w/o first doing any research. I hope you don't make the same mistake. There are so many negative reviews that I am not sure why I ignored them. Please don't do the same. The photos on their web site many be somewhat deceptive. And, all the negative reviews can't be all wrong. Before making your reservation, go to Google Maps and take a look at this park. It looks like a sand lot with scarcely a blade of grass or any trees. If you don't mind camping in a sand lot, go for it. Also, if you ever make a reservation and decide to cancel, you will not get one cent back. They certainly are greedy, and maybe a tad unethical. I am surprised at the Good Sam rating.

I give this campground zero stars. Be careful if you make a reservation here. We planned on camping for my nephews graduation. I was nine hours from home when THEY called ME and cancelled my reservation because the roads were impassable. I was disappointed and asked if they would refund my full payment as I did not cancel. They were very rude and said "WE do not refund! We can re-schedule your stay." I am from St. Louis, I doubt that my nephew will be graduating again at a later date. I ended up disputing the charge on my credit card and my trip was completely ruined. When I asked why there would be no refund when THEY cancelled she said "It's not our fault that it snowed" I told her that it was DEFINITELY not my fault and I should not be penalized as I was on my way there. They wouldn't budge and were very rude. Good Sam should probably remove them from their status as they are not a good representative of where to stay in Colorado, nor a good example to be linked to with this club.

This campground is very close to Rocky Mountain National Park. That is where the positives end, though. We arrived in late June to learn that 2 of the three bathhouses were closed. They have 3 restrooms for the whole campground, which was not near enough. The sites are cut into a hillside, so I do expect that they won't be 100% level, but our site was far from level and so narrow we could only place our picnic table either in front of or behind the coach. They had 6 port-a-potties for people to use, which I refuse to use. Also, the wifi is unusable. They said that a contractor was supposed to have the remodel of the 2nd bathhouse done by June 1st, but we arrived around the 25th and it was not touched during our 4 night stay. They did charge the full price though for our stay despite the inadequacies of the campground. We will NEVER stay here again. Ever.

We stay here in July for an extended stay a week or more . We stayed in a 40 foot a class . We absolutely loved this park. very pet friendly nice dog run, clean pool, bathhouses were clean, staff friendly and helpful. Bad side!!! which could not be helped, there was a state wide burning ban!!! Understandable!! so no open fires but we could use our gas grill. Windy another thing that the camp ground could not help so no canopies or pop up tents due to them flying around and the possibilities of hurting someone or damaging another Rv . Dusty yes ok come on people we are in the west !! Over all our stay was excellent we had fun all the same. Enjoyed our stay and will return again !! Thank you elk meadows Rv resort for such a great stay !!??

We unfortunately stayed at this campground for five nights, only because all the other campgrounds were sold out. The people at the desk were extremely rude both times I was in the office. (two different women). We were first given a campsite that backed within a few feet from a camper in the back. We were excited to just get a new camper with a big rear window and what we saw out the window was another camper a few feet away!! That camper had its awning out and it nearly hit the camper next to it so don't bother with awnings--there is no room. It was the worst campsite we have ever had in our 30+ years of camping with very close campers on each side and the back!! I went to the office the next morning and asked if we could change since there were empty campsites and she started yelling at me! She eventually did move us (very reluctantly!) to a pull through site that was better since we had no one behind us and there was more room on the sides. However, there are no paved roads in the campground and the wind was blowing so it was constant dust. We love to sit out while we camp but we never even got our chairs out because of the dust. All in all, it was a terrible experience!

Elk Meadow is not an RV "resort", but rather is nothing more than a campground for short and long term camping although it is close to Rocky Mountain National Park. The women in the registration office were curt bordering on rude. The Park entrance, roads, and sites are gravel on top of dirt, and is dusty when RVs and vehicles drive through the park. Most of the sites were built on sloping terrain. The sites are very un-level making it virtually impossible to level any RV, and the women in the registration office acted very indifferent when I told them how un-level my site and other sites were. However, the cable TV reception is very good, and the WiFi signal is strong. I would choose to stay at another RV park nearby before I would stay at Elk Meadow again.

This is no more than a poorly maintained gravel parking lot with a view. Sites are tilted, rutted and generally require lots of ramping and leveling. The main bathrooms and showers have been closed for at least six months for 'renovations', the cable TV doesn't work, the desk help is surly, and the price is outrageous at $65. Good Sam needs to look hard at this place and at the reviews. Also, I was asked for my driver's license when paying. The desk "help" said is was because of Homeland Security, which is a large load of horse hockey. In 20 years of RVing, I've never been asked for it. No discount for lack of services or inconvenience. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

It was like camping in a dust bowl. Restrooms out of order, garbage dumpsters were full, grassy areas overgrown and not cut. It says it has a store and that consists of firewood and ice. Charged 5.00 per day for the extra vehicle in tow. They need to level the campsites. I would pick another place to stay next time.

Very disappointed for the money. Should be named "dust bowl park". Facilities are dated and in need of renovations. Not clear if anyone is managing this park. Definitely not a "resort". WiFi is an over-statement. Not good value for the money. Only redeeming quality are the vistas.

Let me start with the positive: We stayed in the TeePees and they were really fun. The camp ground is beautiful. And the pool opened like they advertised. Negative: 1.I asked when I made the reservation and again when I was checking in if the teepees were waterproof. The receptionist and the man showing us our site assured me they were-even though there is a BIG hole in the top! Sure enough it rained while we were gone site seeing and when we came back my husbands pillow and sleeping bag were really WET! And it got really cold that night-not a fun combo. I understand they are authentic, but I feel like they should let their customers know there is a chance rain can get in so we can arrange the TP accordingly if rain is forecasted. 2.I don't understand how in the beginning of camping season and paying holiday rates they don't have the bathrooms up and working! To only have one working bathroom for the entire campsite-and its CLEAR across the park was a pain. 3. We were told we would have water at our site-and didnt. We asked and the guy said he would turn it on-but it wasn't on Friday thru Monday. 4.Another minor complaint is that they charge a high rate to stay in the TP-yet they charge you a DOLLAR to play mini golf!?! They can't include that in the price to stay at the camp ground? There were rocks all over the course and poop in all the holes. UMM gross-we had no bathrooms or running water to wash our hands!. So Im not sure what the fee goes to. 5. The wifi was broken too when we got there. I'm not normally one to complain, but I feel like these are worthy enough to be made aware of. We tried to talk to someone in the office first, but they didnt seem to care. When charging higher holiday rates I expect more from the site. I also feel like they should be more honest and warn ppl about the chance of rain getting in the teepees instead of saying they are 100%waterproof.

The Good Sam rating resulted in our selection of this park, along with its location so near Rocky Mountain National Park. The route to the RV park was the most challenging of our trip. When I mentioned it to the clerk, she said a lot of people told them this, yet the website offers no alternate routes. The campground is nothing but dust, The sites are not at all level and a challenge to set up. We didn't even approach the restrooms because of the condition of the grounds and every building we saw. No landscaping. Nothing attractive about this campground. Not a place we wanted to sit outside due to the dust and noise from the nearby road. The management needs to attend to maintenance, appearance, and site conditions. We have been travelling seven months, stayed in dozens of campgrounds, rely extensively on Good Sam, and were very disappointed. All this for a rate 50% higher than almost every campground we stayed in for the entire trip.

DIRT ROADS so dust ALL the time. Many unlevel sites. Upper bath house closed. We are 45' motorhome and they put us in 30 amp! They acknowledged their error with our rez and apologized but offered nothing more. Office mgr checked and said there wasn't anyone in 50amp to switch us with. Told us 40' and over go in 50amp but that day a 38' mh with one a/c pulled in to the 50amp row. And then they departed the same day as us! The campground was never full the four nights we stayed. Many rigs departed with us on Sunday. We asked if we could depart at noon rather than 11 and were told for $25 we could stay until 2pm. This campground just wants money. No customer service. They need to do some grading to level the tiered sites and then re-gravel. Seems the owner is just taking profit and not re-investing. VERY unhappy with our stay. Staff apologetic but owner could care less.

Save your money. They will not give any refunds, at all. Way over priced. At 65 per night,,, never again. I was told, they charge extra just for you to grill a burgar, to have a pet, even if a friend comes to visit. Did not enjoy stay.

The campground is at a great location only 1 mile to the entrance of RMNP. The staff was great and very friendly and always has entertainment on Friday and Saturday . Very large sites and the restrooms / showers are very clean . The campground has a swimming pool and above ground hot tub . Had a great stay there and will go back in the future.

This was our first time staying at Elk Meadows. Prior to that we had camped in Rocky Mountain National Park but decided this year we wanted a full service RV experience. Overall we were very pleased with our stay at Elk Meadows. The campground is kept very clean. We were not able to go into the Lodge, where they have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. The Lodge was closed during our 5 day stay. But the swimming pool was kept in excellent condition. Every site has a view of the mountains and we were able to enjoy Longs Peak from our kitchen window. We will definitely be return guests next year.

We were very disappointed in the campground. The bathrooms that were in the middle of the camp ground were not open. We also had to pay extra to have our motorcycle. We have camped in many states without a charge for a motorcycle. We have stayed here before and had a better experience. We stayed in a rv in a pull through site.
