“OK for a night or 2”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites vary quite a bit in size, ease of access and ease of leveling. Loop roads are narrow with some steep drop offs. OK for tents and small to mid size units. We saw a large unit really have to maneuver just to get around the corners without going in a culvert. Most sites have little to no shade. Electric came in handy for that reason... more

“Great experience ”

Reviewed Aug 18, 2018

Overall Rating

Loved the experience of one of our first state parks. We had electric only and it worked out well. Right across from small laundry and showers. Showers were roomy and clean (.50 for 3 minutes, .75 for 4 1/2). We had a very nice pull through that was very roomy with table and fire pit although no fires were allowed. Sites level and eas... more

“Nice park with great views and hiking trails.”

Reviewed Aug 15, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a great place to stop overnight because it allowed me to go into town and buy groceries and fuel then get a good night sleep. The park was quiet and well maintained. They have bathrooms for men, women and family. Just out of curiosity I looked in the family and it was much nicer than the men's room. I was able to get T-Mobile ... more

“Very clean”

Reviewed Jul 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Coming from Texas, we’ve been very impressed by the Colorado state parks. Trinidad SP was very clean and well maintained. We used the coin laundry as well as the dish washing station. The playground was great for the kids. There is not much shade, but fortunately it wasn’t too hot while we were there and there was a nice breeze. Site 1... more

“Decent Colorado State Park”

Reviewed Jul 10, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here from 8-15 July 2018 and it was hot, hot, hot. As other reviewers have said shade is pretty sparse here and site 4 is definitely lacking in any natural shade. While site 4 lacks shade, it does have full hookups, a gravel pad, steel fire ring and a picnic table. Site 4 is a back-in site and the nose of your rig will b... more

“Roads are a little tricky”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2018

Overall Rating

We were looking for a layover spot heading into the Denver area because of a high wind advisory. Site 61 was one of only 2 or 3 pull throughs and an easy in and out. Also in mid-April the full sun was appreciated. There were bear signs within the campground (recent scat and scratchings) but we didn't encounter any. What was tricky was... more

Everything about this park was clean and well-maintained. I was very impressed with the investment into and design of the overall park. The park offers a very clean bathroom facility and coin operated showers. There is also a laundry room available. Also, there is a volleyball court, kids' playground, and an amphitheater. Th... more

"I don't like this at all," was my wife's reaction as we drove to the South Campground, affixed to the opposite side of the impoundment created by this "state park that's based around a dam" oxymoron in my book. I agreed, as the dam is a bit ugly but lets not get all mother nature here, I mean, it's just a state park meant to preserve ... more

Reviewed Jan 15, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here in July of 2016, and found to be a well maintained, but somewhat busy state park Our stay spanned both the weekend and weekdays so we got to see the park during both times. Weekends are packed which meant a lot of families, small children, dogs, noise, and some late-night parties. Come Monday the campground empties out a... more

This is our 2nd campground to stay at with our motorhome. We arrived at night and could barely see a thing with no moon to help us. Fortunately we managed to find a spot and parked for the evening.
