“Very pretty and great access, but not big rig friendly”

Reviewed Sep 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We would stay here again, mostly due to the accessibility to Denver and Summit County. However, the slots are really narrow, especially for a rig with two slides. Ours, slot 16, which is next to a slight inclined bank, seemed particularly narrow as we lost some of the width to the hill so that our outside sitting area was only as wi... more

“Pleasant setting in the pines but too close to I-70”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2017

Overall Rating

This park is owned by the city of Denver and is touted as “America’s first motor-camping area”, built in 1918. Sites are a mixture of RV and tent-only, and not really big rig friendly as there are lots of trees, steep roads, and tight turns. We were lucky to get one of only a few full hookup sites as we needed to dump our tanks. The f... more

“Good Location”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2017

Overall Rating

We were greated by the camp host; both were friendly and helped us get to our site. We stayed in site 21. It is a nose low and slightly tilted to the right site. It is stated as a pull through. I would call it more of a pull off the side of the road. The hookups are up a small hill about 20ft away from the rig. We had good water and ... more

“Attractive wooded campground, but RV sites vary widely in size and hookups.”

Reviewed Jul 03, 2017

Overall Rating

We found this to be a nice, attractive campground, but then again we like wooded/natural settings more than rows of concrete. We only had a 30-amp connection, but while it was hot in Denver, this park is 2,000 feet higher and the air was cool enough that we didn't need our air conditioners. We had no sewer connection, but since we were... more

“Peaceful Retreat Near Golden, CO”

Reviewed Nov 19, 2015

Overall Rating

We absolutely loved Chief Hosa Campground. We stayed here for the maximum allowed two week time period, right before they closed for the season. It's a large tree-filled park and we really enjoyed our entire time there. We did have one of the few (3) sites with full hook ups right next to the shower rooms. I agree with the other review... more

“Scenic and affordable, but you don't come here for the ammenties”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2015

Overall Rating

The reason I choose to give this park 4 stars is the showers: they are coin operated and a pain in the rear. You can only insert one quarter at a time, and have to wait for the water to run out before you insert the next. There are also no laundry facilities on site, which isn't a deal breaker, but gives you an idea of the amenities ... more

“Not Safe for Dogs ”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2018

Overall Rating

I secured tent site T-9 as I've always secured this particular site. I have used this campground on repeat occasions yearly. This last visit I checked in for my site at T-9, and the whole grounds on which this site sits, was completely covered in Foxtails. For those who do not know what Foxtails are they are extremely dangerous to Dogs... more
