“Good location close to Fort Collins, grass pretty tall all over, no cell coverage, great lake”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2018

Overall Rating

For the money, this is probably the best place you can stay visiting Fort Collins. We did get a FHU 50amp spot, but those are pretty few in this park. RV park itself is quite large and you can do reservation online and choose a spot. The grass was pretty tall all around and I think that was on purpose, but just keep an eye out with ... more

“Nice campground, close-ish to town ”

Reviewed Nov 08, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice level pull-through site with big picnic table and fire ring. Site are decently spaced apart from each other, though we were there in non-peak time and there weren't many others there at all. The showers and bathrooms were clean - note that showers do require tokens to operate. When looking for a site online, we chose what we thoug... more

“Easy access to boating, hiking, and biking”

Reviewed Aug 21, 2017

Overall Rating

We went to Horsetooth Reservoir for the boat access. While our expectations were low, the campground was in a beautiful location sitting on the shore of the reservoir. To this point we had been spoiled by the Colorado State Park system, so it was notably not as clean or well maintained as previous campgrounds. However, the location was... more

This is our second visit to the beautiful Horsetooth Reservoir. Last year we spent the day here and checked out the campsites for future trips and this year we are thrilled to actually stay here! We were greeted by about 15 deer on our way to this campground. There were also lots of geese, and a variety of birds! Our campsite was ... more

“Water, Camping and Close To Town - Nice But Not Necessarily Peaceful”

Reviewed May 25, 2016

Overall Rating

Overview Our first trip and we enjoyed our visit and would stay here again mid-week. The surrounding area and access made it a great stay. Also, the good cell coverage allowed us to get a little work done. Sites are a bit pricey as you must also add a $7 daily park fee to $25 nightly fee. Full hook-ups are $30. Review of the ... more

“This place was just a little weird for us. ”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2015

Overall Rating

It is obviously very popular and very heavily used by locals for access to the lake. Tight interior roads for large RV's. We saw several RVs just back up rather than try to make some of the tight turns. Lots of boulders to try and avoid when backing into the site. It was also really noisy. The sites themselves were level and the utilit... more
