Overall Rating

This campground generally gets very mixed reviews and we arrived with low expectations. It turned out to be a fairly nice, depending on what site you got. The campground is situated on a tiered hill and the sites on the top of the hill (12-25) have excellent views of the lake. Some of the sites on the lower side near the lake (roughly numbers 80-120) also have good views. However, some of the other sites near the back of the park do not have a view of the lake at all. I would recommend staying away from sites 1-8 which have a view of the boat ramp parking lot, and any site in the 50s which have a view of the main road. Like many others in the area, the trees in the campground were attacked by the pine bark beetle and cut down. That means you will not find a single tree in the campground and consequently there is no privacy between sites. Fortunately the stellar view makes up for it. There is not a designated campers beach, but the shore is sandy and the water shallow with easy access. Most of the sites are on the small side and there are only a handful that would fit any RV larger than 35'. The bathrooms do have free showers, but the facilities are older and not very clean. The best thing this campground has going for it is the view of the lake and the easy access for swimming and boating. Without those things I would have rated it much lower. The location is also nice as you are less than 10 miles from the west entrance to the Rocky Mountain National Park.
