This used to be a favorite spot of ours. This last stay in December will be our last at Dakota Ridge. What we found were non-stop partiers ("moving to Colorado"), constant dog barking, loud music, very old and not well kept RV's, drunks who walk the park slurring words at the other guests, and a staff that is only interested...

Best location if you want to visit Denver, Good Sam's , we have stayed here a couple of times super staff, little hilly, prices are a little higher than some we have visited but supply and demand, plus the location, we think it's a great park, plan to visit it again.

This is a very expensive park rated $60.00 with Good Sam discount. I reserved my site bases on an overrating from Good Sam. I won't make that mistake again. This park is built on a steep hill with narrow windy roads. This place was built for older RVs and trailers. I could not level my motorhome and needed a ladder... More

The park is clean, the amenities good and it's in a great location. However, the roads and sites are narrow making it hard to maneuver around. The cement slabs are uneven and the picnic tables a hazard as they are not bolted down. No cable and wi-fi was slow. This was the most expensive park we stayed in during our... More

This park is pricey but I had to call 3 in the Golden area before I found a vacancy. The pads are cement but very narrow and uneven. Don't sit at the picnic table as it almost flipped over on me as it is not fastened to the ground in any way. There was a bit of grass but very... More

This is a pricey park to stay in and I will proubably stay there again because it is a good place to get acclimated to altitude before heading into the mountains. I found getting into the park confusing and once there the roads were narrow and turns tight there was no cable and the wifi did not work.

We have camped here for several years and it just disappoints us more and more. $140 for 2 nights with Good Sam. This time site was so uneven! 2 blocks under wheels on cement slab, picnic table couldn't set down glass without falling over. Sprinklers put water spots all over truck and 5th wheel. Problem is other camp grounds in... More

Very rigid on payment but that is because there are not a lot of options in this desirable town. Campground very clean as are the bathrooms and grounds. Make sure you ask for a shaded site or RV will bake. Biggest complaint is the 'heated' pool which is very cold. I heard many people complain. I just wish they wouldn't... More

Dakota Ridge is without a doubt one of my favorite Colorado RV Parks! It's always clean and has a friendly staff, it's like coming home! You have easy freeway and city accessibility and also a ton of shopping and dining all close by. It's not inexpensive but what do you do?

If Denver is your stop, then this is the place you want. That said, it may not ever make your top ten list if you have had an RV for three or four years. We've been RV'ing for ten years and it won't be on ours in spite of 10-10-9 Good Sam rating. It's a little tight and due to... More
