I honestly feel bad giving a negative review, but I need to be honest for other potential vacationers... I stayed in the Larkspur room for 2 nights as I explored the western side of RMNP. Lady was friendly when we checked in. I've never stayed at this type of property before (a place that offered camping, etc), so I wasn't... More

Campground was very loud on a Friday night. Our friends and their two small children were kept up all night. Thankfully, they saved us from the same fate on Saturday--we were meeting up with them. Campground manager was unyielding in offering a refund due to the noise issue and was rude about it.

We were able to get RV reservations with full hookups for two nights. The resort has accommodations for tents as well as RVs, with meticulously kept Restrooms, Showers and grounds. It is amazingly well kept for the large number of people who are there. There are lots of activities for kids which we think would appeal to our grandchildren. The... More

We booked this room on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park. This hotel/resort is located 1 mile down a dirt/gravel road from the main highway 34 and about 2 miles north of the Lake village. Our room was attached to the building where you register It was nice and spacious, a bit dated but that was OK. We were... More

I booked a spot months and months in advance and was placed in the back lot, where the full hook-ups were lined up in 3 rows, all about 20 feet apart, no vegetation, and your picnic table is adjacent to your neighbor's septic hose. The photos on the website are no where to be seen. The entire area has been... More

We camped here for two week-day nights in a tent in July. I think the place is over priced, but the campground was pretty full, so the rates are probably okay for the market. The mens bathroom in the main building needs some maintenance, but it was clean and there were enough showers and toilet stalls. The staff was very... More

This place was fine, but nothing special. I have a four-year-old, and I got tired of walking the half-mile round trip to the bathroom. I also got tired of the steady stream of heavy vehicles flowing past our campsite -- RVs, horse trailers, trucks, it was neverending! Our campsite (# 52) was fine -- pretty good shielding from neighbors on... More

The lady I talked to when I made my reservations was the only nice staff member I talked to in the whole place. First of all, there is only wi-fi near the bathrooms, up by the front and VERY far from most of the campsites. There is not even a picnic table to sit at there if you want to... More

We stayed 2 nights in "The Hideout" camper cabin and loved it! Complete with hummingbirds, wildflowers, petting zoo, and mountain views, it was magical for us and the kids. Our cabin was slightly larger than what I consider average and surrounded by wildflowers. There was a hammock outside our cabin, which was fun to swing in and watch the hummingbirds... More

Our 8 day stay started off with 2 free pancake tickets while there was four in our party and each person in the party was supposed to get one. Then come to find out you are only able to keep two of your horses at your campsite in eye view while your other horses are put up to half a... More
