I've spent two nights at Olive Ridge camping with my nephews and their parents and have no complaints. Olive Ridge is a pleasant campground in an open Ponderosa Pine - Doug Fir forest. The sites are large so you are not too close to other people. I give it thumbs-up for kid friendliness --my nephews enjoyed playing on rocks and... More

We just got back from spending 3 nights at Olive Ridge. It was a very good experience. The hosts were very nice and friendly and did a great job of keeping the bathrooms stocked and cleaned. They were definitely the cleanest ones I have experienced. The campgrounds were spaced nicely apart and well marked.

We recently camped at Olive Ridge and had a great time. We drove through the campground twice, noticing that a lot of sites are close to others, without much privacy.

We were reminded of the rules three times despite not breaking any, and were told that we are not... More

I went with my husband, young son and 4 other friends to this campground. It is only about 20 miles away from Estes Park and the National Park Entrance, but easily accessible. Where the National Park campgrounds were tired and worn looking, with heavy pine beetle damage, this park was shady with big camp sites and very friendly staff. We... More

Olive Ridge is a camping site that is located between Allens Park and Meeker CO. At this place they have the most racist rangers in the State. We are a family of Mexican-Americans who always follows the law and we are very respectful to every person we encounter but apparently the rangers at this camp site have a not written... More
