“Won't allow tents on good sites”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We did not stay there because when I called to make a reservation I was told that they would not allow a tent on their electric sites on the river. I told them I was willing to pay the same as an RV but was told they absolutely will NOT allow a tent on those sites. Tent campers could stay on sites with no electricity on the river or they could stay on an electric site that is NOT on the river. Most campgrounds do not care whether people have an RV or a tent as long as you are paying the same money. Their website does not list this policy. When asked about the reason for this policy, the manager was VERY rude. I assume they do not like tent campers.

The major draw of camping here is that the lots along the river are quiet and shaded, hard to find that around here in summer. We stayed here for two nights, just using the spot as a base to see area attractions. Everyone was very helpful at arrival. Power, water pressure, and cable were all sufficient even during peak use. WiFi here is $1 per day and worked very well.

Room Tip: The sites on the river offer a bit of white noise to drown out cars passing by.

We stayed one night in a rustic camping cabin. The park is well kept up and the bathrooms are clean, as was the cabin. The cabin had a large fan, plus a heater, for use as needed. The river setting is beautiful, and there is no traffic noise. The only negative is that the door of the cabin had swollen and stuck whenever entering or leaving. Management knew this and told us about it. It seems like it would be repairable. This way, everyone woke up whenever someone went to the bathroom at night, because of the door scraping the floor. Also, a 25 dollar deposit is required on a camping cabin, which is kind of weird. Be sure it is taken off your bill the next morning before you leave. If I were camping, I would stay here again, especially if the door was fixed.

An overall spectacular experience at Riverview Rv Park. We pulled in several hours past office hours. Fortunately they knew we were coming so a couple of guys in a golf cart showed us to our space and helped us park in the dark. We realized the next morning that we were next to the office because we made our reservation that morning. They were booked for 2 days but then they moved us to a space next to The Big Thompson River. WOW! I can't say enough about how wonderful and peaceful it was. We relaxed, fished and relaxed some more. This rv park has full hookups for both 50 and 30 amps plus 20 tv channels and wireless internet. You get the best of both worlds here. The staff is professional and courteous. Actually more than that...they are simply nice and eager to provide good customer service! We would suggest to reserve early and get a space next to the river. The other spaces are a little tight. You will not regret this move. Spots 31 to 35 have a little deck that hangs over the river. Very cool. Spaces 23 & 24 have a little beach area perfect for fishing and if you have a back window in your rv your full view is the river! That's where we were and because of it stayed for 3 extra nights. Spaces 1-10 have a little rapid action in the river so it's noisier than the others. If that relaxes you then this where you want to be. We are going back this weekend and have reserved space #10 as it has everything...nice river sounds, great view and beach area for fishing. It was a toss up with the spaces with the decks. I think they refer to those as their premium river spaces. We brought our dogs with us and they even had a dog park. It worked out very well so they could get in a good run several times a day. The showers and laundry area are kept very clean and smell good. The last point I want to make is that the park is very secure. They have folks on duty 24 hours a day that make the rounds and have their eyes out. That's why we decided to rent a storage space there in lieu of Denver. We know that our rv and personal property are safe. This is one of the greatest camp sites in Colorado. The rates are good, the people nice, the camp clean and the best part is the views are wonderful. You can fish right out of your site. If you don't have an rv bring your tent or rent one of their cabins and you'll have one of the best vacations that you'll ever have.
