OK people when you read the other reviews that are bad look at the dates , this place has been under new management since April 2020 ,we were here in September Dawn and her husband Earl are super friendly this place is a great deal. if you were to try to book a Reservation at any of the other campgrounds they charge you for everything and you can’t have anything outside of your rig it’s ridiculous how strict they are. this place is super laid-back and Dawn and Earl drive around in their cart and visit with everybody Since Dawn and Earl took over Earl has been fixing and renovating and upgrading everything in the campground it continually gets better and they’re not slowing down it’s a great hideaway right out of Glenwood Springs tucked in a small canyon it makes a great stop over place we walked over to the tent sites and they are just as good as the Rv spots and if your tent camping they have Hot showers and bathrooms and laundry area. keep an eye on this place over the next couple years for all the improvements. the secrets out make sure to tell them you Justin recommended it Justin & Tami

Great little spot nestled away in cozy little canyon in the foothills north of I-70. A rustic setting along-side a pretty little and a soothing to listen to creek. The lots are nestled in and nicely sized. Both Earl and Dawn are enthusiastic camp hosts and were always checking in to see if we needed anything. The only downside is that it's a little pricey and cellular coverage is marginal. It would be good if they boosted their WiFi internet signal to make up for the lack of cellular coverage. With all that said, I would highly recommend this campground for great family relaxation, or just a simple quiet get-away.

We just had our church camp retreat here and it was amazing! The place was beautiful and the cabins we stayed in were comfortable and very cute! Best part of it all was how friendly, honest, and down to earth the owners and staff were. That week was when Glenwood Canyon had a mud slide and they were so understanding and caring for the day we couldn’t show up and even let us stay a little longer on check out day. Any questions we had got answered and anything we needed they tried to provide. Elk Creek Camp is an amazing place and their staff is even better! Would 100% recommend!

Granted, it was the last day of the season and we got a primo spot on the creek, but goodness.....trash dumpster overflowing. Bathroom trash not collected for a long time. We have stayed in better locations and wonder if it might be better in the summer with the creek close by. Just kind a run down place which I see they are trying to fix with new fire pits. Such potential but too much money!

It was getting late in the day, saw the sign off the highway and thought why not. Oh dear, wish we had read the reviews - everything that wknielson said was true. $60 -you've got to be kidding, perhaps we were missing something but I don't think so.
