“Not Quite As Nice As It Could Be”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

Dakota Ridge came highly rated by AAA and appears to be quite nice from the street. However, upon check-in, we were told that cable TV is no longer provided and we found our rented space to be a bit dull and crowded. On the positive side, the showers were quite nice and the wifi connection was strong. We were able to catch up on laundry and other RV service essentials at the park. There is a pub close by for a burger, but the walk up the street was treacherous due to lack of any sidewalks or bike path. Overall, I guess we were just hoping for a more picturesque setting in Golden, CO.

Sites are door side to door side! My neighbor's door opened 12' across from mine. The opposite side window was 4' from my neighbors. Two hours of rain resulted in a 3" puddle outside my door for two days. No privacy! Dog walk on side of hill! No cable! East side next to industrial site that starts loudly @ 6:00 AM. Discounted(??) rate of $300 for a week! The park spends it money on a great ad in Trailer Life ETC, however, ad is miss-leading! We will never stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here in June and quite frankly I can't understand why this place is busy. Some of the site border a loud construction mfg building and most if not all sit right on top of one another. The front desk person who assisted us was rude initially. We thought maybe she was having a bad day. Not so. The next three interactions we had with her got worse. Dogs barking, kids screaming, bikes everywhere. I really think there are better places to stay. Overpriced and not a place I would recommend anyone to stay.

We recently spent two nights at Dakota Ridge RV Park in Golden, Colorado. It's close to the Miller Coors Brewery that offers tours and samples, and a short drive to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. The town of Golden celebrates Buffalo Bill Days at the end of July, so we were there for the last weekend of the celebration. Golden is also the home of the Buffalo Bill Museum as well as his gravesite.

Dakota Ridge is pretty basic as far as RV Parks go. It had a small pool and free Wi-Fi which was very slow and unavailable a good deal of the time we tried to use it. We reserved a pull-thru spot, but they mixed up our reservation, and we ended up with a back-in spot on the edge of a cliff. Down below us was some sort of business with it's supply yard in the back, so our site was very noisy with lots of clanging of metal and pipes. Pets were allowed and there was a dog walking area provided. We were warned about the presence of rattlesnakes in the campground which we've never encountered before, so we didn't take walks as we usually would.

Overall, I feel it was a little pricey considering the lack of amenities and the spot we were assigned. The other RV Campgrounds owned by this same company are much better. I would recommend staying here if you can't find another RV park in the area.
