Spaces too close together. We prefer nearby and larger Spruce Lake RV Park, with all the same local amenities mentioned in the article.
I notice he doesn’t tell you a river front site is $75.00 a night ! Not my budget. I live in Colorado (Western Slope) and it is no longer paradise. Our lovely legislators and governors have been greedy big government types for years and consequently you can’t turn around without paying a fee to someone for something. After you pay a day use fee in state parks you then need to pay a fee, in addition, to camp, and another if you have a toad or trailer. A fishing license also requires a $10.00 Wildlife stamp ,which is also required to just be in certain areas.It is basically just an extra fee to look at the land and any critters passing by. I could go on, but you need to experience for yourself to believe it. Check out some of the fees as you make your mandatory reservation.
It should be mentioned that you will need a timed-entry pass to enter Rocky Mtn National Park. These passes may be purchased at recreation.gov.
