Great secure place. But be aware.
Great place to stop if you need to be in the Boulder/Denver area. Secure, clean and easy enough to get to. I wasn’t met by anyone when coming in and I wasn’t offered any help. I will say I was super tired and the whole purpose of staying here was to charge my lithium batteries.
They have an electrical post with 2 pairs of 15 amp outlets. Only the left appeared to have a GFCI on it, so knowing that my trailer trips those, I plugged it in to the left upper since it appeared to be 2 separate outlets.
I used a 30a to 15a dog bone. I had used this at my last plug in while in CA. I know it works. As soon as I pushed it in, the green light would go to red. In otherwords, the GFCI tripped. I tried that several times, had to reset on both sides. It didn’t make sense to me, but maybe they are wiring them differently now for code.
I didn’t get an offer to be right out to help or “Let me call my electrician” texts. It was late and I knew I had to move on if I wanted to get a decent place to charge. I never received an offer for a refund, so that was poopy. As a former Hipcamp Host that’s the first thing I would have said along with sorry & safe travels. Lesson learned.

Convenient camp near everything!
We stayed extra days because we enjoyed this campground so much! Being in this neighborhood allowed us to visit downtown Denver, Boulder, Estes Park, and Golden. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood. The big tree is a little low hanging so just be aware if you have a tall rig. Our dogs loved the astroturf pads. Fence and gated entry offered secure privacy. Water pump on site worked well. We used our adapter and surge protector with the 110 outlets and everything worked great. However, we were here during late Sept/early October and we didn’t run AC a single time, only (gas powered) heat in the evenings.

It was nice and quiet for an overnight stay. We were quite comfortable.

Awesome camping near Denver w/dogs!
We loved staying at this peaceful neighborhood campground as we explored Denver & the surrounding area. It was our first time in the state and we loved having a great home base to come back to after all our adventures. The dogs loved it, and we loved being able to walk them around the neighborhood, and also around Erie Lake (5 min drive). Loved that it was fully fenced in and graveled. The space felt very private even when shared with other RV campers. Most mornings we enjoyed seeing hot air balloons launch in the field behind.
While in town- we visited Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater, Estes Park, Boulder, Golden, and downtown Denver. If you stay here be sure to eat at Organic Sandwich Co., it’s the bomb!!! OTIS Craft Collective, City ‘o City, & Watercourse were also quality spots to grab food and/or coffee! Brownfield’s at Estes Park is the best place to buy souvenirs. The local Sprouts and King Soopers were great grocery stores with a big selection. I also recommend Bamboo Forest, across from Sprouts, to get a massage.
