There aren't many campgrounds in the Denver (I-70) area but Dakota is probably one of the nicest ones to stay at. We tried getting in another one but it was full, THANK GOODNESS!
We pulled in around 7:30pm in hopes of finding something or we would've had to backtrack to who knows where. They actually had one available spot for a 30 footer so we got really lucky. Next morning, 8am, we went to check in and we asked for another night because we wanted to go to Rocky Mountain NP that day so we definitely needed another night. The park IS an hour and a half away and lots of traffic in Estes Park. We didn't wanna tote our trailer up there to a campground, we were close to burnout towing for two weeks through mountains. They weren't sure if it was possible but the gentleman who helped us really worked the system and got it all worked out for us. We had to wait for him to call us to let us know if we could stay so it was enough time for breakfast and by 9:00am he called and said we could stay on the site we had. He knew we wanted to get to the park soon, as he knew the distance we would be driving. We would've moved if we had to but he worked it out for us to stay in that spot. We were on with our day from that point forward.
The staff at Dakota were all very friendly with smiles on their faces, it was a pleasure to meet them. Our site was good, it's totally what we needed but there was kind of a construction business right behind us and they started work about 8am and didn't stop until about 10pm. It wasn't overly loud or anything and there is brush and trees between us and them but they do keep their radio on and you can hear them talking and fussing at each other. Not that big of a deal but I'd stay on another row and have no view of them at all, if you're the type to make reservations.
The bathroom was very nice and comfortable for showering. My son enjoyed the pool one evening. The whole campground was nice and clean. It was a short stay but we enjoyed it. I thought it was the perfect, last minute ending to our two and a half week trip and Dakota helped us out! I would stay here again to go to RMNP.

It is very OVER priced. Almost $75.00 a night for a back in space, super odd staff that spends most of your check in time telling you what yon CANNOT do. After we paid they told us everything in the park that was shut down, didn't work or under repair.

It seems that front desk thinks this is the greatest place EVER, however it is a average RV park with average service and average hook ups. The ONLY thing that is above average is the price.

Facility was clean, staff were very nice. Only negative to report during our stay was we had two rubber orange marker cones stolen. I use them to mark a slide out that has been walked into in the past. I have removable pipe insulator sleeves as bumpers on the slide edges along with the marker cones placed on the ground beneath the slide out. If you leave items outside your RV be sure they are secured to your RV. My location was E3 which is visible from the road. We did check with the staff to be sure they were not mistakenly picked up by the staff rather than stolen.....sorry to report they were stolen!

Extremely unfriendly staff. I was told I had to be guided into my site. Previous reviews state that the sites are very narrow, the reason for a guide. Well the guide did not do his job as he ran me into a tree limb. In order for me to move forward or back the limb had to be cut off the tree. My insurance said it was my fault because I was the driver. I get that but the park said oh well too bad. The next day the park was full and I experienced a low or high voltage on one leg of the 120 volt system. Shame on me for not having a surge/low voltage protector. I now have one but extensive damage was done to my Class A. Again the park management said oh well too bad. I guess the love of the almighty dollar is greater than taking care of their customers.

This park is going through some changes. They changed the staff, who for the most part were very nice. They are removing most of the slabs on the sites that were cracking or not level . they are pouring new concrete on these sites! Great! The bad news is they do this while you are there. For the prices that they charge you would think that you were in for the time of your life, wrong! This park is too small for the big rigs of today. I have seen soo many people complain about there spot. This is a nice park, but it seems like the corporate owners could care less if you come back or not, because they are always full. That's a shame, this is such a nice area. NO POOL NO HOT TUB while I was there. The reck hall has one very old pool table, and some free weights, that's it. 16 days costed me 1100.00. I will never go back again.

Always enjoy staying here when I visit family in Boulder. Enjoy it's close proximity to my fav Red Rock park. Easy to walk to restaurants, convenient drive to shopping. Great hiking and trails just over the ridge, off sight.

Friendly staff, always greet with a smile and work hard to accommodate your needs. Lovely common room to hang out in with friends or family. Spaces are a bit tight but you are in a city, and it's a busy, popular area. They helped me park my rig with no problem. Prices are high here as they are in most popular high tourist destinations, but it's worth it. Well maintained facilities and pretty campground with nice views nestled in the hills. This is my second stay here and I always look forward to returning.

the bathrooms and washer/dryer area are wonderful. This is not a camperground this is an rv parking lot. There was no TV and in June the pool was "closed for the season" if you like to sit outside of your camper at all this is not the place unless you enjoy looking at your neighbors sewage hose. We were not informed the TV and pool were not available nor were we compensate $

A pretty good-sized community park. It is on the western edge of the metropolitan Denver city limits, at the base of the foothills. The staff was friendly, the clubhouse was bright and open. The land there is on the side/bottom of a small hill, so the campsites are not as level as we may have liked. With leveling blocks and such, we were able to nestle in pretty well. The restrooms were decent but the showers were cold, not something you want to experience when there is snow on the ground outside. At $50 a night, I would have expected steam in my shower stall. Instead, it was a quick in-and-out.

campground has tight pull-tru sites,concrete pads are only as wide as the coach, so when you step out of your coach you could be on unlevel ground. No cable & wi-fi was very poor . They have a no refund policy for early departure no matter the reason !!! Even if they rent out your site they still refuse to refund your payment !!!!!

Unfriendly staff, pool out of order our entire vacation, hot tub closed down earlier than what sign stated, overly priced, ongoing maintenance on our site and poor communication from staff. We were extremely disappointed with this place!! We would've definitely stayed at another place if we would've been informed of the pool not being in working condition. We had 4 children with us under the age of 6 that we paid extra for this place because of their pool. We should've been informed of the pool not working! We, in turn, had to pay other places with pools such as rec centers and other facilities all while still paying Dakota Ridge for their daily fee. Very disappointed we didn't receive a refund and owners are not willing to resolve issues. Would never stay there again as they ruined our vacation!!

The park is very clean, nice showers, bathrooms, laundry room, and pool. On checking in staff was efficient and friendly. You are escorted to your site which can be helpful or a hindrance. Spaces are very close together side by side and the path to your space is narrow. Parking your vehicle can be difficult.

During the weekend the site is relatively quiet with the exception of barking dogs outside of the park. Monday a.m. the industrial noise was incredible. Large semi-trucks backing up, honking, and unloading.

On Monday, the day we were scheduled to check out by 11 a.m., we received a call about a family emergency. We decided I would stay in Boulder and my husband would return to Texas with the trailer. Because of the traffic issue and the fact he would have to take me to a residential area I went to the office to ask if we could have leeway with checkout time so he could leave the trailer, take me to Boulder, and then return to hook-up and pull out. I was told that if the trailer was not out by twelve it would be towed and it would be $25 dollars extra without exception. I admit I was very upset by the emergency at the time but I do understand the way businesses run. I would have gladly paid the $25 dollars but the callous approach left us both with a very bad taste. While hooking up the gentlemen in the golf ?carts came by and ask us if we were leaving (we were disconnecting utilities), and circled around twice more before we could pullout.

The park is expensive $158.00/3 nights. It is called a resort, but does not have the amenities of a resort. It is good for an overnight stay when you have places to go. It is always full due to the lack of RV parks in the area therefor they don't need your business and it shows.

We have been staying here since 2002 and without a doubt some spots are better than others, and some spots cater to specific RVs better than others. This is true of most campgrounds. This year our spot was horrible with our rear entry as the last step was nearly impossible to navigate and we can't use a step stool with our dog. However, the site was plenty long and level and had plenty of room for our 36' triple slide Cougar 5th wheel. We've had better sites here, but didn't get our reservations in early enough to get the one we wanted! Anyone with a mid entry door would have been fine on this site and we are used to dealing with step height issues with our rear entry. The staff has always been friendly and courteous to us. There were plenty of local channels available and we bring our own Wifi as campgrounds often have limited or marginal access. It is one of the highest priced places we stay at each year but it's close and convenient to everywhere we want to be in the area. We will definitely be staying here in the future and would recommend this RV park to others.
