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.

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.

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.

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 !!!!!

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.
