We came here on the recommendation of a fellow camper because they have their own hot spring pools! They have 3 pools, each with a little different temperature. The pools are great - big, clean and wonderful. The campground isn't much to speak of, mottled grass with tight spaces, but FHU. We were only there for 2 days, so it didn't really matter to us. Looked like a "weekend get-away" as it really cleared out on Sunday! When you added the fees for the pools in town to the park fees at the other campgrounds it didn't make sense to go anywhere else just for a "fancier place", especially if you were going to go to the pool more than once.
We loved this place! Got a great site #102, with a wonderful view that was a pull-in, back out. So lovely here! Lots of shade trees, green grass all around. Great WiFi and TV reception. Ice Cream every night. Great location for scenic trips. This is a winner!
We've stayed here before. It's an OK CG, nothing to get excited about, your out of town quite a bit, sites are basic dirt/gravel with a little bit of grass with a table and not much trees. FHU. It's a HUGE campground, and you are packed in like sardines, one right after another. They have a cute little train to go see the bison for the kids (I'm sure that's extra, but I didn't check it out) and (of course) a big gift shop, as well as restaurant (anything to make more money). They are, as I said, way out of town, after all, so have a captured audience.
This is a super nice place! Right off the hwy, but with little noise. Clean, well maintained, grass areas between sites, nice level, long pull-thrus, with FHU plus WiFi & Cable. A nice pass-thru to the Penny's Diner next door, and another Grill as well. Good location for other attractions too. Great campground.
This is basically a parking lot along side a park. It has trees for shade. I can't believe it has 60 sites, as advertised, I'd say more like 20. It also looked like there were 10 or so that pretty much settled in there for the long term. We lucked out and found the last site with electric (that's all you will get, or nothing at all). We got there around 11:30 a.m. and at noon, others were arriving and circling, looking. I don't think any rig larger than ours (we have a 36' mh) would have fit, except for boondocking along the other side, barely. Ok for a free night or two. Quiet, shady, close to town, level. Everyone there was friendly enough. Park next door was nice, very busy with weekend parties and events.
Date of Stay:
One of Colorado's nicer parks
We spent 2 nights in one spot with elec only @ $36, then moved over to FHU
for 1 night @ $41 plus our CO Pass (@ $80 for the year, or would be $8 per day).
Chatfield is one of the nicest parks in the state, clean, level, paved & gravel sites with views of the lake; albeit expensive for state parks in my opinion. You have a view of the water here, which is also nice - if you have a boat, this place is even better as it has a marina as well. We have stayed before as we have friends nearby, so will come again. Very busy and popular place, we are lucky to get a spot when we come, so make your reservations early!
Nice quiet campground with good over the air TV reception. It's about mid-way between Pueblo and Colorado Springs. It has a Walmart about 15 min. away, along with a good pizza restaurant (Angelo's) along with some other strip malls, then Pueblo is about another 20 min. away. Colorado Springs is about 30 min. the other way. The mountains, with nice day trips is off in the other direction. So it turned out to be a good location after all. Windy, like all of Southern CO. but mostly in the afternoon is all. Super nice owner (Nancy). Would stay here again.
It is new this year, so not many trees, but it is nicely landscaped and maintained. It is in an industrial type area, but once you drive through the gates, it is a nice park. The sites were dirt/gravel with a strip of grass and a table. The interior roads are extra wide. The utilities are well placed and worked fine. There are railroad tracks on the other side of their fence but they aren't active. It was very quiet at night.The hook ups are about a third of the way back from the front on the site, which works better for motorhomes. They have gone out of their way to add little details like a gathering gazebo, a nice clubhouse area, even a small exorcise room. Hosts were very nice.
Water and 50 amp. Nice level cement sites. *Had we stayed at more state parks in Colorado, this year, this would have been a good price, as it was, it was costly. Oh well. Being a state park, it's "basic", no WiFi, TV, etc. just nice sites and sometimes a view. This one, where you camp, you don't see the lake...
* "Out of state" campers have to pay an additional fee on top of the camping fee - so be prepared for that!
Not much to look at. The road in and the sites are gravel and dirt. Each site has a picnic table, a bbq and a small amount of dead grass/weeds. The park is totally dirt & the only grass is along the perimeter fence.The park is OK if you need something overnight but at $40.00 for 50 amp it's overpriced since the amenities are VERY minimal. They have free WiFi which is nice if you can actually pick up a decent signal.
