Very nice hosts but the spaces are very close together (we had to ask the neighbor to move their truck so we could squeeze into our site). Roads/sites are rutted out and very little room to enjoy the fireplace that is at the back of the site/next to the neighbors sewer connection.
LOTS of mosquitoes!!!
The tent sites and overflow RV sites seem to be the nicest sites available with a little more room, privacy and some shade...
But...it is the only RV park in the area that had full hookups if you're into that. We left after 1 night and went to the Forest Service campground 1 mile down the road.

This place has seen years of neglect. If I could give it zero stars I would, and I rarely post negative reviews. The minute we pulled in we knew we’d made a mistake booking it. We booked 6 months ago for a one week stay. We were shown to a site which was in mud because sewer was overflowing into the site. The young man who was on duty told us they had been having a problem with the sewer but couldn’t get anyone to come out to fix it. Really? And no one could call us ahead of time to tell us this? They offered us another site that was completely un-level and in the dirt. And of course no sewer connection because it was out of commission. Sorry. This place is in serious need of attention, like a bulldozer. Worst campground in 3 years of full-time travel. We had to drive another hour to find somewhere to stay. Just don’t do it.

Great location in proximity to Leadville.
Campground host friendly.
A bit crowded and a lot smoky because of the spacing and all the fire pits.
Showers and toilets were clean and supplied.

Quiet And Friendly
Staff was friendly and they let us pick our site from a few different options they had available. Liked that it was quiet. Bathrooms were clean.

Lovely site, lots of trees. Your really in the middle of nowhere. The employees were friendly, except on smart ass girl! The park visitor were very friendly as well. But you need a car to do anything and Leadville is adorable wit lots to do. The did let you have fires which was nice.

Staff was great, very helpful. Bathrooms and showers were well kept, wifi did not work and no TV reception with antenna, very few radio channels. We weren't there for tv or radio, so it was great for us. Small sites, but expected in the mountains. Pet friendly, we had four dogs. Secluded, close to a few very good hikes, and Leadville downtown area is beautiful.

The staff was nice and the bathrooms were ok, but the sites were very close together. The mosquitos during the day would literally carry you off. I don't think I've ever seen mosquitos so bad. The trash at the dumpsters was overflowing and I felt like could cause a risk of bears coming into the camps. It also was in need of gravel added to the sites. Everything would get dirty because it was only mud and dirt around the campsites causing you to track it in the camper. It was nice and close to Turquoise Lake and the views were beautiful but I don't think we would be back mainly because of the close sites and mosquitos.
