Camping With Electricity Dillon/Silverthorne Colorado area?

I have been looking on web for camping / RV parks that have at least electricity on the site in the Dillon / Silverthorne Colorado area. Appreciate your input. Thanks
James

Prospector doesn't have sites with electricity.

Google will fix that and figure out what you probably meant, but that search still doesn't say anything about whether the RV park has electricity.

Yep. Those are the only two I've ever been able to find.

But be aware that Heaton Bay has only 16 sites that have electricity (the rest have no hookups at all), and they tend to stay fully booked all summer, with maybe a random one-night availability here and there. It closes in early October.

Tiger Run is open year-round. It's expensive.

We gave up a long time ago - so Tiger Run or Leadville for something in the area.

We will be staying at Dillon lake in one of the lakeside campgrounds in September - Heaton Bay I think that has electricity. We will in Colorado, at various campgrounds, most of September this year. I was amazed at how many areas were booked solid for September and cant figure out what the big draw is for that time of the year. It's before hunting season, archery may be just starting up, but beyond that, cant figure out why everything is filled up. Just consider ourselves lucky that we got spots. We also booked several months in advance. Take a look at the https://www.recreation.gov/reservation.do?mode=current or the Co. State Park site, Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Camping and that may help you.

There are beautiful public campgrounds with no electric. Any special reason for electric?

I'm not the OP, but I like electric sites because even though I'm totally solared up, it means I know I won't have to listen to somebody else's generator.
