Your assessment is correct IMHO. I’m from Colo and I think there are few good choices in Estes. A few years ago I made reservations at Campground X in Estes. A week before I was due to arrive flash flooding closed the road into Estes. The power was up and down and the city water supply was out. The mayor ordered voluntary evacuations. I called Campground X (the best rated one in town). I said I couldn’t stay there under those conditions, nor was it smart. The owner refused to refund my money since I cancelled within 30 days. I ended up disputing the charge with my bank. The owner said I could never come there…..fine.

I’m staying west of Rocky Mountain Park in Granby CO. Not as many places to shop or eat, but not like that place.

Welcome to the forum. I agree the private campgrounds in Estes leave a bit to be desired. Maybe look outside of Estes and just drive over to see the park and town.

Good luck.

So. We just left Spruce Lake RV on Sunday. Stayed 6 nites. The site was a little tight , level and all utilities worked fine. WiFi marginal at best. Overall better than the one we are in now at G o Gs in Colorado Springs , except the WiFi. Staff were all friendly. Probably a bit overpriced, but it’s all about location. We will probably stay there on our next trip to that area.
