FL-JOE Posted July 17, 2019 Report Share Posted July 17, 2019 Part of our run out west this summer we wanted to visit Cheyenne and Laramie, then drop down for a week in the Loveland CO area and do some rides around the Rocky Mountain National Park area. We pre-plan and make reservations. Narrowed our stay down to an "RV Resort" in Loveland just off I-25 on U.S. 34. Easy drive up to Estes and into the areas we wanted to ride the Harley. Checked reviews of the park, used Google Earth to see exactly what it looked like, and even talked to them twice on the phone. Due to our size we reserved a "premium" site, which was nothing more than a 65' pull thru gravel site with slightly more width. None of the RV parks in the Loveland, Ft. Collins, Denver area are cheap. What we found is this "resort" is simply an older RV park that has been allowed to fill up with full time local workers. I would guess about 75% here are in old used rigs that the occupant would have no way of moving themselves. 90% of the sites (gravel) have been set up so close to each other that generally only one site can have an awning out at one time. They have kept 10 or 12 premium sites off to one side but when we asked about one of those for next year we were told that some of them would become "permanent" spots for residents next summer. We have visited a few other campground in the area and will be driving through a few more before we depart. We are finding this is the norm, many of the sites are full of local full time workers. Is this a trend that is getting more and more prevalent around larger cities (Denver)? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
