Campground review - St. Vrain State Park

Our final Colorado campground was St. Vrain State Park near Longmont. We also celebrated Chase's fifth birthday.

Nearby attractions - 7 -Within sixth minutes of Denver, Boulder, Ft. Collins and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Staff - 7 - Typical state park staff.
Natural surroundings - 8 - Not many trees in the part of park we stayed in, because it was a newer part of the park. Still we were parked right on one of the several pond/lakes and enjoyed hikes through the parks and sunsets on the distant Rockies.

Value - 7 - We paid $28 a night for full hook-ups for three nights, which included $7 a day for state park entrance fee.

Bathrooms - 6 - Decent and clean, but you have again have to pay 75 cents for four minutes. We can get four minute showers in Howard.
Roominess - 8 - Nice sized parks with not many people here during the week.

Facility fun - 5 - Hikes around the park and fishing if you have a license. Boys also enjoyed throwing rocks in the lake and shooting their sling shots into the lake as well.

Cleanliness - 9 - Very nice!

Facility usefulness - 4 - Bathrooms, but not much else.

Overall - 7 - Nice park, lots of birds and love the lakes. Close to I25 with easy access.
