Golden Municipal Campground
Ranked #34 of 43 Speciality Lodging in Golden
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Plenty of trees, right by the river. The trains are not awesome, as the tracks are right across the river, but you hardly notice them. Good bathroom facilities, hot showers (for a fee). Plenty of tent and trailer sites.

Small office with most of the "emergency" items you'll need for camping. They have firewood, $8 for a crate. We come rafting every June, and always camp at the Municipal Campground.

Room Tip: There are no rooms, it's a campsite :) The further you are from the river, the less you'll...

I spent 3-9 day vacations at this campground (July, Aug and Sep 2013). The scenery is spectacular, the staff are great, and I love the trains. I have been camping here for over 25 years and it keeps calling me back. You can walk to anywhere in town for groceries, dining or a pint on a patio, or just to walk along the river path which goes for miles. The facilities are great and I have met many town people who have stopped to talk and who I look forward to seeing next year. I have met campers from many countries and they are all impressed with our country and the campground. Give it a try and see for yourself how truly awesome this campground is. I will be back next year!

We stayed here one night on our way back home. We were kept awake until 3am by the people in the next campsite. I don't think they would classify their actions as 'partying' - they were just 3 people sitting around the fire listening to music, drinking, telling stories and occasionally erupting in laughter. But they were about 10 feet away from us so that's enough to keep us awake.
If this campground wants to be family friendly, they have to do a better job communicating to people what is allowed and not allowed.

We had a one night stay here as we made our way east to Banff and just want to compliment the staff on being very friendly and helpful during our stay. We had some issues with our RV rental and the staff went out of their way to try and help us. Though the train tracks were close this really didn't bother during the night and provided some entertainment for our young boys in the morning.

I've been here a couple of times and think that the place is great. There are two bathroom / shower buildings. Both are really clean. One is a little older than the other. The older one has a great dishwashing counter. Big counter, two big sinks, plenty of hot water, all stainless steel. No need to hassle with doing the dishes near your tent. We had rain for a couple of days, which isn't that much fun in a tent. Fortunately, there is a covered picnic shelter right next to the main office. It has a concrete pad, access to electricity and WiFi, laundry room which provides water for cooking and washing, and overhead lighting for the evenings. The main office contains the newer toilets and showers. Very clean, with plenty of hot water. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to provide an outdoor dishwashing area near the main building.

The sites themselves were very good. Ours was surrounded by trees, plenty big for our car and tent, flat, and clean (no garbage lying around).

Sure there are some mosquitoes, but hey, this is the outdoors! The train is a bit annoying, but manageable.

All of the staff were really friendly and helpful. They let me refreeze my water jug for my cooler in their big freezer.

We have stayed at this campsite for about 5 years in a row now and find it really suits our needs. We use it as our stop over point on our way to and fron BC and really enjoy staying here. I love the sound of the river and the trains just add to the whole experience. The staff have always been friendly and the facilities very clean.

We have stayed at the Golden Municipal Campground 3 summers in a row (in tents). The sites are clean, as are the bathroom facilities. The staff were very friendly. There is a nice walking trail along the river, a great outdoor swimming pool just down the road from the campground, and Golden is nice little town to explore.
