Stillwater Campground
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We have camped 3 times at Stillwater and have loved it. Campground Host Steve and Anna are wonderful. I disagree with DebbieAdkins because there has not been one time that we found the showers unkept. Yes they will get very dirty if the campground is full. As for ColoradoWeekender you always have to buy an ANR pass duh!!!! The sigh has always been posted as you enter the campground.

Yes the downside is no shade but hey great place to camp.

We have enjoyed our stays at this campground many times. The view of the lake and mountains is great. But... we were VERY DISAPPOINTED this month when we camped there. The shower houses were unkept and unclean. There are three showers in each bathhouse, but in the one I was in, one of them didn't work at all and another worked only poorly. It certainly is not what it once was!!

When you first enter this park the signage is too busy. One would assume you get camp spot and the pay for it. This year you have to buy a day pass before even finding a camp spot. If you don't you will be ticket.ed We followed the rules, found a campsite, paid for the campsite then setup camp. Less than an hour later someone claimed they had reserve the spot. There was no reserve sign on this site. They got the camp host and he turned up and insinuated that the wife took the reserve sign. He gave us three different stories, his wife put the sign up the other day, then he said he put the sign up the other day, then he said he put it up last night. This camp host is in loop A. There was no reserve sign on the campsite the post was undisturbed. The camp host then threatened to call the Sheriff. Then a forest ranger showed up. I said I just wanted my money back then I would leave. He finally gave me my money back after I told him I didn't want another camp spot. If you don't want do deal with a narcissistic, condescending camp host don't go here.
Also this campground is no gem, dust blowing everywhere, no trees, and cars it the way. I wish I could vote 0 stars.

Room Tip: better reserve, first come first server doesn't work in this campground.

Our biggest complaint is they didn't tell us that there was no hot or warm water for showers. They have a couple different sights for bathrooms but all the showers were turned off except one, which was ice cold and you had to walk pretty far to get to them. Very disappointing especially since there are many other campgrounds to choose from not to far away. This campground is on a hill and most of the trees are gone because of a beetle bug that ate them a while ago. Since there are hardly any trees, the wind is something awful. If you are not in a hard sell camper don't use this sight! Our little pop up camper was shaking so hard that we could see we might get damage to the structure. We took the camper down and packed it away and put it up before bed time, which you know is a pain. We also saw tents that did the same. Most of the tent campers packed up and just left. If you have a hard shell camper or travel trailor, they do not have full hook ups, only a dump station at the front of the park. Dont think about being outside at a camp fire, it is too windy. It wasn't very pleasant when you can't keep your plates on the table to eat. It is very hilly so don't even think about bringing your bikes. Our kids used there's once the entire week. The only positive thing is that the lake is at the bottom of the sights and so you can fish all the time and there is a boat ramp. The boats do get inspected before going into the water. the main road is right next to the campground so you get noise fromtammy cars passing by. I do have to say that the area is very pretty though. However check around and ask lots of questions about the sight before going.

This is a great campground even with the removal of 99% of the trees due to recent beetle kill. (Note: The Google Earth satellite view is deceiving - the tree coverage shown is non-existent). That noted, the lake views were spectacular and access to bathrooms and showers is fairly easy. If RV'ing, the sites with the best views (270 degrees) are 16,18,20, 21,22,23 and 30 although sites 22 and 23 are shorter and more suited for popups. All the RV sites are back-in only and most are too narrow to park a vehicle alongside, therefore you're forced to park perpendicular to the front of your trailer, just off the road. This is a bit tight for larger towing vehicles but manageable.

Note that ALL sites with electricity that we saw have one 50A, one 30A and two 15A duplex plugs and ALL have potable water spigots. The dump station is easily accessible when departing and has an adjacent non-potable spigot (no hose) for cleaning tanks at the dump site. Lots of dumpsters are scattered around the campground.

Bring your kites! The advantage to the lack of trees is an wide open area for kite flying. Note that the wind picks-up around 10AM and is steady until 3-4PM (in June). Also, the boat launch is easily accessible and accommodating.

The park staff were very friendly and seemed to be always present when needed.

Overall it was a great experience! Yes, the trees were missed, but the lake views made up for it! Recommended.

Breathtaking views, relatively quiet. Camp sites are along the lake with close access to the showers and bathroom facilities.
