We stayed at Loveland RV Resort while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The park is about an hour’s drive from the city of Loveland. We were pleased to find Loveland RV a well-run park with some fun amenities and attractive grounds.
- Pretty grounds
- Full hookups, including cable
- Nice Clean Facilities
- Convenient location
- Somewhat expensive
- Some Traffic noise
Loveland is a city rich with strip malls and department stores so there was plenty to eat and plenty of shopping nearby. The downside is that it’s on a major roadway to Denver so traffic gets pretty bad around rush hour and there is always some traffic noise in the park from the road. While it is set in a commercial and residential area, the resort is surrounded by small trees and within hosts many towering giants that give the park a much more natural and serene feeling that you might expect.
Loveland RV is a pretty big park and the lots are a little close for comfort but due to the nice open lawns and trees, it still has a nice peaceful feeling to it. Unlike some places we’ve been, Loveland RV does qualify as a resort, if only just. They have a large rec room with leather couches, a bit TV, fireplace, and even a few video game cabinets. There is a decent sized pool, though it was closed for the season when we arrived. They have a small store. There is a swing set and playground for kids, the usual horseshoe pit, and even a 9 hole mini-golf course in pretty good condition.
The bathrooms were not only very clean, but the even smelled nice and fresh. It was clear all around that the owners of the park take very good care of it and their customers. Wireless internet at our site was great as we had an antenna just outside our trailer. Like nearly all parks the usefulness of it drops significantly in the evening as everyone starts accessing it at once.
Unfortunately, Loveland RV is not a bargain. The price is not outrageous for a resort class park, but it was definitely higher than I’d like. Normally I’d take a pass on a park at this price but we couldn’t find other decent accommodations for the week we wanted to stay. Still, if you aren’t on a tight budget you do get your money’s worth as they run a very nice park.
