Colorado Parks Visitor Reviews
Regarding campsites affected by fire - I was there on September 3, and the campsites were fine. The fire is well to the south.

RUDE CAMP HOST - WE HAVE CAMPED AT turquoise Lake {Molly Brown] for years Never have we met such a rude camp host. Every camp site had a story. it was almost funny watching each new family arrive seeing him track them down. threatened a 79 year old woman for tuning the wrong way on the road even though she pulled over right away. Threatened to make her leave the park, left her in tears. maybe the roads need better markings, watched him chase many cars for the same offense. when someone had a hammock on tree, he stopped, didnt say a word handed them a paper told them to read the highlighted section.. previous camp host always made us feel welcome, would stop by to talk

- When I was a small boy my Father took me there to go fishing. What a real memory that is. I think of often.
A Long Marriage - My husband and I got married 33 years ago and had our reception at the Eldorado Building. It was so beautiful. we stopped by today and saw it was still in use. It brought back alot of memories,

dirt bikers on colorado trail - This Sunday I encountered two separate groups of riders on dirt bikes on the section of the Colorado trail that runs up the valley by Pole Creek. Closed to motorcylcles I thought. Tire tracks suggested other riders had used this section recently.

Old Flowers Road - Why is this road listed as open to the public? It was burned off in the High Park Fire and was flooded in 2013 and is not passable by any type of vehicle.

Very good with one exception - We stayed overnight on the 18th and the 23rd of this month. We thought the park was exceptional with one exception. The tree needs to be trimed on the exit from the park. I asked the ranger about this hazard when we stayed again at the park on the 23rd. She said they had had other comments about the tree. It is a real hazard to RV roofs and needs attention!!!
