.

This public campground situated within a natural area, and it is surrounded by small lakes and affluent residential neighborhoods. We stayed here over Labor Day weekend 2013, and fellow campers courteous and respectful of others. Campground rules are strictly enforced.

From Interstate I-25 at Exit 257 take US Highway 34 west-bound (towards the mountains) for 3.4-miles, turn north on Madison Avenue in Loveland Colorado, and follow the brown signs to Boyd Lake State Park.

This RV campground offers convenient access to shopping, restaurants, fuel, flee-markets and antique stores in both Loveland and Fort Collins, Colorado. The campground is 10-minutes away from the south-side of Fort Collins, which is known for its microbreweries, Colorado State University, bicycle events, and its unique Historic Downtown. The campground is close to McKee Medical Center, Medical Center of the Rockies, the Fort Collins Harmony Campus of Poudre Valley Hospital. It is a one-hour drive to Denver International Airport or downtown Denver.

Boyd Lake is normally a one-hour road trip on US Highway 34 to Estes Park Colorado, which is the eastern entrance into Rocky Mountain National Park. However, US34 was severely damaged by flash-floods in 2013. Travelers should check with the Colorado Department of Transportation before planning access to Rocky Mountain National Park via US34. Fortunately, Boyd Lake State Park was not affected by the 2013 flood.

Boyd Lake is more convenient to Loveland, south Fort Collins, Rocky Mountain National Park and Denver International Airport than campgrounds north of Fort Collins.

Many campground sites have shade trees and views of Boyd Lake to the east or the front-range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains to the west. Boyd Lake has a swim beach, beach house, boat ramps, and a variety of opportunities for fishing and boating. Boyd Lake campground has modern bathhouses with showers, playgrounds and a small laundry, all of which are well maintained.

There are paved bicycle and hiking trails that link into the extensive paved trail system that covers all of Fort Collins, including connections to mountain-bike trails on public lands in foothills. 50-amp power is reliable. Potable water is from an excellent municipal source, with numerous hydrants located throughout the campground; almost no sites have sewer or potable water hookups.

All sites are paved pull-throughs in the 40-foot to 60-foot range. Our 40-foot site adequately accommodated our 40-foot motorhome plus our Jeep Wrangler. However, travelers with larger motorhomes should select the larger sites. All internal campground roads are paved.

Verizon voice coverage is a little on the weak-side but adequate. There is no campground Wi-Fi, but our Verizon MiFi connection to the internet was strong. The campground is open all year, and it is popular with local families on summer weekends.

If you arrive after office hours, be sure to purchase the daily entry pass ($8 per day) at the self-service station just beyond the campground entrance; otherwise, you risk a $52.50 citation. Do not wait until the office opens next morning because this policy is strictly enforced at 8:00 AM. You can purchase an annual pass for $70 ($60 for Colorado residents 64 years or older), and thereby avoid the $8 daily access fee. The annual pass also reduces campground fees by $3 per day on weekdays. There are a few unadvertised sites with full hookups that are available for $26/day; they cannot be reserved, and they are only available on a first-come first-serviced basis.
