We stayed two nights this weekend with our nieces and nephew. It was easy to find and very nice and shaded. The camp host was very friendly and accommodating. There were multiple sites that were first come, first serve- we arrived early Friday afternoon and there were three left. We'll definitely come back!

This summer our family (total of six people) stayed a week at Olive Ridge Campground during July. This is our families favorite Colorado campground and we visit here everytime we are in the area. Reservation system worked perfect and the site was well cleaned when we arrived. We had a wonderful experience and our entire family looks forward to returning.... More

The campground is in a beautiful location and the camp sites are large, especially those that are on the outer portion of the loop roads. This year's campground hosts are not good at all. When arriving for an August reservation that we had made in March, there was a sign on our site that it was reserved the weekend after... More

This is the 3rd year my husband and I have chosen to come and stay in this spacious, luscious green wooded campground. You're really couldn't ask for more! It is a beautiful hidden gem, with campsites that are shaded, large, clean, and you can be as secluded as you want to. It's location is ideal, A few miles from Rocky... More

We camp as a family every summer, and this was, so far, the most beautiful location we have been to. As another reviewer noted, you can hear the traffic from the nearby highway which is a bit of a downside. However, you can neither see, nor smell the traffic, so this is easy to over look. It is bear country,... More

I've spent two nights at Olive Ridge camping with my nephews and their parents and have no complaints. Olive Ridge is a pleasant campground in an open Ponderosa Pine - Doug Fir forest. The sites are large so you are not too close to other people. I give it thumbs-up for kid friendliness --my nephews enjoyed playing on rocks and... More

We just got back from spending 3 nights at Olive Ridge. It was a very good experience. The hosts were very nice and friendly and did a great job of keeping the bathrooms stocked and cleaned. They were definitely the cleanest ones I have experienced. The campgrounds were spaced nicely apart and well marked.

We recently camped at Olive Ridge and had a great time. We drove through the campground twice, noticing that a lot of sites are close to others, without much privacy. On our second loop through, we settled on a large, shaded site that backed up to a hill. The site was separated from the nearby sites by at least a... More

Campground hosts were unfriendly and controlling. I don't know if it was because we were young and not the typical patron, but the hosts were dropping by at least every hour to ensure that we weren't breaking any rules (we weren't). We were reminded of the rules three times despite not breaking any, and were told that we are not... More

I went with my husband, young son and 4 other friends to this campground. It is only about 20 miles away from Estes Park and the National Park Entrance, but easily accessible. Where the National Park campgrounds were tired and worn looking, with heavy pine beetle damage, this park was shady with big camp sites and very friendly staff. We... More
