For Chief Hosa Campground: Nice clean campground with great views and nice spacious lots. Great campground host, very nice and helpful. Right outside of Denver with nice cool temps. Be warned: you need quarters for the bath house showers.

For Chief Hosa Campground: Run by the City of Denver. Sites are close together and short. Most are not level. Tough to get in and out if you’re 30 feet or longer. They actually charge you quarters to use the showers. And, astoundingly, they will charge you an extra $23 to use the dump. There is shade.

For Chief Hosa Campground: Site not level and fairly close together. Because of proximity to highway you could hear traffic. We had a pleasant afternoon. Toilets and showers clean. Good stop for overnight and would stop there again.

For Chief Hosa Campground: Pros: Close to Denver, Golden, Black Hawk, and the Red Rocks. Clean facility. Cons: Small sites, some unlevel sites, $23 dump fee Overall: I would come back for the convenient location. It is good for shorter stays.

For Chief Hosa Campground: I secured tent site T-9 as I've always secured this particular site. I have used this campground on repeat occasions yearly. This last visit I checked in for my site at T-9, and the whole grounds on which this site sits, was completely covered in Foxtails. For those who do not know what Foxtails are they are extremely dangerous to Dogs and Cats. The seed heads burrow into the pets skin and migrate further into their bodies causing damage to internal organs. Just look up Foxtail dangers to dogs. Anyway, I put down tarps to cover an area for my bulldog to at least have somewhere to sit, play a bit and chew on a few treats and toys I brought along and join us during down time. I went up and talked to the rangers and explained why I did it. The ranger I spoke to said he understood and that that particular site had been booked since opening of season and that they hadn't been able to spray the weeds. I explained how dangerous the Foxtails were to dogs and that if they are to rent that space to another with a dog they may want to block out a week and take care of it before someone else's dog gets into it. Most people who are not from the west likely don't even know what Foxtails are and what kind of serious damage (even death) it can do to their loved pets. They agreed and said it's fine that we put the tarps down we were doing them a favor by suffocating them. Day 3 rolls around and we return around 7-ish to our campsite to find a warning citation on our table, written by a different ranger, stating we have to remove the tarps immediately, for destruction of their vegetation or they will write us a citation with a fine and/or evict us from the campground. What really got me is according to the State of Colorado Regulations they are supposed to have 900 square feet of usable safe space (safe, meaning to humans and pets/small animals) per campsite. Most sites are with a parking spot with nice gravel and traveled up to the tent pad. However, this site and a couple others were not, for reasons not really explained to us. Anyways, next morning the ranger came and spoke to my husband and said the other ranger was misinformed about telling us what he did about suffocating the weeds, and that we need to remove the tarps. They offered us an alternative camp site, but when we took them up on that offer, they proceeded to tell us none were available for the time frame we had remaining. We would have to move sights a few times. Now, anyone who knows about tent camping, it is a lot of work to relocate a camp site. To do this several times would not even be worth it. We proceeded to ask for a refund, NOPE! No refunds since there is nothing wrong in their eyes with the T-9 site. They offered their group site area to us, so we took it and moved camp only once. The new problem was no parking. We had to walk all our things twice a day to the car in the visitors parking lot. This campsite has had Bears on numerous occasions. There are NO BEARBOXES and so the moving of all food and items with smell had to be taken to and from the car every night and every time we wanted to cook. The ranger proceeded to tell us that they contacted their naturalist, and deemed those Foxtail weeds as an exotic species and so therefore they need to be protected even though it is all over in between the sites and in the foot tall grasses they haven't maintained. I asked why it had to be in the "safezone" of our so called tent site and they just said because it is a special species and it has to be allowed to grow where it wants naturally. So, I asked, how is it that these plants could be more important than the health and welfare of my dog on a site that was advertised as dog friendly? They could not answer and told me to take it up with Denver Parks and Recreation. So, I will. Now, in addition to this event, over the last two years or approximately since the marijuana laws have changed in this state, we have seen partyers of all sorts up all night making loud noises after the 10 PM quiet time, hypothermic needles on the ground, air wreaking of pot at all hours, drunk and vomiting people in the overnight hours of the restrooms. Homeless people sleeping in the ladies restrooms overnight, asking other guests for money and alcohol and they apparently allow homeless people to rent a tent site and just sleep in their cars. One particular person was there with his dog and was so high he didn't even close his windows and his Husky jumped out of his vehicle and was roaming around all the campsites including ours at night. I had to wake this man up and he was smelly and out of it. He said his dog got loose in the evening hours and he just figured he would come back. Also, you must listen to I-70 Vehicles all night as the campground has no sound wall from the highway. if you like to hear J-brakes from semi's all night this place is for you. I now see why they have a whole list of rules and regulations in place because the childish behavior from the homeless and Red Rock concert goers and pot smoking hippies that are swarming the place are completely out of hand. All the while they apparently only enforce their precious Foxtail weeds over all the other nonsense. The last two times have progressively gotten worse. This last time being the topper on the cake. I will never return to this campground EVER!

For Chief Hosa Campground: My priorities are ease of parking, 4G coverage and such.

Got a pull-through unit, a bit short but was able to fit my 25ft MH and 8FT trailer just fine. Entry and exit is a tad tight but doable.
No wifi, but none offered though my Ubiquity unit spotted an xfinity wifi AP, but it proved unusable for me. 4G coverage was two bars or in the mid-90s using the weboost 4G-S booster. It was much slower, the 4G, without the booster! With the booster, got quite good data throughput for downloads and uploads, enough to do work.

Small campground, no frills, didn't check out the bathhouse this time. Lots of trees but still ended up having to use my awning during part of the day at the spot I was parked. Road noise was acceptable to me, but then again, I didn't hike around the area either.

Close to the western side of the Metro denver area so there's that. Paid $30/night. Will use again.

For Chief Hosa Campground: Lots of road noise from the nearby highway. RV sites were nothing more than a gravel parking space. No campfires allowed. No place for the kids to safely run around, play or ride their bikes. The rules sheet states no alcohol over 3.2% allowed. We stayed one night, then went up to the mountains, which was much more enjoyable.
