This is one of our favorite stops whenever we travel out west. Many of the sites have beautiful views of the mountains and are nestled in among old, sprawling junipers. We have had many great bird watching and other wildlife watching opportunities each time we visit the park.
The bathrooms and showers are probably the cleanest we've experienced anywhere and each year we have been back for the last four years, they look as good as the first time. They also do their part to conserve water, but do require quarters for the showers. You should be fine with $1.50 per shower, but it is hot, fully accessible and worth every penny.
There is power at the RV sites, but no water to connect to, so either fill your water tank or bring your own vessel for carrying from the communal spigots scattered throughout.
An additional bonus, is this parks proximity to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. At only about an hour and a half away, a visit there is a must!
It is well worth a stay at this peaceful and beautiful campground and I can't wait until next time!

I've camped in an RV twice at Lathrop State Park. It's a nice park with a lake and hiking trails. If you're looking for a nice, shady park this is NOT the one. There are few trees in the area and the wind blows a lot so few people take the chance on putting out an awning. Also, there are no hook-ups with water so make sure your tank is full before you get settled in a spot. Be sure to have lots of quarters on hand....you have to pay for your showers in the bath house. The park has beautiful views of the Twin Peaks and surrounding area. It's also only about 75 miles to Great Sand Dunes National Park which is a place you must visit.
