When planning an RV trip to Colorado, you want to find an RV park that best fits your needs. But with so many RV Parks in Colorado, how do you know which one to choose? One way to know you’ve found a quality RV Park is to look at the awards it has won.

Jellystone Park™ in Estes Park is an award-winning Colorado RV Park in the midst of the Colorado Rockies and the Roosevelt National Forest. We’ve been honored with many awards over the years. Most recently in 2018, we were recognized with three awards by the Jellystone Park franchise – Pinnacle Club, Customer Satisfaction and Industry Service.  Each year, the franchise recognizes RV parks and campgrounds for outstanding performance in a variety of areas and we were thrilled to be acknowledged.

Jellystone Park Estes Park is a family-owned and operated business. Owners Rick and Shelly Spear take great pride in their RV park and it shows. Their hard work and dedication also earned the Regional Camp-Resort of the Year Award in 2017, the highest award given to a Jellystone Park.

Regional Camp-Resort of the Year

The Regional Camp-Resort of the Year Award is LSI’s highest honor at the regional level. It is given to Camp-Resorts whose facilities and operations exceed all Jellystone Park standards. Recipients must be Pinnacle Club members, meaning they rate 95 percent or higher on the annual LSI assessment of their facilities and operations. Award recipients also must have achieved strong growth in business, implemented sustained improvements and be leaders in the industry.

Highest Rated Facilities & Operations

Jellystone Park Estes Park received the “Pinnacle Club Award” for scoring over 95 percent on the annual assessment of its facilities and operations. A team from the Jellystone Park franchise headquarters visits each park annually to ensure standards are met and exceeded.

A detailed assessment is completed that includes all aspects of park operations and facilities. For example, they review the buildings and park grounds to ensure they are clean and well-maintained. They look at the quality of the RV sites, tent sites, cabins and RV rentals. It’s not easy to achieve a 95 percent on the annual assessment, but everyone at Jellystone Park – from the reservation staff to the maintenance crew – does their part to make the RV park the best it can be!

Best Customer Service

A business can be clean, well-maintained and have top notch facilities but one of the most important traits (if not the most important) is to have good customer service. As a small business, we understand how critical good customer service is to your overall experience at our RV Park.

The Customer Service Award is special because it’s given based on feedback from guests. Each year, guests across the Jellystone Park franchise are asked to complete a survey about their experience. Only those Parks with an 88 percent or higher overall satisfaction score receive the award.

Being locally owned and operated gives that special touch you may not find at other corporate-style RV Parks. Having the owners on property, working right alongside the staff, makes a difference in the experience we provide!

Dan O’Connell Service Award

This award recognizes an individual’s strong support and work to improve and grow the campground industry. Owner Rick Spear was recognized for his efforts within the Jellystone Park franchise and the camping industry. In addition to running their own campground, the Spears find time to help other park operators. “We try to be team players,” Rick Spear said, adding that he has volunteered on the franchise Advisory Council in addition to serving on an informal education committee to provide guidance on educational programs and workshops.
