Another great stay! Dom and Helen are great hosts and are working hard to make this a great campground experience.

Great place to stay where you can be in the outdoors, but have all the comforts of home available when you need them. I would have given them a 10, but I was a little disapponted that they don't have meals at the campground on all days.

It was a great stay and i would do it again The only problem was where the sewage dump station was located

Excellent and very helpful staff. Being mid way between Buena Vista and River Runners rafting it was very handy. The 'Jade Garden' is great for Chinese takeaway's :}/ I would suggest you make kitchen facilities and BBQ area available.

This place is amazing. The owner is awesome, involved, helpful. It was my first time staying in a KOA and I will be back. Also the couple who are helping out this summer were amazing. The women's bathroom backed up, and they were out shoveling and repairing for many hours after dark. Thank you very much.

What an awesome campground! We had a perfect view across the valley towards the collegiate peaks, and couldn't have been happier!

We enjoyed our stay except for the rain shower on Friday night. The breakfast and ice cream were great. The cabins could use a ceiling fan.

Nothing against KOA or the employees, but I wish all camping guests were as friendly and welcoming as the employees and staff.

Friendly, caring people. Helpful. A lot of commodities available onsite, some with onsite delivery. Warm showers & laundry very nice.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Views were fantastic from the campground and everything was kept neat, clean and organized. Thank you for a good stay.

It was a great place for the area. Arid climate hence so not much grass in park.

RV slot was a dirt road, not level, with hookups on the wrong side. The picnic table was surrounded by tall weeds and next to sewer connection. There was no water pressure in the morning or evening. Was told it comes back when everybody's done showering. ?? When we left early we got charged for TWO EXTRA DAYS as a penalty. One night = $150. Never going back to ANY KOA!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site has hookups on both sides. You came in late on your second day and were extremely rude to our desk staff, used foul language, and we refunded half of your remaining stay- even though your signed receipt clearly stated "No refunds for early departures".

Our camp spot was by a nice rock formataon and was quiet and private the views were great!

We really liked this campground. The hosts and staff were very friendly and helpful. The views were gorgeous. We had #9 cabin which required a rather walk to the BRs but it was an ideal spot for our choc lab. We were sorry our schedule did not allow us to stay longer. We do look forward to coming back in the future. Joy & Dave Roslien

Beautiful views from many spots in the park. Lots of amenities - dog park, playground, hiking trail, sat nite ice cream,weekend breakfasts and pizza, volleyball, large campsite. The new owners are working very hats to make this a great campground.

campground was clean, workers were friendly, amenities were great, views were absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much we're already planning another trip back before the fall

We were yelled at for using hammocks for which no one told us we could not use when we entered the camp, nor was it included in the list of rules we were given. This particular staff member (which claimed to be the owners wife) was very rude about it. Other than that, our stay was better than expected.

This is a basic, no frills, over-priced campground. Nicely spaced, semi-level, gravel/dirt sites. Token landscaping. All roads are dirt. No amenities. Didn't use restrooms/showers/laundry.
Jun 19, 2015
I thought it was very will kept and the owner and employees were very helpful and courteous. The cost of KOA campgrounds is getting rather high and I am thinking about looking into other campgrounds. Next week we will be paying approx. $68 per night which is ridiculous! This is at Steamboat Sprgs, CO. The one at Rock Sprgs, Wyo. is terrible being all rock and the dust storms they get!

Very good.

My husband received a stern reprimand/lecture for taking our trash to the dumpster instead of leaving it at our site. I think that was completely unwarranted and soured our experience at this particular KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have added trash pick up service at our sites as we had to lock our dumpsters to keep non guests from dumping trash in them. Sorry but we don't want trash left next to the dumpsters.

Great Place and Nice Staffs

The staff was SO kind! They were eager to help in any way they could. And they offered a free cup of milk at breakfast. I loved coming here as a kid and I'm happy to bring my kids here!
Jun 15, 2015
Beautiful views.
Jun 15, 2015
The ONLY thing that is missing from this KOA that we've experienced at other KOAs was a pool. Owners & staff are wonderful! The family really enjoyed the Ice Cream Social.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

None of the campgrounds in the area have pools as we are at 8000 feet and the heating cost would be huge. We also are on a well with limited water, so pool refilling isn't something we can do. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Jun 14, 2015
Wonderful, cheerful staff. Great views and nice extras.
Jun 14, 2015
It was very nice, beautiful views, but as a full-time rv'er, and on a fixed income, it was WAY too expensive! $155 for 3 nights is a bit steep for someone who stays at a campground constantly while traveling. Other KOA'S we stayed at were only $30 a night for full hook-ups.
