Very nice park and staff except one older woman from Arizona (workcamper) in office and was quite snippy to people. Great hiking trails nearby. No pool but understand why. Grass very scruffy given that it's a desert.

Thanks for staying!

our site was very unlevel. Couldn't use step on RV very well because of a rise along the edge of the RV. No sewer in this site . Laundry room was very nice and machines worked well. Wifi doesn't work well like they claim. No Cable or TV stations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have that site on our schedule to regrade the rv pad, but it doesn't have much rise on the passenger side (where your door goes). Cable TV never got to our location. We were extremely full during your stay, which impacts the wifi bandwidth available. Sorry you weren't satisfied.

Beautiful site. Easy to set up the tent, no problem getting the stakes into the ground. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Nice rec room with pool table and ping-pong table. Sorry that I only stayed one night. Maybe longer next summer.

Place is ok but the staff was extremely rude and the upcharges a little crazy. I probably won't be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A little confused about the "up charges"- you only paid for the site there were no additional charges made during your stay, and the rate was exactly what you were quoted during your online reservation.

Office/cook shack should open at 7am for those campers that are awake earlier.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The cook shack was previously open at 7am, but we had *very* few guests having breakfast earlier than 8am, so we adjusted the hours.

Very well run, organized, and clean campground. The staff is classy, polite, and eager to help in any way they can. Clean bathrooms and showers. I will definitely be back for a return trip with family and friends.

We were only planning to stay 2 nights & extended to 5. Beautiful location and the owners keep the property maintained wonderfully. We were at the top of the grounds and it was a strenuous hike to & from the clean but dated bathroom. Also if I didn't hit it just right could only get lukewarm water. Not a deal breaker though & I would definitely stay here again. Great breakfast on site!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've set the water heater higher so we don't run short of hot water. It is July and busy!
Jul 24, 2016
Enjoyed our stay great views but did run out of hot water during a shower

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the hot water, we had an issue with the heater.

Nice and clean. Good accommodations. But too noisy during quiet times

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please let us know if someone is making too much noise after hours and we will gladly take care of it.

This KOA is exactly what family campsites should be like. The site is well maintained, the staff is friendly, and the views are fantastic. This is a great place to stay! Very close to many different types of activities and places.

As always (and we've been coming here for years), this is a fantastic place. I wish I could just live here year-round.

Nice park but a little dusty..we could only get 30 amp but that worked just find. Host were very friendly and the office/store was well equipped ..plenty to do in and around town..

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a high desert environment- dust comes with the territory! Thanks for staying!

One night stay needed with convenient pull thru. Site was ready, level, and close to bathrooms. Did not need anything special. Nice hiking trail and dog park for dogs.

Great staff! I didn't like the constant dust from cars coming in/out of the site but I know that is hard to control in a dry environment. Perhaps lightly watering the main roads 1-2x per day or planting more natural grasses would help.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not much grass successgully grows out here- we are trying to re use our water treatment waste brine for dust control- but it kills grass...

Not an experienced camper, I needed lots of help with just about everything in my RV. These patient and generous people were wonderful! Five sparkly stars!

The two girls at the front desk were great and very helpful...The water turned off at my campsite 3 times, once while showering (not so fun)..The day we were leaving we were in the process of hooking up the camper (literally hooking it up) and was reminded by one of the employees of 11 checkout (it was 11) and then we watched a class A pull in next to us?? Check in is at 3 right? You get my point.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Checkin is at 2, and we sadly have a lot of people who show up early. We try to accommodate them if we can. We do need to clean the sites between departure and arrival times. We are working on the water pressure issues, keeping it regulated when the park is full is not easy.

Everything was GREAT!! We stayed there 8 days and loved every minute thanks to Dom, Helen, their daughter and wonderful staff!! It was one of the best KOA's! If rafting, be sure to use River Runners. Ask for Andrea as your guide. Be sure to go into BV and go to Louie's for ice cream and also get a breakfast burrito from food truck at Adventure Hub! Thanks for all the great experiences! Chris

Was not very well kept. Tall weeds between the sights, not many trees at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are in a high desert location, so trees grow very slowly. We trimmed back a lot of brush between sites over the winter, and weeds have replaced brush. It's tough to trim the weeds when sites are occupied- we don't want to damage peoples campers!
Jul 18, 2016
My favorite of all the KOA's we've camped at. Only suggestion would be lots 61 thru 66 are facing the wrong way, in the morning you have shade when you want sun, and the evening you have sun when you want shade, we had lot P64. Otherwise love this KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It would be very difficult to relocate all the utilities in the row to the opposite side.

Great view of Mt Princeton and the Collegiate Range. Quiet. Just right.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks!

Facilities were clean. However the kamping cabins were up a very long hill away from the bathrooms and was very inconvenient. No a/c in the cabins since it gets so cold overnight but was very hot dury the day. Could have used ceiling fans in the cabins.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm confused- your cabin was right across the road from the bathrooms, and it is a newer cabin with ceiling fans. The older cabins would need to be rewired and have higher roofs to safely install ceiling fans.

We stay here a lot, but this time the water pressure was terrible...that needs to be fixed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are trying to figure out why the pressure was bad that weekend, and are working on it! Thanks for staying!

The folks were kind and helpful and the location was beautiful. Would be happy to stay there again.

Too many weeds

If it weren't for weeds there'd be nothing growing. We do work on cutting them.

My dog was attacked by a Pit Bull look alike while in the doggie potty area. I did not know that you allowed attack dogs at your KOA. Other than that it was a great campground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our pet policy is very clear that we allow all breeds, but dogs that are aggressive will be required to leave immediately without refund. This is the first we heard of this- did you inform the office?

We stayed on a tent site and it was well maintained and had good spacing from the other sites. The staff was extremely friendly, delivering the firewood to our campsite for us. The restrooms were clean and the store is well stocked with very reasonable prices. We will definitely stay here again!

Thank you!

Clean, cool (in summer) bathrooms. Nice dog park. We didn't like the dusty roads and sites. We wish we had known how much nicer the views and sites were up the hill. What really bothered us though was putting someone right next to us when the two sites qwew very close together when there were many similar sites that never filled. It didn't seem necessary to us and left us with bad feelings.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- you were in a site that gets afternoon shade, as does the one next to it. The "sites that didn't fill" don't get as much shade, and we try to be accommodating to all our guests. We do have dust, but are in a high desert environment and can't change that.
