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!

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.

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!

Too many weeds

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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!

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.
Jul 13, 2016
Staff was nice. Place was clean. Though the showers were pretty small for a full park. Would return for sure. Great place.

This is our fourth stay and it is a destination campground for us. We love the Cook Shack food and the campground, itself. Suggestions: I would love to be able to request a particular cabin at reservation and actually get it upon arrival. Also, some staff not so friendly as others. But both problems don't reduce my rating of this great campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming! If you do want a particular cabin or site for a stay please call us to make a reservation- internet reservations don't always get looked at in a timely fashion.
Jul 13, 2016
The place is beautiful, Mt. Princeton in background. I liked everything except the campgrounds really felt stacked on top of each other, with little privacy. I was forced to listen to neighboring campers' conversations. Other than that, the experience was very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay- it's tough to fit sites with the areas that are suitable for putting up tents.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location. Spots are way too close together though, there is no privacy and every night our neighbors to the right and left packed up loudly at 4 a.m.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are working within the design of a 50+ year old campground.

we stayed two nights in a 27 foot travel trailer. Best feature of this campground is the view, and it is stupendous. Wifi worked well, washrooms and facility overall very clean. Staff are very friendly. Campstore is well stocked with essentials. Our favorite location for exploring the Arkansas River Valley.

Wireless needs upgrade

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wireless performance is good when the campground is less busy, but on holiday weekends we are limited in bandwidth.
