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

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.

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.

This is a destination KOA with the true feel of camping...gorgeous scenery, great service, and excellent access to all outdoor rec--would stay there for long stay!
Jun 26, 2015
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".

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.

As always when we stay here the staff is great and we alwaya have a good time. Keep up the good work!

Our stay was great. Our kids really enjoyed the playground and our dogs really enjoyed the enclosed run. Staff was very friendly. Thank you for everything!

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!

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.

Beautiful views.

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!

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.

Most sceanic campground I have stayed in with BLM next door it's a nice place.

Traffic noise will keep me from staying at any KOA except in dire circumstances. Because this kampground is almost a mile from the highway, we gave it a chance. Not happy with our choice. Mountain roads make a lot of noise: truck engines whine whether climbing or descending. Plus the view of that hideous little town below the kampground really trashes the view of Mt. Princeton.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Campground very clean and well kept. Fantastic view and great location near BV and Arkansas River.

The campsite has a lovely view of the mountains and is well maintained. It has a great store for needed RV and other supplies, as well as a laundry room and game room with a pool table and large screen TV. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful.

For the price.... It was not worth it.... They did not offer me the discount for my medical condition that all State Parks honor....

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry- we aren't a state park and have no knowledge of your medical condition. We do offer KOA Value Kard discounts and discounts to active duty military.
Jun 05, 2015
This is one of our most favorite places to camp!
Jun 04, 2015
The new owners are awsome. They have been working hard to bring the koa back to its former glory. Love it!
Jun 03, 2015
the camp ground is nicely situated near BLM hiking trails. Could use some paved spots in parking areas. My 23 foot Airstream was sandwiched between to large motor homes and given the tight parking spaces was somewhat claustrophobic. I have stayed at this site many times but will opt for other than full service sites on future visits due to tight space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have worked to cut back the brush around sites to open them up, we'll focus on the one you stayed in. Can't control the size of RV's who come in. We will be keeping our gravel roads and parking areas to keep the park rustic.

Clean & many of the employees nice. Served free coffee & breakfast for a fee which was nice. However, we had baseball tickets for Denver that we needed to print out & even though they had a printer & we offered to pay the owner said no. In Denver the campground did it for free.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry but we will not connect a USB stick from an unknown location into our office computers, just too many viruses out there.
