Campground Reviews

Jun 21, 2013
I understand that they were building a new bath house, but one flush toilet and one shower for the whole camp ground in my opinion is not satisfactory. The campground has a long way to go to meet the standards of a KOA.

Wish we never had to leave. We got lucky when we found this place (we weren't even looking for a place!) Staff is great!

Cynthia at the desk was the BEST! The entire camp is being revamped so not all the amenities were available, but it's going to be extremely nice when finished. Beautiful location.

Great KOA cabins! Enjoyed having the creek right outside our cabin.

The staff was very friendly. This camp ground just became a KOA and is in transition. At this time they really don't have any amenities. We thought the price was high considering what was just stated. This was our first experience with a KOA campground. We are new owners of a 5th wheel and so campgrounds are a new experience. The WiFi was very weak - disappointing.

Even though this place is still undergoing some construction, it's still a breat place to stop. It's right on the river and right next to one of the best motorcycle roads in Colorado. Need I say more...

The setting at this camp ground is amazing. While we were there, the new building for showers, etc, was being built, and the pool was being rebuilt, so we didn't get to enjoy those things, but I'm sure they'll be great when ready. The staff is SO friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Poor Communication of decision to prohibit campfires. Website needs to state "campfires allowed but subject to local conditions". Front desk was unmanned much of the time. Is a very nice location, just needs some work.

once the updates are done it will be a beautiful campground.

I was disappointed that I was not told that the pool was not open. I feel I should have been offered a chance to cancel because of this.

I thought it was full hook ups but it wasn't. the bathrooms are unfinished and it was extremely hard to find even with a directory

Loved the stay here. Backed our 5th wheel into spot #7 on the river. Very level and lots of space and trees. Only gave a 4 star as it was still in building mode of the bath house and noisy during day. When finished, I'm sure this will be a 5 star. Great location to area activities: Maroon Bells, Redstone, Marble, etc. Great paved walking/biking path all the way into Carbondale.

no TV and bed was worn out. Pics on website were not anything like our unit. People were very nice and area was under construction and appeared to be adding a very nice shower facility for the camping and RV area but we were expecting a nice little cabin for the price we paid. We were pretty disappointed in our unit but the RV and camping area looked like a nice facility.

Did not spend much time in camp. Used it as a base to bicycle. Appreciate the improvements.

Setting was awesome! Right on the river. They were very upfront when we booked our reservation about their remodeling they have underway. (New bathhouse) also their is a blacktop bike trail right outside the main gate that takes you all the way to town. Will definitely stay again.

This KOA will be great once all the renovating is finished. We really had a good time and having use of one of the cabins during the construction phase of the bath house was nice. The river is so close to the tent sites and it's very peaceful. The road is close too, but luckily not very busy. Overall a great place for a family camping trip.

We were disappointed that there were no full hook up sites with sewer . When I made the reservation I requested sewer also ... but was not told there was no sewer . It also would have been nice to know there was no bath house available. It was under construction .

Very small roads not easy to turn around with a big rig towing a car. I Understand they were doing some remodeling but should inform us that it was close quarters.

Still under construction & web page very very mis-leading on the facilities offered,no showers or restrooms, only one porta potty that hadn't been emptied, one shower was offered in a cabin for the whole camp, no swimming pool, must admit we where very very disappointed. What made up for it was most of the other campers were friendly as they all felt the same as us.

Very beautiful campground with well equipped cabins. There are a lot of improvements being made to the campground that will make it spectacular. I loved the new patios and the beautiful scenery. Was a great weekend away for us-we'll definitely do it again!

Still a work in progress to become full on KOA. The bathhouse wasn't finished yet, so they provided a cabin to use the toilet and shower. They did provide a nice porta-potty but that wasn't enough. Wifi not working and no amenities yet. I will still come back, anxious to see it when it's done! Plus beautiful river to camp by! Quiet considering near hwy!

I called to make a reservation for one night and the owner asked if we were fully contained -- did we have a bathroom and shower and I said yes but I did not know why. We drove for 90 minutes to get there and found out there was no bathroom, no shower or no laundry -- and the price was as if we had full hookup. We should have been apprised of this before we arrived -- or been charged less money.

This campground is undergoing construction to upgrade the facilities and camp sites. It is difficult to recommend this park in it's present condition. I think when all improvements are complete this will be an excellent destination. The location is beautiful, staff is friendly and helpful and anxious to complete needed improvements.

This CG is very old and wasn't taken care of. The picnic tables are extremely old and the paint on them is curled and falling off.The store is nothing more than a few snacks.There is a complete lack of maintenance here.The location is beautiful though and you are next to a river but overgrowth prevents you from enjoying it. Note the Owners are updating but are a couple years off being KOA quality.

We stayed here two years ago Memorial Day weekend before KOA. It was empty. It has since changed to a KOA and it was nearly packed. It was more expensive and the old bathhouse was gone and a new one was under construction and unavailable. We were given access to one port-a-potty and one single-shower cabin for showers. We waited on others for hours each night just to potty and to shower.

Let me make TWO things clear, right here--1. The staff were friendly and helpful. 2. I realize this campground is undergoing rebuilding. That said there is NO WAY this is anywhere near being up to what we expect from KOA.Originally booked a tent site, needed to upgrade to a cabin due to weather. $100/night is silly.
May 22, 2013
This is a new site to KOA and is in process of upgrading, It is got the potential to be a superb site; we enjoyed our stay very much.
May 15, 2013
Perfect area to stay for fly fisherman. Host was helpful. Cabins were clean and had everything we needed.
