The cabin, the location on the river and the owners/staff were all first class! We enjoyed our first night so much that we stayed a second night to enjoy just being in the campground. We were on the road for over two weeks and the Carbondale/Crystal River cabin was by far the most relaxing place we stayed. Based upon this experience we will plan to stay at more KOA's in the future.

Stay in cabin #6 was awesome! The Crystal River rushing along put us to bed so peacefully. Staff were extremely helpful with suggestions for day trips. Penny Springs is just minutes away. Cabin was very clean, grounds are nestled between mountains and river. Thanks especially to Valerie. You are a big asset to this KOA!!

We had a family gathering there for our Dad's 90th birthday and really enjoyed our time there. Between the family cabins and RV sites you offer a variety of accommodations for all ages. Located in a beautiful area and being right on the Crystal river made for a banner visit. Thank you, hope to see you again.

The Crystal River Campground is great overall and this is such a beautiful location. I see that some of cabins have nice improvements especially the larger than studio ones since last time we were there. It is great to see.

We loved our fully stocked cabin. Easily one week's worth of hiking, off roading, etc in the nearby area. Very friendly staff. We loved our visit!

We stayed in a cabin for a family reunion. Though the one-bedroom layout was a little odd, we had plenty of room and enjoyed the patio and outdoor space. Everything was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed down to paper towels and dish soap.

Lovely 4-day weekend with friends and family. Very comfortable "camping", beautiful location, high quality amenities.

We enjoyed our stay at Crystal River. The site was clean and exactly as advertised. My only comment, which isn't bad, is it would have been nice to know that the cabins were duplex type buildings. It had no affect on our stay however. My wife and I are already planning another stay in the near future.

We held a family reunion at the campground for our 6 children and grandchildren. Our group had 3 cabins and 2 tent sites including the pavilion. Pavilion worked excellent for gathering to eat and also to hang out in when it was raining. Facilities were clean and the staff was friendly. Being on the Crystal River was a big plus. Cabins included everything needed for cooking.

This was our first time at a KOA and it was fantastic. The staff at the Crystal River KOA in Carbondale are so friendly and pleasant. The cabin and campground exceeded our expectations. We have already spread the news to our friends and family and we are planning our next visit. Thank you for a special time for our family.

We stayed two nights for a wedding this past weekend. While our cabin wasn't as updated as some of the others we saw on the grounds, we were very happy with the accommodations. Very clean, comfy beds, and really had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this campground.

Cabin 4 on the river was perfect for my needs. It is in a great location and laid out very nicely.
Aug 03, 2017
It is a great facility, the improved patios at the cabins was great! The cabin was good; however, it was a good thing we did not have our sixth person, as there would not have been room for sleeping space. Wish there were more kampgrounds with these emenities, in Northern Utah.

Although all the tent sites were unavailable, the staff was helpful to find us other nearby campgrounds and then we ended up coming back and got a great cabin right on the river. I really enjoyed the clean amenities in the cabin and hearing the rushing river just outside our door! Great location, a destination in and of itself!

Beautiful and quiet camp. Really enjoyed our stay.

The Crystal River flowing near our cozy cabin made this a very enjoyable stay! This campground is quiet and spotless, and we had a great time. (Wish the little water heater in the cabins produced a bit more hot water, though!)

This was a great place to stay! Very clean, people were so friendly and helpful . Loved the cabin by the river!!!!! The mattress sunk in the middle which was not comfortable and told them that when we checked out and said they would take care of it. Would absolutely stay here again!

My husband and I had a wonderful trip. We stayed in Cabin 5 right by the river. The cabin was clean and well appointed. It had everything we needed for a great week. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us many good ideas on where to fish and sightsee.The pool was clean and the area around it very nice.I only have one suggestion,maybe some towel hooks in the bathroom. A minor issue.

I was in a cabin; friends at two trailer spots. Fire pits, concrete pads and furniture at trailers were very nice. Cabin sparse, quite rustic, little counter space (particularly in bath/kitchen. Adequate but marginal.
Jul 17, 2017
We needed a place to stay last minute an they accommodated us. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are new and very clean.

Very clean and well kept. Staff very friendly, polite and helpful.

Overall this cabin was nice and spacious for our family and a great stay. Newly remodeled, kitchen was a nice plus. The only negatives for us was it was warm in the cabin during the day. Ceiling fans would be a plus, the lighting in the kitchen could be better, and the mattress on the queen bed in the "master" was very uncomfortable. If not a new mattress, a foam pad on the mattress would help.

Everything was better than I expected and my family and I had a wonderful time! We had a cabin that was comfortable and fully furnished for the five of us right along the Crystal River. Can't say enough, great location, great hospitality, and a great time!

This camp ground was fantastic. One could tell that they were trying to think of everything from a fenced in grassy area for dogs to play to the little touches inside our cabin. The linens were clean and the kitchen was well stocked with the basics. Even provide a brand new sponge for washing dishes to their guests along with detergent. That was impressive. We will definitely return!

We LOVED this KOA. Cabin was perfect. Access to fishing on the Crystal made my husband very, very happy! Lovely spot.
Jul 08, 2017
Absolutely wonderful. The cabins has recently been updated and are super cute, we called it glamping. The site is close to Glenwood springs. We drove to crested butte butts, about 2.5 hours, lovely drive.

well organized and managed, however changing some of the beds to something newer and firmer would make me a happy camper :)
