This is our second stay at this KOA and we just love it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The campground and all the building are very clean including the bathrooms and store. There is a lot to do at the campground. When my dad sliped and fell and badly injured him self down by the river Shirley was concerned and helped us find the closest Emergency room. Arts and crafts were so fun!

We had a great experience during our stay! We baptized our youngest son on 5/16/2015 in the river! Our Kabin (#8) was all it was advertised. The electric space heater which came with the kabin was useful as overnight temps did get into the 40's. Bathroom were clean. The on-site store had basic things to purchase, firewood too, at a reasonable price. Kids play area was safe. Miniature golf was fun!

Very nice and quiet are. Only complaint is the wifi is terribly slow- you only get 1 hr. a day and if you log on for 10 minutes then try and get on again- well that was your 1 hr. aday

Nice campground and beautiful settings but the fact that the recreation area was opened until 5pm only everyday made it a disappointing stay especially on our last night when it rained continuously and there were nothing for the children to do. Also, the limited 1-hr free internet service especially when there is no cellular coverage in the area made it for a pretty poor stay in my opinion.


We apologize for the rain. We do have free family board games for rainy days in the Cabins. The game room and store hours increase to 14 hours during the season, Memorial Day Weekend Through Labor Day Weekend, along with swimming pool, hayrides and other activities. We hope you come back.

Friendly hosts, immaculate campground, fishing not so good.


Yes, the fly fishing fell off with the rains and run off but bait and spinner fishing picked up. Rafting and kayaking are looking good. We hope to see you back when the river clears up!

Always enjoy my stay at Cotopaxi KOA. Great fishing in the area, and about midway between Salida and Canyon City for dining and entertainment options.

Our short stay was great! The KOA was clean and quiet with a great site next to the river. The prices in the KOA store were very reasonable and had just what we needed. A great KOA that we will recommend to others.

No water. This KOA was not ready to be opened.


We had bathrooms open with water, and RV sites with water; and a hose for those who wanted the cheaper sites without water.

One of my favorite places to camp. The deluxe tent site is perfect and the upgrades to the grounds with the new dog park, are great. Will be back!

This was our 4th stay at this KOA at Cotopaxi. We look forward to our getaway each year. This year we participated in the German dinner and thought the meal was very tasty. We have stayed at most of the KOAs in Colorado and truelay appreciate the consistancy of the service, sites, activities each offers. We will continue to make KOA our camping experiences of choice.

Great Place! My only wish was a cell phone tower close to this location. NOT KOA's fault
