Our site was right on the Arkansas river with a great view of the rocky mountain canyon. Lots of family activities with a busy helpful and friendly staff
Aug 23, 2013
Lots of open tenting spots, now that the kids are back in school. Too bad it was cloudy, I heard the stars are beautiful in the canyon, but listening to the Arkansas River was delightful.

The gnats were horrible - could they have been sprayed. Bathrooms were very clean. The grounds were not nearly as nice as we would expect from a KOA - especially considering the price.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and Store were clean. Would like to see a light added to dog run area, very dark. Prizes at events need to be more age appropriate for teens.

Great location and staff.

The stay was good - staff was eager to assist. We were there for a group outing and because the group area was far away from our sites they let us use another site for meeting area.

Activities were well recieved. Weekend was enjoyable. Bugs NOT so much.

Very nice campground. People are very friendly and the facilities are very clean. This is our second time there this summer and will definitely go back!

I enjoyed all the activities they had to offer. This trip we did tie-die shirts. Family participation is encouraged. We also took a western family photo in front of the wagon. Always love the hay ride and ice cream social. The campground is well-kept, restrooms are clean, and most sites are shaded. They have a nice dog run for the dogs to play and do their business.

Arrived very late without a reservation because we were told there were lots of open spaces and there were. The internet tent price says $35, their sign says, "Tent $25" and our bill was over $40. In the middle of the night without any additional price info at their self check in stand we choose a site that looked like all the others, but in the morning were informed we choose the most expensive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Guest came to us based on family rate web site quote of $35.00 for 2 adults and 2 children, but only paid $31.30 for her site, even after choosing a nicer site! Guest had extra people, etc. and taxes which pushed the rate to $40.77.

this place is something else rivers, mountains just awsome. The staff are very nice people and helpful with directions and information, thank you for a great stay, see you next year.

It's a drag staying places where they're too cheap to buy enough internet bandwidth. Fast internet it critical to most people these days. Some redemption in that Jim listened to my complaint and got mine working, albeit slowly. Great dog park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is no cable, DSL, fiber optic, microwave, wireless, or cell service available for miles and our guests could not afford to bring it in. Just dial-up and satellite. We pay a premium for the best available commercial satellite. We are not cheap.

Of course the location of this KOA right on the Arkansas river automatically makes it amazing but the staff was very friendly as well. Had a wonderful stay!

If you love fishing and a real camping experience this is the KOA to visit. The only negative was the bugs (gnats and flies) - so bring plenty of bug spray.

Nice place to stay.

Sometimes, being off the grid is a great thing. Relaxing not being able to check phone or email and just relax....

I try to make it to Cotopaxi KOA at least once a season. Great location, and very handy for fishing the Arkansas.

We spend most our time in a cabin with the kitchenette. It was cute but tit really needed new pots and pans. We love cooking and we would not use them because they are dangerous and disgusting. But the staff was fantastic except the old grumpy guy who charged our credit card for a late fee without telling us we would incur a late fee and without our permission, which is illegal.

This is the first time we've been camping since we've been in Colorado and I'm so happy we picked this place to go to! It was amazingly peaceful and such a nice place! My kids loved the hayride and ice cream social! Great things to do here!!

We have stayed here every year for the past four. We have enjoyed it every time. We plan a week here every summer for st least the next five.

We had a deluxe sight by the river, and a great view of the river. Our second time there.

I think the WI-FI is not listed correctly in the KOA book it should say LIMITED WI-FI for E-Mail only 1HR every 24hrs

Very relaxing. Great staff. Can't wait to go back and spend more time there.

Friendly and helpful. Great scenery. Clean and quiet.

Staff were all very accommodating. Enjoyed my stay. Campground has some drainage issues and is showing age. The mens bathroom shower stalls are a bit cramped. None of these are huge issues, but worthy of comment. Like I said, we enjoyed our stay and would visit again.

Lovely staff. Ceramics on Saturday is a great idea, we loved it. Lovely location with the river running behind the park. We had a nice time at this park

We had a lovely time! We loved the sound of the river, as well as the cool evenings! The dog run kept our dog sane and made camping fun for him too. There was plenty to do, and our sons and daughter loved playing pool at the game room. Hiking was fun and going down to the river was as well. Lovely surroundings. The gnats dissipated in the cool of the evening. Great, quiet stay.

Friendly staff, clean facilities, nice amenities. Love the hayride! The location, which is right along the river, is so easy to get to from Colorado Springs and is peaceful, quiet and beautiful.

Love love love Cotopaxi KOA!!!

people were nice. Stayed right on the river. They have added some sites with little patios and furniture. Real nice
Jul 29, 2013
I really enjoyed our visit! The pottery on Saturdays was awesome! Everyone is so very friendly. I also enjoyed the free tracker ride and ice cream social. The camp sites are too close together but I really enjoyed getting to know other individuals. We will definitely be back!

One night, can't control the rain, still had a great stay.
