Cabin Reviews

Jul 28, 2014
WE stayed in a KK and the one we were assigned was very close to the on next door. It would be nice if we were with that family. The table benches are in desperate need of paint, so any time we sat on it we got up and had to brush paint chips off. The cabin itself was comfortable and the grounds were pleasant.

Fun, clean, lots to do, always a great heated pool, and a nice getaway from our house in Colorado Springs.

Location great for rafting. Pool closed a negative also wifi did not work. Bathrooms were not as clean as most KOAs I have been to but probably due to large group at campground.


The pool has been open every day all day from 10:00 am (usually earlier) until 9:00 pm all summer long.

This was a great campsite! We were able to stay right by the river, which was fantastic. Loved that there was a courtesy phone to use since there's little to no cell service. Very clean facilities, although a couple shelves in the showers would be great!


Sorry about the missing shower caddies. They have all been replaced with new ones. We hope to see you again!

We love the secluded location on the Arkansas River. Many family events are offered for entertainment. Great playground! They even have mini golf! Close to numerous white water rafting companies. Great trout fishing! We frequent this KOA every summer!

We loved Cotopaxi! Clean, walked down to watch the river. People were extremely friendly. Great hayrack ride!

We had a blast! We stayed in a cabin and my parents pitched a tent along the river. The "extras" (like the tractor rides and ice cream socials) really took the experience above our expectations. Thanks to the owners/workers for their attention to detail and clean facilities. We will definitely be back again! -The Loveladys

Nice staff, beautiful location, good amenities. It would be perfect if the secured the shower caddies to the wall so that they don't drop on your feet.

It was perfect. The cabin was comfortable, the warm and clean showers were welcome after a day of fishing, the store had pretty much anything you would need. This was the first time I stayed at a KOA and I was extremely impressed! I have already been telling friends and co-workers about it!

This KOA has a no-frills feel despite several options for (family) fun. Nice off-leash play area for the dogs, too! Air hand-dryer in the Ladies Room was broken, so had to drip-dry. Hayride was cancelled because their tractor wouldn't start, but that didn't diminish our overall experience. We really enjoyed our stay & look forward to visiting this KOA again!

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.

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!

Nice place to stay.

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.


Check out is 11:00, others arriving at 2:00, can't clean if people don't leave. Guest signed agreement to pay additional charges.

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.

My family & I had a wonderful time staying at KOA Cotopaxi!!! I would highly recommend everyone to stay there and my family & I will return :)

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.

I have planned our family annual trip for the past 28 years & have never been disappointed. I always recommend them to friends

Everyone was friendly, the grounds were very well kept, considering the recent events (fires in the area and some flash floods). Amy and Jim have a wonderful staff who assist with the dailies. The. Store is well stocked, there is a hay rack ride a couple times a week and movies each night. Wifi limited to an hour a day, which is as it should be! It's time to unplug! Watch the hummingbirds!
