We stayed one night and thought the campground was very nice. We were in a cabin by the river and enjoyed the sounds of the river flowing past.

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!

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.

I stayed in K-6. I have a camper, but thought the weather would be ugly, so I rented a kabin so that I would not have to put up a wet camper if it rained all weekend. It was nice and quiet, and I enjoyed myself as I always do. See you next month if not before!!!! Hope the fishing will be better in October,as this was the first time I got skunked!

Great location, convenient via Hwy 50, but far enough from CO Springs to have peace and quiet, great night sky view. Facilities were good, Kamping Kabin was great. People very nice. Highly recommend.

The Arkansas River was impressive behind our Kamping Kabin. The tent and RV river sites are great, too.

Our stay was great. Our cabin was clean and the site was very nice. There were people all around us, but we never felt crowded. Thanks for having us!!

We stayed 6 nights at this KOA. The campsites and restrooms were clean, the staff friendly and helpful. If ever in the area again I would definitely return for a stay at the Cotopaxi/Arkansas River KOA

My dad took me there as a kid...and now I take my children there. A little piece of heaven on earth for every age ;)

The staff was very friendly. The restrooms were very clean. It was a pretty location right next to the river. My kids loved the pool and the playground. We even enjoyed three rounds of mini golf. They have fun activities like making your own tie die t-shirt, hay rides, and ice cream socials. Cabins were a little close to each other but we still had a great time.

I've been staying at this KOA for about 11 yrs. I've tent kamped, trailer kamped, and now, I've kabin kamped. The ownership and staff (Shirley and Co.)have always kept a clean, well-stocked, friendly facility. My daughters are grown now, but they loved this KOA when they were young. This is always my first choice in kamping.

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!

I have always enjoyed this campground for the past 28 years. It is well maintained, they continually add enhancements to the sites like new trees, cabin pads, fire rings. we will be back again this year & next

We had so much FUN!!!! Great Kampgrund!

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
