We have come to this KOA since the 70's to camp and fish. My kids used the pool and playground then, and we hope to bring the grandkids soon. Love the sites down at the bottom of the property

Campground is a little tight for 40' Class As, but once you get situated the stay will be very nice. Site 29 was pretty quiet, had lots of space, and was close enough to the river to be there in less than half a minute. Not a lot of hiking or biking trails nearby, so plan to drive a bit if those activities are on your agenda. Gorgeous canyon and spectacular views! No direct-connect propane fills.

We reserved site 24,26, or 28 as these were as "most popular". We were assigned #26. Problem with 26 was a giant tree just about where most travel trailer doors are and picnic table was located up next to the tow vehicle. Couldn't use the awning for the tree. Was nice Wi-fi didn't work too well, we actually talked to one another! KOA river access is dangerous. BLM access for fishing are safer.

You will not find a better campground. Jim and Amy are great hosts. All staff are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are always very clean. Our 3 year old loves the swimming pool, playground, and most of all the tractor ride! We will be back next summer!

Everything was fine at this KOA and I'll likely return, but I don't understand the internet use policy of 1 hr per 24 hrs. I used less than 1 hr on two days and was still charged w/ full hr use. No other KOAs I've stayed in have this policy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All get 1 free full hour/24 hours. You couldn't have paid for full hour use. We only charge for full 24 hour access. Most KOA's have fiber, cable, DSL, T-1, microwave, wireless or cell available. None of that is available here. Just expensive commercial satellite. Sorry. It bothers us too.

Would like to have increased access to Wi-Fi.

We stayed along the river in a premium site with concrete patio. The site was very spacious but not very secluded. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

My first stay at a KOA. Friendly staff, and about everything you need in the store. Good access to the river,but the fish are kinda stubborn. Enjoyable stay. I hope to come back.

The people were very friendly. I would have like to seen the fire pit in a different location not next to the camper, site 70. Will be back next year.

Too close to Hwy 24, but a nice area

We enjoyed our stay. Great friendly people, nice accommodations and very clean. Respectful, helpful neighbor campers.

Jim, Amy and Thunder are excellent hosts. We've been camping at Cotopaxi KOA and enjoy it more and more with each visit. They've become wonderful friends. We haven't found any other KOA as great as this one.

Not up to KOA standards. They have a "Speed Bump" on their access road that is much to high. After having my dishes rearranged I got on the CB and let the other 3 couples traveling with us know about the size of the "bump". The second person in line had their freezer door fly open and stuff hit the floor. The third person blocked the entrance such that the 4th RV was still on the highway.

You need to get reid of the speed bump as you enter the park. We came into the park with 4 big rigs. The speed bump is at an angle to the drive where one tire on hits it then the other side tire hits it. This causes the RV cabinet doors to open in some cases and items fall out. The most serious thing was with each of us trying to go slow over speed bump the last rig was left with tow in the road.

Overall very good. Getting a vehical with trailer in and out is difficult.

The cost was too high for a holiday weekend. The cost should stay the same all year long. The parking was terrible due to camp parking. If you wanted to pull out a camper, you whould have to ask people to move their vehicle. The tent sites were on top of each other so our friends had to leave early due to noise and spot lights being left on all night. The trees were over grown near the dump.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Labor Day Weekend was 100% booked and we have to agree with some of what you say. We encourage you to try us on a non-holiday weekend. Thanks for the input.
Sep 03, 2013
only 2 things I would change at this campground is: Level the trailer pads. Add Steps down to the river in two locations to avoid injuries.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree and hope to take steps to address these concerns. Thanks for the feedback.

Nice staff, but the grounds need work. Fire pits were in terrible disrepair, trash barrels over flowing and not-so-clean bathrooms. Probably will not return to this one.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are constantly working on the grounds but agree with your comments. We encourage you to try us again when we are non 100% full on a holiday weekend. You get better site selection, etc. Thanks for the feedback.

we liked all the activities available for our 2 grandchildren in the park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Being next to the river was a big pulse. being next to US 50 was not as bad as it could be since the traffic was light and very little at night. WE will return.
