We enjoyed the quietness of the campground and being able to camp right close to the river. Thank you.

Love the extra effort they always put in, this time including Day of the Dead themed arts and crafts. Super clean and friendly service.

The staff was welcoming and supportive. The campground was very well maintained and the showers and bathrooms very clean and we'll maintained. Great stay.

We love staying at our Cotopaxi KOA. RV sites are awesome and the staff is great. This has been an annual stop for over 10 years.

As a longtime return Cotopaxi KOA customer, I was very satisfied with the experience. The staff are very courteous and helpful. It remains my favorite "nearby" getaway.

Taken care of! Thanks.

Great place..enjoyed the stay but no Internet..and no phone made it difficult at times...for a nice relaxing place close to the river would still highly recommend.

We loved spot 74 at the very end. It was very private!
Sep 21, 2015
Great campsite close to showers, and great access to fishing.
Sep 21, 2015
It's a pretty campground near Salida and the Arkansas river for fishing. Hosts are friendly and helpful.

My site did not accommodate 2 slides and an awning without hitting trees. The fire pits throughout the camp are in need of replacing. Movable grill would be nice. The current ones in MOST sites were warped and quite small.

We were very happy to have stayed at the Cotopaxi KOA! The staff was genuinely friendly. We enjoyed the concrete pad with the built-in fire ring and extra table and chairs. Next time we'll ride the hayride. :)
Sep 21, 2015
This is a really nice place to stay and on most Saturday nights they have a hayride with an old John Deere tractor. The kids (and adults) love it

Dos and dog poop everywhere, unkempt in general, poorest KO A of all i have visited.

Had a great stay with family, love to camp at Cotopaxi will be back soon!

Full service (even in the deluxe patio sites) do NOT include sanitation. Also the wireless service previously provided has not been fixed yet so no phone nor wireless service.


Full Hook Ups DO include Sewer, Water and Electric. We have a free telephone for all, 24/7, as well as AT&T cell service.

I feel so safe at your campground so I love to come down by myself. I really enjoyed myself this last weekend, and the Pig Roast was so good. I look forward to getting down there a couple more times before the snow flies. Thanks Amy, you all Rock!!!!

We had a great time as always.

Great campground enjoyed my stay

This was our 4th summer visiting the Cotopaxi KOA and we love it! The sight and sound of the river, the clean grounds, and helpful staff helped make this our family's favorite KOA experience. The convenience to other attractions/activities is a plus. We can't wait to be back next year. :)

Labor Day Weekend. First time visit to this KOA. Cotopaxi is a hidden nugger. Great campground next to the Arkansas River. Small wading area 1/4 mile to the east great for splashing around.

it was ok but the lay out is all wrong where we were we could out it was a one way but had to come back in the same way couldn't turn around just need some adjustments
Sep 08, 2015
Loved every minute of it
Sep 08, 2015
very nice location to river - clean campground and restrooms
Sep 08, 2015
Positives: art, pool, hayride, playground, fire rings. Negatives: spaces too close, quality of river access (at least that which we found), quality of amenities at space.
Sep 08, 2015
Outstanding! Friendly and helpful staff. Grounds are maintained well. Thank you.
Sep 08, 2015
I really enjoyed this KOA. Although WiFi is limited, I really did not miss it.
Sep 08, 2015
Park was clean and accessible. Love having no lights at night - made star gazing awesome. We definitely will be back.
Sep 08, 2015
Our water connection was leaky. Some of the sites are very narrow and have wide trees that take up most of the site and make it difficult to extend an awning. The bathrooms were clean and nice. The kids enjoyed the playground and the dog park was nice to let the dogs off leash for awhile. Very quiet at night which was appreciated.
Sep 08, 2015
My campsite #39 had unkempt large bushes/trees that made getting around the campsite a challenge. Also created a very small area for campfire and table. Normally this KOA is a fabulous place to stay but this weekend the owners were crabby. I was told they were short-handed. The WiFi was non-existent. I always enjoy the ceramics, tie-dying, and hayrides. The location is beautiful.
Sep 08, 2015
This is one of my favorite Kampgrounds. The staff is friendly and over the top helpful. Can't wait to come back! Teri O"

Overall unfriendly and care less attitude was not typical of any KOA I've stayed at. Disappointing :(
Sep 06, 2015
We had just spent a week at a National Forest campground near Taylor Resorvior and were disappointed in how close the campsites were to each other. Loved being right on the Arkansas River.
Sep 02, 2015
Nice, right on the Arkansas River. Live attendant for night arrivals. As with any campground, there is always room for improvement, and that usually means bathrooms. And that cost money...but we love the location and the folks...
Sep 01, 2015
I was in site #74. I think it must be the best site in the whole campground. I will return again.
Aug 31, 2015
Had great time again
Aug 30, 2015
My wife, grandson and I had a wonderful time and plan on going back in the near future.
Aug 29, 2015
We look forward to our next visit!
Aug 26, 2015
I would stay here again. Everything is older and could use a little updating, but it's camping--right? Everything works great. Nice by the river.
