We have spent Memorial Day at this campground for years. It is maintained very well. There are many activities in the campground. Kids love it!There is easy access to the river for fishing. The scenery is beautiful. The owners and the staff are wonderful.

This is our second stay at this KOA and we just love it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The campground and all the building are very clean including the bathrooms and store. There is a lot to do at the campground. When my dad sliped and fell and badly injured him self down by the river Shirley was concerned and helped us find the closest Emergency room. Arts and crafts were so fun!

Friendly hosts, immaculate campground, fishing not so good.


Yes, the fly fishing fell off with the rains and run off but bait and spinner fishing picked up. Rafting and kayaking are looking good. We hope to see you back when the river clears up!

Always enjoy my stay at Cotopaxi KOA. Great fishing in the area, and about midway between Salida and Canyon City for dining and entertainment options.

Our short stay was great! The KOA was clean and quiet with a great site next to the river. The prices in the KOA store were very reasonable and had just what we needed. A great KOA that we will recommend to others.

No water. This KOA was not ready to be opened.


We had bathrooms open with water, and RV sites with water; and a hose for those who wanted the cheaper sites without water.

This was our 4th stay at this KOA at Cotopaxi. We look forward to our getaway each year. This year we participated in the German dinner and thought the meal was very tasty. We have stayed at most of the KOAs in Colorado and truelay appreciate the consistancy of the service, sites, activities each offers. We will continue to make KOA our camping experiences of choice.

Solid service. Far too many yappy little dogs barking all the time in the absence of their owners. Big rig owneres should be required to take their dogs with them when they leave the RV and drive away.

This is a beautiful campsite with great staff. Great bike trails and close to the river. We really enjoyed the art/craft day and had fun with all the other campers. We will definitely be back and recommend this site to everybody!

the KOA staff tried hard to make this stay the best experience possible. Would appreciate in the future on the reservation site what features are more important than others to the campers.

Gorgeous scenery, great place! We will definitely return! We loved being able to fish right from the property, and we loved the trails for walking.
