Was OK, very crowded. WiFi weak.

IT was our first time traveling in our RV and this place was made for easy travel and easy hook ups. Thank you!

Excellent. Would love to return and stay longer. Beautiful. Quiet when we were there before the summer rush. Saw Bighorns in meadow across highway twice in 24 hours. Level space.

The restrooms need new curtains in the windows. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Campground looked good with the new renovations.

Very peaceful and well kept on a beautiful location next to the Arkansas River. Very family motivated plenty to do at the campsite and in the surrounding area.

The benefit of 'camping' at a KOA is enjoying the amenities. On the website for this KOA, it lists WI-FI as available. There is no wifi, and no cell service...which is fine if communicated ahead of time. But that came as quite a shock considering it's listed on the website.

Very enjoyable weekend at the Cotopaxi KOA. Clean, on the river and with much less road noise than expected.

Warm friendly owners & staff. Some new tent areasa with colored concrete, new gravel & landscaping. Noticed older areas throughout park need attention. Grass areas & dog run grass all need more watering. Pool area shrubs & surroundings really need work before pool opens.

We really looked forward to this stay and left disappointed. Site was not level, next to impossible to drive out of pull-thru and had to back out, goat head stickers throughout the site and pet area, excessive traffic noise, no Wi-Fi, minimal river access and the list goes on. We loved the area, the seclusion from towns/cities but we will not be staying here again.

Nice campground right on the Arkansas river. Your signage could stand some paint, so it doesn't look so run down!

This KOA did not meet our standard of KOA services. We found the staff unfriendly and the amenities lacking. We will not stay here again. 1) Advertises WiFi, but posted signs ask campers not to use WiFi and only to view static websites. Better to confess no WiFi and no cellular service. 2) Unable to apply KOA discount at check in 3) Unfamiliar with local hiking, only know fishing

It is always a pleasure to stay here.

Great campground next to river and very friendly host....only negative was the lack of cold water in shower.. had fun.....but the fish need to cooperate a little more...
Apr 26, 2017
Great site, great staff! We would love to visit again.
Apr 25, 2017
This is a great campground. Always clean and well taken care of. Best campground on the river. Great fishing, literally just a few steps to the river.

Nice KOA right on the river. A little pricey for the actual river sites, so would recommend the regular sites as they are close enough to the river to see and hear.

Always friendly, clean and making updates. Geat central location

We love this KOA. It's old fashioned family fun. We have the most fun during their themed weekends but always have a great time anytime we stay here. It's a beautiful location with great hosts.

Beautiful location, clean, friendly staff, ( one staff member game my sons quarters to Play pool, very nice as we had no cash!) rec room, mini golf. My kids really loved it! The Arkansas river was lovely and we liked that Koa had the river running right next to it. Very enjoyable place to stay! Thanks so much!

We had a very nice stay. Bathrooms are clean and close. Only get 1 hour of free Wifi per day, but can buy it. Sites slope down an little so sewer line was draining uphill a little. Nice staff!! Ice cream social. Clean property and close to Salida or Royal Gorge. Looking forward to going back next year.

Great stay to bad fish wasn't biting 😀😀

Nice setting and friendly hosts. just a little over priced for a KOA without TV or Internet. Watching the pot smokers next door was a hoot for us old Texans.

Outstanding time along the Arkansas. Have stayed before, but this time we missed the hay rack ride. Must of been off season.
Oct 03, 2016
It was relaxing! The campground is set in a breathtaking canyon where the Arkansas River is accessible for fishing, rafting & just enjoying the views. We stayed for approx two months most days driving in the mountains on the passes, most were very bumpy but several were really scary yet fun. The campground is centrally located from all the natural & manmade attractions so we get to relax & enjoy!

Badly in need of repair & renovation. 1 free hr in 24 hrs of very poor wifi. U must pay extra for more wifi. Bathrooms & laundry are old & dirty looking. Poor drainage in showers--standing in water while taking shower. Campsites have HUGE thorns that stick in yur shoes and pets feet. Staff very nice. Scenery is pretty. Little shade. Very tired & old looking.

The KOA is great for the location and purpose of really getting away. Some sites were not quite level and sewage connections seem to run uphill and are quite a distance from the rig to the drain... Due to locale, 'goat head' thorns are a real issue for the pets. No cell service, radio,TV,cable, wifi for 1 hr daily. Having said all that: the staff & managers were gracious, wonderful, helpful

The reservation system is either antiquated or the operators do not understand the system , we settled for a site after reserving a different site and was told that site was booked only to go all week with that site empty

We had a great time at this KOA. They had lots of activities for the kids. They hayride is always fun and the ceramics studio is always a hit. However, the website said that the heated pool was open to the end of September. We chose this KOA over others particularly for that reason and were disappointed to find that the pool was closed. Overall, we really like this koa.
