Many sites need to be levelled.Some sites had sewer lines going uphill. Good to see that more trees were being planted.

We had a very nice stay and we were glad we got the campsite we did, because the campsites were a little smaller then expected. We loved having all the amenities.

Great amenities, friendly staff and well kept grounds.

I've stayed here before and enjoyed it but there were a few hitches this time... The pool wasn't functioning properly & that was a big draw for my kids so we probably wouldn't have come if we'd known that. Also there was a hay ride they wanted to do which left before the stated time & drove past us with an empty wagon. It was just a little off! Hopefully these are just early season issues.

This KOA was nice except for the tent areas. The wood deck had warped boards which had pulled loose so we put rocks and table legs on them to prevent tripping. The gas grill hadn't been cleaned ever and the hinges on the lid were broken. The railing on the deck, 15 feet above the river were tied on with scraps of rope. The campsite fire pit is 100 feet away by a huge pile of concrete trash

We loved being right next to the river and in the mountains! The grounds were clean and everyone was very friendly.

Lots of open tenting spots, now that the kids are back in school. Too bad it was cloudy, I heard the stars are beautiful in the canyon, but listening to the Arkansas River was delightful.

Very nice campground. People are very friendly and the facilities are very clean. This is our second time there this summer and will definitely go back!

Arrived very late without a reservation because we were told there were lots of open spaces and there were. The internet tent price says $35, their sign says, "Tent $25" and our bill was over $40. In the middle of the night without any additional price info at their self check in stand we choose a site that looked like all the others, but in the morning were informed we choose the most expensive.


Guest came to us based on family rate web site quote of $35.00 for 2 adults and 2 children, but only paid $31.30 for her site, even after choosing a nicer site! Guest had extra people, etc. and taxes which pushed the rate to $40.77.

Sometimes, being off the grid is a great thing. Relaxing not being able to check phone or email and just relax....

This is the first time we've been camping since we've been in Colorado and I'm so happy we picked this place to go to! It was amazingly peaceful and such a nice place! My kids loved the hayride and ice cream social! Great things to do here!!

We had an amazing time!!! Such great amenities but still with an amazing outside atmosphere. We will definitely be coming back.

Okay for our need for the evening, however campsites are small and too close together. Maybe okay for smoe, but not for us.

Staff was not overly friendly and the grounds were poorly maintained. We stayed there because it is one of the few CO KOA's with a pool.

Loved this place. I did have an issue with the Kampground banning charcoal grills. The county had a fire ban but that usually doesn't included private kamprounds so I think this was a ban set by the owners of this KOA. We felt this was overkill. It would be highly unlikely that a small charcoal grill in a cement fire pit or ring would start a wildfire in a private campground.
Jul 01, 2013
Very easy to find and had all the amenities we needed!
Jun 28, 2013
The qualities I look for we're present, clean bathroom, and hot showers.

This is one of my favorite KOAs so far! The location is right on the Arkansas River. Fishing is great. They have several wonderful family friendly events during the summer months. Kids loved the pool! Very close to some of the best white water rafting in Colorado. We will definitely be returning !

I love Jim and Amy. I needed time away so I went camping by myself. I knew I was going to be safe there because they know me and I will continue to go to Cotopaxi KOA.
