Most of the KOA is nice except campsite 50, which is where we stayed. Horrible view! It's in the very end of the campgrounds and surrounded by junk, I'm assuming it's their storage area. In my opinion there should not be a campsite there. If you have little kids, do not let them rest up against the railing on the deck, it is very unstable and it will collapse with any weight on it!

Every year it's a fantastic stay at the Cotopaxi KOA. Keeps us coming back!!! The owners and staff treat you like family and there are so many organized events and activities in addition to the fishing on the Arkansas. Couldn't ask for a better place for kids with the pool, mini golf, basketball court, and so much more!

Very clean facilities, nice pool, nice folks. The river is RIGHT next to the tent sites, a relaxing sound to relax by.

We had a nice time. The people who worked there were super nice. The campsites for tents were way to small.

Rustic area, tent site was a few feet away from the river,secluded dirt site, close to bathroom facility may not be suitable for small children

I've been coming to this KOA since a child.. it's still exactly as I remembered it. It was like taking a walk down memory lane. The staff are all so friendly and make your camping experience so much more memorable. Cant wait till we get to come back!

Jim and Amy and Thunder Burnham have always made our stays there incredible. They are warm and considerate people and the people they have working for them are knowledgeable. We will always stay there even though there are other places within a 10 mile radius of their place because they make you feel at home.

The tent sites are extremely small, and the restrooms were not cleaned consistently.

This campground is quite cramped as it sits on the Arkansas River. The staff is friendly and wifi is limited.

We had a great stay at Cotopaxi koa! The tent site by the river was great with the river sounds below us, however wasn't close to the restrooms.Staff was great, very friendly and helpful! Could use a little more maintenance but overall pretty good stay.

The only thing I didn't like was they had a tree chipper right next to our tent during nap time for about an hour and a half. Didn't get a good nap:(

The tent sites are very close together, but we loved that they were on the river. The kids also loved the playground. This would be a better experience if the office staff were friendly. When I asked for directions to a trailhead, it seemed like it was really an inconvenience even though I was the only one in the store and there were two people behind the desk.

Friendly staff. Great location for fishing. Good amenities for families. Campsites are a little small but very clean. Nice free bath and showers.

2nd Labor Day weekend stay for my family of 4. The location is great and the staff is even better. I recommend this KOA to any and all people.

Nice campground with good amenities. Campsite was comfortable. My only concern was the animal webs in the trees which appeared to be some sort of insect. Or tree disease. It would have been nice to have been notified as to what it actually was as my grandson was a little concerned. Also there was no hot water at the dish washing station. Loved the playground and pool which were nicely maintained.

We enjoyed our stay very much - tent sites were nice right by the river and the Motel rooms were nice and clean - motel is old but kept up nice. I would stay here again.

Great scenery; quiet and beautiful tent sites directly at the Arkansas river; BUT: tent sites somewhat small; dirty sink full of cockroaches to do dishes;

Great place with friendly people

We stayed at deluxe tent site 50. Overall a good trip. Having the water and power is GREAT. The wood deck was very old and warped though. You had to walk carefully to avoid tripping, etc. Our toddler tripped and fell a few times on the uneven boards. The pool and camp activities were great. The shower water pressure was terrible (barely a trickle). All the employees were very friendly.

Tucked away next to the Arkansas river, this Koa is one of our favorites. Nice assortment of accommodations. Nice pool and bathrooms. Love the hay ride. Only complaint is that you have to rent a cabin for 2 nights on some weekends which doesn't always work out for our plans.

We had a great time. We camped right beside the Arkansas river. The sound of the white water rapids put us asleep every night.

This was our first visit to a KOA and I was very impressed. The staff was wonderful and they made us feel welcome.

I loved this location and the hosts were wonderful. The main and ONLY problem I had was the Wi-Fi, I couldn't get it to work for me at all.

workers there are extremely friendly and helpful and they have things to do for the whole family to enjoy.

I loved our stay at the Cotopaxi KOA campground. The general store offered lots of activities that kept us happy just hanging out at the campsite. Clean restrooms not too far a walk away and loved hearing the river in the background!

Always a good time at Cotopaxi!!!

Love this campground...stayed here 3 times now. Love jumping off the "big rock"

It was supposed to be a DELUXE site. Railroad ties chopped up the space making us too far from water hookup, table, pit (~70+ft). Hard carrying cooler back and forth. Not a pull through. We were outside the KOA by the maint. shed. Might have been different experience if a different camp slot. People were very nice.

Family oriented, nice people, & enjoyed our short stay. Only critique would be that if we had a neighbor in our tent site 51/52 we would have been squeezed in. 52 was empty, so it was spacious enough for us & worked out well!
Jul 20, 2015
The fire pit we had was a little small and difficult to get a decent fire started in order to cook our meals. I saw on the rules that dogs were not to be left unattended- but the tent next to us left their dogs unattended all the time and they would bark and whimper constantly which was quite annoying. Place is beautiful and it was peaceful to camp next to the river.

Clean camp sites with very friendly staff and hosts. We will come back.
Jul 18, 2015
The host were very nice and the place was very clean. This will go in my places to go folder, breath taking

Loved being next to the Arkansas River, and the campground was not very busy. Next time rafting and/or fishing.....

Really enjoyed our stay. Campsite 50 was very big. It was nice having the store at the campground for ice and firewood. The kids loved the hayride and the pool.

Everyone who works there was so kind and helpful and it was a blast!

Amazing! We booked this trip immediately after the last one. I wouldn't go camping anywhere else.

Beautiful location, friendly staff. Campground roads not Class A friendly. Width of roads on two way roads barely wide enough for one car much less Class A RV. Staff needs to "groom" sites after they are vacated - found trash in site, patio not swept off. Staff should not use campsites for dump of limbs.
