One of my favorite places to camp. The deluxe tent site is perfect and the upgrades to the grounds with the new dog park, are great. Will be back!

Great hosts, superb customer service in an area with limited communications (cell) they provide a way to check in at home. Next time I will have the fly rod with me.

This was the first time we stayed here & it was wonderful, great Delux tent site, people & owners, we would recommend staying here to anyone & we will be back again.

Had a great time during our 1st KOA trip! The dog run was great-would be better if owners cleaned up after their dogs). Tent sites are very close, so request a spacious site/area when booking your stay (don't use the online map). The kids loved the activities (tractor ride, ceramics painting, tie-dying, swimming, playground). Would like to have an account set up and pay once when checking out.

My only complaint is that the tent sites are so incredibly small and the sites are right on top of each other. Not much room for anything beyond your tent itself, no privacy, and a lot if vehicle traffic because of the close proximity of the tent sites to the access road.

I chose this campground because last year we went during the month of september. This time we brought along 2 other families we invites to camp with us. The only thin that I would say would be easier is if there was a sink to wash dishes near the pet area where there is restrooms. But it was awesome and would go again with more friends

the staff accomadated our 3 families so that we were all camping next to eachother. they are very freindly and helpful with local info and attractions. this is the second time stayig there and can not wait for the next time.The only thing i would say is missing is the sale of float tubes. They have the arkansas river next to there site and would make profit from selling float tubes for the campers

Nice koa, tent sites are pretty small. Lots to do for kids, family oriented for sure.

We were packed in like sardines. There was not enough room to park a car and pitch a tent. The people next to us parked right in front of our tent instead of their own.


We apologize for that. Demand exceeds supply, especially on Labor Day Weekend. Each site is set up for 1 normal car, 1 normal tent, picnic table and fire pit. We would have asked the people to move their car had you told us it was not yours. Again, our regrets.

the sites are so close and no privacy between spots. You can hear everything your neighbors are saying and doing, not camping. Staff was very nice and helpful. The facilities were clean and well kept.

This was one of the cleaner KOA campgrounds that we have stayed. The staff was incredibly polite & made our stay all the more enjoyable.

We loved the soothing sound of the Arkansas River just outside our tent. We plan to be back next time we come through next year.

I had a wonderful stay there. The campground was very clean nice. Loved the humming bird feeders. All the staff was very polite and kind. I will def be back again soon.

it was fine. very small camp sites. ours had a great river view which made it better, but we were essentially right on top of the people next to us. we couldn't start a fire because the wood we bought at the store wasn't dry enough (we got a starter too) and there was a super long wait at the showers in the morning.

Always enjoy Cotopaxi. Nice, Clean, and Beautiful area to camp.

The campground is very clean. The pool, tractor ride, arts and crafts and ice cream social are all great for families. The spaces are tight and you feel like you are on top of each other. This is fine and if you are with a group but not so great if you are traveling alone and want privacy.

We had a great time. The tent sites are way too close together. There needs to be water near the tent sites. Restrooms were far away. Store prices were insane. We did enjoy our time because we had friends. I would not stay there multiple nights had it not have been for our friends and the plans we had due to how close the sites were.

We loved it. The surroundings were pretty basic, but the other campers and the hosts made it special. A tractor ride every night, crafts for kids, ice cream social...get to know folks. The facilities were well maintained, and care was shown throughout. Thanks. Wish the COTOPAXI KOA were more prominent from the road.

Easy going, friendly staff. Good place to crash for the night and fine for a small group (5 of us) - showers were fantastic :)

Staff were really friendly. We stayed @ 1 of the tent sites along the river. It was nice, there was a bit of an incline to get down to the river. We have a 8-man tent & space for it was pretty tight. It was also gravel, no grass, so that a little bothersome. I was underprepard for the insects, flying or otherwise & as a result retired to the tent earlier than planned, but overall it was nice.

Parking lot style sites, tent site on edge of cliff which is NOT ideal with 2 young kids, partiers smoking weed, drinking, and puking next to our site 10 ft. away.

Great camp site. Clean restrooms and friendly people.

I thought the price was a bit high for a tent site, but the campground is perfect for young kids, great playground, pool and nice views - it rained a lot and that made the sand a chore to clean off of everything - wish they had different pads, but overall great stay!

This was our first time staying at a KOA. Our campsite was clean and ready for our arrival. Loved having a grill and deck overlooking the river! Everything was immaculate and well taken care of, even the bathrooms! The staff were all pleasant, and easygoing. They even shared a pair of tweezers with me, so I could remove cactus from my finger. Definitely recommend this campground to everyone!

Very clean and everybody was friendly and helpful! Pool was clean and looks like it had been updated. Tent sites were smaller but our neighbors were great!

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

Great KOA with great people and awesome location! I'll definitely be back!

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.
Jun 16, 2014
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
