Great. Will definitely go there again.
Sep 20, 2017
The owners are the kind of people you would like for next door neighbors.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is our home, so we try to treat our campers as guests in our home! Glad to hear that some folks do feel that way.

Very nice campground. Beautiful setting and views. Absolute cleanest showers and bathrooms of any KOA we have ever stayed at.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

:) Great to hear!

Great owners and facilities. Already recommended on RV Forum. I never give the highest rating to any business because there is always room for improvement. Me included!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! We agree that there are always opportunities, and have a good list of ongoing improvements to make. Hope you can come back to enjoy them! :)

Very nice KOA! Greeted by friendly staff even with late check-in. Clean, well maintained facility. The weekend pancake breakfast was legit. Enjoyed hiking right off the campground and play areas for the toddler. Close by Cripple Creek attractions but not too far from C-Springs. Only critique was a slightly sloped site and fire pit too close to neighbor. Book/arrive early for best options. Thx KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for taking the time to submit a thorough review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. This is our first season as owners of this campground, and site leveling is one of our top priorities for the off-season. Our sites can feel crowded when we are full, so we are considering adding some big-rig friendly sites in the near future. Hope you can check back!

Very Clean, with a nice location close to Cripple Creek Colorado.

Great area, beautiful. Friendly people, clean campground.

We really enjoyed staying with you. The friendliness of the gentleman that checked us in and especially the nice man that escorted us on the cart, was especially appreciated. He not only was super kind and happy, he went above and beyond getting us settled even offering to help us with set up! We couldn't believe it... Huge kudos to him. Loved waving from the campfire later to him!!!

Thank you! We are happy to be here and glad to hear you were too. Please come see us again!

Upon arrival, we didn't realize check-in was not until 3pm so we had to pay an additional $10 to check in early even though our space was available! With 2 sick dogs and a cat we couldn't wait for 3pm. Furthermore, the internet was so bad we nearly left the same day!! Instead, we left before the store opened Saturday morning rather than waiting until Sunday! What a waste! NEVER again!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you don't approve of our policies, however our check-in/out times are clearly advertised on our website and in your email reservation confirmation. You checked in at 11:16 AM, which is even before our normal check-OUT time, on ValueKard appreciation weekend when we had a near full campground. You are always free to return at check-in time for no charge but you chose to pay the fee.
Sep 18, 2017
Very clean. Great camp staff. Very organized.

New owner Derrick, picked up right where Tom left off! Excellent service and noticed some grounds improvement. Exceptional service and great personality. I will continue to stay here and recommend it to all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks, Jerry! Terri and I are working hard to maintain Tom's legacy, and also add our own personal touches.
Sep 18, 2017
Charge if you arrive early? Gives new neaning to 'full' hookups!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you don't approve of our policies, however our check-in/out times are clearly advertised on our website and in your email reservation confirmation. You checked in at 12:39 PM, barely past check-OUT time, on ValueKard appreciation weekend when we had a near full campground. You are always free to return at check-in time for no charge. Early check-in fees are not unique to our campground.

Super clean , very helpful owner and staff. The whole family helps . Excellent for base station.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! We are a family business, but this is also our family home, so we all pitch in to ensure our guests feel welcome.

Some confusion about checking in early after high noon..came back after five. Showers clean..drunks next to us kept us up til midnight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a less than wonderful experience. We have a policy of quiet hours between 10pm and 8am. Would gladly have asked the neighbors to quiet down had you brought your concern to our attention. Regarding check-in: it is disruptive to daily campground maintenance routine when campers check in early, thus the explicit check in/out hours and associated fee if you do show up early.

This campground needs a fully contained meeting or club house. The evenings are way too cool to sit in their "pavilion".

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not advertise nor pretend to have any type of meeting accommodations. Very disappointing that you would rate us poorly in that regard.

It is a great campground. Its in a beautiful setting. The campground is very well kept. Great area for pets that is also well kept!
Sep 08, 2017
This was such a beautiful campground. The facilities were very clean and the owners and employees were very nice. The views were beautiful. I would definitely stay there again.
Sep 08, 2017
The campground was fantastic. Nice level parking areas. Amazing views of sunset. Great place for kids.

Its at 10,000 feet above sea level and I ran out of steam after two nights. The campground was clean and well run. Next time I'll bring some oxygen. Lots of room to play games on the lawn. Sites were level. Have fire rings, at night it gets cold, so a fire is nice to have.
Sep 06, 2017
Enjoyed the site and the campgrounds. The owners were wonderful. Would definitely return. Would have gave a five but with the digital age I wish the wi-fi was better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We wish the wifi was better too! :) Unfortunately, our internet service provider options are extremely limited, so what we have is the best we can get for now. I am continually searching for better options.
Sep 06, 2017
The campground is currently under new ownership and all of the previous complaints by past guests are being dealt with. Our stay was very enjoyable and the owner / operators were very friendly and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We do pay attention to our camper feedback and are absolutely investing in resolution wherever possible.

Been to the Cripple Creek KOA several times now. Great location at high elevation. Weather stays cool up there. Very clean campground - bathrooms, showers, etc. We'll definitely be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Excellent! You are welcome any time.
Sep 05, 2017
Everything was great but we were disappointed that no one enforced dogs being on a leash.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our apologies. We did our best on one of the busiest weekends of the year.
Sep 05, 2017
Clean and nice overpriced compared to State Parks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are competitively priced among KOAs statewide and nationwide, and provide more amenities than state parks. We are also not government subsidized as they are. We think Mueller park up the road is beautiful camping though. Feel free to stop by to dump your tanks after you check out as they have no sewer hookups.

We have stayed at this KOA several times in the past. Very clean and well kept. The owners are friendly and helpful. The big issue for us this time was the lack of any cell phone service and very limited internet. Our ATT WiFi Hot-spot device wouldn't work at all and the KOA Internet wasn't dependable. We are so dependent on good communications that we will be hesitant to stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry, but we cannot take responsibility for AT&T not having cell service in our remote location. Our internet service is the best available up here and has not changed for years, so not sure why that took you by surprise this visit. I am glad you enjoyed our other amenities. We work hard to make your outdoor camping experience exceptional!
Sep 02, 2017
Love this KOA. Quiet,clean, beautiful! Very well run and friendly
Sep 02, 2017
Great owners! Make u feel at home. Close to a lot of Rocky mountain fun.
Sep 02, 2017
The friendliest hosts! The grounds were very well kept and location was perfect.
Sep 02, 2017
If you want to camp on the side of a steep grade, in a too-narrow site, have your picnic table at an angle where your can of soda will slide off the table, and where you will fall out your front door if you don't hang-on... then THIS is the campground for you. If Cripple Creek wants to claim fame as being the "worlds highest campground" they could at least provide more accommodating sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a FEW sites that have significantly sloped yards, however you were in site 147 which is not one of them. As a new owner this year, leveling out the sloped sites is one of the top items on my to-do list. Unfortunate that you neglected to look up from your site long enough to take in the breathtaking beauty or friendly folks around you.

Sites too narrow and not long enough for our 40' Class A plus toad. Because of slope away from gravel pad, unsafe at motorcoach steps. No cable. Terrible WiFi (good signal strength, but no bandwidth). No AT&T cell coverage. One channel OTA TV. Left after 2 nights of a planned 4 night stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some of our sites are too sloped and I am working on addressing that. Also have plans to add some new sites that are better suited for big rigs. Per your other complaints... well, we are a remote campground in the beautiful, pristine mountains of central Colorado. We offer camping and outdoor activities and don't have an interest in ruining our outdoor experience with city hotel amenities.

My wife died while staying here. They told me I could stay as long as I needed to take care of things even though they had a fully booked Veterans group coming in that weekend. They would move their personal trailer if needed so I could stay. This was also the week of the "eclipse" so it would have been almost impossible to find another site close by. They fed me and kept asking me if I was OK.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Wish we could have done more to help.

Was 7 miles from town, no cell service, and limited internet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Can't argue with that... except that we're 5 miles from town, and Verizon cell service is 4G with strong signal. It's beautiful up here, isn't it?
Aug 31, 2017
Campground was very busy while we were there so there were few empty FHU spaces. Our space sloped right out the camper door making entry and exit a tall step. Parking was tight for us. Other than this I cannot find anything to complain about here. Everything worked as advertised, even the Wi-Wi worked fairly well for such a busy place. Sketchy AT&T signal, limited TV.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review! Working on addressing the sloping sites and adding some new big-rig friendly sites. Not much we can do about internet service and AT&T cell service up here, but continue to look for opportunities to improve.
Aug 30, 2017
The campground was very clean and well organized. All RV sites were pull through - - a nice feature. The price per night was right, although I was a little put out when told I would need to pay an extra $10 fee for "Early Check-In"; we checked in at 12:55 PM and hadn't been told about this fee. The camp needs a 2nd set of bathrooms; i.e. none available from 11:00 AM to @ 2:00 PM for cleaning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to review! Our 3pm check-in time is stated on every page of our website, repeated inline on the General Info tab where there is also statement of a fee for early check-in, and is also stated in the email reservation confirmation you received. Early check-in disrupts the morning cleanup routine, thus the charge. Bathrooms close no earlier than noon, usually for 1 hr
Aug 29, 2017
We really like your campground and will definitely be staying again soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking forward to it!
