There was nothing wrong with the park. The owners when out of there way to help me stay one more night at the last minute,it's just a long way to the park and the altitude killed me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry to hear the altitude was a problem. Unfortunately, some people are seriously affected.

Very clean campground. very nice reception office. The Log cabin really adds to the Colorado atmosphere when checking in. Liked the small store area and gift shop.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Unfortunately it rained off and on so we didn't do as many outdoor activities that we would have liked. On the plus side, the office had plenty of movies to keep our grandson busy. It is a very well kept KOA and the office personal are very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had an enjoyable stay in spite of the weather. We never know what mother nature will bring us... sun to hail to rain to sun is a typical day!

I was put in a spot that when set up my entry was so steep we had a very hard time getting in and out of our unit. The utility connections did not allow us much leeway to position ourselves to get near to the waste receptacle. Even though I booked this stay several months in advance and asked for a 50 amp hookup I was put in a 30 amp and told It was basically my tough luck and could not be moved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On Dec 10, 2016 you booked a 30 amp site yourself (online) for Veteran's Rally weekend and were sent an email confirmation clearly highlighting that fact. The mistake was yours alone. Under these circumstances, we gladly accommodate site changes but when you showed up on the single busiest weekend of the year expecting a change, we simply did not have any options for you.

It served our purpose. We're actually more used to camping in National Forest campgrounds, so a KOA felt a bit crowded. Facilities were great. Showers and bath were spotless. Staff was polite and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The campground was built before today's big rigs, so some of the sites are kind of tight. We do have plans to add some new sites very soon, so hope you check back in a year or two. :) Thanks for taking the time to review!

Had a good time. Able to use a little bit bigger fire pit so all of the campers we were with could sit around and enjoy the evening. Thanks again.

We love Cripple Creek and have stayed at this KOA many times in the past. We love the location, the view, and the serenity. However, this time we had no phone service or tv. They advertise wifi, but it was extremely unreliable. We were parked about 50 ft. From the office but could rarely get it to work. Being senior citizens we felt extremely isolated. We won't be here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, our remote location limits our options on internet service providers, and terrestrial satellite is the only viable option. Fortunately, most folks see it as a great opportunity to reconnect with the beautiful outdoors... you know, camping. This is the same service that's been in place for years, so I'm surprised it is only an issue as of your latest stay.

Nice quiet place. Be aware it is at 10,000 plus feet so it WILL have an effect on your breathing

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Breathe deeply, drink LOTS of water.

Very nice sites. Clean park and friendly owners.
Aug 17, 2017
We had a late arrival but all the information we needed was waiting for at the office. Very helpful. The shower facilities were nice, clean. Beautiful view, nice quiet stay.

We stay here once a year. The new owners don't seem to be that friendly maybe because they new. They don't deliver wood or ice like most other KOA's do. It's hard to carry those item up the hill to the higher sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry this was your experience as it is not the norm. We pride ourselves on being friendly and I personally deliver wood and ice every chance I get. I suppose you may have purchased when we had only one person working.

Very clean. Beautiful setting.
Aug 16, 2017
Not really big rig friendly . Pads themselves were fairly level but very narrow for a trailer with big slides . The area where the picnic table was was very unlevel and you really had to be careful when you stepped out of the trailer . Some landscaping to level the entire spot would solve a lot off problems . Very quite except for dogs. We were in a 42 ft toyhauler , needed more room .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the candid feedback! We're considering adding some new big-rig sites in the near future. Site leveling is on the top of my list for off-season maintenance this year, so hope you can come back and enjoy the result. :)

This KOA was very nice. The owners have done a fantastic job! They offer several games to use, have a great laundry room, showers and restrooms were nice and clean, the scenery couldn't have been better!
Aug 14, 2017
Great friendly people who work there, clean restroom.
Aug 14, 2017
Sight was good, was tight getting in and out (but we made it!). Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. A quarter machine in the laundry room would have been helpful since it is open 24 hours (if there was a quarter machine somewhere my apologies). Store had on hand supplies that were helpful to us so we did not have to drive to get them. Fenced in pet area was very nice.

Thank you!

We had a really relaxing weekend at Cripple Creek KOA. The facilities are clean (bathrooms and showers) and the campground itself is nicely situated off the main road enough that you cannot hear traffic and right up against the treeline. The hike up to "the knob" is fun and invigorating. The RV spaces are tight. The dirt roads between spaces need some work. All in all a very good experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! It was hard to keep up with the road washout during the summer monsoon at the beginning of August, but we have improved some of the drainage issues to reduce the water running in the roads. I'll continue to work on it!
Aug 13, 2017
Short weekend. Place has never looked this good. Friendly owners and staff.
Aug 13, 2017
I am a disabled VET that uses a walker and wheel chair. The campground personnel were very helpful. I use a trailer to carry my power chair and the set aside a site for me to park it. I am sure they could have sold the spot. I am my two grandchildren loved our stay and will stay again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad we were able to accommodate! We try to give everyone the personal attention they all deserve. Thank you for camping with us, and we're looking forward to your return!

I rated everything the highest because you have a spectacular park, the location is super and the employees were extremely friendly and helpful. But, the WiFi service was awful. The lady at the office said you had to be patient, but my goodness......drop off, having to re log on constantly, it was impossible. When we checked in, the computer dumped the clerk in the office!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do struggle with wifi on a daily basis. Unfortunately, our remote location severely limits our options so there is not a good solution at this time. I will stay in touch with area providers and will adopt better service as soon as it is available in the area.
Aug 13, 2017
Clean campground, good spacing of sites, roads gravel, rough needs better gravel to prevent washing out into ruts. Older or personal with health problems need to consult with health specialist due to camping in thin air. camp sites over 10,000 feet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, the extra wet summer did wreak havoc with our sloped dirt roads! We invested heavily in tar-chipping around the main building to prevent the washout there, and I have (and continue) to re-surface the roads to reduce washout in the future. Thanks for the feedback!
Aug 12, 2017
Well kept. Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Would stay there again.
Aug 12, 2017
Enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be welcoming and helpful. Shower areas are private but a bit cramped...didn't care much for the textured, scratchy shower walls. Otherwise, the restrooms and showers are clean and well-maintained. Sites are gravel and fairly level. We stayed in a pull-through with a 30-ft travel trailer and could park the crew cab truck behind our rig at an angle. .

Very nice and well maintained campground. Helpful and friendly staff.

One of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. The staff bent over backwards to satisfy the guests. They had everything available that you could need on the road. Access to grills and outdoor kitchen. Wonderful laundry and showers. Hosted pancake breakfast Saturday & Sundays. The vistas were breathtaking. Will return to this campground ourselves and recommend to our friends.

Staff was helpful, grounds were nice, bathrooms clean. But it would be great if there was another set of showers, - many tenters and many Kabiners means there was a wait 2 out of 3 days.

Sites are pretty close together. Made it difficult to get in and out. Owners and workers were all very nice and helpful when we needed something. Very clean and beautiful area. Enjoyed our stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are hoping to add big-rig friendlier sites in the near future. Current layout is how KOA built em in the early 90's, when campers were a bit smaller. :)
