Wish we could have fire or rent propane fire

Nice people. Bad wifi


Unfortunately, that's the best internet service you can get in our remote location. Fortunately, our campground is an excellent place to escape technology!

This was my first experience with KOA (but not my first camp trip). We tent camped on a beautiful, tidy, well kept tent site. Despite the rain, we found the kampground to be lovely. Our hosts were knowledgable and gracious in their hospitality. If you're in the Colorado mountains, this is a great place to stay.

Driveway and parking not motorcycle friendly


Would love to understand what makes it unfriendly so we can perhaps address your concern.

The campground was clean and well kept. The bathroom facilities were very clean and was provided with small little hand towels as well as paper to dry your hands. It had a homey feeling.


This is our home, so glad we could make you feel at home too!

Possible wind breaks around deluxe tent sites.

I loved it! The facilities we're clean. The pancake breakfast and the s'mores night were awesome!. I will will be going back for many years. I have been telling all my family and friends about how great this place is!! And the friendly horses and hummingbirds are added delights😍.


I'm glad you had a great time, and looking forward to your next visit!

From what we saw, it was a nice, clean campground. We checked in quite late and left early the next morning. Did I mention we spent the night in our car since the rain kept us from setting up our tent? Other than the weather, the campground was great!


Oh no! I hope you have an opportunity to come spend a day or two with us so you can enjoy our campground under good weather.

Always the best stay. Favorite KOA!!


We'll do our best to keep it that way!

The people who run this are really good at it, and very friendly. The grounds are nice, but too many Texans are flooding the area.


Thanks for the review. New owners are Texas transplants. Guess the Texans are following us! :)

We have stayed here before. I think it may be under new management. Our tent sight wasn't level ( not even close) It was extremely sloped. We were told after we got there that they don't level these sites. We had to pay extra and move to a flat site.


Thank you for your candid feedback! While some would argue that primitive sites should be kept as-is, we are looking into near-term opportunities to address some of our sloped primitive sites. It appears you relocated to a deluxe tent site, so rates are higher for the additional amenities that come with that type of site. You were NOT charged to move to another open site.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Extremely overpriced for a tent site I the middle of the woods, on a poorly maintained road, very far away from any amenities that would ameliorate the charges.


Thank you for the review. Our deluxe tent sites have many comforts of home and are near facilities, so perhaps that would be a better choice. As you observed, our primitive sites are remote and, well, primitive. We are actively working the road maintenance situation now.

The owners were great! They were very personable and helpful! The primitively tent sites were great!

Stayed 2 of the planned 4 days. Very little communication with staff . Showers closed for 3 hours bathrooms for 2 hours daily all at the same time. Couldn't burn so the brought out a gas grill for people to use. Tent and cabin people weren't notified found out by using showers. Staff Not as friendly and outgoing as we are used to from a koa. This is one of the reasons for our early departure.

My family and I had a wonderful weekend and truly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very polite and professional. Would highly recommend a stay there!


Thank you!

The bathrooms and showers are very clean. The view of the mountains is amazing. The staff is very friendly.


We are pleased you enjoyed our camping experience!

Perfect end of a difficult day cycling from Colorado Springs. Slept under the stars first time in many years. Loved it and slept well. Left 6:30 next morning and had a great ride back home, breakfast at the Hungry Bear in Woodland Park. I'll see you all again some day soon. Cheers!

Enjoyed the facility and camp hosts. Do not like the fact that people can reserve a spot and then not show. System needs to be changed. I looked on KOA's reservation site for anout 2 hours trying to find 2 tent sites. Cripple Creek had two sites, but one was electric the other primitive. Got them. But during our stay, most of the tent sites were unoccupied. Frustrating. All KOAs like this?


Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Bookings are managed centrally through KOA systems, but we often have no-shows. We are sometimes able to shift reservations, so next time please try giving us a call and we'll see if we can accommodate!

The good first. Showers and bathrooms are nice. The owners seem to be good people and have good customer service. Now the bad. The tent only sites are terrible, not a flat spot for your tent and even the picnic tables are not level enough to stop everything from rolling off. What is up with that. Fire grates are a joke, don't think they have even looked at them. For $20 plus a nigh


Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback! We will take a look at opportunities to level tent and table pads before your next visit.

Very enjoyable 4 night stay over the Memorial Day weekend. I would definitely return here. It was a good staging area for our visits to areas around the site.

Outstanding KOA. Facilities were excellent. Friendly owners. Everything was clean and manicured. Lots of extra features that you don't expect to see at a campground, like outdoor electric and hot water community cooking station, a on-off night light, electric outlet and water spigot at my tent campsite. This is my second visit this summer.

The location is nice and quite in the middle of the mountains. The guy running it was friendly and the bathrooms and showers were very clean. I would definitely stay here again!
Sep 07, 2016
Incredibly nice KOA. Tent sites are well-spaced for privacy and have covered picnic table. The grill was much appreciated - we used it every night. The bathroom and individually accessed showers were very clean. The mountain view from our campsite was beautiful!

Camp was very well maintained and clean. Lots of activities over the Labor Day weekend. Very nice tent sites away from all the rv's - and tent site with water/electricity are bigger than they look on the map. We're more of the forest service rugged camping types but his was nice for a change.

Loved the place! It was so much ! If you are bringing dogs there is a dog run off leash fenced with toys. The tent sites are great! "Love the morning view. We loved that it has a sitting area for meals with a light, a faucet during summer, restrooms and showers as well! You also get a fireplace.The place is very well kept! Thank you for making my family's stay so worth it. My doggies loved it to

Nice time, enjoyed 2 days.
Aug 23, 2016
The KOA staff was very friendly and personable towards everyone. The camp grounds them selves looked very well cared for and maintained. The little store had about anything you might need. Will return to this KOA again.

Jerry and his wife are excellent hosts. The hand towels in the bathrooms is a nice touch. They do not overcharge for their sundries like so many other camp grounds do !
Aug 22, 2016
4th year at this campground and we love it.
Aug 18, 2016
I love the location and cleanliness of the facility, I would come back here again!
Aug 17, 2016
The KOA sign at the beginning of the drive needs a better light we almost missed the turn, as we came in late in the evening. Otherwise it was a great stay! I loved staying at the highest KOA, it was rough though as I live at 600 ft on a regular basis, but now I can say I did it!

The campgrounds were gorgeous and very clean. The dog park was a big plus for my puppy. There is nothing negative to say about this KOA.
Aug 13, 2016
Tent pads could be bigger and flatter
Aug 08, 2016
Our first time camping with the kids. Wish there was more for them to do. Other than that, we had a great time. The grounds were clean, staff was wonderful, location was perfect, and we will be traveling with KOA as our camping destination for years to come... thanks again!

My husband and I really liked this campground. When we were assigned a site that wasn't big enough for our tent they allowed us to move to another site with no hassle. There was a no fire rule in effect but they provide a gas grill and an eating area so cooking for us was no problem. Overall the staff was friendly and it is a very clean, well maintained campground.

Very clean! I liked the secluded tent site.
