Tent Reviews

Jul 25, 2015
The best place ever. Clean and very nice owners.
Jul 25, 2015
The lady attendant was very short and not friendly. The male attendant was very nice and extremely helpful. Overall the stay was wonderful. We will definitely come again if in the area

Amazing scenery, beautiful sunrises and sunsets! Covered picnic tables in the deluxe tent sites and clean bathrooms and showers. My two boys played on the train and playground and loved it.

Amazing campground with great amenities.

You guys were more than curious and gracious! A very well run campground!

A few trees would be nice and a swimming pool, but if you had a pool it would definitely have to be heated being at 10,000 feet. We did enjoy our stay and would gladly stay again.

Very clean and comfortable. Owners were amazing! Treated us like we knew then forever. Very accommodating when the unexpected rains hit. Definitely will stay here again!

First time KOA'ers. I loved our great tent site nestled among pines and aspens! Our kids loved the playgrounds on site. Definitely be back!

Lovely setting with campsites (w/o hookups) nestled in the woods. The only two downsides were that none of the sites in the woods are level (especially for larger tents) and it's a bit of a walk to the bathroom. (We were in T2). However, these are some of the CLEANEST KOA bathrooms we've experienced and no lines. Campground is very well maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

The facilities are great but the tent sites are to close together and all you hear is road noise all night.

Daughters Wanted To Go Camping, This Place Is Great, Our Tent Site Was In The Tree's, A-Plus In Our Books. Easy To Get To & From In Our Van. So Much To Do, But My How The Time Fly's When Your Having Fun !!!!!.

Somewhat sporadic wifi. A little disappointing. Everything else was excellent.
Jul 07, 2015
My only suggestion would be to have a few ports potties scattered about - inconvenient to go all the way to rest room and with them closed 12-2 daily - kind of a pain but otherwise awesome!
Jul 06, 2015
Great stay, owners may need a little more staff for the busy holiday weekends - some things weren't open on time in the mornings. Very pleased, though, will definitely stay again!
Jul 06, 2015
Great place to Camp! The owners where great! Can't wait to come back again!

First family vacation for 4th of July weekend. Our stay was awesome especially in Cripplecreek. We love to stay again and recommend to other friends.

We stayed at one of the basic tent sites. It was in a beautiful wooded area and pretty removed from the RV area. The campground itself was well taken care of and very clean. The store was convenient to pick up last minute items like batteries, paper plates and bread. I loved having the camp kitchen with running water to do dishes. The owners were very friendly! It was great!

This was the best run KOA I have ever stayed at and my girlfriend and I had an amazing time! Great breakfast, clean bathrooms and showers and a very friendly staff.
Jul 01, 2015
We pulled in and were already loving it. The owers really are very nice and helpful, if you needed anything they were right there. If you want to camp and rough it ask for the tentsites with no hook ups. We loved our hook up site though, a sand pad for your tent and a path to your own little picnic area (with a light ). We loved the view so we stayed at our site the whole time.

A little bit out of the way from everything but well worth it to camp out at 10K above sea level.
Jun 28, 2015
This is one of my favorite KOAs! If you enjoy the ambiance and ever-changing weather of the Rockies at 10000 feet, this KOA is a great place to stay, and Tom and Pattie are wonderful, caring hosts! I also enjoyed the sheltered tent sites. I'll be back!
Jun 24, 2015
New owners have done alot to really make the place shine. Perfect for those hot summer days to escape the heat at 10,000 feet.

Nice staff. Clean sites. Store was not overpriced.
Jun 22, 2015
This was one of the best KOAs we've stayed in. It felt like home with so many little extras...a kitchen cabin with towels and dish soap provided, hand towels and various hand soaps in the bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff, and very reasonable prices for wood and store items. We will definitely be staying here again. In fact, we already made our next reservation!

For an actual campground I got what I wanted. Most of them are no different than camping in your backyard. This was more secluded and better.

This place is great. The staff is great and the view is amazing and not a hard drive from Denver at all.
May 28, 2015
Amazing views. Amazing staff assistance when severe weather rolled through and we needed to seek shelter outside our tent. Impeccable facilities and campground. Great hiking near by. Can't wait to go back.


Thanks for the great review Look forward to having you stay with us again Hopefully the weather will be nicer.

The campground and facilities were clean and well-maintained and the owner/staff were friendly and courteous. Having paved parking spaces at the tent campsites would have been nice. The kickstand on my motorcycle buried itself in the soft sand/mud and my bike fell over; I had to get a fellow camper to help me stand it back up! nevertheless, I would stay here again.

The new owners are very friendly. I visit this KOA once a year in the fall. They have nice clean facilities.
Sep 02, 2014
The tent sites in the trees were great. The kids loved feeding the horses and the facilities were well kept. We wanted to switch sites and the hosts were very accommodating. Thanks for a great weekend!

From day one to end, this was one of the best experiences we've ever had while camping. The staff was more than courteous, and the amenities were great. The bathrooms and showers were always clean and the pancake breakfast was an amazing way to start the day. When the wind was too hectic on our campfire, they were more than happy to move us to a more secluded spot. We'll definitely be going back!!
Sep 01, 2014
Stay was good. Wish campsite would have been quieter. Next time I stay, I'll ask for a tent site away from families with young children.My fault, not KOA's.
Aug 19, 2014
First time at a KOA. Camping with a toddler can be difficult. Was much easier at the KOA.

Road could be better for motorcycles


Storm w/ heavy rain and hail hit Friday. We regraded the road the best we could as quickly as we could. We even walked the road removing any larger stones that could be a hazard to the motorcycles.

We were up during the Cripple Creek Veterans rally weekend and We had some friends come up in their car so that we wouldnt have to ride the motorcycle back and forth just in case it rained. We my Friend stopped by your check in facility to ask where he would be able to find us and asked if his wife could use the bathroom. Well In short they were told no restrooms were for paying guests only


Due to the KOA being full, we had to limit access to the bathroom to the registered guests, which totaled 175 guests, not including RV's. Since we haul water in for our guests, non paying visitors were not allowed to use the facilities during this weekend. You were told this when you registered.

This is an awesome KOA !!! Beautiful views, nice sites, clean bathrooms, friendly owners!! I will definitely be back soon !!
Aug 11, 2014
Excellent tent sites. Responded to issue quickly and efficiently. One negative - no hot water in bathroom.


Hot water was working fine you just have to let it run to clear the cold water

Very clean, easy to access, and centrally located to many of the attractions in the area. The play areas were great for the kids and the campsites were easy to get set up. We really enjoyed our time there.

Staff very helpful. Our camping spot (#7) was not leveled (in Aug 2014) but we were offered to change. We liked the showers and restroom facilities. Well maintained. Would stay again. All other tent sites were leveled.
Jul 29, 2014
Arrived earlier than expected, about one hour before the "official" check-in time. They let me set up my rig anyway. I did not have much interaction with the owners but they seemed very nice and wanting to make my stay a good experience. I had planned on staying in the Springs but instead chose to drive a little further and experience this KOA. I'm glad I did.
Jul 29, 2014
The Campground was clean and well maintained the hours posted for Business hours are not followed so purchasing items if you need them like Ice etc, make sure you can get into town. Elevation is a factor also for staying here make sure you have plenty of Water. Overall though I would stay again just would have been more prepared.


Our Store hours are 8am to 8pm and on Sat and Sun 10am to 8pm as we are doing the pancake breakfast. If we are out of the store its for a few minutes and a sign on the door. Back in 5 mins or Out Back or Out Front.
