Tent Reviews

A little bit out of the way from everything but well worth it to camp out at 10K above sea level.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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 !!

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.

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.

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.

Short but very sweet! Very clean throughout, especially restrooms and showers.
Jul 21, 2014
Clean and very well maintained property.The staff go out of there way to help you. I took my 2 boys and a nephew tent camping for the first time here and they loved it. In my rush to get away, I forgot to bring any type of towel. I was pleased and grateful at the addition of a cloth hand-towel/washcloth in the restrooms. Thank you Tom and Pattie

Used the tent site. Was secluded and the scenery was amazing.

We tented there. Clean, Family Friendly, Quiet, and in an excellent location. We plan on going back soon. Best KOA ever. Love the handtowels in the restroom.
Jun 16, 2014
The owners were beyond gracious. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. We will definitely be back!

Great, remote location. Phenomenal staff and service.

There was a lot of dog poop around the camp ground and over all it was not as clean as it has been in past years.


We checked their campsite and area around and found NO dog poop. A check of the entire campground resulted in NO poop being found.

Great koa to stay at! Facilities were extremely clean. Management made us feel at home.
Aug 19, 2013
The camp sites were nice but the ground under tent should have pea gravel or soft dirt - extremely hard
Aug 19, 2013
foul weather beyond KOA's control, but rocky, totally uneven tent sites are. will never reserve a site in that portion of the campground & they should NOT be allowing camping in that portion. NOT worth charging for. rest of campground fine. left day early due to poor site condition.
Aug 06, 2013
This was our first time camping and everybody here made it great! Everybody was very friendly and gave us all of the information we needed.

Great place for tent camping! Wonderful KOA.
Aug 04, 2013
The tent site was very nice. People running camp were excellent. Wish you had the same kind of setup for tents in the tree area. With a protected table area I think the wooded tent sites would have been great. The site I camped at was very open and windy. Next time I'll stay in wood tent area.
