Campground Reviews

Aug 25, 2013
Love this place! Only 25 miles from the house and we are in the mountains. The staff are all courteous and eager to help. They also have a great sense of humor.

The campground was clean, with nice views of the mountain tops outside Central City, CO. Convenient location for day trips into the mountains and to see local attractions. Not much space, however, so this is more of a base camp than a destination.

This is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed at. The staff is always extremely friendly and always ready to help with any problems. The camp spots are clean, level, made of concrete, and have awesome scenery. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone and everyone! Outstanding job.

This is a very good KOA. I really liked it as a campground. The people were very friendly. It is just a bit hard to get to but worth it.

Best KOA we stayed at this cross country journey. Good gift shop too.

I enjoy the campground very much. It is quiet, in a beautiful area of Colorado and is close to Denver. Very clean and friendly. We recommended this campground to some friends about a month ago and we all stayed there this last weekend.

The campground itself is clean and well-run. We truly appreciated the helpful a nd friendly staff. Quiet after 10, also good. The campground is very difficult to get to, which is why I am unlikely to recommend it to others.

Very nice facilities. Disappointed in extra fee for coffee at weekend breakfast. $1.00 on steep side. Would come back to stay.

LOVED IT. We live in Aurora, just down the road, and thought we'd like to see Central City/Blackhawk. This was the perfect place. Close enough to ride bikes into town (wouldn't recommend it...the hill back would be a killer), but they have a shuttle in case you didn't bring a car. The camp host, Ted, was super and everything was perfect. Need a grassy area for dogs, though. But still perfect!

Great location, clean facilities wonderfully nice people. Definitely would stay here again.

Our site had fantastic views. Staff very helpful and friendly.

The only down side is the road in. If you don't like steep grades and sharp turns don't try this place, however the camping was great and the sites were very nice.

When we arrived on the 9th, the party had not vacated our reserved space,but the office personnel handled the situation without causing any problems or animosity.They always make every effort to accommodate us and to see we are parked close to our traveling companions. We appreciate their enforcing the "quite hours" and find the evenings are most enjoyable and peaceful.Very nice hosts and staff.

The views were beautiful, however paying for a preieum state one would think each campsite would come with a grill to be able to cook on all of the other sites that we stayed in had grills at each site. We were advised that they do not sell beer as they do not want a bunch of drunks in there campground I was affendended by there comment. just because i wanted to buy a beer does not mean I am a dr

Very good. Nice, clean, very friendly KOA-personal.We came one night earlier without reservation. Official no place. But we could stay. We stayed in about 15 different campings or kampings (not all KOA). This was the best.
Aug 15, 2013
Beautiful view up on top of a mountain! The trip to the KOA is mighty steep with a couple of hair pin turns that made us a little worried, but once settled in our site, it sure was a beautiful view. Clean, open, level sites.

Very clean & spacious. Good facilities & helpful friendly staff.

Good location, friendly and easy-going staff. Bathrooms are reasonably clean, knowing how many people were visiting that weekend.

Our 4th visit and not our last.

Everybody is nice and friendly....Thanks

Would highly recommend that if coming from Denver take Hwy 6 and go through blackhawk rather than taking Central City Hwy. The grades of the roads are a lot less taking this route.
Aug 12, 2013
Compared to other KOA's, this one is very well done. It has wonderful views of the Rockies, the staff are friendly and accommodating, and the concrete pads are nice.

Arrived late and woke in the morning to a glorious view from our campsite. Friendly staff, clean campsites and unbelievable views. We will stay here again if in the area.
