I gave this KOA 2 stars because of the scenery. If it wasn't for that I would give 1 star. The hosts at this KOA were rude and terrible communicating to their customers. Not only did they lie to us about lodgings but the guy also spoke to us with no respect or courtesy fitting for a KOA host. We've used a lot of KOA's on our trip and other hosts have been great. Not the case at this place.


What she does not tell you is she was told no pets in the cabins when the reservation was made. Then when she showed up tried to sneak a dog into the cabins.

Chuck was awesome. Even though there was 34 inches of snow he showed every hospitality imaginable. It was really clean and everyone there was so helpful. They made sure the roads were plowed so we could drive our mini van around and not get stuck in all the snow.. Which happens a lot in a mini van.. It was absolutely wonderful and we highly recommend staying at this campground!

We love coming up in the winter when the weather permits. Michael is always available if we need anything. Best KOA in America!!!

My family and I stayed at your KOA for five nights back in August. The night before we were scheduled to leave the wheel bearing went out on our truck. The KOA worker name Mike made two separate trips to Golden to get parts for my dad's truck, using his own vehicle. He did the work on the truck too. He saved us so much time and money. And we were able to make it back home to Wisconsin in time.

Nice to have a campground in the Denver/Golden area. Pretty drive to the park thru Central City. Nice to have the campsites on two levels, makes the campground seem more intimate. Friendly welcome while checking in, nice facilities, and quiet campground. A very restful stay.

Nice campground, level concrete sites. Beautiful views, close to Central City with free shuttle to Blackhawk

Everything from the large level sites to the two hot tubs made our stay here wonderful. The views were breathtaking with the Aspens in their brilliant fall color. The staff was very friendly and helpful...we needed help getting there because of the road closure

Well equipped campground on top of a hill. Even two hot tubs for free use! At first glance it looks like a parking lot, but since it was almost empty when we were there, that was okay.

Interior roads has well as exit need work.

Serpentine, steep, long roads to the camp. Very long walk to showers/laundry. Very clean facilities. Excellent concrete site pads, but poorly laid out utility hook ups. No shade at sites. The roads to camp made the visit not worth while.

We love this campground. We camped in the the upper level - deluxe sites. Loved the view, can't get any better than this.

Nice, well-maintained grounds. A little bare-bones for a KOA, but a couple of really nice, enclosed, WORKING hot tubs. One of our favorites.r

There is no way that KOA should only be reachable by going thru that tiny town. You drive right by it on the highway but then it is almost impossible to get a big rig into it. In fact, we took paint off of our RV manuvering the sharp corner in town. Very disappointing. Would NEVER stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone! The office was supposed to be open until 8 but closed at 7.

It would have been better by not having to go through all the tight turns through town. Would of liked a more direct way in. Other than that, everyone was VERY friendly, and accommodating.

We were actually there from July 2, 2014 to 10/1/2014. The host and staff were fantastic. We have already reserved for the summer season 2015.

Difficult steep road with a couple sharp switchbacks makes it hard for big rigs. They were out of propane so I had to go ten miles to get some. On the plus side, the views are spectacular and the sites are great. Facilities are also very good.
