Great place to stay. Staff is extremely nice . Spaces are excellent and level. Gambling in a central City and Blackhawk is only a mile or two away but nice to get back after an evening to the peaceful camp.

Campground was very clean to include restrooms. Very large recreation room. Lots of table and chairs. There was a large TV and a couple of board games. Our campsite did not have a campfire pit. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great views. Would stay again.

Excellent location. Very convenient to casinos. Sites have many large stones, makes walking difficult.

Nice facility, up in the mountains overlooking the town of Central City. A little hard to get to but a very nice drive coming up the back way of 119.

Owners were great! Fantastic customer service, very friendly. They have put a lot of work into the campground and it shows!

Staff was friendly and helpful getting us into a site a day early and we enjoyed being up high in the mountains with a gorgeous view of the Rockies and being close to Central City and Black Hawk. And the pizza Friday night was great😀

With over 40 years of camping, this is the most hospitable and accommodating campground ever!! We were snowed in during an early spring storm and the owner spent countless hours clearing over 40 inches of snow so campers could get in and out. We spend half of our summer camping at this resort. We love it!!

The best! Highly recommend!

Very nice sites and friendly staff. Only glitch was that the 20A outlet at our site did not function (#37), but we connected to the 30A outlet and all was well.

Preseason visit. WiFi not working. Only 3 local channels. Very clean facility. Staff very friendly and helpful. LOVE those hot tubs! Perfect for our spring shakedown trip.

Beautiful scenery from the pull-in sites at the top of the hill. Very clean campground with a helpful and friendly staff.

Absolutely beautiful location with 369 degree mountain views. Activities for both kids and adults: mine tours, central city sight seeing, playground, and hot tubs.

It was off season so not a lot going on. Park was still clean and friendly

The view is great from the top area. It's very rocky which is good to avoid dust but kind of a pain to sit around the campfire. Gambling within minutes though as a perk. Very clean facilities.

Don't trust them


This person stayed for 41 nights would not follow the rules. Had complaints from other campers we had to ask them to leave. Sorry

We stayed for a few days and was great. The day we got there was in the middle of snow storm. Got all hooked up and relaxed in the peace and quiet. Very nice dog park for our little guys. Just wish the office and store would at least be open for 1/2 day during the cold weather instead of closing up.

Nice quiet place with hills to explore. Place was clean, staff friendly, close to town but not too close. Nice sites.

We went there because the State Campground we had planned on staying at was full. We were very happy with this campground - very clean, good wi-fi, picturesque. We will be coming back again by choice :)

Breathtaking views and great people, it just doesn't get any better than that

Absolutely awesome place!! We booked a cabin for a one night stay, and instantly reserved it for another night once we arrived. Hidden gem in the Rockies.

One of the few which are spacious and nice and quite.
Oct 17, 2015
Would have been nice to wash my clothes, didn't have enough quarters and no quarter machine and nobody in the office from 9-11am couldn't wait anymore so my underwear are still dirty!
Oct 16, 2015
Quick get-a-way up into the mountains. Very nice clean camp ground
Oct 15, 2015
We were rock climbing on Hwy 6. Very convenient location. Nice bathrooms & laundry. Nice dog park. Nice pads. Overall one of the nicest koa. Just wish you could take with someone instead of the recording to just come in.

Beautiful location, way up there in altitude! Neat little mining town. Wish we had been here earlier in the year when the shuttle to the town and casino was running. Great people behind the desk.

The KOA itself is a good stop-over set up. But the 8 miles off I-70 turned into a 45 steep climb to Central City, followed by an even worse climb up to the KOA. They should have told us to unhook before attempting it. We are a gas engine towing RV and we almost stalled out. Centraol City and nearby Black Hawk are very picturesque towns but they are both casino towns - lots of little casinos.

Very good staff. Fun place to stay

It was awesome!
Oct 11, 2015
Best campground ever! Love the showers, laundry area. Surprised I didn't see a Recycle can, that should be a no brainer. Extremely death defying driving your RV up the hill to get there, definitely needs a entrance in front of campground instead of going around and around, downhill again to Central City and then uphill to get to the same place to enter the campground. Duh! But it was a great view!
Oct 09, 2015
Absolutely a great campground although a little difficult to get to. Be sure to try the morning pancakes!
Oct 09, 2015
Beautiful area to camp, great views. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Showers were clean and lots of hot water. we only stayed one night, would love to come back and stay longer
Oct 08, 2015
Nice location, though road is steep with tight turns to get to it.
Oct 08, 2015
Love this place for a quick stay out of denver very nice park.
Oct 07, 2015
All the way around - it was a GREAT stay and we would recommend it to anyone who asks.
