Best bathrooms in a camp ever! Tent spots between Aspen trees and easy to navigate RV pads.

Great campground. clean and friendly. The pizza and pancakes were perfect for our quick 1 night stay and made our experience simple and easy.

Great place.

Well kept facility, really enjoyed the location and services provided (pancake breakfast was great).

Absolutely gorgeous site. Views were spectacular. Clean, well kept, friendly and efficient checkin. When we asked about a shuttle to take us into Central city,, the boys were very eager. The campground is pet friendly. If we had more time we would have booked for another day or two. We will be back!!

Wish there were some trees around the tent village.

This is the best KOA we've stayed in. The concrete pads mean that eveytime it rains you won't have a lot of dirt splatter your camper. The views of Central City, old gold mines and the surrounding mountains are incredible. We plan to stay even longer in 2016

The people who run this KOA were very polite and friendly. The amenities were excellent for what I needed/expected. The location was a little confusing to get to, but not impossible. Over all, it was a very enjoyable stay.

Charming location and very helpful staff. But we would suggest the management to pay more attention to garbage collection. My husband and I were surprised by a black bear passing the dumpster at 10:30 PM. No one was hurt, but the thought of my son passing there alone just 30 min earlier was a bit scary.

The staff was super friendly. And the location was amazing. Will defiantly recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Great! We have already made reservations to go back in September.

Nice campground, friendly staff. In the mountains but still close to Denver. Only thing for kids to do was a small playground, no pool.

great location, views

Great camp, but a bear of a climb up the steep roads to get to it!
Aug 08, 2015
Although short overnight stay, we loved our spot with great views. Friendly staff, very supportive. Only remark is the detour through Central City needed to get to the campsite. A direct ramp of from the Parkway would be beneficial!

I wish there was some way to warn campers about the steep grades getting into the campgrounds.

Not a bad campground just really freaking hard to get to. Gps sends you up some dirt crap road. The pavement isn't much better. Staff was good and the campground was clean. But not easy when your not from the area.

Loved the campsite, nice large concrete pad, with a swing. Amazing view of the mountains. Make sure to get a site up top. Nice store. We camp with a camping trailer, but if your a tent camper, I was amazed at the cool tent sites, tucked in the woods and rock bluffs. Would stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay. Very clean, quite, staff was friendly. Breakfast was good and a decent price. We thank you for a great stay. (Stayed 4 nights)

It's a pretty location, on top of the mountain overlooking the charming town of Central City. Bathrooms are always clean. Love the pancake breakfasts and fresh pizza! I locked my keys in my camper van and they were able to get my van unlocked, saving me a a locksmith's fee!! Thanks!

The view was astonishing!!! But the climb up and down to the site...a little harrowing. Nice campground, friendly staff.
Aug 07, 2015
Very nice campground, I'd stay here again.

It was nice.

It is very noisy by the pool, but expected the movie blaring full blast with no one watching it didn't help. Great campground to launch our cross country trip each year
Aug 05, 2015
It's was amazing!!
Aug 05, 2015
Had a nice cement pad. Easy in. Out was tough because neighbor parked too close. This place is a little tough to get to. Central City should allow direct access off highway. Not Koa fault but a little annoying. Staff was nice.

Positives: Great location for seeing mountains and close to Denver. Negatives: Central city is not for kids. No amenities for children. Aroma of skunk marijuana was quite discouraging.
Aug 04, 2015
beautiful view
Aug 04, 2015
There is a CRAZY road to get to the campground, but it is such a nice place! I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Aug 04, 2015
We were fortunate to have the Central City overlook out of our motorhome. Nothing compares to this beautiful view of that valley!
Aug 04, 2015
The campsite was nice. It had clean big bathrooms. The camp site was a little small but fine. The store was open from 8am to 9pm so that was nice but they don't have alcohol so bring some of you want it. There were a lot of other thing like a playground, hot tub, and a place that cooks pizzas at night and pancakes in the morning. The site we stayed in was very secluded as well.
Aug 04, 2015
The best koa we have ever stayed in. Super clean. Nice staff. Amazing view. We will be back and tell others about it
Aug 04, 2015
Clean and well organized! Free shuttle into Central City.
Aug 04, 2015
What a beautiful view we had in site 1. It was so peaceful there. Get place to stay.
Aug 04, 2015
Very clean and very helpful staff. Views are beautiful.

First time there, liked the place overall. The tent sites are up a hill which means if you have a car you have to pack your gear up a hill. The management was nice and the addition of a Hunt Bros. Pizza on site was great.
Aug 04, 2015
The location is nice and close to Denver, services provided are good. A little bit too organized for me, I like the state parks better. What I didn't like were the motorbikes, ATV's and cars that made a lot of noise in the evening hours.
