Campground Reviews

Nice KOA even though it was all gravel. It was very clean. Nice facilities. We'd definitely stay here again.

Clean and well supplied campground. Hot Tubs are a welcome addition after a long day's drive or hike. Awesome view of the surrounding mountains.

One of the best we've stayed at. Great staff, van into town was a real plus.
Jul 15, 2015
Awesome! Loved it! Plan to return later this year. These owners really know how to do it right. Thank you for your hospitality. The walk in tent sites were perfect. Close to the bathhouse but yet private.

The staff was great. Very scenic. The steep narrow streets to the campground were unexpected. More trash facilities to keep bears away from campground would be appreciated.

What a great spot on top of the mountain overlooking Central City. Wish we could have stayed longer. Pancake breakfast is always a hit with the kids.

People talk bad about the place but it is a great jump away to many areas in the hilands and close proximity to West Denver. Just stating the obvious.

Nice view. A little stressful coming in to the Central City in the rain (BIG downhill grade). Laundry facility was "OK", nice small playground for kids. The pizza delivery was EXCELLENT.

Very nice location. Beautiful views. Nice camp store with lots of choices. Nice staff, too.

The staff was very friendly. When we checked in we were informed that there was a bear running around and told not to leave out trash or food. An employee walked the tent trails spraying bleach. I think it worked cuz the bear didn't bother us. Great amenities. Pizza and pancake breakfast were great. The kids loved the playground. Steep hill up to the site but very nice in the trees.

The facilities were very nice, the access was issy pissy.the lady I worked most close with Sharon and her Husband Rich, were very sweet and very helpfull. there was a young lady Rouchell that was not the best people person, at first not very helful since we got to the camp a day early and didn't want to help to get us in a spot to wait for aour campsite to open the next day. Her husband took over,

Very clean with large sites (compared to most KOA's). The Wi-Fi and Cable worked well which was very welcome during three solid days of rain. Nice hot tub. Love the little off leash dog park. Very convenient to Central City and Denver.

Everything was topnotch
Jul 12, 2015
great place to stay. i loved the welcoming feeling of Rochelle, the guest service desk rep. everything was clean and very well situated, the only thing i recommend is to have more toilet stalls installed. from my experince on my stay there, the first morning, i woke up needing to go and "take care of business" and there was a line of 3 people in line in front of me, so more stalls are needed

Excellent value and great people. When we had issues with transportation they helped us not only with getting a campsite, but with looking at the vehicle! Thank you all so much!

Everyone at this KOA was above and beyond! Chuck was fantastic and helped me a lot! Upon leaving, it felt like I was leaving home.
Jul 07, 2015
Great KOA, but we do not like the new policy of a four night minimum on holidays
Jul 07, 2015
It was nice, however, other KOA's have included soap in the showers.I did like the dog play area. But the dog walk was not as good as it could be. Staff was exceptionally friendly on Friday night with the amount of volume.
Jul 07, 2015
Amazing campground! The view and facilities are amazing! The pizza and chicken wings were great too! Thanks for a great time.

We loved our tent site! Loved the availability of pizza, pancake breakfast, clean showers.

Everything was clean/staff was friendly/ best KOA in Colorado!
Jul 06, 2015
Staff was very friendly. Our reservation got lost and staff packed up our things, when we returned to camp they bought us dinner and apologized profusely for the mix up. It sucked for a minute, but we could tell the staff was not being malicious.

We've stayed at many KOA's this one had the friendliest and most helpful staff. It also had the nicest facilities. Huge Kuddos they are doing it right.
Jul 05, 2015
Excellent facility with friendly staff and a well stocked store. A little difficult to get to, but after driving mountain passes to get here the final hill up from town was a breeze.

At 8900' altitude may be an issue for some, but there was easy access, wonderful views, shuttle to Central City, and friendly staff.

Great facility and friendly staff.

This is a really nice Koa with great views! We stayed here in a 39 foot 5th wheel! Good wifi,concrete pads, good electric, really nice people! The down side is the steep climb through Central City to get up the park! Although the interstate may seem good to come to Central City the up and down through the mountain is very stressful. We took CO119 /Hwy 6 gentle downhill to Golden & Denver.

It was an interesting way to get to the KOA. When we got there, it was well worth it. Nice campground!
