This KOA is clean friendly and very helpful. The upper sites that over look Central City are spectacular. The best sites ever especially in the fall.

This KOA is definitely meant for large RV's. Friendly, clean, great setting, staff tried to be accomodating (reservation made 3 weeks earlier), but with 3 young grandchildren along needed a tent site with electric (Not Avail.).The only night the kids put their tent on concrete during the whole week trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have electric tent sites. Sorry all our tent sites were full.

Our experience with this KOA was great. They provided us with guidance to the camp site as well as helped us back in to our spot. When we had question, everyone was super helpful in providing the information. Everyone was very pleasant and the shuttle service to Central City was great as we had no way to park our camper and truck in town since we were not ready to go home. A very clean park.

We enjoyed having the three best tent sites in the campground Had great fun in the hot tubs. Facilities were very clean. Looking forward to our next stay.

Great views, clean facilities and friendly people. Just wish there were some hiking/biking trails accessible from the campground.

We had a great time! We would also like to thank the gentlemen that helped us with our t.v. Not sure of his name but he was wearing a cowboy hat. He came up and helped us in the pouring rain. Wow we give that fellow a 10. He was so kind. Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only issue I had was with the campground access. It would've been better to have the access right off the main road. Instead had to take hairpin turns with a 6%+ uphill grade. Almost didn't make it.

Very clean, friendly, enjoyed the spa on a cool night. Thanks for a great stay.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Everyone was so friendly and the campground is clean and orderly. Great job.

This is the 2nd time we've been in a KOA campground. This weekend's experience was a touch above awesome. We made new friends, everyone at the site was friendly, campers and staff and the beauty and short drive off the beaten path was more than worth it. WE WILL DEFINETLY BE BACK, sooner than later and look forward to hiking and spending some time in Central City in the valley below. Thanks

we absolutely loved this place!! the views were simply amazing! Best KOA ever
Aug 04, 2013
A nice clean facility. Road in is twisty and steep. Sites are well maintained. Washrooms/showers were immaculate. We loved the kampground but were disappointed in Central City itself due to the fact it was pretty much all casinos or thrift stores and we are not gamblers!
Aug 04, 2013
Arrived late at night, was given an alternate tent campsite to accommodate setting up more easily after dark. The place was really good at customer service. Liked the storage available in the showers to manage shampoos, soaps, razors and such. Hot tub was a disappointment both how it is situated more for winter weather and the fact it was unavailable during my stay, early August.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry about the hot tubs but someone thought it would be funny to put bubble bath in them. Bubbles were cool looking but not fun to clean up.

Personal shuttle to town appreciated. The tent areas are beautiful, great view. Our favorite KOA of our vacation. Cliff and Pat

Our campsite had a beautiful view, and the entire campground was pristine. The scenery is spectacular, and the campground reflects that beauty. My only suggestions would be to provide a dump station as opposed to availability at only two sites, and to have more locations for dumping trash. We will definitely return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not sure about the dump station thing and only having two sites with sewer. Every site in the campground has one or two sewer hook ups. Sorry for any confusion.

This was a treat! The tent site is surrounded by trees. The campground is high up in peaks west of Denver near an historic, picturesque town. The staff was cheerful and helpful.

Just the nicest people. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The store was well stocked too. The site was well maintained and level with plenty of space to sit outside. Great views too.

Great location & staff.

Love the upper lot and its fantastic views. Great service and friendly folks. A tough drive in for anything 40 foot or longer. The steep grades will stress you rig.

We recently stayed at the Denver West KOA in Central City for 5 nights and it was definitely one of the nicest facilities we have ever stayed at. The staff was very accomodating, views were unbelievable, and campsite was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

I love this place so much. I would never come home if I didn't have to. The staff at this particular KOA are the nicest people and so very helpful. The facilities are extremely well kept and I would highly recommend this KOA to anyone.

it is a very tough climb in a class A.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry but we do accommodate 40 foot rigs everyday many with tows. Without any problems. Largest one this year 77 feet total length.

Very clean and well maintained park with beautiful views. There were two hot tubs but nothing else to do and a long steep drive down to get to anything except casinos.
Jul 29, 2013
Campground is fine, facilities excellent, but access road deserves special warning for gas MH with tow vehicle. Nightmare to drive in and almost as bad back out of town.
Jul 29, 2013
Really well maintained facility, with friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Loved it! We will be back if we can!

One if the most beautiful views we ever had! Worth the crazy roads to get to it. Had a premium site (#3) and well worth it.
Jul 28, 2013
Great stay but they have to get an on ramp from the parkway. I almost did not get my RV up that road through town. I loved this KOA but will not be back until they get that road issue fixed. The road is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars.
Jul 27, 2013
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Shuttle to Central City was great. Great views from upper sites. Well stocked store.
Jul 27, 2013
We didn't like traveling that far in the mountains off of the interstate, but the campground was nice and the people were very nice.
Jul 25, 2013
Spectacular! Not only is the campground beautifully maintained, the view is breath taking. A word of caution-the 9,000' elevation made it difficult for me to breathe.
