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.

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

One of the few which are spacious and nice and quite.

Quick get-a-way up into the mountains. Very nice clean camp ground

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!

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!

Absolutely a great campground although a little difficult to get to. Be sure to try the morning pancakes!

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

Nice location, though road is steep with tight turns to get to it.

Love this place for a quick stay out of denver very nice park.

All the way around - it was a GREAT stay and we would recommend it to anyone who asks.

Nice people, beautiful views

very friendly staff and clean.
Oct 05, 2015
this is a very nice campground. I found the people working there friendly and helpful. The only thing I would change is the pet walking area. It's filled with rocks and a little tricky when walking your pet there.
Oct 05, 2015
One of the things that really need to change is the 2-3 inch rock that you have around some of the fire pits. It's really uncomfortable to walk on and a little dangerous to have around a camp fire pit. Very close to home and real clean campground.
Oct 05, 2015
It's a great place to stay, very friendly, clean, beautiful views and close to a lot of fun things to do.

Great. Thanks for the wonderful time. Very beautiful and quiet. The aspen trees were gorgeous from our camper window. The sunsets were spectacular. 😎
Oct 02, 2015
Great campground. Just wish you could get a driveway off of Central City Parkway.
Oct 02, 2015
Loved the view, facilities are number 1. Would recommend this park to anyone. The only issue is difficulty of getting to it with a big rig

I was not able to stay at this KOA.

The facilities are excellent, and the staff is pleasant and helpful.

Great combination of mountain scenery and location close to Denver, old mining sites, Central City/Black Hawk, and Idaho Springs. We used the KOA as our base as we ventured up Mt. Evans, rode the Georgetown Loop RR, toured an old silver mine and panned for gold. Had lots of fun!

The campground is very nice, has level pads with concrete patios, good wifi and cable. Sites are not too close together. Restrooms, showers, and laundry are clean and in good condition. The only part we did not like is the difficult, steep, winding road. There should be an exit off of the Parkway. That would be SO much easier than having to go down into town and then climb back up again!

Beautiful location, very accommodating staff. Our group was treated very well. I would highly recommend this KOA.
