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!

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.

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.

It's was amazing!!

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.

beautiful view

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.

We were fortunate to have the Central City overlook out of our motorhome. Nothing compares to this beautiful view of that valley!

The best koa we have ever stayed in. Super clean. Nice staff. Amazing view. We will be back and tell others about it

Clean and well organized! Free shuttle into Central City.

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.

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.

Like they say, there's camping and there's KOA. Personally I prefer camping.

The campground and employees were wonderful. The only downfall was that some of the guests do not abide by the quiet hours. Very disappointing that Harley riders have to rev up their bikes at 6:00am daily. If they would just start them and go on their way, it wouldn't be so bad, but they sit there and idle or give it gas so the whole campground can hear them. Wish this was addressed in handout.

Had a great time; really liked be able to go to Rocky Mt. Nat. Park. The experience of getting there was a brand new for someone who never had to deal with grades of more than 6 percent.
Aug 03, 2015
Great stay.
Aug 03, 2015
Very friendly, nice concrete pads,great tent sites, nice dog area difficult to get there
Aug 03, 2015
Good stay as usual. Only problem was a broken sewer connection on 47 but we worked around it. Thanks.

The location was amazing - great views, very clean. But the (young) front desk person was rude, especially when I pointed out that her answers to our questions about transportation to/from town after dark were the exact opposite of what I heard when I made the reservation (by phone). Sad that their customer service is lacking.

Great site overlooking Black Hawk and Central City. Friendly Staff, a neat, clean Park.
Aug 03, 2015
Great visit! Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Always a pleasant stay with nice staff and clean quiet accommodations.

Very nice campground. Very quiet and clean.

You need to be a mountain goat to get to the camp ground. Need to have exit off highway and not have to back track through town up steep, narrow and twisty road.
Aug 02, 2015
Did not like being by a walk way to the office and showers.To much traffic with everyone walking by looking into our trailer otherwise I would like to come back to different camp site.
Aug 02, 2015
We had a beautiful view from our camper, enjoyed the pizza they served, and the pancakes the next morning.

We loved it. Leslie Smith in the kitchen was particularly nice. Our driver Bruce was the best. Food excellent.
Jul 29, 2015
Nice people, great views, clean restrooms. Sites make drive up the mountain worth it! Wish there was better dog area.

Nice KOA

People were great & friendly.

we had booked this site 3/1/15 and was told in May it was booked with someone else. I always book with this site in the comments and I knew we booked it first but I think my comment requesting this site went unseen so it was booked to someone else. We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in that you actually gave us this site because we did book it first so thank you for correcting this!!

Awesome camp hosts. Love the mountain top vistas.

The campground is very nice. However, our experience was quite traumatic. We had tickets to the Central City Opera House for 8:00 p.m. One of the couples who work at the campground committed to us (two women) that they would pick us up after the opera. The number they gave us wasn't accurate and I got only a recording when I called the campground number. We were stranded in Central City.

Very nice KOA
Jul 28, 2015
This KOA is so good, i changed my plans to come back for another stay. Being on top of this mountain is wonderful for watching the weather roll by. The staff is warm and friendly.
