This has by far been my favorite KOA camping experience. The camp was so well taken care of, beautiful and organized. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. We will be back some day.

The Spencer family went above and beyond to make our stay great. They also did a great job with the race day events.

Came to Central City as part of a city sponsored car race/show event. Stayed at the KOA. Great views, great management, clean and well run park. Cool temps, definitely better than driving up from Denver each day.

The drive to get to the campground from I 70 is steep, curving and long. Once you finally get to Central City, you have to climb back up to the KOA. Our F350 struggled pulling our 38 ft. fifth wheel up the mountain again and thru the hairpin curves. The mountain view from the sites is pretty, but obscured by apartment buildings right in front of you.

Inconvenient to get to. Once checked in, staff did not interact with guests unless the guests went into the office. The view is great once in campground!

They did not have bear proof trash cans and did not warn visitors that there were a mother and her cubs in the campground regularly. They are putting pets and families at risk! When asked they admitted that the bears raided the trash cans but were in the park for only minutes. There are tents with children next to the trashcans. My dog was tied up only a few feet from where the bears were see

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have it posted that bears have been seen in the area. Our tent sites are not next to the trash cans. We also would never recommend leaving your loving pet tied up outside unattended.

We had a wonderful time, the sites were clean, fairly level and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this KOA to my friends. Thank you.

Center spaces by the office are very stark. Lots of traffic, early morning noise. owners/managers very friendly and camp is very neat and clean. Good store, laundry, hot tub and shuttle avail to Blackhawk.

I'm hesitant to give this place the rating it deserves. It is already hard to get into during prime season. I don't really want to recommend because that will only make it harder to get a place! Scenic, clean & well-maintained. The staff was helpful and caring. The only quirky thing about this camp is the akward route you have to take up to central city and then back down the mt. to the camp.

Nice KOA with many amenities and great views but there are a couple of reasons I did not rate it higher. Although the park is very pet friendly be advised the entire park is rock or gravel except for the RV pads which are very nice concrete. My labs like to run and retrieve and there's no grassy area to do that for your pets. A fenced in play area would be nice. Steep grades, take hwy 119 to KOA.

We had a great stay at Denver West. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The view from our campsite was nothing short of beautiful. The amenities at the park made our stay comfortable. We will definetely stay there again.

Gorgeous views and great camp sites! Love the hot tubs also.

You could collect outgoing mail and take iit to post office when you pick your mail up like all other parks do as many do not have tow cars!

Nice clean camp sites, friendly people.

Interesting way of driving in and a little challenging. Loved the campsite. Was disappointed in the hot tub as there was a slight odor of mildew which reacted violently with my husbands allergies. Yes we would come back, and hopefully as we return back across country, the hot tub can be corrected

Attactive resort in an interesting area. HOWEVER, the road in is very difficult for a big rig and I cannot recommend anyone of larger size attempt the hairpin turns

Awesome facilities, staff and a million dollar view.

I was tired and stressed, but when we got to our beautiful site, overlooking the town and the mountains, all the stress went away! So gorgeous and the owners and staff were GREAT!! There could not have been a happier place for me and my granddaughter!!

We had the best time, at nearly 9,000 ft, that anyone could have at the Central City KOA. The spot was perfect with a view of the woods on one side and mountains on the other three. The staff were freindly, our son loved the pancake breakfast, clean laundry, clean restrooms and a well stocked store. Thanks for the memories.

Every time we stay it just keeps getting better. Staff was very helpful. Thanks for a great stay.

Very nice staff, especially when they had to deal with flooding. Dog walk area was just a wide spot in the road. Location is nice once you get there but it is awkward making sharp turn in Central City.
Jul 20, 2014
Great views from campsites. Nice clean free showers. Super friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. The pancake breakfast is awesome too. WiFi and sprint connection both great.
Jul 20, 2014
My biggest complaint is the road getting there. Too steep with switchbacks when it's only 100 yards from the main road. Why no entrance there? The park has level sites, good gravel roads and concrete pads. Dog areas are just gravel and not fenced.

Personnel agréable et tente de satisfaire toutes nos demandes.

Awesome, friendly staff, breathtaking view, spotless showers/bathrooms, great pancake breakfast.
