Bathrooms not clean- broken toilets, paper on ground, sinks sloppy wet. Music in bathroom too loud all night long. Tent sites in a terrible location- by the road with no screening from the traffic- no trees or bushes. Camp culture not amenable to tenting- people up until 1:30 socializing. Generally an unpleasant visit. This is not a quiet campground- i think the casino changes the KOA dynamic

Great campsites for tenters, restrooms not very clean, bearpoop near the container and a lot of garbage on the hill behind the container. That container has to be made bearproof!

We rented a tent campsite. The place was great and all of the amenities were fine. However I feel like it was overpriced and I do not know if I would go back and pay that much again.

Extremely helpful staff in every way, could not ask for a better place to stay. I purchased firewood and smores stuff from them but it rained the whole time I was there and they refunded me. All camp sites should be this courteous.

Great service, been staying here for couple years. Clean, friendly, wi-fi, big screen tv, games just in case of rain and best of all hot tubs. Can't beat that!!!

Would have been nice to wash my clothes, didn't have enough quarters and no quarter machine and nobody in the office from 9-11am couldn't wait anymore so my underwear are still dirty!

KOA Central City, CO was great! Tented it a NICE spot w/electric. Great bathrooms & showers. Visit from a big bear at night because a camper across the path from us forgot to put all food away. Police came & scared him off -excitement for the night! All you can eat pancakes in the AM for $3. What could be better?

We spent the last weekend of summer staying at the Central City KOA, nearly 9,000 ft above sea level. This location is top notch! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean and well maintained. The kitchen serves breakfast and pizza. Two hot tubs are available for camper use. The mountain views are beautiful. We look forward to our next stay. Jamie V.

Great size showers (many campgrounds are really small). Would suggest a small trash can in the shower stall areas. Nice people and nice to have a rec room to use.

Good place and good peoples It was more then happy to stay one night with nice people
Sep 06, 2015
It was a little more expensive than I hoped for just a tent spot with no hookups, but I guess that was partly because of the hottubs which I enjoyed using.
Aug 25, 2015
This is nice place,but we didt really like our spot while was located kind of in a middle of two roads,like a's good not so many cars was passing by,but with 3 kids running back and forth to play ground we always need to check if they ok. There was place next to play ground,but there is no trees and next to the road,doesn't feel like camping. Hot tub is great!

The camp was very clean, well marked areas, good facilities, Breakfast was great, very friendly staff. Look forward to visiting again

Wireless internet could use some upgrades but otherwise great place to stay. Clean facilities, great hot tubs. Have stayed multiple times and will again.

Very easy and convenient even though I got in late they had all the information I needed to find my site
Aug 14, 2015
Best KOA and staff too!
Aug 12, 2015
Best bathrooms in a camp ever! Tent spots between Aspen trees and easy to navigate RV pads.
Aug 12, 2015
Great campground. clean and friendly. The pizza and pancakes were perfect for our quick 1 night stay and made our experience simple and easy.
Aug 12, 2015
Wish there were some trees around the tent village.
Aug 11, 2015
The people who run this KOA were very polite and friendly. The amenities were excellent for what I needed/expected. The location was a little confusing to get to, but not impossible. Over all, it was a very enjoyable stay.
Aug 10, 2015
Friendly staff and clean facility. I will stay there again next year on vacation.

It is very noisy by the pool, but expected the movie blaring full blast with no one watching it didn't help. Great campground to launch our cross country trip each year

Positives: Great location for seeing mountains and close to Denver. Negatives: Central city is not for kids. No amenities for children. Aroma of skunk marijuana was quite discouraging.

The campsite was nice. It had clean big bathrooms. The camp site was a little small but fine. The store was open from 8am to 9pm so that was nice but they don't have alcohol so bring some of you want it. There were a lot of other thing like a playground, hot tub, and a place that cooks pizzas at night and pancakes in the morning. The site we stayed in was very secluded as well.

First time there, liked the place overall. The tent sites are up a hill which means if you have a car you have to pack your gear up a hill. The management was nice and the addition of a Hunt Bros. Pizza on site was great.

Great place , Clean and I got there on buffalo wing night
Aug 01, 2015
The facilities where small. Not very many amenities. Not a tent friendly camp ground or area. Would not stay again.
Aug 01, 2015
Was a little hard to get to in the near dark, but our site was lovely and the staff very helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.
