This is a wonderful KOA. The staff went above and beyond what they needed to do to make our stay pleasant. Such a clean camp ground. My grandkids kept saying how nice the people that worked there were. You deserve 10 stars. The Redings

It is close to everything in Central City. The restrooms were clean and the showers were hot. We enjoyed our stay. Also enjoyed the pizza and big screen tv.

Found the office closed a few minutes early the night I arrived; aggravating. Some problems in the ladies room, too (broken toilet, clogged shower drains, lack of t.p.). Site was fine. Also, Leslie, who makes breakfast, is fantastic.

We were surprised to find that this KOA is conveniently located to great restaurants and things to do in Idaho Springs and Central City. The KOA store had everything we needed and we loved the all-you-can-eat pancakes breakfast. The tent site was spacious. Only complaint was the site was almost too close to the cabins with not much barrier between (provided little privacy on the backside - not goo

Great location. Beautiful scenery, well stocked store, extremely clean bathrooms. Great place to stay!

Nice campground. Quiet. Seemed family oriented when we were there. No parties or obnoxious drunkenness during our stay. Be aware this camp is at 9000 feet and it is COLD at night in a tent. Not a problem, just a comment. No difficulties getting into the campground. Only thing that would make it better is if the store was open earlier and later.

This is the nicest KOA we have ever stayed at, and if we are in the area again would definitely stay there.

This was our first time at a KOA and we loved it. We tent camped in their wooded site, and it was very nice. Perfect amenities, super nice staff, and everything was clean. I was impressed and comfortable. Thank you for making our weekend awesome!

If only you would have informed us of the problem before you left we could have taken action. Sorry for your disturbance.

Clean and friendly.

Best place to stay. Staff friendly and once the new highway entrance is complete, getting to the campground itself will make a huge difference. Being new, we saw a lot of work being done and the new signage sure helped. PLUS there is plenty to do in the area if you don't want to go into Denver itself.

clean, friendly,wonderful views!

Terrific tent site, loved the shade and privacy! Neighbors were LOUD, need to not have pets allowed where you have a sign that says "NO pets in this area", dog barked starting at 5:00 am. Men in cabins drinking and talking very loudly until 2:00am. Nobody in office to complain to at that time so I didn't sleep that night. Hot tub was cold the first night, but great otherwise. Nice showers.

Very clean! KOA employees were wonderful, helpful, and very friendly. One of the nicest KOAs we have visited!

Extremely pleased. The campground was very clean and comfortable. The cabin was much larger than I expected. Great trip!

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

Very Nice

An excellent and efficient campground. Well run.

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.
May 25, 2016
Get staff, location, very peaceful and clean!
May 18, 2016
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.

Staff was friendly. Great amenities. Beautiful location.

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?
Sep 26, 2015
great they need more electrical tent sites

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.
