Chuck was awesome. Even though there was 34 inches of snow he showed every hospitality imaginable. It was really clean and everyone there was so helpful. They made sure the roads were plowed so we could drive our mini van around and not get stuck in all the snow.. Which happens a lot in a mini van.. It was absolutely wonderful and we highly recommend staying at this campground!

Staff was very helpful, the bathrooms/showers/hot tubs were well-maintained and *super* clean. The campsite is beautiful and has lots of updates/extras.

we enjoyed the hot tub after driving all day and the breakfast .

I camped here in a tent with my daughter. The site afforded privacy and was very well maintained. The bathrooms were very clean and the laundry facilities were ample.

Great place running water, restrooms, two hot tubs, fire pits, charcoal grill, and all you can eat pancakes in the a.m., most important is the excellent and ultra friendly staff

We have been camping for 37 days, and that included about 15 KOA's and this one was the best for friendliness, cleanliness, & facilities. Our tent site on the hill felt like being in the wilderness, the hot tubs were great, but it was the workers that stood out. Thanks to the employees that were camping on the hilltop for being so helpful and friendly! Bruce & Nancy Head, Celina, OH

We had a dead battery and management jumped it right helpful.

Love this KOA. The location is close enough to Denver that staying here for a Denver-based trip is easy, but you are also away from the City in a quiet location.

Very nice facilities and clean campground. Nice and helpful staff. Right next to the highway which can be loud at night. And sadly there were power lines in the middle of our mountain view. Not very remote but had a great time camping and a big fire!

Great staff, facilities and location. Some road noise towards entrance, but a bargain any way you look at it!

This is a newer KOA; staff is friendly; I asked one of them to get my towels off the table and put them in my tent; she did not do that; they were soaking wet and dirty when I got back. Can't be depended on to do what they say. I would stay here only when rain is NOT in the forecast.

Tent site great. Bathrooms good size and clean. NEED better directions especially for those coming in at night

Staff is very friendly. Came and stayed for one night as we were traveling through. Showers clean and warm. Tent camp sites are shaded and not on top of each other. Would stay here again when traveling through next time.

The tent sites in the wooded areas are really not camper friendly. You have to walk up a hill to transport camping gear. The female hostess was rude and snotty and definitely not hospitable. It rained the two nights that we were there and we checked out three days early. When I walked by some of the other staff they did not even smile or acknowledge that I was a GUEST there. NEVER AGAIN!!!


Sorry about the rain.

Mama bear and two cubs visited the camp. Free lift to Central City. Supper friendly staff. Great campground.


Thank you, please pass on the word about us, it was wonderful having you.

This KOA was not a good choice for us. It is miles away and UP (almost +4,000 ft!)from Golden, CO. It is inconvenient to go anywhere from the site. Also tent site was up a hill from car parking and so we were hauling stuff up and down the entire time. Finally, there is no dog run. It looks like one is planned though. On a good note, Mike is a happy talkative and astute camp manager.

If we had been in an RV I may have ranked this campground higher but this is not a place for tent campers. It seems to be more of a pitstop than an actual camping ground. Our tent site was right next to the bathhouse and at all hours of the night people would drive up and go to the bathroom. Great spot for passing through in an RV, not camping in a tent.

Nice campground but not a lot to do there with families

Everything was great and neat! Glad they allowed children in the hot tub and internet was good! Just unexpected the driving from highway to KOA was much further than I expected.

The employee were friendly and the facilities were over all clean. The problem I have is with the people staying in the camp site next to us. They were openly using illegal drugs and discussing inappropriate topics for my young children. They put on a drug induced light show that my 8 year old son wanted to watch. I should not be forced to explain the behavior to my children.

This is a fantastic KOA - easily the best I've ever stayed at. The owners are clearly competent and caring people; the tidiness and full-featured facilities are clean, welcoming and inviting.

Tent site is too close to the road and entrance parking. Also, guiding signs inadequate on extremely steep and difficult to navigate roads. That said, the facility and services themselves were the best I encountered in my 20 states journey.

This was my first stay at a KOA, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. As a senior woman camping alone I felt very comfortable and safe. I enjoyed the General Store. The prices were good and there were some really nice things that you just don't see. The restrooms, rec room, and showers were very clean. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic. The other campers I met were nice. Thank you!

Would have been better but a drunk lady screaming kept everyone awake for over an hour. Would have been nice to have security or someone stop it earlier.

We had a great stay! The facilities were well maintained & kept extremely clean. The couple managing the place were great & very helpful. Not as senic as we were hoping, but a great stay.
