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.

We love that it is clean, has several amenities and close enough for a get a way and far enough to relax. We wish there was an exit off the Central City parkway instead of the winding hills down and up to it through Central City.

Wonderful site. Amazing staff. A pool would be nice but very good time. Thank you all.

Beautiful campground! Cleanest campground I've ever stayed in for 30 yrs of camping! Spotless baths, showers and laundry area. Tent spots are landscaped so nice and not packed all together! Friendly people! All around awesome KOA!

I stayed in a great tent site. The facility was very clean and well-maintained. I arrived after hours, and my reservation package was waiting for me. This is a beautiful campground and I would definitely stay here again.

The refund policy is non existant. the host was not around during busy hours. left for whole morning while not opening things up that guests were paying for. biggest impression made is they just want your money. did not feel like a campground . will never stay at a koa again. will make sure everyone i know doesn't go. will stick to statr and national parks.

We drove 19 hours and got to the campsite earlier than expected. Upon our arrival we were told that we could not check into till 2. The man that was working there never got ahold of us, and told us that all the other sites were taken, which was not the case. There was one other tent that had showed up. Basically we could have gotten set up camp earlier than 2 o'clock.

Very clean, nice staff, lots of amenities. Overnight host should have handled the arguing campers the night of 8/30 instead of our tent neighbor calling the police.

It was a bit more out of the way than we had thought it would be, but the service was great, the bath house was clean and well maintained, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the all you can eat pancakes!

The campground was clean, with nice views of the mountain tops outside Central City, CO. Convenient location for day trips into the mountains and to see local attractions. Not much space, however, so this is more of a base camp than a destination.

Loved the hot tubs on the cool nights.

Best KOA we stayed at this cross country journey. Good gift shop too.

The campground itself is clean and well-run. We truly appreciated the helpful a nd friendly staff. Quiet after 10, also good. The campground is very difficult to get to, which is why I am unlikely to recommend it to others.

Good location, friendly and easy-going staff. Bathrooms are reasonably clean, knowing how many people were visiting that weekend.

Arrived late at night, was given an alternate tent campsite to accommodate setting up more easily after dark. The place was really good at customer service. Liked the storage available in the showers to manage shampoos, soaps, razors and such. Hot tub was a disappointment both how it is situated more for winter weather and the fact it was unavailable during my stay, early August.


Sorry about the hot tubs but someone thought it would be funny to put bubble bath in them. Bubbles were cool looking but not fun to clean up.

Personal shuttle to town appreciated. The tent areas are beautiful, great view. Our favorite KOA of our vacation. Cliff and Pat

This was a treat! The tent site is surrounded by trees. The campground is high up in peaks west of Denver near an historic, picturesque town. The staff was cheerful and helpful.

The staff were very friendly 7 helpful. The campground was great & appears quite new. Washrooms were very clean and spacious. We were tenting and used laptops to keep in touch with family. We really appreciated the elec. outlet at the tree! The shuttle, restaurant recomm. and m/c ride routes were all appreciated.

wonderful time,clean,nice people

Wonderful views, easy for late check ins arrive and get to their site. Only downside is the approach, which felt like scaling a mountain vertically.

Would be better if the villege camp is not next to the kids playground.
