Tent Reviews

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.

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 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.

the campground was clean and well cared for. I just wish it had more tent sites away from the play ground.

The shuttle ride to the city was amazing. Already planning on my next trip out.

A it confusing to get to due to new road construction (STEEP, curvy approach, which was fine in my car, but could be tough in a big rig), but really amazing campground in a really unique and amazing town. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff, excellent sites and ammenities.

Tent sites had no trees. Great play ground for kids! Nice showers too.

We arrived late at night right as the staff was closing up the office. The gentleman leaving saw us and got out of his car to help us get situated. He was very helpful and friendly. Great campground! Loved the hot tub and the pizza. Well kept and will be back again.
