The caretakers were super friendly, and very helpful in giving directions to things on our itinerary, and suggestions to other things we should see that weekend as well as things to come back to see/do later in the season.

Very nice/inviting staff. Allowed me to check in early as the room was ready in advance. Excellent location to town and activities. Cabin and facilities were outstanding. This will be our new family vacation spot for Estes Park.

Wonderful management! We greatly enjoyed our stay even with the blizzard. Thank you!

Brochure said campfires allowed, yet we built one, and was told not allowed because of all the propane. However, the heated cabins had propane tanks with fire rings and gas grills next to them. Didn't make any sense. Will not stay here again. The camp hosts manning check-in/store weren't the friendliest I have ever encountered at a KOA.

Too tight for comfort. No campfire ring. Left a day early.

This camper's RV experience is regrettably accurate. Our RV sites are among the smaller spaces in the RV camping industry. Regrettably, if you are looking for a large RV site out in the woods or forest, Estes Park RV Parks do not have much to offer you.

The staff were great. Appreciated their help in parking the trailer. Grounds, restrooms, activities were as expected. Great.

If you like being crammed into very close spaces--- I guess this is camping.

Great friendly and helpful staff.

It was my first stay at KOA. I was looking for an alternative to tent camping. I stayed in one of the cabinsand it was just what I was looking for. In addition to being pleased with the cabin, the entire staff couldn't have been more pleasant. Since it was my first vist, I had lots of questions and they answered them all completely and with a smile. I'm looking forward to many more stays at KOA.

We had to leave early because of the snow storm, but we will be back!

Camp a little crowded but to be expected in such a location.
May 12, 2014
We stayed during a promotion, (second day free). Didn't stay the second night because of impending bad weather,but had to pay a fee for checking out after check out time of the first day. I guess "free" isn't actually free.

Regretfully, this camper was confused. She was only charged for the one night she stayed here. There were no additional or late checkout charges at all. Wish there was a way to show this to the camper and have a negative review removed.

The pet policy is tantamount to extortion. Of all the KOA's we've used, this is our least favorite. Also, the men's bathroom was so malodorous that it was difficult to even use. Never again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm not sure what they mean about our pet policy. Their record indicates they had 2 dogs. We have lots of campers staying with us each summer with 2 or more dogs. On many nights each summer we might have 30-40 dogs on the campground. Sorry about our men's room odor. Wish they mentioned it to us.

The staff was excellent. Very helpful Went out of their way to help us with our needs.

Needed better dog walk area.
May 04, 2014
very peaceful, clean place to stay. Also, next door to lake walk, horse ranch, go carts/mini golf and river fishing. Somewhat pricey though.

Beautiful view of Long's Peak with fresh snow.

Had a nice time at the KOA in Estes Park, CO.

For a cabin in the mountains & cold weather, you would think that a bigger heater would be provided for guest. We froze to death during our night there. Also, the shower facilities were not very clean or up to date with mold on the ceiling. Then there was not a club house of sort to use a microwave or enjoy any other facility games or activities pool table, tv. This is the worst I have stayed at

We are sorry this camper did not find our campground experience satisfactory. In our defense, we open May 1st each summer. They wanted to camp here a week before we opened. Historically, if we are here, we allow campers in with the caveat that we are not fully cleaned up or setup yet for the summer.

Our stay at this koa was very enjoyable. It is very close to town and Rocky Mountain National Park. We loved the one room cabin! The bathrooms were outdated and the shower heads were positioned for someone around 4 feet tall. Other than having to duck and squat to shower, we loved our overall experience! We would stay here again in the future.

Clean restrooms, friendly staff, thanks!

Very clean enjoyed ice cream social and watching kids enjoy the train. Great location for getting to downtown. Sites are very close together though but putting the picnic tables out front was a super good idea to make seem larger. While in Estes Park also stayed at Mary's Lake but would prefer KOA for location and cleaniness of site area.

Owners opened campground for elk fest after the flood in Estes Park. It was very thoughtful of them and the campers who made the effort seemed to be happy they did that for us. We had a great time.

Always have a great time when I'm at the koa in este park. Always great friends and great staff that is always friendly thanx
Sep 30, 2013
Wonderful. We have stayed here before and will again and I can't wait till we can stay again.
Sep 30, 2013
It was bit windy as a storm followed us in. The park was clean and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating two weeks after we had planned to stay because of the record rainfall that hit Colorado.

I was very pleased with our stay at Estes Park KOA. The location was good, the cabins were nice, and the staff was very helpful.
Sep 29, 2013
It's always a joy staying at this KOA. It's our go-to place when staying in Estes!
Sep 20, 2013
The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. The cabin was nice and comfortable. However, it was not as clean as it should have been (it was dirty in the corners, under and behind furniture).

First time staying in a two room cabin. It was really good. I would suggest that instead of two sets of bunk beds, that they replace on set with another double bed. I also was amazed that we were charged for a 2nd vehicle. I understand being charged extra for additional people, but not for the extra vehicle. I don't understand the why the charge.
Sep 18, 2013
Very clean and well-maintained. The owners were very accommodating to our wishes.
Sep 18, 2013
Thank you so much for the great hospitality. Such a pleasure to come and stay. We weren't sure just when we would be leaving due to the flood but it all worked out great and we can't wait to come up and visit again in the springtime. The Landis Family and Puppy

The staff were friendly and helpful. I am glad I got a cabin since it rained the entire time I was there. Thanks I will be back.
