Campground Reviews

May 27, 2014
Fun, close to town. Very busy and neighbors are very close.
May 27, 2014
We were lucky enough to have one of the best spots (7). Had trees covering us and close to bathrooms. After seeing other campgrounds in the town we will return here before going to the other ones.

The campground was tight for our tastes and a bit pricey. While we understand the property is limited, it just wasn't what we prefer for camping.
May 26, 2014
Everyone wearing a "yellow KOA shirt" was wonderful - helpful and always nice! Additionally we LOVED our cabin! It was SO CLEAN!

Got stuck an extra day when it snowed with so many spots open the staff didn't need to park another rig right next to us. Nice clean restrooms & friendly people.

We were parked in a spot that seemed like the easement of Hwy 34. Traffic was deafening! The owner parked us and wouldn't let us park at the edge of our campsite to give us room to put out our awning because that wouldn't let the people on the right have enough room. Our son had an RV he had to drive straight in because his bed would be on this easement of the Hwy. They did allow a late departure.

Kamping Kabins super cute. Very clean; staff wonderful. Have been to some KOA's where there is a lot to do. This one very small and limited with activities. Lots to do around there but at the KOA itself, very limited. All in all it is a great place.

We have just bought a trailer and this is our first experience in an RV Park. Everyone there was extremely helpful and ready to answer any of our questions. We would gladly recommend Estes Park KOA to our friends and family.

Staff was very nice, but park is dated and could use some work.

Very nice smaller Koa. No longterm residents that we could see.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
May 12, 2014
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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
