Campground Reviews

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.

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 The bathrooms were outdated and the shower heads were positioned for someone around 4 feet tall.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.

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.

Wonderful. We have stayed here before and will again and I can't wait till we can stay again.

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.

It's always a joy staying at this KOA. It's our go-to place when staying in Estes!

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.

Very clean and well-maintained. The owners were very accommodating to our wishes.

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.

My family was camping at the Estes Park KOA during all of the horrific flooding. We were very grateful for all the help/info we received during our stay. Nebraska gal was very helpful and we were grateful for the updates she relayed on to us. Among all the chaos, the service was still good, bathrooms were in great condition, etc. We took Trail Ridge and made it home SAFE. Thank you for everything!

Enjoyed our stay... staff was friendly and the facility was clean. The sites, however, are too small.
Sep 16, 2013
Little disappointed that our camping area wasn't more private and that we didn't have our own fire ring at our campsite so we could have our own campfire.

I left the morning of Saturday September 14 and did not stay that night as your records indicate.

Our stay coincided with the terrible floods when Estes Park was cut off. Staff were friendly and helpful under considerable pressure allowing us to use office phone to rearrange flights. We finally managed to leave via Trail Ridge and catch flight.

Excellent staff and facilities, clean. Did not care for rv sites. ok for overnite stay only.Have stayed at better rv sites for less.

The cabin bed was too small for me to sleep comfortable. I am very tall I would suggest longer beds.

This is one of the oldest KOAs in the country. The size of the sites is a challenge, primarily because when the park was founded the sizes of units were much smaller, and there is little room for expansion. So, don't expect spacious parking. They do make up for this with excellent, friendly service and a clean facility. Location is great. WIFI improving.

The camping spaces were on top of each other. We had about 6 feet between us and the campers on both side of us. It was like camping in a apartment parking lot. The employees were friendly and facilities were nice and clean.
Sep 11, 2013
The stay was great. The only thing that was uncomfortable for a retired person was to get out of bed since the bed is against the wall. Other than that everything was fine. We had a great time staying at Estes Park and seeing the sights.

Very nice, clean, and quiet. I just got back yesterday and have so far told four people how great it is!

Stayed here before my trip into the back country of RMNP. Very helpful staff. Bathrooms were clean and store was not too expensive. The road is right next to the campground which is busy and loud.

The guy leading us to our camp site, led us into a low wooden wall which took out 1 of our stabilizing Jack's and the stairs into our travel trailer. We had to go buy a small ladder to get into the rv. We were there for 4 nights for the Highland Festival. This is our 1 st stay at a KOA and we were all crammed in to tight. Not impressed, and sorry we bought a KOA membership. This was the KOA in Es

Friendly staff, nice facility, clean bathrooms and nice laundry room.

This was a very nice campground for young families. However, the tent & Rv Sites are too cramped. We felt like we were all sleeping on top of each other and parking at the tent site was nearly impossible without a smart car.

I would like to have seen more kabins with kitchen/bathrooms. We requested in advance to have all our accommodations to be close as we had a large party. That didn't happen nor we we told when we requested it that it wasn't possible

This campground is very overcrowded - not just that it was full but the spaces are small and tight. The proprietor while trying to insure a clean campground and that everyone is minding the rules was a bit too "ever present". It was as if he was just waiting for you to do something wrong. We won't be back.
Sep 09, 2013
We have stayed here before, and very likely to stay here once again. Thanks for the great times!!
Sep 09, 2013
Great place to stay, great people. Some campers need to be reminded about "quiet time", but staff and campground are wonderful.
Sep 09, 2013
Nice place, very nice people
Sep 09, 2013
The tent area was basically right next to the highway with just a wood fence to mask noise. Campers were allowed to set up after midnight and then drunk campers showed after 1AM. Billets are very small and on top of each other. Was required to stay two nights after horrible first night.
Sep 09, 2013
Great place! Clean, well-laid out campground. Friendly people! We will definitely be back!

It was a nice place.

We loved all of the campers and staff at this KOA. The train for the kids was adorable and we loved the ice cram and pancakes and everything is so inexpensive at this KOA. Very clean site and friendly staff.

The waste dump site was good but in a very poor location which blocks traffic on the one-way uphill entrance to the camp sites. It was also unfortunate that I was quoted one price when I reserved by phone and had to pay an increased fee when we checked in. In other places of business, a customer would be granted the price quoted upon the reservation. A gracious gesture would be a refund.
