The campsite where I stayed was a great spot except for the wind was high during the stay so dust was flying around. I would suggest picking a campsite which is blocked by brush.

We enjoyed our stay at Estes Park KOA. The staff was very nice, and it was a very clean campground. Our only complaint was that our tent site was rock, and it made it very difficult to let our little one play.

Nice place, the tent spaces feel private enough even though they're next to each other. Clean facilities with hot water. One computer with wifi in the main office/store, convenient. Across the street there is a lake park that is nice to walk around and there are nearby hiking trails. Free shuttle into town. Friendly and competent staff.

The camp was clean and quite. I plan on staying again next time we visit .

Always the best camping experience anywhere. Friendly, quiet, clean and a great location.

Restroom/shower was fantastic! Although the campground was completely full we did not feel cramped. We'll definitely be back.

Noisy! Right by the highway. Staff more interested in kicking us out of the playground than in making sure quiet hours are enforced.

The tent sites are too close to a very busy road and we had some very rude neighbors. However, the staff is incredibly nice, the facilities are clean and they have a lot of great activities for kids and families. Overall, it was a nice stay.

We stayed for three nights during a Father's Day promotion where kids stay free. It was me, my wife, our two daughters and our Husky, Tala. The staff at the Estes Park KOA were so cordial and friendly, my family didn't want to leave. They also went out of their way for us, since I had a rather large tent, the moved us to a bigger spot with no hesitations. We had such a great time!!!

Great location. Great service.

Great place to stay, we just had the worst fire pit and right on the busy highway.

Great staff. Clean facilities. We have young children and they loved the train rides, playground, and ice cream

The tent site was awesome right next to some bushes, and I could hear a creek. The bathrooms on one side were individual, and CLEAN! Every employee was friendly and very helpful, and remembered what I had planned for my activities, and asked how my day went. I'll be back!

Great office assistance. Wish office would open a bit earlier in the morning, but other than that, clean site, clean rest rooms, great location for fishing.

We really only stayed the one night to visit with our friends from Florida! We did all our cooking together at their site. Except for the spaces being really too close together, and being too close to the highway (we normally stay at state parks) your KOA had lovely amenities!

This campground is built for RV's. There are very few tent/popup sites, and those are located right in the front of the camp, which is right next to the highway. This made for a lot of noise. I understand the design of this campground, but had I known the location of the tent site, I would not have booked. Rhese sites do not have their own firepit, which was disappointment. Clean bathrooms though!

We had a large group coming in several different nights in several different accommodations... the KOA staff was so helpful in getting us as close together as possible! The park was clean and fun for the kids. The bathrooms were clean and close. The train, marshmallows and ice cream were my daughters favorite. We had a great time and the weather was good to us too.

I had a great time here. I have been here before and I am always impressed with the care the workers put into this KOA. If you are looking for a great place with a great view at a great price this is where you want to be.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great place! Clean, well-laid out campground. Friendly people! We will definitely be back!

We are new to the pop up trailor camping tradition, and I cannot thank you all enough for the fine care. Bud, one of the staff members helped us back in the trailor with expert skill, kindness and humor, making my wife look like a pro and setting a standard on how to communicate backing up effectively. Great support, nice people, clean bathrooms in the heart of a wonderful national park. Wow!

Excellent service and venue

Bad sewer smell around tent sites. Shower facilities were clean and staff were nice. Beautiful location.

Truly the most efficient run camp ground I've stayed in many years. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. Will be back next season. Thank you for a very clean environment.

The facilities are very nice and the owners are friendly and helpful. Most tenting sites have covers over the picnic tables for shelter if it rains. The horse stable next to the campground does smell a bit if the wind is blowing the wrong way. It is very close to town and is generally quiet at night.

Friendly staff, clean facilities, well stocked store. Our family really enjoyed our stay!!

The tent camping was awful. Manure smell from next door horse stable and gravel to sleep on make is very unpleasant. However, the management was very kind and refunded us our second night without question. Just know what you're getting, because this tent camping area is not like the regular standard koa we've experienced around the country.

It is not a place I would tent camp again. My sister who brought her popup was in a much quieter area and had little trouble. What bothered us was the noise and the smell. We had a very loud group next to us that did not obey the quiet rules, plus we only saw them get enforced once. Also we were down wind from the porter potty and could smell it and the horse stables next door all night long.
Aug 19, 2013
I was told my campsite would be next to porta potties but that usually they didn't get complaints and they didn't seem to bother campers. Well the first night the smell was overwhelming and we could definitely smell them.
Aug 16, 2013
Tent sites were wedged in on top of each other. Our tent was less then 2 feet from the pop up trailer tent next to us. Sites were literally right next to a four lane highway with traffic roaring by all night long.
