It is not a fancy place, but very accomodating. Good place to spend a night or two.
Jun 27, 2016
A good place to stay but did not seem as clean as on previous visits.
Jun 27, 2016
We think this is the best KOA we have ever stayed at. Good job, friendly staff. We will be back again.

The staff was super friendly, restrooms were clean. We only had a one night stay, but would definitely book again!
Jun 25, 2016
Very friendly staff; super clean facilities and sites, and close to Walmart & other nice merchants. Would definitely stay again if stopping in friendly La Junta.

Very nice, easily accessible and clean. A little short on shade, but what campground isn't. Quiet day and night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you & we completely agree on your shady comment - when you are in southern Colorado in the summer, it is either shade or air conditioning, right! We will be planting many more trees in September & continue to grow our "shadiness"!! Have a wonderful summer & travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Nice park well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. Had a group of 13 people stay they let us use the rec room to cook meals.

We stay there often and always enjoy our stay. Noticed nice improvements this time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We are working hard to not only maintain but improve. We will be planting a lot of trees in September, and working on the fencing & mini golf. We hope the rest of your summer is a great one - travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 20, 2016
We had not stayed in the LaJunta KOA for quite some time. There were so many improvements I can't name them all. Thank you for your hard work!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the recognition - we truly appreciate it! We will be planting many more trees in September, upgrading some of our mini golf greens, and improving the perimeter fence... stay tuned! Enjoy your summer & travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Loud train noise in the night (close to racks) and very buggy. Owner is very nice though and the pool, rec room, and bathrooms are super.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words! We are working with the city to spray for bugs on the outside of the park, as well as trying to improve the drainage where we can. It definitely can be buggy - campfires & tiki torches seem to help! Have a great summer & travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 20, 2016

Campground is well run. Restrooms are well kept. More long term 'campers' than most KOAs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words. We're very new at this (6 weeks & counting!), so your comments are encouraging! Wendee & Linda take pride in keeping the bathrooms clean. Have a wonderful summer & travel safe! Cheers! Brad
Jun 18, 2016
Friendly, warm reception. Sites close, but acceptable. Not a lot of space for dogs, but best poop pick up bags ever!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback & glad you liked our Mutt Mitts! Please check out the spaces in our new South section the next time you visit as they are much more spacious with nice grass islands, patio picnic tables & firerings between them. Safe travels! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Very good campgrounds. Nise showers and bathrooms. Close to shooting and restaurants. Only problem we had was the mosquitoes. Would stay in again if in the area. But we're a little pricey for tent camping with no water or electric.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice feedback. Yep, them mosquitoes can be nasty buggers! We are working to improve our tent camping, adding platforms & electrical hookups. We do have a big sink on our pool shack to serve tent campers & apologize if we didn't tell you about it. Travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

The manager and staff were very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We do have our moments, but that is what ice cream and/or an end-of-along-day dip in the pool is for, right! Travel safe. Cheers to you! Brad & Wendee
Jun 15, 2016
The birds will start at 4 am. Nothing has been done to prevent them. Their pool was covered in cotton wood seeds.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your thoughts! We have been in daily chats with Mother Nature about these issues as well as the wind, rain & heat, but she is clearly in the driver's seat & generally treats us pretty good. The pool is cleaned daily, but our cottonwoods like having their "summer snow"! Cheers! Brad&Wendee
Jun 14, 2016
New management. Very agreeable and cooperative. They took good care of our small organizational group. My only comment on the negative side would be that the pull through sites were a little short for our larger rigs. We will stop here any time we are in the area. Happy Campers, ALL!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words & for bringing your group to camp with us. Our sites in the North (old) section are indeed a little short- campers were a wee bit smaller 40 years ago! The South section is new & the spaces are much longer and ... spacious! Cheers! to you & safe travels. Brad & Wendee
Jun 13, 2016
One of the friendliest campgrounds we have stayed at. Highly recommend!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow! Thank you for your kind words & please come back anytime!! Safe travels. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Campground was clean and well kept and had many nice features like a pool, playground, and dog park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback and we're glad you liked the park. We encourage you to contact us at 719-834-9580 or at lajunta@koa.com to let us know how we could do better. Have a good summer & safe travels. Cheers! Brad & Wendee, your hosts.
Jun 12, 2016
Excellent staff. We were assigned the wrong site, as someone was in it. The KOA team made the correction and we were assigned a new site immediately. Very friendly and helpful team in La Junta, thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback & kind words! We're getting better everyday at the challenge of campground chess, moving the campers as needed to best meet their needs, but every once in a while we try to squeeze 2 campers in 1 site- and it doesn't work! LOL! Imagine that! Travel safe & cheers! Brad&Wendee
Jun 09, 2016
Tent site had unmowed grass, couldn't really find a decent spot for the tent, but bathrooms / showers were nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. We are going to install woodchip-filled tent platforms to improve our tent camping facilities as well as electric hookups so campers can stay charged up. We invite you to stop by down the road - travel safe - & see our improvements later this summer. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 09, 2016
Nice campground. Internet was in and out

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. We have a meeting this week with our internet & WIFI provider to discuss improving our coverage & signal. It is great in some areas of the park and not so great in others. Have a safe & fun summer! Cheers! Brad & Wendee & Zane, our IT Guru!

Rude. Wouldn't let us stay in a tent site with our 10'x4' teardrop,we don't need any hookups.i guessed because of the wheels on grass,but later saw a tent camper,with a tent but their car is parked right by the tent on the grass. But we were forced to pay $40 for a crappy site and for things we didn't need. Also they have a 10:00 check out. Didn't know till morning, and we didnt have time to showe

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hmmm...not sure really what to say here. The rate was $30.06 total; check-out is 12, which we always extend if possible when asked; & there is a fence between the grass & tent camper parking. We have reached out to this camper with no response but would still welcome a conversation. Cheers! Brad & W

Helpful staff. Clean bathrooms. Lots of shade trees. Nice laundry facilities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words, and we really do have a nice laundry, don't we! Our predecessors did a fine job on the clothes lounge, and given these hot days, thanks to all the prior owners for the wonderful shade trees! We're planting more! Travel safe & see you again soon. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

We stay at this KOA at least once a year for a number of years. The front end slots are nice..the new, back slots not so good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback & we're curious to know what you would recommend to improve the sites in back. They are longer & wider, have grass islands instead of rock & have fire rings with patio picnic tables ...and in a few years, they'll have shade once the trees grow! Be safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 02, 2016
They have the best dog run at a KOA that I have stayed in. We have been in many and this one is by far the best. I love the pea gravel. I have been in ones with stickers in them and so far away that there is no way we can get to them in time. Like they were ashamed that dogs have to go. Joy/Colorado

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Why, thank you! We have to give credit where credit is due, and that is to our predecessors, Mike & Julie. They did a great job on the K9 Corral! I hope all dogs are listening and bring their masters to come visit. We're adding a dog pool as well! Safe travels to you. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Nice clean campground.Person in office could have been a little more on the ball. Very slow to be at counter. No coffee made at 9am.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're thinking that our person in the office probably had not had their coffee! Our team had a good coffee table discussion about your feedback & decided that we will always have a fresh pot ready by 7:35 AM on Friday-Sunday and make it upon request the rest of the week. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

HAD A NICE STAY. NOT ENOUGH TV CHANNELS.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the feedback and we're glad you had a nice stay. We do offer 30 channels of cable in the front of the park (including the FOOD CHANNEL!) and a clear shot to the sky in the back for those with satellite dishes.... Enjoy your travels and we hope to see you soon! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

I needed a repair done on my RV and staff was very helpful in finding the right person for the job.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apparently have some great mechanics in La Junta! Now, if we could only find someone to fix all those awnings that many struggle with...! Thanks for the kind feedback & travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 01, 2016
campers are too close together have to share the table space

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In the older section of the park, you are spot on - but sharing can be a good thing, right? On your next visit, please ask about the newer/back section - lots more elbow/slide-out room, grass islands, fire rings, patio pads with picnic tables - very nice, indeed. Travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 01, 2016
We had a very pleasant stay. The only problem we had was with the sewer system. An adjacent inlet overflowed as we emptied our tank. We would certainly stay there again, in fact, we did stay twice on this trip, one night on the outbound trip and one coming back home.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were most gracious guests & we appreciated your understanding. We have since bought a 400 gallon water tank & trailer to flush our lines weekly - fun stuff, yeah! It will keep 469-DEAN (roto-rooter man) at bay! Have a safe & fun summer of travel. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Great hosts and campground. We will be back for our next birding trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback and kind words. We do have lots of birds aroudnd this area, don't we! La Junta has a lot to offer. Have a most excellent summer, keep those binoculars clean, and travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

This KOA was clean, nice sites, and well maintained. Check in wasn't up to par. Owners' young son checked us in and we weren't able to use our points (had enough) for free night. He was clueless. More than once sign on door, "back in 10 minutes", which didn't happen. People gathered outside waiting. Could have had better customer relations.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your feedback - that is how we improve, so thank you. We are new (bought the campground on May 2nd; we've felt very clueless more than once this past month!) & now know how to reward Value Kard points and staff our check-in. We'll do better! Travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
May 31, 2016
Nice campground BUT left standing water in a huge puddle by the door to rec room so we had to wade through it to get inside each time. No attention to detail. Grass was not cut either. This was Memorial weekend and should have been better prepared.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the feedback -that is how we get better. We are working on grading our roads for better drainage, esp. in front of the RecRoom at puddle central, & getting our maintenance program organized. We hit the holiday with less than 4 weeks of experience, but we're learning. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
