Very nice comfortable place. Will stay there again.

The pool is very small and crowded. They were watering all the activity areas during the afternoon so you couldn't play volleyball or take your dog to the dog park. Everything stayed wet (and muddy in the dog park) all afternoon. I'm all for a beautiful green place to stay but could we water first thing in the morning instead.

all were helpful to make our camping most enjoyable

Its a great campground, but the noise from the nearby highway is a definite downside. Lots of great things to do nearby and they have a great book of local menus, hikes, etc. Its right on the bike path.

Didn't appreciate the late checkout fee charged to my card.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our check-out time is 11 AM & guests are responsible of knowing their check-out date. I believe a $15 late fee is more than reasonable, seeing your check-out was 5 hours past, with no communication from you and the next guest having to wait for their site, in which you still occupied.

My husband and I had a wonderful trip. We stayed in Cabin 5 right by the river. The cabin was clean and well appointed. It had everything we needed for a great week. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us many good ideas on where to fish and sightsee.The pool was clean and the area around it very nice.I only have one suggestion,maybe some towel hooks in the bathroom. A minor issue.

Our site was not clean when we arrived. Awful dog poop we had to clean up from prior people. It's a great place, just slipped on this stay.

Was great, very clean. Couldn't understand the reasoning behind the fire ban.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The fire ban is due to the extreme dry conditions and the inability of many campers to be careful with their fires. We find that a great number of campers do not put their fires completely out. When the county places a fire ban, we follow suit and institute one here.

I was in a cabin; friends at two trailer spots. Fire pits, concrete pads and furniture at trailers were very nice. Cabin sparse, quite rustic, little counter space (particularly in bath/kitchen. Adequate but marginal.

This was the third time we stayed at Carbondale and we had a great time and will be back next year

This might be one of the nicer KOA's I have stayed at.

We needed a place to stay last minute an they accommodated us. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are new and very clean.

Excellent facility and friendly staff ..

The place itself is gorgeous, but when people are running through your campsite, no one else picks up their dog waste and the bathroom shower facilities are not enough for this zero sewer campground. It's hard to recommend. Lastly I'm not sure why laundry closes at 7 but the office in which it is in closes at 8. The front desk gentleman is super friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain & clean our grounds daily, so to find dog waste in the park is not the case. We would LOVE to have sewer at each site & a larger bath house facility; however, we are regulated by Pitkin County & they restrict the sewer & the size of the bathrooms. We do have a dump station. Our laundry closes at 8pm with the office, we ask that all loads are in no later than 7pm, sorry for the mix up.

Great KOA, very well maintained. Clean and green. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bathhouse is in excellent condition and the wifi works well.
Jul 14, 2017
This was my 1st stay at a KOA & it was very nice! I had a tent space at the farthest end of the camp which is the most private from all sights. Great bath house & nice hot shower. Nice river sound. The cows mooing in he evening was pleasant. However it sits right next a busy highway & that was quite annoying; for this reason it gets a 4 star. I will go back! Very nice office personnel as well!

Very clean and well kept. Staff very friendly, polite and helpful.

Nice campground by the river. Clean and very friendly staff. Easy access to Glenwood Springs. Have a 40 foot 5th wheel and hey have several sites that can accommodate. We have also stayed in the cabins and so have our friends and they are very clean and well kept up.

Everything was clean and manicured. Lots of activities for two little girls. It was our first experience at a KOA. I cannot imagine all KOA's being as awesome as this one was with very friendly helpful staff. Great experience!!!

This campground is a heresy place to stay. Everything is clean and the staff is friendly. However, other guests leave trash onsite and sometimes even pieces of metal on the ground. I got a punctured tire.
Jul 12, 2017
Overall this cabin was nice and spacious for our family and a great stay. Newly remodeled, kitchen was a nice plus. The only negatives for us was it was warm in the cabin during the day. Ceiling fans would be a plus, the lighting in the kitchen could be better, and the mattress on the queen bed in the "master" was very uncomfortable. If not a new mattress, a foam pad on the mattress would help.

Great place to stay right on the river very clean and well maintained would definitely stay here again
Jul 11, 2017
Everything was better than I expected and my family and I had a wonderful time! We had a cabin that was comfortable and fully furnished for the five of us right along the Crystal River. Can't say enough, great location, great hospitality, and a great time!

Clean, well maintained, great site!!
Jul 11, 2017
Great location. Only drawback is that grounds roads are a bit dusty-laying down gravel would help.
Jul 11, 2017
Staff is friendly and helpful

Friendly ,courteous and accomodating staff. Well maintained property. Conctrete pads are a great feature.

We had the perfect campsite! Plan on coming back with familiy and friends!!

Beautiful park, Well run, Friendly, Great location.

The Crystal River KOA is in a beautiful location! The pool is nothing special, only 3 feet deep all around. The only negative about the place was the fact that they have one bath house, with only 2 toilets and 2 showers, for the entire campground. Sometimes it was a long wait for the shower.
Jul 10, 2017
Beautiful KOA!
Jul 10, 2017
One of the best campground. Very clean and very well kept. Beautiful site with the river running by. Will be back

Amazing
Jul 09, 2017
Great staff, great dog park, beautiful sites on the Crystal River. Constant upgrades noticed. Love this KOA in the Crystal Valley.
Jul 09, 2017
This camp ground was fantastic. One could tell that they were trying to think of everything from a fenced in grassy area for dogs to play to the little touches inside our cabin. The linens were clean and the kitchen was well stocked with the basics. Even provide a brand new sponge for washing dishes to their guests along with detergent. That was impressive. We will definitely return!
Jul 09, 2017
Great tent spot on the Crystal River. Clean showers. Shade. Fenced dog play area. Ice cream. Bike trail to Carbondale. Best KOA and run by the nicest folks.

Everything was very good. The staff was fantastic. A few suggestions, 1- when customers are checking in, it would be nice if the staff spoke on the importance of the 5 mile an hour speed limit. Anything over that creates alot of dust flying from the roads within the camp ground. Also with the traffic on hyw 133 , a bigger entrance sign would make finding the entrance much easier,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments! We will continue to mention the 5 mph speed limit throughout the park and we would love to increase the size of our entry signs as well, unfortunately, Pitkin county will not allow such changes. Thanks again and come back to see us again!

Great tent sites, right next to the river. Bathrooms are great as well! A very nice area!

We LOVED this KOA. Cabin was perfect. Access to fishing on the Crystal made my husband very, very happy! Lovely spot.
