Cotopaxi Campground Store

Our store hours--Memorial Day through Labor Day--are 7am to 9 pm. Our off season hours are 9-11 am and 3-5 pm. Our store has many souvenirs, pottery right on the campground and a variety of frozen, canned and dried goods. We also have  ice cream and plenty of cool drinks. Please stop in and browse our selection!

Fishing policy

Private fishing is available throughout the campground on the Arkansas River. Public land border us to the east and west. You can fish with live bait, lures, flies or salmon eggs. Children under 16 do not need a license.

Firewood policy

We have firewood available for $5/bundle and fire starters for $.75 each. Please do not use downed wood from the property or river to burn. Much of the wood by the river contributes to habitat for the fish and the insects. No cutting of trees or shrubs in the campground or surrounding public lands.

Our Camp Store

A truly amazing store with a wide variety of handmade, local and unique gifts and souvenirs. We have groceries, household items, pool toys, sundries and RV, fishing and camping supplies. Wood and ice are also available.

Pool Hours

Our Pool is open Memorial Day to Labor Day from 10 am to 9 pm. Please bring your own towels.

Visitor Policy

Visitors are allowed with a $5/person and $5/vehicle fee. We have limited visitor parking in the campground, so please make arrangements during your reservation. If visitors are not "set up" at check in and arrive without notice they are charged the day use fee of $10/person and $5/ vehicle. The Arkansas River is a popular amenity spring, summer and fall. To limit overuse of our campground, property and private riverfront, we strictly enforce vehicle passes. When you arrive you will be given a pass. Keep the pass displayed on your mirror for you entire stay.

Quiet Hours

Quiet hours are from 9 pm to 7 am.

Meet Your Hosts

The Burnham Family

Lots of our campers have known us for years. When the same customers come back, something is being done right.

In May of 1999, James and Amy Burnham made the decision to have a child. This decision became a catalyst for them to purchase a KOA campground and work from their home. At the time, Jim was an attorney, and Amy was a landscape architect - stressful careers in a fast-paced corporate world. With this particular job change, both of them could now raise a family and build relationships at the same time.

The campground is located on the river, surrounded by vast mountains, and an ideal place for a weekend away from home. Each and every customer is important to James and Amy, and their KOA is often host to reunions, parties, and other large gatherings. "A lot of our customers have known us for years," said Amy. "When the same customers keep coming back, something is being done right." As a family-oriented campground, James and Amy focus on showing their campers a fun, safe experience while treating each of them like their own family.

In her free time, Amy likes to do crafts; she enjoys working on a pottery wheel and with ceramics. James is a hunter and owner of a new Harley Davidson Fat-boy Low. They spend their winters catching up on family time with their son Thunder, and they all love to ski.
