We stayed during the Haunted Halloween Weekend. The effort put forth by the staff was fantastic! The Halloween activities were fun, I still have purple fingers from the tie-dye craft, the potluck was delicious! Stayed in our favorite spot, 74. Fantastic weekend!!

We did not have a reservation, When we pulled in, the office was closed with a sign posted, person needing to check us in was at her #2 campsite and we could come there to see about a campsite. A lady came from the motel and advised she would let Shirley know we were there. We waited a few minutes and she arrived, checked us in. End of season, does not mean end of service.

We had a great time. We were in lot 71 which has a small view of the river and you can hear the water rolling across the rocks. It made for a very relaxing stay and put me right to sleep at night. The camp site is far from city life which is what we want when we are camping. The main facilities were clean and kept warm for showers. Everyone was friendly.

We have stayed at Cotopaxi KOA several times! Our trips to Colorado arenât complete unless weâve been here! It is by far our favorite campground to stay when visiting beautiful Colorado!!

The stay was just ok...although did like our site right next to the was a challenge to get to the river's edge....the site did not have sewer hook ups but maybe they are in the plans... It wasn't the same KOA that we are used to...we had to find out site our-self (no maps). The place could use a bit of a face lift! No internet or cell. I think I may rethink about staying again.

We stayed 1 night in a 32 foot Class C with our two dogs. We planned on staying 2 nights because we had stayed there 25 years ago and were very impressed. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed in perceived lack of maintenance and upkeep. Because the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, we hope that more attention will be given to the campground to match the ambiance of the area.

Great location, wonderful people, we loved it!

Although we were able to get into out sight, it was a little tight. There were boulders on the sides that made it tough to get into. We have a huge rig and a long bed truck. The tree in our sight needed to be trimmed as well. Had we been able to get over further(boulder made that impossible), it may not have mattered. However, we were honestly concerned about our camper with all the wind.

Great people, beautiful scenery, and I wanted right next to the river and that's where I was camped out!!! Close to salida and westcliffe which we visited.

Love the setting

Very nice in a deluxe site by the river. We have stayed in the past in a regular site, in which the spaces are too close together. It isn't easy to park a large camper in that area, but the deluxe site was very nice.

This KOA is clean and well taken care of but, most sites do not have river views because of trees. Then the river is quite a climb to get to from the campsites, not easy. It was okay, but we went so my husband could fish and I could enjoy sitting near the water.

Need to update and expand showers/restrooms

Our stay was SO MUCH FUN! Lots to do and Staff are fabulous! Thank you!!

Well maintained campground with beauty all around you. KOA team was friendly & helpful. My husband liked that he could fish the rivers right there and not have to drive to fish. I liked the trails right from the campground, short hikes but still nice. Offroad trails aren't too far away so we enjoyed taking our RZR on the trails. We will definitely go back to this KOA!!

No signal for cell service, no food at all within 15 miles and lot is very dark. If you plan on staying here, you need to bring some food and drinks if you check in after 6 when everything in the area shuts down.

We had so much fun! The tractor ride and ice cream social were great activities. The Kampground was clean and our campsite was lovely. We will definitely return!

We have stayed here many times over the years tent sites and as of late cabins. This campground is friendly clean and relaxing. Just the way camping should be

Strange office hours. Smoke alarm battery died and it "chirped"all night. No chair in cabin. Bath good and clean. WiFi so so, but right on river and view was great. Surroundings also great as we saw big Horn sheep in the area.

We had a deluxe site by the river. There was no sewer, but water and electric. That was fine as we were there two days and used the convenient dump station as we left. The concrete patio and fire pit were very nice, as was the sound of the river. There was a well stocked store and friendly staff. My only caution is that we could not get cell phone, TV, Internet or even radio. But a great stay!

Great location, campground was clean, pig roast event was fun and yummy. Loved that you could see so many stars at night.
