Site 500 was great Set off by itself Great river view Easy walk down to water Great customer service Did not lie how there was no service but it was nice there was a phone offered just wish that was mentioned on web cause I left two teen boys st home Don't think ppl who stay there should have to pay to use golf course or anything It's lumpy and outdated

Perfect! Everything was clean and as promised. The activities especially the hayride and crafts were fun for my daughter. The staff was always friendly helpful. We will be back!!

Tent site 500 is a peaceful & secluded location. Waking up to the sounds of the Arkansas river is a great way to start each day. The campgrounds provided all the amenities needed for a great week of exploring Colorado. Becky reconmended the Owl Creek Pass on one of our excursions. The 4WD adventure was the highlight of our week. Thanks for everything.

Great location, quiet, near the river. Each site was similar, but very DUSTY.

Clean facilities, friendly people and a great location. I loved that the tent sites were mostly located along the river and didn’t really have any road noise as a result.

A little misleading to state wifi is available when it only works if you are 3ft from the reception area. Bathrooms in urgent need of an upgrade. Least favourite KOA.

It was a beautiful park, a little tight spaces for tents but we got lucky ours wasn't too bad and we had a little shade. Loved hearing the river running! I have stayed at alot of koa's and most of them the bathrooms were spotless but i cant say that abput this one. Was kinda dissapointed with bathrooms. But everyone in the office was very friendly!

The location of this campground is great. It’s right along the river. The staff were very friendly. The reason I didn’t give it a 5 is because the bathrooms were very outdated and the tent campsites need more shade. It was extremely hot at our site. So much so that we had to leave for the majority of the day. A few trees would really help.

Staying at the tent sites was a great experience! With the river just beyond the tree line, you could listen to the rushing of the waters which I found very soothing while laying in my tent or just sitting by the fire. I really enjoyed the site's views, with the mountains nearby to complement the river. It's truly a nature lovers site to visit.

Is there something beyond 5 stars? Amazing tent site! We had 503 it could not have been more perfect! Staff was super friendly and welcoming. The grounds themselves had great amenities. Everything was always clean and well kept. Most memorable family camping trip ever! We will be registering soon for one of themed weekends soon. You have customers for life!

We make it a point to visit this KOA every summer. We love that it's always clean and beautiful and that it is always the same! It is located in a beautiful little slice of Chaffee County and we highly recommend it to anyone. River, shade, pool, clean facilities, friendly people!

Great location. Good bathrooms.
Aug 02, 2017
We enjoyed our tent site on the bank of the grass, but nicely smoothed bank of sandy not rocky firm ground. Bathroom could have been a little cleaner...pool looked inviting, but didn't have time for a swim...also a nice playground and hayride. Looked like guests were enjoying themselves.

nice little spot on the Arkansas river. Nothing fancy but the staff is friendly and will help you out with anything needed. We stayed a week and had a blast in the area.

The grill for my campsite was great. The grill for my brothers site that was right next to mine was not. It rained hard but even in our tents we had a good time!

We enjoyed the new tent sites near the river, very comfortable and lovely views. It was nice to be away from the campers yet have the KOA conveniences

We had a great time! The kids loved the playground and pool. It was nice being right by the river

This is a great little campground right on the Arkansas River. We've stayed here several times and will return again. It's great to crawl into your tent at night and hear the pleasant sound of a rushing stream. It's always been quiet here. We've never had to put up with loud drunks, like we have to put up with at so many state and national parks now. Many thanks, guys!

Pretty awesome 4th of July. Every year for the past 4 years we stay in KOA Cotopaxi. Love how this campground enforces quiet hours but not nevessarily how its approached towards children. Overall will continue to stay here.

Great place to camp as a family! Fun activities and a warm pool, beautiful setting. Wished they had a place to keep dogs as someone always had to stay back. Could use some updating around the pavilion area.

The campsites "fire pit" was broken and unusable. The tent site space is tiny and it backs up to some trees that has the river on the other side, you could barely see it. They do have some really nice sites, but ours definitely was not one of them. No view of the mountains as they claim.

Campground is nice and clean and staff are great. It was nice listening to the river each night. I personally would like more seclusion for the tent sites. I didn't like being right on top of each other.
Jun 22, 2017
The campground was a nice, quiet location but our camping spot had zero shade and was very hot during the day. The bathrooms were often very dirty and the tent pads were gravel and not very comfortable to sleep on. The staff was very friendly and the campground provided everything you needed but I will probably never return to this location.

Loved being by the river. Friendly staff who offered to move us to a campsite close to my Godparents. Didn't have AC in the cabins-- hot during the day, but ice and cool in the evening, perfect for sleeping. Clean bathrooms and lots of fun stuff for kids including a pool. My husband and I went for a run across the street on some trails (1 mile loop) great workout. Definitely would stay again.
