Cripple Creek KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

Small tight spots. Not conducive to sitting outside. Showers are older style but had great water pressure and lots of hot water. We arrived early and even though the spot we ended up being assigned was empty we had to wait. A neighbor was allowed early arrival at $5/hr. He paid $7.50. Friendly staff except for the younger woman who originally rejected us. If offered we would have paid for early

I must have good timing, got pancakes for breakfast! Nice KOA and it looks like they are doing a lot of work on it. It's on a hillside but they've done a pretty good job of making level sites to park in. It's a little tight getting in and out of the sites, but if you're careful you can do it. Staff is friendly and helpful, wifi is a little iffy if you know what I mean.

nice place - but with no access to AT &T cell phones it put us at a bad situation in case of an emergency at home

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately there just isn't an AT&T tower accessible from our location. Thanks for not holding that against us!

a water hose hookup at dump station should be a must in my opinion. We had to put water in our tank and use it for black tank dump. Also lot of enforced rules compared to other KOA’s example. $5 hour for every hour early. All other KOAs I’ve been to would let you go in as long as site was vacant.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our dump station includes a water hose to clean out your sewer hose but not for flushing your tank. There is a cost to our operations related to accommodating early arrivals and I can say with certainty that a majority of KOAs do enforce early check-in fees.

Friendly staff. Clean. Quiet. Central to many attractions. Cool, relief from Texas heat.

We have always enjoyed our visits to the Cripple Creek KOA, this time was no different; wish we could have stayed longer!

We'll see you next time!

Showers were nice. The spots were small probably to maximize space but I would have liked to have a little more flat parking for my rug and setting lawn chairs around together instead of in line. to cramped.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We wish some of our site picnic areas were flatter too. Our sites are approx 30'x60', which is how they built em in the early 90's. Being built on the side of a hill, you can't really expand on the flat space. On the plus side, it makes for great natural bleachers to enjoy the sunset across the valley.

Great two-night stay in a primitive tent site (T5). Hosts Deric and Terri continue to be the most hospitable and friendly of all. Our second consecutive annual stay in AUG; we might have a tradition brewing...(wink) Cleanest and most sanitary restrooms when I visit, I hate not cleaning up after myself when I leave... Ask my wife how much she has to motivate me to clean up after myself: LOL

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking forward to next August!

This KOA is a must stop for us. Deric and Terri are the best! This stOp was our last in CO and will be our first when we return next summer

Safe trip home, and see you two next year!

Just two nights in a primitive tent space... loved it. The owners' (Deric and Terri) attention to detail here, their desire to treat their kampers as they would like to be treated, is unsurpassed. It remains the standard to which we hold all our KOA experiences. Restrooms are always clean and their showers with the extension hoses should be required installs at all KOA sites. You'll see us mor

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for taking the time to post a comprehensive review. Glad our site and staff are to your liking! We strive to treat our campers as guests in our home, so happy to see we hit it on the head sometimes. Hope to see you when you make it to this part of the country again!

Awesome, thank you!

One of the best run KOA's out there. It has great facilities for kids and plenty to do for adults including a challenging hike on the peak behind the campground (wear gloves, you will thank me) and the facility is well kept and clean.

At time of making reservations on phone I was not informed we would not have cable, wifi that was consistent, and sewer hook up. My prescription inhaler ran out requiring us to leave early. We requested a refund for the time or part of the time not used. They denied the request because too many campers used that excuse too much. My question. Why do so many leave early and ask for refunds.
Aug 07, 2019
My husband and I both agreed that this was our favorite camp spot in Colorado. The view is amazing and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Campground was very clean. Our kids enjoyed the playground, train and playhouse. We also rented the kid tricycles and our our 4 yr old to 14yr old had fun riding them. My husband and I will be returning next month for our anniversary.

We absolutely loved the Cripple Creek KOA! Not only is it beautiful, but everyone there was so very nice and helpful! Don't go there expecting to spend a lot of time on the internet....as our AT&T phones only worked on the campground wifi. The wifi was sufficient to do the stuff we needed to do...but it is not a strong signal...but hey....it is a beautiful place with awesome weather! Loved it!

In town for the Mollie Kathleen mine tour and the Cripple Creek railroad. This KOA was great! Space parking area is a good size, roadways to access them are a little tight for larger units to maneuver. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be back!

See you next time!

Loved everything about this camp. Super friendly staff, sites and grounds are clean and well maintained. Loved the altitude and cool weather. Clean restrooms and many amenities. And of course waking up to the Mountain View was refreshing. Nice hiking path up the mountain the camp is situated on. Enjoyed a side trip into nearby Victor and surrounding towns along winding scenic roads. 5 stars!

Glad you enjoyed our mountain getaway!

Beautiful location!! Campsites and cabins were well maintained. Bathroom facilities were immaculate. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Perfect place to stay with your pets. One of the nicest KOAs in the USA and Canada.
Aug 06, 2019
All went well

Narrow and short gravel pads. Wi-Fi unusable.
Aug 06, 2019
What a beautiful location! Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location to enjoy the mountains, but still have a quick drive to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods, etc. Extremely nice family running the campground. By far the best KOA we have stayed at yet!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! As you noticed, we are a pretty good base area to explore the region, halfway between Garden of the Gods/Pike's Peak and Royal Gorge. Lots of regional interests nearby! We really try to be family accommodating, so glad to hear your family had such a great time!

It is located on the side of a hill. Over looking the medow where the supposed location was. All the activities where several miles away. Closest was Cripple Creek town and the mine. We went, we saw, we won't be going back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not really clear what you expected or what you mean by "supposed location". We are located exactly where we claim to be.

Very helpful staff. Extremely knowledgeable. The best sunsets-hands down. Plus, it's about 10 degrees cooler than the Springs. Perfect for our July stay.

Great KOA to stay at. Clean with pull thru. We had full hook up which we had no issues with. Wifi available but was a bit spotty as we had some reason and weather the one night. Staff was very knowledgeable and polite. Highly recommend this KOA.

We just completed our second annual stay in the month of AUG ... It appears we may a tradition going here... (grin) Weather was fine, nights were cool (to be expected at 10K-foot level), and evenings were quiet and so very peaceful and relaxing. Of the 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐞-𝐒 criteria we look for in any kampsite, (sanitation, security, and service)... Cripple Creek KOA is the ONLY campsite that we can confidently give 5 stars in every category without hesitation. * * * 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐲 measures are in place for intruders: they'll have to pack a lunch to cause any trouble here - the kampground isn't easy to get to or access without discovery; not to mention the rotating volunteer alert force of canines provided by the kampers themselves (grin). 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 is excellent: on this trip, I personally witnessed the complex accommodation of a family with a dog and toddler who had a tight budget for their stay. I left before the final agreement was reached, but I was able to say good morning the next day as I walked our dog past their kabin (wink). 𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 is the most attractive aspect of this KOA. We've only visited and stayed at a dozen or so ... we're not experts on RV camping and RV campsites in general, to be sure. With that said, I can say with sincere confidence that you'll probably never find a better/cleaner/more inviting restroom facility anywhere in the country... PERIOD. Showers have hoses to get to every sweaty and dirty crevice of the human body after a day of traveling or hiking the mountain behind the kampsite. I made it to the 3210m mark (10531 foot level - according to the Canon 7DMarkII GPS function) before my 71-year old legs complained enough to get me to stop. I did get to the boulder section at the top, but just didn't have the energy to work my way over the boulders to the summit... (sigh) * * * Any of you looking to get away from it all for a few days need to treat yourself to 𝐂𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐤 𝐊𝐎𝐀 just once in your life...? It's an experience you'll always recall with fondness OR get double your fresh air back... (wink) You can thank me later... * * * Tell Deric or Terri that Earl J *MauiBoy* sent you, show them your VKR card, and get 10% off your stay. . . (wink) LOL * * * CClear skies, light winds, and smooth roads... * * * "𝐁𝐨𝐫𝐧 𝐨𝐧 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐲 𝐈𝐬𝐥𝐞, 𝐇𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐰, 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐡 𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐚; 𝐀𝐥𝐨𝐡𝐚 𝐲'𝐚𝐥𝐥..." * * * Until that time. . .
