Had a great time at your campground. Would recommend It highly. Hard time with altitude but other than that nice views and sunsets are wonderful
Jul 20, 2018
The Host are exceptional. I use tent camping sites and for a chance to camp at 10,000 feet in this scenic location near Cripple Creek (and its casinos), and with nearby toilets and showers, this KOA offers a rare opportunity. The "primitive" tent sites are truly "backwoods" and may require a tad of off-road vehicle use. This is a rare KOA camping opportunity.

This is our second year coming and we loved it every one was friendly and it just felt like coming home to family

Great hosts, sites are a little cramped for 40 foot campers

Excellent Hosts, friendly atmosphere, beautiful property.

Everything was great, the location was wonderful and the service from the staff was even better! The facilities were great and super clean. They had a bunch of games we were able to borrow for the day. The only criticism I could give would be that the deluxe tent sites with electricity were out in the wide open and it was really windy. Some trees or a wall of some sort would have been nice to hel

I liked the campground but my husband has asthma & had trouble breathing due to the altitude.

A little isolated but very nice and quiet. The view was spectacular!

Needs a better parking system. There was absolutely not enough room to park in the camp spots.

We were behind the times. Being surrounded by motorhomes, travel trailers and 5th wheels we felt low. I didn't like the sink faucets, they kept shutting off. The bathroom was way too small for that size of RV Park. The scenery was great. There was a fanastic view from our campsite. Thanks for putting us up there. Someone had a generator or something on and I had to use ear plugs to try to slee

Altitude and the drive up are the only negatives.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You don't want to take the altitude for granted. It makes some folks really sick! Thanks for the review!

Sites need some work leveled and more gravel

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Agreed! It's an ongoing job...

Did you notice the view from your preferred top site during your 2 night stay?

Loved visiting the Molly Kathleen Mine while staying in Cripple Creek. The staff at the KOA camp was very friendly, and the amenities were ample! Clean store and facilities and plenty for the kids to do. Our site was well kept and located close the a playground for our children.

The facility was well taken care of and tidy. One thing to note though... if you are staying in the tent sites that are in the trees (they are lovely!) it is a VERY far walk to the bathroom.

Had a good time, staff friendly and the grounds were well kept. I only wish there was more area to hike around on.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most hikes are a few miles drive away.
Jul 16, 2018
Roads and sites too narrow and angled wrong.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our sites are adequate for most campers, although roads are certainly narrow. Limited options when you're built on a hill. Traffic flow is one way, and our sites are angled for that. Perhaps you went the wrong way? Unfortunate that is all you can comment on as we have a lot to offer around camping, views, and area tourist attractions... and we pride ourselves on welcoming our campers as guests.

The wifi was terrible. Also, the whole camp lost power for several hours. In the future, recommend the staff inform campers of the situation (I noticed everyone fooling around with the shore cords because they didn't know).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review. Unfortunately our options on wifi service are limited; we have the best we can get. I informed everyone I could of the power outage, however felt my time was better spent trying to fix it.
Jul 16, 2018
No Cell phone Service at all, No wifi service that works at all, We left same day we arrived even though we paid for 2 nights. We have kids and have to have at least texting. The site says wifi but it does not work at all. Manager warned me wifi was not great and may not work at check-in. They should not advertise wifi when they know it does not work. Very disappointed waste of gas and lodging fee

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wifi does work, just with very limited service because we are remotely located. We are always available to help you get a connection if you are challenged. We are a campground... we're good for camping. Curious to know why your reservation was for 2 adults, no kids...
Jul 16, 2018
I had 2 nights in the tent area - with electricity and it was great, from registration to help with hiking and other resources. Thank you

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No... Thank YOU!

Beautiful views. I wasn't happy with the site layout. As soon as you step out of your RV there's a severe slope. This applies to most of the sites for RVs. I compliment the staff for going around the campground and closing RV windows when it started to rain. Very clean and neat campground. The staff was friendly and courteous. I do plan on staying at the KOA again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! I'm working on widening RV pads on the most sloped sites, but will take some time to get em all up to snuff. Please give us a call when you next book and we'll see if we can get you into a more level site!

I had an awesome peaceful relaxed stay . If it wasn't for work I could stay there another month ����
Jul 15, 2018
Nice and friendly staff. The RV locations could stand to be a bit wider. The slope on the hills is quite steep.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Working on widening pads to help with the slope on the step off. You unfortunately had the MOST sloped site... I hope to build a deck on that one since it is such a large hill. On the plus side, I hope you enjoyed the view from that top site.
Jul 15, 2018
Nice place to stay. The only draw back was no phone service ( cell ) and weak or no wi-fi signal

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! AT&T apparently has no towers nearby, so unfortunately there is literally no cell service with that provider. We're not real happy with the wifi service either, but it is the best we can get at this remote location (and we share the same connection... and the slowness...).

Campsite not very level. No where level for picnic table or lawn chairs. Otherwise campground clean and quiet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Since we're on a hill, level ground is hard to come by. Working on table pads and widening RV pads, but it's an ongoing venture. Glad you were able to enjoy the beauty and quiet in spite of the hill!
Jul 14, 2018
Lovely campground with lovely views. The owners are very accommodating. Everything is clean and tidy. We love the little covered picnic area in the tent sites. My one suggestion is to increase the size of the area where the tent is to be pitched. We had trouble fitting ours on the square. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the great review, and feedback. I've expanded 3 of our 6 deluxe tent pads to 12'x16' this year. Working on the other three in the near future.

We enjoyed it so much re- booked for September 30, 2018.

We enjoyed the kids play room and the play grounds. The view is great. We had a spot closer to the top of the camp ground. Only issue is sewer hook up seemed to be fighting gravity.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you and the kids enjoyed it. Will take a look at that site hookup.

The campground, highest in the world, was a fantastic venture. The place was beautiful, a great get away!

Glad you were able to enjoy it in spite of the drought and fire ban!

My family enjoyed the secluded tent sites away from the RVs. The showers and bathrooms were top notch. Close to Mueller State Park with it’s great trails and the old Vindicator Gold mine with its trails. Great location.

I checked out without meeting the hosts, but they communicated with me the next day while I was it of cell phone range because they were concerned about me. I let another tenter take my site upon arrival and since they saw “my” tent but not me, they were worried. Above and beyond!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad it was a site swap instead of something bad. Thanks for the review!

Positive: Staff is very friendly & grounds are very clean. Negative: Campsite are very close together, ground outside your camper can be very unlevel. Step out of camper & ground has a severe downhill grade. Hard to set up outdoor chairs, grills, etc. Can be dangerous for people with balance issues, older pets. Had to change spots and was charged one time $5 pet fee twice. Caught it. Very $$$.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Most of our sites are about 30 feet apart, which is wider than many campgrounds. Some of our sites do unfortunately have quite a slope. I have begun working to address that, but will take some time to get them all. Yes, we made a mistake by not deleting a $5 fee that is automatically charged with all new reservations, which we made to try to accommodate you. I apologize.

This is by far our favorite KOA. The 360 view of the alpine valley can’t be beat, the temperatures are cool, and there is always a breeze. The facilities are top notch . Camp hosts Terri and Derek and their family treat campers like family. The pancake breakfast and free Smores( fire ban permitting) are a wonderful touch. We came here planning to stay 2 nights and stayed 2 weeks! We will return!
