Campground Reviews

Sep 02, 2017
If you want to camp on the side of a steep grade, in a too-narrow site, have your picnic table at an angle where your can of soda will slide off the table, and where you will fall out your front door if you don't hang-on... then THIS is the campground for you. If Cripple Creek wants to claim fame as being the "worlds highest campground" they could at least provide more accommodating sites.

We have a FEW sites that have significantly sloped yards, however you were in site 147 which is not one of them. As a new owner this year, leveling out the sloped sites is one of the top items on my to-do list. Unfortunate that you neglected to look up from your site long enough to take in the breathtaking beauty or friendly folks around you.

Beaitiful place. Friendly syaff. Bathrooms and showers very clean.

We're glad you enjoyed Colorado's mountain beauty!

Sites too narrow and not long enough for our 40' Class A plus toad. Because of slope away from gravel pad, unsafe at motorcoach steps. No cable. Terrible WiFi (good signal strength, but no bandwidth). No AT&T cell coverage. One channel OTA TV. Left after 2 nights of a planned 4 night stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Some of our sites are too sloped and I am working on addressing that. Also have plans to add some new sites that are better suited for big rigs. Per your other complaints... well, we are a remote campground in the beautiful, pristine mountains of central Colorado. We offer camping and outdoor activities and don't have an interest in ruining our outdoor experience with city hotel amenities.

My wife died while staying here. They told me I could stay as long as I needed to take care of things even though they had a fully booked Veterans group coming in that weekend. They would move their personal trailer if needed so I could stay. This was also the week of the "eclipse" so it would have been almost impossible to find another site close by. They fed me and kept asking me if I was OK.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Wish we could have done more to help.

Was 7 miles from town, no cell service, and limited internet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Can't argue with that... except that we're 5 miles from town, and Verizon cell service is 4G with strong signal. It's beautiful up here, isn't it?

Campground was very busy while we were there so there were few empty FHU spaces. Our space sloped right out the camper door making entry and exit a tall step. Parking was tight for us. Other than this I cannot find anything to complain about here. Everything worked as advertised, even the Wi-Wi worked fairly well for such a busy place. Sketchy AT&T signal, limited TV.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review! Working on addressing the sloping sites and adding some new big-rig friendly sites. Not much we can do about internet service and AT&T cell service up here, but continue to look for opportunities to improve.

The campground was very clean and well organized. All RV sites were pull through - - a nice feature. The price per night was right, although I was a little put out when told I would need to pay an extra $10 fee for "Early Check-In"; we checked in at 12:55 PM and hadn't been told about this fee. The camp needs a 2nd set of bathrooms; i.e. none available from 11:00 AM to @ 2:00 PM for cleaning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to review! Our 3pm check-in time is stated on every page of our website, repeated inline on the General Info tab where there is also statement of a fee for early check-in, and is also stated in the email reservation confirmation you received. Early check-in disrupts the morning cleanup routine, thus the charge. Bathrooms close no earlier than noon, usually for 1 hr

We've stayed at a lot of KOA's and this one was our favorite. Very clean facilities and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful area in the mountains. Will definitely come back to this location in the future!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll work hard to keep it your favorite, although I suspect the views are the most important part.
Aug 29, 2017
We really like your campground and will definitely be staying again soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking forward to it!

Excellent!

There was nothing wrong with the park. The owners when out of there way to help me stay one more night at the last minute,it's just a long way to the park and the altitude killed me.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry to hear the altitude was a problem. Unfortunately, some people are seriously affected.

Very clean campground. very nice reception office. The Log cabin really adds to the Colorado atmosphere when checking in. Liked the small store area and gift shop.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed it!
Aug 27, 2017
Unfortunately it rained off and on so we didn't do as many outdoor activities that we would have liked. On the plus side, the office had plenty of movies to keep our grandson busy. It is a very well kept KOA and the office personal are very nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had an enjoyable stay in spite of the weather. We never know what mother nature will bring us... sun to hail to rain to sun is a typical day!

Only one shower facilities on site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've seen that our facilities meet the demand of our typical reservations. We do have plans to expand, and are considering additional bathroom facilities in that context. Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback!
Aug 25, 2017
the campground is great for those who have trailers,i was tent site t-7 if i remember,too many sharp rocks to drive into along with small trees that have been cut at sharp angles,tire getter,fire pit worn out,picnic tble half rotten,tent site not flat,greatplace if i had a trailer

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the candid feedback! Primitive tent site leveling is on the top of my maintenance list. I'll see what I can do about the rocky roads as well.
Aug 24, 2017
The best campground we have stayed at hands down. The only recommendation I have is upgrade the Wifi because cellphone coverage is very limited.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words! I am continually seeking better internet service, but don't have options at this time due to our remote location.
Aug 24, 2017
Nice setting. Only thing that was inconvenient was the time the showers and bathrooms were closed for cleaning. They only had one bathhouse

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do our best to minimize the time our bathrooms are closed, but current demand doesn't necessitate additional facilities. We are considering adding bathrooms as we expand though. Thanks for the review!
Aug 24, 2017
Everyone there was very friendly and helpful look forward to our next visit! Such a beautiful area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you appreciate our views too!

This is our GO TO KOA!! Facility is ALWAYS clean, well stocked, accommodating. Camp kitchen is awesome: cast iron pans, CLOTH towels/wash rags, dish soap, cleaning/scrubbing sponges, drying rack, & electric STOVE!!! Fun things for kids (peddle cars, playground, etc.). PRISTINE & very quiet location!! Owners Deric and Terri are amazing. You won't regret a stay at this KOA.

I was put in a spot that when set up my entry was so steep we had a very hard time getting in and out of our unit. The utility connections did not allow us much leeway to position ourselves to get near to the waste receptacle. Even though I booked this stay several months in advance and asked for a 50 amp hookup I was put in a 30 amp and told It was basically my tough luck and could not be moved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On Dec 10, 2016 you booked a 30 amp site yourself (online) for Veteran's Rally weekend and were sent an email confirmation clearly highlighting that fact. The mistake was yours alone. Under these circumstances, we gladly accommodate site changes but when you showed up on the single busiest weekend of the year expecting a change, we simply did not have any options for you.
Aug 22, 2017
This was my 1st stay in one of the cabins and I must say it was a great experience, very clean and enjoyable time. The staff and owners are 1st classs in my book

Enjoyed the experience. Great Hosts.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for coming to visit!
Aug 22, 2017
It served our purpose. We're actually more used to camping in National Forest campgrounds, so a KOA felt a bit crowded. Facilities were great. Showers and bath were spotless. Staff was polite and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The campground was built before today's big rigs, so some of the sites are kind of tight. We do have plans to add some new sites very soon, so hope you check back in a year or two. :) Thanks for taking the time to review!
Aug 22, 2017
BEAUTIFUL VIEWS... VERY NICE CAMP SITES... NEW TO THE RV WORLD HOWEVER EVERYTHING WAS VERY CLEAN,,,MAINTAINED .. DEFINITELY WILL RETURN! :)

The location was so relaxing we had no thoughts of going to a casino. All of our camping neighbors, in addition to several thousand others, rode their motorcycles to Cripple Creek for a rally to honor our disabled veterans. Great people

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was my first Veteran's Rally, and what a great way to honor our heroes!

Had a good time. Able to use a little bit bigger fire pit so all of the campers we were with could sit around and enjoy the evening. Thanks again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for getting the community fire going!

Les emplacements pour tentes seules ne sont pas vraiment des emplacements : tres éloignés des sanitaires, sol rocailleux et en pente. Difficile d'accès en voiture.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are new owners this season, and agree that some of the primitive tent sites are unacceptably sloped. Will be addressing that before next season. However, we also believe that primitive tent camping should be primitive, and have no intent to develop the sites further.

We love Cripple Creek and have stayed at this KOA many times in the past. We love the location, the view, and the serenity. However, this time we had no phone service or tv. They advertise wifi, but it was extremely unreliable. We were parked about 50 ft. From the office but could rarely get it to work. Being senior citizens we felt extremely isolated. We won't be here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, our remote location limits our options on internet service providers, and terrestrial satellite is the only viable option. Fortunately, most folks see it as a great opportunity to reconnect with the beautiful outdoors... you know, camping. This is the same service that's been in place for years, so I'm surprised it is only an issue as of your latest stay.

Staff Very Friendly, very clean facilities, Look forward to returning.

Nice quiet place. Be aware it is at 10,000 plus feet so it WILL have an effect on your breathing

Breathe deeply, drink LOTS of water.
