Campground Reviews

Our stay was enjoyable. The site could use more bathroom facilities; however, at the time of our stay, we experienced no inconvenience.

Upon arrival we paid the $5 an hour check-in fee (2 hrs early), without complaint. Our campsite had a very steep incline, making it dangerous walking out of the RV. The 110 outlet wasn’t fixed after 4 days. No swimming pool, cable or activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Incline is the price of the awesome view. I checked the 120V outlet immediately; no problem, it is brand new. You would not swim with our mountain summer temps. Plenty to do, check our website. No cable, right, no svc at our remote locale. Early check in fees, like most campgrounds, right. Your complaints are all things that are clearly documented on our website, why did you choose to come?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the recommendation!

Campground is very nice. Great staff. $5 pet fee is charged for guests with pets, which is fine. we be have 2 small dogs and would never leave pet waste, but many people do. There is a lot of "dog" on the grassy areas that was not cleaned up by campers or campground???

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for complimenting our campground and staff! Re pet waste, unfortunately many dog owners are not as responsible as you, which is why we had to introduce the pet fee this year. Our staff spends a lot of time cleaning up after the irresponsible owners. It would be helpful to hear about these issues while you are here so we can attempt to remedy. Thank you for visiting, and hope you return!

We enjoyed the KOA at Cripple Creek. Wonderful amenities. We used their grill and outdoor kitchen which was stocked with cast iron skillets, dish soap, cook top , etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad you enjoyed it!
Aug 20, 2019
The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean. We enjoyed the Smores campfire and the pancake breakfest.
Aug 20, 2019
have stayed at this KOA several times in the past and have always been totally please with all accomodations. The owners and staff have always been willing to assist with all our requests and needs, We look forward to visiting this campground again in the future

This is a very well maintained campground. The views are spectacular. As others have noted, the sites are very short. Our 35 foot 5th wheel and long bed Ram would not fit in the site, but there is plenty of parking by the office which is not far off.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! Our approx 60' sites sometimes do not accommodate a long trailer and truck but as you noted, plenty of parking nearby. We have plans to add some big-rig sites, just a question of when it will be possible.

Esther had hip surgery and needed to be close to the shower and bathroom too help her movement she verified the need and was given verification we would be close and check in was told we weren’t even registered but were put on the last space from the facilities really bad treatment from the check in clerk!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I apologize for your negative experience. I see you booked a mid-row site on Jul 3 and were emailed a confirmation. You were reassigned to a top site the day before arrival which was likely the best we could do on Veteran's Rally weekend (busiest of the year) when all our sites are booked well in advance. Looking into your comment re bad treatment; that's not OK!

Great staff, cool breeze

Nice campground, no major complaints, but pick-up truck barely fit on our site & firepit was so close to the edge of the grass, practically had a slide out on top of it. Just saying, there's room for improvement.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the candid review! Our sites are 90's big-rig-sized. We have plans to add some larger sites, just a question of when we can pull the project together. Since we're built on a hillside, fire ring locations are sometimes a tradeoff between ideal location on the site and level ground where you can enjoy it. I took a look and I agree it is too close to the pad and I will be relocating it.

It is always awesome to stay here!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's always awesome to have awesome campers on bikes like you stay here!

Glad you seemed to have a relaxing time!

We had to $7.50 for arriving early????

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You didn't HAVE TO, that was YOUR decision! YOU chose to arrive 1-1/2 hours early so we had to redirect office and outdoor employees from their scheduled work to check you in and prep your site. You also used more than your share of services for the day. Instead of raising rates for everyone, we charged you an appropriate fee for your extra demand and usage. Sad that's all you care to review.

Very enjoyable

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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

After confirming with "the younger woman" and checking your registration record I see that your commentary is largely a fabrication. You tried to check in at ~10:40am. You heard a radio conversation that your reserved site was not ready but a site reserved by another camper was. You felt you were entitled to their site and were angry when told you had to wait for the one YOU had actually reserved.

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.

LOVE all the hummingbird action!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Intriguing critters, aren't they?
Aug 14, 2019
Nice newer facility had everything we needed including a view!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Excellent! Our campground is not new (built in early 90s) but we work hard to keep up with maintenance. Glad it felt new to you!

Aug 13, 2019
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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'll see you next time!
Aug 12, 2019
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.

Super nice and clean. Will be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Excellent; thank you!
