Cripple Creek KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

Aug 10, 2019
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

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

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

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!

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.

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!

Great place to stay with the Family.

Our family (who lives here) agrees!

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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed our mountain getaway!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On 7/27/19@10:15 AM YOU made YOURSELF an internet reservation for a water/electric site. Our web site is clear about our amenities. You called as you had no idea what day you reserved but then showed up early and we accommodated you. You stated no issue when you left. Counter to policy we refunded 1 of the 2 days you checked out early. In spite of your perceived entitlement, policies still apply.

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
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!

Narrow and short gravel pads. Wi-Fi unusable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yer 58' site was too short for your 27' 5th wheel? We're on the side of a hill, so city-type super sites are not an option here. We are a remote campground and internet service is the best we can get in the mountains. Internally, service does slow down considerably when we are full. If you want/need city amenities, that's not what we're about so you are advised NOT to visit our mountain getaway.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Excellent!

Enjoyed it very much. Terri was very helpful.

Very clean facility, friendly staff, well laid out, and gorgeous views. The showers and restrooms were very clean. Had a nice little shop to buy ice or things you might need without having to drive to town. Well worth the drive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are off the beaten path, which means a quiet mountain escape. Glad you felt it was worth the drive! Thank you for the great review!

The water pressure is very low. The staff is wonderful. Although the pad sites, which r gravel are flat, the remainder of the site is so steep your picnic tables & chairs have to sit at an angle . The sites are really tight & there is not a view from most of the sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! Would have been good to know about your water pressure concern while you were onsite so we perhaps could have done something about it. I'll look into it now. We are built on the side of a hill so flat space is at a premium. Since we are on a hill, most sites do have a good view, although when full one can't see the entire horizon from the middle sites.
Jul 27, 2019
Cripple Creek KOA is a well-maintained campground near the historic mining towns of Victor and Cripple Creek. It is easy to get to on roads that are curvy but easily navigable by RVs and trailers. The sites are spacious and feature grass, picnic tables and fire rings. I would absolutely stay here again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! We're a long way from California, but hope you can stop in to see us again!

We stayed at a basic kabin during our stay. We really appreciated being able to enjoy the camping experience without having to haul a tent and other supplies around. I appreciated having access to the kamping kitchen, and campground was clean and well-maintained. We had such a pleasant, relaxing time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That is GREAT! I'm glad you were able to recharge.
Jul 26, 2019
The View, The Temps, The Quietness was just perfect in the middle of July. I would have given this lovely place 5 stars / 10 yet I did not use the entire place, never went into the store area (only to check in / out) never used the bathroom / shower area.. Yet I have to believe that those areas were as Clean and Well Looked after as our Beautiful Cabin. THANK YOU for the best part of our vacation

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank YOU for staying with us!

The owners were very helpful, knowledgeable, and personable. They provided us with great ideas on exploring the local area.

There is a great amount of real-life wild west history nearby. Glad you were able to experience it!

The folks who work there were awesome, friendly and helpful!! The dog park was big enough for our 3 dogs to play in. We really enjoyed our stay!!

Campsites are very small and uneven. Very hard to get camper out of campsite due to limited space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are built on the side of a hill. Our RV pads ARE level, although grassy areas are sloped (in a couple cases, significantly)... because we're on the side of a hill! Sorry you had trouble getting your 35' fifth wheel into our 55' long site; we've had 44' fifth wheels that have had no complaints. Site 122 is one of our narrower, but did you notice the view? CO Springs KOA may be a better fit.
Jul 24, 2019
Hard to get into sites close together and no way to get out of them with long trailer unless you pay for site in front or behind to back out.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

No way to get out unless you pay for another site? Are you still here? You certainly didn't book another site, so I guess that's a bit of an exaggeration, eh? Our sites aren't huge, but thousands of campers have had no trouble coming and going. By the way, if you book early you don't have to take the last site left for the weekend.
Jul 23, 2019
Great view and very nice sites. Location close to many things to do. We would definitely stay here again. We were in our 35 ft. 5th wheel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Love having our Texan ex-neighbors here. Hope you can make it back next year!

My favorite KOA in Colorado. The views and stargazing are amazing here! The people are super friendly. Place is very clean and well maintained. Free s'mores on Saturday nights and weekend pancake breakfast for a few dollars. Convenient location for hiking, history and casinos.
