Campground Reviews

Aug 17, 2017
The male office person was rude when we asked if we could change spots (the one we were given was unacceptable). We were sleeping in our SUV, which he told us was not allowed by saying "this is not a parking lot" - the car next to us was doing the same, by the way. When packing up in the AM, the groundskeeper was watching us - the entire time - and it made us feel very uncomfortable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That person is no longer working with our campground, however crashing in your car is still not allowed on our tent sites, even if your neighbors are doing it too. As a rule, we happily facilitate a move to any other available site if you so choose.

We stay here once a year. The new owners don't seem to be that friendly maybe because they new. They don't deliver wood or ice like most other KOA's do. It's hard to carry those item up the hill to the higher sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry this was your experience as it is not the norm. We pride ourselves on being friendly and I personally deliver wood and ice every chance I get. I suppose you may have purchased when we had only one person working.

We loved it!! The horses were beautiful!!

Very clean. Beautiful setting.

Not really big rig friendly . Pads themselves were fairly level but very narrow for a trailer with big slides . The area where the picnic table was was very unlevel and you really had to be careful when you stepped out of the trailer . Some landscaping to level the entire spot would solve a lot off problems . Very quite except for dogs. We were in a 42 ft toyhauler , needed more room .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the candid feedback! We're considering adding some new big-rig sites in the near future. Site leveling is on the top of my list for off-season maintenance this year, so hope you can come back and enjoy the result. :)

It is very easy to say<. "Best"!!! ( And this is not to complain, because we didn´t need one:) ...except of a unusuable, perhaps dangerouse gas Grill. Registration promised to change it. Thanks for a nice time of Holiday!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words! I have repaired the grills on both deluxe cabin decks in the last couple days to address your concern.

Loved the area. Loved the new owners. Loved the experience of camping and exploring the area. My wife and I want to wish them the very best. Thank you for being so kind. See you next time.

beautiful area. helpful staff. only negative was that we rented movies from the campground store and found that the dvd player that was part of the tv didnt work and they wouldnt refund the money for the movies nor did they tell us the player didnt work.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I believe not refunding you was an oversight... we should have. My apologies! We have removed the DVD players from the deluxe cabins, as they have not functioned since we acquired the campground.

This KOA was very nice. The owners have done a fantastic job! They offer several games to use, have a great laundry room, showers and restrooms were nice and clean, the scenery couldn't have been better!

Great friendly people who work there, clean restroom.
Aug 14, 2017
Sight was good, was tight getting in and out (but we made it!). Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. A quarter machine in the laundry room would have been helpful since it is open 24 hours (if there was a quarter machine somewhere my apologies). Store had on hand supplies that were helpful to us so we did not have to drive to get them. Fenced in pet area was very nice.

Thank you!

We had a really relaxing weekend at Cripple Creek KOA. The facilities are clean (bathrooms and showers) and the campground itself is nicely situated off the main road enough that you cannot hear traffic and right up against the treeline. The hike up to "the knob" is fun and invigorating. The RV spaces are tight. The dirt roads between spaces need some work. All in all a very good experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! It was hard to keep up with the road washout during the summer monsoon at the beginning of August, but we have improved some of the drainage issues to reduce the water running in the roads. I'll continue to work on it!

Short weekend. Place has never looked this good. Friendly owners and staff.

Clean bathrooms and showers. Loved the camp kitchen which has a four burner stove and two sinks. We did the electric tent site, but if it's going to rain a lot get site 90 or 91 - less mud. The tent sites have covered picnic tables with a counter area - very convenient. Horse stables on the property so it was great watching them.
Aug 13, 2017
Awesome. Great staff and clean.

I am a disabled VET that uses a walker and wheel chair. The campground personnel were very helpful. I use a trailer to carry my power chair and the set aside a site for me to park it. I am sure they could have sold the spot. I am my two grandchildren loved our stay and will stay again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad we were able to accommodate! We try to give everyone the personal attention they all deserve. Thank you for camping with us, and we're looking forward to your return!

I rated everything the highest because you have a spectacular park, the location is super and the employees were extremely friendly and helpful. But, the WiFi service was awful. The lady at the office said you had to be patient, but my goodness......drop off, having to re log on constantly, it was impossible. When we checked in, the computer dumped the clerk in the office!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do struggle with wifi on a daily basis. Unfortunately, our remote location severely limits our options so there is not a good solution at this time. I will stay in touch with area providers and will adopt better service as soon as it is available in the area.

Clean campground, good spacing of sites, roads gravel, rough needs better gravel to prevent washing out into ruts. Older or personal with health problems need to consult with health specialist due to camping in thin air. camp sites over 10,000 feet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, the extra wet summer did wreak havoc with our sloped dirt roads! We invested heavily in tar-chipping around the main building to prevent the washout there, and I have (and continue) to re-surface the roads to reduce washout in the future. Thanks for the feedback!

Owners were great. Facility is clean and set in a beautiful setting. Great hike trail heads close by. Only disappointment was that even with the rains that most of Colorado was receiving during the two weeks we rambled around, this county was under a burn ban so no wood fires allowed. You could rent a propane fire pit from the office but they only had a few and all were rented/reserved.
Aug 12, 2017
Location is so pretty and staff very helpful and friendly. At night you can hear the wildlife howl, and during the day you may see as we did a group of deer walking through the camp ground. We have been there 3 times in the last four years and look forward the next.
Aug 12, 2017
Well kept. Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Would stay there again.
Aug 12, 2017
Enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be welcoming and helpful. Shower areas are private but a bit cramped...didn't care much for the textured, scratchy shower walls. Otherwise, the restrooms and showers are clean and well-maintained. Sites are gravel and fairly level. We stayed in a pull-through with a 30-ft travel trailer and could park the crew cab truck behind our rig at an angle. .

I really appreciated how the staff moved us to a treed campsite upon our arrival.
Aug 10, 2017
One of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. The staff bent over backwards to satisfy the guests. They had everything available that you could need on the road. Access to grills and outdoor kitchen. Wonderful laundry and showers. Hosted pancake breakfast Saturday & Sundays. The vistas were breathtaking. Will return to this campground ourselves and recommend to our friends.

It was so beautiful. The staff was so helpful and the KOA was VERY clean. I would highly recommend this KOA to others.

They were doing road work that was very loud at night. Should have scheduled it during the week when it wasnt so busy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, in this case the daily rain dictated the schedule for our campground improvements. There was NOT work being done at night, as you falsely state.
Aug 09, 2017
They were repaving the drive when we arrived, until 8pm. Was noisy and inconvenient trying to stay out of their way. Everything was neat and clean and pancake breakfast on the weekends is a nice touch, as well as the "tea towels" instead of paper towels in the bathroom. The wi-fi leaves a little something to be desired and no AT&T coverage. Don't know about other carriers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately the unpredictable weather led to road work at times we would have liked to avoid. Thanks for hanging with us through it!
Aug 08, 2017
Staff was helpful, grounds were nice, bathrooms clean. But it would be great if there was another set of showers, - many tenters and many Kabiners means there was a wait 2 out of 3 days.
Aug 08, 2017
Sites are pretty close together. Made it difficult to get in and out. Owners and workers were all very nice and helpful when we needed something. Very clean and beautiful area. Enjoyed our stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are hoping to add big-rig friendlier sites in the near future. Current layout is how KOA built em in the early 90's, when campers were a bit smaller. :)
