Take time to communicate better with your customers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not clear what the issue was, but would love to understand better. We pride ourselves on customer service, and work hard to be clear and concise on all communications.

We had a great time! Not knowing the area so well when we started out, so next time we will come better prepared for high 30s, low 40s at night in August (lol). But really fun.

It was Great! The people were so friendly and helpful to us. The tent area was exceptional and everything worked! We will definitely stay there again when we get the chance.

No cable,or wifi very discouraging for evenings

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Given our remote location, our options for services are limited. Wifi service is the best available for this location (terrestrial satellite). Regardless, we are a campground and would encourage you to remove yourself from the indoor electronics while here... otherwise you're not camping. There are many casino hotels five miles down the road.

Exceptional Hosts. Well laid out property. Serene view of 10k high Rocky Mountain meadows. Saw to Bighorn sheep. Casinos nearby at Cripple Creek. Historic, wild west town Of Victor 7 mi away, as well as fishing at high mountain lake Skagway.

Lady at front desk was very sweet, knowledgeable and professional.

Always have a great time when I stay, cabins are very nice. Staff is very friendly

We went up here on short notice, just for an overnight visit to get away (super easy to book online BTW). This was by far the best experience we have had tent camping in a long time. Their General store was stocked and had an amazing variety of supplies (without getting price gouged for convenience!!). The staff was courteous, kind, and we didn't even mind that they were in the process of upgradin

Amazing views. This is one of the best KOAs I've ever stayed at. The kamping kitchen is a wonderful touch (we stayed in a kabin).
Aug 02, 2017
All was well except they had very little ( or none) information to share on things of local interest
Aug 02, 2017
What a scenic location!
Jul 31, 2017
A beautiful view from any of the campsites. Sites are tight if you have a bigger rig. Very friendly owners and workampers. They even filled our propane tank for us and installed it in the camper for us. We were there during the monsoonal Colorado rains, so the drives were rather washed out. Easy drives to Cripple Creek and Victor for tourists. We will return another time for sure.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful setting, lots of amenities yet still private and secluded (tent sites). Will absolutely stay again.
Jul 31, 2017
The staff was amazing the cabin was clean and well made. The campground itself was fun for thew kids and the facilities were clean. We will be coming back
Jul 31, 2017
Everyone was very friendly.
Jul 31, 2017
We had a great time and the camp was awesome.
Jul 31, 2017
Only issue was that the neighbors fire pit was set way too close to our trailer location. We were happy the weather prevented them from burning.
Jul 31, 2017
Very nice restrooms and showers. The grounds were very clean. The people very friendly. The pancake breakfast was great. The campsites a little cramped and being on a hill side the getting in and out of the RV was a little tricky. Would be nice if the pads were a little wider and leveler.

Thanks for the candid review! As new owners this season, we are working on plan to re-level all our RV and tent sites. While we can't increase the space between existing sites, we have also begun planning to add some big-rig friendly sites. Check back!
Jul 31, 2017
Spaces between sites is rediculis. The bathroom's have no hot water in the sinks. Ruts in the roads are deep enough to cause my trailer to almost bottom out. This was my first time camping at a KOA and will not return to any other KOA and will not renew my membership.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Resolution is already in progress for some of the items you mention, however seems your expectations of "camping" are not in line with what our campground offers. We provide a safe and comfortable family camping experience in a beautiful outdoor mountain environment. The exceptionally wet summer has taken it's toll on our gravel roads and our ability to repair them as quickly as we'd like.
Jul 30, 2017
clean and well kept

Beautiful campground and super friendly staff, just be aware that the wifi is spotty and there is no phone reception if you have AT&T!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking for new internet providers but our options are very limited, given our remote location.

The main road up to camp sites need to be scraped more often and stone would help. Also needs a KOA sign at the CR 81 road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is a highway sign on 67 indicating the KOA left turn on highway 81. The recent heavy rains have taken their toll on our dirt roads, although we're doing everything we can to whip em back into shape!
Jul 30, 2017
Well kept, clean campground, with helpful accommodating staff. Great amenities for family camping, especially for the kids. Beautiful view from all camp sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you!
Jul 30, 2017
A Really good place for high mountain and cool weather. Not a typical kids centric KOA but they were entertained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We don't have a lot of organized kid's activities, but we provide the kids to play with your kids!
Jul 30, 2017
One of the friendliest and cleanest KOA's I've ever been to. And I have been a committed KOA camper since 2004.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to have your approval!

Clean, comfortable and nice folks.

Disappointed that the fact that a fire ban was in place and not mentioned when reservation was made. Would not be a big deal but as cool and wet as it is at altitude it would have made us go 20 mins down the road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There has been a HIGHLIGHTED message on our website indicating the fire ban for over a month. It is also a matter of public record and is clearly indicated on Colorado state and Teller county messaging. We also offer propane firepits for rent, for those who don't heed the messaging.

It was a great campsite & great hosts. Thank you.
Jul 26, 2017
Friendly owners, clean facilities and great pricing on store items. My family had a wonderful experience.
Jul 26, 2017
Got in late the night we checked in, everything was fresh and clean. It was a wonderful lil cabin. But if you have trouble sleeping I think a full size cabin is for you and me alike. There are real beds in larger cabins, this will make your stay beautiful.
Jul 26, 2017
Very nice host. Clean KOA. Elevation was definitely a problem & several in our party became sick. RV spots were good but a bit close. Basic cabins need better heat options like a window heat/air unit. We froze to death. Bathrooms could be improved on, but overall a nice place. Beautiful area/views!
Jul 26, 2017
This is a good location. The people were friendly. The sites are aligned for a decent view into the valley. The sites can be challenging to get into with larger trailers/5th wheels. We would stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to have you back any time! We are considering opportunities to add some larger sites in the near future.

The roads were terribly rutted and grooved. They need to grade everything. The spots were incredibly tight to pull into - we had to go back and forth to get around the retaining wall. We have three stairs outside the door and we still sloped down hill which was very nerve racking to step out. The location is fantastic but I am not sure we would come back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hope you give us another visit in the future as we are addressing most of your stated concerns ASAP. New owners, so will take some time.

Wish we could have fire or rent propane fire
Jul 24, 2017
Great camping destination! Very quiet!! Only bummer is that we couldn't have a fire!! We really missed our smores!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That is a bummer. Wish you could have stayed one more night and joined us for s'mores on us last night. Maybe next time around!

Very clean facility and helpful staff.

Nice people. Bad wifi

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, that's the best internet service you can get in our remote location. Fortunately, our campground is an excellent place to escape technology!
Jul 23, 2017
The staff were wonderful and the campground clean and tidy. Cripple Creek is one of the most beautiful areas ive seen in Colorado
Jul 23, 2017
The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The facilities were always clean. The store contained anything I ever needed. Wonderful place.

Beautiful campground at 10,000 feet.
