Campground Reviews

This is always a fantastic stop Terri and Derek are amazing hosts. We are treated like family. The setting can’t be beat- go there! But leave room for us!

Glad you two can make it back year after year!

Great camp sites, showers and location. Biggest negative is WiFi is almost none existent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're a remote mountain getaway. Wifi service options are limited, although this year 10x faster than last year. You were tent camping, so internal service is further limited at the tent locations. Continuing to work to improve it!

Everything was great. Quick check in no issues. Site could have been more level. Too much of a slope made the picnic table useless and using chairs in the grass was impossible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the feedback! Level ground (other than camper parking pads) is certainly a challenge on our mountainside retreat. We do have gravel pads for tables on some of them and will continue addressing the other significantly sloped sites as we are able. Looking at some KOA Patio sites as well as decking to give our campers some better sitting areas. Thanks!

We made a reservation for 6 days. They gave us a spot with NO septic! We have a 40 ft and asked for full hookups, since we have W/D. They had . They reserved those septic spots, even with us there already!!! Also, the site we were in was so steep that our Golden Retrievers could barely get up! We asked practically every day and they refused. We will NEVER stay there again!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On 6/28/19 at 11:58 AM YOU booked a water/electric only site on koa.com and were sent an email confirmation stating exactly that. The folks that actually reserved full hookup sites received them. We do, however, move campers to more preferable sites every day so certainly would have done so for you had there been availability. What a relief that you won't bring your victim mentality here again!

We loved our stay at the Cripple Creek KOA. It has a very nice Bark Park for our puppies. The people were very friendly and the campsite was very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you and your pups were happy here!

Enjoyed this well managed and cared for KOA. Terri, I particularly enjoyed the pretty "flowers"!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Dandelions can be beautiful, can't they? Thanks for the compliments on our park!

Deluxe Cabins are super-duper. A great alternative to traditional hotels and a beautiful location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While we pride ourselves on being a campground (rather than a city suburb), we're happy to provide a couple fancier cabins for folks who don't enjoy roughing it. Thank you for the compliments, and glad you were so comfortable!

For being a rather remote KOA at 10,000 feet, we had a very enjoyable stay. The restrooms were very clean. The store and staff were very nice and helpful. The cabin was clean and site was very pleasant. We will definitely consider staying here again on future trips to the Pike's Peak area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you were happy with our facility; thanks!

Can't beat the view at Cripple Creek KOA, but please consider making the sites big rig friendly. We stuck out on the road and our truck did not fit the site properly. Other issue at our site was it was sloped so much (yes, we were on a mountain so I get it), we could not use the picnic table unless we moved it on the driveway where the camper was.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review. The campground was built in the early 90s, when 60' sites were big. We do have plans to add some big rig sites, however infrastructure investment must come first. Currently adding some KOA patio sites which will provide a few more level picnic tables... then can address that issue on all the sites at some point. Short answer, working on it, and appreciate the feedback!

Great location in relationship to Victor, Cripple Creek, mines, hikes, et al

Too many dandy lion weeds in the grassy areas and too many people parking in empty spots.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wildflowers grow in the wild... including dandelions... particularly with our very wet spring and summer.

I understand the beauty and remoteness. Beautiful place. Only thing I would say is the WiFi needs improvement.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our remote beauty comes at the cost of few internet service provider options. Continuing to look at all opportunities for improvement but won't likely ever have city speeds.

Well run, nice people. Rather crowded due to design & popularity. One very disappointing non-feature—-no TV cable.

My wife and I just stayed here for 2 nights with some friends. It is your pretty typical KOA, minus some of the usual amenities like a pool or restaurant. It’s in a big open space area a few minutes outside the city. The rv spaces are decent, fairly close together and to trees or shade around the sites. The tent sites are really nice, up in a wooded area above the RV area.

My grankids think this is the best KOA ever. I agree.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We agree with your grand kids too. :)

Nice place. It needs some more activities. If you like a nice place to take in nature this is it. Good place to come and unwind.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! Few organized activities (by choice), but 2 playgrounds, playroom, pedal karts, volleyball & basketball court, horseshoes, an amazing hike out our back gate and plenty of space for kids to play. Our area boasts a huge amount of gold-mining history as well as endless outdoor activities. No amusement park nor city amenities here; we're about the camping as you observed!

Very clean, loved camping kitchen and clean bathrooms and showers. Very quiet after 10 pm.

Glad you enjoyed it (and thanks for taking care of our dental hygiene)! :)

The young owners do an amazing job of keeping the place clean and making everyone feel welcome. We came up from Broomfield Colorado and felt like it was our second home. Sites are very nice and clean. Make sure you bring levelers just in case you need to level your vehicle . Pancakes are to die for!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the great review! Agree that you should always have levelers along when RV camping. Since our sites are gravel/crushed granite and on the site of a hill, some to have a low side.

Beautiful KOA, very well kept, super friendly staff. When we were leaving after our stay we noticed we had a problem with our travel trailer and couldn’t get it home. The staff worked with us to arrange a site until we can get it towed home. Highly recommend this KOA!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a guest at our home, you deserve whatever support we can give. Thanks for the recommendation!
