Great campground, store could use more supplies, breakfast could be a little earlier, overall a great place to stay.

Delightfully remote, well-kept, clean. In short, wonderful.

Crowded. My "yard" was right up against the neighbors sewer and water connections. They had horseshoe pits but couldn't find the horseshoes. No signage at all coming from Victor.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Camping's kind of popular in Colorado, so can't really apologize for being busy. Just saw the horseshoes so not sure what the issue was with that.

Camp sites were clean and beautiful, however they were quite close to other sites. The tent pads were too small and we were rolling down the hill throughout the night. If they were just a few square feet larger it would be much more comfortable. Just too small for even an average size tent. Clubhouse was clean and easily accessible.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry your stay wasn't fabulous. Our primitive tent sites have varying sized tent pads and unfortunately T2 where you stayed has a smaller 8x8 pad. Working toward enlarging all our tent pads if possible so hope to address that. Please call to confirm pad size next time.

This campground is just wonderful. Very clean and quiet. The staff is very friendly. The views are unbelievable. Beautiful. Close enough to go into the nearby towns, yet secluded enough to feel like you are far away. We loved it. We will be back!!!!

No trees, female staff not very friendly. We had family visit and we got the 3rd degree. Just 3 members, fire was to regulation we were told to keep it down for night 2200. We were not loud, just enjoying fire. From entrance looks like cheap mobile home sight, dog area is all dirt. On a steep incline we had to use 4 wheel drive to move on gravel .. it's all gravel. 1.25 hrs from ROYAL G. : (

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fire's always a problem when the county's under a burn restriction. Visitors must check in at the office. Dog park is all grass. RV pads are level. Perhaps female staff was intimidated by your threatening email and vm when you couldn't plug in your trailer (which I was able to do with no issue). Location is exactly where we say it is... 1.25 hrs from Royal Gorge.

Really beautiful location.. No cable TV and wasn’t able to pick up any tv channels.

First time visiting. Very nice campground, friendly staff and amazing views from the mountain side. We definitely plan on returning to the highest elevation KOA.

Wonderful 2-night stay in the more secluded, non-luxury tent area. Site was well prepared with a level gravel area for pitching the tent. Other tent camping neighbors were far enough away as to be out of site and quiet most of the time. Propane fire stoves worked well in lieu of the non-allowed campfires. Convenient access to Cripple Creek and several local hiking trails.

Very quiet. Sometimes very windy. Witnessed 2 tents dismantled by the wind on separate occasions. Nice facilities.
Aug 13, 2020
Beautiful place, very clean...but couldn't have fires even tho teller county is stage 1 fire ban
Aug 12, 2020
Excellent we will stay again !! Very clean , friendly staff !
Aug 12, 2020
Nice place, great people and great location. The only slight negative is the place could use additional bathrooms
Aug 12, 2020
We loved the location, great views, and we will certainly be back. It is clean and well maintained. I even got good advice from them on side trips to take to explore the area. I would have given them 5 stars except for the laundry facilities. They required quarters, but then had no quarters to sell us. We ended up driving quite a way to find another laundry mat.

We stayed there this past weekend in one of the camping cabins. The cabin was super clean and the campground was great. Everything was clean and sanitized and I felt very safe. Everyone was so friendly and you definitely can’t beat the sunset each night. Such a relaxing getaway, we will definitely be back!

So happy you felt safe! We're working hard to keep this COVID thing away, so appreciate the acknowledgement.

What a beautiful place to stay, temperature is fantastic and the staff is the best. I would highly recommend this KOA and like I said the staff goes above and beyond to make your stay the best ever.
Aug 11, 2020
I called ahead so I knew where to pick up out reservation papers, we were set to arrive after the offices had closed for the day. The woman on the phone was very helpful. Once we arrived finding our tent site in the dark as a little difficult but we found it. The site was quiet and secluded very nice! Only suggestions put a little light by tent site sign & having more bathrooms would be nice.

We had a great time. Our two room cabin was great

Awesome!

We had camper next to us, who stated he worked for the campground, that came to our campsite and yelled at us because our puppy got out of his harness and ran over to his site. We were watching the dogs and immediately saw it and were trying to get the dog. He was completely unprofessional and actually scared my kids to where one was crying. Poor representation of campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Your wife called to apologize for the misunderstanding, saying that you were cooking so couldn't hear our worker, so he yelled. Sounds like perhaps you don't agree. I would apologize, but I understand this was the THIRD time he asked you to keep your puppy away from his husky, who was tied up on his site. Your neighbors also complained about about your pup. Poor representation of RV campers.

Great campground. Good hosts.

Thank you!

Sites are very well kept. Crew is always working on the grounds. Always cleaning the site after campers leave so you know your touch points are sanitized. Great playgrounds and dog park. We will return.

The sites were ok, felt pretty exposed/ close to neighboring campers. Great dog park. Hosts were not overly friendly.

It was so clean and feel so comfortable

We loved staying in the Couples Cabin. The bed too was cozier than usual camping beds. The facility was also very clean. Also loved the views and sunsets.
Aug 10, 2020
We stayed at one of the new patio sites and it was very nice. We have been to this KOA a couple of times now and have always had a great stay. Will continue to come as long as it is here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you like the new patio sites! Hope to build some more this winter for next season. See you next time!

We enjoyed our stay. The KOA is easily accessible and sits on the western side of a hill, so you get some great sunsets. Curbside check in was easy and we were escorted to our site quickly. There are a couple of small play sets for kids, which was a positive for us. The weekend pancake breakfast was nice. Cell service is limited, so be aware, but the KOA's WiFi on site worked fine the whole time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Huzzah, our wifi works well! :) Invested in some upgrades recently, so happy to hear it helped. Thanks for staying with us, and for the kind words!

Great view, baby camp so need more trees. Otherwise was a nice place to stay. Store nice, staff nice. Did not use facilities so can't rate them. May or may not stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you liked the view, although if there were more trees, you wouldn't have been able to enjoy it. Glad you generally enjoyed your stay!

We have stayed at the Cripple Creek KOA twice in the last 4 years. We went back the second time because it was so nice and clean the first time. Everything was just as clean this time. This is a wonderful place to stay. We did have one couple that thought everyone wanted to hear their music playing outside until after 10pm. Not the campgrounds fault but not cool.
Aug 07, 2020
We stayed 4 nights and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful with suggestions for us to take the grandkids for fun. Our cabin was exceptionally clean. The camp grounds are well kept. The showers were very clean.
Aug 07, 2020
Clean, beautiful views
Aug 06, 2020
Loved it. Definitely exceeded expectations. Staff super friendly and helpful. Amenities were above and beyond what we expected (really good showers, clean restrooms, sinks for campers to clean cookware). Beautiful scenery and great location. Thanks for having us.
Aug 06, 2020
Had an awesome time. Terry is super accommodating when I messed up our plans and showed up a day early! The sites were clean. Unfortunately there were no activities and the game room was closed which made it hard on the kids

We were told not to park on the grass- makes sense... however the trucks towing their quads parked all over the lawn and tore up the grass. Did not appear to have the same rules for all campers.
Aug 05, 2020
We stayed for 3 days and felt protected from COVID 19 by the staff and other campers. Beautiful views (when not blocked by big rigs (we were in a Casita)! Nice trail up the mountain behind the park.
Aug 05, 2020
Check in was smooth. Friendly and informative staff. Very clean buildings and grounds. Perfect for myself and family.

I came for one week in July, and let me tell you I will be back. The campsites (I tent camped) were unreal. Gorgeous, quiet, away from the RV sites, and so pretty. Within driving distance to FAR more activities than I ever imagined. I could not fit it all in in a week. The dog park was awesome. I was only going to bring one dog, but ended up bringing two as last minute my dog sitter backed out. It was a relief to have the dog park to take them off the leash for a little bit every day. they are so dog friendly here. I love it. Recommendations for future campers (and myself when I return) - be prepared for a walk to use the restrooms / shower. They are a ways away from the sites (I drove at times cause when you gotta go, you gotta go lol) The restrooms are closer to the RV sites than the camping sites, and there are not primitive restrooms. Start walking BEFORE you get there (haha) the altitude killed me. I did not think it would but I got WINDED with even the smallest tasks. and bring some ibuprofen. The altitude sickness was real, folks. This campsite is 10,000 feet above what I am used to. I had a constant headache at the start but it got under control by the time I left.

Amazing staff work this place. It is very clean and well kept, lots of little fun things to do around the campground and the area. The woman who helped us find trails was very knowledgeable about where to go. (Hit the trails early though, those parking lots fill up fast.) The cabins were better than the last several KOA I stayed at. The cabins have more details added and are better sealed so bugs aren't bunking with you. Very nice bathrooms and showers, with super cute decorations. And the grills out for use are a godsend during a burn ban. The camp kitchen is also a really nice feature that is crazy convenient. This is definitely the nicest KOA I've stayed at, even without a pool.

Views for days, clean, quiet and relaxing. Just wish they had dump stations at each site instead of hauling the rv down the hill.
