A lovely place to stay in late September when the aspens are changing color. A little bit windy, but completely beautiful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review! This has been quite a windy September but such is life in the mountains.

This KOA is good--the people who work here are friendly, and it's clean. Surprisingly, it's not a very scenic KOA, despite being located in the Colorado mountains. It's a sage-scrub flat field. I've stayed in more scenic KOA's with breakfasts for $10 a night less.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. This is the first time in about a thousand reviews since we've owned the place we've been called not scenic or flat! We're on the side of a hill and the scenery is all around, not down on the ground. I am glad you appreciate how you were treated and the cleanliness of the campground... that's what we work hard to accomplish!

Very nice sites and well laid out campground. The camp store was stocked and the camp kitchen is convenient. Beautiful views and friendly staff.

Tent sight was on an up grade hillside, to far to the restroom & not handicap assesible

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you were unhappy with our accommodations. You booked a PRIMITIVE tent site so that's what you got. We have Deluxe Tent sites that are a bit more accessible and right across the street from the bathrooms. As is often the case, had you mentioned any concern while you were onsite we likely could have resolved the problem. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do for you now that you've left.

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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking forward to next August!

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!

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!

Great staff, clean facilities. Beaitiful views!

Terri was the absolute best!! We had difficulties trying to make reservations due to cell service. Upon arrival, Terri Connie were very welcoming. This was my wife’s first time at a KOA. She was very pleased with the atmosphere, cleanliness and hospitality. We can’t say enough. Top notch!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is exactly what we strive for; thank you!

Awesome, Beautiful and everyone was very nice. We just needed more time to see the Area more but other than that it was an awesome trip and an even better stay. Showers were great, playground was awesome for the kids, everything was great and we will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So glad to hear you had a great time! Amazing how much local history you can uncover if you take the time to.

Very private camp site. loved the location. very friendly and helpful staff.

Perhaps the best KOA in CO, & I’ve stayed in KOAs all over CO for 30+ yrs. Top staff are consummate professionals. Very clean & better materials/equipment in common areas such as bathrooms. Laundry room open all night, providing the best reading light of any KOA. Very convenient, scenic location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the kind words. We're glad we could provide what you want from a KOA!

Way to windy, and expensive for this time of year, the store was only open a couple of times a day. I am finding all of your KOA are expensive for this time of year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, it can get windy in the Colorado mountains. You can expect a high level of service, security, and cleanliness at KOA and there is a cost related to that. Our pricing is competitive with similar campgrounds in Colorado with comparable features and amenities. We'll be happy to direct you to the non-KOA down the road next time you come through. You may want to lock your tent zipper there though.

The owners Terri and Deric have a nice place and take pride in their KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We think it's pretty nice too, and we do take pride in our little getaway. Thanks for noticing, and glad you enjoyed it!

We had a tent site in the meadow and it was gorgeous!!! The safe was super friendly and helpful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! Your timing was GREAT so you got to enjoy some unseasonably warm and sunny weather with the beauty of the Aspens changing. Glad you enjoyed!

Great tent site. Outstanding views of the mountains that surround the campground. Excellent pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

Loved the place, the only downside is the road noise. Lovely people run the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us during your tour of Colorado! We are away from the highway a bit, so fortunately the road noise is usually manageable. My apologies for the inconvenience!

The staff was absolutely great! They were very warm to welcoming, offered to help us bring our wood and items up to our camp site. They greeted us every time, and were available to answer any questions we had. Very conversational! The campground is very nice, and up kept. The campsites are great, and the facilities are clean! Overall, very great stay, very great staff, very great location!

We stayed in the tent campsite back in the wooded area and there was enough space between us and other campers, which we loved. We wanted to have a traditional camping experience and we did. Super friendly and Very clean! We will be back for sure! Thank you for an awesome stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Awesome that you appreciate the beauty and serenity of our primitive tent sites... thanks!

Weekend tent camping in the aspens was awesome. Main road is far enough away that traffic noise was no problem. The owners were awesome and the pancakes and coffee made for an easy weekend of touring. We hiked the nearby Vindicator Valley Trail, Jeeped the Phantom Canyon road to Florence, visited Bishops Castle in Wetmore, and dined in Victor. KOA is well maintained and cozy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sounds like an awesome weekend. Thanks for letting us be a part of it!

This was my first adult camping experience! The campgrounds were very clean. Connie was very helpful and informative. I plan on visiting other KOA in the near future

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad we could give you an intro to what KOA has to offer. Thanks for camping with us!
Aug 26, 2018
We didn’t stay long but very clean. Liked having a covered picnic table with a light. Will definitely recommend to others.

Stayed at a tent space and had a wonderful vist.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad to hear it; Thanks! Also glad you weren't bothered by the mine nose. :)

Firendly, clean campground. The pancake breakfast was a bonus too. We came in after dark, so the only thing I would say, could use markers out by camp drives to locate site easier.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review, and the suggestion. We're working on better directional signage around the campground, and at all our tent and cabin sites.
Aug 20, 2018
He Hard to sleep the mine nose and the traffic on 67

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Perhaps a cabin would be more appropriate next time around? How about those views? Any interactions with staff you'd like to comment on? How about the facilities?

Excellent site location; great view of the tall pine trees and the valley below. The bathrooms, showers and the overall grounds were clean. Staff were friendly and courteous. Excellent place visit Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods and the Broadmoor seven Falls

Thank you!

Nice campground in the mountains. Isolated from civilization. Heard the wolves and coyotes at night. Close to Pikes Peak and Cripple Creek. Wouldn't recommend going to Cripple Creek or Victor. Nothing but casinos. Campground gas grills didn't work very well.
Aug 15, 2018
We loved how clean and picturesque the actual KOA site was. All the right amenities and some of the cleanest showers/restrooms we have seem at a KOA. The owners were very helpful in getting us oriented to the community and recommended good hikes and local activities. Cripple Creek the town was a disappointment. The steam train ride and Molly Kathleen mine tour are great. The rest is just gambling

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the kind words on your camping experience. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Cripple Creek has quite a bit more to offer beyond gambling. There are three museums in town that highlight the rich history of the area (Cripple Creek was almost the capitol of Colorado!) and a lot to see and do around the area. We have plenty of recommendations!
Aug 15, 2018
It was a good location. We stayed in a tent and I was hoping to be much farther out away from everyone else. The first night there was a lot of people and they were pretty loud, even flew a drone at night. That’s my only complaint is being too close to others. The grounds were very nice and the staff was amazing. And I love that there was a dog park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There was a lot going on last weekend! Scout troop flew their drone at night and fairly early in the morn, but fortunately not during quiet hours. Depending on your site, it can feel somewhat crowded when we're full. Thank you for taking the time to post a constructive review!
