We drove from Indiana and tented at Cripple Creek for the first time for a week. Every night, we heard coyotes and elk, saw bald eagles and mountain goats during the day and heard about a mountain lion nearby. The landscape is breathtaking (this was our 1st time in CO), the hosts were wonderful, facility clean. Only complaints are the tent spots were a bit too close together. We’ll still be back

Our tent site was excellent. We appreciated the shelter for the picnic table, and especially the built-in shelf (perfect for the Coleman stove and cooking). And, we were fortunate to be there for the Fall colors. Beautiful!! Friendly and helpful staff. The restrooms were well maintained and clean. Due to fire restrictions, we didn't have a campfire but look forward to that in the future.

Great standard tent sites in the trees that felt further away from RVs. Friendly and helpful staff. Rentable propane fire bowl was a nice bonus!

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were very clean. Showers were small but well maintained. Gorgeous area.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here! It had all the amenities you could possibly want for “glampers” like us! �

The best Koa I've stayed at! I tent and there is a canopy over the picnic table along with a shelf to put your stove and food on. Washing dishes was so nice in a separate area with 2 sinks, dish/hand soaps and scrubber. Staff super nice. Nice gravel tent areas.

Worried we would be tent camping beside the road but the primitive spots were great! Clean bathrooms...friendly staff. Only negative is the late check-in time. You lose a day that you could be relaxing and at the price per night, it would be great to have more time. Especially since it has such an early checkout!

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Check out is noon, check in 2pm. We need those two hours to clean everything and keep your spots great!

Wonderful, friendly staff - great property and views. We stayed in tent sites - spacious, nestled against the forest. Great location for families.

My boyfriend and I stayed at a deluxe tent site. It was our first time at any KOA, and it was great! All the facilities very clean, face masks required in public areas (including restrooms), I felt very safe. There are gorgeous views of the mountains as well. There's a hiking trail in the back that's really nice (but a bit hard to follow!).

View was absolutely gorgeous and campgrounds were very clean. Staff was amazingly helpful
Aug 25, 2020
Our tent spot was a bit difficult to find. A few more signs would be super helpful in the dark! Otherwise, a great spot - and now I can say I have stayed at the highest KOA in the world! Thank you!

Thanks for the constructive criticism! We have some signs ready to install. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly right from the moment I pulled up to check in. The tent sites are beautifully tucked away in the trees with a gorgeous view. The propane fire pit rental was amazing and so worth it.

Cripple Creek KOA is in a gorgeous location. The primative tent camp sites are very secluded and in the trees with plenty of privacy. Scenery is spectacular. We saw deer in the vacant sites next to us.
Aug 24, 2020
it was comfortable stay and we like the view . Definitely stay again if we visit one more time.

A quick getaway with my partner and my dog. I had never been camping before but it was Ana amazing first experience at cripple creek KOA

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.

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 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.

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.

Peggy was very helpful on Saturday attempting to help my granddaughters set up our tent before it started raining. I then went to the office to see if a cabin was available for the night due to the rain. A gentleman was in the office bleeding from a head wound due to a canopy hitting him in the head. I was able to provide first aid to the wound since I am a nurse. I received the cabin for free.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the first aid help! Giving you a warm dry place to camp for the night was the least we could do. Peggy's pretty awesome, isn't she?

I enjoyed my tent site. I appreciate how clean the restrooms and shower were. I also appreciate the precautions the store staff took on keeping things safe and clean.

We camped in the "Meadows" in tents. (Don't expect it to be perfectly level, you are on the side of a mountain.) The view is beautiful. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The pancake breakfeast was good and saved us some time preparing food and cleaning up. We didn't use it, but the camp kitchen looked like it would be very useful especially for tent campers. Thanks for the experience!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, so glad you enjoyed your stay! I will be putting 16x16 tent pads on the meadow sites soon, so hopefully you won't have to sleep on the slope next time.

We booked out of the convenience and availability, but this campground was lackluster in delivery. There is a fire ban in Teller County and MULTIPLE campsites still had wood fires. We notified the staff and the next night the same campsites continued to host wood campfires. Our campsite was extremely angled and challenging to tent on. A nice campground with a gorgeous view besides that.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

MULTIPLE campsites had a PROPANE fire, which is legal under current burn restriction. I checked personally when I heard you reported your neighbors (THANK YOU for doing that!) and there had not been wood in that fire pit for some time. They did have a large propane burner, so you likely saw flames from that.

It was wonderful, the staff are excellent and even helped when we had an emergency.

Campsites were clean. There aren’t enough bathrooms or showers and one or another was always out of order. Toilet paper needed to be stocked more often. Bathrooms and showers were closed for a long time for cleaning given that there weren’t enough in the first place. The women staff working the store were grumpy and not very friendly. The men staff were accommodating and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Stuff breaks, I fix it, sometimes it takes more than a day. Bathrooms are never closed for cleaning as long as the posted cleaning window. We did have a vandal empty out TP in men's bathroom; we stock it at 7pm, 8am and all day long. My apologies if you feel you were mistreated; we do our best to treat everyone warmly and welcoming.

We enjoyed our stay, just hoped that it didn't rain as much though. Great hospitality by the owners. We talked to Deric a few minutes when we were walking around the area and he gave us some good information. We hiked up to the knoll and great, great views. We loved the pancake breakfast. Will go back again.

Thank you, and come back soon!

Great place with a great view. Friendly staff and clean facilities.

Didn’t feel super safe knowing I was surrounded by Trump lovers. They made rude comments to us about my car and from then on we were worried. Bathrooms weren’t available as promised - they were closed at any random times of the day or night... NOT ideal when camping in the middle of nowhere. Workers were rude: I asked for help getting around the site with my car (lots of one ways) and he ignor

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Are you possibly confusing your stay with us and another campground? You stayed in a Deluxe Tent site with us and roads there are two-way. We ALWAYS help when requested. Bathrooms are ONLY closed noon to 2pm for cleaning. We would not tolerate anyone making you feel unsafe.

Beautiful place, well kept property, friendly people! Facilities were very clean and showers were amazing!

We tent camped. Site T11. Beautiful view overlooking campground. Check in was easily done (curbside). Slight road noise but not bad. Overall 2 thumbs up.

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.
