Iâve stayed at 10+ KOAâs and this was definitely a dissapointing experience. The staff was less than friendly and tried upselling me on a cabin when we requested a tent site. I had just been engaged and they even tried to guilt me into the cabin because âwe have one left and itâs going to be cold tonight, you arenât going to let the girl freeze are you?â. I did not appreciate that.

Staff not very flexible. Didn't seem to want to help our second group to get the site next to us while 2 other one night campers came and left during our stay.

Arrived late and was so glad to see how easy it was to navigate late check-in since I already had a reservation. Area was clean and staff was friendly, and restrooms were great! Enjoyed having power at the tent site!

VERY friendly staff. Nice bathrooms & showers

I liked the bathroom and showers. Very clean! I also liked that the koa provided food! Nice space, would have liked it to be a little more secluded.

I had a great stay at a tent site. The hosts were friendly and helpful the check in. The only thing I didn't like is that they assigned me a spot next to the only other tent site. So, we were right on top of each other. They could have spaced us out a little bit. No one else camped that night and the whole tent area was open. Next time I'll ask to be put away from the other tent sites.

Loved it!

Tent site w/electric. Nice design. Trees big enough to offer good shade. Tent pad needs a bit more dirt. Has been packed down enough in the middle for water to pool under the tent. Late in the season issue? Picnic table was warped so it had a large puddle that remained in the morn. Store was well supplied. Bath/shower very clean. All interior clean. Staff very nice.


These Items have been fixed sorry.

Facilities were excellent, however, the staff was less than accommodating. We reserved a tent site and were not able to pick a specific site as they were assigned on arrival. When we arrived, we were traveling with a group and they would not put us together because the other sites were already assigned, even though the other campers were not there. We arrived first... Poor customer service...

Clean, nice campground. We had a tent site in the trees. Really helped to shade the tents and keep them cool thru the day. Some of the tent sites are not shaded....they would be VERY hot. The hot tub was great. It was a shame that one of them was broken the whole time we were there. It was a continual dance to see if someone was in the hot tub and wait your turn. Pancake breakfast was grea

Enjoyed the pancake breakfast. The bathrooms were great. Tent sites were level but no shade very exposed. Very clean and help was friendly.

Camp ground is smaller, but that is nice! The bathrooms were very clean. Probably the cleanest camp bathrooms we have ever seen. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for someplace close to Denver and Golden but not in the city or suburbs.

Great people. make sure you have pancake breakfast (Leslie is great in taking care of the guests!). The campsites are too close. As long as you have quiet customer you are lucky.

Got there on a Thurs when it was going to rain. They had a cabin to upgrade to for the night. Saved the weekend.

Friendly staff, good breakfast. Very good tent sites. A more attractive entrance to the campground would help; I almost left before even checking in because it looked rather grim. Glad I stayed! Good signage for directions.

The KOA Denver west was an amazing place to stay. I especially enjoyed the super duper clean showers/rest room area!!! At the end of the day of sight seeing day I appreciated the hot tub to soak in. The pancake breakfast, at a nominal extra charge, was really yummy! Beyond the facilities, the staff were amazing and awesome! They were friendly and super helpful!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Clean campground, stated breakfast but there was not any

This was our first time in Colorado as well as our first stay at a KOA. The staff was very friendly, the check-in was easy and simple, and the campground itself was well-maintained and clean. The facilities were so CLEAN which is what makes this campground stand out. Hot showers, clean restrooms, and a nice mess hall. The tent sites are in a good location. Firewood quality = not good. Hard to burn

This is 45 minutes outside Denver so it is nestled up in the cooler mountains. It gets cold at night! The bathrooms were very clean and the hot tubs enjoyable! The surrounding areas have an abundance of hiking, rafting, and fun! We would recommend this KOA over many others because of its cleanliness and location.

Nice camping site in the trees and clean showers.
Aug 08, 2017
It would be great if there were more trees, even baby trees, around the first tent village. We felt super exposed to the road the whole time. But, facilities are nice, the staff was super friendly, and our site was clean.
Aug 03, 2017
Highly recommend. Super clean and well kept. Quiet location and top notch staff. We will definitely stay here again.

Great camping spot with electricity and privacy, just make sure you reserve the electricity spot. Clean bathrooms, loved the hot tub. Coffee is $1.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The. Facilities were super clean . We stayed in a tent which our site was next to the highway. The traffic noise was ok it's the fact that there wasn't any trees covering those sites that I didn't like. Other than that I can can't complain.

I attended the Rivera Family Reunion. I am part of the Rivera Family and it was an awesome experience. The campground was a perfect place for our extremely large family. The staff was excellent. The camp spots were so relaxing. The restrooms and shower was fantastic! I will definitely recommend KOA Central City in the future. We could not have chosen a better place for our family reunion! Thanks!

Chuck and staff made our family reunion go so smoothly. Hats off to you and your staff best KOA or any camp ground I have ever stayed at.
Jul 24, 2017
Chuck and his staff went over and above what I expected to make our stay a memorable one. We were there with a family reunion that included about 100 family members and every one was impressed with the camp and the staff.

One of the best KOAs I stayed at! My husband and I had our own private tent only area. We also loved the two hot tubs and game area. We did noticed some tent sites looked a little crammed but ours was spacious. I guess we got lucky!

Nice to stay at a nearly 9000 ft! No bugs!

Location is convenient if attending the Central City Opera. This is a ver clean KOA with excellent amenities. The staff was excellent and courteous. My only criticism is that the sites are very very small so there was noise from neighboring sites until midnight and at 6:00 am.
Jul 17, 2017
Very private and secluded tent sites. Nice amenities and bathrooms were clean. Pizza can be delivered to your tent. Overall, very nice. Would stay again.

Great campground on top of a mountain. Steep roads up and down. Elevation about 8500 feet. Clean, well run, friendly folks. Pancakes every day for $3, pizza on site.
Jul 10, 2017
Tent campsites were close together and very noisy beginning at 6am. Also the garbage truck came at 8am. Why? Facilities were nice however.
Jul 08, 2017
Scenery was great. The staff was nice and helpful. T5 site was wonderful. Free coffee would be good especially with the breakfast. Pizza delivery was a great idea. Showers and restrooms were great.

Great hosts. Great facilities. Loved the pancakes!

We LOVED staying there. It was Central to everything. Extremely clean & the staff was very friendly & helpful. We tent camped so there was plenty of room, shade & was happy there was both a fire pit & grill for us to use. We will definitely be back.
