Campground Reviews

Jul 16, 2019
The people at this KOA are friendly & helpful.We stay here once a year on our way to Colorado.This year we found the campground in disrepair.As others have noted the pool has not been open since May.The grounds/sites were weedy & unkempt.LOTS of overflowing trash.Both parking "lots" were full of construction workers vehicles.This hasn't been our experience in the past.Hope it turns around.

Took the kids for a weekend get away from the city. Figured we try this KOA because of the pool and slip n slide. We were not impressed at all. The pool was down for maintenance and kids weird have someone stand there with a water hose spraying my kids to make up for the pool being down. It just wasn’t for us at this KOA. Been to a lot better ones. Staff was nice and kind to us though. Thank you

Easy to find.

Making a reservation and checking in were easy and efficient. A couple of things I did not know about--extra charge for a third child when the kid's activities were closed at 6 and we could not get there before 6:30, no movie shows at this location, and the rec room was not open (along with the swimming pool--but we knew that beforehand). They informed us about the mosquito situation beforehand.

We reserved for 3 nights. We got there the pool was broken. It was 101 degrees. We canceled 2 nights and left. They didn’t want to refund us. And the next night at 9 pm we got a call they said we ran over the electric box. We did not run over the electric box. I think they were looking for money to fix their pool.

Trashy. Needs a regular mowing and too much junk laying around. If it looked like the promo pic above then I would stay there. Could be a nice place with a lot of TLC!!

Pool was broke down and lots of mosquitos.. other than that it wAs fine

It was a nice campground the pool had a leak so the kids couldn’t swim and the mosquitos were bad .

We liked our stay here and the owner and staff are definitely working to improve the campground. For example, while we were there they were installing new lights on top of the power pedestals. The facility was overall clean and orderly and the laundry room was nice. The office/store being open was somewhat spotty and the dumpsters were so full trash was overflowing them. The staff was friendly.

Very short overnight stay, Staff was helpful and efficient. As with most of the older KOA's the super rigs make it tight and can affect maneuverability within the park. Had good power supply and water pressure. What little I saw appeared to be well tended and neat and orderly.

It was fine. Just a little tight moving around the camper. Usual

Had a good time, cabin was clean and comfortable, just wish the pool had been open, but other than that its always a great place to spend the 4th of July!

The staff were very friendly and helpful and we got way more than we expected

Stayed at the La Junta KOA one night. The sites are very close together, tight squeeze getting in and out for larger rigs and in bad need of gravel! It rained during the night so we hitched up in mud and had to clean mud off of everything that touched the ground. The worst by far was the mosquitoes, I am talking epidemic portions as in health issues!! A lot of permanent residence, very cluttered!

I thought the trailer would be an rv. The ac in the trailer does not do an adequate job of cooling down trailer. The cabin has no place to put your stuff:) It was clean and well kept!

The pool was closed for repair the whole month of June. The water lines kept clogging my filter with rust. Other than those things it was ok. The staff and the other campers were friendly. I would stay here again.

Only go there if You love BUGS! They are everywhere ... in your eyes, nose and ears - all summer. The swimmingpool is closed, but the price is still the same.

Sites are side by side and very close..people in short van took our table which was right in front of our door and tied there 2 dogs to it . Also next day was the 4th and were told the store would be closed and the coffee wagon wasn't open either.. The shower s were good and is close to Walmart ..

I think the campground is showing its age, and feels like the owners are not putting quite as much effort and care and attention to detail into some areas - pruning, weed control, etc. The rec building was a storage area, etc. Bathrooms are fantastic, though!
Jul 02, 2019
I was very nice but would have been better is the pool had been working 104 degree temperature in La Junta was a killer!

No pool.

Seemed like it may have been nice at one time but is being allowed to go to pot. Pool was closed with no notice and he gave us a story about it just happening that spring but from looks of it had been out of order for some time. Was a cess pool breeding mosquitos. Rec room closed and piled with junk. Decrepit slip and slides. Inflatable castle broken.

We have received your comments. The pool was opened on May 9th & lost water immediately. We immediately posted notice on our KOA website & at the campground. That is the story! Rec Room remodeled & reopened by mid-May - and it looks great! Kids love the slip & slide and our working bounce castle. Please consider getting your facts straight. Meanwhile, have a nice day! Cheers! La Junta KOA

It was a nice campground. They had a few less amenities than the top KOA locations giving them only a slightly lower rating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you & fair enough - we agree! If there are any amenities you think we should add, do please let us know! Cheers & have a great summer of travel! Your La Junta KOA Team

KOA at La Junta, Crooked Arroyo location is much improved since it was built many years ago. Most trailer sites have shade. Tent sites are nice with sand enclosures and shade tents. The site lengths could be longer and roads between the rows of parking spots could be a bit wider. We were right at the limit of the space we were assigned. Bathhouse good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words - we are working hard everyday to make our campground better! Unfortunately, there is no way to stretch the site lengths & roads - it would be nice, though! Travel safe & have a great summer! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

The patio sites are a joke compared to other KOA patio sites and the regular sites are not always long enough to handle larger rigs.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Other than our Deluxe Patio Site (#44, which is awesome!), we don't really disagree. That is why we are working to upgrade them. We are replacing the patios in three sites right now and adding charcoal grills. As for the regular sites, the amount of space we have it what we have. We do have some 80+ foot-long sites, but only a few.... Cheers! The La Junta KOA Team

This is an old, small KOA. The staff were quite helpful and accommodating when we had problems at the site we were sent to. They have a nice little store as well. It's a great stopping off spot for a night or two. The down side is the pool is not open and doesn't look like it will be for quite some time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments. Yep, the pool sprung a leak. It does not get a lot of use, and the repair is going to be very expensive, so we are exploring options like a hot tub and/or splash pad. Have any ideas? We will have something in place for 2020! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

Quiet, very friendly staff who were all very helpful. The cabin we stayed in was clean and had all the amenities. Seemed a bit expensive for the location, but to be fair I’m not at all familiar with lodging costs in SE Colorado. The campground is close to town and that is a plus.

Friendly. Complimentary bottles of water at check in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We'd like to offer beer or wine, but the powers that be frown upon such things! So many of our guests come in hot, tired & thirsty, plus they have gained in elevation, lost some in oxygen, and some nice cool water goes a long way towards feeling better! Travel safe & have fun! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Our tent site was very nice, with sturdy sun shelter/wind break, double sink with running water, fire pit and charcoal grill. The showers and restroom were wonderfully clean and usable. One problem was picnic table, though usable had seen better days, being very rickety.

Thank you for your kind words & we have replaced the picnic table! Have an awesome summer of fun travel! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Reception lady nice and pleasant. Site, real nice layout with patio, furniture. Grill - dirty, fire pit had ciggy butts - attention to detail if your offering a nicer, premium site. Everything worked. Unfortunate pool was out. It is close to a walmart and a great RV capable self car wash.

Thanks for your feedback and you are spot on with your comment about the importance of giving attention to detail - we are on it! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team
