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!

I was very nice but would have been better is the pool had been working 104 degree temperature in La Junta was a killer!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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

We stayed 1 nite and it was great! HOT water, great water pressure, staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was under construction but overall a great stop.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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!

Nice flat Campground. The picnic tables were in bad shape. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Friendly staff.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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

We were diappointed the pool was not open. But they were in the process of repairing it. The sites were very nice. Very clean and quiet. I liked the coffee/smoothie trailer they had.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We, too, were most disappointed that our pool sprung a leak, and even more so by the huge cost of fixing it and the long amount of time it would take to do so! Thanks for visiting The Daily Planet Coffee & Treats! Yummy stuff there! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

This was our second time there and enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had was when we were leaving we could not drive through our space and make the turn so had to back out but other than that our stay was fine.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming back & we're happy to hear that you enjoyed it again. We wish we had more elbow room for everyone! Have a great summer & travel safe! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team

Although the unit that we stayed in was fairly clean there were several spiders. Was told the unit slept five but didn’t know the fifth person had to sleep on the couch.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome to the beauty of nature & camping, which no matter how much you clean, may include some spiders! We do inform all guests, in writing & verbally, that the Fleetwood Prowler has a queen bed, a queen sofa sleeper & a couch, and that it can sleep up to five. Cheers! The La Junta KOA Team

Park was clean and quiet. Our site had an area filled with soft dirt which turned to mud after the rain. Should have been gravel as this is where rear wheels set.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback & the site has been re-graveled. We had just moved the septic input to a better location out of the driveway and had not had a chance to re-gravel before you stayed. It is all good now! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

Friendly competent staff.Fun family activities.Good coffee bar. Negative was sweet strong chemical smell in the camper we rented. Caused sore throat, red, runny eyes and runny nose and slight headache. Symptoms improved after airing camper for several hours.Use of natural products would reduce possibility of reaction.Camper was neat and clean and well supplied

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words & we're glad you enjoyed the camper. We appreciate your advice on the use of natural products. Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

People are great! Place appears run down a bit and quite a few long-term sites are a tad unkempt. In all fairness, we got there before season and a week after big snow, so may just be seasonal. However, that 5th wheel, boat on trailer and assorted landscaping equipment in front of the 50amp/FHU sites really does ruin the view and the ambiance.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We agree about the point regarding view & ambiance, and are working to find a better home for our landscaping equipment. The boat is for sale and the trailer is in dry storage from a former guest - we are trying to get them to come pick it up! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

Very clean!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, and we try hard to keep it that way. If we could only eliminate those nasty cigarette butts that get dropped on the ground...! Have a great summer & travel safe! Cheers! from your La Junta KOA Team

Due to loud & over priced facility I decided to not stay the second night but was told it has to be canceled 48 prior to when the stay was scheduled. If ever have to stay here only reserve one night at a time. Most of population is long time renters obviously working in area due to the hours they come & go and the “long time use look” of their spaces.

Well maintained grounds, very clean bathrooms with soft mats in the showers, fairly quiet except for road noise and trains passing( I love that sound). We were tent camping in towards the back of the park. Beautiful tent area. Only complaint is were a drive in, no reservations so they charged a higher rate because of that. Was tempted to sit in the parking lot & make a reservation, then walk in...

Water splitter valve wouldn’t close tightly enough to not leak on ground. Stopped at office but too early to let someone know. I’m sure they will figure it out. Single hydrant for two sites is not ideal but works.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. As with anything, some water splitter valves are good, and they often mysteriously disappear.... Some are not so good, and they stay around but often leak a little! As was once written, "You can't always get what you want, but sometimes, you get what you need!" Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

Park is somewhat run down. Seemed to be many permanent residents.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have received your comments. There is more construction in the area this year than there has been in quite a while, perhaps due to the economy, and our nation's workers have to stay somewhere, right? Cheers! The La Junta KOA Team

The pool wasn't filled on Memorial Day weekend, so mini golf and other things were free. Bathrooms and laundry were clean. Other campers were very friendly and interactive. A nice place! Our spot was shady and centrally located. Great food truck had coffee and goodies.

We stayed at a pull thru for 1 night as we traveled through the area. The year long full timers next to us had electrical cords all around the water faucet and then the faucet barely worked. The table and area at our front door had broken lights and a (?) Water fountain with junk next to it. Just a guess, but seemed like we took someone's full time space for an outrageous price.

The only issue was that the bathroom door was hard to close, other than that everything was great.

Friendly staff and friendly campers. I turned the water on too much and it was leaking; the camper in the site next to me very kindly let me know. I enjoyed hearing the occasional train, too.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We love our friendly team & our great campers - we hear such fun stories of their travel adventures & get to share about our local area, including the importance of trains in our past, present & future! Have a safe summer of fun travel adventures! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

We've used this KOA twice while taking family members to the train station in La Junta. We were so impressed by the care of this property. A bonus, it's in walking distance of the local Walmart & Dollar Tree.
