The person working the front desk was incompetent.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are soooo sorry! We were short a staff member as her son was killed that morning & the person who tried to help you was a young high school student who had just started working for us helping in the campground and offered to assist in the office when we had to stretch. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this staffing deficiency caused you. Please accept our apologies for not doing better.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful and the shower house very clean. My only negative was the high price. The last time we stayed here about four years ago, the price was quite a bit lower, as I recall.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, the prices were probably lower 4 years ago, but when we bought the park 2 years ago we found a ton of maintenance that had not been done. We have replaced almost all fencing, remodeled the playground & tent sites, planted nearly 100 trees, added night lighting, cleaned-up the arroyo bank and much more - and those things cost money.... Thank your for staying!

Pool closed way before posted time, no change available for laundry, playground was not very good....all reasons why we stopped there. Our children were not happy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry to hear that your children were not happy with their stay. Our pool is always open until dusk, and change for the laundry is available 12-13 hours per day in our office. We have added a pair of very fun inflatables (30' water slip & slide & bounce castle), and a new playground slide, and will continue to improve our amenities for kids. Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was by far the most we have ever paid for a place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us, and we are lucky to have such a great staff! Have a safe, fun summer of travel! We hope you get to visit Estes Park, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park - all great KOA's! Your La Junta KOA Campground

Spaces seemed too small & too close together. Couldn't believe pool was closed for a private event on night of stay! Laundry room was so hot it was unbearable to stay inside of it for any length of time. Office seemed staffed by kids. Recreation room was locked up and a key had to be obtained to even enter it. Bathroom was pretty good sized and clean. Was close to Walmart & Village Inn.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to comment. The sites in our South Park are much longer & wider. When we have a private event (average 1 per 10 days) we limit it to 3 hours max per day, leaving the pool open for 8 hours. Our laundry swamp cooler was having issues & has been fixed. We lock the Rec Room as we had items stolen from it-we gladly check out a key to it at the Office. Have a safe summer!

Park was ok. Very small site

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We are working everyday to improve our park & have replaced almost all fencing, planted nearly 100 trees, added night lighting, remodeled & upgraded the tent sites & playground and much more, with more to come! We encourage you to check out our South Park where the sites are longer & wider. Travel safe - Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Pretty old KOA, Rec Hall disused and hot and spooky. Rusty water due to old iron water pipes.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, it is pretty cool that it has been a campground for over 60 years & KOA for 49 of those! We're glad you noticed that in the past 2 years all fencing has been replaced, over 100 trees planted, the playground & tent area remodeled & significantly upgraded & lighting added everywhere! We advise guests to run their city water for a few seconds to clear them ol pipes. The Rec AC is working well!

Dog park was dangerous! Screws sticking out of the “A frame” ramp where the dog would walk. The site we were given was too small. Our trailer overhung the site. Web site advertised water slides but they were inflatable and closed before the time we arrived 4:30 pm. The campground had lots of construction debris around like huge chunks of concrete, metal pipes etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to comment, particularly re. the dog park - we were unaware & are fixing it! We open the inflatables upon demand; along with your site, we would be happy to assist-please just ask! The concrete debris is from one part of the arroyo that was used for decades as a fill and we are cleaning it up - thanks for noticing! Travel safe & cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Need to trim trees as they rub on camper. Camping spaces are to small for most rigs today. There is not enough space to park camper and pulling vehicle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We trimmed the trees-we do this at the beginning of every summer. For longer rigs, we encourage their camping in our newer South Park where the spaces are longer & wider. The site you stayed in is 53 feet long, and with a 30 foot long camper, your pulling vehicle must be huge and fun to drive!! Travel safe with that one...! Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Tea

Good place for an overnight stay. Sites are well spaced and easy to get into. Unfortunately, no cable TV.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind comment. We cut the cable (30 channels) and upgraded our Wifi by bringing fiber into the campground - plus, there are over 20 channels that can be pulled in with a conventional antenna. We suggest your trying our Roku - it does a great job pulling in Wifi and is easy to use - only $30 at Walmart. Have a great summer & be safe - cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Just an overnight stop. But it was so cute and clean. Loved it

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Cute? COOL! Thank you! We don't know if we've ever been called cute, but thats the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, we like it! LOL! Do, please, come stay with us again - we'd love to see you! Have a terrific ton of fun this summer - be safe! YOUR cute La Junta KOA Team! PS: Or was it just the campground that was cute?!

We like to stay there on our way to Salida, CO from Wichita. KS. Easy to pull our 31 ft motorhome towing a jeep in & out. Swam in the pool, very nice! Very friendly staff and clean campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, thank you! We hope you had a great trip and get to do more along our route...! Enjoy your summer of travel! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

It was weird. The staff were very pleasant, which was a plus. It just seemed as if it wasn't really an rv park; more of a long-term rental place with some rv slots available. But at least KOA provided somewhere to put an rv in La Junta.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for taking the time to comment. We have 55 RV sites, of which 10 are back-in sites that are used for monthly rentals who do a very good job of keeping their sites neat. Travel safe - cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Campground was very nice, friendly & gracious hosts. They are in the process of updating some things such as the surrounding fences, play areas, etc., which makes it look untidy in some areas, that can be excused! A very good place to stay, would recommend it. We camped for 1 night on our way to Albuquerque.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for recognizing our improvement efforts and accepting the messes that can come with construction!! We are working hard to make our campground the best it can be, and it is a bummer when people complain about a temporary inconvenience that is needed to make a long-term improvement. We welcome you back anytime! Have a great summer of camping! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Good friendly staff. Parking of cars and trucks, throughout the park, needs to be controlled. Tight spots, and very close trying to exit park in forty-five foot big rig with tow.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your observations - you have a very good point, but controlling everyone's parking is no easy task! We will continue to work at it, though...! Have a good summer & thanks for staying with us. Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Sites and bathroom were clean. However, The creek along the edge of the property could potentially be a very nice feature if it were not used as a dumping ground of debris. Disappointed in the seeming disregard of nature. The dead tree limb over our site was also concerning. The campground has potential though, if given a little tlc!

Hard to access the dog run, too many dogs & not enough space for them to exercise. We had to shorten our stay & even though I let them know on Friday morning that we would be leaving on Saturday I was only given half credit for the Saturday night stay. All hotel chains I use gives 24 hours to cancel or change the registration. We did appreciate the trees for shade, as it was over 100 degrees.

Camp ground was clean and kept up . Was very quit with as many people that where there. We have stayed there evey year for the last 3 years and will stay there again.

The campground is good, nice pool and small dog area. Not the campgrounds fault, but it was friggin' hot while we were there. The grounds and the folks being nice, made it better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. Yep, it can certainly be hot here, not doubt! Thanks for staying with us & stay cool & safe out there. Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Nice campground, however the site was too small for our rig.

Thank you for the compliment - we appreciate it! Next time you visit, let's get you into our South Park where the sites are longer & wider...! Have a great summer of adventure! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!
