Tent Reviews

A great, well kept campground with friendly staff!

Paid for a deluxe tent site. Trash all over including liquor bottles in the parking lot. Someone was parked in my space which made unloading difficult. Only one teenage staff member available who couldn’t get us firewood. Amenities are a joke. The pool is broken down taped off with a hearse parked next to it. Dog park? More like 5’ of space. No office staff available even on a Saturday.

This campground has great potential, but could use some work. The dog area had a bunch of spider webs in between the wooden fence posts, and those fence posts could use a fresh coat of paint. The play structures in the dog area could be fun, but they're old and rotting and could also use a fresh coat paint. The premium tent sites were interesting. The pool is closed and being renovated.

Nice host, greeted us with bottles of water on a hot day. Only complaint is neighbors with dogs barking and lots of contractors who left headlights on into my tent for way too long, not the fault of KOA. Nice hot shower and clean restrooms.

tents site were okay, sort of private, sink in each site. Pool was closed all summer due to a liner break, they couldn't get it fixed, but it would have been nice to have that posted on their web site. We would have went else where. We could use the community room, BUT it required them holding our drivers license until we returned the key. We NEVER had to do this before to use a community room.

great camp site one of the best tent sites we have stayed in, arrived with kids it would have been nice to know on the web site that the pool was being rebuilt, but we made due, will be staying there again

Cross country bike ride. Campground was very convenient and the young lady that set us up did an excellent job. We felt welcome.

Tent site...Good amenities yet far from bathroom. Clean bathrooms.

It is a nice older KOA. Brad is very professional and pleasant. The miniature golf is a hoot! Our only problem was the horde of bugs, and that is from the unusually wet summer we've had.
Aug 03, 2019
The gentleman at the desk, Ray, I think was really nice. The camp site was full black bugs in the grass. The kind the roll up when you touch them. The grass was mostly weeds. Everything else was to be expected given the fact that it's off the highway and around other businesses.

Pool was out of commission. Slip and slide and miniature golf were fun. Mosquitoes made the visit difficult because we were in a tent.

We had a great time, love the property, staff is excellent!

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!

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...

Great campground nice bathrooms, great premium tent ate with water & cover. Loved our time there

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you, thank you!! Tent Campers are loving our new tent sites- we think they may be the best in the country! Covered (16'x16' dome canopy) & uncovered, with a tent platform, sinks, water, stainless steel worktable, electrical hookup, lit pavilion, picnic table, fire ring, charcoal grill, storage locker- they are pretty awesome! Travel safe & have a wonderful journey! Cheers! Your La Junta K

Very nice, great management. Clean tent sight, prices a bit high, but the added amenities at the site were top notch and impressive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words! Our newly remodeled tent sites each have sinks, electrical outlets, lighting, counter workspace, tent platform (premium sites are covered), fire ring, charcoal grill, storage locker, picnic table, grass & shade - we're very proud of them! Travel safe & have a great fall season! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Everything was perfect. Close to businesses as well as quiet camping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow! Thank you, thank you! We have been working hard for over two years to make many improvements, yet we often feel that we have so much more to do! Your words are kind to our hearts - thank you! Be safe & have a terrific summer of camping! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

bathroom/shower were very clean and the office/store well stocked and staff friendly. guessing storm recently as kids fun area was deflated and sitting in mud. My tent site was great and clean but lights from Wal-Mart came through fence all night and could hear their delivery truck's

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words. While the closeness of Walmart is generally a convenience, the night lights are pretty bright. We have planted a row of trees & tall junipers which, over time, should provide a nice sight & sound barrier for both the tent sites and west side of our campground. Travel safe & have fun! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Helpful staff! Fun place for kids in the heat

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you and were glad your kids had fun in the sun! Have a great summer of making camping memories with your family! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team!

Campground is very good. Staff is excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Close proximity to the railroad can make for some noisy nights.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words - they mean a lot! Even though the campground has been here for nearly 70 years, the railroad has been here a lot longer...! They do go through all the time, but at least they don't blow their horn in our section too often!! Have a most excellent summer of camping! Your La Junta KOA Team!

Had a lovely time, site was clean and well organized. Had a really nice chat with Brad the owner, he was so friendly and had a lot really good suggestions for the rest of my road trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your very kind words! We hope the rest of your trip was wonderful & safe! Cheers from your La Junta KOA Team ... and Brad!

Friendly, enthusiastic staff. Clean facilities. Improvements at tent sites great. A group reserved the recreation room for three solid days total, but used it very little. That kept other guests from taking advantage of the recreation room.
Apr 24, 2018
Wish there was a restroom near the back of the campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great suggestion - thanks! We have thought about adding one by the swimming pool/playground/tent area, which would be more than halfway back. Continuous improvement... EXCELLENT! Safe travels - Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

This KOA had everything we needed for an off-season stay. They are working hard to get ready for the summer.

You sure got that right! Thank you for your kind comments. Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

Best WiFi of any campground I've stayed in across the country!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

AWESOME! This spring, 2018, we will also have the best tent sites anywhere... We want to provide the very best guest experience possible - thank you for the encouragement! Cheers & travel safe! Your La Junta KOA Team

We had a great stay! Everyone was nice & quiet. The park was kid, dog & wifi friendly; the restrooms/showers were very clean. The new owners have planted a lot of trees & fencing and are improving their playground, tent & RV sites. Wonderful staff! More grass would be nice; could use better signage on highway. Pool & prices were fair.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WoW! Thank you for your kind words. We are working hard everyday to improve the park, and agree that we need to work on our signage. We are lucky to have a wonderful team to work with! Travel safe & please come back & see our improved tent sites - Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

I was not informed the tent sites were under construction. I paid for a piece of grass behind the bathroom building under a light. Smelly, noisy. Ended up going down the road and paid another $70 for a hotel room. Dishonest site. Did not offer refund. Don't do businesses with this location!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that things did not work out for you. Perhaps you forgot that we had informed you of our tent site improvement work, that we were relocating you to our tent overflow space by our Rec Room which you said was fine after declining our offer of a cabin, & that you moved your tent to behind our very clean bathrooms for several hours before leaving & not saying anything to us. Travel safe!

The nearby train tracks made for a pretty noisy night. Additionally, I would have expected the designated tent site to be grass covered. Instead it was a mix of grass, weeds and gravel (mostly gravel). At least the restrooms were clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. While we are not terribly proud of our current tentsites, we beg to differ about their being mostly gravel. Anyhow, we just started our tent site upgrade project & they are going to be great, with covered sites, covered sink & workspace, electrical outlets, lighting, charcoal grill & sprinkler system so it can be all grass! We invite you to come back & check them out!

The only negative was the WIFI. It was slow and did not work well on the edges of the facility.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback & we are on it! We want to have the best WiFi of any campground & are working with our local vendor to improve the signal on the edges - you are right on! Thanks for staying with us & have a fun summer of tenting! Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Very welcoming and clean! Owner and staff couldn't be better!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow! Thank you for them mighty kind words-they are super encouraging! However (& this is the owner writing), I beg to slightly disagree-we can be better. Our staff is very good most of the time & great much of the time. We are very fortunate to have awesome people on our team & we want to be great all the time! We call it "continuous improvement", both for our people & our park. Thanks & Cheers!

NICE BATHROOMS I'd stay again.

We're glad you liked our bathrooms! Come back anytime, ya hear! Have a terrific summer of travel - cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

Mosquitoes were terrible. Clubhouse supposed to be open until 10 pm but was locked. Train track across the road was noisy all night. Said it had full kitchen but was only a toaster and microwave. Showers and bathrooms were great, though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The bugs are bad due to an usually wet spring. The clubhouse is open until 8 but can be used later by request. It also has a oven, range top, fridge, and sink. We're glad you liked the bathrooms & showers, though! Have a great summer and be safe. Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

The managers and campers were nice. Bathrooms excellent. But the price was high for a tent camper and there were lots of lights at night. Location was next to Wal-Mart. Lots of mosquitos.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of upgrading our tent sites & mistakenly charged you the wrong rate. We apologize & have issued a refund. With the unusual amount of spring rain we have had, the mosquitos have been bad-the city is now spraying for them. Safe travels - cheers!

Overall, one of the best places we have stayed on our 4 month trip so far. The staff were very kind and helpful and all of the falicilities were clean and well maintained.

They are working very hard to update the facilities for tent-campers and I appreciate their knowledge of the area. Very comfortable!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We want our tent camping area to be the best anywhere, along with our WiFi, and they soon will be! We will have covered platforms, electricity & water, a storage locker & more! Thanks for recognizing our efforts to be better. Have a great summer & travel safe! Cheers! Your La Junta KOA Team

So glad I was able to get a site for a couple of nights. Very busy Campground. well-maintained. Somebody in the ladies bathroom likes the color purple. Lol. It’s refreshing! Plenty of hot water great showers. The girl that checked me in was very helpful I didn’t get her name

We only stayed for one night and were able to get a deluxe cabin. The cabin was nice, clean, and had everything you would need. The propane grill provided did the job, wish they had a grill brush though. The fire rings were nice, but I would recommend buying your wood elsewhere. I purchased $14 dollars worth and they dropped off 13 tiny pieces, it burnt up rather quickly. All in all I probably would only stay there in a pinch with my camper, but the cabin was nice for short notice.
