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!

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!

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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

We enjoyed the stay at this KOA, the staff was great, friendly and very helpful. Especially the young man that checked us in. He was very helpful! The only thing we didn't enjoy about our stay was the neighbor we had on the first night, they arrived late and were very loud until about 12:45 am. And we didn't expect the train traffic. Being our first time in La Junta, they were loud, all nite

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback & we're sorry that you had a loud neighbor-we've found that most don't realize how loud they really are... & that applies to the trains as well! At least they rarely blow their horn at night, but they do rumble a bit! Have a great summer & travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Famil
Jul 24, 2016
Great personal service. I stayed in a tent site close to showers and toilets. The ice cream in the afternoon was a nice touch and moderately priced. They also make several passes to make sure the site all ok. It was for me!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Great campers make providing great service easy! Thank you for your kinds words & patronage - come back anytime! Have a wonderful summer & travel safe - Cheers! Brad, Wendee & Boys

Owner very friendly. Facility was very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you very much! If only we could get our kids to keep their bedroom as clean...! Have a wonderful summer & travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Loud train noise in the night (close to racks) and very buggy. Owner is very nice though and the pool, rec room, and bathrooms are super.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words! We are working with the city to spray for bugs on the outside of the park, as well as trying to improve the drainage where we can. It definitely can be buggy - campfires & tiki torches seem to help! Have a great summer & travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 16, 2016
Very good campgrounds. Nise showers and bathrooms. Close to shooting and restaurants. Only problem we had was the mosquitoes. Would stay in again if in the area. But we're a little pricey for tent camping with no water or electric.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice feedback. Yep, them mosquitoes can be nasty buggers! We are working to improve our tent camping, adding platforms & electrical hookups. We do have a big sink on our pool shack to serve tent campers & apologize if we didn't tell you about it. Travel safe! Cheers! Brad & Wendee

Tent site had unmowed grass, couldn't really find a decent spot for the tent, but bathrooms / showers were nice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. We are going to install woodchip-filled tent platforms to improve our tent camping facilities as well as electric hookups so campers can stay charged up. We invite you to stop by down the road - travel safe - & see our improvements later this summer. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
Jun 05, 2016
Rude. Wouldn't let us stay in a tent site with our 10'x4' teardrop,we don't need any hookups.i guessed because of the wheels on grass,but later saw a tent camper,with a tent but their car is parked right by the tent on the grass. But we were forced to pay $40 for a crappy site and for things we didn't need. Also they have a 10:00 check out. Didn't know till morning, and we didnt have time to showe

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hmmm...not sure really what to say here. The rate was $30.06 total; check-out is 12, which we always extend if possible when asked; & there is a fence between the grass & tent camper parking. We have reached out to this camper with no response but would still welcome a conversation. Cheers! Brad & W

Very clean park with good shower facilities. The swimming pool was clean and open for Summer. The grounds were recently leveled. I walked to Walmart while the kids enjoyed the playground and mini golf. We will be back!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you and we're glad your family enjoyed the stay! Are you friends of Ahnold Schwarzenhammer, the Terminator? He said he'd be back as well...! Have a great summer & travel safe. Cheers! Brad & Wendee

In the words of Elvis: "Well, uh, thankyouverymuch!" We can't forget "friendly campers", too! Travel safe & see you again. Cheers! Brad & Wendee
May 09, 2016
Very clean facilities!!! The kids loved the playground, pool, mini golf and horseshoes. The new owners have gone above and beyond to make this a great destination instead of just a quick over night stop. We walked to Walmart from our tent trailer several times. We ended up staying for a week.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us, and we are working to make our campground even better! The mini golf is new again after a long absence. Safe travels, and we look forward to having you back! Cheers! Brad & Wendee
