Having just stayed at a very nice KOA before this one was a huge dissapointment. The tent area is actually not inside the campground but outside by the playground. It appears to be just an afterthought to make some extra money. It borders a gravel road that becomes busy around 3am. Maybe because the local crack house is right across from the campground. Would not recommend to tent campers!

Only problem was a massive amount of mosquitos. The campsite was clean, the staff was friendly, and the facilities were well maintained.

The hosts were very friendly on check-in, and accommodated all my special needs. The bathrooms and showers were nicer than my club back home. Only negative was some guests that started a smoky fire next to my tent site and went to bed...

We arrived late as tent campers. The tent area is not well marked and we were not sure which place to put our tent. This is the first KOA that we have frequented where the staff was not very visible or friendly. We have stayed at KOAs all over the west and the staffs are usually noticiable and greet you.

simple cpers are cast away. I went to KOA but that changed: People with trailers or motor-homes ARE WELCOME but simple tents are put away.NOT EVEN INSIDE THE CAMPGROUND! $35 for a small 4-tent place facing town-bckgrd on space for 6 tents. Very UNPLEASANT manager. KOA 4 rich. 4 SHOWERS and sinks TOTAL for such a camp! in the restroom! It sis a shame. CHANGE THAT. Camping is sthing else. Nver again

Des séparations plus nettes des emplacements de tentes seraient appréciées. On a l impression que les emplacements sont a l extérieur du KOA. Il gaudrait signaler aux propriétaires de chiens que ce nest pas la dog mess area. Laverie ouverte h24 très pratique. BIEN place pour le black canyon. Proche du centre ville. Un spa bien agréable malheureusement interdit aux moins de 14 ans.

Nice poeple but very poor wifi and no fire place for tent sites.


There is a fire pit under the pavillion and we do have portable fire pits you just need to ask at our office and we will bring one to you

We were very please with everything, very friendly and helpful attendants and very clean facilities.

See email. Management & staff behavior & demeanor at this facility not conducive to my family recommending or returning to the Montrose Rv park.

The tent "sites" are a disorganized mess. There were so many tents that there wasn't even room for us to set up our own tent and we had to sleep in our car. The Wi-Fi wouldn't connect and there was barely room for us to park. I don't even know what we paid for at that point.

The bathrooms were nice. But they changed the door code on the men's bathroom while we were there, and they didn't notify us, so my husband couldn't use the bathroom until the office opened the next morning. We didn't know there was contact information on the door of the office. I wish they had pointed that out to me. Also, the tent sites weren't defined. And quiet hours weren't observed.

Arrived at 6pm and started putting up our tent. It seemed that there was a corn festival in Montrose which caused all hotels booked out. As a result, the tent site was a full, even a little crowded. The restroom was clean and staff super helpful and friendly. There were quite some mosquitoes around dawn time, which was a downside.

Very good location, close the mian street of Montrose. Clean bathroom, kind personnel.

One clap of thunder, barely audible prompted the closure of the pool on a hot Saturday afternoon. When asked how they decide when to reopen, they weren't sure. Tent camping area very nice. No rhyme or reason as to where one should set up or park. Kind of a free-for-all.


I am sorry but if we hear thunder we close the pool for everyone's safety

Great KOA to be. Clean showers and bathrooms!

I feel the tent site spaces were an after thought. When I made reservations on line there was nothing that said that there's only a 3 day stay for tent sites. So if we are to ever stay here again it will have to be a cabin or hopefully we'll have an RV. Otherwise it wasn't too bad.

We called and reserved a tent space, but when we arrived we did not have a place to put our tent. The spaces were not easily identified, so we had to pitch our tent in front of the play area. Apparently this has been this way for a while. It is a shame because we rely on them for a safe place to go at the end of the day. Very frustrating!

We had a lovely stay and everybody was so helpfull. The tentsite was flat and a perfect place to set up your tent.
Jul 02, 2017
Good location. Easy in and out. Tent camping area is grassy, level, and close to all the amenities. Staff looked at me strange when I said I was cooking my dinner at my campsite. Overall, great stay.

Nice KOA, with a good layout.
Jun 12, 2017
Very friendly staff, fluffy grassy tent site, clean restrooms. It felt a little bit strange, that the tent site was outside of the KOA property with no fence to the neighbourhood.
Jun 11, 2017
The tent sites at this campground are barely that. You are just given a spot in a strip of grass on the opposite side of the fence from the rest of the campsite. For the price I was expecting something better, especially since there is better camping in the area with individual sites and access to running water for far less.

This campground was great! Clean! And very well kept! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We had a great stay at this Koa.

This is one of the best KOA's I ever stayed in. The host was helpful and nice. This place is supper clean, all of it just shined with pride all around. I should just move there. What a memory they have gave me.

1 nite tent camping on a lawn area. No firepits! Otherwise seemed nice.


We do have portable fire rings you can request one in the office but they are a on a first come first serve basis as we have only 10

Especially nice tent camping spot compared to some that I have stayed at

The reason we stay at KOA is for the shower and flushing toilet. The Montrose KOA had ONE shower and toilet for the entire campground!ONE!Reason being the showers were being remodeled, which was in progress for 3 months. This was NOT disclosed upon reservation. I feel cheated as I paid full price for the site. I wish I did not stay at this site as it was my worst KOA experience. BEWARE campers!


We are very sorry for your bad experience at our KOA but we had to remodel our restrooms they were out dated and needed to be done.
Mar 29, 2017
The host was extremely friendly and welcoming and I would surely come back if I visit Montrose again! I just wish we had the showers and restrooms available all day instead of from 9-4.30. I do understand this was off-season but having to use the porta-potty was definitely an inconvenience.

always a clean nice convenient place to stay. bathrooms always clean and nice. suggest that people with animals are reminded where to potty their pets.... and not in the grassy area where the tents are pitched. thank you
Oct 03, 2016
Very friendly staff. Great showers. Covered palvilion meant I had enough light to cook when I forgot my camp light. We tent camped and took advantage of the provided grills to cook in the pavilion. Nice place for a fire as well.

Loved it!

We got to our tent site before 8:00pm. Talked to a great host and connected. We love the grassy area to set up tent.
Sep 07, 2016
Very well kept, attractive campground with clean facilities (pool, laundry room, covered picnic area with grill). We stayed in a tent, and were quite content with the undifferentiated tent sites. The grass was well maintained and there was a picnic table available at the site for our use The only negative is the lack of benches in the individual shower areas for organizing possessions.

Quiet campground with clean facilities.
Sep 05, 2016
Tent spaces are open plan in a grass area we arrived late and as a result we didnt have a parking spot near our tent nor a picnic table. Women's Showers were clean. Men's room needed attention. The pool area and laundry looked good but we didn't use them.

The hosts were friendly and accomodating. The service was prompt. I was pleased with the cleanliness and condition of the facilities. It would be nice if every KOA campground could have walking/jogging tracks around each location.

Very friendly staff & beautifully kept grounds. We enjoyed our stay so much we came back on our return trip.

Great campground, very friendly staff!

Tent area was on back side of an alley, in a grass area surronding the playground. Kids played until midnight. Police came to a fight between camp host and neighboring house. Lots of foot traffic from non guests and guests.

Very nice facility with friendly staff. Tent camping sites need some sort of enclosure to help feel they are a part of the KOA family of kampers at this location. Maybe a fence to help feel you are on the property. Cars were flying in and out of the gravel driveway during the nights of our stay. Otherwise it is,a great location and nice place.
