This small city owned campground is a gem. We enjoyed watching all the rafting and tubing activity on Clear Creek. They don't take advance reservations. Call at 7am on the day you plan to arrive and they will let you know if they have a space for you. It was full every night of our 9 night stay. You can stay up to two weeks. It's a great location for everything in Golden, plus the mountain drives, and Denver are just short trips.
This is truly a resort. So many amenities, perfect for family reunions as there are nice cabins too and a big pavilion. Kids were catching fish in the little lake. Our site was big, lovely cottonwood trees, nice pool. Very professional staff. We highly recommend this KOA.
This park is owned and operated by a family. No pride of ownership shows here. Fences falling down, large potholes in the roads, just poorly maintained. The price is a rip off, but we were there during Frontier Days. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The shuttle now costs $5 a person round trip. We probably won't stay here again.
This is one of the few Colorado campgrounds that honor Passport America members in July. We stayed here 3 nights..best deal we've found. They have river sites, but we weren't fortunate to get one. Maybe next time. Very friendly staff. Big cottonwoods shade the sites.
Passport America rate. RV park sits up high and has a great view of mountains in the distance. Can even see the Royal Gorge Bridge. The new owners are in the process of getting the park shaped up. They have several vintage campers and cars which are very neat. The pool is great for a refreshing dip. The Wi-Fi was very slow at our site. No TV reception without a dish. We enjoyed the Colorado Prison Museum in nearby Canon City and also the Skyline Drive.
We really liked this campground and would stay here again. The highlight was watching the Durango/Silverton train come right through the park several times a day. All the kids would get so excited as the train passed through. I have a bunch of train pictures. Lots of nice day drives from here and the town of Durango is very nice. We stayed a week at United. We thought the rates were a little high but the campground was full.
I gave it a 9 only because there is no shade but this is a Class A facility. Neat and clean. Short walk to the loveliest indoor pool and hot tub we've ever seen. Free breakfast in the casino every morning. Oh yes, and we made enough from the slots to pay for one night of camping. The casino is well kept too and doesn't reek of smoke. All the employees are friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
Very nice park. Fellow campers were very friendly and many return to this park every summer from Texas and Oklahoma. Lots of bikers in the park but they came and went as quietly as they could. Definitely would stay here again.
