We really enjoyed our stay here - excellent paved sites and hook-ups, clean, new facilities, friendly staff, and a great location for exploring Kansas City. We will make this a base anytime we are in KC.
This facility jumped to the top of our list of favorites the minute we pulled in. Fantastic facility, great sites, friendly and helpful staff, and a free shuttle to the casino with its restaurants all made this a wonderful place to stay. We also felt it was a good value and look forward to visiting again.
We were very disappointed in this park after reading the good reviews. The sites were okay - many treed pull-throughs with a comfortable amount of space between them - and we appreciated the open field and the dog run while walking our dogs. But the bathroom facilities were awful - exposed pipes, peeling paint, broken tile, rotting drywall - and were not cleaned every day. Many of the seasonal campers were not the most welcoming, either. For the rate this campground charges, we expected much nicer - or at least well-maintained and cleaner - facilities.
Very nice, well-maintained small city campground just blocks from downtown Golden. The staff was very friendly, and we enjoyed the scenic and short walk to downtown Golden. It's not the easiest campground in which to get a reservation, but it's well worth it if you're able.
After reading the excellent reviews on this site, we made an online reservation for three nights (we didn't receive a confirmation but had to call for one). Upon arriving and paying for three nights, we were assigned a different site than we had originally been given. We were escorted to the new site - a corner back-in site between a motorhome and tent - and discovered a large tree growing alongside the site that would have severely scratched our aluminum Airstream had we tried to back in. We asked the young lady who escorted us to the site if she could check to see if any other sites were available. She said she would and drove off in a golf cart. After waiting over ten minutes for her to return, we proceeded back to the office, where she rudely told us we should have tried to back in anyway, there were no other sites available (even though the campground was about 60% full), and that she had not intended to come back to tell us that. We explained that if they could not accommodate our rig, we would be happy to get a refund and make other plans. Another employee then claimed that the site would accommodate us; we explained we measured it, found the new clearcoat on the Airstream would be severely scratched if we tried to back in, and we would be happy to have a refund and move on if they didn't have any other sites available. To make a long story short, she refused to refund all three nights - keeping the first night's fee - and was very rude, explaining she couldn't make any decisions without the owner. The customer service was the absolute worst we've ever experienced. Another guest in the office at the same time told me outside he had a similar experience and that experiences like that were common there but that there was little choice in the Leadville area so one had to live with it. We didn't and moved on to Breckenridge. On top of that, the place looked really, really run down. Weeds were growing everywhere; the sites were uneven, overgrown, and shoddy; the women's bathroom (checked while we were waiting) had mud tracked all through it and was generally dingy. Overall, it was a highly aggravating experience at a depressing place, and we reached the point where we just wanted to get out of that place whether our money was refunded or not.
This wonderfully quiet campground features one of the prettiest small streams we've ever seen in a campground. The sites are short and necessitate unhooking the tow vehicle and parking it either next to or in front of the trailer, and the bathrooms are very, very simple. However, nothing beats having the windows open at night in a hollow in the Blue Ridge Mountains with a rushing stream just feet from your trailer. My only comment would be to add more gravel to a few of the sites, particularly where rainwater has washed the gravel down to sand. Friendly staff, quiet campers, and a pleasant experience.
This KOA was very clean and well-maintained with average to slightly smaller than average site sizes. The staff was very, very pleasant, and the bathrooms and campstore were very clean and well-maintained. We would highly recommend it as a campground for passing through Washington.
While the bathrooms were pleasant and clean, and the campstore well-stocked, the roads and sites were absolutely horrible. We were extraordinarily disappointed at having to pay $30 to stay in a site in such poor condition that we actually had to unhook to level the trailer. The interior gravel roads were so poorly graded that our traveling partner actually bottomed out on his sewer connection while leaving and ripped off his termination cap. When we bought a new one at the campground store and told the employees the old cap had been torn off in a gulley in the road, they just shook their heads and acted as if they had heard it before. Perhaps 50 or more tons of gravel in the sites and roads would help, but until then, don't bother visiting, especially if you want to pull in to a level site and stay hooked up with the intention of just passing through.
