This is a nice campground for children with a nice pool and other activities like a life sized chess and checker board. It is a couple of miles outside of town and there is no trolley service from the campground to town so if you are not pulling a car you have to unhook frequently. (we were spoiled in Durango) We rented a Jeep for a few days to make it easy to get around to both NP's and town without unhooking frequently. The site is very level and really beautiful but one major problem is mosquitos. The town has been taken over this year due to the high water according to many towns people we talked to. The campground is near the Colorado River making the mosquito issue worse. We can not eat outside if the RV for dinner or breakfast without bug spray or long pants and long sleeves. On a brighter note the area is amazing. I highly recommend hiking the Fiery Furnace hike in Arches NP if you are physically able. It is a very challenging hike with lots of rock scrambling. Great fun for the kids.
United is a fun campground. The Durango Silvertin train goes right through the campground (starting at 8am) and does blow a whistle, so if you like to sleep in, this place isn't for you. It was great for us. It is a bit congested, your neighbor is very close, but other than that, really great! Wi-Fi works great. The kids were able to smash pennies on the train tracks and ride bikes through the campground. The Town Trolly service makes stops at United every 20 minutes from 7am - 10pm and it is a short ride to the main part of town. Views are nice depending on your site. Some condos have been built close to the site impeding views that used to be here (15 years ago). Bathhouses were clean, roads were wet down twice a day to deal with the dust issue, and overall we had a great time. I give it a 9 due to the congestion issue.
This is a clean beautiful little campground on the river. The owners are very nice and love to get feed back on how to improve the campground. They are currently working on building a camp store and are actively improving a "community center" with games, TV, fireplace and BBQ area. There are different cost levels of sites from basic to premium (on the river). They do charge $4 additionally for each child. (A general campground practice I really don't understand unless there are activities specifically lead for children.) Our site was on the river and $35.50 but, when all was said and done came to $46.46. It is close to Salida a large town where you can get provisions if needed. Rafting is also near by. Wi-Fi works just fine through a network. The bathrooms and laundry areas were clean. We were just passing through the area and it was getting late and we found it! I would stay again as it is cute, the people are lovely and it is close to Royal Gorge and The Great Sand Dunes. I give it a 9 for the added child fee.
We stayed here to be close to St. Louis. It is a bit of a drive to the city. It is very close to Six Flags and Rt. 66 attractions. It was clean and mainly level with full hook ups. There was a clean pool and play area for the kids. It is very near to the highway and a major cargo train so it is a bit noisy at night. The bathrooms in the busy part of the morning could have used a bit more attention.
All sites are pull through with full hookups, relatively level, showers and laundry are very clean and well kept. It is a quick ride to Cripple Creek the gold mines and close to Pike's Peak region. There is a nice hot tub and a small playground for the kids. We did miss a pool at this KOA. We did enjoy our stay at the Mile High KOA!
This was our first time visiting Old Cedar. It is an old time family campground with various types of sites which include lakeside, wooded or full sun sights. Lots of fun available for the kids. The grounds are old, and many of the amenities are in need of repair such as the mini golf and game room areas. The bathrooms / showers were in terrible condition and needed repair and to be kept cleaner in general. On a better note the staff was great; friendly, helpful and very tolerant with the constant many excited children in and out of the camp store. The planned activities were lots of good ol' fashion fun, and the major patriotic holidays go off with a literal bang with a cannon shot and the Star Spangled Banner. We had a great time overall. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 children.
