Just Don't! Grossly overpriced. Several test holes for drainage were about 15 feet from our slideouts. At 7 p.m., without warning, a skid steer (tractor) backfilled the holes sending billows of dust against our rig. I'd just had my TV detailed. Took pictures of a guy standing right at our trailer giving directions to the machine operator who came within ten or so feet from us. This went on for nearly a half an hour. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pleasant and helpful at office. Disappointed that price a gone up from previous reviews. Very open, only water/electric, we doubled on a site and had to use the 20Amp. Plenty of open space to site rigs of any size. Go carts not currently operating. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good for a stopover. Restrooms & Showers is an over statement. There is one private bath in a building. It seemed clean except of the mold and mildew. It's a tub with shower, toilet and sink, small. The Site is more dirt than gravel but it was level. The park roads are the same. There is no Internet. We had a street light right beside us. There are two in the park. We didn't notice and road noise although the park is right beside US 160. Staff was friendly. We stayed for two nights on our way to South Fork. Park is up for sale. Good stop for the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Hosts were very friendly and offered a pancake breakfast, that was more like homemade than some others offered at other KOA Parks. Sites had shade and some privacy. Just about across the road from a wildlife refuge or viewing area. In August we saw several hawks, but not too many large mammals that you might see at other times in the year. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed 2 nights at this park. It was very quiet and we didn't hear any road noise. Staff members were very friendly and answered any questions we had. The Wi-Fi was good too. There's nothing fancy or resort like at this park, but they did have a heated swimming pool and the park was clean. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here so we could visit Sand Dunes National Park. When we arrived, it was almost 10:00pm. True to their word, there was our reservation taped to the door. Just as we were getting ready to find our spot, two of the folks that work at the KOA showed up and helped out. We ate breakfast both Saturday and Sunday at the KOA tent. The cost was $5.00 per person and included all you can eat pancakes and sausage. Our site was pretty level, it had a slight tilt to the left. The KOA was very clean and quiet. We were not able to hear any road noise during the night. Their Wi-Fi was solid. We rated this place an 8 because while it was a good, clean place to stay there was nothing really special to warrant a higher rating. If we go back through Alamosa again we would have no problem staying at the Alamosa KOA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My wife and stayed at Alamosa KOA on 8/13 and 8/14/12. The park was satisfactory relating to all the facilities we used. We stayed in a pull-through site (42 foot motorhome with tow). On 8/14 we requested and were granted a check-out extension from 11 am until 12 noon on 8/15. At 11 am on 8/15 we were approached by a KOA employee who demanded to know when we were leaving. I explained that we had received a one hour extension. He very rudely stated that check-out time was 11 am and it didn't matter who had granted an extension. He arrogantly advised that someone else was waiting on our spot. I asked what time check-in was and he advised that they didn't have a check-in time: it was when a camper arrived. We left the campground at 11:45 am. I stopped by the office and asked what fee I owed for their 45 minutes I had used. She stated that no fee was due but they were not advised of a time extension for us. It should be noted that at 11:45 am, multiple pull-through sites were available along with maybe 40 other vacant sites. No one was at the campground waiting for any site. My wife and I will never return to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was okay for an overnight stop, we have been to better KOAs. The majority of their pull throughs are straight not at an angle which makes it tough on a 40+ rig with tow getting in and out. The WiFi a was useless at our site. We wouldn't stay here for more than an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA campground. Folks that run it are friendly and helpful. This is the third year we have stayed here, they just put in a new well and pump house, the sulfur smell to the water is gone. The campground is clean, mainly overnight stays. Will stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good campground. As usual for a KOA a little pricey for what you get. Sites are level with good hookups. Sites are close together as is typical for a commercial park. Has a small heated pool. A few trees but very little grass. Wi-fi worked good. Friendly staff with escort to site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived late and left early, so everything was locked up. Our site info was taped to the door, along with a half dozen others. Site was level and long enough. As usual for KOA, expensive for a water/electric site in the boondocks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best Alamosa has to offer. Friendly host and escort. Sites are fairly level and long enough. Typical desert setting. Quiet and clean. Good for stopover or visiting the Alamosa area. Like most KOA's just a bit high. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park with very friendly and helpful staff and owners. The sites are a little small, but well maintained and pull-through. Nice pool area along with recumbent bikes for the kids, and also a dirt bike trail adjacent to the camp. There is a sizeable dog run! We will definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Very friendly owners and staff. Site was level, hookups worked fine. I want to rate this park higher, but without any cable TV or hot tub the $36 rate seemed high. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a simple, but beautifully located campground. Mountain views. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They even let us leave our travel trailer for part of the day when we went to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park (a must see!). When we did not get back to pick it up as quickly as we planned, they called to check on us. If you are in the area, we highly recommend this KOA. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, well maintained older KOA. Lots of room and good location. Owners very helpful, some sites could have the sewer connections a little more sunken in the ground. We would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great stopover park. Easy in and easy out on HWY 160 about 4 miles east of Alamosa. Very friendly and helpful staff. Big pull throughs in the back of the park. Quiet country setting. Verizon wireless worked good here. Will stop here again. Park closes the end of October and opens the 1st of May. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very friendly and helpful about the area. Site was level and easy to get in and out of. My only issue during my stay was with the laundry, as the washer I chose worked very slowly. I was told the next morning they were having problems with that washer. It would have been nice to know ahead of time with a sign on that washer. Other than that one issue, I enjoyed my stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a run of the mill KOA. The property is not the least bit attractive but it served it's purpose as a one night stop over on our way from Great Sand Dunes to Durango. The water smelled strongly of sulfur so you wouldn't want to fill your water tank with it. The sites are all gravel and appear to be relatively level. Space is abundant so big rigs can maneuver easily. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean. They advertise great mountain views but there's so much clutter between the campground and those mountains that the scenic view is a bit laughable. The staff was friendly and helpful. This property is about 20 mins from Great Sand Dunes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We we here as part of a group for three nights; otherwise we would not have stayed at a KEEP ON ADDING (KOA). At $38.39 we were told we were getting the discount rate. The wi-fi was very spotty and on a scale of 1 to 19 it was a 3. It is a typical over priced KOA, clean and every thing worked except the wi-fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate quoted was with a Value Kard. Nice tenting area with wind break/privacy walls. Several cabins. Well kept. Very friendly personnel. Gravel sites, level. Your typical dry western campground with grass struggling to survive and many dirt areas where it hasn't. Mature trees but widely spaced so satellite access shouldn't be a problem especially in the newer area at the back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New owners (<1 yr) who've expanded the campground. The new sites are okay, but lacking in any vegetation. If you go, even in a "big rig", stay near the front. Although the spaces are smaller, they're much nicer with mature vegetation. Great location! Very friendly owners! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, nice staff, escorted to our spot, level, full hook-ups, clean pool, close to highway so we heard sirens one night, easy drive to Sand Dunes and Zapata Falls. We were happy and would stay here again. Price includes 50 amp and 3 kids. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is OK for a night or two. Our site was in the newest section, extra long pull throughs, big rig friendly. The gravel was new and not packed down yet but level enough, with full-hook up, 50 amp service. This is the nicest of all the other campgrounds that we saw in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has excellent WiFi and good water pressure. The laundry is clean and machines work well. The cost is reasonable. We did have 50 amp electric, but the electricity was not very good. Running any 2 appliances: a/c, coffee pot, heat pump, put the electricity gauge into the red. Don't know if the problem is the park or the utility company, but we didn't like the risk of damage to our appliances. This issue accounts for the rating of 8. Staff was friendly and the park was clean and convenient. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty typical KOA, but with lots of gravel (very little paved areas). Beautiful views to the north and northeast of Great Sand Dunes if you can get a spot there. Has a typical store, and a run down playground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed here for 3 nights because it is centrally located to what we came for: riding the train to the concert in the mountains and the Great Sand Dunes N.P. The park has plenty to keep the young ones busy with a pool, horseshoes, volleyball, nice playground and the best part is it's far enough away from the town to really be able to watch the sky at night. One night it was meteors and stars, the next it was beautiful lightning displays all around us. Warm days and cool nights were great when you're from Texas. The staff accommodated us by putting us in the most remote site with water and power so we could enjoy the skys at night. My grandsons talk about that more than anything else from our trip to Colorado. As far as the park, it is typical KOA with dirt and grass sites. Sometimes the dust was bad but not enough to complain about. This is our second time at this park and we will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All full hookup sites were taken when we arrived, so we had to take W&E. That would have been fine, but that row only had 30 amp electric. We struggled to get our rig powered back to the available amperage. We put the refer on gas and the water heater on gas. Ran only one AC, and still snapped the breaker. This still would have been fine, except for the rate. At $33 per night I would have thought we would have at least had 30 Amp. The owners do work hard to keep a nice facility, but some additional gravel to keep the dust down would be nice. It was quiet along the back, but the highway along the front could cause trouble for light sleepers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly low rates for a KOA. Most KOAs are $60 plus. Asked for a satellite friendly spot, but most of the full hookup sites are not. They refused to move us. Very muddy when it rains, which it did every day. I only stayed here because of the location close to Rio Grande Scenic Railroad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We got in very late about 9:30 PM but the owners left an envelope at the door of the office with directions to our site and a WiFi password. WiFi didn't work that night, but did in the morning. We left early the next morning so didn't see much of the park, it was a standard KOA and looked OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location for visiting the Great Sand Dunes NP. The view from our RV was wonderful of the mountain range and office folks were friendly; however, the staff working outside the office were extremely rude. When filling our propane, asked if anyone was inside. We replied "our cat" and were told, "I don't care about the cat." Didn't see that as a necessary response. Dusty roads and it would be nicer if it was paved or more gravel applied to prevent all the dust when anyone drove by the site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The gravel sites were level, bathrooms were clean, and the view of the mountains and sand dunes at their base was beautiful. It took us about 25 minutes to drive to the Sand Dunes, so the location of the campground was convenient. Staff and other campers were very friendly. Paved roads would be an improvement. Pool was always crowded with kids and adults. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the Great Sand Dunes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was "fair" for a KOA. The owner is very nice and is trying to improve the park, but a lot more work is needed. The sites are mostly dirt with a few rocks, just like the roads. The water pressure is only fair, about 45# at the faucet. If someone is next to you the pressure really drops. Put water in your holding tank and use your on board pump to get a decent shower. The laundry room was just refurbished so the machines all work well. The pool looked to be closed during our visit, although we did not try to use it. Many of the sewer connections are too high for the level of the site making the dumping process a bit tricky. I would stay here again if I were going back to Great Sand Dunes National Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While the owner was very friendly, the campground its self was less than exciting. Any number of sites that are permanent. Roads were dirt or if you tried real hard, gravel. It was probably the worst KOA I've been in. Would I stay here again, probably, since it is the best of the worst. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Average park. Beautiful views, gravel/dirt level pull through sites. The water tasted great! 50A electrical was marginal. Our sewer line drained poorly. There is no place to walk or exercise without driving 5 miles back into town. This park is awful in heavy rain. The ground doesn't drain and turns into a oozy, gummy glue. Do not stay here if wet weather is expected. Wi-Fi was average speed and reliability. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have not had good luck with KOA's. We were delighted with this little jewel. The people were very friendly and helpful. The campground was very clean. The pool was clean and warm. The view from our campsite was mountains and the Great Sand Dunes National Park, 20 miles away. We would definitely return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical small KOA. This is the only real option when staying in Alamosa. OK stopover spot. Because it's in the desert, the campground roads are gravel and dusty. Facilities were clean. No landscaping to speak of. Will stay here again if we need to stay in Alamosa. The staff was good and they have a pancake breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Swimming pool in the middle of no place. Eight miles from Alamosa. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice Campground! There are very Clean Restrooms and Showers. We had a pull-through site that allowed us to have our 34ft motor home and 18ft toy trailer connected with room for our Jeep to also park at the site. The pool was clean. The office personnel were friendly and helpful with our questions (restaurant suggestions). The dog walk area is a nice off leash fenced in area. The fresh water does have a slight sulfur smell to it (just the area supply). We camped here in a Motorhome.
My grandsons and I stayed here only one night on our way home but it was a very nice stay. All facilities were clean but could be larger. Pool and playground was nice and was quiet after 8PM. Management was very nice and accommodating. The sky that night was clear and we stayed outside looking at all the stars and satellites. My boys will never forget that sight. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical small, tight KOA. This is the only real option when staying in Alamosa. OK stopover spot. Because it's in the desert, the campground roads are gravel and dusty. Facilities were clean. No landscaping to speak of. Will stay here again if we need to stay in Alamosa. We camped here in a Motorhome.
FANTASTIC campground in a BEAUTIFUL setting, only ~15 miles from The Great Sand Dunes National Park in Alamosa, CO. Staying at this campground has been a Mother's Day tradition (me and the kids while the wife is traveling with her girl friends) for SEVERAL years. We REALLY like this KOA, and with the new pool (which wasn't open yet - should be open now), it's even better! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park owner was very friendly. The sites were narrow and short. There was not a lot of room in our site or the access road to the site. They had a strange set up for 50 amp and we had difficulty unpluging. We would probable stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located on main thoroughway, but backed up far enough from the road ensuring a quiet night's sleep. Owner (Gene) is friendly and on-site. A salt-water pool and a Christmas store are added features. Great Sand Dunes National Park is about 26 miles away. Verizon cell signal was adequate. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground with good services and friendly staff. We stayed a few nights while doing some geocaching and visiting the Great Sand Dunes. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is essentially in the desert area of the San Luis Valley. It is close to highway 160 but there is very little road noise. The wind blew the entire time we were there. The park could use some mowing and general manicuring of the sites. The wifi worked well. We will stop in again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small, quiet, and well-kept park with easy on and off access and no traffic, train or other obnoxious noises that plague so many other parks. The open, sparsely treed grounds in the 7000’ San Luis valley are surrounded by beautiful mountain backdrops and house several rows of mostly level pull through sites, with a combination of full, 50-amp hookups (but only 4), full, 30-amp hook-ups, several water and electric, a handful of tent sites on the fringes of the park and the inevitable KOA cabins. Each site is equipped with tables, fire rings and grills. Navigating into some of the sites might be tight-turning for some of the biggest, big-rigs but we managed our 37’ fifth wheel & F-350 pickup with very little problem. The park has on-site propane, free WiFi, on-site owners and managers, a friendly, helpful staff and offers an escort to the site. The large, clean office building houses a cute all-year Christmas store and modest gift and supply store with grocery necessities and limited emergency RV supplies. The generously-sized, gravel spaces are separated by wide strips of lawn and a combination of young and mature trees. The playground is appropriately furnished and was enjoyed thoroughly by the many young campers using it during the Memorial Day week we were here. The lovely looking pool was undergoing seasonal maintenance for the upcoming summer. The weather was still a bit too chilly for frolicking in the water. This is a great home-base to visit the Great Sands Dunes National Park, Zapata Falls, Alamosa Wildlife Refuge, Rio Grande Scenic Railroad and the Cumbres-Toltec Railroad. Now, the bad news: The Park has side-by-side hookups. We were on an end, so we were not forced to share our front yard with a neighbor, not so with most other sites. The water pressure and voltage fluctuated quite a bit. The water pressure falling to 20 and the electric mostly never reaching 110. The single dumpster is by the office and certainly not convenient to all the campers. This highly-priced park offers no discounts, only their own KOA card which provides a 10% discount. We secured our reservations several months before our visit and would highly recommend the same for others: especially for any summer holiday week. If we return to the area we would most likely return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has a very nice setting, with great views of the mountains. Got a spectacular sunrise! The staff (owners?) are very nice. We were not at all bothered by the highway noise, as most sites are far enough away from the road. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
