The water is very hard and the campground has made no effort to adjust the spray of the lawn sprinklers. After the first night, I was dismayed to find hard water spots ¾ way up the side of our motor home and covering the right side of our tow vehicle. I called the office and they basically didn't care. To make matters worse the sprinklers run every night. After two nights, the entire right side of our motor home was covered with hard water spots.

Quiet hours are 10:00 pm to 7:00 am. One local camper starts his loud diesel truck at 5:50 am and runs it for 15 minutes before departing.

Overall, this was a very unpleasant experience, especially considering what we paid for the stay-highly overpriced! We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

As full-time RVers, we have never experienced anything even remotely close to the degree of menacing behavior that the senior owner of Lakeside KOA inflicted upon my wife. She was simply asking why our guests were charged $26.00 for two toddlers to play on the playground. His response was hostile and threatening. He shouted insults at her as he followed closely behind her as she retreated from the office. I recommend that women do not enter campground office if the senior owner is present. When we filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, we discovered that BBB has lowered its rating of the KOA/Lakeside because the owners have failed to respond to previous customer complaints, and KOA/Lakeside is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau. The Lakeside KOA has disabled the online review feature on their corporate KOA website. We also learned that the campground food service cart is located atop the campground’s former sewage dump station. During the latest inspection (2012), the Larimer County Health Department rated food safety at the KOA/Lakeside as “Marginal.” The south-side of the campground is near an active asphalt plant and gravel quarries, with industrial noise/odors and heavy truck traffic commencing at dawn. I woke one morning to the pounding roar of a low-flying helicopter spraying insecticides on the corn field just 25 feet from our north-side camp site. The well water has a brown tint. There are occasional brown-outs during hot weather and power failures during electrical storms. Interior roadways are not paved. Verizon coverage is weak. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a reservation with this park but experienced an emergency with a 90 yr old mother in Kansas and had to make a fast trip back there. The manager was so compassionate that he debited our card for the remainder of our reservation. If you stay here be sure that you never have an emergency arise. The roads need to be watered down to control the dust and the grass has mostly dried up. We had our grandson visit one day but at a cost of $5.50 for 15 minutes of paddle boating ($22.00 an hour?) and equally exorbitant costs for mini-golf and biking, we didn't do very much. Something needs to be said about the fact that RVer's are not all wealthy and spending their kids inheritance. This park was once a friendly, well maintained park but compassion long ago went out the door at this KOA, and trying to reason with them is beyond their limited understanding. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This place was very disappointing. The KOA website depicts this as a very nice KOA; however, it was not. It appeared to be a work in progress with lots of construction waste lying in piles all over the cg. Entrance signage was almost non-existent with only 1 small non-lit sign on a post. Very unusual for a KOA. Roads were narrow and very dusty. This cg has a few very nice waterfront sites with shade, but these are booked far in advance. These are in stark contrast to the ho-hum regular sites that are very close together and have no shade at all. There were back-in sites around the perimeter of the cg, but these were occupied by long-term residents. On the plus side, the lake is very nice, and the mini-golf course is new and very neat. I would like to see this cg in a few years once the owners put more into it. Lots of potential, but there are better places out there, especially for the high cost of $42/night. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.
