Ouray KOA

Ouray, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Luckily we had a "better than others" site. Dirty dusty roads, no Wi-Fi ever existed, no cable, no pool, one small/dirty hot tub. The "creek" is actually a drainage ditch. Low, low voltage during the warm afternoons:105 volts every afternoon. They do have a nice BBQ dinner with live entertainment on weekends. We would probably stay here if we come to Ouray again, because the campgrounds inside of Ouray are packed in like sardines.

Date of Stay:

Can't rate this campground a 10 because the roads and sites aren't paved, no pool, no hot tub, and terrible Wi-Fi. Reservations for a site are kind of hokey as some of the "buds" of the campground seem to get their same site year after year, but for the rest of us, these prime sites aren't available. Loved the relaxing river, the neighbors, the free firewood, the nice paths to walk your dog, and just generally sitting around your site.

Date of Stay:

This certainly isn't a "resort", or a place where a 10 rating is warranted. To me, a 10 rating would include paved sites or roads, not loose gravel. Also, there is virtually no grass, and where you walk your dog is full of stickers. Also, the Wi-Fi is terrible...just nonexistent. Nice pool, but only 3 loungers. Where are folks supposed to sit around the pool? We saw where some would set their towels on the loungers and then leave, and come back later to "claim" their seats. Close to Mesa Verde but Verizon signal very weak. It was our first time here, but most likely will be our last unfortunately, as we expected more.

Date of Stay:

If they had paved streets and sites, I would rate this park a 10. Great check-in (warm cookies given!), nice plants all around, level sites, nice hookups, good cable and Wi-Fi. Had a WONDERFUL dinner and breakfast there over the weekend. Nice watered lawns between sites, although the sites are somewhat close. One of the nicest mini-golf areas I have ever seen, with water features. Beautiful hot tub with a gazebo, and a nice pool with loungers. The office/store was stocked great with Honeyville honey!

Date of Stay:

The lady at check-in was wonderful and promptly gave us our KOA points discount. Was directed to a site with a paver patio. Cable was not good, and ABC was unavailable, maybe a total of 10 channels. Voltage got so high at night my EMS system on our motorhome tripped the power due to very high voltage. Fairly nice pool area, with loud screaming kids, but we were disappointed that the hot tub area was closed and it looked like it wasn't going to be fixed any time soon. We are repeat customers, and this was our worst visit due to issues with the hot tub and nonexistent Wi-Fi. By the way, TengoInternet is just horrible!

Date of Stay:

Pretty nice park. We are a repeat customer, but will probably stay somewhere else next time we are in San Antonio. There was an issue of young people coming in at night, and hopping the fence around the pool, and they drank beer and smoked pot while partying during the wee hours of the morning. Manager said this has happened before. The sites were fairly narrow, we had a deluxe site, and voltage was low, and they give you a sheet with a statement on it that the electricity "could go out anytime during heavy usage". Surprised to see this written statement. Very nice pool area.

First 10 I have ever given to an RV park. A park can't receive a 10 unless it has a nice pool, hot tub, workout room, paved streets, cement level pads, good cable TV, central utilities, and good Wi-Fi. This park has all this and more. The grass between sites is GOLF COURSE quality. Beautiful facility. We stayed in the Adults Only section.

Date of Stay:

We had a good pull through site, nice grassy areas, nice pull in area for check-in. We never felt unsafe as someone had posted. A limo came to pick us up for the Texan Steakhouse, and was set up painlessly at the front office. Good voltage and good cable.

Date of Stay:

Extremely nice and friendly owner. Red gravel sites with non-existent grass. Nice wide sites with fire rings at each site along with full hookups. Voltage was adequate. Website states "clearly marked trail." No trail to be found as there was many big piles of dirt all over the place where the "trail" was supposed to be. The hot tub was VERY nice, but they drained it and cleaned it on Friday night, so it wasn't available all day/night for Friday, but we used it a lot on the weekend, and it was nice and clean. They were appologetic about the unannounced draining, and we appreciate that. The location is 18 miles from town, so bring what you need! Yes, they truck in water, so be considerate and not use too much in this arid part of Colorado. One of the better campgrounds in the Colorado Springs area, and we will be back!

The management company is really horrible. In the 25 years of us visiting this park, none of the bad attitudes and bad management has changed. The check in person is curt (the same rude attitude for 25 years). The reservation person is curt. There is virtually no maintenance in the park except what the owners of the individual sites do to their own sites. The soap containers in the Men's bathroom have been empty for 25 years. (Seriously: they are always empty.) The hot tub was "broken." The site 205, we paid $75 for, was the worst site in the Park: pathetic for $75/night. Now the positives. All roads are paved, the sites are concrete and level, cable and internet worked good and the 50 amp service had good voltage levels. The pool was warm, and the bathroom was fairly clean. This park is the only park for 50 miles, and while it used to be a good 10 rated park 20 years ago, the management company doesn't take any pride in renting out owner's RV sites when they are available, or updating any of the facilities. We'll continue to visit because there is nothing else available, but GOSH it's waaaaay overpriced!!!

Date of Stay:

Very nice State Park with the best paved biking trails anywhere around. Mosquitos about ate us alive, so make sure you bring lots of repellent! Beach area is "ok" with a small parking lot. Cool retired Fort with some old gun turrets and buildings with a nice museum. Can't obviously give it a 10 because there is no pool or other amentities

Date of Stay:

Nice place for a stopover, good pull through sites with good utilities. The sites are very narrow and you open your door to your neighbor's sewer line. No emenities, so that means no pool or hot tub or views or anything.

Date of Stay:

This park was just a stopover on the way through, but ended up being one of the nicest parks we stayed at in several years. Some of the sites look like they are State Park type sites next to the beautiful creek. A very nice maintained Nature trail is in the park, and we loved the nice clean pool area too. The landscaping was over the top with nice bark chips spread around the trees/garden areas. The sites are nice and level, and the hookups were clean and central to the pull through sites

This is a straight up 10 campground with a few issues to knock it down to an 8 rating on this visit. We have stayed here before, and normally stay in a "spa" site, and since our last visit, these spa sites have been been nicely updated to include a lattice fence around the hot tub for somewhat of a privacy feel. Nice wood burning fire pits have been added to the spa sites too. The pad is concrete and we were able to fit our 35' RV in the back in spa site. The electrical/cable TV hookup is at the front of the site, requiring us to use our satellite as our cable wasn't long enough. The sewer is at the rear of the site. The patios on the spa sites are pavers and a nice wrought iron table and chairs were there. Upon arrival, we requested an hour or so late checkout on our last day, and the older lady rudely told us, "No, we don't allow that anymore." I asked if we could if we paid extra, NO she said. I asked if we could speak to the manager, she said NO. I asked when is the manager going to be here, she said I don't know. We left and went to our site, but came back later to find the manager to report her rude behavior. He said they charge $3/hour for late checkouts on the RV sites. Well what do you know, they DO have late check outs! It amazes me with so many people wanting jobs, that KOA employs some of the people they do, and then they turn down revenue for the franchise owner just because they are lazy and have a bad attitude. Oh: the pool was empty, strange!

Date of Stay:

3 overnight pull through sites. No pool, no hot tub, no coffee, no store, no amenities. Sewer hookup at the very back of the pull through sites. Lots of park models. All gravel/dirt sites. Quiet, as the Show Low police drove through occasionally.
