How does KOA stay in business? They are always ridiculously overpriced, and we've never seen one yet worth the premiums. Negatives - technically, wi-fi worked in there was a signal; however, practically it wasn't strong enough to load an email. They claimed cable, which was also technically true because they got several channels, but they didn't get any network stations (ABC, NBC, CBS) so we missed the Olympics. Our antenna didn't pick them up either. Water pressure was terrible, so we couldn't rinse our hair or even flush the toilet efficiently. Highway noise was loud at our site, but park was quiet. No 50 amp. Positives - nice shade trees and bricked patios. Several years ago we swore to never stay in KOA's ever again, but this was the only availability (there was another KOA close by, but it was even more expensive). This isn't a bad campground, but it's way overpriced and nothing justifies the premium.

Nice location close to Gunnison and Crested Butte. Lots of shade trees and friendly staff. Lots of longtime summer residents who added a nice benefit of experienced conversation about the local area and beautiful flower gardens that attracted a ton of hummingbirds. New owner was friendly and responsive to all comments (there was no wi-fi at our site due to the trees, which he was honest about, but good wi-fi was available at the pavilion). He's worked hard to revitalize this park and done a good job. They provided a free pulled pork dinner with a band that was great and over 100 people supported it with desserts and side dishes. A nice way to have everybody meet and enjoy each other. Recommended.

Extra friendly staff, right off exit, heated pool, good wifi, clean bathrooms, decent store and large level spaces. I didn't like that they list a $5 per child fee - but then didn't charge for them when we arrived which was honorable. Cable tv would be the only addition needed.
