Pueblo KOA

Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay:

First I will start with the positives. Excellent access if you are southbound on I-25, great friendly outgoing staff, easy to find, clean restrooms, and good little store. They make and will deliver to your site Hunt Brothers Pizza and chicken nuggets; they also have a small ice cream parlor in the store. They have a large gravel well fenced dog run, a jumping pillow, and a nice nature trail. I like the people a lot that own the place and think they are great friendly folks. Now the negatives. The stairs, ramps, and rails to the office are dry rotted and need to be replaced. The rails are lose enough to be a major safety hazard especially for a person with disabilities like my mother. The road are gravel and some are very rutted, the roads are narrow and can be hard to maneuver with a big rig. There are some limbs that hang down in the way of your rig. My site was level side to side and somewhat front to back. The site was narrow and my slides were right up against 2 trees (1 more inch and the slide would have been against the trunk of one. The sewer and water where in the correct place; however, the 30 amp power was at the very front of my truck making it cord unable to reach it. Luckily, the park owner loaned me a 30' extension allowing me to hook up to power. Be warned if you are coming north bound with a big rig to follow the parks instructions on how to get there. The park is on the west side of I-25. The bridge running under I-25 that you have to cross under is very narrow and only 13'3" tall. The bridge was to low for my 5th wheel.

Great stop along the way. Like this KOA so much on the way to West Yellowstone, that I stayed here on the way back. Nice quiet park with shade, great dog park, and nice creek to walk by. The facilities are immaculate. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The first time we stayed in a 30 amp pull thru gravel pad that was level. All the hook ups were in the correct place. The space can be a little tight with slides next to trees. The second time we stayed in a 50 amp pull thru gravel pad that was slightly unlevel, but 1 "Lego" block under each driver side tire corrected that. Once again all hook ups were in the correct place. The wifi is spotty and Dish cut off the local NBC, ABC, and CBS stations. All in all, great little park that I will stay at again.

I love this KOA, and if I ever return to Yellowstone, this is where I will stay. The views and scenery cannot be beat with mountains surrounding you and quiet peaceful country side. It was a great place to return to after a long day of hiking and touring Yellowstone. The atmosphere is that for adults, not children, with peace and quiet. So no peddle cars, screaming kids, or a pack of 10-year-olds on bicycles. The restrooms, shower rooms, and laundry were kept immaculately clean. The store stayed opened until 10pm each night. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They also provide 24 hour security (the security is equipped with bear spray, very important in this area since there are a lot of grizzly bears). They have a pizza parlor that is opened until 9pm each night too. If you want breakfast or a burger, you can go to the other KOA a mile down the road and get one there (that is more child friendly RV park with peddle cars and packs of 10-year-olds on bicycles). The water pressure was excellent. It also has an excellent dog park with grass. They had good cable TV so we could see the Olympics each night; however, the WiFi is a bit weak. Most of the interior roads are gravel, and most pads are gravel or dirt. I was concerned about a dirt pad at first, but when I pulled onto the pad I found it was very level. The sewage connection did sit on the high side of the pad, but it was still functional (slightly lower then the RV). There is a guy that makes chainsaw statues on site which adds some noise during the day. Also there is some noise from "Jake" brakes at night since the park is at the bottom of a 7% grade (trucks are required by Montana to use "Compression Brakes" when coming down that mountain). It is a new park that they are working onto improve. Most of the building are new. I was told by staff that they are hoping to have most of the pad fully graveled by next year. We truly enjoyed our time here!!!

An RV resort this is definitely not. The spaces are mostly gravel, short, tight, and unlevel. I had to use 3 "lego" block per tire on my driver side to get my 5th wheel level. Then I had to unhook and park to the side so my neighbor could park his toad and not be in the road. It is, however, the most big rig friendly of the local parks (I checked out the other parks and they didn't have pull thrus and where even tighter). The hook-ups where all properly placed and easy to hook up too. The roads are tight but navigatable and paved. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is also 24 hour security. The dog park is well fenced and gravel. The bathrooms where clean, however I did not check out or use the showers. There is plenty of shade and the park is fairly quiet. There is good bbq served in the evening and pancake breakfast on Sunday mornings. It is a decent park that is convient to the sites, not someplace I would stay at regularly.

Easy access off of I-40 that is very big rig friendly. It was a quiet relaxing spot to stay with an excellent staff. The restroom/showers are extremely clean and have plenty of space. The dog park had good grass with plenty of room; however, there are a couple of places a small dog could escape under the fence. The spaces are spacious level concrete pads with plenty of room for big rigs and all the hook-up are correctly placed. It is just far enough from the interstate that you do not here any road noise, but very close to the Loves truck stop that has an RV island! This is a definite stay at place that is very reasonably price. There is minimal shade which is to be expected due to you location. Amarillo is a semi-desert environment and trees take a long time to grow. The park has plenty of trees planted. It will just take a while for them to grow.

Nice quiet park with level concrete pull thru's that are long enough for any size rig. I had made reservations in advance since I was going to arrive after the office closed. When I arrived, someone had taken the site I was assigned. The manager was easy to get on the phone, and he quickly assigned me another site. The only negative I had was the sewer hookup was up out of the ground almost at the level of my RV hookup which made dumping black and gray water difficult.

Date of Stay:

Family run and extremely friendly. Sites are all concrete, level, and Big Rig friendly. My site was perfectly level with all the hookups in the correct location. Park is extremely clean, neat, and quiet. Very pet friendly with a nice dog run, plenty of grassy areas, and dog bags with doggy dumpsters throughout the park. It does lack shady; however, this is a new park. Plenty of trees have been planted, they just take time to grow. The park has done an excellent job of keeping full-time residents separated from transient residents. Also, all the full-time residents have nice newer RVs. It have close proximity to shopping restaurants and service stations. There is also a large RV repair facility located next door. The Wifi was excellent, but the cable is a bit fuzzy. The only complaint I have is the location of dumpster next to the entrance instead of the exit (there is separate entrance and exit) meaning I had to walk across the park when I left to throw out the trash. Minor inconvenience for me, but could be a problem for someone mobility impaired like my parents. I would definitely stay here again.

On the surface, this looks like a very good park. Friendly staff, clean, shade trees, big friendly, 50 amp hookup, and Domino's will deliver to your site. Nice gravel pull throughs that require just slight leveling. Of course, it's about 5 in the afternoon and I notice the scrap yard across the street that is idle. There is a slight odor of burnt paint in the air. Wellll, at 0730 the scrap yard comes to life with loud equipment, trucks, and crushing metal. Then the smell of burnt paint and metal gets so strong that it burns your eyes, makes it hard to breathe, and caused me to be nauseous. Good park without the scrap yard. With the toxic scrap yard, makes for a good old Love Canal. I was visiting family in Clarksville. Next time, I'll stay in Nashville and commute back and forth.

Nice quiet little park conveniently off of I-64. There is some road noise outside (for thosed bugged by any road noise what so ever) but heard none of it in the RV. Close to 4 gas stations, 6 restaurants, and 2 grocery stores and all less than 1 mile away. Sites are gravel, but are well maintained and level. I had a nice long pull through that was perfectly level 50 amp with water and sewer perfectly placed. Perfect spot for a night stay over or a couple of days if your in the area. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If you like amenities, this is not the park for you. There is no bathhouse, cable, pool, or wifi. I had a strong ATT LTE signal the whole time and air TV channels came in good. I would definitely stay here again for the friendly staff, level easy hookup sites, and peaceful surroundings.

Date of Stay:

Over priced for the sites and amenities, which is typical for parks in tourist towns. This park is no different. Not big rig friendly with tight narrow roads and trees that get in the way when your trying to back in. Not many 50 amp sites so we had to settle for 30amps. Gravel pads which will require some leveling. Also hook-up are not the best laid out which required me to run 30' of sewer hose and another 30' of water hose. The desk host that I dealt with was friendly and helpful, but the guy next to him was rude and very condescending to other customers. Also, no one showed me to my site. They did have 24 hour security.

Just off of the interstate, quite clean park nestled between 2 hills. Some sites have trees with gravel pads, but I stayed in the newer section with level concrete pads but no trees. Staff was friendly during check-in, but no one showed us to our site or checked with us during the week we stayed there. Water, electricity, and cable was all good but the wifi was spotty at best. Enjoyed the stay and will be back when visiting family again.

Quiet, peaceful park with great hosts that treat you right! Level concrete pads that are big rig friendly with all the connections on the proper location (no stretching out 30' of sewer or water hose). They have on site RV repairs which was great for us since we had refrigerator and TV issues. All were fixed promptly, correctly, and at an extremely reasonable rate. I have stayed here before and I will be back again.

Date of Stay:

Staff was not that friendly (not rude either) and were easily flustered by simple questions like "How do you get to Camping World from here?" Park roads and RV sites are not big rig friendly. Roads are narrow with tight turns and most pads are gravel and narrow. Definitely overpriced for RV pads and amenities. Park was clean and maintained. Dog park was alright, however, the fence needs fixing. There is a lot of road noise since it backs up to I-40 (that doesn't bother me, but for those that are fussy over road noise, it will drive you nuts). It worked as an overnight layover, but not someplace I would stay for more than a night.

First of all, calling this RV Park a "RV Resort" is a huge stretch of the imagination, if not a down right lie. It is a former KOA that has a white paint scheme and a new name. The pads are gravel, narrow, and short. While the pad was level from side to side, it sloped down both front to back. After 15 minutes of wrangling, I finally got enough room to slide out the slides without hitting my neighbor's slides(after I had the slides out, you could not walk between me and my neighbor, you had to crawl under the slides). I also found the "sweet spot" where my 5th wheel was level front to back without deploying the Lego step blocks. While I heard little traffic noise from the interstate, there was a lot of internal traffic from people who live/stay at the park with loud trucks (the diesels with straight pipes) that made it hard to sleep or enjoy being outside. They supposedly have an age and condition restriction; I guess it did not apply to the 1980s Prowler that had an orange tarp as the roof. I stayed here based on Woodalls 5 star rating, Woodalls was way off, more like 2 stars. While the restrooms are clean and well maintained, the pool is small, the rec room is small, and both were crowded with just a few people. The only positive comments that I have besides clean restrooms is the staff was very friendly. I might stay here as an overnight stop, but this is not a place I would stay at for more than a day.

Date of Stay:

Nice clean park, very scenic with the lake surrounding the RV park. The staff was very friendly polite and helpful. The sites are paved spacious and perfectly level. Location of water sewer and electric where perfect for my 5th wheel. I loved the gate and security after hours! The downside to this park is the nonexistent Wi-Fi; got a signal, signed in with the code, then it required 45 minutes to download 1 email. (I was parked right next to the router! I switch to my ATT LTE card which does have great signal). The office/store is only opened from 9a-4p during the week and 10a-4p on the weekends. Also, the "cable" is DirecTV which goes out intermittently or will only give you half the channels listed. For the scenic beauty, large level spaces, and friendly staff, I will stay here again. If you require Wi-Fi or need to watch your favorite TV show, you will be sorely disappointed by this RV park.
