We spent a week here while visiting family. We stayed in the newer, lower section of the park which had beautiful views of the area, including the nearby Royal Gorge Bridge. The utilities were all new and the wi-fi was the best we have ever had in an RV park. The young couple who recently acquired the park showed great enthusiasm toward making a nice park even nicer. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for two nights in a 36' gooseneck trailer. The owner was very helpful in telling us places to ride our ATV and where to flyfish. Friendly helpful staff. We had full hookups, showers were clean and had plenty of hot water. Pleasant place to camp. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for our visit to Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. CG is very quiet and the RV sites are wide, but just long enough for our 40' motorhome without toad connected. New owner is very friendly and eager to please. WIFI worked great, best of any CG we visited this year. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Motorhome.

Royal Gorge Bridge and Park were very beautiful and worthwhile to visit. Also visited Canon City and had great BBQ at Chicago Bob's downtown.

Stayed two night here. Very friendly staff. We had a patio spot which is the largest spots they have. Had no problems getting in as these are pull thru. 50 app site with table, propane BBQ and fire rig. Found it to be very quiet. WI-FI and Verizon service was great. Lots to do if you have kids along. Pool, horse shoes, go cart track , plus looked like they had a hay ride also. I would stay here again. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Royal GORGE bridge is just a few miles down the road. Well worth the time and money to visit. Canon City is 6 miles away so if you need items no problem finding them.

We stayed in a cabin this time. The hot water did not work and the staff said that's as hot as it gets...barely lukewarm. Grounds kept clean but it's just ugly out here, very scubby. Camper sites were typical Koa in a close fashion. Pool looked ok. Restrooms were very nice. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Cabin.

We stayed here for roughly 4 months in our tent and it was a wonderful value. Lots of activities in the campground as well as around it. The restrooms were always clean, and the staff was helpful! We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Stayed here because it was convenient to Royal Gorge. Could see the bridge from our RV site. We stayed shortly after a snowstorm and the snow had melted but the ground was soft and one of our jacks sunk in about 3 inches. There weren't many people staying there - looked like busy is after Memoial Day. They were painting the pool and there was an attached "amusement park" which looked like it would be open in June. It had some slides and a miniature golf course. Big park with lots of spots. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped here to see Royal Gorge, but it is a city park and they wanted $21 per person to see it and to participate in the "amusements". Looked like the scenic railroad or rafting would be great things to do in the summer.

This was pretty much just a place to park the RV. Nothing special, nothing to make it stand out. Restrooms were clean, laundry area was good, staff very friendly. Sites are extremely close together. wouldn't stay there again. The only reason we chose this park in the first place is because of the creepy place we initially were registered at across the street.

Read reviews and had concerns, but purchased a double site and thoroughly enjoyed the campground. Staff was courteous and very helpful. Kids loved the pool and slide. Would recommend Royal Gorge KOA consider an all inclusive price for the amusements. We will definitely return. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The nightly rate includes the 10% KOA discount for being a KOA rewards member. This was our first trip to the Royal Gorge area which is absolutely spectacular. I rated this park a 7, but if the park has been fully occupied I would have rated it about a 5. There were only about 8 of us in the park. The sites are extremely close together but it didn't bother us as there were so few RV's there. The roads in to the park were rough and the site was extremely unlevel. The people working at this KOA seemed totally clueless. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. The Wi-Fi had a strong signal but the speed was horrible. I can't imagine how bad it would be if the park was even 50% occupied. We will not stay here again. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first KOA - actually our first commercial campground, as we've always stayed at state parks and national forest campgrounds. So while we like the rustic wilderness, trees and privacy of NF campgrounds, we wanted to try the conveniences of an RV park. The sites were close together, with the back of our camper about 3 feet from the slide out of the camper behind us. At least we did have a tree in front, and no one in the spot in front of us either. The pool was run-down, with weeds growing up around the fence, cracks in the concrete, etc. Our kids (7 mos & 2 yrs) loved the pool, but I was concerned about its cleanliness. The water was cloudy, with numerous bugs & other floating debris. Worst of all, there were large sticky orange spots on the walls and steps, and when touching them, the "goop" transfered to one's skin. I am unlikely to camp there again.

We (family) were expecting a lot, because there is a nice description at the "Directory of KOA." In fact there is a big slide and a park, but everything seems old and used. The pool is OK. The campground is dusty and very uneven. Our bench was old and kind of ugly. They have some patio sites, they do look a little better. The "Royal Gorge" is worth a trip. There´s a park around the bridge, it opens at 10 a.m. (RV parking possible). You have to pay an entrance fee ( $ 24,- for adults). It´s nice for adults and kids and worth the money. You can cross the bridge by tram, feet or car (no RVs), do several rides, watch a movie about Royal Gorge, eat and shop etc. We camped at Royal Gorge / Canon City KOA in a Motorhome.
