This place has everything you would expect at a KOA, plus a hot tub (didn't use). Close to Central City Casinos and they offer shuttle service. A bit pricey. Firewood cost $7.50 small bundle. They had a pizza and wing bites deal that was convenient for our late arrival. Getting to their locations was a trip.....8 miles in off of I-70 thru twisty road, down hill then up hill. You go right past it but can't get into it w/o going to the little city first. Would stay here again. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park, with attractive paved RV sites, nicely spaced. The hookups are convenient and all work well. This park is at a high altitude, so some may have to become used to it to function well. The park is high above Central City, and not within easy walking distance, so one really needs an automobile to get into town to see the sights. The price reflects the weekly rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA has friendly staff, nice facilities. The drive up the parkway and back around to the campground is circuitous, but just follow their blue signs, there is no problem. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Good park at 8500 ft. Lots of winding steep up and down and finally sharp switchbacks to get to it. Concrete parking pads but gravel everywhere else. From the upper level, there is a view of the town. Dog walks are just more gravel. I probably won't make the effort to go there again but once you get there, it's fine. They even make pizzas and wings. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Coming out of Denver in summer is a long steep grade so be sure and watch your engine temperature. Once you leave the freeway it is still a long steep grade but definitely worth it. We are in site 5 and the view is breathtaking. We travel with parrots and even they were excited by the bird's eye view. The breeze is wonderful and one of our most exciting overnight stays to date. Too bad we didn't plan a longer stay. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Not usually a fan of KOA's but this one is nice and unique. At 9000' probably the highest RV park in the US. Fairly new and well equipped. Pretty much a gravel parking lot with few trees and no lawns. There is a pet area but it's mostly a poop zone with no exercise area. None the less, very good amenities with a very nice laundry room, hot tubs, store (minimal with no produce), full hook ups, cable, propane, and friendly and helpful service. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is accessed through a very windy road and almost a residential area - a new exit off the main road would be easy and convenient. However, having said that, this park is a very nice place to stay. It is not a heavily treed park, more parking lot features, especially near the main office where we were parked. You could hear trailers and cars coming and going, even into the night. There are lots of casinos nearby and a shuttle to them from the campground, so I suspect lots of campers are there for the gambling. Try not to get a site right near the office to avoid the gravel crunching into the night. The sites up on the hill are the nicest, I think. It is windier up there, but more trees on the periphery. There are full hookups, a fabulous big clean laundry, a nice store with appropriate groceries and tourist stuff. On weekends, they serve all you can eat pancakes for $3 in a nice eating area. We did it and the pancakes were good if simple. It is very tidy and well maintained overall. I would stay there again if in the area, for sure, but not near the office if possible not to. The operators are also very friendly and helpful here. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Owners were very helpful when we arrived and came to the site to make sure we had everything. We didn't have a sewer hose connection so the owner went to the office and gave us one to use. Campground is very clean. Although it was just opening for the year they were working hard to get everything in shape. The wifi was not working at the upper sites because of thefts but someone was arriving to fix that week. The owner was very apologetic. The road to the campground is very mountainous and not recommended pulling a vehicle, but unhook before going thru the mountains. Once you arrive you will love this place. It's very peaceful and the views are outstanding. We will be back to this park. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is not your typical KOA! We try to stay away from KOAs when we can. This one, on the other hand, was fantastic. The setting is gorgeous. Yes, it was interesting getting to the location on the top of a mountain, but the views are excellent and it's only 8 miles off the interstate. They have long, level, concrete pull-throughs, which we picked for an overnight stay. They have some head-ins overlooking the valley which I would love to come back and spend a week in. They have 2 hot tubs, a rec area, and serve pizza and wings at your site! It just doesn't get any better than this. I would love to come back here again and stay longer!

This is the second time we camped here, and we hope there will be a third. This is a fantastic place to stay sitting amongst the mountains at 9,000 feet. The staff was friendly and helpful checking us in quickly - as they did two years prior. The sites are level with the camper sitting on a concrete slab, which are large and level with easy access to all the hook ups. We had plenty of room to set up a 12 x 12 domed canopy for cooking and eating in comfort. The wood was delivered to our site while we were gone, piled nicely under the canopy since it was raining. The bathrooms are cleans and the shower stalls are large with plenty of room. We would go back again. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We seldom stay at a KOA. However, we needed a place for several days along I-70 and this fit the spot. This is one of the nicest KOA's we have seen. Gravel roads/streets and concrete pads with a patio. Good voltage and water pressure. Great staff in office. As previously mentioned, it is a little strange getting to it. Here are the GPS coordinates which will lead you right to it. N 39.79099, W 105.50960 They are what we used and they are correct. Lots of mining history in this little town. We would stay here again. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects VK discount. If you make the drive out here, pay the extra money for a pull in site with a view. The drive to the park is winding with very steep grades. Altitude is around 9000 feet. You must actually pass the park and then wind your way down and back up to it several miles. We saw one fifth wheel stalled on the way to the top of the hill (probably overheated). We fought gusty winds during our stay and needed to lower the satellite and pull in slides and even encountered a dusting of snow late May. Dog area is not fenced and has no grass along the busy roadway. WiFi worked fairly well as did Verizon. Sites are concrete (and too narrow for the price IMO), but all else is large gravel and dust. Casinos are close but groceries are not. We enjoyed the view but will probably not return. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Yup, it is weird to get to the campground, but follow the signs and the directions and you'll be fine. The campground has a gorgeous view, all concrete slabs, nice owners, fully stocked store, good Wi-Fi, cable TV is good too and if we ever come to this area again, we'll camp here again.

This is an exceptionally nice park. Big pull through spaces with two sewer connections, strong electric supply, strong water connection. The people checking us in an helping us could not have been nicer. Very nice view from site. I did not give a 10 because the Wi-Fi was intermittent. And access to this park was difficult. You have to go around problem turns and grades to get here. You can see it from the main road but you cannot get here without going through steep narrow curvy streets downtown.

Came back for a couple of nights. We lived at this park two seasons ago. It's still a great place. Owner has continued to make improvements to what was already a top-notch park. The access problem is due to City Council, who does whatever the casinos tell them to do, and the casinos think they will get more business if they force you to go through town first. Even though there is no place to park an RV in town. Yes, you have to drive it back up the hill, park on top, and take a shuttle back down. City Council definitely needs a clue stick.
