As I read many of the other reviews of this park, I feel a little foolish writing my review. I'm not sure that we were staying at the same park.

First, the positives. The staff was very friendly and efficient and we were escorted to our spot upon arrival. The problem with the road has been addressed and there is now an easier entrance.

Then, the negatives. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with concrete pads installed. There are a few trees that have been planted in the gravel that will be nice once they mature. The spaces are very narrow. Our neighbor had two trucks parked and although they were fully in their space, the truck bumper was about 3 feet from the bench of our picnic table. Too close for me. The 5th wheel across the parking lot had 2 trucks and a small car parked in their space. Pretty tight! The new entrance is not marked as such. Although we were on the right road, the place where we needed to enter looked like an exit. The upper loop where we were parked offered no view whatsoever, except of other rigs. We have been on the road for 4 months and this is the most we have paid for a spot, yet, this is the most unpleasant park that we have been in during this time. We will look for a different park next time we are through this area. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Very beautiful views at this campground. The upper level and back in sites generally have the best views, It is a bit of a tuff climb up the parkway, but the new entrance way saves the extreme down hill and switchback inside Central city. It would be nice if the staff would not put buses in front of the view of travel trailers. The park is dusty, and unfortunatly the staff drives fast and they set a poor example for the guests.That being said the staff were very friendly and helpful. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The next exit off 70 has a Safeway which sells firewood for 4.99. exit 251 off I70 has a Walmart. Driving time from here takes a long time because of the roads and speed limits, Denver, Golden, etc appear close but take a while. The Coors tour was very good.

We stayed in spot 9 and had a great view. Spots 1-10 all have amazing views of Central City. Other reviews complained about the drive into the KOA. There is a new access road from the Central City Parkway that eliminates that issue. Our site was concrete and rock with plenty of room for our 35 ft motor home and Toad. The staff was terrific. The roads were wide but were gravel with a large amount of dust. We had a great stay and will very likely return. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Try to get site 1-10. The view is amazing. I recommend entering from I-70 and the central city parkway. The parkway is an excellent, 4 lane road with a short access road into the KOA making the drive easy even for large Coaches.

Tons of things to do but far enough away from downtown Denver to enjoy the outside. Casinos were close by and we went to the Georgetown Loop railroad, which was excellent.

Park has concrete pads, fire rings, picnic tables. Multi level park with great views. The park is at about 9000 ft. We were in an upper level pull in with and incredible view of the valley below and Central City. As another reviewer said the ride up is better suited for a sports car not a 40 ft motorhome, but it was worth the adventure. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall this is a nice park. The worst thing about it is just the drive up the narrow road from the town just to get to it. Very steep and about a mile above Central City. The site were very nice but all the roads are gravel so it is kind of dusty. I probably would stay somewhere else next time just because of the drive to get to the park. I stayed in site number 4 which was overlooking the town so that part was very nice as far as the view. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

The park is very clean and sites are concrete pad with fire ring. Our site was very level although I did see one motorhome with the front wheels off the ground (maybe operator error). Staff were very professional and helpful. We were guided to our site. The park is very maneuverable even for big rigs. The sites on the upper level 1 through 10 have an unrestricted view of Central City below and the entire valley it sits in. They are pull-in sites so if you have a motorhome, sunrise greets you with an outstanding view. The park offers free shuttle into town, all you can eat pancakes in the morning and pizza ordered through them will be delivered to your site. I was apprehensive about getting to the park after I turned off of Hwy 119 into Blackhawk on narrow winding mountain roads but I had remembered the directions saying follow the blue camping signs. They took me right to the park. Overall a very good KOA. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

Amazing view of Old Town Central City from the upper level campsites.

Staff very helpful. I needed compressed air for one of my RV tires and they provided an air compressor, hoses, and electrical cords to help us get to a tire shop in Golden. Also provided transportation to near by town for dining & shopping. Our campsite was concrete and flat, utilities appeared to be pretty new ! Wi-Fi was excellent. Had a little trouble getting acclimated to the altitude, probably because we live at the beach in California. We camped at Denver West / Central City KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
