Folks are very nice and accommodating. Sites are really tight. It is next to a riding stable with about 50 horses, so downwind is interesting. If dry, it is very dusty. The cable just change, so one had to ask for a "box" to view. No one told us that until the last day. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There are a few parks closer to RMNP that look better. Check them out first. There is a Safeway just toward town.

We camped with our two adult kids, their spouses, and 8 grandkids under 9 years of age. We stayed in our truck camper and they each had a tent site on either side of us. This campground is great for a big family get together as they have a wonderful play area for the little ones, a neat and free train ride every evening, a smore's fire on Friday nights, and Ice cream socials on other evenings. The breakfast the campground offered really helped with so many hungry kids every morning. The grandkids cried when they left to go home. The other things to do in Estes Park made everyone happy. We have already made a reservation for September, 2016. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Truck Camper.

Very nice location with great view of the mountains. Sites were a little close. All gravel and a bit dusty. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

We visit Estes Park fairly often, mainly for hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park and to explore the picturesque Mountain town. This was our first stay at the KOA; we've been hesitant to stay here due to the small campsites. After reading reviews and driving by when the campground is full most of the sites are really tight. Having seen a map as well as doing a google satellite view we noticed the end row sites being quite a bit larger than the others. We phoned the campground directly well in advance and requested an end row site, we were fortunate and were able to get our desired site, it had full services including excellent wifi coverage and Cable TV. Cleanliness and service at this campground was great. Both Jim the owner and Bud, the KOA work camper were amazing, driving around lots chatting with the campers, really going out of their way to make people feel welcome. There is a free shuttle into Estes Park, we didn't use this but certainly a convenient feature. We will definitely stay here again. The campground really is in a great location, extremely clean and has great customer service. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Request an end of row site; 29, 37 and 48 are all really nice.
Don't hang out at your site all day, there really is so much to see in this beautiful area. The campground is convenient to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Take time to explore both, chances are you'll see Elk.

Upon entering the campground, you must park on a steep grade while registering. Then you are escorted to your site and the escort assists with parking. This assistance is essential because the sites are so tightly packed that there is no margin for error. If you have a slide out on the left, you will not be able to fully extend your awning.

My pedestal had a high steel divider just below the socket for my 30 amp cord. The divider needed a cutout to let the cord hang naturally, but there was none. Instead I had to use a hard bend in the cord to get around the ridge, which compromised the security of the plug in the socket.

The campground consists of flat terraced areas carved out of a steep hillside. The gravel sites are level and hookups were appropriately located. Main roads are paved but narrow with tight turns. There was insufficient room to park my tow vehicle at my site; I had to use a parking space about a hundred feet away.

It was wonderfully quiet at night, but I was awakened at 5AM one morning by a neighbor's alarm clock. Another neighbor deployed his awning to within 2 feet of the side of my trailer.

Restrooms were clean and very useable although showers were small and tight. On weekdays the park was not full, but on weekends it was packed with no room to spare. Overall, the ambiance was that of a tightly packed parking lot.

I would not recommend this park and I will not return. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The term sardines comes to mind. Extremely close sites. They try to fill every square inch of space. Big rigs should certainly avoid this place. We had a back in space for a 35 feet motorhome, with an unusable table at the rear. The site was so narrow, we could not put out the awning, it would have touched our neighbors slide out. Restrooms are totally inadequate. One urinal and two stalls in the men's room. Estes Park is beautiful, but we will not return to this park. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Great park for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Like all parks in Estes Park, grass is at a premium and spaces are tight. Very clean park, good cable, and good Wi-Fi. Nice location. Would stay here again. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient free shuttle service stops right in front of campground. Rather tight spaces for large rigs but no problem for my little class B. Typical KOA, clean, well kept and friendly staff. I will stay here again next time in Estes Park. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff was friendly and the store had a lot variety. Interesting park layout. The back-ins look to be tight if you have slide outs with very little space between neighbors. There are 3 tiers. Across from the back-ins on each tier are parallel park sites. I had one of those for my teardrop. I commented that it looked like they had more cabins than RV spots and turns out that is accurate. This is a fair price as other spots in town outside the national park are more expensive. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We love KOA campgrounds because we always know what to expect and have always been happy with the ones we have used. This one however is extremely cramped. Our neighbors can look into our windows, we cannot let out our awning and can barely walk out our door. The people working here are very nice, but they have crammed everyone in like sardines which defeats the purpose of camping. There is NO privacy. Would not stay here again. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Several of the sites required parking parallel to and against a wall with the trees above the wall (not at the level of the RV). So, there was the wall on one side and the road on the other side. No place to really walk a dog since there was private property and residence immediately adjacent to the KOA. Hosts were kind and helpful. Lots of hummingbirds and of course very close to Estes Park downtown, and the mountains for hiking. So very glad there is a KOA here. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place to stay for a few nights. Great location close to town and park. Friendly staff. Only back in spots and not much space to park your tow. I would give it a 10 for the camp but the sites are very tight and not much space between. I will stay again. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff. Booked a last minute site when we had fridge trouble and needed to move to a campground with electrical hookups. Provided the name of a mobile RV repair service who fixed the problem (not cheap). Site was not great. No shade, pull out on the side of the road site. Paid $5 per night for each person over the first two. Made the nightly rate $59. Enjoyed the pancake breakfast-choice of blueberry, chocolate chip or plain. Can take the shuttle to town or Rocky Mountain NP, but can take awhile. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff is friendly and helpful but this where any upside ends. The sites are more than small, we were not able to extend our canopy and cooking meals outside was an adventure. We had to move our car from our site to satellite parking to allow other campers to pull out of their sites. This campground crams everyone in like sardines and is not up to KOA standards. We will not stay here again and do not recommend it. We camped at Estes Park KOA in a Motorhome.
