Nice clean park. Asphalt road leading into park, gravel roads after that. Concrete pads for the rig and a nice grass area with table and grill. Large mature trees spread throughout the park. Great park if you are traveling with kids, tons of amenities plus a lake with free paddleboat. Wifi is slooooow. Park tends to be full on the weekend, only about half full throughout the week. Tons of workers on the property for anything you need. Also has a small food truck that does pizza at night, and breakfast on the weekends. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a difficult review to complete as there were both good and bad points. First, if you like narrow and shallow back-in sites, this campground is for you. Our back bumper was less than 5 feet from the rig behind us and our slide was about the same distance from the neighbors picnic table. The pull-thru sites seemed to have much more room. Next, during our first two nights, the CG was mobbed. Just about every site was occupied, so there were adults and kids and barking dogs everywhere. It was like being in downtown Denver at lunchtime. But on the last few days, it slowly emptied, so there were less people and not as much noise. The entrance ways were all paved, but the roadways within the park were dirt and stones, so without rain, it was dusty most of the time. I must say that the staff we had contact with were hardworking and very friendly. There were numerous activities going on throughout the park, but seeing Mount Evans, Estes Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park trump campground activities. If we were back in the area during the "in" season, we would not stay here, but we may consider it during the "off" season. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a destination RV park where a family can enjoy the many included amenities without ever leaving. If that is your plan, this is a great park and worth the money. If all of those amenities have no interest to you, you will be paying a huge premium staying here. The entrance is long and paved and a security guard checks you in. The registration area is large and staff is friendly. a host takes you to your site. The interior roads are gravel and narrow, made worse by cars parking in the road at the perimeter back in sites. We had a corner spot with a huge paved patio, wrought iron furniture, fire pit and BBQ grill, but no grass. There is a concrete pad large enough to get a big rig situated on it, but the front and back of the site is gravel. The utilities worked fine. WiFi was not great. There were many restrooms and they were very nice with very spacious showers. The lake is nice and you can walk your dog around the half mile perimeter. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the third time we have stayed in this park. One of the best KOA's we have visited. This time we had a 40 foot motor home and a tow. The only problem we have had is that their sewer lines are back a little far for our coach, but workable. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice KOA on the outskirts of Ft. Collins. A lot of activities for kids plus the pizza. Back-in sites are parked toe to toe with little space behind you. Dust was an issue when people sped thru the CG. Very family friendly. I would skip this place on a return trip. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest KOA we have ever stayed in. A little out of the way, but worth it. So many things for children and families to do in the park, all free. The park is easy to get in, our site was a concrete pad with a patio which had wrought iron furniture. The site was level and large enough for our 42 ft fifth wheel and crew cab tow truck. Easy drive to Estes Park and Loveland. This park is a fantastic value for families as there is so many activities for the children, both young and older. Would stay here again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely rv park with lots of large trees. We paid an additional $10 per night for the third adult in our party. Laneways are gravel. Sites are level concrete pads with a large picnic table and a clean BBQ grill. Sites are long with lovely soft grass between. Park is very well maintained. All utilities work very well. Be sure to have a water regulator as the city water pressure is high. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a very busy park in the summer with an unheated pool and spa, beautiful lake for paddle boating or fishing. Tons of stuff for kids to do. They have a food truck set up permanently - one of the best pepperoni pizzas we've ever had - just $11 and delivered piping hot to your RV! The food truck also offers breakfast each morning. Park is situated about 1.5 miles out of town - feels very rural and peaceful. Only negative is in the laundry room. Laundry room washing machines are very small -1/2 the size of a regular washing machine - and $2.00 a load! There are two large machines at $4.00 a load. Dryers are large and cost $0.25 for 8 minutes.

But lots of cafes, shops etc only 1.5 miles away. Perfect. Old town is perfect place to spend time. It reminds us very much of the small historic East Coast towns we visited last year. And is very active area with the locals. Tons of breweries. What a great place to just sit back and relax. We will definitely be back. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice campground with gravel streets and concrete pads. The entrance is through a manned security gate and is a large area for parking. There are grassy areas between sites and picnic tables. We had no issues with satellite or other utilities. We did found the streets to be a little narrow for a big rig because of the large trucks which overflowed some into the streets. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

As the other reviews said, lots of amenities. This is more of a family type resort. Somewhat pricey, like all KOAs. A real irritant was the $10/person fee for guests. Staff were pleasant and groundskeeping/maintenance were excellent.

Sites were concrete and level with good spacing. My site has an awkwardly placed tree.

Cable is good, Wi-Fi is terrible. Not too far (5 miles) from downtown Ft Collins. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Let me start by saying I am not a fan of KOA's, however, if they were all like this, I'd stay in them every time. The staff is extremely helpful, the sites are a nice size with grass, a grill, table and a decent distance from the neighbor. The amenities are out of this world...pickle ball, bean bag toss, minature golf, paddle boats, bumper boats, dog park, train rides, pizza truck, kid play area, ball field, pool, walks around the lake, fishing and more. This is a destination place for families and worth the price if you are going to use the amenities. We were there on a holiday weekend and it was full. You never need to leave the park to have a lot of fun. However, we do enjoy downtown Ft Collins and did a lot of sightseeing. My only problem with the place is that my Verizon air card was extremely slow. Not sure if it's the area, which is out of town a bit, or just too many people at once trying to use the cell tower. Easy to get in and navigate with a big rig. Guard at the front gate so outsiders don't use the amenities. We love this area and will continue to come here even though the price is high even for KOA's. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This campsite has numerous amenities for families with children: fabulous playground, paddle boats, mini golf, games, etc. We stayed here because our son lives in Fort Collins, and we wanted to be fairly close to him. In our experience, this was one of the pricier RV parks we've stayed in, but it was well maintained. The staff is very friendly. There is a large staff here, so lots of folks to help you. It looked like most of the sites had cement pads. We ended up paying additional $10/night for a cement patio with patio furniture. It was raining so this seemed like a good option. The problem is that the sites are pretty close together so we wouldn't feel comfortable using the patio furniture with our neighbor's slide literally a foot or two from our patio. When it rained, there were numerous very large, deep puddles at both ends of our site. They dried up in a day or two. The entry drive into the campground looks like a construction site (not very attractive), and there's no parking outside the campground. Many others commented on the $10/day visitor fee so we were prepared for this when our son came over to have dinner at our campsite. There was a large laundry room and very nice general store. The bathroom/showers on the east side of campground where very nice: five private bathroom/shower combinations. No fire rings at campsites unless you wanted to rent for $5/day (they would deliver). We will be back through this area again, but will try a Larimer County campground (Horsetooth Reservoir). Not as many amenities but much less expensive. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent just one night here while passing through the area. It appeared to be a great resort park with lots to do without even leaving. Finally, a resort park that actually earns a resort rating. Would be a great place to bring kids for a weekend. Our pull through site was paved and with convenient hookups and a picnic table. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.
