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.

Level concrete pads. Inner roads good. Very clean and nice people in the store. Lots for the kids to do at this park. Good fishing in their lake. We would stay again. We stayed a week so price reflects that. 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.

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.

There are 3 KOA's in Fort Collins. We have stayed at the Wellington location. The Lakeside location is far superior. There are a lot of amenities in the park to keep you occupied. The internet works well. The cable TV is adequate. Garbage can be picked up at your site or you can deposit it in a dumpster yourself. The sites have grass & are of adequate size. The hookups were located okay & the sites were level. It is conveniently located to the city of Fort Collins shopping & restaurants. The staff was friendly & you are escorted to your site. There is Hunts Brothers pizza on site & breakfast on the weekends. The speed bumps getting into the park are killers. Most are actually dips in the driveway and have no markings. You just learn where they are. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

First of all, you should know I am not a fan of KOA but would come back here in a flash and think many campgrounds should use this place as an example for amenities. Our site was a pull thru and long enough (many times they aren't) for our 40 ft RV plus tow. Staff was courteous and helpful at check in and when we had packages mailed to us here. Verizon service was not the best here for either cell or data, but it did work. This is NOT an overnight spot, as it takes a while to get here from I-25. However, it is easy to get into town for groceries and other amenities. Entry into the park and around the park is easy with a big rig. Now for the amenities...yes, you are paying a higher price in your fee for them but I have never been to a park that has so much available. And not just for kids but for adults too. Paddle boats, miniature golf, fantastic playground, walking trail (my dog loved this!) around the lake, dog park, basketball, pickle ball, jumpy houses, pool, train rides around the park and probably other things I can't remember. All of this is included in the price and although the price is a little higher than some KOA's I can understand why. They also have breakfast on the weekends and pizza and wings available every night for purchase. This place is in demand and that's why the weekend rates are higher. We were here a week and loved the park and the area. I wouldn't hesitate to come back. It was a peaceful park even with all the activities going on. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here while visiting relatives in Fort Collins. I tend to stay away from KOAs, we do not take advantage of the amenities offered and those amenities drive the price per night up. This park was really nice, next to a lake, if you have children this would be a fun place for them. Our site was a pull thru, a level cement pad with grass on both sides with a table. Wifi was spotty, plenty of channels on cable. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

his place was a pleasant surprise. We had just traded-in our old travel trailer and bought a new motorhome. This was our two day "shakedown" trip to make sure everything worked and how to work it before we took any big trips.
A lot of shade trees and grass here. Plenty of space between spots. Laundry, showers and bathrooms were spotless. Staff was great. There was even a small building where you could order a pizza, or breakfast, and have it delivered right to your RV. Great WiFi. We will stay here again. We camped here in a motorhome.

The water is very hard and the campground has made no effort to adjust the spray of the lawn sprinklers. After the first night, I was dismayed to find hard water spots ¾ way up the side of our motor home and covering the right side of our tow vehicle. I called the office and they basically didn't care. To make matters worse the sprinklers run every night. After two nights, the entire right side of our motor home was covered with hard water spots.

Quiet hours are 10:00 pm to 7:00 am. One local camper starts his loud diesel truck at 5:50 am and runs it for 15 minutes before departing.

Overall, this was a very unpleasant experience, especially considering what we paid for the stay-highly overpriced! We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

While we enjoyed our stay we found the staff to be very grumpy and acted like they were doing you a favor by letting you spend your money there. The park itself is very nice and spacious, with putt putt gold, fishing lake, river close by. Nice and quiet will be coming back and just hope they have more friendlier staff.

Everything is here. All kinds of stuff for the kids to do. About 10 miles from I-25 so it's not for an overnight. Lots of shade and grass. Gravel roads, concrete pad, picnic table, and bar-b-que. Helpful, courteous staff. Pool was too cold to use. New bathhouses. Very quiet. Cable TV had limited channels and poor reception. Competitive price. About an hour from Estes Park, Stanley Hotel, and Rocky Mountain National Park. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice destination park for families but we don't use most of the amenities so it is an expensive place for us. We were not happy when told we could not put up a small pen for our two small dogs. They also wanted to charge $10 if our friend visited our RV. Will only stay here again if we can't find someplace else. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
