Stayed for two nights, a great Park. Nice sized sites and clean. Situated in a quiet area, no road or other noise. A small lake with paddle boats, etc., for the kids. We will definitely return to this area and stay at this park again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A very nice KOA. We usually stay at this location when in the area. Friendly staff and well cared for grounds. Sites are nice size, and they have lots of things for the kids to do. We experienced a problem with the cable TV and when the maintenance man came to check the connection at the site he told us the whole row was bad and they needed to replace the booster for that row. We stayed a week and they never did fix the problem. The charges for the activities seems a little higher than most. Over all it's a very nice place to spend some time We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is not anywhere near I-25. You have to drive through a good deal of downtown Ft. Collins to get there. It's about 8-10 miles off the freeway. It is a nice family park, with lakefront access and water craft rentals. Definitely a destination resort. Space is ample, featuring pull-through sites easy access. WiFi was strong and average speed. Cable was good. I think We would look for something closer to I-25 when traveling through again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a straight up 10 campground with a few issues to knock it down to an 8 rating on this visit. We have stayed here before, and normally stay in a "spa" site, and since our last visit, these spa sites have been been nicely updated to include a lattice fence around the hot tub for somewhat of a privacy feel. Nice wood burning fire pits have been added to the spa sites too. The pad is concrete and we were able to fit our 35' RV in the back in spa site. The electrical/cable TV hookup is at the front of the site, requiring us to use our satellite as our cable wasn't long enough. The sewer is at the rear of the site. The patios on the spa sites are pavers and a nice wrought iron table and chairs were there. Upon arrival, we requested an hour or so late checkout on our last day, and the older lady rudely told us, "No, we don't allow that anymore." I asked if we could if we paid extra, NO she said. I asked if we could speak to the manager, she said NO. I asked when is the manager going to be here, she said I don't know. We left and went to our site, but came back later to find the manager to report her rude behavior. He said they charge $3/hour for late checkouts on the RV sites. Well what do you know, they DO have late check outs! It amazes me with so many people wanting jobs, that KOA employs some of the people they do, and then they turn down revenue for the franchise owner just because they are lazy and have a bad attitude. Oh: the pool was empty, strange! We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a great clean park with friendly staff. All services were great including Wi-Fi. Lots to do at this park including a large playground, mini-golf, and an exercise room. For the cycling enthusiast the campground is close to a trail system that will allow for extended cycling. Will stay here again when the opportunity presents itself. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very clean, comfortable park just outside of Ft. Collins. Staff is friendly and helpful. Facilities including laundry, walking paths and playground are all well-maintained and nice. Overall a great place to stay. Kid-friendly and dog-friendly. Beautiful setting too. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice RV park in a great location! Check-in staff were very friendly and took us right to our site. We didn't get the site we had requested but this was a good thing as we were given an even better site (#173)! It seems that the section I had originally requested were all occupied by weekenders/rally group where the section they put us in were weekly guests or long timers and it was very quiet. We had a big grassy area right outside our door and a large tree that provided us with shade all day and yet didn't interfere with our roof-mounted Satellite TV. This park is well maintained with the exception of the roadway that connects into the sites in this area which has a huge pothole/valley which for the price being charged for sites should/could be easily fixed. The pool deck area is large and nicely furnished with loungers and chairs and some tables with umbrellas. The pool water was quite cold but perhaps after Labor Day they don't heat it any longer? I was very hot after a long bike ride and found it very refreshing. There is a nice lake on the property with a lit walking trail that goes all around it. The Poudre River Bike Trail head is less than a mile up the road and can be easily and safely ridden to on a bike. From here one can ride all the way to the Rocky Mountain Raptor Center just under 10 miles away. The RV Park is also conveniently located to a great new grocery store about 10 minutes away. Wi-Fi was okay. We loved everything about this RV park and would definitely stay here again! We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice Campground which is well cared taken care of. People were very nice. Decent size sites, maybe just slightly larger than most KOA's. All sites had paved pads. Green (watered) grass between all sites was a welcome site after being up in Estes Park, which was very dry and dusty. Internet worked fairly well, but did notice slow down sometimes. Cable had only 13 channels - no HD. We were there during a big stock market crash and would have really liked to watch CNBC, but no such luck. It is farther from town than I expected, but probably the closest campground to town. Overall, we enjoyed the campground. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

Very large KOA. Sites have long pull through with grass and picnic table. Some sites have a hot tub. We found the Wi-Fi wasn't very good. There is a large fishing lake: catch and release. Exercise machines, laundry and the reception/shop was very good. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely return. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

A bit pricey, but one of the nicest KOA I have ever stayed at. Excellent family campground with lots of stuff for the kids to do. Well kept grounds, and the sites were large and had grass between them. The thing that would have made it better for us is if they had a patio area at each site. There are a few sites with patio's which fall into the premium category. I would stay here again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park with lots of activities for the kids. Campsites are OK but a bit small and lack sufficient shade trees. Small dog park and fishing and paddle boats available. We stayed here the past 2 years for weeks at a time. Monthly sites are available at reasonable cost. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the better KOA's we have stayed in.The grandkids loved the playground and pool. The prices for many of the other activites(bumper boats, bouncing pillow,paddle boats,mini golf,and peddle cars)made one question the value for the activity .A few things we downgraded them for--The pool water was cloudy the entire 9 day stay, They only have two tables in the pool area with umbrellas,the laundry had four dryers not working, several games in arcade were broken. Not much of anything offered for sale in the little store. It's better than any place else we have stayed in Ft Collins/ Loveland so we will stay with them again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this KOA for 5 nights. There was a group of girl scouts stay right next to our site. The girls and chaperones kept walking through our site. The restrooms became quite dirty from all of the use and the restrooms were not cleaned on a daily basis as indicated on the sign on the doors. Most of the sites were occupied by individuals who were staying there year round. The office personnel were not too friendly to willing to assist with issues. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped at this KOA for only one night since we were heading to the Tetons. The park location was out of the way for I-25 travelers. Typical KOA park with activities for families like playgrounds, boats for their lake etc. Nice office store for supplies. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.
