Rate reflects KOA discount. Nice clean facilities. WiFi was too weak to use unless we sat in front of the registration desk. Electric, water, sewer all worked just fine. Narrow gate entrance, but once through the gate there are multiple pull through registration lanes. The "lake" was full of moss, but did have paddle boats for kids. Staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry was very clean. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest KOA that we every used. They have all of the amenties. I gave it a 9 due to the price. We paid $40, and that was a rally discount price which I feel is too expensive. But, the park is well maintained, the sites are a nice size. We will not stay here again only due to the high price. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This rate is the military rate. The park is clean and has much to offer if you are traveling with children. We travel with our canine kids and walking our pets for bathroom runs was difficult since there are sites on both sides of the roads. If you have a dog that is canine unfriendly this could present a problem. With that said, it is an easy commute to old town, 30 minutes to Loveland. During our stay it was extremely hot so two days were spent at the pool which is very nice, however some of the kids made it a free for all, so we left. No idea where the adult supervision was. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

A very nice park with concrete pads and wide grassy spaces. Staff was friendly. Has a lovely lake for walking and fishing. Down side is the expense. Cost is increased on weekends and many activities are available but all at extra cost. Laundry is beautiful but wash is $2/small load and 4$/large. They charge a hefty fine if caught washing a vehicle but "Dapper Mobile Detailing" is available for reasonable fee. Short drive to downtown. We have stayed here before and will again since no real option for Fort Collins. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a beautiful KOA with lots to do for families. The lake had a trail around it, paddle boats, and catch-and-release fishing. We enjoyed the pool, mini golf, playground & cook shack. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and everything about our stay was wonderful. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the nicest KOAs that we have stayed at. It is clean, quiet, friendly and lots to do, or just hang out and enjoy the nice grounds. Cement, level pads, grass between each site, very well kept. Close enough to run into the city if you need to but far enough out to not hear any traffic noise at all. We will definitely be back time and time again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an above average KOA. It is a great destination resort with plenty of things and activities for everyone. I stayed here overnight. Although it is about 5 miles off of the interstate it is well worth the drive. Peaceful, quiet views of the mountains. Clean restrooms and showers. Level concrete pads and plenty of grass between sites. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice RV park, better than many other KOA parks. Dirt interior roads, lots of dust is the main reason I marked it down. There is easy check-in and escort to site. Sites are concrete pads with grass and trees plus a table. There is limited cable TV, 11 channels. Many sites open enough for satellite use. Our Verizon air card worked well. Water pressure and voltage are both good. There is a family oriented with pool, playground, and small lake with free catch and release fishing. A Chuckwagon next to the lake serves meals daily. Some of the trees could use trimming. There is easy access to Ft Collins. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in one of their two "premier" sites that are closest to the lake. The site was large and private. They provided a table and chairs on a concrete patio. Front desk staff was hospitable and efficient. There are lots of family activities to do here, they just weren't yet open for the season. Great location if visiting friends or family in Fort Collins. The campground was dog friendly and they have a great trail around the entire lake. This is a true lake, not a pond like so many KOA's have. The only negative on this trip was that they started working on digging some ditches pretty early for a Saturday morning. Not everyone is up at 7 am. We will return.

This is an excellent RV park with a great staff. We planned on staying three nights but ended up staying for 12 nights. Everything about the campground was top notch and the little lake was just an added bonus since I caught several nice bass. It is about a 45 minute drive to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park which we visited several times. We also drove up Highway 14 and saw some beautiful scenes on the Poudre River. The only negative that we found was the trash bins were overflowing rather quickly. I think that is because some of the campers must have brought trash with them from home or were cleaning out their RV's for the winter. This wasn't the staff's fault. Overall, we loved Lakeside KOA and will be back in the future. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Opted to stay at this KOA based on all the positive reviews and glad that we did. The park was easy in and easy out with the pull through we requested being long and wide enough and level. Each site had a concrete pad. The only reason I gave it an 8 was because the entry road was a little strange in that you were directed to drive past a maintenance yard which did not have great appeal. Coyotes visit this park at night so you should keep a clean site and keep your pets in if you don't already. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice KOA. There was a very efficient and friendly office staff at check-in who were easily able to access my KOA rewards. We were quickly escorted to our back-in, full hookup spa site and shown our hot tub controls. The pad was concrete, level, and clean, with a nice paved patio. Electric fine, checked by my surge protector, voltage was steady. Cable fine but only about 12 non HD channels. Water clean but a tad low pressure. The free Wi-Fi worked haltingly. The campground was very quiet and well managed (no wild parties here). I enjoyed the 3/5 mile path around the private lake even though there was a lot of algae in it. The trash at the end of the rows got a bit full by the end of the Labor Day weekend. The pool was clean but cold and my daughter didn’t want to stay long. The women’s bath was clean but there was only one shower in the unit I visited. The men’s bath was clean except one toilet was totally plugged with TP on Labor Day. The kids’ amusements in general are abundant but most (like the minigolf and bouncy pillow) are rather expensively ala carte or extra overall pass. Do bring lots of mosquito spray: they were plentiful even away from the lake and especially at twilight. The hot tub was very pleasant and seemed clean except the cover smelled of mildew. I knew the price right up front when we splurged for the deluxe spa site with the hot tub: but now question my judgment a bit in the value for price, being about $30/night more than a regular site. My price included 2 kids and 2 dogs, my KOA discount and my cash-in of $10 in KOA Kamper Points. We will probably return at some point although not to the most expensive site. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is set way back off the road and is a nice quiet spot. It is a little hard to find since there is no large sign, but once you get into the campground it is very nice. Sites have a good distance between them, which is unusual for pull-throughs. Full hook ups, big picnic table, no fire rings, grassy areas with irrigation at every site. Roads are gravel and a bit dusty, sites have a paved parking pad and were easy in and out. There is a nice 3/4 mile trail around the lake and there are lots of activities for children. They are dog friendly, plenty of places to walk the dogs, we even played ball with our three shelties on their athletic field every day. The park is less than an hour to Rocky Mountain National Park and just a few minutes to Poudre Canyon. We would stay there again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this RV park. There was plenty for kids and adults to do. While we were there, the staff planned a family Olympics game, had an ice cream social, and a fishing derby. It was a very quiet park, and the employees were very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms were the cleanest we have seen in RV parks. Although we did not eat there, we heard that the chuckwagon meals were very good. We will stay at this park again. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park. Manicured sites, concrete pads, lots of space between sites and everything maintained and in good working order. There are a lot of activities available for adults and kids and the staff was friendly and helpful. This is what we expect, but don't always get, from a KOA park. We will definitely stay here again.
