Entire campground needs extensive maintenance. Asphalt roads, fine crushed granite over dirt so sites are soft and levelers sink in deep. Picnic tables needs repair and painting. Very poor snowy cable TV connection, weak Wi-Fi.Sites are not manicured or cleaned up after previous occupant. Game room smelled like urine. Pool full of rowdy jumping in kids with no supervision. Exposed and broken cable tv connections with analogue connections only-but very weak and snowy. BUT there are many, many yellow shirted employees riding around in golf carts. This park apparently accepts anything, regardless of age or condition, popups, old trailers, and tenants put lots of stuff out and about their site. Yes, the highway noise is loud and with the military bases across the street, you do hear aircraft..what do you expect? Would never come here again, but we usually do not stay at KOAs. Registration staff very nice. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly check in staff. Did not have a reservation but lady gave us the last pull through-#99. An OK 45' pull through but cars are parked along the river bank on same road for exiting. Very tight plus you have to watch for big rocks on boundary lines. I used the laundry facilities. Only 5 washers at $1.50 a load. 8 dryers but 2 were not working. $1 for 30 minutes.

An older, blond lady was unfriendly when we checked in and when our electricity went out her response was "they'll get to it when they get to it." However, the male, outside staff were very helpful and friendly. The sites were a little close, but not crowded. The amenities were outstanding with an in-house breakfast restaurant, pool, playground, etc. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

OK, you pay more than $40 a night and you have very small dirt spaces, no WiFi, no cable TV, and all you can hear is the freeway. Sure they have a pool and some nice family amenities, but when will KOA understand what travelers need today. Can the bad TV cable and install WiFi that allows downloading. Now that is worth $50+ a night. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Loudest campground ever. Army doing ammunition drills early every day. Trains all day long and Air Force jets hitting sound barrier most of day. Plus the traffic on I-25 is loud. Cable is a joke. Power lines over the coach interfered with satellite reception. The doggie park was at the far end of pull through sites. But we saw some of campgrounds close to Garden of Gods and pikes peak and we were thrilled with out choice. We had some repairs to do and the staff gave us number of very nice and very smart mechanic that came to us. We would stay here again. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Cripple Creek and drive phantom Canyon. Gorgeous

See Garden of Gods. Eat at Rudy's in Manitou Springs close to Garden of Gods. Get reservations for trip to pikes peak on Cog train--great fun.

Way overpriced at $49 per night - muddy roads, non-working cable, and non existent wifi round out the situation. Would only stay here again if nothing else is available. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Overpriced! An average or below average place at a premium price for the area. Very poor cable reception. Great staff, very responsive. Drainage problems everywhere when it rains. Many sites were partially flooded. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Two night stay and enjoyed it. Best KOA we have stayed at. We were in the very back away from I-25 along Fountain Creek by the falls. Rated this a 10 because they had a concrete pad to step out on with table, chairs, grill and wood burning chimnea. Fast check in and escort to your site. Would stay agian for sure!

Just spent one night passing through. Not as bad as some of the other KOAs we have stayed at in our travels. There seemed to be a lot more permanent sites in use. There is train noise and a little I-25 noise. Our 30 amp service was a little tough to get to. Water pressure was good. As most KOA are they can be overpriced. Would stay again if in area We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for a week in October and were very disappointed. We had reserved a Premium site several months before and the site we were assigned on arrival was nice. It had some trees to the south so we could not get any satellite reception. Shouldn’t be a big issue as they have cable, only the cable didn’t work. This was reported the next morning, and every morning thereafter to no avail. Then on the second day the 50 amp had a brownout on one leg and we had to run our all electric coach on 30 amp, which isn’t fun managing the power usage. This was reported to the office in the morning and we were told that the electrician was at school and would come by that afternoon. After no one came by as indicated we again reported the issue to the office the next morning and again were informed that the electrician was at school and would not be available until that afternoon. At this point we asked for another site, as the one across from us was open, but were told that it was only open for one night and no other 50 amp sites available and as it turns out that site was only used for one night the rest of the week. Again the electrician did not show and the cable is still non-op. Wanting to make sure that the electrical issue was not an issue with the coach I tried to go online using their advertised Wi-FI, well, it doesn’t work either, which was also reported to the office. I did call Surge Guard and our coach manufacture and checked all of their suggestions and everything was good on our end. The electrician did finally make it to our site on day 4 and thought he found the problem, but the same brownout condition happened again at about 3 am. To make this LONG story a bit shorter….We never got any of these advertised services during our week stay. We have been in and out of 4 other parks since that stop and have not had any electrical, cable or Wi-Fi issues. The office manager told us that they would give us some compensation for our stay but never credited our account. The KOA main office was not really concerned and no help at all. We will not stay here again and would suggest that anyone that does gets some sort of service guarantee. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Better than any other KOA we have stayed at. Easy location from I-25, friendly and helpful check in and escort to site. Large concrete patio, fire pit, grill and table and chairs. Paved roads, easy pull through. We would stay here again We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

You get the noise trifecta here. Army base night fire, BNSF railroad and I-25 freeway. Way too many extended stay sites for a KOA; some RVs not in good shape. Laundry room on our end had 4 washers and 4 dryers, one of which was out of order. Not enough laundry equipment for number of people in park. Sites are level and easy to get in and out of. Rate fairly steep. The reasons I stay at KOAs no longer exist. I can get this kind of park for way less $$. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Typical KOA, overpriced for what the camp is like. Gravel sites, fairly level, but when it rains some of the sites are underwater. Pool is very small as is the hot tub, the kids water slide is no longer functional, the hay ride is for kids and just goes around the park. The office has a nice selection of supplies and gifts/nick-knacks. Yes, we would stay here again, as the other RV camps we say in the area were terrible. Our RV is 38' long.

Had business in Colorado Springs for a few days but all the highly rated parks were full, so we stayed in Fountain. Asphalt roads, level gravel site, with concrete patio, patio table, 4 chairs, BBQ and a metal chiminea. We opted for the deluxe site as it had a sewer connection. The water/electric sites were on grass with none of the above amenities. Nice clean park whose only drawback is the many freight trains that rumbled close by blowing their horns. Suppose there is nothing the park can do about that, but if you are at all noise sensitive, this is not the place for you. We were not bothered as it was hot and we kept our A/C on all night. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park before, mainly because it is convenient to I-25. I can honestly say that it is not as nice as it used to be. Granted it's early in the season but with the amount of workkampers on site, it appears to us that they could be trying to take care of the sites a little better. Lots of weeds, and just not as 'neat and clean' as it used to be for a KOA. We had hoped to not unhook as it was an overnight stop but the site wasn't large enough to accommodate that so be sure and ask if you're getting a larger site. Staff was friendly and store was well stocked. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.
