In 3 years of extensive RVing, this is our first KOA. As seniors we do not need the extensive amenities/cost. This was, however, THE choice in La Junta. The park was fine on all levels although a tad noisy at times. Site was level, utilities were fine. Had no WiFi at the site the first day. Second day went to rec room and had slow but usable service. That evening and the next morning it worked. When it did not work I went to the office twice and one of the young people was supposed to come to our trailer. Never showed up. This was a bit frustrating. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Walmart is right next door, even a path from the back of the park. Little Caesar's Pizza and Village Inn Restaurant are within walking distance. Major attraction is Old Bent's Fort which is well worth a visit and free admission this year.

I reserved a full hookup site here for 2 days while visiting the town of La Junta and Bent's Old Fort. As others have said, I missed the road at first, but there is easy access from the road to the Wal-Mart right next door.

Restrooms were very clean and laundry facilities were great. My site was small (I have a 20' a-frame) just large enough for my camper but my tow vehicle stuck out. It was in full sunlight, but there are other spots that have shade. Beware that the shady areas have thousands of no-see-ums in the trees so you will need a screen room to spend quality time outside your trailer in the shady spots. My spot had no bugs at all. The pool is very nice and clean.

There is a opening in the fence to allow you to walk over to the Wal-Mart without going out on the road. WiFi was pretty much nonexistent during the day and very slow at night.

Overall a nice place. I had to cancel my second night due to my air conditioning going out. I was not given a refund for that night. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

If at all interested in the Santa Fe Trail or the fur trade era, do visit Bent's Old Fort about 10 miles east of the campground.

This was just an overnight stop, but all of our dealings with the staff were wonderful. We parked in the newer section which has long pull-throughs. The patio slabs were in an odd location, at least for a motorhome. The sewer opening was quite a distance from the water and power' so we had to jockey the rig around a bit. There is a nice dog park and play equipment for the kids. There is also a pool. We missed the entrance to the park. They used a truck for a large sign. We never saw a smaller sign. But, we were able to turn into the neighboring WalMart and come into the park on a small frontage road. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed overnight, was sited on the W side of the campground in direct sun on a 99 F day even though there were plenty of shaded spots available. Recommend requesting a shaded spot, esp. in the summer. WiFi was good but slow. Hook-ups are located near the front of the stall. making it a reach to get electrical/water hookups. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, nice helpful folks in the office. Spots are pretty tight with the pull through that was not really a pull through as there were many truck from pipeline workers parked making the exit from the spot impossible. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The Wi-Fi was pretty good at the spot we checked in. The cable TV was OK. The park is pretty cramped and filled with full timers from a pipe line. Water pressure in the morning was really low. About 15 lbs per my pressure regulator meter. Come to find out the owners were having the grass watered during the time most people would be showering in the morning. Didn't have enough pressure to shower. Hardly enough to even flush the toilet. Big price for poor basic service. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

There is very little to pick from in this area of Colorado. We are not "KOA" types, but wanted to take in the historic parts of this area, as well as Bent's Fort, so we went with this selection. Most of the park was occupied by road crews and other seasonal workers. Also, it is obvious that much of the remaining parts of the park are "long timers." So, as you look at number of sites available, that is drastically reduced by the above "tenants." In speaking with the front desk, he virtually has only 5-8 spots to work with until September, so if you are traveling through this part of Colorado, I would strongly suggest reservations. We had to make due with a 30 amp site, as all of the 50 amp sites were taken. The pool was being redone, so it was not available. The "dog park" was small, and sandy, but made due. The office staff was very helpful and friendly!!! In fact, I needed to fax some paperwork, and they were able to do that with very little effort. The laundry room was clean but only had 2 dryers for the 4 washers, which were always busy due to the seasonal tenants. I would stay here again simply because the office staff was so helpful. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped over at this KOA for one night. Not sure I would make this a multiple night stay as there is not much in the area and the facilities are pretty spare. Small playground not much in the recreation room. They have added many new sites on gravel with a picnic table on a concrete slab. The biggest issue we had is probably 80% or more of the campground is housing construction workers who have been there long term, while no one was unfriendly we felt out of place. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

The man who checked us in was very friendly. We had a pull-through with electric, water, cable, and sewer. WiFi is available for free. The park is very clean and has an elaborate "dog run." There are a lot of trees and plenty of green grass The restrooms are absolutely spotless. It is in a rustic setting with a train crossing nearby. There are a lot of permanent residents who work for the highway department and leave early for work. I would happily stay in this park again. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park is OK. The roads and sites are gravel with shade trees. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Very little road or R/R noise. We would stay here again. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

Very tight spaces. We have a 36 foot motorhome, and, after a 5th wheel pulled in next to us, we weren't sure we could get out, the next morning without unhooking the car. We made it, but it was a close spot. It was dusty here. The best thing about it was that Walmart is next door, and also two places to dine. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

The last KOA we stayed at was in 2002, the Lost Hills KOA on I-5 near Bakersfield, CA. After that experience we decided not to stay at any more KOAs. KOA stands for Keep On Adding, a 3rd person is extra, 50 amp extra,etc. We are now sorry we went against that decision. This KOA is several steps below the Lost Hills one. The sites were too short to leave the towed vehicle hooked up, and very close together. The roads were extremely dusty. We had to drive around twice because the first site we were assigned to was occupied. Several trees had branches hanging down far enough to drag on the roof of the coach. There was a tree at our site that prevented us parking in the optimum position in the site. Our vow to never stay at a KOA is renewed. we will never come here again. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

After reading other reviews of the La Junta KOA, we were pleasantly surprised. It has a good location next to Wal-Mart. It has level gravel sites. Everything seemed clean and well kept. The staff is friendly. It is quiet at night. After seeing a room at a local hotel, we definitely made the right decision staying at the KOA. It could use some grass. The sites are a little small. The price could have been better, but we didn't have a KOA card. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I am not sure why I would be disappointed, this is a typical KOA: overpriced! The site was level, however the problem was I was unable to see the site due to the over growth of the weeds. The site number was completely hidden. Probably didn't matter, we were the only overnight travelers. I spoke with one of the long term residents who stated the park has gone down hill for the past year. The electricity was fair; not the WiFi, it was down and the cable TV was not working either. They didn't offer us a discount but that is ok, we will not be back! There was a lot of road noise from Highway 50 and the Wal-Mart parking lot next to the park. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

Staff in office was very friendly and helpful. They recommended a very good Chinese restaurant. Short walk to Wal-Mart, restaurants and shopping plaza. Sites are very close together and not very long so park seemed crowded. Train across highway was no problem. Pool was open. Enclosed pet area. Close to downtown. Convenient to Bent's Old Fort, a National Historic site. This is the only RV park or campground in town so it has no competition. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.
