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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the second time we have stayed here. Since 2007 this KOA has went downhill even more then it was. You just get the feeling no one really cares. The office closes early, and did not open till noon on Sunday. While I waited on the kids to shower I spent most of my time directing guests outside the office. Hopefully this place will get turned around someday. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a small campground. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a corner site with some shade (not too much). It is mostly gravel but our site was long and wide enough for comfort. We had all of the hook-ups including Wi-Fi and cable. You can walk to the Wal-Mart and some of the other stores which are next to the KOA. We were here for two days and enjoyed the local sights including Bents Old Fort. If we are ever in this area we would stay here again. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.

Price reflects VK discount for 50 amp FHU site. As previous reviewers stated park has tight short gravel sites. We complained about low branches and were told the guy who normally trims them did not come this year. Staff was very friendly. The dog area was weeds and dirt full of grasshoppers. I walked our dog to Wal-Mart at night for fear of snakes and saw one on the street. We did not try the cable or Wi-Fi but they say they have 57 channels on cable. I think we'll avoid this one in the future unless absolutely necessary. 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.

We have stayed here 2 times in the last 30 days, just by chance, not design. The $28 is for water/electric with the KOA discount plus taxes. Check-in staff is great. They trust you, as an adult, to find and park in your site after they mark up the site map. Others have commented on all the features such as the rec room, etc. I would like to comment on the restrooms, particularly the showers, which should be the Gold Standard for all other RV Parks to follow. The showers stalls are large and have an abundance of hot water and a nice shower head. There is dressing area with a door proving separation from the main part of the restroom. There is a very good shower curtain. There are adequate hooks for hanging towels, and clothes. There is a bench to sit on while putting on your shoes. But best of all, there is a clean plastic web mat in the shower and a clean cloth rug in the dressing area. The train tracks were no problem during our stays. Walking access to the adjacent mall is a plus in our book. Be vigilant at the campground entrance. While it is directly off Highway 50, it is on a curve in local street from the mall. Near by Rocky Ford and La Junta have 9 hole hold courses. $32 for 9 holes riding at Rocky Ford, a gold course built by the WPA in the 1920's. We camped at La Junta KOA in a Motorhome.
