This is a very nice park; we have stayed here a few times. Shaded. Good sites but can be not level side to side to a small degree (1 block). Staff is great. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Pull through shady gravel site. KOA had pool and hot tub and games. We stayed here and drove over to Ouray and Silverton (30 minutes to Ouray). Roads were a little tight. Very nice park in a nice little town. Would stay here again. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Ouray Hot Springs has been recently remodeled and the water is not very hot. However there is another one near Ridgeway (Orbis Hot Springs) which has nice warm/hot spring water.

Friendly staff, beautiful park with wide gravel, level spaces, with wonderful GREEN grass and lots of shade. Convenient to Natl park and Montrose with grocery store and other shopping. Nice little town. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights. We chose Montrose because we were on our way to Durango. This Koa is one of the cleanest we've been to! We got 32 stations on our tv. The grass and all the trees were great especially if you have dogs! The host and workers are great! Bathrooms pool and laundry room are exceptional. Downtown is very close to the park. Mi Mexico restaurant was Great and nearby. A lot of shopping here. Telluride is over an hour away. A must see! We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean & tidy park; the grass between sites was well-tended (we saw perhaps one dandelion!) and well-irrigated. Lots of shade trees, which we appreciated. Bathrooms somewhat older, but very clean and nice. We felt we had a good amount of space in our site, both lengthwise and side-to-side, and were able to enjoy spending some time outside at our picnic table. (We often don't in most private campgrounds.) Staff were helpful for the most part and always in sight. Yes, there are a lot of seasonals, but most of them are in a separate part of the campground from those of us staying temporarily. The campground was nearly full when we were there, unusual for this late in the season, but was nice & quiet. Great base camp for the Black Canyon and other sights nearby. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park and we had a great site. The only downside we saw was the large percentage of long term residents in the park who do not maintain their site well - and no enforcement by the owners to make them do so. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We were there solely for Black Canyon Of The Gunnison. Make sure you drive down to the river (turn right at the entrance station) -- curvy and a 16% grade - yes, you read that right! - but paved and good road. Our third visit and love it - did lots of photo work!

Based on the prior reviews and overall ratings, we were excited to stay here. We didn't see what the hype is all about, unfortunately. We did like being very close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, which was our main reason for being in Montrose. We stayed in Ouray a few years ago and had an entirely different (better) experience.

Pros:

*In town, 20 min from NP

*Grass, nice spot, easy in and out

*Quick check in

*Talked to the manager, Debbie at one point about a rude/difficult full timer and she was understanding and apologetic

Cons:

*Not a great part of town, we were yelled at rudely when our nav app "Waze" sent us down the wrong street behind the KOA, and we actually felt unsafe

*About 50% of the park are residents; left early on weekdays, not very friendly, and didn't seem to have a lot of pride in their spots

*No dog run at all - need it!

*Lots of mosquitos = lots of bites, and of course realized it the next day after lots of itching

*No fire rings

*Hot tub was small, above ground. Was hoping for a nice, big, in-ground jacuzzi, so we didn't use it, but had hoped to. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Dog kennel/day care place close, would use again. Pricey for 2 dogs at $4.50 an hour, ($55 our total) but safe, clean, and they were tired-a big plus. http://ironwilldoglodge.com 970/596-8709

Drive to the North Rim too! Bought fresh corn, homemade cherry pie filling, etc on the way in Hotchkiss. Lookouts amazing, not crowded.

Definitely drive to the bottom via Portal Road on the So side. We also did the National forest boat tour and it was great, well worth $16 and the time.

Beautiful park. I am not a KOA fan but this park is terrific. Great level sites, grass and trees. Excellent Wi-Fi, Stayed for a week. This park is as good as it gets. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

We liked the mature shade trees and the wide space between sites. Plenty of room for slide outs. A very quiet park. KOAs are always more expensive but I think this place was worth it. The only bad space is #1. All gravel, near road behind the office. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park in town, close to Black Canyon NP.

Efficient check-in. Self-park in very spacious gravel pull through sites with shady grass seating areas.

Spotless air-conditioned restrooms and showers. Large pool and hot tub.

Six washing machines and six dryers, $1.75 and $1.50

The free Wi-Fi (no limit on amount of devices) is reliable and pretty fast. Cable TV a little distorted.

According to us, your best choice in Montrose. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

What's not to like? Pool, hot tub, clean facilities, grass site with level gravel pad. Utilities at the back of the site. 30 ft of sewer hose as I didn't want to unhook my toad. Some turns are tight for 45' class A and toad. Good clean laundry. Helpful, courteous staff. Price is competitive. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Pretty KOA. Easy pull-through sites. Montrose is a great town to stay in. Good vibe but not too big. Lots of unique restaurants. Very close to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Rate includes one night at $10 because it was a KOA Cares weekend. Staff was very friendly. She looked at our rig and upgraded our site without charging extra. She was also the only KOA employee to ask if we wanted to use our points. Had recycling bins clearly marked. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the more realistic KOA prices. Good, level gravel sites. Pleasant staff, pool & spa out of service (only open seasonally). Wi-Fi was OK, a bit slow, and the park was easily accessed right off Hwy 50. We would stay here again. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice, clean park as others have said. However, the internet is throttled and limited to 40kB. It also blocks some services. If you are looking for a fast internet connection, don't come here. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.
