Our group has stayed here in years past (see 2012 review), but management has changed. New management did not honor the price we were quoted when the reservation was made. Also, camping fees for the entire stay are now charged when reservations are made. Cancellation policy has also changed but to their credit, they agreed to accept the original cancellation policy. If you are part of a group, get information on use of the rec hall, cancellation policy and pricing in writing. The rec hall was rented to an outside group without our knowledge ( that group ended up canceling, which allowed us the use of the rec hall and solved a problem for our group, as we eat all meals together). It is still a quiet oasis in a picturesque setting, but overall the experience was not the same as in previous years. - Mountainpeaks

This campground fits right in with the vibe of the Wet Mountains, which is one of Colorado's best kept secrets in terms of mountain ranges. As such, the campground has a bit of a wild feel to it. It is kind of out in the middle of nowhere, which to us was a good thing. It has a nice large sweeping meadow and also a forested section with mature pines and aspens that butt up to the San Isabel national Forest. Had an adolescent cinnamon colored bear visit our campsite at about 10pm one night. Very neat wildlife sighting. In general, very relaxed and quiet is the mood of the day. There are some very aesthetic RV sites that start in the meadow and then work their way up into the forest. They are fairly close together, but the way they stair-step and with the vegetation they preserved between many of them, it didn't feel cramped. Well kept and well managed. All utilities worked great. Only a few miles away from San Isabel Lake which has a restaurant/resort and boats to rent. - ckrajnik

Its a small campground in the mountains. Electric only and check the length of the sites as we could only fit in 5 or 6. Quiet campground but not on the lake, but some lake views.We like it and would come again. - TEXASBOY

Great hide-away state park. Had two campgrounds with hookups. Just happened to drive by and see it and drove in. We used our Sr. Parks Pass and it is really cheap. We were in a dry camp area, thus $8 per night. $12 per night in full hook-ups. Reservations can be made in advance by lot you want. We were right next to a river/stream. Beautiful. Camp host was wonderful and an inspirational lady to all she met. You pay on the honor system as you arrive at the bulletin boards at the entrance to the park. The rates were not clear as to type of Sr. card that gives a discount. Our Camp Host helped us. Bishop Castle is 30 minutes west and a great place to stop and see. We will go back here. - User3493

Very pretty campground above the lake. Lots of trails down around the lake and while we just stayed one night, there seemed to be a lot to do near by. The campground hosts were very nice and warned us about recent bear activity. You must fill up your water tanks prior to arrival as they do not allow you to connect to the water spigots located throughout the campground. Restrooms are pit toilets but modern and clean. They were also plentiful, the highest ratio of toilets per campground I have seen. We stayed here late September and the Aspens were quite beautiful, some of the best we saw during our vacation in Colorado. - Ocotillo

Great campground, friendly staff we were escorted to site by owner and he made sure we were happy with site and offered any assistance we may need. We had an easy pull thru site with full hook up, cable TV and great WIFI. The sites are level, gravel and plenty of room to park our truck. We camped in a 39' 5th wheel. Would definitely come back if we were in this area. The views of the mountains from the campground is fantastic. - Jim Moyer

We are not loyal to KOA's, but this is by far the best we've found even for their standard and near the top of all of our camping experiences. But first just the facts. Easy off and on I-25. The park roads and sites are paved/gravel and level with some concrete patios. Road layout makes it easy maneuvering in a big rig. Sites range in width, but most are adequate to park beside the camper and grass buffers. Every utility and connection is conveniently located and are up to spec. Everything worked! No surprises and lots of entertainment for kids. Facilities, grounds, recreations and luxuries were clean and maintained. Neighbors were friendly, but the staff was beyond exceptional.
The owner, lives on site and should be proud of his park. He moved us into a cabin, kept our food refrigerated and generally gave us confidence when we had mechanical problems with our camper. All other staff were just as friendly and accommodating and escort you to your site. Park fills nightly and stays about 1/2 full. - duster340

This KOA is right off I-25 at exit 74 on the eastside of the interstate. It is incredibly quiet (no freeway noise) even though you can see the freeway. The views are spectacular. We were in E-4 and sat outside our 5'er and soaked in the views of rolling hills and majestic mountains to the west. The entrance is paved up until the interior roads which are gravel and wide enough to get big rigs around. Fairly new small stone interior roads (no dust) and sites. Sites are long, wide, though not terribly spacious, but the key here is GRASS (real grass, not weeds). Hookups are well positioned, modern. Cable TV is excellent with lots of channels and for once, lots of digital channels as well. WiFi is EXCELLENT - which is a rarity. This is a quiet park, not a lot of noise. Staff is very present. In fact, one staffer was weed eating around the hookups and graciously asked if he was disturbing us (he wasn't). One thing he noticed is that our neighbors sewer hookup was a bit askew and as he continued weed eating, he FIXED the sewer connection! Touches like this make a RV park well worth the visit again and again. Check-in staff was very friendly and you get cookies! They weren't quite ready when we checked, so she told us to come back - we did, they were great! Offered us the local paper, and local food options close-by. This is again a nice park and one we would visit again. - ErinandCorbin

This is basically a weedy, potholed gravel parking lot with full hookups, only 30amp. The sites are spacious and semi-level. It is conveniently right off I-25; you can hear road noise. There is a slight sewer type smell outside. There is plenty of room to park to check in at the motel next door. No amenities, the bathrooms are locked, with weeds growing in front of them. My aircard worked fine. Still needs a lot of TLC. The motel sign says Budget Host Motel, my receipt says Country Host Motel. I would have to be pretty desperate to stay here again. You get what you pay for. - trussman

On the plus side. Long pull through sites (90 ft) with a good turning radius and good spacing between sites. Large area for parking when checking in. Easy access from the freeway without overbearing noise. Price is good for the area, for full hookups. Check in is easy at adjacent Motel. Negatives. Located adjacent to a small sewer lagoon with mild lagoon smell. Only 30 amp. Needs some TLC. I would use this park again for an overnight. - run2

I agree with the previous poster. This is an excellent place for an overnight stay. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful, and the office is open until 11:00 pm. Sites are level and long, some back-ins and 50 amp power is good. Views of the mountains are fantastic! We've never stayed at a Motel/RV campground before so we were pleasantly surprised by the welcome and the great facilities provided. Will definitely put Country Host Motel & RV Park on our "return" list. - hddebbie

Of the two campgrounds for Walsenburg, this one is marginally better. Sites are unkept with trash around from the permanent residents. Okay for an overnight stop but I wouldn't come back. On the positive, the site was marginally level and had 50 amp service. If you need service on your unit, BIRCO is right on site. - Orlan
Oct 2010 - $23.00
This was a one night stop for us. The hosts were friendly and the site provided a quiet night's sleep. There are no top notch attractions nearby so I cannot rate this campground with an extended stay in mind. It is dry and dusty here, but that is quite likely normal for southeast Colorado. - oldengine

We planned to stay here but left after driving around and checking the place out. Generally, the previous reviewer has it right--this place feels like a dump, and in addition to road noise, there was noisy construction equipment on site. No one was in the office. Everything generally run down. - Ken and Lee

Great park - have stayed here before. We like the sites in loop D on the east and outside and they are very private. Good pull throughs. Nice firepits. Good OTA TV and also tailgater view of south sky. Good (2 bars LTE) Verizon. Fishing can be fun if not too much algae. Nice 3-mile loop around one lake for bikes or walking. Quiet area yet just a couple of miles into Walsenburg. New grocery there is way better than Safeway - called First Choice Market on Walsen Av, north end of town. - chinookgeo

Wonderful park. Stayed in pull through site #71 on our 2 night stay. Site faced west and had a view of the lake with water and electric hookups at the site. Restrooms were clean and tidy. Staff warm and helpful. Tried the showers but took the first $1.25 to get hot water. Plenty of room. Will stay here again. - mdmnkcm

Another Colorado State Park gem, we stayed here as a base to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park, one of my favorite places. We prefer not to drag our big rig up into the mountains, so this was perfect, just 3 miles from I-25, and a 75-mile very scenic day trip to the Dunes. The Pinon hookup campground has 4 loops, which are all fine. Most sites have views of the Spanish Peaks, some the Sangre de Christo mountains, farther away, and a view of the pretty lake down the hill from the campground. We paid in the visitors center and were told to pick our own site that was not claimed on the post. The fee was $20 plus $7 day use (without CO park pass). Sites have electric hookups but not water, though many have spigots nearby if you have an extension hose, but they are shared so you can't stay connected. We tried several sites and none were very level. After finally getting settled at our perfect site, we discovered our water pump wasn't working. So we moved to a site next to a spigot and after spending a time leveling were able to connect for short periods to take showers, etc. Within the park is a 3-mile paved trail around the pretty fishing lake, with a mountain backdrop, and we enjoyed biking around it during the day and under the moonlight. The path is so extensively patched that it would be difficult to see a snake on it! It's also not very well signed, so follow the map. A basic public golf course is also accessible from the park, which has a restaurant. All in all a great place to stay - provided your water pump works! There is a double dump station upon exiting. The town of Walsenberg is not really a going concern these days, not much in the way of restaurants according to reviews. The old outdated Safeway has no fresh bakery or deli. - enCYCLEpedia

We pulled in around 5 on a Thursday. There were a lot of spaces available on a hot July day. Our space had two large trees which provided shade over our camper but that is rare. We hooked up to electricity but no sewer was available.
The lake was beautiful and calm and still, there was hardly any boats on it. I was longing for a boat of my own. There is a trail that goes around the lake if you just want a nice walk. We were interested in archery range because it was mentioned in another review but this is only a practice range with a few targets.
The bathroom close to us was large with a shower, but there were quite a few bugs in it, gnats and silverfish. There was a flush toilet, so I don't really understand why our side didn't have sewer.
The tent pads in the area are very nice, level, elevated, gravel with good drainage.for a barren type of environment, they have done well to create a nice atmosphere, trees have been planted and the sites are spread out and clean. - KSum

Pay attention to the park signage or you'll end up on the wrong side of the lake. The interior navigation of the park was a little tight for my 38' fifth wheel until we reached the reservation booth, after that it was fine.
Arrived in pouring rain which changed to hail during setup - fun!
Price includes site fee of $24 and park pass fee of $7.
Sites are on the side of a hill overlooking the reservoir and are, mostly, not level. Otherwise, they're fine.
Large with lots of room between sites. Electric was 30 amp only, no water or sewer hookups but faucets and dump station are available.
OK for overnight but wouldn't do extended stay here. No shade but site picnic tables have covers. - daviputnam

My only wish is that the One Way Drive thru loop was going the other direction. Our canopy and front door were opposite of our covered picnic table. NO OTHER Complaints at all. Fire pit, covered sturdy picnic tables. We rode our bikes around the park a few times. Every spot had a great view of the reservoir and the hills. Beautiful setting. Very well taken care of. Clean and friendly. - Deanne Havens-Michaud

Beautiful park with large sites overlooking Lake Pueblo. There is no access to swim in the lake except at a swimming beach, which is several miles away. Each site has a paved pad with a fire ring and sheltered (top and one side) over a table. There is a $7 daily use fee in addition to the camping fee. Many of the sites are pull-through. There is a paved bike path throughout the park, which has several other campgrounds. - SideBySiders

This is one of three campgrounds in Pueblo Lake State Park. This one does have electric hookups as well as flush toilets and showers (not available in winter months). We enjoyed our stay here. The views from our site and overlooking the cliffs were fantastic. This is a very dry region, so not much green grass or trees. The sites are very large, and some can accomodate big rigs and boat trailers with ease. Note, rate does not reflect $7.00 entry fee into park. - Fitzjohnfan
