This KOA seems relatively new and has nice large pull through sites. RVs are not stacked next to one another with barely room to walk. Nice green space as well and they have the best K9 Kamp I've seen. Showers are clean and good size. The staff was great! I recommend this location when visiting western Colorado. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for 6 nights. Friendly owner and staff. We stayed in a Premium pull-thru. Sites are level with gravel and full side concrete patio with table and chairs. Verizon has strong signal. We used it for WiFi but think the park WiFi was good also. Did not use any of the other facilities at park. Only negative for the park is that since it is close to I-70 there is a lot of road noise if sitting outside. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

We spent 1 night at this campground and found the staff very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to ours. The location right along the Colorado river was picturesque. If you like to fish then you could do that right at the campground. The sites were well laid out and hookup worked fine for our trailer. Dog park was large for exercising our dogs. They had nice walking trail along river. We'll put this one on our list of good campgrounds to stay at while traveling. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a brand new KOA at the time we camped so everything was clean and fresh. It's a lovely setting with the river running next to it. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Folks in the office very friendly. Showers are huge and all tiled. We didn't opt for the paved patio sites as we were staying just for 1 night but they looked great with chairs and grills and fire pits. The sites sling the river are mostly back in. Pool and hot tub were already closed for the season so we have no insight into those amenities. We would stay here again

This park is only 4 years old and the attention to detail provided by the management is evident as they develop the park. The park is located on the Colorado River and the sites along the river are outstanding with a covered gazebo, propane grill, fire ring, picnic table and patio chairs. Also, the distance between sites is the best I have ever seen in a KOA. The extended patio areas really gave you a nice area for sitting. The park is a short 15 minute drive from the town of Glenwood Springs and there are local grocery stores and gas stations within 5-8 minutes of the campground. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Pullman restaurant in Glenwood has a great patio and wonderful views. Service was excellent. Ironwood Hot Springs is wonderful for an adult atmosphere. Beverages are available and there are a variety of soaking tubs of different temperatures and sizes. The Glenwood Canyon bike trail offers dramatic views of the canyon and river.

Gravel pad with grass and picnic table for pull through site. Nicely laid out office and guest area. Pool is closed for the year. Name of CG is a bit misleading if you are not familiar with Colorado as Glenwood Springs is about 20 miles east of the location here in Silt. Nice river access, be sure to have water pressure valve as pressure here is about 80 psi. I would stay again on passing through driving I70. You may need a 30' sewer hose if in a MH with a toad.

Very nice KOA. We had a back-in site that backed up to the Colorado river. Our site was nicely landscaped with a large concrete patio that included a covered patio, table and chairs, nice gas grill, a fire pit with two Adirondack chairs. We caught and released some rainbow trout from our site. We also had a Bald Eagle come make a daily appearance across the river. We would definitely stay here again.

This is one of the best RV parks I stayed at. The lot was level and I didn't even need jacks to level it. The lot was plenty long and with room for my tow either behind or in front of the RV. The overall rating is not a 10 because of the many weeds in the grass area and dead plants. The staff was very good and when needing to find daycare for my dog, there recommendation was excellent. The landscaping is very nice and mostly well maintained. The best part was the location. Right along the Colorado river and 360 degree views of mountains. Made for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Saw eagles flying and deer crossing the river to get to the RV park. I will stay here again for sure when back in the area. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need dog care, I recommend Dog Holliday over in Glenwood Springs. They took very good care of our small Morkie for six hours so we could explore Aspen. The staff was excellent from checkin to checkout. My dog was happy. As for eateries, I can recommend Burning Mountain Pizza and sub in Silt. It also is great for morning bagels and desserts like made daily cannoli's.

This is a real nice RV park located conveniently to I-70, but with little road noise. Check in staff are friendly and helpful and there is a small camp store and very nice lounge in the office area. Sites are spacious, gravel, long, level, both pull-through and back-in. There is no shade at this time but small trees are planted at each site. Many have a patio with table and chairs and a fire ring with grass between sites. Utilities worked well and the WiFi worked most of the time. Bathrooms and showers are modern and clean. There is huge grassy, fenced dog park that is large enough for even a big dog to run and play ball. It is located right on the Colorado river. My only complaints were the tiny laundry rooms that are undersized for a park this large and the robust prickly thistles in the grass next to our RV. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed for four nights. Pull through sites are easy to access and hookups are in a good location. Campground has a nice pool and jacuzzi and is well landscaped considering it is a fairly dry high country area. Grounds are watered. There is a very nice office and gift shop. Customer service is great. On two days of our stay, workers came and took our dog to the large dog park and played with her. Park is quite new with many trees planted but very little shade until the trees grow up. There are also back in sites with patios close to the Colorado River. Roads are well laid out and curving, but easy to navigate. This campground is about 20 miles west of Glenwood Springs with many recreational opportunities. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in this KOA campground for 4 nights while competing in the Colorado Taxidermist competition. The reason I mention this is that when my 6 year old son and I checked in the ladies at the counter were so great. He had done his 1st taxidermy mount for the competition and they made it a point to come out to our truck and look at his project. Made him feel so good! These ladies were fantastic. The park is spacious and very clean. Lots of young trees planted, cant wait to see it in 10 years!! Facilities are clean, pool was great. Wifi was good. Our spot was a premium spot backing up to the CO river. It had covered gazebo/picnic table/full size propane grill, as well as fire pit with Adirondack chairs overlooking the river! We are already planning our next stay here! While here visit old town New Castle 7 miles East. Very nice! Close to I-70 but the highway noise, while present, didn't disturb us. Very easy on/off hwy access. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park is new and recently made larger and improved. Trees have been planted at each site,but will need a couple of years to provide much shade. Staff was helpful and informative about the local area. WiFi is ok most of the time but early evenings it is weak due to large number of users. Tv is excellent. The community room is beautifully furnished and comfortable. The showers are clean and modern. You can see the pride that the work campers take in caring for the property. The swimming pool is inviting but the spa was being worked on while we were there. The property is right next to the Colorado river. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Truck Camper.
